Bad Weather on Earth Due to Moon Mining

The idea of mining resources in outer space is growing. I once thought this was a good idea in terms of engineering. I am beginning to think it may not be a good idea when it comes to indirect impact on Earth. The problem is that we know environments are connected. Changes to woodlands and waterways here on Earth alters the ecosystem. That impacts living things. Intentional changes people make to environments have a cost. Sometimes the price future generations have to pay are not worth the benefits gained today.
