You’ve heard that global warming could drown polar bears and cause killer hurricanes. But did you know it could also lead to an alien invasion from outer space? Well London’s Guardian newspaper reports that some NASA-affiliated researchers at Penn State believe that aliens, who might be watching from afar, will view changes in our atmosphere as a symptom of a civilization out of control, and have to take drastic action to protect the galaxy. Since they might eat, enslave, or attack us, this crack team of experts thinks this might be another good reason to stop driving our SUVs and running our air conditioners on high. I guess this environmental concern gives new meaning to watching out for those “Green” men from Mars.
