My Blog Is Carbon Neutral

What the heck is this? First saw it in Auntie Merryn's blog. Then it shows up in Mummy Ling's Blog and now at Auntie mNhL Blog.

Thus Mamarazzi went to the website to check it out.

Read in the website that Alexander Wissner-Gross, PhD, physicist at Harvard University, have conducted a study. Said blogging also can create Carbon Dioxide. He said that an average website causes about 0.02g (0,0008oz.) of carbon dioxide for each visit. Eeee...this is not good at all. Some hor...he said that this can be tracked back to the immense energy usage from (mainframe) computers, servers, and their cooling systems. Betul or not? Got so "Kua cheong" meh?

According to him, assuming an average blog gets 15,000 visits a month, it has yearly carbon dioxide emissions of 3,6kg (8lb.) Wah lau eh...if this blog have that many visits a month then I be kaya already loh. But yet...prevention is better than cure, right? Though this blog doesn't have that many visit per month, better help and spread the word lor. Hope it will be a greener world when I grow up.

Ahhh...don't wanna pening lah. How to verify all this? Mamarazzi is not a rocket scientist. The main thing is that they say they are going to plant a tree in Plumas for each blog that write a short blog post about their programme “My blog is carbon neutral”. Planting tree is good, right? Planting tree helps the environment. The tree is said would be planted in Spring 2010 by the Arbor Day Foundation. It's good that somebody is taking the initiative to do so and Mamarazzi shouldn't be so skeptical.
