First and foremost conclusive research shows that CO2 and other emissions are causing global climate and environmental damage. Preserving the planet is a valid goal because it aims to preserve life. A planet like our Earth, that supports life, are very rare. In this technology Era, we cannot live apart PC’s and other electronic devices. A single computer emits about 0.1 ton of CO2 in a year. The emissions by computers account for 2 percent of world’s total CO2 emissions, almost equal to that contributed by aviation. Gartner has estimated that 133,000 personal computers are discarded by U.S homes and business each day. Disposal of these devices constituted 20-50 million tons per year (about 5% of the total damage of our planet).This further enhances the necessity of Green Computing and how to live with them in a way that makes them friendlier to the environment.
