Global warming is something that we are very aware of, but have you thought about its impact beyond the planet?¬†A joint project between NASA’s Planetary Science Division and Penn State University have stumbled upon something in their research to find out whether alien contact would hurt or harm us. According to this article, aliens may destroy humans in order to save the galaxy.
Hang on, don’t head to the bunkers just yet. This is just a theory that researchers think may happen if the effects of global warming on our planet start to contaminate the rest of the galaxy and universe. Other theories include an alliance between human and aliens (to ward off other aliens), indifference (we know each other exists but don’t do anything about it), to them enslaving us or killing us with alien diseases.
What lesson can we take from this research? Treat our planet with care and help reduce greenhouse gases to prevent our planet from drawing unwelcome attention from extraterrestrials. And let’s hope if contact is made, the first words we (or they) hear is “We come in peace.”
