Second hour guest, an expert in Earth's energy systems, Michael Sunanda spoke about climate, agriculture, and Earth changes. An advocate for permaculture (sustainable living), he suggested that modern farming and deforestation are contributing factors to climate change. Further, he contended that farming methods are causing foods to become too acidic, which makes people sick. He recommended the book Food Not Lawns, for tips on how to turn your yard into a garden.
Climate science based on computer modeling doesn't include factors such as cataclysmic cycles, Sunanda commented. The Earth is moving to a new position in the galaxy which can be associated with axis changes and pole shifts, he noted.
Appearing in the second-half of the program, geologist Jim Berkland talked about earthquakes. Animals can react to quakes between 10 days to three weeks in advance of the event, and he postulated this may be due to the magnetite in their bodies sensing a change in the magnetic field. Lights in the sky may also precede quakes-- such lights were photographed in Japan, he reported.
Berkland declared July 29th through August 5th, 2008 to be the next window of seismic activity. In particular, he said a total eclipse on August 1st will bring high tides that can exert stress on the earth's crusts.
First hour guest, researcher Budd Hopkins shared an update on UFOs and alien abduction. He noted that aliens are associated with deception-- they don't reveal their place of origin or goals. Hopkins will be presenting a field investigator training workshop at the upcoming MUFON Symposium in San Jose.
