Arguments why the Earth is not a Star

Science | January 11, 2009

Just wrote an article about the possiblity of the Earth being classified as a star. It seems like a pretty crazy idea but when you look at the facts there is a case to be made for it.

I feel that the biggest argument to say we are not a star is simply because we do not radiate so brightly. Another is that we only radiate significant amounts of radiation due to human activity.

First of the two arguments is an argument about quantities which is always going to come up against some sort of grey area. The second argument , on the other hand, ignores the fact the we as humans shouldn't be so quick to think we are seperate from the world we've spawned from. How are we not to be considered part of the Earth?

We'll I guess that's a whole other debate.
