Why is it easier in Svalbard to use lethal than non-lethal means of protection against polar bears???
I don't know, I wanted to bring my bear spray (large pepper spray, supposedly very effective against grizzly bears, not sure it has been tested on polar) when I went there. but I looked up it was forbidden, it surprised me. But yes one are naturally supposed to try to scare it off with gun, but not sure polar bear so scared of guns, I think bear spray better, and possibly even safer. But naturally I follow the law of the Kingdom, so did not bring bear spray.

when walking in some bear land in USA I only had bear spray. But then they are quite friendly over there.

may be bear sprays got allowed this year? I don't know...

"Bear spray is a very effective deterrent when used properly. In a 2008 review of bear attacks in Alaska from 1985–2006, Smith et al. found that bear spray stopped a bear's "undesirable behavior" in 92% of cases. Further, 98% of persons using bear spray in close-range encounters escaped uninjured." wiki

"No bear spray has ever been reported to kill a bear. It is our belief that widespread use of bear spray will promote human safety and bear conservation.”
Should that be "98% of persons reporting using bear spray in close-range encounters escaped uninjured"?

yes some survivorship bias possibly.



"Was it tested on bi-polar bears?"

no, they are the most dangerous I think, but only 50% of the time.

A guy worth $20bln pays a $20mln fee. I'm pretty sure that if I broke any UK security regulation, the resulting fee would be more than 1/1000 of my net worth ;-)

"is elon musk for real?"

yes he is for real and his electric cars outsold Mercedes-Benz in the US for the first time

And BMW Is Next To Be Toppled

despite all their solar power, german car producers have been very slow at understanding the future is in electrons! Well they forgot (timing is "everything")

"It’s taken just eight years for Elon Musk’s upstart electric startup to topple the company that invented the car 132 years ago."

If german car producers not change their product line they could even be toppled by Kalashnikov cars!

Can Germany survive the ‘iPhone moment’ for cars?

and what about Brexit-cars? well the new electric Jag looks quite nice.
