There are advantages to living underground. For one thing, no one would worry about the weather. The temperature could be held at a fairly constant
level, between 55 and 60 degrees F, and a lot of energy used for heating and cooling could be saved. Without the diurnal sun cycle, no one would know
day from night. People could be working around the clock or playing around the clock, depending on their penchant. All transportation, communication,
and housing could go underground, freeing the surface world from human trampling. The surface of the planet would have a few nice restaurants and
recreation centers where people could observe clear blue skies, the returning planet and animal life, and have room for all to roam on a weekend hike.
Earthquakes would cause only one-fifth the damage to underground structures that they cause to surface structures.
