An article published by the World Economic Forum (WEF) on July 18th, 2022, argued the need for a ‘clean energy revolution’, and declared critical metals a focal point. Apparently mining new metal is not enough and the WEF wants to develop what they termed ‘a fully circular economy’. Step one of this process, according to the WEF, would be to ‘go from owning to using’. It then explains that the average car in England is only used 4% of the time and therefore not ‘resource efficient’. It goes on to suggest that a ’car sharing’ program can suffice and that individuals be given ‘user profiles’. If user profile based car sharing is the only option for a person, it would provide a lot of control to the government (or whoever controls those profiles) to restrict people’s ability to get around in a vehicle.
