Here’s an interesting question. “Why are U.S. Congressmen and Senators silent on geoengineering?” There are a large number of men and women in the United States House of Representatives and Senate who claim that climate change or global warming is a hoax. In other words, these men and women elected politicians believe there is no such thing as climate change. So, let’s see if we can make some sense of this owned belief and the practice of geoengineering, which is being carried out to stop or reduce global temperatures’ rising.
Well, there is no way to make any sense of the lack of outrage about unnecessary expenditures on geoengineering coming from those climate change-denying men and women politicians.
Through the years we hear about awards going to particularly outrageous spending by the United States government. Like spending $250,000 on studying the mating habits of some odd type of insect, or $400,000,000 on a highway that goes miles into an uninhabited forest only to end in a cul-de-sac, or $1.77 million on a statue of Santa Claus in Florida, etc.
You get my drift.
For some odd reason, there have been no media plastered Washington, D.C. political speeches of outrage on the “wasteful spending on geoengineering, which is stopping a climate change problem that does not even exist!” You would think that the climate change deniers in Congress would be all over the issue of taxpayer money being wasted on spraying metals from planes going on all across America. I have yet to become aware of the amount of taxpayer money that is being spent on geoengineering, but the outrage coming from the climate change deniers is easily tabulated on the accountant’s calculator – zero.
Why is there total silence coming from the climate change deniers? Because the geoengineering option maintains their status-quo.
Geoengineering (weather modification to combat climate change) has been allowed to continue without a peep of protest from the climate change deniers because nothing then has to change. Big gas, oil, coal, and nuclear corporations and their owners can conduct business as usual. The enormous political, financial, and market power remains where it has always been – no need to fuss with carbon taxes and fees, lifestyle changes, increased production of renewable energies supplied free from the sun and wind, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and best of all, the American taxpayers foot the geoengineering bill.
The silence becomes simple to understand now.
So, we find massive amounts of aluminum, barium, strontium, silver oxides, fluoride and God only knows what else being dropped from planes, into the atmosphere to stop the sun’s rays from reaching the Earth. In effect the decision was made, without the knowledge and consent of American citizens, to massively pollute the Earth’s environment, including all humans, animals, and plants. Drive those SUV’s to the gas station, fill them up, and ride. Nothing to worry about. This technology is taking care of it.
With regard to geoengineering, humanity needs a major-league timeout.
Firstly, geoengineering is a giant experiment, with both known and unknown consequences. How many of you are aware that 193 nations signed on to a United Nations Biological Diversity agreement banning geoengineering? And that the United States was one of three nations which declined to sign the agreement? The situation is one where nations which want to conduct huge geoengineering experiments do not need any consent from the United Nations.
It is time for scientists to come forward and tell the truth about the science behind weather modification experiments. At this point there are scientists suffering from arrogance and hubris in geoengineering marriage with equally arrogant and hubristic billionaire owners of fossil fuels corporations. For a small handful of people to play god, while risking the health and well-being of all living things on Earth in the process, is not right. Humanity simply must collectively demand an end to geoengineering.
So, the situation now is one where the choice has been made to use technology, from the same people who caused the climate crisis in the first place, instead of making the hard choice to change the amounts of fossil fuels that become consumed on Earth. Just allow a few people to adjust the planetary thermostat, while keeping things like they were, without regard for the tremendous damage being done to all life forms.
If the experiments don’t work simply enlarge them. Instead of 50,000 square kilometers/miles, run the “experiment” over 500,000 square kilometer/miles. Pound the surface of the oceans with iron nanoparticles so algae can consume the Earth’s carbon dioxide and sink to the oceans’ floors. This is ocean fertilization, one the proposed options for fighting greenhouse gases. Another proposal calls for “artificial volcanoes”, where sulfurs are distributed up giant pipes into the atmosphere to block the sun’s rays from the Earth.
All these options, actually being considered by national governments around the world, would not require any changes for fossil fuels industries, are the cheapest options (paid by taxpayers), proposed by the same people who caused the crisis in the first place, who ask humanity to “trust us to fix this now”. Go back to watching the ball games and reality shows, we’ve got this all taken care of.
The United Nations General Assembly has to be given the power to vote on the continuance or curtailment of geoengineering actions. There needs to be a debate at the UN on this issue as soon as possible, with the representative of each member nation given a say on the matter. Geoengineering technologies are dangerous because no scientist or politician can predict the outcome(s) from their use. How does the human race know, once this technology has become accepted, when national leaders will use it for military or selfish political reasons?
In the following video, a man well-known by all who have done any research on geoengineering, Dane Wigington, talks with Russ Tanner, in a film made by John Massaria. Thanks to Lewey7777 @ YouTube. Mr. Wigington makes the point that geoengineering is destroying the Earth’s ozone layer, resulting in a powerful system of feed-back loops where continued spraying destroys more of the ozone layer, leading to more Arctic ice melts, leading to less of the sun’s heat being reflected away from the planet, increasing the sun’s heating of the Earth’s oceans, and occurring again and again. This process, according to Dane Wigington, will continue with horrific consequences, the worst being the release of tremendous levels of methane now frozen on polar ocean floors.
He is giving humanity the direst warning possible. Whether the human race will understand soon enough and end all forms of geoengineering, allowing the Earth to heal in ways that are of nature – we shall see.
