I did a post on Google and marketing back on 12/12/06 titled Marketing..... Good or Bad. Google always seems to amaze me not only in their search engine capabilities, but on how they just come up with the change of their logo. Especially when they want to get a message out there or show their support for certain observances or periods of time throughout the year.
Today was Earth Day which is observed on April 22nd, which marks the precise moment of the beginning of spring. I think there are many reasons why Earthday is mentioned in the Northern hemisphere. But we need to pay attention to it even more than ever because of how we abuse the land that we live on, in which the World population is growing at alarming rates every day. And in my opinion, we are ignoring the warning signs that could bring Earth to a crashing halt. Sure, more in likely not when we are alive and probably not during the time that are children grow up. But maybe during the time of our children's children?
Yes, there are different sides to the story. There are cons and pros. We have scientists that agree with Global warming and many that are against it. This will never change. But why not read up on it yourself, you be the judge. I did at one time and this is what I came up with. What's happening to the land around us........ Overall, even if you don't think it is as bad as advertised, we all can do the little things that will help in the long run.
Conclusion : What's interesting is that Google apparently has a good understanding of this and decided to change their logo for the time being. I wonder how long it will stay up this way. Just 1 day? 3 days? For exactly one week? What do you think? Do you think this is good marketing?
