The Climate Brainwashing Of Our Youth – Dutch Anarchy

youth climate strike with gretaCCD Editor’s Note: The following is a second excerpted chapter from Lynne Balzer’s new book, The Green New Deal and Climate Change: What You Need to Know, available from Amazon in paperback and Kindle. You can read her previous chapter here.

For approximately forty years the AGW establishment has been indoctrinating the public worldwide, and their media accomplices have been only too willing to cooperate.

But nowhere is this more evident than in our public schools.

The global warming movement, which hijacked environmentalism, has unfairly used their captive audiences in schools to influence their young minds.

On Friday, March 15, 2019, school children all over the world took the day off from school to participate in a demonstration to save the world from climate change.

The headmasters of schools in Britain suspended schools even though their students, were supposedly “on strike.” It was obvious that this affair, arranged to garner more media attention, was organized by the adults.

Al Gore expressed his highest praise for this action, saying:

“Today, hundreds of thousands of young people in over 120 countries stood up to fight for their future. Going on strike from school, they spoke with one voice and one message for the adults of the world: Act on climate. Now…I’ve been in this fight for many, many years and I don’t have words for the pride and joy I feel witnessing these brave young people speaking out today. If you were a young activist striking today, thank you.”

This sort of manipulation of young children’s minds takes advantage of the fact that children are impressionable and often lack the education and experience to discern truth from fiction.

One of the worst nightmarish examples of this type of manipulation is David Suzuki’s statement:

“The North Pole, once a wintery wonderland, is no longer safe for Santa’s Workshop. Climate change is melting the snow and ice, and the rising water is getting too close for comfort. Santa must relocate — fast — to make sure that all the nice boys and girls still have a Happy Holiday.”

We have a great responsibility to teach children as well as adults how to recognize the signs that they are being exploited.

THE MANUFACTURING OF CLIMATE DRONE GRETA THUNBERG – FOR CONSENT – Dutch Anarchy

What is the true nature of the hypothesis of Anthropogenic Global Warming Climate Change Climate Disruption Global Weirding? Is it scientific? Or is it essentially political?  Dr. Eric Karlstrom, Emeritus Professor of Geography at California State University, and long-time researcher in Quaternary Paleoclimatology expresses his concerns about the current geo-engineering operations. He also shares is knowledge about the manipulations in the “Global Warming swindle”.

“What’s infuriating about manipulations by Non Profit Industrial Complex is that they harvest good will of the people, especially young people. They target those who were not given skills and knowledge to truly think for themselves by institutions which are designed to serve the ruling class. Capitalism operates systematically and structurally like a cage to raise domesticated animals. Those organizations and their projects which operate under false slogans of humanity in order to prop up the hierarchy of money and violence are fast becoming some of the most crucial elements of the invisible cage of corporatism, colonialism and militarism.” — Hiroyuki Hamada, artist

1958: “17-year-old Bianca Passarge of Hamburg dresses up as a cat, complete with furry tail, and dances on wine bottles. Her performance was based on a dream and she practised for eight hours every day in order to perfect her dance.”

The Manufacturing of Greta Thunberg – for Consent has been written in six acts. [ACT I • ACT II • ACT III • ACT IV • ACT V • ACT VI] [Addenda: I]

In ACT I, I disclose that Greta Thunberg, the current child prodigy and face of the youth movement to combat climate change, serves as special youth advisor and trustee to the burgeoning mainstream tech start-up, We Don’t Have Time. I then explore the ambitions behind the tech company We Don’t Have Time.

In ACT II, I illustrate how today’s youth are the sacrificial lambs for the ruling elite. Also in this act I introduce the board members and advisors to We Don’t Have Time. I explore the leadership in the nascent We Don’t Have Time and the partnerships between the well-established corporate environmental entities: Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project,

Armstrong: Climate Change Has Been A Routine Scare Tactic Since The 1930s

armstrong:-climate-change-has-been-a-routine-scare-tactic-since-the-1930s

10-09-19 09:38:00,

Authored by Martin Armstrong via ArmstrongEconomics.com,

QUESTION: Is there a pattern?

May 1932

July 1932

May 1947

Feb 1969

April 1994

*  *  *

ANSWER: For whatever reason, these people have been promoting that the cities will all sink and we are the cause of it all.

They have been touting this scenario since the 1930s when there was the Dust Bowl. It resurfaced after World War II when they were trying to stop rebuilding industry and the housing market which had been destroyed. The same argument appeared again in the 1960s when there was a great expansion in housing.

However, during the 1970s when things got colder, everything flipped upside down and then it was global cooling that would destroy civilization.

On April 28, 1975, Newsweek magazine published an article in which they sounded the alarm bell and proposed solutions to deliberately melt the ice caps:

“Climatologists are pessimistic that political leaders will take any positive action to compensate for the climatic change, or even to allay its effects. They concede that some of the more spectacular solutions proposed, such as melting the arctic ice cap by covering it with black soot or diverting arctic rivers, might create problems far greater than those they solve. But the scientists see few signs that government leaders anywhere are even prepared to take the simple measures of stockpiling food or of introducing variables of climate uncertainty into economic projections of future food supplies.”

Then TIME magazine’s January 31, 1977 edition had the cover story featuring “The Big Freeze.” They reported that scientists were predicting that Earth’s average temperature could drop by 20 degrees fahrenheit. Their cited cause was, of course, that humans created global cooling. It just seems that humans are so powerful we can alter the universe but cannot manage to create corrupt-free governments.

The difference this time is they have been able to get governments interested on the basis that they can stop it by raising taxes.

Adding fuel to the fire: What’s behind the climate catastrophe headlines

adding-fuel-to-the-fire:-what’s-behind-the-climate-catastrophe-headlines

06-09-19 09:38:00,

The Amazon is burning, the planet is heating, and it seems like the four horsemen of the climate change apocalypse are knocking at our door. But just how right are the prophets of ecological doom?

The Amazon rainforest is ablaze. Wildfires have increased by 83 percent this year on last, with nearly 80,000 individual fires spotted by Brazil’s National Institute for Space Research. Fires in this region are typically started by farmers every year to clear overgrown land for grazing and replanting, but the extent of this year’s inferno has captured the attention of the global media like never before.

“Our home is burning,”tweeted French President Emmanuel Macron, promising to make the “emergency” top of the agenda at last month’s G7 summit. Macron was joined by US lawmakers, presidential candidates, climate activists, and much of the world’s news outlets, who blamed the pro-industrial policies of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro for accelerating the forest’s demise.

Also on rt.com
Macron doesn’t care about Amazon fires, what we are seeing is a G7 info war to sink Bolsonaro

And it’s not just Brazil that’s burning. With swathes of Africa, the Arctic, and Asia on fire, the New York Times declared a “nightmare scenario” for the world’s forests; one that could drastically reduce the planet’s “lung capacity.” 

But is that all true? The forests are indeed burning, and the fires riddling the Amazon are the worst seen there since 2010. But globally, wildfires have decreased drastically in the last two decades. That information doesn’t come from a climate-skeptic blog or the editorial board of the Wall Street Journal, it’s from NASA, which has been studying wildfires with satellites since the 1980s. 

According to the space agency, the area scorched every year by wildfires has dropped 24 percent since 2003. While land is still being deforested, it is now being more commonly done with machines, not fire, NASA researchers said. Indeed, “the changes in savanna, grassland, and tropical forest fire patterns are so large that they have so far offset some of the increased risk of fire caused by global warming,

Climate change hoax collapses as Michael Mann’s bogus “hockey stick” graph defamation lawsuit dismissed by the Supreme Court of British Columbia

Image: Climate change hoax collapses as Michael Mann’s bogus “hockey stick” graph defamation lawsuit dismissed by the Supreme Court of British Columbia

(Natural News) For the past two decades, much of the hysteria about global warming — later re-labeled “climate change” — has been based on the so-called “hockey stick” graph produced by Michael Mann. The graph, shown below, has been used by the IPCC, the media and governments to push global warming hysteria to the point of mass mental illness, where Democrat presidential candidates claim humanity only has 12 years remaining before a climate apocalypse will somehow destroy the planet.

But the hockey stick graph is a fraud. A man-made computer software algorithm generated it, and the algorithm is rigged to produce a hockey stick shape no matter what data were entered. Like everything else found in the rigged world of “climate science,” the hockey stick graph was a fraud the day it was generated.

Michael Mann didn’t like being called a fraud by his critics, so he sued them for defamation. And late last week, one of those lawsuits was concluded by the Supreme Court of British Columbia, Canada, which threw out Mann’s lawsuit against Dr. Tim Ball. But there’s more. According to Principia-Scientific:

Not only did the court grant Ball’s application for dismissal of the nine-year, multi-million dollar lawsuit, it also took the additional step of awarding full legal costs to Ball. A detailed public statement from the world-renowned skeptical climatologist is expected in due course.

This extraordinary outcome is expected to trigger severe legal repercussions for Dr Mann in the U.S. and may prove fatal to climate science claims that modern temperatures are “unprecedented.”

Michael Mann refuses to turn over the data behind the graph, insisting on secrecy instead of transparency

This court decision reportedly stemmed from the fact that Michael Mann refused to turn over “R2 regression numbers” to the court, which would have revealed the data manipulations that led to the rigging of the hockey stick graph.

Climate Disruption: It’s Not Due to CO2 – Global Research

Climate Change

Professor Claudia von Werlhof wrote to Greta Thunberg. In this letter Von Werlhof tells that the disruption of the global climate is not due to CO2.

Following questions arose from this letter for Silvia Terribili, who asked von Werlhof to give an interview for her radio show Onda Italiana on salto.nl, April 9th.

Link below will redirect you to the radio interview.

Climate Disruption Is Not Due to CO2

By Prof. Claudia von Werlhof and Silvia Terribili, April 30, 2019

***

Below is the transcript of the interview.

Claudia Von Werlhof: The question is how we define climate change and its alleged reason, of which it is said it is CO2.  We consider climate change, at least in the official discussion, as “global warming” and this global warming doesn’t exist.  There are data from NASA, which is the North American Space Agency, and they show that in the last 18 years there was no general global warming.  What exist indeed – because we are not deniers of the problem – are  changes in different dimensions in the weather, in the climate and more so in the atmosphere, etc.  We are going to explain this more in this interview.  The second is the CO2-question which is now very prominent as all these young people are now on the street, because they believe in this story and this dogma of the CO2.

And this is very strange because a lot of scientists, real scientists, are denying the influence of CO2 as a reason for climate change or as an influence at all.  For example, there are about 30,000 scientists in the US now who say that there is no problem with CO2.  On the contrary, CO2 this is a gas that stems from rotten natural materials which is needed by the plants to transform it into oxygen.  They say that CO2 is not at all detrimental for the climate, and that it even is something we are to welcome and that we need for our trees and plants and as a positive effect.

So, the funny thing is that CO2 is often shown as some dirt,

This Is How Crazy The Climate Alarmists Are Getting

Authored by Tom Rogan via The Washington Examiner,

George Monbiot and the climate change heart of darkness

George Monbiot appeared recently on Frankie Boyle’s far-left political chat show, “New World Order.” A columnist and environmental activist, Monbiot explained how we have to save the planet. And boy, does Monbiot have some ideas.

The easy things we need to change, Monbiot said, are to end air travel flying and cease consumption of meat. If that doesn’t sound easy to you, then you’re not alone. Indeed, those ideas are so destructive of modern life, economics, and the pursuit of happiness, that they could justifiably be regarded as insane.

But Monbiot was just getting started. Next up, he took us down the intellectual river, into the heart of activist darkness.

“We have to overthrow this system which is eating the planet: perpetual growth,” Monbiot declared. And the writer pulled no punches. Annual economic growth targets of 3% represent “madness,” he said. The columnist reached his crescendo.

“We can’t do it by just pitting around at the margins of the problem; we’ve got to go straight to the heart of capitalism and overthrow it.“

The morons in Boyle’s audience lapped this up.

In a way, I’m glad Monbiot said what he did. With this interview, Boyle, a terrorist sympathizer and champagne socialist, unwittingly gave us a rare window into the malicious faux-humanitarianism that motivates many climate change ideologues. I don’t exaggerate when I say it’s malicious.

The free market system has, since the 1980s, lifted billions of people out of poverty worldwide, exceeding all of the achievements of all the nonprofits in history. Monbiot and his comrades, in seeking to overthrow the modern way of life, are proud servants of moral darkness. They seek to impose socialismcommunism, or some other defective ideology precisely because these will limit economic growth and human flourishing.

History proves that capitalism uniquely serves a growing and broadly shared prosperity, new innovations for health, technology, and science, and sustaining democratic government.

And yes, that makes economic growth moral.

The People’s Climate Movement. No Mention of War – Global Research

the-people8217s-climate-movement.-no-mention-of-war-8211-global-research

13-03-19 06:25:00,

While millions of people across the World will be protesting on March 15 under the banner of “Global Warming”, today’s wars including Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Afghanistan, Venezuela are not mentioned.

Nor are the dangers of a Third World War which threatens the future of humanity.

Global warming overshadows the dangers of nuclear war. According to media reports, Trump’s $1.2 trillion nuclear weapons program “Makes the World safer”. 

On March 15, tens of thousands of children in 71 countries will skip school in support of what is described as “one of the biggest environmental protests in history.”

While Jobs and Justice are part of the campaign alongside climate, the issue of poverty and Worldwide unemployment resulting from the imposition of neoliberal reforms is sidetracked.

Mid-March 2019: There are ongoing military threats against Venezuela and Iran.

Is a US sponsored war contemplated for March 2019?

Is this a matter of concern which should be the object of a Worldwide protest movement?

The cyber-attack on Venezuela’s Electric grid affecting up to 80% of the country constitutes a de facto act of war.

On March 10, Washington confirmed its intent to carry out regime change in Venezuela. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo asked the US Congress to appropriate half a billion dollars “to restore the economy of the Venezuelan nation (sic) (and) help Juan Guaido.” This statement should be interpreted as a de facto “declaration of war”.

National Security Advisor John Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had previously confirmed their intent to wage war on Iran.

Unfortunately, these war plans seem to have been overshadowed by a highly publicized campaign against global warming.

While Climate, Jobs and Justice are mentioned, the Word “Peace” is casually omitted.

It is not too late to rectify: SAY NO TO WAR on March 15

Our proposal is that on March 15, this Worldwide environmental campaign embody alongside the issues of climate, a firm commitment against US-led wars and neoliberal policies which contribute to impoverishing people Worldwide.

Erratic and unprecedented weather is radically increasing all over the world. Though  there are countless forms of human activity affecting the equation, the global climate engineering assault is by far the single greatest and most destructive factor. The geoengineers are manufacturing winter weather scenarios on a scale that can scarcely be comprehended, what will it take to wake populations to this fact? The short video report below covers the latest engineered winter weather event to impact California.

The photos below reveal the shockingly fast disappearance of the un-forcasted above freezing temperature “snowstorm” in Northern California. The image below was taken on the afternoon of February 13th, 2019, well over 2 feet of snow had just fallen. The snowfall began with air temperatures of 43 degrees. As the artificially nucleated “winter storm” progressed, the air temperatures eventually fell to the mid 30’s, but never got anywhere near the freezing point.

This photo (of the same scene as the above photo) was taken exactly 48 hours after the far above freezing temperature “winter snow storm”.

Below is another image of the 2 foot plus surprise snowfall (at above freezing temperatures) that was not forecasted by local meteorologists.

An image of the same scene, also taken only 48 hours after the snowfall event. The daytime temperatures after the anomalous snow event were near 50 degrees.​

Climate Thinking, Broadening the Horizons – Dutch Anarchy

climate-thinking-broadening-the-horizons-8211-dutch-anarchy

30-01-19 01:02:00,


“The new religion of global warming… is a great story, and a phenomenal best seller. It contains a grain of truth and a mountain of nonsense. And that nonsense could be very damaging indeed. We appear to have entered a new age of unreason, which threatens to be as economically harmful as it is profoundly disquieting. It is from this, above all, that we really need to save the planet.” –Nigel Lawson, p. 106, “An Appeal to Reason: A Cool Look at Global Warming,” 2008

Following essay is an excellent up-to-date overview of what we know and what we don’t know about climate change. It is very well readable for those who have difficulties in processing scientific material. Reading this essay gives solid understanding of the flaws in the science used for the current man made global warming tyranny that is unleashed on humanity. It provides coherent grammar and logic that can be translated into effective rhetoric when engaging in climate discussions with man made global warming disciples.

                                                                       CLIMATE THINKING by Guus Berkhout

Summary: Realism above wishful thinking

Climate change is a fact. It is not a modern phenomenon but has always been with us. There has never been anything resembling a constant climate on our planet. Our climate has been continuously on the move. The Earth’s history tells us that very cold periods (‘glacials’) have always alternated with very warm periods (‘interglacials’). Travelling from a very cold to a very warm period and vice versa was not a smooth, predictable ride but a chaotic bumpy one. About 20,000 years ago we lived through the most recent ice age. Remains of this long, global winter are still visible. Today, we are living in a period of global warming; ‘business as usual’ in terms of the natural pattern of glacials and interglacials. It would be foolish to deny that.

Pentagon Climate Change Report Ignores Its Own Role in Fueling the Crisis – Global Research

pentagon-climate-change-report-ignores-its-own-role-in-fueling-the-crisis-8211-global-research

25-01-19 01:57:00,

The U.S. Department of Defense produces more hazardous waste than the five biggest U.S.-based chemical companies combined and is the biggest contributor to global pollution in the world.

***

This week, the Department of Defense released a report to Senate Armed Services Committee Chair Jim Inhofe (R-OK) detailing the threat climate change poses to U.S. national security. Not only does the report fail to mention U.S. bases that have been destroyed or evacuated recently due to natural disasters, it completely omits the outsized role the Pentagon plays in furthering climate change, as the number one polluter in the world.

Inhofe is perhaps most famous for throwing a snowball on the Senate floor in an attempt to disprove climate change, which might be the most spectacular instance of a Republican official invoking cold or snowy weather to delegitimize science to date.

But the meme itself runs contrary to science. The warming of the atmosphere causes the temperature of surface water to get hotter, thereby releasing more moisture in the air, thereby creating more snowfall.

Be careful and try staying in your house. Large parts of the Country are suffering from tremendous amounts of snow and near record setting cold. Amazing how big this system is. Wouldn’t be bad to have a little of that good old fashioned Global Warming right now!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 20, 2019

The reports were delivered to Inhofe and President Donald Trump, who also denies the existence of climate change. Two months ago, Trump said that he didn’t believe a study on climate change involving 13 federal agencies.

Congress had compelled the Pentagon to conduct the assessment on managing “effects of a changing climate” in the National Defense Authorization Act of 2018.

Report ignores billions in damage

The report studied 79 military complexes, finding that most are, or will be, at risk of becoming severely vulnerable to climate change manifest as flood, wildfires, thawing permafrost, desertification, drought and more.

The report does mention two wildfires in Colorado in March 2018 that hampered training exercises, and discusses flood at the Joint Base Langley-Eustis in Virginia. There, the sea level has risen 14 inches since 1930 and flooding has become “more frequent and severe.”

But the report doesn’t rank the 10 most vulnerable military bases,

The Greek Dark Age & Climate Change | Armstrong Economics

The Greek Dark Age & Climate Change | Armstrong Economics

19-10-18 07:51:00,

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; You mentioned that the environment was the primary cause of the Greek Dark age between the Heroic and Hellenistic periods. Can you elaborate on that at all?

Thank you. They do not seem to connect the dots as you say in school

MG

ANSWER: What is most interesting is the fact that they do not connect the dots which are so glaring for that period of time. The Bronze Age Collapse was a Dark-Age in the Near East, Asia Minor, Aegean region, North Africa, Caucasus, Balkans and the Eastern Mediterranean. This encapsulated the transition from the Late Bronze Age to the Early Iron Age, which was violent, sudden, and a major setback for civilization as a whole. We seem to focus on the fall of Rome, but not the catastrophic collapse of the Bronze Age.

The political economy of city-states that dominated the Aegean region and Anatolia region (Modern Turkey), simply disintegrated much like Rome whereby people abandoned cities and formed small isolated village during the Greek Dark Age. This takes place about 51.6 years following the cultural collapse of the Mycenaean kingdoms, of the Kassite dynasty of Babylonia, of the Hittite Empire in Anatolia and the Levant, and of the Egyptian Empire. We also see the political-economic destruction of Ugarit and the Amorite states in the Levant. Over in the Luwian states of western Asia Minor, we also see a collapse in civilization. There was also a period of tremendous political-economic chaos in Canaan (Israel). This wholesale collapse of all of these city-states resulted in the collapse of trade routes as we saw with the collapse of Rome. This also manifests in the reduction of literacy in much of the known world.

Hattusa became the capital of the Hittite Empire in the 17th century BC. The city was destroyed, together with the Hittite state itself, around 1200 BC, as part of the Bronze Age collapse. The site was subsequently abandoned. Modern estimates put the population of the city between 40,000 and 50,000 at it’s the peak. The dwelling houses which were built with timber and mud bricks have vanished from the site, leaving only the ruins of the stone built temples and palaces.

Climate of Fear: Global Warming Alarmists Intimidate Dissenting Scientists into Silence – Global Research

Climate of Fear: Global Warming Alarmists Intimidate Dissenting Scientists into Silence – Global Research

10-10-18 07:45:00,

Editor’s note

The recently released IPCC study on global warming has triggered public alarmism. The complexities of climate change are not fully addressed.

It is important in debating the climatic impacts of CO2 emissions to address the broader issue of climate manipulation.

As Professor Richard Lindzen of MIT pointed out more than ten years ago in a 2007 article: “Scientists who dissent from the alarmism have seen their grant funds disappear, their work derided.”

Below is the text of Professor Lindzen. 

Global Research’s editorial stance is to publish several differing points of view with regard to climate change as a means to fostering analysis, discussion and scientific dialogue.

In this regard, we have also published articles on on the issue of climatic warfare, namely the use of environmental modification techniques (climate manipulation) as an instrument of modern warfare, as acknowledged by the US Air Force. 

The IPCC report herald CO2 emissions as the single and most important threat to the future of humanity. No mention of the word “war” –i.e. the US-NATO led war and its devastating environmental consequences.   

“No mention of “weather warfare” or “environmental modification techniques” (ENMOD) and climatic warfare.

No mention in the debate on climate change of the US Air Force 2025 project entitled “Owning the Weather” for military use. (See FAS, AF2025 v3c15-1 | Weather as a Force Multiplier: Owning… | (Ch 1) [link no longer active,see also SPACE.com — U.S. Military Wants to Own the Weather)

This article by Prof Lindzen was originally published by Global Research in April 2007

Michel Chossudovsky, October 10, 2018

There have been repeated claims that this past year’s hurricane activity [2005-2006] was another sign of human-induced climate change. Everything from the heat wave in Paris to heavy snows in Buffalo has been blamed on people burning gasoline to fuel their cars, and coal and natural gas to heat, cool and electrify their homes. Yet how can a barely discernible, one-degree increase in the recorded global mean temperature since the late 19th century possibly gain public acceptance as the source of recent weather catastrophes?

Record wildfires continue to sweep the globe, incinerating what yet remains of Earth’s formerly vast thriving forests. Why? Politically appointed officials like Ryan Zinke (the Trump administration’s Secretary of the Interior) tells us that the catastrophic wildfires are being caused from a lack of so called “forest management” (logging). But does such a narrative hold up to front-line facts? Or does this official explanation actually serve to cover the tracks of the climate engineering operations (the actual core causal factor for the exponential wildfire increase)? This same false narrative also helps to facilitate the unbridled corporate plunder of remaining forest resources. The 15 minute video below provides a shocking glimpse into what so called “managed” forests look like.

Our government is nothing less than a criminal cabal that exists to serve the military industrial complex and corporate interests. The relentless looting, pillaging, and plundering of Earth’s remaining forests is a case in point, populations must be fully awakened to this reality. It is imperative for each and every one of us to understand that without trees, we will perish. All of us are needed in the critical battle to sound the alarm.

Climate Engineering Total Desperation, Engineering Catastrophic Wildfires To Temporarily Cool Earth

As the environment and climate systems collapse around us all, how extreme can the desperation of the climate engineers become? How far are the geoengineers willing to go in their attempt to mask the unfolding climate collapse from the masses? Are the climate engineers willing to incinerate huge swaths of Earth’s remaining forests in order to temporarily cool parts of the planet with continent covering expanses of smoke? Examine the dire data presented in this video report and decide for yourself.

We, all of us, are rapidly running out of time. If the biosphere is not soon freed from the ongoing global climate engineering assault, there will very soon be nothing left to salvage of our once thriving planet.

If we are to have any chance of altering our current course in time to make a difference, the effort will take all of us. Detailed activist instructions and geoengineering awareness raising materials can be found on the home page of GeoengineeringWatch.org. Reaching a critical mass of awareness is the only way forward in the battle to expose and halt climate engineering, please, help us to sound the alarm.

Climate Change is Real – Do Droughts Last 8.6 Years? | Armstrong Economics

Climate Change is Real – Do Droughts Last 8.6 Years? | Armstrong Economics

26-07-18 06:26:00,

It is time to begin to really investigate Climate Change for what our computer is forecasting is like a dramatic rise in volatility or a Panic Cycle to be more accurate. What does that mean? We are going to experience extremes on both sides. You will see record temperature in the summer of 100+ F and in the winter, bitterly cold freezing. The admixture of these types of trend plays hell with crops. We are looking at severe droughts. In Australia, we are looking at drought conditions that match the ‘Federation drought‘ which took place during the late 1880s and early 1890s. This also contributed to the rise in socialism. There was a major drought in the outback areas of New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria and South Australia killed many animals. There was a major loss of vegetative cover that led to erosion and a dust bowl. Many native edible plant species vanished with devastating consequences. Between 1895 and 1903 there was a major drought that impacted most of the country. They came to name it the ‘Federation drought‘ which lasted interestingly 8.6 years.

The American Dust Bowl also became known as “the Dirty Thirties” which began in 1930. Regular rainfall did not return to the region until the end of 1939, which finally brought the Dust Bowl years to a close. The severe drought hit the Midwest and Southern Great Plains during 1930. This resulted in major dust storms that began the following year in 1931 coinciding with the Sovereign Debt Crisis. By 1934, an estimated 35 million acres of formerly cultivated land had been rendered completely useless for farming.  Another 125 million acres was rapidly losing its topsoil. Once again, we have a period of 8.6 years.

Again, the next drought which began in late 1949 continued into late 1957 to early 1958 covering once more a duration of 8.6 years. This was also a severe drought in the United States. It did begin during the late 1940s in the Southwestern United States, which expanded into New Mexico and Texas during 1950 and 1951. The drought hit very hard in the Central Plains, Midwest and certain of the Rocky Mountain States, particularly between the years 1953 and 1957.  During 1956,

NASA tells us that the shockingly visible and very extensive “tracks” (or trails) being witnessed on satellite imagery over oceans are ALL the result of pollution being produced by ships, which is in turn creating “clouds” as an unintended consequence. Does the “official narrative” from NASA actually hold up to an examination of the facts? Please view the 7 minute video below and come to your own conclusions.

NASA is nothing more than an arm of the military industrial complex, covering the tracks of the climate engineers and SRM operations is a part of their mission.

Scientists are interested in ship tracks because they want to understand how human emissions influence clouds and, ultimately, Earth’s climate. (NASA)

Ship tracks have shown that clouds that form around man-made aerosols are brighter than other clouds. Man-made aerosols are smaller than natural particles, so the clouds that form around man-made aerosols are made up of smaller cloud droplets. A cloud made of many smaller droplets reflects more light than a cloud made of few larger droplets, since the surface of each droplet reflects light. The brighter clouds that result from man-made aerosols reflect more of the Sun’s light back into space, decreasing the amount of light that reaches the Earth’s surface. This interaction of man-made aerosols with clouds has cooled the Earth, offsetting global warming, though scientists are still not sure by how much. More accurate predictions of future warming depend on understanding how much cooling the brighter clouds provide… (NASA)

NASA, of course, does not in any way acknowledge the ongoing geoengineering / solar radiation management / marine cloud brightening / jet aircraft dispersions. The ongoing illegal global climate intervention programs are inflicting immense and irreparable damage to the climate and the overall life support systems of the planet. Each and every one of us is needed in the all important effort to reach a critical mass of awareness. Share credible data from a credible source, help us to sound the alarm.

The leaked UN climate report is very alarming. They are using linear analysis as always and disregard any nonlinear cyclical data. They are urging that a major crisis will take place by 2040 and that countries must clamp down on emissions virtually IMMEDIATELY.  They are arguing to increased taxation and Europe will eagerly follow because they are going broke anyhow. So get ready. We already have declining economic growth. These people will send the world economy into a deep recession and this will only lead to even more tensions.

A primary objective of ongoing geoengineering operations is to mask the true severity of climate collapse from potentially powerful populations who could oppose climate engineering if awakened to the reality. The majority of the US population is in the eastern half of the country. By consistently engineering cool-down zones over the same heavily populated regions, the power structure and the climate engineers are able to further fuel division and confusion in regard to the actual state of global temperatures. The GISS departure from normal high temperature map below is the most recent case in point. Where was the only anomalously cool region in the world for the entire month of April? The eastern half of the North American continent. This anomaly was not an act of nature, it is a direct result of massive climate intervention operations. For the record, though April, 2018, was the 400th consecutive month of above normal global temperatures (3rd warmest April ever recorded globally), the US was miraculously below normal temperatures with the coldest April in more than 20 years.

For the entire month of April, 2018, the bullseye of below normal temperatures was maintained over the most populated regions of the US. It is important to remember and consider that the eastern half of the US is only 1/200th of the Earth’s surface area (1/2 of a percent). Conditions in such a small percentage of the Earth’s surface, of course, do not provide an accurate picture of overall planetary temperatures and conditions.

Global departure from normal high temperature anomalies have remained similar for an extremely long span of time as next GISS map reveals (April, 2017, through April, 2018). Again, as already stated, such anomalies are not an act of nature, they are the result of climate engineering operations. The country with largest military by far (The US military is larger than the next 10 largest militaries combined) is the most capable of carrying out unimaginably extensive climate engineering operations.

Climate Change & the 43-Year Cycle | Armstrong Economics

Climate Change & the 43-Year Cycle | Armstrong Economics

24-05-18 09:03:00,

QUESTION: Dear Martin,

I was browsing through the website of NASA and came across a graph (see attachment).

It shows the temperature differences between 1880 and 2012. As far as I can see there seems to be a +/- 40-year cycle. I have edited it with the red vertical lines. The end of the current 40-year cycle should be around 2020, which, if I am not mistaken, coincides with a date you have mentioned previously in one of your blogs. This could mean that around that date a new 40-year cycle should start and temperatures should decline. What is your opinion on this?

Best regards,

SG

ANSWER: Yes, not bad. Look closely. The Japanese data seems to be the least messed with. The others have recalculated the data numerous times to get the biggest effect. Our model shows a 43-year cycle to be precise. That is driven by the energy output of the sun for it tests back into ancient times as well. The Japanese data is the least “politically correct” data whereas the US versions have an agenda behind them to justify raising taxes as if we can really change the climate of the entire planet. They get away with this because they confuse people with pollution and climate change. Hospital waste dumped in the sea does not change the climate but is disgusting and dangerous in spreading disease.

The energy output of the sun peaked in 2015 and has been crashing faster than anyone thought possible. The fascinating thing as you look at the chart and see the cycle. They do not. They forecast linearly whatever trend is in motion will last forever.

Climate Engineering And Climate Collapse, A Live Debate On WBAI Radio In New York

Dane Wigington
GeoengineeringWatch.org

This one hour live debate on WBAI radio in New York (hosted by Geoff Brady) presents two opposing positions and conclusions regarding the state of the climate and the biosphere. Dane Wigington (lead researcher from GeoengineeringWatch.org) and Patrick Wood (author of the book Technocracy Rising) debate the facts. The significance of the threat posed by ongoing global climate engineering operations is addressed, along with the role that climate engineering operations are playing in the rapidly unfolding climate / biosphere collapse, which Mr. Patrick Wood denies is occurring. 

Facts matter if credible conclusions are to be reached. Opinions and conclusions that lack verifiable facts, are ideology. If we are to have any chance of gaining desperately needed traction in the critical fight to expose and halt the climate engineering / intervention insanity, we must stand on credible data. All are needed in the effort to wake the masses to what is unfolding at blinding speed, make your voice heard.

Climate Engineering Insanity, Manufacturing Winter Weather With Tropical Moisture

Climate Engineering Insanity, Manufacturing Winter Weather With Tropical Moisture

Planet Earth is being forced into an abrupt climate shift, the ongoing global climate engineering operations are further fueling the overall process. The combination satellite / radar image below reveals an extremely anomalous and alarming scenario: a massive, bizarre, and completely unnatural, straight, south to north flow of tropical moisture from the record warm waters of the Caribbean.

3388y

Again, the unprecedented scenario shown in the image above is warm tropical moisture which became a record breaking snowstorm as it reached the Great Lakes region. How is this possible? Massive climate engineering operations utilizing patented processes of chemical ice nucleation are at the core of this phenomenon.

Animations in the 40 second video further reveal the anomalous nature of this flow of moisture, which fueled the theatrically named “Winter Storm Xanto”.

Chemical ice nucleation (for weather modification) is a patented process, the link below is important to review in order to gain a better understanding of this process.

The next 8 links below provide further documentation and examples of the climate engineering chemical ice nucleation assault (and the processes involved).

Flows of moisture can (and are) being completely manipulated by the climate engineers with the use of atmospheric aerosol saturation and radio frequency / microwave transmissions. The NEXRAD image below was captured on April 15th, 2018.

As the US temperature map below reveals, on Sunday, April 15th, 2018, when “Winter Storm Xanto” was at its peak in the Western Great Lakes region. Temperatures further south along the path of the moisture flow feeding “Winter Storm Xanto” were in the 80s.

Climate Engineering Disinformation, How To Respond To The Source

Climate Engineering Disinformation, How To Respond To The Source

Dane Wigington
GeoengineeringWatch.org

The global climate engineering assault is becoming all but impossible to hide in plain sight as the climate and biosphere collapse accelerates. In response, the power structure’s propaganda puppets are doing all they can to continue their attempt to cover up the critical climate engineering issue with carefully crafted disinformation. How do we counter the climate engineering cover-up campaign of disinformation? By knowing the building block data and facts relating to this issue, by sharing credible data with others, and by holding the propagators of propaganda publicly accountable for their criminal disinformation campaigns. “Earther.com” has just published a climate engineering cover-up article of disinformation authored by Gernot Wagner (further down in this post). Below is my response to Mr. Wagner which was forwarded to his email contact hello@gwagner.com

Hello, Mr. Wagner,

In regard to your recent article “Chemtrails Aren’t The Geoengineering Debate We Should Be Having Because Chemtrails Aren’t Real” yes, “chemtrails” (the term you chose to rely on in your article) is not a science term, and thus not “real”.  This being said, Mr. Wagner, geoengineering / climate engineering / solar radiation management / stratospheric aerosol injection / cloud albedo enhancement, etc., are verifiably (semantics matters) ongoing realities. This fact / conclusion becomes apparent to any who have the courage to do an honest investigation of available data / documents / lab tests / film footage / photographic evidence, etc. In your article your denial of climate engineering relies on a survey conducted by geoengineer Ken Caldeira in which scientists were asked if “chemtrails” were “real”. Were you aware, Mr. Wagner, of a similar survey (of the very same scientists and 1430 more) which used the science terms in the survey? When the actual science terms were utilized, “climate engineering”, “geoengineering”, “solar radiation management”, “cloud albedo enhancement”, 100% of the scientists surveyed refused to deny the climate engineering reality on the record. A legal team working directly with GeoengineeringWatch.org is actively pursuing legal avenues to force public disclosure of the illegal climate engineering operations. In addition to our legal action in Canada,

woolyrhinoIndeed, science was turned on its head after a discovery in 1772 near Vilui, Siberia, of an intact frozen woolly rhinoceros, which was followed by the more famous discovery of a frozen mammoth in 1787. You may be shocked, but these discoveries of frozen animals with grass still in their stomachs set in motion these two schools of thought since the evidence implied you could be eating lunch and suddenly find yourself frozen, only to be discovered by posterity.

baby-mammoth

The discovery of the woolly rhinoceros in 1772, and then frozen mammoths, sparked the imagination that things were not linear after all. These major discoveries truly contributed to the “Age of Enlightenment” where there was a burst of knowledge erupting in every field of inquisition. Such finds of frozen mammoths in Siberia continue to this day. This has challenged theories on both sides of this debate to explain such catastrophic events. These frozen animals in Siberia suggest strange events are possible even in climates that are not that dissimilar from the casts of dead victims who were buried alive after the volcanic eruption of 79 AD at Pompeii in ancient Roman Italy. Animals can be grazing and then suddenly freeze abruptly. That climate change was long before man invented the combustion engine.

Even the field of geology began to create great debates that perhaps the earth simply burst into a catastrophic convulsion and indeed the planet was cyclical — not linear. This view of sequential destructive upheavals at irregular intervals or cycles emerged during the 1700s. This school of thought was perhaps best expressed by a forgotten contributor to the knowledge of mankind, George Hoggart Toulmin in his rare 1785 book, “The Eternity of the World“:

” ••• convulsions and revolutions violent beyond our experience or conception, yet unequal to the destruction of the globe, or the whole of the human species, have both existed and will again exist ••• [terminating] ••• an astonishing succession of ages.”

Geoengineering, Climate Collapse, Dead Leaves, And Defoliants

Geoengineering, Climate Collapse, Dead Leaves, And Defoliants

27-02-18 10:11:00,

Dane Wigington
GeoengineeringWatch.org

Visible signs of biosphere collapse can be seen everywhere, but how many seem to notice? What would our world be like without trees? We would never know, because without trees, we would not be here. In recent years ever larger numbers of deciduous trees can be found fully foliated with stone dead leaves, even in the middle of winter. Why?

The term DECIDUOUS means that trees that are categorized as deciduous lose their leaves, usually in the autumn. This is a natural process. The term deciduous means “the dropping of a part that is no longer needed” and the “falling away (of a part) after its purpose is finished”. Why are leaves now shriveling up and dying on various species of DECIDUOUS trees (and remaining on the tree) after specific rains in the fall season? Even without the present cold temperatures? Why are leaves (which normally fall off trees) hanging on with many species of deciduous trees all winter long? There is no historical precedent for such a completely unnatural and alarming phenomenon now occurring with many deciduous trees.

This phenomenon is taking place both in urban and wilderness settings alike. While some are claiming that trees fully foliated with dead leaves is normal or natural, such a claim does not hold up to objective investigation of the leaf abscission process. Abscission means that a plant will cut away, various parts of its organism. A tree will abscise a part of itself either to discard a member that is no longer necessary, such as a leaf during autumn, or a flower following fertilization, or for the purposes of reproduction. Most deciduous plants / trees drop their leaves by abscission before winter, whereas evergreen plants / trees continuously abscise their leaves. If a leaf is damaged, a plant may also abscise it to conserve water or photosynthetic efficiency, depending on the “costs” to the plant as a whole. 

Again, living trees that are covered in dead hanging leaves are a recently recognized phenomenon. Are the dead leaf foliated trees any more “normal”
