Denning said the considered setting up a colony to which humanity would possibly escape if the Earth turns into uninhabitable is not solely an unrealistic thought, nonetheless a dangerous one as properly. ⁠

“How can we be enthusiastic regarding the human functionality to find whereas sustaining our take care of what should happen proper right here on this planet?” Denning said. Faucet the hyperlink in our bio to be taught further on Futurism.⁠

  • “If we only focus” that’s where we could act dumb as shit. Let’s do both.

  • I find it so funny saying “if we move”. Who are we? All species? All humans? Just representatives of the human species? How exactly can 8 bilion humans go to planet B when half of them are living in poverty here? Titles like these are just ridicules. 😉

  • It’s even more misguided to think humans can’t and WILL do both.

  • Well luckily, Kathryn. People have varied interest. So whilst u might want to stay here and improve our home and Bezos wants to explore the possibility of living in orbit, they are not mutually exclusive courses of action 🤗

  • False dichotomy… We can, and should, both save earth AND develop space exploration. Not only is it a smart insurance hedge, but the adventure of it is just so damn irresistible!

  • People start losing hope so think other solutions. Me still have some, hope humanity will wake up and save the most precious asset

  • We need a breakthrough, someone to discover a better way to travel through space.

  • This notion is baseless an ignorant at best, at worst it completely misses the true idea of space travel and colonization… simply put, don’t put your eggs in one basket. Regardless of whether we leave the earth due to self-inflicted damages or not, we still run the risk of mother nature doing it to us… (cosmic mother nature, that is)… asteroids.. gamma bursts… we could die a planetary death in many ways, even excluding our own atrocities towards ourselves and the planet. So no, this notion of not colonizing space is not intelligent, it’s dumb.

  • Typical human nature all must be a zero sum game. All or nothing, why can’t we explore exploit expand and exterminate while taking care of our home?
