Let’s imagine there was an galactic estate agent wanting to entice buyers for our planet Earth. What type of coded estate agent patter might be included in the brochure?
Mid-size planet about 2/3rds of the way out from the centre galaxy. Close to energy source with 4 billion years remaining and quiet neighbouring planets. Be spoke moon provides lovely night time cosmic setting.
13 billion hectares of land, much of which can be over-mined or even continue to be undermined as amazingly no solar system planning permission or penalties exist. Parts of this plant are over-run with 7.5 billion sitting tenants but they shall soon engineer their own demise.
This charming planet has great restoration opportunities for 2-3 billion hectares of land for buyers with significant resources. Serious bids considered only – no frivolous pledgers entertained.”
