However our generation has also contributed to Global Warming by failing to address our collective ignorance on the infrastructure of Cloud-based Internet. Do you know that every time you check your spelling via Google Search, you are polluting? The Cloud is one of the greatest marketing metaphors ever created, leaving us to believe that the amount of data storage is unlimited. How did this happen? Where our transition to online education has resulted in less emissions via transportation, is it the better option for the future? As we are dealing with the impact the Industrial Age has had on our planet, how do we deal with the impact we create?
