We developers don't feel addressed when it comes to climate change. We don't run factories, we can work from home offices, and our laptops consume very little electricity. The environmental sinners are the others. But if you look at the figures, we are far less innocent. Bitcoin alone generates more CO2 than the 165 million inhabitants of Bangladesh. 5 seconds of Internet video generate one gram of CO2, an e-mail 4. A single Bitcoin transaction generates more CO2 than 100 km in the SUV, 2% of the total CO2 volume worldwide is generated by the Internet alone.
So we are not uninvolved, but directly responsible for CO2 emissions. But what does this mean for our work? What can we do to reduce our Co2 footprint and the solutions we create? Can we really work climate neutrally if we want to?
