Sustainable Technology: Our phones are depleting natural resources [INFOGRAPHIC]

Sustainable Technology: Our phones are depleting natural resources [INFOGRAPHIC] | scatol8® | Scoop.it
This infographic takes a look at this troubling technology trend, which is depleting the planet's supply of Rare Earth Elements.

Apple sold a record 5 million iPhones the first weekend the phone was on the market. And unlike in the iPhone’s early days, the latest Apple smartphones are not primarily being purchased by first time owners.

But did you ever stop to think about what happens to all those iPhone 3, 3GS, 4 and 4Ss now deemed out of date? While there are many recycling programs available, most smartphones are not efficiently thrown out.

Apple’s iPhones is far from the only culprit — most every smartphone, hard drive, hybrid car, satellite, MRI machine and GPS, along with dozens of other tech gadgets, are made from Rare Earth Elements.

Paint By Particle: A Beautiful Climate Model By NASA

Paint By Particle: A Beautiful Climate Model By NASA | scatol8® | Scoop.it
With all of the satellites in our skies, NASA collects up to 30 million observations of the Earth each day.
But it is only when these observations are layered into one picture, called climate modeling, that we get to see the wispy beauty of our atmosphere. The video below, titled Paint By Particle, was published by NASAexplore and allows us to “watch as dust and sea salt swirl inside cyclones, carbon bursts from fires, sulfate streams from volcanoes—and see how these aerosols paint the modeled world.” Enjoy!
