It's a good sign that this issue is rising to the surface. From the article:

At one point in our interview, Gary Cook commented that “the Internet is the single biggest thing we’re going to build as a species. This is something if we build it the right way, with the right sources of energy, could really help power our transition to renewables. If we build it the wrong way, it could actually exacerbate the problem.” While it might be a little hyperbolic to declare the Internet as civilization’s greatest achievement (I’m personally a fan of vaccinations), there’s no shortage of VCs and CEOs who believe and evangelize that position. But embracing such a grandiose statement about the network also means taking a radical responsibility for it and recognizing that how we build the future frankly determines whether we have a future at all.

The data centers that support the Internet use a huge amount of energy.

"Google is one of the latest mega-corporations to commit to the principles of a circular economy—one that keeps "technical nutrients" like plastic and silicon out of the landfill, and trims out wasted water, energy, food, and land."

Most of us think we are immune to the effects of advertising, and media messages in general. But in fact, media exerts a powerful influence on how we think about our food and farming system. Join Food Sleuth Radio host and Registered Dietitian, Melinda Hemmelgarn, for her interview with Robert McChesney, Ph.D., Gutgsell Endowed Professor in the Department of Communication at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and co-founder ofFree Press . McChesney will discuss advertising (commercial propaganda), money and politics as they influence our food and farming choices. The need for independent media and media literacy has never been greater.

New climate change/clean energy ad uses language framing of Republican campaigns. I wonder if it works.

NextGen Climate, the outside group founded by the billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer, is airing an ad on CNBC during the debate Wednesday that will cast climate change as an economic issue.
