They can F right off

I know that some of my appliances are not efficient. All the white goods are fine. My film watching device is a CRT projector, taking up about 600W, but it's not used anywhere near as often as anyone with an efficient new telly, so overall I actually win.

My main computer has a number of monitors, including one CRT one at the moment, but the environmental cost of replacing this inefficient old CRT monitor, and less efficient GPUs with modern alternatives is higher than keeping it on. That doesn't resolve the power demand, of course, or help the economy, but it is kinder to the planet as a whole. Also, it's much better to my wallet...
