The latest environmental disaster - Google

Sorry guys, to do the first global warming horror story of 2009, but this was a bit alarming. It seems that Google searches use up an incredible amount of energy. Like pretty much everything we do in the modern world.

Hmm, good rebuttal. This stuff is very difficult. It's true - doing a search on Google far less energy intensive than going to the local library to check something. But of course, we never used to do that. We just got by without - something the world isn't really able to come to terms with.
