Has anyone seen this? I googled it but I couldn't find anymore info.

Laura Lee News - Algae Spawns Burger Boxes

I'm not sure why the link is named so strangely, of course if it seems too good!

Here's the book

Amazon.com: Raising Atlantis: Thomas Greanias: Books http://www.amazon.com/Raising-Atlantis-Thomas-Greanias/dp/0743491912

Here's a review

Raising Atlantis -- book review

Search the book title you'll find a website. It says you can sign up for satellite imagery etc. Not sure what of.

This is interesting

"Federal officials have acknowledged that at least three plot points in RAISING ATLANTIS are, in fact, true. Namely, that a huge magnetic "anomaly" has been discovered in Antarctica by scientists at Lake Vostok, that American military personnel are helping the National Science Foundation (NSF) to construct a new base nearby, and that "Federal Emergency Plan D" exists."

"Raising Atlantis" is just a Sci-Fi novel.

So the whole link is just scifi or just the book?

The only claims that the book is NOT scifi, comes from "conspiracy theorists". That's a pretty good clue.

The book is scifi, the website is scifi, and the hype about the book being a novelization of a real discovery in Antarctica is just hyper-hype -- an attempt to sell more books by insinuating that it's more than just scifi.

Sorry. :)

Oh well, the link came from a usually good source. I guess everyone makes mistakes but I'll have to ask the whys of putting such BS on the news letter.
