Happy New Year! – Our subscribers received a couple of great Christmas presents this year, and now we have a New Year’s present for EVERYONE who loves this website and our great radio shows and podcasts. First, a post-Christmas message about a problem that surprisingly few people are aware of: There are Christian communities in peril all over the world. Next, a message about a topic that especially concerns the readers of this website: The potential for contact and why interaction with aliens may depend upon the state of human brains. Don’t miss this great gift from Whitley for the New Year.

Plant trees! – One of the most important things we can do to save our cities from global warming in the future is to plant more trees now.

Most large US cities, including Atlanta, are warming at more than twice the rate of the planet as a whole, a rate that is mostly attributable to land use change. As a result, emissions reduction programs like the cap and trade program under consideration by the US Congress may not sufficiently slow climate change in large cities where most people live.”

For those who are deaf or hard of hearing, cell phone use has largely been limited to text messaging. But the future is here: Researchers have created cell phones that allow deaf people to communicate in American Sign Language (ASL). And a new Danish study addresses the controversial topic of whether or not cells are dangerous, and pronounces them OK (and they’re probably OK to use in airplanes too!)

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. Over the past six months, a number of people with interest in UFOs have announced that “disclosure is imminent.”

So there’s some smoke. Is there any fire?
