Online porn is damaging the environment.

I was reading in the paper this morning that streaming online porn produces as much CO2 as the whole of Belgium. Researchers found that all online videos emit 300 tonnes of carbon each year, and a third of this comes from videos streamed on ‘one handed websites’.

Now I’d imagine that there are some real heavy users of such material in AH. Real experts in the art of onanism. As part of the green agenda is anyone willing to moderate, or indeed cease, their consumption of such material?

A Google search is equivalent to boiling a kettle. So how bad for the environment is your post saying something else is bad for the environment?

We should just ban the Internet and then the environment will be fine.

How amazing is Belgium only emitting less than 100 tonnes of carbon dioxide? That is less than a small housing estate here
