Green TV

I've been seeing advertising for this on Discovery channel quite a bit.
I was under the assumption that it was a new cable channel, but I guess you have to pay attention to know that it's webTV. Silly me, I DON"T pay much attention to commercials unless they're extremely good or teeth gratingly bad.

Anyway, I was wondering about just how green a mass broadcasting GreenTV can be, since they tout themselves as "totally Green!"
I don't know how to break it to them, but the power stations that make the electricity to power their servers, switches, routers and home computers belch out thousands of pounds of 'greenhouse gasses' daily to power their green network. --Because their Envirowako buddies fight tooth and nail against letting us go nuke in the U.S.

Then we have all the poisonous, caustic, exotic and rare materials that go into the production of all those electronic marvels that spread the 'green' word about living in harmony with Gaea.

And in addition to the usual Liberal hypocrisy about their 'feel goodism' you 8really8 need broadband to take advantage of this newest Green info network. If you're on dial-up your pretty mush SOL because you're on the wrong side of the digital divide.
But that's Ok because the people that put this together are copacetic because even if the result is tits-up, it's the *intent* that matters.
