    We should implement a global cosmic tax.

    no, but having to fit heavy armour to anything and everything we try to launch into space, is
    going to put a serious crimp in our space programs.

    Satelites are nut just useful but essential to our modern lifestyle.

    And you would notice if they all got destroyed by space debris.


    The reason the people on the east coast of america got days notice that they were going to
    be hit with a hurricane and thus could prepare, was because of satelite forcasting.

    Satelites are important.

    Orbiting space junk kills satelites.

    Thus space junk is bad and we should do something about it.



    I also suspect you are buying into the nonsense that global climate change isn't real/serious/man made...

    This is nonsense...

    but then you knew that... right.

    He isn't buying into it. He is the one spreading it. He has some twisted theory that it will get him out of paying carbon tax (and he doesn't really care what happens to his children).

    not too bad considering a bucket of sand would be about that much.
