Avi Loeb on How We Should Prepare For UFOs and Alien Contact
UFO sightings are on the rise this year, the U.S. government appears to be taking disclosure seriously, and more former intelligence officers are speaking out about UFOs. It begs the question, ‘what do we do if extraterrestrials show up?’
Interest in UFOs and calls for disclosure have shifted from a fringe movement to a more mainstream one. For years, ufologists have demanded full exposure of all alien contact with humans, but what should we actually do if extraterrestrials make themselves known to us on Earth or in space?
That’s the question posed by Harvard Professor of Science Avi Loeb, in his latest article for Scientific American. Professor Loeb, author of “Extraterrestrial: The First Sign of Intelligent Life Beyond Earth” thinks we should be prepared for an alien arrival.
The Senate Is Unhappy With the Intelligence UFO Report, Demands More
Congress is doubling down on UFO legislation — first the House and now the Senate is demanding answers going back decades.
Members of Congress who are not pleased with the lackluster response from security agencies and the Department of Defense’s response to last year’s UFO-related legislation called for sweeping changes and oversight to the reporting of UFO activity. They just passed even stronger language in the Intelligence Authorization Act for 2023.
Mirroring the House legislation, the Senate would also create a “secure system” for reporting UAPs, as well as loosen the restrictions on, or release people from, non-disclosure agreements. It also calls for a deep dive into how UAP-related activities were handled by the government dating back to 1947.
So what makes this bill so groundbreaking? Nick Pope served with the UK’s Ministry of Defense covering UAP activity.
“We now have some really strong language in the draft Intelligence Authorization Act for fiscal year 2023. The bottom line is that Congress is continuing to say to the DoD and intelligence community, ‘we want action on the UAP issue,’ and they are clearly not letting it go, and the language is robust. They are articulating a number of must-haves here that we have not seen before.”
