    Mankind better just focus on building bubble enclosed cities / communities on Earth by 2100, as the weather may want to kill us by then.

    Crikey, did you read that recent article about how warm it is in Alaska? Ugh. Not good.

    Google "Alaska is warming up"

    Ya, ironically, we gonna now need the space technology to survive on the surface of our own planet and I agree, we can't start to soon! We cannot afford a bubble enclosed city gap!!!!
    If we're gonna wear uniforms, we should all wear somethin' different!

    Humans can get fit for space while they're in space because it's so easy to jog in place.

    Of course humans will fit in Space. There's a lot of space in Space, so you can fit pretty much everything.

    Except certain individual's ego swollen testicles.

    We formed out of star dust in space and we'll return to star dust in space.. It's the circle of life and death.

    I wonder where we’ll have to go to buy our spaceships, and if TruCoat will be involved.

    no they are not.

    zero gravity and zero sunlight have effects of the body over time, so any amount over a year is going to have to have some artificial substitutes for those.

    I don't know, have you seen how fat people are these days? And even if there is room, I don't believe we have rockets with enough thrust.

    Cigarette smoking needs to make a comeback. People were a lot thinner when everyone smoked.

    The planet is fucked, build the domes.

    In 2017, I was back on the trail outside Old Crow. Winter temperatures there are more than four degrees warmer than normal; the Vuntut Gwitchin plan to declare a state of emergency due to climate change. The willows had grown yet thicker. They are beautiful in the autumn when each leaf turns bright yellow, mapping seams of soil moisture and warmth across the tundra with ribbons of gold in the low-angled northern sun.

    But there is something quietly ominous in the willows’ new lushness. When shrubs grow taller and thicker, the snow under their shade cannot refract solar radiation back into space. A bank of willow holds more warmth to the surface of the Earth than does a snowdrift, which reflects the sun’s heat. A large stand of willows will raise soil temperatures, melting permafrost. The permafrost holds seasons upon seasons of plant matter that, until now, have never grown warm enough to decompose. If it thaws, those old plants will rot, releasing carbon.

    Change begets more change, another tiny contribution of greenhouse gases sailing out into the atmosphere, joining with billions of other particles to make the planet ever warmer.
