It was inevitable. Those of you who have been wondering about so-called “chemtrails” need to read the December 11, 2012 article in Britain’s Daily Mail. The headline screams “Could we re-freeze the Arctic? Scientists suggest radical solution to global warming.”
This miraculous feat of geo-engineering comes to us courtesy of Harvard Professor of Applied Physics David Keith, who has authored papers proposing the massive spraying of reflective particles over the Arctic Circle in the journals Nature Climate Change and Environmental Research Letters.
They call it “spraying,” the street name is “chemtrails.” They have been doing it for years. It is the use of chemicals sprayed from planes to alter the environment, create military antennas in the sky, to build fake clouds and a toxic reflective sunscreen for the planet. You have probably seen it happen with a long-lasting white trail streaking high in the sky behind one or more planes, sometimes making a criss-cross checkerboard design. And when you call your local news station to ask what’s going on, usually they send out the jolly local weatherman to tell you not to believe your lying eyes.
There’s nothing new about the idea of weather modification. It’s been in vogue among certain advocates of “better living through chemistry” and high-ranking militarists since the mid-50s.
In an anthology published by CICJ Books, Star Wars, Weather Mods, and Full Spectrum Dominance, I have documented the long history of weather modification and the corporate and military implications behind it.
Throughout the Cold War, both the U.S. and the former Soviet Union actively investigated military applications of weather modification. In 1958, Captain Howard T. Orville, then serving as the White House’s Chief Advisor on weather modification, publicly announced that the Defense Department was studying “ways to manipulate the charges of the earth and sky and so affect the weather through electronic beams to ionize and de-ionize the atmosphere.”
In the 1990s, Edward Teller, the father of the hydrogen bomb, emerged as a major proponent of weather modification. The April 24, 2001 New York Times reported that Teller “had promoted the idea of manipulating the Earth’s atmosphere to counteract global warming.” Scientist Ken Calderia from the Lawrence Livermore Weapons Laboratory where Teller served as Director Emeritus prior to his death, admitted to the Free Press that they were modeling computer simulations on the use of aluminum oxide to counter global warming.
Calderia told me “We originally did this study to show that this program [massive spraying for weather modification] shouldn’t be done. Calderia felt such large scale weather modification was doomed because of the possibility of negative health effects. The chemicals used for the spraying the atmosphere come to earth as toxic particles that could cause respiratory and other health problems when ingested.
What’s new here is that this is being reported in British tabloids and repeated in the Columbus Dispatch’s EarthWeek section. What did not appear in the Dispatch’s briefer version was the last quote paragraph in the Daily Mail article. “Such drastic geoengineering could have disastrous unintended effects but could be a viable response to a ‘climate emergency’ such as the sudden collapse of ice sheets or a killing drought,” Professor Keith suggested.
The Mail also mentioned Professor Keith’s belief that such “open-air and large-scale geoengineering” violates the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity. Also a 1977 United Nations treaty, the Convention on the Prohibition of Military or Any Other Hostile Use of the Environmental Modification Techniques, specifically prohibited “the use of techniques that would have widespread, long-lasting or severe effects through deliberate manipulation of natural processes and cause such phenomena as earthquakes, tidal waves, in climate and weather patterns.”
Just like you can’t separate Teller’s chemical geo-engineering from his nuclear bomb – nor can you separate weather modification from the United States military.
In 2001, U.S. Representative Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) introduced the Space Preservation Act of 2001. The bill not only sought a “permanent ban on basing of weapons in space,” but also specifically banned “chemtrails.”
With these recent revelations in the Daily Mail, readers should recall that Dr. Bernard Eastlund who developed HAARP, the High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program, admitted to Wired magazine that the existing version controlled by the U.S. military in Alaska has weather modification capabilities.
Climate change is real and we need with it through sustainability, not by spewing a toxic band-aid in the sky. All people should demand environmental impact testing before any chemtrail spraying is done and we should demand that the U.S. government open its files on weather modification whether it be for geo-engineering or military purposes.
Remember that back in the 70s, former U.S. National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski predicted that “Technology will make available, to the leaders of major nations, techniques for conducting secret warfare of which only a bare minimum of the security forces need to be appraised. . . techniques of weather modification could be employed to produce prolonged periods of drought or storm.” What the world needs now, is full transparency.
