How streaming music could be harming the planet

Not sure if this should be here or MMG....

After long descriptions of how environmentally damaging LP's and CD's are, we get this gem...


Current digital technology, however, gives us flawless music quality without physical deterioration. Music is easy to copy and upload, and can be streamed online without downloading. Since our digital music is less tangible than vinyl or CDs, surely it must be more environmentally friendly?

Even though new formats are material-free, that doesn’t mean they don’t have an environmental impact. The electronic files we download are stored on active, cooled servers. The information is then retrieved and transmitted across the network to a router, which is transferred by wi-fi to our electronic devices. This happens every time we stream a track, which costs energy.
Everything we do is killing the planet, period. Let us tear down all civilizations, and commit extinction level suicide to save nature. Moonbats, y'all go first.
