Thinking like a martian

These people are.

It's not radical. It's just chemistry. It's why martians should not be starved for energy. They shouldn't just survive they should thrive as Pournelle says, "in style."

With abundant cheap energy you can get abundant cheap fuel. Necessity is a good thing. It makes people inventive. Martians are going to teach us things it would take centuries if ever to realize on earth alone.
