Stephen Hawking – "we must leave Earth".
Humans will need to colonise another planet within one hundred years to ensure our survival, according to Professor Stephen Hawking.

The astrophysicist has made a new documentary, Expedition New Earth, as part of the BBC’s new science season Tomorrow’s World. In it he will claim that time is running out for Earth and if humanity is to survive climate change, asteroid strikes, epidemics and overpopulation we will need to leave our planet and venture further afield.
Hey, I'm not opposed to colonizing other planets, or even building our own, but, dude, really? Climate change? This is a good example of what happens when smart people don't stay in their own lane.

Hey, I'm ready to leave this planet! But, not because I'm worried about the things he's worried about. What I'd like to get away from is the mass insanity known as liberalism.

Of course, they'd have to keep liberals off the space ship, or the disease would just infect the new planet, too.

Stephen Hawking. Brain the size of a planet and STILL he was duped by Gore and DiCaprio.

I'm in favor of colonizing other worlds, but the climate change thing is like nails on a chalkboard, and it comes from a guy who invited a time traveler to a dinner party.

rinardman, I don't think we'd have to worry about lefties for too long.

Pioneering on a new planet would probably be rough on lefties.
Stobor don't do 'fair'.

Hahaha!This truth proves that even "smart people" can be duped. It would be nice if Hawking were a critical thinker.

I've long thought that what Hawking and fellow astrophysists theorize is a dupe masquerading as science.

Don't let the liberals off this planet. To do so would be interstellar pollution...and a episode of a sci-fi show. Of course, if a distant uninhabited planet were located that was not near a habitated planet, then it could work.

I say load Hawking and all the other idiots onto a rocket and fire them off to planet Eden. The planet where the climate never changes.
