How Mobility affects the environment. Top environmental Implication of smartphone boom
Smartphones and data centers are damaging to the environment and will have the largest carbon footprint in the tech industry by 2040. Researchers came to this conclusion after estimating the carbon footprint of devices such as laptops, tablets, smartphones, and desktops – as well as data centers and communication networks collectively known as information and communications technology (ICT). Smartphone poses a serious burden on the environment, gobbling up power and precious materials before heading to the landfill. In the developing countries where they are recycled or dismantled, they can end up in the rivers and soil, where they help contribute to cancer, damage to the nervous system and brain development in children.
