(NaturalNews) If you mention geoengineering to people you know, you’re liable to either get a blank stare or an eye roll.
To most, the term is foreign, but to some who have heard about the concept as a “conspiracy theory to control the weather,” they’ll dismiss you as a loon. But the fact is, their denial makes them look foolish, since not only is geoengineering very real, but it’s been looked at as a way to control weather and climate for decades.
In fact, as reported by The Daily Sheeple, President John F. Kennedy proposed creating the technology to control the weather back in 1961.
“We shall propose further cooperative efforts between all nations in weather prediction and eventually in weather control,” he said in a speech to the United Nations General Assembly on Sept. 25 of that year.
Control remains in the conversation about weather, climate
In the 1990s there was a renewed effort by the U.S. government and, in particular, the Pentagon, to devise technology that would enable the military to use weather control as a weapon in certain theaters of operation.
An August 1996 research paper[PDF] presented to the Air Force’s “Air Force 2025” project and titled, “Weather as a Force Multiplier: Owning the Weather in 2025,” noted in the executive summary:
“In 2025, US aerospace forces can ‘own the weather’ by capitalizing on emerging technologies and focusing development of those technologies to war-fighting applications. Such a capability offers the war fighter tools to shape the battlespace in ways never before possible. It provides opportunities to impact operations across the full spectrum of conflict and is pertinent to all possible futures. The purpose of this paper is to outline a strategy for the use of a future weather-modification system to achieve military objectives rather than to provide a detailed technical road map.
“A high-risk, high-reward endeavor, weather-modification offers a dilemma not unlike the splitting of the atom. While some segments of society will always be reluctant to examine controversial issues such as weather-modification, the tremendous military capabilities that could result from this field are ignored at our own peril. From enhancing friendly operations or disrupting those of the enemy via small-scale tailoring of natural weather patterns to complete dominance of global communications and counterspace control, weather-modification offers the war fighter a wide-range of possible options to defeat or coerce an adversary.”
The paper also added that, at some point, “weather-modification will likely become a part of national security policy with both domestic and international applications.”
And remember, that was 20 years ago. Today, geoengineering remains a thing, and – as documented at GeoEngineeringWatch.org – is damaging our planet.
Today, as reported by the Christian Science Monitor, interest in geoengineering continues. Scientists say that one way to combat climate change is through geoengineering, or “reshaping the planet in a substantial way,” the news site reported.
But should we even want that? After all, who decides what the benefits would be, and could we even trust that the effort wouldn’t backfire, thereby substantially polluting or otherwise harming the planet?
CSM further notes, for instance:
“Geoengineering typically refers to mitigating global climate change either by removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere or by preventing sunlight from warming the surface by reflecting it back into space.”
Wait! Maybe Man is causing climate change
Carbon dioxide, contrary to what the so-called “global warming hoaxers” would have you believe, is vital to sustaining life on our planet. Without it, every living thing dies. What happens of geoengineering removes too much carbon dioxide, so that trees don’t have enough to convert into oxygen?
“Some argue we shouldn’t even contemplate [geoengineering], as it’s too dangerous to the planet,” admits Dr. Karen Pinkus, incoming chair of the Faculty Advisory Board at the Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future, at Cornell University, in an interview with the CSM.
But she goes on to say that it should be part of the conversation: “Climate change itself is the biggest geoengineering project ever undertaken, anyway, if you take ‘mitigation’ out of the definition.”
If you take into consideration the length of time geoengineering and “weather control” have been discussed by our own government – probably in conjunction with other governments as well – then maybe Mankind is causing climate change after all, just not in the way we’re being told.
