I´ve just stopped watching a very long video about Artic global warming, at following site linked by BBC:
http://www.eea.europa.eu/multimedia
My laptop was getting rather hot ... Too much electricity consumption. Don´t you realize that thousands and thousands of people watching such a long videos, and their service providers, DO also contribute to global warming?
Info is necessary to fight G. W., but it should be conveyed SETTING A GREEN EXAMPLE: text better than video, or at least fewer and much shorter videos.

Thanks for pointing this out. Of course any energy consumption contributes to global warming in some proportion, however, as you mention yourself: information is necessary to raise awareness.

Please see the following link to EEA's green tips on how to save energy and make green habits a part of your everyday life:
http://www.eea.europa.eu/green-tips/#c3=&b_start=0

For instance, you can switch your old computer monitor to a more energy-efficient LCD screen. If you're using your screen up to eight hours a day, you can save up to 100 000 W in one year.

Thanks for your advice, but I use a modern MacBookPro ... and am independently fighting skeptics. You can google my full "name" and see.
I insist: very few skeptics and not informed people watch such a long "against global warming" videos. Most people who watch them are already aware of this grave problem..
I´m afraid their global "cost-benefit" makes them unwise.
