Bob Brown wonders why aliens aren't calling From: The Daily Telegraph March 28, 2012 12:00AM
"FELLOW Earthians," asks Greens leader Bob Brown, "Why aren't the intergalactic phones ringing?" Senator Brown took to the stars to mark the 40th anniversary of the party's founding, claiming the reason humanity was yet to get a phone call from interstellar lifeforms may be that they have already "extincted themselves".
"Surely some people-like animals have evolved elsewhere. Surely we are not, in this crowded reality of countless other similar planets, the only thinking beings to have turned up. They have extincted themselves. They have come and gone. And now it's our turn," Mr Brown told his audience in Hobart.
“Here is one sobering possibility for our isolation: maybe life has often evolved to intelligence on other planets with biospheres and every time that intelligence, when it became able to alter its environment, did so with catastrophic consequences. Maybe we have had many predecessors in the Cosmos but all have brought about their own downfall.”
He said humanity faced an imminent environmental apocalypse of our own making

This is the problem with the whole "green" mantra.
We are facing an enviromental apocolypse, but the underlying cause is to many damn people, but according the "greenies" its not ok to wipe out all the usless people we have laying around doing bugger all..........gee, people like Bob Brown.
