Bummer: Your iPad Is Killing Gaia

Sorry, Warmists, it’s time for you to give up your iPad, it’s bad for the environment because it uses too much electricity, which destroys sustainability and causes the seas to rise

(Grist) ……you have to charge the thing. According to a study from the Electric Power Research Institute, adding the cost of powering your $1,400 investment brings your annual total up to … $1,401.36.

Consumers who fully charge their iPad tablet every other day can expect to pay $1.36 for the electricity needed annually to power the device, according to an  assessment by the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI).

The analysis shows that each model of the iPad consumes less than 12 kWh of electricity over the course of a year, based on a full charge every other day. By comparison, a plasma 42” television consumes 358 kWh of electricity a year.

Also mentioned are iPhones, laptops, and even CFL bulbs. Now, CFLs are cheaper than incandescent, yet, they still use power. Time to turn the computers and Apple products off while sitting in the dark. It’s the only way to save Gaia. A buck here, .25 cents there, it all ads up when all Warmists practice what they preach.

    As was mentioned elsewhere: If the sole point is to reduce energy usage at all costs, time to mandate we replace all Incandescent and CFL bulbs with IPODS and IPADS.

    Do it for the children.

    Apple prides itself on having low energy consumption. Just another reason why hippies and greenies have always chosen Apple products.

  4. Gumball_Brains says:

    Yep, and their choosing them has nothing whatsoever to do with them being sheep.

    Just like with CFL, why spend 2x-4x less money on a comparable product when everyone else who is in the club buys it too?

    Saw an Apple Gen3 for sale today… nearly $1000. Yeah. Can I save a dollar a year in energy-charging costs so I can spent $400-$800 more upfront? please, oh please!
