    All it would take is building 100 Desalination plants across the country, draw from the ocean, convert to fresh and everything is good, particularly in parched California who has no clue how to manage water.

    “Carbon emissions from data centers ALREADY represent 0.2 percent of the world’s total carbon dioxide emissions, compared to 0.6 percent for airlines, according to a 2010 report.” 2010! How much you want to bet the numbers have been reversed?

    So, all the left wingers jump on the bandwagon to regulate airlines’ emissions, but not a peep from them about data centers emissions, much less their water usage.
