I appreciate your response but I don’t see the move off of our planet as abandoning it. Given our population growth and uncontrolled exploitation with subsequent climate disasters increasing steadily by the year, I see this as a way to preserve the planet for our great great grandchildren. In effect we will be able to quarantine ourselves from our planet and return it to a more naturally evolving state with limitations on the population.

The underlying need as I see it is the necessity to get to the next level of civilization based on the energy resources available to us.
