    Hey, we've got quite a few 'tonnes' of spent nuclear fuel rods that we've got no idea what to do with, think we can sell them too?

    I propose a new topic, "Chinese farts poisoning our Earth"

    Estimating the Chinese population at 1,330,044,544 people, based on statistical growth.

    It is known that humans fart about 1/2 liter of gas per day, of which 10% is methane, using these numbers we can say that China creates 242,733,129,280 liters of farts per year.  Which roughly translates to 85,720,396 tonnes/tons of fart per year, of which 10% (8,572,039 tonnes/tons) is methane which is being shot straight into our atmosphere.  In the long run I believe this is important and should be dealt with somehow if we're to help our Earth.

    This thread is....odd.  If the other countries are willing to take the stuff for a charge, how is the US or Canada responsible?

    OP: the United Arab Emirates make their money from recycling precious metals and reselling them.  A lot of this is from the e-waste you are talking about.  You want to cut out their economy?  Good job.  Most of those in India and China that practice this do it in better facilities than "over a campfire", because doing it the way you say is inefficient.  Don't you think that they want to get as much as they can out of this process?
    Oh, Europe can talk a talk, but last I heard, they have over 350 million people.  A lot of computer and electronics owners, eh?  Quit seeking out one bogey man, and realize that it's something being done in all nations.

     

    Read more about bullfighting? Come on now. Sorry I got the country wrong, but you got the idea. You are interested in what you are interested in.

    No we actually recycle those into medical uses, industrial radiation sources, reactor fuel, and weapons of mass destruction. It's quite economical. The leftover shit just sits in a warehouse and decays harmlessly, forever.

    Australia has debated taking on nuclear waste. If we did we would make good money from this trade. Many voters don't want to do it for obvious reasons, which is why the issue has been put on the back burner. My point is countries take other countries waste to make money and it is up to the citizens of said country to protect their own environments. Blaming the US for all of the worlds problems offends me not because I think they are great, but because such a stance only frees corrupt governments from responsibility.

    Look everyone, all you need to do is briefly look at the post history from this Bhug(parasite is more like it).

     

    This person traffics in hate. She suffers from eternal blame syndrome. This is exactly the same as Sanya Weathers has shown. These two only want to spread hate america propaganda. It is unacceptable!

     

    They have to carry the torch for every wrong, mistake, or any social injustice that the United States has ever had.  I think this poster should be looked at hard by the moderators. This shit is sick and doesnt belong here.

     

    We get it kook. Wanna attack the greatest country on earth? Pack your bags, im sure there are some other more righteous nations that will take you. You're lucky you live in the US madam, cause alot of other countries would show you how they like slander.

     

    The framing of this story is pathetic and it doesnt belong here in any form. If I want that type of smeared hit piece ill go to your hangouts.

    Choose whatever hateamerica.com website out there and you'll find this person yucking it up with the fringe haters. You're no better than the lowest of groups.

     

    You're dangerous miss, and obviously have an axe to grind.

     

    Im calling you out moderators! Shut this kinda stuff down. Its not news. Its not appropriate, at all. Shut it down! Your site is being damaged by this nonsense. You want to warn me, ban me, fine. If it gets attention to this repugnant hate pushing, than so be it. Ill take one for the community here and preserve the appropriate use of this site. We do not come here to discuss hate!

  • krulerkruler Member UncommonPosts: 589

    The whole post is so flawed as to be beyond a joke, no research has been done at all....All western style countries are exporting their garbage out, some are claiming officialy they dont but in the case of German and France this has been recently found to be very untrue, Britain has been doing it for decades even though there is guide lines againest some of it in the EU, but allot of people just think F##k the EU rules as they are mostly mad, like renaming sauages and cant have overly curved bananas.

    But as a bit of a researching for a laugh, in response to 'The greatest nation' comments...The world wide poll for the best cities and countries to live in.....Countries the USA came 34rd due to lack of health care, social and economic reasons and safety.Not one US city made it in the top 20. The best country to live in was Costa Rica, with Canada and Australia in the top 5 for both cities and countries to live in....

    If you set yourself apart, you just set yourself up as a target, world has moved on the old cold war bench marks no longer apply, deal with it and grow, or stagnate and wither. Even Russia has learnt that and has rebranded itself, admitly kinda rebranded itself as a dictatorship with nicer suits, but the thought was there.

    Well, he is right though, except for the fact that he emphasizes on the US. All western countries do this and not just with electical appliances. But also with oil tankers for example. If you didnt know about this, then you are maybe a bit ignorant. Large companies always try to bend rules or just go to a country that doesnt have the rules lol. Its just how business works.

  • mrw0lfmrw0lf Member Posts: 2,269

    Its rather strange that this universal passive attitude to what happens in other coutries is there business doesn't seem to apply to things that are of no benefit. Where's this sentiment when it comes to invading other countries under the banner of 'liberation'? It's not so cut and dry I'm afraid, if you're going to police the world and force your ways on them then you can't pick and choose which bits else it just looks a tad hypocritical.

    No, I don't think so.  A quick Google search will find many sites like this one that describe the challenges of high level waste and what to do with it.  Harmless doesn't seem to be the words they use to describe it.
