Why It Matters

The internet produces about 3.8% of global carbon emissions, which are rising to keep up with increasing demand. As we build more data centers (the backbone of the internet), we need more and more electricity to power all the servers that live in those data centers. Most of this is from data-intensive tasks such as video streaming.
