What is Green Programming?

This is just an initial post.

Green programming is an attempt to synthesize the principals of environmentally sound policy and the Agile Software set. IOW, just like we should aspire to use renewable energy sources to help the health of the planet, we should also use reusable software elements to create robust, healthy code for our customers. Eco-friendly practices might be thought of as applicable to software devlopment. Just as we are concerned with the various biota and climate of the planet, we should be concerned with the over-all health of the software eco-system. I am specifically concerned with threats to free and open source software from patents and copyright concerns.

Actually, I just needed a title and domain, so I thought I might ride the currently fashionable "Green" movement. Please forgive my impetuousness.
