Submission + - Scottish Academic: Mining the Moon for Helium 3 is Evil (yahoo.com)

MarkWhittington writes: Tony Milligan is a teaching fellow of philosophy at the University of Aberdeen and is apparently concerned about helium 3 mining on the moon. In a recent paper he suggested that it should not be allowed for a number of reasons which include environmental objections, his belief that the moon is a cultural artifact, and that too much access to energy would be bad for the human race. The objections, on close examination, seem absurd.
