Oh for Christ sakes...this is just friggen stupid. (http://technology.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/tech_and_web/article5489134.ece)



Performing two Google searches from a desktop computer can generate about the same amount of carbon dioxide as boiling a kettle for a cup of tea, according to new research.

While millions of people tap into Google without considering the environment, a typical search generates about 7g of CO2 Boiling a kettle generates about 15g. “Google operates huge data centres around the world that consume a great deal of power,” said Alex Wissner-Gross, a Harvard University physicist whose research on the environmental impact of computing is due out soon. “A Google search has a definite environmental impact.”


Kiss my ass carbon boy!:mad:

The earth is now on the brink of entering another Ice Age, according to a large and compelling body of evidence from within the field of climate science. Many sources of data which provide our knowledge base of long-term climate change indicate that the warm, twelve thousand year-long Holocene period will rather soon be coming to an end, and then the earth will return to Ice Age conditions for the next 100,000 years.

Click Google! Click it as if your life depended on it!

OMG djones....



The AGW theory is based on data that is drawn from a ridiculously narrow span of time and it demonstrates a wanton disregard for the ‘big picture’ of long-term climate change. The data from paleoclimatology, including ice cores, sea sediments, geology, paleobotany and zoology, indicate that we are on the verge of entering another Ice Age, and the data also shows that severe and lasting climate change can occur within only a few years. While concern over the dubious threat of Anthropogenic Global Warming continues to distract the attention of people throughout the world, the very real threat of the approaching and inevitable Ice Age, which will render large parts of the Northern Hemisphere uninhabitable, is being foolishly ignored.


Please, someone give AlBore a Google link to this ASAP!!!!:eek:

Thats why I've been laughing my ass off the last few years about this whole AGW scare. Global Cooling is the real threat. The funny part is, that we can't do a damn thing to stop it. We try to heat the atmopshere up, and it'll just accelerate it with melting the ice caps and cooling the oceans.

I don't think we'll be seeing anything any time soon though. We're still talking change on the scale of thousands of years, not tens of years.

OH NOES!!!!!! Would these libtards get pissed off at me if I planted a bunch of trees that released more CO2 than my computer?

I'll bet to them there's "evil" CO2 and "good" CO2, nevermind that CO2 = CO2 = CO2 =CO2 no matter the source.

*Napoleon Dynamite voice* Freakin' IDIOTS!

Lol trees take in CO2 and release oxygen.:rolleyes:

I dont know what your saying lol...

But what would make them mad is to invent backyard oil refineries. Just put any type of oil into the machine and out comes gasoline! Better yet, put trees into the machine and it will create crude oil that you will then put into the machine again to make it gasoline.

Sorry - I meant more trees to suck up the CO2 set off from all these Google searches.

Who knew we were killing the environment by wanting to gain information :rolleyes:

A theory only - I wonder if the libtards created this because Google was making too much money.... Maybe they think Google's stock will tank and need Government help....

Hmmmm....

BTW - 6 inches of snow on the ground. Global warming, my ass.
