Innovative electronic technologies that have brought us into the Information Age could now be the key to addressing one of the greatest environmental challenges of our times-global climate change. Taking a Byte Out of Carbon explains how electronics andcommunications companies have already developed products that will substantially reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the near future, even in the face of a continuing debate over the shape of an economically sound climate policy. The report profiles fourteen companies and their "smart" technologies which allow people to carry out their activities in ways that reduce, and even eliminate, the need to burn fossil fuels, as well as create products that promote electronic growth and improved living standards at the same time.
