Naw, I don't recall well enough to 'prove' man was thinking to blow up the moon, but the ideas at that time were to waste it and settle the tides, which somehow would create a more temperate weather for earth.
Now I might be dumber than a box of clams, but I am not about to make that sort of idea up. If you want to hunt start with Nasa.
At that time I didn't like the idea, and if it was the idea for now I still wouldn't like it.
And while you may consider me a fool, which i can be, I sort of consider modern man a fool as well, so everyone gets equal in being a fool if you ask me. The main difference is I allow my self to be a fool, do you?
But yes there was a time maybe in the late 70's mid 80's where I think it was NASA that indeed wanted to blow up the moon.
Man is water, with no water there is no man.... I hope I don't live so long to see water leave Earth, but if it does somehow happen, we will all be in the same boat and right out of water. There will be a day when this does happen, but no one alive now will see it.
I ran a little google, and found a part of the story here
These are after when i first heard of this lunarcy
But I didn't make it up, I just wish I was that smart.

Stabilizing our Weather by Destroying the Moon
A University professor has a moonstruck solution to the Earth's
weather problems. He wants to blow up the moon - or at least send
it somewhere else.
"It's the only way to rid the world of scorching deserts and artic
winters," says Professor Alexander Abian, a mathematician at the
University of Iowa. He claims that by getting rid of the moon, the
Earth will then be able to shift into a "more desirable orbit."
The suggestion which has been greeted with hoots and hollers from
the world's scientific community, has been presented by the 65-year
old Armenian-born expert to the American government.
Abian suggests strategically placed hydrogen bombs on the Earth's
satellite can either blow it apart, or send it careening into outer
space, maybe even into the sun. It all depends where you put the
charges, he says.
"We've been held hostage by the moon for 5 million years, and we've
been subjected to violent extremes in weather, not to mention that
the planet is slowly becoming a desert.
"It's time for a change." The change would make our weather less
extreme, turn our deserts into fertile farm land, and make the north
and south polar regions livable.
But other scientists disagree, suggesting the professor might be
moonstruck. "If you lose the moon, you LOSE THE TIDES. And if you
melt the polar caps, you're going to flood the seacosts of every
continent," one scientist explains.
Another climate expert says blowing up the moon would turn Earth
into "a bleak, seasonless planet, not to mention the fact that we
would lose the tides."
British astronomer Patrick Moore suggests Professor Abian "must be
as nutty as several fruitcakes."
Famed romance writer Barbara Cartland offers the best argument
against Abian's plan. Without moonlight, she says, love would flee
the Earth. "People long for romance and no professor should be
allowed to rob them of it," she says.
