I'm all for shooting a bunch of humans into space right now! Just get 'em the hell outta here.
Shower thought...

What is the difference between the idea of escaping a ruined earth vs being Raptured?


You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.

Why?

If I believed that we had unlimited time to experiment, invest, and expand into space I'd be 100% in favor of it. Elon Musk is doing just that and I'm okay with it.

Trouble is...global warming is gonna kill us all before space can save any of us.

The ocean can sustain us, does sustain us, and has sustained us since we crawled from the primordial ooze. Space may help sustain us someday after global warming is put behind us.

I think there's more to be gleaned from the sea, and at a lower overall cost, than can ever be achieved in space.
