Well Calibveliever if they can get that up and running - and then give the people free energy for their basic needs, then sure. But I don't want to see the moon raped by mining companies as the Earth has been. No.

There are many resources on the moon and many elements to be harvested, much to be explored, its just a matter of money, politics and time.

I dont think its a waste of money,if we are eventually go to the stars we have to start somewhere,and the moon is ideal as a forward base.We cannot stay here forever as resources ie:- minerals, food for billions,will become exhausted sooner than later.

Plus it would be ideal for getting experience in preparation for long term expeditions to, e.g.,  Mars.

If you can put put enough resources on the moon, and the moon is not affect as much because of its lack of atmosphere you might be able to "ride out" any calamity that might happen on earth like the proverbial "pole shift" and return to repopulate the earth a few years after the dust and waters have settled.

No need to thank me - but I will be well past my "sell by date" when it happens as well. Nevertheless, the idea is still intriguing to me.

There is not going to be any sudden pole shift that would kill off the population of the Earth. As long as we have a magnetic field to protect us space dangers, we are fine. It doesn't really matter where the magnetic South and North poles are, as long as they are there. And it happens slowly anyways.

Any thoughts to the contrary is born our of ignorance.
