I did a google search for the author's name. He seems to be some greenie activist who happens to write articles.
Of course, this activism somehow qualifies as "news" to the AP.

AP runs yet again another America’s fault.

If other countries find they want stuff our enviro-wackos don’t want us to have, then I don’t see a problem with it.
If the enviro-wackos insist we must always dispose of the crud, then they are insane, too.

So it’s our problem how the workers in another country do their reclaim? (IIRC, in the 1960s the workers at the lead-acid battery recyling place in my hometown were still smashing the batteries with sledgehammers and extracting the lead plates by hand.)

Anyone who thinks he is helping the planet with any single action is a doofus.
Conversely, anyone who believes the planet is being harmed by any single action is a double doofus.

I have a friend that removes components and chemically removes the gold. At $800/troy oz he does quite well.
I suspect that China and other SE Asia countries are doing the same.

Only Associated Press could turn recycling into anti-American propaganda.

Better to send that crap overseas than have it “killing us” here. Wise up. Anytime I see anything warning of environmental damage these days I can almost always count on it being a bunch of leftist nonsense.

(It's outlandishly inappropriate to suggest that I'm wrong.)
