One of the standards at the end of a porn scene is for the starlet to get interviewed on camera briefly to say that the scene went well and that she wasn't mistreated. In some cases she will say yes to both questions for fear of not receiving her paycheck.{...}
Hold on a sec. Are those "some girls and guys" been raised in a cave by primitive parents|relatives with no friends and education? After reaching age of consent they should know what "camera" is. They should know that that industrie is not just rose garden but thorns aswell. When i was in school i was informed about drugs and sex sideeffects so aren't everyone? Then it is exception of rule and should be police or fbi involved. In normal standart conditions people learn all this growing up.

Dooh! Of course it is not fault of object|item|tool for being produced or used for multipurpose tasks. They are not alive so cannot take blame. Same thing with science and religion and everything else in our world. It does not matter what exist but how it exist and affect everyone.

Interesting notion. "it generates 300 million tons of CO2 per year"

If they weren't doing that, would they simply be doing some other CO2 producing thing?

Deliberately ignoring most of this thread, and the p-word, and assuming that the numbers are more or less correct - I am left with an important observation:

Bandwidth adversely affects our planet!

I have been suspecting for a while that the numbers might be uncomfortably large, what with whole software suites running through the web, and digital photo/video being extremely data hungry. Really, think about the games you played 15-20 years ago - a whole world encoded in less than 1MB - or the whole bible in as little as 1.4MB - compare that to any smartphone picture, let alone a video. The size comparison to actual software/code used today just boggles the mind. And everybody and their 3 kids are pushing most of it through the web, redundantly.

Video streaming as a whole and "the cloud", must account for most of the web traffic.

Needless bandwidth usage - i.e. where "the cloud" is used where local storage would have sufficed or where videos are streamed and watched over and over instead of just downloaded to watch locally. As ever with streaming, with DRM, with the computer increasingly being used as a TV, (which in the case of a smartphone is fully portable) corporate greed and the general fecklessness, demanding nature and laziness of people is at the root of the problem.

Who knows, as with the current fashion for reducing "single use plastic" (not that I've noticed much reduction), "bandwidth conservation" may be the next hot topic. Any proposed measures would of course be squarely targeted at the end consumer, while sparing corporations to be as wasteful as they please.

classic: you take a picture on your phone and send it to your friend, who is standing next to you, via whatsapp (or plain email, doesn't matter in thiscase). we're doomed.

I sincerely hope so (and I also hope the single use plastic reduction will take hold).

I hope it doesn't take hold like it did at McDonalds! Turns out their new paper straws aren't recyclable whereas the old plastic ones were in principle. Ouch!

No point, it generates more carbon to recycle small scraps of paper than they represent. Paper is fully and cleanly biodegradable. If we start using hemp paper so it does not represent TREE loss, there is a large net gain to using paper over plastic. The net gain is smaller, but real, even using tree fiber.

Focus on the goal. Recycling is not the goal.
