A science writer explains,
Our early Sun’s rate of rotation may be one reason we’re here to talk about it, astrobiologists now say. The key likely lies in the fact that between the first hundred million to the first billion years of its life, our G-dwarf star likely had a ‘Goldilocks’ rotation rate; neither too slow nor too fast.
Instead, its hypothetical ‘intermediate’ few days rate of rotation guaranteed our Sun was active enough to rid our newly-formed Earth of its inhospitable, hydrogen-rich primary atmosphere. This would have enabled a more habitable, secondary atmosphere composed of nitrogen, carbon dioxide, hydrogen and oxygen to eventually form.

It’s amazing how much literature gets written to disconfirm the fine-tuning of our position for life. One wonders what the response at Forbes will be.

It’s not clear that, in Barash’s line of work, one needs to know much new stuff, as opposed to just keeping the old buzz going.
