I like the part about telecommuting. I do nearly all of my work from my office, internet & phone. I also like the new Nissan Leaf which runs entirely on electricity, charge at home even with a regular outlet, and the Air Car ... it really works.

This is a very awesome inforgraphic! whether internet is good and bad I guess now that we've been exposed to a lot about it

it will be hard for us to live without it. So the least thing we could do is to be a responsible user. Think before you click.

I think this is a tough thing to prove on either side of the argurment.  Everthing can effect the environment in one way or another, but you have to think how many people can work remotely from home because of the internet and are no longer driving to and from work everyday.
