In His walk on the earth the Lord Jesus dismissed the children of Israel for refusing to see with their own eyes the miracles He wrought, and to believe the signs they provided as to whom He is. He offered miracles that they might believe Him to be the son of God, but instead the Pharisees and lawyers hassled him and demanded a sign. They wanted a miracle then and there, as might a front-row member of an audience demand a magic trick from a performer. And the reports of His mercies and eye-witness accounts were not enough to convince them of anything, for their hearts were hardened.
Just as those ancient people demanded a proof they would not see, Americans receive regular visitations from on high and ignore evidence of a great power, a mighty display of legal and technological supremacy. Above their cities and farms, above their riverfronts and sprawling residential subdivisions, above their ports and highways it regularly appears.
But few are alarmed or impressed. We make nothing of septic skies and horizons ulcerated by jet flights that curl out into a blanket eight miles above treelines and hilltops.
Wave crests over the land
The literature on solar radiation management (SRM is the scientific term for sky striping) indicates our insouscience is a fault. It suggests today’s demonstration over Chattanooga and Hamilton County, Tenn., is federal environmental modification, or weather management, a well-developed albeit national security-shrouded scheme whose doings are declared by an EPA FAQ to be water vapor contrails.
The U.S. operates in Tennessee and in your state by virtue of international authority obtained at the founding in 1789. Usually, this government pours upon us through the detail of interstate commerce, an elastic constitutional provision allowing no few despotisms. The sea sloshes over the land, if you will, whenever the U.S. exercises control in commerce (just like bluecoats flooding the Southland during the war to prevent Southern independence). In wartime mode, the rationale is still maritime, and is brutish. Uncle’s “enmod” is “national security,” a rationale that deflects liability for a multitude of sins and hidden purposes and spurns accountability to civilian authority.
Regularly, the white curlings of “negative emissions” roll across the land’s cities, only to be dissipated a day later by wind currents. In my hometown, three days this week — Tuesday, Wednesday and today (Feb. 3, 4, 6, 2015).
Sky striping is a prophylactic to spare the surface of the earth a slight measure of the sun. As espoused in popular literature and engineering trade publications, the goal is to use white pollution to counter centuries of earlier anthropogenic (manmade) causes — black pollution, if you will, from the Industrial Revolution said to be still hanging about and heating the planet.
At best it is a program whose military and contract staffers are gratified they are serving the national interest and maybe even saving lives. At worst, the deep state program is a cockeyed war against the sun a la Cervantes’ Don Quixote, bringing with it an unwitting reduction in photosynthesis, a 20 percent cut in evaporation rates, global alterations of the hydrological cycles, a skydome that is intensifying harmful radiation and trapping heat under a blanket of suspended glittery plasma.
Telling clues — even in dismissive media
Two bits of American journalism Feb. 5 leave a muddled impression of what I suspect is the true story of an active U.S. solar radiation management.
➤ Las Vegas TV station 8newsnow goes into great depth in “Chemtrails open skies to debate,” with chief investigative reporter George Knapp leading his lengthy piece with photographs of a bizarre plume coagulating like a white turd.
➤ National Journal discusses how “conspiracy theorists” who hold that today’s horizons are policy skies and not mere happenstance are tweeting images of chemtrails with geolocation data to their congressmen and demanding action for violations of civil rights.
➤ On Jan. 29, researchers who favor chemtrailing as a global warming remedy say it promises to bring a new cause for war. “Unilateral deployment could get ugly quickly,” they explain. “Suppose that Bangladesh, suffering ever more severe floods and storms as a result of global warming, took matters into its own hands and initiated solar geoengineering. How would the politicians in New Delhi react if India were hit by a drought or a typhoon in the years that followed? Some people, possibly many, would blame the geoengineering. Would Delhi then resort to sanctions or military force?”
Sky striping casino (wheel keeps spinning)
The Las Vegas TV report offers as its news peg a jet trail “like puffs of exhaust that had been crammed together.” Two authorities debate whether the plume came from a warplane from a nearby base. “There is no question the so-called chemtrail conspiracy has morphed into one of the largest and most enduringly dark tales of the Internet age. Millions of people are watching the skies and taking photos to try and figure out what is happening,” Mr. Knapp and Matt Adams report. “Is someone really spraying stuff into the atmosphere? Some conspiracies, after all, turn out to be true and governments conspire to do bad things all the time.”
Sky plumes increasing
The station first reported on chemtrails in the 1990s and says in the 2015 report that sky stripes are on the increase.
Yet the Internet is filled with websites promoting the chemtrail controversy. Why such broad appeal? The answer is as close as one’s front yard. The skies over Las Vegas are often criss-crossed with gigantic white lines that don’t immediately fade away. The contrails morph into clouds. One thing is certain. There are more of these contrails than in past years.
While the report says “[t]here is no question that stuff is being sprayed into our skies for a lot of different reasons,” it says, “evidence of a global chemtrail conspiracy is weak. Just because lines can be seen in the skies doesn’t mean people below are being poisoned or climate is being manipulated” (italics added). Extended contrails occur, it says, because air traffic is up 250 percent over 10 years. Oooh-kay.
Las Vegas TV quotes filmmaker George Barnes as saying prior to 2006 sky grid patterns did not occur as they do “more and more frequently” now.
Mr. Barnes, who made a sky striping film “Look Up,” is gaining notice. National Journal reports he’s helping others bombard elected officials using tweets and his Skyder Alert app. “The debate over geoengineering is heating up, although with no real work being done,” National Journal assures readers. Environmentalist critics of chemtrailing such as Dane Wigington are preterist (chemtrailing is not prophecy, but already in the past, already fulfilled). The journal takes a futurist approach (chemtrailing is a vague idea and a future technology). Its proofs on sky striping as mere prospect:
➤ A U.N. panel discusses “its possibilities, but notes a lack of evidence” of an existing program.
➤ Newsweek in a Page 1 article “examined [sky striping’s] potential.”
➤ A pending National Research Council report will examine a “limited number of potential” geoengineering techniques.
Sky hacking = nuclear bomb
The Washington Post essay co-authored by famous geoengineering booster David Keith describes the goal of solar radiation management without letting the reader perceive the program is in progress. It states boldly that the first “small-scale, real-world experiments” in SRM “are taking shape and, if they can secure funding, could begin within two years” (italics mine).
The photo gallery above, you should be led to understand, is non-news, not important, and not policy.
Though an aficionado for chemtrailing, Mr. Keith admits nation-states’ enmod programs are a sure cause of conflict ahead. “[J]ust as home thermostats are notorious for setting off domestic squabbles — she bumps it up to 72, he ratchets it down to 64 — solar geoengineering could spark serious conflicts, ranging from sanctions to war between world powers. The question is: How should we approach technology with such lifesaving potential when it could also disrupt the international order on a scale not seen since the advent of the atom bomb?”
Billboards we can’t read
The children of Israel sought a sign that Christ is the Messiah and savior of His people, but Jesus refused to perform magic tricks for their consumption. Instead, He healed the sick, raised the dead, read secret thoughts of his enemies, forgave whoredoms, escaped through crowds intending to stone him. The hearts of many among that people were stone, and their destruction was near at the point of a Roman army.
What are we to make of our powers of observation that see milky white sky every other day but don’t see them? The skeptics are right: Sky-altering flights are routine and innocuous, and sky striping as policy is two years out, awaiting tests. Either that, or a few lone environmentalists are right: Sky striping is an official pollution in a purported climate altering program, seeding to the tips of our tongues and the hairs in our nostrils a constant microscopic payload of aersolized manmade particles, possibly aluminium.
My regard for the U.S. federal government is too great to imagine it does not have global warming well in hand and that it is morally capable of playing both sides of the conflict — of suffocating the planet with aerosols to heat it, and imposing a suicidal deindustrialization and stricter management of people and economic life by EPA, as they endured during World War II. In mass surveillance, in imaginative prosecutions, in toyings with terrorists, in coercion through school systems, the U.S. is given to colossalism and bifurcation, to deception and decapitalization.
Mr. Keith in his Washington Post essay argues for the negative emissions that turn Chattanooga from the 1960s smudgepot to the 2015 hazepot. “Although the concept of injecting sulfur dioxide into the stratosphere has so far been tested only using computer simulations, there’s high confidence that it would work to cool the Earth ***. A gram of aerosol in the stratosphere, delivered perhaps by high-flying jets, could offset the warming effect of a ton of carbon dioxide, a factor of 1 million to 1. The tiny sulfate aerosols would stay up there, reflecting away a small amount of sunlight, for a year or two, so the material would need to be continually renewed for as long as the cooling effect was needed.”
Chattanooga’s overhead injections are indeed “continually renewed.” We have signs of motive, signs of means, signs of execution — a row of billboards — but no eye with which to read them.
