    Wait...deleting electronic information creates CO2...? Did I read that right? What?

    Nido, agreed not a very clearly written article... I assume (since it was never explicitly spelt out in the article), that they mean additional, wasted computer time - hence electricity- wading through spam.

    No you didn`t read it right, its not the deleting that generates the most C02.

    Me too. I thought we could have stopped production of military-grade meat and allowed everyone to continue driving their Hummers.

    youre forgetting the fact that the only reason spam causes co2 is becuase it requires servers to send them and they would be on anyway so its sort of subjective (phony even)

    @s0rd3dvis1on, while that is true you`ve missed a few points, a server processing more information will consume more energy.
    Networks also consume more energy when sending data.

    If you have a laptop test it, have it fully charged and leave it doing nothing but background processing, then do the same but run a benchmarking tool until in both scenarios the battery is dead.
    See which one lasts the longest.

    More processing space needed for servers, more time wasted, and more frustration. Let`s just kill those who spread spam.

    At first i thought they were speaking of the food too.

    Man... I thought this was about Spam food, and I had a real good comment to make about how it stacks up to other production companies... What a waste...

    On a more relevant note, this is actually hilarious. Just to think that all those e-mails in your junk with phrases and concepts from the darkest, most sick and twisted lost catacombs of the internet are doing more than irritating (or perhaps entertaining) you. They`re killing baby polar bears. Comedy, at it`s highest most profound form.

    Oh the idiocy. I`ve lost too many brain cells from reading comments.

    We must use ALgoreithims to find out how much CO2 is being produced!
