Mother Jones has posted an article titled, "Are Email Attachments Bad for the Environment?"

Read it find out why, supposedly, "sending an email attachment of 4.7 megabytes—the equivalent of about 4 photos taken on a point-and-shoot digital camera—creates as much greenhouse gas as boiling your tea kettle 17.5 times."
