“THIS?? Long term exploration?? No, this is our plan to keep screwing up the Earth until we can't live here anymore, devastate other planets while we explore our options for bailing out, and starting the mess all over again. WHY can we not spend this money to find ways to ameliorate the damage we have done here so it is habitable long after our grandchildren are gone?”

Hohenstaufen on Apr 9, 2014 at 20:02:51

“Money used for space exploration and basic research is money well spent. Be realistic. If we stopped giving money to NASA, it wouldn't be used to remediate environmental damage on Earth, it would be spent on more drones, another expensive weapons system, or still more tax breaks for rich people. Besides, you know that NASA has had a major role in climate change research, right? The name James Hansen should ring a bell.”

“A lynch-mob mentality vs. a man who did the right thing- sigh. I recall when I was little, we were on a family trip to Kokomo, and a kid was riding a bike along the side of the road. He swerved right into the path of our car. We hit him, and my mom got out immediately to help him. He was okay, got a new bike, but it was his fault. My mom did the right thing. So did this guy, and look what he got for it. Shame on these people.”

“There should be no breeding programs in zoos.”

ohiolaurie on Mar 26, 2014 at 19:20:43

“I agree, and this zoo is particularly stupid about breeding and genetics. No idea why the European Breeding folks authorized this when they already had a healthy pride!”

Autora on Mar 26, 2014 at 12:46:54

“Breeding programs are important for a lot of reasons, one of them being to maintain strong genetic diversity in endangered species.”

Lobo72 on Mar 26, 2014 at 02:22:27

“What? Without breeding programs they would have to take them out of the wild, if they even could. Without breeding programs zoos would run out of animals in many cases. It is how they help sustain zoo populations.”

visionrider on Mar 25, 2014 at 23:31:23

“Then there would be no California Condors.

Breeding programs at responsible zoos save species from extinction.

Lions breed like rabbits.
There's no intra zoo market for them.
Tiger populations at zoos are even worse.”

“It's amazing that someone would attack me for commenting on behalf of the vast majority of women I know to be overlooked by the fashion industry. We are not perfect size 2s, 4s or 8s. We have had children and years of hard work and our bodies have changed. Our breasts may be lower, our bums may flatter and our middles plumper. We have wrinkles, gray hair and age spots and we own them. This has nothing to do with being "womanly." Being womanly comes from how we feel inside and how we express those feelings through the way we live. Why are you so angry?”

“Okay HuffPo writers, I Just want to point out that the header on the front page "Leo coughs up …" is kind of insulting. It gives the impression the money was given unwillingly when the article is actually focusing on his largesse.”

Autora on Feb 23, 2014 at 11:19:12

“I didn't see that. The headline I saw was something like 'Leonardo DiCaprio Makes Huge Environmental Donation.' I agree that if you saw something that said 'coughs up' it's really obnoxious and insulting. Maybe HP changed it when they realized nobody would find that amusing?”
