Ecosia, Earthle, Znout, Greenspec and Ecocho. No these words aren’t Esperanto gone mad, they are only five of the dozens of environmentally friendly internet search engines I’ve come across recently. We may not think about it when we type a search term into the web (and if you work for a research consultancy you’ll be doing this countless times a day) but search engines are run by massive power-hungry server networks. Take Google, for example, which has a 70% market share and gets hundreds of millions of queries a day. According to several online sources a Google search query consumes as much energy as an 11-watt light bulb does in one hour.
What is this Green Search Engine? This search engine is only indexing Eco, Environmental or Green focussed web sites. Therefore if you want to quickly find Eco and Environmentally related facts and information, then this eco search engine is ideal. Will the Green Search Engine find what I'm looking for? Yes, as long as its Eco, Environmental or Green related. Also the combination of 'human intelligence' as to what sites make up this index, with the built in ranking algorithms, should result in good 'signal to noise' ratio on the results; i.e. no sites are included which are 'spammy' or uninformative.
