    E-Waste

    Advertisement



    Has anyone seen the special on currentTV? From what I gather, its a video blog on information technology in China.The censored internet, and media..But what caught my eye was, it seems that our old computers, TV's and old electronics are making their way to villages in China, in mass quantities.. Where the devices are disassembled, and salvaged for their parts, and heavy metals....It turns out, that the people living in these small villages are taking the E-waste into their homes to work on.. And entire villages and towns are underfoot to these often toxic components. Some of the people living in these villages, didnt even want to be on camera. Im assuming that the pay might be pretty good. But it did look as it was described, like HELL>>>>

    Just thought I would share a little bit.. And keep my ol puter, till it disintegrates in the garage....
    Which, with the weather here in Florida, might be kinda soon...
    Ugh, couldnt think of anything to change it to.
