Alien civilization

Could alien civilizations predict the fate of our planet?  As population grows, it uses more and more of its planet’s resources…

By consuming the planet’s resources, the civilization then changes the conditions of the planet. Thinking about a civilization evolving together with its play is key, therefore, because the fate of our own civilization depends on how we use Earth’s resources.

In order to illustrate the cooperative population-planet system, astrophysicist Adam Frank and his collaborators have, for the first time, developed a mathematical model that shows the possible ways a civilization and its planet can evolve together. Right now the equations are theoretical, but by thinking of civilizations and planets—even alien ones—as a whole, researchers can better decide what we might do as a species to survive.

“The point is to recognize that driving climate change may be something generic,” says Frank, a professor of physics and astronomy at the University of Rochester. “The laws of physics demand that any young population, by building an energy-intensive civilization like ours, is going to have feedback on its planet. Seeing climate change in this cosmic context may give us better insight on what’s happening to us now and how to deal with it.”

Frank and fellow researchers Martina Alberti of the University of Washington and Axel Kleidon of the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry, as well as Jonathan Carroll-Nellenback, a postdoctoral associate at Rochester, published their findings in the journal Astrobiology.

    ok and what do these vaunted NASA guys actually need to do?? Theory is one thing. what needs to happen is to LIMIT China, Philippines, INDIA…the BIGGEST population adders on the planet, and limit what they can have by those of us who have it. water, food, and energy..

    It’s like Bill Burr says, everyone needs to stop having children for about 50 years. When I was in grade school, we were taught the global population was 5 billion. 40 years later… now they’re saying it’s 7+ billion. That’s 7 x 1,000 million! That’s too many!! And how the hell did we gain 2+ billion people in only 4 decades?? Mind you, this is only what they are aware of… some 3rd world nations are terrible at accurately documenting births and deaths and I’m sure there are even remote tribes in Africa or Australia that have never been counted in the census so it’s probably closer to 8 billion. Then consider that 7 of those 8 billion are completely worthless to society, so now you have only 1 billion worthy team players. The rest are sucking up all the natural resources at an alarming rate. No wonder the elite are trying to exterminate us!
