Let’s re­pair the Earth be­fore search­ing for other plan­ets

The National - News - - OPINION -

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
