PCs and mobile phones "emit" CO2

"... The global IT industry accounts for two per cent of the world's carbon dioxide emissions - the same amount the world's aviation industry churns out, according to analyst house Gartner.
The estimate is based on the amount of energy PCs, servers, cooling, fixed and mobile phone systems, LANs, office telecommunications and printers all use within the world's offices.

What the hell!
Everything is wrong for some people. What do they want with computers? Was it better with the industrial age?? >:(

Think about this: every person produces CO2 just by breathing.
What to do about it? Perhaps:
- stop everyone from running and exercising (you health-freaks, you are polluting my air!)
- let all the Endangered Species go extinct (the less breathing animals, the better, no?!)

And if your want to start helping now:
- move slower, drop the bike and walk (real slow that is!)
- breath less frequently, but not deeper, that will only worsen the problem
- kill a couple of pandas each morning
... yes that would do.

Come on!!
What will come next? Eco-taxes on my PC???
Oops, better shut up, don't suggest even crazier ideas :(
