Can we store data in plants? Sending an email, streaming a video, uploading photos to the cloud, or simply just listening to this podcast. All these apparently trivial everyday actions have one thing in common: They come with a hidden environmental cost. The greenhouse gas emissions from the data centers that make all these things possible now equal those of the air industry and are spiraling rapidly. In this episode, we take a closer look at ways of storing data more sustainably, including in what is perhaps the greenest way of all – in plants!
Putting sound to global challenges
‘Nordic Talks’ is a series of talks and podcasts addressing the biggest global challenges.
Through conversations with some of the brightest minds in the Nordics and their counterparts from around the world we want to provide a space for contemplation and to share inspiration on how to take action on sustainability issues in our everyday lives. All Nordic Talks are dedicated to addressing the UN's Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) challenges.
NORDIC TALKS is brought to you by The Nordics, a project under The Nordic Council of Ministers.
All Nordic Talks are dedicated to addressing the SDG challenges. We want to inspire each other to act – for a better, more sustainable future.
