 LET THERE BE NO DOUBT:  THIS GEO-ENGINEERING OUR CLIMATE CAMPAIGN IS ABOUT PROFIT, BIG PROFIT.... FOLLOW THE MONEY

 

                                 EXCELLENT VIDEO REPORT

                                   May 20, 2013 Democracy Now

As the carbon dioxide in the air hits 400 parts per million for the first time in human history, some are arguing that the best way address climate change is to use the controversial practice of geoengineering — the deliberate altering of the Earth’s ecological and climate systems to counter the effects of global warming. ...

The arguments for and against climate engineering revealing the extent of vested interests linking researchers, venture capitalists and corporations with Clive Hamilton, professor of public ethics at Charles Sturt University in Canberra, Australia, He’s the author of Earthmasters: The Dawn of the Age of Climate Engineering.

There’s virtually no regulation of geoengineering. And when it comes to sulfate aerosol spraying, there’s nothing to prevent a government, any government, or even a corporation or a billionaire with a messiah complex, from launching a program of taking control of the Earth’s weather by installing this kind of solar shield. So the absence of governance, the absence of regulation and the exclusion, particularly of people from poor and vulnerable countries, is a very serious concern….

- ▶ IS GEOENGINEERING A SILVER BULLET FOR CLIMATE CHANGE?
... But rather than rationalizing our continued use of fossil fuels in the false belief that technology will enable us to carry on with our destructive ways, we really need governments, scientists and industry to start taking climate change and greenhouse gas emissions seriously. We can't just engineer our way out of the problem.

- ▶ NEUROLOGIST WARNS OF NEURODEGENERATIVE DISEASE SURGE DUE TO CHEMTRAIL SPRAYING What this means is that as you breathe in aluminum dust – nano-particles that rain down after a chemtrail spray, you are inhaling, via the olfactory nerves, a heavy metal that doesn’t belong in your body, and will directly affect your cognitive ability. This is not just a concern for older generations, as Blaylock informs us, but even for small children and babies.  Even home air-filtering systems aren’t going to help, because the particles are nano-sized, far too small to be eliminated by even the most costly home air filter... http://www.nationofchange.org/neurologist-warns-neurodegenerative-disease-surge-due-chemtrail-spraying-1378712902

According to one energy industry insider: "Climate change is opening up one of the last frontiers for hydrocarbons on our planet.

pdjmoo's insight:

Climate change is the result, not the cause, of many factors involving human-caused destruction of the balance within our planetary biosphere. We all need to simply stop what is creating it and put our brilliant minds to finding a new way of living on this planet in harmony with our natural world. We also have to cease raping and pillaging the planet for profit as if it is our private piggy bank.  By collective focus on restoring the planet a new economy and criteria for "jobs" would automatically evolve.  The old military minded capitalism mindset has gotten us into this mess - and is over if we want to survive.   If we keep pushing we will not only destroy humanity but all life on Planet Earth.

Why is it we can't envision something entirely different than the way we have been operating?  Profiting from the destruction of our planet is insane.

Daniel LaLiberte's curator insight, May 27, 2013 12:24 PM

We are ALREADY messing with nature, absolutely and catastrophically.  We must stop that, no question, as soon as possible, as fast as feasible.   Whatever we do should NOT be used as a substitute for eliminating all fossil fuel burning.  Full stop!

 

But it simply won't be enough to merely stop burning fossil fuels, because it is too late to stop the reinforcing feedbacks that will make things much much worse.  If we don't do anything more, then we are giving up, we are admitting defeat and accepting all the worsening destruction that follows.

 

To restore nature, we have NO choice but to mess with nature some more in order to actively counter the effects and the causes of global warming and all the rest of our destructive practices.  We must do it right, of course, and not make things worse.  It is not enough to deal with just the symptoms of the problems, but we must get at the underlying causes.  We must do it on a global scale, because the problems are global.   It won't be a short term solution because these are necessarily long term problems that require long term solutions.

 

We MUST save the planet by messing with nature.  But we also must solve a large number of other problems that allowed us to get into this mess.  Unrestrained irresponsible exploitation of nature for the benefit of a few is at the root of all those problems.
