Goofiest Global Warming Claim Yet

I realize I'm going out on a limb with the title to this post as the global warming alarmists have said some real nutty stuff. Regardless, I'm confident that the article I'm linking to is far beyond past claims. Here's the link. Here is a snippet of the insanity:
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.

Sure, it's not a lot on its own — but add up all of the more than one billion daily Google searches, throw in 60 million Facebook status updates each day, 50 million daily tweets and 250 billion emails per day, and you're making a serious dent in some Greenland glaciers.

No, this was not pulled from or other parody site. The kook who wrote this drivel, Alex Roslin is actually a paid journalist who has won journalism awards. Only good thing is he is Canadian so he (hopefully) doesn't vote in our elections.
