  1. Great guest, and their insights are important. I think they lack optimism. Optimistic people breed ingenuity. If there is a will there is a way. I say we prolong our stay on this planet using a conglomerate of “renewable” resources. Solar, Wind. Technology that can power our future more responsibly. It’s not perfect, but a start. In addition, we need to reach for the stars. Our closest neighbor is the moon, and their are plenty of resources we could start to use their. We learn from our mistakes, and make the next settlement better than the one before. To me that is progress.

  2. It’s good to hear the hard truths, and it’s good to have guest that challenge our beliefs and views. That is why I listen to this show. We can choose to roll over and die, or attempt to make a change for the better. Great job with the show and keep up the good work.
