Can the Internet Survive Climate Change?
On the energy consumption of the internet with a nice feature of the solar version of #LowTech Magazine that I worked on.
"It is the largest coal-fired machine on the entire planet, accounting for 10 percent of global electricity demand. And the internet’s #climate impact is only going to get worse: Around half of the world has yet to log on—a presently disconnected population of more than three billion people eager to begin streaming videos and updating Facebook accounts. The internet’s cut of the world’s electricity demand will likely rise to 20 percent or more by 2030, at which point it will produce more carbon than any country except China, India, and the United States. "
While setting up #Icecast for LURK, I took some notes, like we always do, for future ref and in case that's helpful for others.
