I read an interesting article this afternoon, talking about using light to transmit data, resulting in an incredibly faster Wi-fi called the Li-fi! While this seemed interesting in the beginning, soon i began to wonder.. are we making a sun out of the earth? The earth comes with certain atmospheric conditions that is supporting life extremely well today..for all we know, fiddling with it for faster internet, may trigger a flux reversal or tearing of the ozone layer or extinction of dolphins! (Unless someone has a thorough understanding of scatter diagrams and the universe). Imagine, light bulbs buffering 20 year long videos to billions of smart phones, messing with the atmosphere!
Do we really have to be so data-greedy? Why not just step out of the balcony and enjoy the weather? 🙂
