Let’s repair the Earth before searching for other planets
Please refer to your article Nasa’s new planet-hunter to seek Earth-like worlds (April 15). Humanity should stop wasting all this money on searching for an “Earth-like” planet and instead use all those billions of dollars to save and repair the Earth that we actually live on.
It pains me that we have been such terrible caretakers of this unique and beautiful planet. And yet we keep searching outside when we should be looking within.
Every parent should be concerned now about the state of the planet we are going to bequeath to our children and future generations. Robert Castro, Dubai
