Shellenberger, Michael –
Reporting on claims of secretive U.S. government UFO retrieval program
While being clear that he was skeptical of claims from Grusch and his sources, Shellenberger has appeared in multiple interviews, including with Brian Entin of NewsNation claiming that he has spoken to “some of the same sources that have been feeding Mr. Grusch information” and that they are saying that the U.S. government possesses “at least 12 to 15 nonhuman aircraft” with “at least four morphologies, different structures” and that “six were in good shape; six were not in good shape”.

“Michael D. Shellenberger (born June 16, 1971) is an American author and former public relations professional whose writing has focused on the intersection of politics, the environment, climate change and nuclear power, as well as more recently on how he believes progressivism is linked to homelessness, drug addiction and mental illness. He is a co-founder of the Breakthrough Institute and the California Peace Coalition. He is also the founder of Environmental Progress.
A self-described ecomodernist, Shellenberger believes that economic growth can continue without negative environmental impacts through technological research and development, usually through a combination of nuclear power and urbanization. A controversial figure, Shellenberger disagrees with most environmentalists over the impacts of environmental threats and policies for addressing them. Shellenberger accepts that global warming is occurring, but argues that “it’s not the end of the world.” Shellenberger’s positions and writings on climate change and environmentalism have received criticism from environmental scientists and academics, who have called his arguments “bad science” and “inaccurate”. Response to his positions and writings from writers and journalists in the popular press has been mixed. In a similar manner, many academics criticized Shellenberger’s positions and writings on homelessness, while receiving mixed reception from writers and journalists in the popular press.
Shellenberger was a Democratic candidate for governor in the 2018 California gubernatorial election, placing ninth in a field of twenty-seven candidates with 0.5% of the vote. In 2021, he supported recalling Governor Gavin Newsom in the 2021 California gubernatorial recall election. Shellenberger ran as a “No Party Preference” candidate in the 2022 gubernatorial election, placing third in a field of twenty-six with 4.1% of the vote.“
- US Has 12 Or More Alien Spacecraft, Say Military And Intelligence Contractors: Military and intelligence agencies are withholding evidence from Congress, sources say. Michael Shellenberger – June 7, 2023
- More Sources Step Up To Buttress Whistleblower Claims That America Is Hiding Alien Spacecraft: Some of the same sources cited by a whistleblower tell journalist Michael Shellenberger that the Biden administration is in possession of between 12 and 15 nonhuman, extraterrestrial vehicles. Scott Norvell – Thursday, June 8, 2023
“The language seems in sync with past public claims by some persons purporting to have direct or indirect knowledge of UFO “crash retrieval” programs, who have asserted that such programs had made little progress over decades, because stringent secrecy has severely limited the scientific and engineering resources available to unravel the workings of devices or materials of purportedly non-human origin. Such claims were made, for example, by an unnamed military contractor quoted by Michael Shellenberger in a June 7, 2023 article titled, “U.S. Has 12 or More Alien Spacecraft, Say Military and Intelligence Contractors.””

“Now, Michael Shellenberger issued his own statement saying that he knew of, at least, a dozen downed alien craft and that every five years we get one or two recovered for one reason and another. An unnamed source supposedly shared this information with AARO but AARO’s response suggests they don’t have access to that information. …
However, there is another player. Michael Shellenberger is on stage now. He claims that he knew there were twelve alien craft in the possession of the US government. He dodged the questions about the recovery of an alien flight crew. He mentioned that he had talked to multiple sources. He said they were high-ranking military officials, intelligence officers and civilian contractors who verified what Grusch had said. But here, again, he provided no names, no documents but only said that these unidentified people were reliable. …
Shellenberger did mention a crash around the testing site for the atomic weapons. This might be a reference to Roswell, though it is more likely a reference to the 1945 San Antonio, New Mexico, crash referred to by Jacques Vallee. If it is the Trinity tale, that undercuts the reliability of what Shellenberger has to say because the Trinity story is a hoax.”
