Is the World Running Out of Helium?

To most people, helium is probably not thought of a “serious” gas. It’s not a very exciting gas. It has no odor. You can’t taste it. It’s not toxic. You can’t see it. It’s biggest attraction is that it’s lighter than air making it perfect for balloons. But it’s also used in medical devices, According to some scientists, we will soon be out of helium. But are they basing this analysis on a misinterpretation of the Helium Privatization Act of 1996, which merely turns over production to private companies?
