Unfortunately, CIOs and other execs just see the numbers on a spreadsheet and don't take the costs of outages that you can't control into account.

You're just pulling that statement out of your ass. Most people who run large companies aren't stupid, and I'm sure that many of them do take into consideration the costs of outages.

Here we go, endless posts about how it's all down to pure willpower and entirely the fault of the individual.

Hey, if you know of an example where mass was spontaneously created without the addition of energy, it's vitally important that you tell somebody. Physicists everywhere need to know if there's a place in our universe where the law of conservation of mass doesn't apply (in general relativity, of course).

Class warfare has nothing to do with it, you thick shit. The wealthy run the large companies, which in turn own the governments (at least in the US), who make the decisions not to do anything about climate change, and also to spew utter horseshit like, "There's nothing we can do." Regular people aren't the ones clamoring to do nothing about climate change.

It's time for the alarmist side to stop pretending there are any policy choices on the table to prevent the warming they are predicting.

What the *fuck* are you talking about? There's plenty of stuff that can be done. The only reason that they're not being done is that the wealthy would have to foot the bill, and they don't want to.

Spending lots of money on PC hardware is pretty silly, as far as I'm concerned. There's more refurbished/used hardware that one could shake a stick at and it's absurdly cheap. Buying expensive PC hardware is like buying really expensive disposable pens: It's a waste of money, usually.
