Search Engine battle Global Warming
An Ecosia search engine was launched on Monday 7th Dec. Christian
Kroll and his Berlin-based company developed the search tool.The tool
is counting on the world's fascination with the Internet to help save
Brazilian rainforests and battle global warming. It is able to save up
to 2 square meters of rain forest every time you start searching
A brain child of "green-minded friends" in Berlin, ecosia.org is powered
by Bing and Yahoo! search technology but gives at least 80 percent of
its revenue to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to protect rainforests.
Servers for the Ecosia search engine are able to work on green
electricity. A user has to install it only once but engine notifies you how
much of the rainforest your web searching stores.
Ecosia added that each search on Google generates as much CO2
as a light bulb creates in one hour.
A World Wide Fund spokesman underlined that a lot of things can be
done in case a user switches his search engine to a greener one. He
also said that a user is able to defend about 2,000 square meters of
rainforest every year if he uses Ecosia. In case 1% of Internet users
all over the world utilizes Ecosia for their Web searches it will be
possible to keep rain forest area as big as Switzerland each year.
