It’s Earth Day and I’d like to leave

I LOVE the Earth.  Especially the Oceans.

We absolutely need to take care of it. One trip down to your local river or pond will prove that we aren’t doing a very good job of it.  We have an energy problem, and we throw plastic trash everywhere. And that’s just 2 of thousands of things we need to start getting right.

I’d like to leave.

Not because I think the Earth is a lost cause, but because I think it’s essential for saving it.

We live in a very narrow band of atmosphere on a fairly small planet, circling a fairly ordinary star.  Trying to be creative in a small space is difficult and lately, it shows.

Staying put limits our thinking.  Staying put limits our opportunities.

We have “inventors block”.

Have you ever had a creative block for days and gone for a walk?  The change of scenery and input almost always triggers a flood of ideas.  If you ever try this, bring a recording device.  Really.

This would work for the problems we face here on Earth.

What if we “took a walk” as a species to cure our “inventors block”? Mars and Europa are waiting for us to stroll by.

Let’s go, and I’ll pack the recorder and the whiteboard.

  1. SWEET. I’ll bring the tastey cakes and doritos.

    Seriously, though, how many things were invented because of our first missions to the moon?

    For one, we wouldn’t have those nifty pillows that leave your hand print in them when you press down.
