Human-Caused Climate Change? Possible Lessons from Weather Modification Operations During the Vietnam War

Robert W. Endlich

On 20 March 2021, I presented “Human-Caused Climate Change? Possible Lessons from Weather Modification Operations During the Vietnam War;” graphics are posted on the web site at this link.

The presentation delved into these subject areas: a personal timeline, geography of Southeast Asia, A History, from of the loss of French Indochina to the disclosure and declassification of US weather modification efforts, climatology and the monsoons, cloud physics and cloud seeding, cloud seeding history—mostly from newspapers, sensational stories and wild speculation, and serious research especially that led by the late Dr. Joanne Simpson.

[Whenever the author mentions SECRET and/or TOP SECRET missions, activities, or code words, he is referring to the classification at that time.  Everything in this post has since been declassified.  Ed]

I spoke on weather modification efforts by the military in Southeast Asia: Operation Popeye, 1966, Operation Compatriot/Intermediary, 1967-72, my 1969 in-flight observations over the Ho Chi Minh Trail, disclosure of the project, US Senate hearings, and declassification of this formerly TOP SECRET effort.

In doing my research, several unresolved items resulted in puzzlement for me including the now declassified early 1967 State Department memo which recommended pursuing cloud seeding, internet-available literature which is all over the place on details, and a popular, but seriously in error, post in Gizmodo.

My presentation graphics contain the above subject areas; those interested in my references and my thoughts can see both in the graphics; both are evident. Continue reading “Human-Caused Climate Change? Possible Lessons from Weather Modification Operations During the Vietnam War”

Blatant Examples: Massive Vote Fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election

Robert W. Endlich
Introduction:

While I was watching the returns on Election Night, 3 November 2020, and into the early morning hours of 4 November, I saw extremely suspicious activity—vote counting was suspended in the swing states; the suspensions of vote counting were reported on live TV as they happened.

One report from Fulton County (Atlanta Metro), Georgia, said they suspended counting because of a “massive water leak.”

How convenient.

Later reports were that a single urinal had overflowed in the morning, was promptly fixed, and the area was summarily cleaned up.

But we could see on live TV that counting was halted also in Michigan, Continue reading “Blatant Examples: Massive Vote Fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election”

An analysis of the 17 April 2018 NMSU Climate “Education” presentation by Dr David Dubois

Robert W. Endlich

… a patchwork of stories where propaganda and misinformation are presented as fact.

IS EMOTION THE BASIS OF EDUCATION?

For the lead presentation of a series which was purported to bring “Climate Education” to interested members of the Las Cruces, NM and New Mexico State University communities, Dave DuBois starts off with an emotional appeal to the audience, not a fact-based introduction. The link to his presentation is at https://sustainability.nmsu.edu/nmsuccess/ scroll to the bottom.

His subsequent sequence is filled with a patchwork of stories where propaganda and misinformation are presented as fact. Sometimes Dr. DuBois mentions tools of the trade in understanding climate history, including ice core proxies, sedimentation records, and natural climate cycles, including El Nino-Southern Oscillation and the Pacific Continue reading “An analysis of the 17 April 2018 NMSU Climate “Education” presentation by Dr David Dubois”

Wind turbines generate mountains of waste

Blade waste, other factors prove wind is no more green than solar

Duggan Flanakin

Environmentalists and wind energy opportunists (entrepreneurs who take advantage of overly generous tax credits and multiple other subsidies) want

you to believe wind energy is as pure “green” as newly driven snow is white, Eand as cheap as Taco Bell.

They never tell you about the costs – or the environmental destruction – that they have hidden from you for decades.  But neither do most governments, news media or social media.

[This article is also being published by CFACT and is available here.  Ed.]

Ars Technica science editor John Timmer says wind hardware prices are dropping, even as new turbine designs are increasing the typical power generated by each turbine. Timmer did admit that “wind is even cheaper at Continue reading “Wind turbines generate mountains of waste”

Media hypes new 130°F Death Valley Temperature – but it’s still short of the 134°F all-time record

Anthony Watts

On Sunday, August 16th the National Weather Service in Las Vegas, Nevada sent out a Tweet highlighting a new maximum daily temperature of 130°F in Death Valley:

Predictably, the media jumped on this number with the Los Angeles Times saying “…possibly the highest mercury reading on Earth since 1913“. Even the Continue reading “Media hypes new 130°F Death Valley Temperature – but it’s still short of the 134°F all-time record”
