Why can't they use the ocean for water, they would create jobs for a water desalination plant and since the oceans are rising anyway why not? Plus they would need a pipeline and more jobs there as well. Also we really need to work on not having so many offsprings. The world can't take it and our enviroment definetly can't. We pollute it more and more when we should be working on turning it around. Instead of waisting money on Mars we should be putting it towards cleaning up the air, ground and water on this planet. What is everyone waiting for anyway? Just like fossil fuel, we have about 50 years left of it and I still see comercials for these monster fuel guzzling machines. Everyone seems to be waiting for tomorrow or the next guy to do something until one day were really going to be facing the monster we've created. You have more pull than I do N.G. lets get something going to turn all this around before tomorrow finally gets here!
@Bennett Scharf The crazy part is it's what we do as individuals in small ways that will fix the worlds problems. Only consume what you can produce would eventually change the world. It doesn't take the whole world to change. If 30% of the people in one country would do their part the cost for the rest would be so great they would be forced to change. Start with you local community. No body can change a massive government but changing the habits of your own community changes the wealth of hat community, this change puts stress on the surrounding community.
