1g CO2 per gram of paper[/url] and about 7g CO2 for Google search  :whistle:

Very old link there, talked about 200m to 500m searches per day which sounded low, a quick google (!!) says it's more like 5.6 billion per day.  And a google search of 'how much co2 per google search' (!!!) says 0.2 grams.

Yeah wouldn't shock me if it's wrong, was just the first couple of sources I found! Google has done a bunch of cool work using AI to help improve data center efficiency which has apparently been very effective.

I'm certainly not going to lose any sleep over what coffee filters I'm using or how many searches I'm doing.

Surely this is all pretty irrelevant, if anyone really wanted to deal with climate change, noone would drink any tea or coffee, unless it's nettle tea.

Unnecessarily heating up water is the devils work. People should be having cold brew nettle tea, and be glad of it.

It's all only a matter of time before the only option is drinking your own recycled urine like Kevin Costner in Waterworld.

You'll all be glad of cold brew nettle urine tea when the Climate Wars have disrupted global supply chains. You'll sit there with your fellow refugees, keeping warm around a burning bundle of now-useless 50 notes, taking it in turns to swap stories and rumours.

"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. A mile-wide flotilla of Javan coffee barges torpedoed by a Montenegrin U-boat off the shoulder of Oman."
