Comment on Black holes in Swizterland may destroy the earth

The chances of going outside right now and getting hit in the head by a frozen turd falling from the sky are greater than the chance the LHC will destroy the earth. Just because something is possible doesn't mean there is anywhere near a real chance of it happening. There are heaps of articles online dispelling those fears.

Hey if it does happen, it's not like you'll notice.

As for providing the world with free renewable energy, there is no science stopping us from doing that. It's possible. You'll find that the reasons it isn't happening boil down to politics & economics. Money & power. :/
