**nods** exactly.  It'd make the wait a whole lot more manageable as well.
We (humanity) can spend $1T/yr to kill/destroy/blow up each other, but we
can't spend 10% of our 'death fund' to alleviate the issues we're fighting
for?  Penny-wise/Pound-foolish.

ReTool the Military Industrial Complex to Green Energy Complex, and this big
ship would steer much more manage-ably than we realize.
It's all about priorities, and ours (humanity) are severely misguided.
