Taskforce to cut ‘cyber warming’

A new public-private “Green Shift” taskforce that will be led by Manchester City Council has been created in the UK. It’s aim is to “reduce carbon dioxide emissions from the production, operation and disposal of computers ” with a “green PC” policy.

This involves removing desktop computer, and replacing them with desktop boxes that access central server controlled office applications, email and internet browsers. The scheme, that should be ready by 2009, hopes to reduce resource use in the production of PC’s by 75%.
