    Default the environmental impact of Google searches

    Performing two Google searches from a desktop computer can generate about the same amount of carbon dioxide as boiling a kettle for a cup of tea, according to new research.

    I have boiled about 300 kettles then today, how much carbon dioxide is that?

    File a complaint with my boss, I am so bored at work that I just do random searches...
    Is this the land where sun brightly shines, is this the existence of a heaven's sign?
    Is this the locus the hallowed focus, where grace love and harmony combine?

    I am after googleing it a few times and can't find any evidence of it been true so I had a cuppa and googled it again. If it is true I could have killed a polar bear or an arctic fox.

    If you are worried about your google carbon footprint then use Blackle in the future. Have a read of their about page, it's meant to reduce your energy usage as it's a black page instead of white thus using less energy
