Let's consider a story passing through Bad Astronomy.
A former Canadian Defense Minister wants to find out if secret alien technology being withheld from citizens by their governments can solve global warming.
Hmm. Which is worse?
That this guy was once a Minister of Defense?
That things are deteriorating enough that we need alien interference to prevent the demise of your species?
This is so ridiculous, and a waste of time. Why look for alien technology to solve global warming? How stupid! We should be using it to find out who killed Kennedy, what really brought down the World Trade Center, and if Wernher von Braun was actually a Nazi or not.
