How green is the iPhone?

Written by Nedim Hadzic

The white one or...?
Firstly I must stress that I've never bought into the whole "green" movement. Data is clear that the mother Earth’s climate changed the way it saw fit, even without us around. So, if the past climate changes had nothing to do with dinosaurus' ACs, deodorants or mobile phones, why would we expect it to suddenly be all about it?

Having said that, here’s some interesting information on the "greenness" of the world’s favorite overpriced telecommunications device – the iPhone. Props to the guys from Geekaphone who have assembled this excellent factsheet.

even though I hate apple. I pretty much think the same applies to other high-end phones out there.

The fundamental purpose of environmental activists is to make us feel guilty for the nice standard of living we enjoy.

It's a modern transposition of the good old judeo-christian guilt.

All human activities have an impact.

Quoting BernardP:
The fundamental purpose of environmental activists is to make us feel guilty

Wrong!
They're just informing us of facts that interested parties such as profiteers feels are best left unsaid (to protect and maximise their profits).

Environmentalis ts advocate for positive change - technology and knowledge have transformed human existence on this planet, and we can continue to develop further as we progress.

It's just that the profit incentive that drives innovation sometimes takes a short-term view - when the consequences span lifetimes and generations, it's an easy short-sightedness to understand.
Environmentalis ts merely advocate their longer-term view.
