So it’s “earth hour” and I would just like to state for the record that I turned every electrical device I own ON at 8 pm tonight and I’ll be leaving them on for a hell of a lot longer than an hour. Somebody has to keep the electrical company in business while the tree huggers sit in the dark beating their bongo drums.
And major kudos to Google for chipping in to earth hour… boy, changing the background color of the site really must have saved a lot of electricity. If Google is serious about “saving the planet”, how bout they put their money where their mouth is and TURN OFF the tens of thousands of computers powering their site?!?!? I can see the internal Google meeting… “Yeah, good idea – oh wait, that would cost us advertising revenue… hmm, let’s just change the color of the site so we can pretend to give a crap!”. Please spare me.
