Environment: Paper magazines better on carbon than websites?

On the enviro blog Gristmill David Roberts takes on Wired Magazine Editor,Chris Anderson, who states that paper mags are better on carbon than websites. “The claim is mostly based on the fact that by cutting down (sustainably managed) trees and burying them in landfills, paper magazines sequester carbon. There are, however, no numbers offered to back this up. Yet Anderson seems quite defensive about it in comments.
Peculiar.”
