GeoengineeringWatch.org Introduces The US Anti-Geoengineering Legal Team
The military industrial complex is completely out of control, the ongoing global climate engineering atrocities are the most dire and glaring testimony to this fact. Official government documents (like a 750 page US senate report and an 80 page presidential report) prove this fact beyond reasonable doubt. In the power structure's increasing desperate attempt to hide the truth, there is now an illegal federal "gag order" on all National Weather Service and NOAA employees. The long and growing list of climate engineering patents is also a glaring confirmation of global climate engineering and the powers invested in it. Those in power would have us believe that we cannot "fight the system". They would have us believe that the efforts of a few cannot make a difference or "turn the tide". We must never accept this lie. All of our combined efforts (especially including all the front line activists that are doing their best to sound the alarm) have helped immensely to raise public awareness on the critical climate engineering issue. As that awareness grows exponentially, many new activists have joined our ranks from countless professions. Some of those that have stepped forward are concerned and courageous attorneys. The attorneys introduced below are a part of the US legal team that is working with GeoengineeringWatch.org on the critical effort to expose and halt the ongoing climate engineering insanity in addition to the Canadian legal team that geoengineeringwatch.org is working with. Over the last year I have had the distinct honor of working with each and all of the attorneys introduced below (and several more on the team that may be introduced at a later date).

Just look up and you will see the climate modification and cloud engineering programs by the federal government, its contractors and other affiliates going on in our skies almost every day. They are releasing toxic chemicals over our heads and environment without scientific justification, public debate or legal permit. That is not “natural” cloud formation or the byproduct of commercial aircraft. The elephant in the sky is real and is subject to the rule of law, including the law of gravity. The resulting damage to our environment and human health is widespread.
There is no “pharmaceutical fix” to climate change and global warming. As Albert Einstein said: “We can not solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them.” We deserve answers from the groups releasing toxic chemicals over our heads, as well as from those who have turned a blind eye to them, in violation of our environmental and human rights laws. President Lincoln said: “I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts.” We all must wake up and confront the reality of what is happening. Martin Luther King, Jr. said: “There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must do it because conscience tells him it is right.”
As an attorney, officer of the court, citizen of this nation, and steward of this planet, I have a fiduciary duty to shine a light on the climate engineering programs occurring virtually every day over California and across the country. The federal lawsuit we are preparing and will soon file seeks to stop the climate engineering programs and have those involved answer to the people and planet. Hopefully, the lawsuit will also spark public debate and real media attention to address the challenge of climate change in a responsible manner and without further delay. Time is of the essence to do the right thing.
Robert L. Wegman, ESQ
The Law Office Of Robert L. Wegman, PLC
Robert L. Wegman, PLC, is a Chesapeake attorney serving the Hampton Roads, VA, area.
Born September 2, 1961, in Columbus, Ohio, Mr. Wegman grew up in a military family. His father retired from the Air Force, and as a child Mr. Wegman spent a great deal of his life living on military bases, and surrounded by the honorable men and women of the U.S. Military. He graduated from undergraduate school in 1983 In 1989, Mr. Wegman was selected to attend Coast Guard Officer Candidate School. He proudly served for almost 12 years achieving the rank of Lieutenant Commander. While serving many quasi-legal and operational roles during the aftermath of massive Exxon Valdez oil spill, he gained a keen interest in environmental law. He decided to apply for the highly competitive and prestigious Legal Education Program, and was one of 4 selected to attend law school full time.
Mr. Wegman chose New York Law School in Manhattan where he was meritoriously selected to be an editor of the heralded Law Review. Upon graduation with his Juris Doctorate degree, he was transferred to MLC Atlantic and Atlantic Area commands in Norfolk and Portsmouth, respectively, where he served in the Legal Division. His military experience served to further his dedication to his clients. While in the Coast Guard, Mr. Wegman was temporarily assigned to the Naval Legal Service Office, where he defended the rights of sailors and marines in countless Administrative Discharge Boards, Boards of Inquiry, and Courts-Martial, involving the most serious charges and offenses. He also spent 20 months as a Special Assistant United States Attorney in the Norfolk Division where he prosecuted felonies and misdemeanors in federal court.
Mr. Wegman resigned in 2000 to pursue private practice. He was hired as an environmental lawyer with the renowned law firm Paul Hastings Janofsky & Walker on Park Avenue and 55th Street in Manhattan. There, he did a lot of environmental site assessment work and represented the Intrepid Sea Air Space Museum in asbestos litigation before the New York Department of Conservation. He also assisted with rewriting sections of the leading treatise on New York Environmental Law.
Following the tragedy of 9/11, Mr. Wegman volunteered to assist grieving families, particularly those of first responders with their legal needs, including affidavits pertaining to their missing and presumed dead loved ones. The slow down in the real estate market in New York led Mr. Wegman to pursue other options where in 2003, he opened his own firm.
Michel de Montaigne in the 16th century once said "Ignorance is the softest pillow on which a man can rest his head." Though that prolific statement applies more today than at any point in my lifetime, I can only wonder what he would have said about complacency. How can a rational person look into the sky and think the ubiquitous persistent trails, creating grid-like patterns are anything but the work of forces bent on destroying earth's life support system? I joined the movement to end geoengineering. I have witnessed the destruction of plant and animal life, and I have heard too many people attempt to explain away their own irrational and sudden respiratory health issues, including chronic fatigue, using rational thought.
Nothing is more frustrating than attempting to discuss the possible causes of planetary destruction with people who refuse to see what is "hidden in plain sight." People are simply too preoccupied to look up, and they lack the intellectual curiosity to see if what I am saying could hold a kernel of truth. It's more than fair to say this team is risking friendships, public and private humiliation, and even marriages to do what has to be done. Mankind is on borrowed time. By the time people wake up, it may well be too late to save our home (the earth) and ourselves. But, I cannot, and will not, go down without a fight. I thank Dane for helping me to find some sense of order out of this chaos. His website has been a valuable resource. He has opened my eyes, and I am honored to be a part of the legal team.
Finally, Montaigne is also credited with saying "if you don't know how to die, don't worry; Nature will tell you what to do on the spot, fully, and adequately. She will do this job perfectly for you; don't bother your head about it." The planetary destruction is not natural, thus I will worry my head about it until I can no longer do so. The military/industrial complex Eisenhower warned us about has been running amok and must be stopped. As we used to say in the military: lead, follow, or get out of the way. Dane has demonstrated how to lead. I am more than prepared to follow and I urge the rest of you to do the same.

Deliberate climate modification through aerosol spraying is the greatest manmade environmental disaster that has ever occurred on the planet. I have long been an environmentalist, but a few years ago when I woke up to what was happening in our skies, I realized that unless we stopped climate modification, the other environmental issues would be moot. Though I believe that educating others that this happening is very important, nothing much stops in America without lawsuits. If we have any hope to stop geoengineering at all, I believe that lawsuits are the best way. I am here to provide support in helping these lawsuits go forward.
William Blackwell, ESQ
William W. Blackwell is a graduate of the University of Colorado School of Journalism, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Advertising; and a graduate of Western State University College of Law, with a Juris Doctorate degree.

He currently resides in the Lake Tahoe area of Nevada, with his wife Angela.
Residing in a beautiful area, such as Lake Tahoe, it is clear that in order to protect such a valuable resource, one has to first become aware of the dangers of pollution to both the air and water and the horrific effects it can have, and is having, to our environment and personal health. I am truly blessed an honored to be apart of the Anti-GeoEngineering Legal Team, and to assist in bringing our legal actions to the attention of the Media so that the public at large can become aware of those dangers, and the negative impact it is currently having, not only here in the United States, but around the world.

Edward A. Strenkowski, ESQ

"It's pretty simple actually. It's a serious felony to dump noxious and harmful substances into the Nation's water supplies without federal permits.— No one in their right minds would think this is a lawful activity. Day after day with reckless indifference these polluters engage in egregious and flagrant violation of the bedrock of our water health and safety laws — the Clean Water and Safe Drinking Water Acts. And to see the federal and state regulators sit idly by and look the other way is equally abhorrent — they have betrayed their oaths and the sacred trust of their offices by failing to exercise vigilance and enforce our nation's pollution laws designed to protect us and the environment. The mission of our legal team is to do everything possible to put an immediate end to this constant and unrelenting poisonous dosing of us and our nation's waters through unauthorized aerial spraying. And we are going to stop this activity by going to federal court — the courts are the highest authority in the land, and our best chance for relief from this insanity.
As private "attorney generals," we are taking these polluters and our delinquent regulatory agencies to court using the citizen suit provisions of our environmental laws. Our message is simple — you break the law, you suffer the consequences, including restoration of the environmental damage you caused. Those involved in this around the clock aerial dumping by spraying make the heinous midnight dumpers of yesteryear look like little leaguers by comparison. We will stop this insanity."
For the last twelve years Dane has been completely focused on investigating, exposing, and halting the ongoing global climate engineering insanity. He is the lead researcher and administrator for the website GeoengineeringWatch.org. He was a former employee of Bechtel Power corporation and has a background in renewable energy. Dane's completely off-grid home in the wilderness of Northern California was the cover article of the world's largest renewable energy magazine. When Dane began to note massive losses in his home's solar power uptake due to solar obscuration (the blocking of the sun from the ever more aggressive and obvious jet aircraft spraying of atmospheric particulates), he began constant research, lab testing, and reporting on the climate engineering/solar radiation management issue. For over a decade, Dane has given data presentations on the climate engineering issue in hundreds of radio forums and public speaking awareness events, in addition to speaking and presenting data to many agencies and officials including the California Air Resources Board, the California Energy Commission, the Shasta County Board of Supervisors, Barbara Boxer's office, US Congressman Doug LaMalfa, and California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom (and his aids) in Lt. Governor's office at the California State Capitol.
The climate engineering atrocities occurring in our skies came to my attention when I began losing massive amounts of solar power uptake (on my off-grid residence) due to the jet aircraft spraying/dispersions that were rapidly increasing in frequency and intensity. After numerous lab tests confirmed the highly toxic climate engineering contamination was saturated in the air column and thus poisoning not just my region, but the entire planet. I was left with no alternative but to focus all my efforts and energies on this critical issue. I have never been politically minded, and have never before been an activist. I am a concerned father that feels I have a responsibility to my children (all children), and to the planet as a whole on which all life depends. Global climate engineering/geoengineering/solar radiation management is mathematically the greatest and most immediate threat we face short of nuclear cataclysm. I wish to express my deepest gratitude to all the attorneys that have joined this most critical effort, and my deepest thanks to all the activists who are dedicated to this most important fight for the greater good.
If we are to have any chance of exposing and halting the ongoing global climate engineering assault, awareness raising efforts must be continued and advanced on ALL fronts of the battle. Though the legal effort is an essential part of the overall effort, the pending legal action does not negate the need for all other credible awareness raising efforts to continue moving forward at the fastest possible pace. The pending US legal action, being prepared by the combined efforts of the legal team and GeoengineeringWatch.org, is not affiliated with any other groups, organizations, websites, or individuals. Any that wish to further support the attorney team can do so through the 100% non-profit fund here, all contributions are 100% tax deductible. We are rapidly running out of time as the biosphere implosion accelerates, we must all make every single day count in this all important battle for the greater good, all of our voices matter and are essential. There is only one way forward in this fight, to reach a critical mass of climate engineering awareness with the overall population, this effort will take every single one of us.
