Green Search Engine

I jacked this from the ecogeek blog.

Web 3.0 is still a new concept, but a new search engine called Truevert wants ecogeeks to be the first to benefit from it.

Truevert, as an example of Web 3.0, utilizes smart browsing, where the search engine learns the meaning of words through context to improve searches. Truevert has learned words in a green context so that all searches are done from an environmental point of view. If you're searching for the word "solar," the engine knows you mean solar energy, not just anything having to do with the sun.

Other green search engines exist, but Truevert is different because it's not just scouring green websites; it's using the learned context to search all of the web, allowing for more thorough results.

For those of us who are constantly looking for green information, this could be a real asset and time saver.
