Is this a bad idea?
In anticipation of Earth Day (April 22) and in an effort to further raise awareness towards climate change, our favorite space agency has put our planet up for adoption.
Their initiative has split the Earth into 64,000 pieces and everyone is encouraged to join in on the action and register on their website to get a piece. Mind you, this adoption is virtual and users will be assigned a random piece with no legal rights to the specific region.
What you will get is a personalized certificate showing data gathered on the region by one of NASA’s Earth observing satellites.
Each certificate will show information about the carbon monoxide levels, moisture and vegetation specific to the adopted zone.
