It seems like this WordPress plugin is not a joke, although it took me a while to figure that out. CO2Stats claims it will detect how much electricity is being used to power your site, and “offset” the emissions by investing in renewable energy projects. Who pays for these investments?

Our offsets are funded by advertising sponsors who are selected because they are committed to making the Internet more environmentally friendly.

Is “green” blogging the next trend? It’s so hard to keep up.
