For more than 40 years, Prof. Peter Ward has been active in paleontology, biology, and more recently, astrobiology. In the first half, he talked about killer volcanoes like the recent Tonga eruption and subsequent tsunami, as well as warming waters and melting ice. The Tonga volcano erupted with such force that scientists are giving it a new designation based on its energy output. Perhaps we shouldn't be surprised, said Ward, because the biggest volcanic eruptions have all occurred in the Pacific ring of fire. The most dangerous volcano is the Yellowstone caldera-- it's bigger than anything we've seen in history, he noted, except for what happened during the Permian extinction (around 250 million years ago). If Yellowstone was to erupt (on average between every 600,000 – 700,000 years- and we are now due), the planet would have just six weeks notice, with increasing telltale earthquakes in the area.

Large swaths of North America would be uninhabitable if Yellowstone exploded, with copious amounts of ash in the atmosphere. Planes would no longer be able to fly, and the catastrophic effects on agriculture would lead to the death of around 2/3 of the global population, he warned. Regarding global warming, we know for certain that sea levels will keep rising, which will have severe impacts on human civilization, Ward cited. The financial costs of moving roads, airports, and infrastructure away from the coastlines will be enormous. We will have a rise of 3-5 ft. by 2100 in a best-case scenario but if certain Antarctic ice sheets melt we could see a devastating 10 ft. sea level rise within just five years, he added.

Marcus Allen is the UK publisher of Nexus Magazine and an expert on the Apollo moon missions. In the latter half, he shared his skepticism about the moon landings as they were presented to the public — and evidence he believes demonstrates that the missions were faked. He learned that photographic film cannot survive in the vacuum of space without being pressurized. Where was the pressure on the Hasselblad cameras carried by the astronauts on the lunar surface? Allen asked. There wasn't any, he stated, because if there was, the cameras would have each needed to be surrounded by a container. The twelve main astronauts took some 5,771 photos on the lunar surface over their six missions, but the vacuum levels on the moon would have destroyed the unpressurized film, he pointed out.

Allen questioned if the moon rocks brought back by NASA were genuinely from there, or perhaps collected in Antarctica instead. And how were the acknowledged dangers of radiation in space overcome when no protection was built into the Apollo space craft, or the spacesuits used by astronauts? he further pondered. NASA may have hoaxed the missions because they determined it would be nearly impossible to meet Pres. Kennedy's challenge to land a man on the moon by the end of the decade, and return them safely. The live landing TV broadcast in 1969 also seemed suspicious to Allen, because the average TV transmitter in that era only had a radius of around 60 miles, and the moon was some 240,000 miles away.
