If a short video is streamed live online, you have to pay the environment, you know? Not just YouTube or Netflix, the burden is on WhatsApp.

Send pictures to WhatsApp to anyone in the family? Or spend leisure time watching different videos movies in Netflix or YouTube? As such, we think all of these actions have no effect on the environment. But it is not. At present, when watching good show Netflix or big videos or movies with multiple ‘stream’ websites has become childish, it is simultaneously impacting the world’s climate change.

At present, the level of carbon emissions of digital technologies has exceeded the carbon emissions levels of the aerospace or aerospace industry. According to a study by Paris ‘The Shift Project’, the aerospace industry accounts for two-and-a-half percent of the world’s carbon emissions. On the contrary, four percent of the carbon emitted is due to the world’s data transfer process and its required infrastructure.

Video future danger!

A report by Cisco, a technology company, says that by 2022, about 60 percent of the world’s population will participate online. As a result, 80 percent of the ‘internet traffic’ generated will come from video websites.

Maxim Effie-Hess, researcher and environmental expert at The Shift Project, says, “Our use of the Internet requires urgent rethinking about the future. We have electricity constraints, so to fight internet demand at this rate, the use of renewable energy will have to be increased many times more”.

The process of watching videos online is traditionally data-intensive. At 2018, over 100 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide is produced from online video traffic. A country of Spain’s size emitted the same amount of carbon emitted in a year because of the crowds on this website. The better the resolution or quality of a video, the more data or data capability it needs. With the need of electricity.

To prevent this danger, Fewie-Hess says, “Using WiFi instead of mobile Internet produces less carbon. Watch video on a smaller screen than on the big screen, so there is less power consumption. Reduce unnecessary images or videos in the virtual cloud. Try to watch some low quality video instead of high resolution. So much of this problem can be dealt with”.
