Do black homepages save Energy. Is black green?

There is a lot of talk about the concept of saving energy by changing colour to websites and people has began to set black search sites as homepages.

Climate changes makes us wonder what is ahead for us, and people began recycling. We all should do something about it.

There are many custom search pages on the internet that claim that using a black homepage will save a lot of energy. Some of those sites attract a lot of visitors who start testing such "innovation". Many of those sites use Google's custom search engine:
Blakcle is one of those sites using Google's custom search engine (I think Blackle sucks) and claims of millions of Watt hours saved. Other sites with a black background are Nowblack, Google blogspot, and Jabago.

To tell you the truth, black webpages do not save energy. Fact or fiction about the black websites saving energy, for some of us a black website looks more appealing. See what Google has to say about the mith of making the background color of your monitor screen black:
