"Molai, who was born in the indigenous Mising tribe of Assam, said that in 1979, when he was just16, encountered a large number of snakes that had died due to excessive heat after floods washed them onto the tree-less sandbar. That is when he planted around 20 bamboo seedlings on the sandbar. He started working on the forest in 1979 when the social forestry division of Golaghat district launched a scheme of tree plantation on 200 hectares at Aruna Chapori situated at a distance of 5 km from Kokilamukh in Jorhat district.

Data Centers Aren't Devouring the Planet's Electricity—Yet

"A new analysis estimates that data-center workloads have increased more than sixfold since 2010. But the study, published Thursday in the journal Science, concludes that data-center energy consumption has changed little, because of vast improvements in energy efficiency.
