If the internet was a country, it would be the 4th largest polluter.
Welcome to the World Wide Web, where a single website visit emits 1.76g of CO2 on average. This is due to the intense processing power required to load and deliver a page. With over 1.13 billion websites competing for attention and web pages full of data, it's no wonder that the internet guzzles up energy like a thirsty monster. If you add a sluggish website to the equation, you not only frustrate visitors but also add to energy waste, exhaust your server, and increase electronic waste.
