Hot Take: ‘Climate Change’ Might Explain Why There Are No Aliens Out There

If you remember back, a couple of astrologers, er, scientists, modeled what they think happens with alien civilizations and how it leads to ‘climate change.’

This has led to lots and lots of articles on the subject since. Most of which were silly, and ignorable. Then we get this


In the 1950s, famed physicist Enrico Fermi posed the question that encapsulated one of the toughest questions in the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI): “Where the heck is everybody?” What he meant was, given the age of the Universe (13.8 billion years), the sheer number of galaxies (between 1 and 2 trillion), and the overall number of planets, why has humanity still not found evidence of extra-terrestrial intelligence?

This question, which has come to be known as the “Fermi Paradox”, is something scientists continue to ponder. In a new study, a team from the University of Rochester considered that perhaps Climate Change is the reason. Using a mathematical model based on the Anthropocene, they considered how civilizations and planet systems co-evolve and whether or not intelligent species are capable of living sustainability with their environment.

See? All the aliens killed themselves off because of carbon pollution! That’s why we don’t see them!

BTW, when it comes to aliens, can we really claim that 100% of all the reported encounters are fake?

    Waiting to hear that Earth-human-made global warming is the cause of alien civilisations failing…

      Yeah, and that it only can be fixed by implementing Cuban/North Korean style socialism along with THEIR living standards on all of us.

    Catastrophe du jour. Any reader of ’50s science fiction could have told you that alien civilizations arise and flourish until they develop atomic weapons and destroy themselves in the inevitable nuclear wars — just like humanity will (would).

    Older civilizations obviously destroy upstart civilizations after they detect radio waves. They need to wait until they are sure that the radio waves are not a lure by another old civilization trying to get rivals to reveal themselves.

    The chance that the new aliens are not predators, hostile von Neumann machines or simply aggressive is too great to risk when one medium sized asteroid will end ask intelligent life on any planet. So destroy the peeping fledglings in the nest.
