http://www.pbs.org/mediashift/2010/01/5across-environmental-impact-of-newspapers-books-e-waste022.html The latest 5Across video show from PBS MediaShif is about "Environmental Impact of Media," looking at the carbon footprint of newspapers, books and even computer waste and energy use of web servers. Guests include Sarah Westervelt of the Basel Action Network, Shona Burns of Chronicle Books, Joe Kelleher of the San Jose Mercury News, Jean Walsh of San Francisco's Dept. of the Environment, and Charles Uchu Strader of Gaia Host Collective. Surprisingly, the group considers print publications as being more environmentally friendly than computer use, when you take into account the e-waste factor.
