Mars Attacks: Scientists Say Aliens May Destroy Mankind Over Global Warming
The New American ^ | Saturday, 20 August 2011 | Selwyn Duke

Posted on 08/27/2011 10:30:17 AM PDT by Paladins Prayer

Three years after the release of the remake The Day the Earth Stood Still, a team of American researchers has made the film’s theme a scientific theory: They are suggesting that an alien race might destroy man to stop our release of greenhouse-gas emissions and global warming.

Writes Fox News:

The thought-provoking scenario is one of many envisaged in a joint study by Penn State and the NASA Planetary Science Division, entitled "Would Contact with Extraterrestrials Benefit or Harm Humanity? A Scenario Analysis."

It divides projected close encounters into "neutral," those that cause mankind "unintentional harm" and, more worryingly, those in which aliens do us "intentional harm."

While the idea of meeting our end at the green hands of anti-CO2 aliens may be more laugh-provoking than thought-provoking, another scenario in the harmful category is only slightly less amusing. Writes The Guardian, “They [the extraterrestrials] might invite humanity to join the 'Galactic Club' only for the entry requirements to be too bureaucratic and tedious for humans to bother with.”

Call this the Barack Obama Scenario.

Another example of denying what our LORD did for us on the cross. This just goes to show that humans will worship a turnip rather than the truth.

I have no idea who or what these “space aliens” might be, but if they think that the release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere from the combustion of various forms of carbon compounds contributes to “global warming”, then it is a total surprise they ever advanced enough to get off their own planet.

Could you imagine a race of Al Gore clones gaining supremacy in this, or any universe, EVER?

The Fermi Paradox is the apparent contradiction between the high probability extraterrestrial civilizations’ existence and the lack of contact with such civilizations.

IOW, If Space is full of advanced alien civilizations, why have they not stopped by for a spot of tea?

Or better yet, invaded to steal our:

(chose one or more)

Oil
Water
Minerals
Women
Moon-Pies & RC Colas

Yeah, and instead of people driving around playing 50s music making the Martians heads explode, the Martians will drive around playing announcements that Global Warming is a fraud causing all the Global Warming pimps heads to explode destroying civilization as Al Gore knows it.

Yes indeed! The liberal development of a fantasy based on fraudulent information and the adoption of the crazy curly Q light bulbs and bird slaughtering wind mills. How far will they dig when they hit bottom?

The truth of the matter is that space aliens could care less about global warming.

Why would aliens give a da#n what we do with this planet?
If they exist and wanted it they would have taken it over a long time ago.

That’s why we have Capitol Reef N.M. in Utah. They attacked us because of global cooling.

Clever line from the article:

‘I can suggest more plausible scenarios involving aliens who destroy humanity. While there might be a race called the Algoreians who travel the Universe exterminating beings to save their resources, I don’t think aliens would come and get us because of the Greenhouse Effect. It’s more likely to be the Greenback Effect: to make money by stealing our resources.’

Gosh.

Sounds like the plot to a liberal Hollywood movie, or something.

The dumber and more educated people are the more time they seem to have on their hands.
Unfortunately, I bet it's taxpayer money funding this retarded adult playground.

“Scientists Say Aliens May Destroy Mankind Over Global Warming”

Seems kind of redundant - weren’t we going to destroy ourselves via global warming?

Not real impressed with these aliens if they haven’t even invented popcorn yet.

"Greenback Effect: to make money by stealing our resources."

I was thinking that was the "Wetback Effect". ;-)

Ghosthunters didn't seem to provoke them either.

We just have to try harder and lower the standards further.

I think what they were trying to say is that super advanced aliens might monitor very rapid changes in a planet’s atmosphere as a sign of technological advancement. They would then do something about it, like seeing mouse poop in the pantry and setting out poison.

Not that I buy any of it, especially the liberal enviro garbage that is stuck to it, but it’s neat to think about. I think radio waves might be a surer way to do it. You might have aliens who don’t mess with their environment too much but who still advance somehow.

What if the aliens need CO2 to survive? We could be selling it to them. Problem solved.

Because out of the millions of stars in our own Galaxy, not to mention the billions and billions and billions of other galaxies, none of them have noticed our Star, little lone our planet. It is doubtful that other 'advanced' civilizations could 'see' our planet, even if they wanted to.

And it's not like our star has gone Supernova, which is usually what would attract the attention of any 'alien' astronomers.

Besides, it is likely they are so far distant from us that considering 'traveling' to Earth would be an almost 'infinite' journey , just like it would to us, and they have better things to do.
