And we don't talk that much about this down side, it is all about the crazy intelligence behind and the speculation around.
The question is: can we afford a remarkable piece of engineering that is not viable for the planet?

Thank you for your answer :-)

And one more question: Can we not think of decent for the environment as a pretty unmovable constraint in adoption of this kind of technology. Moving off of old standards is one thing, but we have a choice now for our future about this kind of thing.

We work with constraints all the time in software, and it's a great thing for problem solving. We lift the constraints and we stop caring.
