"Sometimes you can see how there is erosion, and you can see how there is deforestation. It's very widespread in some parts of the world," Collins said in a conversation from space with Japanese officials in Tokyo, including Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi. "We would like to see, from the astronauts' point of view, people take good care of the Earth and replace the resources that have been used," said Collins, who was standing with Japanese astronaut Soichi Noguchi in front of a Japanese flag and holding a colorful fan. Collins, flying her fourth shuttle mission, said the view from space made clear that Earth's atmosphere must be protected, too. "The atmosphere almost looks like an eggshell on an egg, it's so very thin," she said. "We know that we don't have much air, we need to protect what we have."

Yeah, spending trillions and probes that don't work and shuttles that blow up is really going to help the environment. Maybe NASA should use thier white collar welfare money to buy more trashcans or something.

"how is erosion our fault?" Depends on the area. Where there were once grasslands and trees, their root systems held the soil together. When they are cut down and burned out, it allows for the soil to be carried about by flood and rain water.

"Astronauts seemed cooler in the 60's and 70's because they weren't telling you that you had to do some work and maybe try and consume less shit in a given day. now that everyone is smarter, we're realizing these things. people don't like being told to consume less and to try and pollute as little as possible. it involves changes in lifestyle that are seen as "difficult" and lot of males feel those changes are emasculating. I'm not sure why." Not the resaon i was thinking at all.

Gee, an astronaut goes into space and can see the obvious destruction of the environment. Conclusion: she is a crazy hippy.

Astronauts were cooler because for the most part, they were test pilots or fighter pilots. They weren't nerds.

Patk nailed it. Much respect to todays astronauts, but NASA needs to recapture the image of a few decades ago IMO. The soccer mom aint doing it for me.
