Re: Don't go to space til we sort out Earth
I would prefer we get in space sooner rather than later and start mining other resourses than the Earth.
Make mining on Earth a thing of the past and economically unviable by taxation or legislation.
I would hate to be stuck on spaceship Earth if the greedy sods are allowed to finish strip mining it.
Imagine being stuck at the bottom of a gravity well with no resources, having to mine trash piles for the refined metals, having to demolish housing to reclaim steel.
With exponential birth rates, disease, famines, will no-one think of the children and build us some colony world vessels.
