Helium Balloons and Blimps Should be Banned.

DrNRG
minddrag

Helium balloons, blimps, and other frivolous uses of helium should be banned / legally outlawed. Helium gas is so light that much of it escapes earth's atmosphere completely and goes off into outer space impossible to recover. Helium is not a renewable resource and cannot be economically synthesized. Synthesis involves hitting Lithium or Boron atoms with high velocity protons and this does not yield economically useful amounts. Some helium is generated from alpha particles from radioactive de...
