/GLOBAL DATA DELETED

This is the amount of data destroyed since the launch of The Big Data Takedown. Useless data is a global enemy of the environment. Cloud computing uses energy equivalent to the output of 30 nuclear plants. Let’s shut one down!

#BIGDATATAKEDOWN

Thank you for joining #TheBigDataTakedown and reducing your digital carbon footprint. Now let the world know you are a digitally responsible person and help us get more people to join the cause.

ABOUT

Our files, photos and entire lives are backed-up in the cloud. But the cloud is not this white, clean, ethereal place à la '2001 A Space Odyssey' some would have us believe.

It's a data farm that can take more energy to run than a medium-size town.

As we accumulate more and more terabytes of useless data, data centers around the world keep expanding, using more than 30 billions watts to run, equivalent to the output of 30 nuclear plants. The Big Data Takedown is a movement designed to destroy data on a massive, global scale.
