Google has gone green with Blackle .
Blackle was created by Google as their contribution to help save energy. PC monitors requiring more energy to produce a White background than a black background, so by using Blackle as your home page every time you load up your browser you will save a small amount of energy.
It is estimated that blackle could save 750 Mega watts of electricity per year based on 200 million queries per day.
The site keeps a running total of how much energy has been saved by using it compared to the original Google.

I like using the Carbon Neutral Search Engine it uses Google Custom Search but offsets a minimum of 100g of CO2 per search, nice little extra for free.
