This year my garden went to 'seed' in June. I quickly realized that mine was not the only garden to suffer from overheating and drought. No wonder the Arctic is melting, I thought. When I looked to the sky for answers I saw only trails of white plumes that seemed to make the sky overcast. A quick search on Scientific American told me why:
From ETC Group: "GeoPiracy is the intentional, large-scale technological manipulation of the Earth’s systems, often discussed as a techno-fix for combating climate change.
Geoengineering can refer to a wide range of techniques, including: blasting sulphate particles into the stratosphere or 'whitening' clouds to reflect the sun’s rays; dumping iron particles in the oceans to nurture CO2 -absorbing plankton; firing silver iodide into clouds to produce rain or genetically engineering crops so their foliage can better reflect sunlight."
Not only are these manipulations seriously affecting our health perhaps contributing to Vitamin D depletion and therefore breast cancer, Alzheimers and respiratory problems but they seem to be 'conveniently' (for carbon taxing politicians) 'warming' the Arctic.
