Says government is not considering radical terraforming, yet programs have been ongoing for years
Friday, April 10, 2009
President Obama’s chief scientific adviser is back pedaling over comments he made in an interview regarding planetary geo-engineering.
As we reported earlier this week, John Holdren told Associated Press that the Obama administration has held discussions regarding the possibility of artificially altering the earth’s climate, with the justification of countering global warming.
According to the report, Holdren discussed methods of geo-engineering such as shooting pollution particles into the upper atmosphere to reflect the sun’s rays and other radical terraforming programs such as creating an “artificial volcano”.
“It’s got to be looked at,” Holdren was quoted as saying, “We don’t have the luxury of taking any approach off the table.” The AP also reported that Holdren said he has raised the concept in administration discussions.
However, since both the mainstream and alternative media picked up on Holdren’s comments and sent them viral, the former director of Harvard University’s Science, Technology and Public Policy Program has backtracked, saying that his comments were exaggerated and that the Obama administration IS NOT considering geo-engineering.
The New York Times reports  that Holdren responded via email after the AP story was published:
“I said that the approaches that have been surfaced so far seem problematic in terms of both efficacy and side effects, but we have to look at the possibilities and understand them because if we get desperate enough it will be considered. I also made clear that this was my personal view, not Administration policy.
Asked whether I had mentioned geo-engineering in any White House discussions, though, I said that I had. This is NOT the same thing as saying the White House is giving serious consideration to geo-engineering – which it isn’t – and I am disappointed that the headline and the text of the article suggest otherwise.”

Perhaps Holdren, or his higher ups have become concerned at the level of media exposure that has been generated by his comments.
After all, such exposure could lead to further investigation of secret climate engineering programs that are already being conducted  by government-affiliated universities, government agencies, and on a mass scale through chemtrail spraying.
As we reported today, the coverage generated by Holdren has given fresh impetus  to concerns regarding the aerosolized-chemical spraying that is undoubtedly being carried out worldwide.
Of course, just like the “New World Order”, though this has been announced in hundreds of mainstream publications and by leading government figures, it remains a “conspiracy theory “.
