The Archaeology Of Sin

Largely preserved under the ash from the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD, the excavated city of Pompeii offered a unique snapshot of Roman life, and works of art which left archeologists stunned. Robert Sepehr is an anthropologist and author.

The Cenozoic’s Coolest Fossils

The supervolcano we now call Yellowstone Park, was transformative, dynamic and dangerous, but it was also responsible for some of the continent’s most amazing fossil deposits during the Cenozoic Era. Host Kallie Moore elaborates on PBS Eons.

The Doom Can’t Be Stopped

Why are we seeing an upsurge in earthquakes? Volcanic eruptions? Fires? Lisa Haven says these freaky earthly upheavals were predicted in the Bible. They are happening now, just like the Bible predicted. More of these events are coming, and they can’t be stopped!

Mars is Really Hostile to Life

The Physics Girl, Dianna Cowern, caught up with UCLA planetary geologist Raquel Nuno to discuss the many ways that Mars is actually a death trap for humans. One of the most surprising ways that Mars is hostile, Nuno says, is its wild tilt.

While the Earth’s tilt is generally 23 degrees, Mars bounces chaotically between zero and 60 degrees, dramatically affecting the planet’s atmosphere, which would in turn dramatically affect human colonizers. Then there’s harmful radiation and the solar system’s largest volcano! Tune in to more details with Cowern and Nuno on PBS Digital.

Could California Face Tsunamis?

What’s the worst case scenario if the Cascadia Subduction Zone lets loose and volcanos, earthquakes and tsunamis are unleashed? Filmmaker, book author and renowned radio host Steve Quayle warns, “The amount of damage, and I am going to choose my words carefully, is going to be precedent setting. It’s going to be the combination of volcanos going off that are inland from the subduction zone where the plates meet, coupled with tsunamis. . . . When this happens, you will lose eight million to twenty million people. When it happens, you will lose all productivity in the electronic field, obviously Silicon Valley, and all food production in all of California, Oregon and Washington. When it happens, you will have a State of Emergency unlike any other. How about the refugees? There will be 3.5 million refugees to take care of. When this happens, what happens to the underground aquifers, and where does everybody go for fresh water? There will be years of drought, years of famine and years of water, water where did it all go? It is a very dire situation painted by computer models. This is not a sensational thing. It is a reality based, scientific study with the application of what happens.”

Quayle warns that the public would likely have roughly “15 minutes to get to safety,” and “the tsunami waves would be 500 to 1,500 feet tall.”

Quayle is putting his trailer film out now even though the film project is not going to be done until the early part of 2020. He is doing this as a public warning.

Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with renowned radio host, author and filmmaker Steve Quayle.

This is one of the most eye-opening and sobering interviews you will ever hear. The startling information shared here affects every single person in the United Staes, and every single person on earth. Listen as SGTReport discusses the California fires with Deborah Tavares in a video called Fires: Behind the Smoke: The Death Agenda.


Snowball Earth

More than 600 million years ago, ice sheets covered our planet on both land and sea, with temperatures dipping to -130 degrees celsius. And there was no escaping the cold at the equator, where temperatures fell below zero!

Amazingly, this happened twice in the Cryogenian Period. So what happened? “The most popular theory is that our planet thermostat just failed,” says PBS Eons narrator Kallie Moore. “That thermostat is the carbon cycle, the flopping back and forth of carbon between the atmosphere and the Earth’s crust, and it starts with volcanoes.” Tune in to learn the details.

The Potential Of Magma Power

With the constant debate over which sources of energy our country should harness, Hank Green, of SciShow, has a valid suggestion: Why not volcanic power? “One of the most massively powerful forces we have here on Earth, a store of energy so gigantic that it liquifies trillions upon trillions of tons of rock, and  is independent from the sun’s energy output. It’s the pressure of the Earth pushing down on itself, heating its interior to such dramatic temperatures that every once in a while a pimple (volcano) will erupt on its surface, spewing rock kilometers into the air. If only we could capture that energy.”

Will Mt. Fuji Erupt?

A 300-foot crack alongside a road leading up Mt. Fuji in Japan has spurred fears that the landmark volcano will erupt again for the first time in more than 300 years. Last year’s massive earthquake has greatly heightened the instability of the magma chamber beneath the mountain.
