According to the climate change theories the summer's are getting warmer, winter's are getting colder etc. There's bound to more bad winters like this one not too far off and there'll be another fiasco about there being no salt.

That video was made last year when there was a big hullaballo in Scotland about there being "no salt " and "we're running out, we're running out" etc.

Likely chance that the price of salt will rise as the winter's get colder/icy-er ? I believe there's some councils round Ireland buying salt in from Spain.

There's no conspiracy, theres only 2 salt mines in the whole of the UK, salt isnt a renewable resource. Once its gone its gone, its different from sea salt.

People should get a dose of george Callin.

People who worry about nature, are not really worried about nature, they more worried about not having comfort, warmth and a really cosy house.

The world wont run out of salt or any mineral. Nature will find a way to recycle it, replace it, or remove it if it needs to be. Nature can look after itself.

If Nature doesnt want humanity on the planet you wont have much time to worry about salt running out.

Are you suggesting that Nature is an entity that makes conscious decisions or that nature will balance out naturally?

Nature will always balance out naturaly once man has gone, look at Chernobyl for example.

Has to what Mysteroius is on about or what it has to do with Salt shortage, ive no idea.

I also want to point out that sand isnt a renewable resourse either. You cant just go down the beach and start removing it.

Coal, produced over millions of years, is an inherently finite and non-renewable resource on a human time scale.

Here is a few other resources which could be gone in your life time, Natural Gas, Fissionable materials, Helium, Transition Metals, Precious Metals, Phosphorus and Water.

So tell me again how the world wont run out of any non renewable resource?

The universe is conscious as is nature. Yes. Our planet is a living organism. Its living and it heals itself.

wtf. there's no fears about running out of salt. they ran out of stockpiled supplies. there's a bit of a difference. the councils used up in a few weeks what they expect to use in a year.

I'm not sure there's a conspiracy here.

In terms of current availability, nations have stockpiles of resources for handling winter conditions. In exceptional winters, those stockpiles can be exhausted before conditions are alleviated.

There could be a shortage of something like salt, either locally, or indeed on a wider scale, caused by exceptionally harsh winters. There could even be a point in the future where we need to look at alternatives, if demand outstrips availability from existing sources.

There doesn't seem to be a conspiracy anywhere, though.
