Gaia Selene - Saving Earth by Colonizing the Moon

Today on Far Future Horizons I decided to post the following  feature documentary ~ 'GAIA SELENE'

This documentary outlines just the type of space program we need to help solve many of our earth bound problems. A Space program that is both politically and economically sustainable as well justifiable. There are two and a half ways to save the Earth and two of them are on the Moon. The half measure that remains for us on Earth is to create a society committed to conservation and creating a Zero Waste Culture totally dedicated to recovering its reusable resources.

A new technological study reveals that by the year 2050 we will need three times as much primary power and it will have to be three times as clean. There is no earthly technology now on line, or capable of coming on line by the year 2050, that can help solve our energy and environmental problems.

This is program very reminiscent of that outlined by the late 
Gerald K O'Neill's in his book 'The High Frontier: Human Colonies in Space’. O’Neill’s book emphasized the role of space colonies in building space based solar power satellites to provide earth with a safe, clean and plentiful supply of renewable energy.

Earth Scientists, Space Scientists, Futurists and Visionaries confront the major challenges facing us as a species and threatening our home planet.
How will we feed, house and employ ten billion humans by the year 2050?
What happens when the oil runs out?
The dangers of nuclear power and nuclear waste.
Our effect on the environment, the health of the planet and our fellow creatures.
By 2050 we will need three times as much power and it will have to be three times as clean.
There is no technology now on line, or capable of coming on line by the year 2050, that can solve our energy problem.
In the next hundred years, there’s a one chance in four hundred and fifty-five of a species-ending cosmic event.

But don’t worry.
We’ve developed Space Technology. We’ve developed a way to turn a cosmic threat into an asset. When we learn what we need to colonize the moon, we will be able to use that knowledge to protect ourselves and our home planet.
GAIA SELENE offers clear and do-able solutions to the crises facing us.
Space Solar Power; clean and renewable, it could replace polluting fossil fuel plants.
Lunar Solar Power; collectors crafted from lunar material could microwave power back to earth.
Power from Moon Dust; Forty tons of 3Helium in Fusion Reactors could power the U. S for a year, and would be worth 320 Billion Dollars.
We can and will do it. We have already spent a trillion dollars on space technology. Now it is time to build on what we started forty years ago.

It’s not rocket science anymore.
We don’t need to invent anything new. We can colonize the moon with current technology. In doing so, we can save the earth.
How will we live and work on the moon?
What it will be like to fly on wings in the one-sixth lunar gravity?
Why we will live in lavatubes under the surface.
How we can travel a thousand miles an hour in maglev bullet trains.
Why the Moon is a stepping stone to the Solar System, to nearby Stars, to the Future.
Emmy Award Winning Documentary Producer/Director Charles Proser presents Gaia Selene, a new documentary on the exciting New Frontier and the future of “Homo Spaciens”.
