One Cheeseburger Equals 15,000 Google Searches, Environmentally Speaking

If that sounds like an absolutely insane comparison to you, you're right. But congratulations to Google, for being more environmentally conscious than the dastardly orange juice and cheeseburger industries.

In response to a lot of allegations that its massive data centres emit tons of CO2, Google came up with this little chart to show how much better for the environment they are than totally irrelevant products from mostly irrelevant industries. Starting off with the least irrelevant, one printed newspaper is equal to 850 searches, which might actually come up in some kind of new media vs. print debate. But orange juice? Cheeseburgers? Come on, Google. [TechCrunch]
