Kudos to Google [Reposted from Facebook]

Location: Google Earth

Today, I typed in Google.com, and what I saw was a pitch black background, different from their normal home page. And on the page they said “We’ve turned the lights out. Now it’s your turn”. This is their advertising for an energy saving campaign called “Earth Hour”, which happens today, March 29th between 8 and 9pm, where everyone is encouraged to save energy by turning off their lights.

Please check out their description at: http://www.google.com/intl/en/earthhour/

Or go straight to the source at: http://www.earthhour.org/

Good for them. This is one of the most, if not the most used website in the world, and they are trying to promote good causes, rather than cluttering their page with advertising and pop culture “news” headlines (like some other sites.. not to mention any… though the initials of one of them are the same as the initials for the phrase “Midgets Sneezing Nearby“).

Okay. That’s it. My public service announcement for the day…
