The Mystery of the Alien Images

May 24, 2015
I have been reading The Fairy Tradition in Britain by Lewis Spence at the same time that the Roswell Slides drama has been unfolding. I don’t find it surprising that the assumption that any nonhuman remains or artifacts would be indications that aliens from another plant must be here is so universal. But I certainly ... continued

The Roswell Slides

May 7, 2015
The Roswell Slides may be images of the mummy of a two year old human child, according to the placard beside the body, that researchers involved said during, before and after the presentation could not be deciphered. As our news story reveals, it was indeed possible to decipher it–assuming that the work done on it ... continued

Super Natural: A New Vision of the Unexplained

April 24, 2015
I have completed Super Natural with my collaborator, Jeff Kripal, the Religion Chair at Rice University. It’s going to be published by Tarcher/Penguin in February of 2016. continued

Climate Change and Pope Francis

March 29, 2015
I have been writing about the dangers of climate change since I published Nature’s End with Jim Kunetka in 1985. It was considered overstated. When Art and I published Superstorm, it was considered overstated. It turns out that neither book was overstated. In fact, both were understated. Climate change is happening much faster than we ... continued

Disclosure: Are We Ready?

February 23, 2015
When in his final tweet as a presidential adviser, John Podesta said that he was disappointed that he had been unable to achieve release of still secret UFO files in 2014, the general media at first assumed that it was a joke. When his past record on the subject became clear and it was realized that ... continued

Anne: Lady in Autumn

January 9, 2015
I am sitting here in Anne’s hospital room reflecting on the forty-five years of our marriage and all she has accomplished and all she has given. She lies beside me sleeping. Mostly now, that’s what she does. Her body is in need of profound healing, and sleep is a natural response to the trauma of ... continued

The Reality behind Interstellar–Not What You’d Expect

December 8, 2014
I have been thinking long and hard about the close encounter experience and what it means. For some months now, I’ve been working on a new book that has caused me to re-read and re-think all of my past experiences, and to integrate some new ones. I have also come to reassess the evidence from the ... continued

Something Wicked This Way Comes

October 6, 2014
We have reached the climate tipping point much more quickly than anybody anticipated. But with methane outgassing in arctic tundra and beginning to boil up from under the Arctic Ocean, Greenland ice turning black due to lack of snowfall, and rapid warming of northern waters, the stage is set. Nobody has any idea when dramatic changes will ... continued

An Extremely Dangerous Time

September 8, 2014
It’s no secret that this particular anniversary of 911 is as dangerous a time as we have faced in years. ISIL has recruited possibly more than a thousand people carrying US passports, who can enter and leave this country at will. There is no evidence that US intelligence knows who they all are, or perhaps ... continued

The Methane Danger

August 28, 2014
This is a journal entry I hoped I would never have to write. For most of my career, I have been fighting to prevent this, to slow it down or at least to plan for it. What is happening is that methane hydrates are melting in the Arctic Ocean and along the US Atlantic seaboard. The ... continued
