NASA: Aliens May Destroy Humanity to Stop Carbon Emissions

Of course, they might also come and shoot rainbows out of their asses, if they have asses:

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 scientists at Nasa and 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".
And they call that a plausible outcome?  If that's true, we need to start making our plans to destroy any aliens we come in contact with on a pre-emptive basis.  None of this namby-pamby try to be friends first crap. Do you think the Kzin care about our carbon footprint?  Hell, no, they just want our planet to raise their kittens on!

These guys really need to leave Science Fiction to the professionals.
