Our widget displays current DeSmogBlog news. Plus, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s got a counter that shows the planetÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s estimated accumulated carbon footprint since January 1, 2007.
To be honest, I didn’t think it’d be all that successful. The news is cool, but as for the counter, who wants a depressing reminder of planetary degradation on their desktop?
Of course, I’ll never be able to replicate that feat. Who knows why our widget got chosen? Maybe there’s a sandal-wearing environmentalist running Apple’s widget library? The odds favour it.
Speaking of environmentalism, check out this skewering of the US Senate’s absurd new ethanol legislation.
