NASA Warns Global Warming may Tip Off Space Aliens to our Existence

When New York Times columnist Paul Krugman suggested that the United States needed to be attacked by space aliens in order to jump start the economy, I had the faint hope that he would become at least somewhat marginalized by the left. Not only does that appear to have been far too premature but a NASA scientist is now suggesting that man-made global warming on earth may be a source of alarm for space aliens who might feel compelled to intervene to prevent us from doing some real damage.

Via The Guardian:
It may not rank as the most compelling reason to curb greenhouse gases, but reducing our emissions might just save humanity from a pre-emptive alien attack, scientists claim.

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 a Nasa-affiliated scientist and colleagues at 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.

Shawn Domagal-Goldman of Nasa's Planetary Science Division and his colleagues compiled a list of plausible outcomes that could unfold in the aftermath of a close encounter, to help humanity "prepare for actual contact".
Isn't it an interesting coincidence that this tripe is coming from Penn State, the same university where disgraced 'hockey stick' chart scientist Michael Mann, of 'Climategate,' works?

Under the Obama administration, NASA has abandoned the shuttle program and has adopted a premise that makes Al Gore look sane.
