    Constellation or Climate Research?

    If you had to pick, which enterprise would you fund?

    The Constellation Program or climate research?

    Of course, I would choose space exploration, because I consider it vitally important to our long term prosperity and security.

    How about you?

    I'd choose climate research. We can't really afford to trash the planet we've got. And, unless we learn to live in a way that doesn't destroy our location, we'll trash the universe.

    How does climate research stop anyone from trashing the planet? You know "climate research" is just code for "anthropogenic global warming research", right?

    Damn! Climate research over space exploration!? Has the whole world gone mad?

    I do not believe in the man made global warming fairy tale that enviro-religious zealots try to espouse but I can see climate research being useful if we ever find out how to exactly manipulate it.Which would come in handy if somewhere down the road we wish to terraform other planets because I do not think it is as simple as melting the ice on Mars like in Total Recall. Of course I do see religious nuts using climate research to try to push the man made global warming fairy tale belief.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Climate has been changing since the dawn of this planet. Nothing we can do to stop it. Space is much more important in my opinion.

    Not to mention we'll have to deal with the by-products on adverse ACC far longer then it would take to establish a sizable human colony on Mars.

    Oh my God! I wish I would have never started this poll. It's already driving me bat-**** crazy!

    Assuming anthropogenic global warming is a real problem, what in the hell do you think "climate research" will do to solve it? We already know what the solution is to this phony problem, so why do we need to research it?

    This doesn't even address the fact that you're making inferences based upon nothing more than assumptions, e.g., we'll have to deal with the by-products of adverse ACC. You don't know that, and neither does anybody else.

    I see AGW as dubious at best. I definitely don't see it as a looming catastrophe threatening all life on the planet.

    Therefore I vote for space.

    Yeah, similarly, space exploration is code word for: "I drive a hummer because I'm overcompensating, " or in other words: "when we've thoroughly exploited this planet for a short-term buck, we'll have a plan B."
