And that should probably be handled by the safety features of the car itself. If you don't have to be able to operate it, that could allow for a lot of fundamental improvements that make the occupant safe even in the case of accident. That makes the math a hell of a lot simpler. Plus, these would almost certainly be electric cars, which open up many other operational advantages.

Comment Re:Increased water scarcity (Score 2) 173

The problem probably isn't about the total amount of water, but rather, the distribution of it. Areas that have shortages of water would have more severe shortages.

As for why it would be a net bad thing, it would be that the changes happen faster than evolution can keep up. That might also include humans, or a large portion of our population.
