We covered the story in November 2005 of the former Canadian minister Paul Hellyer (read: fruitcake) who claimed that UFOs were a "threat" to the human race, demanded nationwide hearings on them, and, in an even more bizarre moment (if it could get any more bizarre), blamed President Bush for trying to start "an intergalactic war."
A real loon, if one can't be found among the loony left.
Well, Hellyer is back, now claiming that we should demand that governments worldwide hand over all of those alien spaceships they shot down over the years, because - get this one - their advanced technology could be used to fight...ready? Global warming.
Someone needs to lock this psycho up, and quickly, before he hurts himself thinking.
UFO science key to halting climate change: former Canadian defense minister
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.
Such alien technologies could offer humanity alternatives to fossil fuels, he said, pointing to the enigmatic 1947 incident in Roswell, New Mexico -- which has become a shrine for UFO believers -- as an example of alien contact.
"We need to persuade governments to come clean on what they know. Some of us suspect they know quite a lot, and it might be enough to save our planet if applied quickly enough," he said.
Hellyer became defense minister in former prime minister Lester Pearson's cabinet in 1963, and oversaw the controversial integration and unification of Canada's army, air force and navy into the Canadian Forces.
He shocked Canadians in September 2005 by announcing he once saw a UFO.
We would say that it is surely a shocking development that a man who served in the Canadian government a long time ago has clearly lost what was left of his pea brain. Then again, in this country we have Sandy Berger, a former intelligence official who smuggled documents of the National Archives in his shoes and undderwear and then destroyed them so he could cover up Bill Clinton's failings in the war on terrorism.
