China Leading The Way on Green Technology
The beat goes on about America's massive trade deficit with China, China's mountain of accumulated greenbacks, and its unwillingness to let its currency rise against the staggering US dollar. But the headlines about the world's biggest and most unbalanced bilateral economic relationship obscure what is really going on in US-China economic relations. [?]
Apple gives greenies the finger
Apple has refused to allow its iPhones to be included in the UK's first-ever green ranking scheme for mobile phones. The scheme gives phones a rating of zero to five based on their environmental footprint and major manufacturers including Nokia, Sony Ericsson and Samsung have signed up. The network O2, which is launching the rating system this week, said 93 per cent of the devices its customers use will be covered. The ranking scheme has been launched in partnership with sustainability advisers Forum for the Future and scores handsets on the ecological impact of their raw materials, the manufacturing process, packaging, how long they are likely to last, energy efficiency and how easy they are to reuse or recycle.

Special Report: Data Centers & Renewable Energy « Data Center Knowledge
In coming years, the data center industry will face growing pressure to find workable ways to integrate renewable energy sources into projects. The demand is being driven by two trends: the growth of corporate social responsibility programs that focus on carbon neutrality, and the potential for federal legislation in the U.S. that will place caps on carbon emissions. While data centers aren’t specifically targeted by these initiatives, companies with carbon reduction pledges will find their data centers are among the largest energy users – meaning that sourcing data center power from renewable sources could be a major factor in meeting corporate carbon goals.

Renewable Energy or Improved Efficiency? « Data Center Knowledge
The Internet-scale solar data center will have to be a big sucker. That’s because it takes about 7 acres of solar panels to generate 1 megawatt of power, according to Peter Panfil of Emerson Network Power, which built a smaller solar array on the roof of a new data center on its headquarters campus in St. Louis.

Scandal: Most "Recycled" Computers are Not Recycled
Last month, I described how the computer industry encourages planned obsolescence in order to sell more product. This business model exacerbates the problem of computer disposal because it artificially shortens computer lifespans. This increases production and, ultimately, the numbers requiring disposal. One result is that e-waste -- electronics waste -- is one now one of our most pressing environmental challenges. [?]
