Here's an interesting article, "Google Is Greener Than Thou: One Newspaper Equals 850 Searches in CO2 Emissions" (via Stephen's Lighthouse).
It compares the amount of CO2 emissions created for google searches to other things such as:
- a 100% recycled daily newspaper (850 searches)
- a glass of orange juice (1050 searches)
- a cheeseburger (15000 searches)
Why is everyone slamming newspapers! I love my morning newspaper! So I wont be giving it up, nor will I be giving up cheeseburgers (it's BBQ season). Pauvre le publishing industry.
