#2 It was your comment yesterday, Mike, that led me to notice and post this article. And, with a bit of a delay, the same thing is going to happen to rare earths, now that it’s worthwhile for others to supply what China has started playing games with.

Between it and me, stretching into the distance, lies an artificial lake filled with a black, barely-liquid, toxic sludge."
