Correction for Streaming Media’s Environmental Impact
In Table 1 of the published article, due to a transcription error, one line in the streaming carbon footprint calculator is mistaken. It should read “× 0.0007 metric tons of CO2 (Environmental Protection Agency 2020),” not “× 0.007 metric tons of CO2 (Environmental Protection Agency 2020).” While correcting this mistake, we are also adding a calculation in kilograms of CO2e, to facilitate smaller calculations, and noting that the carbon footprint is measured in kilograms or metric tons of CO2 and other greenhouse gases.
The article has been corrected accordingly.
The corrected Table 1 is shown below.
