Kepler 22b

Our priest mentioned Kepler 22b at Mass a couple weeks ago, and my kids and me have been talking about it ever since.

This is just so cool. Who wants to go with me?

        Send them to Venus. Give them a preview of what Earth will be like after all the Athabaska tarsands oil has been exploited.

          Earth First!…..we can strip mine the other planets later!…..

          I do agree with your last sentence, however Mr. Tulk…..

          OK Gord, time to get on the rocket. I’m sure they have petrochemicals on Kepler as well

          Besides, something tells me that if photovoltaic cells had been discovered/invented in the time of Col. Drake, we’d have not only copious amounts of whales, but a pleasant lack of acid rain, smog days, and dead zones in the Gulf of Mexico and Bering Sea

          @Mr. Tulk…..Sorry, Mr. Tulk…..despite new technology and methods…..greenhouse gases from the tar sands continue to go up, not down, and no amount of you and your stinkin party’s greenwashing will change that…..

          The always controversial Mr. Tulk wrote:

          “Unpolished shoes are a disgrace to God and man. This is a truth I learnt from my dear Father. Perhaps this is why I find the polishing of shoes to be positively therapeutic. Requiring concentration and a modest expenditure of energy, but no thought, it enables the mind to rest and find comfort. And the result is truly satisfying. Scuffed, badly-maintained shoes denote laziness and unreliability in the wearer.”

          Thin ice, Mr. Tulk. Thin ice.
