If I tell you I’m about to talk about video conferencing, many of you will want to click “next.” I know: you’re thinking, that’s so 1964 World’s Fair. Hear me out. New technologies that rely on broadband Internet have so improved the video conference experience that even major companies doing major deals are sealing them in virtual space. That means less airline travel and fewer of the greenhouse gas emissions that scientists say are warming the planet. By some calculations, a single long-haul air flight can have a greater warming effect than commuting daily to work by car for a year.
