Technology. It works, . .. .. .. .. .es.
all I see is a heavily edit text you stole from somewhere.
The ultimate in sourced links...THE BBC!
So what's the point of this? Are you just being an ass and making fun of people for trying to do something new and innovative that people like you wouldn't have the balls to undertake? I really don't see any other point to this thread.
With this sort of mindset towards new ways of doing things, the future is indeed auspicious.
well i think its kinda funny that a oil tanker saved a eco boat
I guess it would be the irony of it being saved by an oil tanker.
Edit: bigdog beat me to it you gotta admit its pretty funny though.
This story is NOT particularly damning to the "eco-boat".
Irony is indeed funny, provided that it isn't politically motivated.
So you anti-technology or what?
its like Cartman finding a bulldozer crew in latin america to save the schoolkids and teacher from the jungle
Although the irony is striking, I do have to say that the eco-boat was a very commenable effort.
And by the way, aren't solar and wind energy generators technology? It's moreso the size and scope of the boat that caused the mission to fail, not so much the green technology.
Yeah, which is what I don't get about the OP. Does it assume that eco means going primitive or does it think that technology sucks?
Eco-technology is cutting edge compared to diesel engines or whatever powers the traditional oil tanker. So cutting edge that many people still distrust it, which may or may not be good depending on the extent and circumstance. Going green certainly entails a revolutionary reduction in the expansion of consumption, but it also means coming up with new technology to help accommodate population growth and both to push the limits of the earth's capacity and to keep production within that capacity (i.e. sustainable).
Irony - I like it!
I endorse this post.
...this isn't irony.
The last I checked Environmentalism is way higher in the tech tree than the Steam Engine.
Let's just agree that whether it's an eco-sailboat or an oil-tanker, going out on the high-seas is awesome. (Unless, it's a cruise ship and you're not the captain or mega first class then it sucks)
No, not him, but it might be me!
You're the only one injecting politics in this.
Or unless your stuck on a damn flat bottom boat in rolling seas........... bend over to tie your boot & diarrhea your pants......... not so awesome.
