This has been discussed on the Whorl list.  It doesn't really hold up.
How could they travel to Urth if they were already there?  Also, the
gravity on Green seems similar to that of Blue.

What seems odd to me is that the Old Sun is so obviously dim and red, but
conditions on Urth are more or less normal.  I thought that even a change
in the Sun's output too small to notice by eye would lead to catastrophic
changes on Earth/Urth.

And while we're at it... is the White Fountain inside the Old Sun,
orbiting Urth, or just hanging around?
