Global Warming/ FBI Secrets

A remarkable discovery has emerged in astrophysics: key properties of the universe have just the right values to make life possible. Most scientists prefer to explain away this uniqueness, insisting that a number of unseen universes must therefore exist, each randomly different. Astrophysicist Bernard Haisch joined George Knapp in the first half of the show to propose the alternative—that the special properties of our universe reflect an underlying intelligent consciousness.

In the second half of the program, veteran journalist Chris Taylor talked about how the Star Wars franchise has conquered our culture with a sense of lightness and exuberance, while remaining serious enough to influence politics, and spread a spirituality that appeals to religious groups and atheists alike.

Global Warming/ FBI Secrets

Show Archive
Date: Monday - August 6, 2012
Host: George Noory
Guests: Dr. Roy Spencer, Ronald Kessler

In the first half, former senior scientist for Climate Studies at NASA, Dr. Roy Spencer, reacted to claims of new evidence that recent warming and hotter weather is indeed the fault of humans. Both Berkeley climate scientist Richard Muller and James Hansen of NASA make the mistake of thinking that global warming is due to man-made activity, he commented. "Correlation doesn't mean causation," Spencer argued, noting that heat waves and drought are part of natural cycles, such as was experienced in the 1930s in the US, as well as going back further in time in North America.

Climate scientists don't know what causes natural cycles, so they seek to blame warming on something tangible, such as greenhouse gases, and doggedly pursue the man-made explanation, without considering other theories, Spencer continued. He suggested that changes in circulation patterns have altered the amount of cloud cover which reflects sunlight, "and I think that could be most of what we've been...attributing to mankind," in terms of warming.

In the latter half, investigative reporter Ronald Kessler discussed his research into the FBI, and the Secret Service, and revealed behind-the-scenes stories, and secrets about how they operate. He portrayed the FBI's long-running chief J. Edgar Hoover as both a patriot and a menace. "Near the end, he was getting more and more idiosyncratic," and actually started a vendetta against FBI agents drinking coffee, he said. The FBI employed clever and complicated ways to break into suspects home. For instance, in the case of a Mafia family they were investigating, they introduced static on their phone line, and intercepted the call when the suspect dialed the phone company for repair. Then, FBI agents came to the home posing as telephone repairmen, and installed bugs in their phone while "fixing" the static, Kessler detailed.

One of the fascinating stories he learned about the Secret Service was that they were tipped off about a psychic's vision that Pres. George H.W. Bush could be assassinated when he was giving a speech in Enid, OK. When the agents interviewed the psychic, she correctly led them to the airport hangar where the motorcade limos were hidden, and then predicted that Bush would be wearing a sports coat instead of a suit (which was very out-of-character for him) when he got off Air Force One. When that was confirmed, they decided to change the motorcade route, avoiding any overpasses where she said the shooting would happen.

Contrary to conspiracy theories, Clinton White House aide Vince Foster did commit suicide, Kessler announced. One-week before his death, during a disagreement with Hillary Clinton at a meeting with other top aides, he was humiliated when she called him a "small town hick lawyer." After that, his behavior changed dramatically, and he became much more withdrawn, and tearful. The FBI concluded that it was the meeting with Hillary that triggered his suicide, he said.
