Green blogging

You may or may not have seen it before, but this post is an example of green blogging, intended to demonstrate how a more restrained use of electrons can save surprising amounts of energy. At the moment, it isn't possible to calculate the reduction in CO2 emissions a blog post such as this can lay claim to, as compared to a standard non-green blog post, but my preliminary computer model suggests it may be an alarming amount. 

Why alarming? Well, in spite of this green-spirited example of  climate-aware blogging, I notice that few other bloggers are following the green blogging trend. I suspect that the best way forward on this is to complete my computer model with the aim of showing just how wasteful denier-blogging can be. Of course we are probably not talking of millions of tons of CO2 here, not unless some of my parameters are too conservative and certainly not until I get some funding.

More on green blogging as my energy-saving model develops.

All well and good but I had to fire up the electron microscope to read it.

Well yes, but it is a bit hard on the old eyes. I shall have to brood on the implications.

TT - but that uses even more electrons!

D - sacrifices have to be made if we are to make real energy savings.

Was there a post there?

JH - you should have 'seen' my first effort.
