Facebook Users Push for Renewable Energy

Tens of thousands of Facebook users recently established a new Guiness World Record for the most comments to a Facebook post in 24 hours. The eco-conscious commenters joined with Greenpeace to call on the social network to begin powering services with renewable energy instead of coal and nuclear power.

The numerous comments will be displayed on an LED screen outside Facebook's California office, encouraging the company to meet Greenpeace's Earth Day challenge to announce a plan to phase out its use of coal power over the next decade.
