Did You Know A Search Session On Google And Boiling A Kettle Produce The Same Amount Of CO2?

Google-250x225U.S physicist Alex Wissner-Gross claimed that one Google search produced 7g of CO2after he conducted some research on the search engine. That would mean 2 Google searches would produce the same amount of CO2 as a boiling kettle! However, Google did not agree and were of the opinion a search only yielded around 0.2g of CO2 as mentioned above.

Either way, it’s now a lot clearer that a person’s carbon footprint is probably a lot larger that they thought. Even a Google search produces CO2,which of course contributes to global warming.

So there you have it, you now know about the CO2 produced when searching on the internet.
