Cruise Ship Earth blog

The technological and scientific capabilities of human mammals have reached a level at which their home, planet Earth, can soon become to them the equivalent of a planetary cruise ship. It is a very complex ship. Yet it is one for which they can attempt to decipher its operating manual. Likely even contribute to it. IMHO this puts human mammals in a position that they need to select their role on the planetary cruise ship. Passenger? Crew member? Cruise director? Captain? In this blog your deckreporter provides monthly lighthearted musings taking the cruise ship perspective. The blog is part of WeAreCruiseShipEarth.org
