Aliens may destroy humanity to protect other civilisations, say scientists


www.guardian.co.uk

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 we

This may be highly speculative but interesting none the less. Especially coming from NASA.
Yet another instance making me feel like we are being "told" something and "Prepared" for something.
It is one thing to hear this coming from GLP or some other crazy source. Unfortunately NASA has about the same credibility now that I think of it.
Bottom line is, I think we are being prepared to go thru some really interesting times here real soon and I know I'm not the only one.
Let the flame wars and the childish remarks begin!
What do you think?

Propaganda, it's like they are reading from a script. Plant the seed, watch it grow.

ETA: I learned something new today
Thanks masqua !


I will also add that this report is simply a scenario analysis.

No real aliens. No real UFOs. No humanity destruction. Just a scenario.

This reasoning is all based on the premise that aliens think as humans do. Fear gloom doom. Fill your head with so much fear you cannot use whats between your ears.

how does green house gases threaten the universe.

it's like saying dropping .00000000000000000000000000001 milliliters of grease into the pacific ocean will destroy the atlantic ocean.

LOL so if we dont climate change our way to succes, aliens will annihilate us?

OKIDOKI!!!

Chances are IF ALIENS EVEN EXISTED which they probably dont, lets be honest, they would just take one look at this planet, realise we haven't even advanced to a one world government yet and laugh, leaving us to plague, war and famine one another for the next few decades.

This is pretty shoddy journalism from the Guardian, crazy leftist rag that it is!

Mean crossword though mind you.

This proves beyond a doubt that these scientists have gone completely nuts.

A similar topic may exist in BAN and a related forum like A&UFO's, as in this case.

BAN is the only place where such duplication may occur.

Carry on.

Scientists are full of it these days and so are those that report what "scientists say..".

Anything for funding and control.

So when fringe people with fringe ideas say the Aliens may come to stop us from annihalating ourselves they are full of it and scientists are the ones we should listen to.
When scientists start to back up these peoples claims and say the exact same thing then.......THE SCIENENTISTS ARE FULL OF IT????

WOW!
I love this and can't wait.

I do not mean to be a downer...but I downloaded the white paper and it is hilarious...a great read. Well, I have not finished it. These guys went to town, its like a frat party on paper.

Sorry OP....but I am with you on the ET side. They are here (multiple species), they are messing with our heads and we are kicking their *sses.

I didn't take this story seriously. If you ask me, I think it's suspicious.

They certainly would be a lot more concerned at the prospect of a bunch of 'smart monkies' gaining control of their own genome, developing A.I and nano tech - then borg-swarming the universe as immortal cyborg jihadis or whatever.

As I read the white paper...I think I am wrong...there is an effort at seriousness OP. I guess the way they approached the Fermi model, well, they did it ...."on the back of an envelope". Still I cannot tell if this is a hoax or not without reading all 33 pages of this paper. So more later.
