Dr. Henry Spratt explains how “albedo modification” would work to cool the planet, at least in theory. But a mass stratospheric aerosol injection program (chemtrailing) could have the opposite effect of trapping heat, he suggests. He’s on for an hour on Nooganomics.com the show, talking about sky striping as a theory with my listener at Hot News Talk Radio 1240 910 1190 AM in Chattanooga.
Points of law that might be new to you: You cannot defend constitutional rights in a city court, which operates under what’s called private law. But you can appeal a negative verdict in city court to a constitutional court (a real court, if you will) and get a completely new trial. If you are hauled before a city court on a charge of violating a state law, you can “waive” the court and have your case sent to your citizen peers — to the grand jury. Please read more.

City government’s debt is close to $1 billion, with its obligations for obligations for principal and interest in the next 19 years supporting operation of a variety of governmental and commercial enterprises.
The “total government primary debt” is $977.64 million, with about a fourth of it — $278.99 million — being interest. Interest is the charge laid against the city by companies that create credit (new money) in the fractional reserve lending process (inflation).
The categories of debt include HUD loans; 2008 Hennen notes payable; hotel-motel tax; general improvement bonds; interceptor sewer system; solid waste/sanitation fund; water quality fund; downtown redevelopment corporation bonds; and EPB.
The biggest slab of debt is created by EPB, with the total obligation at $429.76 million payable through 2034.
In the city accounting for fiscal 2013-2014, the metropolitan airport authority and half a million in Carta debt are outside the tally, with IOUs totaling F$19.51 million.

They rediscover a lost joy: “Personal is better than corporate.” Please read more.
What happens when governments believe they must control the weather to save the planet and confound their enemies? Is the rise in global temperatures a mere pretext to seize greater control of national economies and industry? Is the use of jet aircraft to smog up the sky good in deflecting sunlight — but bad in trapping heat, exacerbating the overheating problem? Please read more.
