Gamer 2.0 looks at gaming and global warming

We all know that driving, washing dishes and leaving our kerosene-fueled chlorofluorocarbon generators on all night are killing the environment. But what toll is the important stuff -- video games -- taking? Gamer 2.0 has recently uploaded a piece on just that topic, an examination of just how sad your video game habit is making the planet.

We won't give the whole thing away here, but the general idea seems to be that video games aren't great, but not as bad as some things you could be doing. It's a great comfort, and not only because Plutobase Joystiq is only 75 percent complete. We're also hopeful it will keep horrifying Gallagher/Earth from killing us in our sleep.
