 ==== ====EBOOKS: RESUMOS EM PORTUGUÊShttp://www.ebooksreviewsbrasil.blogspot.com/  ==== ====There has been a real interest shown in electronic book readers of late, even to the point of someindustry experts predicting that these new generation of digital book readers will result in ebooksales eventually overtaking those of paperback and hardback copy. If that is to be the case, withthinking being more towards eco friendly, carbon neutrality and generally protecting theenvironment, it needs to be asked, "Will these digital ebook reader devices be good for theenvironment." It needs to be pointed out that the introduction of electronic book readers into the home, school,collage and university facilities across the globe would result, in the short term at least, in aninstant benefit. Less natural resources and raw material used, such as wood for the paper, gas forthe production of the book and the ink used in the printing process, is the first area to beaddressed, but when you look further into it, the savings to the environment can be far greater inthe long term. Let's start by saying, this is not about online shopping, it is about digital production and delivery.With online shopping the product still has to be delivered to your door, even after the possiblethousands of miles it has traveled prior to that, but digital deliver is just that. No last mile delivery,no storage, in fact, very minimal impact on the environment no matter what continent you order itfrom. To get to this point, the technology has to be available to more people, or should I say affordableto more people. Yes we know, historically new technology is always more expensive when it firstappears, but it seems to me that the electronic book readers manufacturers are missing a ratherbig trick here. If these devices were more affordable to the masses then the masses wouldembrace them and when that happens we will be in the realms of serious benefits to theenvironment. The way things had been going , eat-paper was only perceived as a temporary alterative to printedpaper, a way of receiving your purchase instantly but never a replacement for hard copy. Thisstemmed from the short comings of eat-paper in the early days of Digital Book Readers, hard toread, bad contrast and short battery life, but this has changed. With the advent of eat-ink papertechnology came the answer to those problems, exceptional battery life from the improvedcontrast and a real paper like quality to the screen background and a text that can be read in thestrongest of sunlight. Those advancements have pushed electronic book readers right to the edge of a quantum leapinto the mainstream. Authors are starting to publish straight to the ebook format at launch. Two ofthe most famous authors to have done this are Stephen King and Dan Browne, both released theirebooks at the time of launch of the Kindle2 and Sony Edition range of eat-book readers paving the
 
way that others will follow in greater numbers. As the Green Press Initiative have reported that the US alone is responsible for the use of twentymillion trees every year for book production alone. Then add to that the reported ninety five million(95,000,000) trees used in the newspaper industry every year, you can see how, if readingdevices become the norm, that these numbers can be reduced quite considerably. We are all getting more conscious recycling wise but at  one point, the GPI stated thatlandfills held 25% of paper products omitting, through decomposition, toxic greenhouse gasmethane. Not all that pollutant is from the disposal of book admittedly, but carbon dioxideproduced during printing and production of hard copy is.  Over 12 million tons of carbondioxide are produced annually from the production of traditional books, and you can guess wherethat ends up. That equates to a shockingly on-Co Friendly nine pounds of carbon dioxide for everybook produced not taking into account carbon produced from transport or premises. Neither taken into account is the immeasurable amount of carbon produced through illegaldeforestation that is occurring globally. Much of the timber from these areas could end up in paperused for printing, who knows. Then there is the scars left on many landscapes through out thecountry from legitimate logging operations, tropical forests in Indonesia lose four and a half millionacres, the Boreal forest Canada two million acres annually, with two thirds ending up as paper forreading or writing and over six million acres of forest in America's South Eastern region going thesame way. All the above environmental disasters can and would be greatly helped if electronic book readersdo in dead take that leap. As you can see from the areas highlighted above, digital ebook readersdo have a big part to play in the protection of raw materials, natural resources and the ultimatelyenvironment but only if we allow them to. If you are looking for Digital Book Readers but are having trouble cutting through the many modelson the market, the latest Sony Digital Book Readers are worth checking out. Noel Swintonattempts to unravel the mystery and jargon surrounding the electronic reader market with hisunbiased and informative articles, review blogs and comparison websites.  Article Source:http://EzineArticles.com/?expert=Noel_K._Swinton  ==== ====
