Statistics

CA averages 25 deaths a year from Carbon Monoxide. CA has just mandated the spending of $100,000,000 in spending for CO detectors(10,000,000 homes at $10 a detector).

In the USA 2500 people die in fires a year, an additional 500 from Carbon Monoxide poisioning.

The US fire death rate is higher than most industrilized countries. Most other countries focus a larger percentage of their fire fighting dollars on fire education. American fire departments spend more on speed of response to fires and they do respond faster.

The information age is here.

Having lived in foreign countries for many years I found that their masonry construction is far less prone to fire than our wood construction.

Even the floor in the attic is concrete.

Floyd, I fully understand the joke aspect.

Radon: Yes, I have 2 Radon detectors (Electronic) in the house and guess what, they went off the scale immediately after the Mineral earthquake (We live 10 miles from the quake center)

The Radon guy was here Monday and will be back today and we will upgrade the Radon abatement system that is installed in the house.

Fire extinguishers: Yes

Here is the next big thing to hit the news: Every year at this time people start using their fire places and wood stoves and someone will vac out the ashes the day after using their household vac cleaner then put it in the closet and low and behold, it will burn the house down. Same thing applies to those kero heaters where someone puts gas in the thing.

So legal and available is just not enough? We must once again have our options narrowed by those who know better.
Adult responsibility is slowly dying, smothered by the loving embrace of government.
To paraphrase Oliver Twist...
Please Sir...I want some more regulation

And parents are no longer embarrassed or feel responsible for the bad behavior of their children.

Cool Cost of life and redundancy

$100,000,000? If we save only one life, it's worth it!

BTW: Every system and component necessary for flight on an airplane is redundant. I wonder why?

Back to the generators, a wet generator can cause you some health problems also.

Just send me $10,000,000 cash and let me protect myself from the horrors of carbon monoxide...
One life saved at only 10% of the cost!

Now I ain't calling you a liar - I'm just saying I don't believe you.
I think you are going to spend quite a bit of that $10,000,000 cash money on things that will shorten your life quite considerably and so your promise to save one life may not be entirely true.....

You digress, the $100,000,000 was "worth it" while only addressing carbon monoxide warning devices. The life saved there would most likely have more peccadillos than I, which are not addressed by the spending.
As I stated earlier.... "Legal and available is just not enough?"
According to the extant logic, the money in each case was only to address the one issue and as long as I don't die from CO poisoning I will have fullfilled the premise.
Of course My point was only to show the facetiousness of the premise while avoiding the censure, which would have certainly been brought on by a better argument. 'nuff sed!

The only way we'll have CO in our house is if my wife lights a candle (assuming that it doesn't set the house on fire but that's another issue). Our house is 100% electric including geothermal heating and cooling. Of course we could probably have an electrical fire.
