The Real Carbon Footprint of a Web Page

July 26, 2007

If a banner ad falls in the woods, does anybody see it? Seriously, does a banner ad have a carbon footprint? Over at Internetnews.com, David Needle has a fascinating discussion about the whole banner ad Vs. print ad debate regarding carbon footprint. There is a discussion of the Green Grid and other socially and environmentally responsible ways to ensure your data center is as green as can be.   My take is the carbon footprint of a web ad requires an indirect calculation.

Fujitsu Siemens Primergy TX120

July 12, 2007

Since when did Fujitsu and Siemens start working together. This has to be the best kept secret around or I have just been napping on the job. But if your company is going to be such a well kept secret it helps that when you start to make noise that you introduce a server which has the lowest carbon footprint on the market.   The Fujitsu Siemens Computers (FSC) Primergy TX120 tower server's aimed at smaller businesses and branch offices. FSC suggests that's suited to office workspaces, along with distributed and SOHO applications such as retail in-store, back office servers and small office application servers.

The system includes either a 1.866GHz Intel dual-core Xeon 3040 processor with up to 4MB of L2 cache and a 1,066MHz FSB, or an Intel Celeron processor.

Save the Earth. Save a Buck. It's all good!

July 12, 2007

  I came across an article in Medill Reports. Medill Reports is written and produced by graduate journalism students at Northwestern University’s Medill school.   Medill reporter Elizabeth Ryan penned an interesting article entitled Six Tips On How To Save Green By Going Green. The premise of the article, “…doing something good for the environment is easier than you might think and can actually save you money, too…” is, to quote a colleague, “good business.”   It’s a big part of what the “mainstreaming” of green is all about.   Sure, every movement has its ardent proponents, who will be out there proselytizing their extreme message, like those who believe the Earth would be better off if the population dwindled to about 1 billion people, or that all air travel should be banned.   IMHO, that’s not “good business.”   But following simple guidelines and living a lifestyle where we are cognizant of how big a wake we leave behind, and working to minimize the impact we have on the environment is good business. Doubly so, when it’s good for business.   Back in my college television news courses we used to joke about the cliché “Fun. And for a good cause.” But I still believe if we’re able to ‘do good’ for the environment and save (or make) money while we’re at it, there’s nothing wrong with that.   ...     The point is that Elizabeth Ryan wrote an interesting article.

Greenocrite Hunt

July 10, 2007

I am growing increasingly concerned by people who are eager to point out greenocrites everywhere they look. Madonna is the latest target as a fund she controls has been shown to have investments in companies which are environmentally unfriendly.   Look, I write for a green blog but I do not live in a cave. I pledge to be concerned about the environment and do my part to make it better. I will not however give up every creature comfort which creates waste or uses electricity.   If Madonna’s investments aren’t as green as they can be she has the option to change them.
