Title: The Negative Impact of ICT in Respect of Energy and Resource Demand

Description: How much energy and electricity do all our electric devices consume? Computers, smart phones, tablets etc. In the general marketing, these devices are said to spare other forms of energy demand, nothing is said how much energry they consume by themselves. E.g. 70 per cent of the resources and energy on the Internet go to video watching, mostly for amusement. The same numbers for the mobile net is 80 per cent.
