@brandon Which is why i said based on the average power plant output? Come on man, we're talking averages, you can't go "but specifics." Logic fallacy yellow card.

"Me doing the thing is okay" doesn't change how many people get their energy from non-renewables, that you're moving the overton window of consumer needs toward higher power-consumption, etc.

@brandon Don't get defensive just because I posed a question about your energy use. I wonder what the difference is - you went from "that's a nonsense question" to "that's a nonsense question" but no it's really straight-forward: what's the difference in average co2 output to run the computer at idle.


@brandon I actually didn't even ask about YOUR energy use, you alluded to that. I just asked about the machine's use. (Sorry, I'm done now.)
