Exploring the Environmental Footprint of the Digital Economy — A Conversation with David Rejeski
This week I sat down with David Rejeski, Visiting Scholar with the Environmental Law Institute (ELI), to learn more about his engagement in the Project on the Energy and Environmental Implications of the Digital Economy. With support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, ELI, the Yale School of the Environment, and the Center for Law, Energy & the Environment at UC Berkeley, the Project is shedding much-needed light on the true environmental and energy implications of the digital economy, focusing on blockchain technologies, sharing platforms, artificial intelligence, and other technologies. We also look back at David’s pioneering work on the implications of nanotechnology when he was heading up the Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.
