Environmental degradation and waning natural resources including energy resources threaten U.S. security. And the loss of renewable natural resources, including forests, fresh water, fish and fertile soils, can drive political instability and conflict in the developing world, and around the globe.

March 23, 2012 – ARKANSAS -Remember
New Year’s Eve 2010 when thousands of birds mysteriously dropped from
the sky over Beebe, Arkansas? Well, the mystery has been solved. Last
May, a crew from the National Geographic Channel dropped by the
NewsChannel5 Weather Office. They wanted to see what important
information we had found regarding the bird deaths over Beebe. Indeed,
my research indicated a unique radar signature several thousand feet
above the birds just as the mass deaths were occurring. With the help of
Massachusetts Institute of Technology, a unique weather phenomenon was
blamed for startling the birds and causing the mayhem that resulted in
the demise of thousands of birds that night. On Thursday, an all-new
National Geographic Special will debut explaining the Beebe event as
well as several other mass animal deaths that occurred last winter. The show, “Omens of the Apocalypse,”airs on the National Geographic Channel at 10 p.m.
