'Green' Arms the new killing trend

BRITISH arms manufacturer BAE Systems is designing "environmentally friendly" weapons, including "reduced lead" bullets, "reduced smoke" grenades and rockets with fewer toxins, The Sunday Times said.

Nice to see that BAE are considering the environment while they are kililng people

Well that's good.

I'm glad people/companies are doing something like this.

I mean true these things are meant to end life, but they don't
have to be made so there bad for the entire world.

while we are killing ppl, we should consider the safty of trees.... cuz apparently, trees are more important than ppl....

great logical thinking....

trees produce oxygen and a habitat for wildlife
trees dont hate
trees don,t maliciously kill or maim
trees live many hundreds of years longer than us
etc etc etc

So um.. yeah.. i would say they are FAR more important than us..

OK enough of this tree hugging crap but still true I,d say in an ecological sense

I don't really see the point of it. If all the humans are killed with environment friendly weapons(which I doubt strongly, but you never know), what good would trees do for billions of corpses.

Because without trees we'd die, and so would most of the rest of
the life on the planet.

Remember to these are weapons for war, not things to be used to
wipe out huge population centers.

Theres more here in the times link

their proposing to make warheads that make less noise to cut back on noise pollution
and there have been experiments to see if they can turn explosives into manure

I heard that when the bomb explodes, it fires out plant and tree seeds at high velocity which kills and is imbeded in the intended victim, after which the dead bodies are used by the seed as a "grow bag" leaving the area green and pleasant with less harm to the enviroment!

soz had to do it!!!!

Excellent bit of lateral-thinking there Kurokage!

I was thinking something along the idea of biodegradeable munitions, in particular, landmines. Whilst 'on the shelf' in its packaging in the armoury, the mine would last as long as current models, but once placed in the ground, would have a lifespan of 1-2 years before the explosive and casing degrade, rendering them harmless, and saving the lives of civilians who re-populate the former battle zones after the conflict has been resolved...a workable idea maybe?
