I'm sure humans will completely kill off the earth before the sun does.
seems like yesterday
Humanity down the old Black Hole....
I would just like to build a NET ZERO house. I want to practice on my garage first.
People are going to lose their minds the first time a family is wiped out by an automated "driverless" car but the reality is that cars driven by people kill millions of people on our roads over time. If statistics show that driverless cars kill LESS people per mile driven than cars driven by people do ... then any logical person would say the risk is an acceptable one. Looking at the slide into gross mediocrity of driver skills in general over the last 10 years of the smart phone becoming as integrated in a persons life as walking is ... you don't think about the action of walking as a teenager/adult and today's drivers do not think about texting when they are driving IN TRAFFIC AT SPEED I can say my observations as a professional driver through long periods of my life has led me to a point where I will be much more relaxed surrounded by automated cars in traffic than I am with today's crop of morons behind the wheel. That sounds pretty damning I know but when a car goes by you at 70 mph just 2 feet away and the driver has their face in a smart phone and at least one hand trying to correct a text they want to send, while they wander across lane unaware of other traffic ... and you see this 3 times in a 15 mile commute ... you almost want to kill them before they kill you or your family.
I have no doubt that a computer will be able to drive a vehicle more safely than a human....someday.
I highly doubt we are there yet. It takes time to perform a longitudinal study.
I have been doing long commutes in the Dallas are for almost 23 years now. Declining skills are not obvious. What is obvious is that more and more people are willing to drive at speeds that would turn fender benders into fatal accidents, and more people are willing to attempt extremely risky maneuvers frequently.
Skills may have something to do with it, but the actual driving behavior indicates that many drivers just don't give even a tiny **** for the safety of others.
I just bought a new Tesla strat and while I was playing smoke on the water......
And to think that if you take a look at pictures of Woodstock, Monterey Pop or the Rainbow Gathering, you’ll see signs reading things like “save the earth” and people already knew that you have to take care of the planet.
We’re reaching 2020 and most people are still clueless about what exactly we oughta do.
Thought this was kinda interesting and on point to your post.
Man plans.... fate laughs.
Yeah, it’s basically chasing your own tail.
But of course, there are good things.
No doubt there;s always something good out there with change.
One of my neighbors, a techy nerd to the nth degree has a prius and rides a bicycle to work. Fine, good for him. Problem is in his firm opinion EVERYONE should ride a bike and have a hybrid, very matter of factly firm on this. Constantly attends city counsel meetings pushing for more bike lanes, car charging stations and all that.
Yet he recently bought a full size gas burning non hybrid mini van because it's easier to haul the family around.
I had to chuckle over this.
We just had a power outage of
1 1/2 days some areas up to 5
30 mile commute to work each way .
An electric car .
Time keeps on slippin’ into the future ..........
There is such a thing as a gas shortage or supply disruption. We had just a tiny one here in North Texas a few years back and everyone went ape dookie.
An electric vehicle could have supplied your home with power for a week
The new Tesla get 600 miles to a charge
All the good parking spaces are reserved for electric vehicles at my work; probably worth getting one just for that, lol
