Earth Hour Problems at Bredbandsbolaget

A friend of mine works as tech support at Bredbandsbolaget during his studies. Bredbandsbolaget is one of Sweden’s biggest providers of high speed Internet. The other night, during Earth Hour, there was an opportunity for several employees to head home early. Since many customers shut down their electronics during this time, there was little work to do. My friend was glad he took the chance.

Apparently, the phones started ringing like crazy the second Earth Hour was over and then kept ringing. See, the people who were dumb enough to fall for the green propaganda were also dumb enough to not know how to plug their modems back in when the meaningless hour was over.

But hey, no one ever accused environmentalists of being smart.

As a side note, DN has an excellent article which states that Swedish electricity is 95% carbon free. So the morons are doing this completely without any logical reasoning, instead just bowing to some pathetic herd mentality. Good lord!

These people are like the second coming of communism, but twice as many and twice as dumb.
