The preeminent organ of propaganda, FoxNews neglects to mention that experimentation with the weather has been going on in the U.S. since the 1960’s at least and that geoengineering appears to be occurring virtually worldwide already. In regard to the claim the CIA is interested in looking at limiting the amount of sunlight reaching earth, the BBC reported several years ago that the amount of sunlight reaching earth has been reduced by about 20%.
FoxNews, July 23, 2013.
The CIA is funding a study examining various ways mankind can geo-engineer the planet — blocking or limiting the sunlight that reaches the Earth, stripping carbon dioxide from the skies, seeding the clouds and so on.
The project, a panel called “Geoengineering Climate: Technical Evaluation and Discussion of Impacts,” is backed by the National Academy of Sciences, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), NASA — and the U.S. intelligence community.
That’s spy-talk for the CIA, William Kearney, a spokesman for NAS, told Mother Jones.
So why would the trenchcoat troops meet with the eggheads?
“It’s natural that on a subject like climate change the Agency would work with scientists to better understand the phenomenon and its implications on national security,” Edward Price, a spokesman for the CIA, told Mother Jones. He refused to confirm the agency’s role in the study.
