IN POLLUTION TERMS USING THE INTERNET COULD BE YOUR EQUIVALENT OF AN – Arkwright Mill ‘AT FULL THROTTLE’ - DURING THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION -
Somewhere In California SOON To Be India AND Possibly Iceland – There Are Vast Tracts Of Skulking Warehouses – Containing Thousands OF Energy Guzzling Servers – ‘IT IS FARMING – BUT NOT AS WE KNOW IT’ – 2011 March 3rd.
Server farms provide the network to transmit websites. They are powered by electricity predominately from coal-fired power stations. Add in the energy required to make your PC in the first place and computing is responsible for over 1billion tonnes of CO2 each year – more emissions than aviation.
2009: But it all adds up! Headlines vaguely quoted by Google as being the footprint of each second of a search made suggested that a Google search generated 7g of CO2- the same as making a cup of tea. This left the Eco-minded home worker in a quandary.
Later Google corrected this to 0.2g per search. The latest research suggests that you create 20mg of CO2 per second per visit to a website. The more whistles and bells on the site the higher this gets-up to 300mg of CO2 per second for one with video content.
Running an avatar in Second Life uses more electricity than a live person in Brazil. So ask yourself is this watt necessary? Cont -
“Must have escaped from an aviary.” With – Brilliant yellow plumage.
Endearing splendour high pitched tone mellifluous singing.
Birds of high conservation – ‘concern!’ “Alarming 30 years RED!”…
Appears on this damn – DEAD list – Of cause!
Red List species of – ‘high conservation concern…’ Who’s? ‘WERE in the Dark!’
Yellowhammer – Extinct NOW? = When – DO ‘WE’ KNOW?
“We need garden Songbirds like we need ‘bees’ one pair of blue tits alone take – Need 15 thousand insects grubs bugs spiders a season.”
Slug pellets Poison sprays: Kill ’our’ unwanted insect slug bug beetles and a myriad of creepy crawlies then songbirds eat these and to feed their chicks. ‘Yet more garden songbirds – Dead – Wiped out this time by us.’
George Bernard Shaw –
“Human beings are the only animal of which I am thoroughly and cravenly afraid.”
Field Birds AT RECORD LOW – ‘The UK’s Farmland BIRD Populations Have Fallen To A Record Low Official Figures Showed.’
“In England alone the numbers of 19 species which rely on farmland for food and breeding have sadly dropped. By nearly three quarters since 1970!”
Tree sparrows, yellow wagtails, corn buntings, grey partridges, turtle doves, starlings are among the hardest hit.
The number of woodland birds has fallen by over a third since 1970. With “Blackbirds, bullfinches and song thrushes declined with willow tits, spotted flycatchers, tree pipits, and lesser spotted woodpeckers down by more than 75 per cent.
Songbirds-Slaughter – 2011 – ‘Magpies and Sparrowhawks’ – ALONE “Killed the last Garden Songbirds hanging on in our area over ‘NINE’ – YES ’9′ Years Ago…!”
RSPB – TAKE OFF PROTECTION? YOU HAVE NOW AND SINCE ‘1954’ GIVEN ‘YOUR’ SPARROWHAWKS ‘YOUR’ LEGAL PROTECTION… RSPB ‘YOUR’ ONLY ADDING TO EXTERMINATION – OF ‘OUR’ GARDEN SONGBIRDS AND “EVER SINCE… ‘1954…’ !”
IT ‘IS’ NOW 2011! SAVE OUR GARDEN BIRDS AND – FOR THE RSPB TO EVEN ‘HELP’ SAVE THEM…? ?
“YES PLEASE? BRING BACK OUR SPARROWS ?” BUT, TRAGICALLY IT ‘IS’ ONLY “IF ‘they’ ARE EVER ‘GIVEN ANY’ RSPB”… Help.
YOU RSPB – “Now, Could turn things around? Extermination Only, IS Your Present Conceit and Policy…”
Cont: Employ spam filters. 2008 an estimated 62trillion spam emails were sent globally creating same greenhouse gas emissions as-3.1m passenger cars!
So what is wrong with a reference book? US academics remind us that driving a mile and back to the library produces 100 times more greenhouse gas emissions than a web search. Walking there and back? Remaining ignorant is carbon free…
Albert Einstein: “Only two things are infinite the universe and human stupidly and I am not too sure about the former.”
2008: Spammers made £2m each a year they need just one mug in 12.5m to make a profit.
A response rate of 8 zeros 8 per cent – but enough to make £2.2m a year sending a million emails through notorious Storm Botnet – A chain of infected computers sending spam automatically- cost £50! Researchers used just 1.5% of Storm and sent 350m emails in 26 days.
Only 28 people did contact but enough to make £2000 profit. Boiler–room scams cost British victims around £200 million a year.
Average loss £20,000. Phishing. Etc, extra.
2010: Bit of a wake up call. 19 million hit by cyber crime targeting computer systems; 1-10 had trouble credit cards, bank accounts on-line.
14 million homes on wireless network. Caution: Freely available on-line information cyber attacks; 7 million hacked in 5 seconds! Cyber defence?
Mania for media? The connect to people drug. You know seven or on Facebook you have 120 people as ‘friends’ but these are not face to face or not even your neighbours. How do you know how much control you really have over it with the data stored. You do own the content but it is there for ever and who knows if it is even true or not. Is it time to delete?
‘The dark side of the information age.’ I happen to know personally to my cost after eleven years that once something untrue about ‘anyone’ is online who can get it corrected or deleted? Being libelled by anyone who has their own agenda for their own benefit and cause is bad enough.
But this ‘woman’ did not, had not – ‘heard any words’ as wasn’t even near! They were never spoken. All a ‘set up and conspiracy.’ As my friend had said!
Her actions implicated many people ending up with only the – ‘scapegoats.’ Causing the death of a friend as the worry brought on a heart attack.
Online still showing only half one side of the outcome. Once again being used by yet another. One David Irving for their own agenda to prove ‘their’ point.
Never the truth and never the ‘final verdict!’ Though – ‘Justice’ was proved… Thrown out of Court – “No case to answer” for remaining people.
Thats ‘Not’ online. Not wanted by anyone. Then the penny drops about truth and the ‘true’ situation of most things or anything if someone has to ‘win’…
“TO SEARCH FOR THE TRUTH ONE HAS TO BE DRUNK WITH IMAGINATION” - Leonard Bernstein.
Beware this freedom to be used to ‘suit anyone’s agenda.’ Who can object. Not the ‘real’ person as so many are belatedly finding out. Have you tried to get on-line data deleted or even ‘corrected…?’
‘They don’t do that.’ Once you give up your data it sits around forever. Knowledge is power for governments and this means control for company’s profit.
So if you have nothing to hide should you have anything to fear? On average two per cent of all databases are wrong.
Then so long as you’re in the lucky 98 per cent whose data is not corrupted not mishandled you have nothing to fear. But the other two per cent have nothing but trouble in store. This is the tip of the iceberg. The next time you hear someone in a company or in government say how much more convenient a new system will be somewhere along the line it will be harvesting your data.
‘Were beginning to see early victims of our brave new database world’ – There will be more. Cont -

Cont: Of all the claims made about the impact of social media on our lives is the one that was made by – Googles CEO – Eric Schmidt –
2010 August: “I don’t believe society understands what happens when everything is available knowable and recorded by everyone all the time.”
He suggests apparently in all seriousness that it will become customary for people to change their names automatically on reaching adulthood in order to distance themselves from evidence of their youthful misdemeanours massively distributed across their friend social networking sites.
It’s true enough can it ever be entirely erased.
To remove that information from the internet is effectively impossible. Instead of erasing our personal data Schmidt tells us our only hope is to flee it.
We should take him seriously: this is after all the man running the single biggest agregator of information in the history of the world.
In the future he seems to be saying everyone will be anonymous for 15 minutes – if their lucky.
Think about the implications of what he describes a world where identities are discarded when the data associated with them becomes polluted. As far as social transformation goes this points to something else…
“We are approaching what looks like the end of privacy for good and all – a change not in degree but in kind – and we aren’t really planning for it.”
So many are just gobbling up technology – With every new device and interface MP3 player pod casts forever more ‘to add to life’? Many are addicted to computers and their mobile phones unable to live or be without. While others may see this as being disconnected from the world and cut off from reality. Withdrawal symptoms do happen as many feel threatened when their ‘toys’ are lost or unavailable – “just how are they going to survive!”
George Orwell – “Man is the only creature that consumes without producing. He does not give milk, he does not lay eggs, he is too weak to pull the plough, he cannot run fast enough to catch rabbits. Yet he is lord of all the animals…”
2011: Many people have forgotten to listen and bored reading a book. Maybe learning to reconnect with kids or family playing board games puzzles without looking for a quick kick buzz or connection can be the new fun. Lost childhood for kids is social autism in not really knowing unknown ‘friends.’
2012 February 23: According to a study of 2,000 posts, tweets are 40% useless babble 38% conversation 9% pass along value, 6% self-promotion 4% spam and 4% news. 50% of all content consumed on twitter is generated by only 20,000 users. Today, 12.1 new Twitterers every second, 140million tweets posted daily. And that – there are more women on Twitter to men.
‘Distracted from reality isolates as we are refreshed without pressure.’ Maybe digital dummies can find each other again.
Passive overload as normal with again using books and newspapers without frustration. Think – No virus…
PC Use “Equivalent Industrial Revolution ‘full throttle’ Arkwright Mill!” – ‘On-line Data’- Yours! ‘Truth’ & Justice? – Heed False ‘Witness’ - AND Britain’s Farmland Bird Populations – “Fallen to Record Low…!”
