Actually, it's more like .2 grams.

I mean, come on...

Google is secretive about its energy consumption and carbon footprint. It also refuses to divulge the locations of its data centers. However, with more than 200 million Internet searches estimated globally daily, the electricity consumption and greenhouse-gas emissions caused by computers and the Internet is provoking concern.
What kind of article asserts, in its first paragraph, that Google searches use X amount of energy, then not two paragraphs later, say that nobody really has any idea how much energy google uses? Junk journalism, that's the kind.

Yup. That's what I thought, which is why I posted it in this forum. (I also searched to make sure it hadn't been posted before )

Not sure how this one is a similar thread but it's one of the oldest threads I've seen.

My guess is not. Then you would be using our servers which are probably the least energy efficient servers out there.
