While UFOs are conspicuously absent in the study, it does at
least discuss, if not resolve, many of the possible consequences
of unambiguous detection or contact with ETI.

I don't begrudge their omission of the UFO topic, considering
the ridicule their analysis has already received without even
mentioning it.

For that matter, if the case for ETI contact via UFOs was
already trivially evident, I should think this paper would not
have appeared at all... we would already be dealing with the
harm or benefits they discuss.

In light of which it is appropriate and fortunate that "we have
nobody who speaks for the planet".
