Rare-earth metals include terbium, which finds use in flat-panel TVs and high-efficiency fluorescent lamps, and neodymium, key to the permanent magnets in high-efficiency electric motors. Rare-earth metals are not indeed rare. The series of nonferrous metals is common in the environment. According to Design Chain Associates, most rare-earth metals are as common as copper, and even the rarest is more common than gold.

Part of the market pressure on rare-earth metals comes from new demands that green technologies has prompted. The market, including electric- and hybrid-vehicle motors and wind turbines, requires magnets.

The 17 elements that are classified as "rare earth" have become a more vital part of our day-to-day lives. Rare earth metals are the life blood of modern personal computers, batteries and alternative energies. To illustrate, there are nearly ten lbs of the rare earth element, lanthanum, in just about every Toyota Prius engine. Furthermore, rare earth elements are vital to military technologies. As opposed to the name, rare earth metals are not particularly uncommon and can be found in most continents. In recent weeks the US government has made significant steps to increase production of these metals, since they will have a large part in President Obama's overhaul of US energy.
