    Now that's an amazingly cool idea. Imagine the brightest engineering students from all over the world vying for a job there.

    We should offer to host it at an unnecessary army base in Hawaii.

    The International Space Station has already shown the world can work on complicated goals effectively.

      scientific research, maybe we can discover that the things that unite us as human beings are much more powerful than the things which divide us.

      Working together in this way, to find ways to save our planet from the worst impacts of climate disruption, I can think of no greater cause, nor greater human endeavor.

      In so many ways this is such a great development, putting aside the initial areas of research whether you agree with them or not, this has the potential to bypass the politics and the greed and come up with the best energy ideas with the lowest environmental impact.

      Those folks who are trying to get in the way of progress - let me tell you, I'm just getting started. I don't quit. I'm not tired; I'm just getting started.

        about whether humans can save their climate or not.

        Geologic time will eventually clean up after we blow it.

        The issue is, what kind of world do we want for the rest of humanity's time on this planet?

        +6 degrees centigrade  will be a living hell and that is the path we are on today.

        Working together in this way, to find ways to save our planet from the worst impacts of climate disruption, I can think of no greater cause, nor greater human endeavor.

        Further, with the messy economic entanglements between our countries it is particularly important that we be working with, not against each other in the coming years. This diary kills about 20 birds with one clean energy stone!
