Bell Labs recently announced the launch of a global consortium that's aimed at improving the efficiency of the world's communications networks by a factor of one thousand. The group. called Green Touch, includes companies such as AT&T, China Mobile, Portugal Telecom, Swisscom, and Telefonica, and research facilities run by Bell Labs, Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology (SAIT), and Freescale Semiconductor. To put that number into perspective, Green Touch notes, "A thousand-fold reduction is roughly equivalent to being able to power the world’s communications networks, including the Internet, for three years using the same amount of energy that it currently takes to run them for a single day." The group will meet for the first time in February.

More hot air to add to the atmosphere

This whole 'Green' delusion is getting so ridiculously out of hand. This is an utter waste of money for everyone involved and one can guarantee that nothing will ever come of it. Like that stupid meeting in Copenhagen that accomplished nothing more than punching an even bigger hole in our atmospheric sphincter with all of our brilliant leaders flying there with their private jets and rolling with their entourages in stretched limousines. The unrealistic and simply far fetched proposition to reduce by 1000 percent? How can anyone with any common sense even take this seriously by .001%?
I say this, I think its better because if its more efficient then that mean we can power like they said 100 times more the same thing we are powering now, but thats only beneficial if they are going to reduce price. But thats where the bullsh!t comes ...
