Ian R Crane – Fracktured Future – It Doesn’t Have To Be This Way!
Friday 5th July 2013
Former oilfield executive Ian R Crane has engaged industry sources and independent researchers to lay the foundations for his investigations into fracking – mining of shale and coal seam gas. In “Fractured Future – It doesn’t have to be this way”, a nationwide speaking tour, Ian asks whether this ‘miracle’ of nature really will be the solution to our nation’s problems? Is it going to be the best thing for us since North Sea gas, or are there hidden dangers which could impact upon communities in ways which need open discussion?

Lloyd Pye: Lloyd Pye will be discussing the world-famous Starchild Skull, a real bone skull that he claims is from an alien being. He supports his radical claim with extensive evidence that illustrates 25 major physical differences between the Starchild and a normal human skull. He shows that several parts of the Starchild are not seen in any other skulls or bones on planet Earth! Most importantly, he delves into recent research on the Starchild’s DNA, which clearly shows that as soon as its entire genome is recovered and sequenced, its genetics will confirm it is vastly more distant from humans than are chimps or gorillas. The Starchild Skull represents history about to be made as big and as important as history can be made, so don’t miss this personal introduction to a relic that will establish once and for all that we humans are not alone in the universe….and never have been!
