Shere hypocrisy from the US & Australia, when they also have huge deposits of RE which could easily be mined but they chose not to due to environmental hazardous due to contaminations.

I guarantee you africa has rare earth minerals somewhere that we (the US) or China will exploit and leave the locals with nothing but a mess and a wealthy president

This is the reason why you shouldn't buy a new phone when you don't need one or already have a new one that isn't the newest phone on the market...

There are huge deposits in the US, we just need to strip-mine *HUGE* chunks of the United States. You might be able to guess why that hasn't been popular. There was an old man a few years back that was working hard to promote opening up several new mines in the US, but he said environmental restrictions would have to be eased way back before that could happen. Getting these elements is a nasty and toxic business.

Chinese are filthy backwards thinking people that can't think for themselves. If it weren't for copying the wests tech they would make nothing. The U.S will create another revolution and overthrow the chinese government, putting one they like in place.

Africa has heaps from e wast . crush them old pc and ph up recover it. and environmental impact for rare earth added to chicken feed is a consequence, its not utopia you speak off

There's a very simple explanation for this. China employees slaves which allows them to make a profit extracting these ores. I'm sure there is no more rare ores in China than anywhere else. The rest of us just have morals.

Rare Earths are eroded out of Granite then concentrated by wave action in ancient sand dunes contrary to what this guy says. In fact, most of what he says is absolute bullshit.

Lol, If China has the most rare earth elements it's "not good" but if US has it, it's okay?

billdale1 (8 days ago)
I winced when I heard your pronunciation of "scarce". There were a few other issues... as EVs continue to take over the car market from ICE cars, the terms "engine", and "motor", which have been used somewhat interchangeably in years past, are now being used with specificity--- "engine", is used when speaking of internal combustion; "motor", more and more, is being used exclusively when referring to the drive system of electric vehicles. To help avoid confusion, please go by that convention in the future.

Would be quite the inconvenience of the relations between china and US continue going south and the stop exporting RE to US and demand the US pay them their debt. US will have no money left to do anything and people will have to start working again and stop driving 600l V80 Chevies. Russia 2.0.

"Rare" Earth Elements aren't rare, they're just difficult to process at large scales: The West refuses to get into it because of the environmental costs (radiation from refining processes), because the "safe" methods are too capital intensive.

Is promethium really the rarest element? Because i remember years ago a documentary about an element on earth that there is only a few grams of, not 600g.

The U.S. has more than enough Rare Earth elements. Thorium is usually found in conjunction with Rare Earth elements and is not mined mostly because of misguided public opinion blocking their being mined. To get a better understanding of what we need to do is nicely explained in the video entitled "The Problem With Thorium". We are severely hampered, as the late George Carlin referred to, as Well-Meaning A..Holes!

MISC BITS (10 days ago)
The single largest problem with rare earth extraction is thorium - very slightly radioactive and _SHOULD_ be a valuable nuclear fuel. They can be used in LFTR designs. The hard part is "disposing" of the thorium - and the odd part is that if we developed LFTR reactors then "Rare earth" mines would be thorium mines with rare earths as a side business. Thank Richard Nixon for killing research into this in 1973

Good old China is doing what the west did, they have indirectly colonised Africa, got the corrupt leaders in their pockets and now control a lot of the food mineral exports and rare metals without and wars yet but let the natives revolt then their navy ready ports they build for almost free will have another use !!!!! and yet the west wants to wage war with China (and Russia who was a good ally once and will be again maybe )

1:36 - That's a really outdated copy of the Periodic Table. Elements up to 118 have been synthesised, now have official names. Check the Periodic Videos channel for the names, if you're interested.

He forgot to say that apparently North Korea has much bigger reserve than China of rare earth, is also A source of chip labor and provide as well others minerals more conventional.Plus the nuclear threat give China more leverage in the region to pursue his military expansion in the China sea. They have a reserve o rare earth estimate of 10 TRILLIONS !!!!!!!!!(the links are below) https://www.forbes.com/sites/ljkelly/2017/07/14/why-north-korea-is-an-untapped-goldmine-for-tech-companies-and-for-china/#5ea55aea711f https://www.businessinsider.com/theres-a-10-trillion-resource-that-north-korea-cant-tap-2017-9?IR=T

Jan Karel (12 days ago)
Blame the Chinese for a dirty industry and at the same time demanding them to expand their delivery to US companies? Typical American imperialist conduct. And at the same time waging war on Afghanistan in order to mine their precious minerals so that the Chinese can't trade with their neighbouring Afghanistan people. Yes, the US war om the Middle East is not just about oil, it's about those minerals, too. Sanctioned by US Congress and Senate. And keeping their own resources intact to use when the foreign countries can't deliver anymore. That's how USA über Alles works out.
