    Yes I noticed. Please do be careful, do not stare directly at the fossil fuel zealot, do not make any taunting faces or provoke them. Consider them wild and respect their territory, and back away slowly.

    Hawaii wasn't shown. Maybe it's safe.

    Ah, I see Robert beat me to it. Maybe you should take the hint. (And get solar.)

    From the ICE cars are dangerous. - Page 5 thread:

    Apparently no injuries. But wonder how much toxic gases, particles and soot, and how much CO2 was generated by this one…

    Deepwater Horizon was a natural gas explosion

    Most people don't know that the Deepwater horizon spill started with a natural gas explosion.
    Many yearly deaths due to natural gas accidents (either pure natural gas wells, combined oil/gas exploration and natural gas pipeline).

    To be fair, I'm pretty sure the electrical network has its fair share of property damage and fatalities.

    But the electrical network is not something that ‘we’ as a civilization will be able to live without. Oil is not only dangerous. It’s also finite. And if 'we' insist on burning it, then who knows what will happen…
