Aliens Might Save Earth?

A surprising potential future for our planet was raised by a joint study conducted by Penn State and NASA: an Earth invaded and protected by aliens. Researchers speculated the current climate change problem is so large, it might be noticeable from space, and could signal to aliens the Earth is in trouble. If the aliens were conservation-minded enough, they might see fit to start reducing the human population, which is the dominant species and cause of most environmental problems, if not all. “Humanity may just now be entering the period in which its rapid civilizational expansion could be detected by an ETI (extraterrestrial intelligence) because our expansion is changing the composition of the Earth’s atmosphere, via greenhouse gas emissions,” said the report, titled “Would Contact with Extraterrestrials Benefit or Harm Humanity? A Scenario Analysis.” (Source: IBTimes.com)

Connecting climate change with an alien invasion of beings that might actually benefit the Earth, is a scenario not often discussed because so far there is no evidence  that extra-terrestrials exist in a form capable of space flight, could survive entry to Earth and have the capacity to subdue the human population. Perhaps the report relies on ideas from science fiction, such as War of the Worlds, or is in part an attempt to draw attention to the lack of checks and balances on human-generated damage to our planet. If publishing an alien invasion paper seems like a trivial way of drawing attention to the most pressing global problem for all species on the planet, consider how much more press celebrities without talents like Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton get at times, than climate change.

Consider how much Big Oil spends lobbying Congress to protect their profits, while the mass media reports about Casey Anthony or the Tiger Woods scandal. Meanwhile wolf hunts are back on in Idaho in Montana, not because sound science says their populations are stable, but only due to politics. In about the same time frame oil drilling in the Arctic was approved, though there are no established ways of cleaning up an oil spill there. These are just a very small number of the destructive things taking place.

It’s almost as if the alien invasion scenario is the only single hypothetical  event that could halt all of the destructive activity at once, and yet it exists only on paper. Perhaps it is just wishful thinking, at least from the point of view of halting climate change and protecting wildlife and wild habitat in one momentous blow. Is there anything else, other than an Act of God, that could instantly stop what seems to be an inevitable course?

Thanks for the article.

The phrase
"humans need to take responsibility for their own actions"
adds a lot of additional difficulties into the process between BIG BANG and development of spiritual life and social commitment...at least as long as everybody has a very personal meaning about what "responsibility" is. Against whom? About what ??

I am amused. Aliens. HAHAHA okay I get open mindedness but why waste money on such outlandish fantasies? Use it to try to save Earth ourselves instead of to speculate the existence of such creatures. LMAO. If aliens did come to Earth I doubt theyd help us, they'd realize what a waste of time that would be. They would just laugh and fly away

Hello Juergen,

Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, from our research, we find that many spiritual leaders have souls of extraterrestrial origin. Humans with extraterrestrial souls many times bring great missions to Earth, some to help humanity move forward and gain higher spiritual evolution, as with Jesus. We understand that followers of Jesus Christ may disagree; we do not intend to incite controversy, but to broadcast the truth as received by higher thought and intelligences, much like Jesus himself did in his day and age. For that, he was crucified. We hope that all consider this message as one of peace and understanding. Thank you.

The "clash of civilisations" is a modern expression to that phenomen, what in former times was nothing else than "war". The lack of ability to unite different oppinions with each other accompanies mankind since the beginning of the so called civilisation. MAKE LOVE -- NOT WAR was an attempt to overcome this mechanism. How many marriages are divorced because it doesn't work so easlily? Who denies, that a divorce is something very similar to war?

You might ask, what has that to do with aliens? Well, I say the "alien-bla-bla" starts in your brain box with "strange thoughts".

My personal decision is, that it is my turn to keep such strange thoughts alive, when they aim at rescuing the Earth from further disaster. Best knowledge to do so I presented a little by some photos -- besides my profile.

no jesus or aliens or bigfoot is coming to save us from ourselves. no matter your religious beliefs or lack thereof it's all up to us. we made this mess and we have to clean it up. to let the mess go on with the excuse that we can wait for jesus or aliens to fix it is probably a good sign that humans have already failed whatever test jesus or aliens or whoever is waiting to see if we can pass.

Sandwich-Man -- Once I heard of a man, who walked up and down the street in Philadelphia. Over the shoulders he carried two big signs of carton. The one at his front said "I'm a fool of Jesus Christ."

Most of those, who read that, were pitying him secretly or thought him somewhat silly or stupid...until they saw the second message, which he carried at his back, saying "Whose fool are you?"

Now my question to the experts: Do you thing Jesus Christ to be an Alien?

Similar to humans, there are both benevolent and destructive aliens. We are studying benevolent aliens at the Museum of Alien Studies in Taiwan. Benevolent aliens are here to help humanity and help the Earth. As we can see, more and more natural disasters are happening with greater frequency. Humans at our current level of intelligence are not able to resolve or forecast these calamities. However, since benevolent aliens' intelligence exceeds humans 100 to 1000 times, they can assist humans with these and many other serious challenges we face today.
