In July 2023, David Grusch travelled to Washington USA to speak to the House of Representatives oversight committee. Under oath, he told them that the US government is harbouring non-human pilots and attempting to reverse engineer alien spacecraft.

Earthlings are obsessed with conspiracy theories and fictional stories depicting non-human species from other planets. War of the Worlds. ET. Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Predator. Alien. Superman. Mars Attacks. Independence Day. The Firth Element. Paul. Men in Black. Transformers. Contact. Star Trek. Star Wars. Edge of Tomorrow. 10 Cloverfield Lane. A Quiet Place. Avatar. District 9. The Host.

We fear aliens. We fear they will experiment on our species. We fear they will invade our habitat leaving us displaced. We fear they will bring diseases we cannot cure. We fear they will eradicate our species from this planet. We fear they will extract all our natural resources and leave Earth for dead. We fear they will enslave or feed off us until humankind becomes extinct. We fear they are parasites that will invade our communities or our bodies and take over. We fear they will pollute our air, water, food and atmosphere so we can no longer inhabit this planet.

We fear our reflection.

Humans experiment on other species. Humans invade the habitats of other species leaving them displaced. Humans engage in biological warfare. Humans eradicate other species from this planet. Humans are using ecological resources faster than the Earth can regenerate. Humans enslave animals and clear native vegetation to replace it with edible crops. Humans are polluting our air. Humans are polluting our waterways. Humans throw away food and leave other humans to starve.

“Human activities, principally through emissions of greenhouse gases, have unequivocally caused global warming, with global surface temperature reaching1.1°C above 1850–1900 in 2011–2020. Global greenhouse gas emissions have continued to increase, with unequal historical and ongoing contributions arising from unsustainable energy use, land use and land-use change, lifestyles and patterns of consumption and production across regions, between and within countries, and among individuals…

“Widespread and rapid changes in the atmosphere, ocean, cryosphere and biosphere have occurred. Human-caused climate change is already affecting many weather and climate extremes in every region across the globe. This has led to widespread adverse impacts and related losses and damages to nature and people…

“Climate change is a threat to human well-being and planetary health. There is a rapidly closing window of opportunity to secure a liveable and sustainable future for all.” (IPCC AR6 2023).
