6. President Obama treated it as a national defense threat several years back.

He instituted a research program on alternatives and the program was having some success. But Trump ended it. I hope that the materials that the President Obama iniative developed can save us.

One problem is that the two most important Rare Earths are pretty much China and no one else.
