Radiohead is a bit worried about electric cars:

My very naive question is "what happens to all the batteries when they wear out?" I am just picturing this huge mountain of used tires now being flanked by an equally large pile of batteries next to it. As electric cars and all things 'green' gain in popularity, are we in turn creating new kinds of problems and pollution with our solutions?
