Blogs and Global Warming

The hot debates surrounding search engines, logarithms and privacy
on the Internet
are only beginning, I think.

Will more surfers find it, as a result? Will adding it to
the listings increase electricity usage, as subtle links here ripple

These questions must be taxing the brains of philosophy students everywhere.
If they are not, the Planet, if not the air, is bound to get much hotter.
