Europe Planning A Lunar Base By 2030. (Got Priorities?)

"The final words that Gene Cernan spoke before stepping on to the tiny craft that would ("allegedly") carry him back to Earth are simple and sobering:

'We leave as we came and, God willing, as we shall return with peace and hope for all mankind.'"

That was in 1972. That’s more than 40 years ago. (Again, "allegedly") We haven’t been back."

And, now, THIS...
(Cue Ominous Music)
Europe Planning to Establish Lunar Base by 2030*

*So much for the National Parks' (& other delicate natural places') advice of: 

"Take Only Pictures.  Leave Only Footprints."

Here's a Question: "Who's going to win the Lunar Landfill Contract?"
Or, will they  follow that Old Standard practiced on Mother Earth:
"Outta Sight, Outta Mind.", and just jettison their (countless tons 'o) junk into SPACE?

Also, consider how many Billions of Dollars/GBP such an endeavor will cost.  

Meanwhile...  Back here on Planet Earth:

Thousands of children are suffering from starvation; in need of medical care; without safe, non-war zone places to live; haven't safe drinking water or adequate education, etc..  And, there's so much toxic & lethal (and nuclear) waste scattered about the globe because "modern man" has been and STILL Is treating the Earth and her oceans like their own individual and collective "Magical" Bottomless Garbage Can...

But... Hey, Don't Be A 'Buzz-Kill'!

Never mind all THAT!  Having our own "Moon-Base ALPHA" Will Be So COOL!

I'm counting to 10, now... (Breathe)
