The Great Eclipse of 2024 has now come and gone – and people who were lucky enough to witness it understand what it feels like when the sun, the star that gives us light and life, is dimmed by the shadow of the moon. The White House has given the go-ahead for scientists to begin dimming the sun and brightening the clouds to fight “global warming.” Once we decide to “solar geoengineer” the Earth – to spray highly reflective particles of a material, such as sulfur into the stratosphere to deflect sunlight and thereby decrease the temperature of the planet, then we will never see a blue sky again and the feeling of that sudden chill will haunt us into the future. Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks with the founder of Geoengineering Watch, Dane Wigington about FLATLINE SUN – (WON’T YOU COME?).



The Great Eclipse of 2024 has now come and gone — and people who were lucky enough to witness it can now understand what it feels like when the sun, the star that gives us light and life immediately dimmed by the shadow of the moon.

The shadow consists of two parts, the umbra, where the Sun is completely blocked, and the penumbra, where the Sun is partially obscured.

Many notice if they look to the west they see the oncoming umbral shadow. Any clouds on the horizon will go dark as the Moon’s shadow sweeps over them, making the approaching umbra more noticeable.

Just before totality, all that remains of the Sun are a few shafts of light shining through deep valleys on the Moon’s leading the limb edge. The result is a few brilliant beads that disappear one after another.

These beads of light are called Baily’s beads.

The lunar shadow envelops you. Only a single bead remains — it shines like a brilliant diamond set into a pale ring created by the pearly white inner corona surrounding the Moon’s black silhouette.

During the umbra or totality, is where you start to feel a little uneasy. As the sunlight dims, you may notice animals, birds, and insects acting in a peculiar manner. Many start to settle in as if night is falling; street lights come on, and you may notice a perceptible drop in the temperature, and the wind may pick up, die down, and or change direction.

As time goes by you start to see totality’s wave of darkness speeding rapidly into the east.

The partial light is giving the surroundings a weird tint — colors change and then the sky starts to turn white.

The temperature will likely continue to cool slightly after totality concludes and begin to rise shortly thereafter. However, the change may be subtle and could be masked by a shift in wind speed and direction.

Now imagine the white sky and the small drop in temperature becoming the norm… that after the sun is back –all you see is a white milky sky and temperatures that remain cool and not wavering.

If the thought of the sky losing its blue tint and temperatures dropping triggers a hint of anxiety– and the thought of the sky and the earth remaining like this has you a bit unnerved — then maybe you should think about how the Whitehouse has given the go-ahead for scientists to begin dimming the sun and brightening the clouds to fight global warming.

If we decide to “solar geoengineer” the Earth—to spray highly reflective particles of a material, such as sulfur, into the stratosphere to deflect sunlight and so cool the planet— then we will never see a blue sky again and the feeling of that sudden cool will haunt us into the future.

The idea behind solar geoengineering is essentially to mimic what happens when volcanoes push particles into the atmosphere.

There are at least three initiatives underway that are studying the potential implementation of solar-radiation management, or S.R.M., as it is sometimes called: a commission under the auspices of the Paris Peace Forum, composed of fifteen current and former global leaders and some environmental and governance experts, that is exploring “policy options” to combat climate change and how these policies might be monitored; a Carnegie Council initiative of how the United Nations might govern geoengineering; and Degrees Initiative, an academic effort based in the United Kingdom and funded by a collection of foundations, that in turn funds research on the effects of such a scheme across the developing world.

The result of these initiatives, if not the goal, maybe to normalize the idea of geoengineering.

Now we all know that geoengineering is happening and that it is contributing to erratic weather patterns. We know that electromagnetic wave generators are force multiplying simple storms –making them more powerful and violent.

We are also fully aware of what chemtrails are doing to the environment as metals and other contaminants are raining down from our skies daily, toxifying the rainwater and the crops.

However, we should be careful not to call them chemtrails as the government calls them Stratospheric Aerosol Injections or S.A.I. where using that particular terminology separates the conspiracy cooks from those who know all about geoengineering and how it seems to be getting the go-ahead all over the world.

Sun dimming is a mad scientist scheme that many governments are eventually going to allow — because of the potential of global warming.

The Canadian government has announced that the country will be investing millions of dollars in taxpayer money into the sun-diming scheme presented by none other than Bill Gates.

The government’s Environment and Climate Change Canada released a 5-year plan for tackling so-called “global warming.”

As part of the plan, the ECCC revealed that major investments will be made into technologies that block the Sun’s light and heat from reaching the surface of the Earth.

Who needs a solar eclipse when you can cool the planet by blocking the sun and turning the skies a milky white?

Gates and his allies, including billionaire George Soros and the World Economic Forum believe they can “reverse global warming” by blocking out the Sun.

The idea was outlined in the Canadian government’s “Science Strategy 2024 to 2029” plan released by the ECCC.

The report from the country’s ruling Liberal Party reveals the plan seeks to “Understand the potential for climate engineering and determine the implications of technologies that aim to deliberately alter the climate system, typically to counteract climate warming like solar radiation modification, marine geoengineering, carbon dioxide removal techniques.

The United States has also given the green light for new plans and studies developed where climate or weather is controlled by spraying aerosols into the stratosphere to reflect sunlight into space, and should include goals for research, what’s necessary to analyze the atmosphere, and what impact these kinds of climate interventions may have on Earth, according to the White House’s Office of Science and Technology Policy.

These activities have already been reviewed in the spending plans for the future.

Congress directed the research plan be produced in its spending plan, which President Joe Biden signed into law.

Some of the techniques, such as spraying sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere, are known to have harmful effects on the environment and human health. But scientists and climate leaders who are concerned that humanity will overshoot its emissions targets say research is important to figure out how best to balance these risks against a possibly catastrophic rise in the Earth’s temperature.

Back in February, many other countries have already given the go-ahead for Bill Gates to pump chemicals into the sky.

Gates has been funding a major project at Harvard using balloons to deploy aerosols.

There have been organized groups that have stepped in and forced Gates and Sorors to shut down the operation. The more support it gets from world forums the more we will see these experiments continue.

These geoengineering approaches were once considered taboo by scientists and regulators who feared that tinkering with the environment could have unintended consequences.

However, researchers are now receiving taxpayer funds and private investments to advance Gates’s ideas for “global cooling.”

Some critics claim that the use of aerosols in our stratosphere could make climate change worse, damage the ozone layer, or pose other unknown health concerns.

The Carnegie Climate Governance Initiative warned that if the process suddenly stopped, it “could cause rapid temperature rise that would be disruptive to human society and be dangerous for many species.”

In a nutshell, the study argues that once you begin solar geoengineering, you can’t stop until or unless enough carbon has been eliminated from the atmosphere to lower the earth’s temperature below a certain threshold.

If there’s too much carbon left, then a sudden halt to the geoengineering could skyrocket, resulting in “termination shock,” a concept that describes a sudden, drastic elevation in global temperatures that life on earth doesn’t have time to adapt to. In other words, it could result in a global extinction event.

Other risks include changes to rain patterns, UV levels, animal life cycles, and plant growth.

Others, like Daniel Schrag, director of the Harvard University Center for the Environment, admit that the idea of blocking out the Sun could be a terrible idea — but still insist that it’s needed.

This is what they call “the science” and it should be trusted.

According to Scientific American, a supercomputer called Derecho will help climate scientists decide whether to block the sun.

Derecho, began operating at the National Center for Atmospheric Research and will allow scientists to run more detailed weather models for research on solar geoengineering, said Kristen Rasmussen, a climate scientist at Colorado State University who is studying how human-made aerosols, which can be used to deflect sunlight, could affect rainfall patterns.

Because Derecho is three and a half times faster than the previous NCAR supercomputer, her team can run more detailed models to show how regional changes to rainfall can be caused by the release of aerosols, adding to scientists’ understanding of the risks from solar geoengineering … The machine will also be used to study other issues related to climate change.”

In Alameda, California the group is using the first technology in the country to test ways to brighten clouds in an effort to cool the globe.

The project is being held on the USS Hornet.

Jessica Medrado, who is one of the scientists from the University of Washington’s Marine Cloud Brightening Project in the Bay Area, said Alameda provides the perfect cloud conditions over the bay.

The goal is to mimic the effects of pollution in a cleaner way by using salt water to brighten clouds, which scientists hope, will then reflect more sunlight back into space to help cool the Earth.

Sarah Doherty, a senior research scientist with the University of Washington and the program director for the cloud brightening project, said right now they need to figure out if the end goal is even possible and how much impact it could have.

They fully admit that what they are doing is geoengineering and that it is a controversial issue.

They are not ever sure of the kind of negative effects or feedback that can keep going on while they do these projects.

The group of researchers plans to be in the Bay Area throughout the summer continuing to geoengineer the weather.

So why does this have to happen and why are they doing this without the people deciding where the money goes?

Well, it is simple.

With the 2016 Paris Climate Accords, nations adopted a resolution that committed them to “holding the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2° C above pre-industrial levels and pursuing efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5° C above pre-industrial levels.”

The method to accomplish this was supposed to be the reduction of emissions of carbon dioxide and methane by replacing fossil fuels with clean energy.

That is happening—indeed, the pace of that transition is quickening perceptibly in the United States.

It is reported that with the adoption of the Biden Administration’s Inflation Reduction Act and its ambitious spending on renewable power, we are meeting our goals.

But it’s not happening fast enough: the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has said that we need to cut worldwide emissions in half by 2030, and we’re not on track to come particularly close to that target—in this country or globally. Even before 2030, we may, at least temporarily, pass the 1.5-degree mark.

So their solution is geoengineering — something that they deny even contributes to strange weather patterns and violent storms that respond to these atmospheric manipulations.

Everyone studying solar geoengineering seems to agree that it’s a terrible thing. But still, they believe it’s worth a shot — another example of how nuclear scientists worried about destroying the planet and the universe with the atomic bomb — but pushed the button anyway. CERN runs the risk of creating unstable black holes that could suck Geneva and the rest of the world down with it. But they do it anyway — and fire up the collider during the eclipse.

Mohammed Mofizur Rahman, a Bangladeshi scientist who is one of Degrees Initiatives’ grantees, noted, “It’s crazy stuff.” So did the veteran Hungarian diplomat Janos Pasztor, who runs the Carnegie initiative on geoengineering governance, and said, “People should be suspicious.”

But again I say — they are doing it anyway.

Aluminum, calcium carbonate, and, most poetically, diamond dust, have been proposed to be sprayed into the sky from balloons, rockets, and planes.

Lowering the temperatures on purpose would affect global weather patterns, it would produce different and hard-to-predict outcomes in different places.

We are seeing this happening now and the media calls it climate change– it’s geoengineering and the best the media can do is call it tin foil hat conspiracy theory.

But with geoengineering, we have a so-called climate “solution” that helps some and harms others.

This most definitely sparks its kind of crisis.

A Brookings Institution report last December began with a scenario—it’s 2035, and a country begins unilateral deployment of S.R.M.: “The country has decided that it can no longer wait; they see geoengineering as their only option.”

Initially, “the decision seems wise, as the increase in global temperatures starts to level off. But soon other types of anomalous weather begin to appear: unexpected and severe droughts hit countries around the world, disrupting agriculture.

In response, “another large country, under the impression it has been severely harmed . . . carries out a focused military strike against the geoengineering equipment, a decision supported by other nations who also believe they have been negatively impacted.

Back in January if you recall Iran accused Turkey of stealing their rain — acknowledging that Turkey has the power to conduct weather control. It is reported that The ALKA array in Turkey could easily heat the ionosphere with lasers and direct storms away from Iran.

Cloud stealing” is a term referring to the belief or accusation that countries are using technology to manipulate weather patterns to divert rain clouds away from a specific area.

This can be done with something as easy as cloud seeding.

Imagine if India started pumping sulfur into the atmosphere only to see a huge drought hit Pakistan: two nuclear powers, already at odds, with one convinced the other is harming its people.

Or maybe it’s China—driven by a series of summers like the one it just endured—that starts down this road, and it’s India that suddenly faces unrelenting floods. These two nations also share a militarized border and a series of overlapping international alliances.

Or maybe it’s Russia or any number of countries. Global treaties prohibit weather modification as a tool of war something that the U.S. attempted in Vietnam, but at present, they don’t rule out war as a reaction to weather modification gone awry.

Again not a conspiracy theory — the media have it all under control and are quick to report that weather warfare is becoming more and more of a reality and that flatlining the sun or blocking it is only the beginning.

All this explains why, earlier this year, sixty “senior scholars” from across the world, now joined altogether by more than three hundred and fifty political and physical scientists, signed a letter urging an absolute moratorium—“an international non-use agreement”—on solar geoengineering.

The U.N. Security Council would be a problematic governing body: Anything can be blocked by the veto of five of the most polluting countries. Some kind of governance by the major powers? You’d need the agreement of the U.S., Russia, China, and India, and there’s no chance of that.

The U.N. has charged the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change with tracking the progress of global warming. But the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, which oversaw the Paris Climate Accord lacks the mandate to look at article 2 of its charter which is about negative anthropogenic interference with the climate system.

Go figure.

Do you ever wonder why they shut down anyone who speaks of geoengineering? This is why.

It’s like talking about pedophilia at the Drag Queen story hour at the public library.

It is an ugly reality, but no one wants to talk about it.

The excuse given is they want to keep politics out of the discussion because they believe it is too polarizing–or maybe that the reality of it happening would horrify most Americans — if enough agreed that it is like a needless vaccine for the planet — a quick fix with nasty side effects.

Policymakers in the European Union have signaled a willingness to begin international discussions of whether and how humanity could limit heating from the sun.

The EU will support international efforts to assess comprehensively the risks and uncertainties of climate interventions, including solar radiation modification, and promote discussions on a potential international framework for its governance, including research-related aspects.

For years, anyone who said that geoengineering and weather modification were being used was labeled a conspiracy theorist. As it turns out, it was true all along, and with the White House report released, the Canadian support and the Support from the EU mainstream naysayers are suddenly admitting it as well.

What they’re not readily admitting, however, is that geoengineering is as dangerous as climate change itself and that geoengineering is responsible for the most catastrophic changes in our climate.

The globalist cabal is trying to convince us that the cause of the problem is the solution, all while pinning the blame for climate change on regular people who drive cars to work and eat meat.

It is more evidence that the Climate Change cult is based on greed and mad science — that aims to limit resources and starve and depopulate the Earth.

    Witnessed the solar eclipse today with my old welding helmet. It was pretty spectacular.! Temperature was 74 after eclipse it was 69 it dropped that much I live in Western PA. I was up near the Erie border out in the sticks I got totally dark there was a lot of shooting and people shooting fireworks in the lake I noticed the aurora around it when it was fully epicenter. it looked like a silver or white diamond in the bottom of it. I know other people it was other places seen green and some said blue light? Take care enjoy freedom every every day above ground is a good day

    These poli-sci nerds running the country better get a grip on the respite from real life that they call “service to their constituents”… Hell, a wild night of Scrabble at their parties is probably how they’re coming up with these crackpot ideas about the Earth 🌎 lmao. Much love to the GZ program crew. Poli-sci nerds eat 💩 🥪

    The sun activates the body to make Vit.D is why. Vitamin-D is used by every organ in our body and you know what this means. I am waiting for my rescue, Clyde. You know who is in charge. You know, the big Guy. 🙂

    Global warming is a farce perpetrated by globalist autocrats. No claimed claimed rise in sea level has ever or will ever occur from melting floating icebergs or ice sheets, why is that? You can prove this fact yourself by putting an ice cube in a glass, filling it with water until just one more drop will make it spill over. Watch the cube melting and see what doesn’t happen!

    A major way to “harness solar heat” is to shift away from photovoltaics to desert based concentrated solar thermal power (CSP). When employing a liquid-metal topping binary Rankine cycle net thermodynamic conversion efficiency, heat-to-electricity, can exceed 40%. No solar panel operates anywhere near the Carnot limit of an Hg-binary combined cycle, for example. That technology was used through the mid-20’th century by commercial utility generating plants, and later the LM topping cycle was appropriated by NASA for use in their ’70’s SNAP-8 program. Beyond that, research papers and work continued at MIT and NASA Lewis (Glenn) laboratory Cleveland into the 90’s. It has yet to be piloted. Instead, they’re now trying do develop a critical CO2 cycle that operates at (critically) elevated temperature and pressure and really constitutes no more than a research project, rife for government/taxpayer funding! It would perform no better than LM binary and likely have recurring durability issues being an inchoate proposal.

    CSP has added benefit over solar photovoltaics because it integrates with geothermal site components when such plants are, or can be made, coterminous.
