Has anyone bumped in to any concrete numbers over the environment impact of our usage of suboptimal software, eg js+web tech instead of native desktop apps, the power usage of crypto currencies, the cost of constantly brute forcing problems instead of elegant solutions?

Any data is much appreciated - it trying to write something intelligent about this.


@e8johan afair bitcoin was order of magnitude of percent of world power usage. Or smaller developed countries

@jacek do you have a good reference (I'll do some searching as well)

@e8johan I don't have any research articles, but there are media publications.
