Why screw up a virgin planet when we're not done raping the one we're on?

Jeff Bezos wants to deliver shit to the moon.  Elon Musk wants his rocket to at least visit Mars. NASA has long been planning to "expand humanity's presence in the Solar System," starting with Mars.

Love the ambition. As an old science fiction freak, I salute all of them. I am convinced that the highest ambition of of our species should be to take our place in the League of Aliens. For that, these are good moves in the right direction.

But I don't think we're qualified. Not yet.
