Juicy stats on Efficiency from Google

JuicyHow much energy does searching the internet use? That’s the question that Google addressed recently on its own blog. Their figures compare the amount of carbon dioxide emitted each time a person does a Google search with other activities, like making a cheeseburger or a glass of orange juice.
