Last night at dinner, I was enlighted to a new search engine by Google called ‘Blackle’. It is the same search engine – that is powered by Google  – but with a black background. Blackle was created  to remind us all of the need to take action in our everyday lives to save energy.  Blackle saves energy because the screen is predominantly black.  A proposed theory is that a black version of the Google search engine would save a fair bit of energy due to the popularity of the search engine – approximately 750 Megawatt-hours a Year.

Today, I set my search engine to Blackle. This way every time I load my Internet browser I will save a little bit of energy. Remember every bit counts!
