We're in the middle of one of the most extraordinary 12 months in the modern history of weather. Right now, a huge solar storm is brewing on the far side of the sun. For the past few years, the number of strong earthquakes has been rising. Due to climate problems, food production is faltering and there is unrest and upheaval in more countries...

A month ago a young man in Tunsia attempted to sell fruit on a streetcorner because he was broke. He was an educated member of the middle class and had been prepared for a life as a professional. He was forced off the street by the police and set himself on fire. He died. The rest is history, as Tunisians took to the streets, the local...

The second colossal winter storm of the winter is slamming the eastern half of the United States. The greatest cyclone in Australian history is hitting Queensland in Australia. These events come during one of the most intense winters in recorded history, after a summer that was among the hottest on record. The whole situation seems like a chapter...

Once again, there are rumors that some sort of official admission of an alien presence might take place. I don't wish to speculate on that, but if it does happen, then there will be a greater possibility of open contact. Initially, all of the change is liable to be on our side of the equation, but, if it does lead to more open contact, two things...

I am not a prophet. I have no crystal ball. But that doesn't mean that I can't look into the future and see probabilities, so I'd like to make some predictions that I hope will prove accurate and useful. Economy. World economic growth will be impeded by increasing commodity and fuel prices. This is because there are not enough resources to...

Anne and I have just come back from a month-long driving trip to my home state of Texas, and I have never been so terrified in my life. From what we experienced in Texas, the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords today in Arizona doesn't surprise me at all. The atmosphere was completely different from the way it was when we lived...

I have seen 65 Christmases and remember 61 of them, and yet every year at this time, I find myself deeply moved and filled with an upwelling of hope and joy that is quite unquenchable, and is as intense right now as it was when I was a little boy, looking up into the stars of the holy night, half expecting to see Jesus and half expecting to...

My appearance on Coast-to-Coast AM on December 20 and my last journal entry resulted in some ferociously angry email from climate change deniers, as well as some more considered letters. Most of the 'denier' email had an element of hysteria about it, which I associate with fear. In fact, it was pitiful, the sound of people shrieking in terror. And...

We are in the early stages of sudden climate change, and unless something unexpected prevents it, the next few years are likely to see dramatic changes in the weather on Planet Earth, changes at least as great as those that led to the Little Ice Age. Paradoxically, this is an effect of global warming. There is also a natural cycle involved, but we...

Julian Assange has said that there are references to UFOs in some of the documents he is still holding, but he has not said what these documents may contain. Personally, I would be very surprised if any diplomatic documents contained more than a passing reference to UFOs, perhaps a disparaging comment about a world leader or other official who...

The US banking system is in very serious trouble. In fact, as an institution, American banking is probably broke. The reason is incompetent management of foreclosures. Two things have gone wrong. First, banks have carried foreclosed properties at unrealistic valuations. Second, millions of titles have been thrown into uncertainty by flawed...

We might well be part of a much larger and older supercivilization that has reasons of its own not to explain itself to us, or perhaps cannot explain itself to us, in the same sense that we could never, without massive and fundamental re-education, explain radio to an ancient Roman. Or explain it at all to a chimpanzee, but let's hope that the...

Western civilization is in the doghouse. Its popularity among intellectuals has dropped to an all-time low. To the far left, it's invalidated by its historical prejudices. To the far right, it's annoyingly insistent on freedom for all--even the far left. Politicians give lip-service to freedom, but the enormous government bureaucracies that are...

Since my discovery, after my close encounter, that the US government was engaged in a massive program of lying and denial, I have not taken much interest in conventional politics. My interest has been directed toward finding out why it has chosen this route, and in my new nonfiction book, coming out next year, I am going to lay out exactly why...

On this ninth anniversary of the 911 attack, American anger is more intense than it has been in many years. In part, this is because of the mosque that is being built near the site of the World Trade Center, and in part it's because we have been under threat now for a long time, and the threat remains as unsettling now as it was nine years ago....

When is a dream not a dream? When it's so powerful that it seems real, or perhaps so bizarre that it seems beyond imagination? This one was both, and I thought that I would take the step of recording it here, actually without knowing quite why. I don't know that it will ever happen this way. Or maybe, somewhere else in space and time, perhaps it...

Last week, Anne and I attended the Summer Lectures in Devizes as speakers, and also had one of the premiere experiences of our lives. She discusses her part of it in her recent diary, and I will talk about my part of it a little here, but will describe a lot further what happened in an audio that I'll place in our subscriber section next week....

If we survive the oil spill, we have to find a way to make the free enterprise system work with balanced and effective regulation, or something, at some point, is going to kill us all. In point of fact, the pressure of the oil coming out of the well is so great that it could cause the entire reservoir of oil to burst open, which will destroy a...

My new book the Omega Point comes out on June 22, and I must say, it seems a very odd time for it. The story revolves around changes on the sun that are gradually making life on earth impossible, and it asks the questions, what is the last judgment, and, more importantly, is there a plan for us? This week's New Scientist came in the mail, and I...

For the first time in 25 years, I have just had a perfectly clean out-of-body movement. I was listening to music--some old folksongs--when I found myself standing in the middle of the living room. I was confused; when did I get up from the chair. Then I saw sitting there an odd looking old man in pajamas, staring straight ahead, his eyes black...

Every few weeks, it seems, another announcement appears claiming that some authoritative group, usually involving the pope, the president, Edgar Mitchell and whomever, is about to announce that UFOs are no longer unknown, but are alien craft. I've been hearing about pending announcements like this for as long as I've had an interest in the...

The implant that was removed from "John Smith" last year was not made of materials that are available on earth. To be specific, certain of the isotopes of the metallic components of the object do not have the same ratios as isotopes found on this planet. There has been an excellent study of the object done at the highest level of scientific...

There is no apparent relationship between this week's Dreamland and the show that will air next week, but, in fact, the two are profoundly related because they end two related controversies, which are, without question, the most important in the world. The scientific community and the mass media will not react. Nobody is going to send up rockets....

As this is being written, unknown lights have appeared over Lake Erie in full view of the Cleveland shoreline nine nights in a row. So far, queries to NASA, the US Air Force and the FAA by local media have been answered with the response, 'we don't know.' Whether or not these lights will eventually be explained in a conventional manner I don't...

For the first time in our modern history, the United States is vulnerable to the destruction of its currency and the end of its role as a world power. The last time the US currency was as vulnerable was when the British invaded during the War of 1812, but at that time the dollar was very far from being the world's reserve currency, and the country...

On February 13, 2003, Anne and I sent each other valentines, she in Anne's Diary, me in this journal. In subsequent years, we celebrated each Valentine's Day with a private affirmation of our love, but today I want to share it once again. We met in April of 1969, so this is our fortieth Valentine's Day together.

It's the end of another decade, and a time like the late eighties when, if things were to fall together right, the visitors might become a more public presence in our world. So I have been thinking a great deal about what this may mean. On the one hand, I look back on my own experiences and I reflect that, as hard as it was, I got a lot out of it...

Over the past year, UFO activity has increased in intensity and complexity, and the crop circle phenomenon has become so extensive in southern England that it is beginning to cause significant cash damage to crops. Recently, I have begun to notice stirrings among some institutions that would suggest a renewed interest in the possibility of contact...

It is Christmas eve, and I'm enjoying the deep peace of an evening with my family, and I am thinking about this beautiful season and the hope that it brings, and also about people celebrating the season around the world under very different circumstances. These are the Christian communities in peril in places like southern Sudan, Iraq, Iran,...

Recently, the disclosure community, such as it is, has been beating the drums about official announcements of a UFO presence on this or that imminent date. November 14, November 27, December 10--all were claimed as the big date when the President of the United States would go before the world and announce that aliens are indeed among us and the U....
