Greenpeace dont like Amazon's 'dirty cloud'

Greenpeace have singled out Amazon as having the "dirtiest cloud" services.

just what does that mean???

Apple, Facebook and Google were praised for "significant improvements" in energy transparency and attempts to move to 100% renewable energy.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) on the other hand, which powers many net firms, only uses 15% clean energy, according to the report.

The green activist group warned that more needed to be done to make the internet greener, particularly in countries experiencing huge net growth such as China.

The electricity demand of internet and cloud services has grown exponentially, according to the report, Clicking Clean: How Companies are Creating the Green Internet.

And it is expected to increase by 60% or more by 2020 as reliance on the internet increases.

Come on Amazon, it time to invest in some PV or Wind generation...

The US Gov also has a very dirty Data centre in Utah..... it cost millions in energy to run it...
