Part I: THE PHOENIX LIGHTS: 15TH ANNIVERSARY
Richard and Victor Viggiani, director of Zland News Network discuss the 15th anniversary of The Phoenix Lights. The Phoenix Lights (sometimes called the “Lights over Phoenix”) were a series of widely sighted unidentified flying objects observed in the skies over the U.S. states of Arizona, Nevada and the Mexican state of Sonora on March 13, 1997.
Lights of varying descriptions were seen by thousands of people between 19:30 and 22:30 MST, in a space of about 300 miles (480 km), from the Nevada line, through Phoenix, to the edge of Tucson. There were two distinct events involved in the incident: a triangular formation of lights seen to pass over the state, and a series of stationary lights seen in the Phoenix area. The USAF identified the second group of lights as flares dropped by A-10 Warthog aircraft that were on training exercises at the Barry Goldwater Range in southwest Arizona. Witnesses claim to have observed a huge carpenter’s square-shaped UFO containing five spherical lights or possibly light-emitting engines. Fife Symington the govenor at the time, was one witness to this incident; he later called the object “otherworldly.”
UFO buffs call it the most documented and important mass sighting ever recorded. But still today, the military and government can only offer questionable explanations as to what the anomalous lights truly were. In 12 years, the strange phenomena have never been duplicated or reenacted [although the military tried fruitlessly, three years after the mass sighting]. Many experts and witnesses insist that what appeared in the Arizona skies was something beyond this world.
Part II: FUKUSHIMA NUCLEAR MELTDOWN, ONE YEAR LATER
Richard welcomes investigative journalist Greg Palast, investigate reporter and former chief investigator for nuclear racketeering cases for the U.S. Greg has the inside scoop on the Fukushima Nuclear Meltdown story you didn’t hear in mainstream media. Greg has the senior engineer’s notebook from the company building and testing most nuclear plants in the West (including Fukushima ) that, “no way on earth, could stand an earthquake.” But could this disaster been prevented? Greg Palast knows it could have and has the evidence to prove it. Greg received this information has from a senior engineer at Shaw Construction, the company that built the Fukushima plant. Here are the facts:
-This nuclear plant will melt down in an earthquake—The plant dismally failed to meet the Seismic I (shaking) standards required by U.S. and international rules.
-The “SQ” had been faked.
-SQ is nuclear-speak for “Seismic Qualification.” A seismically qualified nuclear plant won’t melt down if you shake it. You can’t run a nuclear reactor in the USA or Europe or Japan without certified SQ.
-The law is clear. It is a crime not to report a safety failure.
-Fixing the seismic problem would have cost the plant’s owner half a billion dollars easy.
This is the REAL story and your listeners need to know the truth! The full story can be found in Greg’s new book, Vultures’ Picnic.
