An argument that the internet should be globally speed-limited, to force more efficient usage of current bandwidth and reduce the overall energy consumption.

I don't think the section about renewable energy is that sound, but it's an interesting point of view. As someone who has to browse over dreadful connections at times you can definitely see the way websites have expanded with useless features and styling as average connection speed increases. Amateur radio websites and textboards are good alternatives to the modern internet at these times.
