To Boldly Go ... Nowhere?
(fm the BC thread "Blue Plate Special")
It would shock me if the "you can't drill for oil anywhere" crowd didn't kill space exploration on the grounds that we can't have the nasty humans despoiling the pristine perfection of the Cosmos. In their view everything is natural and acceptable except for anything done by human activity, especially if that activity was done for profit. They view humanity as a disease that only produces the toxins of pollution.
