Green Peace vs Facebook

綠色和平製作了一段影片抗議Facebook興建一座以煤發電的數據中心,以應現在5億用戶的需求。



這段影片是夠好看的,而在綠色和平的網站,所列出的要求也是夠清晰的:

  • Commit to stop using polluting coal power,
  • Use its purchasing power to choose only clean, renewable sources of electricity,
  • Advocate for strong climate and energy policy changes at the local, national and international level to ensure that as the IT industry’s energy demand increases, so does the supply of renewable energy,
  • Share this information publicly on its website so its millions of users know the company is a climate leader.

  • 當然,見到這段「silly Mark Zuckerberg chose dirty old coal」影片,Facebook就立即出來回應,稱他們沒有權操控他們所購買的燃料之來源。而且他們更稱由數據中心的選址,以至他們的節能軟件,都有令這數據中心運作得更具能源效益。

    這一回的交手大概只是Round One,不知道他們還會大戰多少回合呢。
