It may come as no surprise that the BBC has expounded the fallacy that UFO
sightings are on the decline. In their year-end list of the "100
things we didn't know this time last year" (at:
"Reports of UFOs have dwindled since the late 1990s. In the UK, sightings
have gone from about 30 a week to almost zero; it's a trend echoed in the
US and Norway."
This is completely opposite to what Canada has recorded during the 90s,
and the claim that this is occurring in the USA can also be shown to be
by looking at the numbers of entries in Peter Davenport's NUFORC files.
Davenport even lists a dozen UK cases for November and December alone.
In a word, "Tsk."
Nobody in particular
