How Much CO2? – don’t read this if you live near a beach

howmuchco2

Every time we do a web search we indirectly create 0.2g of CO2, sending an email equals 4g, make a 1 min cell phone call and we’re talking 57g. And so on and so forth… Ever wanted to know just how much you’re contributing to the global warming everyone’s talking about? Nope, we’re not that enthusiastic either, but it’s fascinating info. Anyway, just for posterity here it is, all set out in an easy to use, interactive chart called How Much CO2. It may or may not make your toes curl.

[One air-freighted orange creates 1 KG of CO2 – more than a 2 mile car journey? Really? Wow!]
