8 Source: Fraunhofer Institute, Berlin Germany and California Department of Energy (June 2007) The CO 2 emissions from the manufacture & usage of a cell phone power supply for 53 Million mobile subscribers charging once every 2 days for 2.5 years is 420 Million Pounds of CO 2. This is equivalent to driving 190,000 US cars over a 12 Month Period. Doing the Math: Why Tech Products are Greening
