Solution to All the World's Problems

The world is in crisis, or so many believe. The economy is still down in most parts of the world. Global Warming is an unaddressed looming danger. We are slowly nearing the end of our fossil fuels. We are becoming overpopulated. Therefore, I have come up with a simple solution that will solve all of these problems.
The economies of all the major industrial powers should be altered and geared toward space exploration. This idea may seem ludicrous at first. However, if we carefully consider all of the repercussions, we see that most of these will solve the problems we are facing. First, the economy will no longer be an issue, because we will, in essence, have a wartime system, where all the industries are focused toward a single cause. Secondly, fuel shortages will no longer be an issue, because we will naturally have to come up with alternate fuels quickly to advance our exploration of the solar system. Global Warming and overpopulation are solved, as we will be able to resettle human populations in the solar system within a few hundred years or so. It is the next natural step for mankind if we wish to ensure our survival, and not end up dying on this hot lump of rock.
Of course, I have no illusion this would ever be embraced. But it is a fun dream.0 Thanks, 0 Likes, 0 Dislikes
