Yes, I can hear the environmentalists wailing and caring on already, and we haven’t even gotten there yet. That is to say I can see environmentalists being quite upset that people will build speedboats, and do sport boating on the oceans of other planets and their moons. Surely, in the future there will be humans with colonies on other celestial bodies, other than this current pale blue dot that they reside.
With giant oceans, like the ones we have on Earth, you can bet that humans will be floating boats and vessels on top of this water. And not just water oceans, but also oceans made of other liquids. If the planet is warm, those oceans will remain liquid, rather than become frozen. If you’ve ever been to any of the great jet boat races in the United States such as those in Marble Falls, TX and Lewiston, ID then you realize what an incredible sport it really is.
It will be hard for humans to resist their need for speed, and their love of water on any planet they travel to. Will this disrupt the environment on those celestial bodies? Will it bother the species that already live there? Will it change the dynamics of the water, algae growth, bacteria, and other organisms? It may indeed, and that is something you will have to think about.
