I am currently in an environmental and occupational health class as part my master of public health program.

Climate change will kill us before any other threat (war, artificial intelligence, economic crisis). We have 20-30 years MAX to get our shit together and these rich assholes dgaf about their carbon footprints.

I saw an article that said Jeff Bezos is heavily investing in space travel because “we’ve already killed the earth” YOU (Jeff Bezos) killed the earth, you alien headed, Voldemort looking bastard.

"We humans have to go to space if we are going to continue to have a thriving civilization," he said. "We have become big as a population, as a species, and this planet is relatively small. We see it in things like climate change and pollution and heavy industry. We are in the process of destroying this planet."

-Jeff Bezos

How TF are we going to get to those settlements Jeff? Are you planning on building low income housing in space??

Only billionaires are going to colonize space. The rest of us will burn

Space is for the rich and a new exploited working class. Fucking Colonizer mentality. And I'm 100% sure space planning is about resource extraction, and that BS Bezos is spewing is a false justification.

Bezos has to be one of the most evil billionaires out there. I’m sick of the overpopulation myth when most of the pollution comes from first world countries while most of the world barely contributes anything. It’s just an excuse to treat poorer countries’ citizens as disposable. Also how’s he going to continue his business in space when he’ll probably leave most of his customer base on Earth to perish? He is so sociopathic for treating his workers like shit and completely bypassing fighting climate change

He really took that message in Wall-E to heart.

I love how he was like, "some people will choose to still live on earth, some in space" as if anyone but the megarich will have that choice. But he's so out of touch, I mean, his idea of "more affordable" space travel is 250,000 a ticket.

He could start by making all his facilities green but that doesn't interest him like space does, it's so self serving and just an ego stroke.

I don't think he's out of touch. I think he is evil. He knows that poor people will be left behind to die. He doesn't care. The richest man in the world only pays his workers $15 hour. He knows we will die and he doesn't care

I think he's both evil AND out of touch. A society without anybody other than rich assholes will not survive. Not everything can be solved with robots and computers.

The Earth will abide. Humanity is fucked.

It's more complicated than that. Climate change will make the earth completely uninhabitable for humans. But there are also significant environmental and ecosystem changes. For example, several species of fish have been genetically changed by polluted water.
