In response, the U.N. is now considering a controversial form
of geoengineering, involving spraying sulfate aerosols into the Earth's
stratosphere in order to modify climate 3 - with unknown,
and potentially disastrous, effects.
Weather modification and climate control have long been labeled as
science fiction fantasy or conspiracy theory, but the large-scale
manipulation of the Earth's climate, known as geoengineering, 4
is becoming increasingly mainstream.
While geoengineering could have the intended effect of altering
climate, including lowering global temperatures, its unintended
consequences, which include altering rainfall and potentially
rendering some regions of Earth unable to grow food, could be
permanent, and catastrophic.
Spraying Sulfate Aerosols
One of the controversial geoengineering techniques being considered
by the U.N. involves spraying sulfate aerosols about 12 to 16 miles
above the Earth's surface.
The tiny reflective
particles would act as reflectors, bouncing sunlight back into space
instead of onto the Earth's surface. 5
Earth's climate is largely controlled by how much solar radiation
reaches the Earth and how much is absorbed by its surface or
reradiated to space.
Cloud coverage and
greenhouse gasses are examples of factors that influence the
reflectance of solar radiation. 6
proposals are to influence global climate in any meaningful way,
they must intentionally alter the relative influence of one of
these controlling mechanisms," Britannica explains. 7
The U.N. report mentions
solar radiation management and greenhouse gas removal as forms of
Sulfate aerosols fall
into the solar radiation management category.
By reflecting more solar
radiation back into space, the aerosols lower global temperatures
but also have a serious "side effect" - they lower average
As a result, additional geoengineering techniques - such as thinning
out cirrus clouds in the upper atmosphere - would be necessary to
counteract the decrease in precipitation.
What could possibly go
Supercomputers have run models to predict how solar radiation
management may affect different parts of the Earth, not only in
terms of temperature but also rainfall and snowfall.
Report author Govindasamy Bala, from the
Indian Institute of Science, said,
"the science is
there," 9 but it's far from an exact one.
"I think the next big question," Bala told Reuters, "is, do you
want to do it?... That involves uncertainty, moral issues,
ethical issues and governance."
As Reuters reported,
"That's because every
region would be affected differently.
While some regions could gain in an artificially cooler world,
others could suffer by, for example, no longer having conditions
to grow crops." 10
environmental physicist at University of Sao Paulo and another
report author, added: 11
message is more or less the same as (the previous report):
science is not mature enough...
The side effects of
any of the known geoengineering techniques can be very
significant... Society has to consider if these side effects are
too big to try any strategy."
in the Works Since Mid-20th Century
It was the middle of the 20th century when geoengineering was first
developed, using World War II technologies.
Cloud seeding, for
instance, has been used for decades 12 and involves
"seeding" clouds with silver iodide or solid carbon dioxide to
promote rain and snow or weaken tropical storms.
At least eight western
U.S. states and dozens of countries use cloud seeding to enhance
"In addition, the
U.S. military suggested that nuclear weapons might be used as
tools to alter regional climates and make certain areas of the
world more favorable for human habitation.
however, was not tested," Britannica reports. 14
Other ideas to alter
Earth's climate have also been discussed.
Proposed methods to
reflect more sunlight to reduce global warming have included
floating billions of golf balls in the oceans, sending a giant
mirror into orbit, removing cirrus clouds, planting shinier crops
and buildings and releasing microbubbles to make the ocean's surface
more reflective. 15
The possibility of floating giant spaceships over the Earth to
reflect sunlight has even been considered. 16
Funds Efforts to Advance Climate Control
Bill Gates funded research to develop machines that would
spray seawater into the clouds with the goal of increasing the
ability to reflect sunlight into space, and therefore reduce global
The move triggered a call
for a global ban on geoengineering experiments from the ETC Group
and a comment from then co-executive director Jim Thomas: 17
"We knew Microsoft
was developing cloud applications for computers but we didn't
Bill Gates and his cloud-wrenching cronies have no
right to unilaterally change our seas and skies in this way."
Further, since at least
2012, Gates has funded climate scientists' lobbying efforts to
advance geoengineering in order to manipulate the global climate.
The scientists argued that spraying reflective particles of sulphur
dioxide 30 miles above the Earth would be necessary to avoid
catastrophic climate change, but critics argued the technologies
could be used as a weapon or to advance wealthy societies at a
disadvantage to poorer countries.
At the time, The Guardian
"Concern is now
growing that the small but influential group of scientists, and
their backers, may have a disproportionate effect on major
decisions about geoengineering research and policy.
'We will need to
protect ourselves from vested interests [and] be sure that
choices are not influenced by parties who might make
significant amounts of money through a choice to modify
climate, especially using proprietary intellectual
property,' said Jane Long, director at large for the
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in the US, in a paper
delivered to a... geoengineering conference on ethics.
'The stakes are very high and scientists are not the best
people to deal with the social, ethical or political issues
that geoengineering raises,' said Doug Parr, chief scientist
'The idea that a
self-selected group should have so much influence is
In 2018, Gates again
agreed to help fund experiments for Harvard scientists, who proposed
spraying the stratosphere with calcium chloride to help slow the
Earth's warming by blocking out the sun. 19
Geoengineering Another Form of Social Control?
The concerns raised in 2012 have only grown more significant, as
Gates remains heavily invested in climate modification technologies
that not only will destabilize the Earth's climate systems more, but
also can be weaponized against the people by controlling rainfall
In a previous interview I
conducted with Vandana Shiva, Ph.D., she explained:
"The company that
collects patents on gene-edited organisms, both in health and
agriculture, is Editas, founded by a main financial investor for
the Gates Foundation.
Gates is also a big investor in Editas.
So, here's a company called Editas to edit the world as if it is
a Word program.
The two scientists
who got the Nobel Prize this year have both been funded in their
research by Gates. My mind went back to how Rockefeller financed
the research, got the Nobel Prize, and then made the money.
So, you finance the research.
Then you finance the public
institutions, whether they be national or international.
invest and force them down the path where they can only use what
is your patented intellectual property.
And, as he has said
in an interview, his
smartest investment was vaccines, because
it is a 1-to-20 return. Put $1 in and make $20.
How many billions of
dollars have been put in? You can imagine how many trillions
will be made.
At the end of it, where does food come from? It comes from seed.
He wants to control it. It comes from land. He's controlling
that. He's became the biggest farmland owner [in the U.S.]. But
you need weather [control]. You need a stable climate.
So, what could be a weapon of control of agriculture?
He calls it geoengineering...
This is engineering of the climate.
Again, making it look like he's going to solve
'global warming' by
creating global cooling."
as an Alibi for Social Control
One of Gates' long-term goals seems to be mastering control of
global agriculture and food production.
This strategy began with
of GMOs in 1994 and has continued with "solutions" that
target hunger via technology, chemicals and industry partners.
Now, as the largest owner of farmland in the U.S., he's uniquely
positioned to benefit heavily from the targeted use of
Writing in The
Defender, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. noted,
"For a man obsessed
with monopoly control, the opportunity to also dominate food
production must seem irresistible."
He continued: 20
history suggests that the climate crisis, for Gates and his
cronies, is no more than an alibi for intrusive social control,
'Great Reset'-scale surveillance, and massive science fiction geoengineering boondoggles, including his demented and
terrifying vanity projects to spray the stratosphere with
calcium chloride or seawater to slow warming, to deploy giant
balloons to saturate our atmosphere with reflective particles to
blot out the sun, or his perilous gambit of releasing millions
of genetically modified mosquitoes in South Florida.
When we place these nightmare schemes in context alongside the
battery of experimental vaccines he forces on 161 million
African children annually, it's pretty clear that Gates regards
us all as his lab rats."
Ideology, Not Climate Science
Zuzana Janosova-Den Boer experienced Communist rule in
Czechoslovakia before moving to Canada.
In her article, "I Survived
Communism - Are You Ready for Your Turn?" she detailed the "all-too
familiar signs of the same propaganda" starting to permeate her
adopted country. 21
In relation to geoengineering, she points out that communism has
been subverting the environmentalist movement since the 1970s, when
then-chairman of the Communist Party USA, Gus Hall, published a book
called "Ecology," in which he stated: 22
"Human society cannot
basically stop the destruction of the environment under
capitalism. Socialism is the only structure that makes it
We must be the organizers, the leaders of these
Den Boer writes:
"This idea was
incorporated into the U.S. Green Party program in 1989 (the same
year soviet communism collapsed), in which the fictitious
threats of 'global warming' and 'climate change' are used to
scare the public into believing humanity must 'save the planet':
along with other Green issues and themes it interrelates,
makes confronting the greenhouse [effect] a powerful
highly motivating, and may help us to build a mass movement
that will lead to large-scale political and societal change
in a very short time...
First of all, we [must] inform the public that the crisis is
more immediate and severe than [they] are being told, [that]
its implications are too great to wait for the universal
scientific confirmation that only eco-catastrophe would
The IPCC, Den Boer
suggests, is promoting not climate science but socialist ideology,
citing as evidence comments made by Ottmar Georg Edenhofer,
former co-chair of the IPCC Working Group III, who in a 2010
interview stated that climate issues are about economics, and that:
"We must free
ourselves from the illusion that international climate policy is
environmental policy... We must state clearly that we use
climate policy de facto to redistribute the world's wealth."
Even without factoring in
social control, the practical risks of geoengineering are impossible
It does nothing, for
instance, to stop ocean acidification and rising carbon dioxide
levels. And, if the chemicals used for "shading" the Earth are
stopped for any reason, a "termination shock" is likely that would
cause the planet to rapidly heat up, likely resulting in "massive
It's also unlikely that the cooling effect would be evenly
While some of the planet
would benefit, other parts could be negatively affected by droughts
or flooding. The risks and the unknowns are immense in scale.
Even Christopher Field, chairman of the National Academy's
solar geoengineering committee, who said he supports further
research into solar radiation management, told Yale Climate
"If you can't tell
whether or not a bomb works until you set it off, that's a
really good reason to not build the bomb." 25
