TweetStorm Update: #HandsOffMotherEarth

We Need Your Help!

When: January 9th 2018, 11am London Time. (view countdown clock here).

Duration: 1 hour

#HandsOffMotherEarth TweetStorm

Feel free to copy and/or download any of the information below. The images have been sourced from the #HandsOffMotherEarth Manifesto cover and hashtags added. Please note that twitter has cracked down on accounts posting the same tweet multiple times and posting too many unsolicited (@) tweets. For this reason we recommend rotating tweets, and limiting your @’s to 5 per hour; alternatively you can create your own tweets without @’s. For more information see twitters rules and best practices policies.

How to join in the Tweetstorm:
1. Use the hashtag #HandsOffMotherEarth on all of your tweets for one hour, starting at 11am London time.

2. Include a link to the Hands Off Mother Earth: 2018 Manifesto Against Geoengineering and/or website (see below).

3. Use the images provided, share your own images or visit @OpCImageGallery for images.

4. Send Tweets to the United Nations, your President/Prime Minister etc., local representatives, environmental organizations, media outlets, and academic institutions.

Finding Wally: Propaganda, Inner Circles & Deniability

Finding Wally

Media outlets and online scientific communities came alive this week, with headlines such as “Could an anti-global-warming atmospheric spraying programme really work?”,  “100 Special planes and $2.5 Billion per year for sulphate geoengineering” and “Solar geoengineering could be remarkably inexpensive”.

This buzz of activity surrounds findings of a ‘new’ study, “Stratospheric aerosol injection tactics and costs in the first 15 years of deployment”, by Wake Smith and Gernot Wagner. The study looks at the hypothetical possibility and costs of conducting a global geoengineering program. Interestingly, and perhaps in an attempt to deflect from questions surrounding ongoing aviation induced cloud cover being reported by citizens worldwide, the study also looks at  whether the SAIL (Stratospheric aerosol injection lofter) program could be deployed secretly, concluding that it could not. This conclusion will be explored by examining existing relevant documentation relating to SAI technologies and by comparing US air traffic statistics to the SAIL deployment statistics provided by Smith and Wagner.

I would also like to note, that when looking closely at many of the scientific papers relating to geoengineering, certain names and institutions keep popping up. As highlighted in the article “Harvard Science = Mad Science”, the pro geoengineering community appears to be dominated by a top down (vertical) hierarchy. Meaning a small group of people are using various types of capital to influence the many. Any observer has to wonder why Harvard  appears to have developed a propensity for publishing pageant articles related to ‘geoengineering and secrecy’.
