It is proposed that visitation by extraterrestrial spacecraft (UFO) alters the electromagnetic properties of the earth, its atmosphere, and its oceans and that these changes can cause global warming leading to climate change and thence to the catastrophic consequences of floods, droughts, severe storms, and sea level rise. An empirical test of this theory is presented with data for UFO sightings and surface temperature reconstructions for the study period 1910-2015. The results show strong evidence of proportionality between surface temperature and cumulative UFO sightings. We conclude that the observed warming since the Industrial Revolution are due to an electromagnetic perturbation of the climate system by UFO extraterrestrial spacecraft.

    The world needs more hyperbolic humor. Way too serious.

  2. Bitter@twisted says:

    The relationship shown in this paper is very simple to explain.
    Raving loonies of the type who support climate change are much more likely to “see and report” UFOs, thanks to the proliferation of “non-judgemental” PC policies.
    In the past they were more likely to keep their fantasies to themselves to avoid having the pi$$ ripped out of them.

  3. Bitter@twisted says:

    Seriously this another example of a “spurious correlation”, just like that of CO2 and temperature.
    Both are equally barking.

    Well it’s not far off April 1st.

  5. Gary says:

    Got it backwards. Warming causes UFOs.

    That collage revealed thousands of nests where 751,527 pairs of Adelie penguins were living – more than the rest of the entire Antarctic Peninsula region combined.

    There aren’t too many places left on Earth where one can hide completely undetected, but that’s what a “mega-colony” of penguins has been doing on a remote string of islands off Antarctica.

    Scientists were recently stunned to discover that more than 1,500,000 Adelie penguins have been living in obscurity on the Danger Islands off the Antarctic Peninsula’s northern tip.

    The penguins managed to go undetected for so long because the islands where the birds live are so difficult to access that, even in the summer, ice-filled waters surrounding the islands make human visits too treacherous.

    Dr. Tom Hart of Oxford University’s department of zoology who was part of the team that found the penguins, told The Daily Telegraph it’s amazing that so many birds could go undetected for so long.

    “The weirdest, most surprising and incredible thing is that, in this day and age, something so big can go unseen,” he said.

    Oh dear this completely contradicts Dr Roy Spencer’s 2014 hypothesis on UFO induced warming *grabs popcorn* 😉

    My hypothesis is that the extraterrestrials’ spaceships have some sort of powerful heat generators which are dumping energy into the ocean. Maybe an antigravity-based thermogenic flux capacitor technology (that’s just a guess…I’m only a rocket scientist, not a nuclear physicist or movie star).
