    Junkyard Planet by Adam Minter – review

  • Sam Ossea

    A brief look at one of the solutions to the scrap problem. In China, recycling scrap metals from old wires is now responsible for almost three quarters of copper production worldwide. Unfortunately, there is a downside to China's method. Pollution in recycling areas is dangerously high, and the methods used are hazardous to the health of those working in the plants, meaning recycling our scrap may not be as easy as it sounds. Hopefully we can find cleaner methods of recycling in the future.

I found this image because it reminded me of the centennial light bulb over in Livermore. The fields of burnt out bulbs surrounding the one lit bulb reminds me of just how many bulbs I calculated were wasted. I can't help but wonder how much money was made off of the backs of all the waste produced. Hopefully we realize that quality is more important than quantity soon, I'm not sure the planet can take much more waste being piled on it.
