interesting point; how much change would it make if CO2 emissions were tagged to the parent country of the company producing them, rather than where they're produced (though they'd be able to obfuscate that with creative accounting too).
It's currently a big Brexit Dad thing in the UK to say they should do nothing about climate change because they're less than 5% and China exists.
I'm sure, just like in literature, we're punching above our weight with all those new data centers. Unless we find a U2 style creative accounting way of spreading that carbon accountability worldwide?
I think I saw real plans for putting data centers is naturally cold places, including places which can just sink heat directly into the sea.When you think about it, we're doing the world a favour by having them here in our nice temperate climate. Imagine the AC costs of setting them up in Morocco. Well done to us.
I'm actually not sure how much of a sarky prick I'm being when I say that.
this is kinda funny in a 'jesus, do they think we're that fucking dumb' way:
The nation’s favourite garden designer is making changes to live a more eco-conscious life, including embracing mild hybrid technology in his Land Rover Defender Hard Topwww.irishtimes.com
I clicked on it.I'm probably not going to click on it but I did lol at the intro line there.
In some of my work though I do bounce off some of these people from time to time (nobody really mentioned there, just the same kinda field) and It reminds me just how far people are from comprehending all this stuff. Like there is a full blown possiblity that even with the advertorial cheque cashed etc etc that they'd actually believe that they are saving the planet by buying a 2 ton car. Probably will look at this like one of those 'smoking while playing tennis' style 70's ciggarette ads in a few years.
was reading of testing submerging comms cabs full of them into the sea.I think I saw real plans for putting data centers is naturally cold places, including places which can just sink heat directly into the sea.
I'm not sure where exactly I saw these plans, I thought they were close to real if not real though.

Super efficient if sealed correctly
