Sure, we have all heard the term geoengineering but do any of us completely understand it? Well, I’m sure some of us do but for the rest of us becoming more educated is the key to really getting to the bottom of things.
I recently came across a video online that got me thinking. This video was of Rosiland Peterson speaking at the “Coping With Climate Change: Best Use Practice” session, a UN-organized event. For those who do not know, Peterson is the President of the Agriculture Defense Coalition and does a lot of research on things like geoengineering and what effects they may have on us and this planet. In this video of that session, Peterson made some very interesting points and I believe the things she said should be heard by all.
In her presentation, she goes over a lot about cloud seeding and how these programs could be impacting our climates. She mentions the potential decline of the bees which is currently happening and pushes for more control in regards to these kinds of things. She claims that NASA and the US Air Force used canisters of chemicals to experiment with the ionosphere which to me really doesn’t sound ‘crazy’ at all considering the lithium tracers NASA is known for in current times.
One study from more recent times really proves that what Peterson has been saying is true in regards to geoengineering. This study was published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health and suggests that geoengineering uses a substance that is a toxic by-product of coal burning called coal fly ash. This study shows that the consequences of this kind of thing would be mind-blowing on the public health itself.
The abstract of this study goes as follows:
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. Two methods are employed: (1) Comparison of 8 elements analyzed in rainwater, leached from aerosolized particulates, with corresponding elements leached into water from coal fly ash in published laboratory experiments, and (2) Comparison of 14 elements analyzed in dust collected outdoors on a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter with corresponding elements analyzed in un-leached coal fly ash material. The results show: (1) the assemblage of elements in rainwater and in the corresponding experimental leachate are essentially identical. At a 99% confidence interval, they have identical means (T-test) and identical variances (F-test); and (2) the assemblage of elements in the HEPA dust and in the corresponding average un-leached coal fly ash are likewise essentially identical. The consequences on public health are profound, including exposure to a variety of toxic heavy metals, radioactive elements, and neurologically-implicated chemically mobile aluminum released by body moisture in situ after inhalation or through transdermal induction.
Geoengineering is something we all need to be aware of. While it may still be quite mysterious it is something we need to work to educate ourselves on.
