?

Yeah thats what I was wondering also. 

> > >  Jeff Bozo  going to space { tourism } instead of improving biological life ---and the ecological systems that support them--- here on Earth > > >

>>>>>>> end date for 15 billion humans on Earth, 2232 approximately { terminal STOP here }

Then he lays it out clearly, and thanks all the amazon workers who paid for excesses into space tourism.  Sorry to be so crude but Beso's goes into my head and always comes out Bozo.

Maybe Bozo could build us a better solar, wind, electric bus that creates hydrogen.  Nah, much easier to just build rockets to start space tourism for the rich.

it shows that electric buses fail
You haven’t read a word I’ve said.

Everything fails early on, that’s how we learn and use that knowledge to improve things so those failures are not repeated. Why is this so difficult for you?

Actually, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos announced a broad plan to fight climate change, including meeting the Paris climate agreement 10 years early, which will make the company carbon neutral by 2040.
As part of this pledge to fight climate change, Bezos announced Amazon will purchase 100,000 electric vans. These vehicles will begin making deliveries in 2021 and all 100,000 will be deployed by 2024, Bezos said.
The vans will come from the electric vehicle company Rivian.

With things such as mechanical equipment and technology, the expectation these days is that such things have been thoroughly tested prior to release  into the public domain. 

You wouldn't expect Boeing to not test it's new equipment before you went on vacation, would you?

Ah the plane's failing, but not to worry at least the problem will sorted for next time....KBOOOOOOM.

Hey FLA, I get it.  Kudo's to  Beso's side of Bozo.

On the one side my ego would love to go to space for 10 minutes.  I feel guilty about taking open sea-water cruise not once but three times, cause I knew how non-enviromentally in considerate those cheapo cruises are.  Ergo my ego ----to sail the-seven-seas---  over shot my ecological concerns.

Its just that I think people of his stature ---super-rich--- should be a greater aid and spokesman for Earths ecological systems that sustain humanity, are going sour at faster and faster pace.  Following LINK lists 8 ways humanity could go extinct.

You know that FLRW is the Friedmann–Lemaître–Robertson–Walker metric, don't you?

If your expectation is infallibility then you do not understand the nature of science. No product created by human beings will ever not be subject to possible failure. Like I said, failure is how we learn and how we improve things. I do not understand what is so difficult about that.

Nor do I understand what is so difficult to grasp about the concept of prior testing.

And I have no such expectations of infallibility

What one does expect though, is  some  guarantee of durability.


As per example....Air liners will and do fail....But one expects that such planes have undergone a high level of  testing prior to going into service.


And it's reasonable to expect a bus to last longer than four years.

No, should I? The first two sound familiar. Maybe mth and physics.  The other two Evangilist, movie actor from 50's and my neighbor name is Walker.

I never said it wasn’t reasonable. If you are actually following the thread you are commenting on you would know that the point I am making is in response to the OP’s claim that electric vehicles are not viable. The fact that a fleet of buses failed is not an argument to support that claim. That’s all.

My assumption was that the O.P  was actually a dig at the Democrats. Rather than a real  concern for ongoing bus technology.

But we all make sporadic miscalculations of judgement.
