I’ll see ya later, I’m going to Mars with my old mate Elon Musk. One way trip for $100K, commencing 2024. Climate deniers need not apply unless for provision of compost. Besides you’ve got your own planet, Venus. Plenty of CO2 there and nice and hot too with a casino where you get Trumps in every deal. You’ll love it!

On Mars we will need people capable of understanding science and making science based decisions. After all, we will be busy healing our planet, not destroying it.

We wish all you Earthies well. When we can, we will send you rations and solar panels. Shouldn’t be too hard because there will only be a few of you left by then. In the meantime keep your pool filters clean and your gas wells pumping.

 


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
