The stimulus is saying (and here I am going to radically simplify it) that if we get some good from something, we might just ignore the bad stuff. Could be true of a toxic relationship, or a job, or an environmental policy.
The answer and the stimulus don't have to match exact meanings. It's just that the right answer needs to provide a rule of some sort that would help make the argument be a little better. And we do "fail to consider" the things that we ignore, even if ignoring and failing to consider are not the same thing. That is, I can fail to consider something without having ignored it, but for sure if I ignore it I must also fail to consider it! If I considered it, I wouldn't be ignoring it, would I?
If we accept the rule in answer A, then it makes the argument a little better. If people tend to ignore those objectionable consequences, then it is no wonder that some environmentalists might fail to consider the harm done by spacecraft that are having some beneficial effects!
