I think Rush put us in with the tree hugger crowd by mistake. No one told him WHY LP is bad for our hobby. He thought or was not told the reason and thought it was just because. Watch, he will restate his comments on this.
Astronomers would be and should be lucky to lumped in with the "Tree huggers" and the medical community They are the only large groups who have any hope of making a dent in the relentless growth of LP. Astronomers (amateurs and pros) are too introverted and astronomy too esoteric an issue to generate the public-political support to make much difference. The fact that its a science is another strike against 'us' when the RWNs are swinging their big (mouth) sticks of the current anti-science, $$$$ driven ignorance.
