[Infographic] Environmental Impact of Computing

Have you ever thought of  how much power does consume with your computing equipment? Computers, routers, print servers, gaming consoles, all of it consumes power constantly, and most of it is so far removed from our consciousness that we pay it no attention. 

A new infographic at IAmGreen, from the folks at Infographicworld, attempts to compile some statistics about the environmental impact of our computing addiction.  Some figures:

  • The average desktop computer consumes enough electricity to produce roughly 4.5lbs of CO2.
  • Over 1 Billion Computers in use WorldWide, set to double by 2014
  • In a single working day (9 to 5), computers consume 1.7 Million Megawatts.
  • Manufacturing of new computers on year 2010 did 25 Million Tons of Fossil Fuels.

Note:This is an late infographic view  estimated on 2010
