Green Screen

Will this really help saving the planet?

I received this by email some time ago... Thanks MunMun
PS: Check their link on wikipedia

Here's an easy way to start saving the planet by helping to reduce your carbon foot-print...

If Google had a black screen, taking in account the huge number of page views, according to calculations, 750 mega watts/hour per year would be saved.

In response Google created a black version of its search engine, called Blackle (http://www.blackle.com), with the exact same functions as the white version, but obviously with lower energy consumption:

Help spread the word..... Use Blackle

Use this as your new search engine and save energy.

Yes actually, it'd help. A friend of mine told me before that their professor at university pointed this out. He said if Google had a black background, a lot of power would be saved. And it does make sense.

According to official google blog, No, this is not saving the planet. It does make sense, but experiments and detailed study said the contract.
