Sodom & Gomorrah, aka Agbogbloshie

This story appeared on a news website I found while gathering daily tech headlines... in case you've forgotten where your e-waste is likely to end up.

Sodom & Gomorrah (Kevin McElvaney) - RF CafeAccording to German photographer Kevin McElvaney, the 40,000 Agbogbloshie (near Accra) locals call their land Sodom & Gomorrah, after the Biblical city that was destroyed by fire. This is just one small part of the world where such activities are daily routine for those living in abject poverty.

BTW, similar sacrifices are made to build our e-devices in the first place during the extraction of raw materials and during manufacturing and transportation of finished goods. Many of our clothes, vehicles, appliances, tools, sports items, food containers, and other items pass through these conditions at some point in their life cycle.

If one poor soul in a faraway place is intoxicated by a product whose provenance includes your ownership, then you are as guilty as the rest of us for supporting it since these conditions are well known. I'm just say'n...

Here is the first page of results from a Google image search on "e-waste."

1996 - 2022
Kirt Blattenberger,

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
