A VERY Inconvenient Truth: Al Gore, Google, and CO2
By: John Lillpop
Who would have imagined that Al Gore, self-appointed climate cop for planet Earth, is actually an anti-green capitalist personally responsible for hideous releases of carbon dioxide into the precious air that our children and grandchildren are supposed to breathe?
That would be the same Al Gore who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007. According to the Nobel Citation (1), “His strong commitment, reflected in political activity, lectures, films and books, has strengthened the struggle against climate change.”
That would also be the same Al Gore who waddled onto a stage in Hollywood a couple of years ago to accept an Oscar for producing a “documentary” to alert the world to the imminent danger of climate change.
And, of course, that is the same Gore who proudly boasted on national television that it was he who invented the Internet.
As it turns out, Al Gore should surrender his Oscar and Nobel Peace Prize as soon as possible because a new scientific study from Harvard University contends that “google” searches of the Internet are a source of C02.
As reported in PC World (2), in part:
“Two Google searches produce the same amount of CO2 as bringing water to a boil on your stovetop, according to research from Harvard University. Google claims that the Harvard study is flawed. The Harvard study was first published in British newspaper The Sunday Times.
“According to the report just carrying out a typical search through Google can generate about 7 grams of carbon dioxide. Alex Wissner-Gross, the Harvard University professor that authored the report, says that even just browsing a basic Website can generate about 0.002g of CO2 for every second it is viewed. Sites with complex video can bring even more CO2 in the atmosphere, somewhere around 0.2g per second.”
How deliciously ironic that the same enviro-nazis who use Google searches to research and document dubious global warming conditions are, by virtue of their methodology, actually raising CO2 levels in the air!
