After reading this short essay, we were impressed by the power of such a tool. It created a well-written text with the most relevant pieces of environmental-related information. ChatGPT acknowledges that AI greatly impacts the environment, especially in terms of energy and resource consumption. It also looks optimistically to the future by emphasizing the urgency of policies to encourage sustainable development in this area. Unfortunately, it did not include in the text any possible or affordable solution to find a balance, but we cannot exclude that by asking a slightly different question, it would have found an appropriate answer.
Was this the expected outcome? Yes, an essay with a neutral tone that acknowledges the problems of today and also points to a (still abstract) way forward for tomorrow.
