On December 2, former law professor and US Democratic Party senator from Massachusetts Elizabeth Warren shared a letter, which she sent to the CEO of New York bitcoin mining firm Greenidge Generation Holdings, Jeff Kirt, with Bloomberg. The letter raised environmental concerns.
“Given the extraordinarily high energy usage and carbon emissions associated with bitcoin mining, mining operations at Greenidge and other plants raise concerns about their impact on the global environment, on local ecosystems, and on consumer electricity costs,” Warren’s letter explains.
“Crypto mining has a huge environmental cost and is raising energy prices for consumers. Bitcoin alone consumes as much energy as Washington state. I’m calling on Bitcoin company [Greenidge Generation] to provide information on its operations and environmental impact," she added.
