UFO science key to halting climate change

This is what a former Canadian defense minister is claiming.
Holy freakin’ crap

[quote]OTTAWA (AFP) - A former Canadian defense minister is demanding governments worldwide disclose and use secret alien technologies obtained in alleged UFO crashes to stem climate change, a local paper said Wednesday.

“I would like to see what (alien) technology there might be that could eliminate the burning of fossil fuels within a generation … that could be a way to save our planet,” Paul Hellyer, 83, told the Ottawa Citizen.

Alien spacecrafts would have traveled vast distances to reach Earth, and so must be equipped with advanced propulsion systems or used exceptional fuels, he told the newspaper.

Such alien technologies could offer humanity alternatives to fossil fuels, he said, pointing to the enigmatic 1947 incident in Roswell, New Mexico – which has become a shrine for UFO believers – as an example of alien contact.

“We need to persuade governments to come clean on what they know. Some of us suspect they know quite a lot, and it might be enough to save our planet if applied quickly enough,” he said.

Hellyer became defense minister in former prime minister Lester Pearson’s cabinet in 1963, and oversaw the controversial integration and unification of Canada’s army, air force and navy into the Canadian Forces.

He shocked Canadians in September 2005 by announcing he once saw a UFO.[/quote]

Is this why he [color=red]was[/color] a Canadian Defense Minister or is this why he is a [color=red]former[/color] Canadian Defense Minister? :smiley:

There are only 3 real conclusions to this story that I can see.

  1. UFOs are real, and he’s telling the truth.
  2. There are no UFOs and he’s completely lying, for whatever reason.
  3. People really do go crazy when they get old, and that’s the case here. (Maybe this is in the lying category?)

So which is it?

Lucky old bastard. I wish I was mad. Then I would not have to deal with the shame of being an English teacher in Taiwan. :slight_smile:

That reminds me–anybody going to the Raelian meeting in Taichung this weekend?

Haven’t most of us seen a UFO of some sort? But by the very definition of the acronym, it can’t have been identified as being alien.

Right. Technically people should say “I saw a UFO, but it turned out to be an alien spacecraft.”
