Supplies of Rare Earth Elements Exhausted By 2017

miniver Re:No Evidence Offered (958 comments)

Here's some more evidence, this time from Indium, Corp. Go grab their report, "INDIUM AND GALLIUM SUPPLY SUSTAINABILITY September 2007 UPDATE". The conclusion states:

Indium and gallium containing raw materials exist abundantly worldwide. The metals industry has been investing in process improvements and capacity over the last few years to bring more indium and gallium to the market. This industry can and will continue to do so if the demand is there. As described, price volatility and short-term availability will continue intermittently due to numerous factors including the time lag required to install additional capacity, government regulation, and the lack of information suppliers receive about future demand. Overall, we anticipate adequate indium and gallium supply and continued price affordability for current and new applications.

As much as I despise BASIC, he makes a good point — it's hard to knock a language where 'Hello, World' is a one-line program:
10 PRINT "Hello, world"
