Roberto, go back and read what I wrote, will you ?

I have absolutely no idea which protocol is more "green" at this
point in time.

HTTP/1.1 is not without its touble in this respect.  For instance
the combination of Chunked and PDP-11 friendly POSIX APIs are very
expensive, so a sensible framing format in HTTP/2.0 can save a LOT
of system-calls over HTTP/1.1.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
