Python's carbon guilt


Python advocates might want to organize their thoughts on
this subject before their bosses spring the suggestion:

>From https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2020/10/we-re-part-problem-astronomers-confront-their-role-and-vulnerability-climate-change :

    . . . Astronomers should also abandon popular programming languages
    such as Python in favor of efficient compiled languages. Languages
    such as Fortran and C++, Zwart calculates, are more than 100 times
    more carbon efficient than Python because they require fewer
    operations.
