'Solar Flare-Ups': Petitions Over UFOs and Weather Cuts
CNBC.com | March 08, 2012 | 05:25 PM EST

A petition to investigate little green men is getting more signatures than meteorologists petitioning against National Weather Service budget cuts on the White House’s petition website.

Stephen Bassett, the executive director of The Paradigm Research Group, submitted a petition calling on the government to formally acknowledge an extraterrestrial presence among the human race .

“Not telling the public the truth dramatically affects the truth in the government,” said Bassett.

“The withholding of truth about an ET presence was justified during the cold war as a matter of national security and that is understandable. However, the cold war is over, and that is no longer acceptable that something as profound as this could be withheld from the public.”

Bassett said he doesn’t want money, he just wants the government to come clean. More than 5,700 people apparently believe the truth is out there, too.

X-Files jokes aside, it’s serious business.

The National Weather Service employees union launched its petition to prevent budget cuts on February 16. It’s seeing stars over a White House plan to reduce its budget by tens of millions of dollars.
