U.S. Scientists Launch World's Biggest Solar Geoengineering Study

Poisoning of the planet from the sky in the name of geoengineering... Of course, this has already been taking place for a number of years and may explain the rise in respiratory and other diseases, the massive die-offs of fish, birds, bees... Has anyone asked us, the public, for permission to conduct such a deadly experiment?  

Future tests could involve seeding the sky with aluminium oxide.

Research programme will send aerosol injections into the earth’s upper atmosphere to study the risks and benefits of a future solar tech-fix for climate change

US scientists are set to send aerosol injections 20km up into the earth’s stratosphere in the world’s biggest solar geoengineering programme to date, to study the potential of a future tech-fix for global warming.

The $20m (£16m) Harvard University project will launch within weeks and aims to establish whether the technology can safely simulate the atmospheric cooling effects of a volcanic eruption, if a last ditch bid to halt climate change is one day needed.

Digital Transformation - Including Wearables, IoT - a $20 Trillion Market

"IoT apps and devices, for instance, are projected to soar to $1.3 billion by 2020 with the fastest growth industries being healthcare, insurance, consumer and retail."

DX: Hospital executives and IT pros might as well get used to those initials, which analyst house IDC and some others use to refer to "digital transformation."

While DX is not an entirely new concept, IDC just projected that the overall DX market will blast off toward $20 trillion in short order, representing more than 20 percent of GDP. Global GDP, that is.

IoT and the World's First Trillionaire

Virtually all of the billionaires on Forbes list have one thing in common.

One way or another they are involved with the recent electronic phenomenon called METME (Maximum Efficient Transfer of Electronic Energy) and better known as the IoT (Internet of Things). The IoT has been identified as “the greatest commercial event in world history”. It is dramatically changing world commerce – and also politics. For example, all Thailand banks are reducing staff and facilities by 30 to 35 per cent as new IoT procedures take over. The same shifts can be seen in virtually all other fields, from automotives to food to construction, etc.

Bill Gates ($85.6 billion) is currently the world’s wealthiest person. But not for long! Some new guys are in town.

Major U.S. City Abandons IoT Project Citing 'Other Priorities'

Jacksonville, Florida's most populous city has opted to
ditch a pilot smart lighting installation by GE.
"It is not clear exactly what discouraged Jacksonville from proceeding and the spokesperson declined to elaborate when asked if costs or operability stymied the project.  It is possible that Jacksonville authorities were concerned with things like data protection, data ownership, privacy, and security issues associated with IoT projects, which are sometimes prone to hacking."

Major US city abandons IoT project citing ‘other priorities’

A major US city has dropped an Internet of Things based lighting system, saying that they have more important things to work on.

Jacksonville, Florida’s most populous city, opted to ditch a pilot installation by GE that was set to involve equipping some of its street lights with chips and sensors that would eventually do everything from improving lighting controls and efficiency to detecting free parking spaces for motorists.

The lights would also be able to alert the public about hurricanes, weather events that are common in Florida.

Pocket Dialling to Danger

MARKETPLACE: Pocket dialling to danger

Should you carry your phone in your pocket? The answer is right there, inside your phone, in a government-mandated message that says you should hold your phone 5mm to 15mm away from your body to limit exposure to radiation. It varies from phone to phone.

But a survey from CBC's Marketplace reveals that most people have never seen the message and don't use their phones that way.

So if you slip your phone in your pocket, or tuck it into your bra, you're not following the guidelines. And here's the problem: The government test cellphone makers use to assess the safety of their products are based on the assumption that you are.

Wi-Fi in Maryland Schools May Put Your Kid at Risk for Cancer

Laptops should never be used on one's lap, especially
when connected to Wi-Fi.
Wifi in Md. schools may put your kid at risk for cancer

Thank you, Gov. Larry Hogan, for appointing thoughtful, brave medical experts to Maryland's Children's Environmental Health and Protection Advisory Council (CEHPAC). Your next challenge is to get the Maryland school superintendents to heed the council's well-founded advice: reduce and restrict children's wireless radiation (wifi). With distinguished experts in child health, neurodevelopment and pediatrics, the council draws on the well-established public health principle that stopping harm now is always better and cheaper than trying to fix damage later.

Monsanto Faces Hundreds of New Cancer Lawsuits as Debate Over Glyphosate Rages On

"Monsanto's newly released documents expose a culture corrupt enough to shock the company's most jaded critics," Kennedy said in a statement. "Those papers show sociopathic company officials ghostwriting scientific studies to conceal Roundup's risks from Monsanto's regulators and customers, including food consumers, farmers and the public."

5G and IoT: Total Technological Control Grid Being Rolled Out Fast

5G and IoT: Total Technological Control Grid Being Rolled Out Fast
by Makia Freeman, Contributor, Waking Times, 23 March 2017

5G is being rolled out fast right now, with Verizon testing it out in 11 US cities and ATT also conducting experiments. For those who don’t know, 5G is the latest wireless system that telecommunications companies are trying to implement to service wireless communication. It’s designed to allow faster downloads of more data. It uses the 28, 37 and 39 GHz bands, also known as millimetre wave (mmW) spectrum. 5G, which comes from the term 5th generation, is designed to work in conjunction with what former CIA head David Petraeus called the Internet of Things or IoT. The agenda is to hook every single material thing on the planet, as well as humans themselves, onto a vast planet-wide web where everything and everyone become nodes on the network – connected by microchips which are nano-size and can be inhaled (like smart dust).

Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Study Subjects Needed By University Research Team

We have checked with the person responsible for this study, Dr. Pamela Gibson, who says people from any country may participate.

Electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) or idiopathy environmental intolerance (IEI) results from exposure to electromagnetic waves (EMF/RF/ELF) due to the overwhelming explosion of ‘smart’ technology appliances and gadgets which use either microwaves or some other wave on the electromagnetic spectrum.

EHS Research Study

James Madison University Environmental Sensitivities Research Team is conducting research surveys in chemical and/or electrical sensitivities. Below is the request for participants to reply and participate, which will be extremely helpful in establishing data to document what’s called non-thermal radiation adverse health effects from EMF/RF/ELF.

Japan court shocks nuclear industry with liability ruling
by Shaun Burnie, atimes.com, 20 March 2017

Court sends a shockwave through Japan's nuclear establishment with ruling on Fukushima accident.

Japan’s atomic power establishment is in shock following the court ruling on Friday that found the state and the operator of the Fukushima nuclear plant liable for failing to take preventive measures against the tsunami that crippled the facility.

The reason for the shock is the ruling has wide-ranging implications for Japan’s entire nuclear power industry and the efforts to restart reactors throughout the country.
