Exxon-Mobil Under Investigation for Climate Change Coverup
An investigation has been launched by the New York Attorney General against oil and gas corporation Exxon-Mobil, into allegations that the company lied to the public about the effects of fossil fuels on the Earth's climate, and to investors, regarding how said change might affect their business. Exxon-Mobil was subpoenaed earlier this month to hand over documents relevant to the case, including emails and financial records.
Nazi Gold Train Site Being Prepped for Excavation
The Polish city of Walbrzych has a local legend of a train that was buried by the Nazis toward the close of World War II, laden with looted treasure, to hide it from the advancing Russian army. Last August, two treasure hunters announced that they may have uncovered the resting place of this legendary locomotive, and now engineers are preparing to excavate the site.
Acting on the deathbed confession of a man who claims to have witnessed the loading of the train, treasure hunters Piotr Koper and Andreas Richter used ground-penetrating radar equipment in the indicated area near the city of Walbrzych. They indeed found a train-shaped object in an embankment, near the existing rail line that runs near the city.
The Path of the Tarot, Part 4
Last week, Whitley explained the descending branch of the Tarot cross, ruled by the High Priestess and ending in the card of Judgment. This week, he discusses the left hand path, ruled by the Emperor and dominated by chance and chaos. It is the past that the entire living world is on, which leads along its directionless way to destruction. But the Tarot, uniquely, also offers a clear vision of how to escape from the left hand path, which is outlined in the ascending branch of the Tarot cross and the right hand path. But do we really want to leave the left hand path, to find out way beyond material life and the randomness that governs it? Truthfully, very few of us are attracted to this higher direction. But it's there, and next week we will begin to explore it.
Weather System with 5,400 MPH Winds Recorded -- On Another Planet!
A team of researchers have announced they have completed a map of a previously unknown weather system. Unlike other known weather systems however, this map has recorded wind speeds of 5,400 mph, on a planet 63 light-years away.
This new weather map, generated by astrophysicists at the University of Warwick, in Coventry, England, is of exoplanet HD 189733 b. This is a gas giant that is 14% larger than Jupiter, orbiting the star HD 189733 A, found in the constellation of Vulpecula. It is very close to it's parent star -- nearly 13 times closer than Mercury is to the Sun -- and orbits it's star every 2.2 days.
The Path of the Tarot, Part 3
Part Three of the Path of the Tarot. Here, Whitley Strieber describes the triad of the lower branch of the Tarot cross: The Lover, the Devil and Death, and the forth card that emerges when the three are in balance: Judgment. But what are the hidden energies that give this triad its power. Next week, we examine the Left Hand Path.
"Here, Chupacabra, C'Mon Fella" Nick Redfern is on the Hunt!
Let's take a break from high intensity Dreamlands and go on a road trip this week. But—whoa—it's with Nick Redfern, and isn't he,
well, a monster hunter? He is indeed, and fasten your seatbelts, it's gonna be a bumpy ride as we traverse the narrow mountain roads of Puerto Rico in search of the legendary goat-sucker.
Current El Niño is a Record-Breaker, Expected to Result in Record La Niña Next Year
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has released their temperature data for the Pacific Ocean, confirming that the current El Niño is the hottest ever recorded. Unfortunately, this also may guarantee that the current cycle will result in a prolonged La Niña event in the later half of 2016.
The previous record-holding El Niño period was the week of November 26, 1997, where surface temperatures were recorded at 2.8°C. The new record, for the week ending November 09, 2015, hit an even 3.0°C above normal – over seven percent higher than the previous record. This will result in more severe weather patterns in the US southwest, and possible drought conditions in Australia and Indonesia.
Demons and--Oh, Yes--Angels!
Thursday November 19, 2015
We started this week's edition of the show with the intention of speaking about sensory deprivation chambers but we never quite got there. Why? Because this week's guest, Mark, has had a series of incidents wherein he thought he was being guided by angels and demons, separate from the inner conflicting voices we all have when it comes time to make deep decisions. And that, it turns out, was well worth talking about.
Presidents and UFOs
This is bar none one of the best UFO shows ever to appear on Dreamland or anywhere. Larry Holcombe's the Presidents and UFOs
has already been optioned for the movies by Sony Pictures, and for good reasons: it is a startlingly insightful, brilliantly researched journey through the secret history of the presidential struggle with the UFO phenomenon.
Is Bigfoot in England, Too?
While Sasquatch sightings are traditionally reported in North America, it turns out that the elusive humanoid crops up in England, too. Earlier this month, Caroline Toms was walking her dog through Angmering Park Estate in Sussex, England, when the border collie started barking and took off into the woods. It was then that Toms saw what she describes as a Bigfoot-like creature.
"I only had my camera out because I was taking pictures of Ash playing. She came running back quick-as-a-flash though. I don't know what it was, but when I had a closer look at the pictures, it certainly does look like Bigfoot to me."
