A comic with two characters: a girl wearing a yellow shirt with a star on it, and a funny cartoon polar bear. Character 1 says: 'Human civilization has already changed the climate and caused mass extinctions. To save our beautiful planet before it's too late we must...' Character 2 says: 'Reduce consumption? Build things to last? Completely change the industry, transport, and energy systems?' Character 1 says: 'Colonise other planets!' Character 2 says: 'Please tell me you're joking.' Character 1 says: 'We have no choice! The Earth is over- populated. Our destiny lies in the stars!' Character 2 says: 'Sure, right. Whatever.' Character 1 says: 'We can do it! We've already sent people to the moon. With the proper funding we could get to Mars within a decade!' Character 2 says: 'Sure, but what do you think you're going to breathe, eat, and drink when you get there?' Character 1 says: 'We'll have to terraform the planets we colonize.' Character 2 says: 'You people can't run even run a sustainable life-cycle here on Earth, but you think you can hack it on some freezing, barren, poisonous rock?'

Our destiny lies in the stars!
