time belongs to the Earth, not technology !

Regarding the retention of leap second in UTC, I have no hope some concrete plans will emerge in 2023 leading to a future-proof reference time-scale. Assuming scientists and engineers are smart enough to accomplish their task, there is a need to allow 10 years for the transition. That is to say, leap second will continue to stay with us for at least 18 more years.

My view is that it is a waste of time to continue studies on this issue.  From 2000 to 2023, 23 years would have been used up.   My advice to scientists and engineers is given below:

"Time belongs to the Earth, not technology (時間是屬於地球的,而不是屬於科技的)"
