I would take them around the world to see how happy people are. I would give them a big gift and tell them that humans would really like to be friends with them. A large delegation could greet the aliens when they come to earth, helping to change their minds.

Alice Leung, 16, Ho Fung College
I would take the aliens on a trip around the world. I would show them the Amazon rainforest, the pyramids, the Great Wall and the Taj Mahal. Last but not least, I would take them to a concert. If they invade the earth, I would tell them all of these fabulous things would be gone. Would they want that? Definitely not.

Aaron De Silva, 18, ELCHK Lutheran Secondary School
I would use the environmental problems we are facing, such as pollution and global warming, to persuade aliens not to invade our planet. I would tell them how difficult life is on our “dirty” planet. The aliens would realise that it would be better to stay where they are since earth is well on the way to destroying itself.

Vicky Yip, 16, Pentecostal Lam Hon Kwong School
I would tell the invaders they would suffer from the earth’s rising temperatures caused by global warming. Even the North Pole is no good because the ice is melting. Furthermore, there’s severe air pollution, and tsunamis, earthquakes, droughts, floods and other natural disasters. If you can tolerate such a polluted earth, go ahead with your invasion and good luck!

Melody Lam, 14, POCA Wong Siu Ching Secondary
School
I would tell the aliens that we could join hands to save the earth. Millions of years ago, the earth was a beautiful place, but now people are destroying it. We have polluted the environment, cut down trees, and built up weapons of mass destruction. If the pollution does not kill us, a nuclear war will. If you start a war with us, it could destroy the universe. We are not enemies. We are partners!

Akira Law, 15, Ho Fung College
I would welcome the aliens with open arms. First, I would ask them to do something to deter terrorists. Second, I would ask them to take the tonnes of carbon dioxide and other harmful chemicals we emit every day. Maybe they could make good use of the pollutants.

Elizabeth Pong, 14, St Stephen’s Girls’ College
I would tell aliens the earth is too dangerous for them. There are serious environmental problems here and humans are no good as slaves because they suffer from various illnesses like obesity and heart disease. Aliens are also more intelligent than us, so they should colonise Mars instead. That would be a fun experience for them.

Kylie Lee, 18, Heep Yunn School
I would encourage the aliens to stay and tell them the earth is running out of resources and facing an environmental crisis. Besides, the world could end in 2012. Then I hope to leave the planet on their spaceship. Before long the invaders, too, will leave earth voluntarily.

Alexander Chuk, 15, Diocesan Boys’ School
Why would you bother wasting so many resources, risking your lives to come all the way across the universe, just to take over our little planet? If you want warmth, Mercury is a wonderful spot for sunbathing. If you prefer somewhere cooler, you could take Pluto. Coming to earth is a waste of time and energy and you’re not getting much in return. It’s just not worth it.

Christy Lai, 15, Ho Fung College
I would offer some useful advice to the aliens. With your advanced technology, invading the earth could be a piece of cake for you. But I am afraid you wouldn’t stop with our planet. So, if you colonise all the planets in the universe, you would have no friends. This means you would have to deal with problems all alone. We emphasise co-operation on our planet. Therefore, we should become friends forever and we will have a bright future.
