On my enviro-policy blog, we often write about alternative approaches to solving climate change. Somehow I don’t think this idea makes the cut:
A former Canadian defence minister says be believes advanced technology from extraterrestrial civilizations offers the best hope to “save our planet” from the perils of climate change.
Paul Hellyer, 83, is calling for a public disclosure of alien technology obtained during alleged UFO crashes — such as the mysterious 1947 incident in Roswell, New Mexico — because he believes alien species can provide humanity with a viable alternative to fossil fuels.
Mr. Hellyer has been a public UFO advocate since September 2005 when he spoke at a symposium in Toronto. But with concern over global warming at an all-time high, and Canadian political parties struggling to out-green one another, Mr. Hellyer said governments and the military have a responsibility to “come clean on what they know” now more than ever.
“Climate change is the No. 1 problem facing the world today,” he said. “I’m not discouraging anyone from being green conscious, but I would like to see what (alien) technology there might be that could eliminate the burning of fossil fuels within a generation … that could be a way to save our planet.”
The obscure allusion in the title of this post reveals my own historic interest in UFOs . That was a long time ago, before I got into things like Objectivism, libertarianism, and other ideas that are totally sane.
