Pack your bags, we're moving! Scientists say Earth is uninhabitable Comments

You might want to sit down for this, we have some bad news for you and your property value. According to our finest boffins, Earth is uninhabitable. It's tragic because Earth is where we live and keep all of our stuff, so it's hard to say what we're going to do with ourselves now. Continue Reading

    OK, look. I'll try and use small words here; The habitable zone goes from the inner, warm boundary to the outer, cold boundary. From in to out. Got it? Now, "out"-side (away from the sun) of the warm, inner boundary is, actually, inside the zone. The inner boundary has been redefined from 95% of the Earth's orbit to 99% of it. And the outer boundary is way out at 170% of the Earth's orbit. Thus 100% is, indeed, contained within the range of 99-170%.

    Please try and get someone with a basic grasp of the English language - if not, heavens forbid, science - to proofread.

    Not understanding science and twisting someone's words while reporting them is the surest path to making yourself look like a fool

    Since when does being outside of the "ideal" zone mean uninhabitable?

    Penn state are the same people who claim Michael Mann's fake hockey stick is real math and that his "It's always hotter even when it's cooler!" is actually legitimate research.

    Penn State is a hotbed of scamming crime.

    This is a misleading article. Read the Penn State paper and you will see that Earth is right on the edge. In addition, it is known that habitable planets can exist outside of these ranges due to things like volcanoes and clouds and what-not, however this range is the best that we have since we cannot see these features. It is also not clear what the error is on this measurement.

    That's (above) a weird belief, nominal Roman Catholicism notwithstanding, because technically, every planet in the solar system would then be deemed uninhabitable after such a finding. Is it the planetary habitable orbital boundary definition that is possibly skewed, or has the planet somehow shifted in orbit?
