That last meet up was great ! People were dancing in the hall, not me, I had a sprained big toe. The Grateful Dead caused their share of climate change, all those traffic jams and parking lots, and all that hippy methane and potsmoke, and every time Bobby went "hah" he punched a hole in the ozone. Anyway, who needs the Al Gore Movie when you can go see The Emoji Movie instead? Ticket sales from the Emoji Movie prove beyond any doubt that climate change is real. The whole mall/cineplex/automobile culture is contributing to climate change. This website is too, and all the info we keep heated up on tap out there btw:

Energy Usage of Server Farms
Justin Lee
December 6, 2012
Submitted as coursework for PH240, Stanford University, Fall 2012

According to the SMART 2020 report, server farms create carbon footprints that grow more than 7% per year, making them one of the greatest challenges faced by the proponents of green IT. Data centers need numerous auxiliary systems, including storage devices, power supplies, and cooling systems. In 2010, over 10% of electricity in the U.S. was due to computer and IT equipment usage. At the current rate we're going, analysts and experts figure that 10% of the world's power bill will be spent on running computers. To give a more concrete example of how much energy this is, Dixon shows that one 50,000 square feet data center uses about 5 megawatts, but continuously. This energy output would satisfy the needs of 5000 homes. In another staggering example, assorted US data centers use a collective 7000 megawatt data centers from seven different plants; this is more power than is used by the State of Mississippi. Even more surprising is that this astronomical power consumption is just by the plants themselves - cooling systems use as much energy as the plants.


Hey, didn't Al Gore invent the internet? That means he is responsible for one of the biggest carbon footprints on the planet!

Anyway, f*ck Al Gore. Gonna go see Dunkirk on the big screen this week on my day off - my ticket will register as a data point in favor of climate change. All the epic bigscreeners, Lord of the Rings, Avatar, Heart of the Sea, Hacksaw Ridge, are a waste of time on TV.

Hahaha, but seriously, really, why go see an Al Gore Movie on the big screen? Movies are expensive, what's the point of seeing a lecture/documentary when you can just get it from Netflix later?

If you missed Avatar on the big screen you cheated yourself bigtime. All the big sci-fi ones, gotta go bigscreen. What was that one with whatsername, the skylab thing, oh yeah Gravity, what a ride!
