Very little. Man, in total produces 0.4 % of the annual greenhouse gases. Over half to heat and cool our buildings and another 30% for transportation. So, the total percentage of greenhouse gases made for all non HVAC or transportation related issues is less than 0.05%. This would include all electrical and gas powered non transport activities. Computing is a minor contributor.
