Talking Monkeys In Space: Bill Gates Sponsors ‘GeoEngineering’ a/k/a ‘Chemtrails’ To Combat ‘Climate Change’

talkingmonkeysinspace:

John Vidal reports in the Guardian that Bill Gates and other wealthy individuals have funded a series of reports into the future use of technologies to geoengineer the climate:

A small group of leading climate scientists, financially supported by billionaires including Bill Gates, are lobbying governments and international bodies to back experiments into manipulating the climate on a global scale to avoid catastrophic climate change.

The scientists, who advocate geoengineering methods such as spraying millions of tonnes of reflective particles of sulphur dioxide 30 miles above earth, argue that a “plan B” for climate change will be needed if the UN and politicians cannot agree to making the necessary cuts in greenhouse gases, and say the US government and others should pay for a major programme of international research.

Solar geoengineering techniques are highly controversial: while some climate scientists believe they may prove a quick and relatively cheap way to slow global warming, others fear that when conducted in the upper atmosphere, they could irrevocably alter rainfall patterns and interfere with the earth’s climate.

Geoengineering is opposed by many environmentalists, who say the technology could undermine efforts to reduce emissions, and by developing countries who fear it could be used as a weapon or by rich countries to their advantage. In 2010, the UN Convention on Biological Diversity declared a moratorium on experiments in the sea and space, except for small-scale scientific studies.

Concern is now growing that the small but influential group of scientists, and their backers, may have a disproportionate effect on major decisions about geoengineering research and policy.

So, on th’ Meta-Level, I feel & think that we heed to phase out money. The arbitrary assignation of value to such an abstract meme as money, creates a pseudo-meritocracy in which those that are willing to suffer, sacrifice their values, stab backs, cut throats & destroy the cultures & natural environments of wherever has resources they want. Whilst limiting our options in obtaining what we need to live, & convincing us all that we need or want things, without considering where those things come from, or at what cost to whom. Big Biz is the arbiter of all of these things. It must end. But how? Tis heavy on my mind & figures large in my plans. <3 Discuss?
