    Unedited full text

    Budgetmakers in the U.S. Senate want the Department of Energy (DOE) to study the possibility of making Earth reflect more sunlight into space to fight global warming. Earth’s reflectivity is known as its albedo, and the request to study “albedo modification” comes in the details of a proposed spending bill passed by the Senate appropriations committee to fund DOE, the Army Corps of Engineers, and related agencies for fiscal year 2017, which begins 1 October. The bill does not specify how much money should be spent on the research.

    Critics argue that albedo modification and other “geoengineering” schemes are risky and would discourage nations from trying to reduce their emissions of carbon dioxide, the heat-trapping gas that comes from the burning of fossil fuels and that is causing global warming by absorbing increasing amounts of energy from sunlight. Still, climate researchers say they should find out what its potential of albedo modification might be.

    “The recommendation is great,” says Joyce Penner, an atmospheric scientist at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Albedo modification “is not a solution to global warming, it is only a way to avoid, perhaps, a tipping point in the climate.” David Keith, an atmospheric physicist at Harvard University, says, “Ignorance is not a good basis for making decisions, so learning more about this is extremely valuable even if we find out that it will never work.” Keith adds, however, that the few existing studies suggest albedo modification could help ameliorate some effects of global warming.

    The call for further research comes in a bill that would provide $5.4 billion for DOE’s Office of Science next year. It also builds on the recommendations of a February 2015 report from the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) entitled Climate Intervention: Reflecting Sunlight to Cool Earth. That report warned explicitly that albedo modification shouldn’t be deployed now because the risks and benefits were far too uncertain. Still, the committee urged further research to find out what those risks and benefits might be.

    The Senate appropriations committee wants DOE to do that research. “As other nations have launched research programs on albedo modification, the Committee recommends the Department review the findings of the NAS report … and leverage existing computational and modeling capabilities to explore potential impacts of albedo modification,” says a report that accompanies the Senate budget bill. The direction is included in a section outlining priorities for the Office of Science program in biological and environmental research, which currently has an annual budget of $609 million.

    Albedo modification would work by lacing the atmosphere with tiny particles or aerosols that would reflect sunlight and mimic natural processes. For example, in 1991 the volcano Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines spewed 20 million tons of sulfur dioxide into the stratosphere, which spans altitudes from 10 to 50 kilometers. There, the sulfur dioxide produced aerosols that reflected enough sunlight to reduce global temperature by an estimated 0.3°C for 3 years. Albedo modification might also work by using aerosols to seed cloud formation in a lower atmospheric layer called the troposphere.

    However, the NAS report also noted that the potential effects of albedo modification remain poorly understood and quantified. Scientists lack even the observational tools to measure the effects of albedo modification, the report states. To make up for those shortcomings, the report called for a research program, including smaller scale field trials, whose goal “should be to improve understanding of the range of climate and other environmental effects of albedo modification, as well as understanding of unintended impacts.”

    For decades studying albedo modification has been taboo in the United States, Keith says, for fear that it would distract from the ultimate goal of zeroing out carbon emissions. But given the potentially catastrophic effects of global warming, scientists have an obligation to study the idea, he says. “Because the burden will fall so disproportionately on the poor I think there’s a moral imperative to do it,” he says.

    Even if albedo modification won’t work, the research would pay big dividends, Penner predicts. Among the most uncertain elements in climate models are the effects of aerosols and their interactions with clouds—just the things involved in albedo modification—she says. Because of those uncertainties, researchers can estimate only that doubling atmospheric carbon dioxide from preindustrial levels would increase global temperature between 1°C and 5°C. “If we knew the aerosol forcing we could reduce that range,” Penner says.

    If the federal government turns a blind eye to albedo modification, the research will be done anyway by countries such as China and researchers sponsored by nongovernmental organizations such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Keith says.

    So the real choice is between exploring albedo modification openly or in relative secrecy, he says: “I believe in sunshine and democracy, and I really think this should be done by the U.S. government and in a transparent way.”

    The Senate language is a long way from becoming law. The full Senate has yet to act on the measure, which ultimately would have to be reconciled with DOE spending levels approved by the House of Representatives. Any final bill would have to be signed by the president.

    Climate Intervention
    Carbon Dioxide Removal and Reliable Sequestration
    Reflecting Sunlight to Cool Earth
    CLIMATE INTERVENTION IS NO SUBSTITUTE
    for reductions in carbon dioxide emissions andadaptation efforts aimed at reducing the negative consequences of climate change. However, as our planet enters a period of changing climate never before experienced in recorded human history, interest is growing in the potential for deliberate intervention in the climate system to counter climate change.
    ——–
    This study assesses the potential impacts, benefits, and costs of two different proposed classes of climate intervention:
    (1) carbon dioxide removal and
    (2) albedo modification (reflecting sunlight). Carbon dioxide removal strategies address a key driver of climate change, but research is needed to fully assess if any of these technologies could be appropriate for large-scale deployment. Albedo modification strategies could rapidly cool the planet’s surface but pose environmental and other risks that are not well understood and therefore should not be deployed at climate-altering
    scales; more research is needed to determine if albedo modification approaches could be viable in the future.
    ———————————————-
    To date, most research on countering the impacts of climate change has focused on
    mitigating climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions or on adapting human and natural systems to make them more resilient to the effects of a changing climate. In contrast, climate intervention—purposeful intervention in the climate system to counter climate change—has received little attention.
    ———————————————–
    Despite growing interest in climate intervention (also called geoengineering)
    ———————————————————————-
    over recent years, there is a lack of information on the impacts, benefits, and costs of these technologies. These reports provide a scientific assessment to help inform the technological, ethical, legal, economic, and political discussions surrounding the topic of climate intervention.
    ———————————————————-
    Box 1.
    Proposed Climate Intervention Strategies
    This study considers two proposed classes of climate intervention:

    Carbon dioxide removal strategies would actively remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and sequester it reliably.–

    Albedo modification strategies would reduce the amount of sunlight absorbed by Earth in order to cool the planet’s surface.
    As the Committee analyzed specific carbon dioxide removal and albedo modification
    strategies, it became apparent that there are vast differences in the research needs, and the extent of the environmental and social risks associated with the two classes of approaches.This led the Committee to separate the climate intervention topics considered in this study into two separate reports
    ———————————————–
    Box 2.
    Carbon Dioxide Removal Strategies
    Considered in This Study
    •Changes in land use management to enhance natural carbon sinks such as forests and agricultural lands
    •Accelerated weathering in the ocean and on land to enhance natural processes that remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere •Bioenergy with carbon capture and sequestration
    •Direct air capture and sequestration of carbon dioxide
    •Ocean iron fertilization to boost phytoplankton growth
    and enhance take-up of carbon dioxide
    ———————————
    Box 3.
    Albedo Modification Strategies Considered in This Study
    •Stratospheric aerosols that help reflect sunlight back into space
    •Marine cloud brightening to enhance reflection of sunlight
    ———————————————————————-
    ALBEDO MODIFICATION POSES POORLY UNDERSTOOD RISKS
    Theoretical and observational data indicate albedo modification has the potential to offset some of the consequences of global warming within years and at a relatively low direct cost. However, deploying albedo modification techniques at climatically important scales
    would bring an array of environmental, social, legal, economic, ethical, and political risks.

    —————————————————————
    CONCLUSION
    Climate change is a global challenge, and addressing it will require a portfolio of responses with varying degrees of risk and efficacy. There is no substitute for dramatic reductions in greenhouse gas emissions to mitigate the negative consequences of climate change, together with adaptation of human and natural systems to make them more resilient to changing climate.
    However, if society ultimately decides to intervene in Earth’s climate,
    the Committee most strongly recommends any such actions be informed by a far more substantive body of scientific research—
    encompassing climate science and economic, political, ethical, and other dimensions—than is available at present ———————————————————-

    The call for further research comes in a bill that would provide $5.4 billion for DOE’s Office of Science next year.

    It also builds on the recommendations of a February 2015 report from the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) entitled Climate Intervention: Reflecting Sunlight to Cool Earth.

     She’s Just saying… DROUGHT IS A  SHAME

    An unprecedented drought last year and 15 YEARS OF DROUGHT ACROSS THE AMERICAN WEST have demonstrated the need to rethink U.S. water management for the 21st Century. Since 1980, droughts have cost the United States more than $200 billion. The drought last year caused widespread and serious impacts for communities, agriculture, industry and the environment. As drought is predicted to continue in the coming years and as communities throughout the United States face significant water-security challenges, it is a crucial time to evaluate and develop new strategies at the national level.

    Risk Financing for Flood: Emerging Opportunities

    Posted at 1:00 AM ET

    Flood is the largest contributor to catastrophic loss worldwide. Recent initiatives from Guy Carpenter and Marsh & McLennan Companies, both involving the peril of flood, demonstrate the diversity of approaches that can be brought to bear. In the United Kingdom, we are involved in a project where the insurance industry is working in concert with the government to adjust the industry’s approach to the peril of flood and maintain the private sector’s role as the source of insurance protection without a resultant increase in the public sector’s liability.

    IN THE UNITED STATES, A PROJECT IS BEING SPONSORED BY THE FEDERAL EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY AND THE US CONGRESS TO DETERMINE HOW THE NATIONAL FLOOD INSURANCE PROGRAM MIGHT BE PRIVATIZED AND HOW IT MIGHT UTILIZE REINSURANCE TO SUPPORT ITS RISK MANAGEMENT EFFORTS, AND THEREBY MOVE POTENTIAL LOSS EXPOSURE OFF THE PUBLIC BALANCE SHEET.

    Public sector-related data can be expansive, containing census data, property risk characteristics, historical loss information, risk rating matrices and natural hazard event scientific tracking. In order to facilitate packaging the sometimes unwieldy data in a way that is useful for risk decision making, utilizing outside resources to improve data transparency can be valuable. Public sector resources devoted to building tools that measure risks that are perceived as “uninsurable” can unlock private sector funding.

    In addition to internal risk management, models are typically used in risk transfer negotiations. Both traditional and alternative risk markets require extensive analysis of portfolios when considering risk transfer. Sharing a portfolio’s standardized model output is critical to imparting the loss potential of a particular portfolio from which risk-capital can be unlocked to support the risk financing needs of a reinsurance buyer. Using technology is critical when partnering governments with the private sector. Whether partnering with developed or emerging economies, these tools bring together the risk knowledge and historical data of the public sector with risk management techniques of the insurance industry. The result is an enhanced understanding of risk that provides stability and attracts partners.

    US Residual Markets, Part I

    Posted at 1:00 AM ET

    The US residual property insurance market segment is comprised of Fair Access to Insurance Requirements (FAIR) Plans, Beach and Windstorm Plans and two state run insurance companies – Florida Citizens Property Insurance Company (Florida Citizens) and Louisiana Citizens Property Insurance Corporation (Louisiana Citizens). These insurance facilities grew out of the civil strife in the 1960s to ensure continued access to insurance in urban areas. Over time they have evolved and their mandate has grown beyond their urban focus. Today these facilities are significant providers of some of the most wind- and earthquake-exposed property insurance in the country.

    The recent 2015 reinsurance renewals in this area demonstrated further expansion in the manner and means by which these insurance providers utilize private-sector capital to support their businesses. Traditional reinsurance remains a core component of most residual market risk financing programs. Typically these risk financing plans will also rely on retained profit, assessments and debt facilities in concert with the various forms of reinsurance to manage their exposures. The utilization of alternative risk financing capital through catastrophe bonds and/or collateralized reinsurance continues to grow with eight of 12 facilities that utilize traditional reinsurance also accessing risk transfer capacity through catastrophe bonds and/or collateralized reinsurance to help manage their loss exposures. The chart below details the increasingly diverse set of risk financing approaches employed by 11 coastal markets.

    A RECOMMENDED NATIONAL PROGRAM IN WEATHER MODIFICATION INTRODUCTION
    The earth’s Weather has a profound influence on agriculture, forestry, water resources, industry, commerce, transportation, construction, field operations, commercial fishing, and many other human activities. Adverse effects of weather on man’s activities and the earth’s resources are extremely costly, amounting to billions of dollars per year, sometimes causing irreparable damage as when human lives are lost in severe storms. There is, therefore, great motivation to develop effective countermeasures against the destructive effects of weather, and, conversely, to enhance the beneficial aspects. The financial and other benefits to human welfare of being able to modify weather to augment water supplies, reduce lightning, suppress hail, mitigate tornados, and inhibit the full development of hurricanes would be very great.

    ——————————————————————————————-
    Over the past twenty years (1946-1966)experiments have been conducted on weather modification, particularly on the effects of seedinq clouds with such materials as – silver iodide crystals.

    The results are limited. Under suitable circumstances it has been possible to
    augment precipitation by ten to twenty percent, and to reduce the frequency of
    fire-producing lightning strokes. Effects on hail production have been noted, sometimes suppression and sometimes augmentation. These results probably would be of only passing interest were it not for the potential importance to mankind of further progress in this field. Perhaps the most significant result of the experiments to date has been to bring about a change in attitude from one of skepticism to one of cautious optimism. The limited success to date is encouraging, and underscores the importance of pressing forward with the necessary research to understand the dynamics of weather systems that will have to be dealt with in any efforts at WEATHER MODIFICATION. The gradually accumulating evidence of positive results from efforts at WEATHER MODIFICATION led the Committee on Atmospheric Sciences of the National Academy of Sciences, in November 1963,to appoint a Panel on WEATHER AND CLIMATE MODIFICATION “to undertake a deliberate and thoughtful review of the present status and activities in this field and of its potential and limitations for the future.” The Panel made its report at the beginning of this
    calendar year (Ref. 1). The composition of the NAS Panel is given in App. I, together with
    a list of the Panel’s recommendations. Elaboration and discussion of these recommendations may be found in Ref. 1. On June 16, 1964, the Director of the National Science Foundation
    announced the appointment of a Special Commission on WEATHER MODIFICATION. in its
    review of the field, the Commission activated seven subgroups to study the physical, biological, statistical, social, international, legal and legislative, and administration and funding aspects of WEATHER AND CLIMATE MODIFICATION. The membership of the Commission and a list of the principal recommendations of the Commission are attached (App. 11). Further elaboration and discussions of those recommendations may be found in the Commission’s report and the report of the subgroups (Refs. 2 and 3).

    RCW 43.37.210
    LEGISLATIVE DECLARATION.
    The legislature finds and declares that when prolonged lack of precipitation
    or shortages of water supply in the state cause severe hardships affecting
    the health, safety, and welfare of the people of the state, a program to
    increase precipitation is occasionally needed for the generation of
    hydroelectric power, for domestic purposes, and to alleviate hardships
    created by the threat of forest fires and shortages of water for
    agriculture. CLOUD SEEDING has been demonstrated to be such a program of
    weather modification with increasing scientific certainty.

    The science of making rain is relatively settled. CHINA FAMOUSLY USED CLOUD SEEDING TO PREVENT RAIN IN BEIJING DURING THE 2008 SUMMER OLYMPICS, and routinely uses cloud seeding before other holidays. Cloud seeding has been used for decades in the American West as a means of extracting more rainfall for parched areas. The biggest study to date on the effectiveness of cloud seeding determined that it increased precipitation by 5 to 15 percent.

    Cloud Seeding Guarantees Perfect Wedding Weather

    By Bethany Hubbard | March 9, 2015 4:36 pm

    Outdoor weddings are inherently unpredictable. But now even weather can be pre-arranged, for a price.

    London luxury travel company Oliver’s Travels is guaranteeing couples a sunny day for their nuptials courtesy of their Cloud Bursting service. The company will “pop” clouds prior to your big day through a process more commonly known as cloud seeding. The service, which costs about $150,000 and is currently only offered in France, promises to clear up cloudy skies with a little help from atmospheric science.

    Silver Lining

    Here’s how it works. Oliver’s Travels employs a meteorologist to study the selected venue’s weather patterns for a week leading up to the wedding day. Then, over the 24 hours preceding the event, a pilot is dispatched to dissipate potential rainclouds by sprinkling silver iodide particles nearby. Silver iodide, in turn, speeds up the condensation process necessary for rainfall.

    The silver iodide particles attract moisture within the clouds, which then gathers and condenses into ice crystals. Eventually, this condensed moisture rains down, melting as it hits warmer temperatures – essentially draining the cloud of any potential downpours.

    Rain Science

    The science of making rain is relatively settled. China famously used cloud seeding to prevent rain in Beijing during the 2008 Summer Olympics, and routinely uses cloud seeding before other holidays. Cloud seeding has been used for decades in the American West as a means of extracting more rainfall for parched areas. The biggest study to date on the effectiveness of cloud seeding determined that it increased precipitation by 5 to 15 percent.

    The ethics of such weather modification are slightly murkier, however, raising questions of who owns the rain. In one such case, Slutsky vs. City of New York, a country club owner claimed the city’s efforts to induce rain to alleviate drought were ruining his business. Private rain-making efforts, such as those of Oliver’s Travels, are even more complicated, since they aren’t dictated by utilities and local governments but rather consumers. Presently the only restriction the company puts on the service is that it not occur within 30 miles of any airport.

    The New Normal

    “Cloud seeding is now considered a mainstream tool,” says Natasja Rasmussen, head of customer experience at Oliver’s Travels. “New technology provides much more reliable results, meaning we can guarantee the perfect day.”

    The company puts a 100% guarantee on the clear skies provided by the service, excepting any natural disasters such as hurricanes. But they haven’t yet secured any bookings for the service since debuting it earlier this year.

    “The high price means it’s not an option for some couples, but we’ll be excited to see the first booking,” Rasmussen says. “We have had interest from all over the world.”

    (Psalms 135:7). This one verse clearly outlines four aspects of the NATURAL hydrologic cycle: evaporation, wind, electricity, and rain.

    So what’s next for GLOBAL WEATHER MODIFICATION?

    US Climate Change Study Explores Weather Modification

    Hmmm… after 3000 years of  “THE NATURAL HYDROLOGIC CYCLE?”  AND AFTER (41) Global Governments have been attempting to modify, and change the weather in various forms for about the last 70 years?

    NOW AFTER 70 YEARS,  OF MODIFYING GLOBAL WEATHER? THE UNITED STATE IS  FINALLY GOING TO STUDY IT?

    Lord, what  fools those mortals be…

    I am compelled to post this document “Weather Balance By God”

    Ecclesiastes 1:6-7, “The wind blows to the south and turns to the north; round and round it goes, ever returning on its course. All streams flow into the sea, yet the sea is never full. To the place the streams come from, there they return again.

    Here King Solomon, writing 3,000 years ago explains how the oceans are the origin of rain. tells us the wind has currents. This was unknown to  man,

    TODAY SCIENCE HAS DOCUMENTED THE DIRECTION OF WIND CURRENTS AND WIND PATHS. 

     METEOROLOGY OR THE CIRCULATION OF WINDS MOVE BY FIXED LAWS,

    speaks of global wind currents and the earth’s water cycle. “The phrase, ‘the wind blows to the south and turns to the north; round and round it goes, ever returning on its course’ is an accurate and astonishing description of

    the circular flow of air around the earth, called the ‘JET STREAM,’ well known to anyone who watches the evening news weather reports”( also in Isaiah 40:12.)

     THIS IS ONLY A RECENT UNDERSTANDING OF SCIENTISTS.

    As part of the cycle, an electrical field generates within a cloud and acts as a kind of magnetic glue that causes the water particles to adhere to one another. The same field also produces lightning. “He makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth,” writes the psalmist, “he sends lightning with the rain and brings out the wind from his storehouses” (Psalms 135:7). This one verse clearly outlines four aspects of the hydrologic cycle: evaporation, wind, electricity, and rain.

    God “sends lightning with the rain,” Jeremiah says on two separate occasions (Jeremiah 10:13; 51:16). The important emphasis in each case is that rain and electricity are linked.

    A U.S. STUDY is under way to evaluate several possible ways TO LIMIT CLIMATE CHANGE including solar radiation management and carbon dioxide removal.

    The study will primarily be an analysis of peer-reviewed literature, and will not involve any substantial new research, experimentation, or development of new geoengineering technology, spokeswoman Lauren Rugani of the National Academy of Sciences said.

    “The project’s main goal is to provide a technical evaluation of proposed geoengineering techniques such as carbon dioxide removal and solar radiation management,

    TO DETERMINE WHAT WE KNOW AND DON’T KNOW ABOUT THEIR PHYSICAL CAPABILITIES, TECHNICAL FEASIBILITIES, KNOWN RISKS, AND INTENDED OR UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES,” Rugani said.

    The evaluation would include general comments on how using such technology may impact the environment, economy and national security. THE STUDY COMMITTEE INCLUDES EXPERTS in oceanography, earth sciences, environmental sciences, remote sensing, global ecology, marine chemistry and geochemistry, public policy, history of science, atmospheric and climate science and national security, Rugani said.

    Most of the proposed geoengineering techniques for solar radiation management and carbon dioxide removal being discussed have GLOBAL IMPLICATIONS and are generally discussed in a GLOBAL CONTEXT, Rugani said.

    “The study may discuss what is known about regional effects from various proposed techniques, but that will depend what peer-reviewed literature is available on those effects,” she said.

    The project is supported by the Academy, the U.S. intelligence community, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and NASA.

    Changing the Weather

    Attempts to change the weather have taken on various forms for about 70 years.

    Agencies have used cloud seeding to bring rain and snow to parched areas of the western United States. The U.S. government tried to research and modify hurricanes from the early 1960s to the mid-80s, an effort that was unsuccessful.

    Indonesia used cloud seeding in June to help douse forest fires. The Chinese government used its weather modification branch to work on a rain-free Beijing Olympics in 2008.

    So what’s next for weather modification?

    “In its report, the committee may briefly discuss weather modification as a historical example and draw on ‘lessons learned,'” Rugani said.

    Weather modification is the process of modifying the weather to enhance rainfall and/or suppress hail with the use of glaciogenic (silver iodide) and/or hygroscopic (calcium chloride) material, Project Meteorologist Jonathan Jennings of the West Texas Weather Modification Association said.

    Aircraft or ground base generators are used to deliver the materials into the clouds, he said.

    “In Texas, our operations are conducted by seeding at the base of a convective thunderstorm with an aircraft. Our pilots and meteorologists (on the ground) work together via radio contact to identify target clouds and areas of inflow,” Jennings said.

    “We rely on the inflow to transport our material into the areas of the cloud that the material is expected to impact. The meteorologists are licensed by the state of Texas to perform these operations. The main tools used are satellite imagery and radar via a program called TITAN (Thunderstorm Identification, Tracking, Analysis and Nowcasting) supported by the National Center for Atmospheric Research.”

    Safeguards are in place to curtail or stop cloud-seeding programs on predetermined criteria.

    “For example, on our program in North Dakota we do not seed storms that are producing a funnel cloud or tornado, and we also suspend operations during flash flooding situations. Winter programs generally have snowpack criteria by which seeding may be suspended, based on the percentage of normal precipitation and how far along they are in the snow season,” said Darin Langerud, director of the North Dakota Atmospheric Resource Board, who is part of the North American Weather Modification Council.

    Cloud seeding produces no significant environmental effacers but does enhance precipitation by 5 to 15 percent and can reduce crop-hail damage by 40 to 45 percent, Langerud said.

    “The economic benefits of increasing precipitation and reducing hail damage are too numerous to list, but in general, the benefits of extra water in the form of rain and snow and reduced crop-hail damage produced from cloud seeding far outweigh the costs,” he said. “Water produced from cloud seeding can cost as little as a few dollars per acre-foot. Desalination, for example, produces an acre-foot of water for roughly between $500 to $2,000 per acre-foot.”

    Besides the United States, forty-two other nations have weather modification programs, according to a report released in July by the EXPERT Team on Weather Modification Research of the World Meteorological Organization.

    WEATHER WARFARE IS BANNED UNDER A 1980 TREATY TO WHICH THE U.S. IS A SIGNATORY, “BUT” the U.S. intelligence community definitely has an interest in such technologies, said John E. Pike, director of GlobalSecurity.org, a security think tank in Alexandria, Va.

    “Because global warming may impact the security of other countries and CREATE PROBLEMS FOR THE U.S. GOVERNMENT,” Pike said. One national security benefit would be to prevent state failure in Africa, particularly in a nation such as Somalia, which has suffered through famine and a long-term civil war.

    It also would be perfectly ethical for the U.S. government to use weather modification to save lives and money, Pile said.

    “Many a true word is spoken in jest” and “Some truths, too painful or too likely to provoke, can be spoken only when the listener has been disarmed by laughter”

    BALANCE BY GOD

    Once upon a time, God was missing for six days.

    Eventually, Michael, the Archangel, found him, resting on the seventh day. He
    inquired of God. “Where have you been?”

    God sighed a deep sigh of satisfaction, and proudly pointed downwards
    through the clouds, “Look, Michael. Look what I’ve made.”

    Archangel Michael looked puzzled, and said, “What is it?”

    “It’s a planet,” replied God, “and I’ve put Life on it. I’m going to call it
    Earth and it’s going to be a great place of balance.”

    “Balance?” inquired Michael, still confused. God explained, pointing to
    different parts of earth. “For example, northern Europe will be a place of great
    opportunity and wealth, while southern Europe is going to be poor. Over there
    I’ve placed a continent of white people, and over there is a continent of black
    people.” “Balance in all things,” God continued pointing to different countries.

    “This one will be extremely hot, while this one will be very cold and covered in ice.”

    The Archangel, impressed by God’s work, then pointed to a land mass and
    said, “What’s that one?”

    Ah,” said God “That’s Washington State, the most glorious place on earth.
    There are beautiful streams, hills, and forests. The people from Washington
    State are going to be handsome, modest, intelligent and humorous, and they are
    going to be found traveling the world. They will be extremely sociable,
    hardworking, high achieving, and they will be known throughout the
    world as diplomats, and carriers of peace.”

    Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then proclaimed, “What about
    balance, God? You said there would be balance.”

    God smiled, “There is another Washington….. wait til you see the idiots I put there.”

    A Recommended National Program In WEATHER MODIFICATION

    A Report to the Interdepartmental Committee for Atmospheric Sciences

    by Homer E. Newell

    Associate Administrator for Space Science and Application

    National Aeronautics and Space Administration Washington, D.C.

    Interdepartmental Committee for Atmospheric Sciences

    The gradually accumulating evidence of positive results from efforts at

    weather modification led the Committee on Atmospheric Sciences of the

    National Academy of Sciences, in November 1963, to appoint a Panel

    on Weather and Climate Modification “to undertake a deliberate and

    thoughtful review of the present status and activities in this field.

    On June 16, 1964, the Director of the National Science Foundation announced the

     appointment of a Special Commission on Weather Modification. in its review of the

    field, the Commission activated seven subgroups to study the physical, biological, statistical,

    social, international, legal and legislative, and administration and funding aspects of

    weather and climate modification.

    This is the comment that prefaced the above.

    Dane Wigington
    geoengineeringwatch.org

    The document contained below is very damning and revealing, I located it in the NASA archives in late October of 2012. It should be a stark wake up call for any that still deny the existence of massive covert weather modification programs which are coordinated by various governments around the world.

    This file report outlines in great detail the existence of expanding US weather modification programs as far back as 1956, a full decade earlier than the date of the document in question. A “special commission” is outlined in this document to coordinate the multiple governmental agencies involved with US weather modification programs as well as independent contractors and universities which the report also mentions. It covers the “management” of international impacts, legal and social ramifications, species disruptions, biological consequences, etc.

    A rapidly increasing mountain of data makes ever more clear that almost none of us alive today have known completely natural weather. That massive covert government programs have been playing “God” with the biosphere for well over 60 years, perhaps even longer. In recent years the scope and scale of these devastating weather modification programs has been ramped up so much that the entire climate system and biosphere is now hanging in the balance.

    The lethal nature of the ongoing “geoengineering” programs can not be overstated. Life on our planet is in freefall for many reasons, but mathematically speaking climate engineering is the greatest assault of all against life on Earth.

    Documents like the one linked below need to be shown to those that continue to deny the ongoing climate engineering reality. With each passing day radical fluctuations in weather continue to accelerate as a direct result of the ongoing geoengineering insanity. Geoengineering must be brought into the light of day and to a halt. Those responsible for the climate engineering programs should be seen criminals that have participated in ecocide and genocide. The corporate media and the “meteorologists” that serve them must also be exposed FOR  THEIR PART IN HIDING THE AEROSOL SPRAYING ASSAULT from public veiw. Each and every one of us are needed to assist in the most critical effort to reach critical mass of awareness, lets make every day count in this battle.

     Very wavy jet-stream patterns have been occurring more often since the 1990s, Francis says, and are now affecting weather around the northern hemisphere. This mid-February cold snap, for example, that has left millions of people waking up to below-zero and single-digit temperatures, might not be as deep as some southward dips, called troughs, in the jet stream. But the overall pattern has been around for weeks, and is also responsible for Boston’s record snowfall this winter and the worsening drought in western states.

    A New Move to Bring the Grizzly Bear Back to California

    June 20, 2014 By Todd Woody

    Now an environmental group wants to restore America’s top predator to its namesake state by reintroducing the bear to California as well as to Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah. The grizzly is listed as a threatened species under the United States Endangered Species Act, and in a petition filed with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on Wednesday, the Center for Biological Diversity argued that to ensure the bear’s survival the agency should reintroduce it throughout its historic territory.

    A PUBLIC COMMENT on this HORRIBILIS  GRIZZLY RESTORATION

     Ross Lake and Lake Chelan Recreation areas for endangered grizzly bears. It sounds to me like HUMANS are going to be the endangered species if they are reintroduced into recreation areas.

    ARE THESE GUYS NUTS?

    What I would like to know is where they got these bears that they intend to reintroduce here. If they are trouble makers elsewhere, they will be trouble here.

    “This is an important phase in the process of assessing environmental impacts,” said NPS Pacific West Regional Director Chris Lehnertz. “Public comment at this stage is critical to ensure that all issues are considered.”

    The FWS listed the grizzly bear as a threatened species in the lower 48 United States in 1975. The species was listed as endangered by the state of Washington in 1980.
    “The Grizzly Bear Recovery Plan calls on us to fully consider the restoration of the grizzly bear in the North Cascades, and this process will ensure we solicit the public for their input before putting any plan into action,” said FWS Pacific Regional Director Robyn Thorson. “We will continue to work with our partners to make this an open and transparent process.”
    The North Cascades ecosystem encompasses 9,800 square miles in the United States and another 3,800 square miles in British Columbia, Canada.  The United States portion of the ecosystem includes North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake National Recreation Area, Lake Chelan National Recreation Area, Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest, and Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest.
    A few grizzly bears have recently been sighted in the Canadian part of the ecosystem, but no grizzly bears have been sighted in the United States portion for several years.

    LIST OF FATAL BEAR ATTACKS IN NORTH AMERICA

    Fatal bear attacks in North America have occurred in a variety of settings. There have been several in the bears’ wilderness habitats involving hikers, hunters, and campers. Brown bear incidents have occurred in their native range spanning Alaska, Northern and Western Canada, and portions of the Rocky Mountains in the United States. The locations of black bear wilderness fatal attacks reflect their wider range: all Canadian Provinces except the Atlantic Provinces and several major mountainous areas in the United States.

    Flooding is a Dam Shame

    Why has Congress spent ALL of it’s time FOR THE LAST 50 YEARS? TAKING AND USING taxpayer dollars? to legislate and fund the NGO’s “Sue and Settle” global agenda on the environment?, “WILDING?” the United States of America, to protect scenic rivers and views?, and to SAVE AND PROTECT endangered species,TAKING PUBLIC AND PRIVATE NATURAL RESOURCE LAND TO PROVIDE Critical Habitat for endangered species,created manipulated balding, breeding, seeding and trans location of endangered plants and animals?

    IN A GOVERNMENT OF THE PEOPLE? FOR THE PEOPLE? BY THE PEOPLE?

    WHO IS PROTECTING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE?

    Why has congress FAILED TO PROTECT THE AMERICAN “PEOPLE” FROM the LOSS OF HUMAN LIFE AND PROPERTY DESTRUCTION, AKA “HABITAT FOR HUMANITY” FROM THE DAMN MISERY OF PROVEN, CONTROLLABLE DAM FLOODING?

    The increase on FEMA flood insurance is a DAM shame on Congress.

    Flooding is a Dam Shame
    Posted on June 28, 2013 7:31 am by Pearl Rains Hewett Comment

    FLOODING IS A DAM SHAME

    DROUGHT IS A DAM SHAME

    CHINA WAS SO DAM SMART THAT THEY BUILT THE BIGGEST DAM IN THE WORLD.

    HE WHO CONTROLS THE WATER CONTROLS THE WORLD?

    IN THE USA THE GOVERNMENT WAS AND IS SO DAM STUPID THEY DECIDED THAT HYDRO ELECTRIC POWER WAS NOT DAM CLEAN, DAM CHEAP, DAM RENEWABLE DAM ENERGY, NOT DAM FLOOD CONTROL AND NOT DAM DROUGHT AND DAM PROPERTY LOSS PREVENTION.

    THE DAM CHINESE GOVERNMENT IS SO DAM SMART THEY WORK IN THE BEST INTEREST OF THE DAM PEOPLE.

    THE CHINESE DAM PREVENTS THE DAM LOSS OF LIFE, BILLIONS OF DAM DOLLARS IN PROPERTY DAMAGE, PROVIDES DAM CHEAP, DAM CLEAN, DAM RENEWABLE, DAM ENERGY AND HELPS KEEP THEIR DAM ECONOMY STRONG.

    THE CHINESE DAM CONTROLS THE DAM WATER RELEASES THE DAM WATER TO ELIMINATE THE DAM DROUGHTS

    WHAT PART OF THIS DAM CHINESE POLICY DOES THE DAM US GOVERNMENT NOT UNDERSTAND?

    THE US GOVERNMENT IS SO DAM DUMB THEY WORK FOR THE DAM LOBBYIST AND THE DAM SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS. SAVE THE DAM SALMON AT WHAT COST?

    THE BEST DAM INTEREST OF THE DAM PEOPLE IN THE USA BE DAMMED

    AS DICTATED BY THE DAM US GOVERNMENT

    THE DAM PEOPLE IN THE DAM USA ARE FLOODED AND CLEANING UP THE DAM WATER DAMAGE FOR SIX DAM MONTHS OF THE YEAR.

    THE DAM PEOPLE IN THE USA SUFFER THE DAM DROUGHT FOR THE OTHER SIX DAM MONTHS OF THE YEAR

    THE CHINESE DAM CONCEPT IS TO BUILD AND KEEP DAMS TO PROVIDE CLEAN RENEWABLE ELECTRIC POWER, CONTROL THE DAM WATER AND PREVENT THE DAM FLOODING AND RELEASE THE DAM WATER TO PREVENT DROUGHT

    THE USA DAM POLICY CREATES LOSS OF DAM LIFE, DAM MISERY AND DAM SUFFERING FOR MILLIONS OF DAM AMERICANS EVERY DAM YEAR.
