What? A Google search creates CO2 emissions?

Posted Wednesday, January 14, 2009, at 9:02 AM

This is an interesting "behind the scenes" study about how using the internet is not as "green" as one might think.


In this study it was determined that 2 internet searches on Google created the same amount of CO2 "as boiling a pot of water".

Yikes! I boil a lot of water each day!

Does this mean I should move my plants,computer and hot pot to the same area to take advantage of the greenhouse gases?

I know that print media makes better mulch,paper mache',fish wrap,hats,boats,kites,floor protection and housebreaking tool but now the net can make our plants grow and alleviate hyperventilation?

Who knew?

Maybe,the plants would grow even better if we did Google searches AND let them Voip and have access to YouTube.

(Music and taking to plants encourages theeir growth,right?)

Methinks this merits further study.

You've helped us Weed 'Em and Reapers grow by talking to us,so why wouldn't your chlorophyll-breathing buddies not benefit,as well?
