Hellyer ain't some whacked out Trekkie X-Filer. He was Canada's Defence Minister under Lester Pearson. He figgers we can solve climate change by usin' the same technology that the Martians used t' fly their space ships all the way t' Earth an' back.
OTTAWA (AFP) - A former Canadian defense minister is demanding governments worldwide disclose and use secret alien technologies obtained in alleged UFO crashes to stem climate change, a local paper said Wednesday.
"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.
Now, I figger if any country like the Merkans had access t' some sorta super spaceman science, they woulda already used it t' take over the world by now. Ol' Hellyer's gettin' up there an' maybe he's been fergettin' t' take the ginseng. Or else maybe he's got secret info from when he was Defence Minister an' he's fergettin' t' keep it secret.
I like the idea o' space aliens pullin' us earthlings' fat outta the fire. I figger it'd make a dandy comic book script.
