Google Uses More Power than Salt Lake City: http://bit.ly/nBIBcY

That means that we the users are using more power than Salt Lake City for searching, emailing, Google Plus-ing, photo sharing and page hosting.

This revelation raises questions about how much energy Facebook and Twitter and MySpace are using through our use — not to mention WordPress (Hi!).

Greenpeace has been pressuring Facebook to commit to using cleaner sources of energy in its Unfriend Coal campaign.

And I suppose it is up to we the users to decide whether we need to be using so much energy on these services.
