How a black background can help save the world

Apparently using a black Background on your blog decreases the watt consumption of your computer by around 30% ( I have done that with my own blog and humbly ask permission to do it to this one as well. Below is a trascript of the news item where I found this:

According to Ecoiron, "an all white web page uses about 74 watts to display, while an all black page uses only 59 watts".

This is quite significant since a normal computer desktop has a 250-550W power supply, so reducing as much as we can is important, even if it is just under 10% of the total power supply.
