Literally the king of the stinking hippies

King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden is the ultimate hippie. He inherited great wealth and achieved manhood in the 1960s -- a time of peace and love, unless you were one of the people killed by tanks in Czechoslovakia. But at age 69, he is no longer into free love. He is into saving the environment from carbon dioxide. Of course, without CO2, you cannot have trees to hug, but why let science interfere with his feelings?

From the London Daily Mail:
The King of Sweden has called for a ban on baths to help save the environment.
King Carl XVI Gustaf, who once had a reputation as a lothario and is now a staunch environmentalist, said he realised how much water and energy they used when he was recently staying somewhere without a shower.
The 69-year-old ‘green king’ told Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet: ‘It hit me how much water and energy it used.
‘I thought “I can’t believe I’m having to do this”. I felt quite ashamed.’
Apparently in jest, he added: ‘We should ban all baths.’
The Swedish head of state said he now drives an eco-friendly hybrid car, turning around his lifelong reputation as a ‘petrolhead’.
‘When I drive into town, it’s on electricity,’ he said.
Much like the Prince Charles’s overhaul of Highgrove House with ‘eco toilets’, the Swedish king’s residence has been made greener with environmentally-friendly heating and low-energy lightbulbs.
The green king is merely another emperor showing off his new clothes. Al Gore, Prince Chuck, Barry O -- they all are emperors in new clothes. And if you do not see their clothes, then you are stupid. It's science


  1. According to Wikipedia, the typical Swede uses 16 MWh of electricity per year, twice the amount that's consumed by the average continental European and a f*ing 9!!!! times the amount of electricity I use each year. While most of Sweden's electricity is generated via nuclear and hydro sources, rather than fossil fuels, if the King is that concerned about saving the world, perhaps he should ask his subjects to stop heating their homes in order to cut down their gluttonous use of electricity. After his people are turned into popsicles, then maybe he can lecture the rest of us about real conservation.

  2. I wonder if his residence(s) are as 'earth friendly' as Al Snores?
    These frauds wear me out, but at the same time make me feel better about myself.

  3. We can see right thru his "science".
