    Probably the only way to get this under control would be widespread and efficient recycling of damaged/used up car batteries. Or the possibility to use less energy-dense (less range per charge for the car) but at the same time much less energy intensive (during manufacture) batteries, when the max range is not needed. Or simply allow very tiny batteries which get charged up much more often, when practical.
