Microsoft vs. Global Warming

At the recent global warming summit in Copenhagen, Microsoft explained how it can reduce greenhouse gases, including its support of datacenter efficiency (largely through virtualization), video and Web conferencing, and cloud computing. Not just that, but the company talked about its work with global warming researchers mostly through database and data warehouse support.
