Earth Life Threats

Melvin Dummar says a grand conspiracy has denied him his portion of billionaire Howard Hughes' vast estate. Many consider Dummar to be a fraud but an in-depth investigation by Gary Magnesen has apparently shown Dummar to be a good samaritan who saved Hughes from certain death. Both joined George Knapp to discuss why Hughes was in the desert, as well as those who schemed to deny Dummar and several institutions of their rightful share of the Hughes estate. In the first hour, veteran music journalist Joel Selvin talked about the notorious Rolling Stones Altamont concert of 1969, considered by many to be rock’s darkest day.

Earth Life Threats

Show Archive
Date: Friday - February 23, 2007
Host: George Noory
Guests: Linda Moulton Howe, Open Lines

During the first half of the program, George spoke with Linda Moulton Howe, who presented her report on Earth life threats.

Linda first touched base on the alarming disappearance of honey bees in the United States. Scientists, beekeepers and government bee specialists have never seen so many deserted honey bee hives as there are now, she reported, and no one knows why.

Linda went on to speak about the "Noah's Ark" seed vault project, which is being built inside a cold mountain on the archipelago of Svalbard, Norway, in the Arctic. Construction begins in March and is expected to be finished by October this year. The project is being paid for by the Norwegian government, in affiliation with the U. N.'s Food and Agricultural Organization's Global Crop Diversity Trust. Linda said the fear is that global warming will keep increasing over this century, turning some farm land into desert, flooding other low grounds and generally changing growing seasons, rainfall and insects. She said many plants won't be able to survive the rapid changes. Some scientists fear that even the Amazon rainforest might not survive into the next century. If we lose the diversity of crops we have now, Linda explained, we could end up seriously depleting this planet's future food and medical supplies.

In the final 2 hours of the show, George opened up a special 'Horror & Sci-Fi' discussion as part of Open Lines, as well as listed the top 10 films of all time in those two genres.
