For those of you not in the know, today is Earth Day, a crowd-sourced holiday in which everyone is supposed to pause and think about how our daily lives are affecting the earth. This week Google, Apple and other tech giants have released statements, and held events to make their consumers more Earth conscious, and today coincidentally Google began selling its Nest smart thermostat on its Google Play Store.

Again, unless you have been living under a rock, you will recognize the Nest Thermostat as one of the early entries into the Internet of Things, and one of the first so-called intelligent thermostats to hit the market. Nest learns your heating and cooling schedule, and automatically adjust things to keep your home at the perfect temperature when you are home. Nest Thermostat owners can also make adjustments from their smartphone or tablet anywhere that has an internet connection. This allows users to turn the HVAC off while away and to turn it on before arriving home, and that saves a lot of money and lessens the owners carbon footprint.
