This is the season of giving, and a lot of people are going to ask for a new television for Christmas. But flat screen TVs could pump hundreds of thousands of tons of extra carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, contributing to global warming.
In the Independent, Ben Russell warns that these new televisions could increase emissions by 700,000 tons a year by 2010. This is not because the new sets actually emit CO2 gas, it's because they use so much more power, and producing all that electricity is what increases CO2 emissions.
