The carbon footprint from frequent/regular domestic air travel is an ecological nightmare, not even counting the lead poisoning aspect. It should absolutely not be handwaved away in a statement like "unless you're willing to get rid [of it]". We have to get rid of it if we want to survive

Lead poisoning is the one thing you don't have to worry about with jet and turbo prop planes.
You don't have to get rid of domestic air travel, you have to get rid of fossil fuels.

Are you talking about electric passenger planes? I'm down for this

What's the lead poisoning aspect of regular domestic air travel? Jet engines don't burn leaded gas.

And the carbon footprint from domestic air travel is a rounding error. 87% of anthropogenic CO2 emissions are from burning fossil fuels. 22% of that 87% is from transportation. Of that 22% of 87%, 11% is aviation. That's a bit over 2% of human CO2 emissions. If that's an "ecological nightmare," what do you consider coal power? Or marine shipping?

While it may have been "2%" at one point, it's growing at a very fast clip and will account for a very sizable chunk of 'the budget'. of course, those other examples are ecological nightmares as well

Ah yes I forgot about the wisdom of the 'one thing at a time' approach to environmental justice

The simplest explanation is obviously that protestors poured concrete molds into coffee cups, and let them set overnight so that they could hurl them at police

100% chance that dude is an ancient poo poo head trump supporter, but, it does really highlight how god awful the American car based infrastructure is and how we should engineer out the potential for the need for this dude to do poo poo like this.

That way, when he still does it, I can hate him harder and more purely.

There's a bridge kinda like this that spans the mouth of the Columbia River and it has similar problems. If people did this rascal blockade weekly no doubt they would add a pedestrian option within a year

It was most likely intentional. If you don't ride bikes in the US you can probably assume you have no idea what the gently caress you're talking about. We do something like 40,000 traffic deaths per year. American exceptionalism baby

edit: to expand, our culture, road infrastructure, and justice system create the perfect storm of just absolutely loving over everyone not in a car.

Clearly no one deserves to get hit by a truck lol, I hope that they caught that driver.

Also bicyclists who don't follow traffic laws are assholes because I sure don't want to hit anyone when driving.

Always important to indict murdering psychopaths and jerk cyclists in the same sentence

it used to be worse but as more and more conservative people leave SA, the car-culture knee jerk reaction thing becomes less severe. You should have seen GBS in the early 2000's when riding bikes came up


the real OSHA is the infrastructure depicted in the video. 8 Lane state highways with traffic going 50mph in both directions, and somehow pedestrians and people who ride bikes are supposed to get through this poo poo uninjured

There probably isn't an easier tool to gently caress up and cut yourself with than using a flathead screwdriver for anything but flat head hardware

Boston Dynamics is working hard to end this thread. When there are no more jobs there won't be a need for OSHA.

If Boston Dynamics has its way wrt lucrative DoD contracts, we will have plenty of videos of robots maiming people

“You should not become hysteric and afraid of your kitchen sponge now,” said Dr. Egert in our original interview. Even sterile environments can make a person ill, he added. “But if you’re already ill or have ill people at home, you should be more careful.”

Lol.
I just worked forever in food service and I'm cool with using a cloth so I can start over fresh everyday or two it's no big deal you do you. I love this thread and I'm just a lurker in it usually

ATV's seem pretty risky. It's like everyone who does it regularly for fun ends up with some traumatic injury at some point.

edit: if you are dutifully hauling sap, carcasses or shitloads of tools out into/from the middle of nowhere, that's another story

I'd be seriously worried about oxygen content in a confined space like that below ground, even before you cram it full of people

just give yourself 6 hours and make sure you bring a map itll be fine! It's Utah's MOST popular cave! what could go wrong!?
