Coming Soon: Scenes from a Junkyard Planet

For the last couple of years, China has been the world’s largest automobile market, supplanting the United States. So, for the last month or so, I’ve spent some time trying to figure out what on earth China plans to do with all of those cars once they’re no longer road-worthy. More on my conclusions, soon. In the meantime, an image from the reporting trips.


Starting August 5, I’ll be posting more photos like this one, in a series I’m going to call Scenes from a Junkyard Planet that’ll run every day until the release of my first book, Junkyard Planet: Travels in the Billion Dollar Trash Trade, on November 12.
