Zillionaires are polluters!

We all know that, right? People who make their bucks from fossil fuels are damaging our planet and, consequently, us.

No empathy.

Soot particles introduced into the upper atmosphere by space launches have five hundred times the heat-trapping capacity as soot particles released by aviation.

Space launches. While government launches may be considered crucial for our defense and communications, I don’t think those luxurious little personal space trippers Jeff Bezos (Blue Origin), Elon Musk (SpaceX) and Richard Branson (Virgin Galactic) have anything important to offer the rest of us.
