The Internet is the largest thing that humanity has built. A Huawei consultant predicts that by 2030, communications technologies could consume 51% of global electricity and emit 23% of greenhouse gas emissions. And yet, the Internet’s footprint remains largely invisible and unregulated. Katie Singer will report on the Internet’s main energy guzzlers and some of the toxic waste-emitting supply chains of each smartphone’s 1000+ substances. She’ll also spell out how manufacturers, service providers, policy makers and individuals can each do their part to reduce the Internet’s footprint.

WHEN: Tuesday, February 11. 10-11:30am

WHERE: CIR Conference Room. 413 Grant Ave, Suite D

TICKETS: $5 and available here or at the door.

A long-time resident of Santa Fe, writer Katie Singer spoke about the Internet’s footprint on a panel with the climatologist Dr. James Hansen and at the United Nation’s 2018 Forum on Science, Technology & Innovation. Visit www.ourweb.tech for more info.
