Update from researcher, Malcolm Scott, 28 August, 2018.
In July 2018, the Office of the Ombudsman informed Malcolm Scott that the Minister for the Environment had failed to comply with the Official Information request, and upheld his complaint. The Ministry for the Environment was therefore requested to release whatever correspondence it held to him. The summary below, released on the 22nd of August, which may not be complete, indicates that the Ministry has continued to receive regular inquiries from the public about chemtrails, aerosol spraying and geoengineering. These inquiries clearly indicate that the public are looking to the Ministry for accountability and an explanation (as previous inquiries have since at least 2010). However, the Ministry has failed to take any steps toward developing a policy or regulatory framework for the investigation, monitoring or regulation of aerosol geoengineering.
The public should continue to correspond with the Ministry – every letter or e-mail forms a part of the public record which may, in the future, provide a basis for Parliamentary or legal action.
