Seeking Cleaner and Greener Electronics

This is the VOA Special English Technology Report, from voaspecialenglish.com | http Technology experts, government officials, policy makers and engineers recently met in Italy. They gathered in Rome for the first Green Standards Week conference. Italy’s Ministry of Economic Development and the International Telecommunications Union organized the conference. The event called attention to the need for information and communication technologies to fight climate change and to build greener, more environmentally friendly economies. In recent years, the world has changed because so many people now use computers, mobile phones and other kinds of electronic devices. But the increasing use of information and communication technologies, also known as ICTs, also has led to more pollution, especially greenhouse gas emissions. This is mostly because of the energy used to manufacture, transport and operate such equipment. Still, many experts say ICTs offer the best chance for reducing greenhouse gases. The Global Information Society Watch reported last year that ICTs could help to cut total production of greenhouse gases by as much as fifteen percent by twenty twenty. Alan Finlay is with the Association for Progressive Communications. He also helped to prepare the GISWatch report. He says the effect of using ICTs to build cleaner environments is far more powerful than their harmful effects. “When you’re look at greening with ITs, you’re looking at the impact of ICTs on the environment

    I think that action is very important for actual times because we are using more more and no much we are don’t earth. I think this is initial actions but need more more concience about and search alternatives for? it.

  • Thanks,Alex .?

  • Good now he can use them to announce the new abundance programs that are imminent as the corrupt systems decay further. Maybe he’ll use them to tell us some truth. I leave it open as a possibility because I was once a republican but seeing the media go so far out? of their way to bash obama when they usually only bashed the republicans makes me think that he’s fighting the good fight behind the scenes. I’ve never seen a smear campaign so comprehensive, including “liberal media and alternative

  • Hey Alex, I’m in Europe, Finland.
    Your sites aren’t blocked here ANYWHERE. I should know, I’ve been in IT sector for the last 13 years, working for 4 city area, public sector, schools, offices, libraries, hospitals.
    Maybe they are in? some uber NATO countries like UK, but European countries are still very different.

  • I think your attacks and titles are mis guided. Keep blaming things on “Obama” and you get NO WHERE. You just sound like a crazy. If you title your stuff: “The corporate wheel Takes over…” Then you got some leverage. People are dumb. that is a fact. They subsribe to cable TV and foot ball team mentality. If you say “Chargers cheat”. That is not fair. You need to say “The board of investers of the AFC cheated…” THEN you are RIGHT? ON. Get it? Got it? Good!

  • not a good place to get you information from if you don’t like it? exaggerated.

  • Rothschild family owns 80% of the worlds wealth that’s almost every dollar in circulation globally, there are a few family’s in this world that have complete and total control of everything like economy, food, education, war and just about everything else so dont think you have a say in anything its all? an illusion, all you really need to do is gather a few hundred friends and plan out a way to defend your country good luck too all

    yeah you are right there but if we don’t get rid of them they will just find another puppet. anybody can be the puppet, it’s the puppet masters you need? to get rid of. then there won’t be any puppets.

  • If only it was that easy to eliminate them… As for Obama, the puppet is? just as guilty as the puppet master.

  • TheSkinnerboys1971

    you want to blame obama, he’s just the puppet, you need to eliminate the puppet masters. and if we? don’t they will run the world.

  • They use the same annoying tests for weather alerts…personally I hate them while you are watching a good movie & buzz buzz pisses me off! I wondered what happened to the days when just a little T-Storm watch alert came on in the corner? of the screen? (sad)

  • Well hopefully our politicians wake the fuck up… A lot of our military is waking up, including those who I know who? serve or have served.

  • Or i misread you..

    Our military are still mostly good people. That is why our government is trying to hire mercenaries. The real issue? here is, the information age only really began 12 years ago, and until then nearly everyone was ignorant of what was happening, including the politicians.

  • WTF are you talking about… I’m not talking about the past. And you have no clue who I support. I support? our troops(I have friends & family in the military) but I don’t support those who will blindly fight illegal wars for my imperialistic government and I don’t support any troop who would help implement martial law.

  • The majority of what he says is true. We are being taken over by communist dictators who have been slowing making their way into our government for the past 100 years, at least. Our country originally fought for independence from the British, and suddenly we’re fighting wars for them? Clearly something isn’t right.

    The much? older generations, especially philosophers and theologians, understood this much better than we do. Alex looks stupid just like the rest of us because we’re all fucked.

  • Hah, your comment demonstrates your own conditioning.

    First of all, the American leaders in the past were retired military generals who? represented us as public servants. Since then it has been taken over by bankers, lawyers and educators. You are the one who supports the ‘lab coat’ dictators who want to control society domestically.

    You’re a huge asshole, in other words.

  • Do you actually personally know anyone in the military? Their trained to be creative and think on their feet. That’s what the whole “Army of One” campaign was about—soldiers are trained to be self-reliant and think for themselves. That’s why there’s movements? today like Oath Takers, etc.

    Thanks and keep up the good work!?

  • They are obviously scared of the internet and searching for ways to kill or controle it. Simpelest way is to set up new laws, stage a terror attack so that the new laws will come into effect and there you have it – 1984.? Probably even worse than that if you consider how many sick people are part of these elite cults.

  • Here’s a novel? idea…why not just UNPLUG the damn box?

  • O_O What he said in 11:35 sounds like goddamn “1984”! Damn scary!?

  • “all communications” Alex..? ya may wanna retract and or change that as Obozo does NOT control the communication? between my wife and myself, so Obozo doesn’t control ALL communications as your title may leadsome to believe.. apology accepted..

  • The LORD is about to shut the door ( Rev. 3:7b ) on The Ark of HIS Grace. When this happens The? Flood of Great Destruction will sweep across the whole world. A persons Obedience to Romans 10:9 &10 will ensure then entrance into The Ark. Do NOT delay to come on board. Today is The Day of Salvation.The Gift of GOD is? Eternal Life ( Romans 6:23b ) It is The Will of GOD in Christ is that all be Saved (1 Timothy 2: 4 & 5 ) GET SAVED TODAY you may not have another opportunity to do so MARANATHA-Amen

  • He sounded so much younger and lighter in? this

  • We are born into this world Spiritually seedless. Now then there are two spiritual Seeds made available to us. One is The Seed
    of Christ the other is the seed of satan. If a person dies without having accepted one Seed or the other then by default that person is assigned to the seed of satan because of their Sin nature because all men/women have sin falling short of The Glory of GOD [ Romans 3:23 ] & we are by nature the children of Wrath/Disobedience [Ephesians 2: 2 & 3] Christ Seed is a? GIFT.

  • the fucking idiots are the one leting our freedoms go,? and the ones who have nothing better to do but talk shit about patriots! for a clue read above statement.
