In certain circumstances, flaring is still the safest and best way to render an explosive, invisible gas non-hazardous. Modern detectors are ok, but they depend upon being in the right place at the right time. Since gas is invisible, you can never be 100% sure if or where explosive amounts are present.

I would rather risk some occasional minor air pollution released to the atmosphere if it prevents having to call in a life-flight helicopter to rush a man to the hospital who just received 3rd degree burns all over from an explosion.
