Somewhere along the road, something disappeared from my side bar:
This is from way back in 2010, when Blogs were "the thing" and so the Green Nutcases were Very Concerned:
Oh, now this is rich. German greenies calculate that a blog which gets 15,000 hits or more a month (yay! we qualify!) pumps out 8 pounds of carbon dioxide a year.
Hmmm ... rough math time: 15,000 "hits" corresponds to roughly 20,000 page views (in the old SiteMeter days). I've been running about 4 times that for 12 years now so - let's see ... carry the one - this blog has belched 350 pounds of carbon into the atmosphere.
Sigh. Those are rookie numbers. Must up my game.
Or we can all just think it's a bunch of Eco-fascist nonsense by some very unsavory totalitarian would-be overlords who deserve all the mockery we can give them. And so this will go proudly back into the side bar to make a permanent focus of mockery for the oh-so-mockable.
