    seen quite a few similar vid.s Muz and this one is probably one of the best so far to illustrate all sides of the situation

    ..... can you imagine the amounts of gases they get through

    doing that anywhere else, by environmentally friendly methods would make it an uneconomically viable process ... the scrap just wouldn't cover the costs .... no excuse, but as long as there are places in the world like it, it'll never be stopped.... what they gonna do ... bomb Allang
    If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!!

    Agreed .. gas use must be massive ... Its the toxicity of asbestos, lead paints to name a few that they must encounter, when burning. Life is still cheap in these parts clearly, the injuries/deaths they must sustain will be significant, ............. sitting on a 2 foot thick H beam for example and cutting through it, not knowing which way it will spring and all your wearing is shorts and some flip flops

    yeh, but as you say life is cheap and someone else'd be doing it if they didn't
    used to be Pakistan was the breaking centre .... now moved to here ..... and will be somewhere else in 5 years probably
    as the guy in the video says .... the owners should be responsible for enviro-friendly disposal .... but they don't give a fk as long as it's off their hands and showing a return

    the scale of it is mind boggling eh
    If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!!

    Absolutely .. I suppose it must be ecologically beneficial in some ways though .. the cost environmentally of making all that steel would probably be more than the cost of recovering it and re smelting it, even with envorinmental problems ,just, theres the human cost involved .. and no western civilisation would entertian that health and safety cost

    more chance of a dinner party with the pope and Madonna than getting it done anywhere else
