I see zero link between the 2, but I'll play along: I'd argue that if aliens are peaceful and we have alien tech, the reason the governments won't
release it to fix global warming is because...they make too much money from the system we have in place now, being obsessed with fossil fuels.
For example, it's a lot easier for the government to tax oil, fluctuate the prices of it, etc, than it would be to tax solar energy and fluctuate the
prices of it. Say a person has to buy solar panels once every 20ish years (that's just an example, I have no idea how often it actually is); then
they wouldn't pay for fossil fuel energy for the next 20 years at least. That doesn't fly with our current government because fossil fuels are too
important to their financiers.
Get rid of the government that relies on fossil fuels to become billionaires, and then the tech can advance/be released/whatever.
Personally, I think we need to make big advances in the energy sector in the near future. I've never understood any argument against moving towards
more green technology, except for "I don't like change". There's zero downside. If climate change turns out to be a big hoax (I don't believe it's a
hoax but I know some people do), what harm would be caused by becoming more green?
Imagine someone who eats a terrible diet, but then decides to start eating a Mediterranean Diet, commonly seen by experts as being one of the
healthiest diets on the planet. Sure, nothing negative may have happened to them if they continued to eat a terrible diet (although it very well
could have), but what harm came from switching to a healthier diet? None, and arguably, the person is now much healthier for adopting the change.
Sure, they'll probably miss the daily double bacon cheeseburgers, but ultimately the decision most likely made them a much healthier person.
That's how I view moving to renewable energy. There really isn't a downside. Sure, some folks will miss things about using fossil fuels, but it'll
ultimately be better to move towards renewable.
