Just curious but why is this in the 'conspiracy' forum...?
It's more in the line of speculative science .

I feel the Rare Earth hypotheses is being jumped on by people genuinely fearful of climate change to advance the argument of how precious our planet is.

yes, it has taken an incredible process of luck, disaster, time and opportunity for ‘intelligent’ life to evolve on this planet, but the universe is larger than we can comprehend and such processes will have played themselves out over and over for aeons.

furthermore, there could be a planet relatively close-by where the human-like inhabitants are akin to neothlthic hunter gatherers and so won’t be advertising their presence any day soon.
