      Eco-terrorism. People didn’t like the environmental impact of this lift, but still, it’s not right to do that. I hope they find that guy and charge him or her lots of money.

        I’ve never fully understood, what is the true environmental impact of a lift like this? Not looking for a pro/con argument, just a factual assessment of the impact.
