Earth is 20% darker, say experts
David Adam

Wednesday 17 December 2003 22.25 EST

Human activity is making the planet darker as well as warmer, scientists say. They believe levels of sunlight reaching Earth's surface have declined by up to 20% in recent years because air pollution is reflecting it back into space and helping to make bigger, longer-lasting clouds.

The "global dimming" effect could have implications for everything from the effectiveness of solar power to the growth of plants and trees.

"Over the past couple of years it's become clear that the solar irradiance at the Earth's surface has decreased," said Jim Hansen, a climate scientist with Nasa's Goddard Institute for Space Science in New York.

Experts say global dimming is probably down to tiny particles such as soot, and chemical compounds such as sulphates accumulating in the atmosphere. "Data from 100 stations around the world show that the amount of black carbon in the atmosphere is twice as big as we assumed," said Dr Hansen.
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

Is Earth Getting Darker?

By J. Madeleine Nash    Monday, May 17, 2004

The sun is not growing weaker, yet its light appears to be dimming. Between 1960 and 1990, some scientists believe, the amount of solar radiation reaching Earth's surface may have declined as much as 10% — and in some places, Hong Kong, for example, more than 35%.
...
The impacts of that tug-of-war on the climate system could be devilishly difficult to untangle.
...

Many questions remain, including the true extent of the dimming. One analysis pegs the average worldwide darkening to be about 4% over three decades, while another computes it to be more than twice that much. There are also questions about the reliability of the devices that measure the sunlight reaching Earth's surface. Known as radiometers, these instruments are nothing more than flat, black solar collectors capped with glass. They are sometimes finicky; a smudge of dirt or a speck of dust can cause bogus readings and change the calculated results.

Solar dimming, in other words, is a problem still in the process of being defined, and as its dimensions become clearer, so will the nature of the challenge the world faces. Although scientists have done a lot of thinking about global warming, they are just beginning to grapple with the problem of how global warming and solar dimming interact. As Ramanathan puts it, "It's like we have a new gorilla sitting down at the table"--and it could turn out to be a very big gorilla indeed.
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

The Contrail Effect
By Peter Tyson
Posted 04.18.06

NOVA

Are vapor trails from aircraft influencing the climate?
...

Contrail hiatus

At least that was the case until September 11, 2001. For the first time since the jet age began, virtually all aircraft were grounded over the United States for three days. Even as they tried like the rest of us to absorb the enormity of the terrorist attacks, climatologists realized they had an unprecedented opportunity to scrutinize individual contrails, and several studies were quickly launched.

One study looked at the aforementioned contrails that grew to cover 7,700 square miles. Those condensation trails arose in the wake of six military aircraft flying between Virginia and Pennsylvania on September 12, 2001. From those isolated contrails, unmixed as they were with the usual dozens of others, Patrick Minnis, a senior research scientist at NASA's Langely Research Center, and his colleagues were able to gain valuable insight into how a single contrail forms. Those once-in-a-lifetime data sets are so useful that Minnis is about to analyze them again in an expanded study.

...
...
Ongoing debate

In a study published in 2004, for example, Minnis and colleagues reported that contrails are capable of increasing average surface temperatures sufficiently to account for a warming trend in the U.S. between 1975 and 1994. But some climatologists believe Minnis and his colleagues may have overestimated the contrail warming effect.

#AGU15 Accidental Geoengineering? Airline traffic may help create an icy haze that’s brightening U.S. skies

Anthony Watts / 5 days ago December 16, 2015   

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA —The data just didn’t seem to make sense. That’s often the story right before scientists make a leap in understanding. In this case, scientists had some evidence that skies in the continental United States have been brightening, after several decades of so-called “dimming.”

Brightening and dimming are overly simplified words that signify increases and decreases in how much light from the Sun (measured as “irradiance” in watts/m2) reaches the planet’s surface—and these measurements are often analyzed under cloud-free conditions.

For the observed dimming under clear skies, convention would point to aerosols. Levels of these tiny particles, associated with pollution, had been rising for decades prior to the 90s and began falling after that thanks to pollution controls. That could make today’s skies brighter than those in the 70s or 80s—and it could also warm the climate, as more direct radiation reaches the surface.

But when Chuck Long, a Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) researcher at the NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory, and his colleagues dug a bit deeper, something didn’t add up.


If the recent clear sky “brightening” trend were due to cleaner air and fewer aerosols alone, it should be accompanied by an increase in direct downwelling shortwave radiation, one part  of solar radiation reaching  the surface directly from the Sun. That didn’t happen, Long reported during the American Geophysical Union fall meeting in San Francisco.

...

So the scientists dug deeper, and in a provocative new analysis, not yet published, Long suggests that a high-altitude “ice haze,” created by water and other emissions from aircraft, is responsible. “I’m talking about a sub-visual contrail-generated haze of ice, which we do not classify as a cloud but gives blue sky more of a whitish tint.” Long said.

The finding—if verified—could mean that we are in essence already conducting a geoengineering experiment on the atmosphere, adding ice particles that change the way solar radiation reaches Earth’s surface. Understanding the overall impact of those changes on warming or cooling at the surface will take more research, Long said.

The hypothesis has some circumstantial support in other datasets, Long and his colleagues have found: The  brightening trend is closely correlated with U.S. Federal Aviation Administration commercial flight hours during 1995-2007; those aircraft emit both water and the particles necessary to crystalize that high-altitude water into ice.

Airplane Contrails May Be Creating Accidental Geoengineering

Dissipating haze from plane exhaust alters how sunlight reaches the Earth and may be unintentionally affecting our climate
By  Sarah Zielinski 
smithsonian.com
 December 16, 2015


If you go outside on a clear day and look up toward the sun—being careful to block out the bright disk with your thumb—you might see a hazy white region surrounding our star.

This haze is caused by airplanes, and it is gradually whitening blue skies, says Charles Long of NOAA’s Earth System Research Laboratory in Boulder, Colorado. “We might be actually conducting some unintentional geoengineering here,” Long said at a press conference this week at the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting in San Francisco.

The Desperation Of The Geoengineers, Documenting An Engineered Cool-Down
December 9, 2015

Dane Wigington
geoengineeringwatch.org

Geoengineering can and does create large scale chemical cool-downs, but at what cost to the overall climate system and life on Earth? If we are to be effective in the battle to expose and halt climate engineering, the effects of global geoengineering must be recognized, understood, and taken into consideration in regard to our conclusions. The following maps and radar/satellite images document a massive engineered cool-down of the US West while the Eastern US continues to hit record highs (the exact antithesis of the previous 3 years). The NOAA map below (produced on December 1st, 2015) reflects the predicted US temperatures for the period from December 7th through the 11th (2015). Each color shade represents an increase of 2-3 degrees above average temperatures. While some are still reciting a narrative of "global cooling", what is the real picture? And what major geoengineering impacts are being completely ignored by most?

...
Though the corporate controlled weather forecasting liars will try to explain away the engineered extremes as just "natural variability", it is up to us to see reality for what it is. It is up to all of us to recognize the engineered cool-downs for what they actually are, completely unnatural and highly destructive to the planet. The engineered cool-downs come at the cost of an even worse planetary warming, how much more can the web of life take?

...

Global climate engineering must be exposed and halted, there is no other way forward. The more researched and credible activists in this fight are, the more effective we will be in the battle. With ever increasing amounts of disinformation being put out by countless sources, now more than ever, preconceptions and bias must be abandoned in exchange for verifiable facts. We must diligently examine the sources of information behind all headlines.

A constant examination of front line data is how a correct compass heading is achieved. It is not about believing anyone, but rather what can be seen with ones own eyes. The award winning documentary "Chasing Ice" is a good start. This is a riveting film with no politics, just inarguable frontline footage. There are many agendas behind the ongoing geoengineering insanity, attempting to hide the damage already done to the climate by engineering cool-downs like the one documented above (while making the situation even worse overall in the process) is one of the primary goals. There is no benevolence in the climate engineering programs, none. It is about power and control, period. We must all work together in the desperate effort to wake the masses. DW

“Conspiracy Theorists” Are Vindicated: U.S. Senate Reports Chemtrails Are Real and Are Killing Us!

...

This time, you’ve got an actual official government document from the U.S. admitting to the placement of chemicals in our atmosphere.

The document can be found here  [ https://archive.org/stream/weatificat00unit/weatificat00unit_djvu.txt  ] but I’ll paste a few excerpts below to give you the jist of things.
To start with, Dr. Norman A Beckman begins by requesting a report on the history of weather modification.

Washington, D.C., July 30, 1976.

Dr. Norman A. Beckman,
 Acting Director, Congressional Research Service,
 Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.

Dear Dr. Beckman: Weather modification, although a relatively young science, has over the years stimulated great interest within the scientific, commercial, governmental, and agricultural communities. Such responses are readily understandable.

In the next section comes the government’s response, which has a few eyebrow-raising points:
 Although the Soviets and some U.S. private operators claim some success in suppressing hail by seeding clouds, our understanding of the physical processes that create hail is still weak. The one major U.S. held experiment increased our understanding of severe storms, but otherwise proved mostly the dimensions of what we do not yet know.


For over 30 years both legislative and executive branches of the Federal Government have been involved in a number of aspects of weather modification.

That last statement alone should have you clicking that link above to see the full document. Share it with your more skeptical friends and see what they have to say – I know it’s certainly opened my eyes quite a

 Originally trained as a physicist, J. Marvin Herndon earned a Ph.D. in nuclear chemistry. In the first half, he warned about the destructive practice of spraying particulates in the air (chemtrails) that has been going on for years. Government funded science, he stated, is not about the search for truth, but rather accepting consensus conformity. The mainstream scientific community, he added, pretends that the aerial spraying is not happening. The tiny particulates, which can get into people's lungs, have been measured in rainwater samples and not only include aluminum, barium, and strontium, but chromium and arsenic, as well, he detailed. He suspects that fly ash (the toxic waste of burning coal) is an ingredient of the aerial spray.

The purpose of the spray, he said, is to decrease rainfall, and keep heat from leaving the Earth. In other words, the aerial spraying is actually causing global warming and climate chaos, he asserted, and the UN is behind the program 100%. The United Nations wants to control sovereign countries' ability to utilize fuel, and along with other multinational groups, are seeking a one-world government. So, the spraying program is one way to create havoc in America, disrupting the environment (such as the recent fires in California) and citizens' health, he added. Herndon believes that the chemtrail program is so widespread that commercial jets could be used to unleash the particulates into the atmosphere without the airlines even being aware of it.

Ongoing Coal-Fly-Ash Toxic Chemical Geoengineeringing

Since at least 1958 the military has engaged in spraying particles into the air presumably to study weather modification. These activities were sporadic in time and location. But about 2010, during the Obama Administration, the aerial spraying of particulates became a near-daily activity across North America, the European Union, the British Commonwealth, and other countries including China, Egypt, India, Russia and perhaps others. This was a covert activity with denial and disinformation seemingly coordinated at all levels of government. No information was made available on the particle compositions sprayed into the air we all breathe, and no information on potentially adverse health risks. Following are statements/questions with links to answers:

J. Marvin Herndon, PhD and Mark Whiteside, MD, MPH to date are the only scientists to publish in the peer-reviewed scientific literature on the compositions and public health risks of the aerial spraying. To view their publications, click here.

Concerted efforts to deceive the medical community and citizens of the public health risks of the aerial spraying by lying, coercing, and pressuring editors and journal personnel to retract peer-reviewed and published public health scientific articles (click here).

How can a non-scientist understand the aerial spraying and its consequences, particularly on health? One way is to listen to and view the scientifically-correct music videos whose lyrics were written by J. Marvin Herndon. (click here)

What are they spraying into the air we breathe? Forensic scientific investigations are consistent with coal fly ash the toxic waste product of buring coal being the main substance sprayed into the air we breathe (click here).

How do particles sprayed into the air affect the weather?

Persistent aerial spraying of particulate matter into the regions where clouds form

(1) inhibits rainfall to the point of massive downpours, the so-called "drought or deluge" effect,
(2) heats the atmosphere,
(3) retards heat loss from the Earth, and
(4) upon falling to earth, absorbs sunlight.

In short, the aerial spraying destroys the natural weather cycle, contaminates Earth’s biosphere, and causes global warming — consequences falsely blamed on fossil fuel burning.

How does the aerial spraying endanger human health?

The adverse public health effects of aerosolized particulate matter can be inferred from pollution studies of particulates 2.5 mm and smaller. Exposure to such particles has been shown to be associated with increased hospital admissions, morbidity and premature mortality, risk for cardiovascular disease and lung cancer, other lung diseases including asthma, diabetes, risk for stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, reduced renal function in older men, low birth weight, reduced male fertility and decreased cognitive ability in older women. Adverse health effects of aerosolized coal fly ash (CFA) include

(1) neurological disorders, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease,
(2) lung cancer and respiratory disorders, and
(3) numerous other disorders resulting from the plethora of toxic elements in this material, including arsenic, mercury, and radioactive elements. The most at risk are the young, the old, and those with compromised respiratory and immune systems.
