If we're concerned about consuming Helium to depletion, why dont we encourage a few comets to impact, loaded with interstellar replenishment?

They could impact Saudi, Yemen , Iran or Wales for ease of access & disposable populations.

    You trashed all possibility of anyone thinking you're remotely funny, all because you thought you could get a good laugh out of mentioning Wales.

      But your well considered retort defends those that I flippantly selected for celestial impact.
      I apologize to all Welshers & will spend time in Llandudno on holiday as usual, hopefully without fear of reprisal.

    Helium is produced constantly by radioactive decay inside the Earth.  No danger of using it up as long as we drill for it.

    What is rare is He+3, or the isotope helium 3, which is a very small part of helium.  It seems there might be some of it on the Moon.

    So you want to destroy all life on the planet for some helium.  Not a lot of neurons firing there sparky

    Any comet that hits the Earth anywhere would cause global destruction.

    • That would eliminate all worries about the helium supply situation.

    Helium comes from radioactive decay. Comets, and asteroids would have little, do to constant outgassing.

    Plus, you're recommending mass murder.
