1950s Sci-Fi Movies Were Right, Take 2

Finally, a man who knows how to speak truth to power. Former Canadian Defence Minister Paul Hellyer has come out with the ideal solution to our oft-asserted climate crisis: alien spaceship fuel. Read what those spooks at Area 51 don’t want you to know:

“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.

If this alien technology lives up to all of the Canadian has-been political hype, that could mean a functionally inexhaustable supply of cheap, clean energy. But, then again, we know what the enviro crowd thinks of that.
