Earth Day: Internet Killing The Planet? [INFOGRAPHIC]

Earth Day is a day that is intended to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s natural environment. Earth Day was founded by United States Senator Gaylord Nelson as an environmental teach-in first held on April 22, 1970.

Earth Day 2011: Infographic

I got some interesting information from this Infographic (from WordStream). Mentioned some of them below.

  • The entire world will be online around 2017*.
  • In 2005 The United States had a total of 10.3 Million Data Centers. That year these data centers consumed enough energy to power the entire UK for 2 months.
  • One Google search for “soylent green” produces the same amount of CO2 as driving a car 3 inches.
  • A single SPAM message produces the equivalent of 0.3 grams of CO2.

Do tell us how bad (or good) the Internet is for the planet.
