Yes, but then you have a methane issue, not to mention the hamster-turd-pellets-the-size-of-refrigerators removal problem.

The whole thing is actually an unsolvable terrestrial problem. There is no satiation of the requirements for compute and storage, so, to not affect the planet surface, datacenters must be run in space where they can't influence the planet. Plenty of sun for the electricity and plenty of cold air for the cooling. Massive, multi-channel microwave for the connectivity and the problem is solved.
