On November 2, 2011, the NCPA will convene key policy makers, executive branch analysts and think tank experts at a one-day Capitol Hill conference to discuss the explicit link between rare earths, critical metals, energy and national security.
Rare earths and a broader group of “critical metals” are essential to the high-tech and green-tech sectors — but these applications are just one part of the larger story. Critical metals are key elements of dozens of weapons systems and surveillance platforms that provide the cornerstone of our national security — with components all-too-often dependent on foreign sources of supply.
