@Transflux this is really interesting.

Two big things I'm wondering:

* What do those numbers mean in practical terms? Are the differences very significant in reality?

* How much energy is used in compiling compiled languages like C, or those with runtimes like Java or C# -- especially with a team of developers all compiling every so often? I didn't see information on that, though it seems likely the languages could mostly balance out when that consideration is factored in.


@michelamarie anyway and so there are some c++ compiler configs which a smart and can skip files, no?
So probably during development using scripts use less power.

I was wondering about cython :). And the energy of ai. Training a neural network and recognizing faces.... Just to slash surveillance with its wastefulness.
