I don't give a damn about the Delta Smelt when people are losing everything they have... but we don't need to ruin the moon. Nobody does IMO.

I actually just saw a documentary yesterday on this topic somewhat. It was about how people in western California and people in Nevada who are
starting to run out of water. And of course the topic of the Delta Smelt was brought up along with it briefly. People were outraged that we are trying
to save some insignificant fish. But it's a little more than just saving some fish. There's a larger more complex issue in the shadows that is not
getting the attention it needs.
It's trying to point out that we humans are at and surpassing our carrying capacity. People around the world are having more and more difficulty
trying to obtain clean water. And many other materials/resources along with it. Yes, water is vital for living, and Californian farmers need water in
order to farm with. Especially since California is a big farming area in the U.S.
But we humans are taking the planet for granted and we're trying to suck everything out too fast to the point of being flat out irresponsible and
destructive. And now we have people who want to try and extract materials from the moon or try to inhabit other worlds simply because we view our
planet isn't keeping up with our own pace. And that is not a very good plan at all. We shouldn't have to move away and from this planet simply
because we can't take care of it.
However, I do believe we should branch out to other worlds if possible. Because our planet will not be around forever, it's just the way it is. Sure,
it most likely won't be for a very, very long time, but it won't be around forever. As long as we can keep any inhabited areas humans end up
venturing to in good shape, if it even happens, then I am all for it. But, if we can't do that, then I don't want to see people use territories for
their own expense, and use it as a money generator. It's just too greedy and selfish. And it's a very bad example to instill and uphold in the
public. As the saying goes "Don't s**t where you eat."
