Dispatch from SSC Intern Emilia Pramova

Queensland company Little Green Genie (LGG) just introduced the world’s first computer carbon offset software. The program calculates how much energy is being used by a computer and then uses this information to buy a proportionate amount of carbon credits to offset the aforementioned use.
