Blogs Emit CO2? YES THEY DO!!

Monday, November 11, 2013

This is not a sponsored or paid post. It is just me telling you something I recently leaned, and in return a great company called Green Gestures is planting a tree to help reduce the carbon footprint of this blog.

In the words of a representative of Green Gestures:
Every time someone visits a web page, CO2 is emitted. These emissions come from the cooling and energy consumption of (mainframe) computer servers and hardware. According to a study by Harvard physics Ph.D Alexander Wissner-Gross, each visit to a web page results in an average of 20 milligrams (0.0008 ounces) of CO2 emissions. For a blog with average traffic (around 15,000 page views per month), the blog emits 8 lbs of CO2 each year.  

Green Gestures wants to make people aware of these affects on the environmental and help make the world a greener place.  


If you want to participate like I did, please write a short blog post and add this link  (and if you want you can even add a “One Blog, One Tree” badge found here.  Then send an e-mail here containing the URL of your post, and they will plant a tree for your blog!
