I think you haven't read all lines I wrote.
Like said, this are typical prejudices about americans and like all prejudices there are many people who think they are true.
And if someone asks me if his cpu can run all the time at max performance setting even if it does not need the computing power this surely is an attitude of energywaste.
Yes, india and china have started the use Much much more power than they used to use cause they started industrialization - america has no industry monopol - but still they use less power per person than the us (in fact, the us per person powerconsumption is in the top3 of all the world per person usage - hey, thats something to be really prowd of ...).
To stay at one level of powerconsumption is called stagnation and not innovation - and there are many fields where powersaving can be accomplished easily today.
And no, I don't hate america - like said before - but I don't love it anymore either (I used to, but a "democracy" that follows a nonvoted leader for years just can't be taken serious anymore - at least not by me).
It was fantastic to be in Florida during that "special" election and watching a trial with "totally uninvolved" judges (most of them nominated by the Bush senior) ruling that the us needed a president now and that recounting votes will not be done was great fun, especially in regard to the us keeping watch over elections in other parts of the world to guarantee democtratic elections.
Before that and the reelection of cowboy bush I would have loved to be an american, but with that, things changed. Not to speak of starting a war against the ruling of the UN - I still can't beleave that no empargo started against the us at that point, every other nation of the world would have seen consequences.
