Addressing Climate Change: Where Should My Money Go?
« on: August 28, 2013, 05:17:40 PM »
This topic could include government money, taxes, and divestment, as well as personal spending.  But I’d like to share this fast-paced, 5-minute video.  It outlines what we know about climate change, what it’s costing us, and some places where we might invest.   A surprisingly cogent introduction to the topic -- from Yahoo Finance!

People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it.

Cross-posting this here:
More than 165,000 people have applied to join the (one way!) manned Martian colony effort envisioned by the non-profit Mars One Foundation.

“The organizers say the $6 billion cost for the first landing would be covered through reality-TV deals and merchandising, but they skirted pointed questions about the plan's financial feasibility.”

Should we continue our efforts to live off-planet, as we lose the ability to live on it?
