"Switch your computers off"

I am not impressed about this advertisement in the Private Eye by the charity Christian Aid. Age old tactic of making you and I feel guilty, so you’ll donate to their now environmental cause.

How about getting the facts Christian Aid? Computers take about the same power as a light bulb yet provide essential services for this information age. I feel sorry for poor kids out there with parents who will probably berate their child’s computer usage.

I’m also amused about the similarities whilst browsing the Christian Aid website and the Guardian. I guess they copied the Guardian’s site design.

How opportunistic of Christian Aid.
