Water is rapidly becoming the new oil:
On Aug. 16, the Crystal Serenity set out from Seward, Alaska, carrying 1,700 passengers and crew, and escorted by a comparatively minuscule, 1,800-ton icebreaker. She circled west and north around the Alaska Peninsula and through the Bering Strait before heading east into the maze of straits and sounds that constitute the Northwest Passage. For centuries, explorers tried to establish a sea route here between Europe and Asia. Many met with ruin. A few stranded sailors famously ate their boots—and each other. When the Crystal Serenity emerged free and clear of the maze on Sept. 5, there were no accounts of scurvy or cannibalism, only tales of bingeing on themed buffets and grumbles from shutterbugs about the Arctic’s monotonous landscape.
Operated by Crystal Cruises, the Serenity became on that day the first passenger liner to successfully ply the Northwest Passage. As climate change melts Arctic sea ice twice as fast as models predicted, more and larger ships have made their way along these fatal shores. In 2013, the Nordic Orion was the first bulk cargo carrier to transit the Passage, hauling a load of coal.
Rates on the Serenity started at around $22,000 per person. For that, passengers were anointed, by Slate, “the world’s worst people”—for venturing into a vulnerable ecosystem in a diesel-burning, 69,000-ton behemoth. Canada’s National Post described the cruise as an “invasion” of indigenous communities. Britain’s Telegraph hinted at Titanic hubris, asking, Is this “the world’s most dangerous cruise”?
As for the Arctic villages the Serenity visited, they were, depending on whom you ask, either overwhelmed or overjoyed by the ship’s hordes of curious, wealthy strangers. The communities staged dances, hawked arts and crafts, and expressed hope that the Crystal Serenity reaches New York safely on Sept. 16. Assuming it does, Crystal Cruises plans to offer the route again next year, departing Anchorage on Aug. 15. Edie Rodriguez, the company’s chief executive officer, says that a few passengers have already rebooked.
I’m going to make an educated personal observation here: The ARCTIC is melting. The ANTARCTIC is growing in ice mass.
The massive multi disciplinary Operation SOCRATES has stated similar findings, with the aim being to find out why the Southern hemisphere seems largely unaffected by “Global Warming/Climate Change” while the Northern Hemisphere is affected dramatically.
I would suggest that there’s more to the picture than meets the eye, and readers sufficiently interested and motivated should do some research. Beware of disinformation though. Think critically and logically! ( And don’t forget the Geoengineering agenda.)
You can’t squeeze blood from a stone, but wringing water from the desert sky is now possible, thanks to a new spongelike device that uses sunlight to suck water vapor from air, even in low humidity. The device can produce nearly 3 liters of water per day for every kilogram of spongelike absorber it contains, and researchers say future versions will be even better. That means homes in the driest parts of the world could soon have a solar-powered appliance capable of delivering all the water they need, offering relief to billions of people.
There are an estimated 13 trillion liters of water floating in the atmosphere at any one time, equivalent to 10% of all of the freshwater in our planet’s lakes and rivers. Over the years, researchers have developed ways to grab a few trickles, such as using fine nets to wick water from fog banks, or power-hungry dehumidifiers to condense it out of the air. But both approaches require either very humid air or far too much electricity to be broadly useful.
To find an all-purpose solution, researchers led by Omar Yaghi, a chemist at the University of California, Berkeley, turned to a family of crystalline powders called metal organic frameworks, or MOFs. Yaghi developed the first MOFs—porous crystals that form continuous 3D networks—more than 20 years ago. The networks assemble in a Tinkertoy-like fashion from metal atoms that act as the hubs and sticklike organic compounds that link the hubs together. By choosing different metals and organics, chemists can dial in the properties of each MOF, controlling what gases bind to them, and how strongly they hold on.

Lyndon Johnson: control the weather, to control the world ! 1962.
US scientists are set to send aerosol injections 20km up into the earth’s stratosphere in the world’s biggest solar geoengineering programme to date, to study the potential of a future tech-fix for global warming.
The $20m (£16m) Harvard University project will launch within weeks and aims to establish whether the technology can safely simulate the atmospheric cooling effects of a volcanic eruption, if a last ditch bid to halt climate change is one day needed.
Scientists hope to complete two small-scale dispersals of first water and then calcium carbonate particles by 2022. Future tests could involve seeding the sky with aluminium oxide – or even diamonds.
“This is not the first or the only university study,” said Gernot Wagner, the project’s co-founder, “but it is most certainly the largest, and the most comprehensive.”
Janos Pasztor, Ban Ki-moon’s assistant climate chief at the UN who now leads a geoengineering governance initiative, said that the Harvard scientists would only disperse minimal amounts of compounds in their tests, under strict university controls.
“The real issue here is something much more challenging,” he said “What does moving experimentation from the lab into the atmosphere mean for the overall path towards eventual deployment?”
Geoengineering advocates stress that any attempt at a solar tech fix is years away and should be viewed as a compliment to – not a substitute for – aggressive emissions reductions action.
But the Harvard team, in a promotional video for the project, suggest a redirection of one percent of current climate mitigation funds to geoengineering research, and argue that the planet could be covered with a solar shield for as little as $10bn a year.
Some senior UN climate scientists view such developments with alarm, fearing a cash drain from proven mitigation technologies such as wind and solar energy, to ones carrying the potential for unintended disasters.
Kevin Trenberth, a lead author for the UN’s intergovernmental panel on climate change, said that despair at sluggish climate action, and the rise of Donald Trump were feeding the current tech trend.
“But solar geoengineering is not the answer,” he said. “Cutting incoming solar radiation affects the weather and hydrological cycle. It promotes drought. It destabilizes things and could cause wars. The side effects are many and our models are just not good enough to predict the outcomes”
Natural alterations to the earth’s radiation balance can be short-lasting, but terrifying. A 1991 Mount Pinatubo eruption lowered global temperatures by 0.5C, while the Mount Tambora eruption in 1815 triggered Europe’s ‘year without a summer’, bringing crop failure, famine and disease.
A Met Office study in 2013 said that the dispersal of fine particles in the stratosphere could precipitate a calamitous drought across North Africa.
Frank Keutsch, the Harvard atmospheric sciences professor leading the experiment, said that the deployment of a solar geoengineering system was “a terrifying prospect” that he hoped would never have to be considered. “At the same time, we should never choose ignorance over knowledge in a situation like this,” he said.
“If you put heat into the stratosphere, it may change how much water gets transported from the troposphere to the stratosphere, and the question is how much are you [creating] a domino effect with all kinds of consequences? What we can do to quantify this is to start with lab studies and try to understand the relevant properties of these aerosols.”
Stratospheric controlled perturbation experiments (SCoPEX) are seen as “critical” to this process and the first is planned to spray water molecules into the stratosphere to create a 1km long and 100m wide icy plume, which can be studied by a manoeuvrable flight balloon.
If lab tests are positive, the experiment would then be replicated with a limestone compound which the researchers believe will neither absorb solar or terrestrial radiation, nor deplete the ozone layer.
Bill Gates and other foundations are substantially funding the project, and aerospace companies are thought to be taking a business interest in the technology’s potential.
The programmme’s launch will follow a major conference involving more than 100 scientists, which begins in Washington DC today.
Solar geoengineering’s journey from the fringes of climate science to its mainstream will be sealed at a prestigious Gordon research conference in July, featuring senior figures from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and Oxford University.
Pasztor says that most scientific observers now see the window to a 1.5C warmed world as “practically gone” and notes that atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations will continue rising for many decades after the planet has reached a ‘net zero emissions’ point planned for mid-late century.
But critics of solar radiation management approach this as a call to redouble mitigation efforts and guard against the elevation of a questionable Plan B.
“It is appropriate that we spend money on solar geoengineering research,” said Kevin Anderson, the deputy director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research. “But we also have to aim for 2C with climate mitigation and act as though geoengineering doesn’t work, because it probably won’t.”

Skyception: The Deception and Manipulation of ‘We the People’ and our Skies
The Levels of Deception and How Psychological Operations are Used Against Us
When was the last time you looked up at the daytime sky and really examined it for several minutes? Does it seem different to you in some way, but you just are not sure what it is? Increasingly, people from all walks of life are beginning to realize that at times our skies look quite different from the way they were a few decades ago. While just a few years ago these people would have been laughed out of the room if they expressed their views in public, more and more these days this subject is beginning to be taken seriously by the general public…..and even some ‘officials’ as well.
While some call this phenomenon Geoengineering or Climate Engineering, it is more commonly known in the alternative community as ‘Chemtrails’, where persistent vapor trails (supposedly of water vapor) are visible after a plane passes high overhead. There are many theories offered in the alternative media about what is happening, and we will examine nearly all. However, before we can address any of them we must first ask a more basic question: Why is it so difficult to discover the reasons behind what is going on and why is this observable phenomenon occurring at all? This chapter, the first of three, will describe some of the methods used to intentionally prevent us from knowing and understanding the truth.
For Chapters 2 & 3
Plan To Spray The Skies | Spraying Event Announced
Despite all the Climate Change propaganda, it seems certain that Antarctica is growing.
With the opposite pole, the facts are harder to discern. Is the Arctic ice growing also?
Or is it shrinking ?
And why are the elite taking so much interest in Antarctica?
Is the elite exodus to New Zealand, the Gateway to Antarctica tied in with this somehow?
What do all the tales and rumours of pyramids, lost cities, underground bases and aliens amount to ?
Disinformation and distraction?
Disinformation always contains elements of verifiable fact, however, considerable discernment and healthy scepticism is clearly required:
What’s the truth?
Give us your thoughts and opinions!
Celebrities and assorted confection can’t get their lives into even a semblance of reality. Yet they want to soapbox their dysfunctional takes on the socio-economic fabric of the world, domestic politics, and foreign policies. On any of which they have no idea whatsoever.
Madonna, for one, should concentrate on not having to use Autotune software, or Lipsync her concerts. The fans might begin to question. And they criticised Milli Vanilli and The Monkeys.
The current phenomenon of nauseous, political, celebrity brain malfunction, must be connected to a short attention span, the gravitas of fashion, and looking like you know what you’re talking about. And unfortunately for the challenged, bullshit has never baffled brains.
They are neither leaders nor representatives of anyone. Their ‘following’, such as it may be, is not allied to their personal ideological capture, real or pretend.
Wear a little blue ribbon, if you intend to vocalise, to signal that you have no idea. It’s a bit like walking and talking simultaneously. We give our seats to the physically challenged in public transport. We need to be compassionate to those displaying various retardations of the political kind.
The clueless are actually displaying displeasure, because the vast majority of the legitimate American constituency did not approve of a real life White House version of ‘Weekend at Bernie’s’. Or a raving Boadicea.
The smarter ones of The Electoral College knew that there was a massive fraud exercised by The Dems, last November. So much for the non-existent Russian Hack. Legitimate challenges, by The GOP, would have held. And the notion of a Two Party System, as there exists in many other Western nation states; would have collapsed more visibly in America.
They did not appease or compensate. There was no repudiation or abrogation of The Constitution. They acted correctly as The Constitution demands. The GOP won that election in every aspect, despite all the attempted Dem frauds. The Dems destroyed their own party. Lateralised fault attachments have failed. In due course, the noise will abate. It has no substance.
Their articulated disengaging, and what they have done to The Democratic Republic of America, is to be pitied.
California; the great eco state, instituted policies that have aggravated its running out of water. The absurdities that were allowed to run during the stewardship of Mr.S. as governor are very interesting.
They might even be able to make a claim against the massive fraud of carbon credits. The slowly unravelling inconvenient lie. Both Gore and Kerry being compensated for dancing The GWB Side Shuffle.
A dam was half emptied to allow some fourteen stranded fish to swim away. Lest they be caught and eaten. The same people putting bricks in their toilet cisterns to reduce water flow. Notice how your toilet cisterns are getting smaller. The more intelligent and moral having gained the ear of regulators.
So we have to flush more than once, actually using more water than before. Then of course we had the absurdity of lowering the temperature of our hot water systems. The argument of preventing children scalding themselves had partial merit. But the real crux was the illusion of saving energy. So we use a greater mix of hot to cold. Again destroying that particular rigorously citated junk.
These are the same illusionists complaining about dirty coal. Having coal railed about the country to power stations, previously purpose built over coal reserves. Gross stupidies started in America. And adopted as essentially cute, in such nations as Australia. They could never take a peek to look for the handlers and the real agendas.
And we haven’t even discussed the complex foreign ownership scam of utilities. The same light headed having crude oil railed (conned by rail interests) about America. When the real world used pipelines. The argument of spillage; predictably and since clearly demonstrated to be a total stupidity. The accidents and devastations stand. As do the real facts regarding Fracking.
The absurdity of the ‘Real women wear fake fur’ campaign, that followed on from The Baby Fur Seal Affair with Brigitte Bardot in tow is a classic example. It began in 1975, when American synthetic fur manufacturers sent their agents provocateur into the field.
The real story has almost no connection to the emotive gripped fiction. The seals were clubbed by the French film crew. The Canadian Inuit did not want to be involved. And the true story is even more tragic. To block disease and the ravaged fishing industry, massive Canadian government slaughters have been organised.
A problem that did not exist was created and exacerbated to the ecological disaster that it became. And for what purpose? For a hidden American lobby group to capture a market share of the fur trade. Aided and abetted by morons in The Canadian Administration of the day.
Nestle and Wal Mart in California were virtually guaranteed their water needs, while others suffered restrictions. Wal Mart is tapering it’s operations. And Nestle is moving out.
Mr.S. of course is the great celebrity with a packaged persona and a true history a little different to that postured for populist consumption.
Concerning The American State Department caused tragedy in The Ukraine, he commented: ‘If I could get my hands on that Putin’. A rival for the award with Australia’s Tony Abbott who wanted to ‘Shirtfront Putin’.
What do these ‘leaders’ eat for breakfast. It certainly isn’t brain food.
Perhaps they should have consulted Bubba concerning The Kursk Incident of 12/8/2000. Poor Bubba had not only lost The American Nuclear Codes, but also The USN was running its own operations in The Russian Barents Sea.
The Kursk Tragedy did not occur as a result of an initiating explosion in The Kursk. It was rammed by two USN submarines in Russian waters. One limped to Scotland and the other to Norway with history later fudged on the naval record books.
Now that terrible fellow Putin contacted Bubba and clarified with him, the real definition of Unprovoked Act of War. And further explained what he (Putin) was expected to do under the circumstances.
Now Putin being a peaceful fellow in the normal sense; much maligned and misunderstood; Bubba having his mind absorbed by other passions, and disregarding the antics of his Bodiceia, like a good little fellow, read the Russian script to MSM as instructed.
Problem solved. The American caused tragedy consigned to an agreed history. But reigning in the control that had been lost is not always an issue of theory intersecting reality at a user friendly point.
The Russian Naval Kursk, was actually a GRU assigned submarine. It was rammed by The USS Memphis and The USS Toledo. The RN Splendid was also involved. Many manipulations of the events have been promulgated. And as with the distorted movie of The Benghazi Incident, a movie was made concerning a Russian submarine, that helps confuse the reality. The Philadelphia Experiment and Kettering, are other examples
On 4/10/2003, journalist James Forlong was found dead. He was investigating the true history of The RN Splendid. I am reminded of the deaths of David Kelly (WMDs), and Robin Cook (Middle East). And even the manufactured dalliances of DSK. While the real ones of others, were hidden as ‘Official Secrets’, or matters of ‘National Security’.
On 9/8/2014, the leading edge USN submarine, The USS Virginia, demonstrated that its stealthness is part of the mythology. (There are some interesting comparisons concerning The USAF during The Kosovo War.) The Virginia was ‘discovered’ within a half hour of crossing into The Russian Barents Sea, and chased out. All these events are sadly morale busters for The American Military.
No less than the real stories behind events ranging from; The 1960 Gary Powers U2 Incident (also a movie verson), to KAL-007, The Hainan Island Incidents, The 21/12/1988 Lockerbie Incident, The USS Cole Incident, The USS Vincennes Incident, The Yvonne Fletcher Incident, and many more; ranging from pure fakeries, to conspiracies, to false flags.
On 12/4/2014, The USS Donald Cookthe leading edge US Aegis destroyer, was electronically ‘shut down’ by The Russian Airforce, in The Black Sea.
One of the many such incidents confused on the net, concerning dates:from 2014 to 2016 and location; The Barents Sea, The Bering Sea, or The Black Sea. Apart from The Treaty of Montreaux agreements, concerning the flying of naval ensigns in The Black Sea. Often photoshopped, or shots of open sea sailing being substituted.
On 13/10/2012, The USS Montpelier collided with The USS San Jacinto off Florida on 29/4/1986, The USS Atlanta ran aground in The Strait of Gibraltar. On 17/1/1989, The USS Norfolk collided with The USS San Diego in Chesapeake Bay, off Virginia.
The Gulf of Mexico, to this day, leaks radiation from purpose sunk USN vessels; from the days of a prior age of scientific theories. Operations Fishbowl and Starfish are classic. Protected by The CFC Lie they expect the same junk science about climactic fantasies to be taken seriously.
Radiation certificates are required for the export of Yellow Fin Tuna, yet it can be consumed freely in North America. A far greater devastation than the 20/4/2010 Deepwater Horizon Incident. Again fictionalised in a motion picture, to mask the reality. And as with The 24/3/1989, Exxon Valdez Incident, again suffering a motion picture sterilisation. Radiation and toxic food products are a bigger issue than oiled birds, or, it might get warmer.
The Savannah Delta Project; was a catastrophy waiting to happen. As were Bhopal, Seveso, and Minamata. But we don’t hear of those. We know of Fukushima, and maybe Chernobyl. But Three Mile Island is hidden away. And The Goldsborough Incidents are almost unknown
It’s time to forget the unknowns and concentrate on pivotal social issues. Is The NSA reading Facebook?. How to increase the awareness of Global Warming. How to block oil pipelines. In the meantime we can enjoy our piece of Vietanamese catfish. Fresh from the bottom of the rivers, that has fed on the defoliants and cacinogens dropped on the hapless region under Nixon’s insane Operation Ranch Hand.
The White House Press Room has grown from 49 to over 400. Less CNN, The NY Times, The LA Times, Breitbart, certain disgruntleds, and MSM stalwarts, unable to help themselves. And of course the use of live feeds confusing the fiction writers has caused disarray.
The road to recovery for America; and as a consequence; virtually all The First World; will neither be easy, nor painless.
