But they teach it at university!
If you had asked me a year ago about geoengineering, I would not have known what it was. If you had asked me about chemtrails, I could've told you what they were but I would not have been convinced that they were really a thing. They seemed like one of those conspiracy theory subjects that were a vague cause for worry but not yet a proven problem.
Geoengineering sounds scientific. It sounds positive, using engineering to fix problems on earth. If you look at a university webpage, geoengineering is touted as having a syllabus to teach students how to solve problems like global warming.
Chemtrails, or for the more erudite, stratospheric aerosols of heavy metals are supposed to help deflect the sun's radiation to reduce the effects of global warming. They have been in use for !
I saw a documentary about them a few months ago. I wish I could find it again now because it really explained the whole picture from proof for chemtrails, environmental studies of massively elevated levels of heavy metals in soil and plants to weather warfare to the financial benefits of climate manipulation.
Some of points made in the video that really struck me:
- They showed the testing for heavy metals in soil and plants and debunked any arguments that might try to explain it as a natural phenomenon.
- Native wild plant species dying off. As a gardener this is unheard of to me. Native plants can tolerate periods of drought under normal conditions.
- Fortunes are being made as a result of weather manipulation. If you knew that a crop would fail because of drought, you could make the appropriate bets on the futures market.
- Weather warfare is a way to achieve foreign policy goals without any evidence of overt aggression.
- Monsanto is cashing in on chemtrails by selling seeds that are resistant to drought and heavy metals. Regular strains of seeds just don't stand a chance any more.
Today I tried to find articles that would provide references for the points above but it was really difficult. Most of the information about geoengineering that I could find related to one guy, Dane Wigington, and his website GeoEngineering Watch. Wigington is a passionate critic of geoengineering and I highly recommend him. I linked to a video of one of his presentations.
Near the end of the video (a presentation from 2015), Wigington highlights the huge increase in forest fires occurring all over the world and shows a map of temperature changes. While most of world, including western and northern Canada, is getting hotter and having lots of forest fires (Fort McMurray, hello!), there is a huge area of cooling over eastern North America. He explains that the people behind weather manipulation are trying to keep the most populous area of the United States ignorant of the warming that is occurring everywhere else. A lightbulb went off for me because I really couldn't understand how chilly northern Alberta could have experienced such high temperatures while we were having such a long, cool spring in Ontario.
Geoengineering for Financial Gain: A History of Weather Derivatives: This article doesn't precisely cover all of the stock market information that was covered in the video I saw last year. However it lays out how Enron got into the weather derivatives market, the connection with the Bush's and with the military-industrial complex (Carlyle Group anyone?). And many of the Enron executives involved in this are friends and supporters of the Clintons.
I am including this article about whistleblowers more as a bookmark than anything else. Former Prominent CIA Officer Shares Details Of The Government’s All Out War Against Whistleblowers With GeoengineeringWatch.org "Over the last fifty years US government intelligence agencies have perfected a complex, sequential system to systematically silence or destroy any employee, including his or her family, who attempts to reveal illegal or unconstitutional activities conducted as part of secret government operations."
Not only does this system apply to government employees and military personnel but the agencies have figured out how to apply it to contractors and their employees as well. "Using attractive awards of multi-million dollar contracts, the US government military industrial complex convinces private corporations that their employees must be cleared and sign secrecy agreements. This includes employees at all levels, from secretaries to CEOs. Once they have signed the secrecy agreement, they are bound to keep all information, including potentially illegal information, quiet, being threatened with the same penalties."
I expect and hope that I am preaching to the choir here. In contrast, I tried talking to my co-workers at the hospital about chemtrails and their effects on us and one of my colleagues outright ridiculed me as a conspiracy nut. There is good scientific proof for what is going on with stratospheric aerosols, weather manipulation and manipulation of the financial markets. The only reason we are not hearing more about it is that government agencies have a stranglehold on whistleblowers.
We need to get the message out.
