Humanity may just now be entering the period in which its rapid civilizational expansion could be detected by an ETI because our expansion is changing the composition of the Earth's atmosphere, via greenhouse gas emissions," the report states.
The highly speculative scenario is one of the many listed in the paper written by Shawn Domagal-Goldman- a NASA affiliated scientist- and other colleagues at Penn State intended to express the likely possible outcomes of the “First Contact” between Man and Aliens.
The paper, Would Contact with Extraterrestrials Benefit or Harm Humanity? A Scenario Analysis, the researchers divide alien contacts into three broad categories: beneficial, neutral or harmful.
Needless to say, annihilation due to environmental policy differences would be among the more extreme of the harmful ways extraterrestrial contact could end. But it is not the only way…
The paper goes through a list of various ways First Contact could affect humanity, ranging from social indifference due to the failure of the extraterrestrials to live up to the Hollywood hype surrounding them to humanity beating back a global invasion by the little green men desperate for our world’s precious and rare resources.
