I saw a button on the sidebar of a blog I was reading and looked into this. I had no idea that there was such a large impact! Join this cause and make your blog Carbon Neutral!
This information is from the Carbon Neutral website.
How much carbon dioxide does your blog create?
According to a study by Alexander Wissner-Gross, PhD, physicist at Harvard University and environmental activist, an average website causes about 0.02g (0,0008oz.) of carbon dioxide for each visit. Assuming an average blog gets 15,000 visits a month, it has yearly carbon dioxide emissions of 3,6kg (8lb.). This can mainly be tracked back to the immense energy usage from (mainframe) computers, servers, and their cooling systems.
Does your blog have more than 15,000 visitors a month? Just e-mail us at CO2email@example.com. We make sure we neutralise your blog too.
One tree neutralises the carbon dioxide emissions of your blog
The atmosphere can be relieved by an average of 5kg (11lb.) carbon dioxide every year by planting one tree. An average blog causes 3.6kg (8lb.) of carbon dioxide emissions. Consequently, a tree neutralizes the carbon dioxide emissions of a blog. Since a tree lives for an average of 50 years, carbon dioxide emissions of your blog can be completely neutralised for this time period.
