About Good Planets
Cambridge meteorologist and South African born environmentalist, Elizabeth Klarer became internationally known not only for her environmental predictions dating as far back as the early fifties and the scientific knowledge that she often shared from international podiums but also for her non-fiction book ‘Beyond the Light Barrier’ which was published in 1979 and still rakes in world-wide sales.
In 1975, twenty two of the world’s top scientists were handpicked by leading German scientist, Prof Hermann Oberth (also known to the modern world as the founding father of rocketry and astronautics) who together with Elizabeth, were flown to Wiesbaden in Germany where she addressed them on her book ‘Beyond the Light Barrier’ and her then latest paper ‘The Nature of Gravity’. Soon after, she was invited to address the House of Lords in London as well as the UN. She was the first South African to be afforded this honour.
Her story was also a bona fide mystery story, sprinkled with verifiable facts, close associations with top brass military personnel, vanishings, claimed government protection programs and astounding revelations. What makes this unforgettable woman even more fascinating was that she claimed her information was given to her by her lover from an advanced human race, the scientist Akon, from the planet Meton, in the Alpha Centauri constellation and that between the two of them, our planet was a matter of universal security.
She stood behind her story with its strong environmental message until she died in February 1994, at the age of 83. She believed that her work was here, to educate, witness and share the implementable solutions she had experienced firsthand and to speak out for the defence of nature. Curbing global warming; creating clean energy for the future; preserving the world’s oceans, wildlife and wild places; recycling; preventing pollution; ensuring safe and sufficient water and fostering sustainable communities, was part of her daily jargon since her early teen years in the 1920’s.
