Summary

Cloud Carbon is a Chrome Extension that calculates the carbon footprint created by your use of Facebook, YouTube, and Netflix. Each time you open a new tab in Chrome you'll see your stats as well as reference to how many gallons of gas you could have used.

Cloud computing allows us to have virtual selves, digital doppelgängers, but, because of the fossil fuels burnt in order to power the data centers which store our personal data, our digital selves have a very real-world impact.

Cloud Carbon was created over a 24 hour period for Art Hack Day 2015

I never realized streaming was so wasteful! Cancelled my Netflix subscription. I'll be driving to the store to buy physical copies of all the Movies and TV Shows I usually watch from now on. Save the planet!
