Stephen Hawking's latest preprint on Arxiv uses "Euclidean Quantum Gravity". In fact, he says:

"I adopt the Euclidean approach [5], the only sane way to do quantum gravity nonperturbatively."

Any comments?

Yes, that's the whole point. The quantum theory treatment of gravity (or the electro-magnetic force) is inconsistent with general relativity.
