Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Many useful industries utilize potentially hazardous chemicals and substances, and are able to deal with them in a safe and reasonable way.

If you're designing a closed industrial plant, then full containment is possible 99.5% of the time. But in this case you're pumping chemicals into an unbounded geological matrix ("real world") that is only understood on a very general level.

The fact is that what we're experiencing right now is a top-down disaster. -Paul Krugman
