Is Weather Modification/|\Aerosol *GeoEngineering the Sky* Real?

Just a "Heads Up" and just wondering where the truth lies on this controversial subject. Does it help to *Make Connections to See the total BIG PICTURE*. . . globally speaking?

Just a "Heads Up" and just wondering where the truth lies on this controversial subject. If there is any truth to it then I'm just wondering if people should care or if we should just consider this to be a "non-issue" that is not relevant. Does it warrant any concern? Does it play a part in ***Making Connections to See the BIG PICTURE***? Seriously. . . I'm just wondering. I'm not sure what to believe sometimes because there are so many lies within the 'SYSTEM'. The entire 'system' is created upon a foundation of never ending ~~~Lies, Betrayals, and Hypocrisy~~~.


Weather Modification/*GeoEngineering the Sky* exposed? Proof of man-made global warming/Climate Change or just another crappy 'conspiracy theory'? You decide. That's what FREE & INDEPENDENT critical thinking is for...

Join our campaign to halt geoengineering — May 4th, 2010 - "It's time to say no to scientists and politicians considering geoengineering as a way of tackling climate change, says Jim Thomas."  link to www.theecologist.org

—>>>Know Your Rights<<<—

(from above article) "That industrial societies have run Mother Earth ragged is no secret round these parts.

Whether climate change, depleted fresh water, build-up of toxins, collapse of ecosystems or accelerating species extinction, this way of living on the Earth has become unsustainable and common sense says we must act fast to build a fairer civilization that treads more lightly on the planet. Unfortunately common sense isn't the only option on the table."

"The campaign insists that a halt be placed on geoengineering experiments and that the 'rights' of Planet Earth be respected. 'Not just human beings have rights, but the planet has rights,' asserts Evo Morales, Bolivian president and host of the recently concluded Cochabamba Climate Change Conference in Bolivia. The first right, he says, is 'the right for no ecosystem to be eliminated'. The second, 'for Mother Earth to live without contamination'. The final statement by the 35,000 people attending Cochabamba called out geoengineering as a false solution to the climate problem."


SUPPOSEDLY. . . "the international program involves spraying aluminum, barium, strontium and other toxic chemicals from airplanes at high altitudes that then fall to the ground, ending up in our bodies, our water, our soil and the air we breathe."

Excerpt from the article above—> "I hope that we never get to the point where people feel the need to spray aerosols in the sky to offset rampant global warming," Caldeira said. "This is one study where I am not eager to have our predictions proven right by a global stratospheric aerosol layer in the real world." <— perhaps too late... it seems to already be happening? ? ?

Excerpt: 'Hack The Planet' — by Eli Kintisch - May 29, 2010
"David Battisti had arrived in Cambridge, Massachusetts, expecting a rout, a farce, a bloodbath. So had many of the other scientists who had joined him that frigid morning from around the country. It was an invitation - only workshop on climate science in November of 2007 for which they convened at the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, an airy temple to diligence and scholarship one block from Harvard University. Battisti shuffled out of the Massachusetts morning air and into the Academy's expansive premises.

The workshop's unholy topic was geoengineering: the concept of manually tinkering with Earth's thermostat to reverse global warming. Organizers had arranged the event to find out whether respected climate scientists such as Battisti might support research into the controversial idea. In a button - down shirt opened two buttons down, Battisti poured his coffee and watched the scientists fiddle with their muffins. One couldn't take planethacking seriously, he figured, because there's no way we'll ever know enough about the atmosphere to claim we can control it. Just because the radical notion had made it from the outer fringes of Earth science all the way to Cambridge didn't mean the group was going to legitimize it, he thought.

Since the 1960s, a handful of scientists had dreamed up various schemes to intentionally alter the atmosphere on a global scale: flying enormous sunshades above Earth, creating billions of thicker clouds at sea, or spewing light - blocking sulfate pollution at high altitude to mimic the cooling effects of volcanic eruptions. Ecologists imagined brightening the planet's dark surfaces to reflect more sunlight, by spreading white plastic across certain deserts. Marine biologists explored growing algae blooms to suck billions of tons of carbon dioxide from the sky.

Each concept took a smidgen or two of sense and added scientific optimism and a dollop of whimsy. Mostly back - of - the - envelope affairs, the papers that described them included just enough observations or calculations to suggest the ideas might work. The scientists who wrote them knew the concepts were raw and with few exceptions understood them to be options reserved for worst - case scenarios. To the broader community of climate scientists, proposing even to study deliberately altering the atmosphere was a heretical idea.

As Battisti poured himself coffee, he saw one of the heretics standing beside the buffet table. "That guy is scary," Battisti whispered to a colleague. It was Lowell Wood, a nuclear physicist with a broad, reddish beard and a dark jacket. His wide torso was bisected by a tie featuring the periodic table of elements. From his perch at a California nuclear weapons lab, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Wood had won notoriety, if not ridicule, for proposing in 1997 to control the atmosphere's thermostat by scattering chemicals in the atmosphere. He had done so in collaboration with his aging mentor Edward Teller, the father of the hydrogen bomb. Teller, whose conservative views had often put him at odds with the left - leaning scientific establishment, had advocated in the same year that geoengineering was a better way to tackle the climate crisis than the Kyoto accords."

Goodbye Blue Sky— By Rand Clifford - March 04, 2013  http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article34171.htm




"The greatest triumphs of propaganda have been accomplished, not by doing something, but by refraining from doing. Great is the truth, but still greater, from a practical point of view, is silence about truth." — Aldous Huxley, Brave New World.

Do you think? You can tell. 21.Jan.2014 18:29

>+<> >+<<>>

So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell,
Blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

And did they get you to trade
Your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange
A walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl,
Year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found?
The same old fears.
Wish you were here.
