||In 2009 a UK production company was hired by National Geographic TV
to produce yet another biased crop circle "documentary." Most serious
crop circle researchers refused to take part. Read here why, and see
Bert Janssen's photos -- which clearly document National Geographic
TV deliberately misrepresenting the crop circle phenomenon.
||"The Physics of Crop Formations," written by John Burke
(MUFON Journal, October 1998, pp. 3-7), presents a detailed
explanation of the rationale behind W. C. Levengood's hypothesis
that crop circles may be the result of highly energetic, thermodynamically-unstable
atmospheric plasma energy systems impacting the earth's surface.
||John Burke (the "B" in BLT) and Kaj Halberg present scientific
evidence that the engineers who built many of the massive
monuments of the ancient world may have known a secret.
The henges, pyramids, mounds & dolmen were overwhelmingly
sited where local geology magnified naturally-occurring EM
fluctuations - energies which were enhanced
by the structures
built there. Addtionally, they show that seeds placed at these
sites subsequently demonstrate increased growth-rate and
yield, a discovery that may explain why these mysterious stone
structures appeared all over the world. (Book Details)
|| "Origin of Crop Circles Baffles Scientists," written by well-
known investigative reporter Leslie Kean, was published on
September 16, 2002 in Rhode Island's The Providence Journal ,
and was the first comprehensive article published in the U.S.
covering the BLT Research Team's work.
the fall of 2002 the Discovery Channel aired "Crop Circles:
Mystery in the Fields," a show in which M.I.T. undergraduates
are presented as having successfully replicated multiple plant & soil anomalies known to occur in genuine crop circles.
Read what really happened….
"Beyond the Mystery," a supposedly unbiased report
on the crop circle phenomenon presented on National Geographic
TV in 2005, is discussed by Nancy Talbott, who was interviewed
for the show. Ms. Talbott questions National Geographic TV's
motives and ethics in presenting the material included--and
excluded--from this show.
Other articles written by Nancy Talbott
or John Burke for farm journals and the "anomalous phenomena"
audience have been published in specialty publications. Newspapers
in the U.S., Canada and Europe have presented some of the laboratory
results obtained by the BLT Research Team, but most frequently in
inadequate detail. A major article did appear in The
London Times Sunday Magazine several years
ago, which featured the results presented in 2004 in BLT's x-ray
diffraction study of clay minerals in crop circle soils.
