Google This!



Easy one. When and why was this Google home page used?

Most of you got it. The page was to create awareness for Earth Hour, which took place on 29th March. This, however, has nothing to do with Blackle.com or any other website which claims to save energy by using a black screen.

Refined answer to my actual answer - Homepage as a gesture to raise awareness of a worldwide energy conservation effort called Earth Hour,
"We have turned the lights out. its Your turn - Earth hour"

All the countries that celebrated Earth Hour, their respective Google searches "switched off" its lights to commemorate the day. March 29th

Earth Day
used not really to conserve power.. LCD screens dont work on this theory. The black backgound was used just to highlight the sudden change in the webpage in order to attract people to the concept of Earth Day
