“The climate problem no-one is talking about” – Maguire in Berlingske about datacenters and energy consumption

Assistant Professor James Maguire was interviewed for Berlingske Tidende about data centers in Denmark in an article focused on the energy consumption of these mega factories.
Maguire argues that there is a large degree of secrecy connected to how companies, such as Apple, Facebook and Google, organise their activities, also in relation to their energy use.
Moreover, the IT giants use of the “cloud” metaphor of internet services’ signals an “out of sight, out of mind” mentality that has been a pretext for inaction in the data and energy political discussions.
