Quick Takes: News You May Have Missed

Klein-Aaron

Holdren also collaborated with conspiracy theorist Paul Ehrlich, author of The Population Bomb, which proclaimed: “The battle to feed all of humanity is over. In the 1970s, the world will undergo famines – hundreds of millions of people are going to starve to death.”

Holdren also predicted one billion people will die in “carbon-dioxide-induced famines” in a coming new ice age by 2020. Holdren based his prediction on the theory that human emissions of carbon dioxide would produce a climate catastrophe causing global cooling. But Holdren also argued that global warming might cancel global cooling.

Meanwhile, the Planetary Resources company has pledged to mine asteroids and “create a new industry and a new definition of ‘natural resources’ ” and “help ensure humanity’s prosperity.” The company claims it will “add trillions of dollars to the global GDP.”

The question is whether the asteroid plan, including NASA’s, can actually succeed. Japan tried it in 2005, when it sent the spacecraft Hayabusa more than four billion kilometers. It twice landed on the asteroid Itokawa, broke down, came back to life after two years, and headed home with failed or malfunctioning engines.

Even if a rover lands on an asteroid, it may not find materials profitable for mining. In a special study on asteroid mining, the University of Utah pointed out that “without a sample returned from an asteroid, the evidence of mineral concentrations remains circumstantial.”
