What has a virtual world got to do with CO2 emissions? Yes. Electricity. Computers are getting increasingly more powerful and thus, using increasingly more power. Cleanbits (Dutch website) is a initiative that enables owners of websites to buy off their CO2 emissions. Trees are planted to compensate for the electricity your webserver is using, resulting in a climate neutral website. Soon there won't be any trees left that aren't compensating for some webserver, racing car, or jet holiday?

What is your view on the coronavirus?
Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.Comment
