Does blaming China for these resources makes for easy headlines.?

‘The Independent’ reports Neodymium is one of 17 metals crucial to green technology. There’s only one snag – China produces 97% of the world’s supply. And they’re not selling.

MY VIEW: How convenient it is to ‘blame’ a country eg. China , rather than seeling for alternatives sources of this resource . If these earth metals are really in such incredibly scarce supply, we should be putting high priority into resreaching for the next levelof other options. Or, as we can just blame another nation! Again!
