Did you know that your blog or website releases carbon dioxide into the air? That’s because of the computer we use for it. Let me quote Make it Green!

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.
 I don’t have anywhere near that many visitors a month but I still leave a carbon footprint. So what can I do about it? By joining the Carbon Neutral campaign they will plant a tree for me (in California) to help neutralize it.
Their goal is to have 500 blogs in the campaign by Earth Day and they haven’t hit 300 yet so why don’t you join too? It’s easy and it’s good for the environment.
