Hi-tech entertainment leaving larger footprint

A study conducted in the U.K. by the Energy Saving Trust has found that while our household appliances are getting increasingly more energy efficient, our entertainment devices are energy hungry. In fact the new digital technology is sucking up as much as 4 times the old analogue devices. The Energy Saving Trust is a group established by the U.K. Government after the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, and is a great resource if you are interested in doing your part to save the planet from global warming. Regardless of whether or not you buy into Al Gore's theories, there is no need to waste! BBC has the story complete with comparison graph.
