"Whoa," yells Brownie Wilson, as the steel measuring tape I am feeding down the throat of an irrigation well on the Kansas prairie gets away from me and unspools rapidly into the depths below.
The well, wide enough to fall into, taps into the Ogallala aquifer, the immense underground freshwater basin that makes modern life possible in the dry states of Middle America. We have come to assess the aquifer's health. The weighted tip hits the water at 195 feet, a foot lower than a year ago. Dropping at this pace, it is nearing the end of its life. "Already this well does not have enough water left to irrigate for an entire summer," Wilson says.

The cause of this danger is widely believed to be melting ice caps in Greenland and the Antarctic caused by man-made global warming. But the government knows the truth and the reason behind the deception —a newly discovered 9th planet is wreaking havoc with the earth’s rotational, electrical and gravitational pull. John Moore, former intelligence analyst turned criminal investigator and private detective, will present nearly 20 years of research, interviews and critical observation...
