    Lightbulb CO2Stats, what do you think of this?

    Has anybody heard of this site? http://www.co2stats.com/

    It was mentioned in FastCompany...

    The idea is interesting, but my impression is that the indicator of Greeniness (what a word!!)
    that this site providess may be misleading, and that it is just a marketing accolade...

    It really seems like its another company jumping on the green bandwagon. Unless you sell "green tools" or sell to communes that try to be 100% green, its just a tacky addon to a website.

    I mean, I really do not think anyone cares. I dont think the datacenters are especially "green" especially if they ever have to use catapiller generators, heh.

    IMHO

    EDIT:
    Also think of the backup website you are going to have to buy to display this when your site is down. "Sorry, the sun has not been out much for 3 days, so our solar power generator is not working. The site will be back up when the sun shines. PRAY FOR SUN PLEASE!"

    I've been following CO2Stats for a while. They really do use rigorous analytics and vetted renewable energy. I once saw a talk by one of the founders that was pretty convincing, and they couldn't get their impressive client list without something more than marketing.
