World Economic Forum identified ET life as an emerging concern - reported by openmindstv

Post by Admin on Wed Mar 27, 2013 10:01 am

In January 2013 openminds.tv reported on the World Economic Forum's findings that ET life was an emerging concern.

Quote:

In the Forum’s Global Risks report for 2013, the Forum collaborated with the journal Nature and identified five “X Factors,” which they define as “serious issues, grounded in the latest scientific findings, but somewhat remote from what are generally seen as more immediate concerns.” These X Factors are: Runaway Climate Change, Significant Cognitive Enhancement, Rogue Deployment of Geoengineering, Costs of Living Longer, and the Discovery of Alien Life. As the Voice of Russia reports, experts from the Forum contend that “given the pace of space exploration, it is increasingly conceivable that we may discover the existence of alien life or other planets that could support human life. In 10 years’ time we may have evidence not only that Earth is not unique but also that life exists elsewhere in the universe.”

The Forum points out these “X Factors” to encourage global leaders to “reflect on what countries or companies should be doing to anticipate them.”

This isn’t the first time an international economic forum has discussed extraterrestrial life. In January 2011, business leaders from around the world met at the 5th annual Global Competitiveness Forum where UFOs and extraterrestrial life were among the topics discussed. Experts presented information during a panel session titled “Contact: Learning from Outer Space.” The panel description read, “Using knowledge gained from research in the fields of Ufology and the search for extraterrestrial life, what might we possibly learn about hindrances to innovation in other areas of inquiry?”
