Green hosting still applicable?

Now that my websites in the Irvine Data Centre are running off of power generated by diesel generators, can I still claim that my website is carbon neutral? Will the decrease in efficiency of the generators and the uncaptured carbon generated by their use be offset?

The residents of Irvine must be just trilled! Nothing says progress like a bunch of diesel generators running while the power grid is up and the UPS technicians are wearing clown shoes…


Technicians? pfft! You mean UPS Engineers and Power Engineers!

(If there was a technician around it would have been fixed yesterday).
