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.

Yesterday I heard a fact that by the age of 2, we (in the UK) will have been responsible for more carbon emissions than an asian in their whole lifetime.

Yep. And most of those Asians would gladly give away the pride of their small environmental footprint in exchange for the living standard of an Englishman.

Please stop your luddite ranting. You are also probably the kind of person who will blame the West for the poverty of those Asians and expect the West to make that poverty go away. The poverty that is the main cause of their small environmental footprint. Which is it??? Seems that you would like developed countries to NOT eat their cake AND NOT have it, either.
