If you happen to visit Google today, Saturday March 29, 2008, you will notice they have turned the lights out on their homepage, in an effort to raise awareness of a worldwide energy conservation effort called Earth Hour.

Although the adjustment to the color of Google’s front page doesn’t actually save any money, they are hoping more people will participate in a one hour “lights out” event from 8:00pm – 9:00pm on Saturday, 29 March 2008.

Hats off to Google for helping out a good cause and finally giving us a different view of their homepage… even if for only one day.
