“Strange Bedfellows? Climate Change Denial and Support for Geoengineering”

Potential benefits of geoengineering, despite attendant risks, appeal to some interests showing little concern for the seriousness of the climate change issue generally. What goes here?

These days, an article headlined “Geo-Engineering Seen as a Practical, Cost-Effective Global Warming Strategy” would hardly be surprising.

But what is surprising is that the headline came from a group denying global warming exists: The Heartland Institute in Chicago.

Well-known for its aggressive contrarian position on manmade global warming, and widely lambasted for its “I still believe in Global Warming. Do you?” billboard featuring a picture of Ted Kaczynski, the Unabomber, the Heartland Institute might seem unlikely to propose a solution to a problem it doubts exists. So why did the group run an article on geoengineering in the December 2007 issue of its newsletter Environment & Climate News?

Written by David Schnare, at the time an EPA staff scientist and now a director at the Thomas Jefferson Institute for Public Policy, in the Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C., the article is based on testimony Schnare gave to the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works earlier that same year. Schnare mentions the ease, speed, and relative low cost of geoengineering schemes like injecting sunlight-reflecting aerosols into the stratosphere, called solar radiation management (SRM). In particular, Schnare in that article cited research by scientist Ken Caldeira* of Stanford University (and now also the Carnegie Institute) and concludes “reducing greenhouse gases will cost around 2 percent of the gross domestic product, while geo-engineering (by putting reflective aerosols into the upper atmosphere) will cost about one-thousandth of that.” Nobel Laureate Paul Crutzen’s 2006 article helped pave way for more serious consideration of geoengineering options.

But Schnare’s article, written just a year after Nobel Laureate Paul Crutzen’s seminal and controversial 2006 article calling for serious active research into solar radiation management, ignores the many complications, side effects, and unintended consequences of SRM that worry many. Crutzen had specifically mentioned undesirable destruction of protective stratospheric ozone. And SRM does nothing to stop ocean acidification, instead creating a world never before seen, high in carbon dioxide while relatively low in temperature.

Only in the last sentence of his article did Schnare casually advocate a vigorous development away from carbon-based energy sources, writing “the most sensible approach would be a mixed strategy of geo-engineering…and vigorously developing a transition from carbon-based energy, to include research on scrubbing greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.”

Despite this article and others, and at least one presentation at its annual conferences, “Heartland doesn’t have a position on geoengineering,” according to Joseph Bast, the Institute’s president and CEO.

‘The Lomborg Maneuver’

The Heartland Institute is hardly alone in considering geoengineering as a solution to a problem it basically doesn’t see as a problem in the first place. Bjorn Lomborg and ‘Lomborg Maneuver’ — opposition to ‘real-world’ actions, but support for more radical approaches?

In recent years, Bjorn Lomborg has often downplayed the threats from climate change while pushing geoengineering as a short-term solution. So too have Newt Gingrich, the former EPA staff economist Alan Carlin, and the American Enterprise Institute, which earlier this year posted a seminar calling solar radiation management “an evolving climate policy option” on its website…a site chock-full of climate contrarianism.

One environmental group has taken to calling this straddle the “Lomborg maneuver” — “switching from opposing real-world action on climate change to supporting the most extreme possible action on climate change.”

How might one reconcile such seemingly contradictory positions? and why do they often come from politically conservative individuals and organizations? In his recent book, Earthmasters: The Dawn of the Age of Climate Engineering, Clive Hamilton argues that this pair of positions maintains the dominant power structures of society, especially the roles of the energy mega-corporations that have a great deal to lose from any shift away from fossil fuels.

Hamilton, a professor of public ethics at Charles Sturt University in Canberra, Australia, writes “…these results are consistent with the more general argument that conservatives tend to take a more hierarchical view of society, as a natural order in which some groups are dominant and some subservient. Like a patient who will accept the doctor’s diagnosis only if the illness is treatable, a solution to global warming that does not destabilize a person’s worldview — but in fact validates it — makes recognizing the problem palatable. As the identity of conservative white males tends to be more strongly bound to the prevailing social structure, geoengineering is the kind of solution to climate change that is less threatening to their values and sense of self they are consistent with the ideas of control over the environment and the personal liberties associated with free market capitalism. Just as the need to defend a cultural worldview makes conservative white males prone to repudiate climate science, so that worldview will make them prone to support geoengineering solutions”.–

Hamilton cites research by Dan Kahan of the Yale Law School and others showing that facts must accommodate one’s cultural values if they are to be accepted. Kahan calls this the cultural cognition thesis — that cognitively, cultural values come before facts in assessing many public risk conflicts, and to be accepted, facts must accommodate those values. Kahan concludes “as a result of a complex of interrelated psychological mechanisms, groups of individuals will credit and dismiss evidence of risk in patterns that reflect and reinforce their distinctive understandings of how society should be organized.” Australian professor Clive Hamilton sees geoengineering as less threatening to conservatives’ ‘values and sense of self.’

This thesis helps explain many of the current sharp divisions over public policies, especially those with scientific origins such as climate change, vaccinations, and genetically modified foods. Those with values that place more emphasis on the individual would be expected to dismiss environmental and technological risks if solving them requires restricting industry and commerce. Those who more highly value egalitarianism and community are generally suspicious of capitalism’s disparities and its emphasis on individual initiative, and they therefore are more likely to advocate top-down regulation of commercial activity.

In the context of climate change and geoengineering, Kahan and his colleagues found that making their study participants aware of geoengineering’s potential to address climate change, while making them aware also of restrictions of carbon dioxide emissions, helped to overcome the cultural polarizations that dog the climate change issue. The researchers found too that their study subjects exposed to geoengineering ideas — in particular those who more highly value individualism were slightly more concerned about the risks of climate change than those who were not exposed.

All people are prone to the cultural cognition thesis, especially those at the more extreme ends of the spectrum. But not all realize that the thesis goes both ways. For instance, the conservative writer Jonah Goldberg — who often downplays the risks from climate change (he recently wrote in the Los Angeles Times, “OK, things have gotten a wee bit warmer outside”) while advocating a geoengineering approach — accused “global warming alarmists” of advancing solutions that appeal to their core cultural values. In an interview last year with RightWing News.com, Goldberg said, “One of the reasons why conservatives are right to be suspicious of global warming is that it confirms the exact same suite of policy approaches that these people were arguing for when they were worried about a population bomb. You know, managed scarcity, throw a wet blanket on capitalism, manage the economy.” But Goldberg did not acknowledge that his own beliefs and ideology might influence his attitude and approach to the climate problem no less than those he was criticizing.

Not Without Risks

The reality is that geoengineering itself carries risks, raises difficult ethical considerations, and poses the possibility of unintended consequences, so it is not the slam-dunk first choice solution to problems posed by a warming planet.

Ironically, some of those who say climate is too complex to be forecast, or who criticize models used in climate science as being incomplete or inaccurate, seem to have no trouble advocating geoengineering quick fixes which themselves carry climate and environmental complexities, or which would require extensive modeling to understand implementation and implications.

All geoengineering schemes have unwanted side effects, and some can be significant. Solar radiation management by aerosol injection into the upper atmosphere, for instance, mimics large volcanic explosions, like the 1991 Mt. Pinatubo eruption that caused about one degree Celsius of global surface cooling for a year or two (returning to normal over the succeeding three years).

But that eruption also caused a 10 percent drop in worldwide precipitation, because it reduced evapotranspiration rates over land, and that situation didn’t return to normal for about three years.

There are concerns too that solar radiation management would reduce the essential Asian monsoon or cause drought in Africa. A recent modeling experiment by Simone Tilmes, of the National Center for Atmospheric Research, and colleagues found regional rainfall reductions of up to 7 percent when geoengineering reduced incoming solar energy so that climate forcings were at a pre-industrial level even as atmospheric carbon dioxide levels quadrupled.

There is another large cost to geoengineering by solar radiation management: once undertaken to reduce temperatures, it must be kept up essentially forever or warming will resume in a very rapid and dangerous fashion (see figure on original post). Andrew Ross and H. Damon Matthews, in a study published in Environmental Research Letters, found that temperature would rise by up to 0.76°C in the first year after termination of a 40-year (2020 to 2059) SRM project, with up to another degree in the next two decades.

Such abrupt climate change can shock ecosystems, especially affecting marine biodiversity by giving advantage to mobile or opportunistic species. It would be even more abrupt and dangerous if atmospheric carbon dioxide levels were to rise ever higher. Such threats would hang heavy over future generations, obligated to pay billions of dollars every year to continue to manage solar radiation for an increasingly out-of-kilter planet they did not create, having to carry the burdens of rapid and abrupt climate change were war, revolution, or economic distress to force a halt to the risk management effort.

And these are hardly the only reasons that geoengineering, though tempting, may not be the best solution to climate change, as scientist Alan Robock of Rutgers University wrote in his “20 reasons why geoengineering may be a bad idea.”

‘Laudably Honest’

Of course, not everyone sees a problem with favoring a certain solution because it aligns with their cultural values. “I think it’s laudably honest,” says Eli Lehrer, president and co-founder of the R Street Institute, a Washington-based thinktank that, in its words, “supports free markets; limited, effective government; and responsible environmental stewardship.”

“Many want to use climate change to talk about a pre-existing agenda,” says Lehrer, who accepts the scientific evidence of manmade climate change and favors a carbon tax. “They may well be right. I’d like to do it too.”

Lehrer sees geoengineering as a common sense approach deserving of research, but to be undertaken only if the problem proves severe enough. “It’s probably the best solution to an extreme situation,” he says, adding that a goal of zero carbon emissions is not achievable or “worthwhile.” He disagrees with actually doing geoengineering any time soon, calling the potential adverse impacts “extreme and potentially dangerous.”

Humans vs. Nature

Since Crutzen’s 2006 paper, geoengineering is no longer a taboo subject, feared even for polite discussion, because it can offer an alternative way out of a nagging carbon problem — bariatric surgery instead of strict dieting.

Many scientists now are seriously exploring solar radiation management and ways to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, philosophers are weighing the moral and ethical dimensions of geoengineering, and even a few environmental groups have opened their minds to concepts once considered anathema. The newly released IPCC Working Group I Fifth Assessment Report mentioned geoengineering for the first time ever.

Geoengineering solutions retain the idea of human’s technical mastery over nature. Instead of human societies changing to accommodate the natural world they rely on, climate engineering — consciously or not — is the view that nature can be fundamentally bent and manipulated to accommodate humanity. Wresting with nature is, in a very real way, the story of human development, and taming the wild world has brought some (but by no means all) wealth, relative comfort and ease, and freedom from basic wants. At the same time, that insistence on control now poses risks to the planet as the most fundamental stage on which that existence plays out.

“There is something increasingly desperate about placing more faith in technological cleverness when it is the unrelenting desire to command the natural world that has brought us to their point,” Hamilton writes in the last chapter of his book. “Unless we understand why a certain kind of rationality seems to have failed, appeals to more reason are quixotic. After all, the separation of natural and human history and the dominance of a certain form of calculative rationality were each products of the same Enlightenment process.” — end

We can only speculate that The Heartland Institute of Chicago’s duplicitous actions are the direct result of funding by the fossil fuel industry, (big oil, coal, et al). They no longer disclose their funders to the public: “Regrettably, listing our donors in this way allowed people who disagree with our views to accuse us of being “paid” by specific donors to take positions in public policy debates, something we never do. After much deliberation and with some regret, we now keep confidential the identities of all our donors. This is standard practice by nonprofit advocacy organizations regardless of their philosophies.” http://heartland.org/funding

However, according to other sources, there is a definite monetary connection to big oil, coal, tobacco, and the pharmaceutical industry, (among others):

“The Heartland Institute does not disclose its funding sources. According to its brochures, Heartland receives money from approximately 1,600 individuals and organizations, and no single corporate entity donates more than 5% of the operating budget, although the figure for individual donors can be much higher, with a single anonymous donor providing $4.6 million in 2008, and $979,000 in 2011, accounting for 20% of Heartland’s overall budget, according to reports of a leaked fundraising plan. Heartland states that it does not accept government funds and does not conduct contract research for special-interest groups.

MediaTransparency reported that Heartland received funding from politically conservative foundations such as the Castle Rock Foundation, the Sarah Scaife Foundation, the John M. Olin Foundation, and the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation.] In 2011, the Institute received $25,000 from the Charles G. Koch Foundation. The Charles Koch Foundation states that the contribution was “$25,000 to the Heartland Institute in 2011 for research in healthcare, not climate change, and this was the first and only donation the Foundation made to the institute in more than a decade”.

Oil and gas companies have contributed to the Heartland Institute, including over $600,000 from ExxonMobil between 1998 and 2005. Greenpeace reported that Heartland received almost $800,000 from ExxonMobil. In 2008, ExxonMobil said that they would stop funding to groups skeptical of climate warming, including Heartland. Joseph Bast, president of the Heartland Institute, argued that ExxonMobil was simply distancing itself from Heartland out of concern for its public image.

The Heartland Institute has also received funding and support from tobacco companies Philip Morris, Altria and Reynolds American, and pharmaceutical industry firms GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer and Eli Lilly. State Farm Insurance, USAA and Diageo are former supporters. The Independent reported that Heartland’s receipt of donations from Exxon and Philip Morris indicates a “direct link between anti-global warming skeptics funded by the oil industry and the opponents of the scientific evidence showing that passive smoking can damage people’s health”.

As of 2006, the Walton Family Foundation (run by the family of the founder of Wal-Mart) had contributed approximately $300,000 to Heartland. The Heartland Institute published an op-ed in the Louisville Courier-Journal defending Wal-Mart against criticism over its treatment of workers. The Walton Family Foundation donations were not disclosed in the op-ed, and the editor of the Courier-Journal stated that he was unaware of the connection and would probably not have published the op-ed had he known of it. The St. Petersburg Times described the Heartland Institute as “particularly energetic defending Wal-Mart.” Heartland has stated that its authors were not “paid to defend Wal-Mart” and did not receive funding from the corporation; it did not disclose the $300,000+ received from the Walton Family Foundation.

In 2012, following the February 2012 document leak and a controversial advertising campaign, the institute lost substantial funding as corporate donors sought to dissociate themselves from the institute. According to the advocacy group Forecast the Facts, Heartland lost more than $825,000, or one third of planned corporate fundraising for the year. The shortfall led to the Illinois COAL lobby sponsoring the institute’s May 2012 climate conference – the “first publicly acknowledged donations from the coal industry.” — http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Heartland_Institute

If The Heartland Institute and BIG OIL have their way, the planet will be rendered an uninhabitable wasteland, and all life, including the human species, will be EXTINCT. Shouldn’t we take better care of our home? HOME, the documentary: http://youtu.be/jqxENMKaeCU

Francis Mangels – Retired USDA Biologist with the US Forest Service – Scientific Findings, Lab Reports Conclusive Evidence of Climate Engineering

Mr. Francis Mangels’, retired USDA Biologist with the US Forest Service (35 years), scientific findings:

GEOENGINEERING  — What We Know as of 7/7/14, +70 lab reports, photo/objective evidence, logic, facts, research, and scientist observations:

LAB/FIELD REPORTS — Normal rain is zero ug/l metallic elements, pH about 5.6.

o A lined pond (guzzler) near Redding has about 375,000 ug/l of aluminum. We are concerned that deer and wildlife drink this water. USFS ignored letters.

o Sugar Pine Canyon Creek, Redding, CA has 4,600,000 ppb of aluminum (normal soil 15,000 ppb) in upper and lower stream. Fish losing scales, ulcerous, sick.

o Sisson meadow pond sludge water in Mt Shasta has 12,000 mg/kg of aluminum, and pond is fed by city spring water, but exposed to sky (sample taken at outlet).

o Mt. Shasta City Park spring water had 1540 ug/l of aluminum in 2009. Other streams have more. Aquatic and terra insects about 20% of numbers since 2007.

o Since terrestrial insects are now very low, song bird populations are also very low. Road and window kill birds or wildlife are very lean, diseased, or cancerous.

o Fish and insects died in Cold Creek, Mt Shasta. Aluminum, lead, arsenic. Of 200 trout stomachs examined in 2014, none had an aquatic insect, 95% had nothing.

o Strontium, barium, and aluminum are often found in soil. “Dust” does not explain high amounts in the rain or snow, nor zero, nor concentration above soil numbers.

o Outside soils in Mt. Shasta area in 2007 have over 1.6 % or 16,000 mg/kg of aluminum. Soil is 13000 mg/kg (1.3%) aluminum under my house, likely natural.

o Snowdrift near McCloud on Mt Shasta at 8000’ has 61,100 ug/l aluminum, 83 of barium, and 383 of strontium, over 4 times that of protected soil.

o 2013 rain report in Mt. Shasta gauge is 13,100 ug/l aluminum, 130 barium, 138 strontium. Undrinkable by state standards, 13 times the allowable limit.

o Lab reports of storms range from 0 to 30 ug/l in rain with no spraying to 13,100 ug/l of aluminum; always positively correlated to jet spraying (national info).

o Mt. Shasta samples were taken by a USDA scientist with legal water sampling experience and MS degree; he uses a plastic USNWS rain gauge on a 7’ pole.

o Samples show a direct relationship to contrail density: More contrails, higher Aluminum, Barium, and/or Strontium in water; also boron, titanate, and arsenic.

o Zero readings of any elements prove our samples are not self-contaminated.

o The Mt. Shasta city water report indicates that aluminum, barium, strontium, lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, boron, and chromium are not found in city water yet.

o Other states show high Al, Ba, Sr, As, B, Pb, Fe, and Mn, but any may be zero.

o Iron/manganese may be meteor dust. Lead is from planes or old leaded gasoline.

o Some have higher Al, Sr, or Ba, or zero on any, so formulas may change.

o Radioactivity in rain was tested with a Geiger counter, no abnormal indications.

o Some readings may be the result of local polluting industries. However, results are nationally correlated to jet spraying, over 90% with no local factory source.

o Fibers that appear instead of dust have Welsbach elements; they are a spray error.

o Geoengineering activist sites posting scientists’ data after the UV report was then crashed 8 times by hackers (military/corporate). Activist sites have over 12 million hits. Debunkers only 175.

o Ultraviolet B is up 1200% of normal. UVA also up. UVB causes skin cancer and sunburn, and cell death on plants. Nanoparticles destroy ozone.

o Mutagenic effects on corn, ovaried tassels, tomatoes. Tree top and bark damage evident, notably betulaceae, tulipifera, deodars, maples. Grapes, legumes immune.

SAMPLING PH – From USDA 1983 Soil Survey Siskiyou Co. and rain reports.

 When contrails are inactive, rain is under 6 pH. With activity, pH is 6.5 to 7.5.

 The pH of rain is directly and nationally related to contrail pre-storm weather front spraying. Over 600 tests have been made, and this pattern continues.

 Coniferous Douglas fir forest north of Redding, CA was tested by USDA Soils specialists Komar and Jim Collins at 7.4 pH. He said it should be 5.5 for the soil.

 Normal acidity for Mt. Shasta area Deetz 125, 126 soils, a habitat of acidic black oak and mixed conifer forest, is 4.5-6.0. Now it is 6.5-7.5 pH in over 400 samples.

 About ten samples were taken by meter in McCloud, CA of yards, oak forest, and gardens. They ranged from 7.0 to 8.5, or un-naturally alkaline. pH papers agreed.

 The St. Francis organic garden and lawn in Mt. Shasta was 5.5 pH in 2003, now 6.5 to 7.0. Soil is 10-20xs more alkaline. The pH papers, meters, kits all agreed.

 Garden compost is black oak leaves, acorns, and ponderosa pine needles (acid), maybe mixed in grass. Sulfur slightly lowered pH.

 A pH increase is likely oxides, hydroxides, and carbonates of Welsbach elements.

 Contrails boomed during George Bush years 2000-2008, especially after 2006 and pH increased remarkably in soil and rain in those anti-environment years.

 Garden production declined for acid-soil-loving vegetables; potatoes, tomatoes. Most root crops declined in Deetz soils, but unpredictable in neutral Diyou soils.

 Some metallic cations are toxic to biological systems, and could explain 90% loss of aquatic insect populations in 4 headwater streams. Less change below springs.

 Natural insect variations occur, but not an 80% loss, particularly of diptera that live in sediment deposits in streams, where toxic metals accumulate.

 The metals, etc. are not from China, and scientists on Mt. Rainier verified it.

 The three main cations (as nanoparticles?) cause endocrine/enzyme malfunction. They are the basis for, or act similar to, prion diseases such as “mad cow.”

Sufficient evidence indicates correlation with neurological, lung, and bone diseases, particularly in children as autism, asthma, and in adults as Alzheimer’s.

Breathing and neural problems increased after spraying, esp. elderly and children. Autism 1/15,000 to 1/50, Alzheimer’s is now 1 of 3 a plague in 2013 says CDC.

 Five pet dogs refuse to drink rain/snow water, but insist on tap water. Witness!

 Similarly, neural, skin, lung, cancer, or endocrine problems are now frequently reported in cats (meticulous groomers), dogs, and horses (drink pond water).

MILITARY CONTRAIL OBSERVATIONS – Observations, telescopes, retired military.

 In telescopes, contrail jets have few side windows, and usually military kc135 or kc434s. Some contract Boeing 737s have belly/wingtip nozzles. Video/pics available.

 Some contrails are multi-colored; often the middle streak shiny blue, brown, dark gray, but outside two are white. 2 or 4 engine jets, often with 3-6 trails, some offset.

 San Francisco Flight Aware says over 30 jets per day over Mt. Shasta are normal, about 100 West Coast. Odd patterns happen, at any altitude, but should be unusual.

 Heavy spraying days are often just before weather fronts, and mostly military jets. A weather lady on TV-12 remarked on this 11/24/10 and was fired.

 Contrail jets are most active dawn to dusk. Commercial jets do not usually leave persistent contrails, but military jets almost always do. Some jets contrail at night.

 Cloud formations and combinations are changed, new, and unusual since 2003.

 Before 2000, skies were typically a deep blue. Now skies are typically whitish haze or gray-brown blue, and true blue is unusual due to high elevation jet pollutants.

 In the 1950s to 1980s, a normal contrail was maybe 30 jets long and disappeared. Now they last several hours to all day, especially since 2003, or George Bush years.

 Some jets emit a ball of smoke over 5 degrees in diameter, and the contrail begins. If it were a lens of cold air, it would not be a ball, but fade in or out. Impossible display.

 Some contrails appear to have particulate matter streaming down out of them, much like fireworks displays, leaving trails of smoke as the particles descend. Smoke balls.

 Some contrails converge to a point, often over Mt. Shasta, then re-align, cross, curve, grid format, or radiate (asterisk-like) out from the mountain. Atypical flight variants.

 Two-engine and four-engine jets leaving 3 or 5 line contrails, with nozzles seen in mid-belly or wings. Military jets leave persistent contrails, usually in odd numbers.

 Pro-military congressmen and USFS claim contrails are harmless. Results of certified mail/phone: no answer, ignorance, security reasons.

 Many locals and USFS indicate lightning is more violent after jet spraying, esp. width and number of bolts. The number of thunderstorms is below normal and erratic.

 Heat of condensation in physics indicates micron-sized particles reduce rainfall. California is in a drought since spraying began, as rain transfers to Eastern USA.

 Contrail composition measured in rainfall is the same as indicated in the San Diego conference Feb 20 and in Welsbach geo-engineering patents used by military jets.

 Geo-engineers at the Feb. 20, 2010 meeting in San Diego saw D. Keith admit on camera that spraying may have terrible consequences. They don’t know.

 The military says that “engine erosion” causes metals in contrails, but won’t say more (military secret). Do engines wear out to require an extra 20 million tons Al per year?

 Solar collection panel efficiency remarkably decreases with contrail spraying, robbing investors of their just share of solar electric power up to 50%. Industrial jeopardy.

 At “What in the World Are They Spraying” viewing in Redding, CA 12/10 a full panel of medical, ex-military, solar experts, and scientists affirmed it before over 500 people.

 Weathermen report consistent upper atmosphere conditions, but one day has 50 trails and the next day none, can one believe all jets cancelled? Where is consistency?

 Once a year, we watch two jets fly at a giant thunderhead, melt a 1-mile blue hole in it, fly through it, and the storm falls apart. What a drought-causing weapon!

 Many photos are available of straight lines, X’s, grids, circles, squares combos in high clouds, and in nature this is impossible; a military weather weapon system.

 Only the military industrial complex has funding capability; a black hole budget ($1.3 trillion) and control to be able to do geoengineering at $5 billion per year.

 Mud rain in Chico, CA on 5/14/12 had 58,000 ug/l Al, 480 Sr, and 413 Ba. “Never seen it before. Hard to get off,” the newspaper said, “Dust in rainy weather.” Oh?

 We observed a military jet 1/2 mile away spraying Shasta via nozzles, returning over precisely the same route ½ hour later, not spraying (no time to land), routine pattern.

 Why would all these scientists be making this stuff up about climate and geoengineering effects? A fact is a fact is a fact, not a belief or opinion.

This is revised as new reliable observations and data are available. By Francis Mangels.

Trolls Gone Wild – A Mini-Doc by Madison Star Moon

In the continuing series of articles exposing trolls/shills/cyberbullies, introducing activist Madison Star Moon’s mini-doc appropriately titled, “Trolls Gone Wild”. Well done, Madison Star Moon!

If WE (all people of the world) care about the future sustainability of this planet and all life on it, then we absolutely MUST wake up to global climate engineering and recognize it as the polluting REALITY that it IS.

There are four honest mentalities regarding geoengineering:

1) AGAINST (activists who CARE about life-nature-planet-future)

2) FOR (“debunkers” & the corp/gov/biotech/geoengineering/dirty energy profiteers funding them)

3) APATHETIC (too self centered to notice or care either way)

4) STATUS QUO (the masses of groupthink/herd mentality duped by the disinformation campaign remaining in a vehement state of denial unwittingly doing its bidding).

Council on Foreign Relations Unilateral Planetary Scale Geoengineering 2008 Briefing Notes, since it IS a reality: http://www.cfr.org/content/thinktank/GeoEng_041209.pdf

If we question WHY disinformation is so rampant in social media, targeting those increasing awareness attempting to assassinate their character to discredit their efforts, the answer is clear, it’s a strategic attack to purposely suppress awareness and prevent outcry because “an ignorant public is a compliant public”.

Scientist, Family Man, and Facebook Troll?…

Scientist, Family Man, and Facebook Troll?…

Neil Penn Facebook Profile

Meet Neil Pennington a.k.a. Neil Penn, Scientist, Family Man…  Troll.

Neil Pennington wears many hats, one of which is an active “troll” on facebook by way of a separate account with a shortened version of his name “Neil Penn”. In fact, “Neil Penn” happens to be on a list of known offenders that go around targeting people & awareness groups that he and his denier cult cronies “disagree” with, attempting to bait honest people into a debate to “prove them wrong”, disrespecting others’ right to share information; as well as, slandering leaders in the awareness movement using classic “character assassination” tactics attempting to “discredit” them in order to cast doubt on harmful aerial spraying happening globally. Why anyone would waste valuable time harassing people on facebook?

Well, it turns out that Neil Pennington is, in fact, a purveyor of dirty, unsustainable, profit-over-people, industrial activity since he profits from performing acoustic assessments for mining (coal,/gold), fracking, drilling, etc.; given this, it’s no surprise that he is a dirty energy troll/pro-geoengineering advocate, but what IS a surprise, is the amount of time he spends on facebook seeking out and attacking others. Neil, business owner and father of three, where DOES he find the time?

Below is a disallowed comment “Neil Penn” made on our article: https://rebelsiren.wordpress.com/2014 The Cult – Jim Jones’ disciples had nothing on these guys Again, why a “professional scientist” continues to resort to this level of immaturity, or find the time? The last line of the comment he wrote below is slightly amusing, yet disturbing that this man has any kind of clout in the world. Judging by his comment, as well as his unrelenting troll attacks on facebook, it appears that Mr. Pennington failed to learn socially acceptable graces during his vast “education”. This begs the question, if along with his GPA, his behavior was also a factor in why it took him so long to finally get his BS degree? This man serves as a classic example that education is not the same as intelligence.

While viewing the screenshot below, keep in mind that our “cult” article made absolutely NO reference whatsoever of “the scientific community being a cult”. To clarify, science isn’t the problem, irresponsible pseudo-science that puts profit above sustainability of the planet, is a catastrophic problem on a global scale; yet, the focus of our article is to raise awareness of the strategic troll attacks rampant on social media by the DENIER CULT (trolls/shills/brainwashed-masses) spouting text-speak about “contrail formation” disregarding actual scientific data relating to climate engineering, weather modification, or any other reality based information. Trolls demand “evidence”, then reject it when it’s presented.

Notice how Neil Penn refers to geoengineering as “the chemtrail hoax”, twisting it around in classic troll fashion. The term “shill” and “troll” are interchangeable, especially in his case. It’s too bad that Neil Penn is a willful accomplice to crimes against humanity, other than that, judging by the playful nature of his comment, he seems like a relatively fun guy. Anyone that’s an avid Monty Python fan can’t be all bad… can they? Let’s take a look.

CLICK SCREENSHOTS TO VIEW

According to his IP location, (a matter of public record), Neil Penn is based near Sydney, Australia, capital of New South Wales, not far from Newcastle, coincidentally, so is Neil Pennington, who often condescendingly boasts about his vast education and being a hot shot business owner. Where does Neil find the time for such rampant troll activity? Most educated people that own businesses are far too busy providing for their families to create fake accounts and go around harassing others on social media. If we examine Neil “Penn” a bit closer, we find that he seems to have nothing but time to devote to harassing others, rather than to his family. He created a (subsequently removed) facebook “fraudster” page that targeted an anti-geoengineering leader, as well as contributing to several other known fake pages.

Why do these “trolls” purposely seek out, target and attack others with whom they disagree? Who in their right minds operates like that? If you thought someone was a conspiracy nutter would anyone waste their valuable time seeking others out just to try to prove them wrong? Neil Penn and his accomplices exhibit blatant discrimination that should not be tolerated in social media forums.

The answer as to WHY becomes clear when we analyse their strategy (political tactics), motivation (purveyors of dirty, unsustainable science/paid forum poster shills/brainwashed deniers), and personality type (narcissistic disorder). http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0191886914000324 AND  http://www.slate.com/articles/health_and_science/climate_desk/2014/02/internet_troll_personality_study_machiavellianism_narcissism_psychopathy.html

Below is “Neil Penn’s” facebook profile. Nice deep BLUE sky, Neil, photoshop much? Where do skies exist on the globe look like this anymore? Not where any of us live, that’s for sure, even if it starts out blue, within a couple of hours, is COVERED in persisting, spreading, lingering, sprayed HAZE. Could it be that this beautiful photoshopped sky helps prove his far-fetched point that global climate engineering isn’t happening on any level, including experimentation?

According to Neil Penn and the rest of the denier cult “debunkers”, experimentation isn’t possible, has never, nor ever will, happen; despite the fact that experimentation is how science works. Anyone that has ever taken basic science in school, knows that experimentation is the essential element to any scientific project, this includes climate engineering. These trolls constantly speak of “science”, yet provide NONE, with the exception of regurgitating contrail formation text-speak inapplicable to what we observe in our global skies. What do YOUR skies look like in your part of the globe?

Neil Penn Facebook Profile

Neil Penn and pals target anyone and everyone that they believe has any influence raising awareness. They seek out and strategically attack their intended targets, opting to kick people when they’re down, often resorting to making things up if they can’t find anything else to exploit and pick on; is that their “job” perhaps? Either way, these narcissistic, psychotic trolls openly exhibit classic bully mentality with the maturity level of a twelve year old. Neil Penn is known for his insults, name calling, and general low level troll behavior you wouldn’t expect from an “educated business owner”, unless of course, he’s a raging sociopath with too much time on his hands.

A couple of Mr. Pennington’s projects that are of public record. I wonder if Australian environmental groups were too keen on these?

Hook, Line, and STINKER – Can You Smell The Disinformation Bait?

Hook, Line, & STINKER – Can You Smell The Disinformation Bait?

Climate Engineering, weather modification and weather warfare is more of a reality than you may think. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that the profiteers of such programs would spend big money and go to great lengths to keep the public in the dark by way of propaganda to prevent public outcry that would be the only thing to have the power to put an end to their profitable but destructive programs. That said, is anyone else suspicious of the viral video, “BUSTED Pilot Forgets To Turn Off Chemtrails While Landing” below? Or am I the only one that smells the disinformation bait?

Whether the video of the “busted pilot forgetting to turn off chemtrails while landing” is real or not is irrelevant since it clearly has been used as a setup for a “debunking” attack. Considering that the disinformation campaign has successfully turned the word “chemtrails” into a trigger word, labeling anyone who questions the official narrative a conspiracy theorist, purposely associating such a label with Bigfoot, aliens, “moon hoax”, etc., these notorious “debunkers”, (disinformation shills associated with the two notorious junk sites ran by gaming programmer, Mick West), seemed to have “debunked” the video before it even came out, and that smells fishy. See excerpt below and click orange link for full article about how the CIA coined the term “conspiracy theorist” to control mass perception:

The CIA Coined the Term Conspiracy Theorist In 1967

Specifically, in April 1967, the CIA wrote a dispatch which coined the term “conspiracy theories” … and recommended methods for discrediting such theories.  The dispatch was marked “psych” –  short for “psychological operations(a.k.a. psyops) or disinformation –  and “CS” for the CIA’s “Clandestine Services” unit. The dispatch was produced in responses to a Freedom of Information Act request by the New York Times in 1976.

The dispatch states:

2. This trend of opinion is a matter of concern to the U.S. government, including our organization.

The aim of this dispatch is to provide material countering and discrediting the claims of the conspiracy theorists, so as to inhibit the circulation of such claims in other countries. Background information is supplied in a classified section and in a number of unclassified attachments.

3. Action. We do not recommend that discussion of the [conspiracy] question be initiated where it is not already taking place. Where discussion is active addresses are requested:

a. To discuss the publicity problem with and friendly elite contacts (especially politicians and editors) , pointing out that the [official investigation of the relevant event] made as thorough an investigation as humanly possible, that the charges of the critics are without serious foundation, and that further speculative discussion only plays into the hands of the opposition. Point out also that parts of the conspiracy talk appear to be deliberately generated by …  propagandists. Urge them to use their influence to discourage unfounded and irresponsible speculation.

b. To employ propaganda assets to and refute the attacks of the critics. Book reviews and feature articles are particularly appropriate for this purpose. The unclassified attachments to this guidance should provide useful background material for passing to assets. Our ploy should point out, as applicable, that the critics are (I) wedded to theories adopted before the evidence was in, (II) politically interested, (III) financially interested, (IV) hasty and inaccurate in their research, or (V) infatuated with their own theories.

4. In private to media discussions not directed at any particular writer, or in attacking publications which may be yet forthcoming, the following arguments should be useful:

a. No significant new evidence has emerged which the Commission did not consider.

b. Critics usually overvalue particular items and ignore others. They tend to place more emphasis on the recollections of individual witnesses (which are less reliable and more divergent–and hence offer more hand-holds for criticism) …

c. Conspiracy on the large scale often suggested would be impossible to conceal in the United States, esp. since informants could expect to receive large royalties, etc.

d. Critics have often been enticed by a form of intellectual pride: they light on some theory and fall in love with it; they also scoff at the Commission because it did not always answer every question with a flat decision one way or the other.

f. As to charges that the Commission’s report was a rush job, it emerged three months after the deadline originally set. But to the degree that the Commission tried to speed up its reporting, this was largely due to the pressure of irresponsible speculation already appearing, in some cases coming from the same critics who, refusing to admit their errors, are now putting out new criticisms.

g. Such vague accusations as that “more than ten people have died mysteriously” can always be explained in some natural way ….

5. Where possible, counter speculation by encouraging reference to the Commission’s Report itself. Open-minded foreign readers should still be impressed by the care, thoroughness, objectivity and speed with which the Commission worked. Reviewers of other books might be encouraged to add to their account the idea that, checking back with the report itself, they found it far superior to the work of its critics.

Given this, is it really so far fetched to consider this ploy is being utilized to this day by profiteers of climate engineering and other potentially disastrous profit above people programs to prevent public outcry?…

In the video of the “busted pilot”, it does appear that spray nozzles may be in full operation as the plane descends, (could be chemical spray, jet fuel dump, or a good Photoshop job), either way, the swirly mini-tornadoes that appear is a scientific phenomenon called, “Wake Vortex”, making over-zealous activists an easy target for the “debunkers”. This is the focus of the “debunkers”, of course, and there are countless webpages of disinformation sites “proving” this. Newsflash, “debunkers”. It is important to remember how disinformation works, it’s an intentional concoction of truth & lies constructed to manipulate and deceive an honest public, negatively influence opinion, suppress awareness and ultimately prevent outcry, because they know that “an ignorant public is a compliant public“.

This video is sourceless and virtually unverifiable, making it a prime target for a “debunking” ploy. Perhaps it’s real, perhaps it isn’t, the fact is that we’ll never know. It is entirely plausible that the “debunkers” planted it themselves as an attempt to appear credible while making those sharing it look gullible & foolish, with the ultimate goal of discrediting the entire movement; a well known political disinformation tactic. Indisputably, shills get recruited to infiltrate social media for these kinds of purposes: Definition of an internet shill

Climate engineering field experiments are not only possible, but probable, when we dig beyond the mainstream disinformation.

Novim Climate Engineering Streaks
NOVIM Climate Engineering Research “Comtrails” – what a coincidence.

For example, this is the site photo of the scientific research company, Novim, contracted by a team of geoengineers, including Ken Caldeira and David Keith, in 2009 to do a decade long agenda of climate engineering “research” including field experiments: http://www.novim.org/projects/climate-engineering Doesn’t this photo look amazingly like the heavy persistent streaks we often observe in our sky? Novim entitled their photo, “comtrails”, their technical term for chemical-contrails so as not be confused with “chemtrails”, a trigger word used in the mainstream, previously referenced as exotic weapons in Bill HR2977 introduced by Senator Dennis Kucinich, October 2, 2001, (B)-(ii): Bill H.R.2977 HR107th Congress (2001-2002)

Let’s use our critical thinking skills and ask ourselves, since Novim, (along with other research companies), have been researching climate engineering including field experiments for the past five years during their ten year agenda that began in 2009, isn’t it possible that the heavy persistent streaks we often observe in our global skies are indeed the result of climate engineering field experiments, and that “denial” is a tactic used by the “debunkers”, (shills), in the mainstream to convince the public it isn’t happening in order to keep it covert and prevent public outcry?

Because, in all the “debating & denial”, there has been no mention of how science actually works, (other than generic inapplicable text-speak on how water vapor contrails are formed). In science, a hypothesis is formed and experimentation follows. Therefore, it stands to reason that geoengineers wouldn’t submit their ideas for implementation, as they continue to openly do, unless they have first tested them. Watch the clip of Geoengineer David Keith on Colbert Nation where he admits his solution is to dump 20,000 tons of SULPHURIC ACID into the stratosphere: Geoengineer David Keith on Colbert Nation

The disinformation shills’ (“debunkers”) logic is deeply flawed and their outlandish demand for unattainable “proof” is a tactic used to distract and create doubt. Anyone that has taken basic science in school understands that field experiments are an integral part of any scientific endeavor. Scientific Method. Notice in this basic science flowchart that experimentation happens TWICE in order for the conclusion “final statement” to be reached.

Flowchart

However, according to the “chemtrail debunkers“, geoengineers do not follow the basic rules of science and are not now, nor have they ever been, performing any experimentation whatsoever, haha.

Why waste time on the mainstream pseudoscience junk sites ran by a gamer that fancies himself a “debunker”, when we can bypass the mainstream hype and through scholar searches find credible sites such as, “Integrated Assessment of Geoengineering Proposals”, and ask ourselves, would they really put this much time and effort into something that hasn’t already been field tested to some degree? Integrated Assessment of Geoengineering Proposals Research: http://www.iagp.ac.uk/iagp-research

Take time to watch the NASA Von Karman Lecture with Riley Duren, Principal Engineer and Chief Systems Engineer for the Earth Science Directorate at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. entitled, “Geoengineering and Climate Intervention – What We Need To Know“, he explains geoengineering in understandable terms, and at one point, states that anyone can perform field experiments if they have the motivation and the resources. Given this information, it’s entirely possible that global climate engineering experiments have indeed been occurring insidiously, adversely, affecting our health and environment. Denial of the “possibility”, is either the highest form of ignorance, or intentional deceit to dupe an honest public.

Videos such as the ‘pilot/chemtrail’ that suddenly go viral and immediately get “debunked” are often intentionally planted to discredit the awareness movement. To avoid this trap, stick to solid, reputable information such as the links provided in this post.

If you’re going to share links on social media, trust your own videos & photos or ones whose source you can verify. Please be wary of suddenly viral stuff floating around on the internet with no references or traceable location, including memes, photos, and videos. Do not be so quick to share them, because it isn’t helping increase awareness if it ultimately discredits us.

Regardless of whether that video is really of a pilot that “forgot to turn off his chemical spray nozzles”, a normal jet fuel landing dump, or a disinformation plant that’s been Photoshopped, the fact remains climate engineering experiments are happening and plenty of solid information backs it up. It doesn’t take an expert in aviation or atmospheric science to look up and notice the abnormal crisscrossing persistent contrails lingering in the sky, whitening it and blocking the sun.

Believe your own eyes, trust yourself, and refuse to fall for the mainstream peer pressure of the “denier” herd mentality due to the rampant PROPAGANDA that has infiltrated our social media, because that’s what they are counting on.

Redding’s Record Searchlight Allows Editorial Skewing of the Shasta Board Meeting

Redding’s Record Searchlight Allows Editorial Skewing of the Shasta Board Meeting

I wonder if the Record Searchlight, along with all the other disinformation media sources, are forgetting that there is a documented video of the entire Shasta County California Board of Supervisors Hearing of July 15, 2014. No matter how hard the media tries to “spin” it, the video below is what REALLY happened. Aside from one or two random people that misrepresented the issue (inevitable in any public forum), the expertise, credibility, qualifications, and solid reputation of the primary speakers, and most of the volunteer speakers, were entirely overlooked by the Record Searchlight, as was the fact that the Board voted unanimously to investigate geoengineering based on said testimony and concrete data presented therein.

The video speaks for itself.

SHASTA BOARD OF SUPERVISOR’S MEETING

JULY 15, 2014

———————————————————————————————————

“Record Searchlight” – Shasta County’s Most Disreputable News Source

The “Record Searchlight” is not only perpetuating propaganda, but is an accomplice to crimes against humanity by allowing the blatant disinformation editorial below to be published. They have put themselves in a position to be held liable in the future by willfully aiding and abetting this global crime.

After the Record Searchlight’s support of the demeaning response to the moving speeches and compelling testimony given by experts in the fields of science, aviation, medicine, military, agriculture and more, it is clear that they are contributing propagandists, intentionally spreading disinformation.

Hundreds of people in attendance bore witness to three hours of an unprecedented presentation of FACTS, irrefutable data, statistics, laws, and photos, with heartfelt stories by the concerned citizens of Shasta County, CA, many of whom are experts in their respective fields. This included visiting speakers from other regions in the United States, and as far as Spain, to offer support by sharing their experiences with global stratospheric aerosol geoengineering. This is not an issue to be marginalized as the Record Searchlight has chosen to allow.

The “spin” below is the known disinformation tactic of false association using the old CIA coined term “conspiracy theorist” angle to deflect focus from the truth for the purpose of suppressing awareness to prevent public outcry. It’s pure PROPAGANDA. Anyone with the ability for critical thinking can see through this disrespectful, misleading “pseudo-news” editorial, and Record Searchlight’s flagrant disregard for the health and well being of the public, including that of their own readers by supporting the following “editorial”.

Editorial: Time wasted on frivolous conspiracies  6:00 PM, Jul 17, 2014

“Surely you’ve seen those suspicious contrail patterns in the sky, and, by golly, they seem to be increasing and hanging around way too long. Did you know they can cause a variety of ailments from cancer to fibers growing out of your skin to just feeling downright punky? In case you haven’t heard, those contrails – those in the know call them chemtrails – are the result of your government’s attempts to “geoengineer” your environment. So despite the obvious health problems they’re causing for themselves and others, government operatives (we’re not exactly clear on who “they” are) are secretly pumping heavy metals into planes at public airports and military bases and those planes are dispersing the poison into our atmosphere.

And because what goes up must come down, those poisons are dropping back down on all of us, polluting our air and water and causing climate change. Did you know that the drought is a myth? It’s kind of dry this year, but geoengineering is making it seem worse than it is. Gives us a headache just thinking about it.

We suspect some of the Shasta County supervisors are still nursing their own headaches after listening to hours of passionate conspiracy theories at Tuesday’s meeting, which generated what might have been the biggest turnout for a board meeting in recent history. It was bigger, even, than the State of Jefferson presentations earlier this year. People were literally sitting on the floor.

Supervisor Pam Giacomini put the item on the agenda and, as is their collegial custom, the other supervisors went along with it. Giacomini has said her constituents asked to be heard. Chief among them is Dane Wigington of Bella Vista. For years he’s been pushing his theories to anyone who will listen and he runs geoengineeringwatch.org. Wigington orchestrated the lineup of “experts” who spoke to the board Tuesday and guaranteed a big crowd by previewing his presentation at a local tea party meeting Monday night. When it was finally over, Wigington and company were pleased. Elected officials had finally given them a very public platform for their theories. But now they’re spinning the story that the supervisors actually supported them.

That couldn’t be farther from the truth. The supervisors have absolutely no authority or responsibility to conduct an investigation into chemtrail conspiracies. Not one of them said he or she agreed with the theories. Supervisors did vote on a motion — and the vote was unanimous. They’ll forward the information presented by the crowd to the state and federal environmental protection agencies and will send along videos of the four-hour marathon meeting so state and federal officials can see the emotion-packed presentations with their own eyes. Finally, they asked county Resource Manager Rick Simon to take a look at whether the county can test for heavy metals on a nano-level and how much that might cost.

Basically that puts the issue in the staff’s hands from now on. The supervisors gave folks their say and they’re done with it. We think it was pretty generous of the supervisors to listen to the presentation in the first place. They don’t have jurisdiction. They’re busy people and four hours is an awfully long time to devote to something you can’t do anything about. They don’t automatically owe constituents a platform, especially on a half-baked theory that’s repeatedly been debunked by credible scientists.

Think about it. Seriously. Even if mad government scientists didn’t care whether they were poisoning us, why would they do themselves in at the same time? Seen a lot of scientists walking around in gas masks or chemical suits lately? By the way – contrails, even those that spread out into strange patterns and linger longer, have been around since World War II or earlier. There are lots of old books, newspaper articles and other accounts and plenty of authentic photographs to prove it. Next time something like this comes to their attention, even if lots of people seem to support it, we hope the supervisors graciously decline to play host.

That’s exactly what the Redding City Council did Tuesday night in a consensus reached at Missy McArthur’s suggestion. They let their staff know that they do not want to discuss geoengineering or anything related to it. Good call. Here in the real world, we have actually problems that urgently need our leaders’ attention.” — end.

The people’s response:

“Record Searchlight editorial reflects desperation. Mainstream media’s job is to spin or otherwise hide realities that are not helpful to the “official” narrative of the government and government agencies. Marginalizing the legitimate and verifiable concerns of local citizens when those concerns go against “the grain” is business as usual for media corporations. Isn’t it interesting that the Searchlight’s editorial never even mentioned the primary and indisputable concern brought forth by the citizens in this meeting?

There is a recent and indisputable heavy metal contamination all over the North State (and the world). The Supervisors were presented with 30+ lab tests proving this contamination locally, all testing was done at a state certified lab. There is also the issue of very dangerous UV radiation which is not being reported by agencies. This fact is also indisputable and there is peer reviewed science study to back it up. Again, not a word about this from the Searchlight. And the editorial’s mocking of “experts” as if they were not qualified is patently false.

Did they mention the credentials of those speaking? No. No mention of the USFS biologist, the California Fish and Game biologist, the former defense industry expert, local physicians, former commercial pilots, etc.

The roll of mainstream media today in too many cases is to hide the criminal behavior of the government. “Scripps-Howard” owns the Searchlight, this broadcasting corporation has a history of close cooperation with government agencies, this is well documented for anyone that takes the time to investigate. The Searchlight editorial on the July 15th supervisors meeting wreaks of ideology, spin, and bias, this should be a big red flag to all.” — end

Thank you to each and every concerned citizen that stood brave in the face of adversity to address the Board, you are truly commendable and should serve as a shining example to the rest of the world. Our deepest appreciation for your collective efforts to protect humanity and our planet. ~Rebel Siren

 In 1967 the CIA coined the term “conspiracy theorist”. Specifically, in April 1967, the CIA wrote a dispatch which coined the term “conspiracy theories” … and recommended methods for discrediting such theories.  The dispatch was marked “psych” –  short for “psychological operations” or disinformation –  and “CS” for the CIA’s “Clandestine Services” unit. (The dispatch was produced in responses to a Freedom of Information Act request by the New York Times in 1976).

The CULT – Jim Jones’ disciples had nothing on these facebook trolls

INTERNET TROLL DEFINITION

Internet Troll: An Internet Troll is a colloquial expression used to define an online user who uses Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to purposely and actively provoke, defame, anger, tease, flame, or incite other online users. More often than not, the Internet Troll does not know the target recipient(s) of their vitriolic statements and behaviors. Internet Trolls regularly appear in all forms of online mediums ranging from online gaming gatherings to chatroom and forum discussions.

When the Internet Troll’s inflammatory statements and actions do not include a direct or implied physical threat to the target(s), their behavior is categorizes as cyber harassment. If the Troll’s verbal assaults include direct or implied physical threats to their target(s), their actions are then defined as cyberstalking. Canadian researchers have concluded that internet trolls are at higher rates for narcissism, machiavellianism, psychopathy and sadism.

The motivations for an Internet Troll’s provocative, and often times, bizarre behaviors are numerous. Despite the variations in modus operandi, the vast majority of Trolls are seeking attention, recognition, stimulation pseudo-notoriety and retribution for some unknown perceived injustice. Although there is no hard evidence or clinical research validating the psychology of the Internet Troll, it is commonly believed that the “Veil of Anonymity” afforded to every online user inspire Trolls to engage in egregious behaviors.

Psychology Today: “… the associations between sadism and GAIT (Global Assessment of Internet Trolling) scores were so strong that it might be said that online trolls are prototypical everyday sadists.” –

Gauging the amount of hostile, full page comments I received from psychopathic sadists (see references above), and chose not to allow due to my comment policy stated at the end of the article that they obviously failed to comprehend, in response to Dispelling internet disinformation tactics – debunking the debunkers, many facebook troll-cult members, also known as trolls/shills/deniers/cyberbullies, were upset because they weren’t included in the list of known offenders and did not receive any attention. I decided to do this follow up piece and oblige their request for the spotlight, and offer a “heads up” to the unsuspecting social media public about the rampant troll-cult scouring the internet for the sole purpose of harassing others.

The following list is not exhaustive, it begins with their leader, and may also include other various geoengineering proponents, deniers & their supporters. All are PUBLIC facebook profiles. We will edit this post to include more screenshots of the over 200+ cult member profiles, as time allows.

This should suffice in giving this whiny, self righteous, bullying CULT all the attention they deserve for doing their worst to suppress awareness, including relentlessly attacking the character of anyone that dares to speak up to protect humanity; with their relentless and transparent tactics, displaying their selfish, narcissistic, anti-humanitarian behavior.

This CULT and its geoengineering proponents and/or “denial” supporters whether knowingly or unwittingly, target and publicly harass anyone that they perceive has “beliefs” that differ from their own. That is pure discrimination, yet is rampant on our social media forums, and will continue unless we start speaking out against it. A couple of these profiles may be actual names, but the majority are fakes, take a close look.

This CULT chooses to focus solely on proving others wrong, rather than doing anything constructive to benefit humanity. Their negativity is only overshadowed by their ignorance and/or willful suppression of awareness to aid and abet what is surely going to go down in history as the biggest crime against humanity this world will ever see, and undoubtedly the last because when the climate system collapses, there will be life on this planet no more.

Some of these compiled screenshots include a few of their fake public pages designed to make fun of legitimate pages concerned with health and the environment, like Food Babe. All this cult knows how to do is attack, make fun of, and name call, just like bullies on the playground in elementary school.

Rusty TannerFAKE facebook page targeting activist Russ Tanner. Character Assassination is the number one tactic designed to discredit people. Putting others down to make themselves appear “credible”. Report the FAKE PAGE on facebook to help get it promptly removed. It is targeting someone with an illness and illegally using Russ Tanner’s image. Despicable display of shillidiocy running amok.

Below is an example of how they spend their time, attacking whistle-blower Kristen Meghan’s inkwork? This is a perfect example of the cult putting others down to make themselves feel bigger. They pick on anything and everything in an attempt to discredit others. It’s a waste of valuable time and speaks volumes as to the lack of character of these cult disciples. Blank stare, soulless, lost. Sad that they can’t think of anything better to do with their time. Out of all the ills of our society and planet in desperate need of solutions, THIS is what they choose to focus on? Shameful. Such a disgrace to humanity. Incidentally, we love Kristen Meghan’s tatoos and see the trolls for what they are… insecure, ignorant bullies.

Getting into a “debate” with a cult member online is reminiscent of a grade school argument with a “copy cat” bully. When we say they should get their head out of the sand, they repeat, “get your head out of the sand”. When we say, wake up, they say, “wake up”, when we say that they are subscribing to pseudoscience, they repeat, “that’s pseudoscience”, except they usually misspell it. We recommend that honest people avoid their fake pages and refuse to get into futile debates with them for the aforementioned reasons. Save yourselves the frustration because the cult trolls are not worth your time.

The cult uses a tactic that likens those that are aware of geoengineering to religious zealots, but it’s in fact, that is precisely what THEY are. It is an incorrect description to say that there is “belief” in geoengineering; there is knowledge that it’s happening with an overwhelming sense of responsibility to our children, their future children, and all life on this planet, to do our best to use appropriate channels to put an end to this dangerous scheme.

It’s not like there is a “church of geoengineering” where people worship chem-planes, like the cult apparently does. Did you get a load of “International Chemtrail Association” listed above? Their motto is “darker, safer skies” or some drivel like that designed to ridicule the movement for health and sustainability that is beyond disrespectful to the efforts of all that are working diligently to save this planet and all life on it.  The denier cult is an affront to every living thing and the planet itself.

Makes us wonder if the deniers have ever stopped to consider the magnitude of the ramifications that will surely manifest when they end up wrong? How terribly ignorant and/or devious they’ll end up looking when the truth finally comes out into the open as it slowly and surely is. What are they getting out of such vehement denial without taking into consideration the consequences that their stance may be unfounded, as intelligent people would do? They exhibit the fervor of a CULT. Some of the cult members think it’s funny to be a paid shill and put it on their facebook profiles, others obviously couldn’t care less about future sustainability or life on this planet and that is their motivation, as their behavior clearly dictates.  If they had a shred of humanity, why would they be operating out of such zealot like behavior just to prove they’re in the majority? In true copycat fashion, the cult continues calling us the “status quo” while simultaneously claiming they are in the “majority”, but it cannot be BOTH. It’s either one or the other. Well, cult trolls, which is it? Are we in the “majority” or are you? Make up your minds because the revolving door of lies and betrayal to the human race is dizzying.

Why do the cult trolls waste their time on a bunch of “crazy conspiracy theorists that are not to be taken seriously” anyway?  What’s it to them?

Hmm, let’s think about the true motives behind their actions? Could it be deception and disinformation at work to suppress awareness and prevent public outcry because an ignorant public is a compliant public? BINGO.

Comments by honest people will be accepted. Troll comments will NOT and frankly, we don’t care how much the cult trolls whine about it, we laugh at their pathetic attempts to invade the blog with their rehearsed, memorized, regurgitating baseless spews, whining that they’re being “censored”, as if. There is a difference between censorship and having the right to not be discriminated against and abused. “Baseless” is another word they like mimicking, “you’re baseless“, usually misspelling “you’re”.

Again, since the cult members have the mentality of 12 year old bullies, we’ll spell it out in Pig Latin especially for them, “uckfae ouyae, ultcae”.

“The Cult” part two will be published shortly revealing more offenders to be on the lookout for.

Novim – just science. http://www.novim.org/projects/climate-engineering

Even if geoengineering weren’t happening already despite the overwhelming visible evidence we observe in the sky and conclusive lab results from all over globe, (we all know field experimentation is a crucial aspect of science despite the debunkers claims that no experimentation has been, or ever will, happen), then prospectively, it will only be a matter of time before it is openly implemented. Either way, why such vehement denial in the mainstream and all over social media? What would be in it for the denier cult trolls unless they’re either getting paid to suppress awareness, or have fallen prey to the  tactics used on them?

This one below left a (disallowed) comment comparing geoengineering awareness to a “cult“, haha! He couldn’t think of anything better than that? This is just another in the growing list of immature, self centered “copy cats” with no concern for humanity or sustainability of this planet, serving as the perfect example of everything this blog outlined above, proving the point. “Supastar DJ Bob” and all the other cult minions only have the capacity for mimicking and insults. Do we seriously want to listen to a word they have to say about science or anything else for that matter? Mick West must be so proud.
