OK I stand corrected. Thank you.
Ebola is a bacteria. But AFAIK that's the basic idea, merge genes of different viruses to create better forms of smallpox. That's what the samples are for to be able to create vaccines.
I'm saying use it for vaccines against weapons not MAD.
I agree that GP's point is silly. Btt we probably would need smallpox and and smallpox research to construct a vaccine against a weaponized smallpox. I remember after 9/11 how scared everyone was about weaponized anthrax, but at least we understood most everything about how anthrax operates.
Good point about the 61.5. Absolutely changes things if there are different scales.
That's why I used an exponent.
Of course we should be reducing our dependency on fossil fuels. I fully support large investments in green technology. That's different than a 0 harm policy enforced imprisonment.
I agree with you. But that's the sort of balanced measure where we do a cost benefit analysis and see a decent improvement to the environment without having to inflict great harm (and arguably a benefit) on humans. Very different than the rhetoric of our needs don't matter.
Of course it wouldn't. But not "harming" the oceans or land i.e. not utilizing resources would be an extinction level event. All animals, humans included need to pull resources from those sources to live.
America's energy consumption per day per capita is over 3 barrels of oil. That's about 3.3b calories worth of energy per dy. What difference to that consumption does adding or subtracting human manual effort make?
All over the web. Those particular data: http://www.decibelcar.com/menu...
There is no reason we need to cost future generations. There are reasons we need to manage the land and water on this planet in a way advantageous to humanity to maintain our population and anything remotely approaching our standard of living.
Or howabout you attempt to make a realistic estimate rather than either 0 or infinity?
10^5.5 = 316,227
So I'm not sure where you are getting your numbers. I'm not sure what the falloff is in air pressure as you increase the size of an explosive. I'd expect a square root function (?) if someone knows they can solve that part.
210 dB 2.0 earthquake (sound force is the equivalent of holding a stick of dynamite).
235 dB 5.0 earthquake
248 dB atom bomb
310 dB loudest volcano that we know of (happened in 1883)
