Climate change killed the aliens, and it might kill us too, new simulation suggests

Did climate change already kill all the aliens we've been searching for?

According to astrophysicist Adam Frank, it's certainly a possibility — and whether humans are doomed to the same fate may already be out of our hands.

Frank, a professor of physics and astronomy at the University of Rochester in New York, is the lead author of a new paper published May 1 in the journal Astrobiology that aims to take what Frank calls a "10,000-light-year" view of anthropogenic (human-caused) climate change. Using mathematical models based on the disappearance of a real-life lost civilization here on Earth (the former inhabitants of Easter Island), Frank and his colleagues simulated how various alien civilizations might rise and fall if they were to increasingly convert their planet's limited natural resources into energy.

"The laws of physics demand that any young population, building an energy-intensive civilization like ours, is going to have feedback on its planet," Frank said in a statement. "Seeing climate change in this cosmic context may give us better insight into what's happening to us now and how to deal with it."

Another variation on the Fermi Paradox.

Personally, I think the Fermi Paradox is explained by the movie Idiocracy.

The space travelers were smart enough to get here, but not smart enough to invent air conditioning?

I remember well how that was what we learned as our class studied physics.

Oh, wait, I'm misremembering.

Rather, that's what we learned when our class studied "scientific" frauds.

“Might” and “mathematical models” are dead giveaways this is more political agenda-driven “science”...

The truth is we have so far not found nor have any bloody idea if and/or where alien species might exist, let alone have reached technological levels in their development...

And while it’s true Earth’s climate is changing as it has constantly done thruout our home world’s existence, nobody has offered any real evidence the current changes are anthropogenic, beyond more computer models...

Garbage In...Garbage Out...

Feedback? Math models? AstroPsychiatrist? 10K light year view? Must be a vegetabletarian in search of more funding or carrots.

Climate change is caused by the Sun.

Ridiculous. What would kill aliens is the fact that they would not be able to live on this planet. Too many things are different, that they are not ready for: climate, food, atmosphere, gravity, UV radiation, and the real killer, bacteria.

They would not survive, no matter what the conditions here were. To think that they arrived, and thrived is stupid and ridiculous.

Science fiction shows aliens arriving on Earth and living with no problems. They breathe the air, eat the food and speak English. Fiction is not reality.

Perhaps falling air conditioners led to their extinction?
