      ago, TreeHugger Mark Ontkush wrote a post on his blog EcoIron titled Black Google Would Save 750 Megawatt-hours a Year. The post lays out the following train of thought. "An all white web page uses about 74 watts to display, while an all black page uses only 59 watts." Google, which has a white background and gets about "200 million queries a day" could reduce global energy use by 750 Megawatt-hours a year by simply changing the color of its homepage to black. In response to this
      post a black version of Google emerged called Blackle.com . According to Blackle's homepage at publication time, 4,408.917 Watt hours have
      been saved by. Nice ideas. But how does the search measure up? Very well indeed. Give it a whirl yourself and star t saving energy one
      search at a time. :: Blackle.com I recommend you all to use this as your home page or default search engine. Kindly pass this on to people you know and spread the word. So here's your site: http://www.blackle.com/
