    I can't even comprehend why people still think it's ok to deny people the right to marry.

"Australia plans to ditch its clean energy target aimed at curbing greenhouse gas emissions in favour of coal power generation." https://www.ft.com/content/37854ff0-b2fd-11e7-a398-73d59db9e399?utm_campaign=buffer&utm_content=buffer4f6b2&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com

    Australia is responsible for over 1% of carbon emissions and this legislation will have a global impact. Yes, China and the US are the countries most to blame but that doesn't excuse the smaller but sill large polluters. Our governments need to start taking notes from Bhutan.

Should we make mars our base of operations, a Corrscant, so to speak, and restore earth to its primal ecological glory, or, terraform mars and use it as a planet wide natural reserve where human colonies are limited and all of earths animals and plants can coexist without human interaction?

    I can't see there being a single faction that decides where to set up industrial centers. They'll likely pop up wherever it's convenient, but I imagine there will be some basic patterns in colonial establishment (much like how early cities tended to form along rivers, etc.).

    Nor could we convince more than a small minority of Earth's population to leave their homeland. Spacers will of course far outnumber Earthlings someday, but most of them will be natives, not recent immigrants from Earth.

OK, who deleted my comment? It was a lighthearted joke about Martian timekeeping, and playing with peoples' expectations a bit.

    This is evidence that feminism is not out of control, that the Red Pillers are simply wrong.

    Red pillers exist because equality can feel like oppression when a person comes from a formerly entitled class.

    but not much. I'm pretty sure civil rights laws don't include them except for in some states. This brokenness, I'm afraid, cannot be healed, because it goes much deeper than a surface tension if it revolves around worldviews and theologies. These are cores of a person and would require moving a mountain. I personally always expect the worst of people anymore. I don't think humanity is nice or friendly, but predatory. However, I always have hope that there is a small ounce of...

    *edit - not much kindness once I became a minority. Forgot to add that part. When I was part of the majority I had no idea how terrifying it was to be on the other side of that equation. And how, there really is no hope of things ever being truly good.

The sun and sky has been red for a lot of today in England, caused by Hurricane Ophelia blowing sand from the Sahara and ash from the Portugese forest fires. Felt a bit like being on Mars for some of today.

    After watching storms and hurricanes develop in the Pacific over the summer, it's weird to see one collide with the British Isles. It makes these islands look tiny. https://earth.nullschool.net/#current/wind/surface/level/orthographic=353.32,52.51,1137/loc=-12.229,55.096

Think welfare queens (the geniune kind) are on the chopping block for receiving welfare benefits under Trump soon? It remains to be seen whether Congress will even budge at all.

    @PhoenixRu, he did indeed have strong proto-communist views; he seems to be arguing for the abolishment of private property in Utopia. However, he was quite clearly a devoted Catholic Christian, and I would argue that his criticisms of private property, vices, and greed stem from what he sees as a contrast between early Christian communal values and how these ideals have been mutated in 16th century European society.

Is anyone here old enough to remember dialup Internet speeds? Back in 2000-2001, even downloading a single MP3 file took about 20 minutes. These days it takes about 0.2 seconds :)
