Re: Which one would be the less environment-damaging way to read papers?
Very few libraries (personal or institutional) burn, but every computer
hard drive eventually stabs you in the face.

Wondering what is more damaging to the environment, to print your pdfs
and read the paper print, or to read directly from the computer (which
may be less nice, except when searching for the mention of a term).
-In the case of the paper one is favouring destruction of the
environment in one way or another, for even if the paper does not come
from destruction of the forests, one has to expand the agricultural
area for the plants from which we get the paper.
-In the case of reading from the computer, the electric current to our
computer comes largely from coal, which favours global warming.
Any thoughts? (especially from the greener people).
