GASP!: Stop computing liberals, you're killing the Earth

Macintosh CaseYour Computer is Causing Global Warming |

Did you know that you're causing global warming just by reading this article on your computer screen?

Or that a medium-sized server has the same annual carbon footprint of an SUV that gets 15 miles to the gallon?

Well, shame on you for not being aware of just how harmful to the environment your laptop is, because according to an English environmental organization called Global Action Plan, the Information and Computer Technology industry is about to surpass the aviation industry in annual carbon dioxide emissions.

I kid you not.

Read the official account here. Actually, if you did the math, just about everything we do as modern humans uses energy derived from fossil fuels, so I suppose the only real solution is to digress to primitive times (especially since no alternative energy sources are acceptable--they're either inefficient or deemed "environmentally worse" than fossil fuels).
