If these jerks are so interested in our well being or the well being of the planet then they need to stop messing around. They need to show
themselves, land on the white house lawn (or Paris or London or New Delhi. I don’t really give a rat’s behind WHERE, just DO IT! No, we’re not
going to shoot you down. I thought you guys could handle it, anyway. Make sure the cameras are there.
And if they tell us, look, humans, you gotta go to solar power in ten years. You already know how to do it. You have the technology. You have to phase
out carbon. So here’s the plan. You go to solar and we’ll let you into the Galactic Federation and give you lots of cool stuff. Given a generation
you’ll all be rich as hell and nobody starves. Humanity no longer suffers and everyone’s happy. Deal?
These statements are really contradictory. Just by calling an alien who I might add is far more advanced than any human on earth, comes from who
knows how many light years away and has technology few people could fathom a jerk?. Thats a bold comment to say THE LEAST on that remark.
When will you wake to the fact that humans are creating their own demise. Money hungry, dictatorial governments who CREATE hunger, CREATE poverty,
CREATE wars and DESTRUCTION, CREATE mistrust among its own people. Whether you like it or not these are humanities problems. No alien is going to
give earth a "manual" on how to fix earth when earth is in the state thats its in and especially when "they" had nothing to do with it.
In that case we should be helping them colonize planets and fight interracial wars if you want to be fair about it, but thats right it has nothing to
do with us so we do nothing......hmmmm hypocrisy and irony at work.
Maybe the aliens gave up on humanity because earth has yet to prove its serious about changing, look at earth today shifting temperatures and constant
fossil fuels pumped into the air daily and we say smell the fresh air, its intoxicated. Bush says he wants freedom when he pushes for "democracy in
iraq" he must of forgot to mention that democracy included killing innocent people for his addiction to "texas tea".
Based on your scenario, these aliens landed on the front lawn of the white house with media and cameras rolling and you were offered a chance to ask
them (as an example) something like this to them:
"We the people of Earth in appreciation ask your assistance in aiding us to better ourselves for the good of the human race and earth with your vast
knowledge and wisdom we would like to extend this offer?".
And in your excitement awaiting there response shockingly they would say "You are requesting us to help the human race in a way it is yet incapable
in its own right of achieving. We wont help you until you can help yourselves"
Have a long hard think about this when you see the global picture, its true. And to add to that scenario aliens only telepathically communicate
unless you can understand random vocal "tick tock" sounds. So the microphones would be useless.
