This is how disinformation spreads.

As an Amazon employee she should know that Amazon’s AWS (which has committed to achieving 100% renewable energy) dramatically shrinks the carbon emissions footprint of data centers companies would’ve otherwise needed to build.

2. Amazon announced three new wind farms - one in Ireland, one in Sweden, and one in US. When complete, these projects are expected to generate 670,000 megawatt hours (MWh) of renewable energy annually. The company has multiple wind and solar farms generating renewable energy.

3. The least environmentally friendly aspect of Amazon’s ecosystem is also the one that employs many humans - fulfillment and delivery - the latter often involves partners like USPS; replacing chunks of these with zero-emissions robots could further shrink Amazon’s emissions.
