№ 218. "There may be flowing water on Mars. But is there intelligent life on Earth?"

"New findings from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) provide the strongest evidence yet that liquid water flows intermittently on present-day Mars."


Meanwhile, on Earth.... We are still debating, doing very little that is aggressive and significant enough to reverse climate change and continuing blithely with our irresponsibility---daily. I am already old enough so I have only a few more decades left. But I do fear for the next generations. What will they inherit from our shortsighted and selfish mess of a world?

The Guardian
"Let the market decide: this is the way in which governments seek to resolve planetary destruction. Leave it to the conscience of consumers, while that conscience is muted and confused by advertising and corporate lies. In a near-vacuum of information, we are each left to decide what we should take from other species and other people, what we should allocate to ourselves or leave to succeeding generations. Surely there are some resources and some places – such as the Arctic and the deep sea – whose exploitation should simply stop?"
