It DOES take energy to make paper. In fact, it takes 20 watts to make one
sheet of virgin paper from raw materials. Multiply that by 500 sheet in a
ream and your up to 10 kilowatts.

Let's see. According to manufacturer's specs, my monitor takes 150 watts. If
we're talking about an X-terminal, we might expect a little more (no access to
one, so I can't say for sure) so let's call it 200 watts. So one ream of paper
would run an X-terminal for about 4 days.

Have fun,

In God we trust; all others must provide data.
