Scientists have spotted another planet that is very similar to our dear Earth. Rachael sent me the news by text. Lately she has been showing a lot of interest in the world around us. But she’s received this latest piece of news with a little disdain. She wrote to me, “Another attempt to fool us!” I can understand her cynicism.
Every other time scientists came up with such news items and nothing came of it. Adrian thinks they equate each discovery with finding another earth because that gets them the buzz. “Who cares about another Earth when we are trying desperately to save our own?” he said. Now, don’t be surprised. That’s the new, globally conscious Adrian speaking! Do you share Adrian’s and Rachael’s cynicism? Is it all hype to get the buzz going?
