Harrison Schmitt on Moon-Mars: "Dispersal of Human Species Throughout the Solar System — And Possibly Beyond"

Harrison Schmitt, the last human being to walk on the Moon, and perhaps the most insightful spokesman for the space program, told The Telegraph this week that the "Moon and Mars settlement is extremely important for the dispersal of the human species throughout the solar system,, and possibly beyond." As did the Schiller Institute conference last Saturday, on the 50th anniversary of the Apollo Moon landing, which was titled: MANKIND'S FUTURE MUST DETERMINE OUR PRESENT: A Dialogue of Cultures on How to Develop the Population and the Productive Workforce for Earths Next Fifty Years," so also Harrison Schmitt addressed the "100th anniversary of Apollo," saying that at that time "there will be settlements on the Moon, people living there permanently, producing the resources of the Moon.... Settlements on the Moon are going to be a piece of cake."

This is the truthful optimism required to break through the deadly cult of lies and pessimism peddled by the Green New Deal, the promoters of the anthropomorphic climate change hoax, trying to convince demoralized citizens — especially the youth — that the world is doomed if industrial progress is not reversed, and the population is not reduced to the one (or less) billion people, the supposed "carrying capacity" of our Earth. This is, of course, a lie — our Earth can easily provide sustenance and productive employment for many multiples of the current paltry world population of less than eight billion. But, as Helga Zepp-LaRouche has noted, how can anyone gaze at the Heavens, knowing that there are an estimated two trillion galaxies out there, in our "finite but unbounded universe" (as Einstein discovered), and imagine that there are any limits to our growth or population potential?

It is not coincidental that Harrison Schmitt is also the co-founder of the CO2 Coalition, with Dr. William Happer, Professor Emeritus in the Department of Physics at Princeton University, insisting that the "myth" that CO2 causes climate change, or that it is a hazardous pollutant, is "both unscientific and immoral to perpetuate."

It is our task, as human beings, to refute such modern versions of Chicken Little, as no better than the character of that nursery rhyme, which helped children discover for themselves that, indeed, the sky was not falling. And it must be refuted quickly. As the Deutsche Bank ongoing collapse testifies, the substitution of wind mills and solar panels for nuclear and fusion power will not only fail to get us to the Moon, but it will also destroy the scientific progress necessary to increase the power of the human productive platform required to sustain human existence. The likes of the new President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, who intends to make Europe "carbon neutral" by 2050, would instead drive a rapid depopulation of the Earth, economic chaos and war. Such lunacy, and especially the child abuse being committed against our children — who are being told that there is no use to go to school, or to have children, since the world will be destroyed in 12 years through global warming — must be identified for the genocidal intention behind the lies.

At the same time, the beautiful future that is on the agenda for the next 50 years under the implementation of LaRouche's Four Laws, with the United States joining with China and Russia in the Belt and Road development of the formerly colonized nations, and in space exploration, and in creating a new world creditary system to make this possible — all this is both possible and absolutely essential.

The British coup attempt against President Trump is being exposed today, before the world, as the pathetic Robert Mueller, the hit man who imprisoned Lyndon LaRouche in the 1980s, and tried to repeat the process against President Trump, appeared before the Congress. Even several of those Democrats demanding impeachment of the President were forced to admit that the hearings were a disaster for them. Now, if Attorney General William Barr moves expeditiously in his investigation into those who launched the entire fraudulent "Russiagate" hoax, the British plot will be exposed and destroyed for good.

Trump is close to being liberated from this treasonous operation. To finish the job, and to realize his oft-repeated intention to build friendly ties with Russia and China, ending the British imperial division of the world once and for all, requires the exoneration of Lyndon LaRouche, freeing mankind to study his profound ideas, to bring the world together in pursuit of the "extraterrestrial imperative," as Krafft Ehricke profoundly identified the true nature of Mankind.
