    Default Environmentalists now after the internet!

    The loonies are now after the internet.

    I do hope that means they will all stop using it and let the normal people get on with it.

    A typical search through the online giant's website is thought to generate about 7g of carbon dioxide.
    Dr Alex Wissner-Gross, a physicist from Harvard University who is leading research into the subject, has estimated that browsing a basic website generates about 0.02g of CO2 for every second it is viewed.
    So really conclusive figures/proof there then?
    A separate analysis by John Buckley, of carbonfootprint.com, a British environmental website, put the CO2 emissions of a Google search at between 1g and 10g.
    Well that's a helluva difference in figures! Like saying my car gets somewhere between 5 and 50 mpg!

    On his website, CO2stats.com, Dr Wissner-Gross wrote...

    Err, pot - kettle - black? Those websites will be hosted on servers with backup/redundancy at data centres around the country/world!

    There is a fantastic example of this at a company near to where I work. They are part of a large global conglomerate and their head of environmental issues drives a stonking great big 4 by 4! Genius.
