Note to Google: It's Not Easy Being Green

With yesterday’s lofty (some would say overly windy) announcement from Google that it is going to invest a bundle to try to make clean energy cheaper than coal use, we thought it was the perfect time to post this very funny video about a trio of roomies battling over how to go green, with one named Green turning into the Norman Bates of energy efficiency.

(It’s written and directed by Clea DuVall, whom you might have seen as an FBI agent on “Heroes,” who stars in it with Leisha Hailey of “The L Word” and Carla Gallo.)

My favorite line from Green about not contributing to paying the electric bill, which Larry Page might have said to Sergey Brin: “Oh, yeah, I’m not going to be able to cover your mass consumption of energy.”

Please see this disclosure related to me and Google.
