“The likelihood of finding a planet with ALL the requirements to support life AND for that life to exist at all, much less to be intelligent enough to build a transmitter, are virtually nil. The odds are like 1:10e-300.”

The problem is when. Some scientists have posited that the amount of time a civilization with a comparable lifespan to ours has between developing radio and collapse from war/pollution/disease is 100-200 years.

Collapse from war/ pollution/disease AND the alien equivalent of Democrats will make that window shrink to near zero! ;)

Was that the global warming scientists or the nucular winter scientists?

Some scientists have posited that manmade global warming is real and we are doomed.

Bogus science both

I'll throw in a couple of other factors: If a species becomes technologically proficient as to develop radio as a medium of communication, it may be that the same species either develops some other means (leveraging quantum entanglement?) within 200 years, or perhaps recognizes that it might not be such a good idea to broadcast your existence out to a universe which is fundamentally hostile and/or hungry, and so they employ less leaky modes of communications (direct line of site lasers?)
