Aliens didn't have Al Gore
During the Cold War, one reason listed for the Fermi Paradox was nuclear annihilation. It stands to reason that in this day of concerns over global climate change, someone would pose it as a solution for the same paradox.

Another possibility is that they fell for the "We have to fix everything on our planet before we move outward" fallacy.

Ed Lu Solidifies his Position
(I know, it's been while since I posted. I'll use the typical "Really busy" excuse)
