Climate Change? No. Space Pirates? Yes, According to Ted Cruz.

The most paramount concern to our future in space is Space Pirates, according to United States Senator, Ted Cruz. 

Cruz has adamantly been against the fact that the world is warming as a direct result of humanity's carbon footprint, yet thinks that with the ever-increasing possibilities in space the US will need a Space Force to deter hypothetical Astro scurvy-ridden space no-gooders.

“Since the ancient Greeks first put to sea, nations have recognized the necessity of naval forces and maintaining a superior capability to protect waterborne travel and commerce from bad actors,” Cruz told the crowd during a hearing in Washington this week.

"Pirates threaten the open seas – and the same is possible in space.”

While it is entirely possible for space pirates to menace the space directly over Earth, it is by far the least of our most pressing issues to account for. 

The more important is clearly climate change, something the senator refuses to entertain and has equated to as valid as the Flat Earth Theory, and more on topic is the threat of rival nations in space, not space bound, independent privateers.

The likelihood of Space Force going forward has hit its share of speed bumps, with the price tag for the venture being way over initial estimations by billions, plural.
