    I know aluminium is in short supply. It's all about China throwing their weight around, read an article the other day, I'll try to dig it up, region you'd find it interesting

    Crazy Times 🥲
    Pretty sure I might’ve seen some Bauxite up near Weipa one year, if only we could turn it into something decent ourselves

    Tricky one @MB, @rustynail, the likes of the smelters in Aussie dont get much concession regards the cost of power, be it gas or electricity, and currently there is a huge proportion of LPG leaving our shores because the export price to buy is far less than the local purchaser. The govt could fix this in a pen swipe, by tighter regulation and add some protections into the local consumers. The counter point is the country moved into the realms of the global economy in the late 1980's, hence govts moved away from regulators into divesting to private ownership, which of course is profit driven.
    The mob I contract to has been in the news of late, deciding to shut down a major fertiliser plant at Gibson Island, due to cost of gas. the supply is avail, simply not economical as a component when the export of fertiliser has to compete on the open market where some countries have state owned and run resource companies and they extract the reserve to death then drag in avail export stocks from other countries, all the time pushing others out of the market. its a plainly viewable situation but again, there isn't a global regulator. I feel for the companies, business owners and employees. Its simply a case of being more bottom line profitable to export the raw materials like iron ore and bauxite to the likes of china then pay the penalty in so many different ways. This market regulation then lands into the hands of the manufacturer - same with oil and the cartel in the middle east - not that the sheiks have enough money now!

    Lack of aluminium to put beer in.Too much global warming (cos the green carnts wont allow nuclear power) .fuk all wood to build houses with. Because we send it overseas. Shitloads of animals extinct. Why? Because we breed like fukn locusts, and mother nature is working hard to put a stop to this.

    When will they learn not to trust who they are dealing with?

    My advice is: not to follow my advice.
