Exactly. Blind faith that "future" technology will save the day is not much better than any other kind of faith.

What you call "law" is also bound up with politics and corporate lobbying. Last year Mozilla was was fuming about Apple foisting Safari 3.1 on Windows users. And so it goes. Yawn.

Public pressure forced the U of Chicago to rethink the sale of Yerkes, but the University of Toronto is determined to sell the David Dunlap Observatory to the highest bidder. Bids will be accepted until February 15 through an RFP process. The DDO sale has generated a firestorm of protest by stirring up area residents, the local naturalists group and amateur and professional astronomers. Collectively, they have written hundreds of letters, planned rallies and petitions, but so far U of T has refused to reconsider the sale.
For a public institution, U of T has been heavy-handed in conducting the sale. They never consulted with local residents or the astronomers who work at the facility and are even contesting the Town of Richmond Hill's attempt to designate the property as a heritage site. In December 2007, it came to light that U of T threatened to sue the Dunlap family in order to force them to agree to the sale of the land.
Essentially, the DDO has become a large urban park in the center of the town that grew up around it and area residents and astronomers would like to preserve both the telescope and the natural heritage of the land itself. The question is: should universities fund cutting-edge research by selling off large tracts of donated land to developers, thereby contributing to urban sprawl, increased traffic, noise, pollution and greenhouse gases?"
