If you allow me to blunty borrow a quote:

„Below are the average carbon footprints of different emails:

An average spam email: 0.3 g CO2e (carbon dioxide equivalent)

A standard email: 4 g CO2e

An email with “long and tiresome attachments”: 50 g CO2e“

Not sure if the numbers are correct, but I recently heard about that on the local radio too.
