Tsunami & Eruption in Indonesia on Monday Kills Hundreds

October 27, 2010 § Leave a comment

More than 250 people have died from a tsunami, and at least another 28 in a volcanic eruption, just two days after a massive earthquake struck offshore in Indonesia.

The 7.7 magnitude quake struck Monday afternoon triggering a ten-foot tsunami that wipes away hundreds of homes.  Less than 24 hours later, a massive volcano, Mount Merapi, began to erupt.

your recycling is poisoning the poor!

Business’ and individuals “donate” their broken computers to “kids in Africa” …because it is cheaper then disposing of them properly. (they also get a tax write-off) …The computers arrive to these schools …only to become toxic waste that the organizations are not equipped to discard of safely.

We export enough e-waste each year to fill 5126 shipping containers. If you stacked them up, they’d reach 8 miles high – higher than Mt Everest, or commercial flights.

Simply stated, we are solving our e-waste problem by exporting it to poor countries around the globe.

 

In addition many electronics recyclers inside the US don’t actually recycle the electronics they collect. They can make more money by selling the old electronics to waste traders. These traders then send them to developing countries where health, safety, environmental laws, and citizens’ rights are very weak. Workers earn slave wages sifting trough the toxic rubble looking for salvageable goods.
