Title: Manifesto per un digitale sostenibile

Description: The planet is experiencing unprecedented climate change, and the internet is part of the problem as well as part of the solution. From websites to cryptocurrencies, the Internet consumes vast amounts of electricity in data centers, networks, telecommunications and end-user devices. If the Internet were a country, it would be the seventh biggest polluter in the world. Our daily behaviors can dramatically reduce our digital impact.

Title: Eight ways to reduce your digital carbon footprint

Description: Whether it’s from doing things like burning fossil fuels through driving, cranking up the furnace or grilling a steak, we are all responsible for releasing carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, which is called our carbon footprint. When we collectively produce more carbon than the planet can absorb, the extra CO2 contributes to climate change.

Title: Digital Rebound – Why Digitalization Will Not Redeem Us Our Environmental Sins

Description: “Digitalization as a technological phenomenon of the 21st century has the power to redeem most environmental sins of our 20th century technology. This seems to be a popular belief shining through many of the optimistic media reports on digitalization. We believe, however, that this mindset is far too simplistic and counterproductive.”

Title: Overview of Climate Change Science

Description: This OER is a product of The EPA- Environmental Protection Agency, that explores the topic of climate change and global warming, Greenhouse Gases, Extreme Weather, the Climate Impacts on ecosystems, on our health, environment, and economy. • The students will be able to understand that the changing climate impacts society and ecosystems in a broad variety of ways, for example, climate change can alter rainfall, influence crop yields, affect human health, cause changes to all ecosystems, and impact our energy supply and many sectors of our economy. The students will be able to demonstrate that climate change can overwhelm the capacity of ecosystems to mitigate extreme events and disturbance, such as wildfires, floods, and drought. The students will analyze how these changes are linked to the rising levels of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in our atmosphere, caused by human activities and can offer/suggest solutions for the future.
