Living Green, One Tip at a Time - (a weekly feature)

I'm going to change it up a little from the last few weeks.

Living Green, One Tip at a Time -  

Tip #  9 - "Blackle"

Next time you need to "Google" something, use "Blackle" saves energy!!  
 Blackle is a website powered by Google Custom Search  and aims to save energy by displaying a black background and using grayish-white font color for search results. 
The concept behind Blackle is that computer monitors can be made to use less energy by displaying much darker colors. This idea was first brought to the attention of Efap Media by a blog post, which estimated that Google could save 750 megawatt hours a year by utilizing it for CRT screens. 
The homepage of Blackle provides a count of the number of watt hours claimed to have been saved.  Check it out at

I've heard of it before, but I've always heard of people being skeptical about it. Does that really save energy?
