#1 Revealed: the environmental impact of Google searches01-11-2009, 10:46 AM
Oh for Christ sakes...this is just friggen stupid.
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.”May the FORCE be with you!

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.

Where they get their information, I bet they googled itThe 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.
It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

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.
May the FORCE be with you!

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.
