Culture Bore Is Worse For The Environment Than a Real Newspaper

Widespread use of digital media (such as this blog) may be a bigger cause of environmental damage and deforestation than print media.

Coal-powered digital media is destructive to the environment in many ways beyond deforestation. Coal fired power plants are responsible for 93% of the sulfur dioxide and 80% of the nitrogen oxide emissions generated by the electric utility industry. These emissions cause acid rain that is destroying red spruce forests in the Northeast and Appalachia, and killing brook trout and other fish species in the Adirondacks, upper Midwest and Rocky Mountains.
