    To counter-act global warming, why don't we just deploy solar panels over strategic areas to both block some of the sunshine hitting the globe, and soak up energy to use to clean up near space? Antarctica, Greenland, the Sahara desert, parts of the oceans, etc. . Partial eclipses of the Sun drop the temperature by several degrees. A semi-permanent, movable, partial eclipse could power both a magnetic "jellyfish" to capture dangerous cosmic debris, as well as a space elevator. This would make much more sense to me than trying to put a permanent settlement on Mars.

    No, he's no genius. As far as I know he's never accomplished any significant science. He's just a funded loudmouth, like Kaku and Nye. The latest IPCC Special Report SP15 [2018] shows we're likely to go extinct far before these loudmouths' ideas can be implemented. But if he said these truths, he'd be out of a job. The whole international scientific community ignores him. Oh, and also Americans. If you want the actual scientific knowledge, look elsewhere.

    One must never wish war, but one must always be ready for it. That's why a space force is a wise idea.

    Super shill Neil deGrasse Tyson - here to give vocal back up to the U.S.As' silly "Space force" business. The leel of stupidity and ignorrance to support all this from the man on the street - just becuase it's promoted well on television by celebrities. O.M.G what a daft world we live in. NASA: Cost to Tax payer: 50 million dollars a day.

    What an debris is out there floating around at 18,000 miles per hour how come then with all the satellites out there they have not been destroyed or damaged by all this space junk...or knocked out of its orbital trajectory...but what do I know after all pluto isn’t a planet because Neil the Ass Tyson says so.

    It's so much fun to watch NdgT sperg out excitedly next to Colbert who's dry as an insurance claims rep - reminds me that people are still fun and quirky and energetic, not every media personality is an npc.
