Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
This is not about nuclear tests! This is about practical real-world detonations, not tests!
Some countries may use a "practical real-world detonation" as a cover for a nuclear test. A country like North Korea could set off some bombs to test/demonstrate their nuclear capability and claim it was for mining or something. Kind of like how their recent missile test was supposedly for the entirely peaceful purpose of a satellite launch.
But can't someone do something about this, what about negotiating with the Chinese to make them toughen down on these people. There must be more options than "war" and "do nothing"
The parent isn't suggesting that we "do nothing". It suggests that we do SOMETHING, but to take an approach that doesn't involve "war". Or something extreme like a coup.
I don't see how a game like this can compete with something like Quake Live. Quake Live (still in beta) is free and has comparable graphics and gameplay. Yet it already has a much larger community, more polish, and runs more smoothly.
I understand that it is difficult for an open source game to have the same playerbase and polish as a professionally developed, ad-supported game. But at the very least Nexuiz should run more smoothly and should differentiate itself from other games that have already been released.
I'd say that a better open-source game might be Tremulous. Runs much more smoothly on my computer, and I often want to play it because its gameplay is different from other games I already have. Perhaps that's why there have always been more Tremulous players than Nexuiz players in my area.
Moreover, the methane will produce carbon dioxide on burning, and the oxides of nitrogen are either greenhouse gases or toxic. TFA might be glossing over a couple of things. Processing waste is a good thing, but no magic bullet.
I think the whole point is that putting the waste in a landfill and getting extra power off the grid produces MORE greenhoues gases than disposing of waste/generating power using the gasification device. Still, shouldn't TFA still mention that the process still DOES produce pollution?
