1972: The US has been secretly seeding clouds over North Vietnam, Laos & South Vietnam to increase & control the rainfall for military purposes.

#Geoengineering seeks to combat climate change by removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere or by increasing the reflectivity of the earth – with clouds or even space dust – to reduce the sun’s warmth.

goal was to extend the monsoon season & flood the Ho Chi Minh Trail, the system of supply routes used by enemy fighters in Vietnam. Americans hoped to cause landslides, wash out river crossings, & generally disrupt the movement of North Vietnamese tpaleofuture.gizmodo.com/the-secret-wea…5fI50f3w
[2013] One proposed #geoengineering method the study will look at is solar radiation management—a fancy term for pumping particles into the stratosphere to reflect incoming sunlight away from the planet #chemtrails citylab.com/equity/2013/07…
Though it cycled through several names in its history, #OperationPopeye stuck. Its stated objective—to ensure Americans won the Vietnam War—was never realized, but the revelation that the US gvmt played God with weather-altering warfare changed history popsci.com/operation-pope…
[1975] US & the Soviet Union called on the 20‐nation Disarmament Conference to complete this year the draft of an international convention to outlaw all attempts to manipulate the weather or modify the environment for military of other hostile purposnytimes.com/1976/02/18/arc…Ph8E

In 1946, 3 G.E. scientists found that seeding clouds with dry ice or silver iodide could affect precipitation. The Pentagon soon had hopes of weaponizing the sky.


[2015] Professor Alan Robock, from Rutgers University in New Jersey, said: ‘Consultants working for the CIA rang and said we’d like to know if someone is controlling the world’s climate would we know about it? dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2…
The mission is to release a cloud of tiny particles into the atmosphere. The cloud creates a barrier that reflects sunlight back into space, keeping it from being absorbed on Earth, where it would further warm the planet. #sundimming #chemtrails

Using available evidence, we describe the potential direct occupational & public health impacts of exposures to aerosols likely to be used for SRM, incl environmental sulfates, black carbon, metallic aluminum, & aluminum oxide aeroncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P…rDt7BLEs
Deeper analysis of the risks had been proposed by Switzerland & 12 other countries as a 1st step towards stronger oversight of potentially world-altering experiments that would have implications for food supply, biodiversity, global inequality & setheguardian.com/environment/20…7WP2jqDC
Scientists suggest there is high agreement that INJECTION OF CHEMICALS into the stratosphere could help limit global warming. However, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Russia & US have refused to endorse its report.
To stave off a crisis, China & the US jointly propose an audacious scheme: They will inject sulfate aerosols into the high atmosphere to dim the sun’s rays, as happens naturally after a huge volcanic eruption

The Risks, Rewards & Possible Ramifications of Geoengineering Earth’s Climate.

Injecting aerosols into the stratosphere could help cool the planet, but scientists have yet to study exactly how such solar geoengineering would worsmithsonianmag.com/science-nature…kW4S
Proposals to combat climate change by reflecting the sun’s rays back into space would cause widespread crop failure, cancelling out any benefits to farming from the reduction in warming, according to new research.
