    Last week, the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, John O. Brennan addressed instability and transnational threats to global security at a meeting with the Council on Foreign Relations. 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.

    The extent at which Brennan talked about stratospheric aerosol injection shows that he and the CIA have likely been considering this for some time.

    As promising as it may be, moving forward on SAI would raise a number of challenges for our government and for the international community. On the technical side, greenhouse gas emission reductions would still have to accompany SAI to address other climate change effects, such as ocean acidification, because SAI alone would not remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.

    On the geopolitical side, the technology’s potential to alter weather patterns and benefit certain regions at the expense of others could trigger sharp opposition by some nations. Others might seize on SAI’s benefits and back away from their commitment to carbon dioxide reductions. And, as with other breakthrough technologies, global norms and standards are lacking to guide the deployment and implementation of SAI.

    “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 be taking place.

    A study published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health is suggesting that geoengineering has already begun, and the substance being used is a toxic by-product of coal burning call 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.

    Also, it has been proposed that unintentional geoengineering may already be taking place as well. As Derrick Broze points out, researchers with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) are suggesting contrails from airplanes may be inadvertently geoengineering the skies.

    Chuck Long is a researcher with the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) at the NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory at the University of Colorado in Boulder. At the recent American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting, Long and his team released their paper, “Evidence of Clear-Sky Daylight Whitening: Are we already conducting geoengineering?” The analysis found that vapor from airplanes may be altering the climate through accidental geoengineering.

    It may be a very long time before we know what, if anything, is actually going on in our skies. However, when the CIA, who is responsible for so much turmoil on a global scale, begins talking about geoengineering, we should listen.

    Please share this story with your friends and family who think it’s only conspiracy nuts who talk about spraying things into the sky.

      The stuff sprayed is used to control the weather and the public. Its distributed by A./I drone. Most people believe the sprayers are human piloted planes. They aren’t. Trace the drones back to their source, shut it down!

      You are conflating speculation by a government official with an actual program. Let me tell you right now that we are in for a hellish climate because there is a lag time for the carbon in the air to heat things up, and already the sea ice and glaciers which reflect the sunlight are melting, plus our infrastructure insures massive future emission. We are already into the 6th Great Extinction, and if the trend continues we will be looking at a human population bottleneck. Those who insist solely on a carbon diet strategy must be insane – that elevated carbon level in the air is only going way up as carbon sinks become massive carbon emitters (such as deposits of methane hydrate and submarine permafrost melting under the ocean) as things heat up.

      The only way to stop this is killing every perp involved with seeding and eradicate Government.

      • Brad Arnold

        You must be insane. Sorry but sick minds like yours ought to be locked up.

        • truncmunkey

          You are a brainwashed, self-deluded, self-policing, conditioned, tyranny-embracing moron, and you are inept enough to believe that everybody else should lower to your common denominator. Unfortunately too many do. But that don’t make them any less worthless.

          • Brad Arnold

            Everyone is a sheeple but you, right psycho?

            • truncmunkey

              Sheeple and or with a hidden agenda=you. Most are, including you, which negates anything you pontificate; even if it’s a hidden agenda.

              • Brad Arnold

                It sounds like you are a fire-breathing anarchist. Good luck with that psycho.

                • truncmunkey

                  There is no greater evil than voluntarily submitting to Totalitarianism. Watch it Nimrod, you may get your tail feathers singed!

    • Alec Dacyczyn

      Funny how how many crazy internet conspiracy theories turn out to be true…

      • truncmunkey

        That is because many that label actual events conspiracy are the perpetrators, and their cronies, and their brainwashed nimrods.

        • Brad Arnold

          So that is the way you eliminate any other viewpoint but your own? Hidden agenda, huh? Yeah, I must have a “hidden agenda” by recommending a way to prevent a human bottleneck and calling a psycho on the carpet for posting a comment calling for the “killing every perp involved with seeding and eradicate Government.”

          • truncmunkey

            You are one of three things, Nimrod. You are either so ignorant that you believe your own upchuckings. Or, you are so brainwashed that you can’t see the forest for the trees. Or, you are reading and thus commenting regarding a script given to you by others(hidden agenda). Whichever one that it is, they all have the same result-Babble and complete distortion of truth and reality.

            • Brad Arnold

              “The only way to stop this is killing every perp involved with seeding and eradicate Government.”

              Remember writing that? You sir show the classic mental health characteristics of a deeply disturbed individual. An accident waiting to happen. For instance, you think I am some government agent. Laughable. Of course you think what I am saying is “babble,” because you are a conspiracy theorist, which in your case indicates an emotionally unstable and therefore delusional mind. I bet you are getting the same sort of feedback from those around you. I bet you are having trouble adapting to normal life, and go completely off the rails when under stress.

              Get help. You are a risk to yourself and others.

                Babbling/Ranting-Your Calling Card!

                • Brad Arnold

                  I got your slanderous reply on another website. You are a psycho as anyone reading this can clear see. If you think you can intimidate me and write lies about what I write then feel free. You know it is going to catch up to you – already I have a company tracking you down. You are a danger to others and yourself and I will not stand for it. You have a mental problem and need help – I have documented everything you’ve said on this thread and the other. Just keep it up, it just makes it easier for the authorities to track you down, and more evidence for me to press terrorist threat charges. Thank you.

                  • truncmunkey

                    Rant and Babble, Your calling cards. You were intimidated when you got out of bed this morning. Scurry on back to your handlers, those folks in the white coats. You got the ‘authoritres’ tracking me down, eh? That will save me the energy from tracking them down. What do you ‘think’ of that, moron?

      I live rurally on the west coast and should more or less see north and south plane travel. I’ve seen days with cross hatch patterns of Chem-trails not Con-trails. Contrails do not expand to 50-100 times their own width. I’ve had ‘spider web’ filaments float onto my front yard from a Contrail-ed sky. I’ve watched this same thing for over 20 years. A perfectly nice day and all of a sudden you realize that the sky is being covered in haze. Oh, and BTW a Con-trail ‘develops’ behind the engine nozzle and Chem-trails come ‘directly’ out of different nozzles.

    • Aaron Maxwell

      visit nasas website.. chemtrails were NEVER a conspiracy theory, as soon as they began the spraying they put it on nasas site under tracers.. the only confusion that remains is what affects do these chemicals have on humans and why arent they more transparent

    • johnalene

      The CIA’s leading role in geoengineering is as logical as would be an intrusion by, say, Housing & Urban Development into the UK investigation of Tony Blair’s joining in the invasion of Iraq.
