What makes a green Internet search engine better than, for example, Google?



  1. 0 Votes

    Green internet search engines are better in that the sponsor company somehow alleviates the energy usage and carbon emission of search engines. It takes a lot of energy total to when a query is made. For example, Blackle reduces energy used by making the search pages black and saving energy by reducing pixel brightness. Another example is Znout, where the company actually audits energy usage at the end of every month and purchases carbon certificates according to the amount of energy used, thereby offsetting carbon emissions.
