One of the most curious things about Zecharia Sitchin’s theories is his description of the Anunnaki’s search for gold. Their descent to Earth was triggered by a worsening environmental disaster on their own world, Nibiru. They came here with the explicit need to collect one thing: Gold. Why? Not for jewellery, certainly. Their plundering of the earth’s gold supplies was necessary in order to achieve just one end. They needed to pump the stuff into the atmosphere of Nibiru.
This is one of the strangest aspects of a very strange story. Nowadays, we are all familiar with the idea of environmental threats, of impending ecological collapse within a couple of generations. But when Sitchin wrote his ‘12th Planet Theory’ back in 1976 there was no such concern, beyond worries of oil prices and OPEC’s control of the world’s economy.
This coming week will see a discussion of our modern problems of global warming, as scientists report on what the governments of the world need to do to avoid the very real threat of global super-heating. In an implicit acceptance of the threat of global warming, the U.S. have been pressurizing scientists to recommend hi-tech solutions. These include space mirrors to deflect 1% of the light of the Sun away from Earth. Reflecting light away from our planet by just a small amount would, apparently, compensate for the greenhouse gas effects going on due to industrial and domestic output of carbon gases.
One of the ways to reflect light into space would be to introduce reflective material into the highest part of the earth’s atmosphere. Such a solution is being considered seriously. Suggestions include the release of millions of reflective balloons into the upper atmosphere. Another is changing the emission gases of aeroplanes to produce white and longer-lasting contrails. A third is releasing sulphate droplets into the upper atmosphere, which would mimic the action of cooling volcanic eruptions. Like all untested medicine, the side-effects of sulphate droplet release remain unknown.
This all suddenly sounds rather familiar. Releasing material in bulk into the atmosphere of our planet? As Lee Covino has pointed out to me, this is pure Sitchin! It’s what the Anunnaki did with our gold. They spent hundreds of thousands of years purportedly mining the stuff, and shipping it back to Nibiru when that planet’s elongated orbit brought it round to the planetary zone of our star every 3600 years. Once they had enough of the stuff, the Anunnaki left. It now seems likely that the purpose for the gold was not to keep the homeworld's planetary heat in, but to keep the light out!
Now it is our turn to panic about the environment; and with good reason.
In my book ‘The Dark Star: The Planet X Evidence’, I discuss at length mechanisms whereby the Sun and the Dark Star’s relationship has changed over time. I believe that small changes in the orbit of our unstable binary companion have profound effects upon the orbits of the other planets around the Sun. I believe that our environment on Earth is linked to the Dark Star’s orbit in a very clearly defined way.
Four million years ago, an Ice Epoch began on Earth. For forty million years before that date we had no ice-caps on Earth. Science still cannot adequately explain why there are long periods of time when the Earth has no ice at all, whilst other periods of time, lasting millions of years, there are substantial and evolving ice-caps.
I’m not talking about the ebb and flow of ice ages within the current Ice Epoch here, which may be attributed to the Milankovitch Cycles. I’m talking about greater stretches of geological time, including those extreme points in time when dinosaurs lived at the ice-free poles, or when the Earth was covered in so much ice it has been compared to a planet-sized Snowball.
I have suggested that these massive shifts in climate were facilitated by shifts in the orbit of the brown dwarf companion, which I dub the Dark Star. The Anunnaki live on a world orbiting this Dark Star. The atmosphere of their own homeworld has been subject to global warming over the last 4 million years, during the time when our world has been colder. That’s why they introduced gold into their atmosphere: to reflect some of the light of their unusually bright and excitable Dark Sun. That’s why they took the very hazardous step of coming here, a planet which was toxic to them.
Now they have left, perhaps because their world is now safe. Whilst ours is presented with the Abyss.
This is simply not a coincidence!
Perhaps, and I mean this light-heartedly, we need to go to Nibiru and take back our gold to prevent our own planet from overheating. Perhaps this might be one of the remarkable technological solutions suggested by the U.S. Government, which seems to know quite a bit about pumping reflective substances into the high atmosphere all of a sudden. Perhaps they also know quite a lot about the Dark Star, Nibiru and the Anunnaki…

I've had some interesting feedback from other researchers, and various people who enjoy Zecharia Sitchin's work. My friend and colleague Lloyd Pye writes to point out that he presented very similar ideas in his 1997 book:
"...Scientists have been touting the "particulate gold shot into the upper atmosphere" theory for quite a while now, at least before 1997 when I published "Everything You Know Is Wrong" (1). I mention this as the best apparent solution at that time (p232). Since then, as you point out, the "reflective mirror" and "reflective balloon" theories have appeared, but that is probably to protect the gold more than anything else. I'm not sure which is the best solution, only that gold has been touted for at least a decade."
Also, Eric Harrington points out that he has yet to come across an ancient reference to the use of gold in Nibiru's atmosphere in Sitchin's work (2). He suspects that the idea in one of Zecharia's original ideas, rather than something based upon a textual quotation., which puts things into perspective. Even so, Mr Sitchin was ahead of his time on this front!
Finally, Die Schandausstellungen suggests, (a little tongue-in-cheek) there might be some money in it for me, by suggesting alternative sources for Global Warming. It seems that various American Energy Producers are keen to provide substantial sums of money to any scientific authority prepared to extol their political position on this issue. Since I agree with the IPCC about Humanity's massive contribution to the Global Warming effect, and given that I am not any kind of authority on anything at all (except perhaps the Dark Star!), I suspect I shall remain poor. I agree wholeheartedly with the following comment:
"Lord Rees of Ludlow, the president of the Royal Society, Britain's most prestigious scientific institute, said: "The IPCC is the world's leading authority on climate change and its latest report will provide a comprehensive picture of the latest scientific understanding on the issue. It is expected to stress, more convincingly than ever before, that our planet is already warming due to human actions, and that 'business as usual' would lead to unacceptable risks, underscoring the urgent need for concerted international action to reduce the worst impacts of climate change. However, yet again, there will be a vocal minority with their own agendas who will try to suggest otherwise."" (3)
