E-Waste had been a dangerous worldwide problem before these recent headlines cited warnings by the UN:
- Global E-waste Surging: Up 21% in 5 Years
- E-waste: 82 percent of World’s E-Waste Not Recycled
- UN reports global e-waste production soared beyond 53 million tonnes in 2019
- World’s E-Waste ‘Unsustainable’, Says UN Report Citing China, India, and US
Scientists have been warning about E-Waste for a long time and continue to do so. Some environmentalists have been warning about it too. Regardless, the increasingly opposed worldwide “Race to 5G” (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11. 12, 13) for increasingly opposed “Smart Cities” (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5) will undoubtedly make the E-Waste problem much bigger and scarier even without AirPods contributing to it.
