Interesting article that is fairly mustachian.  The reader's comments are not too favorable.

The comments on this are absolutely awful. Half of it is weirdly out of nowhere attacks on everyone not right wing, and the other half that seems to be that the only virtue in life is continuing to work not smarter but merely harder. Apparently you're only valuable as a human if you're constantly toiling away.

Pretty crazy anyone would attack that.  Even if you don't believe in global warming, why would you want to work harder than necessary just to create more waste?
