How sustainable is computing? I spend several hours working on a computer each day and I am worried that this practice is not sustainable and/or not scalable to the entire world population. What do you guys think?
A study into spam has blamed it for the production of more than 33bn kilowatt-hours of energy every year, enough to power more than 2.4m homes.
I don't know what you meant by scalability.
There's plenty of power to power a laptop for everyone in the world, but not enough for a car for everyone.
I mean if everyone in the world wanted to use a computer as much as e.g. Americans do. Can we supply enough energy for that?
Can we supply enough energy for that while not destroying the environment or the planet?
