Should we really think about making IT green?

Brian Madden published a really nice article about the green thinking in IT and how it concerns desktop virtualization. This article ends with the following questions:

What about you? Does the whole green thing actually affect the IT department in your company? Do you pay for power? Do you do things just because they’re green? Do you even care whether VDI is more or less green? Should we spend any more time on this?

I want to answer that with: I do really care about our little planet and i know, that all the IT on this little planet is consuming more and more watts every single day (If you look @ the sales of servers and computers in general you can imagine, that power consumption of IT is growing fastly…). I know, that we are (compared to the world in 2020) just @ the beginning of an “IT-lized” world. And that’s why it is definitely worth it to think about every watt that could be saved!
