Environmentalists dirty little secret, rare earth elements

So called 'green' technologies are in fact not green at all. We have been mislead into thinking we are doing a good deed for the plant by using a compact fluorescent light bulb, buying a hybrid car, using wind and solar energy. Meanwhile these technologies require rare earth elements and the process of extracting them is extremely harmful to the environment and human health. We are replacing one environmental problem with another. Rare earth elements are found in many modern day conveniences, smart phones, lap tops, tvs, we need to develop better methods of recycling these elements and methods of producing 'green' technologies that truly are green.
