Call for a Green Facebook

Thousands of Facebook users  worldwide  are called upon to echo the call for a green Facebook as they attempt to establish a Guinness World Record for the most comments to a Facebook post in 24 hours. Greenpeace is appealing on the social networking tycoon to start powering FB services with renewable energy instead of coal and nuclear power.

The comments will be displayed on an LED screen located conspicuously outside Facebook's California office so as to encourage the company to meet Greenpeace’s Earth Day challenge to announce a plan that would phase out its use of coal power over the next decade.

“In places as diverse as Cairo and Madison, Wisconsin, Facebook is helping to foster activism and foment reform,” Greenpeace Campaigner Casey Harrell said. “Now Facebook needs to lead a new energy revolution by committing to phase out coal and power its transformative services with clean, safe renewable energy.”
