While I was watching the Live Earth concert, I did wonder about all the power required to broadcast the HD signal, power the SMS promotions and even host the web sites and the impact that the event itself had on the environment. Given the message of the event, it was hard not to.
While exploring the Live Earth web site, I discovered this pleasing little tidbit:
