AUSTIN, Texas – Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller issued a dire warning Tuesday about the statewide impact of the winter storm on agriculture and the food supply chain.

Commissioner Miller says farmers and ranchers across the state are seeing devastating effects from the cold weather on livestock, feed and agriculture products.

Scientists Address Link Between Geoengineering and Wildfires

Worldwide Dispersal of Aerosolized Particulates Increases Global Warming, Endangers Human & Planetary Health

Two scientists have published their findings on the relationship between geoengineering and the intensity of California wildfires in the peer-reviewed research outlet, Journal of Geography, Environment and Earth Science.

“The near-daily, near-global jet-spraying of particulate matter, evidenced as mainly [coal fly ash], into the troposphere has major consequences on climate,” authors J. Marvin Herndon of Transdyne Corporation and Mark Whiteside of Florida Department of Health write in the report. “One consequence of aerosolised CFA is to exacerbate global warming, which evidence indicates is mainly caused by pollution, especially particulate pollution, not by greenhouse gases.”

The article also features copious photographic evidence of what the authors assert is geoengineering, including “[e]xamples of deliberate jet-sprayed particulate pollution … on days devoid of natural clouds.”

Introduction

The California, USA wildfires (Fig. 1) are symptomatic of far more serious anthropogenic phenomena adversely affecting flora and fauna, including humans, worldwide. The California

(USA) wildfires are thus a microcosm of wildfires worldwide. Climate change, specifically increased temperatures and increased water vapour pressure deficits, is considered a key factor driving California, regional and global wildfire increases. We agree with the assertion that “human-caused climate change is now a key driver of forest fire activity in the Western United States,” but the explanation proffered is grossly insufficient. Although wildfires are to some extent natural occurrences, the undisclosed, unnatural manipulations of our planet’s atmosphere and hydrosphere that we describe in this review heat the atmosphere, exacerbate combustibility, and wreak anthropogenic environmental havoc of unprecedented magnitude.

On December 12, 2017, the U. S. Forest Service reported that an additional 27 million trees, mostly conifers, died throughout California since November 2016, bringing the total number of trees that have died to a historic record of 129 million on 8.9 million acres. Forest die-offs, with concomitant wildfires, are not confined to California, but are occurring globally. The usual explanations given for the die-offs are combinations of global warming, drought, and bark beetles. These explanations, however, are just consequences of a more fundamental human-caused attack on Earth’s natural processes that has not been reported by academic scientists, but is the subject of this review.

The unprecedented numbers of tree deaths, while providing ready fuel for wildfires, is just one adverse consequence of the unnatural environmental manipulations that exacerbate the potential for major destructive wildfires whose occurrences are increasing in California and, indeed, globally. Here we review the consequences of those unnatural and unreported climate manipulations with particular emphasis on their adverse implications to wildfires and to human health.
