Apple has come bottom of the most comprehensive green league table of technology companies because of its heavy reliance on "dirty data" centres.
Gary Cook, Greenpeace's IT policy analyst and lead author of the report, said: "Consumers want to know that when they upload a video or change their Facebook status that they are not contributing to global warming or future Fukushimas."
Surprising? No. Hypocritical? Yes.
I disagree with Greenpeace demonizing Apple for using coal as an energy source to produce amazing products like the Ipod, Ipad, Iphone and other top of the line products. Without coal energy, those products would not exist, however, it is important to point out the hypocrisy of Apple as a liberal leaning company, their "green" agenda and considering Al Gore is at the head of the environmental movement, it should be noted that he is once again practicing,"Do as I say, not as I do."
