The amount of data produced globally continues to grow exponentially. Units such as Tera and Peta are no longer capturing the magnitude. As new terms such as Wispabytes and Crunchiebytes have been necessary, there are fears that the extent of this uncontrolled data production could soon have unintended consequences. Uncleansed data is not being disposed of, capacity levels are already being reached with clouds becoming saturated, and the inevitable precipitation could have irreversible effects. The Journal of Knowledge & Environmental Science (J.O.K.E.S.) has forecast that by 2030 there could be a film of excess data covering the whole of the earth’s surface.
