On 2012-03-13 President Obama announced filing a new WTO filing against China's REE export quotas. China successfully leverages their REE monopoly to capture high-tech manufacturing jobs, and is part of the reason companies like Apple construct consumer products in China... REEs are found in all manner of phones, GPS, wind turbines, solar panels, hybrid cars and military hardware. REE are NOT rare. REE used to be produced in USA. If REEs are so important, why aren't they produced in USA today? THORIUM REGULATION.

Jim Kennedy & John Kutch explain: Thorium is NOT dangerous. It is key to unlocking "green" jobs, bountiful energy and high-tech manufacturing jobs. The clock is ticking on this. Pursuing China via WTO is fine, but that can NOT be our only response! We need to produce our own REE. ASAP.
