[All Platforms][Music] Let's reduce Spotify CO2 emissions

Streaming music has unintended environmental consequences : by 2016 the generation of GHGs by storing and transmitting digital files for those listening to music online is estimated to be between 200 million kilograms and over 350 million kilograms in the US alone.

I am actually quite devastated to find that there is hardly any discussion in this!

There are hundreds of thousands or even millions of kids all over the world demonstrating each friday for our climate, and nobody wonders about Spotify?

Come on, there must be a huge overlap! Why is there no outcry?

What about CO2 neutral Spotify Servers? Even monsters like Google are almost there. Or is this as innovative as Spotify gets?

If Fridays for Future really wanted to get serious, they'd have to cancel their Spotify subscriptions. What a pity.
