GOOgle or CO2-gle

One Google search produces about 0.2 g of CO2.

But since you hardly get an answer from one search, a typical search session produces about the same amount of CO2Β as does boiling a tea kettle.

Google handles about 1 billion search queries per day, which amounts toΒ some 200 tons of CO2Β per day.
