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.

I don't:
- drive nor own a car;
- fly unless I really really have to;
- own a powerful desktop computer nor an (ever running) old PC as my home server;
- burn things for fun ;)
- eat a lot of meat and non-local products;
- own a home theatre system and/or gaming console.

I have/do;
- Invested in home insulation and recently in a new energy efficient central heating system;
- go to work using a bike (80%) or train (19,5%)
- use low-power fluorescent light bulbs in my house;

I know it's not much, but I sort of think it helps.

By definition, human life means to spend energy.

Should we stop all progress just because we damage the environment? yes, we damage it. But, on the other hand, this damage allows us to use computers.

There is no point for humanity to live on if we are not allowed to expand our horizons.
