NYC is buying power from Quebec while the electricity generated by the St. Lawrence Seaway power authority, once used to manufacture aluminum, is powering Bitcoin mining.

This ain't green.

Bitcoin mining is trying to soak every last drop of energy from the system and calls it "efficiency" and "green". Bitcoin mining provides no new energy benefits for citizens, all it's doing is trying to extract more energy for itself.
