“It’s a barren wasteland named after a god of war. Sure, go there.”

Elon Musk’s SpaceX headquarters received a little surprise on Earth Day in the form of a “Mars sucks” billboard. The billboard was set up by the creative company Activista LA for its Mars Sucks Project — a project meant to bring awareness to environmental concerns of the planet Earth rather than having Mars set up as our backup planet.

Expressed as a satirical comment penned by Earth, the site reads:

Its weather sucks. Its distance sucks. Its atmosphere sucks. The little water it has, sucks.

It has sucked for billions of years. And will suck for billions more.

You know what doesn’t suck? Me, Earth.

I have life. I have vast oceans and lush forests. I have rivers to swim. Air to breathe.

But the way I’m being treated, that part sucks.

You use me and pollute me. You overheat me. You use every resource I have and return very little back from where it came.

And then, you dream of Mars. A hellhole. A barren, desolate, wasteland you can’t set foot on fast enough.

Why not use some of that creative energy and billions on saving me? You know, the planet that’s giving you what you need to live right now.

Mars can wait. I can’t.

At the bottom of the Mars Sucks Project’s page, several links to environmental groups like Greenpeace, World Wildlife, and SURFRIDER, can be found along with other whimsical jabs like, “a year on Mars lasts 687 days. So, it’s the same shit, different day for nearly twice as long.”

In other news, Tesla’s solar panels and Powerwall batteries will be bundled together.
