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.

It really doesn't amount to much of anything. Carbon emissions are still eroding the ozone layer at a faster rate than will matter if Steve Jobs "goes green". I'd believe that people were serious about the environment if they ditched their gas-hogging SUVs and Jobs stopped flying on his private jet.

This is a common misconception.

Carbon emissions have little if anything to do with the state of the ozone layer. The problem with carbon emissions is their alleged - but only partly understood effect - on global climate.

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.
