Google goes dark?

One environmental organization is proposing that Google switch its screen background from white to black. The logic behind this is that white pixels require more energy to light up and so the company estimates a savings 3,000 megawatt hours per year from the change. That's $75,000 in energy savings a year, which seems like a drop in the bucket, until you start thinking about extending this black background plan all the Anna Kournikova fansites on the Web, and then you're looking at some serious savings.

Thanks to Sonali for the pass-along.
