This depends on the TV, how it was manufactured, how it is shipped, and even how much it is used. If you’re going to buy and LCD TV, and you care about the carbon footprint, you should see if the company has disclosed this information. Companies who are really energy conscious will do this. For instance, Auo has received carbon footprint confirmation on its latest LCD TV, and the results suggest this TV uses 30% less energy than others.
A mid-size LCD TV will put off about 473 pounds of carbon emissions per year with 6.5 hours of use, plus an extra 10 or so a year from standby. So you’re looking at close to 500 pounds of carbon a year from an LCD.
