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.

We all need to clean up but if you really want to keep the pressure on you'd best tactically switch your attention to China, India and Brazil: the US, as is Europe, is inhabited to a great extent by a culturally post-industrial population - the *current* US Administration will soon seem like a lot of neutered pussycats once the Chinese dragon starts to dig its heels in over carbon emissions (and then ask yourself where a lot of PC equipment is now produced these days)
