So, I’m a wannabe computer geek, and that combined with my environmental inclination leads me to something of a hypocrisy. I like leaving my computer on all the time, or at least a lot of the time, but every moment that I’m away from my comp and leaving it on, I feel mountains of guilt. I hadn’t heard before that AMD (a company that makes computer stuff, most notably processors) is releasing a new processor that will cut computers’ energy use by two-thirds or so. That’s really wonderful. A lot of people leave computers on a lot of the time (more every day), and if this sort of processor diffuses throughout the market, that means that boom in computer use will not mean quite as big a boom in energy waste.
