China cuts rare earths

OK so rare earth metals really are rare. Well, they certainly are not common. China is cutting rare earth shipments vital to western technology now. This should be a cause in concern. People, we need rare earths to keep our economy going. Acutally, china rationing is killing us. I repeat we are suffering from a shortage of metals that are very rare. Let us look at samarium, It is used to make magnets that work in high heat areas. This metal is one of many. Hope we find a solution soon.
