Open source vs. global warming

From Freaklabs:

The Open Source IPv6 Automation Network (OSIAN), implemented in a one-inch circuit board called the SuRF Block, is shipping as a development kit with the hope of using IPv6 against global warming.

SuRF in this case stands for Sensor Ultra Radio Frequency. The $300 developer kit implements a low power, low bit rate radio system running under the IEEE802.15.4 standard at 900 MHz, using the TinyOS.
