We are told by “official” sources that the ozone layer is recovering, that we have nothing to worry about. This narrative is being pushed by power structure controlled agencies in order to pacify the public until the last possible moment. How close is that moment? If we remain on the current course, anthropogenic activities (with climate engineering at the top of the list) may completely destroy the ozone layer within the next decade or less. Without the ozone layer, all terrestrial life on Earth (and most aquatic life) will perish. The “official” sources who tell us climate engineering isn’t happening, who tell us that we are only seeing "condensation trail" grid patterns in our skies, are the same agencies telling us the ozone layer is getting better. Yet, the increasing intensity of UV radiation can be felt on the skin, on surfaces, is scorching foliage and tree trunks, and is sunburning whales and fish. The increasingly intense UV radiation from the disintegrating ozone layer can and is being metered by experts in the field. In the video below, a former NASA contract engineer discusses the immense and immediate UV radiation dangers we face from the disintegrating ozone layer which he is personally metering with state of the art equipment supplied through GeoengineeringWatch.org
Though the official ozone layer “recovery” lie is still being propagated, some sources are acknowledging reality as the truth becomes ever more difficult to hide.
Much more geoengineering / ozone destruction supporting data is listed below. We must remember and consider that mainstream media sources are not yet willing to admit that illegal climate engineering programs are real, ongoing, and the single largest component of the ozone collapse scenario we collectively face.
Certain chemicals chewed a hole in Earth's ozone layer. But regulating those substances doesn't seem to have made much difference. ….it's not showing any signs of recovering….
BBC Science & Environment
Ozone layer recovery could be delayed by 30 years
Again, this article by the BBC (and many others) make no mention whatsoever of the single greatest ozone destroying factor of all, covert climate engineering / weather warfare global assault.
An injection of sulfur large enough to compensate for surface warming caused by the doubling of atmospheric CO2 would strongly increase the extent of Arctic ozone depletion during the present century for cold winters and would cause a considerable delay, between 30 and 70 years.
Stratospheric Injections To Counter Global Warming Could Damage Ozone Layer
The new study concluded that, over the next few decades, hypothetical artificial injections of sulfates likely would destroy between about one fourth to three fourths of the ozone layer above the Arctic.
Yet more acknowledgement of Geoengineering's effect on the ozone layer is below:
Increasing UV radiation from ozone layer depletion:
Stratospheric aerosol injection (climate engineering side effects)
Main article: Stratospheric sulfur aerosols § Effects
Climate engineering and solar radiation management in general are controversial, and pose various problems and risks. However, certain problems are specific to, or more pronounced with this particular technique.
Ozone depletion: is a potential side effect of sulfur aerosols; and these concerns have been supported by modelling. However, this may only occur if high enough quantities of aerosols drift to, or are deposited in, Polar stratospheric clouds before the levels of CFCs and other ozone destroying gases fall naturally to safe levels because stratospheric aerosols, together with the ozone destroying gases, are responsible for ozone depletion.
Whitening of the sky: Stratospheric aerosols have the potential to whiten the sky and cause more colorful sunsets, dependent on the amount being sprayed. According to a study on cleaner air, resulting solar brightening has been responsible for an increase in corn production over the past 30 years.
Regional warming: Based on the results of the 2014-2015 Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project, a model with a standard stratospheric aerosol injection scenario, temperatures in the tropics would cool, and higher latitudes warm, ice sheet, and Arctic sea ice decline would still continue, albeit at a reduced rate. Extreme temperature anomalies would also still increase, but to a lesser degree. In regards to these model results, the author of the study Alan Robock noted:
If geoengineering were halted all at once, there would be rapid temperature and precipitation increases at 5–10 times the rates from gradual global warming.
Stratospheric temperature change: Aerosols can also absorb some radiation from the Sun, the Earth and the surrounding atmosphere. This changes the surrounding air temperature and could potentially impact on the stratospheric circulation, which in turn may impact the surface circulation.
Regional hydrologic responses: Based on the results of the Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project, there would be a reduction in the global average precipitation around the world, particularly in summer monsoon regions.
If UV radiation had gone “off the charts”, what might it do to aquatic life forms? Let's start with global plankton populations, the foundation for life on earth. Even NASA says high UV radiation would be extremely harmful for these microscopic organisms.
So how are plankton populations doing?
Krill population decline (krill feed on phytoplankton):
And another review article:
How plankton decline impacts the ocean food chain:
What about our larger ocean life forms, is the increasingly intense UV radiation affecting them?
Excessive UV damage to marine life:
Whales getting sunburnt:
UV radiation and tree damage:
Are we seeing problems with trees?
What would excessive ozone depletion and increase UV radiation do to us?
Is there northern hemisphere ozone depletion that we are not being told about by mainstream media?
Previous Geoengineering Watch reports on ozone layer destruction and climate engineering are below:
Global power structures are increasingly desperate to keep populations from panicking as the biosphere collapse accelerates. The recent “ozone layer is recovering” official agency false narrative is a blatant example of the Orwellian world lies and deception we now find ourselves in. We must think for ourselves, we must do objective investigation, we must examine the frontline facts for ourselves, and we must use credible and verifiable data to form our conclusions that we share with others.

The US government and the western power structure as a whole is completely out of control. Though there is no denying the corruption and criminality that is rampant in other countries like China and Russia, the most dangerous desperate behavior being displayed by a global power center is that of the US / NATO / Trump administration, and the military industrial complex they all stand for. The US / NATO military industrial complex wants total global hegemonic power and will stop at nothing in the attempt to achieve it. The latest desired excuse to ramp up US / NATO military aggression in the Middle East has now been conveniently provided, but what really happened? And why? Do Americans even remember the earlier false flag chemical weapons attack that was staged in Syria, just as the UN weapons inspectors arrived in Syria? Does any rational person believe the Syrians would invite the UN inspectors to their country (after giving up all their chemical weapons willingly) and then launch a chemical weapons attack (with chemical weapons they did not even have) just in time for the UN inspectors to witness it? Really? The 7 minute video below is very important and informative report of the latest chemical weapons attack false flag launched by western powers that are desperate to trigger global conflict.
What does Google show when you search "Trump / Syria chemical weapons attack"? The Google search results show only the criminally corrupt mainstream media official military industrial complex narrative. That is what the criminal corporate media are paid to do. Some of the "official narrative" headlines from Google are below.
The 2 minute video below is yet another glaring example of power structure controlled corporate media pumping out the scripted false narrative of the military industrial complex. This CNN carefully crafted propaganda report is shockingly transparent in regard to its attempt to create public support for continued US military intervention / aggression.
The US mainstream media is a criminal collaborator and contributor to the totally tyrannical and completely out of control military industrial complex. Their lies also include deceptions of total omission. What else is happening in Syria (and all over the world) that mainstream media has never said a word about? An incomprehensibly massive and unimaginably destructive global climate engineering/weather warfare assault that must also be considered biological warfare due to the highly toxic fallout from these programs.
Chemical weapons false flag attacks are not the only toxic activity being carried out in Syria by those in power. The photo below of the skies over Hama, Syria, was taken on the same day as the false flag chemical attack, April 4th, 2017.

Available evidence clearly indicates that the US / NATO military industrial complex pushing for WWlll. Due to accelerating biosphere implosion and waning global resources, it seems the power structure feels that creating global conflict and chaos is their last available option. In the meantime, every single human being on the planet (and the entire web of life) is being subjected to the highly toxic fallout from ongoing illegal global climate engineering / intervention programs (which must also be considered a form of biological / chemical warfare). All of us are facing what must be considered a fight for life. Whether or not we accept this or believe it is irrelevant, the front-line facts speak for themselves. All of us are desperately needed in the fight for the greater good. Investigate, participate, make your voice heard.

Weather Warfare Biggest Threat to Life on Earth – Dane Wigington
Geoengineering researcher Dane Wigington says the number one threat facing humanity is extreme weather modification (being sold as a mitigation measure) to cool the planet. It’s being done by geoengineering (commonly known as chemtrails) and it must be stopped now because it’s having the opposite effect. Wigington says all climate engineering is really just “weather warfare” and explains, “How long can humans survive without habitat? If we have an issue that is mathematically the greatest single assault launched by the human race against earth’s natural life support system, why wouldn’t we deal with that first and foremost above anything else?”

One scientific report shows that, at the current rate, life as we know it could end in 10 years. Dane contends, “That is not my data. That data is coming from the most recognized frontline arctic methane climate scientists. Methane is an issue that is also not being reported. That is the linchpin on our collective coffin if the atmosphere fills with enough methane. I don’t want to downplay the damage done to the planet because we have cut down over half of Earth’s forests, we’ve poisoned the oceans, we’ve paved the planet and those are all significant sources of damage, but the single greatest assault on Earth’s natural systems at this time is climate engineering. When we have that kind of engineering going on, it prevents the planet from responding to the damage done.”
Dane goes on to say, “The power structure knows this is going on, and they know they can’t hide it much longer. What’s their likely hole card that they will play when they know they can’t hide it any longer? They’ll start World War III, and they are maneuvering for that right now.”
Dane also points out the phenomenon called “weather whiplash,” where it is hot one day and snowing the next, as it did recently in New York. Wigington says this is all being covered up to keep the public in the dark for as long as they can. Wigington says, “We have the paid liars, and I wish I could use a more diplomatic term. For example, The Weather Channel is owned by the corporate power structure. . . . We have the foxes running the hen house. We have people at The Weather Channel trying to explain away the completely engineered weather as natural. At this point, can we call them anything but paid liars? With “weather whiplash,” people should understand that something is radically wrong in New York when more than a week ago, we went from record shattering high temperatures to snow in less than 24 hours. . . . This kind of “weather whiplash” can only be created by climate engineering.”
In closing, Wigington says, “We are facing converging cataclysms. When people focus on jobs, economy and retirement, how much will any of that matter if we have a planet that doesn’t support life? If we lose our habitat and every breath we take is full of toxic heavy metal that is making us sicker and dumber by the day . . . . And my only goal is to bring this issue to light and to a halt. We know we have major collusion between all the major powers in the world on this issue. The single biggest leap we can take in the right direction is to expose and stop weather engineering which is weather warfare, and stop these programs in their tracks.”

(There is much more in the video interview.)
After the Interview:
Dane Wigington has jam packed GeoEngineeringWatch.org with information, numerous sources and articles to back up his points. Wigington sent me a few links that reinforce the points he brought up in this interview, and you can click on them below.
You can also donate to GeoEngineeringWatch.org, and that information can be found at the top right hand side of their homepage.
Even now the vast majority of first world nation populations are completely oblivious to the unfolding environmental cataclysms that are closing in from every side. This unimaginable blindness is, unfortunately, willful in most cases.The majority choose to accept any power structure paid for propaganda, disinformation, and lies of omission, that enforces their comfort zones. A societal epidemic of normalcy bias also fuels the near total lack of wider horizon comprehension. Denial of reality does not alter reality, this fact will soon enough be clear to all those that have so far chosen not to objectively investigate frontline truths. Fully facing unimaginably dire realities is difficult, but true solace and a true sense of purpose cannot be found any other way. The report below is a harsh dose of reality, but, if we are to have any chance of altering the course of certain omnicide which we are currently on, we must look through a clear lens and face reality head-on. As dire as the report below may seem, it would be even worse if the critical issue of climate engineering was also addressed (which it is not).
Extinction Is The End Game
Civilizations are living organisms striving to survive and develop through predictable stages of birth, growth, maturation, decline and death. An often overlooked factor in the success or failure of civilizations are cultural memes—the knowledge, beliefs, and behaviors passed down from generation to generation. Cultural memes are a much more significant driver of human evolution than genetic evolution. Entire civilizations have been weeded out when their belief system proved maladaptive to a changing environment. One such cultural meme holding sway over today’s governments, institutions, and society is our economic system of capitalism. The pillars of capitalism represent a belief system so ingrained in today’s culture that they form a sort of cargo cult amongst its adherents. Cargo cults are any of the various Melanesian religious groups which focused on obtaining material wealth(manufactured Western goods that came on cargo ships) through magical thinking, religious rituals and practices. Today the term “cargo cult” is used to describe a wide variety of phenomena that involve superficial imitation of a process or system in order to fabricate a successful outcome without even the basic understanding of its mechanism.
The tenets of capitalism are ritually followed in the proclaimed belief that “a rising tide lifts all boats”, i.e. so-called improvements in the general economy will benefit all participants in that economy. Centuries of unbridled capitalism have demonstrated beyond any doubt that it does not lift all boats. A new study finds that half of Americans are “shut off from economic growth”. The rules of the game are so stacked against the masses that this week a professor said“only all-out thermonuclear war might fundamentally reset the existing distribution of resources.” Capitalism’s imperative for expansion, growing profit levels, and efficiency has ultimately dehumanized our culture. Not even when our basic life support systems are being torn asunder do the vast majority question the path we are on. We are all a captive audience to the system and those few dissident voices are snuffed out under the wheels of “progress”.
Truth be told, the corporate elite have long written off all those people living hand to mouth. Trump’s pick for Labor Secretary said, unlike workers, machines are “always polite, they always upsell, they never take a vacation, they never show up late, there’s never a slip-and-fall, or an age, sex, or race discrimination case.” Massive global unemployment resulting from the automation revolution has not yet been addressed by governments. Roughly half of all jobs in the U.S. are at risk of automation and two-thirds in the developing countries. This is all coming at a time when humans are fast destroying the ecosystems underpinning the very foundation upon which human civilization has developed over thousands of years. Mass migration of climate refugees will only further destabilize governments, stoke ethnic and cultural tensions, and give rise to fascist political movements. No conspiracy is needed to exterminate the “useless eaters”, just allow mother nature to take its course and climate change will be killing billions by mid century. Those in military planning know this and periodically express their fear of what is coming, but business-as-usual rolls on.
Capitalism’s constant impetus to shift costs, risks, and burdens off industry and onto the environment and society carries on under the guise of “being more competitive”. It’s a way of externalizing costs to maximize profit and if these costs were truly taken into account, none of the world’s top industries would be profitable(Interestingly, the link to this study has been scrubbed from the internet). It’s the height of magical thinking to put so much faith in some mystical “invisible hand of the free market” to solve existential threats such as an ever-widening wealth gap and the wholesale destruction of planetary life-support systems. There is no benevolent “invisible hand” turning individual self-interest into the common good. The primary mandate of capitalism is to protect and grow capital. The “invisible hand” is just a bunch of people scrambling to make as much money as possible, not caring or oblivious to those they hurt in the process. F**k the invisible hand of the market. The invisible hand of mother nature will punish those who squander Earth’s rich but finite resources.
It’s been clear for some time that we have past the point of no return, triggering multiple tipping points in Earth’s living systems. New findings are continually confirming scientists’ worst nightmares. A key glacier in the Antarctic that holds back 10 feet of sea level rise was just described as breaking apart from the inside out. In other grim news, the long feared carbon bomb has now been quantified and is projected to release the emissions equivalent of an industrial country like the U.S. in the next few decades, prompting researchers to say that “climate change may be considerably more rapid than we thought it was.” Biodiversity loss is another critical threshold we have breeched: “New research shows that local extinctions have already occurred in 47% of the 976 plant and animal species studied.” A new study also reveals that the planet’s tallest animal is facing extinction after its numbers have plummeted in recent years, with the ominous warning that “many species are slipping away before we can even describe them.” Forests are being wiped out by armies of invasive insects. Because of a rapidly changing climate and the vast scale of the problem, the idea that reforestation will somehow save us is a pipe dream. Those forests won’t stay healthy enough to serve as carbon sinks and besides, seven times Earth’s land area would need to be in cultivation in order to reduce the planet’s atmospheric CO2 level down to 350ppm.
Note that the Permian Mass extinction is estimated to have happened anywhere over the course of 200,000 years to 15 million years. The current 6th mass extinction is happening orders of magnitude faster due to a multitude of factors including deforestation, habitat fragmentation, chemical pollution, poaching, etc., making this current disaster very unique in Earth’s history:
The team of geologists and biologists say that our current extinction crisis is unique in Earth’s history due to four characteristics: the spread of non-native species around the world; a single species (us) taking over a significant percentage of the world’s primary production; human actions increasingly directing evolution; and the rise of something called the technosphere. – Link
Perhaps the fate of humans was written in stone once we stood upright and developed tools. To a large degree, modern technology has been an expression of the energy-dense hydrocarbon fuels we discovered and are not willingly giving up anytime soon. Once fossil fuels ignited the Industrial Revolution and the Haber–Bosch process unleashed the human population bomb, nothing could stop the deadly carbon consumption feedback loop, not even decades of scientific warnings.
From a throwback to our primate ancestors, modern humans have been hard-wired to ignore threats that are not immediate or local; global ecological overshoot(of which climate is just one aspect) is imperceptible to the real-time cognitive processing of humans and represents the ultimate under-the-radar threat able to undermine our reasoning and response:
Psychological concepts of how we view the world around us, including ‘creeping normalcy’ or ‘landscape amnesia’, block day-to-day comprehension of what accelerating human activities represent—whether it is human population, the number of dammed rivers, forest destruction, or the impact of motor car emissions in a timespan that is geologically brief. Creeping normalcy refers to slow trends concealed in noisy fluctuations that people get used to without comment, while landscape amnesia describes forgetting how different the landscape looked 20–50 years ago (Diamond 2005: 425).
In his study of how societies fail, biogeographer Jared Diamond calls global warming a pre-eminent example of a ‘slow trend concealed by wide up and down fluctuations’ (2005: 425). He likens the denial of climate change impacts by leading politicians, including former US president George W. Bush (and his contemporary John Howard in Australia), in the late 1990s and early 2000s to the elite of ‘the medieval Greenlanders [who] had similar difficulties recognizing that their climate was gradually becoming colder, and the Maya and Anasazi (in Central and North America) [who] had trouble discerning that theirs was becoming drier’ (2005: 425). – link
We evolved to react to imminent dangers, not slow-rolling and seemingly invisible catastrophes as an unintended consequence of our cushy lifestyle. From lofty corporate boardrooms to the filthy streets of skid row, the mass of humanity is following the same biological script of overshoot and collapse seen in every organism from bacteria to reindeer herds. Fossil fuels only enabled the destruction to multiply a million-fold, culminating in one final and spectacular explosion of human activity that will leave the planet nearly barren for eons.
Open-ended growth appears to be inherent in nature, all the way from the DNA to the arthropods to mammals, including humans. Open-ended growth is the psychology of a cancer cell. I am not sure I know of a species which has learnt how to limit its own growth. Unfortunately species which transcend their environmental resources can hardly survive – the final arbiter of the climate impasse will be nature itself. ~ Andrew Glikson, Earth and paleo-climate scientist, Australian National University
The beauty and wonder of this planet is being trashed by a naked ape whose cleverness in tool-building has far outstripped his ability to handle it in any restrained or judicious manner. Nature’s rich book of life is being pancaked into a cheap, crumpled comic book.
Add in the development of mass consumerism, planned obsolescence, and the hypnosis of corporate-sponsored TV and you have a passive, malleable population happily marching towards the slaughterhouse. It’s fitting, then, that the masses would be swindled by a megalomaniac bankruptcy artist who dabbled in Reality TV. Every one of Trump’s cabinet picks is a big middle finger in the faces of those who fell for his pseudo-populist rhetoric: billionaires, Wall Street sharks, Goldman Sachs alumni, and hardcore laissez-faire capitalists chomping at the bit to deregulate, monetize, and privatize every last bit of what remains. The allure of capitalism has always been that you’re just one lucky break away from becoming one of those fat cats, if only someone would give you a chance. A prescient observation by Ugo Bardi from earlier this year:
Trump is a symptom of the ongoing breakdown of the social pact…capitalizing on this breakdown by…playing on the attempt of the white (former) middle class to maintain at least some of its previous prosperity and privileges. Trump is…an unavoidable consequence of resource depletion. – Link
The bottom line is that a swing towards authoritarianism happens when resources become scarce. Climate change is simply a symptom of humans overshooting the planet’s carrying capacity. Free market ideologues are nearly always climate ‘skeptics’ because acknowledging the reality of human-induced climate change would be an admission that industry must be curtailed or controlled. Left-leaning people nearly always accept the science because it goes along with their criticisms of capitalism which externalizes social and environmental costs for the benefit of just a few at the top of the economic hierarchy. Thus we see parasitic Trump surrounding himself with right-wing, climate denying, fossil fuel corporatists and insiders who will be doing everything in their power to dismantle health and environmental regulations including privatizing social services which are barriers to capitalist expansion.
To be blunt, our chance of developing a sustainable culture passed us by a long time ago. People will try to adapt until they cannot, and myths will be created to explain away harsh realities. A dystopic future in all its horrific glory has arrived: baked-in biospheric collapse, the inherent and irreconcilable contradictions of techno-capitalism, a dysfunctional political system unable to come to terms with root causes, and the cognitive dissonance of the masses blind to the bigger picture. Our numbers are not a safeguard from extinction.

Yellow shows the warmest temperatures. Photograph: AP
2014 and 2015 each set the record for hottest calendar year since we began measuring surface temperatures over 150 years ago, and 2016 is almost certain to break the record once again. It will be without precedent: the first time that we’ve seen three consecutive record-breaking hot years.
But it’s just happenstance that the calendar year begins in January, and so it’s also informative to compare all yearlong periods. In doing so, it becomes clear that we’re living in astonishingly hot times.
June 2015 through May 2016 was the hottest 12-month period on record. That was also true of May 2015 through April 2016, and the 12 months ending in March 2016. In fact, it’s true for every 12 months going all the way back to the period ending in September 2015, according to global surface temperature datacompiled by Kevin Cowtan and Robert Way. We just set the record for hottest year in each of the past 9 months.
Running 12-month average global surface temperature using data compiled by Kevin Cowtan and Robert Way. Illustration: Dana Nuccitelli
These record temperatures have been assisted by a very strong El Niño event, which brought warm water to the ocean surface, temporarily warming global surface temperatures. But today’s temperatures are only record-setting because the El Niño was superimposed on top of human-caused global warming.
For comparison, 1997–1998 saw a very similar monster El Niño event. And similarly, the 12-month hottest temperature record was set in each month from October 1997 through August 1998. That was likewise a case of El Niño and global warming teaming up to shatter previous temperature records.
The difference is that while September 1997–August 1998 was the hottest 12-month period on record at the time; it’s now in 60th place. It’s been surpassed by yearlong periods in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2014, 2015, and 2016. Many of those years weren’t even aided by El Niño events; unassisted global warming made them hotter than 1998.
Global surface temperatures are now more than 0.3°C hotter than they were in 1997–1998. That’s a remarkable rise over just 18 years, in comparison to the 1°C the Earth’s average surface temperatures have risen since the Industrial Revolution began.
This has all happened during a time when ‘no significant warming in 18 years’ has been one of the rallying cries of climate denial. In reality, when we compare apples to apples – El Niño years to El Niño years – we’ve seen more than 0.3°C global surface warming over the past 18 years, which is in line with climate model predictions. ‘Climate models are wrong’ has been another now-debunked climate denial rallying cry.
Now that the past year’s El Niño event is over, the streak of record-breaking yearlong periods appears to have ended. Nevertheless, 2016 remains on track to break that record for the hottest calendar year, for an unprecedented third consecutive year, following record years in 2010 and 2005 as well.
With Apr update, 2016 still > 99% likely to be a new record (assuming historical ytd/ann patterns valid).
With the Earth warming dangerously rapidly, at a rate 20–50 times faster than the fastest rate of natural global warming, one can’t help but wonder when the influence of the small minority of disproportionately powerful climate denial groups will wane.
195 countries pledged to curb their carbon pollution in the tremendously successful Paris climate negotiations, but climate denial is still predominant in one of America’s two political parties, and may be gaining foothold in other regions of the Anglosphere like the UK and Australia. Fortunately, many other countries like China, India, and Canada seem to be moving in the right direction with their climate and energy policies.
Now that climate denial’s bread and butter arguments are toast, November’s US elections will be critical in determining whether the country continues along the path of climate leadership established by President Obama, or allows the oil industry’s puppet party to continue peddling long-debunked myths in order to delay climate action and put future generations at risk.
With global warming constantly breaking temperature records, and dozens of scientific organizations warning policymakers that “To reduce the risk of the most severe impacts of climate change, greenhouse gas emissions must be substantially reduced,” we can no longer use ignorance as an excuse.
Some 70 years ago our government made the decision to commit the human race and all life on Earth to a lethal global climate engineering experiment. The power brokers did this without our knowledge or consent while being fully aware that the consequences of this experiment could never be undone. Governments all over the world have long since been a part of the global climate engineering cabal, extensive historical documents prove this fact. Of the countless forms of anthropogenic damage to the climate and the biosphere, the geoengineering/solar radiation management assault is mathematically the most devastating. Every life form on the planet has been completely betrayed by those behind the weather warfare atrocities, and betrayed by the science and media circles who are actively and aggressively helping to hide the ongoing geoengineering omnicide.

Astoundingly, only a few days before the scorching heat took hold in the US West, snow was falling in multiple states. The geoengineers are aggressively utilizing chemical ice nucleation methods (whenever and wherever there is enough atmospheric moisture) to temporarily (and toxically) lower the temperatures. In addition to the total contamination of the precipitation, the short term chemical cool-downs are also all too often extremely destructive. One primary agenda of the ongoing climate engineering assault is to continue fueling the confusion and division of populations in regard to the true state of the climate and the true extent of damage to it. The weather radar image below was taken on June 16th, clearly showing snow falling near regions of the West that experienced record shattering heat only days after.
Radar images now often reveal frozen precipitation occurring with surrounding air and ground temperatures that are far too warm to support natural ice nucleation processes.
The atmospheric spraying of highly toxic metal and chemical particles is not only worsening the climate catastrophe and overall heating of the planet, it is also causing epic drought all over the globe (with record deluges occurring in other locations). With the water levels in Nevada's Lake Mead now at record shattering lows and dropping further by the day, the Las Vegas spigot is about to run dry.
The dry season is just beginning with Lake Mead already at record low levels and long term forecasts (scheduled weather) for rapidly deepening drought.
Las Vegas has recently spent nearly a billion dollars on a water project designed to drain the last drops of water from Lake Mead.
A steel cap on top of an intake riser holds back what is left of the water in Lake Mead. This final attempt to tap the last of the remaining water storage is a true sign of desperation.

Many citizens of first world countries have so far largely chosen to ignore the unfolding global climate cataclysm as if they are somehow immune to the accelerating biosphere collapse. Such arrogant denial will very soon be shattered on every front. Those who control the climate, control the flow of water, and thus the populations that depend on it. The masses in less fortunate countries have long since been reaping the full impact of the climate engineering assault.

The people of India (who are also suffering from record shattering high temperatures and record drought) are an example of what is unfolding all over the world. Due to the atmospheric saturation of electrically conductive particles from climate engineering, increased lightning strikes are also taking a heavy toll on populations. Nearly 100 people have just been killed by countless lighting strikes in India.

If the human race and life on Earth are to have any chance of surviving the short term horizon, there must be an immediate and complete course correction. Industrialized/militarized society has decimated the planet, climate engineering is the epitome of this willful destruction. May, 2016, was the 13th month in a row of record shattering global temperatures, how long does anyone think we can continue on such a trend and still have any chance of avoiding total omnicide? Record high Arctic temperatures and the disintegration of Arctic ice is also accelerating at blinding speed. What is the response of our government? To place illegal gag orders on the majority of weather/climate scientists and to fire other frontline scientists. What we collectively face is nothing less than an existential threat. The single greatest leap forward we could make in this battle for survival is to expose and halt the climate engineering global assault. This battle can only be won if we are all committed to the effort, make your voice heard.

The IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) is the largest scientific panel ever created on any subject in human history. Many have, unfortunately, chosen to believe this panel of scientists is paid to put out falsified "alarmist" data. The reality is this, yes, the IPCC has put out a great deal of false and misleading information, but in the exact opposite direction of what many have convinced themselves of. The threat we face is not off on the horizon somewhere, the climate and biosphere implosion is here, now, and the entire web of life is at stake. Government sponsored organizations like the IPCC are tasked with masking the true extent of climate disintegration, not disclosing it. Once the wider population fully awakens to the truth that the biosphere is indeed imploding and that we have all been forced to be a part of a massive and highly toxic climate engineering experiment (which has helped to fuel the overall planetary meltdown), panic will ensue. What other steps have governments taken in the attempt to hide the converging cataclysms and the climate engineering insanity? The US is firing many climate scientists and putting illegal federal gag orders on the rest. On the other side of the planet US ally Australia is doing the same. In the meantime, the carbon industry continues to fund a constant parade of disinformation while the Arctic melts and heat records continue to topple. Global climate engineering is further fueling the planetary meltdown from every direction. If the human race does not completely and immediately alter its current course, "Venus syndrome" will be the final destination. Though the report below does not cover the geoengineering factor, the front line assessment of biosphere damage is on target.
Global climate engineering is helping to fuel the overall planetary meltdown.
Could This Be Our Biggest Blunder On Climate Change?
Source: The Mound Of Sound
In the early years of the Inter-Governmental Panel on Climate Change, the IPCC, we were introduced to what was presented as a long-distance, multi-generational phenomenon. We were told if we didn't change our ways things would be pretty rough for those who would follow us two or three generations down the road.
Take Arctic sea ice, for example. The IPCC warned us, not that long ago, that if we continued with our usual fossil energy pattern the Arctic could be "ice free" by 2100. To forestall that we were told we needed to sharply cut our carbon emissions and rapidly transition to a clean energy economy.
2100, they might as well have said 4100. A number of studies have shown that it's human nature to see numbers as distant as 2100 as almost irrelevant. People will sacrifice if necessary for their children's survival. They might even entertain some sacrifice if they perceive a realistic prospect of harming their grandchildren. But 2100, 84 years from now? Who cares? They can't connect themselves to that. It's too distant. Why should they sacrifice now for something that might, might benefit people they can't even envision that far down the road?
You know what does work, what does motivate people? You may see it soon enough. What works is when people see what's barreling down on them – here, now, or in the next ten to twenty years. That gets their attention.
Florida. When it comes to climate change many Floridians have been dead from the neck up until very recently. Three words – sea level rise – and the switch was flipped. The governor may still be brain dead but people with those lovely waterfront homes and condos woke up from their collective coma. They began to understand that the seas were going to rise and this was not a good thing when you own low-lying waterfront property. They began to understand the climate change Trifecta – sea level rise, high tides and storm surges. People began to learn what that holds in store even for their utilities – electricity, fresh water and that all important one, sewage.
Let's go back to the Arctic and that sea ice business. 2100 was the date until just a couple of years ago when the US Navy said its people figured the Arctic would be ice free for navigation by 2020, perhaps even as early as 2016. Guess what? It's going to be ice free for navigation this year and, if not, next year for certain. What ever happened to 2100? In 2010 they were telling us 2100. They were only out by 84 years. How in hell did that happen? What else did they get wrong? Plenty, it seems.
Back in 2010 we talked a lot about "tipping points." The idea was that we had to keep man made warming below 2 degrees Celsius if we wanted to avoid triggering these tipping points that would launch us into runaway global warming. These tipping points were triggers that would activate natural mechanisms that would release masses of greenhouse gases far in excess of anything man ever emitted.
That magical 2C target? Well that was a political number ginned up by – you guessed it – the same people who said the Arctic would be ice free by 2100.
At the Paris climate summit last December, even our politicians could no longer put up with that 2C nonsense. So they came up with a new nonsensical figure, 1.5C. That was the new, "never exceed" number to avoid catastrophic global warming.
The scientific community was quick to point out that, with the existing atmospheric loading of persistent greenhouse gases, we've already locked in 1.5C of warming. In a combination of sarcasm and anger they pointed out that it was a great target but it meant decarbonizing our economy and our societies now, immediately. In other words, that horse has left the barn. Our enviromin, Ms. McKenna can say she's going to close that barn door but she's just blowing smoke up our backsides.
How could the IPCC get it so wrong? How could they warn of an ice free Arctic in 2100? How could they not see it coming by 2016? Here's an explanation. They were working on man made emissions. They didn't factor in tipping points and natural feedback loops. Humans may have pulled the pin but the grenade that's going off up at the pole, that's a natural feedback loop. That's nature's doing. It's part of runaway global warming. No point fretting about tipping points when the canoe has already turned turtle.
This is where the scientific debate on global warming comes in. Scientific debate? What debate? That's over, surely. 97% of climate scientists have reached a powerful consensus, right? Oh sure, they've agreed that 1) climate change is very, very real, and 2) that climate change (or the aspects of it that were in dispute) is man made. But that's not today's debate. The current debate is whether we can arrest global warming or have we already left it too late.
Climate science is tough, demanding work. It's not for the faint-hearted. There have already been casualties. Some just can't bear it and leave the field, taking a teaching post or doing industrial research. Some have succumbed to depression, something akin to climate PTSD. Some, like Guy McPherson, have thrown in the towel and now spend their time chronicling tipping points we've already passed. (A word of caution. The information at that link will be deeply unsettling. Proceed with care.) The rest, those who soldier on, figure out whether we can still arrest global warming and how we can prepare for what's coming. There aren't a lot of cheerleaders in that crowd.
Hydrologist Robert Ellison put the struggle this way:
"This is a cultural clash for the hearts and minds of people and at stake is the future of the planet." Can you imagine sitting down to that grim notion at your desk every morning?
We allowed climate science to be politicized, transformed into another front of our culture wars. What madness. Along the way the narrative got hijacked, ginned up, corrupted.
What if we had said, forget about 2100, you'll be taking a hammering by 2020 or 2025? In other words, this isn't some abstract notion that may affect people that aren't even born yet. This is a reality and you will have to deal with it.
2020 that's the predicted arrival date of what's being called "climate departure." Think of it as the abrupt transition from "old climate" – the climate you've known all your life – into a "new climate." One of the hallmarks of this new climate is that every year of the new climate will be hotter than the hottest year ever experienced in the old climate. There won't be any cool years, only very hot years.
Climate departure is supposed to set in first in areas such as the Caribbean, Central America and in equatorial regions elsewhere. Insufferable heat will be one problem but heat brings any number of knock-on effects – severe weather events of increasing intensity, frequency and duration; disease and pest problems; disruption of freshwater resources, on and on and on. If you haven't been following conditions across Central America you should know that they're already on the ropes, have been for years. Here, here, and here.
Climate departure will spread, sort of like the "creeping damp," until it's everywhere by 2047. It's not to say that cold places will be as hot as more tropical regions. They won't. They'll just be consistently hotter than they ever were prior to the "new climate" era.
As the Telesur article points out, America will soon be facing a major climate migration problem on its southern borders as today's trickle of migrants, about 10,000 a year, becomes a tide of people in search not of better paid jobs but survival. In case you're wondering, America is not planning to throw open her doors to a horde of climate migrants. I don't want to get into how they're planning to stop them.
In other words, our great blunder, this illusion about distant events in 2100, long after we're safely gone, may be erased from our minds by climate events overtaking our serenity and ease over the next five to ten years. Will that be enough to shake us out of our complacency toward climate change? Will we become willing to accept what must be done to upgrade our own economy, our society, even our governance? I don't know but we won't have long to wait for the answer.

Earth's former energy balance has been completely derailed, we are now in a free-fall state toward an irreparably altered and very inhospitable planet. The majority of populations (especially in industrialized countries) are even now immersed in total denial in regard to the damage that has been inflicted to the environment and climate systems by human activity. Any form of anthropogenic activity that impacts Earth's natural processes must be considered a form of geoengineering. The greatest and most destructive form of biosphere interference is the ongoing highly toxic climate engineering/weather warfare global assault. Burning forests, drought, deluge, volcanic eruptions, nuclear contamination and die-off, are already now the norm and this process will accelerate rapidly. Geoengineering is being ramped up to unimaginable levels as the collapse of the biosphere and social structure unfolds. The 9 minute video compilation below is a revealing recent update that covers numerous climate and environmental catastrophes.
Catastrophic flooding has just occurred in Europe, the stunning 45 second video below is yet another example what is unfolding and accelerating around the Globe.
France is one of the latest victims of flooding while the torrential downpours in Texas are becoming relentless. Though such disasters are still considered "natural" occurrences, this conclusion should be considered complete deception. The human race has decimated the planet and its life support processes, climate engineering is the epitome of this destruction.
Each of us bears the responsibility of choosing what our priorities are, each of us chooses what we will do with the time we have been given. Make your voice heard in the critical battle for the common good, all are needed in the effort to sound the alarm. The greatest single leap we could make in the right direction is to fully expose and halt the climate engineering insanity. Help us to fully expose global geoengineering by forwarding credible information to media sources and those that are uninformed on the issue. Every day counts in this fight to salvage what is yet left of our planet's life support systems.
Fish are dying, wildlife is dying, the entire web of life is dying, but willful denial of verifiable realities continues to thrive. The global fish die-off is already beyond catastrophic, but the "experts" seem to have little to offer in the way of answers. Why? Because those in power are largely in control of the chess board, at least for the moment. Those who print the money (the bankers) control militaries, countries, and every imaginable institution down the line. How can we expect the paid "experts" to disclose the true severity of what we collectively face (and the true causes behind the converging catastrophes) when their paychecks and pensions almost always depend on them not disclosing the whole truth? Those who are truly in the know and thus in a prime position to sound the alarm face much more dire consequences than the loss of their employment. In regard to the global fish die-off, what don't we hear from the "experts" and the media? That the oceans (and fresh water lakes) are rapidly heating along with the rest of the planet. That this heating de-oxygenates the water and fuels algae blooms which further de-oxygenate the water. We don't hear that warming oceans are causing mass deposits of formerly frozen methane to thaw and release, also contaminating and deoxygenating oceans. And we certainly never hear a word from the "experts" about the ongoing climate engineering assault that is exacerbating the now runaway warming (in addition to contaminating the entire planet). Of course, we also never hear about the military's other devastating activities that are slaughtering marine life, or about the military's willingness to lie about their actions. And about Fukushima, yes, it is a catastrophe for the seas (and the planet as a whole), but there is much more to story in regard to the fish die-offs. The bottom line is that the vast majority of media sources (even "independent" sources), are only telling half-truths at best.

First, about the rapidly accelerating global fish die-off, the excerpt below is from a report that was just posted by Michael T. Snyder from "The Economic Collapse" website.
Why are millions upon millions of dead sea creatures suddenly washing up on beaches all over the world? It is certainly not unusual for fish and other inhabitants of our oceans to die. This happens all the time. But over the past month we have seen a series of extremely alarming mass death incidents all over the planet. As you will see below, many of these mass death incidents have involved more than 30 tons of fish. In places such as Chile and Vietnam, it has already gotten to the level where it has started to become a major national crisis. People see their coastlines absolutely buried in dead sea creatures, and they are starting to freak out.
For example, just check out what is going on in Chile right now. The following comes from a Smithsonian Magazine article entitled “Why Are Chilean Beaches Covered With Dead Animals?“…
Compared to other countries, Chile is almost all coast, and that geographical fluke means that the country is known for its beautiful beaches. But that reputation may be on the wane thanks to a new sight on Chilean shores: dead animals. Lots of them. Heaps of them, in fact. As Giovanna Fleitas reports for the Agence France-Presse, the South American country’s beaches are covered with piles of dead sea creatures—and scientists are trying to figure out why.
Tales of dead animals washing up on shore are relatively common; after all, the ocean has a weird way of depositing its dead on shore. But Chile’s problem is getting slightly out of hand. As Fleitas writes, recent months have not been kind to the Chilean coast, which has played host to washed-up carcasses of over 300 whales, 8,000 tons of sardines, and nearly 12 percent of the country’s annual salmon catch, to name a few.
Authorities in Chile are scrambling to come up with a reason for why this is happening, but nobody appears to be quite sure what is causing this tsunami of death.
In Vietnam, things are even worse. At this point, so many dead fish and clams have been washing up along the coast that soldiers have been deployed to bury them…
Millions of fish have washed up dead along a 125-kilometre stretch of the Vietnamese coast in one of the communist country’s worst environmental disasters.
Soldiers have been deployed to bury tonnes of fish, clams and the occasional whale that began dying in early April along the north-central coast, including some popular tourist beaches.
Vietnamese officials facing growing anger over the disaster have not announced the official cause of the deaths, which have affected the livelihoods of tens of thousands of families.
At least 35 tons of dead fish appeared in a lake in southern China, leaving residents stunned.
The piles of fish washed up in a lake in Hainan province on Wednesday, Chinese state media reported.
Residents expressed concerns on pollution, but local authorities said the fish died as a result of salinity change.
On the other side of the world, similar incidents have also happened in major lakes. Here is one example from Bolivia…
Thousands of dead fish have washed up onto the shores of a lake in Bolivia.
Just before they died, some of the fish had just hatched from their eggs in lake Alalay, in the central Bolivian city of Cochabamba.
No one yet knows the number of dead fish, but they have stockpiled five cubic metres (177 cubic feet) so far, so it’s possible there is over a tonne of dead fish in the lake.
And here is an example from Brazil…
More than 200 tons of dead fish were removed from the Furnas Lake on Sunday (1st) in Alfenas (MG). According to the Military Police of the Environment, both fish raised in ponds, networks and those who are released, all of the tilapia species in the lake were affected. The damage to the psicultores is estimated at around R $ 900 thousand.
I could go on and on all day with examples such as these.
So why is this happening?
I don’t know.
Could it be possible that these mass deaths are somehow related to the alarming earth changes that we see happening all around us?
Without a doubt, we have seen a dramatic rise in seismic activity during the early portions of 2016. There has been a series of very destructive earthquakes around the world in recent months, and once dormant volcanoes are coming to life all over the globe with distressing regularity.
Of course humanity has done much to destroy the planet as well, and we continue to deal with the aftermath of the Fukushima nuclear disaster. I do think that it is very interesting to note that most of these mass fish deaths have happened in nations that border the Pacific Ocean.
I am certainly not claiming to have an answer for why so many fish are dying. All I know is that millions upon millions of dead fish are washing up on shores all over the globe, and people are really starting to freak out about this.
We live in a world that is becoming increasingly unstable, and major disasters seem to be getting more frequent and more intense. Just look at what is happening up in Alberta right now.
I believe that we are entering the “perfect storm” that myself and so many others have been warning about for so long.
Or could it be possible that I am just being overly dramatic?
Though I am grateful to Mr. Snyder for helping to document the extremely alarming fish die-off, it is interesting that he seems to be in complete denial of the fact that our planet is descending into total meltdown.
But some climate “experts” are really playing down the impact of El Nino. Instead, they are attempting to convince us that what we are witnessing is simply the result of “man-made climate change”, and they are using this as an opportunity to promote their agenda.
Is our climate really as damaged as the "experts" are telling us? No, in reality, it is much much worse. Unfortunately people like Mr. Snyder are only telling half-truths, climate engineering and climate realities are not a part of the narrative for Snyder and others like him. The engineered "cool-downs" of key regions like the most populated zones of the US has helped those in power keep populations confused and divided on the true state of the climate. When confused, many end up actually toeing the line for the very power structure they claim to be fighting against. How fast is the planet warming? The recently released data reflected on the 20 second animated graph below paints a very clear and very dire picture.

Will global geoengineering help? No, 70 years of global climate engineering has only helped to further fuel the overall warming of the planet. Those in power have always known that climate engineering/solar radiation management/weather warfare would only ever cause immense and irreparable harm, geoenginering is a weapon of total control they will never willingly give up. Man's attempt to engineer earth's life support systems is the absolute epitome of human insanity. Geoengineering has played a major role in the dying of the seas. The planet is heating so rapidly that we may an ice free Arctic as early as September of this year, 2016. All mainstream media and most "independent" media will not mention such dire front line data. If the oceans die, the planet dies, and all of us with it. Do your part in the most critical battle to sound the alarm on the climate engineering insanity, educate yourself and learn how to make the most effective difference in the fight to raise critical awareness.

The forests are dying, the oceans are dying, the Earth is dying, and even at this late hour the vast majority of first world societies remain completely immersed in total denial and apathy that is manifested in many forms. The ever growing list of extreme weather events and unfolding global die-offs are not discussed or disclosed by the power structure owned and controlled corporate media machine of mass distraction. Though climate engineering is aggressively denied by the criminal media cabals, it is real, ongoing, and lethal to all life.
The media's the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that's power. Because they control the minds of the masses. Malcolm X
Industrialized/militarized civilization is in its death throes, the pounding of the planet by the covert climate engineering assault is a testimony to the near total loss of sanity in modern society. Every breath we take is now toxic, air particulate pollution is taking an immense toll on human health. The largest source of this atmospheric pollution, climate engineering, is systematically denied by the central banker controlled so called "experts" whose paid for opinions societies blindly accept. Those who dare to even mention the truth often face draconian consequences from a societal system that has in so many ways abandoned any sense of reason or morality.

While criminal leaders seek the expansion of empire, the point of no return for life on Earth has potentially already been passed. The primary objective of the facade global climate conferences is to covertly force countries to accept the ongoing and expanding climate engineering insanity. The long term goal to limit global average temperature rise to 2C (set only last year at the Paris climate conference, 2015), may possibly be officially exceeded only one year from the date of the conference, 2016. Rapidly worsening global droughts are decimating ecosystems and populations. In regard to the epic droughts, climate engineering is verifiably the single greatest causal factor (also fueling forest fires like the catastrophic inferno currently burning in Canada), yet, again, this fact is completely ignored or blatantly denied by the corporate media, academia, and their paid for "experts". To control the water supply is to control populations.
Ghost ships on a now dry Aral Sea, climate engineering is wreaking havoc on Earth's life support systems.
The deadly heat wave that is occurring in India is only one example. It may become the most deadly ever, and summer is still to come. Is India being punished by the climate engineers for its recent ousting of Monsanto? Though the runaway planetary warming is all too real (with countless forms of anthropogenic damage fueling the fire), all available evidence makes clear that the geoengineers can clearly push extreme conditions further in any direction.
It is estimated that Monsanto may be responsible for the deaths of as many as 300,000 Indian farmers.
But what about all the headlines of the expanding Arctic ice? This narrative was just another well funded lie put out by the military/industrial complex and the geoengineers. The lie has been enthusiastically embraced by many that did not bother to look for (or perhaps did not want) verifiable front line facts. Arctic sea ice extent and volume is plunging far into record low territory and may not survive the summer (yes, this summer). If this does occur it would radically accelerate the already runaway warming scenario that climate engineering is contributing to overall. Climate engineering can and is creating short term toxic cooling events at the cost of a worsened overall warming. Recent studies indicate the Arctic has not had ice free summers for some 6 to 10 million years. Vanishing ice is impacting jet stream patterns (though geoengineering and the ionosphere heaters are also a major factor affecting and disrupting jet stream patterns). About our odds of extinction, a just published science report states that:
“A typical person is more than five times as likely to die in an extinction event as in a car crash,”
The reality of the rapidly accelerating climate disintegration is, unfortunately, much worse than even this headline indicates. In fact, global high temperatures have just skyrocket past the 12th consecutive month in a row of all time record high temperatures for any month. To be clear, this means that each of the last 12 months successively broke the all time high temperature record for ANY month ever recorded since record keeping began. Coral reefs are bleaching and dying around the globe from excessive and accelerating ocean heating. Where is the human race and planet Earth headed if we do not immediately and completely change course? "Venus Syndrome" will be our near term final destination, and all the climate engineering/solar radiation management that the military/industrial complex can deploy is only further fueling the overall planetary meltdown.
In regard to Venus, if all relevant factors were equal to Earth, Venus would only be 20 to 25 degrees warmer than Earth. Instead, due to a "runaway greenhouse scenario" and the dense atmosphere that this scenario created, the surface temperatures of Venus are now nearly 900 degrees.
But wait, the new film "Climate Hustle" completely disproves the global warming "theory", doesn't it? The short answer is absolutely NOT. The "Climate Hustle" disinformation travesty is only relevant to those who are not truly interested in front line facts in the first place (and, of course, the film never mentioned the climate engineering elephant in the room). The excerpt below shines more light on the film producer, Marc Morano, who is clearly paid to cloud the climate disintegration reality.
ExxonMobil's Climate Science Denial
After decades of financing political groups to attack the science of climate change and the scientists conducting the research, ExxonMobil is embroiled in scandal.
This follows revelations from InsideClimate News and the Los Angeles Times that Exxon not only recognized climate change as fact, and its root in fossil fuel use, but spent millions on scientific studies of our global climate system. After Exxon buried the evidence and waged an advertising and public relations campaign to deny the science, the company coordinated and financed several groups to confuse the public.
One of these groups is Marc Morano's employer, the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow, or CFACT, which pays him a $150,000 annual salary. CFACT and Exxon, along with Chevron, coal utility Southern Company and a number of other front groups forged a plan in 1998 at the American Petroleum Institute, a plan they continue to follow in 2015.
So what is the truth? How bad is our collective reality? How much time do we have if we don't completely change direction? Those who are truly interested in solid conclusions to these questions will take the necessary time to actually do some objective research of front-line facts. There is only one way forward in the battle to expose and halt climate engineering, reaching a critical mass of awareness. We must all make our voices heard in this all important effort.
The great unraveling is gaining momentum by the day, and even now the majority of the masses are fast asleep at the wheel. Our skies look like something from an apocalyptic future, our trees are dying, our oceans are dying, our planet is dying, and still the majority remain unaware. Those in power are utilizing every option at their disposal to keep populations from waking until the last possible moment. Is there still time to change course and keep any part of the ship floating? That remains to be seen, but if there is yet a chance, it will require the concerted, focused, effective, prioritized, and completely dedicated efforts of all those that are already awake. The essay below was penned for geoengineeringwatch.org by a former USAF communications officer, Col. Randall Smith, Ph.D. Though I have no means of conclusively confirming the information presented by Randall, available date does generally confirm his estimations and conclusions. The essay does not address the implosion of the climate system, methane release, or the horrific impact of climate engineering on the above mentioned factors. This being said, the content of the essay is important, especially when the source is appropriately considered. My most sincere gratitude to Col. Randall Smith for this important input and perspective on the immediate horizon that we face.
Former Air Force Officer Gives A Stern Warning
Article by Col. Randall Smith, Ph.D., Commander, NECN, contributing writer for geoengineeringwatch.org
To a very great extent, America is fighting several wars – some on foreign soil, one on our own. Aside from disrupting or eliminating the flow of items key to survival (clean water, nourishment, sanitary living conditions, etc.), governments (federal and state) are executing plans for complete disruption of our usual means of communication. This includes telephony in all of its forms (land-lines, cellular, VOiP) and the internet. You are already acutely aware of the "blackout" of the major news organizations, all of which are owned and controlled by major corporations or "banksters".

I am a former USAF electronics/communications officer and a licensed amateur radio operator. Several years ago, as I began to learn more of what at the time seemed to be literally unbelievable, I thought about the need for an emergency communications network that would reach beyond our shores and borders and to which every American could have access for a nominal cost in equipment and without a license from the now DHS dominated Federal Communications Commission. Several colleagues across the United States are attempting to do the same thing at the state level. For example, in my own state, it is fellow Oath Keepers who have stepped forward to assist in this undertaking. In other states, it is their militias who have accepted this important responsibility. Though I wish I could report that all states have in place an emergency communications network, for various reasons, I cannot. Some of those reasons include lethargy, fear, the infamous "somebody else will do it" syndrome, and religious precepts, among others.
My first active duty assignment was at Vandenberg AFB, California with the First Strategic Aerospace Division. As a young "shave-tail" from the mid-west, I soon came to love California and many of the people I met while stationed there. It has been painful for me to follow the drought situation that affects so many people is so many different ways. It has been equally painful to come to understand the reasons behind that drought.
The completely engineered California drought is far from over in spite of the most powerful El Nino event ever.
By now, you are certainly aware of the nationwide airborne aerosol spraying program which is, and has been for years, conducted by the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Coast Guard. KC-135 (and perhaps other) aircraft, which were originally designed and built as "tankers" to permit in-flight refueling, have been converted to carry payloads of a wide variety of chemical and biological "payloads". Fitted with nozzles, they have dispersed and are dispersing tons of these agents over all of the "lower 48" states, plus Alaska and Hawaii. This project is not limited to the United States or North America. It is part of a world plan. At first, many Americans thought that these were the familiar "contrails" that follow jet engines at altitude. As a B-52 and, ironically, a KC-135 electronics officer, I can tell you with absolute certainty that these are not contrails. Contrails are created when very hot, burned jet fuel vapors combine with cooler, humid air. The interaction of the two causes a cloud-like contrail. Typically, contrails are fairly short in length, and they dissipate after only a few seconds (thought they continue to follow the aircraft during its flight) so long as ambient air is cool and humid. They do not grow in width as a function of time. Very few Americans have not noticed what have come to be known as "chemtrails" (chemical trails) which may run in parallel lines or perpendicular patterns in our skies. To my knowledge, no portion of the United States has been spared. There is a great deal of useful and helpful information on "chemtrails"(geoengineering) on the internet. As always, be selective in what you read, and think critically.
Many reasons have been given in regard to the purposes of these flights. Reasons have included such things as reduction in global warming, redirection of violent weather patterns to safer locations, an aid to military communications, a defense against enemy radar and satellite surveillance/reconnaissance, etc. Another frequently cited reason has to do with controlling the weather of other countries, particularly those in which we have troops involved in conflicts. There were also many reasons given in the FEMA-Wal-Mart conspiracy, e.g. these stores are being closed because of multiple, simultaneous "plumbing problems"? To repair those plumbing problems, FEMA had portable guard towers strategically in the parking lots of some stores, complete with searchlights and acoustic assault speakers. Or the fact that the closings and modifications began during operation Jade Helm 15? Despite their unmistakable presence and coverage patterns, no viable or credible reasons have been given for them. Reasons that have been given are at variance from one another and seem to skirt the facts that these chemical and biological agents are demonstrably and extremely dangerous to the health of humans, animals and plants. The effects on animal life (fish, birds, perhaps the mysterious, drastic decline in the bee population, etc.) and agriculture have been nothing short of disastrous. Perhaps you have seen some of the photographs of thousands upon thousands of dead fish lining a coastline, or dead birds covering fields, roads, homes and yards. To me, this is an example of the military-industrial-government complex that we have been forewarned about repeatedly for decades operating at its best and most efficient with no interruptions, interference or objections from the people that this affects most profoundly – American citizens. I believe that, regardless of one's theological beliefs (and I am certainly no Biblical scholar), Scripture asks questions that seem particularly salient now: "Do you have ears, but do not hear; do you have eyes, but do not see?" In my field, we make a distinction between listening and looking (passive behaviors) and hearing and seeing (active behaviors, often requiring hard work). We have been warned repeatedly by several Presidents over the decades about this unholy alliance, however, for whatever reasons, we have failed to pay attention to these alerts, and we certainly failed, as citizens living in a Republic, to act on them. Now, we are seeing the consequences of our inattention and lack of involvement in our governments, and no one is more guilty than I.
So rather than being allowed to express our wills by means of the "Initiative" or the "Referendum" as provided by the Constitution on such significant issues as the construction of over 800 FEMA camps (some equipped with recently expanded crematoria), the conversion of closed military installations into detention centers, passage of the "Patriot Act" and the "National Defense Authorization Act", the formation of an out-of-control DHS and its purchase of over two-billion rounds of "hollow point" or anti-personnel ammunition (which, contrary to what DHS told us, is not for "target practice"), construction of underground, multi-level interstate highways which run from Denver International Airport to Washington, D.C. to Maine with multiple diverging routes between these points, a high-speed underground railroad and over one-hundred underground cities complete with ample, long-term supplies of food, water, medical supplies (even operating suites), etc., we passively allowed these things to come into being. We and our Congress were effectively by-passed or short-circuited by a President who unilaterally enacted a series of illegal "Executive Orders" (which no one questioned), a President who, in all likelihood, does not meet the criteria specified in our Constitution for someone to hold that office legally, a President who, when not self-constrained, exhibits unmistakable symptoms of megalomania. The ability of the people to be able to vote on these kinds of issues takes on additional importance when one considers that our elected representatives in Washington are no longer there to represent us or our best interests. My personal opinion is that they are motivated principally by greed for wealth and power.
If you are deluding yourself that writing letters to these "elected representatives" will, in any way, make a difference, please stop and apply your thinking, actions and words in more productive approaches. As a colleague once expressed it, "We are playing baseball; they are playing football". The effect, then, is that there is, in reality, no longer a "Republican" or a "Democratic" party. There is one party, and it is not accountable to the people. It operates entirely in concert with the stated goals of U.N. "Agenda 21" (or 25 or 30) and the illuminati's fundamental tenets which include a one-world government and religion (a/k/a "The New World Order"), and massive depopulation. Their fundamental "commandments" are inscribed on the vertical stone tablets placed in Georgia. Their goal calls for a world population that does not exceed 500,000,000 people. In order to achieve that goal, a reduction will be required in the current world population on the order of six billion human beings. The beginning point for this process of depopulation is the United States, followed quickly by Canada and Mexico to create the NWO's "North American Command Center". Hence, the observations of foreign military personnel at or near several of our military bases. Those foreign troops are not limited to Russian soldiers. They include U.N. "Peace Keeping" troops from several nations as well as military mercenaries (e.g. the "Blackwater Group") whom the CIA has used for years. These foreign soldiers have been training beside American military personnel in such areas as "riot control", inmate management and forcibly disarming Americans of weapons. They are here because, to Obama's chagrin, about 60% of American military personnel have indicated that they would honor their oaths, and not fire on American citizens if ordered to do so. Hence, the "forced retirement" of the largest number of senior military officers in our Nation's history. It is referred to as Obama's "litmus test". For them, that would constitute (and is) an unlawful order according to the Uniform Code of Military Justice which, if Martial Law is declared, will be modified, set aside or superseded as will the Constitution. At the same time, Obama is expected to deploy more American troops to foreign countries (e.g. Iraq). Meanwhile, these other non-American troops will be used to arrest and transport Americans to predesignated FEMA "resettlement" or "re-location" or "internment" camps and, depending on the American citizen's status as determined by DHS, incarcerated or executed. It is important to note that each of these FEMA camps is currently fully staffed and ready for operation despite the absence of detainees. You are probably aware of the hundreds of thousands of "casket liners" stored at various locations around the country – most, but not all, at military installations. Numbers reported vary from 500,000 to a million or more.
A major concern is that Obama, prior to the November elections, will declare a state of "Martial Law" on some fabricated pretext or false flag terrorist event – unless he can incite enough Americans to clash over racial, religious or other differences. Operation Jade Helm 15, which ran from July 15, 2015 through September 15, 2015, was not, as we were told, a "military exercise". It provided an opportunity to re-distribute military vehicles and ordnance across the Country, as well as to equip law enforcement agencies with "excess" military gear – weapons, ammunition, protective vests, armored personnel carriers and, in some cases, tanks. Perhaps you have seen one of the 2-3 mile long freight trains, consisting solely of 80' flat cars, fully loaded with APCs (armored personnel carriers), tanks, MRAPs (mine-resistant ambush protected) vehicles and even field artillery pieces.
I cannot stress strongly enough the importance of thinking, planning, preparing and behaving more aggressively (but still peacefully) in each of your own communities as opposed to writing to your "elected representatives". Someone once said, "The most dangerous item in your home is your recliner", to which I would add, your computer. Your thoughts, opinions and concerns are irrelevant to them. Their safety, and that of their families has been provided for underground. If you do not know your neighbors, make it a point to get to know them. For as long as they will work, create phone "call lists". A principle use of a call list is not only emergency communication, but the transfer of "intel" or intelligence on such things as the movements of enemy forces, the influx of armored vehicles, etc. As a long-time friend, an active duty Lt. Col. told me recently, "I cannot say much, but I will tell you that the fuse is very short". At this writing, my understanding from an active duty senior NCO is that Chinook (many of them black and unmarked, therefore FEMA) helicopters, C-130, Boeing 727, 737 and 747 fixed-wing aircraft are being fitted with wide-range radio jamming equipment. The purpose is to neutralize civilian cellular, survivalist or militia communications. Initially, Chinooks will be used to transport detained American citizens to nearby FEMA camps. If a detainee is to be held at a more distant FEMA camp location, he or she will be transported by one of the aforementioned aircraft. The senior NCO with whom I spoke did not know whether these jamming devices were being installed on other military vehicles, ships or base locations, however, given that the President has the authority to control the airwaves (all of them), it seems likely that taking away the ability for us to communicate would answer that question.
Until we learn otherwise, we have several communicative options currently at our disposal. Many of you remember the days when CB (Citizens Band) radios were popular, and some of you may still own one. Well, they are popular again. If you own one, you may wish to consider dusting it off, installing an antenna (preferably outdoor) and providing it with 12 volt D.C. power from a power supply, a boat or car battery or your solar power system. Channel 3 has been designated as the national CB emergency frequency. If your radio has single side-band capability, channel 36 LSB (lower side-band) is also available as an emergency frequency. Single side-band signals use a narrower slice of the radio spectrum, travel greater distances than other modes of communication, and are slightly less affected by man-made or naturally occurring noise.
Communications will be essential once the coming collapse commences.
In recent years, a relatively new radio service which uses hand-held, low power radios has become very popular among campers, boaters, hunters and others. These radio utilize the "Family Radio Service" or FRS. An FCC license is not required to use this service. These radios have a range, depending upon terrain, obstacles and weather, of about 2-6 miles (despite inordinate claims of greater ranges by manufacturers). As with CB frequencies or channels, channel 3 has been designated as an emergency or calling frequency for FRS radios. FRS radios share several frequencies or channels with another, older radio service, The General Mobile Radio Service or GMRS. These radios are a more powerful alternative as they are typically installed in vehicles. However, just as with CB radios, providing them with a 12 volt D.C. power source will allow them to work in any location. Their output power, and therefore their range, are greater than either CB or FRS radios and varies by model. Technically, a license is required to operate on GMRS frequencies, however, according to the FCC, an individual can operate on any frequency, with or without a license, in an emergency. The radios used by highway (and other) construction personnel (e.g. who rotate signs that read "Stop" or "Proceed with caution" (or whatever) use radios that operate in yet another unlicensed band or service, the Multi-Use Radio Service or MURS. These radios are available in five frequencies and do not require a license. Their range is greater than FRS radios, however they are more costly. As with CB and FRS radios, both GMRS and MURS radios use channel 3 and the primary calling frequency. FRS radios should have no less than 50 channels, some of which communicate with GMRS radios. An excellent portable, lightweight and durable radio manufactured in China by a company called Baofeng has become extremely popular across the United States. I have provided first responders who fight wild fires in California with these radios, and they have performed admirably. They produce either 5 watts (Baofeng UV-5R series) or 8 watts (Baofeng BF-F8HP series) of power. These are referred to as "dual-band" radios, not unlike traditional commercial "AM" and "FM" radios. Frequency range for both transmitting and receiving is very broad – from 136 to 174 MHz. (VHF or Very High Frequency) and from 400 to 520 MHz. (UHF or Ultra High Frequency). They also receive commercial FM radio stations. The MURS frequencies are either close to around 151 or 154 MHz., so these are covered by the Baofeng radios. FRS and GMRS frequencies, which fall in the 462 MHz. range, can communicate with these radios as well. They also receive all 10 NOAA weather frequencies. In many communities, they will receive local Public Safety transmissions (police, fire, EMS, state police, etc.). They are available from Amazon or on eBay. Shipping origin for some eBay sellers is China and requires considerably longer delivery time. Radios from Amazon, though a few dollars more, are shipped from within the United States. I strongly recommend purchasing at least one spare heavy-duty battery and an optional, longer Nagoya NA-771 antenna (greater length equals greater range). If you become active with radio communications,please educate yourself on "comsec" or communications security. Learn commonly used code words used in all radio communications, keep transmissions as brief as possible, never reveal any information pertaining to yourself or your location and try to verify with whom you are talking (e.g. using pre-determined passwords, etc.). As a matter of course, we use two-person teams – one as the radio operator, the other as a spotter or lookout. Both are armed.
The mainstay and bedrock of reliable, long-distance radio communication is amateur radio. Amateur radio operators and experimenters have contributed significantly to the body of knowledge surrounding electronic human audio and video communications for decades, and have earned many of their operating privileges from the FCC because of their efforts, particularly during major wars. Both amateur radio operators and the military use similar frequencies which is both an advantage (intel or gathering intelligence information) and a disadvantage (comsec or communications security e.g. monitoring). Amateur radio signals are capable of traveling all over the world, either by traditional ionospheric propagation or via amateur radio satellites. Because of their power capability (up to 1,500 watts) and the wide range of frequencies on which they can operate, only amateur radio stations participate in the emergency communications networks themselves. Just as there are ways to interfere with signal propagation (e.g. "jamming"), there are effective technique for circumventing jamming. Amateur radio operators communicate using conventional voice transmissions of various types (CW (Morse code), AM, FM, USB, LSB) or via computerized digital communications. These amateur stations are referred to as "net control" stations. Depending upon the current alert level, they are prepared to operate 24/7. Part of my initial goal was to make emergency communication available to as many Americans as possible. Fortunately, many amateur radios are able to transmit and receive all of the frequencies utilized by the various unlicensed services mentioned above: CB, FRS, GMRS and MURS. In an emergency, establishing contact with an amateur net control operator would be your first task, keeping in mind safety considerations such as location, brevity of transmissions, etc.
I cannot urge you strongly enough to educate yourselves now with current and accurate information regarding what the military-industrial-corporate complex is doing in and to our Country, your state, county and community for they have penetrated to those levels. You are already intimately aware of the incredibly deleterious effects that over-spraying our Country with tons of toxic and potentially toxic elemental, chemical and biological agents has done, and is doing. To me, as a teacher, therapist and researcher, only people who are truly psychiatrically disturbed could even contemplate, let alone carry out, these kinds of heinous, egregious crimes against his or her fellow Americans, let alone innocent people in other parts of the world. For years,I think we all believed that the Holocaust represented the epitome of cruelty and inhumanity. My concern is that, if allowed to proceed unchecked, the cost in terms of suffering and human lives during the creation of the New World Order will surpass the Holocaust many times over.
Of major concern to anyone involved in civil defense is the possible loss of mains power (120 or 240 volts A.C. house current) from our major power grids, and the horrendous ramifications that that would entail, particularly as far as nutrition is concerned. While people have petitioned Congress for years to "harden" our power grids as most major nations of the world have, they have consistently refused to do so. Whereas this process would have cost upwards of 500 million dollars ten years ago, today, it would cost approximately 50 billion dollars. And still, Congress has refused to take any action – on our behalf – to provide this additional protection not only to those of us who can fend for ourselves, but for those children and adults who are hospitalized, using medical appliances as part of their home health program, or our sick and elderly residents of long-term care facilities. At present, our understanding is that two electro-magnetic pulse (EMP) devices detonated at an altitude of 50 miles in the eastern and western portions of our Country would completely eliminate all electrical power in the United States. Furthermore, all unprotected electronic equipment, including on-board computers in vehicles and aircraft, would be destroyed. What follows, in terms of human behavior, you can imagine, particularly if your remember hurricane Katrina: looting, theft, and civilian casualties as food and water sources grew scarce and hunger and thirst increased. Some New Orleans law enforcement officers chose, instead of reporting to work, to loot stores, pharmacies and the abandoned (or occupied) homes of flood victims. As an aside, amateur radio operators provided communications for Coast Guard and other agencies who, for whatever reasons, were unable to communicate with each other. This could be monitored by most amateur radio operators across the Country.
While Obama is merely a puppet of the so-called "elites" or the "illuminati", he is not a benign puppet. He has demonstrated his lust for absolute power over all Americans, and his ability to be dishonest in the tradition of George Bush, Jr. who told us repeatedly about Saddam Hussein's hidden cache of "weapons of mass destruction", of which none were ever found or Bill Clinton's adamant denials of having any involvement with Monica Lewinsky. American Presidents, Cabinet Members and Congressmen lying to Americans has become something of an American political tradition. In my estimation, we have lots of politicians, but very few, if any statesmen or statespeople.
The "political parties" are simply two sides of the same power structure.
Instead of living in fear from day to day of imminent monetary collapse, the illegal declaration of Martial Law, a second Civil War or a third world war, fear of being detained indefinitely in a FEMA camp or, if your name appears on a DHS "Red List" or "Blue List", being "neutralized", why are so many Americans seemingly afraid to assume their proper roles as citizens of the United States who are accountable only to their Creator and to whom all government employees (a/k/a/ public servants) are accountable? We have the God-given authority to put an end to all of this if only we will act. That means setting aside petty differences, discarding selfishness and coming together as one group with one very important common cause: the saving of a Nation. The late Dr. Samuel Hayakawa (linguist, general semanticist English professor Emeritus, President of San Francisco State College and U.S. Senator to California) wrote: "A difference, in order to be a difference, has to make a difference". Are the "differences" that separate and divide us as a people really differences? For example, compared to the challenges we now face, and those that have been promised to us, exactly how much difference, in practical, realistic terms, do the color of a person's skin, his or her ancestry, one's religious beliefs or the manner in which they wear their hair really make? I believe that, if we could eliminate these relatively insignificant differences, be more cooperative, serve without necessarily being the "commander", etc., the United States that would emerge would truly be a great nation – not necessarily in terms of financial or military strength, but as a wonderful place in which "…to live and love and grow" (to borrow from my undergraduate school's Alma Mater).
Several elegant University studies have shown that, throughout the course of civilization, whenever as few as 3.5% (or 5% according to another study) of the population came together and, acting together with purpose and determination, demanded the dissolution of a corrupt government, they were successful 100% of the time. For example, in more recent history, the citizens of Egypt did this not once, but twice. They converged on Cairo and demanded the ouster of all corrupt governmental officials – and they succeeded. It took them two tries, but they eventually succeed. You've probably heard of the patriotic group called the Oath Keepers. This group consists primarily of military veterans, law enforcement officers and others who have sworn an oath before the Almighty which states, in part, "…I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservations or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the office upon which I am about to enter; So help me God". There is no expiration date. You may be familiar with another "sister" organization of the "Oath Keepers" called the "Three Percenters". Their name derives from the fact that, during the Revolutionary War, only about 3% of the colonists were willing to go up against the greatest military power in the world. The other 97% went about their daily lives, drank ale and watched to see who would win. When it was announced that America had won her independence from Great Britain, suddenly the numbers of "patriots" swelled exponentially. So an historical fact is supported by several well-designed and well-executed University studies, and vice versa. By now, almost everyone is familiar with the expression, "Freedom is not free", and it is not. One visit to Arlington or any other national cemetery or veterans memorials will bear this out. I am not advocating violence or a second civil war. However, it takes two parties to reach that decision. I hope and pray that we are wrong when we say that "most Americans are asleep", i.e., they are unaware of the realities that surround and affect them, some profoundly. And I cannot bear to think that our nation's current population lacks the courage, selflessness and determination to fight to preserve a Nation that we profess to love. Recall that there is no other nation on earth that has a Constitution and a Bill of Rights such as ours nor the freedoms that we, until recently, have enjoyed. To me, there is no alternative available to us. I will not disavow my faith, I will not break my oath. At the same time, I have no illusions about the fact that, if we cherish what we have, and will not live under tyranny or forego our own personal religious beliefs in favor of worshiping Lucifer, then there may be no alternative to an armed confrontation. That concerns me deeply, but it does not paralyze me. I've been there before. While serving in Vietnam, I freely admit that I was scared most of the time, both for my own safety and that of my men. I'm sure the same was true of my troops. However, we did not allow that fear to immobilize us, mentally or physically. We followed orders, did what seemed appropriate to do and covered each others backside. We were not heroes. The Soldiers, Marines, Sailors and Airmen who fell, were captured or were designated as MIA were the true heroes. This is not about me or my lovely wife, our daughter and son-in-law and a brand new grandson. This is not even about my home state or the United States of America. This is about an unbelievably evil scheme to create a New World Order, the same phrase used by Adolf Hitler in "Mein Kampf". So, historically that idea and that phrase are not new. Right at this time, all but 132 countries have pledged their allegiance to the NWO. Putin claims to remain independent of the NWO, however has has conspired with Obama to place his "special forces" and other foreign troops at American military bases for the express purpose of forcibly collecting, transporting and confining (if not executing) American citizens. If history repeats itself, it is only a matter of time before those 132 small countries that currently wish to remain apart from the NWO does not decrease with time.
Some reasonable objectives might include the removal of the Obamas from our White House, removal of all senators and representatives from Congress, placing a term limit of one term on all elected officials (i.e. no "career politicians), locking and, if necessary, guarding entrances to their buildings and offices. The same would apply to our "bought and paid for" justices of the federal court system starting with the Supreme Court, revamping a grossly unjust criminal justice system (in which private companies have contracted with federal and state governments to provide guards and other prison personnel). At the same time, these "prison personnel providers" lobby legislators conscientiously to enact more and more stringent laws in order to incarcerate more Americans which, of course, establishes the need to construct additional prisons, a project that I think Vice-President Cheney and Halliburton would be more than glad to undertake, complete with their inflated billing to the government. After all, Halliburton built or re-vamped all of the over 800 FEMA detention centers. In some cases, legislators allow lobbyists to actually write the bills or acts that "our" elected legislators and representatives are paid to write. All they do is vote on them likely with their passage a foregone conclusion. Again, removal of several infamous "alphabet agencies" starting with DHS followed closely by the NSA would seem appropriate. The process will not be as uncomplicated as it was in 1776. That does not mean that, as a group of Americans with a common purpose and common goals, we cannot accomplish what we set our hearts and minds to do.
At the same time, elimination of the out-of-control "3 letter" agencies would seem altogether appropriate, including dismantling the NSA and, if the people feel it is needed, revamping the CIA. It is, or should be, a well known fact that every state and federal representative and senator is, in fact, a corporation thanks to the efforts of armies of attorneys. Judges and prosecuting attorneys exist principally to convict private citizens while exonerating corporations for illegal activities. Most police officers are minions of the judges and prosecuting attorneys. All of these people are bonded, a fact which is held in strict confidence for obvious reasons. If, for example, a police officer loses his or her bond for misconduct, not adhering to his or her oath, etc., he or she will never work in law enforcement again because in order to do that, one must be bonded. Following "house-cleaning" at both federal and state levels, authentic special elections could be scheduled in which the popular vote is the only vote that determines the outcomes. No "delegates" and no "super-delegates" or other groups to obfuscate the true results of the popular vote.
President Eisenhower's stern warnings of the military/industrial complex have been completely ignored by American citizens.
As early as the 1950s, President Eisenhower warned Americans of the potential dangers of what he termed the "military-industrial" complex.
Not long before his assassination, President Kennedy issued a similar warning about the "government-military-industrial" complex, and the dangers of secret societies in relation to government. At the time of President Kennedy's death, lots of theories were expressed: it was the mafia, the Cubans, etc. Now, in light of what is, and has been going on in America for decades, I no longer believe that any of those theiries is accurate. Today, we can name several of these "secret societies": the "Skull and Bones" fraternity for male college seniors at Yale University, the Bilderberg Group, the Illuminati, the "elites", etc.). By not remaining active in local, state and federal politics and government through preoccupation with education, work, raising a family, computers and computer games, Netflix and the pursuit of other pleasures, we have unintentionally handed over the reins of government to individuals who were only too glad to take them. It is, to me, understandable that the pursuit of hobbies, interests and other things that give pleasure is natural living in a free society. However, I think we neglected one very important and necessary activity. What we failed to realize was (1) somewhere in that list of daily activities, we should have made time for and included attendance at city council or county board of commissioners' meetings, and (2) the reins we were handing over were those given to us originally by our Nation's founding fathers. Thousands upon thousands of mostly young men, with the vast majority with their lives before them, shed their blood, suffered in unimaginable ways, returned home with mental and/or physical handicaps or died in the field trusting that they were dying for a nation worthy of their sacrifices. As both a former Vietnam combat veteran and a therapist and consultant in rehabilitation at several V.A. medical centers, I have some idea of what I am writing about. Many of these young men had never known a woman, never completed their educations, never experienced the joys of marriage or parenthood, never achieved the high point of their careers. They took no vacations, and they enjoyed no retirement years. And we continue to send our young men and women to foreign lands to be wounded or killed when, in actuality, we have no good reason to either have a military presence in that country, interfere with its customs, traditions or religion or jeopardize the safety of our men and women. To me, this is political gamesmanship of the worst order: gambling with human lives. The sad truth is, we did not uphold our part of the bargain; we let our wounded and killed troops down and, unless we act swiftly and decisively, they will all have suffered and died in vein. If you have ever seen the monument to all Marines in Arlington, Virginia serving as a constant reminder of their perseverance and bravery in Iwo Jima located near the back entrance to Arlington National Cemetery or visited the Cemetery and the monuments that honor fallen soldiers from WW-I, WW-II and Vietnam, I feel certain you understand what I am talking about. If those are just monuments to you, I think you should ask yourself exactly what it is you mean by the word "just".
Behavioral scientists (psychologists, psychiatrists, social psychologists, etc.) tend to agree that approximately 14% of the American population suffer from mental disorders that, while lacking in obvious, unusual or overt symptoms, compel them nonetheless to secretly gravitate toward positions of power and authority over others. How many positions in governments at all levels, from the "cop on the beat" to the POTUS can you think of who could easily fit into this category? Today, we are certainly seeing it in law enforcement circles with the unprecedented number of murders of children, teens and adults by those who have sworn to "protect and defend" us, and sworn an oath to uphold the Constitution when effective, non-lethal means of arrest or apprehension were not, but could have been, used. In many cases, these victims are unarmed. Somehow, these officers are receiving the message, overtly or tacitly, that it is alright to shoot defenseless Americans with little or no provocation or justification. Often, officers involved in these tragic contacts fabricate untruths to avoid punishment. The murder of 19 year-old Zachary Hammond in South Caroline several months ago, along with others, provides an excellent case in point. When will we reach the point at which we agree that, not only Black lives matter, but that all lives matter?
I thought it was interesting to view a videotape provided by a life-long friend, a young attorney turned FBI agent. He eventually served as the SAC or Special Agent in Charge of the southeast region. He reminded me (again): "Never speak with police without your attorney present, no matter how friendly they may seem. Their job is to put you away. If you say you left a restaurant at "about 9:00 p.m." and you were seen leaving at 9:20 p.m., then you have just been caught in a lie. Lying to a federal officer is, in itself, a federal offense. He reminded me of the first sentence of the Miranda Rights: "You have the right to remain silent". An interesting example of police "overreach" took place in this mall where three adult customers were talking. A young "mall cop" approached them. He appeared to be about 19 or 20 years old. His unusually large abdomen protruded over his belt and trousers. No doubt flexing his muscles, he told the group of adults that they would have to disperse, or he would call the police on them. The looks on the faces of the adults were those of incredulity. The mall cop asked them what they were talking about. As it turned out, they attended the same church and were discussing church related matters. The foolish, naive mall cop obviously could not think of anything to say, so he asked, "Do you go to Sunday School every Sunday?" In actuality, this mall cop had no probable cause and no expectation that these people had committed a crime. Even if he had full legal authority, he would have been unable to detain them. As a final parting shot, the young would-be cop told the group that, if they did not leave, he would call the police (calling in back up for a major crime, I suppose, like on television). The people did not leave, and the mall cop eventually drifted away. One of the 14%ers?
As the Lt. Col. mentioned above stated, "…the fuse is very short". Time is clearly not on our side. I hope you will find an area in which you feel that you can be most effective in changing what appears to be an unwavering period of history for America – for her citizens, patriots, veterans, patriotic law enforcement officers and military personnel and, perhaps most importantly of all, our children, grandchildren and all future generations of Americans.
The majority have, unfortunately, never attempted to investigate what really happened on 9/11/01
Beginning with the travesty of 9/11 which many, including myself, believe did not involve passenger aircraft and were not perpetrated by "foreign terrorists" (I recognize the right-hand underside of the fuselage of an American military aircraft when I see one) a series of events have occurred in our Country by our President and other heads of federal agencies to use a "bait and switch" technique on all of us. We were told, initially, that all of the dramatic measures that were being taken were for "our protection" from foreign terrorist attacks. While not an historian, I know a little about Adolf Hitler and Germany in the 1930s. The creation of DHS frightened me – literally. To me, it reminded me of the infamous Nazi "brown shirts" who then, after "the night of the long knives", became the "black shirts" and ultimately Heinrich Himmler's infamous Schutzstaffel or SS and Gestapo. DHS was another layer of "protection and control" which we were not asked to vote on and even when there seemed to be no legitimate need for it, it suddenly appeared – and no one questioned it, or demanded to know how or why it was created. Now, of course, we know. DHS quickly became involved in a whole lot more than providing protection from terrorists. Soon, a new DHS agency, the Federal Protection Service appeared on the scene. Then our airports became filled with TSA (DHS) personnel. If you look at a federal organization chart, you will notice immediately that DHS has purview over the FBI, DEA, BATFE, FCC and a host of other federal agencies. DHS has even written new rules and regulations which are supposed to govern how amateur radio emergency communications can function, but which cannot be followed because of their author's ignorance of radio communications. We do not need the superfluous, duplicitous DHS, but we have it. FEMA, a subdivision of DHS, has responsibility for control of American citizens in the (likely) event that Martial Law is declared. Then came the "Patriot Act" followed not long after by the "National Defense Authorization Act". If you read them, these "acts", advertised as steps to protect us from foreign terrorists, do nothing of the kind. What they do is widen the net of people who can be considered or suspected of being terrorists. More than that, they revoked fundamental rights that made America what it is, rights guaranteed under the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. So now, we the people, are the terrorists – domestic terrorists. We are "domestic terrorists" in the eyes of Obama and his minions, the illuminati, the U.N. and the New World Order. Even though we have committed no crimes, we are to be arrested, detained indefinitely at a FEMA camp and, depending upon which list our name appears, either re-educated or executed. Even a blind person can see that Obama, et al. are slowly but surely chipping away at our Constitution and Bill of Rights. To these people, these documents and, more importantly, the ideas that they contain, are a major threat to the NWO and must be destroyed.
In the military, each individual is assigned a job, called an "MOS" (military occupational specialty). The U.S. Army has recently started advertising to recruit individuals to fill a new MOS: 31E. This MOS is described as an "internment/re-settlement specialist". You may be interested in perusing a couple of Army training manuals that were leaked about a year ago. They're available on the internet. They are 3-19-40 and 3-39-40. The first is written for Military Police; the second for detention center personnel. Note the dates of publication on both of these manuals. Manual 3-39-40 discusses the classification of detainees. Physicians and clergymen or women will receive somewhat preferential treatment compared to the rest of the detainees. However, "preaching" or "teaching" by ministers or rabbis will not be permitted. All will be expected to work without pay.
Citizens of the United States have so far largely ignored their own government's preparations for total collapse.
DHS has purchased and/or ordered nearly two billion rounds of ammunition. The DHS' story is that these cartridges are for "target practice". The only problem with that little untruth is that the ammunition they have purchased uses a special kind of bullet (the part that leaves the gun). It is known as a "hollow point". Hollow point bullets have an opening in the center of the top of the bullet. It's purpose is to allow the bullet to expand upon contact with tissue, muscle, bone, etc. This not only increases wound size, but it increases hemorrhaging at the wound site as well. "Hollow point" bullets are not used for "target practice". These are unquestionably anti-personnel bullets designed with the intent to kill. These are not new. They are still not permitted under the terms of the Geneva convention. Target ammunition is much less expensive. It typically has a round or slightly pointed, solid surface. To punch a clean hole in a paper target, a variation of a target bullet involves one that has a smaller diameter, blunt tip with a small flange that runs around the circumference of the bullet about half way down it's length. The idea is that as this bullet passes through a paper target, it acts much like a paper punch and cuts a clean, round hole to facilitate accurate scoring. These target bullets are referred to as "wad cutters" or "semi-wad cutters". This information, coupled with the fact that DHS is supplying guns and ammunition to the Postal Service, Social Security offices, IRS offices and other federal agency offices frequented by the public suggests a more sinister purpose for the purchase of "hollow point" bullets beside "target practice". This is enough ammunition to kill every American man, woman and child 6 times. Most of us, whether we fly or not, are becoming increasingly aware of the change in the attitude and aggressiveness of DHS' TSA agents as they view and "pat down" passengers. According to one report from another federal investigative agency, the names of 82 DHS employees were identified on their own "no fly" list of suspected terrorists. How is that for accurate and effective vetting?

The meteorological tampering being effected by our military is but one portion of a much larger plan in which most Americans are not expected to survive. Because of its cost effectiveness, leaders at the U.N. and the "New World Order" have decided that the use of deadly biological agents and starvation are the two most cost effective approaches to depopulation. You may be familiar with the results of studies by various Universities and medical schools with respect to the "medicines" used in commonly administered "flu" shots. One component that I recall is mercury. Ask you favorite neurosurgeon or neurologist about the effects of (1) the contents of "chemtrails" and (2) mercury on the brain, particularly the developing brain, and nervous system. I would also encourage you to learn about the elemental, chemical and biological contents of the tons of material that have been blanketing our Country for several years. I promise you it will be an "eye opener".

Those in power are using every tool at their disposal to marginalize the dire issue of climate engineering. The mainstream media puppets (the power structure controls) are being used as a tool to try and marginalize any that dare to speak of climate engineering. How do we win this game of chess? By standing on credible conclusions built on verifiable facts.

What harms our efforts to credibly and effectively expose climate engineering? False conclusions based on false headlines put out by those who either don't have any understanding of current front-line realities, or who don't care because they are pursuing other agendas.
Below are a few of the completely false narratives recently pushed by some who claim to be against climate engineering, but who are actually harming the effort by destroying credibility. Why are some helping the geoengineers to sell geoengineering? The criminal cabal that is completely committed to hiding climate engineering is also just as committed to hiding the climate disintegration. Below each completely false narrative are the verifiable front-line facts. The bottom line is this, the planet is warming at an astounding pace, climate engineering can create short term toxic cool-downs at the cost of a worsened overall warming.
False: "Global warming stopped 20 years ago"
False: "The planet has been cooling for the last 6 or 7 years"
False: "Arctic ice is expanding "
False: "Polar bear populations are up 500%"
False: "Ice is growing in Greenland"
False: "Antarctic ice cap is expanding"
False: "Ice is always increasing and melting" (implying that the rapid ice melt is not from anthropogenic activity)
False: "snow in the Caribbean" (implying this proves global cooling and not a result of climate engineering and chemical ice nucleation patented processes)
False: "The sun is the only thing that effects the weather"
False: "The increasing speed of the pole shift has nothing to do with global warming/human activity" (which includes geoengineering/climate engineering)
False: "Sea levels are not rising"
The most recent and most comprehensive study yet done on the cause of the current warming shows a "90-100% agreement" that it is anthropogenic (human caused, which again, includes geoengineering). But what about the 30,000 scientists that said global warming isn't so? Easily debunked, as is every bit of the "global warming is a hoax" military industrial complex false narrative. What about the Paris climate conference, didn't some of the scientists there dispute global warming? A handful did, every one of them connected to the military/industrial/hydrocarbon complex. In fact, there is a long list of professional disinformation actors doing their best to cloud the truth about the unfolding planetary meltdown. What are the odds of the current warming not being a natural cycle and not anthropogenic in nature? New studies conclude with 99.999% certainty that the current warming is due to human activity (which of course includes climate engineering). For those who wish to remain in denial about the true state of the climate and the biosphere, articles with opposing viewpoints can always be found. For those that want reality, honest investigation must be carried out. The internationally award winning documentary film "Chasing Ice" contains front-line film footage that ends all confusion and argument for any that are truly doing objective investigation. Those that truly care about effectively fighting to expose and halt climate engineering must make the time to check their facts. The planet is spiraling into total meltdown and global climate engineering is helping to fuel the overall fire while simultaneously contaminating the the entire planet. The shocking short term chemically nucleated cool-downs (like the recent snow in the Caribbean) are absolutely the result of climate engineering and chemical ice nucleation. Pretending or claiming such engineered events are "normal" or "natural" only harms the critical effort to expose and halt climate engineering. To recite the false conclusions already listed is simply toeing the line for big oil and the geoengineers.
How bad is the unfolding reality that we will all face?
In a civilization gone mad with delusions of grandeur, we’re left with tatters of human sociability held together by rancid mythologies.
Despite human fossil fuel burning recently reported to be “flat”, CO2 levels have been on a tear for the last six months, reaching new worrying levels which have some wondering whether permafrost melt may be contributing to the unusually high spike if no decline happens soon. The giant holes in Siberia serve as an ominous sign. Considering that the current El Niño is contributing only 10% to what we are now seeing, runaway global warming may be accelerating worldwide. But don’t worry, Warren Buffett says climate change is no more of a problem than the Y2K bug and will be profitable through increased premiums and inflation.
Ever dire studies continue to reaffirm worst case scenarios, making clear to anyone paying attention that Earth in the next century will be unrecognizable from its current state. Basic planetary geography and atmospheric conditions will be altered through warming oceans and rising sea levels which are now increasing faster than at any time in the past 2800 years. On average, sea levels were between 50 and 82 feet higher the last time CO2 levels were at 400ppm. Glaciologist Jason Box expects ice melt from the West Antarctic to become the biggest contributor to sea level rise in the coming decades due to a feedback loop not in the climate models. CO2 levels have been increasing around 3ppm per year, a twentyfold increase since pre-industrial times when the highest recorded increase was 0.15 ppm per year. We’ve long since passed the tipping point of melting Arctic summer sea ice; 300-350 ppm of CO2 was the threshold for many parts of the climate. These changes are irreversible on a timescale of human civilizations. Even if all human industrial activity magically ceased today, the footprint man has already left will be felt for eons.
In our warming world, the hydrologic cycle is changing and creating extreme weather; crop-destroying droughts and floods are becoming more frequent. The Jet Stream is transforming into something different, becoming wavier with higher ridges and troughs prone to stagnating in the same region. As global temperatures rise over time, hotter air will be trapped under these layers of high pressure from a mangled Jet Stream, cooking everything to death. Rising winter temperatures are beginning to destroy the “winter chill”needed for many fruit and nut trees to properly blossom and produce maximally. Climate change is also disrupting flower pollination and pushing fish toward North/South poles, robbing poorer countries at Equator of crucial food resources. In a new study, marine scientists are surprised to find a disturbing trend in the increasing numbers of a specific type of phytoplankton, coccolithophores, which have been “typically more abundant during Earth’s warm interglacial and high CO2 periods.”
Homo sapiens have only been on the planet for the equivalent of a few seconds in geologic time but have managed to overwhelm and foul up all of earth’s natural processes and interdependencies, leaving a distinct layer in the sedimentary record. There is nothing modern humans do that is truly sustainable. Here are a few glaring examples:
- Techno-fixes are built into the IPCC’s projections for maintaining a habitable planet for humans.
- Money megacities spend for adapting to climate change linked more to protect valuable capital than vulnerable people (Capitalism is doing an outstanding job of converting the planet into dead dollars.)
- Nuclear Power: “Even if there were no issues like meltdown or waste proliferation, the cost and time for planning, permitting, and constructing nuclear plants is prohibitive. The Arctic ice will already be gone.
- Japan prime minister: We came within a “paper-thin margin” of nuclear disaster and the evacuation of 50 million people in 2011
- Germany’s carbon dioxide emissions increased by an estimated 10 million tonnes from 2014 to 2015, in a blow to the country’s claims to climate leadership.
- New study published in the journal Environmental Pollution shows that urban soil can emit up to 72% as much CO2 as fossil fuels burned within a city and at a rate of up to twice that of rural soils.
- 90% of Indigenous in Brazil’s Amazon Suffer Mercury Poisoning: A new study shows that water and food sources for 19 Indigenous communities have been massively affected by illegal mining.
- Satellite images suggest tropical forests from the Amazon to the Philippines are disappearing at a far more rapid pace than previously thought, a University of Maryland team of forest researchers say.
- African elephants ‘killed faster than they are being born’
- Desertification in China is a major problem for Beijing, as the country’s deserts are growing, threatening environmental, economic, and political stability.
- The environment is now being destroyed by corporations in the name of green growth. Sham greenwashing projects are created, funded, and enforced by the IMF and World Bank.
- Unknown continental-scale process is dumping phosphorus into streams and lakes across the U.S.
- According to a new study, efforts to curtail world temps will almost surely fail: “A person living today uses about four times as much energy as a person did in the early 1900s.”
- Greenpeace says China increasing coal-fired capacity: “There is a very rapid and accelerating net increase in coal-fired generating capacity”
- UN envoy warns of environmental activist murder ‘epidemic’
- Remember this headline from 2013?: Arctic methane release could cost economy $60 trillion -study. Our response was to go on a fracking binge which increased our methane emissions by some 30%.
- While the resource intensity of GDP may be falling (less resources needed to produce 1$ worth of goods/services), the absolute decoupling of resource use, emissions, pollution, etc from GDP growth is the only thing that matters and that is not happening. If the world’s population continues to grow as projected and current lifestyles do not change, global resource consumption will increase anywhere from 2 to 5 times by 2050. It defies logic that a continually growing economy would be able to reduce its resource intensity down to near-zero to achieve a sustainable ecological footprint.
- According to recent research, even if we converted 100% of farmland to reforestation projects it would only lower temperatures 0.45C by the end of the century. Converting half of global farmland to reforestation would result in just a 0.25C drop. Other recent studies have come to the same conclusion:
Relying on machines for answers to the existential problems of a species run amok with planet-destroying tools and weaponry is rather ironic and tragic. We’re locked-up inside a complexity trap of our own making. The human propensity for tool-building coupled with our discovery of fossil fuels has created a set of living arrangements in which we are now enslaved to those machines and tools. The globalized capitalist economy externalizes its destruction and atrocities, keeping the masses in a state of ignorance and denial. Our corporate overlords are not conscientious citizens, but mindless organizations whose sole purpose is to grow profits no matter the external damage done to society and the environment. Between the economic oil hitmen who ensure that profits flow smoothly and GOP politicians who openly espouse their science illiteracy, a hospitable climate for future humans seems remote. Hopeful delusions have given way to the stark reality of our predicament as scholars like Noam Chomsky who originally started his career fighting for a modicum of social justice have now set the bar at just the chance of human survival. Despite the best efforts of scientists, environmentalists, and activists, the wealthy countries most able to do something won’t “get it” until famine, disease, and war come to their country. All is being left for the almighty ‘free market’ to sort out at the same time that climate change, a conflict multiplier, ramps up.
Ideology, preconception, and desired beliefs do not help with the effort to expose the truth and end confusion. Such traits only add to the difficulty of gaining desperately needed credibility and bridge building with the climate science and environmental communities (that have so far been unwilling to join the ranks of the anti-geoengineering movement). If we are to have any chance of prevailing in the fight to expose and halt climate engineering, reality must be faced on all sides of the fence. The Global Warming communities must face and acknowledge climate engineering (and the planetary cataclysm it is contributing to). The anti-geoengineering community needs to face and acknowledge the rapidly unfolding planetary meltdown (made far worse by climate engineering). Only when both sides fully open their eyes, can the needed critical mass of climate engineering awareness be reached. Those that truly care about this most critical battle will take the time to do real investigation and then stand on hard facts. False headlines and completely incorrect ideological rants from any source must be recognized for what they are, wrong. We must all make our voices heard while we can, exposing and halting climate engineering is the great imperative of our time.
Australia's Great Barrier Reef is one of the "7 wonders of the world", nearly half of it is expected to die in the next month. Why? The 2 minute video below is a breaking news update from the front lines.
The oceans are superheating, along with the rest of the planet. If the oceans die, we die. Recent studies indicate that half of the barrier reef has already been lost in the previous 3 decades. Now, in the next 30 days, half of what is left will be lost. Some want to primarily blame Fukushima for the dying seas, but there is much more to the equation. In the early 90s I participated in 2 private extended dive excursions on the Barrier reef, such a loss is unimaginable to me. Is anthropogenic (human) activity to blame for the explosion of environmental cataclysms on our planet? With absolute mathematical certainty the answer is YES. The human race and the military industrial complex has decimated the planet in countless ways, the ongoing climate engineering insanity is at the top of the list of destruction. The toxic heavy metal fall out from climate engineering is further fueling the global die off. The destruction of the ozone layer (most directly linked to the ongoing geoengineering assault) is also a massive contributing factor in regard to coral bleaching and the global die-off in general.
Earth and its life support systems are in virtual collapse, and even now the vast majority of populations are completely oblivious to what is unfolding around them at absolutely blinding speed. Even now there are countless groups, organizations, and individuals that are still clinging to carefully crafted power structure propaganda and lies of "global cooling", "global warming is a hoax", or "we can't tell if the planet is warming or cooling". How can there be such an incomprehensible disconnect? Because the majority are still tragically choosing to form their conclusions from ideology and not front line facts. Because the majority choose not do do any objective research from credible and verifiable sources on an ongoing basis. The chasm of willful confusion is vast and there is plenty of blame to go around. The environmental/climate science/global warming communities and groups are immersed in inexcusable denial in regard to the geoengineering/solar radiation management atrocities in our skies. How can there be any legitimate discussion of the climate without even mentioning the single largest climate disrupting and damaging factor of all, geoengineering/weather warfare, and SRM programs? Answer? There can't be. On the other side of the fence there are many who recognize the reality of climate engineering, but unfortunately are in total denial in regard to the unfolding planetary meltdown (that is being made exponentially worse overall by climate intervention programs). The weather makers can create large scale short term chemical cool-downs at the cost of a worsened overall warming. Arctic ice is yet again at record breaking low levels as the ongoing atmospheric spraying continues. Antarctica is also in trouble. The 2 minute video below makes inarguably clear that geoengineering/solar radiation management programs are reality.
Industrialized/militarized civilization is destroying the planet and any chance of a future for any of us. Global geoengineering programs are the absolute epitome of this destruction. If we are to have any chance whatsoever of altering the current course of certain near term total extinction on our planet we must start marching in the same direction. If we are to have any chance of turning the current tide in time to salvage any part of Earth's life support systems, the fight for life must be our top priority. Exposing and halting the climate engineering insanity is the greatest single leap forward we could collectively make. Reaching a critical mass of awareness with the public on the climate engineering issue is the only way forward. There is no silver bullet solution, no magic petition, no political remedy. Exposing and halting the tidal wave of insanity is up to us, each of us, all of us. Those who claim to truly love their children have an absolute obligation to help in the battle to sound the alarm each and every day. Those who claim to care about the fate of the world need to take action now, not later, the sand in the hourglass is nearly gone. Who will join us in this imperative fight for the greater good? Who will help us to credibly and effective expose global geoengineering? The single greatest assault ever launched against the web of life by the human race. Make your voice heard while you can.
Man's war with nature is ultimately a war against himself. How many "interventions gone wrong" will have to occur before the lesson is finally learned by the human race? Should it come as a surprise that attempting to "fertilize the oceans" with industrial waste can only do immense and irreparable harm?
Massive aerosol spraying over Earth's oceans has been carried out for decades as part of the ongoing solar radiation management programs. Some of the elements being dispersed are also likely intended to stimulate "ocean fertilization".
The arrogance and insanity of industrialized society's propensity to interfere with nature is truly incomprehensible. The total ambivalence of the general population in regard to the mass destruction of the biosphere (being inflicted by anthropogenic activity and the military/industrial complex) is alarming and perplexing. What does it mean to be a "scientist" in a modern society of those who seek perpetual expansion on a finite world with finite resources? Unfortunately, in so many cases it means you try to find some way to justify the actions that your paymasters wish to implement. Finally, some of the insanity is being exposed. The excerpt below taken from a recent report is yet another glaring red flag that reflects the total folly of man's attempt to manipulate the planet's life support systems.
Scientists plumbing the depths of the central equatorial Pacific Ocean have found ancient sediments suggesting that one proposed way to mitigate climate warming—fertilizing the oceans with iron to produce more carbon-eating algae—may not necessarily work as envisioned.
Plants need trace amounts of iron to perform photosynthesis, but certain parts of the oceans lack it, and thus algae are scarce. Recent shipboard experiments have shown that when researchers dump iron particles into such areas, it can boost growth. The algae draw the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide from the air to help build their bodies, so fertilization on a large scale could, theoretically, reduce atmospheric CO2. Seafloor sediments show that during past ice ages, more iron-rich dust blew from chilly, barren landmasses into the oceans, apparently producing more algae in these areas and, presumably, a natural cooling effect. Some scientists believe that iron fertilization and a corresponding drop in CO2 is one reason why ice ages become icy and remain so.
This file illustration photo, obtained from NASA, shows a massive phytoplankton bloom, as seen from a satellite. Organizers of a controversial ocean fertilization project off Canada's west coast said officials knew of the undertaking but did not stop it, and that it violated no laws.
But the researchers in the new study say that increased algae growth in one area can inhibit growth elsewhere. This is because ocean waters are always on the move, and algae also need other nutrients, such as nitrates and phosphates. Given heavy doses of iron, algae in one region may suck up all those other nutrients; by the time the water circulates elsewhere, it has little more to offer, and adding iron doesn’t do anything. The study appears today in the leading journal Nature.
“There’s only a limited amount of total nutrients in the oceans. So if there’s greater use in one area, it seems you’d have lesser concentrations in other areas,” said lead author Kassandra Costa, a doctoral student at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory who led the analysis. “The basic message is, if you add to one place, you may subtract from another.”
Our oceans are super heating, acidifying, and dying at an astounding pace. Though there are countless anthropogenic causes, various forms of geoengineering (solar radiation management, marine layer albedo enhancement, ocean fertilization, etc.) are a major part of the equation in regard to causal factors. We are rapidly spiraling toward the "Canfield ocean" condition associated with mass extinction events in Earth's history. This time around the human race is holding the smoking gun as the planet is now warming 50 times faster than it should when coming our of an ice age. If the oceans die, we die. In spite of the fatal flaws of "ocean fertilization", our government has pushed this practice as a form of global warming mitigation (geoengineering). Will we continue to stand by and allow the power structure and the military industrial complex to conduct experiments of insanity on what is yet left of Earth's life support systems? Or will we make exposing and halting the ongoing geoengineering insanity our absolute top priority? The sand in the hourglass is rapidly running out, we must all make every day count in this critical battle.
The propensity of the human race to deny unpleasant and frightening realities until the last possible moment is truly profound. The power structure (and the mainstream media they control) are using every imaginable means at their disposal to fuel the constant distraction of the masses. The current facade is disintegrating on every front and even now the vast majority are completely oblivious to what is unfolding. As the horizon grows ever darker, we must all examine our priorities. What can we yet accomplish at this late hour that would have the most impact toward the greater good? Combining our efforts to expose and halt climate engineering would be the greatest leap we could collectively make in the right direction. The ongoing global atmospheric assault has already horrifically affected every living organism. This being said, there are also countless other aspects of the reality we have all known which are unraveling by the day. The report below directly addresses dire issues which the powers that be are doing their best to hide from public view. Get educated and help to sound the alarm, every one of our voices is essential in the fight for the greater good.
When a society has been very successfully polarized by decades of carefully crafted propaganda, beliefs and wishful thinking can (and all too often do) take the place of actual investigation and fact based conclusions. Belief systems and biases can become so powerful that they completely override and block out evident and readily verifiable realities. The "coming ice age" false narrative is an epic example of blatant disinformation that has been pushed by special interest groups with an agenda of creating division and confusion within the population. Confusion and division in regard to the true state of the climate is exactly what the global power structure and the climate engineering cabal want to achieve. What is the real big picture on the front lines of the climate unraveling?
Hurricane "Alex" was an unprecedented January hurricane, and a harbinger of what is to come. Its impact on the Arctic ice was not covered by mainstream media.
Hurricane Alex appears to have further fueled the ongoing extreme Greenland ice melt, even in the middle of winter. Geoengineering/solar radiation managment, and the global dimming chemical cloud cover effect it is creating, are also worsening the Greenland melt as recent studies prove.
We’ve seen unprecedented above-freezing temperatures at the North Pole coincident with record low daily sea ice extents. We’ve seen global temperatures hitting new, very extreme record highs. We’ve seen climate change related storms raging across the globe — flooding both the UK and the Central US, firing off record hurricanes during January in both the Pacific and the Atlantic — even as other regions swelter under record heat and drought. Now, it appears that Greenland is also experiencing an unprecedented melt during wintertime.
Over the past few days, just such a major heat-up has been underway across a large section of Western Greenland. Warm winds flowing off the North Atlantic — driven by hurricane Alex’s merging with powerful lows south of Greenland — have roared up over the southern coastal ranges. Meanwhile, warm, tropical air has infiltrated northward over Baffin Bay. The net result is temperatures approaching 20-40 degrees Fahrenheit above average (16 to 22 C above average) over a broad region of Western Greenland.
As the geoengineers orchestrate an early year cool-down in the Eastern US (in order to create the winter weather headlines they desperately need to fuel the climate confusion), the Arctic continues its ongoing meltdown with far above normal temperatures.
The corporate controlled media do not show temperature maps that cover the entire planet and which reflect the "departure from normal high temperatures" (like the map above). For this reason most populations continue to be blind to the bigger picture.
What about the "coming ice age" headlines that are seen on some news sites? The narrative is as far from reality as it could be. Excerpts from the most recent study on Earth's cycles of glaciation are below.
The advent of industrial society has since raised this level to about 400ppm. Add another 1,000 to 1,500 gigatonnes of carbon to the atmosphere, and the next ice age is virtually guaranteed to be postponed by 100,000 years, the Potsdam scientists say.
"The bottom line is we are basically skipping a whole glacial cycle, which is unprecedented," Andrey Ganopolski, who led the research team, told the Guardian. "It is mind-boggling that humankind is able to interfere with a mechanism that shaped the world as we know it."
The study reinforces the assertion that the Earth has entered a so-called Anthropocene geological age, marked by humanity's impact on the planet. An international scientific panel is working towards formally classifying the new epoch, with the middle of the 20th century suggested as a potential starting point for the new era.
What is coming for the US after the current climate engineering cool-down passes?
The NOAA "forecast" map above is for the last week of January, 2016 and predicts above normal temperatures for the entire country with far above normal temperatures in many regions. Each color band represents 2-3 degrees above normal. This map is no less than alarming and is a clear reflection of the rapidly warming planet. The intensifying "weather whiplash" is a direct result of the ever more desperate and destructive geoengineering insanity.
How do we effectively fight back against the global climate engineering/weather warfare assault? We start by learning to recognize blatantly false and theatrically hyped headlines, and completely engineered weather events. To do otherwise is to "toe the line" for the the geoengineers and the power structure they are a part of. Discovering the truth is not about believing anyone, it is about doing some real unbiased investigation from the front lines. Credibility is crucial in the battle to expose and halt global geoengineering, the greatest and most immediate threat faced by the human race short of nuclear cataclysm. The planet heating at blinding speed, geoengineering is helping to fuel the overall fire. Make your voice heard in this most critical effort for the greater good.
Health Magazine Covers Climate Engineering: “Heavy Metal Contamination And Mass Extinction – What’s The Connection?”
As the global climate system continues to unravel at an ever more rapid pace, the effort to sound the alarm is also gaining ground. Health Freedom News magazine has yet again shown the courage to face the climate engineering insanity head on. I wish to express my most sincere gratitude to the personnel and management of Health Freedom News for continuing to cover the critical issue of global geoengineering. The editors of this first rate publication have shown a constant commitment to priority issues and to their readers, HFN has previously published a feature article on geoengineering. The magazine article below can be read by clicking the individual images to enlarge them or by clicking the PDF file icon of the full magazine issue at the bottom. All of us matter in the fight to wake the sleeping masses, make your voice heard.
Conveniently timed mass murder terrorist attacks, completely engineered climate catastrophes, and media fueled materialistic mass distraction mayhem, all play into the hand of the power elite. The San Bernardino shootings are latest in a very long string of attacks in which authorities just happened to be engaged in a "drill" for just such an attack, on the day the attack was happening. Isn't it interesting that the same was true of the recent Paris attacks, the Boston bomb attack, the "7/7" London attacks, the 911 attacks, and many many more (at least 63). Is all this just coincidence? Really? False flag terrorist attacks have long since been a primary weapon for the power structure.
Anyone that has truly examined the evidence relating to the 911 attacks can only conclude this event was a massive false flag event.
And how about the weather? There is no shortage of convenient coincidence in that arena either. Record drought disasters have occurred in every single country in the Middle East prior to the destabilization and toppling of these countries. In other countries, record flooding was the gateway to US/NATO occupation. The same pattern holds in many dozens of countries around the globe where there are now US or NATO bases and boots on the ground. The US "homeland" is also a target of the ongoing weather warfare by its own military, the epic California drought is one example. Though the climate is indeed disintegrating as the planet warms from countless sources of anthropogenic damage, global geoengineering is the largest wrench in the works of all. Weather warfare has been used for decades to manipulate and control populations all over the globe.
The aftermath of record shattering cyclone Haiyan that cut a swath of total destruction through the Philippines. The US military moved in under a "humanitarian" pretext and is now setting up new bases. Weather warfare has long since been the weapon of choice for the power structure.
So what do our leaders tell us to do after massive terrorist attacks or even during economic disintegration? "Just go shopping". The vast majority are unfortunately all too willing to take this prompting to remain totally distracted and completely disconnected from reality. A completely stunning video of black Friday 2015 shopping mayhem is below, consider that this materialistic mayhem is occurring while Earth's life support systems are virtually collapsing. This shocking 4 minute video must be seen to be believed, it is a true reflection of the society we have now become.
Those in power are rapidly tightening the noose around our collective necks, and even now the vast majority of populations are completely asleep at the wheel. There are countless individuals willingly participating in the tyranny and deception in exchange for a paycheck and a pension. If the human race is to have any chance at all of averting mathematically certain short term extinction, the masses must be awakened. Those in the military that are carrying out completely immoral orders must refuse to obey. Those in law enforcement must uphold their oaths to protect their citizens. Those of us that are already awake must properly prioritize our time, energy, and focus, on effectively waking others that are still in the dark. Time is not on our side.

The tremors rattling markets are not exactly what they seem to be. A meme prevails that these movements represent a kind of financial peristalsis — regular wavelike workings of eternal progress toward an epic more of everything, especially profits! You can forget the supposedly “normal” cycles of the techno-industrial arrangement, which means, in particular, the business cycle of the standard economics textbooks. Those cycle are dying.
They’re dying because there really are Limits to Growth and we are now solidly in grips of those limits. Only we can’t recognize the way it is expressing itself, especially in political terms. What’s afoot is a not “recession” but a permanent contraction of what has been normal for a little over two hundred years. There is not going to be more of everything, especially profits, and the stock buyback orgy that has animated the corporate executive suites will be recognized shortly for what it is: an assest-stripping operation.
As the global economic house of cards continues to collapse with increasing momentum, the vast majority of global populations are, unfortunately, still looking through a very tainted and distorted lens. They cannot bring themselves to accept reality on countless fronts. Denial is especially tenacious in regard to the ongoing climate engineering atrocities occurring in our skies. Our sense of reason is our greatest gift, but for most this sense has long ago been overridden by societal conditioning, programming, and propaganda.

The implosion of the temporary reality we have all known is already well under way, the collapsing Chinese stock markets are only a harbinger of what is to come. Global shipping is in free-fall as shipping rates plunge, unlimited money printing can no longer hide what is unfolding around the world. China has kept its deceptive GDP (Gross Domestic Product) going in the past in the same manner as the rest of the global economy – with smoke, mirrors, and lies. "Ghost cities" were one of the methods used by the Chinese to keep the illusion of growth going. Now, the inevitable is taking hold, the illusion is disintegrating by the day. The images below are cities with no inhabitants which were constructed to keep the wheels of industry turning and the GDP rising in the East.
The image below is from what has been termed "The scariest housing bubble"
Above is an image of thousands upon thousands of unsold cars parked up on a airport runway near St Petersburg in Russia. They are all imported from Europe, and then parked and left to rot. Consequently, the airport is now unusable for its original purpose.
The end of the reality we have all known draws nearer at blinding speed. Those who cannot see this inevitability will very soon have their eyes opened, they will have no choice but to face the truth. Modern society is comparable to a snake eating its own tail. In the last 40 years the human population has doubled while global wildlife populations have declined by over 50% in the same amount of time, is it rational to believe such a trend could continue? The epitome of human insanity is the attempt to manipulate the climate, the attempt to control Earth's very life support systems.

Industrialized civilization is the mechanism by which climate engineering has been conducted and perpetuated. If the total collapse of this paradigm brings an end to the geoengineering juggernaut of planetary omnicide (and an end to countless destructive factors related to militarized civilization), is that not a step forward for what is yet left of life on Earth? The global elite have long since been preparing for total collapse which their own actions and governance has helped to fuel from the beginning. We all have a responsibility to face reality head-on. Only in doing so will we have any chance of altering the outcome of what is unfolding in a positive direction. If our existence is not about fighting for the greater good (regardless of the odds), what is it about? If it is not about fighting for the future of our children, then what right did we have to bring them into the world? We owe our lives to the children and to the planet they will need to survive. If we can expose and halt climate engineering before the power structure is ready for this to happen, before global collapse is total, we could yet change the outcome. If all of us work together, without fear and trepidation, with focus and conviction, who can say what we may still accomplish for the greater good even at this dark hour. Make your voice heard while there is yet time.
Ideology, bias, and special interests are blinding both sides of the fence in regard to global warming and the lethal geoengineering reality. In environmental circles there is a clear and correct recognition of the fact that the planet is warming at an astounding pace, yet, there is a perplexing denial of the ongoing climate engineering insanity (which is mathematically the greatest single negative influence on the climate system overall). Available evidence proves beyond any reasonable doubt that geoengineering is a reality, not a proposal, so why the denial from environmentalists? On the other side of the fence, in the ranks of the anti-geoengineering community, there is also an unfortunate level of denial in regard to the fact that our planet is melting down with climate engineering helping to fuel the fire. If we are to have any chance of exposing and halting the climate engineering insanity we must stand on solid ground in regard to the facts, credibility is essential. It is essential to consistently examine breaking data from the front lines in order to build solid and credible conclusions. The article below contains verifiable breaking information though the author has not yet shown the courage to acknowledge the climate engineering issue (I have tried to communicate with him).
Hothouse Mass Casualties Strike Egypt, Heat wave Continues To Hospitalize Thousands In Japan
Source: Robert Scribbler
Back in May, official temperatures soared to 35 degrees Celsius (95 degrees Fahrenheit) as humidity levels spiked in Cairo, Egypt. The early high heat and humidity sparked anxiety among residents worrying over the coming summer. Public complaints about official temperatures being lower than actual measures were widespread among a populace vulnerable to heat exposure in a notoriously hot region of the world suffering the ongoing impacts of human-forced warming.
The below video captures some of the sentiment of a few months ago, when concern that record global temperatures in the range of 1 degree Celsius above 1880s averages might result in harm to Egypt’s populace was widespread and growing:
Egyptian residents feared the killing heat was coming back in May. Sadly, their concerns have born out as a powerful heatwave in July and August is resulting in tragic loss of life there.
Unfortunately, the early fears appear to have been all-too-valid. For in late July a seasonal flow of hot, humid air from India, Pakistan and the Persian Gulf began to settle over Egypt. The hot air issued from regions where deaths from 2015 heatwaves numbered in the hundreds and thousands, where hospitalizations numbered in the tens of thousands. As the heat dome extended its oppressive tendrils over Egypt, both temperatures and humidity spiked — pushing wet bulb readings into ranges that made it difficult for humans to maintain body temperatures. Official air temperature readings ranged from 35 to 47 degrees Celsius (95 to 116 degrees Fahrenheit) and the added moisture reduced the ability of evaporation to cool the skin.
The risk of heat injury rose. And over the past few days this hot air and humidity spike began to prey on Egyptian residents. The result was 42 tragic deaths due to the excess heat over the past two days alone. Scores more were hospitalized as the entire country from north to south sweltered.
Weather forecasts, unfortunately, show the hothouse heat continuing to blanket Egypt throughout the coming month. Let’s hope that, somehow, the terrible toll in heat casualties abates.
Japan Heatwave Mass Casualty Event Continues

It’s a hotter world we live in now. One in which any of us living on Earth are now four times as likely to experience a heatwave than we were during the 1880s. And at the most extreme end of this spectrum are the heatwave mass casualty events — which this year have been very numerous and widespread. Italy, Egypt, the Persian Gulf, Pakistan, Indiaand Japan have now all experienced mass hospitalizations and deaths due to the excess heat of a world forced to rapidly warm by human fossil fuel emissions.
For Japan, which has been experiencing heatwave related deaths and hospitalizations since July, the harm due to excess heat spiked to new extremes this week. There, over the past seven days alone, nearly 12,000 people were hospitalized due to heat stroke. That’s the highest number of heatwave related casualties since tracking of these new events began in 2008. And of the thousands hospitalized, an additional 32 souls were lost.
Heat and humidity from a pool of anomalously hot ocean water is still blasting Japan, resulting in the hospitalization of an ever-rising number heatstroke victims. Sea surface temperatures remain in the range of 2-4 degrees Celsius above average as a heat dome high pressure system swelters Japan. Sea surface temperature anomaly map by Earth Nullschool.
The new wave of deaths and hospitalizations brings to over 45,000 the total number of heat stroke victims requiring emergency care in Japan during this summer alone. More than a thousand of these victims have required care extending longer than 3 weeks. And, tragically, more than 85 souls have now been lost.
During this time, Tokyo shattered its record for longest period of 35 C (95 F) degree or hotter days running. The above 35 C readings extended for a full eight days from July 31 to August 7th. It’s high heat and humidity that resulted in hundreds of hospitalizations for that city alone. And though the heat has somewhat abated, temperatures during recent days have remained in the range of 33 to 34 C (92 to 94 F)– still scorching-hot for a typically much cooler city.
Overall, Japan’s oppressive heat dome hasn’t budged. And it will likely remain in place until extremely hot sea surface temperatures surrounding Japan begin to abate. As of today, there was little sign of such relief as the hot waters remained in the range of 2-4 degrees Celsius above average. And so the hot waters continued to pump both heat and moisture into the air around and over Japan, spiking wet bulb readings and creating a dangerous situation for residents not at all used to these abnormal conditions.

Global climate engineering is wreaking havoc on crop production all over the world. Geoengineering's devastating effects come in many forms including drought, deluge, extreme UV radiation levels, and the total contamination of the entire planet, but what impact is climate engineering having on photosynthesis and thus our ability to grow food? The most obvious and easily identified factor in regard to photosynthesis is the blocking of direct sunlight, this is the stated goal of solar radiation management (SRM).
- Reduction of the total solar radiation (sum of direct and diffused) in the photosynthetically active part of the spectrum (0.4-0.7 µ) reduces photosynthesis, which in turn leads to a reduction in productivity.
- Settling of aerosol particles (e.g., fly ash, black carbon and dust) on the plants can shield the leaves from solar radiation.
- In addition, aerosol deposition can increase acidity and cause plant damage.
The points cited above were taken from peer reviewed scientific study on the effect of atmospheric aerosols on photosynthesis. Toxic light scattering heavy metals like aluminum (a primary element used in SRM programs) are, of course, not mentioned in the study since the scientific community does their best to stay away from any admission of climate engineering due to the effect such an admission would have on their careers or worse.
Does the blanket of sun blocking aerosols used for SRM actually contribute to the overall heating of the planet instead of cooling it as we are told? Does this heating also impact photosynthesis? Yes, and again, yes. Even NASA admits that ever more prolific aircraft trails in our skies are warming the planet overall. Recent studies prove that geoengineering programs CAN'T WORK. Earth is currently heating at the thermal energy equivalent of 4 Hiroshima Bombs per second. The rapidly warming climate has a profound effect on photosynthesis.

Excessive heat stops all Photosynthesis
We live in a world of smoke, mirrors, paid deception, and total denial. In the article below it would be more accurate to say that the Tucson Weekly covered part of the climate reality (though they left out the largest single factor to the equation, climate engineering). As conditions get rapidly worse on countless fronts, the denial grows greater from so many directions. Such behavior is a human defense mechanism that paradoxically will lead us to certain extinction if this behavior is not overcome. Scientists like Guy McPherson only tell half truths, half the equation. When I met personally with Guy, his denial of the geoengineering elephant in the room was nothing short of fanatical and aggressive. With this in mind, no matter how dire predictions are under the current course of our species, the most major consideration of all is being completely omitted from the equation, what would occur if there was a complete cessation of the climate engineering juggernaut of destruction? To simply expose the geoengineering assault against the planet and all life would shatter the foundations of the global power structure. Populations around the world would take to the streets in a shock wave of justifiable outrage. Our military brothers and sisters would then be forced to awaken to the fact that they are being used as a mechanism of their own demise. We could then have a real chance to halt climate engineering and let the planet respond on its own to the damage done. We could then inhale air that is not laden with a toxic soup of heavy metals and chemicals which are raining down from the ongoing geoengineering atmospheric spraying. We would have a chance. The article below from the Tucson Weekly is an important read and contains dire data that is for the most part on target (the climate engineering factor is of course omitted by all parties quoted in the article including Rockefeller funded environmental group 350.org). If we just go on about our lives without making the fight to expose geoangineering a priority, we will have no chance. If we face reality head-on, and make our voices heard, we may yet accomplish astounding good, even at this late hour.
Should We Fear Near-Term Human Extinction?
Source: Tucson Weekly, article by Ted Taylor
Most of us have figured out by now that we are toast: Humanity will be wiped out by an asteroid, supernova, massive volcanic eruptions, global axis shift, some untreatable virus, nuclear war or climate change. Our sun is going supernova. We've seen the disaster movies, read the books and laughed at the cartoons.
But how quickly?
University of Arizona emeritus natural resources professor Guy McPherson, author of Extinction Dialogs: How to Live with Death in Mind, which he co-authored with Carolyn Baker, recently spoke at a Unitarian Universalist Church in Eugene, Oregon, offering dire, even shocking predictions.
In his talk, McPherson figures the sixth extinction in Earth's geologic history is already under way. We could see massive die-offs of humans and other species in as little as 18 months, and humanity has at best 10 to 20 years. "I could be wrong," he admits.
McPherson accuses climate scientists of "malpractice" for not being candid with the public about "our 99 percent certainty of death."
"There is no expiration date stamped on us, but we have triggered events that will lead to our extinction in the not-too-distant future," he says.
"Near-term human extinction" even has an acronym, NTHE, and McPherson is certainly not the first scientist or science writer to say we've damaged our ecosystem too much to fix it. The perfect storm of overpopulation, industrialization, pollution, deforestation, monocrops and pesticides, invasive species, urban sprawl, overfishing, warfare, reliance on fossil fuels, ignorance and corruption (and accompanying bad public policy) have had scientists waving distress flags for decades, even before Rachel Carson's Silent Spring of 1960.
The warnings have been ignored or ridiculed at the international, national, state and even local level, thanks in part to a well-funded, right-wing campaign representing the short-term interests of heavy industry, mining and fossil fuel corporations. A growing number of Americans, a record 40 percent, think the dangers of climate change are exaggerated, according to Gallup polling in recent years.
President Obama has helped Democrats wake up to the seriousness of climate change, but 68 percent of Republicans believe the threat is non-existent or overblown. Science is playing second fiddle to politics.
McPherson is correct that few climate scientists are talking about imminent human extinction, but is it a matter of professional "malpractice" or is the scientific community simply less inclined to radical extrapolation for fear of losing credibility (and grants)? Although McPherson is a scientist, he's not a climate scientist doing field research.
Phil Mote, director of the Oregon Climate Change Research Institute at Oregon State University, is skeptical of McPherson's predictions: "I've been connected to national and international assessments of the state of the science of climate change, and although my colleagues and I are generally very concerned about what challenges climate change is bringing to humankind, no expert that I have read has used language like 'extinction of the human race.' I refer of course to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, U.S. National Climate Assessment and various U.S. National Academy of Sciences reports."
Mote is involved with the IPCC, which won the Nobel Prize in 2007 along with Al Gore for their "efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change."
Elizabeth Kolbert, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Sixth Extinction, says, "What is clear, and what is beyond dispute, is that we are living in a time of very, very elevated extinction rates, on the order that you would see in a mass extinction, though a mass extinction might take many thousands of years to play out."
What do local climate change activists think about McPherson and his predictions? "I can appreciate the sledgehammer—especially when people with great influence do great harm," says Delaney Pearson of the 350 Eugene Leadership Team. "But his claim that we have no chance to change anything for the better—no matter what we do—feels like surrender."
Pearson continues: "I certainly don't think our work is a waste of time, and I'm more than happy to keep on talking and writing and, yes, tweeting about all the ways we might change the world for the better." She says, "For now, I choose Bill McKibben and all the people around me and around the world working so hard to turn this crisis into an amazing opportunity for good."
McKibben is a leading voice for climate action, and he recognizes the threat of global climate catastrophe, but his optimistic book Hope, Human and Wild focuses on the many inventive solutions supporting sustainability that he has found around the world.
International journalist and author Dahr Jamail wrote on the nonprofit news site Truth-out.org in December 2014 that "coal will likely overtake oil as the dominant energy source by 2017, and without a major shift away from coal, average global temperatures could rise by 6 degrees Celsius by 2050, leading to devastating climate change. This is dramatically worse than even the dire predictions from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which predicts at least a 5-degree Celsius increase by 2100 as its worst-case scenario."
Jamail adds, "There is nothing to indicate in the political or corporate world that there will be anything like a major shift in policy aimed at dramatically mitigating runaway anthropogenic [human-caused] climate disruption."
Mary DeMocker of 350 Eugene was in the front row at McPherson's talk, and she says: "Until James Hansen or a lot of scientists of his caliber and expertise call it game over, I'm fighting to win and holding onto the thread of hope he offers that it's a closing window, but it's a window nonetheless, and it's still open."
DeMocker adds that McPherson "never mentioned that you can pull carbon out of the atmosphere and reduce the 400 ppm to a livable amount. And in that he's doing a profound disservice. It can be done, 7 percent yearly reduction."
The rationale for extinction
What does McPherson base his NTHE predictions on? In his lectures and on his blog Nature Bats Last (see guymcpherson.com), he says, "I've been accused of having no hope, and that's true." Environmental scientists tend to specialize, and McPherson has collected their published research from around the world. He cites and documents "irreversible, self-reinforcing feedback loops" from hundreds of scientific studies.
He admits to "cherry picking" his data, but "no matter how dire the situation becomes, it only gets worse when I check the latest reports." He was so convinced by the evidence that he left his academic career behind and became a certified grief counselor to help people through their final days.
Even the relatively staid IPCC has warned of such a scenario: "The possibility of abrupt climate change and/or abrupt changes in the Earth system triggered by climate change, with potentially catastrophic consequences, cannot be ruled out. Positive feedback from warming may cause the release of carbon or methane from the terrestrial biosphere and oceans."
Here are a few of McPherson's conclusions. If this is all too depressing, skip to the "What We Can Do About It?" sidebar.
• The Arctic ice cap is breaking up for the first time in recorded history. "An ice-free Arctic could be this year, in September," McPherson says, "and this could lead to a burst of methane at any time" from the shallow Arctic seabed. An ice-free Arctic could also lead to large-scale drilling for oil and gas, which would exacerbate our overdependence on fossil fuels.
• Methane, a greenhouse gas, is also trapped in permafrost and peat bogs in boreal forests. Warming would release vast volumes of methane into the atmosphere. Giant "methane blowholes" are appearing in Siberia. Thawed peat can also catch fire and smolder for years, releasing carbon and covering ice fields with soot. The "dark ice" in turn absorbs sunlight and hastens melting.
• Earth's soils contain countless trillions of microorganisms that hold about half the sequestered carbon on the planet. Soil warming will release carbon dioxide.
• Rising atmospheric carbon dioxide gets a lot of attention (think Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth), but it's only one factor in rising temperatures. Ozone doesn't get as much attention, but atmospheric ozone is blamed for forest dieback, which in turn reduces carbon sequestration.
• Heat by itself will not kill humanity, he says, but hot summers will lead to crop failures and mass migration. "We are clever but we cannot live without habitat, at least not for long." Countries closer to the poles, he says, don't have fertile soils and can't grow nearly enough food to feed billions of people.
• Lack of fresh water is already a huge problem worldwide, and it will get much, much worse. Water shortages will stifle agriculture (think dust bowls and desertification) and seriously hamper business, industry and drinking water supplies. Desalination is expensive and energy-intensive with our current technology.
• The world's 443 nuclear power plants could melt down due to lack of cooling water, blanketing the planet with toxic radiation. It takes decades and many millions of dollars to decontaminate and decommission a single nuclear plant, and more than 60 new nuclear reactors are being built today.
• Rising sea levels will inundate cities and lowlands, displacing more than one billion people and flooding low-elevation farmland with saltwater. Coastal erosion will also destroy plant habitat and release carbon dioxide. A global hike in temperatures of just 1-2 degrees Celsius could raise sea levels by 20 feet, according to a study of the geologic record just released last week by OSU scholars Anders Carlson and Peter Clark.
• Our oceans and their prevailing currents are in flux for a variety of reasons, and jellyfish could take over, destroying the food chain for the rest of sea life. Billions of people rely on seafood and seaweed as diet staples.
• El Niño, a natural cycle of ocean warming, can exacerbate both flooding and drought, along with storm intensity, wildfires and other factors in the "vicious cycle" of climate change.
• Water vapor in the troposphere increases with warming and in turn "absorbs more heat and further raises the Earth's temperature," McPherson reports.
• Our planet in relationship to the sun is already at the "inner edge of the habitable zone, and lies within 1 percent of inhabitability," McPherson says. "A minor change in Earth's atmosphere removes human habitat." None of our neighboring planets can support human life on any significant scale.
Noted Australian science writer Geoffrey Chia, M.D., writes in The Canadian Daily online, "I have learned a great deal from the writings and presentations of Dr. Guy McPherson. However, I do not agree with all of his conclusions or views."
"Everyone gets things wrong," Chia says. "It is impossible to conceive of any credible scenario in which the mass die-off of billions of people will not occur in the century. Mass culling is guaranteed. … Is it, however, possible that a small number of humans may be able to survive the next couple of thousand years, given adequate preparations in certain geographical pockets, until the overall global climate becomes more conducive to humans?"
Chia figures planetary temperatures will "eventually cool in the long term in the absence of large numbers of humans," and biosequestration of carbon will resume.
Hydrologist and science writer Scott K. Johnson is more skeptical and writes on his Fractal Planet blog: "It takes careful examination of McPherson's references, and a familiarity with the present state of climate science, to uncover that his claims aren't scientific at all."
Johnson says McPherson "just latches onto anything that sounds scary," he is "especially fast and loose with timeframes," and "his argument fundamentally reduces to 'positive feedbacks exist, ergo extinction.'"
Some final thoughts on extinction
"After his talk I went home and read his book—whole—gobbled it up nearly," says Jungian psychoanalyst Jennifer Gordon of 350 Eugene. "I wanted to ask him to say more about 'It depends on the political will of the people,' the only hopeful thing I heard him say."
Delaney Pearson of 350 Eugene says, "To McPherson I would also argue that we (the privileged first world) have debts to pay, and it's not good enough to just give up and 'face the truth' while billions of people continue to experience the worst effects of climate change. This is about justice—on all levels. The animals and trees, rivers, oceans and skies, children and new babies everywhere need and deserve our attention."
Laurie Granger of the Raging Grannies and 350 Eugene says, "We're all living in this moment. In every forum we share our concerns and knowledge and passionately try to make a difference. As we're on this path, there's no room for doom and gloom."
Laurie Ehlhardt of 350 Eugene says Pope Francis departs from McPherson's outlook concerning where we go from here. She quotes his recent encyclical: "Many things have to change course, but it is we human beings above all who need to change. A great cultural, spiritual and educational challenge stands before us, and it will demand that we set out on the long path of renewal."
What can we do about it?
Guy McPherson quotes Edward Abbey, saying, "Action is the antidote to despair," and encourages activists to go down fighting. Giving up and being depressed accomplishes nothing and is no way to die, or live for that matter. He advocates for "the simple life," echoing the idea that we should "live simply so that others may simply live."
"Do what you love to do and live life by striving for excellence every day," he says. "Treat people with dignity and compassion, and think about how you are going to live and not about how you are going to die."
He says to "not worry about the jerks in your life, the guy in the Hummer who just cut you off. He will die, too."
Knowing we are all going to die soon can also be liberating, McPherson says. No more worries about that retirement plan, that bucket list, how to pay for the grandkids' education, etc. Money, in fact, will be worthless when the world economy collapses. Even gold and silver will lose their value when they can no longer buy food, water and shelter.
Worried about your personal legacy? It takes about 10 million years to recover from mass extinction. The next evolution of Homo sapiens will have no knowledge of you, Beethoven, Donald Trump or Kim Kardashian's butt.
Groups of people who have accepted abrupt climate change (ABC, another new acronym) are forming, and a website is up at onlyloveremains.org. The website offers low-cost workshops and reads, "You've come to grips with near-term human extinction. It's a lonely conclusion, one that interferes with many relationships. You want somebody with whom to discuss the most important topic in the history of our species. It seems most of your friends and family are in denial. Now what?"

Planet Earth and it's life support systems have been severely damaged from countless forms of human activity. The greatest single source of damage on so many fronts is climate engineering. Agricultural collapse is not somewhere out on the horizon, it is here. According to reports just published, Mongolia has lost 80% of their crops due to unprecedented drought and harsh conditions, yes, that's 80%.
Struggling Mongolian farmer
The crisis in Mongolia is not at all unique as similar scenarios are unfolding around the globe. In Thailand drought has been so severe that the country's military is being used to keep farmers from any unauthorized pumping of the water they need to keep their crops alive as the last remaining irrigation canals continue to dry up.
Farmers stand by their water pumps at the Makhamtao Uthong irrigation canal in Praek Sriracha, Chainat province, on June 22, 2015
In Brazil the situation is no different. Agriculture is being hit hard by the unprecedented lack of precipitation as reservoirs are run dry and crops die off.
Another empty reservoir in San Paulo, Brazil
We live in a societal paradigm in which glaringly obvious truths and blatant realities (which should be visible to any with clear vision and a sense of reason) are completely denied by the experts and agencies that the public believes are paid to know and tell the truth. The greatest and most shocking example of this conditioned (or paid) blindness is centered on the subject of global climate engineering and its rapidly worsening cataclysmic effects.
In addition to destroying the ozone layer and completely contaminating the entire biosphere, geoengineering is causing historic drought on four continents. The world's ground water is being depleted at an astoundingly rapid rate.
The laws of physics dictate more rain on a warming planet (and our planet is in meltdown), how is it possible that there is so much drought? Geoengineering is the unacknowledged elephant in the room that is creating drought. The science community admits geoengineering "could cut" global rainfall, but has yet to show the courage to state climate engineering has long since been fully deployed. Solar radiation management (SRM) programs are creating global dimming which then fuels global droughts.
Killer droughts (that are a direct result of climate engineering) are decimating countless regions around the planet. Brazil, Puerto Rico, Australia, Africa, Russia, The US, the Philippines, and the Caribbean to name a few. The power structure and the geoengineers who do their bidding have humanity by the throat and they are not about to let go. They control the flow of water and the toxicity of the air we breath. Those who print the money are controlling the fate of planet Earth and all life on it, so far populations have stood by and let it happen. It is up to each and every one of us to get involved with this all important battle to bring the climate engineering omnicide to the light of day before all is lost. Exposing and halting climate engineering must be our top priority. If the weather warfare assault is not stopped soon, nothing else will matter. When communicating this issue to elected officials, meteorologists, media, etc (that are publicly denying the lethal geoengineering issue), they should be informed in writing that the public will likely hold them accountable as accomplices in the climate engineering crimes and cover-up once the population is fully awakened to reality. When geoengineering is brought to an end, we will have many other challenges to face, but stopping climate engineering is the first step on which all others depend. Make your voice heard in this most critical fight.
The narrative of the modern industrialized economy being a success is a lie of unimaginable proportion. Nature has historically produced 75% of all global GDP (gross domestic product) for free, no longer. If nature dies, we die. Modern society is now consuming itself to keep the facade of "progress" going until the last minute. As the last sand drains from the hourglass, global climate engineering is diminishing what chance there may yet be to salvage any part of Earth's life support systems. The false paradigm of perpetual expansion on a finite planet with finite resources is disintegrating by the day. Any chance we have left at this point rests on exposing and stopping the climate engineering insanity before there is nothing left to save. The article below is an excellent portrayal of what is unfolding with a few important exceptions. The omission of the geoengineering factor (which many authors and publishers are still afraid to face or admit to)., And the mention of carbon credit taxes which are a scam and just another part of the problem. This being said, the article covers many important facts and is well worth the time to read.Make your voice heard in this battle today, tomorrow may be too late.
Catastrophic sea level rise is not an if, but a when. In reality, it is already well underway and getting worse rapidly. Even the newly released study that makes clear oceans are rising 10 times faster than previous estimates still likely falls far short of the true gravity of what is unfolding. Those that are still desperately clinging to their denial of global climate engineering will be forced to face their fears very soon, countless converging climate related cataclysms are closing in on us all. Governments around the globe have long since collaborated and fully deployed global climate engineering programs, they absolutely knew what was coming. The paradox is this, available data indicates climate engineering is actually making the overall warming far worse, not better (while at the same time irreparably contaminating the entire planet in the process). Recent studies prove solar radiation management can't work and will thus only exacerbate an already bad climate scenario. What will the US southern and eastern coasts look like as the seas overtake low lying lands, the map below is sobering and yet is only a tiny glimpse of the overall calamity of biosphere collapse now faced by the human race.
When all the ice deposits around the globe melt (and this is the fast track that we are on) , the total sea level rise is in the vicinity of 80 meters. The power structure is trying desperately to hide what is unfolding from public for as long as possible for obvious reasons, it is up to each and every one of us to bring the critical climate engineering issue to the light of day. The article below is the most recent study update from the front lines. Though climate engineering is not mentioned in this latest study (as is the case with so many publications which are as of yet afraid to speak the whole truth), data presented is still relevant.
Earth's Most Famous Climate Scientist Issues Bombshell Sea Level Warning
Source: Mother Jones, article by Eric Holthaus
In what may prove to be a turning point for political action on climate change, a breathtaking new study casts extreme doubt about the near-term stability of global sea levels.
The study—written by James Hansen, NASA's former lead climate scientist, and 16 co-authors, many of whom are considered among the top in their fields—concludes that glaciers in Greenland and Antarctica will melt 10 times faster than previous consensus estimates, resulting in sea level rise of at least 10 feet in as little as 50 years. The study, which has not yet been peer-reviewed, brings new importance to a feedback loop in the ocean near Antarctica that results in cooler freshwater from melting glaciers forcing warmer, saltier water underneath the ice sheets, speeding up the melting rate. Hansen, who is known for being alarmist and also right, acknowledges that his study implies change far beyond previous consensus estimates. In a conference call with reporters, he said he hoped the new findings would be "substantially more persuasive than anything previously published." I certainly find them to be.
To come to their findings, the authors used a mixture of paleoclimate records, computer models, and observations of current rates of sea level rise, but "the real world is moving somewhat faster than the model," Hansen says.
Hansen's study does not attempt to predict the precise timing of the feedback loop, only that it is "likely" to occur this century. The implications are mindboggling: In the study's likely scenario, New York City—and every other coastal city on the planet—may only have a few more decades of habitability left. That dire prediction, in Hansen's view, requires "emergency cooperation among nations."
We conclude that continued high emissions will make multi-meter sea level rise practically unavoidable and likely to occur this century. Social disruption and economic consequences of such large sea level rise could be devastating. It is not difficult to imagine that conflicts arising from forced migrations and economic collapse might make the planet ungovernable, threatening the fabric of civilization.
The science of ice melt rates is advancing so fast, scientists have generally been reluctant to put a number to what is essentially an unpredictable, nonlinear response of ice sheets to a steadily warming ocean. With Hansen's new study, that changes in a dramatic way. One of the study's co-authors is Eric Rignot, whose own study last year found that glacial melt from West Antarctica now appears to be "unstoppable." Chris Mooney, writing for Mother Jones, called that study a "holy shit" moment for the climate.
One necessary note of caution: Hansen's study comes via a nontraditional publishing decision by its authors. The study will be published in Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics, an open-access "discussion" journal, and will not have formal peer review prior to its appearance online later this week. The complete discussion draft circulated to journalists was 66 pages long, and included more than 300 references. The peer review will take place in real time, with responses to the work by other scientists also published online. Hansen said this publishing timeline was necessary to make the work public as soon as possible before global negotiators meet in Paris later this year. Still, the lack of traditional peer review and the fact that this study's results go far beyond what's been previously published will likely bring increased scrutiny. On Twitter, Ruth Mottram, a climate scientist whose work focuses on Greenland and the Arctic, was skeptical of such enormous rates of near-term sea level rise, though she defended Hansen's decision to publish in a nontraditional way.
In 2013, Hansen left his post at NASA to become a climate activist because, in his words, "as a government employee, you can't testify against the government." In a wide-ranging December 2013 study, conducted to support Our Children's Trust, a group advancing legal challenges to lax greenhouse gas emissions policies on behalf of minors, Hansen called for a "human tipping point"—essentially, a social revolution—as one of the most effective ways of combating climate change, though he still favors a bilateral carbon tax agreed upon by the United States and China as the best near-term climate policy. In the new study, Hansen writes, "there is no morally defensible excuse to delay phase-out of fossil fuel emissions as rapidly as possible."
Asked whether Hansen has plans to personally present the new research to world leaders, he said: "Yes, but I can't talk about that today." What's still uncertain is whether, like with so many previous dire warnings, world leaders will be willing to listen.

Those in power have never had any regard for the irreparable decimation they are inflicting on our planet. From the current and ongoing blatant toxic spraying of our skies to the endless trail of nuclear debris that have been scattered all over the globe, we are in real trouble. Many have never known what happened to all the nuclear waste from countless insane tests in the South Pacific, but they may soon find out as the insanity comes back to haunt us.

Hornby Island July 6, 2015 – Yesterday around 4 am, I awoke disturbed and opened my back door on an ominous orange sky. I'm either in an Alfred Hitchcock movie or it's the end of the world, I muttered.
Right the second time.
Last evening down at the cove, shutterbugs snapped away with giant lenses at a fat red ball that looked more like Mars than the setting sun. And this morning, I awoke hacking and choking. The smoke streaming through an open window smelled like a big building burning right next door.
But there is no big building.
And it wasn't burning.
Even more unsettling, the usual daybreak cacophony of robins, ravens, eagles and crows was… silent.
The winged ones had fled.
I flipped on the laptop and booted up…
“A haze blankets the majority of people in BC,” Global News was reporting. Comparing square-kilometers, this is the same as saying, “a haze blankets most people in California, New Zealand and the UK.” [Global News July 6/15; BCRobyn.com]
While I'd slept, across the Georgia Strait the Metro Vancouver Air Quality Health Index had gone to 10+ “Very High Risk”. Health officials are warning that secondhand wildfire smoke inflames lung and heart linings – and is especially dangerous for infants, the elderly and those who have diabetes, lung or heart disease. (Yikes! C'est moi!)
As my wounded ticker protests this latest insult, the Times Colonist confirms that wildfires burning throughout the province are increasing hospital admissions for cardiovascular symptoms. People with chronic medical conditions are being warned to avoid “strenuous exercise” and stay the heck inside. [Times Colonist July 5/15; Global News July 6/15; CBC July 6/15]
I shut the window, cranked the HEPA filter up high and popped another baby aspirin.
Somebody Call Somebody
Several burning BC communities have declared states of emergency, which means the provincial government must borrow more money to pick up the tab. With climate events cascading, we know how this ends.
With most of British Columbia officially declared an “Extreme Fire Risk”, a province-wide ban on all fires, campfires, fireworks, torches, “exploding rifle targets” and similar shenanigans is in effect. The fine for violators is 100 grand. But at this point, anyone seen flicking a glowing butt towards the woods will probably be shot. And maybe not with a tranquilizer dart. [Vancouver Sun July 5/15]
A wildfire up north near Port Hardy is burning less than 300 metres from some evacuated homes. This is extremely weird. As a frequent visitor to “Port” informed me by phone, he's been there “maybe two days when it wasn't raining.” [CBC July 6/15]
But not recently. This “wet coast” town at the northern tip of Vancouver Island hasn't seen rain in two months. “People in the north island need to understand that we are in a very unusual place,” advises Port Hardy Mayor Hank Bood. “We’re not fooling around anymore.” [Canadian Press July 6/15]
“We’re in areas where we’ve never been before. We’ve never had a dry May and June like we’ve just had,” echoes North Vancouver Mayor, Darrell Mussatto. “We’re at record low inflows into our reservoirs.” [Global News July 6/15]
Can You Say British California?
This is the first weekend of enhanced water restrictions. The “Level 4” drought rating currently in effect for southern Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands, means “water supplies are insufficient to meet the needs of communities and ecosystems.” Residents are required to try to cut their water use by an additional 20% over “regular” reductions. [CBC July 6/15]
“Level 4” drought = Panic Now And Avoid The Rush
There is no Level 5.
With nearly all of the lower mainland, most of Vancouver Island, and vast areas of northeastern and central BC now in extreme fire danger rating, it feels more like late-August 2030 than early July 2015.
Despite a massive weekend tourist blitz, at least this tinder-dry, 11 square-mile isle isn't burning yet. But with 178 total active wildfires on nearby Vancouver Island and the BC mainland, we are surrounded by burning forests and desiccated grasslands to our north, south and east. [Global News July 5/15]
According to the authorities, much of the smoke settling in the trees outside is coming from a wildfire burning in steep terrain and heavy timber near Pemberton. Tripling in size overnight, this 2,000-hectare fire “is displaying a vigorous and aggressive rate of spread, with periods of organized crown fire,” the BC Wildfire Management Branch reports. Crown fires spread flames from exploding tree top to tree top, igniting “spot fires” ahead of their advance. [CBC July 6/15]
Pemberton is 299 kilometers away.
Closer across the water, one firefighter has died fire-fighting in Sechelt, where the Shishalh Nation reports a spike in respiratory distress calls to emergency services. The 38-bed St. Mary’s Hospital is filled to capacity with health complications from smoke inhalation. [Global News July 5/15; Vancouver Sun July 5/15]
“It’s unusual for this time of year; there’s no relief in sight in the weather forecast. We’re expecting temperatures in the mid-30s [C], and absolutely no rain forecast in the near future. That’s definitely cause for concern,” worries Provincial Fire Information Officer, Kevin Skrepnek.
How about freaking out?
Knock Knock. Who's There? Carbon Karma Collectors
And how about mentioning the perils of gung-ho carbon burning? In a deluge of news reports on BC's Big Burning, repeated mentions are being made of this record dastardly drought. But not it's cause. While industrial stacks belch greenhouse gases, and holiday-makers everywhere race crazily around in cars, boats and planes – total mentions of “climate change”, “global warming” and “record-high carbon emissions” in press stories relating to major fires now burning in three provinces, Alaska and Siberia… ?
High And Dry
So go ahead and guess the number of corporate-media references to ongoing geoengineering aerosols sponging up the remaining moisture over North America's gasping western seaboard…
“With temperatures 12–18 degrees [C] hotter than they normally are this time of year,” the Canadian Press suggests, “a massive ridge of high pressure will remain anchored over the Pacific Northwest [with] ongoing dry conditions and warmer than normal” temperatures.
Canada's national wire service neglected to mention how this “Ridiculously Resilient Ridge” is being created by a flatlined jetstream, no longer driven by the usual north-south temperature differentials wiped out by human-induced warming… and daily maintained by an ongoing aerosol assault clearly visible to anyone looking up at those telltale white plumes who understands they should be seeing no icy contrails at this time of year.
Atmospheric-heating gases at 350 parts per million are optimistically considered possibly/maybe/wait-and-see “safe”.
Right now, on this freakish morning during Earth's careening Sixth Mass Extinction, carbon dioxide-equivalent greenhouse gases (CO2e) are nudging past 478 ppm… [MIT]
Misha phoned next. “Nobody's gets it,” she said in a voice verging on despair. Indeed, frantic denialists are blaming The Big Drying on:
1. Bad luck
2. The pope
3. A vindictive sky god
4. “Cyclical” global extinction events
5. Just one of those things
A poll of 20 countries shows the United States comfortably leading the world in climate denial. Just four out of 10 Americans think climate change is a serious threat to their carbon-belching, weather-wracked nation.
More than half of USers agree with the statement: “The climate change we are currently seeing is a natural phenomenon that happens from time to time.”
But 74% of South Koreans and 78% of Japanese disagree.
The populations of France, Italy, Turkey, Spain and Argentina have also totally flunked climate denial, with 80% or more of those surveyed telling pollsters that human activity is driving climate change. While more than 60% of surveyed Spaniards and Italians and more than 70% of Japanese consider climate change a serious threat, in China 91% of those polled say we're doomed if we don't change our ways.

Just 10 days ago, a NASA/MODIS satellite shot showed much of Baked Alaska shrouded under a 3,000+ mile cloud of smoke. Now enmeshed in the high-altitude jetstream, “it blankets much of the Northern Hemisphere in a brown-carbon haze.” [Robert Scribbler June 26/15]
Meanwhile, as the hot Pacific Ocean turns anoxic and acidic beneath the keel of my solar-electric outrigger canoe… throughout Siberia, Alaska and the high Arctic, no-longer-frozen permafrost continues to burn in vast underground peat fires. Hundreds of billions of tons of peat drying in record-high winter, spring and summer temperatures “creates an understory fuel that can keep blazes burning for weeks, months, and sometimes years,” Robert Scribbler warns, “pushing blazes to explosive size and dumping massive plumes of smoke into an atmosphere already heavily laden with Alaska’s brown carbon pulse.” [Electra Finds Some Wind; Robert Scribbler June 29/15]
Back in the White House, someone must be smelling smoke. Earlier last month at the National Hurricane Center, Obama dared suggest that climate change is fuelling extreme weather. “This is the only planet we’ve got,” came the predictable presidential sound-bite. “And years from now, I want to be able to look our children and grandchildren in the eye and tell them that we did everything we could to protect it.”
He'll be lucky if they don't whack him upside the head. This is the same guy who just green-lighted offshore Arctic oil drilling and promised to open vast tracts of public land to heavily-subsidized coal mining. [OtherWords June 7/15]
Reality 10, Denial 0
Here's the real deal:
On June 18, 2015, some 320,000 square kilometers of reflective Arctic sea ice melted into dark, heat-absorbing waters in a single day. That’s an ice cube the size of New Mexico gone in 24 hours. [Robert Scribbler June 18/15]
In Alaska, on that same day, close to a half-million more forest acres burned. The 314 wildfires raging throughout the state brought the 2015 total to 1,912,000 acres incinerated by human-powered climate shift and abetted by geoengineering madmen. (At some near-future Eco-Nuremberg trial, we're going to ask them why.)
Also in a recent single day, 138 new fires erupting throughout northwest Canada propelled that burn pile to more than 2,250,000 acres since the start of 2015. Some of those fire fronts among the 30 blazes burning near Great Slave Lake were more than 15 miles long.
Oh, Oh, Canada
Nearly eight out of every 10 Canadians say that Earth’s climate is changing and the federal government is failing to address this growing “problem”. More than half of all Canadians (56%) are convinced climate change is the result of human activities. [National Post May 18/15]
But thinking isn't doing.
With geoengineering aerosols and smoke plumes alternately obscuring our skies, the most pertinent question is:
