Since the last report our cruise ship Earth has journeyed at least 150 million kilometers, alongside its mothership Sun, in the direction of the G Cloud. In that period your reporter used his spare time to develop a new business case, together with partners:
WeAreCruiseShipEarth is a non-profit organisation that sells carerights for plots on Earth to raise funding for research into the long-term future habitability of this planetary cruise ship. Your reporter is member of the organisation and contributes with his expertise on the astrophysical limits to that habitability.
Earth itself features as planetary cruise ship no. 249 in the sales catalog of planetary cruise ship models by WeAreCruiseShipEarth. This ship is in reasonable condition (see here for pics of the ship and cruise). Cruise ship operations have been fully long-term sustainable, with a slight exception in the last ~0.003% of its trip. WeAreCruiseShipEarth sells carerights for plots on Earth to fund research helping to return it to fully long-term sustainable operations. This return has an estimated cost to completion of 18000 billion euros (indexed to 2021). Stocks of carerights are publicly offered to any lifeform, both Earth-based or alien. Careright deals start already at €4.14 for plots of over 10 square centimeters. Carerights are entrusted in the understanding that the caretaker will adhere to the guidelines for careright of planetary cruise ships to the best of caretaker’s capabilities. The team at WeAreCruiseShipEarth estimates that half of the human population of 8 billion is prepared to adhere to the guidelines. For this reason the price of one full stock is set at €4,350.00. So one stock provides the careright to 1/4 of a billionth of Earth’s surface, which is 1.23 square meters. With a price-to-book ratio of over 15 this offering is an extremely good bargain.
