Eco-friendly search engine

Post by webmeist » Sun Jul 28, 2019 12:22 am

Hi.
I use mint and just found out about a search engine that actually plants trees.
Just thought you all might be interested in adding it to the distribution.
I was able to add it to firefox though.
Thanks a lot.

Headlines are always made to draw attention ( and to sell ads ), but when I read this article it does say the following which contradicts the headline:
But the researchers say the fertilisation effect diminishes over time.

They warn the positives of CO2 are likely to be outweighed by the negatives.
I support this great idea of using a search engine to do good for the environment. Millions of dollars have already been donated to support the preservation of the Amazon forest for example, And those millions of dollars originated from the users simply using this search engine. Great positive spirit! Would love to see this search engine as one of the possible choices to choose from in the Firefox preferences.
