Google's Earth Hour (Vanity)
Google ^ | March 29, 2008 | Dr,Syn

Posted on 03/29/2008 6:49:29 PM PDT by Dr.Syn

All day today Google has been pushing an Earth Hour agenda:

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.

Given our company's commitment to environmental awareness and energy efficiency, we strongly support the Earth Hour campaign, and have darkened our homepage today to help spread awareness of what we hope will be a highly successful global event.

I got sick of their Spitzeresque hypocrisy and emailed them the following:

Your Earth Hour nonsense finally made me change my default search engine from Google to Dogpile.

You are such hypocrites...your founders Larry Page and Serge Brin fly around in a private Boeing 767...and you have the balls to talk about Earth Hour.

I guess you think everbody should sacrifice to keep the rich liberal elites airborne.

Maybe I’ll e-mail to explain that their sanctimony annoyed me so much that turned all my lights on for that hour.

Sure... I'd like my city to be dark for an hour after sunset. Mind-bogglingly stupid.

I was out all evening, but left the lights on as usual for the puppies. AND the lighted Easter Extravaganza lit up our hill all night tonight. Nine foot Easter Bunny and lights strung around all the trees.....it looks lovely!

You could ask them if they shut down their worldwide network of server farms to help save the Earth.

Oh. Wait. That's what NON-hypocrites would do.

Please let them know what you think .

I think it's a free search engine that works great.

I could care less about their ideology.

I agree. I am here in the West, and so we have not hit 8:00, but I am planning to turn all the lights on.

I just went and turned a few lights on. Even though I keep lights out that aren’t in use - for frugality’s sake. In fact, I just made some coffee, and plan on using my computer ALL NIGHT. Just for them.

Sweet, aren’t I?! ;-)

Made that change last year. Never regretted it.

The bright worklight goes on, outside, illuminating the clouds, in one hour.

All those who think global warming is real and is man made, turn your lights off. All those who think it's a fraud and a hoax, leave your lights on.

Let's see, most people left their lights on. I guess Algore can go away now!

I wonder if google shut down their data centers at 8PM and left them down for an hour. One of their data centers probably uses as much power as a small town. lol

I don’t much care about their ideology. They’re in business to make money, and that means jumping on every bandwagon that comes down the street.

I do mind that their black background is distracting with those bright Google letters dancing around. If they were serious, they would have done the word “Google” in black, too.
