Aliens may destroy humanity to protect other civilisations, say scientists
Rising greenhouse emissions may tip off aliens that we are a rapidly expanding threat, warns a report for Nasa
It may not rank as the most compelling reason to curb greenhouse gases, but reducing our emissions might just save humanity from a pre-emptive alien attack, scientists claim.
Watching from afar, extraterrestrial beings might view changes in Earth's atmosphere as symptomatic of a civilisation growing out of control – and take drastic action to keep us from becoming a more serious threat, the researchers explain.
This highly speculative scenario is one of several described by scientists at Nasa and Pennsylvania State University that, while considered unlikely, they say could play out were humans and alien life to make contact at some point in the future.
Shawn Domagal-Goldman of Nasa's Planetary Science Division and his colleagues compiled a list of plausible outcomes that could unfold in the aftermath of a close encounter, to help humanity "prepare for actual contact".
In their report, Would Contact with Extraterrestrials Benefit or Harm Humanity? A Scenario Analysis, the researchers divide alien contacts into three broad categories: beneficial, neutral or harmful.
"NASA now pandering to UFO believers to sell global warming hoax ... " Thought this was a joke, but I think they got the idea from one of those 'contact' sites. There's one where the chief medium/communicator-with-aliens-person was saying something like this only in a lot more flowery prose. Only he/she didn't go as far as suggesting us miserable earthlings were threatening anyone else in the universe ...ReplyDelete

They are merely returning to their roots: Whitley Strieber, author of "Communion", co-wrote "The Day After Tomorrow" that popularized catastrophic anthropogenic global warming. Apparently the aliens continuously abduct him and show him the earth blowing up due to humans destroying the environment.
Funny poster! Absolute favorite movie of all time! Mars Attacks! I feel like earth knows about aliens and aliens know a lot more about earth then us. UFOS and Aliens are real.ReplyDelete
