Dear Skywatchers,

This week we listen to a presentation by Pauline Cantwell titled The Wild Cards In Climate Change. Cantwell focused on climate change issues not being discussed in the mainstream media, including the history of manipulation of weather and climate, the economic and social impacts of weather modification, weather as a weapon, and the dangers of climate mitigation. It was a heavy spray day and we were glad to see fellow skywatchers in the room. In the photo below: Near a large window, Airship is able point out in real time how aerosol trails sprayed from unmarked cargo planes create man-made clouds.


Pauline says that one wild card not factored into mainstream climate change analysis is the failure to address deliberate weather modification and weather control, including weather warfare. Superpower militaries have quietly made advances to control weather, perfecting ways to exploit the powerful energies for tactical advantages in war. The same labs that brought us nuclear weapons have been working on these projects in secret. They are now openly discussing some of these projects as part of the mitigation policies of the IPCC (International Panel on Climate Change) at the United Nations.

Ms. Cantwell discusses the military weapons designed to intentionally modify the climate and weather, earth systems, and/or trigger seismic events as part of strategic or tactical war. Environmental warfare is almost always a violation of the 1978 UN Convention on the Prohibition of Military or Other Hostile Use of Environmental Modification Techniques (ENMOD).

Two mitigation programs of the IPCC to be discussed are (1) the creation of a cloud cover to increase the reflectivity of the planet and (2) the dumping of iron filings in the oceans to stimulate plankton growth as a means to sequester carbon. NASA noted in an October 2005 newsletter that increasingly persistent contrails are “…trapping warmth in the atmosphere and exacerbating global warming…” NASA went on to state that: “…Any change in global cloud cover may contribute to long-term changes in Earth’s climate. Contrails, especially persistent contrails, represent a human-caused increase in the Earth’s cloudiness, and are likely to be affecting climate and ultimately our natural resources…”

Pauline Cantwell has represented Peace Action, the nation’s largest grassroots peace organization, at the United Nations since 1994. She helped form the Peace Caucus there and has been Convener since 1995. She led caucuses in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1995 at the World Summit on Social Development; in Istanbuhl, Turkey in 1996 at the Habitat II Summit; and in Johannesburg, South Africa at the World Summit on Sustainable Development in 2002. She also worked on the International Campaign to Ban Landmines, attending conferences in Geneva, Vienna and Ottawa. She gives frequent speeches at the UN on disarmament and environment issues.
