Geoengineering the Planet

Geoengineers are proposing large scale global projects to reduce solar radiation. They want to force the oceans into absorbing more CO2 through “fertilization”, and they work on carbon sequestration and weather modification.

While most climate scientist left the Copenhagen Summit feeling gloomy about the lack of action to halt climate change, a small group felt emboldened. They are the geo-engineers who are proposing large scale global projects to reduce solar radiation by spreading sulphate aerosols into the atmosphere, placing sunshades into space or by whitening the clouds. They also want to force the oceans into absorbing more of the excess CO2 through “fertilization” by spreading urea, iron or phosphorous. And they work on carbon sequestration and weather modification. What seemed until recently a mad science fiction project is now gaining acceptance by corporations, politicians, the US Department of Energy, climate change deniers and funders.

Among the institutions where geoengineering research is being done are: Lawrence Livermore National Lab, Stanford University, the Russian Academy of Sciences, the German Max Planck Institute, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Universities of Manchester, Bristol and Edinburgh, UK – as well as labs and corporations in Canada, India, China, Australia and many other places.

The nonprofit civil society organization, the ETCGroup, has probably followed the issue of geoengineering more closely and over the longest period of time. At least that is the opinion of the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation. They commission the ETCGroup to write a pamphlet called “Retooling the Planet?” with an overview over and detailed critique of geoengineering. It came out in the Fall of 2009, and is freely available on their website ETCGroup.org. The ETC group has fundamental objections to geoengineering since it treats only the symptoms, not the causes of climate change and can be used as an excuse for delaying the implementation of CO2 reductions. But they also wanted to issue a warning that large scale open field, real world experiments in ocean fertilization and solar radiation management may be about to begin and need to come under scrutiny.

The ETCGroup reports that indigenous peoples, civil society organizations and women’s group have already expressed their opposition to geoengineeering schemes. Most of these organization are in the global South and they need to hear from the opposition in the industrialized countries, especially in the US and the UK. The goals are to bring about a ban on any real-world experimentation in geoengineering, to expose the overt and covert interests of the players, and to demand accountability from governments, corporations and scientists who are actively promoting these technologies. From A TUC Radio Presentation

The Anti-war Progressive Teachin broaches upon some of the most highly charged subjects of our day—War & Peace, national healthcare, womens rights, human rights, civil rights, torture, vets against the war, freedom, democracy, protest, demonstrations, etc. We scour the world to find and gather debates and presentations that are extremely informative and educational. Related subjects are also discussed. It provides key information for the uninitiated and the initiated alike.

9/11: Explosive Evidence -- Experts Speak Out
by Architects & Engineers for 911 Truth

The 43 technical experts interviewed in Experts Speak Out lay out the case for controlled demolition from their individual areas of expertise in hi-rise architecture, structural engineering, metallurgy, chemistry, physics, and controlled demolition. The seeming implausibility of the implications of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers being demolished with explosives is also handled quite skillfully in the film, as eight experts in psychology discuss the difficulties many people have in confronting the myth-shattering reality. This is a newly released DVD.

Reviews: Excellent Item for Travel, Backpacking, Camping, Etc.

This radio is a great little investment. It does exactly everything it states it should. On a 60 second crank I got hours of play. I ran the radio completely dead by leaving the light on and the radio playing at half column. I let the radio play like this with the light on for at least an hour before it went dead. I then put it out in the sun and let it charge with the solar charger for about four hours and then turned the radio on and let it play for only about an hour and then just didn't want to complete the experiment. I am very pleased with this radio. 60 seconds of cranking for hours of play is very reasonable. Letting it charge out in the sun and getting hours of play is very reasonable. I have other brands like this in the past that you would crank for 5 to 10 and get maybe 10 minutes of play.

The USB charge does work, but know that it will not charge an iPhone 3Gs. This is more a problem/restriction of the iPhone 3Gs (a widely discussed complaint across the Internet for many-many generic charging devices) and is not because of the radio. Charging my old Samsung phone was not a problem.

Capitalism: A Love StoryCapitalism: A Love Story. On the 20-year anniversary of his groundbreaking masterpiece "Roger & Me," Michael Moore's "Capitalism: A Love Story" comes home to the issue he's been examining throughout his career: the disastrous impact of corporate dominance on the everyday lives of Americans. But this time the culprit is much bigger than General Motors, and the crime scene is far wider than Flint, Michigan.
