Bill Nye on Terraforming Mars: “Are You Guys High?”

https://futurism.com/bill-nye-mars-terraforming-high

"Nye isn’t alone in his thinking, either — noted astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, another well-known science advocate, also believes any plans to make Mars livable for humans are absurd."

And here: https://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/science/2018/11/19/bill-nye-mars-were-not-going-live-there-make-like-earth/1905447002/

And here:
"Neil deGrasse Tyson Says Humans Will Never Colonize Mars"

https://futurism.com/neil-degrasse-tyson-humans-colonize-mars

This is exactly what my hubs, a PhD NASA physicist, has been saying all along: the idea is preposterous -- especially given that we aren't even taking care of planet Earth enough to sustain human and most other life here.

We simply don't have the resources to create the biological diversity on Mars that we have here and it's exactly that biological diversity that is needed to sustain us. Colonizing Mars is an extremely unrealistic pipe dream.

NASA ppl know this too but have to come up with acceptable and exciting ideas simply to get continued funding from a very naive Congress.

Gawd, we cannot ask that NASA come up with ideas to help combat global climate change, the undeniable #1 threat to existence of most all life. And we're facing this before the end of this century. But what can we expect from a Congress and a population who still believe in a Sky Daddy who is not going to let bad things happen to them.

People should be reading more science and less science fiction. Seriously.
