This is badly flawed logic. If a can't get to market without
endangering life or property, it shouldn't get to market.

Come again?

So what you're saying is, we should NEVER have brought the automobile to market?

(I only half jest; I'm sure had the Sierra Club been in existence in the form it is now, I'm sure Henry Ford would have been stopped dead in his tracks, hit by so many lawsuits that his mass-production scheme would never have seen the light of day).
