  • The Times Online in the UK released a news story Sunday about Google’s CO2 emissions coming from their data centers. Alex Wissner-Gross, a Harvard physicist, estimated that about 7 grams of CO2 results from each Google search. Wissner-Gross said “Google operates huge data centres around the world that consume a great deal of power.” The Times Online states that “Performing two Google searches from a desktop computer can generate about the same amount of carbon dioxide as boiling a kettle for a cup of tea.”

    Google Refutes. Google won’t tell anyone its energy consumption and carbon footprint. It also won’t tell anyone the locations of its data centers. Joseph Romm, who was acting assistant secretary of energy for energy efficiency and renewable energy for the Clinton Administration says the Harvard research is off. And Google quickly posted on its blog that the number is more like 0.2 grams of CO2 per search, which is about 35 times lower than the Harvard estimate.

    The Researcher Weighs In. The Times Online featured the story on January 11. Google responded on its blog the same day. The next day, Wissner-Gross told TechNewsWorld that he never even mentioned Google in his research. He said, “For some reason, in their story on the study, the Times had an ax to grind with Google. Our work has nothing to do with Google. Our focus was exclusively on the Web overall, and we found that it takes on average about 20 milligrams of CO2 per second to visit a Web site.” And...

    Languages are the most powerful instruments of preserving and developing our tangible and intangible heritage. All moves to promote the dissemination of mother tongues will serve not only to encourage linguistic diversity and multilingual education but also to develop fuller awareness of linguistic and cultural traditions throughout the world and to inspire solidarity based on understanding, tolerance and dialogue. International Mother Language Day was proclaimed by UNESCO's General Conference in November 1999 in recognition of the sanctity and preservation of all vernacular languages in the world. The event began being observed from 21 February 2000 throughout the world to commemorate the martyrs who sacrificed their lives on this date in DHAKA in 1952. The background to the proclamation of the International Mother Language Day was a proposal from Bangladesh at the UNESCO General Conference in Paris on 17 November 1999 to declare 21 February as an international day on the ground that on this day many had sacrificed their lives for their mother tongue. It was argued that, since the languages of the world are at the very heart of UNESCO's objectives and since they are the most powerful instruments for preserving and developing the tangible and intangible heritage of nations and nationalities, the recognition of this day would serve not only to encourage linguistic diversity and multilingual education but also to develop a fuller awareness of linguistic and cultural traditions ...
