How the Government waste their time and your money Part 7,465

The British Government today became the first in the world to announce plans to slash the carbon footprint of its computer systems.

Information and communication technology (ICT) is responsible for up to 20% of carbon emissions generated by Government offices - around 460,000 tonnes a year. (and ££££Squillions on useless unworkable projects) Under the plan announced today by Cabinet Office Minister Tom Watson the Government aims to make energy consumption of ICT carbon neutral within four years.

Departments will be asked to take 18 key steps. They include:

Automatically switching off desktop computers outside working hours. Turning off every desktop PC in central Government for the 16 hours that fall outside the standard working day could save up to 117,500 tonnes of CO2 per year - equivalent to taking 40,000 cars off the road.

Yes and if they use Windows Vista the user will spend 30 minutes per day watching the fucking thing wind itself up and down, asking do you really want to shut down etc,

More of this shit here ....

Cabinet Office Minister Tom Watson said:

"Worldwide, computers are responsible for the same quantity of carbon emissions as the airline industry. It is a serious problem that requires a serious solution.

"That's why I'm so proud that we are the first Government anywhere in the world to formally set out exactly what we're going to do to make our ICT systems carbon neutral within four years.

Andrew Lee, Chief Executive of the Sustainable Development Commission (SDC), said:

"This is a welcome move and a radical target. As the SDC reported earlier this year, government departments have a long way to go on reducing energy consumption and carbon emissions, and tackling IT will be crucial to this effort.

God, it makes you weep.

Just discovered Bob Marshall Andrews, barrister at law, MP, part time Judge, Old Mill Hillian, supporter of the wretched Bill for rushing through criminal trials with anonymous grasses and Gordon Brown (he nominated him for leadership) called Tom Watson a "faggot" which apparently in the circles in which he moves carries a meaning that suggests not only that the person is a homosexualist but also went to public school.

Apparently it was all a misunderstanding and he was (what we lawyers call) "misheard" and he actually called him a "nasty litle turd strangler".
