Sometimes a little kernel of truth cuts through the marketing.. I was reading Slashdot tonight and noticed an advert for Canada: Get Your Business Online, a 'free web site' promotion by Google, Rogers and a number of other large media and internet corporations here in Canada.
..and I had a nice laugh when I clicked on 'Success Stories' and got a blank 500 error page (pictured above, slightly altered). True enough.
The reputable journalists at the non-religious Christian Science Monitor [about] have published a new article entitled Carbon Offsets May Ease Eco-Guilt, but not Global Warming. We agree and said the same thing when we introduced our new directly wind-powered Green Web Hosting.
From the article:
A forest was supposed to be here, inhaling carbon dioxide. But the fields are as empty as the promises of the carbon offsets that promoters said would help negate global warming with thousands of new trees near this Hungarian village.
We're very happy to announce that our web sites are now directly powered by wind energy. CartaNova is built around sustainable principles - and we required web hosting to match.
After some searching we were excited to strike up a new business relationship with Canvas Dreams in Portland, Oregon. Our new server(s) reside in a secure data center powered by Renewable Energy initiatives including the Biglow Canyon Wind Farm. [video]
