IBM, Easy Being Green

leave a comment »

Sometimes you just want to dance to what’s trendy. Like Gangnam Style in July, or the Harlem Shake.

Many organizations are like that as well. Let’s offer work at home (now let’s not). Free food in the cafeteria. Let’s be green now.

In the latest news, IBM was just presented with a 2013 Climate Leadership Award in Washington, D.C. by the EPA, the Association of Climate Change Officers, the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions, and The Climate Registry.

This is not a one-off. A let’s work on it this year. A Beanie Baby, Cabbage Patch anomaly.

IBM has been doing this for over 40 years.


Through initiatives such as green data centers, smarter buildings, virtualization and consolidation of systems, cooling technologies.

And a good thing too — as yesterday scientists reported that global temperatures are the highest in 4000 years. Yes, that’s 4000 years. And over the coming decades they are likely to surpass levels not seen on this planet since before the last ice age.
