http://serverfault.com – How much energy does transfering (let's say) a gigabyte on the same continent consume, over the internet ? I am asking because everything (media, data, processing) is moving on the cloud and I don't know how well does these transfers affect the environment in comparison with local storage/processing. Any opinions are welcomed (HowTos)
