At a time when the (U.S.) Republican Party is busy saying "No" to everything except half-intelligent presidential nominees, The Governator has put a stake in the ground on why we should support renewable energy, regardless of one's views about climate change.

      "I don’t give a **** if we agree about climate change," is the title of Schwarzenegger’s Facebook post

      Google Makes its Biggest Renewable Energy Purchase Yet

      As far as the general public is concerned, Google and its data centers have become synonymous with the internet, and when activists call for a greener internet, Google data centers are in the spotlight more than anyone else’s.

      On the rare occasion that the public eye turns to the issue of carbon emissions associated with watching puppy videos, Google has a good story to tell. Today, that story got even stronger.

      Stop Making a Big Stink About Data Center PUE

      Data center managers are finding that their Chief Finance Officers are increasingly interested in the organization’s infrastructure. This is only natural; data centers represent a major investment for the business, and CFOs will want to be certain they’re getting value for money. The challenge then is how to present this value to CFOs and sell them on a particular investment choice. Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) has often been cited as the de facto indicator of data center performance, but

      Cooling ICT environments: where to next?

      Data centres are essential to the digital economy; but they are also significant consumers of energy. Estimated to consume 2% of the world’s total energy, they consume roughly ten times more energy per square metre than the average office, with their cooling systems the prime culprits for this excessive energy consumption.

      Where Are Energy Prices Headed?

      Energy is the biggest expense for data centers, and although efficiency improvements can help by reducing consumption, cost remains a critical factor in determining operating budgets. The recent crash in oil prices raises a number of questions about demand, but there’s more to the picture—especially for such a politically charged topic.

      Obama Followed Long, Winding Path to Clean Power Plan

      The U.S. Army/Flickr Climate change was riding an updraft in 2008. More Americans than ever before—or since—saw it as a troubling issue. And President-elect Obama had just pledged in his campaign to do something about it. So did his Republican opponent. It went from a salesman’s pitch to a presidential commitment two weeks after the election. Obama vowed to rewrite the nation’s energy profile, eliminating all but 20 percent of existing emissions within 40 years.

      White House insists tough new carbon restrictions are legal under Clean Air Act

      The White House insisted on Sunday it was on strong legal footing as it unveiled details of ambitious carbon-reduction plans that are likely to be fiercely opposed by coal-burning Republican states. Gina McCarthy, administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), told reporters the Obama administration’s goal of reducing carbon dioxide emissions from US power plants by 32% between 2005 and 2030 kept squarely “within the four corners” of the Clean Air Act.

      Arnold Schwarzenegger says global warming isn't sci-fi

      Technically Incorrect: The Terminator has seen sci-fi, he knows sci-fi. And global warming isn't it. Technically Incorrect offers a slightly twisted take on the tech that's taken over our lives. Some people won't listen to politicians when they warn about global warming. Some won't listen to scientists either. They wouldn't listen if those scientists were cyborgs from 2029, warning them what's going to happen. But perhaps they'll listen to a politician who's also a cyborg from 2029.

      Google to Turn Alabama Power Plant Into Data Center

      Google is planning to repurpose infrastructure of an Alabama power plant that is scheduled for shutdown to build a data center, the company announced today. The approach is highly unusual, but a lot of power-plant equipment can be reused for a data center project, according to Google. Like in other areas of its operations, the company has never shied away from unusual approaches to data center design and construction.

      Oil Giant Predicts Carbon Will Harm Economic Growth, Calls For Renewables

      Climate change will hinder global economic growth within the next 25 years, according to the Norwegian oil giant Statoil, unless societies achieve the 2-degree limit on warming that many climate scientists already consider unrealistic. The world can achieve the strongest economic growth, Statoil Chief Economist Erik Wærness reiterated this morning in Washington D.C., by embracing renewable energy and limiting carbon emissions.

      Internal Carbon Fees Fund Data Center Energy Innovation at Microsoft

      When it committed to 100 percent carbon-neutral operations in 2012, Microsoft started the unusual practice of charging each of its internal departments fees for the amount of greenhouse-gas emissions they are responsible for. Today, three years later, the company claims that the strategy works.
