A Not So Rare Earth?

“If being green was easy (and obscenely profitable!!) even Monsanto and the Koch brothers might try it.” – LLF

Did you see they’ve discovered another system with Earth-like planets in it? It’s looking as if we may not be the only game in the universe. Still, they think that one’s something like 1200 light-years away– about 7.2 quadrillion miles. That’s one heck of a road trip. I could run out of music! So even if it’s not unique, this is still a nice little planet, and it’s been pretty good to us. And it’s right here. Hope we will do our best to take care of it.

About l. l. frederick

I'm pretty ordinary, so I find any number of things in the world interesting, among them: books, music, flowers, food, social justice, politics and (sometimes!) people. As for my writing, I've decided that I can be subtle and tasteful when our only problems are esthetic ones. Or when I'm dead, whichever comes first. In the meantime, read at your own risk.
