Apple Steve Jobs writes about Apple's efforts to become a more enironmental friendly company. "Apple has been criticized by some environmental organizations for not being a leader in removing toxic chemicals from its new products, and for not aggressively or properly recycling its old products. Upon investigating Apple's current practices and progress towards these goals, I was surprised to learn that in many cases Apple is ahead of, or will soon be ahead of, most of its competitors in these areas. Whatever other improvements we need to make, it is certainly clear that we have failed to communicate the things that we are doing well." Among other things, Apple will introduce LEDs in displays to Macs this year.

CO2 is a known greenhouse gas. If you think human activity doesn't at least make global warming worse, then you must not be very well-informed.


The facts are that you don't know. There are no proofs. Current opinions are based on "faith" & likely-hood, not 100% proofs. If humans do contribute to some global warming, which might not be unlikely, the question is really, how much ? And, can a natural global warming then not act as a "self-regulating mechanism" for humans that automatically reduces human created CO2 as we all can turn the heat off a little bit and cut down on fossil fuel.

If we are heading into a warmer period, it will certainly not be the first global warming period in Earths history. Some evidence suggest that humans are indeed a result of a global warming period.
