Google - The Face of Evil
Google pulled an NBC.
Google users in the United States will notice today that we "turned the lights out" on the Google.com homepage as a gesture to raise awareness of a worldwide energy conservation effort called Earth Hour. As to why we don't do this permanently - it saves no energy; modern displays use the same amount of power regardless of what they display.If there's one thing I don't hear enough about, it's energy conservation. Actually, there are two things so obscure, so overlooked in our society in the year 2008, that I fear they may disappear entirely if not attended to every moment - energy conservation and global warming. Thank you, Google, for bringing neglected, but important, ideas to our attention.
Google is about as self-righteous as entities get. They're also in bed with the monstrous regime in China - you know the guys, trying to kill as many Tibetans as possible before they cause a big embarrassment at the Olympic Games? Yeah. Those guys. So when Google pulls a stunt like this, I have to stop my eyes from rolling out of their sockets.
Here's an idea - let's invent some sort of extremely energy-efficient way to utilize the power created by radioactive decay, and then build a bunch of new facilities to use that energy and solve this bogus energy crisis forever!
Oh, another thing. "Global warming" is now "global climate change." I'm sure you know that and know why that is - the Earth is being rather discourteous and not actually getting warmer at the approved rate. Whatever is happening has to be blamed, somehow, on people; thus, "global climate change." I think that this is a bad rhetorical move. The Earth's climate is the product of a number of factors, domestic and foreign (terrestrial and extraterrestrial). Those factors always change, even if only a little at a time; thus, the climate always changes. Now imagine that the Earth's climate were to be exactly the same one year as the previous year. Well, that is unnatural - and thus, a result of human intervention. But the term "global climate change" will not cover such a phenomenon - a phenomenon of global climate stasis. I propose a new term to cover all human-created climate crises: "climate." That way, when it's too hot, cold, wet, dry, snowy, icy, foggy, hazy, clear, muggy, or even when the weather is perfect in every way, you can rest assured that nature would not be this way if not for our intervention.
We...are pretty darn powerful, huh?
