Climate Catastrophe

Heidi Cullen-Climatologist/Enivronmental Journalist

With much of the east coast smothered in a heat wave this July, it should come as no surprise that 2010 is well on its way to being the hottest year on record.  The warming trend that many climate change skeptics felt had been disrupted by a snowy winter is clearly back in a big way, which begs the question, is this the forecast we can expect from now on? 

Heidi Cullen, one of America’s leading climatologists and environmental journalists, has the answers.  In her groundbreaking new book, THE WEATHER OF THE FUTURE: Heat Waves, Extreme Storms, and Other Scenes from a Climate-Changed Planet (Harper; August 3rd), she provides a fascinating and instructive look at how our world will look in 2050 if the current levels of carbon emissions are maintained.

Cullen’s provocative book offers new insight into the issue of climate change and demonstrates that it is not merely a phenomenon that will affect future generations, but one that is occurring right now in the very places where we live and work.

Her engrossing and accessible work illustrates that climate change is a serious issue that impacts humans all across the world, including in our own backyards.

Heidi Cullen is interim CEO and lead correspondent for Climate Central. Prior to that, she was the climate expert and correspondent for The Weather Channel where she helped start Forecast Earth, the first weekly program on climate change and the environment. Before joining The Weather Channel she worked as a scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado. She received a B.Sc. in engineering and operations research from Columbia University and a Ph.D. in climatology and ocean-atmosphere dynamics from Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. She was awarded the 2008 National Conservation Achievement Award for science by the National Wildlife Federation

A Spiritual Awakening

Best selling author-Dani Shapiro, unveils her newest book "Devotion: A Memoir"

Forty something Dani Shapiro was leading a seemingly idyllic life-she had a wonderful child, a husband who adored her and a thriving writing career. So why was she waking up panicked in the middle of the night? Raised in a deeply religious home, Dani had fled all that at the earliest opportunity.

But then when she was in mid-life her young son asked “Do you believe in God? Or heaven? What happens when we die?” Dani realized that she had no answers for her son, and was failing him. So she embarked on a two year quest to figure out what she actually believed. She didn’t go to India, or Tibet, or Thailand-she simply looked in her own backyard for answers to life’s deepest questions.

Best Selling Author Dani Shapiro will discuss five important lessons that will help us find meaning in today’s world, which she now shares in her new book “Devotion: A Memoir”

About Dani Shapiro

Dani Shapiro is the author of five novels and the best-selling memoir Slow Motion. She has also written for magazines such as the New Yorker, The Oprah Magazine, Vogue, and ELLE.

The Return of Maitreya

Renowned British Artist and Philosopher

On December 12, 2008-Share International distributed a news release to the world’s media announcing that in the very near future a large, bright star would appear in the sky, visible throughout the world both night and day.

Since early January 2009, sightings of the star began to be reported from Brazil, Norway, Britain, the United States, South Korea, and Japan, with more and more sightings being sent to Share International daily.

Hundreds of videos of the star are showing up on YouTube, newspaper reports about an unusual object in the sky have appeared in some newspapers, and blogs are appearing on the Internet asking what it could be.

Join us for an intellectual and spiritual conversation with Benjamin Creme, a renowned British Artist and Esoteric Philosopher, as he describes his role as the messenger for the emergence of Maitreya,the World Teacher.

About Benjamin Creme

Benjamin Creme, a British artist and long-time student of esoteric philosophy, has become the principal source of information about the emergence of Maitreya, the World Teacher.

Creme’s books on the reappearance of the Christ have been translated into seven languages and are published throughout the world by groups responding to his message. He is also co-editor of Share International, a monthly magazine that focuses on the political, economic, social and spiritual changes now occurring globally. The magazine is read in more than 70 countries. Benjamin Creme receives no payment for this work and makes no claims about his own spiritual status.

These facts, along with his authenticity, intelligence and humor, lend credibility to an otherwise incredible story, and prompt dozens of well-known broadcast personalities to agree with Canadian Broadcasting host/producer, Max Allen, who said: “The Maitreya story is important and Creme is an admirable spokesman.”

Born in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1922, Benjamin Creme began studying art at an early age, developing into an accomplished painter in the modernist style.

He befriended and collaborated with many of the leading figures of the time in British art, music and literature. His paintings have been exhibited in a number of prestigious galleries.

Video: Benjamin Creme discusses the ‘star’ and the desire for some measure of public debate about the significance or meaning of the ‘star’.

Video: This interview (Part 1 of 4 )caused George Noory to become physically ill! Listen as Creme discloses that the heralding in of Maitreya is not by a star as he has proposed in the past, but rather this supposed star is a UFO that is five football fields in length.

Was it a UFO, an errant missile, a secret government project?

Photo Above: According to Benjamin Creme, chief editor of Share International magazine, this spectacular design was produced by an extra-terrestrial craft, in particular by one of the four ‘stars’ heralding an extraordinary and imminent world event. It is a sign of hope and wonder that, as Mr. Creme implies, is intended to engage the world’s attention.
