The Martians are coming! The Martians are coming! Or perhaps the “killer comet” is coming! Would that motivate the planet’s humans to work together and see to a common strategy to save our race? No amount of billionaire joyrides to space or subterranean hideaways will save them.
The cliche “we’re all in this together” is totally correct. COP26 is indeed the best plan going forward and yet it still is mired and threatened by national suspicions and rivalries. The U.S. military is the single biggest polluter on the planet. The research and development budget for new weaponry dwarfs the collective government efforts at finding clean energy solutions as well as efforts to stop the ecocide of species decline and nonsustainable farming and manufacturing practices. Lots to do and so little time. Will any extraterrestrials out there please stand up and give us a hand?
