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!

    Who the hell thinks something is true because a committee is “studying” it? These hearings are set in advance to be one-sided, for instance we have reams written about the Russia Hoax but the MSM doesn’t say peep about the CIA being the all-time champion of foreign election manipulation. So the corporate media is hypocritical and spews propaganda for Deep State. I think most people accusing RT of propaganda haven’t read it. If they had, they would be able to point out a few examples of what they think is propaganda. We still have millions of people who still believe what the MSM says on the teevee.

    jet EXHAUSTS put thousands of tons of carbon 30,000 feet,up. This is not the spraying of chemicals as alleged for contrails. Carbon affects heat absorption. Has this been studied ?

    The 9/11 grounded all flights. Did it alter anything ?

    • 9/11 didn’t ground the flights that took the bin Ladens back to Saudi Arabia.

        Per president Bush’s orders.

  • Robby Maraglia

    Geoengineering is an active operation. But it only costs 10 billion a year, and we wonder why we are broke. This entire hearing is BS. When only one side is listened to, red flags should fly of misinformation. Never forget that the R&D for this program was conducted by the military and the university of Alaska. Part of R&D is testing and we are their test subjects, right now as we type. Wondering why its so cold? Because they can manipulate the jet stream and if you watch close enough you can see on radar the huge frequency waves spread across the country. How would they know what works and what doesn’t if they dont test. They talk like its just theory but its fact and everyone of these lying sacks of shit should be shot

    • $10 billion barely covers the chemtrails, which are a time part of the geoengineering being done: geoengineeringwatch.org covers it all.

  • Hurricanes are neither created nor steered by chemtrails.

    least one substance being used is a toxic by-product of coal burning called coal-fly ash.
    Oh really, please provide a single article from anybody that says fly ash is toxic. It isn’t even hazardous, it is used in concrete to drastically improve durability and replaces about 20% of cement production annually, saving billions of dollars for consumers annually.

    • andrew james

      While ewe are at it name one person who gave their permission to be sprayed with said substance. https://earthjustice.org/blog/2014-july/ash-in-lungs-how-breathing-coal-ash-is-hazardous-to-your-health

      • dav1bg

        Also included in the substances sprayed are Lithium (the active ingredient in Valium), some heavy metals, Barium. Barium concentration in surface water in California went up 1000% in 1994, this is their pristine mountain water source, and has bounced around this level ever since. Elevated barium levels have been picked up in public water analysis all over the country.

    • Robby Maraglia

      There is a link, the US Incorporated, the largest monopoly in the world, is all about maintaining corporate profits – regardless the cost to humans, animals or the environment. No better way to help big business than to help them dispose of their toxic waste.

      • dav1bg

        Fluoride is a hazardous waste product of the fertilizer industry. So not just the air.

  • Skies were filled with jet liner exhaust in my sky. I sure would like to know what they are doing because this isn’t a flight path. Maybe we should think about where these trails are not being sprayed.

    • Robby Maraglia

      Its world wide, sponsered by the UN for climate change

      • dav1bg

        Cannnot have a one world government without a world wide tax base. Since everyone uses hydrocarbons, make a special “tax” on it. I find it interesting that never a word is said about who gets this tax, and what they plan on doing with the money to “Fix” our planet. Just the Climate change broken record.

        • andrew james

          Who gets this tax? Take a big guess. That’s how I’m rolling. The ususal suspects might include tbtf banks and the rat shield bank of ing gland.

  • Oh, ok.

  • dav1bg

    Yes, I saw a multi million dollar study by the EPA on the spill. Animals down stream, aquatic or land all thrived afterwards. The results of the study showed that fly ash was slightly less hazardous than dirt. Which was quickly buried by the press. I just happened to be at a seminar when this article was presented or I would not have heard about it either.

    • Robby Maraglia

      did the media bury the study cause they knew it was BS? Its inexcusable for US agencies to ignore the independent studies done by foreign countries that are totally contradicting from their “in house” study.

      • dav1bg

        I actually sat through the presentation, they carefully measured wildlife, checked for heavy metal concentrations in their blood. In every aspect the animal life down stream was equal to or better than control populations in pristine environments. This study was not a “friendly” study for industry, it was designed to be the final nail in the coffin type of study, but it showed exactly the opposite as the EPA had intended, remember this was the Obama EPA, these guys had their claws out looking for blood. It was an intense, very expensive, and comprehensive study. But it did not give them the outcome they had desired.

  • Robby Maraglia

    Concrete, like cat litter is radioactive.

    • dav1bg

      So are Bananas. 40% of all Potassium is radioactive. Concrete is actually a radiation sink.
