While Dane Wigington’s latest documentary titled “The Dimming” is necessary viewing, I prefer UNConventional Grey, partly because it does a better job of explaining the evolution of Geoengineering as a military weapon. It also succeeds in explaining the corporate agenda behind the Climate Change movement.
On 10 December 1976, the UN General Assembly passed resolution 31/72 – Convention on the Prohibition of Military or Any Other Hostile Use of Environmental Modification Techniques. That’s a clue to how long geoengineering has been going on. It started long before 1976 but by then concerns about its abuse had already gathered enough momentum to give rise to a globally recognised convention.
The Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) serves the US Department of Defense as a repository of government funded scientific research. In 1996 it published a paper that is quite blunt about the US strategic military application of weather modification:
“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.” [emphasis added]
The documentary also makes the point that I tried to make in my Geoengineering articles. If you respect the scientific method, it’s your duty to be a climate sceptic because there is neither a consensus of scientists nor a scientific consensus over the debate about whether man-made CO2 emissions are the primary driver of climate change or if climate change poses the existential threat to humanity that climate alarmists would have us believe. But being a climate sceptic isn’t enough when geoengineering could be the Frankenstein’s monster we should really fear. In the documentary there is a section which encapsulates this. An anti-geoengineering activist poses the following question to a panel of geoengineering scientists:
“In 2010 the World Meteorological Organization released a report which listed 42 countries engaged in full-time weather modification activities. This list [presumably referring to a sub-list] is just from the US alone. It’s very extensive. it would take all day to go through. I just want to highlight one particular program. It was carried out by division V Cloud Seeding. The area covered in this particular program was 184,000 square miles in volume. Now the IPCC does not list any mention of weather modification in any of its reports….with all of these weather modification programs taking place, how would you determine whether that event [extreme weather event] was caused by nature or whether it was caused by climate intervention?” [emphasis added, time stamp 1:04:15]
The response from a panelist:
“Your question is a very good one and climate scientists have to be very careful about attribution.” [video clip ends there]
Another speaker later claims that the responder acknowledged that the IPCC ignores the effects of weather modification in its reports and models.
The documentary also claims that climate agreements signed at successive UN Climate Change conferences have created a framework that legitimizes geoengineering by the signatory states without any input from national electorates and legislators. Which would explain why so many governments are stealthily engaging in geoengineering projects in the knowledge that should they face legal challenges, they can point to clauses in Climate Change agreements that legitimise sweeping and undefined action to address climate change.
Ultimately this documentary succeeds in covering not just geoengineering but the entire corporate agenda behind Climate Change as the primary vehicle for a new and complex energy tracking and rationing industry that will transfer vast amounts of wealth to global corporates, paid for by you, the taxpayer.
