We now have rogue scientists and ecologists creating geo-causal events that are not even being addressed in Climate Science circles. Sulfur hexafluoride or SF-6, a potent greenhouse gas, is intentionally being released into streams and rivers along with dumping iron sulphate into the ocean as ways to combat “Global Warming”. These risky experiments appear to be potentially more detrimental than beneficial for the planet. Either we are gearing up for a global catastrophe or mankind is hacking the planet in order to alleviate Climate Change. Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis about SF6 – THE MEN WHO STALLED THE WORLD.





A new study published in the Journal of Geophysical Earth found that our planet is spinning faster than ever, resulting in our days being shorter than ever.

Truth be told, you probably can’t tell that the planet is spinning faster or the days are getting shorter because the difference is infinitesimally small. A normal day here on Earth is supposed to be 24 hours, which consists of 86,400 seconds. But on June 29, we had our shortest day on record when the day concluded 1.59 milliseconds sooner than it normally would. One millisecond is a thousandth of a second. For reference, the average blink takes about 100 milliseconds, so this change in the length of the day was quite literally a blink and you’ll miss it situation.

But whether you felt it or not, the change is noteworthy. Researchers believe that the planet is spinning faster than it normally does — a change that they first started noticing in 2016. Since then, the rotation of our rock has been on the rise, and it has been consistently increasing its pace. 2020 was the fastest rotation on record, until 2021 — and now 2022 is on pace to beat it.

While this change likely isn’t having much effect on your daily life, it does run the risk of throwing our methods for keeping time for a complete loop. Currently, we rely on atomic time to measure the passage of time on Earth, monitoring the frequency of radiation of atoms to measure every second. But that could become less reliable if the planet’s rotation is changing.

As a result, some scientists have called for the introduction of a “leap second,” which would subtract one second from a day in order to keep us on track for the atomic time system. However, doing so would be a significant risk that could mess with our technological infrastructure as most machines and servers are not equipped to add a second out of nowhere.

Now while this anomaly is baffling some scientists others are jumping on the bandwagon saying that it is the result of the planet heating up.

The cite that  human-caused climate change has altered the makeup of the planet, including melting the ice caps so significantly that it appears to have changed the angular velocity of the planet. As the Earth continues to spin faster, it’s getting harder and harder to get off this ride.

There are so many tings now that can be attributed to climate change.  It is being reported that  dead bodies are showing up regularly because of melting snow and receding shorelines.

The most recent case comes from Switzerland, where thawing glaciers in the Swiss Alps have revealed human remains believed to be hidden since the 1960s.

Earlier this year, a decomposed body was discovered in a barrel that was found in Lake Mead. The victim had suffered a gunshot wound and was believed to have been tossed in the massive reservoir back in the 1970s or 1980s. Days later, more human remains were spotted — this time on the shore of Callville Bay. And this week, even more bones came to the surface.

All of these discoveries are occurring as Lake Mead is experiencing its lowest water levels in nearly a century. While the water loss has stopped for the time being, the lake has been at just 27% of its total capacity this summer, according to data from NASA. Heat waves plus a seemingly endless drought that is the worst the West has experienced in 1,200 years keeps draining the reserve of its precious resource and is revealing some of the secrets that the lake hides.

Yes there is a mountain of empirical evidence that the planet is heating up but it is summer and hopefully the winter will be wet and snow will fall again to balance the water table. With all of the geoengineering taking place, I am curious as to whether or not we will be seeing bikini beach weather in December.

I highly doubt it but with all of the different geoengineering programs underway it is becoming harder to predict a rosy outcome for our seasons and weather in general.

Many times I have addressed the issue of geoengineering on this planet where science has hacked into the various ecosystems creating strange weather and other anomalies where insects and animals are dying and people are suffering because of weather changes that create droughts and extreme weather.

Monarch butterflies, the orange and black beauties who float from flower to flower through spring and summer, have been classified as endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). That designation, the second most severe conservation status, is the result of years of a steep decline in the monarch butterfly population in the last 40 years.

The species that is landing on IUCN’s “red list” is specifically the migratory monarch butterfly, a subspecies of the beloved butterfly that is known for making the long journey across North America during its breeding season. That travel produces some spectacular visuals as thousands of these delicate winged insects take to the skies together. It is also great for the planet, as the butterflies spread pollen and help cultivate a healthy ecosystem.

Fewer butterflies are flying and many species are dying.

Scientists of course cite the changing climate and that it has created conditions that are far from ideal for these butterflies, including more severe temperatures, extreme storms, and wildfires that limit their migration path. Milkweed, an essential source of nectar and a favorite spot of monarchs to lay their eggs, has been destroyed by toxic chemicals found in the air.

Scientists believe it is from herbicides and insecticides — others who have been watching the skies for chemtrails believe that this is a cause for investigation.

Around 60 percent of all social media discourse on geoengineering is about chemtrails.  While they are a problem and scientists will continue to tell you they are not real — there are many more ways that the planet can be geoengineered and many of these methods have been happening for decades.

Now I am not trying to diminish the effects of chemtrails on the planet in fact in a recent study the effects of plane exhaust has been reviewed and it is being reported that it does affect weather patterns.

In the latest Nature publication, a new article highlights the effect of flying on climate change and thus on the weather.

According to the article:

“The burning of jet fuel at high altitude affects the climate both directly—due to the emissions of CO2, H2O, sulfur dioxide and soot and indirectly due to the short-lived formation of contrail cirrus and the changes in O3, CH4 and stratospheric water vapor due to NOx emissions.”

Through these changes in the chemistry of our atmosphere, or geoengineering, globalists are deliberately destroying the weather and the climate.

And what’s very interesting is that two-thirds of those effects are mostly due to non-CO2 effects. While the non-CO2-related effects are both warming and cooling, their net effective radiative forcing—dominated by contrail cirrus—is positive…

So the CO2 propaganda is just another lie. Due to the complexity and uncertainty of aviation’s non-CO2 effects on the climate on top of the general difficulty to regulate international aviation emissions, aviation’s non-CO2 effects are currently excluded from international climate agreements.

So through the combustion of fuel, they are chemtrailing us, poisoning our air and weaponizing our weather and climate.

No need to get into arguments with people — the studies are all pointing to geoengineering of the planet — the argument is over the inventions of the chemtrailing.

Most of the time though chemtrails steer storms or even contribute to force multiplied weather systems. This summer however we have been experiencing heat in many parts of the world where weather is usually temperate –and we are seeing flash flooding in areas where the climate is usually dry.

One can see that this very well can be the result of a Butterfly Effect where weather geoengineering is triggering spikes in microclimate areas.

So there have been times where I have been asked — how can mankind manipulate and create drought conditions when we know it is not being caused by chemtrails.

Well it is complicated but a new report may shed some light on what may be complicating an already fragile ecosystem.

A massive ecological study that’s happening across the United States, and which is designed to track the impact of long-term changes like a warming climate, is deliberately releasing a highly potent and persistent greenhouse gas called SF-6 in national parks and forests.’

Sulfur hexafluoride, is “the most potent greenhouse gas known to date,” according to the Environmental Protection Agency. It’s 22,800 times more effective at trapping heat than carbon dioxide, and lasts in the atmosphere for thousands of years.

So far, this ecology study has released around 108 pounds of the gas, which has about the same impact as burning more than a million pounds of coal.

That may not seem like a big deal in the grand scheme of global emissions, but government scientists working at federal parks and forests have objected to using this gas on public lands — especially since this major study is designed to go on for 30 years and alternative gasses are available.

It comes at a time when all kinds of researchers are thinking about the climate effects of past practices, with some saying that scientists who understand the urgency of the climate crisis have a special obligation to set an example to the public by reducing the greenhouse gas emissions of their own work.

Even though scientists claim that they are using a small amount in their experiments the fact that it can heat the atmosphere with very little should raise the debate about geoengineering and how there can be not yet defined effects of these experiments on the planet.

For decades, ecologists have sometimes burbled small amounts of sulfur hexafluoride into streams and rivers, in order to study how quickly gasses can move from the water into the air. One reason that’s of interest is that, although inland waterways cover up only a small fraction of the Earth’s surface, researchers believe these running waters could be an important source of greenhouse gasses, as rainfall can carry carbon from the ground into turbulent streams that later release it into the atmosphere.

Ecologists have always known that sulfur hexafluoride was itself a potent greenhouse gas but scientists have the excuse that they are using just a tiny amount.

Tests involving sulfur hexafluoride were built into the standardized protocols of the National Ecological Observatory Network, or NEON, which is an ambitious government-funded effort to track ecological changes. Its mission is to use consistent methods to collect all kinds of data on 81 different locations across the nation–and to do this regularly for three decades.

The planning for this half-billion-dollar ecological project, and the construction of its monitoring instruments, took around twenty years. It began operating at full tilt in 2019.

That’s the same year when a scientist at Yellowstone National Park started to question why NEON was releasing sulfur hexafluoride at Blacktail Deer Creek, according to documents obtained through a public records request by Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility, a group that supports workers within the government who are concerned about activities that can harm the environment.

Soon, government officials shared the concerns raised at Yellowstone with others who oversaw sites where NEON had been releasing this gas. Emails went out to Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the Bureau of Land Management, and the United States Forest Service. About half of the NEON sites with streams where sulfur hexafluoride was released were on forest service lands, records show.

“SF6 is a potent greenhouse gas and over the 30 year NEON program the release will be equivalent to burning millions of pounds of coal,” wrote Bret Schichtel of the National Park Service’s Air Resource Division to Linda Geiser, the National Air Program Manager for the Forest Service. “We would like to know if you are aware of this issue and share similar concerns.”

In December of 2020, representatives of the park and forest services held a virtual meeting with NEON employees. Emails sent after that meeting make it clear that the public land officials felt a “strong desire” to discontinue the use of this gas.

In 2021, according to one memo sent from NEON to Roehm, NEON used approximately 18 pounds of the gas, which is the equivalent of greenhouse gas emissions from driving an average car over 460,000 miles.

That is only a small piece of the puzzle as while we have scientists releasing greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere that heat the planet — there are scientists that want to go beyond solar geoengineering to prove that they can cool the planet by tinkering with the phytoplankton population.

The Daily Beast reports: “Scientists wish to seed the planet’s oceans with more phytoplankton, an organism that’s already responsible for producing 50 percent of the oxygen in our atmosphere from carbon dioxide and sunlight.”

Since iron is a well-known way to get phytoplankton to bloom, scientists suggest we could slightly increase the presence of the metal by adding bits of iron to iron-deficient parts of the oceans. The more phytoplankton, the more carbon dioxide gets sucked up by our oceans — so simple, and some scientists say that it is brilliant but history has painted a different picture.

In ocean iron fertilization it has been shown that the amount of carbon dioxide removed from the atmosphere may be much lower than predicted, as carbon taken up by plankton may be released back into the atmosphere from dead plankton, rather than being carried to the bottom of the sea and sequestered.

Russ George is one of those mad individuals that feel that it is his duty to combat Global Warming with his company Planktos. Planktos’ big idea for combating global warming is that you dump some iron into the ocean, it creates a massive phytoplankton bloom, then the algae absorbs carbon dioxide through the process of photosynthesis.

The idea that he proposed was declared risky and possibly reckless. The thing that was overlooked by him and his band of mad scientists is that when algae dies it emits methane which is worse for the atmosphere than carbon dioxide. However, the obvious risks of dumping chemicals into the ocean did not faze George and his half baked effort at geoengineering. It did not stop him; George dumped 100 tons of iron sulphate into the Pacific Ocean.

The first reports about the project, which appeared in British newspaper The Guardian on the 15th of October 2012, presented it as a rogue geoengineering scheme – the largest in history and in “blatant violation” of international treaties. Critics suggested that Russ George had persuaded the Haida Nation village of Old Massett on the Queen Charlotte Islands of Haida Gwaii to fund the project by promising that it would be possible to sell carbon credits for the carbon dioxide taken up by phytoplankton.

He was investigated for misrepresenting his intentions and violating a moratorium on climate modification and geoengineering efforts. Andrew Parker of the Belfer Center at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government told the New York Times that George’s actions had apparently violated an international convention on ocean dumping and a U.N. convention on ocean fertilization for geoengineering purposes, along with a set of voluntary principles on geoengineering developed at Oxford.

George maintained plausible deniability by once again claiming that he wasn’t geoengineering at all: he was just trying to help the indigenous Haida people who live the region to re-invigorate their salmon fishery by increasing the fishes’ food supply.

Scientists can only be outraged at such a rogue display of mad science.

The exact logistical cost and effort to pull such a scheme off remain hazy, and it’s unclear how much of the greenhouse effect a concerted effort would be able to ameliorate.

Coincidentally on October 28th, 2012, a 7.7 earthquake hit the coast of British Columbia and there have been as many as 40 aftershocks including one that measured 6.4 in magnitude. The quake sent many residents on the coast fleeing for higher ground due to tsunami warnings that were issued as far away as Hawaii. The earthquake originated on the island of Haida Gwaii, the same Queen Charlotte Islands region that Russ George did his mad man scheme of dumping iron sulphate into the ocean.

Scientists are getting the funds necessary to create geo causal events that are not even being addressed in climate science circles.

Either we are gearing up for a global catastrophe or mankind is hacking the planet in order to combat Global Warming.

The process seems to be causing more problems than stopping them.

    Good idea, contacting your congressman, Rusty. Make copies of your correspondences both to and from them, in the event they do respond, them forward copies to Clyde so he can post them on these pages for all of us to read. Hopefully this is seconding an e/gmail from Clyde. This is a fascinating program, with a fascinating guest.

    The “solar way” to fight global warming is via CSP technology based on established black body radiation theory; selective surface technology; and Rankine, Sterling, or Brayton thermodynamic power cycles. CSP is able to trap more of the solar spectrum than even (stacked) solar cells, which only operates above specific wavelength(s) to knock electrons free as Einstein showed in his Nobel Prize winning “Photoelectric effect” paper.

    CSP (concentrated solar THERMAL power) has a much larger consortium of industries footprint, also therein jobs. While the US largely began CSP research in our National labs it’s ongoing development is now centered elsewhere (eg: middle east/Africa). Dubai has some interesting pilots with limited participation by US. China has a demonstrated interest in CSP in harnessing their Gobi desert Sun for baseline grid power supplying of distant cities. Ultra-high voltage DC comes into such electrical transmission as the distance grows.

    Solar panel arrays don’t favor heat, neither CME’s nor EMP’s. They have actually been shown to combust when overloaded/shorted, and cannot be Faraday caged for protection. Only the power block can be.

    It’s far easier to replace Carrington level event transmission lines, than solar panel farm array$.

    -Why are US central planners focusing on solar panels and batteries I’m wondering?

    CSP transforms “heat” into electricity, not just some above Planck wavelength requirement photo electric effect photons.

    I thought the issue was continued global heating and how to control/mitigate it. Converting into transmissible grid power sounds about right?

    Those monarch butterflies are dying because the trees they roost in during the winter in Mexico are being cut down by poor people. I saw a story about it on a documentary on TV years ago.
