CO2Stats: Measuring a Site's Impact

CO2Stats is a widget that tracks and calculates the CO2 emissions of a website. The emissions add up with each pageview (the widget below is starting at 0.000198).

The widget tracks all pageviews on its installed websites and currently reaches one million uniques a month. As mentioned in the San Jose Mercury ” It works on the assumption that three minutes on a Web site generates three grams of CO2 – roughly equal to the amount one person generates by breathing for 4.5 minutes.”

CO2Stats was sent to me by its creators after I posted about Dopplr Offsettr (Radar post). Like Dopplr Offsettr its an attempt to make people aware of the environmental impact of their actions.
