Abstract
Much sustainable HCI design research hopes to achieve net
reductions in greenhouse gas emissions via persuasive or
more efficient technologies. This research has shown promis-
ing results. However, the proxies generally used in evaluation
(e.g. less energy or water consumption) may be poor indica-
tors of such systems' effect on emissions because of effects
outside the scope of analysis; in particular, direct and indirect
