There is enough raw material in the oort cloud to make 1000 earths. If these alien civilizations came to our solar system looking for resources they most likely wouldn't make it past the asteroid belt.
In conclusion, the idea that contact with an intelligent space faring civilization would somehow mean the end of our civilization is ludicrous. It is Hollywood driven imagining. When you think about it critically there is absolutely no logical reason for another civilization to wipe us out.
