Wi-fi networks blanket urban areas around the world, keeping us constantly connected to the internet wherever we may be — however a new European study finds that these networks may have harmful side-effects on the environment. According to a report by Wageningen University, the constant humming of internet data centers and wi-fi networks could have an adverse effect on nearby trees. The article states that the background radiation produced by these beacons of tech could be making trees sick.
Is Wi-Fi Making Trees Sick? | Inhabitat - Green Design Will Save the World
The conversion to electric powered vehicles is well under way, so there is no need for "artificial trees", since eventually there will be no gas guzzling polluters on the highways anywhere on Earth. But a technological solution must be found for jet planes that pump tons of pollution directly into the skies around the World. Computer science makes remote personal contacts workable to some degree already, so there really isn't a vital need for massive jet travel anymore. The basic problem is too many billions of people demanding multiple expanded services from this small planet.
But there are people who are so addicted to growth they imagine ways to terraform the Moon and Mars; but that is irrational because it will be impossible for corporations to launch space programs when their growing tons of waste and garbage have killed most of the life forms on Earth and driven human civilization into collapse.
