In other words, it uses the cover of the US’ current emergencies to ram through polluting projects. That means agencies like the Environmental Protection Agency would be able to waive provisions put in place by laws like the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).

Cities provide people with opportunities to improve their quality of life. Hence, the population of cities is growing at an increasing rate. To meet the needs of the expanding population and to fulfill their lifestyle needs, the government is trying to make cities smarter by using technology.

With the increase IT products and applications, there is an increase in demand to manufacture it. Green IT, also known as green computing, makes IT products and IT applications in an environmentally-friendly way. The concept of Green IT came into existence when the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency launched the Energy Star program in 1992. Energy Star is used to promote and recognize energy efficiency and helps organizations to make decisions accordingly. The prime objective of green IT is to minimize the negative environmental effects of manufacturing, operating and disposing of IT-related products and applications. The adoption of green IT can help address challenges to ensuring sustainability in smart cities.

Technology is unavoidable, whether it’s the smartphone in your pocket, the computer on your desk, or the emails in your inbox. Unfortunately, all those gadgets and apps also have a pretty terrible impact on the environment.

No one is asking you to ditch your technology entirely, but with a little extra thought and a few sacrifices you can reduce the amount of pollution your gadgets are putting out into the world. Here are three ways to start putting the planet first.
