Iain McKenzie (Iain_mckenzie) | 1578 comments Dreaming the future of Energy

Dreaming the future of Energy Currently working for ITER, the international fusion reactor under construction in France, where he was director of communication from 2011 to 2015. His most indulgent colleagues qualify his career as « diversified ». Having a PhD in physics-chemistry, his passions drive him towards both science and literature, and have allowed him to hold responsibility positions in the European Commission for over twenty years. Professor at the University of Brussels, he is also an author and international speaker. He is currently finishing a book on the history of the ITER project. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

With superconducting minerals from Afghanistan, maybe?

Iain McKenzie (Iain_mckenzie) | 1578 comments Chinese have massive resources of Silicon.

Could be wrong, but I think they're also in Afghanistan to control the 'raw earths' market through supply, not out of necessity for themselves as they have a majority share there?

Iain McKenzie (Iain_mckenzie) | 1578 comments Neodymium Is In Demand And China Controls Its Supply

Powerful magnets are necessary for an iPhone to vibrate or a Tesla Model 3's motor to spin. If you combine neodymium with iron and boron, you can make a neodymium-iron-boron magnet, which is the most powerful type of permanent magnet ever created. And demand for these magnets is on the rise. But 80 percent of the world's neodymium comes from China.
