Hysterics Claiming - Internet Causes Environmental Damage

Post Media News via the Montreal Gazzette .....

It's Saturday night, and you want to catch the latest summer blockbuster. You do a quick Google search to find the venue and right time, and off you go to enjoy some mindless fun.

Meanwhile, your Internet search has just helped kill the planet. Depending on how long you took and what sites you visited, your search caused the emission of one to 10 grams of carbon into the atmosphere, contributing to global warming.

First you have to believe that CO2 actually is a problem.... then if you are ignorant enough to think that using your computer forces large numbers of coal burning electrical plants to burn more coal ... then ... well .... you just have to "Believe!"
