Just because a newly discovered planet may be Earth-sized, Earth-colored, or Earth-flavored does not mean it is "Earth-like" or a "new Earth." The latest premature "It's a new Earth!" story features two planets too close to their suns to host life as we know it. I'm all for happening across another planet in a Goldilocks Zone, but quit confusing the masses! #irresponsiblejournalism
"There is no god; there is only us. Savage and fragile."
See the future of the mankind if another planet is discovered which could support life, its going to look a lot like Ireland during the absentee landlord years or the southern hemisphere during the white heat of globalisation.
