Seems to be non-existent here and over where the article is posted, judging by the comments.
While this is certainly just a theory, it has "some" merit.
The author says basically that the problem is that intelligent life may well develop on many planets, however due to "climate change" IN THIS CASE THAT STARS BECOME HOTTER, the planet at some point becomes inhabitable so that a civilization may have died out again before they were able to develop interstellar space travel.
While I don't necessarily agree with this, this speculation itself is more than justified.
I can't help to think that many read "climate change" and didn't even bother to read WHAT exactly the article is about. Typical.

Just ANOTHER excuse to put the words "Climate change" into peoples heads!
Who was it that said "Speak a lie often enough and it becomes truth?

Most stars are binary anyway, some systems have three stars, must be damn awkward for planets to get and keep water, air, microbes, plants, etc., so I think stars like ours, slightly bigger than average G's, are few and far between, plus just what are the odds of a Goldilocks planet around a supportive star?
Just why are most systems binary anyway?

Didn't know where to put this. Either Aliens and UFO's or Frigile Earth.
What the hell do people think sometimes? Aliens won't come here or vice versa because of the effing climate change? GAWD....

Firstly, we haven't made contact with alien civilizations therefore you cannot even say global warming will prevent contact with them.
Secondly, what if we cannot contact alien civilizations (if they exist) because THEY are experiencing global warming themselves??????
