We now stand at a crossroads. However unintentional, humans are responsible for climate change. It is time we own up to that and deal with the problem in earnest.

Of course, discovering propellantless propulsion is based on the assumption that the physics of propellantless propulsion does exist. The now defunct Alcubierre Warp Drive and string theories, point to the need for care and empirical proof that the physics of propellantless propulsion does exist.

An Exploration of Physics Logic

Benjamin T. Solomon

Physics is by consensus! In gravitational theories we have three accords, Relativity, Strings & Quantum (RSQ) theories. Like a board of directors, the physics community, based on empirical evidence, agree to disagree on how Nature works. Nature, herself, has only one vote, and it is a veto.

As he puts it: "...death is a loss... too long is also a loss." It's a question of which we prefer, a shorter more vibrant life, or a longer one in which we eventually will have to cope with the challenge of a slow decline.

Gaza From the Perspective of a Proud Diaspora Jew

I have been doing my best not to think too much about Gaza, not only publicly but for myself. I can no longer avoid pondering all the uncomfortable thoughts Israel's bombing of Gaza is bringing home to me. Of one thing I'm sure of -- I want to tell Netanyahu, "I told you so." Netanyahu's purpose was always designed to prevent any chance of rapprochement. What's unfolding was foretold by his actions.
