“Earth Day” Adoption : NASA

NASA is offering people the chance to ‘adopt’ their very own piece of Earth, having sectioned off the planet into 64,000 individual segments that are up for adoption right now.

Logically speaking the same humans who “really messed it up” are now offering up earth for adoption, therefore, it dictates the offer of adoption will also end “really messed” up. And it will become “really messed” up because mankind keeps demanding all the wrong saviors.

While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.  But you, brothers, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief.  (1 Thessalonians 5:3-4)

Lesson: Those who follow close to Jesus will never be taken by surprise when Earth Day collapses in on itself because we are not “in darkness.”

Bonus: Oh, that NASA and followers would go pick up litter instead of all this meaningless (expensive) talk. Such is part of the problem – men love to talk but not walk the walk. Thank God the Jesus whom I labor for, at what He gives me to do, is not a bunch of talk : For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power.  (1 Corinthians 4:20)

(sciencealert.com)—NASA is offering people the chance to ‘adopt’ their very own piece of Earth, having sectioned off the planet into 64,000 individual segments that are up for adoption right now.

The virtual adoption drive – which you can take part in here – is the space agency’s way of observing Earth Day 2017, which is coming up on April 22.

Earth Day is an annual event designed to raise public awareness of environmental issues, and frankly there’s never been a better time to become a custodian of our precious blue orb, even if it’s only in a virtual capacity.

While NASA’s adoption process is purely metaphorical – with no strings or legal ownership attached – the fact of the matter is that the planet desperately needs a caregiver to look after it.

If you simply provide your name here, the space agency will randomly designate one of 64,000 locations on Earth to your virtual care.

Once you’ve signed up, you’ll be given your virtual adoption certificate for your unique, numbered patch of turf (or, more likely, water), with the ability to view a range of NASA data about your location, such as temperature, vegetation, and atmospheric details.

You can view your adopted spot on NASA’s Worldview satellite imagery service, plus explore other parts of the planet.

I got a pretty blue (read: entirely water-filled) expanse of the South Pacific. To be honest, I was kind of hoping for some solid land mass to virtually nurture, but hey, water’s a pretty important thing, right? In any case, Earth adopters can’t be choosers.
