Today’s piece of egregious greenwash comes from the story about HP’s “100% wind cooled” data center and other sources. The first part of the story says “It is entirely air-cooled..”, then we get “but the facility still needed traditional chillers for those occasions” and “Installing chillers in addition to building the natural air cooling…”. Doesn’t anyone check to make sure what they’re writing makes sense? I’m not taking anything away from an admittedly impressive facility, but, if there is legacy cooling present and it has to be used, the facility is NOT “entirely air-cooled” or “100% wind cooled”. If you want to hype something, avoid contradicting yourself in the same article.
