"Dirty" in the "here and now" isn't always as dirty as some might like to think from their academic, ivory tower romantic loft.

Just remember that when it's your water that's contaminated or when we need a wasted dump in the Hammer. Remember what water used to be like by the steel plants 30 yrs ago?

There is a balance alpha and yes, sometimes things like Walkerton, Flint or oil spills can happen. Even if quite controlled environments like hospitals, problems occur -- http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-cond ... c-20202389

But you are romanticizing once again rather than being in the real "now and real". Utopia is great but think in the real, for now.

And again I repeat, there are fathers and mothers out there trying to feed their families that might work in an industry that doesn't fit with your worldview. I respectfully will say respect that.

Not sustainable without government funding which is clearly why its not efficient.

You may as well have the government pay people to ride bikes to create energy.

Imagine how many jobs that would create

Well that didn't take long even with the best engineers in the world. :lol:

Once ballyhooed as the technology of the future bearing the promise of economic revival in Germany, solar equipment manufacturing has crumbled and gone the way of dinosaurs, all in a matter of a decade. So rapidly can economic evolution send subsidized industries into extinction.

And with all the excitement of solar power here in the West, guess what they predict?:

...in other news, seems faulty construction and poor planning has caused water to breech the entrance of the Doomsday Seed Vault.

R&W, why blame a poorly designed structure when you can just blame global warming? Engineers and building planners don't like negative news about their constructions. :)

Seems odd that a "doomsday" vault wasn't watertight. Oops! Must've been a government-run project.

In all seriousness, though, I'm glad the seeds are fine . . . which raises the question: why is this a story if the seeds are fine? Who would have something to gain by creating headlines about a "doomsday" device being breached?

So Pat do you believe in global warming or just global change?
