I posted some material on Mars travel, and now I have been vindicated in my humble opinion by the editorial in the New York Times no less. My point was that it is too expensive to send people to the far flung reaches of the galaxy when we are messing up our own home planet to the point of extinguishing whole species, and making our own human species mighty uncomfortable.
Now there is scientific evidence to back this up, and some feeling that the nut jobs who want the rest of us to foot the bill for that space flight are going to have to wake up to reality.
On a more hopeful level, we had a very successful Coastal Cleanup Day in California, and find that the younger generation is concerned about the trash that we are putting on our beaches and waterways. The Boy and Girl Scouts are always there to sift the sand for cig bnutts, and do their part in helping the environment.
Why don’t we do them a favor and spend more money on educating the masses on the dangers of global warming, global trashing, and wasteful space travel boondocks?
I can only hope.
