World Changing recently published an opinion piece that tackles Green Peace’s new energy report that alleges cloud computing further exacerbates our energy problems. Their claim is substantiated on the idea that data and on-demand culture provides a greater energy debt than previously imagined even going so far as to call the iPad a planet killer.

Computing accounts for a bit less than 3% of U.S. energy usage, according to Lawrence Livermore Labs. The global IT industry as a whole generates about 2% of global CO2 emissions.
