I agree with this, but the piece seems to have fizzled out at the end.
A bi-partisan bill has been introduced in the Senate to make it a national goal (and to extend ISS to 2030). More thoughts after I read the draft legislation.
From recent experience, Nancy Rommelmann has a guide to surviving it.
I have to confess that I’m not even familiar with the music of many of these, but I’m glad to see Springsteen on the list.
It’s 45 years old, and it couldn’t be made today.
We rewatched it a few weeks ago, and it is kind of amazing how politically incorrect it was.
I’ve never heard anything about the show (including trailers) that have motivated me to want to see it at all, let alone pay big bucks for it. Now, it turns out that it’s historically BS. I know, I’m shocked, too.
I don’t know whether this guy’s ideas for carbon capture make economic sense or not, but this I see a lot of this sort of nonsense:
You quote the Jesuit philosopher Thomas Berry, who writes about our being inseparable from the Earth. That’s not trending in Silicon Valley the way, say, terraforming Mars is.
What the hell do we do when we’ve trashed the hell out of Earth? We escape to another planet! That appears to be the attitude from the tech-os. Well, I find that hugely irresponsible. Why waste billions on going to Mars when we should be putting that into nourishing Earth? It’s your classic mechanical mind gone to the extreme, and I find it abhorrent from people that are meant to be intelligent. We are an integral part of Earth and until we start nurturing her, we are going to go down the gurgler. Maybe a few of those tech-os will end up on a spaceship, but the rest of us won’t.
I don’t know anyone who wants to escape to another planet because we’ve trashed the earth.
“Go f**k yourself.” A righteous rant from Larry Correia.
