Unproductive time wasting activities on Wikipedia waste energy as they lead to a higher server load. As a result, more carbon dioxide is emitted and it thus contributes to global warming. Per decree by Jimbo Wales, effective 06-01-2010 the editing history of each editor will include the carbon footprint of the editor. If the ratio of the carbon footprint to productive edits is too large, the editing privileges of the editor will be suspended until the editor has donated enough carbon credits to the Wikimedia Foundation as compensation.
