NEWS: Computers against Climate Change
Climate Change causes many of us immense concern. Staying positive often seems hard. But with the future unwritten yet looking more watery and cold every day what can we do to stem the tide?
Well besides greening your life there is at least one other massive thing you can do right now, for free, using just your mouse.
You can become part of the biggest climate change experiment and join the attempt to find out what the future really is likely to hold.
The BBC has joined forces with climateprediction.net, the massive distributed computing project created to harness the planets home computing power. The project is designed to model as many Climate Change scenarios as quickly as possible.
The results? So far the BBC's campaign has seen 61,009 computers join in from 138 countries. WOW! They plan to create a tv programme to discuss the conclusions etc. Awesome!
So if you leave your PC (or MAC for that matter) on a lot then at least give it something to do in the background.
