Last Show Recap

Energy Independence

First Half: Grant Cameron, who has for decades dedicated himself to researching what American presidents have known about the UFO phenomena, has reached the conclusion that presidents' denying knowledge is just a cover, and that they actually have known and do know the truth. Cameron joined George Knapp to discuss how the Clintons have been the most open about their handling of the mystery and the role of Clinton's campaign manager.

Second Half: Christopher Mellon spent nearly 20 years in the federal government serving in various national security positions. For the first time, he has spoken publicly about his experiences within government as they relate to UFOs. He discussed his experiences in the intelligence community and his belief that there is no organized coverup, but simply a strong reluctance to deal with the subject.

Energy Independence

Show Archive
Date: Tuesday - December 4, 2007
Host: George Noory
Guests: Gunnar Thompson, Robert Zubrin

Aerospace engineer Robert Zubrin, the author of Energy Victory, presented his strategy to cut our dependence on foreign oil. He argued for a mandate to produce cars that run on flex fuel (accepting a mix of gasoline and alcohol fuels such as methanol or ethanol). By offering an alternative fuel to gasoline, the oil cartel would be forced to be competitive in their prices, he said. If more flex cars were produced, gas stations would begin selling ethanol or methanol to meet the demand, he added.

By being less dependent on such countries as Saudi Arabia for their oil, we would have more leverage for combating terrorism, Zubrin stated. Increased production of methanol and ethanol would be a boon to American farmers, as well as poorer countries who could produce the fuel from crops such as sugar. He noted that flex fuel cars have taken off in Brazil which has ethanol stations all over their country.

The presidential candidates aside from Hillary Clinton, have not addressed the flex fuel issue, Zubrin reported, and he suggested that people in upcoming primary states ask candidates if they would support a mandate for the cars (which only cost $100 more to manufacture than non-flex fuel vehicles). Zubrin also touched on his work as an advocate for Mars exploration.

1507 Map Names America

In the first half-hour, archeologist Gunnar Thompson discussed a 500-year old map, made by a German cartographer, that was first to use the name "America." The map accurately depicts South America and the Atlantic and Pacific oceans-- yet Thompson noted that the Chinese made a similar map nearly a century earlier. The Chinese had access to telescopes, kites, rockets and flares for use in their mapmaking, he reported.
