Good story. However, given cable and set top boxes, the "avalanche" of discarded TVs is as likely as was Y2K. In addition, the US EPA testified before Congress that electronics products do not constitute a hazard in Subtitle D landfills because the pH in a landfill is close to neutral. As a result, leaching of lead or other toxic elements is highly unlikely.
