Facebook should be booming – but with Renewable Energy

big electricity consumers like Facebook can also play an important role by using its influence to demand policies that dramatically increase the supply of renewable electricity being put on the grid,

Facebook update: Switch to renewable energy now Facebook update: Switch to renewable energy now | Greenpeace International Greening Facebook from within   Facebook recently announced it will build a massive data centre in Oregon, U.S., packed full of the latest energy efficient computers to serve the hundreds of millions of friends connecting on their near-addictive social networking website. But the company plans to run the place on electricity made by burning coal–Yes, the dirtiest source of energy and largest single source of global warming pollution in the world.

Facebook should be run on 100 percent renewable energy. That clear demand started spreading on the social network website , and will grow until the company announces a decision to really go green. The new data centre won’t be ready until 2011, and people power has moved the company before.

When Facebook members have spoken strongly in the past on privacy and other changes that impact their profile pages, the company has been forced to change its policies.

In addition to keeping coal from powering your profile page, big electricity consumers like Facebook can also play an important role by using its influence to demand policies that dramatically increase the supply of renewable electricity being put on the grid, so we can all use renewable energy–and not coal–to power the internet………

Take Action
