What’s black, green, and eco-ridiculous all over?

1googearth.jpg I know you all heard about the gesture politics stunt known as “Earth Hour” over the weekend, in which countless eco-activists around the globe turned off their lights and recreated the Dark Ages to help “raise awareness” of the environment. Because, you know, there isn’t enough Awareness Raising about it–what with radical environmentalism being crammed down your kids’ throats and Al Gore everywhere and John McCain crusading against global warming, etc., etc., etc. Anyway, as many of you noticed, Google jumped on the bandwagon by turning its search page black.

The thing is, as tech bloggers have noted, it takes more energy to power black pages than white ones.

Yes, to raise awareness of the need to conserve energy, Google caused its users to use more energy than they normally would.

But hey: Google Cares.

Next up: Google apparently plans to help the enviros flood Capitol Hill with phone calls:

A group of environmental activists has enlisted Google to help flood the congressional switchboard with one million phone calls on Earth Day urging lawmakers to enact eco-friendly measures.

“We’re really excited about this because Congress keeps saying they don’t hear from the American public on climate change,” said Kathleen Rogers, president of Earth Day Network, which bills itself as an eco-activism group connecting some 17,000 organizations in 174 countries. “The [presidential] candidates are not being asked about climate change. Climate change is the biggest threat to humanity that we’ve ever faced.”

Rogers said her group is finalizing talks with Internet giant Google to coordinate online advertisements and other publicity measures in support of the calls. Details of the arrangement are still being worked out and are scheduled to be released on April 14…

Rogers said Earth Day Network is planning events in eight cities and has recruited 1,000 student volunteers on 1,000 college campuses across the country to celebrate Earth Day, which it calls “the largest secular civic event in the world.”

Secular? Hardly. These people belong to a cult–a cult that fewer and fewer sane public officials are willing to fight.

For sanity, check Sen. Jim Inhofe’s blog.

He’s an endangered species.
