Metal wheel from sky found in family’s roof. Linda Taylor-Whitt‘s daughter first saw the wheel breaking through the bathroom ceiling of their Lynwood Illinois home after they had returned from eating out on the evening of Saturday Oct 5, 2019. Police called local fire chief who came out to investigate. He said it was something “he equates more with a scene from a TV show than real life.” The home owner eventually received a call from a local helicopter flight school who saw the story in a newspaper, took responsibility and explained that “the wheel was from a piece of machinery used to move helicopters between airport hangers.” The ground handling wheel somehow stayed attached to the vehicle before falling off above the home. Another wheel from the same incident reportedly landed harmlessly in a neighboring yard. #oddnews #strangenews #helicoptermover #wheelintheskyinmyceling #wheelintheskykeepsonturning #unlikelybuttrue #simulationtheory Continue reading Metal wheel from sky found in family’…

Ways to Save Earth: Pulling CO2 From the Air to Make Gasoline

I hear a lot of dismay out there about the environment, but I believe there is still hope for the planet Earth, that we might even reverse the ongoing Holocene extinction if we humans stop squabbling and really get our act together. As one great example, it is said to be possible to undo the greenhouse effect we have created by extracting CO2 from the air in order to reverse climate change. The technology already exists, in fact, it just needs to be scaled up. From its pilot plant in Squamish, British Columbia, Carbon Engineering has successfully developed and demonstrated … Continue reading Ways to Save Earth: Pulling CO2 From the Air to Make Gasoline

Carl Segan explains how the ancient Greeks knew the earth was round and also it’s appropriate size thousands of years ago. – Truestrange.com Continue reading How Ancient Greeks Knew the Earth’s Size
