I see fields of Green

Red roses too, and I think to my self, what a wonderful world.

But also wondering about hidden costs. So DCs being large electricity users, often get built where power is cheap and reliable. So Amazon's PR droids will promote their 'Green' credentials, yet roll coal. Luckily the energy market has a solution for this disconnect, and Amazon can probably just buy 'renewable' generation certificates to greenwash their electrons.
