“Earthmasters”- new book on geo-engineering

book-earthmastersCLIVE HAMILTON: – One thing I noticed while doing this research and looking at scientists involved was the density of the linkages with the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. So I investigated further and thought it’s really quite astonishing the extent to which many, if not most, prominent scientific researchers in geoengineering in the U.S. worked at Livermore or have close links with people there now or those who used to work there.

Then when I read Hugh Gusterson’s book on Livermore and it’s role in the cold war and nuclear weapons development, I started to think much more carefully about the type of mindset that is especially drawn to geoengineering as a technological response to global warming. I think it’s quite alarming in its implications. 

Climate Change’s Silver Bullet? Our Interview With One Of The World’s Top Geoengineering Scholars BY ARI PHILLIPS ON SEPTEMBER 6, 2013 MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA — SINCE COMING TO AUSTRALIA ALMOST TWO MONTHS AGO I’VE HEARD ABOUT CLIVE HAMILTON IN THE PROCESS OF REPORTING JUST ABOUT EVERY STORY I’VE DONE. THEN I PICKED UP HIS NEW BOOK EARTHMASTERS: THE DAWN OF THE AGE OF CLIMATE ENGINEERING AND NOW I SEE WHAT ALL THE FUSS IS ABOUT.

    I take it that you don’t agree with the two major premises in Hamilton’s book — the first being that anthropogenic climate change is happening (and is a major problem), and the second being that there are no active geoengineeering programmes taking pace at present?

    • That is right. One thing I find ironic about the geoengineers activities in relation to “man-made global warming,” is that advanced technology is being used – that is aircraft without wings are being used to spray aerosols. This presumably does not use “fossil fuels.” This technology is being concealed from the public. Why? If there is really a problem with man-made global warming due to fossil fuel use, why not make this technology available to the public at large?

    Well if the technology was openly discussed then we would be able to actively debate it’s use and debate what is the content of it. Be it nano sized particles of proven harmful elements or the even more horrifying compositions that may be falling down on us.

    • Free energy technology – as in the aircraft without wings, which presumably does not use “fossil fuel”, has been suppressed for decades. There are people in Whangarei who can run cars on water, which makes one wonder why aren’t we all being encouraged to convert to these type of vehicles now, if man-made global warming is such a great problem?
      This documentary shows how free energy technology has been concealed from the public:
