My Blog is now Carbon Neutral

This is so cool.  By writing this post, and displaying this button in my sidebar, a tree has been planted in the Plumas National Forest for me.  

A typical blog emits about 8 lbs of carbon dioxide a year.  A tree absorbs about 11 lbs of carbon dioxide a year.  Now that's some math I can do!

And now my blog is carbon neutral!!

How on earth do they measure how many lbs of carbon dioxide a blog uses each year? The amount of energy it takes to download times the number of readers? LOL!
Have a great time during your homeschooling!

That's crazy! How did they figure that out? Is it actual or hypothetical or theoretical?! I will have to look into this!
