Is it good to read the newspaper online?
The green conscience: what is more environmentally friendly - online or print?
The fact that you want to satisfy your hunger for information in an ecologically sound way is commendable - but not using paper may not help the environment as much as you think. Under certain circumstances, the print version is even more environmentally friendly: namely if, like the average German reader, you spend more than half an hour reading it every day. Scientists at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm have calculated the ecological footprint of news consumption for online and print products:
If you only need ten minutes to grasp the news situation, you should do so online. This results in 14 kilos of CO2 annually, calculated from factors such as production, disposal and power consumption of the servers and users. Reading newspapers makes up twice as much. From half an hour of reading, paper is recommended: 30 minutes of online reading corresponds to around 35 kilos of CO2 per year. At least on the European average. In Sweden, where over 60 percent of electricity comes from hydropower, online reading always does the best. In Germany, on the other hand, where almost half of the electricity comes from coal-fired power plants - including ten of the 30 most climate-damaging plants in Europe according to WWF - the following applies: paper is the trump card.#Subjects
