The earth is heating up, so time to make some changes!
The internet is one of the World’s largest polluters
Every bit is stored somewhere. And every bit that has to be readily accessible is stored on a server that is up and running 24/7. This obviously consumes a lot of energy. Not only to keep the ‘motor’ running, but also to cool the servers. Actually, about “40% of all of the energy used to power the internet is used to keep those servers from overheating.” (source: GreenGeeks).
