    yeah, what threw me off was...why do they have cattle, do they even use beef?

    It's funny for me, too, because in the early 90s I personally boycotted Burger King because at the time they were the most known chain raising beef on rainforest that had been clear cut for it....making it worse, land like that will only sustain cattle for so long before they have to move them, meaning clear cutting yet another bunch of rainforest.

    My oh my, what a shocker: the fossil fuel industry loves the Trump Administration (and supports it to the tune of many millions). But of course they get nothing in return....

    Add in the heat wave that has spread from the Arctic Circle to greenland, Iceland and europe, I don't see how climate change is true. Baghad Iraq had a 125 temp the other day.

    I hate to inflict a slow death on any living organism, let's just nuke the whole earth and put paid on the war against environment.

    I'm not against space exploration....especially things they're doing on the ISS
    But had we spent the billions we've spent going to the moon, sending satellites to see the rings of Saturn, looking at colonizing Mars, and all that......and used that money to reduce and correct our impact here...we wouldn't be needing those Star Trek explorations.

    Beam me out Scotty!

    That's a seperate issue tho.

    I agree with your sentiment, but studying Mars specifically could be well worth it. I feel like one of these planets has some sort of insane metal or something that could potentially be a game changer for mankind.

    I've always felt the same about this country's exploration of space. It's neat and it's interesting but how has it actually advanced our society in a way that is anything close to worth the money invested in this kinda stuff?

    Well, this is the 21st century and I suppose we're both wrong:

    Never refer to a person as “it” or “he-she”. These are offensive slurs used against trans and gender non-conforming individuals.

    The space race developed out of the nuclear arms race, when I grew up with the Cuban missile crisis, the ducking under our desk, practicing going into bomb shelters it was a real threat. Practice civil defense warning horns /sirens going off. Add the Viet Nam war where we escalated a lot of new war plans and systems after the war. This race started in the 50's.

    The highway systems we have today was developed because Eisenhower never wanted to have problems with materiel movement in a time of war again ( lots of issues in WWII). Before the highways system most national freight moved on trains.


    A lot of the technology we use today evolved from the space race and the arms race, maybe some of it would have been developed anyway but some of the technology and materials weren't needed on earth. Would we have cellular networks if we didn't have an accurate space delivery system? Microwave ovens?

    Would PC's be as fast or software as robust if we didn't need to solve these massive math problems? We did our first Cellular One job in 1992, for payment on a change order they traded us a a bag phone and two brick size phones.
    It was just a keypad and a speaker. I think we paid .79 cents a minute.

    Our first engineering HP 9000 workstation came with 4 megs of ram and a 15 meg HD (25k). The software we used reps told us we would never need more ram. A year later I paid $2,995.00 for 1 MEG of ram I needed.

    The 1964 worlds fair in NY had all kinds of futuristic devices from phones with screens to flying cars.

    I don't think its as simple a dollar spent here would have been better if the dollar was spent somewhere else.

    A dollar to a school or hospital or improving education is completely different than a dollar to a manufacturer which back in the 70-90s a dollar to manufacturing resulted in 3 to 4x dollars being spent locally which both have a different impact than just giving someone a dollar in benefits.

    Those are the next decisions don't develop certain new technology and put the money some where else.

    How come nobody talks about population growth as part of the environmental problem anymore?
