    nah, you are like canute trying to hold the tide back. The liberals have conducted the March Through The Institutions, and have enough leverage now to scare various industries. And the various industries disagree with you. And its a FACT that you wont be able to sell a petrol engined car in the UK or the Eu by 2035/2040, its law. So if the american car companies want to keep selling cars outside the USA they will have to go with the flow. The Japanese companies are fallign into line. Its inevitable, because in the end its all about money.


    Even the USA is pursuing fusion power

    UK should be up and running by 2040

    im so very sorry you have given up. surrender is your motto. its not ours. this is a conservative poster board. if you wish to continue talking trash, be prepared to be crushed by the gang. have fun. ( falklands, PNG and old Harry in the gulf of newfoundland are all oozing out condensate and itll only get worse as the natural fractured formations continue to be charged from their kitchens. youve been debunked, live with it. )

    2. Its becoming clear the building blocks of life are created in the vast debris clouds of stellar nurseries, bathed in hard UV-C that would literally fry you in seconds if you were there, and then spread around the universe on comets, asteroids and meteorites. Its clear that every body in the universe is showered with organic compounds, and thus any planet that can sustain life or any sort, probably does,

    Prepare for extinction. The distances are simply too great.

    nah. you are making the false assumption that we wil make no further edvances in science.

    The problem with stating something is impossible is that you do not know what you may discover in the future.

    in 1890, it was stated quite positively that it would be impossible to travel faster then 60mph because at that speed you wouldnt be able the breathe.

    in 1890, you would have not been able to predict cars, planes, rockets, satellites, hydroplanes, lasers, computers, tanks, missiles, nuclear war, television, radio, the internet, mobile phones, heart surgery, nanotechnology, aviation alloys, the gas turbine, genetic engineering, nuclear power, plasma physics, radio astronomy, the helicopters...... in fact the world of today would be unrecognisable magic to someone from 1890.

    You have no idea what forms of computing, propulsion, power, communications or other technologies of sciences we have yet to invent, but you can look at the massive holes we have in various branches of scientific knowhow and see theres a huge amount still to discover

    And since the rate of paradigm shift in the 16 key branches of science has since 1980 demonstrably been increasing at an exponential rate, i g'ee the world of 2070 will be just as unrecognisable to us as today is to 1890 man would be.

    Oh and the other thing you learn from history is that man has conquered every single technological and scientific obstacle thats been put in our way. And the arrival of true Ai wil make that even more true. And id also like to point out science fiction has a tendency to become true - most sci fi is written by blue sky thinkers like Isacc Asimov, whos predictions about robotics and Ai are already becoming true. And most of the tech in 1960's Star Trek is in existence i nsime form, including matter transporters and the docs Tricorder (from a DARPA Challenge). And Mobile Phones are pretty much Star Treks 'communicators'.

    Good to see my alma mater so involved. The U of A is probably the best place to get any degree in the High Frontier.
    Good journey, Rickity!
