In all honesty; this is not something I have been thinking of before….
It has been published by the Sunday Times that two researchers said that 2 searches on Google – gives the same carbon dioxide as boiling a kettle of water…..
Which is about 7g CO2 the Google servers where “making”….
Google is not really agreeing with these numbers and say that one search will take about 0.2g CO2.
But also one of the researchers said that they never mentioned the name Google – it seems that the Sunday Times just wanted “to blame Google”….
BUT; are you looking into “how much energy you are taking with your computer….??”
For example; if you use a CRT screen – you probably should use a black Google…. as that one is using 15 Watt less then a white Google…!
But yeah; using a LCD screen is already way better – as they already use less energy overall….
