    What’s the world coming to, Bob? A CIC’s minions can’t even engage in a little bit of honest blackmail. 🙂 Regards, Paul.

    I guess we better set the parental controls on our browsers once he starts talking about the Full Moon. 8) …. I liked the Musk like shot of him being “in the loop” at the 25 sec mark. What the hell a CEO does in a real mission control escapes me. Maybe they’re the Go Fever officer. Of course ULA takes it to burlesque levels with their Sr management mission control theater lined in quarter sawn oak. What a joke.

    Unfortunately for his influence on public policy Bezos, like most progressives, is stuck in the 60’s when it comes to his ideas about population dynamics. In the developed world, populations are already falling when immigration is subtracted. Europe and the U.S. – at the behest of progressives once again – have been deliberately pulling in peasant and tribal immigrants who are ill-suited to keeping advanced societies running. Rather than limiting population, advanced nations will, if rationality prevails, soon be subsidizing both desirable immigration and childbearing/rearing by native citizens in non-trivial ways if they wish to avoid national extinctions.

    Hungary is already proposing to make mothers of 4 kids exempt from income tax. And Japan has been fighting the battle for years.

    But environmentalists have always been slow on the uptake. Look at how long it took to them recognize global warming although Willy Ley and Isaac Asimov were writing about it, and advocating nuclear energy as the solution, many decades ago. Pity the environmentalists didn’t listen and fought it. If they had accepted the science then CO2 would still be in the low 300’s ppm.

    No, the reasons humans need to expand through the Solar System and the Galaxy beyond to reduce the risk of extinction, and prevent back slidding into a anti-tech world.

    that last sentence is a fools dream. it will be centuries before humans can survive on other planets/bodies other than the earth without the earth

    Progressives have gone too far down the anti-reproductive rabbit hole to turn around and climb back out. Besides, they always prefer coercion to the offering of incentives. Hungary has, in general, the right idea. In the U.S., where the majority of the population pays little or no income tax anyway, one might get further with incentives based on social security multipliers. Seems only fair that folks who want to eventually live off successive generations should take some responsibility for producing said generations first.

    If you’d written “century” – singular – I’d have been willing to concede the point. As is, not so much.

  • duheagle

    Yeah, I get that a lot from clueless progs.
