Electronics for the Holidays

If you plan on giving electronics as gifts for the holiday season this year think about what might happen to the old stuff.

I have written about this in the past where you can donate your old electronics or recycle them.

You seem to REALLY care about the enviroment. Have you ever watched an inconvenient truth? Very interesting and well created blog.

I'm a windsurfer, a great green sport using naural wind power. But our equipment's made from toxic materials and hard t recycle. A real dilemma and there are not many solutions to the technology that is required to stop us havng such awful materials in our equipement - not unless we take the level of technological advancements we have in our gear back 20 or 30 years.

You can see the ice melting in front of your very eyes at my latest post.
great blog and well done for spreading the word

Thanks for all your comments! They are really appreciated - I am sure all of you fellow bloggers would agree.

Recycling is very important. And proper disposal of these types of products is critical. My hope is that some day most products will be from recycled / biodegradable material. Unfortunately, not everything will /can be.

Brian, you have given me an idea for a post. Thanks. I was not aware of that. Hopefully someone can come up with a solution.

Has the official story of 9/11 seemed a bit suspect to you? The film below shows you exactly why it should. Don't be overwhelmed by the number of facts thrown at you. There are only a handful of facts here to focus on as proof that the attacks were enhanced by a rogue governmental network.

First there's former New York mayor Ruddy Guiliani admitting on ABC News that he was told to leave the World Trade Center to avoid the impending collapse, despite there being no such indication from the buildings' structure. This shows prior knowledge of the collapse on the part of insiders above Guiliani in the chain of command during crisis response. This also shows that there had to be another cause of the collapse that would cause these insiders to be certain of the collapse.

Second, there's the preponderance of eyewitness accounts of explosions going off throughout the towers prior to the collapse. The fact that explosions were heard in areas that were nowhere near the destruction--like the basement, lobby, and lower floors--points to the use of explosives. And explosives would certainly provide those insiders above Guiliani the certainty of a collapse.

Third, there's the collapse of all three buildings occurring too fast for a collapse not induced by demolition devices. Both towers fell between 10 to 13 seconds, and Building 7 fell between 6 to 7 seconds. Free-fall speed for the towers is 9.2 seconds, and for building 7 it is 5.9 seconds. For these three buildings to have fallen at virtually free-fall speed as they did, virtually all key points of structural resistance had to have been removed from the equation. If left intact, they would have provided resistance against the collapse that ,in turn, would have caused the collapse to fall much slower than a free fall. The only thing that could remove those key points of structural resistance would be demolition devices.

Lastly, there's the discovery of the hijackers' identification in the aftermath of the attacks. The fact that an ID turned up so quickly out of the enormous amount of rubble from the towers and was found by itself--not near a hijacker's body nor his belongings--shows that the ID was planted. This corroborates the evidence of insiders working within a rogue governmental network. The plant was obviously intended to keep the focus on the hijackers’ culpability, and not anyone else’s.

Using these core facts you can persuade others that this is conspiracy fact, not theory; and that this knowledge is based on logic, not paranoia. So please push for the truth to be publicly recognized for the sake of our nation’s security and sanity.

I have never, as I can recall, thrown away any electronics. I have kept old .. things. Whether it be seen as junk or not in other people's views. Well yes, I may be a bit junkkeeper but to the fact, it has always felt against me, to throw away electronic parts. Of course there have been environmental aspects considered but I have always wished to repair things and I also have done so. And I could say I´ve always had some old fascination"feelings" for electronics, a respect for it how I think it should be treated, not as garbage. I have respect for it, for me it feels kind of dishonoring this old fascination.
How can people throw awy entire computers? Why not separate the plastic or metal housings in order to recycle that faster, and locally. And why not give away comnputers that actually work to people who don´t have any money?
Earlier this year, by 11-year old son saw a 12'' tv in a garbage container outside. I though, would I even dare to pick that assumed junk, to try if it may work. But we did, and the tv was ok! How can someone throw away a functional tv?!
People are strange and sadly too many people!

I have a site, www.NatureReports.com that I am redesigning for the moment. I found some info here that I may include.

WOW! What a great blog....this information is so important!

I'm dealing with the same topics of environmental change on my blog and it seems like we have very different views on the problems and solutions that we as a people are facing. For more information on the topic of global warming awareness please jump over to my site.
