Conspiracy Theory Now Conspiracy Fact, as Congress Holds Hearings on Weather Manipulation

geoengineeringgeoengineering

Washington, D.C. – Geoengineering is finally going mainstream as the U.S. House Subcommittee on Environment and Subcommittee on Energy Hearing, on Wednesday, held the first House hearing about the science that until now has generally been considered a “conspiracy theory” and relegated to the fringe’s of society by the Praetorian Guard mainstream media — controlled by the ruling power-elite oligarchy.

The controversial subject of climate engineering or weather modification – which was popularized, and oversimplified with the term “chem-trails” – is stepping from the shadows and into the light of public scrutiny for the first time.

The congressional hearing, titled “Geoengineering: Innovation, Research, and Technology,” was attended by members of the House committees as well as representatives of think tanks, academics, and researcher scientists to discuss the future of geoengineering research.

Participants in Wednesday’s hearing include Full Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas), Environment Subcommittee Chairman Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), and Energy Subcommittee Chairman Randy Weber (R-Texas). Testimony was presented by Dr. Phil Rasch, chief scientist for climate science, Laboratory Fellow, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory; Dr. Joseph Majkut, director of climate policy at the Niskanen Center; Dr. Douglas MacMartin, senior research associate, Cornell University; and Ms. Kelly Wanser, principal director, Marine Cloud Brightening Project, Joint Institute for the Study of the Atmosphere and Ocean, University of Washington.

Interestingly, “Chemtrails” have long been the talk of conspiracy theories with massive amounts of disinformation being posted all over the internet including fake studies and photos. However, several real studies show that some ‘seeding’ or geoengineering may have already taken place – indicating that secret projects to test the science have likely already taken place.

A study published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health suggests that geoengineering has already begun and that at least one substance being used is a toxic by-product of coal burning called coal-fly ash.

“The widespread, intentional and increasingly frequent chemical emplacement in the troposphere has gone unidentified and unremarked in the scientific literature for years. The author presents evidence that toxic coal combustion fly ash is the most likely aerosolized particulate sprayed by tanker-jets for geoengineering, weather-modification and climate-modification purposes and describes some of the multifold consequences on public health.”

The hearings largely operated as a coming out party for the field, and as an opportunity for the industry to attempt to solicit funding from the Trump administration to advance basic research.

A 2013 report by the Congressional Research Service, titled Geoengineering: Governance and Technology Policy provided a brief overview of the “geoengineering” technology:

The term ‘geoengineering’ describes this array of technologies that aim, through large-scale and deliberate modifications of the Earth’s energy balance, to reduce temperatures and counteract anthropogenic climate change. Most of these technologies are at the conceptual and research stages, and their effectiveness at reducing global temperatures has yet to be proven. Moreover, very few studies have been published that document the cost, environmental effects, socio-political impacts, and legal implications of geoengineering. If geoengineering technologies were to be deployed, they are expected to have the potential to cause significant transboundary effects.

 

In general, geoengineering technologies are categorized as either a carbon dioxide removal (CDR) method or a solar radiation management (SRM) (or albedo-modification) method. CDR methods address the warming effects of greenhouse gases by removing carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere. CDR methods include ocean fertilization, and carbon capture and sequestration. SRM methods address climate change by increasing the reflectivity of the Earth’s atmosphere or surface. Aerosol injection and space-based reflectors are examples of SRM methods. SRM methods do not remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere, but can be deployed faster with relatively immediate global cooling results compared to CDR methods.

During Wednesday’s hearing, the potential need to set up a regulatory structure within which experiments would be allowed, at a set scale, was discussed.

California congressman Jerry McNerney said he plans to soon introduce legislation to direct the Energy Department and other federal agencies to support two National Academy of Sciences reports on geoengineering. One would develop a research agenda for solar reflection methods; the other would provide guidance for governance of resulting experiments.

According to a report by investigative journalist Derrick Broze, writing for Activist Post:

“The push for discussion of geoengineering from the Trump administration should come as no surprise. Back in January 2017, Activist Post reported that ‘the U.S. Global Change Research Program quietly recommended new studies looking into two specific areas of research involving geoengineering.’ With the release of their report, the GCRP became the first scientists in the federal government to formally recommend studies involving geoengineering.”

Previously, we reported on Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, John O. Brennan, addressing the topic of geoengineering while discussing instability and transnational threats to global security at a meeting with the Council on Foreign Relations in late June 2016.

During his long-winded talk of threats to US interests and how the largely CIA-created ISIL threat is impacting the world, Brennan brought up the topic of geoengineering.

Another example is the array of technologies—often referred to collectively as geoengineering—that potentially could help reverse the warming effects of global climate change. One that has gained my personal attention is stratospheric aerosol injection, or SAI, a method of seeding the stratosphere with particles that can help reflect the sun’s heat, in much the same way that volcanic eruptions do.

Brennan went on to echo the calls from some scientists who have called for aerial spraying.

An SAI program could limit global temperature increases, reducing some risks associated with higher temperatures and providing the world economy additional time to transition from fossil fuels. The process is also relatively inexpensive—the National Research Council estimates that a fully deployed SAI program would cost about $10 billion yearly.

Every expert to testify at Wednesday’s hearing noted that geoengineering techniques shouldn’t be substituted for efforts to reduce greenhouse gases and prepare for climate change impacts. Additionally, a letter, signed by 24 scientists and environmental advocates, stated that “any consideration of a Federally funded and coordinated research program into geoengineering must be in the context of a strategic portfolio of responses to climate change.”

According to The Sacramento Bee:

One idea gaining traction is to seed marine clouds with salt water or other particles, increasing their potential to reflect solar rays, cooling the earth. Its part of nascent and controversial branch of science known as “sunlight reflection methods,” or SRM.

 

“We think SRN could buy time for other (carbon-reduction) measures to be put in place,” said Philip J. Rasch, chief climate scientist for the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland, Washington.

“If the worst case scenarios of global warming come to pass, these technologies could be used to help people, saving lives and economies from the worst effects of climate change,” added Joseph Majkut, director of climate policy at the Niskanen Center, a Washington D.C. think tank.

 

Rasch and Majkut are two climate specialists who testified Wednesday before the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, which held a subcommittee hearing on the potential for “geoengineering” — a catchall for proposals to directly cool the atmosphere or pull carbon emissions from it.

 

Geoengineering, which includes SRM, has been discussed by scientists since the 1960s, but with mixed enthusiasm, said Rasch. Some experts fear that seeding clouds could have unintended effects, such as impacts on rainfall.

Scientists at the University of Washington formed the Marine Cloud Brightening Project, in an effort to bolster financial support for basic research, in hopes of running small-scale tests of adding particles to clouds.

In addition to seeding marine clouds, the team is also looking into what’s known as “stratospheric aerosol geoengineering,” which involves injecting reflective particles into the upper atmosphere, similar to a volcano during major eruptions, to produce a regional cooling effect.

During Wednesday’s House hearing Committee Chairman Smith noted that geoengineering “could have positive effects on the Earth’s atmosphere,” but cautioned “we have a lot to learn.”

Although Smith intimated that geoengineering could be preferable to increased regulation, stating, “While we are not sure this is plausible, some scientists believe it could achieve substantial environmental benefits at a cheaper cost than regulations,” he acknowledged the potential for “unintended consequences of geoengineering.”

Smith highlighted the fact that numerous studies have shown a “butterfly effect” whereby altering the climate in one region of the world can have disastrous effects elsewhere on the globe.

“One concern is that brightening clouds could alter rain patterns, making it rain more in some places or less in others,” Smith stated. “We still do not know enough about this subject to thoroughly understand the pros and cons of these types of technologies.”

Kelly Wanser, director of the Marine Cloud Brightening Project, encouraged “governance and regulatory efforts,” and emphasized that oversight should be “rapidly established.”

Joseph Majkut, Director of Climate Policy at The Niskanen Center, said during the hearing that “Congress has already given limited authority to regulate experiments intent on altering the weather, including changing planetary albedo,” but noted, “at this point, those regulations are limited to reporting requirements.”

Majkut called for Congress to implement “significant civil and administrative penalties” and “consider criminal liability” for violating the regulations, and raised the specter of an international governance regime related to geoengineering.

“Congress might also consider whether to extend that criminal liability not only to such experiments originating within or over the United States, but also conducted outside of our borders that result in an impact on the United States,” Majkut stated. “Such considerations would need the input of the diplomatic and international community.”

In a report for Activist Post, Broze noted:

The Niskanen Center is described as a libertarian think-tank aimed at influencing “Washington insiders,” as opposed to the public. The Center takes on issues like the environment and works to influence political leaders. In a recent blog titled “RIGHTLY GOVERNING SOLAR GEOENGINEERING RESEARCH,” Majkut and colleagues wrote about need for “small-scale field tests” and “a domestic regulatory governance structure for research.” Further, The Niskanen Center wrote that national governance structures might serve “as a test-bed for governance ideas” which could “seed discussions on international deployment” of geoengineering over the coming two decades.

 

The hearing’s emphasis on the need for domestic and international governance structures illustrates the uncertainty around how exactly geoengineering will affect neighboring nations and communities. The Carnegie Climate Geoengineering Governance Initiative recently released a statement in support of “well-governed research on geoengineering” and urged governments and other institutions to support the University of Calgary’s recent publication of a Code of Conduct for Responsible Geoengineering Research.

“Geoengineering is a matter for all society, worldwide, as it affects us all,” Carnegie wrote. “This means we need to hear many more voices than currently being heard in the geoengineering debate.”

There is no longer debate that geoengineering is real and that it can involve the injecting or spraying of materials into the atmosphere. While this technology has been slowly developed and deployed in the dark, it is clearly being allowed to be brought into the light of the mainstream now to condition the public for the technology’s operationalization.

It seems the public is largely being left out of the discussion.

Will the public speak up and force their voices to be heard, or will they be bullied into silence by being labeled a conspiracy theorist at the slightest mention of geoengineering?

Please share this story in hopes of waking people up to the fact that geoengineering is not a conspiracy theory, but a scientific reality we should all be fully aware of, and educated about!

Re: Patel-Israel scandal grows as May tries to weather the storm

Quite how long Priti Patel can hold on to her job as a Secretary of State remains to be seen after she has been exposed as a liar over the finer details of her so-called family holiday to Israel over the summer. Not only did she trample over strict guidelines and protocols demanded by the seniority of her office, but she has also attempted to mislead journalists and the wider public over the nature of her trip, which has left her position untenable in the view of many people.

Speculation is rife that a battle of wills is ongoing between Westminster and Tel Aviv over her ministerial future. Even MPs in her own party believe that the International Development Secretary’s days are numbered following new revelations about her trip. It has now emerged, for example, that Patel:

  • Wanted to send development aid money to the Israeli army;
  • Conducted 12 secret meetings with high level Israeli officials;
  • Discussed British government business with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu without Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) officials being present; and
  • Ignored strict government ministerial guidelines demanded of her office.

Patel has already been forced to apologise for holding the 12 previously-undisclosed meetings in Israel in August while on a self-funded “family holiday”. Now she has also been forced into a humiliating U-turn after claiming that Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and the FCO knew about her meetings and trip in advance. Those claims, made to the Guardian newspaper, have been exposed as lies.

However it is her discussion about giving aid to the Israeli military which is bound to cause the greatest furore with all political parties. Israel has the fourth largest army in the world and stands accused of committing war crimes in its three major military offensives against Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip since 2008.

Read: Sitting Priti as minister is protected by Tel Aviv

Moreover, Britain does not recognise Israel’s permanent occupation of the Golan Heights, which it seized from Syria in the 1967 Six Day War. Patel’s desire to give Israel’s army some aid either there or in the occupied Palestinian territories would contravene British government policy.

According to a spokesman for Theresa May’s office in Downing Street, Patel did discuss potential ways to provide medical support for Syrian refugees who are wounded and who cross into the Golan for treatment. “The Israeli army runs field hospitals there to care for Syrians wounded in the civil war. But there is no change in policy in the area. The UK does not provide any financial support to the Israeli army.”

Embarrassingly, Prime Minister Theresa May only learned of Patel’s overseas meetings last Friday. For some reason, neither Patel nor May’s Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu, who was given the red carpet treatment by Downing Street a day earlier, mentioned their August meeting to her. Netanyahu was in London as a guest of the British Prime Minister to mark the centenary of the infamous Balfour Declaration.

As pressure mounted over her future, Patel issued a statement through the Department for International Development admitting her lies to the media about how much Boris Johnson knew of her visit: “This quote may have given the impression that the secretary of state had informed the foreign secretary about the visit in advance. The secretary of state would like to take this opportunity to clarify that this was not the case. The foreign secretary did become aware of the visit, but not in advance of it.”

Patel also said that while “on a family holiday paid for by myself” she “had the opportunity to meet a number of people and organisations. I am publishing a list of who I met.‎ The Foreign and Commonwealth Office was aware of my visit while it was under way‎.

“In hindsight, I can see how my enthusiasm to engage in this way could be misread, and how meetings were set up and reported in a way which did not accord with the usual procedures. I am sorry for this and I apologise for it.”

Read: The UK is quietly changing its policy on Israel and Palestine

The Labour Party has called for an urgent investigation. It is now increasingly clear that Patel broke the ministerial code of conduct but, as May clings on to her position as Prime Minister, there is some speculation that she cannot afford the departure of another government minister — following the resignation of Defence Secretary Sir Michael Fallon — from her weak government.

May has been hamstrung from day one after her disastrous snap election saw the Conservative Party lose its parliamentary majority. Her government is now mired in sleaze and scandal which has left the Prime Minister caught between a rock and a hard place. Having lost Fallon, more are expected to fall before the end of the week as the naming and shaming of so-called sex pests continues in Westminster.

Observers are speculating if she can, like Priti Patel, brazen out the situation over the next few days and how much support, if any, is being given to Patel from Tel Aviv. The International Development Secretary was accompanied to almost all of her meetings during her “family holiday” by the honorary president of the Conservative Friends of Israel lobbying group, Lord Stuart Polak.

While Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson is clearly annoyed that he was kept in the dark about Patel’s secret meetings in Israel, he is preoccupied with other more pressing matters after issuing a misleading statement that could result in a charity worker facing a longer jail sentence in Iran. Johnson told a select committee last week that Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, a British-Iranian mother being held in a notorious Tehran jail, was in Iran training journalists. This is something that her employer has denied vigorously.

However, having been jailed on charges of espionage 18 months ago, Zaghari-Ratcliffe has now been told that she faces fresh charges of attempting to overthrow the Islamic Republic. According to her husband Richard Ratcliffe, she was taken to an unscheduled court hearing where Johnson’s remarks were cited as proof of her guilt.

To add to her woes, Theresa May’s First Secretary of State Damien Green MP is being investigated after pornographic material was found on one of his House of Commons computers. In his defence, Green insists that, “This story is completely untrue and comes from a tainted and untrustworthy source.”

UK: Now is not the ‘right time’ to recognise Palestine

The big dilemma now facing May is if she can afford to keep Priti Patel in her Cabinet. Should she decide to sack her, she would not only weaken her already fragile government but would almost certainly also incur the wrath of Tel Aviv and the pro-Israel lobby.

Watching all of this with more than the usual interest is Professor Manuel Hassassian, the Palestinian Ambassador in London. He said that he is greatly concerned by the “clear breach” of the British government’s ministerial code.

“If the present Conservative Government is committed to a two-state solution and the Secretary of State for International Development, as part of the Government, is truly committed to this, why did she not visit Palestinian officials also?” he told the Evening Standard on Tuesday. “Imagine, though, the uproar if she had done this without the Prime Minister’s knowledge.”

Imagine indeed…

MIT Unveils Framework to ID Extreme-Weather Patterns

SEAN DUFFY–Extreme events, ranging from tsunamis to the rapid extinction of a previously robust wildlife species, often occur unexpectedly, due in large part to their complex nature.

A variety of dynamic factors lead to these bursts of instability, and scientists often employ advanced mathematical formulas to determine whether current or future conditions are likely to result in an extreme event. However, this approach can lead to inaccurate projections that are based on incomplete or misleading details.

To address these limitations, a team of engineers has developed a framework for identifying key patterns that can be used to forecast an extreme event, which they detail in a study published Friday in the journal Science Advances.

“We have applied this framework to turbulent fluid flows, which are the Holy Grail of extreme events,” said co-author Themistoklis Sapsis, an associate professor of mechanical and ocean engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. “They’re encountered in climate dynamics in the form of extreme rainfall, in engineering fluid flows such as stresses around an airfoil, and acoustic instabilities inside gas turbines.

“If we can predict the occurrence of these extreme events, hopefully we can apply some control strategies to avoid them.”

Existing formulas for predicting extreme events rely on a series of initial conditions, or values for specific variables, which researchers use to solve equations under those circumstances. If the results indicate an extreme event, scientists can conclude that some of the conditions or variables could serve as warning signs.

The factors used in these dynamical equations are based on a system’s underlying physics. However, the physics that influence complex systems are often unclear or not fully known, and contain key modeling errors, according to Sapsis.

Equations for systems in which the physics are largely known can produce a significant number of possible outcomes and supposed precursors for extreme events, reflecting the volume of initial conditions used to evaluate these formulas. Some of these precursors, or initial states, might not be applicable to real-world scenarios, leading researchers to focus on factors that never actually materialize.

“If we just blindly take the equations and start looking for initial states that evolve to extreme events, there is a high probability we will end up with initial states that are very exotic, meaning they will never ever occur for any practical situation,” Sapsis said. “So equations contain more information than we really need.”

Scientists have also used available system data to identify key warning signs. As extreme events occur rarely, approaches based solely on existing data would require a massive amount of information over an extended period of time to be able to definitively identify such predictive factors.

The new framework, on the other hand, employs computer algorithms that combine both equations and available data to identify the extreme event precursors that are most likely to occur.

“We are looking at the equations for possible states that have very high growth rates and become extreme events, but they are also consistent with data, telling us whether this state has any likelihood of occurring, or if it’s something so exotic that, yes, it will lead to an extreme event, but the probability of it occurring is basically zero,” Sapsis said.

As such, the framework serves as a filter that removes misleading or theoretically impossible conditions.

The team tested their method on a model of turbulent fluid flow – a prototype system that describes a chaotic fluid, such as the airflow around a jet engine or ocean and atmospheric circulation.

“We used the equations describing the system, as well as some basic properties of the system, expressed through data obtained from a small number of numerical simulations, and we came up with precursors which are characteristic signals, telling us before the extreme event starts to develop, that there is something coming up,” Sapsis said.

To test the accuracy of their approach, the researchers then simulated turbulent fluid flow, looking for precursors that their algorithm predicted. The team found that the precursors led to extreme events between 75 and 99 percent of the time, varying based on the complexity of the fluid flow simulated.

The framework is also general enough to be used on a variety of systems, according to Sapsis.

“This happens in random places around the world, and the question is being able to predict where these vortices or hotspots of extreme events will occur,” Sapsis said. “If you can predict where these things occur, maybe you can develop some control techniques to suppress them.”

Sapsis plans to test the team’s method on scenarios in which fluid flows against a boundary or wall, such as ocean currents against oil risers or air flows around jet planes.

Claim: Hurricane Irma a “man-made storm” created via “weather weaponization” technology

A new video from WeatherWar101.com claims that Hurricane Irma is a “man-made storm system” that was deliberately created or augmented through weather weaponization technology. The video is shown below in case you’re curious why so many people find this explanation so fascinating.

As we have stated previously, we remain skeptical of such claims. We cover this because of the growing number of people who are curious about weather modification and “geoengineering” technology that really does exist. For example, Geoengineering Watch has published a list of 175 patents that prove beyond any doubt that weather modification / weaponization technology is not only quite real; it’s also recognized and granted patentsby the United States government. Any person who claims that weather weaponization technology does not exist is either ignorant or lying.

While there’s no question that all “official” sources would categorize weather modification claims as being a “hoax” or a “myth,” intelligent readers also know that nearly every official source is constantly lying to the public. All “official sources” on vaccines, for example, are constantly lying about vaccine composition and vaccine safety. All “official sources” on agricultural chemicals are constantly lying about the safety vs. risk of toxic chemical exposure. All “official sources” on the environment are systematically lying to you about global warming and climate change. This doesn’t necessarily mean that the NOAA, for example, is lying about hurricanes, but we do know the NOAA has been caught red-handed faking global warming temperature data. Thus, the credibility of all official sources is practically zero at this point. The NOAA is a scientifically dishonest organization, in other words. They fabricate data to fit their fake science political narratives. (Factually stated, the NOAA is a group of dishonest conspiracy theorists who fabricate data to present a science hoax to the world called “global warming.”)

At the same time, that conclusion doesn’t automatically mean every alternative explanation is factually correct. That’s why we advise readers to think for themselves and learn as much science as you can so that you can participate in the debates and discussions. (Most people literally do not know that there are 1,000 milligrams in a gram, so that’s the level of scientific illiteracy we’re seeing across society these days. When you try to talk to people about the basics of meteorology, such as barometric pressure, air density, condensation, the Coriolis effect, solar radiation and so on, they are completely lost.)

See the new video from WeatherWar101 and decide for yourself

The new video from WeatherWar101 offers a detailed explanation of what its creators claim is the “manmade storm system” known as Hurricane Irma. To delve further into this subject, check out the WeatherWar101 channel on YouTube for more videos.

The video explains that accelerated water evaporation is artificially created in specific sequences to grow the storm into something much more powerful and dangerous than it would have become on its own. Here’s the full video to see for yourself:

And here’s a previous video about Hurricane Irma from about a week ago:

Even “mainstream” scientists acknowledge weather modification technology

As the following video shows, even “mainstream” scientists like Michio Kaku are openly talking about weather modification technology being used to alter storms and augment rainfall.

“By firing trillion-Watt lasers, you rip apart the electrons creating what are called ions, and these ions act like seeds, like dust particles, bringing down rain and even lightning,” Kaku explains in this CBS News interview:

As Kaku explains, weather modification technology exists right now and is well known across the scientific community. Its existence isn’t a “conspiracy theory” or a “hoax.” Any person who isn’t aware of the existence of such technology is simply misinformed and willfully ignorant.

Disagreement across the weather modification / geoengineering community

Since first covering this topic, we’ve come to understand that there are warring factions inside the weather modification / geoengineering community. Some of the key players claim other players are “controlled opposition,” for example, and there’s already been misinformation swirling around about our own interest in this subject.

So for the record, here’s our current position and activity in this realm:

  1. We’ve invited Dane Wigington of Geoengineering Watch for an interview. I don’t yet know if he has agreed to be interviewed, but if he does, we’ll set up a schedule and interview him via video or audio.
  2. We’ve sent a list of interview questions to WeatherWar101 and are waiting for a reply. We hope to be able to publish the text of that interview shortly. We’ve also invited WeatherWar101 for an audio or video interview, but they prefer to answer questions by email.
  3. We are sharing videos with the public in the interest of public curiosity and education. It turns out that a key video we published in a previous article was ripped off from the original creator, and we therefore sent a lot of viewership traffic to the wrong YouTube channel (unknowingly). This was not intended, and we’re working to make sure we give proper credit and links to the original creators of these videos.

We’ve also launched our own news aggregation site where we are covering these investigators and analysts: Geoengineering.news will work to bring you more frequent news from the key players in this space, and we’ll link to their articles and videos in every story. We don’t have a weather expert on staff, so we’ll be primarily just covering other analysts who are experts in this field.

In the mean time, watch the videos above and decide for yourself. As this gets more popular, watch for some official source to “officially” denounce geoengineering analysts as “conspiracy theorists.” That’s when you know the analysts have actually hit the nail on the head. No news story should be fully believed, the saying goes, until it is officially denied by the government.

If only Jim Marrs were still alive, he’d be having a field day with all this…

What do I believe about all this, personally speaking? I believe that I’m not the expert in this area and I haven’t reached a solid conclusion yet. However, I do know that exotic technologies exist which are fully capable of weather modification and augmentation. That is not in doubt. I also know that globalist powers turn every technology into a weapon sooner or later, just as they did with atomic energy. Much like you, I’ll keep watching this topic and see what emerges.

“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.

Listen to Dr. Michio Kaku briefly explain the reality of scientific weather manipulation below:

Left-wing "weather weapons" advocates say TRUMP created Hurricane Irma to "drown out" Latinos… seriously

Image: Left-wing “weather weapons” advocates say TRUMP created Hurricane Irma to “drown out” Latinos… seriously

(Natural News)
It’s all President Trump’s fault.

As Hurricane Irma heads towards South Florida, a Facebook user claims that President Trump has ordered the government to manipulate the weather to target Latinos. This same user insists that Hurricane Harvey, which devastated the Houston area, was man made.

The Category 4 storm has already devastated areas in the Caribbean, and mandatory evacuations are underway in sections of Miami-Dade County, Broward County, Brevard County, and Monroe County in Florida.

Now, here’s the kicker. Since the Miami area has a large Hispanic population, one Facebook user is suggesting that the deadly storm is part of a racist conspiracy by the federal government to manipulate the weather.

“Trump wants them [minorities] off our land so what better way than to flood them out,” wrote the user, named Breanna Danielle. After some kickback from other users, she added “I DID NOT MEAN TRUMP IS MANIPULATING THE WEATHER HIMSELF… But with pockets as deep as Trump’s he can tell the government what he would like done against the minorities he wants to build a wall for.”

This is a rhetorical question, but can you even for a second imagine POTUS calling the anti-Trump Deep State and ordering up Hurricane Irma or any other catastrophic storm to train its sights on a specific ethnic group? Do you think maybe that kind of theoretical presidential directive might leak to the New York Times or the Washington Post, the Deep State’s favorite message boards?

You may recall that there were even weird accusations about a Halliburton hurricane machine after Hurricane Katrina that supposedly targeted minorities during the Bush administration’s perceived slow disaster response, particularly given VP Dick Cheney’s former affiliation with the oil company as chairman and CEO.

Back then, everything was Bush’s fault.

In general, conspiracy theories used to be a phenomenon associated mostly with the right but now seems to have moved across the entire political spectrum. Some have described the ongoing anti-Trump hysteria as a symptom of what’s been termed Trump Derangement Syndrome, which has afflicted both the political left and the GOP establishment Never Trump cohort on the right.

Separately, in the video below, a Houston resident recently admitted that she changed her feelings about President Trump after he visited the Hurricane Harvey disaster area and handed out supplies to victims who took shelter at NRG Stadium. “I had a different opinion of him, and now I think he’s a wonderful man,” the woman admitted.

Predictably and tediously, and even as the Trump administration spends billions on hurricane response and recovery, liberals are politically exploiting these storms to demand the president change his tune on climate change and reenter the Paris climate agreement. (Related: Read more about the excesses of far-left progressives at LiberalMob.com.)

Separately, earlier this week Natural News reported that Amazon was engaged in price gouging of Florida residents as the storm approached. Amazon has denied the allegations. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos also owns the Washington Post.

Is the US Under Attack From Manufactured Weather Events?

CSS-Offical-New-Logo2

Hurricane-Irma-848456

Many credible people are asking the question as to whether the United Stated is under attack from manufactured weather events?

The first question that any reasonable person may ask as if the technology exists? The answer is a simple “without quetion”. Does that necessarily mean that Hurricane Harvey was a manufactured event tied to some nefarious purpose? It certainly does not follow that because the technology exists, that the use of proven weather modification is a given (ie “Air Force Owning the Weather 2025).

Making the Case for a Manufactured Weather Event

Dean Wigington has provided one of the most lucid accounts of why Hurrican Harvey is a manufactured weather event:

From: Dane Wigington   GeoengineeringWatch.org

“Hurricane Harvey is the latest example of covert weather warfare being waged on completely unsuspecting populations. Increasingly catastrophic climate cataclysms are being orchestrated and manipulated by an ever more desperate and aggressive global power structure. Rapidly accelerating climate and biosphere collapse is not somewhere on the horizon, it is here, now. Climate engineering is further fueling the unraveling of the remaining web of life on our once thriving planet. With undeniable facts and film footage the video below fully exposes the manipulation of Hurricane Harvey…”

“Sharing credible and verifiable data is absolutely crucial in the fight to expose and halt the ongoing climate engineering assault.  When incorrect or false data is propagated, the critical cause of exposing and halting climate engineering is harmed. Investigate, become familiar with the most inarguable building block facts, and make your voice heard.”

I concur with Dean, if we do not make it a priority to share accuract information, then we can accurately be accused of being “fake news” and we will have no more credibillity that CNN or MSNBC. However, after watching Dean’s account, in the video, I have grave concerns regarding his allegation as offered in the video.

The Air Force 2025 Owning the Weather As a Force Multiplier

I was provided a list of documents loosely entitled “… 2025 Owning the Weather…The Weather As a Force Multiplier.. The Manufacturing of Earthquake Causing Weapons” which details how the Air Force has long planned to enact earthquakes, hurricanes and other weather phenomena to bring part of any country to its knees. I am still processing these articles, however, at the conclusion of the article, I will post a copy and paste an Air Force document which details how earthquakes can be used as a weapons.

There are strong implications that have come to me from multiple sourcess which speaks to the fact that Martial law  (i.e. Continuity of Government) will be declared and the real agenda of using a false flag weather event would be acted out.

A review of Nick Begich’s work on weather modification provides undeniable proof that the technology exists and has been patented and is hiding in plain view. In his book, Angels Don’t Play This HAARP, Begich presents 12 patents that prove that the Air Force has the capability to alter weather systems.

The 12 patents, listed in Begich’s book, described  ideas which were originally controlled by ARCO Power Technologies Incorporated (APTI), a subsidiary of Atlantic Richfield Company, one of the biggest oil companies in the world. APTI was the contractor that built the HAARP facility. ARCO sold this subsidiary, the patents and the second phase construction contract to E-Systems in June 1994. E-Systems is one of the biggest intelligence contractors in the world as the work for the CIA, defense intelligence organizations and others. $1.8 billion of their annual sales are to these organizations, with $800 million for black (secret) projects. Often, these projects so secret that even the United States Congress isn’t told how the money is being spent. E-Systems was bought out by Raytheon, which is one of the largest defense contractors in the world. In 1994 Raytheon was listed as number forty-two on the Fortune 500 list of companies. Raytheon has thousands of patents, some of which will be valuable in the HAARP project. The twelve patents below are the backbone of the HAARP project, and are now buried among the thousands of others held in the name of Raytheon. Bernard J. Eastlund’s U.S. Patent # 4,686,605, “Method and Apparatus for Altering a Region in the Earth’s Atmosphere, Ionosphere; and/or Magnetosphere,” was sealed for a year under a government Secrecy Order.

On Oct. 2, 1992, The Wall Street Journal reported that a Russian company, Elate Intelligent Technologies, Inc., has weather control equipment for sale and uses the advertising slogan of “weather made to order.

Igor Pirogoff, director of the company, said “Elate is capable of fine-tuning weather patterns over a 200-squaremile area for as little as $200 U.S. per day,” the newspaper reported.

The article recounts an offer by the Russians to aid Malaysia to create a typhoon to dissipate a pall of smoke that hung over the country, and still does, caused by the burning of large sections of the rain forests in Indonesia and Sumatra.

To quote from the article: Datuk Law Hieng Ding, Malaysia’s minister for science, technology and the environment at the time, said his country “would use special technology to create an artificial cyclone to clean the air.”

The following link etablishes that the Air Force not only has the capabiiity to manufacture a hurricane, but they can manufacture earthquakes as well. Here is a partial excerpt to the Air Force Owning the Weather 2025 and like most intelligence, it is open-sourced and it is readily available if one knows where to look.

2025 TECHNOLOGY ABSTRACT

This technology abstract is a submittal by the general public. The views expressed in this abstract are strictly those of the author and do not reflect the official policy, position, or programs of the United States Air Force, Department of Defense, or the United States Government.

DISTRIBUTION A. Approved for public release; distribution unlimited.

Document ID: 800062

Technology Abstract Title: Earthquake Weapon

Description: Ultrasonic or acoustic weapon to destroy runways, buildings, bridges. Weapon will generate a very strong acoustic wave that causes structures to resonate, and thereby destroy them. This has the advantage of being a destructive force that is not designed to kill people.

Hurricane Irma

Is Hurricane Irma designed to be Hurrican Harvey, Part Two.  Here is an excerpt from Prison Planet:

“…Hurricane Irma continues to strengthen much faster than pretty much any computer model predicted as of yesterday or even this morning.  Per the National Hurricane Center’s (NHC) latest update, Irma is currently a Cat-3 storm with sustained winds of 115 mph but is expected to strengthen to a devastating Cat-5 with winds that could top out at 180 mph or more…”  

…Longer term computer models still vary widely but suggest that Irma will make landfall in the U.S. either in the Gulf of Mexico or Florida.  Meteorological Scientist Michael Ventrice of the Weather Channel is forecasting windspeeds of up to 180 mph, which he described as the “highest windspeed forecasts I’ve ever seen in my 10 yrs of Atlantic hurricane forecasting.”

In a separate tweet, Ventrice had the following troubling comment: “Wow, a number of ECMWF EPS members show a maximum-sustained windspeed of 180+mph for #Irma, rivaling Hurricane #Allen (1980) for record wind”…

Conclusion

There are reasons that Americans should be very concerned. Is this the beginning of a series of attacks upon our people and property? At the very least, we have to be concerned. The evidence clearly shows that the technology exists to do what has been alleged, namely, Hurricane Harvey was a manufactured event and that Irma is falling into the same “irregular pattern” of weather anomolies.

Here are some questions to ponder if these allegations are true: (1) What is the end-game motive? and, (2) Who is ultimately behind these attacks?

Irma threat: US weather agency warns over ‘fake forecasts’

Texas is currently reeling from the impact of the devastating Hurricane Harvey, a storm that claimed the lives of more than 40 people and left around 430,000 people living in sheltered accommodation.

READ MORE: Hurricane Harvey could be one of the costliest natural disasters in US history

Now the development of second storm system, Irma, has US residents worried following suggestions online that it could follow a similar path to Hurricane Harvey.

One fake NWS and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) infographic shows Irma travelling through the Gulf of Mexico and making landfall near Houston.

But the US National Weather Service has moved to quell any panic, with a notice revealing that their latest projections only extend as far as Tuesday, and show Irma still out over the north Atlantic Ocean.

Further details on Irma released on Friday show the storm is actually almost as far from Africa as it is the US. While Irma is estimated to remain a powerful hurricane into next week, it is too early to tell exactly what direction it will take.

“There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect,” according to the NWS.

A number of meteorologists have also taken to Twitter to say that Irma is currently not considered a threat to Texas.
