  •  I both agree and disagree. (0+ / 0-)

    If the plan is to stay on this planet then obviously we need to live and produce in sustainable ways. If the plan is to spread to the stars, then a certain amount of unsustainability could be tolerated. I know we could not migrate the whole population to other worlds but we could import depleted raw materials from space and engineer our way out of some environmental consequences, though not all. Most likely scenario of course, involves doom and gloom.

    •  Gotta say, off-planet is a pipe dream (0+ / 0-)

      We're stuck here, together.

      Gotta work it out here somehow; it'll "work out" somehow in any case. If we colonize off-planet in the near future, that's bonus.

      Government and laws are the agreement we all make to secure everyone's freedom.
