After 39 years of teaching history, I am reminded of the movie "Jurassic Park." In the first movie, Dr. Ian Malcolm, played by Jeff Goldblum, after finding out that "dinosaurs" are being cloned remarks, "Yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not you could, they didn't stop to think if they should."
It makes me think, that before you drill a well a mile under the ocean, you might want to find a way to plug it.
In both cases, the driving factor was $$$.
