University of Chicago receives mystery package addressed to one Henry (Indiana) Jones Jr.University of Chicago receives mystery package addressed to one Henry (Indiana) Jones Jr.

Want to know how much CO2 an online CNN article produces?Want to know how much CO2 an online CNN article produces?

...depending on how quickly you read, around 80, perhaps even 100 milligrams of C02 have been released. And in the several minutes it will take you to get to the end of this story, the number of milligrams of greenhouse gas emitted could be several thousand, if not more.
