Greta Thunberg’s ad about settling Mars meets Don Draper

Greta Thunberg is either a pint-sized warrior for the environment or the most annoying teenager on the planet for her tireless advocacy for the mitigation of climate change. In her latest foray in service to that cause, Ms. Thunberg’s Fridays for Future campaign released a “satirical ad” that is said to slam the idea of exploring and settling Mars while climate change still threatens the Earth, according to Futurism. The ad dropped, not coincidentally, about the same day NASA’s Perseverance rover landed on Mars.

Oddly, it was a liberal friend who introduced me to Rush Limbaugh back in 1990, when the conservative radio talker was just getting started. When I started listening to him, I remember feeling thunderstruck that such a man was allowed to say the sort of things he was saying on the air. I had never heard his like before.
