Description
 
Jim Puckett & Ted Smith (eds.). Electronic waste or E-waste is the most rapidly growing waste problem in the world. It is a crisis of both quantity & a crisis born from toxic ingredients -- lead, beryllium, mercury, & cadmium that pose an occupational & environ’l. health threat. The U.S. & other rich economies that use most of the world’s electronic products & generate most of the E-Waste, have exported the E-waste crisis to the developing countries of Asia. The open burning, acid baths & toxic dumping pour pollution into the land, air & water, & expose the poorer people of Asia to poison. The health & econ. costs of this trade are vast & are not born by the western consumers nor the waste brokers who benefit from the trade.
