Re: Geo-engineering aerosol spraying
Dear Congressman Gordon and Committee:
This letter is a statement of your constituents and other citizens throughout the
From the ground, these jet aerosol operations resemble proposed geo-engineering programs which are planned to be introduced under “Solar Radiation Management” [i] programs. The sprays released from the jets appear to expand into man-made clouds which diffuse until the sky is blanketed. Ultimately, a complete “white-out” of the sky results. The unnatural, xenobiotic “cloud”, then gradually moves to ground level, where humans, animals and plants absorb its harmful contents.
This geo-engineering spraying, called “chemtrails” [ii] by some, but falling under what is to be announced this month by your Committee as “Global Geo-engineering Governance”, is illegal under international law as well as under the law of the land in the
According to the 5th article of the Bill of Rights, amending the Constitution for the
Under US Title 50, Chapter 32, § 1520 (a) “Prohibited activities”, the Secretary of Defense (and his agents), “may not conduct (directly or by contract) – (1) any test or experiment involving the use of a chemical agent or biological agent on a civilian population; or (2) any other testing of a chemical agent or biological agent on human subjects.” Since geo-engineering programs, as discussed at a recent scientific conference on the topic in San Diego[iii] (3), are represented by their developer-promoters as involving experimentation and testing upon civilian populations, those being carried out on the US and other populations are in violation of Title 50, Chapter 32, § 1520.
Title 50, Chapter 32 § 1520 (c) provides an exception to the above, where informed consent has been obtained in advance from each individual test subject. However, whereas there exists no informed consent from Americans generally or individually to be exposed to geo-engineering-related releases – indeed, signatories to this letter, and those they represent in their respective organizations, hereby declare they do not consent to be exposed to such aerosol spraying – the current releasing of aerosols over the US and other populations is illegal and must be halted at once.
Geo-engineers are proposing injecting 10 to 20 Million tons of aluminum and barium into the atmosphere for the stated goal of cooling the planet. Tests from around the world reveal massive amounts of aluminum and barium in the rain, snow and soil.[v] These tests suggest that these programs are not only a threat to human health and ecology, but have also been on-going for several years. In various communities across the
Every member of Congress and the federal government inhales these substances, just like the rest of us. Geo-engineering deliberately distributes other toxic chemicals to the atmosphere as well, e.g., sulfur, which produces increasing acid rains that harm our oceans, soils, crops, vegetation, and human and animal health. Such geo-engineering programs reduce the amount of sunlight reaching the Earth; crop production is reduced due to decreased photosynthesis. All humans and animals suffer the health consequences from inhalation of Barium, Aluminum particulates. There has been a significant increase in illnesses related to these chemicals, which are classified as Toxins by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR).[vii], [viii]
We declare we do not consent to any Global Geo-engineering Governance, nor to be exposed by any means to geo-engineering-related hazardous substances, regardless of the delivery mechanism, and urge you immediately to modify your stance on such Governance.
We additionally demand a set of hearings – minimally three – to include expert testimony of opponents of geo-engineering, in advance of and preparation for your final report, due in September 2010. To date, any such hearings have excluded opponents, despite the fact that every person, having already been and about to be further exposed to harmful atmospheric releases, has a vital interest in this matter.
Congressman Dennis Kucinich had tried some years ago to put a stop to these hazardous releases, referring in the bill to some geo-engineering programs as “chemtrails”. However, he was not adequately supported by other members of Congress. That state of affairs must now change at once; for geo-engineering, which is fully intended to alter the bio-system in very significant ways, vies with the Gulf oil rig disaster in terms of its likely permanent, global damages.
As a representative of the people of the sovereign states comprising the
