Holdren tells MIT audience that radical measures are still on the table, despite public reversal

One of President Obama’s top science advisors spoke again of the need to consider “geoengineering” the planet in the name of preventing global warming at a speech at MIT yesterday, despite publicly reversing his initial support of such measures last week.
John Holdren, the director of the president’s Office of Science and Technology Policy, told an audience at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology on Monday that, “Large-scale geoengineering projects designed to cool the Earth could conceivably be done,” reports CNet News.
It seems that this is another case of someone in the Obama administration telling the public one thing and elitist insiders another.
Last week, Holdren said that talks had already taken place concerning the possibility of “geoengineering” the environment by “shooting pollution particles into the upper atmosphere to reflect the sun’s rays”.

“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, after 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 backtracked, saying that his comments were exaggerated and that the Obama administration IS NOT considering geo-engineering.
Whatever Holdren’s personal view on geoengineering, as we reported last week, such programs are already being conducted by government-affiliated universities, government agencies, and on a mass scale through chemtrail spraying.
In addition, the Obama administration’s interest in exploring “geo-engineering” mirrors recent publications penned by the elite Council On Foreign Relations.
