Abstract The usual depictions of modern life impacting the environment include images of traffic-jammed highways, smoke-belching factories, and perhaps a few schools of fish floating belly-up in polluted water. Rarely do we see people working at their PCs or stacks of servers in data centers. Computers don't have exhaust pipes, but their environmental impact is no longer invisible. The cumulative life cycles of billions of machines, from manufacture to usage to disposal, are combining into an environmental footprint large enough to attract widespread attention.
