Black Google Would Save Energy

It is believed that an all white computer screen, such as the Google page, uses 74 watts to display, whereas a black screen consumes only 59 watts and so a black version of google, such as blackle.com would infact save energy! Sounds ok, apart from the eye strain doesn’t it? Well I’m not entirely sure I believe it though as surely this doesn’t apply to LCDs… not sure though, but the Wall Street Journal backs this up here.
Maybe its worth it.. but I think I’d rather not deal with the awkwardness of reading and save energy elsewhere…
