Being relatively new to this list, I hope this issue has not already  
been "done to death", if so please gently point me at the appropriate  
discussions.
Would the Metaverse lead to a larger or smaller CO2 emissions?
Is anyone tracking the environmental impact of increased internet use  
(including the multitude of personal and business computers being  
served by the internet) versus the reductions in environmental impact  
of not physically moving to get together to carry out discussions and  
transactions?
I recall seeing a surprising claim that 10% of America's electricity  
is going into running the current internet infrastructure, I can't  
remember whether this included user side as well.
Many thanks
Scott.
