As I was winding my way home from vacation over the weekend, I encountered a very interesting story on CNN’s website that provides some food for thought. Here is an exerpt:
“A number of studies have highlighted the growing energy demands of computers. A 2007 report from research firm Gartner, for example, estimates the manufacturing, use and disposal of information and communications technology generates about two percent of the world’s greenhouse gases — similar to the level produced by the entire aviation industry.”
It’s a good article; well worth reading in order to help put our personal activities in an environmental perspective.
