I saw an article in the news about it being visible in our area tonight, and I have an android app that tells you what the stuff you're looking at in the sky is.

It was moving incredibly fast and it was right where the app said it would be.

My night vision isn't perfect, but what I saw was a bright light at the front - the direction it was moving, and some dimmer lights behind. The dimmer lights could have been a halo effect, though. But others also saw the dimmer lights, too.

I grew up in Florida, so I've seen launches in person before. I've never seen the ISS before, though, or recognized any object up there as an artificial satellite.

It's always goosebump-inducing to see with my own eyes evidence that we are a spacefaring species.

Gives me a little lift, when there's so much evidence suggesting the planet and our species are going to shit down here.

I 100% agree.


Not too mention goosebump inducing by the sheer massive structure that it is! It's pretty amazing.

I wonder if I have seen it before.. without knowing. I think so.

This interests me. And this isn't the right thread for it... But, maybe we should make one to talk about the environment, population, etc.


What is the worst thing, in your opinion, that is making things go to shit here?

Our species is fully committed to overpopulation.
We all agree in general, I claim, but don't agree
as to what size world pop would be just right:
100 million, 500 million, 1 billion, ...?

I have one biological child and 4 step-children,
3 of the steps are no longer in relationship with me. Oh well.

It's a combination of things: Extreme, extreme EXTREME wealth concentration that is getting worse and that enables corporations and governments in the developed world to plunder and virtually enslave the developing world.

Climate change looks like it's hit a tipping point. We're now in the mode of trying to mitigate the effects, not prevent them, and I'm skeptical even if the US govt were 100% in to combat climate change that it would be enough at this point.

We're still rebuilding in areas that now routinely see floods at high tide and in flood-prone areas. We're still rebuilding in areas that have become incredibly high risks for wildfires.

The impacts on agriculture and agricultural products are understandable, but hard to tease out and in a fragmented world are impossible to address effectively in a piecemeal fashion.

Here's an example of the efforts to adapt ONE crop: https://ensia.com/features/cotton-climate

I mean, it's comforting, but is it enough and is this kind of effort being put into enough other crops? Maybe?

And what are the ramifications of crops being modified wholesale to adapt to higher temperatures and all that entails and the vast majority of other lineages dying off? It's the complete opposite of genetic diversity, which is already almost a thing of the past in our food crops.

We're also already seeing the geopolitical impact of climate refugees and migrations.

^100% of that is a result of overpopulation. We should all kill ourselves, now.

Overpopulation is the result of pride, fear/anger, greed, sloth, lust, envy and gluttony

The 7 deadly/capital sins.

The godless want others to change. The god fearing change themselves. Admit it, you proles!
