While millions of people tap into Google without a thought for the environment, a typical search generates about 7g of carbon dioxide. Boiling a kettle generates about 15g.
What I found more interesting though was the footnote...
...maintaining a character in the Second Life virtual reality game requires 1752 kilowatt hours of electricity a year. That is almost as much used by the average Brazilian.
I wonder how much CO2 the average WOWer grinds through a year!"
Why not Contact them to express your appreciation!"PacMan Is Gone Dear users — we have been asked by Bandai to remove Pacman from Facebook. So around 2-3pm PST today we will be taking Pacman off the application and replacing it with other games. We are truly sorry to have to take away your favorite game, but we will be talking with Bandai to hopefully be able to return Pacman to you — our devoted users. So in the meantime please enjoy the new games we will be adding every few days. Please let us know which ones you like or don't like. -DL Please hang in there we are making new and better games and we will be adding score tracking to those as well. We were caught by surprise by Bandai and they only gave us 24 hours to change it. We are still hoping to get PacMan back up by negotiating with Bandai.
