Faced by Drought, China Looks to Coal to Provide Ample Energy

Unusually dry conditions in China are forcing the country to fire up its coal power plants to supply its energy needs. The world’s largest polluter has been feeling the effects of global warming in recent years amid extreme weather events, including heat waves, forest fires, flooding and record-low rainfall. These events have put massive pressure on China’s energy system, forcing it to produce significantly more energy to supply the increasing energy demands of the country’s households. At the same time, China has also been forced to contend with a global energy crisis that reduced energy supplies while significantly increasing its…

Uncertainty Persists on Whether Precious Metals’ Rally Can Last

After several months of relatively lackluster performance, the precious metals market has rallied amid increased investor interest in gold and silver. These metals have traditionally attracted plenty of investor interest during times of political and economic turmoil because they do not depreciate and allow investors to preserve their wealth through economic events like inflation and recession. However, even though the global economy has been in turmoil for the past few years and the world is wracked with geopolitical tensions from the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war, precious metal prices have not gone up. This is primarily because consecutive interest rate hikes by…

Environmentalists Express Concerns About Deep-Sea Mining

The global transition to green energy has signaled the need for critical metals such as nickel and cobalt. Solar, wind and electric vehicle technology will require these metals in immense quantities to support worldwide climate change efforts for the next few decades. However, current supplies are dwindling, and the existing recycling infrastructure isn’t sufficient enough to extract enough metals from dead electric vehicle batteries. Even if this recycling infrastructure and policies support mass recycling, it may not be enough to supply the world’s increasing demand for minerals. Mining companies are now looking to a new and unexplored frontier to help…

GAO Says Many US Companies Aren’t Submitting Conflict Mineral Data

A recent report from the Government Accountability Office has revealed that some American companies aren’t submitting conflict mineral reports detailing potential ties to illicit Central African minerals.
