UFO Science Could Combat Global Warming

User Rating:  / 5

According to a report submitted to the UN, the US will emit even more greenhouse gases than now by 2020. The United States is already one of the world's largest polluters. It releases 25% of the pollution that is responsible for global warming. What's worse, more and more scientists are concluding that global warming cannot be stopped. We can only limit how much hotter the Earth will become, and how long the higher temperatures will stay. But even if all countries were to stop their greenhouse gas emissions tomorrow, temperatures would still rise.

The report is already late. It should have been submitted to the UN much earlier. Some suggest that the report took longer to put together because the administration doesn't want to tell the truth. In the future, global warming will seriously affect the US and its economy. Opponents say that the US needs to do more. Its current policy only focuses on slowing the growth rate of carbon dioxide and other gases. The administration hasn't enacted any policies that reduce emissions.

Scientists are working to improve wind and solar power at present. They also want to improve power plant efficiency. The US government spends $3 billion annually to research new technology, and $2 billion on climate research.

But maybe the answer to global warming is simpler. Paul Hellyer, a former Canadian defense minister from the 1960s, has asked all governments to come clean on UFOs. With alien technology, he has explained, we could find different, cleaner energy sources within a generation. Those spacecrafts have traveled great distances to visit our planet. They must be equipped with advanced engines and energy systems.

UFOs have definitely crashed her, Hellyer has said. He pointed to the 1947 crash at Roswell as an example. Governments have alien technology hidden away. We could save our planet if governments released the information.

True or False: Guess (before the article) or answer (after the article) whether the sentence is true or false. If false, correct the sentence.

  1. The U.S. will emit less greenhouse gases in 2020 than now.
  2. Global warming cannot be stopped.
  3. Global warming won't affect the U.S. economy in the future.
  4. Scientists are working with alien technology now to lower greenhouse gases.
  5. According to the article, governments have UFOs hidden away.

post-Comprehension: Talk about the following questions in pairs/groups. Remember to support your answers!
