@aral I don't mind billionaires and millionaires in space. It's the letting them come back down part i take issue with.
@lxo I didnt say anything about letting them have space stations...
Also i like Elysium, but the reverse seems more likely. Bezos is already talking about blasting the workforce into space so he and his can enjoy golf course earth or whatever.
To them climate change isn’t a problem to be solved but a pretext to force fuel poverty on people so that they can enjoy cheap resources for their desires. Central bank policies have only worked to accelerate ecological disasters to make them richer.
These people are true supremacists, they essentially believe they are the real human beings and the rest of humanity are simply a waste of ‘their’ resources the moment they can be replaced.
@aral and virtual reality so you can hide from the world you’ve created. From the people that learned nothing from scifi.
@aral and then you still forgot:
At least you can make that lush and green when the planet attains more Mad Max qualities. And "planting a billion trees" also gets easier along the way :)
@aral The problems at the top require government policy. Capitalists can't do much to help poverty as long as helping the poor shows up as a loss-making activity on the company's books. Same with climate e.g. if there's no carbon price (set by govt), there's no commercial incentive to improve.
So, complain at your government(s).
@aral Sorry Silicon Valley hasn’t lived up to your expectations, but I’m a bit flummoxed as to why we expect Silicon Valley to solve these problems when we can’t get Washington DC or any European government to even pass a carbon tax. Like, literally the people whose jobs it is to solve these problems.
