From Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Startalk:
Neil deGrasse Tyson explores the future of humanity with one of the men forging that future: billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX and Tesla Motors. Join us as Neil and Elon talk about NASA funding, getting humans excited for the colonization of Mars, and why Elon feels it’s important to not be stuck here on Earth. You’ll also find out why sustainable production and consumption of energy is critically important, but flying cars may not be such a good idea. Meanwhile, back in the studio, guest engineer Bill Nye schools Neil and Chuck Nice about SpaceX’s major innovations and how they’ve improved efficiency and lowered the cost of commercial space flight. They discuss the value of human exploration of space, life on Mars, and Bill’s next book about climate change, Unbounded. Finally, you’ll discover why Elon, who was programming computers at the age of 9, is afraid of the consequences for mankind of developing an artificial super intelligence.
Interesting comments. If we just assume that the principle driver of current a-crock-alypses (and related ideologies) is to get and keep power over other human beings by any available means, one could probably predict most people’s positions pretty accurately.
For one thing, it becomes evident that they think OTHER people are wrecking Earth. If everyone lived exactly as they dictate, things would be fine.
