Today Steve Jobs released a statement in regards to the "greening" of Apple. Faced with criticism from all over the world regarding Apple's environmental practices, Mr. Jobs felt the time was right to lay out the facts on what Apple has done and what they plan for the future. I, for one, applaud the decision to release this document and am quite impressed with what the company has done to date and where they are headed in the future.
One of the television programs I work on is "Assignment Earth" with noted environment reporter Gary Strieker and I'm always on the look out for positive steps to maintain and save our environment. It's good to see Apple is answering the call on environmental issues in the computer industry.
