It is all so good may I have another! But stop, really ...
When you stop driving a car, using electricity, wearing clothes that have been dyed, eliminate plastic from your life stop using laundry detergent, and eliminate every other environmental issue in your life, I'll take you seriously. In the meantime, continue to enjoy the progress that mankind has made and learn to live with a few inconveniences that have resulted along the way. You might want to spend some time in Malaysia and determine if the average Malaysian citizen could benefit from additional economic opportunity in their country?
Is there anyone who doesn't understand that the opposition to LYNAS in Malaysia is being funded and driven by the Chinese? Unfortunately, they have deep pockets and lots of incentive to block LYNAS as long as possible. IMHO
Well what are they going to do, bribe some judges? Messing with a foreign country's legal system is an extremely dangerous game to be playing, especially in this context. If the lid got blown off (the Barsian Nasional has shown with the TOL that they clearly want this thing to go forward, so guaranteed they are looking for any PRC monkey business), it wouldn't be just embarrassment for China. As we're talking metals that Raytheon and Lockheed need for GBU's and HUD's for fighters to arm the free world, it would definitely sour China's political relations with the majority of the world across the board. Way too risky for the PRC's style.
Don't tell me that you don't understand the one and only reason lynas ship Australian-mined REE oversea and overland at considerable expense to Malaysia is to circumvent the more strigent environmental regulations back in Australia. This thinly-veiled exploitation attempt doesn't even pass the smell test. Malaysians should demand Lynas be shipped back whence it came.
