Environmental impact[edit]

Hi Johnson487682, thank you so much for showing your support and especially for taking the time to do these calculations! Do you think we should convert these numbers into the metric system? Kind regards, --Gnom (talk) Let's make Wikipedia green! 13:46, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

Fixed. Johnson487682 (talk) 21:50, 17 January 2017 (UTC)
Great, thank you. I'm wondering if we even need the imperial figures, but maybe we do. --Gnom (talk) Let's make Wikipedia green! 22:50, 17 January 2017 (UTC)
My cited source data (for amount of CO2 generated by each energy source) were in imperial units, so I kept them the same to show clear provenance of the numbers. Presumably, we will periodically update the energy usage of each data center as well as the % ratios of each utility company, and I want to make it easy and understandable for whomever is editing the table.

Very good point. Oh, the anti-metric cabal ;-) --Gnom (talk) Let's make Wikipedia green! 16:23, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
