China’s Control of Minerals and Metals Impedes U.S. Quest for Clean Energy

Objectivity 4.4 | Credibility 4.5 | Relevance 4.7

The major problem with the U.S. transition to green energy is that China controls the minerals and metals necessary for producing clean energy. Frank Fannon, former Asst. Sec. of State for Energy Resources, says infrastructure funds should be appointed first to developing mining in North America to reduce dependency on China because the transition will not come without metals and mining. This should be executed sensibly while bringing returns for investors.
