"I would have to follow up with you on that, Mr. Gomert."

    Look, if it's not the Bureau of Lunar Management's job to do this, who's is it then? You tell me. You tell me.

    “Could you reverse climate change by altering the moon’s orbit?” would be an awesome question for junior high science teachers to ask their classes. The sharper students could probably come up with a counter proof in a few minutes. No need to even evaluate any hazardous side effects like species extinction.

    I may have reduced my interest in Earth Paving as I got older and more sensitive to smog, but how dare you imply I would ever attach to the heresy of Moon Chroming!?

    (yes, a 25 year old obscure USENET reference. What of it?)

    It’s probably a good idea in this day and again to spell out “Bureau of Land Management” completely. It wouldn’t surprised me if there really was a right-wing conspiracy theory floating around claiming that Black Lives Matter was trying to disrupt the planet’s orbit.

    The King of Sweden might know someone who can help him.

    I hope she included that advice in her followup. It's worth a shot?
