New Study Confirms Climate Engineering Is Contributing To The Planetary Meltdown

Share

The entire premise of "solar radiation management" (SRM, a form of geoengineering) is to create artificial cloud cover by spraying reflective aerosols into the atmosphere. This incredibly insane tunnel visioned "human intervention" approach to cooling planet Earth is so packed with pitfalls that they are impossible to quantify. But what is the bottom line? Covering the planet with artificial aerosol cloud cover contributes to the overall warming of the planet. Why would this be a surprise? The same materials that deflect some of the sun's incoming thermal energy also traps heat. 

Cloud forcing

This is the tip of the known negative climate engineering effects. The ozone layer is being shredded, the hydrological cycle has been completely derailed, and the entire planet has now been heavily contaminated, this is what climate engineering has given us. The planet's energy balance has long since been completely disrupted. Earth is currently warming at the rate of 4 Hiroshima bombs PER SECOND. There are countless sources of anthropogenic activity (human caused) contributing to the rapid warming of our planet. Though climate engineers can create short term (highly toxic) cooling over large regions, it comes at the cost of a worsened overall warming. This is the conclusion dictated by all available data and this has always been the conclusion of my posted materials on geoengineeringwatch.org and elsewhere. Though the article below does not directly address climate engineering and the massive global aerosol cloud cover it is producing, the inference is clear enough. This new study further confirms our long standing conclusions, solar radiation management is making an already bad climate and environmental situation far worse, not better.

New Study Finds Clouds Are Amplifying Human Warming

The Mysterious Clouds

For decades, science has been unable to nail down how clouds might change with human warming of the climate. Sure, we knew that added water vapor through a heating-increased amplification of the rate of evaporation and precipitation would likely impact cloud formation. But how would those physical alterations impact climate? Would an added darkening of the Earth through increased cloud cover provide a cooling effect and slow down the rate of human-caused warming (also called a negative feedback)? Or would the added water vapor aloft, itself a powerful greenhouse gas, provide an extra boost to the human heating engine (also called an amplifying feedback)?

The mainstream climate models thus assumed a zero to slightly positive heat feedback from clouds and relied on decadal verification runs to help test for accuracy. A kind of backwards checking that excluded values from clouds due to a lack of needed information.

Confusionists Take Advantage of Cloud Uncertainty

It was an uncertainty hanging in the very air above us. An uncertainty many climate confusionists used to sow doubt over a broad range of issues involving how sensitive the Earth is to the human heat forcing. They often argued, through this scientific dim spot, that climate sensitivity was, indeed, quite low and that we had very little to be concerned about regarding an immense dumping of heat trapping gasses into the atmosphere that is now at least 6 times faster than at any time in the deep history of life on Earth.

The shady clouds, in other words, would save us from ourselves.

Not so fast, said Dr. Andrew Dressler who in this paper and this paper recently defended consensus climate science from the cloudy claims of confusionists. Dressler, like mainstream climate science, assumed at least a small degree of positive feedback from changes to clouds and atmospheric water vapor loading. And his observational findings were consistent with an equilibrium climate sensitivity (ECS), or a one century rate of warming, in the range of 2.0 to 4.5 degrees Celsius for each doubling of CO2 (consistent with a multi-century warming [ESS] in the range of 4 to 9 C for each doubling of CO2 — or about a 6 C average).

New Study Finds Changes to Clouds are an Amplifying Feedback

But now, a new study has found that the picture is not quite so rosy as some claimed. The study, led by Dr. Kevin Trenberth, found that net changes to clouds and related additions of water vapor to the upper atmosphere is a positive or amplifying feedback to human caused warming. In other words, the way human heat alters clouds and the related hydrological cycle results in yet more heat being trapped by the Earth System.

This confirms Dr. Dressler’s work and raises a rather unpleasant question — if we have an added heat feedback from clouds under a regime of Earth Systems warming, then how strong is it?

Trenberth notes in an interview published today in The Guardian:

What we do find is that if one looks at tropospheric average temperature rather than surface temperature, then there is a much stronger relationship with energy flow at the top of the Earth’s atmosphere. We are able to find a water vapor signal that is clearly a positive feedback.

Climate Sensitivity Needle May Tilt Toward Upper Range of Estimates

This is somewhat unhappy news.

What it means is that the Earth System is at least as sensitive as climate models suggest. But, even worse, there is a chance that the Earth System may be closer to the upper range of climate sensitivity estimates. It means that accumulation of heat in the atmosphere, in glaciers and in the ocean may happen somewhat faster than consensus models predict and that geophysical changes may, consequently, be greater and more catastrophic.

Whether model simulation of climate sensitivity will need to be altered has not, as yet, been determined. The study is now very new and it will take some time for the more recent data to wash out in the model projections.

But what can be plainly stated is that fossil fuel industry funded voices of false comfort have again been proven dreadfully wrong and that there is some risk that the situation may be even more dangerous than current science anticipates. As such, there is absolutely no reason for further delays in policy action and a very rapid draw-down to zero human carbon emissions.

    "The company that makes the particulates is some offshoot of Halliburton and connected to Cheney and all the neocons are counting on it to do serious damage on a global level. It will reduce the population but TPTB will retreat underground because they have bunkers everywhere."

    HA-HA-HAAAH!!!  Yeah, like "living" underground is somehow gonna SAVE the mthrf*ckrz's SORRY LITTLE ASSES?? 

  2. Marc says:

    With regard to Mr Levermann's article, this otherwise erudite fellow, and a so-called climate scientist, frames his entire argument as if geoengineering has not yet been tried or deployed. Really? Are you fucking kidding me? You mean to tell me that this climate scientist, with his command of the science and many credentials, has condescended to write an article that will only serve to hoodwink many thousands of people into believing that "sulphate aerosols" is not the solution to warming? As if this is still only on the drawing board and under consideration by the powers that be? Ridiculous in the extreme. No wonder, then, why so many are confused, indifferent or openly hostile to the "wild notion" that geoengineering is in full force. With the continual release of such articles to the public in ever-more high profile venues (HuffPost), I question the real intent behind an article such as this. Maybe it IS a step in the direction of greater overall public awareness of the issue, but why are such so-called "climate scientists" not already letting loose the REAL AND TOTAL TRUTH? No one will convince me this Mr. Levermann somehow magically isn't aware already of the magnitude of geoengineering with aerosols going on all over the planet, including his home country, Germany.

      Why are these guys not cutting loose and telling us all the truth?

    I called Riverkeeper dot org to ask them if they've been monitoring aluminum levels in the Hudson River basin.  If we don't have a baseline, how do we know how the levels are changing?  Does anyone have any data showing soil aluminum levels from thirty years ago versus today?

    • Dane Wigington says:

      Hello Gary, soil ph baselines are often available and can be useful for showing changes depending on what the historical ph values have been. In the Pacific Northwest where forest floor ph values were in the 5.0 to 5.5 range, we are now seeing an escalation of ph toward alkaline of some 10 to 12 times. Other than ph values, precipitation tests are advised to reveal the heavy metals falling on us although we now have a number of major labs giving questionable test results and radically raising their “minimum detection levels”.

  4. Diana Moss says:

    The earthquakes and volcanic  eruptions are absolutely devastating, the amount of deaths and devastation is beyond description.  The weather manipulation is creating havoc everywhere, including food production, and the health problems are increasing daily.  It is a mass concentration of long term planning that is now being implemented on humanity from every direction.  When the dust settles I have to wonder when the perpetrators crawl out from their bunkers what will be left and how will they use their collective ill-gotten gains with no one left to influence.  However, with more and more foresighted persons climbing on board there is still a chance to change direction and save a planet that will be sustainable without annihilating humanity.  It is a big job for us but with the guidance and education being provided for us by Dane and his contemporaries it can and will be done!

  5. Bella_Fantasia says:

    Anyone who has spent time in the Arctic fully understands that clouds hold in the surface heat.  The clear winter nights are always cold to extremely frigid.  When a front comes in with clouds and moisture usually the temperature warms up near freezing in order for snow to fall.  If there are strong winds and blizzard conditions, of course it will be colder due to the wind chill.  This dynamic is so obvious here.

    In Anchorage we're often under smeary clouds.  We miss the warm, bright yellow sunshine and the deep blue skies.  We're sick of the stripped ozone and blinding glare.  After every "cooling" event the rebound warming is obvious.

    Other than weather warfare and financial futures schemes, I've come to the conclusion this is mainly about electromagnetic weapons and their large family of evil cousins.  Certainly earthquakes, tsunamis and tornadoes are not insignificant.  T J Coles article from 2010 connects the dots very well, so I've been sharing it since I read it last week. 

    Like others here, I'm wondering about Nepal's devastating earthquake.  I'm looking into the political activity there.  There's some evidence even our 1964 earthquake had been provoked.  It's discussed here, and well worth reading.

    I just watched this video for the first time, what a joke these "engineers" are doing to us. Why hasen't this been disclosed to us? I've been following this issue for the past few years since noticing the heat in summer under a gross muggy white haze. My family thought I was nuts but now are slowly coming around. this vid is on youtube type " busted pilot forgets to turn off chemtrails while landing " I don't think it's on geoengineeringwatch.org yet, please post it widely to those you love. I live in B.C. the pacific northwest and notice spraying daily, mostly to the west and south (us) which confirms Danes' study of the use of wind currents and jet streams. Where can we find the poor mans formula to chelate this jusk from ourselves. I've been trying hot epsom salts and citrus and ginger baths with some success.

    where is the senate committee hearing on this???  Great website and devotion, but unless this is in the hands of folks who can make this change….what can happen in that regard?  I sign each and every petition….share on my FB pg, all 174 of my friends, only 25 of them ever respond to much of anything….frustrating news.

  8. awake says:

    in the Swedish news it was stated that around 50 scientists , experts etc travelled to Nepal a week ago to prepare the area for a catastrophe, not knowing that it would only be days away. if that doesnt make you suspicious nothing will. also we had the Chilean volcano eruption prior to the earthquake, guess they are stepping things up already.

    This video is funny, whatever our views on Obama and Geoengineering.  Pity the situation is so serious.

    @Mushroom…Excellent and I wholeheartedly agree with your ancient future observations!

  11. Lakotah says:

    Years ago when I noticed that the glare from the deck around our swimming pool wasn't so bright anymore, I began to ponder this scenario where heat is being trapped under this man made layer of the atmosphere. So this research by Dr's Dressler and Trenbetter is no surprise to me. Boy, their really smart to figure this out. Pfffff. I wonder how much of this crap that has been sprayed world wide has ended up in the upper layers of the earths atmosphere that will with no doubt be there for centuries and will continue to effect this earth?

    I found it interesting in Dinesh D' Souza's latest movie "If there was no America" how many times chemtrails were in the skies. Just the same as how often I see them on Wikipedia, Vimeo and in documentaries. It seems as though it's accepted as normal to see those long trails everywhere. I find that quite interesting, no, alarming, that more people don't get what's going on.

    As long as people like John Heckscher the project manager for HAARP, are still around, this earth will continue to die.

    As the ongoing onslaught of extreme weather happens daily with off the charts data. The tornado's last night in DFW Texas area was bizarre to say the least. They had softball size hail with a comma shaped super cell. 

    The heat wave continues in south Florida as temps break all time records. The temps today from the everglades south will be in the 100's. The ongoing drought continues in California with no relief in sight. 

    The earthquake in Nepal was very devastating as the quake was very shallow in depth.

  13. Michel B says:

    The options are clear and limited: Stop all the current SRM/SAG and HAARP activities, reduce and eventually severely limit CO2 production, start sensible CO2 sequestration with reforestation, biochar and whatever else that safely removes CO2 from the atmosphere.

    But how to get to these steps? We are currently doing the opposite en masse to what we should be doing. I am currently spreading the word that if we all knew how bad the situation was we would stop producing CO2 real quick.

    Critical mass within the population is needed to force authorities to change those aspects of our current technologies. Many viable alternatives are available right now. We just have to put them in place. This is calling for a massive transition phase in how we think and how we live. We are needing to do it in a hurry without knowing that.

    • SD says:

      Excellent comments by Michael B.  We need some major and well-known scientists to come forward soon and seriously warn Americans to get things rolling. The total lack of recognition of the issue (Geoengineering) by academics and major scientists is maddening.

  14. Pat in SF says:

    Does anybody know or think the earthquake in Nepal was HAARP induced like the killer Quake of the Japanese coast and the Fukashima meltdown? The timing is very questionable with hundreds of people killed and stranded on Mt Everest? My prayers go out to the Nepalese people during this tragic event. 

     

    • Dane Wigington says:

      Hello Pat, the fact that the US military is already moving in under the guise of “aid” is reason for suspicion.

    • Michel B says:

      That was my first thought when I heard of the disaster.

    • KATHLEEN says:

      I believe it was an attack!  I didn't know anyone else was thinking the same….

       

    • SD says:

      I'm also in the "seismic weapon" camp. Buildings that were hundreds of years old have collapsed.  We're seeing too many mega quakes lately.

  15. There's a certain bizarre logic to adding more cloud cover to reduce atmospheric heating. It makes about as much sense as adding a few more layers of blankets to your bed cause the room gets too hot in Summer… Hello???  I guess we need to fund more scientific studies to figure out where the heating problem is…

    Mother Nature has already figured out a perfect response to our military adventures. As they say in the hallowed air-conditioned halls of Nirvana: Extinction is…

  16. Gene Maynard says:

    There are people in the world who are wholly consumed with a lust for power and control over all others. They are incapable of outward compassion as all of their compassion is expressed inwardly. They know best and feel constantly persecuted by us lesser beings. Their ability to persuade lies in a pathos quality that knows neither logic nor reason. All challenges to their world view are seen as completely unfounded and therefore must originate in minds inferior to their own. They owe no truth to those who are incapable of receiving it anyway, and they owe no explanation to anyone other than their peers who are just as sick as they are.

    Evil minds relish in the attention of those they consider to be inferior to them and thus incapable of ever understanding their genius. Hitler said, “Do not compare yourself to others, if you do you are insulting yourself”. He also said, “What luck for rulers that men do not think”. Ergo, men who think become rulers; I alone think therefore I alone rule. The spectrum of human reasoning, whether deductive or inductive appeals only to reasonable minds; minds capable of considering truth outside of self. The very nature of unadulterated evil makes it to be the sole possessor of all reason and all truth. All challenges to them simply become another confirmation of their genius.

    Our only hope is to implore the aid of the one who has given us the grace to dwell in reason and truth. These qualities are but two of the rivers that flow from the fountain head of love. We all are products of this love evidenced in our untiring quest for reasonableness. 

    • Mushroom says:

      Yeah they are called parasites. The creator stands on his own judgment. The parasite follows the opinions of others. The creator thinks, the parasite copies. The creator produces, the parasite loots. The creator's concern is the harnessing of nature – the parasite's concern is the harnessing of men. The creator requires independence, he neither serves nor rules. He deals with men by free exchange and voluntary choice. The parasite seeks power, he wants to bind all men together in common action and common slavery. He claims that man is only a tool for the use of others. That he must think as they think, act as they act, and live is selfless, joyless servitude to any need but his own. Look at history. Everything thing we have, every great achievement has come from the independent work of some independent mind. Every horror and destruction came from attempts to force men into a herd of brainless, soulless robots. Without personal rights, without personal ambition, without will, hope, or dignity. It is an ancient conflict. It has another name: the individual against the collective- from the Fountainhead

  17. Marc says:

    Let me see if I have this right. This article purports to illustrate that increased cloud cover, due to planetary heating=water vapor etc., is turning out to be the exact opposite of what would be the best (or better) case scenario as far as overall global warming is concerned. Would it be correct to assume that the hierarchy of so-called climate scientists who are the "brains" behind all the geoengineering somehow missed this truth? You mean to tell me that these presumably highly trained scientists are gambling on some kind of "theory" that SRM by aerosol/cloud manufacturing is the fix to planetary warming? Really? Albedo enhancement? The simple science behind cloud cover trapping heat has been known for generations. Now admittedly, the "clouds" these monsters are creating are not only simple water vapor, but incorporate a complex recipe of substances, many of which are allegedly designed to increase albedo. The whole goddamn thing seems like a total crapshoot by any measure. This is yet another reason why I lean toward seeing another (sinister) agenda here.

    • jojobean says:

      There aren't any honest engineers involved in these decisions. It's all about making money. The company that makes the particulates is some offshoot of Halliburton and connected to Cheney and all the neocons are counting on it to do serious damage on a global level. It will reduce the population but TPTB will retreat underground because they have bunkers everywhere.

    If you are waiting for any of this to be in the New York Times, check their history on wiki,  I just read it.  They were sued for exposing corruption in the Nixon administration.  Now they can't say what the defense department is doing or they will get sued.  No newspaper, no politician and no employee will tell you this is going on.  If someone on a sewer board tells you they have to treat more and more aluminum in the water. . . listen to him and connect the dots.
