Santa’s Carbon Footprint

By | source: Dec 8th, 2011

Santa knows whether you’ve been naughty or nice, but he doesn’t know how much he’s hurting the environment. In one night, Santa uses as much carbon as Qatar does in one year! I like getting toys for Christmas, but I don’t think I need them that badly! Maybe we need to raise our standards on who makes the ‘nice’ list.

Not sure what else to say about this infographic. Santa’s a carbon glutton and needs to be put away. In this kind of economic recession we need to cut down on spending and we are wasting too much on Santa. Or maybe get him a hybrid sleigh?

Well I guess this infographic is a good exercise for thinking critically about our energy usage. Although I’m not sure where they got the statistics. But now you know to limit the amount of wrapping paper you use to help offset Santa’s ridiculous carbon usage. [Via]
