Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber is a fairly successful singer-songwriter.
The music video for his song "Baby" is the most viewed video on youtube, with 500 million hits.
So how much time have people spent watching it?
3 minutes, 45 seconds per view.
Almost 4 thousand years.
To watch a video and listen to music, an average computer uses about 280 watts every hour.
In the United States, where most of the views come from, 1 pound of carbon dioxide is created for every kilowatt used.
Almost 10 million pounds of carbon dioxide have been created to watch this single video.

Pretty crazy. I don't really get the haters, if you don't like his music don't listen to it. At least it's not half as shitty as today's hip hop.

Bieber needs to be stopped, he is killing the environment.

 
At 29 May 2011 at 11:35 , Blogger Jammer said...

Actually Justin is providing carbon dioxide for plants. No plants we die.

Hey there, Admin! It's wonderful to make your acquaintance! Thanks for stopping by my blog, and leaving such positive comments! They made my weekend

I've taken the liberty of adding your site to my list of inspiring blogs...I've read a few of your posts and am amazed at some of the stats you discuss here! As a dyscalculic, I need to be able to experience numbers in a more concrete manner in order to truly grasp what they mean...and you do a good job of making the numbers accessible to someone like me!

In terms of Justin Bieber, I never realized just how much valuable time is wasted with mindless ephemera (can you tell I'm NOT a fan?)! Thanks again!

 
At 29 May 2011 at 12:23 , Blogger Anonwadi said...

bieber is responsible for global warming. :O
Great find!

 
At 29 May 2011 at 12:52 , Blogger sporktar said...

I'm sure he would have a lot less views if so many people didn't hate him.

 
At 29 May 2011 at 13:11 , Anonymous Fortune said...

Another reason to hate the Bieber

 
At 29 May 2011 at 13:30 , Blogger Rob said...

Beiber is ruining the world :O

 
At 29 May 2011 at 13:48 , Blogger m.m. said...

I guess being so polarizing has only helped his popularity.

 
At 29 May 2011 at 14:05 , Anonymous fpotd said...

What a waste.

 
At 29 May 2011 at 14:06 , Blogger Bart said...

At 29 May 2011 at 14:14 , Blogger dalexus said...

greenpeace should deal with him

 
At 29 May 2011 at 14:17 , Blogger NinoBlanco said...

Just another reason why Justin Baber = anti-christ.

 
At 30 May 2011 at 15:51 , Blogger Claude said...

Most of those views he gets are from people who don't like him anyway.

 
At 1 June 2011 at 00:33 , Blogger ovais said...

Hahahaha.

Okay, I don't hate either Justin Bieber or Rebecca Black, because they're kids who're making money singing songs while the rest of us with horrible voices would never do something like that :p
