I can think of two ways to get people to live on a moon base without blue skies, oceans etc. 1) Don't give them any choice, like the first Europeans to arrive in Australia (NB, I'm not recommending this, just saying it's been done and could happen again) or 2) wait until the environment on Earth is so degraded (at least for some people) that the moon base is more attractive.

There are plenty of people now who would volunteer for such enterprises, as there are for astronaut training today. Some have been conducting experiments in mock-up bases.
