Scientists want to demote Pluto to being a non planet because it doesn't clear the vicinity of it's orbit of debris.

Yet they don't mind claiming that they've found 400+ planets around other stars, despite the fact that they have no way to know if those planets have cleared debris from their orbits.

They are using a double standard, preferring an esoteric definition of a planet in this solar system which arbitrarily allows them to impose a new definition of a planet on non scientists, while they claim credit for discovering new planets that needn't meet those definitions in other solar systems.

MORE scientific hypocrisy!
