Now, given what humanity has done to earth, would you trust the present mindset of humanity in another biosphere? I wouldn't. We'd probably just
trash that system to..
We haven’t destroyed the earth, nothing is wrong with the earth.
We should go out into space...and we are, not just are satellites that we send to other planets, but Nasa has said were going to the moon by 2020, and
by 2024 we will have a good enough infrastructure (moon base) there to have humans stay there for extended periods of time (around 6 months), it will
gradually grow, and we will go to mars sometime after that.
When your talking about "us harming the earth", I'm assuming your referring to global warming (Al Gore is a tool)(just though I'd throw that out
there)...anywho, global warming has been going on long before we even evolved into humans, so blaming that on us is ridiculous. we have however
likely sped it up...and if we can speed it up...we can also slow it down...which we will know doubt do. Its not like we must solve this problem or in
10 years we'll all be dead.
People always play it up, When Katrina hit the US...the vast majority of damage was simply done because of a levee that failed...not because
hurricanes have grown immensely from of us polluting the air...it was just a big hurricane season. They predicted it would keel getting worse and
next year will be Very Bad...well the 06 hurricane season is over...and it was one of the WEAKEST hurricane seasons of the decade.
We will come up with a solution eventually...even if that means building a giant sunshade that sits between the earth and the sun (yes...that concept
really exist), however we resolve it...it will happen. I doubt the earth will ever go into another ice age as long as humans exist on this
planet...we simply wont let it.
