      Governments Need To Talk Green Up by Peter Judge

      Last week President Obama backed nuclear power and “cleaner” fossil fuels in a speech from Georgetown University, and pledged to go past Congress to get the measures passed. The new policy has been praised by environmentalists, although some warn that it’s too optimistic about “clean coal” and some argue that nuclear power is also not as green as it is painted. But it’s a positive step, and potentially good for the economy, as much for Obama’s bold statement, as for what he said.

      Counting Your Savings In The Supply Chain by Peter Judge

      Calculating your carbon footprint is not a very exact science. There are sites that help you do it - either as an individual or as a company - and you always get to a point where you start making approximations, just so you can arrive at a figure. But even when you have a good guess at how much carbon you are directly responsible for, in the goods you buy and the transport you use, what about the networks of companies that provide the stuff you are using?

      UN Discusses Killer Robots, But IBM Has One That Saves Energy by Peter Judge

      This week, the United Nations has been asked to ban killer robots, according to reports from places including the BBC. Meanwhile, more benign robots are getting on with placating data centers’ demands for energy. Killer robots are a real concern. The success of drones in combat and surveillance is leading to a next stage, where autonomous devices act according to programs, instead of under the control of a remote operator. Proponents say that “lethal autonomous robots” would save lives - by populating battlefields with artificial creatures. Opponents point out that they could easily kill civilians and carry out atrocities - for which a war crime prosecution might be impossible.

    5. Does Green Fatigue Mean It's Time To Pull The Plug? by Peter Judge

      Does Green Fatigue Mean It's Time To Pull The Plug? by Peter Judge

      Several places reported in the last week or so about “green fatigue”. The stories suggest that data center operators no longer care about energy efficiency. So, should we close down Green Data Center News? I don’t think we should - but there is a message in the stories of so-called green fatigue. Data center operators are becoming less concerned about saving energy, says the Uptime Institute. It surveys operators regularly, and this year only 50 percent of them said energy efficiency was “very important” to their company. In 2012 it was 52 percent, and in 2011 it was 58 percent.
