** A [[WellIntentionedExtremist fanatical but well-meaning environmentalist organization]] does everything it can to 'save' the environment by destroying all the polluting factories and power stations. They fail to take into account the vacuum that will result from the sudden disappearance of these things from societies built around them, and not given enough time to 'wean' themselves off of them. The result is starvation, pain and misery: the environmentalists [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone realizes they’ve done something horrible.]] Or, for a more cynical approach, [[KnightTemplar they don’t even care]].
