“We’re Firing Trillion Watt Lasers into the Sky”: Top Scientist Admits to Weather Modification on CBS

weatherweather

In the aftermath of the devastation wrought by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma, and Hurricane Jose brewing in the Atlantic, many people are looking for answers as to the increasingly volatile weather being witnessed.

And while climate change is one potential cause, there are other lesser known activities that could potentially be playing a role in the manifestation of these weather anomalies.

While weather modification and geo-engineering are still somewhat taboo subjects to the mainstream, often considered to be in the realm of conspiracy theory, there is a significant body of academic research and science that confirms that these technologies not only exist but are being operationalized.

No, the Free Thought Project is not claiming the government, nor anyone else is making hurricanes or actively controlling the weather. We are only presenting this information because it exists and people should be aware that it exists.

In a segment aired on CBS in 2013, respected scientist Dr. Michio Kaku, a physics professor at City College of New York, discussed – with Charlie Rose and Norah O’Donnell – the science of weather manipulation.

During the interview Kaku, in discussing the experiments with weather modification notes that “We’re shooting trillion watt lasers into the sky,” referencing the use of lasers to induce changes to naturally occurring weather phenomena.

Later in the conversation, Kaku briefly touches on the history of weather modification that has been carried out for decades by the government – with the CBS hosts quickly interrupting him to note these programs were only “alleged.”

Of course, these hosts must be ignorant of the declassified history of “Operation Popeye,” which was a weather manipulation program enacted during the Vietnam War as a means of creating ongoing monsoon conditions in an effort to impeded the Viet Cong’s mobility in the region.

This is no “conspiracy theory.”

In fact, research published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences specifically notes that laser beams create plasma channels in air, which in turn, cause ice to form.

Professor Jean-Pierre Wolf and Dr. Jerome Kasparian, both biophotonics experts at the University of Geneva, actually organized a conference at the World Meteorological Organization to discuss how powerful laser pulses can be used to generate changes in the atmosphere that influence the weather.

Wolf and Kasparian said:

“Under the conditions of a typical storm cloud, in which ice and supercooled water coexist, no direct influence of the plasma channels on ice formation or precipitation processes could be detected.

“Under conditions typical for thin cirrus ice clouds, however, the plasma channels induced a surprisingly strong effect of ice multiplication.

“Within a few minutes, the laser action led to a strong enhancement of the total ice particle number density in the chamber by up to a factor of 100, even though only a 10−9 fraction of the chamber volume was exposed to the plasma channels.

“The newly formed ice particles quickly reduced the water vapour pressure to ice saturation, thereby increasing the cloud optical thickness by up to three orders of magnitude.”

Adding credence to the idea of scientists using geo-engineering technology to manipulate the weather, according to the MIT Technology Review:

A pair of Harvard climate scientists are preparing small-scale atmospheric experiments that could offer insights into the feasibility and risks of deliberately altering the climate to ease global warming.

They would be among the earliest official geoengineering-related experiments conducted outside of a controlled laboratory or computer model, underscoring the growing sense of urgency among scientists to begin seriously studying the possibility as the threat of climate change mounts.

Sometime next year, Harvard professors David Keith and Frank Keutsch hope to launch a high-altitude balloon, tethered to a gondola equipped with propellers and sensors, from a site in Tucson, Arizona. After initial engineering tests, the “StratoCruiser” would spray a fine mist of materials such as sulfur dioxide, alumina, or calcium carbonate into the stratosphere. The sensors would then measure the reflectivity of the particles, the degree to which they disperse or coalesce, and the way they interact with other compounds in the atmosphere.

Another top American climate researcher – Professor Alan Robock from Rutgers – says that the CIA is looking into weather modification as a form of warfare.

As reported in The Independent:

A senior American climate scientist has spoken of the fear he experienced when US intelligence services apparently asked him about the possibility of weaponising the weather as a major report on geo-engineering is to be published this week.

Professor Alan Robock stated that three years ago, two men claiming to be from the CIA had called him to ask whether experts would be able to tell if hostile forces had begun manipulating the US’s weather, though he suspected the purpose of the call was to find out if American forces could meddle with other countries’ climates instead.

During a debate on the use of geo-engineering to combat climate change, at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in San Jose, California, Prof Robock said: “I got a phone call from two men who said we work as consultants for the CIA and we’d like to know if some other country was controlling our climate, would we know about it?

“I told them, after thinking a little bit, that we probably would because if you put enough material in the atmosphere to reflect sunlight we would be able to detect it and see the equipment that was putting it up there.

“At the same time I thought they were probably also interested in if we could control somebody else’s climate, could they detect it?”

Professor Robock, who has investigated the potential risks and benefits of using stratospheric particles to simulate the climate-changing effects of volcanic eruptions, said he felt “scared” when the approach was made.

“I’d learned of lots of other things the CIA had done that haven’t followed the rules and I thought that wasn’t how I wanted my tax money spent. I think this research has to be in the open and international so there isn’t any question of it being used for hostile purposes.”

Professor Robock’s concerns come as a major report on geo-engineering is to be published this week by the US National Academy of Sciences. Among the report’s list of sponsors is the “US intelligence community”, which includes Nasa, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and the US Department of Energy.

The professor alleges that the CIA told a colleague of his that it wanted to fund the report, but claimed that it did not want this fact to be too obvious – he added that the CIA is “a major funder” of the report which “makes me really worried about who is going to be in control”.

He claimed the US government had a proven history of using the weather in a hostile way, citing the action of seeding clouds during the Vietnam War to muddy the Ho Chi Minh foot-trail and attempt to cut it off, as it was used as a supply route but the north Vietnamese.

He claimed the CIA had also seeded clouds over Cuba “to make it rain and ruin the sugar harvest”.

While certain powerful constituencies are well aware of the extremely powerful forces that can be unleased through weather modification technology, these same groups would like to keep the general public unaware of these technologies and programs.

Whether these recent weather phenomena may, or may not, have anything to do with weather manipulation technology, make no mistake that weather modification is a real and practiced science – and is no conspiracy theory.

Trump slams Sessions as he reportedly considers firing his own AG

President Trump continued to attack on Attorney General Jeff Sessions early Tuesday, railing against the nation’s top law enforcement officer in a series of caustic tweets.

Among other things, the president accused Sessions of taking a “very weak position” on Hillary Clinton’s supposed crimes and the leaking of classified intelligence.

The Twitter barrage comes as both the Associated Press and Washington Post report that Trump is considering firing Sessions, who was the first sitting U.S. senator to endorse the celebrity real estate mogul during the campaign.

But Trump is upset that Sessions recused himself from all campaign-related investigations, including the probe into whether any Trump associates colluded with Russia during the campaign. Sessions recused himself in March after it was revealed he had undisclosed meetings with the Russian ambassador.

And though the campaign ended more than eight months ago, Trump has repeatedly tried to turn the Russia spotlight back to Clinton.

During the campaign, Trump constantly attacked Clinton as “crooked” and hinted if elected he might direct his attorney general to investigate her.

But after his election, Trump appeared to back away from the idea, saying, “I don’t want to hurt the Clintons. I really don’t. … I think we have to get the focus of the country into looking forward.”

That appears to have changed. On Tuesday morning, Trump also questioned why Sessions is not probing what Politico reported in January were Ukrainian government attempts to help Clinton’s campaign undermine him during the 2016 presidential election. He tagged Fox News host Sean Hannity, a loyal Trump ally, in the tweet.

Last week, Trump told the New York Times that he would not have appointed Sessions if he knew the Alabama lawmaker would recuse himself from the federal investigation into Russia’s election meddling.

“Sessions should have never recused himself, and if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job and I would have picked somebody else,” Trump said.

On Monday, Trump publicly described Sessions as “beleaguered.”

“So why aren’t the Committees and investigators, and of course our beleaguered A.G., looking into Crooked Hillarys crimes & Russia relations?” the commander in chief tweeted.

If Trump were to fire Sessions, the political fallout could be even greater than his sudden termination of FBI Director James Comey. Sessions is a fellow immigration hardliner who is well-liked by Trump’s base and supported by former GOP senators.

And Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who has also drawn Trump’s public ire, would become acting attorney general. Rosenstein appointed special counsel Robert Mueller to lead the Russia investigation after Trump fired Comey.

In an interview with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt on Tuesday morning, Anthony Scaramucci, Trump’s newly installed communications director, was asked why the president doesn’t simply fire Sessions.

“He’s obviously frustrated,” Scaramucci said.

“It’s clear the president wants Sessions gone, isn’t it?” Hewitt asked.

“I have an enormous amount of respect for the attorney general,” Scaramucci replied. “But I do know the president pretty well, and if there’s this level of tension in the relationship that’s public, you’re probably right.”

On “Fox & Friends,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that Trump’s frustration with Sessions “hasn’t gone away and, you know, I don’t think it will.”

Publishing Exec Blames Firing on Right-Wing Sting

[6/26/17/MATTHEW RENDA]  A victim of a Project Veritas sting sued her employer for firing her after the right-wing activist group published a video saying she hates kids and only sells textbooks for the money.

Dianne Barrow, a former sales executive for publishing giant Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, claims in a June 21 complaint that the company defamed her and fired her after two members of a right-wing group called Project Veritas filmed her making allegedly derogatory comments about the federal Common Core educational standards.

“HMH failed to use reasonable care to determine the truth or falsity of statements contained in the video of plaintiff, which was full of headlines, captions, graphics overlays, illustrations and cartoon characters purporting to represent plaintiff,” the complaint, abbreviating Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. “The video was edited into and/or with similarly secretly-recorded conversations with other secretly-recorded victims of Project Veritas with short segments of conversations edited to distort the true meaning of plaintiff’s actual words.”

Project Veritas is the brain-child of James O’Keefe, a conservative activist who gained notoriety in 2009 when he dressed in retro-pimp garb and purported to have gotten advice from the liberal community-organizing group Acorn on how to run a tax-free brothel for underage sex workers.

Though several outside investigators ultimately cleared Acorn of any wrongdoing — finding that O’Keefe’s sting footage had been heavily and misleadingly edited — the nonprofit had already been bankrupted at that point by a loss of its funding.

Barrow says she fell victim to Project Veritas in August 2015 when she met with two of its undercover operatives, who were posing as book buyers supportive of Common Core. Common Core is a nationwide program that attempts to standardize what students should know in terms of mathematics and language arts at each grade level.

The program is controversial in education, however, and conservatives in particular are critical of the standards initiative as federal overreach.

In the seven-and-a-half-minute video featuring Barrow, which was recorded without her knowledge, the agents ask her if she is in the business for the kids.

“I hate kids,” she says, laughing, and then says she is in the industry for the money.

Project Veritas says this is evidence that Common Core is a broad conspiracy that is more about enriching the textbook industry than providing children with a quality education.

The footage of Barrow is interspersed with video of two teachers from Brooklyn who make similar claims about Common Core being perpetrated by the textbook industry and its army of lobbyists.

Barrow says she forgot about the interview until Jan. 16 of last year, when human resources for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt called her out of a conference meeting in Florida and promptly fired her.

Days later, she told the Washington Post that her comments were misconstrued. The publisher’s CEO also issued a statement soon after the video was published.

“Houghton Mifflin Harcourt is as appalled by these comments as we expect readers will be,” CEO Linda Zecher said. “These statements in no way reflect the views of HMH and the commitment of our over 4,000 employees who dedicate their lives to serving teachers and students every day. The individual who made these comments is a former employee who was with HMH for less than a year.”

Barrow said this statement effectively affirmed the contents of the video and tarnished her character and career, when HMH had an obligation to look into the veracity of the video.

Barrow seeks punitive damages.

She is represented by Jeffrey Malek of Malek & Malek based in Torrance, California.
