Reducing the carbon footprint of millions of websites, 20 kB of JavaScript at a time

If you are in the fortunate position, where your code is running on millions of websites, in my humble opinion it would be really silly to not follow what Danny has been doing here to reduce the carbon footprint of each website your code runs on:

Just last week I reduced global emissions by an estimated 59.000 kg CO2 per month by removing a 20 kB JavaScript dependency in Mailchimp for WordPress. There’s no way I can have that kind of effect in other areas of my life.
