This morning I went to www.google.com like I do every morning and was greeted with this.
Normally I’m not one to jump on the bandwagon but this does seem like a really small thing to do that would actually make a large impact.
This is the general idea behind Earth Hour.
On Saturday, March 29, 2008, Earth Hour invites people around the world to turn off their lights for one hour – from 8:00pm to 9:00pm in their local time zone. On this day, cities around the world, including Copenhagen, Chicago, Melbourne, Dubai, and Tel Aviv, will hold events to acknowledge their commitment to energy conservation.
If everyone did something little like this it may actually make a big difference.
Another possibility is this is just the front for the robot overlords looking to catch humanity off guard one hour at a time so they can start their world domination and mass extinction of the human race. Sky-Net Lives!
According to Harper’s Magazine, Google is an “energy glutton.” Check out the blueprint of their server farm in The Dalles, Oregon, home of “some of the cheapest electricity in North America.” It’s powered not by magic pixie dust (my longtime theory), but by the Columbia River. Every time you search Google Images for pre-pregnancy Britney pics, God kills a kitten and Google kills a salmon.
