Google Earth Hour: Feel Good While Doing Nothing
Last week, Google turned
its page black
to raise awareness of energy conservation.
My first thought turned to hypocrisy. Google uses millions of kilowatt hours
powering massive server farms so we can look for Kim Kardashian videos.
Turns out, there was a deeper irony. Apparently, it takes more electricity
to power a black screen than a light one.
