Technology and Electric Power

We have seen some very big advances in technology during the last 50 years. A lot has changed and one of the most important changes are computers. These days most computers are connected to the Internet and living without any computers or the Internet would be hard to imagine. However, it is true that computers consume more and electric power. Processors have more and more cores, while graphic cards become faster and faster. The electric power usage is bound to grow due to this and so is our dependency on electric power. I think that while the fact that computers use more and more electric power is not such a great thing, it does not mean that governments should try to discourage people from using electric power. By discouraging people from using electric power, what they are actually doing is limiting access to technology.
