2 out of 135 space shuttle launches were catastrophic failures. What are you going to do when a shuttle full of nuclear waste explodes in the high atmosphere?
There was one case where someone used tricks and lies to "expose" the fact that he had flaming water in his faucet, which has been debunked.
You continue to sound like tobbacco cancer and AGW deniers.
There are hundreds of genuine cases of flammable water as a result of fracking. And lots of cases of illness.
Your question makes your assertion incorrect: a typical "green" person doesn't think in terms of "best alternative", but simply opposes whatever is being done since it will inevitably have some consequences.
You don't know any typical greens. Their debates on the balance of environmental harm of one alternative or another are far more sophisticated than yours. I know, I've attended some.
They shouldn't just get a free pass to kill endangered species any more than big oil etc
Neither bald eagles nor golden eagles are endangered. Nor will the become so given the modest numbers that get hit by turbine blades.
People? Like Soylent Green?
Hint: you're hinting at nothing.
If it was pure H2O you'd have a point. But it's not, and you don't.
You need to take a look at the very long list of hazardous chemicals they put in that H2O.
accused of, but never proven.
This is on the level of tobacco causes cancer denial, and global warming denial.
There are massive numbers of cases of fracking causing environmental damage. Willful denial by the fracking industry and it's supporters is not the same thing as "never proven".
It's the same as the Steve Jobs hate. A CEO identified with a product some people can't afford. The hatred is envy.
Lockable outdoor outlets have been available for decades.
Holding a phone in texting position and videoing position is a very different thing. If you video when in the texting position, you'd get video of the table or your lap.
With Google Glass, either would be a problem, since presumably sending a message requires talking at it.
So now it's not enough to want to do something good for the environment, we have to adopt a particular health lifestyle too?
Huh? How does the availability of both throttle and pedal assist cycles restrict your choice to only the healthy alternative? If you want to be able to not pedal, get a throttle control. If you want to get fitter, get pedal assist.
I'm with you completely. Choose whichever you want. Why the grumpiness?
Loaded trucks in a parking garage? Overstating much?
The complaint from the other user was seeing such extensions, not the danger of driving over them. It's quite a leap to imagine that someone is trailing an extension across an access road, such that other cars are driving over it.
Of course, in the unlikely event that someone is doing that, the correct response is to deal with it there and then. Not just see it, and clock it up mentally as something you are tired of.
Do you know how everything in the world works?
Pretty much. Over the years I've dismantled most things I didn't previously understand the workings of. And now with the internet, there's really no excuse for not knowing how things work, if you're an engineer.
Not expecting a cop to be an engineer. But expecting the cops to be able to investigate the contents of a Nissan Leaf Spec Sheet isn't too much. Heaven help them when there's a murder if they can't manage even that much investigation.
No problem at all in wearing a head cam and recording outside. So long as you don't get in someone's face to annoy them. Wearing a head-cam in most indoor spaces is a different matter. Huge difference.
And if you want to throw a punch over being recorded? Better be sure you really did get every device.
Sounds like you are quite a punchable person. If you think having a camera is going to protect you, you may well find you're mistaken. It's more of a provocation than a defence.
As the cops confirmed they'd given no permission, it was certainly petty theft.
