|Ah, I'm choking on Stephen King!|
Back in the day (2009), the publishing industry sat around and said, "Hey, by 2020 let's let the planet breathe better." And people said, "Shit, yeah." Now here comes eBooks to mess that all the hell up.
As reported by triplepundit (Even I don't know where I get this crap), ebook devices leave a larger carbon imprint than paper books of upwards to bunches of percents. As much as this is counter intuitive, it does make some sense, however the article forgot one thing. Yeah, the Ipad is worth about 32.4 books in a landfill. That sounds like a lot. But if you consider that most people actually reading on an Ipad in a landfill will read a hella lot more than 32.4 books in that devices lifetime. These people are so dedicated to reading that they are doing it on an Ipad! That takes a massive amount of book scarfing. Think of all those cheesy romance novels that will not have to be printed when people find out they can just download them and hide the shame of carrying them around.
