Basically, U.S. government mismanagement has meant that the world is in danger of running out of helium. Is this a problem? Yes. Yes, it is a problem, because helium is used for a bunch of important scientific and medical purposes, and is a nonrenewable resource (it literally just floats off into outer space once it’s released). When it’s gone, it’s gone. And we’re all kinda fucked.
