Then a person made a comment on LinkedIn about my choice of programming and why wasn’t I choosing an “energy efficient programming language?” The comment piqued my interest and prompted me to write about it sooner than later.

Here in the United States, a law was recently passed that allows people to get all kinds of credits for all manner of energy efficient home upgrades and cars to try to get off our reliance on non-renewable energy sources.
