This is kind of related to LURCH's topic but I thought I would make a new one because it isnt relaly about malaria but a variety of diseases. First off there is West Nile and Malaria and second off Mosquitoes are the only living thing found on all continents (except Antartica) So that means that if we dont fight these diseases off quick enough the human race could be destroyed by whats possibly the most annoying insect on the planet. My question to start the thread is this. How do you think the diseases and mosquitoes could be stopped and what do you think us humans would do if we could not stop them and the diseases that spread with them? Go to another planet (like colonizing mars) Go to the moon? I read an article that said it would be fairly easy to set up a base there where people good live and it would be good if it even had to server has a temporary base (lets face it the ISS is too small for many people and the moon is pretty close compared to mars) He is another idea of mine that you my find interesting. What if humans went down instead of up? We good make enormous bases in the ocean. Mobile or permanent. It would still be home to us and since it would be easy and convenient mroe people could be saved if that ever happened. Also, scientists could work on a cure and stop the disease. If it was a mobile base I would think that submarines except in a gigantic form could be made. If it was permanent it could be dug into the ocean floor or into caves in the ocean. What do you think of my ideas? And what do you think of the questinos i asked: How do you think the diseases and mosquitoes could be stopped and what do you think us humans would do if we could not stop them and the diseases that spread with them?
