Rising greenhouse emissions may tip off aliens that we are a rapidly expanding threat, warns a report for Nasa
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 were humans and alien life to make contact at some point in the future.

They can start in Washington DC.
“Scientists” strike again with more AGW doom.
They are REALLY getting desperate!!! And the more ridiculous stuff they come up with, the more they convince rational people that they are full of hot air.
It won’t be long before Al Gore and Obama warn of the same thing.
“We’ll make great pets...”
So is Obama a lizard alien, or is he more of a bug type?
They would most likely be conservative. They havent visited us since we obviously havent purged all the rabid liberals from the planet.
Not if we kill them first!
Another absurdity from the ridiculous and contemptible Guardian. What a complete crock.
It is quite obvious.
We have them living in the White House.
When did the media admit there are aliens?
This is richer than Cheesecake
I guess the radio waves, city lights, and the occasional nuclear explosions aren’t a sufficient tip that we are here.
“Watching from afar....”
Watching from not so far away, I’d guess that NASA and Penn State had wasted a bunch of the taxpayer’s money.
Surely no REAL scientist claims this. This sounds like a scary tall tale your parent might tell you to get you to stay out of the woods. You know, “If you go into the boogie man will get you!” Sheesh.
is this article from April 1st? It’s beyond laughable.
Only if neutered and declawed.
“Another absurdity from the ridiculous and contemptible Guardian.”
The Guardian is the New York Slimes of London.
The Guardian — for those who thought the Weekly World News was too straitlaced.
LOL Best post!
This explains the title of Hillary’s latest book: “To Serve Man.”
I wonder what they will come up with next???
What the H#ll?? How low will NASA sink......?
OTOH - Aliens are most likely to be in awe of earth’s masters and deem them Gods of the Universe, a far more likely scenario.
No scientists needed, this is the theme of countless stupid liberal sci fi films, including the preposterous remake of “The Day The Earth Stood Still”.
The aliens love living things and the environment so much they come here to kill all of us and everything we ever manufactured, but Keaneu Reeves (alien) sees Jennifer Connely and a black kid cry over this as he kills everyone so THEN he realizes it was a bad idea!
We get to live but he takes away ALL energy from us. FU Hollywood AND the pseudo scientists who wrote these high school level papers.
Fascinating how THEY get to travel the universe and kill all of us with their advanced technology, but it was important they “save the Earth” by making even peoples’ watches stop. Typical liberal daydream.
They should teach those Rocket Scientists at NASA a little bit about history, and common sense. The Earth has had periods of volcanic activity where the amount of toxic gases in the atmosphere, especially so-called green house gases was hundreds of times higher than it is today...and that was millions of years before man was around. From a bazillion miles away the tree hugger aliens would never know the difference.
“Theres no point in acting all surprised about it. All the planning charts and demolition orders have been on display at your local planning department in Alpha Centauri for fifty of your Earth years so youve had plenty of time to lodge any formal complaints and its far too late to start making a fuss about it now.”
Now you see the destructiveness of doing cocaine in college. LOL!
So - a group of eggheads whose paychecks mostly come from taxpayers’ wallets, have come up with a comic book plot. We have stepped through the looking glass here, people.
I will not be at all surprised if at some point in the coming months Obama makes some veiled reference to Area 51, the "Roswell Incident" or some other pop-culture, extra-terrestrial meme.
The intent being, of course, to show us that we really can't trust anyone else at the head of the ship of state right now, whilst he's in intense negotiations with our overlords from Alpha Centauri. Best to re-elect the First Black President Who Brought Us Into the Galactic Union. Or some such BS.
I'm serious, I can see him trying it. He won't mention it's a cookbook.
And WE are paying for THIS. Anyone associated with this work should be terminated, maybe even with extreme prejudice.
More like an amorphous sentient black cloud of misery, with no silver lining.
If he is not smoking funny cigarettes,
then we are in real trouble.
Aliens won’t destroy us outright when its so much easier to bleed us dry.
Oh wait, you’re talking about space aliens.
me thinks these scientists have been drinking home made Romulan Ale (triple distilled )
ROFLOL, I think I may have read that plot, but it picked up after the outer space bombings. LOL
The best part of that scene was the old woman watching it on TV going, “They blew up Congress....HA HA HA HA HA!”
When I saw Mars Attacks! in the theater, everybody cheered that scene.
Imagine that to write this nonsense about aliens killing us over global warming, they even had to ignore the part where the aliens kill us because we have nuclear weapons!!!
Klaatu look, planet Earth is 4 degrees warmer than uh, Al Gore thinks it should be! (Oh and they had a little thing called WWII but back to that temperature reading....)
Punishment from above? Rather Biblical.
These liberals have to get on the same page!
I have it on absolute authority that I have been deemed the Alpha God of the alien crowd. I will rule with mercy but rigid firmth throughout the firmaments.
Global Warming alarmists are going over the edge... Why would Aliens kill us because we’re killing ourselves ( according to liberal warming logic)??? Seems they’d be profoundly disinterested.
They'd dismiss increased emissions as indicating nothing more than another stage in the normal cycle.
We are safe unless we do somethin to DISTURB the cycle ~ then they'll come.
Clearly NASA has not thought through the problem.
