21-08-2009 Save energy while you search the web

Google is now the world's most popular home page and few of us think twice about clicking on it when we want to search. Did you know it was possible to save energy while you surf?
You can by using Blackle. Blackle is an energy saving search engine, powered by Google Search. According to research, monitors use more energy to display white screens than dark screens so Heap Media created Blackle to remind us all of the need to take small steps in our everyday lives, to save energy. Blackle came from a blog post in 2007 which suggested that a "Black Google" would be a way to save energy. To date Blackle has saved over 1,400,300.100 mega watts of energy and the counter on their website continues to grow. However small the contribution from each user, Blackle encourages us to remember it all counts in the end and aims to save energy "one click at a time".
