It was darkly amusing to hear the proponents of geoengineering weather-manipulation saying they really didn't know what the effects of artificially reduced sunlight on plants, or coral, would be. They did something like this:
"The short answer is this shouldn't be a problem..."
+ long-winded blather
+ conclusion: "So, the short answer is, we don't know how this will affect plants."
Don't get me wrong. I think it is a good, though precarious thing, to remove and store CO2 from the atmosphere, (so long as this industry is powered by renewable energy).
However, I do NOT think it is a good thing to try to artificially reduce sunlight to the surface, especially if this is done by scattering fine particles made of barium, aluminum, lithium, or anything else. I can just imagine Right-Guard getting a government contract to lace the atmosphere with spray-on anti-antiperspirant. Cuz, we are humans, and we always know exactly what we are doing.
Because Alex Jones reads so much, many of his so-called conspiracy theories end up being correct. While it has only recently come to light that the government has been doing weather-altering atmospheric spraying, ("chem-trails"), Jones announced, (or, "predicted"), this activity many years ago. By the time the public learns of any testing by the government, the testing has likely been going on for one or two decades already.
This is most true for advanced military weapons - (one of which is weather manipulation).
Proud pundits and shills nobly stand by their arguments that, "there is no scientific evidence..." as if current lack of scientific evidence, (as when no measurements have yet been made, e.g.), is profound proof of a negative.
But, so it seems, that evidence may have been falling to the ground for some time, and the dutiful media has not been picking it up. (Investigative journalism means wait for official press releases). So - exactly what chem-trails are or might be, is a little bit cloudy, shall we say. Like whomever really killed JFK. Doesn't mean anything has really been proved or disproved.
Some suggest that chem-trails may be the cause of Morgellen's(sp?) Disease - which may be the illness that Joni Mitchell has, (of all people).
I've looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down and still somehow
It's cloud's illusions I recall
I really don't know clouds at all
We really don't know, at all...
But here's one short scientific answer...
