China controls most of the rare element mines in the world. About 90%. Rare elements are the things that put color into your glass.

If fuel prices really explode in Europe glass could become to expensive to even make. Of course *I*have enough glass for the rest of my life so I don't have to worry about that! China has been buying up oil properties all over the world in anticipation of rising fuel prices happening so they should not be hurt as much..
