Eco-Friendly Death Machines

Arms maker British Aerospace (BAE) says that it is making new products that reduce collateral damage. Well, I’m glad somebody is thinking about ecosystem health. For example, there are lead-free bullets. These are great because after they slice through the tissue of a human being, they don’t contaminate the environment with lead. And then there are decomposing landmines which rot away after a time. Sheesh! One wonders what all that noise about a landmine ban was all about! Now here’s a good idea: weapons sans carcinogens. Although such hardware may reduce your body to its constituent molecules, you don’t have to worry about getting cancer! And there are even energy-saving ideas for weapons.

The wonders of modern technology never cease to amaze. What will they think of next?
