#TIL that, due to the power of scale, just a few kb in #code reduction can result in thousands of kg in #carbon emissions reduction.
Specifically, @danny reduced the MailChimp for Wordpress plugin by 10kb, preventing 59,000 kg of CO2 per month according to calculations.
Time to start making #greenwebsites?
@badrihippo @danny ok but how many of us have our code running on 2 million+ different websites😂
@tomosaigon @danny then optimise by more kB!!
On a more serious note, I guess we can't all be *that* efficient but maybe every little bit counts? No reason the average web page should be in the MBs when it was still in kBs a few years ago ⚖
@badrihippo @danny alternatively, we all need to write more popular software 🙃
@tomosaigon @danny that too 😁
