GROUPS COMPLAIN ABOUT FAIRNESS OF EARTH DAY
SAN FRANCISCO - In the wake of last months's Earth Day celebrations several groups are claiming that Earth Day is unfair to other planets. Jupiter
Advocate, Europa Stonemeadow told BNN, "We have a whole day set aside to celebrate planet Earth but we don't have anything to celebrate the other
eight planets in our solar system. That is insensitive, bigoted and wrong."
In order to combat this insensitivity planetary advocates representing Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are lobbying
Congress to enact legislation that would remedy the injustice of Earth Day. Said Stonemeadow, "We envision a future in which other planets will not be
discriminated against merely because they don't contain intelligent life. A future in which American school children will learn to acknowledge the
important achievements of other planets and not just the planet that they happen to live on. A future in which all planets will be given an equal
amount of recognition time."
Tentative dates for recognizing the other planets are under consideration and may be announced as early as next week.
