The following information will not stop “extractive economy” plundering, but fwiw, Chomolungma (“Holy Mother”) is the most sacred mountain to many people living in the area, who have inhabited the region long before Chinese takeover.

Happy Green Mining and development of a sheltered yet oxygenated 'nuff area with greenhouse, waterage and maybe algae outprovisions, China. Robomasons, whew! (Can’t be powering equipment on fuels up there.) Easy on the casual multiprovisioning of nuclear power on the place, there’s the mountain cats to do right by.

Lord, we don’t need another mountain,
There are mountains and hillsides enough to climb.
What the world needs now,
Is Lithium,
It’s the only thing that there’s just too little of.
What the world needs now,
Is Lithium,
No, not just for some but for everyone.
