China Threatens To Restrict Rare | - At Up-Tube.com

China threatens to restrict rare 2 days ago   05:38

DW News
Another bone of contention emerged in the trade negotiations between the US and China. Beijing is has stepped up it's threats to stop the export of rare earths to the US. That means prices would rise and America's big tech and defense companies could be hit hard. Because Without Rare Earths, many products like smartphones, laptops, aircraft engines or guided missiles can not get made. Rare Earths are a group of 17 elements. Cerium is one of them, you find it in catalytic converters in cars. Bastnasite is used in the nuclear industry. If you want to make magnets, you need Neodymium. And Lanthanum is a glass-additive, used in lenses for precision optical equipment or lasers.
Rare earths are not as rare as the name suggests, but can be hard to mine. And if you look at production figures it's easy to see what it would mean for the tech industry around the world if China decided to throttle production, or would just be a bit selective about who it sells to. China is by far the biggest source of those rare elements. It supplies nearly 120,000 tonnes per year, three quarters of the global production. Australia comes a distant second with just 20,000 tonnes, followed by the US. The US used to be a big producer, but now digs only 15,000 tonnes out of the ground each year.

Oh the threat. is that why apple, samsung and other high tech company leaving China? This is not about USA VS China. It's USA, USA allies vs China. Wake up! Venezuela was powerful country and it put into knee with in 5 years for governing as socialist. Joke all you want but don't cry when all invest leaves China and your housing markets pops.

The tariffs are destinet to cause a shift in the supply chain. That is already happening. China can keep everything they have. This is what they want, for they believe they are too big to fail. They are going to be good at it. Central control always does that.Armies are a good example. All communist countries do not allow people at the scene to run what an army does, so they make wrong decisions for all the wrong reasons. Personally, I don't care what China does. They can do whatever they want. The less trade with them, the better. US citizens and their families do need to return home. I wouldn't wait too long either.

China should have done that already, after how the us-ameriCANT's handled them over one year!😉
lancead
chance for other countries to develop their own production of rare earth materials... China stops, others benefit...lol
Kiyoshi Ishihara
China did same thing in passed
To Japan
Results was disastrous
Japan developed alternative materials
Rare metal price plummeted and lost all demands. Lol 😂
Ryan VanGelder
Australia second 🇦🇺👍💪
nayanmalig
China will not enter into any war unless it's certain to win - China plans long term unlike Trump who is trying to win the next bogus election
dev abd
Brazil and Thailand had too these rare mineral
glenemma1
Australia can mine more if demand goes up. It can export the material to America.
Today Tv
Go ahead China! It would be the end of you. You'd become lonely as Russia is.
striving lifexxx
trumps only doing this as he wants rid of media and technology to put into government hands
Tom Kelly
We have lots and lots here in Canada. It is found with Uranium. We have lots of uranium mines here
Ali Kanji
such a twisted reporting by Germans. Americans threaten to punish china if their leader doesn't comply to orders of meeting in Japan.
Victorio Flores
Is rare earth metal only produce by China? So China supporters should go spread the good word that their China is the best the world had. No wonder their idol country had been spreading its money around lending to corrupt totalitarian regime with sweet terms to corner the rare earth metals. A blog says China lose up to 20 trillion due to trade difficulties with TRUMP.
Mark Andrade
In other words America isn't the greatest "land" on earth. Hence why the U.S. military is all over the planet helping to steal other countries natural resources.
CORRECTING HUMANITY
Trump is America's destruction
