I’m worried about the environment, won’t running this program increase greenhouse gas emissions?/ Won’t running my computer at full or near full usage all the time make my electricity bill skyrocket?
F@H needs only to be run when your computer is running. From the folding@home website here the average computer uses 100W a day if heavily loaded, which works out at about $10/month (using a value of $0.15/kWh) if the computer is run flat out 24/7. If you factor in the time that you would be using that machine anyway, the cost is going to be much lower. As for the PS3, thus uses about 200W (using the original power supply) and about 115W on the newer power supplies in the 40/80gig models. That is between $12 and $20 a month again assuming the machine folds 24/7 and $0.15/kWh.
Cheers to Tarx:There is also the fact that treating all the diseases which this project can and probably will help find cures for, has a significant environmental cost (i.e. to power all the necessary machinery), and also a significant financial cost should you become a victim of the diseases. The comparatively small extra outlay for running F@H is peanuts compared to the cost of treating these diseases.
Well actually most people can make it so that it has no effect on the environment! In most states across the US you can call you Electrical company or choose an option on your bill, and actually choose were you get your energy. You can choose to get it cleanly (wind power, solor, etc.), or the regular way. It is a tiny bit more expensive but to me its worth it.

For many people (that don't know enough of biology to help another way) it is worth to pay a bit, for taking part on finding a possible helpful result.

You better go blame the guys looking for alien voices or the next 10^xxxx. prime number.
How does this stuff help the People?

Nope the reason I don't agree is that the idea that you yourself will contract a disease that F@H tries to cure, is narrow minded and is ultimately a selfish reason to take part in the program. If you want to take part, take part for the greater good. Don't take part in a program that may, or may not cure the disease that you have a 0.01% chance of contracting anyway.

But what does it hurt by folding? All you have to do is install one program and leave it running. Easiest thing you can do.

why do I care if I get cancer I don't have it and I still fold. I don't fold just for me like you suggest so I still have a very hard time understanding why you hate us so much did someone you know get cancer and we didn't find the cure fast enough for you??? why so much hate??

You never cease to amaze me...LOL

I'm selfish because I fold...

WOW, you really are a complete idiot...

You would be better off trolling threads that pertain to you...Or does that defeat your purpose in life...

Now I understand why so many have you ignored...
