Report from Iron Mountain; Using fear to make people subservient to government.

***************

Freedom Force International

This is taken from Chapter 24 of The Creature from Jekyll Island

(When added to The Freedom Manifesto, this material should be expanded to include the concept of deliberate waste. With that included, it will make an excellent chapter.)

The substance of these stratagems [for the weakening of the United States so it can be more easily merged into a global government based on the model of collectivism] can be traced to a think-tank study released in 1966 called the Report from Iron Mountain. Although the origin of the report is highly debated, the document itself hints that it was commissioned by the Department of Defense under Defense Secretary, Robert McNamara and was produced by the Hudson Institute located at the base of Iron Mountain in Croton-on-Hudson, New York. The Hudson Institute was founded and directed by Herman Kahn, formerly of the Rand Corporation. Both McNamara and Kahn were members of the CFR.

The self-proclaimed purpose of the study was to explore various ways to “stabilize society.” Praiseworthy as that may sound, a reading of the Report soon reveals that the word society is used synonymously with the word government. Furthermore, the word stabilize is used as meaning to preserve and to perpetuate. It is clear from the start that the nature of the study was to analyze the different ways a government can perpetuate itself in power, ways to control its citizens and prevent them from rebelling. It was stated at the beginning of the Report that morality was not an issue. The study did not address questions of right or wrong; nor did it deal with such concepts as freedom or human rights. Ideology was not an issue, nor patriotism, nor religious precepts. Its sole concern was how to perpetuate the existing government. The Report said: 

Previous studies have taken the desirability of peace, the importance of human life, the superiority of democratic institutions, the greatest “good” for the greatest number, the “dignity” of the individual, the desirability of maximum health and longevity, and other such wishful premises as axiomatic values necessary for the justification of a study of peace issues. We have not found them so. We have attempted to apply the standards of physical science to our thinking, the principal characteristic of which is not quantification, as is popularly believed, but that, in Whitehead’s words, “…it ignores all judgments of value; for instance, all esthetic and moral judgments.” (1)

The major conclusion of the report was that, in the past, war has been the only reliable means to achieve that goal. It contends that only during times of war or the threat of war are the masses compliant enough to carry the yoke of government without complaint. Fear of conquest and pillage by an enemy can make almost any burden seem acceptable by comparison. War can be used to arouse human passion and patriotic feelings of loyalty to the nation’s leaders. No amount of sacrifice in the name of victory will be rejected. Resistance is viewed as treason. But, in times of peace, people become resentful of high taxes, shortages, and bureaucratic intervention. When they become disrespectful of their leaders, they become dangerous. No government has long survived without enemies and armed conflict. War, therefore, has been an indispensable condition for “stabilizing society.” These are the report’s exact words:

The war system not only has been essential to the existence of nations as independent political entities, but has been equally indispensable to their stable political structure. Without it, no government has ever been able to obtain acquiescence in its “legitimacy,” or right to rule its society. The possibility of war provides the sense of external necessity without which no government can long remain in power. The historical record reveals one instance after another where the failure of a regime to maintain the credibility of a war threat led to its dissolution, by the forces of private interest, of reactions to social injustice, or of other disintegrative elements. The organization of society for the possibility of war is its principal political stabilizer…. It has enabled societies to maintain necessary class distinctions, and it has insured the subordination of the citizens to the state by virtue of the residual war powers inherent in the concept of nationhood. (2)

A NEW DEFINITION OF PEACE

The report then explains that we are approaching a point in history where the old formulas may no longer work. Why? Because it may now be possible to create a world government in which all nations will be disarmed and disciplined by a world army, a condition which will be called peace. The report says: “The word peace, as we have used it in the following pages, … implies total and general disarmament.” (3)

Under that scenario, independent nations will no longer exist and governments will not have the capability to wage war. There could be military action by the world army against renegade political subdivisions, but these would be called peace-keeping operations, and soldiers would be called peace keepers. No matter how much property is destroyed or how much blood is spilled, the bullets will be “peaceful” bullets and the bombs – even atomic bombs, if necessary – will be “peaceful” bombs.

The report then raises the question of whether there can ever be a suitable substitute for war. What else could the regional governments use – and what could the world government itself use – to legitimize and perpetuate itself? To provide an answer to that question was the stated purpose of the study.

The Report from Iron Mountain concludes that there can be no substitute for war unless it possesses three properties. It must (1) be economically wasteful, (2) represent a credible threat of great magnitude, and (3) provide a logical excuse for compulsory service to the government.

A SOPHISTICATED FORM OF SLAVERY

On the subject of compulsory service, the Report explains that one of the advantages of standing armies is that they provide a place for the government to put antisocial and dissident elements of society. In the absence of war, these forced-labor battalions would be told they are fighting poverty or cleaning up the planet or bolstering the economy or serving the common good in some other fashion. Every teenager would be required to serve – especially during those years in which young people are most rebellious against authority. Older people, too, would be drafted as a means of working off tax payments and fines. Dissidents would face heavy fines for “hate crimes” and politically incorrect attitudes so, eventually, they would all be in the forced-labor battalions. The Report says:

We will examine … the time-honored use of military institutions to provide anti-social elements with an acceptable role in the social structure. … The current euphemistic clichés – “juvenile delinquency” and “alienation” – have had their counterparts in every age. In earlier days these conditions were dealt with directly by the military without the complications of due process, usually through press gangs or outright enslavement. …

Most proposals that address themselves, explicitly or otherwise, to the postwar problem of controlling the socially alienated turn to some variant of the Peace Corps or the so-called Job Corps for a solution. The socially disaffected, the economically unprepared, the psychologically uncomfortable, the hard-core “delinquents,” the incorrigible “subversives,” and the rest of the unemployable are seen as somehow transformed by the disciplines of a service modeled on military precedent into more or less dedicated social service workers. …

Another possible surrogate for the control of potential enemies of society is the reintroduction, in some form consistent with modern technology and political processes, of slavery. … It is entirely possible that the development of a sophisticated form of slavery may be an absolute prerequisite for socialcontrol in a world at peace. As a practical matter, conversion of the code of military discipline to a euphemized form of enslavement would entail surprisingly little revision; the logical first step would be the adoption of some form of “universal” military service. (4)

BLOOD GAMES

The Report considered ways in which the public could be preoccupied with non-important activities so that it would not have time to participate in political debate or resistance. Recreation, trivial game shows, pornography, and situation comedies could play an important role, but blood games were considered to be the most promising of all the options. Blood games are competitive events between individuals or teams that are sufficiently violent in nature to enable the spectators to vicariously work off their frustrations. As a minimum, these events must evoke a passionate team loyalty on the part of the fans and must include the expectation of pain and injury on the part of the players. Even better for their purpose is the spilling of blood and the possibility of death. The common man has a morbid fascination for violence and blood. Crowds gather to chant “Jump! Jump!” at the suicidal figure on a hotel roof. Cars slow to a near stop on the highway to gawk at broken bodies next to a collision.

A schoolyard fight instantly draws a circle of spectators. Boxing matches and football games and hockey games and automobile races are telecast daily, attracting millions of cheering fans who give rapt attention to each moment of danger, each angry blow to the face, each broken bone, each knockout, each carrying away of the unconscious or possibly dying contestant. In this fashion, their anger at “society” is defused and focused, instead, on the opposing team. The emperors of Rome devised the Circuses and gladiator contests and public executions by wild beasts for precisely that purpose.

Before jumping to the conclusion that such concepts are absurd in modern times, recall that during the 1985 European soccer championship in Belgium, the spectators became so emotionally involved in the contest that a bloody riot broke out in the bleachers leaving behind 38 dead and more that 400 injured. U.S. News & World Report gives this account:

The root of the trouble: A tribal loyalty to home teams that surpasses an obsession and, say some experts, has become a substitute religion for many. The worst offenders include members of gangs such as Chelsea’s Anti-Personnel Firm, made up of ill-educated young males who find in soccer rivalry an escape from boredom.

Still, the British do not have a patent on soccer violence. On May 26, eight people were killed and more than 50 injured in Mexico City,… a 1964 stadium riot in Lima, Peru, killed more than 300 – and a hotly disputed 1969 match between El Salvador and Honduras led to a week-long shooting war between the two countries, causing hundreds of casualties.

The U.S. is criticized for the gridiron violence of its favorite sport, football, but outbursts in the bleachers are rare because loyalties are spread among many sports and national pride is not at stake. Said Thomas Tutko, professor of psychology at California’s San Jose State University: “In these other countries, it used to be their armies. Now it’s their competitive teams that stir passions.” (5)

Having considered all the ramifications of blood games, The Report from Iron Mountain concluded that they were not an adequate substitute for war. It is true that violent sports are useful distracters and do, in fact, allow an outlet for boredom and fierce group loyalty, but their effect on the nation’s psyche could not match the intensity of war hysteria. Until a better alternative could be found, world government would have to be postponed so that nations could continue to wage war.

FINDING A CREDIBLE GLOBAL THREAT

In time of war, most citizens uncomplainingly accept their low quality of life and remain fiercely loyal to their leaders. If a suitable substitute for war is to be found, then it must also elicit that same reaction. Therefore, a new enemy must be found that threatens the entire world, and the prospects of being overcome by that enemy must be just as terrifying as war itself. The Report is emphatic on that point:

Allegiance requires a cause; a cause requires an enemy. This much is obvious; the critical point is that the enemy that defines the cause must seem genuinely formidable. Roughly speaking, the presumed power of the “enemy” sufficient to warrant an individual sense of allegiance to a society must be proportionate to the size and complexity of the society. Today, of course, that power must be one of unprecedented magnitude and frightfulness. (6)

The first consideration in finding a suitable threat to serve as a global enemy was that it did not have to be real. A real one would be better, of course, but an invented one would work just as well, provided the masses could be convinced it was real. The public will more readily believe some fictions than others. Credibility would be more important than truth.

Poverty was examined as a potential global enemy but rejected as not fearful enough. Most of the world was already in poverty. Only those who had never experienced poverty would see it as a global threat. For the rest, it was simply a fact of everyday life.

An invasion by aliens from outer space was given serious consideration. The report said that experiments along those lines already may have been tried. Public reaction, however, was not sufficiently predictable, because the threat was not “credible.” Here is what the report had to say:

Credibility, in fact, lies at the heart of the problem of developing a political substitute for war. This is where the space-race proposals, in many ways so well suited as economic substitutes for war, fall short. The most ambitious and unrealistic space project cannot of itself generate a believable external menace. It has been hotly argued that such a menace would offer the “last best hope of peace,” etc., by uniting mankind against the danger of destruction by “creatures” from other planets or from outer space. Experiments have been proposed to test the credibility of an out-of-our-world invasion threat; it is possible that a few of the more difficult-to-explain “flying saucer” incidents of recent years were in fact early experiments of this kind. If so, they could hardly have been judged encouraging. (7)

This report was released in 1966 when the idea of an alien presence seemed far fetched to the average person. In the ensuing years, however, that perception has changed. A growing segment of the population now believes that intelligent life forms may exist beyond our planet and could be monitoring our own civilization. Whether that belief is right or wrong is not the issue here. The point is that a dramatic encounter with aliens shown on network television – even if it were to be entirely fabricated by high-tech computer graphics or laser shows in the sky – could be used to stampede all nations into world government supposedly to defend the Earth from invasion. On the other hand, if the aliens were perceived to have peaceful intent, an alternative scenario would be to form world government to represent a unified human species speaking with a single voice in some kind of galactic federation. Either scenario would be far more credible today than in 1966.

THE ENVIRONMENTAL-POLLUTION MODEL

The final candidate for a useful global threat was pollution of the environment. This was viewed as the most likely to succeed because it could be related to observable conditions such as smog and water pollution– in other words, it would be based partly on fact and, therefore, be credible. Predictions could be made showing end-of-earth scenarios just as horrible as atomic warfare. Accuracy in these predictions would not be important. Their purpose would be to frighten, not to inform. It might even be necessary to deliberately poison the environment to make the predictions more convincing and to focus the public mind on fighting a new enemy, more fearful than any invader from another nation – or even from outer space. The masses would more willingly accept a falling standard of living, tax increases, and bureaucratic intervention in their lives as simply “the price we must pay to save Mother Earth.” A massive battle against death and destruction from global pollution possibly could replace war as justification for social control.

Did The Report from Iron Mountain really say that? It certainly did – and much more. Here are just a few of the pertinent passages:

When it comes to postulating a credible substitute for war … the “alternate enemy” must imply a more immediate, tangible, and directly felt threat of destruction. It must justify the need for taking and paying a “blood price” in wide areas of human concern. In this respect, the possible substitute enemies noted earlier would be insufficient. One exception might be the environmental-pollution model, if the danger to society it posed was genuinely imminent. The fictive models would have to carry the weight of extraordinary conviction, underscored with a not inconsiderable actual sacrifice of life. … It may be, for instance, that gross pollution of the environment can eventually replace the possibility of mass destruction by nuclear weapons as the principal apparent threat to the survival of the species. Poisoning of the air, and of the principal sources of food and water supply, is already well advanced, and at first glance would seem promising in this respect; it constitutes a threat that can be dealt with only through social organization and political power. …

It is true that the rate of pollution could be increased selectively for this purpose. … But the pollution problem has been so widely publicized in recent years that it seems highly improbable that a program of deliberate environmental poisoning could be implemented in a politically acceptable manner.

However unlikely some of the possible alternative enemies we have mentioned may seem, we must emphasize that one must be found of credible quality and magnitude, if a transition to peace is ever to come about without social disintegration. It is more probable, in our judgment, that such a threat will have to be invented. (8)

AUTHENTICITY OF THE REPORT

The Report from Iron Mountain states that it was produced by a Special Study Group of fifteen men whose identities were to remain secret and that it was not intended to be made public. One member of the group, however, felt the Report was too important to be kept under wraps. He was not in disagreement with its conclusions. He merely believed that more people should read it. He delivered his personal copy to Leonard Lewin, a well-known author and columnist who, in turn, negotiated its publication by Dial Press. It was then reprinted by Dell Publishing.

This was during the Johnson Administration, and the President’s Special Assistant for National Security Affairs was CFR member Walt Rostow. Rostow was quick to announce that the report was a spurious work. Herman Kahn, CFR director of the Hudson Institute, said it was not authentic. The Washington Post – which was owned and run by CFR member Katharine Graham – called it “a delightful satire.” Time magazine, founded by CFR-member Henry Luce, said it was a skillful hoax.

Then, on November 26, 1967, the Report was reviewed in the book section of the Washington Post by Herschel McLandress, which was the pen name for Harvard professor John Kenneth Galbraith. Galbraith, who also had been a member of the CFR, said that he knew firsthand of the Report’s authenticity because he had been invited to participate in it. Although he was unable to be part of the official group, he was consulted from time to time and had been asked to keep the project a secret. Furthermore, while he doubted the wisdom of letting the public know about the Report, he agreed totally with its conclusions. He wrote:

As I would put my personal repute behind the authenticity of this document, so would I testify to the validity of its conclusions. My reservations relate only to the wisdom of releasing it to an obviously unconditioned public. (9)

Six weeks later, in an Associated Press dispatch from London, Galbraith went even further and jokingly admitted that he was “a member of the conspiracy.”(10)

That, however, did not settle the issue. The following day, Galbraith backed off. When asked about his “conspiracy” statement, he replied: “For the first time since Charles II The Times has been guilty of a misquotation. … Nothing shakes my conviction that it was written by either Dean Rusk or Mrs. Clare Booth Luce.” (11)

The reporter who conducted the original interview was embarrassed by the allegation and did further research. Six days later, this is what he reported: Misquoting seems to be a hazard to which Professor Galbraith is prone. The latest edition of the Cambridge newspaper Varsity quotes the following (tape recorded) interchange:

Interviewer: “Are you aware of the identity of the author of Report from Iron Mountain?”

Galbraith: “I was in general a member of the conspiracy but I was not the author. I have always assumed that it was the man who wrote the foreword – Mr. Lewin.” (12)

So, on at least three occasions, Galbraith publicly endorsed the authenticity of the Report but denied that he wrote it. Then who did? Was it Leonard Lewin, after all? In 1967 he said he did not. In 1972 he said that he did. Writing in The New York Times Book Review Lewin explained: “I wrote the ‘Report,” all of it. … What I intended was simply to pose the issues of war and peace in a provocative way.” (13)

But wait! A few years before that, columnist William F. Buckley told the New York Times that he was the author. That statement was undoubtedly made tongue-in-cheek, but who and what are we to believe? Was it written by Herman Kahn, John Kenneth Galbraith, Dean Rusk, Clare Booth Luce, Leonard Lewin, or William F. Buckley?

In the final analysis, it makes little difference. The important point is that The Report from Iron Mountain, whether written as a think-tank study or a political satire, explains the reality that surrounds us. Regardless of its origin, the concepts presented in it are now being implemented in almost every detail. All one has to do is hold the Report in one hand and the daily newspaper in the other to realize that every major trend in American life is conforming to the blueprint. So many things that otherwise are incomprehensible suddenly become clear: foreign aid, wasteful spending, the destruction of American industry, a job corps, gun control, a national police force, the apparent demise of Soviet power, a UN army, disarmament, a world bank, a world money, the surrender of national independence through treaties, and the ecology hysteria. The Report from Iron Mountain is an accurate summary of the plan that has already created our present. It is now shaping our future.

ENVIRONMENTALISM A SUBSTITUTE FOR WAR

It is beyond the scope of this study to prove that currently accepted predictions of environmental doom are based on exaggerated and fraudulent “scientific studies.” But such proof is easily found if one is willing to look at the raw data and the assumptions upon which the projections are based. More important, however, is the question of why end-of-world scenarios based on phony scientific studies – or no studies at all – are uncritically publicized by the CFR-controlled media; or why radical environmental groups advocating collectivist doctrine and anti-business programs are lavishly funded by CFR-dominated foundations, banks, and corporations, the very groups that would appear to have the most to lose. The Report from Iron Mountain answers those questions.

As the Report pointed out, truth is not important in these matters. It’s what people can be made to believe that counts. “Credibility” is the key, not reality. There is just enough truth in the fact of environmental pollution to make predictions of planetary doom in the year two-thousand-something seem believable. All that is required is media cooperation and repetition. The plan has apparently worked. People of the industrialized nations have been subjected to a barrage of documentaries, dramas, feature films, ballads, poems, bumper stickers, posters, marches, speeches, seminars, conferences, and concerts. The result has been phenomenal. Politicians are now elected to office on platforms consisting of nothing more than an expressed concern for the environment and a promise to clamp down on those nasty industries. No one questions the damage done to the economy or the nation. It makes no difference when the very planet on which we live is sick and dying. Not one in a thousand will question that underlying premise. How could it be false? Look at all the movie celebrities and rock stars who have joined the movement.

While the followers of the environmental movement are preoccupied with visions of planetary doom, let us see what the leaders are thinking. The first Earth Day was proclaimed on April 22, 1970, at a “Summit” meeting in Rio de Janeiro, attended by environmentalists and politicians from all over the world. A publication widely circulated at that meeting was entitled the Environmental Handbook. The main theme of the book was summarized by a quotation from Princeton Professor Richard A. Falk, a member of the CFR. Falk wrote that there are four interconnected threats to the planet – wars of mass destruction, overpopulation, pollution, and the depletion of resources. Then he said: “The basis of all four problems is the inadequacy of the sovereign states to manage the affairs of mankind in the twentieth century.” (14)

The Handbook continued the CFR line by asking these rhetorical questions: “Are nation-states actually feasible, now that they have power to destroy each other in a single afternoon?… What price would most people be willing to pay for a more durable kind of human organization – more taxes, giving up national flags, perhaps the sacrifice of some of our hard-won liberties?” (15)

In 1989, the CFR-owned Washington Post published an article written by CFR member George Kennan in which he said: “We must prepare instead for … an age where the great enemy is not the Soviet Union, but the rapid deterioration of our planet as a supporting structure for civilized life.” (16)

On March 27, 1990, in the CFR-controlled New York Times, CFR member Michael Oppenheimer wrote: “Global warming, ozone depletion, deforestation and overpopulation are the four horsemen of a looming 21st century apocalypse. … as the cold war recedes, the environment is becoming the No. 1 international security concern.” (17)

CFR member, Lester Brown, heads up another think tank called the Worldwatch Institute. In the Institute’s annual report, entitled State of the World 1991, Brown said that “the battle to save the planet will replace the battle over ideology as the organizing theme of the new world order.” (18)

In the official publication of the 1992 Earth Summit, we find this: “The world community now faces together greater risks to our common security through our impacts on the environment than from traditional military conflicts with one another.”

How many times does it have to be explained? The environmental movement was created by the CFR. It is a substitute for war that they hope will become the emotional and psychological foundation for world government.

HUMANITY ITSELF IS THE TARGET

The Club of Rome is a group of global planners who annually release end-of-world scenarios based on predictions of overpopulation and famine. Their membership is international, but the American roster includes such well-known CFR members as Jimmy Carter, Harlan Cleveland, Claiburne Pell, and Sol Linowitz. Their solution to overpopulation? A world government to control birth rates and, if necessary, euthanasia. That is a gentle word for the deliberate killing of the old, the weak, and of course the uncooperative. Following the same reasoning advanced at Iron Mountain, the Club of Rome has concluded that fear of environmental disaster could be used as a substitute enemy for the purpose of unifying the masses behind its program. In its 1991 book entitled The First Global Revolution, we find this:

In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. … All these dangers are caused by human intervention. … The real enemy, then, is humanity itself. (19)

Collectivist theoreticians have always been fascinated by the possibility of controlling population growth. It excites their imaginations because it is the ultimate bureaucratic plan. If the real enemy is humanity itself, as the Club of Rome says, then humanity itself must become the target. Fabian Socialist Bertrand Russell expressed it thus:

I do not pretend that birth control is the only way in which population can be kept from increasing. … War, as I remarked a moment ago, has hitherto been disappointing in this respect, but perhaps bacteriological war may prove more effective. If a Black Death could be spread throughout the world once in every generation, survivors could procreate freely without making the world too full. …

A scientific world society cannot be stable unless there is world government. … It will be necessary to find ways of preventing an increase in world population. If this is to be done otherwise than by wars, pestilences and famines, it will demand a powerful international authority. This authority should deal out the world’s food to the various nations in proportion to their population at the time of the establishments of the authority. If any nation subsequently increased its population, it should not on that account receive any more food. The motive for not increasing population would therefore be very compelling. (21)

Very compelling, indeed. These quiet-spoken collectivists are not kidding around. For example, one of the most visible “environmentalists” and advocate of population control was Jacques Cousteau. Interviewed by the United Nations UNESCO Courier in November of 1991, Cousteau spelled it out. He said:

What should we do to eliminate suffering and disease? It is a wonderful idea but perhaps not altogether a beneficial one in the long run. If we try to implement it we may jeopardize the future of our species. It’s terrible to have to say this. World population must be stabilized, and to do that we must eliminate 350,000 people per day. This is so horrible to contemplate that we shouldn’t even say it, but it is just as bad not to say it. (22)

GORBACHEV BECOMES AN ECOLOGY WARRIOR

We can now understand how Mikhail Gorbachev, formerly the leader of one of the most repressive governments the world has known, became head of a new organization called the International Green Cross, which supposedly is dedicated to environmental issues. Gorbachev has never denounced collectivism, only the label of a particular brand of collectivism called Communism. His real interest is not ecology but world government with himself assured a major position in the collectivist power structure. In a public appearance in Fulton, Missouri, he praised the Club of Rome, of which he is a member, for its position on population control. Then he said:

One of the worst of the new dangers is ecological. … Today, global climatic shifts; the greenhouse effect; the “ozone hole”; acid rain; contamination of the atmosphere, soil and water by industrial and household waste; the destruction of the forests; etc. all threaten the stability of the planet. (23)

Gorbachev proclaimed that global government was the answer to these threats and that the use of government force was essential. He said: “I believe that the new world order will not be fully realized unless the United Nations and its Security Council create structures … authorized to impose sanctions and make use of other measures of compulsion.” (24)

Here is an arch criminal who fought his way up through the ranks of the Soviet Communist Party, became the protégé of Yuri Andropov, head of the dreaded KGB, was a member of the USSR’s ruling Politburo throughout the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, and who was selected by the Politburo in 1985 as the supreme leader of world Communism. All of this was during one of the Soviet’s most dismal periods of human-rights violations and subversive activities against the free world. Furthermore, he ruled over a nation with one of the worst possible records of environmental destruction. At no time while he was in power did he ever say or do anything to show concern over planet Earth.

All that is now forgotten. Gorbachev has been transformed by the CFR-dominated media into an ecology warrior. He is calling for world government and telling us that such a government will use environmental issues as justification for sanctions and other “measures of compulsion.” We cannot say that we were not warned.

U.S. BRANDED AS ECOLOGICAL AGGRESSOR

The use of compulsion is an important point in these plans. People in the industrialized nations are not expected to cooperate in their own demise. They will have to be forced. They will not like it when their food is taken for global distribution. They will not approve when they are taxed by a world authority to finance foreign political projects. They will not voluntarily give up their cars or resettle into smaller houses or communal barracks to satisfy the resource-allocation quotas of a UN agency. Club-of-Rome member Maurice Strong states the problem:

In effect, the United States is committing environmental aggression against the rest of the world. … At the military level, the United States is the custodian. At the environmental level, the United States is clearly the greatest risk. … One of the worst problems in the United States is energy prices – they’re too low. …

It is clear that current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class … involving high meat intake, consumption of large amounts of frozen and `convenience’ foods, ownership of motor-vehicles, numerous electric household appliances, home and work-place air-conditioning … expansive suburban housing … are not sustainable. (25)

Mr. Strong’s remarks were enthusiastically received by world environmental leaders, but they prompted this angry editorial response in the Arizona Republic:

Translated from eco-speak, this means two things: (1) a reduction in the standard of living in Western nations through massive new taxes and regulations, and (2) a wholesale transfer of wealth from industrialized to under-developed countries. The dubious premise here is that if the U.S. economy could be reduced to, say, the size of Malaysia’s, the world would be a better place. … Most Americans probably would balk at the idea of the U.N. banning automobiles in the U.S. (26)

Who is this Maurice Strong who sees the United States as the environmental aggressor against the world? Does he live in poverty? Does he come from a backward country that is resentful of American prosperity? Does he himself live in modest circumstances, avoiding consumption in order to preserve our natural resources? None of the above. He is one of the wealthiest men in the world. He lives and travels in great comfort. He is a lavish entertainer. In addition to having great personal wealth derived from the oil industry in Canada – which he helped nationalize – Maurice Strong was the Secretary-General of the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio; head of the 1972 UN Conference on Human Environment in Stockholm; the first Secretary-General of the UN Environment Program; president of the World Federation of United Nations; co-chairman of the World Economic Forum; member of the Club of Rome; trustee of the Aspen Institute; and a director of the World Future Society. That is probably more than you wanted to know about this man, but it is necessary in order to appreciate the importance of what follows.

A PLOT FOR ECONOMIC CRISIS

Maurice Strong believes – or says that he believes – the world’s ecosystems can be preserved only if the affluent nations of the world can be disciplined into lowering their standard of living. Production and consumption must be curtailed. To bring that about, those nations must submit to rationing, taxation, and political domination by world government. They will probably not do that voluntarily, he says, so they will have to be forced. To accomplish that, it will be necessary to engineer a global monetary crisis which will destroy their economic systems. Then they will have no choice but to accept assistance and control from the UN.

This strategy was revealed in the May, 1990, issue of West magazine, published in Canada. In an article entitled “The Wizard of Baca Grande,” journalist Daniel Wood described his week-long experience at Strong’s private ranch in southern Colorado. This ranch has been visited by such CFR notables as David Rockefeller, Secretary-of-State Henry Kissinger, founder of the World Bank Robert McNamara, and the presidents of such organizations as IBM, Pan Am, and Harvard.

During Wood’s stay at the ranch, the tycoon talked freely about environmentalism and politics. To express his own world view, he said he was planning to write a novel about a group of world leaders who decided to save the planet. As the plot unfolded, it became obvious that it was based on real people and real events. Wood continues the story:

Each year, he explains as background to the telling of the novel’s plot, the World Economic Forum convenes in Davos, Switzerland. Over a thousand CEOs, prime ministers, finance ministers, and leading academics gather in February to attend meetings and set economic agendas for the year ahead. With this as a setting, he then says: “What if a small group of these world leaders were to conclude that the principal risk to the earth comes from the actions of the rich countries? And if the world is to survive, those rich countries would have to sign an agreement reducing their impact on the environment. Will they do it? … The group’s conclusion is `no.’ the rich countries won’t do it. They won’t change. So, in order to save the planet, the group decides: Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about? …

This group of world leaders,” he continues, “form a secret society to bring about an economic collapse. It’s February. They’re all at Davos. These aren’t terrorists. They’re world leaders. They have positioned themselves in the world’s commodity and stock markets. They’ve engineered, using their access to stock exchanges and computers and gold supplies, a panic. Then, they prevent the world’s stock markets from closing. They jam the gears. They hire mercenaries who hold the rest of the world leaders at Davos as hostages. The markets can’t close. The rich countries…” And Strong makes a slight motion with his fingers as if he were flicking a cigarette butt out the window.

I sit there spellbound. This is not any storyteller talking, this is Maurice Strong. He knows these world leaders. He is, in fact, co-chairman of the Council of the World Economic Forum. He sits at the fulcrum of power. He is in a position to do it.“I probably shouldn’t be saying things like this,” he says. (27)

Maurice Strong’s fanciful plot probably shouldn’t be taken too seriously, at least in terms of a literal reading of future events. It is unlikely they will unfold in exactly that manner – although it is not impossible. For one thing, it would not be necessary to hold the leaders of the industrialized nations at gun point. They would be the ones engineering this plot. Leaders from Third-World countries do not have the means to cause a global crisis. That would have to come from the money centers in New York, London, or Tokyo. Furthermore, the masterminds behind this thrust for global government have always resided in the industrialized nations. They have come from the ranks of the CFR in America and from other branches of the International Roundtable in England, France, Belgium, Canada, Japan, and elsewhere. They are the ideological descendants of Cecil Rhodes and they are fulfilling his dream.

It is not important whether or not Maurice Strong’s plot for global economic collapse is to be taken literally. What is important is that men like him are thinking along those lines. As Wood pointed out, they are in a position to do it. Or something like it. If it is not this scenario, they will consider another one with similar consequences. If history has proven anything, it is that men with financial and political power are quite capable of heinous plots against their fellow men. They have launched wars, caused depressions, and created famines to suit their personal agendas. We have little reason to believe that the world leaders of today are more saintly than their predecessors.

Furthermore, we must not be fooled by pretended concern for Mother Earth. The call-to-arms for saving the planet is a gigantic ruse. There is just enough truth to environmental pollution to make the show “credible,” as The Report from Iron Mountain phrased it, but the end-of-earth scenarios which drive the movement forward are bogus. The real objective in all of this is world government, the ultimate doomsday mechanism from which there can be no escape. Destruction of the economic strength of the industrialized nations is merely a necessary prerequisite for ensnaring them into the global web. The thrust of the current ecology movement is directed totally to that end.

Symptoms Resulting From Chemtrail Spraying

10 January 2011

Over the past ten years, through research and the personal accounts of many individuals, it has become readily apparent that the aluminum and barium salt mixtures, polymer fibers, toxic chemicals and biologicals sprayed in the atmosphere are the irritants that are either directly or indirectly responsible for health problems on the rise in the United States and elsewhere.

These toxic particulates are rapidly absorbed from the respiratory system and / or the gastrointestinal tract and are deposited in the lungs, muscles, and bone.
This illegal aerial spraying is producing atmospheric and ground conditions detrimental to human and animal health but favorable to the growth of harmful molds / fungus.
This overview is a partial list of health problems reported by private citizens to Chemtrail researchers.
1. Nose and lung bleeds (the latter including several reports from nursing homes of elderly dying from lung bleed outs, we believe being directly attributable to atmospheric aerosols);
2. Asthma and allergies;
3. Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) (fungus on the lungs in both infants and adults),
4. Flu, Bronchitis and Pneumonia (in epidemic proportions, with doctors commenting to their patients on the many weeks it sometimes takes to improve and the lack of effective antibiotics to treat, including reports of pets having the flu, whole families being decimated), meningitis (inflammation / infection of the brain);
5. Upper respiratory symptoms (wheezing, dry cough), including Pulmonary Distress Syndrome (PDS) (in newborns, infants and adults alike), Sudden Infant Death (SIDS), and increased nationwide reports of the sudden death of athletes (reported in the news media as having possibly been attributable directly to air particulates / pollution);
6. Deaths from black mold; black or red mold on food crops (farmers reporting pH changes of soil and water), in buildings and ventilation systems (including school buildings);
7. Arthritis-like symptoms and muscular pain (young and old alike, sometimes crippling, and in pets);
8. Gastrointestinal distress (young and old alike, and in pets);
9. Bladder and yeast infections (includes bed wetting, not just in infants but adults);
10. Extreme fatigue (young and old alike);
11. Ringing of the ears, dizziness (increasingly reported immediately preceding or after a storm or weather system);
12. Eye problems – pink eye, blurred and deteriorating vision / nervous tics after exposure to the air outdoors;
13. Dry / cracking skin and lips, rashes, sores and fungal infections, aging of the skin;
14. Mental confusion / slow thinking and / or the feeling of mentally “being in a fog” (young and old alike, increasingly reported after actually being in heavy mists and fog banks);
15. Autoimmune disorders (Lupus, Crohn’s, Addison’s Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, etc.)
Note: Some of the above symptoms / illnesses can be related to other physical / environmental factors such as dehydration.)
Aluminum Symptoms
Excessive amounts of aluminum can result in symptoms of poisoning. The symptoms include constipation, colic, loss of appetite, nausea, skin ailments, twitching of leg muscles, excessive perspiration, and loss of energy. People with aluminum poisoning should discontinue the use of aluminum cookware and the drinking of tap water. Small quantities of soluble salts of aluminum present in the blood causes slow form of poisoning characterized by motor paralysis and areas of local numbness, with fatty degeneration of kidney and liver. There are also anatomical changes in the nerve centres and symptoms of gastro intestinal inflammation.
In the last few years there has been much publicity about aluminum, as well as a tentative connection of aluminum to Alzheimer Disease. According to Dr. Terry L. Franks the clinical picture is clear that Alzheimer’s is concurrently involved with aluminum toxicity and he also believe it is the major contributing factor to Alzheimer’s. It will progressively worsen in North America in the coming year because of the pervasive use of aluminum. Aluminum has the tendency to freeze up or irritate nerve endings, producing spasm and contracture. When someone is going through aluminum detoxification can actually look like an advanced case of Alzheimers Disease.
How Aluminum Affects Health
Nervous system
In animal studies, aluminum blocks the action potential or electrical discharge of nerve cells, reducing nervous system activity. Aluminum also inhibits important enzymes in the brain (Na-K-ATPase and hexokinase). Aluminum may also inhibit uptake of important chemicals by nerve cells (dopamine, norepinephrine, and 5-hydroxytryptamine).
Behavioural Effects
Dementia resulting from kidney dialysis related to aluminum toxicity causes memory loss, loss of coordination, confusion and disorientation.
Symptoms of Aluminum Toxicity
Early symptoms of aluminum toxicity include: flatulence, headaches, colic, dryness of skin and mucous membranes, tendency for colds, burning pain in the head relieved by food, heartburn and an aversion to meat.
Later symptoms include paralytic muscular conditions, loss of memory and mental confusion. Other symtpoms may include:
Alzheimer’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, anaemia, haemolysis, leukocytosis, porphyra, colitis, dental cavities, dementia dialactica, hypo-parathyroidism, kidney dysfunction, neuromuscular disorder, osteomalacia, Parkinson’s disease, ulcers.
Digestive system
Aluminum reduces intestinal activity, and by doing so can cause colic.
Treatment of Aluminum Toxicity
Decreasing contact with and use of aluminum-containing substances will reduce intake and allow more aluminum to leave the body. Oral chelating agents will also help clear aluminum more rapidly. Calcium disodium edetate (EDTA) binds and clears aluminum from the body; this substance is fairly nontoxic and used as the agent for “chelation therapy,: an intravenous treatment used to pull metals such as lead from the body, and more recently used in the treatment of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular diseases.
Deferoxamine, an iron chelator, also binds aluminum. In a study with Alzheimer’s patients, nearly 40 percent of the patients showed an improvement in symptoms with deferoxamine treatment. There is some evidence that intravenous chelation with EDTA helps Alzheimer’s patients. More research is needed to evaluate aluminum’s involvement with this disease. Recovery is excellent for removing heavy metals.
Vitamin C
Has been found to bind aluminum. The average dose, if the patient is relatively comfortable, is about six grams a day. Up to twelve grams is not excessive. The average time on an aluminum detoxification is three to four weeks.
Prevention
The best way to prevent aluminum buildup is to avoid the sources of aluminum. Eliminating foods that have aluminum additives is probably healthier overall. Not using common table salt is a positive health step as well. Some tap waters contain aluminum, this can be checked. Avoiding aluminum cookware and replacing it with stainless steel, ceramic, or glass is a good idea. Blocking skin and sweat pores with aluminum anti-perspirants.
Barium
The possibility of barium poisoning is a reality among people working in and living near heavy industrial sites such as chemical plants, factories that produce rubber products and other such places. That is because barium is one of the components used in manufacturing the products created in these plants.
However, because many of these products end up in ordinary households, it is also possible for a person who does not work in or live near an industrial plant to experience barium poisoning. Rat poison, for instance, contains barium compounds. Some fluorescent bulbs have coatings made from barium oxide. Fish caught in waters near industrial sites may have absorbed barium from the water.
Given the considerable probability of a person becoming afflicted with barium poisoning, how would you know for sure if you or someone living with you ingested barium at toxic levels? If you find yourself or someone living in your household with symptoms of barium poisoning, then you should act immediately.
What Is Barium?
In order to understand how serious barium poisoning is, we need first to understand what barium is in the first place. Barium is a heavy metal that naturally occurs in the environment. It is silvery white in appearance.
Barium is valuable in many industries that make use of heavy metal because it can remove traces of oxygen in some chemical compounds. It also increases the luster of glass. However, barium is explosive and can react violently when mixed with water. Also, it cannot be digested by the body; barium can be poisonous if the amount the body contains exceeds tolerable levels.
Symptoms of Barium Poisoning to Look For
When barium accumulates in the body, it usually affects the functions of the nervous system. Barium poisoning displays symptoms that are similar to flu, which is why it is not strange to find the condition misdiagnosed as flu. Common symptoms of barium poisoning include:
1. Muscle weakness and tremors
2. Difficulty in breathing
3. Stomach irritations accompanied by diarrhea
4. Anxiety
5. Cardiac irregularities such as abnormally high blood pressure and rapid heartbeat
6. Paralysis
What to Do in Case of Barium Poisoning
In case someone in your household has just ingested something that contains barium, the first thing you need to do is to induce him or her to vomit. This will get some of the barium out of the victim’s system. You can also mix a tablespoon of Epsom salts (sodium sulfate or magnesium sulfate) with a glass of water and get the victim to drink it. Afterwards, you should bring the victim to the emergency room of the nearest hospital to make sure that he or she does not succumb to barium poisoning.
You can also prevent barium poisoning from happening in your home. For one, you should keep your rat poison or any other chemical substances in your house that contains barium out of reach of children. Make sure that you have labeled their containers properly.
You should also avoid eating fish that was caught near industrial sites and ascertain that the fish and seafood you eat does not contain barium or any other heavy metal. This will prevent you from accumulating barium in your system and suffer from barium poisoning later on.

Executive Summary

Implications of Climate Change for the U.S. Army

Current conversations about climate change and its im- pacts are often rancorous and politically charged. As an organization that is, by law, non-partisan, the Depart- ment of Defense (DoD) is precariously unprepared for the national security implications of climate change-in- duced global security challenges. This study examines the implications of climate change for the United States Army. This includes national security challenges asso- ciated with or worsened by climate change, and orga- nizational challenges arising from climate change-re- lated issues in the domestic environment. Given that, the study’s starting point is the implications of climate change for the U.S. Army, and the Army is therefore the focus of the analysis and recommendations. That said, much of the analysis involves DoD and other elements of the government, and most of the Army-specific rec- ommendations have parallels that apply to other military services.

The study itself did not involve original research on the nature or magnitude of climate change. The analysis assumes, based on the preponderance of evidence available, that significant changes in climate have al- ready occurred, likely to worsen in the years ahead. The study did not look to ascribe causation to climate change (man-made or natural), as causation is distinct from effects and not pertinent to the approximately 50- year horizon considered for the study. The study does, however, assume that human behavior can mitigate both the size and consequences of negative impacts that result from climate change.

Summary of Analysis

Initial findings of the study focus on changes to the physical environment and the human response to those changes.

Sea level rise, changes in water and food security, and more frequent extreme weather events are likely to re-

sult in the migration of large segments of the popula- tion. Rising seas will displace tens (if not hundreds) of millions of people, creating massive, enduring insta- bility. This migration will be most pronounced in those regions where climate vulnerability is exacerbated by weak institutions and governance and underdeveloped civil society. Recent history has shown that mass hu- man migrations can result in increased propensity for conflict and turmoil as new populations intermingle with and compete against established populations. More frequent extreme weather events will also increase de- mand for military humanitarian assistance.

Salt water intrusion into coastal areas and changing weather patterns will also compromise or eliminate fresh water supplies in many parts of the world. Additionally, warmer weather increases hydration requirements. This means that in expeditionary warfare, the Army will need to supply itself with more water. This significant logis- tical burden will be exacerbated on a future battlefield that requires constant movement due to the ubiquity of adversarial sensors and their deep strike capabilities.

A warming trend will also increase the range of insects that are vectors of infectious tropical diseases. This, coupled with large scale human migration from tropical nations, will increase the spread of infectious disease. The Army has tremendous logistical capabilities, unique in the world, in working in austere or unsafe environ- ments. In the event of a significant infectious disease outbreak (domestic or international), the Army is likely to be called upon to assist in the response and contain- ment.

Arctic ice will continue to melt in a warming climate. These Arctic changes present both challenges and op- portunities. The decrease in Arctic sea ice and associat- ed sea level rise will bring conflicting claims to newly-ac- cessible natural resources. It will also introduce a new theater of direct military contact between an increasing-

1

ly belligerent Russia and other Arctic nations, including the U.S. Yet the opening of the Arctic will also increase commercial opportunities. Whether due to increased commercial shipping traffic or expanded opportunities for hydrocarbon extraction, increased economic activity will drive a requirement for increased military expendi- tures specific to that region. In short, competition will increase.

The increased likelihood of more intense and longer du- ration drought in some areas, accompanied by great- er atmospheric heating, will put an increased strain on the aging U.S. power grid and further spur large scale human migration elsewhere. Power generation in U.S. hydroelectric and nuclear facilities will be affected. This dual attack on both supply and demand could create more frequent, widespread and enduring power grid failures, handicapping the U.S. economy.

In addition to the changing environmental conditions that will contribute to a changing security environment, climate change will likely also result in social, political, and market pressures that may profoundly affect the Ar- my’s (and DoD’s) activities. Studies indicate that global society, including in the U.S., increasingly views climate change as a grave threat to security. As the electorate becomes more concerned about climate change, it fol- lows that elected officials will, as well. This may result in significant restrictions on military activities (in peace- time) that produce carbon emissions. In concert with these changes, consumer demands will drive market adaptation. Businesses will focus on more environmen- tally sound products and practices to meet demand.

The DoD does not currently possess an environmental- ly conscious mindset. Political and social pressure will eventually force the military to mitigate its environmental impact in both training and wartime. Implementation of these changes will be costly in effort, time and money. This is likely to occur just as the DoD is adjusting to changes in the security environment previously high- lighted.

Summary of Recommendations

In light of these findings, the military must consider changes in doctrine, organization, equipping, and train- ing to anticipate changing environmental requirements. Greater inter-governmental and inter-organizational co- operation, mandated through formal framework agree- ments, will allow the DoD to anticipate those areas where future conflict is more likely to occur and to implement a campaign-plan-like approach to proactively prepare for likely conflict and mitigate the impacts of mass migra- tion. Focused research and early funding of anticipated future equipment and requirements will spread the cost of adaptation across multiple budget cycles, diminish the “sticker shock” and impacts to overall spending.

Finally, the DoD must begin now to promulgate a culture of environmental stewardship across the force. Lagging behind public and political demands for energy efficien- cy and minimal environmental footprint will significantly hamstring the Department’s efforts to face national se- curity challenges. The Department will struggle to main- tain its positive public image and that will impact the military’s ability to receive the required funding to face the growing number of security challenges.

The recommendations of this study follow.

  1. THE ARMY OPERATING ENVIRONMENT

1.1 Problem: Hydration Challenges in a Contested Environment

Recommendation: The Army must develop ad- vanced technologies to capture ambient hu- midity and transition technology from the United States Army Research, Development, and Engi- neering Command (RDECOM) that supports the water sustainment tenants of decentralizing and embedded, harvest water, and recycle and re- use.

Implementation Timing: 6-10 Years Resource Requirement: Moderate

2

1.2 Problem: Lack of adequate preparation and co- herence in doctrine, training, and capabilities development to support effective Arctic opera- tions.

Recommendation: The Army and the Depart- ment of Defense must begin planning and im- plementing changes to training, equipment, doctrine and capabilities in anticipation of an ex- panded role in the Arctic associated with global climate adaptation.

Implementation Timing: Now to 10+ Years. Resource Requirements: Moderate to High.

  1. THE ARMY INSTITUTION

1.1 Problem: The Lack of a Culture of Environmen-

tal Stewardship

Recommendation: Army leadership must create a culture of environmental consciousness, stay ahead of societal demands for environmental stewardship and serve as a leader for the na- tion or it risks endangering the broad support it now enjoys. Cultural change is a senior leader responsibility.

Implementation Timing: Now Resource Requirements: Low

1.2 Problem: Potential disruptions to readiness due to restrictions on fuel use.

Recommendation: The Army must significantly increase investment in more realistic simulation that incorporates the advances in virtual and augmented reality. It should also continue to in- vest in the development of lower CO2 emissions platforms and systems.

Implementation Timing: 6-10 years (Virtual Re- ality / Augmented Reality), 10+ years (alternate energy platforms).

Resource Requirements: Moderate to High. 2. THE JOINT FORCE AND DoD

2.1 Problem: Lack of coordination and consolida- tion in climate-change related intelligence.

Recommendation: Advocate for a comprehen- sive organization, functional manager, technol- ogy, and process review study to identify the current state of intelligence community agencies with regard to climate change, with the goal of formalizing Interagency coordination on Climate Change-related intelligence.

Implementation Timing: Now Resourcing Requirements: Low

2.2 Problem: Lack of Organizational Accountability for and Coordination of Climate Change-Relat- ed Response and Mitigation Activities

Recommendation: Re-commit to the Senior En- ergy and Sustainability Council (SESC). Add a re- sourcing element to the council by providing the USA and VCSA with funding across each POM cycle to support climate-related projects that im- prove readiness and resiliency of the force.

Implementation Timing: Now, 1-10 Years

Resource Requirements: Low, though potential- ly moderate through reprogramming.

3

2.3 Problem: Lack of Climate Change-Oriented Campaign Planning and Preparation

Recommendation: (A) Develop Bangladesh (worst case scenario) Relief Campaign Plan as notional plan for preparing for broader climate change-related requirements arising from large- scale, permanent population dislocations. (B) Work more closely with the CDC to ensure ap- propriate military support to infectious disease treatment and containment. (C) Ensure pre- paredness for global, regional or local disrup- tions in logistics that may affect the Army’s op- erations or allies.

Implementation Timing: Now Resource Requirement: Low

  1. NATIONAL CONTEXT

3.1 Problem: Power Grid Vulnerabilities

Recommendation: A. An inter-agency approach, coupled with collaboration of the commercial sector, should catalogue the liabilities across the electrical grid and prioritize budget requests for infrastructure improvements. B. The DoD should pursue options to reverse infrastructure degra- dation around military installations, including funding internal power generation such as solar/ battery farms and small-nuclear reactors.

Implementation Timing: Now (A); 6-10, 10+ Years (B)

Resource Requirement: Low (A); High (B)

3.2 Problem: Climate Change and Threats to Nucle- ar Weapons Infrastructure

Recommendation: The U.S. Department of De- fense, in combination with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) should develop a long term 15 to 20 year tritium production plan that accounts for advances in nuclear technology and the pos- sibility of rising climate induced water levels as well as increases to the overall average water temperature used to cool nuclear reactors. This plan should include projections of fiscal resourc- es and military tritium requirements needed to maintain and modernize the U.S. nuclear stock- pile. It should also include U.S. government re- quirements for use of helium-3, a decay product of tritium used primarily for neutron detection when searching for special nuclear material (SNM) and enforcing nuclear non-proliferation agreements.

Implementation Timing: Now to 10+ Years

Resource Requirement: High

Finally, the study examined the threat climate change poses to the U.S. military’s coastal infrastructure, i.e., coastal military facilities and key airports and shipping facilities. Additionally, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) manages the nation’s system of inland water- ways, and condition of much of that system will be af- fected by rising seas and changing weather. That said, the study found no basis for additional action. The DoD and USACE have adequate systems and processes in place to track and manage these risks.

Introduction

Current public discourse about climate change and its impacts are often rancorous and politically charged. As an organization that is, by law, non-partisan, the Depart- ment of Defense (DoD) is precariously unprepared for the national security implications of climate change in- duced global security challenges. This study seeks to determine likely national security challenges associated with or exacerbated by anticipated climate change in an effort to craft recommendations for the DoD. Many of the recommendations are specifically targeted at the Army, however the specific recommendation or its parallel can be applied across the military as a whole. The study of climate change as a threat to U.S. and global security is

not new to the U.S. Army or DoD.

not conduct specific research on the climate or climate change but assumed through the preponderance of ev- idence available that climate change is occurring. Ad- ditionally, the study did not look to ascribe causation to the climate change (man-made or natural) as causation is distinct from effects and not pertinent to the approxi- mately 50 year horizon considered for the study.

In determining likely national security impacts and pro- viding recommendations for the military, the authors relied upon the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the Representative Concentration

Pathway (RCP) 4.5. RCP 4.5 is the middle ground pre- diction of temperature and rainfall variation provided by the IPCC for climate change studies. Use of this model is intended to provide a realistic anticipation of future impacts of climate change without forecasting either extremely dire and catastrophic impacts or minimizing them to such an extent that they are meaningless.

The findings generally are categorized as those relating to anticipated changes in the physical environment and those relating to anticipated changes in the social en- vironment. That is, the authors, using available studies, determined if changes to societal norms would have an impact on the military’s ability to execute anticipated missions. The corresponding recommendations con- sider a near, mid and long term horizon and a low, mid or high level of resources allocated against the chal- lenges. The intent is to provide senior leaders with an easy to understand anticipation of risk associated with each recommendation.

For the purposes of this study the authors chose to use the IPCC definition of climate change. This definition is most compatible as it simply looks at changing climate variables over time without ascribing causation.

Climate Change: Climate change refers to a change in the state of the climate that can be identified (e.g., by using statistical tests) by changes in the mean and/or the variability of its properties and that persists for an extended period, typically decades or longer. Climate change may be due to natural internal processes or ex- ternal forcings such as modulations of the solar cycles, volcanic eruptions and persistent anthropogenic chang- es in the composition of the atmosphere or in land use.4

An aside on Climate Models and Risk: Uncertainty com- plicates choices about how to respond to or anticipate the consequences of climate change. Regardless of the cause, climatological data reflects an environment that is always changing. Where the choices lie hinges on whether or not we choose to act. There are four possi- ble scenarios involving climate change and human ac- tion to mitigate or prepare for it. (See Figure 1, below.) Each approach carries a level of risk informed by the amount and type of action taken.

The matrix in Figure 1 summarizes payoffs from two different choices (mitigate and prepare or not), given two different contexts (climate change occurring or not). Obviously missing from this matrix is a sense of the probability of climate change itself, which would affect payoff calculations. However, for the sake of the present argument let us make the conservative assumption that climate change is a 50/50 proposition (data and theory indicate that climate change is already occurring).

Figure 1: Climate Change Risk / Response Matrix

First, we can assume no climate change is occurring and we can choose to do nothing. If our assumption about climate change is accurate, this is the most ap- pealing option. Second, we can assume there is no change occurring, but that humans choose to act and mitigate human effects to the environment. This option is unappealing in that we will have wasted economic resources, pointlessly regulating and taxing ourselves.

However, if climate change is occurring and we choose to do nothing, we invite catastrophe, though we can- not know just how bad this payoff would be. Finally, if we assume climate change is occurring and undertake mitigation and preparation, we may avoid catastrophe.5

The only justification for doing nothing to mitigate and prepare for climate change is enough certainty that cli- mate change is not occurring to justify the very consid- erable risk of doing nothing. The strength of scientific arguments in favor of significant warming projections suggests that such certainty is not defensible. (See Fig- ure 2, next page.6) Prudent risk management therefore suggests that we should work to avoid the catastrophic outcome and prepare for and mitigate climate change.

Based on this argument, this report accepts as a core assumption the reality of climate change and cli- mate-change related global warming, and therefore focuses on what the Army should do to prepare itself. Regardless of the science behind climatological projec- tions of global warming, climate change is a controver- sial political issue. For the purposes of this study, we ignore that controversy. We must observe that the plan- et is warming with a broad range of impacts relevant to the U.S. Army, and we employ middle-of-the-curve projections to guide our analysis of recommendations.

    Part 1: The Challenge of Climate Change

    Challenge 1: Climate Change and the Physical Environment

    Climate change affects the physical environment of the planet. It therefore affects the conditions in which peo- ple live, and the environment in which military organi- zations operate. The effects of a warming climate with more extreme weather are astonishingly far-reaching. Scientific studies in very diverse fields describe effects that have accelerated over the past 50 years as glaciers, Arctic and Antarctic ice sheets retreat, major weather patterns shift, and demographic, economic and politi- cal forces put more people in harm’s way, while creat- ing additional multi-dimensional stress on conventional military forces. The trend toward larger, more coherent and integrated research investments, such as the NASA Harvest Consortium, allows science agencies to estab- lish improved and tight interfaces with the DoD on top- ics relevant to the military that are outside of traditional lanes. This consortium leverages broad international

    cooperation and domestic collaborations using NASA earth observations to improve crop yield forecasting with the specific intent to establish tighter and more functional interfaces between NASA Applied Sciences Division and operational agencies, including DoD. Cli- mate change also increases the risk of unrest and con- flict globally. Human migration and refugee relocation due to chronic drought, flooding, episodes of extreme, unusual weather or other natural events create an envi- ronment ripe for conflict and large-scale humanitarian crises. In 2018, global international migration and inter- nal displacement were estimated at a historic highs by the International Organization for Migration,7 bringing increased risk of spread of infectious disease and other public health problems. The fight for dwindling resourc- es along the seams of civilization are harbingers of fu- ture U.S. involvement. If the United States is obliged or

    1. https://www.iom.int/wmr/chapter-2

    7

    chooses to respond in a humanitarian or military fashion to alleviate conflict or provide stability, then the impor- tance of recognizing climate-related impacts allows for planners to be proactive rather than reactive in formu- lating a response.

    Rising Seas and Changing Coastal Geography

    Coastal flooding is a persistent but acute cause of hu- man displacement. Historically, flood waters recede and people return to their homes. Warming changes this calculus, with rising seas introducing the possibility of permanent displacement of tens, even hundreds of millions of inhabitants of high-risk coastal areas.

    The relationship between climate change and interna- tional security is not well understood because climate’s largest effects on conflict and governance are indirect, mediated through a variety of effects on weather. These sustained shifts in weather in turn produce a wide va- riety of impacts from one pole to the other and from the sea to the highest mountains. Nevertheless, we can make logical predictions of potential conflict, disruption of trade and humanitarian crises given known risks and exacerbating factors. Consider the case of Bangladesh, a nation with a history of disastrous seasonal flooding. According to one observer, “[Located] in the Ganges Delta, made up of 230 major rivers and streams, 160 million people live in a place one-fifth the size of France and as flat as chapati…”8 Almost half of the population of Bangladesh lives at sea level.9 As seas rise and huge areas of Bangladesh become uninhabitable, where will tens of millions of displaced Bangladeshis go? How will this large scale displacement affect global security in a region with nearly 40% of the world’s population and several antagonistic nuclear powers? For a recent secu-

  • rity crisis benchmark, look at Syria.10

    The Syrian civil war has been an international disaster with humanitarian and security impacts in the Middle East, Africa and Europe that will continue long into the future. Pre-war Syria had a population of about 22 mil- lion.11 Almost five million Syrians have fled the country since the start of the civil war.12 A host of factors con- tributed to the outbreak of civil war with causality still a matter of debate. There is, however, no question that the conflict erupted coincident with a major drought in the region which forced rural people into Syrian cities as large numbers of Iraqi refugees arrived.13 The Syri- an civil war has reignited civil war in Iraq, and brought the U.S. and Russian militaries into close contact under difficult circumstances. The Syrian population has de- clined by about ten percent since the start of the war, with millions of refugees fleeing the nation, increasing instability in Europe, and stoking violent extremism.14

    By comparison, Bangladesh has eight times Syria’s population, and a conflicted history as a former part of Pakistan. Bangladesh is a predominantly Muslim nation locked between India and Burma. The latter is already under international scrutiny for its poor treatment of the Rohingya minority, the largest percentage of which have

    not make that argument here, as recent research questions this relationship. See Selby, Jan, Omar S.

    fled to Bangladesh. India is a nuclear-armed state per- petually on the verge of conflict with its nuclear-armed western neighbor, Pakistan. Indeed, Bangladesh’s exis- tence is the result of a war between those two nations. The permanent displacement of a large portion of the population of Bangladesh would be a regional catastro- phe with the potential to increase global instability. This is a potential result of climate change complications in just one country.

    Globally, over 600 million people live at sea level.15 Sea level rise also poses a direct threat to Army/DoD instal- lations and missions worldwide. The DoD must assess the vulnerabilities to installations and risks to mission at all locations, prioritizing those most at risk. Early recog- nition of the complex risks will allow planning and im- plementation to best mitigate the risk and spread costs out over multiple budgetary periods. The 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) mandates that the Department of Defense submit a report to Congress with respect to the impact of climate change on DoD missions. Specifically, the NDAA requires that the report include “vulnerabilities to military installations and com- batant commander requirements resulting from climate change over the next 20 years.”16 There are currently numerous studies already extant that detail the risks to military installations, some of them executed by govern- ment organizations, including the Army Corps of Engi- neers. Additionally, this report will examine mitigations to the risk associated with climate change impacts.

    Opening the Arctic

    The Arctic is undergoing some of the most significant and noticeable effects of climate change anywhere on the globe. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), since satellite monitoring of the Arctic began in 1979, the Arctic ice extent has de-

  • creased from 3.5 – 4.1%.17 Furthermore, the IPCC pre- dicts with high confidence that the Arctic will warm more rapidly than other parts of the globe through at least the year 2100, well beyond the horizon of this study.18 This warming will cause further diminishment of the Arctic ice, presenting many economic opportunities and secu- rity challenges for the United States and its allies.

    As the sea ice in the Arctic continues to decrease, there are greater opportunities for all nations to take advan- tage of new shipping routes between ports in Asia and those in Europe or Eastern North America. According to researchers at the University of Reading in the UK, even if emissions diminish, as proposed by the Paris Accords, by 2050 opportunities for non-modified (that is, ships that are not double hulled or specifically de- signed for transit through ice prone environments) ves- sels to transit the Arctic Ocean will double. Furthermore, many of those journeys could take place directly across the pole in international waters, avoiding transit fees.19 From a money and time saving perspective, these shorter routes will be more and more attractive to ship- ping companies as the ice recedes. Currently, a typical East Asia to Rotterdam route, transiting the Suez Canal, takes about 30 days. The most conservative estimates of sea ice change estimate non-specialized vessels will be able to complete that route across the Arctic in 23 days and that that route would be available for over half the year.20

    Furthermore, according to a 2008 U.S. Geological sur- vey, the Arctic likely holds approximately one quarter of the world’s undiscovered hydrocarbon reserves.21 Though the United States territorially possesses only a

    small percentage of the Arctic area, estimates are that 20% of those undiscovered reserves are potentially in U.S. territory.22 However, territorial claims in the Arctic are not well established and continue to be disputed amongst the Arctic nations.23 As the extent of the re- sources available in the Arctic become more evident, there is a greater potential for conflict. The United States is likely to reach accommodation with allies in the region, but Russia’s global pattern of aggression and attempts to reestablish great power status may set conditions for another flashpoint in the Arctic. The Arctic waters may make this evidently a Navy and Air Force issue, however the Army will be tasked with wide area security and re- connaissance roles as part of any joint efforts to secure Arctic interests.

    Russia probably has the greatest immediate security concerns as it already earns transit fees from shipping companies using its Arctic waters. Russia has embarked on a rapid build-up in the Arctic, including expensive re- furbishment of Soviet era Arctic bases. Russia’s current Arctic plans include the opening of ten search and res- cue stations, 16 deep water ports, 13 airfields and ten air defense sites.24 (See Figure 3, below.25) These devel- opments create not only security outposts for Russia, but also threats to the U.S. mainland. Russia’s recent development of KH-101/102 air launched cruise mis- siles and SSC-8 ground launched cruise missiles po- tentially put much of the United States at risk from low altitude, radar evading, nuclear capable missiles.

    Russia is not the only nation considering security expan- sion in the Arctic. Since 2013, the United States Coast Guard has budgeted for the development and fielding of a new Polar Class heavy icebreaker to augment the one heavy and one medium icebreaker they now have in service. To date they have received almost $191 mil- lion in funding toward the acquisition, estimated to cost just less than $1 billion.26 The FY2018 National Defense Authorization Act authorized the full procurement of the vessel.27

    The relatively rapid pace of change in the Arctic will gen- erate opportunities, forecast and unexpected, on which nations around the world will capitalize. However, with any advantage comes the need to secure it. The United States must be prepared not only to seize any opportu- nities, but also to protect those assets and project pow- er into newly accessible areas. All of these factors sug- gest that military operations in the Arctic will become more common.

    Increased Range of Insect-Borne Diseases

    Infectious diseases remain a concern for expeditionary forces and indigenous populations alike. As the climate changes, the distribution and prevalence of endemic diseases will change. Diseases that were endemic be- fore could become altered and mutate to new regions. Extensive research has shown local weather condi- tions and other related environmental factors strongly influence vector-borne diseases. 2829 Diseases caused

    disease.36 Today, the DoD and members of the U.S. In- telligence Community assess the risk of malaria to U.S. forces operating in East Africa 37 as high to intermediate depending on the country. A high-risk represents “an operationally significant attack rate (potentially 11-50% per month) could occur among personnel exposed to mosquito bites.” 38

    The average projected climate changes in East Africa by 2050 show temperatures between 25-30° C. The projected average precipitation shows increased rain- fall in select countries. Coupling the generally optimal conditions for malaria carrying mosquitos with the ex- pected climate conditions in 2050, we can conclude that the environment will likely be much more favorable to malarial vectors.39 The temperatures and increase of precipitation may lead to decreasing parasite devel- opment, more stable adult populations and increased bite rates.40 It is also fair to conclude the more favorable conditions could lead to an increase of the prevalence of malaria.

    The predicted rise in average global temperatures equates to the need for more water to sustain all life. As ambient temperatures rise, so does the risk of rais- ing body temperature. Proper water consumption rates reduce this risk if there is water readily available to con- sume. As the rigor of activities increases so does the need for increased hydration. Simultaneously as the demand for water increases in a warmer climate, the amount of water readily available for use is reduced due to evaporation.49 The combination of expeditionary sol- diers fighting in a hot climate with scarce water supplies exacerbates logistical requirements.

    Saltwater intrusion is another factor increasing the risk for conflict in coastal areas with large populations. As the need for more water increases, fossil freshwater aquifers are tapped which are not replenished. Re- duced water levels in some coastal aquifers can lead to increased salinity as a result of the intrusion of seawater into the aquifer. Typically, a water table in a coastal area pushes fresh water to the ocean, but in this case, the salt water makes its way into the aquifer rendering it un- usable. (See Figure 4.)

    Decreased Food Security and Food System Stability

    The United Nations (UN) Food Agricultural Organization (FAO) defines food security as a state when “all peo- ple, at all times, have physical and economic access to sufficient safe and nutritious food that meets their di- etary needs and food preferences for an active healthy life.”51 Food security is premised on four components: food availability, food accessibility, food utilization and food system stability.52 (See Table 1, next page.) In its broadest terms, food security is the ability to have con- sistent access to food that is safe and meets dietary guidelines.53

    When food systems fail, whether a failure of agricultur- al production, a supply chain failure that interferes with food processing or transport, or economic or financial disruption affecting demand, outbreaks of civil conflict and social unrest become more likely.58 Global food se- curity hinges on the production of four crops: maize, wheat, rice, and soybeans.59 These commodities, along with a long list of foodstuffs moving through both formal and informal channels, are the core outputs of the glob- al food system – the poorly defined, highly dynamic, complex web of transfers and interactions.

    Climate change will have diverse impacts on local, re- gional and global food system stability, far beyond its immediate effects on agricultural production affecting both availability of food and the resilience of underly- ing ecosystems.70 Changes in the length and stability of growing seasons around the world, altered precipitation patterns resulting in droughts, high night temperatures, floods or shifted seasonal patterns will also impact crop production.71 Some evidence indicates that rising CO

    Changes in temperature will also

    In September 2016, U.S. the Intelligence Community

    (IC) conducted analysis of possible impacts of climate

    change on national security over the next 20 years.79

    Their report highlighted the projected occurrence of

    more extreme weather and how damaging it may be to

    natural systems such as oceans, lakes, rivers, ground

    water, reefs, and forests. Most of the critical infrastruc-

    tures identified by the Department of Homeland Security

    are not built to withstand these altered conditions. The

    lower Mississippi River has sustained 100-, 200- and

    500-year floods (meaning the chance is 1% or less that

    a flood of that magnitude would occur 500 simulations

    of the current year) in the last 8 years. Between 2016

    and 2018, Ellicott City, Maryland sustained two 1,000-

    year floods.

    (80%) and imports (78%) are water-borne, floods that leave lasting damage to shipping infrastructure pose a major threat to U.S. lives and communities, the U.S. economy and global food security. The U.S. Intelligence Community’s 2016 study further emphasized the social and economic implications realized by damaging these systems. The increased urbanization of areas prone to these weather events will only further stress governmen- tal agencies tasked with recovery and support. Addi- tionally, the study captured potential instability of coun- tries, heightened social and political tensions, adverse effects on food prices and availability, increased risks to human health, negative impacts on investments and economic competitiveness.81

    Increased Incidence of Extreme Weather

    Numerous climate models suggest that a warming cli- mate incurs more frequent extreme weather events and intensified weather patterns such as heat domes, polar vortices, super storms, monster ridges, and wider rang- es of extremes, especially in spring and fall in temperate climates.76 The U.S. Army is directly affected by these extremes, and has obligations connected to disaster recovery efforts related to a changing climate. Not only are Army personnel and installations at risk, the issue compounds when more than one major event occurs in a short interval or where natural disaster occurs where local social, political, and economic infrastructures are not resourced to handle the situation. Attention to a changing climate remains integral to the Army’s prepa- ration and response of devastating weather events like recent hurricanes Katrina, Rita, Harvey, Irma and Maria. Hurricane Michael in 2018 was the wettest hurricane on record, reflecting a more general trend of windier and wetter hurricanes.77,78 Natural disasters like these will

    • Loss of all electrical systems that do not have back-up power87

    The Presidential Policy Directive-Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience lists 16 critical infrastructures susceptible to power grid failure that directly tie to U.S. national security and the homeland defense mission of the Department of Defense (DoD).88 The Congressional Electro-Magnetic Pulse (EMP) Commission, in 2008, es- timated it would cost $2 billion to harden just the grid’s

    United States alone, ten cities contain more than one million people, and more than 35 with a population of over 500,000.83,84 The power grid that serves the United States is aging and continues to operate without a co- ordinated and significant infrastructure investment. Vul- nerabilities exist to electricity-generating power plants, electric transmission infrastructure and distribution system components. Power transformers average over 40 years of age and 70 percent of transmission lines are 25 years or older. The U.S. national power grid is susceptible to coordinated cyber or physical attacks; electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attacks; space weather; and other natural events, to include the stressors of a changing climate.85,86

    The EMP Commission further cited that some of

    Policy reported that capability and capacity to repair or replace power grid unique infrastructure is reliant on production timelines exceeding a year. Most of these production facilities reside outside the United States, greatly adding to repair times and exacerbating vulner- ability.92

    Defense of the homeland requires reliable access to power generation capabilities to protect critical infra- structure areas, maintain sovereign security, and pro- vide aid to the nation’s population when needed. De- partment of Defense installations are 99 percent reliant on the U.S. power grid for electrical power generation due to the decommissioning of autonomous power generation capability for budgetary cost saving mea- sures over the last two decades.93

    While generators would allow continued operations for a time, a long-term outage of the power grid would rapidly erode the ability to perform numerous missions as re- sources were diverted toward humanitarian assistance/ disaster response operations in the homeland.

    Relief efforts aggravated by seasonal climatological effects would potentially accelerate the criticality of the developing situation. The cascading effects of power loss, as depicted below, would rapidly challenge the military’s ability to continue operations. (See Figure 5.94)

    While securing the U.S. power grid will take a whole of government approach, the Joint Force’s responsibili- ty to defend the homeland is the strongest reason for DoD to prioritize funding towards a solution. The Ser- vices must be clear in their assessment of installation vulnerability to an outage of the power grid and the con- sequences for homeland through missile defense, De- fense Support to Civil Authorities, and military response to direct threats. Response delays in any of these areas will impair any effort to stabilize the situation or quickly respond to crisis anywhere in the United States.

    Aside from power distribution concerns, our power gen- eration capabilities are also at risk. Due to their water demands, safety requirements, and locations adjacent to waterways, nuclear power stations in the United States are at high risk of temporary or permanent clo- sure due to climate threats, as demonstrated by the ex- ample facilities in Connecticut and Tennessee. The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) authorizes the current operation of 99 nuclear reactors, including both pressurized and boiling water reactors (PWR; BWR), which supplied 19.7% of the country’s utility-scale en- ergy in 2016.95 In general, the country’s reliance on nu- clear energy has increased marginally over time, with a net 1.2% increase in nuclear-generated electricity from 2016 to 2017.

    Ultimately, 59 (or 60%) of the country’s nuclear reactors exist in regions that are likely to suffer from one or more climate threats. These regions include New England (major risk: sea level rise), Mid-Atlantic (major risks: sea level rise and/or severe storms), South Atlantic (major risks: sea level rise and/or severe storms), and East South Central (major risk: water shortage). Based on their locations, 100% of reactors in New England, 26% in the Mid-Atlantic region, 38% in the South Atlantic re- gion, and 100% in the East South Central region are at risk of experiencing major climate threats.

    The dangers facing some of these reactors have not gone unnoticed. For instance, Florida’s Saint Lucie Nuclear Power Plant was shut down during Hurricane Matthew in 2016.96 Operation of its sister facility, Turkey Point Nuclear Generating Station, was similarly ceased during Hurricane Irma in 2017.97 Furthermore, expan- sion projects at Turkey Point, with proposals and con- struction spanning the last decade, have been criticized by several South Florida government officials who cite the challenge of rising sea levels.98 New Jersey’s Oyster Creek BWR will be decommissioned by the end of 2019 because of an unwillingness to construct costly cooling towers;99 these structures will become increasingly im- portant for reactors operating in regions where warming trends are apparent. Such complications, critiques, and closures are examples of impending climate change impacts on other nuclear energy facilities in the United States.

    While it is true that nearly all types of energy infrastruc- ture may suffer from climate changes unique to their lo- cations, the only clean energy facilities likely to suffer as much or more than nuclear plants are their hydroelectric counterparts. In fact, hydropower’s reliance on steady water access makes this sector particularly susceptible to climate-induced dryness. Experts expect drought to reduce hydropower generation due to declining reser- voir levels, observed in 2007 when drought caused a

    30% decrease in hydroelectric capacity in Tennessee.

    This is consequential due to the nation’s increasing de- mand for hydropower. In 2016, hydropower comprised 6.5% of utility-scale energy generated in the United States, making up the largest component (44%) of the country’s renewable energy.101

    From 2016 to 2017, a net 10.6% increase in U.S. hy- dropower generation was recorded. These numbers indicate that the two regions having the second- and third-fastest increase in hydropower usage (i.e., East South Central and West South Central) are also at high risk of future temperature increases and prolonged drought. Currently, 47 and 34 hydropower plants are op- erating in the East South Central and West South-Cen- tral regions, respectively, totaling at least 81 facilities that could suffer from reduced capacity in the near future.

    Challenge 2: Climate Change and the So- cial, Economic, and Political Environment

    Most of the preceding discussion of the physical en- vironmental implications of climate change should be familiar. Less commonly discussed are the social, po- litical, and economic effects of human concerns about climate change. Regardless of the actual physical ef- fects of climate change, the belief in climate change as a threat to the earth and its inhabitants is an increas- ing force in international politics.102 This suggests that to some extent the debate about whether the planet is warming, or if human activity is the cause, is irrelevant. If a powerful section of the human population believes that the planet is warming, believes that this warming is human-induced and that climate change is a threat, and if that section acts on those beliefs, climate change will have political, social, and economic consequences that the Army will be unable to ignore.

    Social Responses

    Climate change taps into profound fears of insecurity. Humans are highly motivated by symbols, and what more potent symbol is there of human thriving and the fragility of life than the planet itself? A recent Pew survey indicated that climate change trailed only ISIS globally as a security concern.103

    The population of the United States is also concerned about climate change. Gallup News published a sto- ry in March, 2017 titled “Global Warming Concern at Three-Decade High in the U.S.”104 The polling data to support the story showed that, from a post-9/11 low of 51% in 2011, now 67% of the population worry about global warming a “great deal” or a “fair amount”.105 This concern is most prevalent among today’s youth, indi- cating a propensity for the electorate to become more climate sensitive as that demographic ages.106

    Powerful symbols engender social mobilization and change. To have a huge effect on human affairs, these symbols need not be deeply rooted in reality.

    tion created a nation that would change the world. All of these phenomena derived much of their power from symbols. Grasping the power of the earth as a symbol requires little imagination compared to the nuances of Mohamed’s revelations, Luther’s theses, or the Ameri- can case for independence.

    Social mobilization around climate change will have winners and losers. Clear winners will be individuals and organizations perceived to be acting in the collective interest of both humanity and the natural environment. Clear losers will be individuals and entities whose ac- tions are perceived to undermine environmental stabili- ty. Increased access to mass communication platforms means that no single entity will control the narrative re- garding who these winners and losers are.

    What is the current perception of the U.S. Army, the

    U.S. military, or the U.S. government as a steward of the

    environment? We have no good data on this question.

    Anecdotally, the U.S. government is perceived to be an

    irresponsible actor in the global environment. The U.S.

    withdrawal from the Paris accords elicited strong reac-

    tions in the developed world.107 By contrast, although

    China is the largest carbon emitting nation,108 it has

    been more thoughtful about how it projects its image

    globally with respect to carbon emissions, and Chinese

    clean energy initiatives have been widely publicized in the U.S.109,110,111

  • The energy and pollution practices of the U.S. military have been subject to less scrutiny both domestically and abroad and have not yet risen to the level of urgen- cy of other issues such as sexual assault. However, as environmental and security concerns increasingly over- lap, the international perception of the U.S. as an irre- sponsible actor could have serious implications for the U.S. military, which relies on allies to maintain its glob- al posture. The U.S. military depends on access to the bases and ports of allies, it enjoys flyover privileges, and other preferential treatment. All of this exists because al- lies see the U.S. as aligned with their core interests. In the core powers of Europe, in the Commonwealth coun- tries, in Japan, and elsewhere, social mobilization due to perceived climate change has the potential to create a fundamental misalignment between the U.S. and its key allies.112 The U.S. may find itself more internationally isolated than at any times since its repudiation of the League of Nations.

    Market Responses

    The private sector will play the largest role as it explores ways to respond to society’s evolving need to “protect, retreat [from], or accommodate” activities that cause climate change.113 The market consequences of climate change are complex and ambiguous. Humanitarian and development organizations are also working intensely to build or rebuild markedly more resilient communities with enhanced distributed collective intelligence, de- centralized grid structures and other strategies that may improve overall resilience. In general, however, market consequences of climate change are complex and am-

    biguous. Highly entrenched economic interests may distort market signals. Global reductions in demand for hydrocarbons means that gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel should become less expensive. On the other hand, re- duced demand tends to reduce incentives to explore potential oil fields or build new refining facilities. Much of the U.S.’s domestic oil extraction is unprofitable at oil prices below $30 a barrel. Technological advances tend to push this number lower, but exhaustion of oil fields tends to push the number higher. In all scenarios, global declines in oil consumption increase the sensitivity of oil markets to the choices of large consumers like the U.S. DoD.

    Regulations will play a factor in driving the behavior of both consumers and private sector companies. By establishing standards such as fuel economy, limiting carbon emissions, setting greenhouse gas targets, or providing tax incentives for individuals, the regulatory arm of the government can be a powerful tool over the next 30 years. The United States’ participation in Orga- nization for Economic and Cooperation Development (OECD) will continue to provide opportunities to identify shared values with partner nations and set global tar- gets.

    Regulatory action often flows from collective interest in change. In the case of climate change, many regula- tions may create compliance challenges for the U.S. military. We think it unlikely that the U.S. government would restrict military carbon emissions in combat op- erations, for example. We are less optimistic about the absence of such restrictions on force development. In- deed, we consider it likely that at some point in the next two decades the U.S. government will introduce carbon emissions restrictions that affect non-combat military operations. While the Air Force can quickly increase its reliance on flight simulation, the Army remains wedded to training and practicing in live scenarios. This makes the Army highly susceptible to disruptions in readiness development should the government introduce carbon emissions restrictions.

    Technological Responses

    To mitigate the effects of climate change, government organizations, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector will need to pursue technological en- hancements. These enhancements must be “climate in- formed” so that improvements do not create unintend- ed vulnerabilities.114

    The clearest opportunities for climate-change related in- novation are in clean energy production, transmission, and storage. Each of these areas creates risks and op- portunities for the U.S. military. The automated, A.I.-en- hanced force of the Army’s future is one that runs on electricity, not JP-8. More efficient or resilient production of electricity through micro-nuclear power generation or improved solar arrays can fundamentally alter the mobility and the logistical challenges of a mechanized force. Light, quick-charging batteries (super-capacitors) have tremendous value in such a force; so does the wireless transmission of electrical current.115

    Innovations such as weather control and weather miti- gation techniques may serve to stave-off the worst im- pacts of climate change. For example, researchers are exploring ways to combat the effects of climate change through geoengineering. This controversial program in- volves either “capturing and storing some of the carbon dioxide that has already been emitted so that the atmo- sphere traps less heat or reflects more sunlight away from the earth so there is less heat to start with.”116 Other opportunities for technological change include weather

    The last area of concern regarding weather threats cen- ters around attribution. The United States defends itself daily from activities of rival nations that fall below the lev- el of war but can still negatively target national security. Nations who feel they cannot compete with the United States directly use these methods to level the playing field. As an example, a 2015 DoD Cybersecurity Culture and Compliance Initiative states that the DoD had been the subject of over 30 million malicious attacks to its network in just the short period from September, 2014 to June, 2015.119 Targeted attacks by hackers or comput- er viruses can leverage naturally occurring events like space weather to disguise their intrusion into U.S. net- works as they create effects that mimic space weather threats. By using space weather events or manufactur- ing events that mimic space weather, adversaries can create a non-attributional attack on vital systems with little concern of detection until it is too late to react.

    One such possible event made international news in the Spring of 2016. Swedish air traffic controllers reported widespread and persistent outages of their aviation ra- dar network over the course of five days in November of 2015. Publicly attributed to a solar event, domestic and international flight operations halted while repair ef- forts searched for the cause of the outage. Anonymous sources pointed towards a more ominous culprit than space weather as further reporting claimed Swedish authorities traced the beginning of the outage to an advanced persistent threat group previously linked to the Russian military intelligence agency, Spetsnaz GRU. The Swedish Civil Aviation Administration later came

    out their electronic warfare capability.

    series of geomagnetic storms did occur during this pe- riod does create some doubt as to the validity of the rumors, however, that does not preclude the capability exists. That only Sweden’s radar network felt the effects of the storm lends credence to other explanations.

    While all countries claim a purely scientific interest and capability for experimenting with the natural environ- ment, a prudent strategic leader should look to the du- al-use possibilities of such labors and seek mitigation strategies.

    Challenge 3: The Army and DoD – Organi- zational Confusion and Lack of Account- ability for Climate Change

    No systemic understanding of the wide diversity of climate-change related intelligence.

    The section above on the environmental effects of cli- mate change demonstrates the wide variety of stake- holders who are monitoring climate change-related ef- fects. These include public health organizations such and the W.H.O. and the Centers for Disease Control, energy producers and regulators such as the Feder- al Energy Regulatory Commission, weather observers such as NASA and the NOAA, humanitarian organiza- tions like the World Food Program, national security entities like the U.S. military, and numerous private and public organizations like universities, NGOs, and so on. Climate change is at the center of a complex web of interactions. During this study, we were struck by how much many people knew about parts of the phenome-

    The fact that a

    na, but we were also surprised by the lack of a holistic view of the problem, and a sense of how some areas would relate to each other. Climate change is a com- mon cause linking a disparate set of challenges, but we currently have no systemic view to assess and manage risk. In contrast, in China, systems science and engi- neering is considered so important to the future of Chi- na that this is a course of study required for all cadres in the Chinese Communist Party’s Central Party School in Beijing.121 Thanks in part to some spectacular historical failures and collaboration with the University of Hull, the hard systems approaches have been amended to sys- tematically take into account wuli (objective exploration of a problem, facts, futures), shili (mathematical and conceptual models used to organize a system), and renli (human relationships). The application of these ap- proaches at large scale, coupled with intensive urban surveillance, state-influenced social media, and biomet- ric fintech, have the potential to create very significant asymmetries in resilience between the U.S. and China to climate-induced effects and any other type of attack or disaster.

    In the U.S., there are many actions that would be war- ranted by recent past experience to reduce vulnerabil- ities of the Army, the DoD and the nation such that the DoD is mobilized under a State of Emergency. No single approach is likely to be adequate to prepare the U.S. Army and the DoD as a whole for altered conditions that are either in place already or virtually certain to occur at some point in the future. In the past two decades, the DoD has been under increasing pressure from Congress to prepare strategies, plans and capabilities necessary to ensure preparedness for the wide array of potential impacts on weather resulting from climate change. The NDAA for 2018 mandated at least two studies to this effect, one focused on climate per se, and one focused on DoD vulnerabilities to disruption of

    the global food system. While there have been signifi- cant interagency investment and collaboration through the past two decades, there is an ongoing need for im- proved interagency collaboration between intelligence, defense, and civilian agencies on climate change data collection, analysis, and forecasting. Where not already routine, the intelligence community’s analyses would be improved by the systematic inclusion, as a matter of course, of closely synched present day and near-term insights from climate projections, modeling, and weath- er data into established products and processes. DoD and natural science agencies would benefit from the additional qualitative and quantitative collection, provid- ed by IC platforms, to improve their own processes and products.

    The lack of organizational accountability in the DoD and the Army

    They say that “what gets measured, gets done.” In large, complex, bureaucracies, getting “new” things done often involves adding structure. Especially in long-es- tablished organizations, the addition of new structures can engender distress by way of competition for fixed resources and local or general cultural opposition, this can create circumstances where new structures be- come disconnected from the normal socialization, in- tegration and resourcing processes. Such challenges can arise no matter how justified or important the “new” effort is. In many cases, new administrative structures, staffing and infrastructure are required. Under any cir- cumstances, “best laid plans,” can become hard to implement across the organization. Climate change presents the Army with a bureaucratically “new” and complex challenge that must be socialized, integrated, and resourced across the enterprise. Climate change is a national security imperative that cuts across the department and has no single organization wholly re- sponsible for addressing it. But the Army and its sister Services are not alone in wondering how to address cli- mate change. Congress’ oversight authority enables it to query the Department of Defense (DOD) about its plans to address the impact of climate change. The 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), di-

    24

    rected the DOD to provide a report on the vulnerabilities to installations and combatant command requirements resulting from climate change over the next 20 years.122 The report is required to list of the ten most vulnerable installations, mitigation and cost strategy, and frequen- cy of humanitarian assistance/disaster relief (HADR) missions.123 The Army will task within its organizations for the answer, but short of the occasional request from Congress, is there any organization within the Army that periodically assesses how it is doing across the enter- prise? Who is deciding what trades to make, where to invest, what to invest in, or what the Army’s priorities should be? The Army is making efforts toward address- ing climate change, but who or what body is defining those priorities?

    From an organizational structure, the Army does not have a good mechanism for holistically assessing and re-assessing the present and future impacts of climate change on the Army, nor is there a systematic mech- anism in place to track present and past impacts on the force. Any new organizing construct within the Army to address the very diverse impacts of climate change across scales and geographies should reflect the Army leadership’s objectives. It should provide vis- ibility across the enterprise about what the Army is do- ing, and the level of readiness or preparedness being resourced. And it should also provide leadership with an understanding of how climate change has and will impact areas such as training, readiness, supply chain, and its future cost implications.

    The Environmentally Oblivious Culture of the Army

    The Army has thrived despite a culture of environmental oblivion that exists within the force. Conditions may no longer favor this tendency. Trends show that the Unit- ed States is becoming more environmentally conscious and that the threat of climate change and our impact on the planet is seen as a threat to our national security by a majority of the population.124

    The Army is not an environmentally friendly organiza- tion. Frankly, it is not designed to be. For good rea- sons, the Army focuses on the most effective means to dominate an enemy on the battlefield. However, in the course of this endeavor, the turbine engines that pow- er helicopters and tanks burn thousands of pounds of JP-8 fuel per hour. Every time one of those turbine en- gines is shut off almost a pint of jet fuel is dumped over- board onto the ground. The munitions used in training rain lead and explosive residue into range complexes across the country. Armored vehicles churn up the soil in maneuver areas and contribute to erosion and sed- iment run off into streams. In myriad offices across the force, thousands of pages of PowerPoint presentations are printed off every day, simply to be thrown away af- ter the briefing. In short, the Army is an environmental disaster. Incidentally, this makes the Army a likely target of social mobilization (see above).

    Given the magnitude and variety of climate change-re- lated challenges, what specific actions can be under- taken by leaders of the U.S. Army today? We now turn to this question.

    Part 2: Recommendations

    This section describes recommendations for climate change-related actions by the U.S. Army. We summa- rize each recommendation in terms of timing of imple- mentation (Now, 1-5 years, 6-10 years, or beyond 10 years), and we characterize the resourcing require- ments associated with it. “Low” resourcing assumes no substantive additional resources are required to imple- ment the recommendation. “Moderate” resourcing as- sumes that some reprogramming is needed, up to $100 million over a five-year period. “High” means that the recommendation requires substantive appropriations, in excess of $100 million over a five-year period. All re- source projections are estimates.

    Hydration in a Contested Arid Environment

    The U.S. Army is precipitously close to mission failure concerning hydration of the force in a contested arid environment. The experience and best practices of the last 17 years of conflict in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and Africa rely heavily on logistics force structures to sup- port the warfighter with water mostly procured through contracted means of bottled water, local wells and Re- verse Osmosis Water Purification Units (ROWPU). The Army must reinvest aggressively in technologies both in-house and commercial off the shelf in the next 5-10 years to keep pace with rising global temperatures, es- pecially those arid areas in or poised for conflict. The Army must seek partnerships with industry, other na- tions, and other militaries currently working on the hy- dration issue.

    The Army must re-examine its planning approach to the hydration issue. The table below comes from the Command and General Staff College Student Text, The- ater Sustainment Battle book. The ability to supply this amount of water in the most demanding environment is costly in money, personnel, infrastructure, and force structure.125 (See Table 2.) The calculations for water (8.34 pounds per gallon) in an arid environment equates to 66 pounds of water per soldier.

    RECOMMENDATION AREA 1: THE ARMY OPERATING ENVIRONMENT

    Problem: Hydration Challenges in a Contested Environment

    Recommendation: The Army must develop ad- vanced technologies to capture ambient hu- midity and transition technology from the United States Army Research, Development, and Engi- neering Command (RDECOM) that supports the water sustainment tenants of decentralizing and embedded, harvest water, and recycle and re- use.

    bility Needs Assessment Process. The objective is to develop technologies enabling a logistics transforma- tion in the area of water sustainment by reducing the water distribution and storage load. Without technol- ogy advances, water remains 30%-40% of the force sustainment requirement. The reduction encompasses the water storage load on combat platforms, the Sol- dier, tactical systems, and current and future force wa- ter distribution requirements. The Army must develop advanced technologies to capture ambient humidity and transition technology from the United States Army Research, Development, and Engineering Command (RDECOM) that supports the water sustainment ten- ants of decentralizing and embedded, harvest water, and recycle and reuse. This technology enables wa- ter production capability to be embedded in platforms (possibility trailer mounted systems) creating distribut- ed water production that reduces resupply and storage requirements and supports a self-sustainment concept of 3 to 7 days without resupply. The objective is achiev- ing 7 gallons of water produced for every one gallon of fuel used.127

    The U.S. army must take aggressive steps to manage the risk of emerging technologies. As with any emerging technology, there is a risk. There is a risk in the level of investment of both finances and resources. The amount of time given to the research versus the payoff. The haz- ard of hydration is identified and through investment, research and development, and partnerships, controls can be emplaced to mitigate, monitor, and ultimately re- duce the risk.

    The Department of the Army must seek partnerships with foreign regional militaries and organizations who have proven the ability to operate in an arid environ- ment and leverage these techniques and apply them to U.S. military operations. Investments already by the Marine Corps in 2012 proved their worth. The Individual Water Purification System Block II allowed Marines to

    Current planning methodologies remain heavily vested in bottled water meaning a more considerable force is needed to transport it. As of the 2017 Modified Tables of Occupation and Equipment (MTOE), most units retain some level of water storage or transportation based on force structure. This structure makes sense and requires continuation. This structure only works through the sup- plying of potable water by support units or through lo- cally procured methods. Force structure will not fix this problem. Very few Army units have water generation ca- pabilities, and as of 2015, Brigade Combat Teams can no longer organically support their water needs. The additional units needed to support them creates an un- supportable logistical footprint and reduces the speed of the combat units.

    Researchers at Ft. Lee, VA, with the Combined Arms Support Command (CASCOM), in the Petroleum and Water Department, believe water generation is one of the leading fields for material approaches in the Capa-

    self-purify water directly from the source. This system reduces weight and logistics supporting an ever-grow- ing expeditionary force.128 In the 2000s in Iraq, over 864,000 bottles of water were consumed each month at one Forward Operating Base (FOB) with that number doubling during hotter months.129 Reducing the depen- dence on bottled water dramatically reduces the num- ber of logistics formations freeing up that force structure for deliberate operations. Further reducing the cost of water was the Army’s expenditures in the past for the Lightweight Water Purifier Units. This system developed in early 2002 by MECO Defense cut the price of a gallon of water from $5.00 to $.07.130

    The Army must look at commercial, off-the-shelf (COTS) technologies to create a more self-sufficient warfighter. One of the most recent developments is in the area of at- mospheric water gathering. Some researchers estimate there may be as much as 13 trillion liters of water in the air. Previous techniques have proven costly to operate regarding fuel. There is a newer device called a water harvester. Using metal-organic frameworks (MOF), sci- entists are creating a reaction to force water vapor in the air to condense producing 3 liters of water for every liter

    Figure 6: Illustration of a micro water collector132

    Ironically, Dr. Jay Dusenberry and his team at the U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research Development & Engi- neering Center (TARDEC), as early as 2003, worked on similar technology.133 His opinion is an approach which focuses on multiple technologies such as small unit purifiers, desalinization, and reverse osmosis to sup- plement an atmospheric water gatherer. This is another capability that allows units to produce their own water. This paired with the water harvesting or mounted on a robot may provide complementary capabilities that would support sustainment for units over a wide range of operational scenarios and environmental conditions. He stresses the goal must be to produce as much water as possible at the point of need.

    The U.S. Army continues to make great strides on ways to reduce its dependency on this time-proven supply

    process, but current funding priorities potentially will de- rail this effort in the areas of research and development. The technologies are appearing in the private sector which requires assimilation into the military formations. Force structure alone will not solve this problem. Sol- diers operating in contested arid environments with re- duced water sources need the ability to collect water from the atmosphere. Local procurement of water may not be safe or accessible due to conflict. The technolo- gy research being recommended could reduce conflict if placed in these water-challenged areas reducing or eliminating the need for U.S. military presence. The is- sue may well be served by the Cross Functional Teams (CFTs) model to address this dilemma aggressively.

    on research, development and fielding of vehicles and equipment that have a decreased environmental impact and are able to transit the Arctic terrain effectively.

    In terms of resource allocation requirements for the force, implementation for expansion of Arctic capabil- ities and capacity is a low to moderate priority in the near to mid-term. This priority increases to high from the mid to long term horizon. Correspondingly, the resourc- es required for implementation of these recommenda- tions also increase over time. Increased training and doctrine development are simply a reprioritization of existing resources, focused on burgeoning capabilities. In the mid-term, materiel solutions and augmentation of navigation capabilities for the Arctic are moderately resource intensive. Finally, the research, development and fielding of low environmental impact equipment with enhanced Arctic capabilities is very resource inten- sive and will require compromises and a realization of the increased importance of Arctic security.

    The Arctic remains at the forefront of the earth’s climate adaptation and variances in the global climate are most noticeable in the Arctic region. Increased accessibility to the region for economic activity will consequently increase the security requirements and competition in the region. Currently Russia is rapidly expanding their Arctic military capabilities and capacity.134 The U.S. mili- tary must immediately begin expanding its capability to operate in the Artic to defend economic interests and to partner with allies across the region.

    The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s 2014 report illustrating the Representative Concentra- tion Pathway (RCP) 4.5 model shows the Arctic Region anomalous temperature change through 2050 from +3 up to +6 degrees Celsius, more than any other area on the globe.135 This rapid climate change will continue to

  • Problem: Lack of adequate preparation and coherence in doctrine, training, and capabil- ities development to support effective Arctic operations.

    Recommendation: The Army and the Depart- ment of Defense must begin planning and im- plementing changes to training, equipment, doctrine and capabilities in anticipation of an ex- panded role in the Arctic associated with global climate adaptation.

    Implementation Timing: Now to 10+ Years. Resource Requirements: Moderate to High.

    Beginning immediately, the Army should implement Arctic training for a greater number of units to increase potential Arctic force capacity. In addition, the Army must focus on immediate doctrine development that will facilitate operations in remote and extreme environ- ments. In the mid-term, over the five to ten-year span, the Army should focus on materiel solutions to operat- ing in environmental extremes, coupled with execution of more environmentally friendly training practices. To enhance operational effectiveness, DoD must increase GPS satellite distribution to augment Arctic coverage and provide enhanced navigation capabilities through the establishment of eLORAN throughout U.S. and allied Arctic regions. Finally, long term focus must be placed

    result in increased shipping transiting the Arctic,136 pop- ulation shifts to the region and increased competition to extract the vast hydrocarbon resources more readily available as the ice sheets contract.137 These changes will drive an expansion of security efforts from nations across the region as they vie to claim and protect the economic resources of the region.

    In this role, the Army must be trained and equipped to operate across vast distances in extremely remote and inhospitable terrain. Choosing not to prioritize resources to this effort puts the Army at substantial risk. Simply put, the competition for resources in the Arctic will increase security requirements and the potential for conflict. The Army will not be excluded from those requirements or any conflict that develops. The Army will simply be un- prepared for the mission and the environment in which it will occur. This results in a significantly increased risk to mission as well as to personnel and equipment. Further risk is entailed with respect to service competition for re- sources. As Russian activity expands in the Arctic, both the Navy and the Air Force will compete for resources to meet the Russian threat. The Army must compete as well, not only to simply gain resources, but, moreover, to be ready to contribute as a member of the joint force.

    There are three primary timelines associated with these recommendations: near term (immediate to 5 years), mid-term (5-10 years) and long term (beyond 10 years). Generally speaking, the investment associated with im- plementing the recommendation corresponds with the timeline, with more immediate recommendations being less cost intensive than longer term ones.

    The first near term recommendation is to simply in- crease the number of soldiers and units exposed to

    syr/.

    training in the Arctic environment. The extreme climate and remoteness of the region requires specialized training that is currently available to only a small num- ber of Army soldiers. This expansion in training must be accompanied by development of doctrine that ad- dresses how brigades will fight in remote environments. In a wide area security mission in the Arctic’s vast ex- panse, a brigade will be expected to defend a much wider area, forcing battalions to operate in a more au- tonomous mode, removed from bases of supply and centralized command nodes. Expanding area coverage requirements will drive the development of advanced persistent sensors, both air and ground based, that can operate in extreme climactic environments to enable the brigades and battalions to detect enemies and maneu- ver to counter potential attacks.

    These near-term recommendations do not require a great deal of immediate investment. Primarily, the Army would need to reprioritize training funding to expand throughput and attendance at Arctic training areas. Additional investment would be required for sensor development, but the current capabilities both in the inventory and in commercial applications are not far removed from those the Army will require to meet near- term needs.

    The mid-term recommendations will require close co- ordination between the Army and other elements of the DoD. The first series of recommendations concerns materials engineering solutions to problems associated with current equipment in cold weather environments. For example, the current rotary wing fleet has many re- strictions on cold weather operations concerning bat- tery usage and life as well as requirements for auxiliary power unit (APU) operations and fragility of elastomeric bearings in the tail rotor sections. These restrictions are easily mitigated when conducting operations from con- trolled environment hangars but will severely hamper maneuver operations from austere locations.

    Next, in conjunction with the other services, the Army must expand search and rescue capabilities in the Arc- tic. An increase in population, economic activity and

    30

    unit training will increase requirements for search and rescue assets. Recently the Army has abdicated prima- ry search and rescue responsibilities to the Air Force, as the proponent for combat search and rescue. Howev- er, the Army should expand capabilities and training to minimize response time for contingencies.

    Additionally, in conjunction with the DoD and other ser- vices, the Army must invest in expanding Arctic naviga- tion capabilities. Lack of GPS differential, ionospheric storms and low angle satellite intervisibility combine to reduce the effectiveness of GPS at high latitudes.138 The DoD can mitigate this risk through augmentation of the GPS satellite fleet that will enable greater GPS differen- tial to increase geolocation accuracy. Furthermore, es- tablishment of eLORAN land-based navigation facilities to augment satellite aided navigation will ensure both accuracy and redundancy for operation in remote Arctic areas. Consideration should also be given to the limita- tions of satellite aided communications in the Arctic as any geosynchronous platform will experience the same limitations as the GPS satellites.

    Finally, in the mid-term the Army must focus on reduc- ing the environmental impact of training. The Arctic will remain a delicate environment that the public looks to as “unspoiled” wilderness. Operations that damage or degrade the environment will foster a negative view of the Army and must be mitigated through careful training execution that minimizes the risk of petroleum spills and localizes training impacts to the smallest area possible. There are further recommendations associated with this challenge for long term consideration.

    Taken together, these mid-term recommendations will require moderate investment to bring to fruition. Mate- rial solutions to cold weather operating challenges are available for many of the Army’s current platforms, how- ever those materials will need extensive testing to incor-

    1. “Polar Regions.” The Swedish Club: International Marine In- surance. Accessed April 16, 2018. https://www.swedishclub.com/ loss-prevention/trading-area/polar-regions/.

    porate into those platforms. Additionally, it is critical that those material solutions be viable across the spectrum of operational conditions as it is not realistic, for exam- ple, to install different batteries, APUs and bearings for different environments across the rotary wing fleet. Expanded search and rescue capabilities and capac- ity will require investment in both equipment and train- ing. However, the equipment required is available either within other services or is currently in use in commercial applications. The most cost intensive of the mid-term recommendations is augmentation to navigation and communication capabilities. However, these costs can be somewhat mitigated through normal satellite attri- tion and replacement with upgraded capabilities. Ad- ditionally, low earth orbit (LEO) satellite options can be employed that simply augment coverage in the Arctic region. LEO satellites are less expensive to deploy and limited capabilities for a limited coverage area may de- crease per unit costs.

    The final recommendation considers long-term solu- tions to the challenge of increased operations in the Arctic. As previously discussed, the austere and remote nature of the Arctic, as well as the vast area under con- sideration will require units to operate in a much larger area than current doctrine dictates. This will significantly stress the Army’s logistics capability to support those units in an environment with little transportation infra- structure. To mitigate this, the Army must invest in plat- forms that are far more fuel efficient or that operate off of alternative energy sources. A diminishing reliance on hy- drocarbon-based fuels will not only decrease logistical requirements but will also decrease the environmental impact of operations in the Arctic. These developments can put the Army at the forefront of environmental stew- ardship and ensure that the public remains firmly rooted behind the Army’s efforts.

    In conjunction with development of new fuel sources, the Army must explore vehicles more well-suited to Arctic maneuver. Thawing of the permafrost will create large expanses of bogs and marshes across many ar- eas of the Arctic. In addition, though the globe is warm- ing, extreme weather conditions will persist in the Arctic.

    31

    The Army needs to focus on the development of an in- fantry carrier vehicle with low surface pressure to maxi- mize maneuverability in adverse terrain. An amphibious capable vehicle that has high weight distribution char- acteristics across the drive (either wheeled or tracked) contact patches will increase the speed of maneuver necessary for units to conduct wide area security across greater coverage areas.

    These long-term recommendations will require signifi- cant investment to come to fruition. Research and de- velopment of new fuels and a new class of vehicles is a long lead time requirement that the Army must begin investing in now. However, the research into new fuels or energy sources can be shared across the services and is already underway in many cases. Commercial companies are also well invested in these capabilities already. Public demand is driving innovation in this field and will help mitigate costs for the Army in development and fielding.

    that awards the unit that brings in the most waste to

    the recycling facility. This program, however, is a great

    example of one of the obstacles to environmental con-

    sciousness in the Army. In order for a unit to receive an

    annual award that may amount to $500 deposited into

    the unit’s Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) fund,

    every soldier in the unit must make the individual effort

    to identify those items eligible for recycling, separate

    their trash and then dispose of that trash in a special

    receptacle. The unit must then transport that refuse to

    the post recycling facility for credit. This is a classic ex-

    Action.

    tion, but not to the individual and therefore the individual does not see the direct benefits of his efforts to recycle. Whatever events may be sponsored from the MWR fund would likely occur anyway. The only benefit of the re- cycling award is that potentially the soldier may get an extra hamburger at the MWR picnic. This is not much of an incentive. Creating and promulgating a culture of environmental stewardship throughout an organization as vast and diverse as the Army will take years, and the tide of public opinion shows no signs of slowing.

    The Army’s norms and values must change.141 The Army does not have a set of norms that promotes environ- mental stewardship or leadership where it is in the best interest of the force. To create these, the underlying as- sumptions that focus simply on the ends must change to consider the ways. Edgar Schein maintains that those assumptions are based on deeper dimensions such as

    1. Olson, Mancur. The Logic of Collective Action: Public Goods and Theory of Groups, 2nd ed. Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 1971. Olson argued that in a large, or what he called latent, organization, rewards and punishment used to incentivize a greater good must be administered at the private level to incur direct costs or consequences associated with a given behavior.

    Problem: The Lack of a Culture of Environmen- tal Stewardship

    Recommendation: Army leadership must create a culture of environmental consciousness, stay ahead of societal demands for environmental stewardship and serve as a leader for the na- tion or it risks endangering the broad support it now enjoys. Cultural change is a senior leader responsibility.

    Implementation Timing: Now Resource Requirements: Low

    reality, truth and human activity.142 These are the same challenges echoed in climate change debates today.

    The youth of the military is a powerful potential source of cultural change. If the younger population as a whole is more environmentally conscious in the United States, it stands to reason that the younger members of the military will be as well. However, the military as a highly hierarchical organization is resistant to the adoption of innovative input from lower ranking and younger indi- viduals.

    Army leaders can achieve the necessary cultural change through what Schein calls embedding and reinforcing mechanisms. “Embedding mechanisms emplace the assumptions into an organization,” while “reinforcing mechanisms…support the embedded assumptions.”143 Schein’s first embedding mechanism are those things that leaders pay attention to or measure on a regular basis. If Army leaders, for example, rewarded units with the lowest per soldier energy consumption in the bar- racks, that may create lower energy consumption. To use another embedding mechanism in this example, if the reward was a day room in the barracks outfitted with the latest Xbox or PlayStation, a UHD 70” OLED TV and the fastest Wi-Fi, the soldiers would see the benefit of reduced individual electricity consumption through a reward that they can individually appreciate. Finally, perhaps the most effective embedding mechanism is for Army leaders to put their money where their mouth is. How the Army chooses to allocate future resources will communicate to the soldiers where the real focus lies. Significant increases in the budget for simulations as well as R&D for alternative fuels and energy efficient platforms will help anchor the organizational changes into the long-term culture of the Army.

    To support these embedding mechanisms, Schein sug- gests aligned reinforcing mechanisms, without which “cultural change is much more difficult, if not impossi-

  • ble”.144 The first of these is a change to organizational design or structure necessary to support the cultural change. An example of this might be to decrease fu- ture investments in logistical support capacity to match decreased support requirements achieved through in- creased fuel efficiency. These investments could then be redirected into developing additional combat capac- ity or capability.

    Another important mechanism is the design of physi- cal spaces and buildings. A focus on energy efficient design and renewable energy sources will reinforce a sense of conservation and efficiency. Couple this tac- tic with formal statements of mission and organization- al philosophy that include references to environmen- tal stewardship posted on the ubiquitous unit bulletin boards will support the foundational assumptions put in place by the embedding mechanisms.

    The Army is at a crossroads. The current administra- tion may have backed out of the Paris Accords, but the majority of the American people believe that climate change is a threat. Steps taken now can put the Army on a path to lead the nation in preparedness and envi- ronmental awareness. At the same time, the Army may come to recognize environmental awareness, not as an add-on, but as a core strategy to ensure the force is leveraging all insights possible for war-fighting and U.S. preparedness. Alternatively, the Army can continue its present trajectories, ignoring the myriad existing and potential threats that result from climate change and environmental concerns more broadly, including alien- ation of youth, allies and voters on whose largesse it depends, hurtling through the night in the belief that it is as unsinkable as the Titanic.

    Problem: Potential disruptions to readiness due to restrictions on fuel use.

    Recommendation: The Army must significantly increase investment in more realistic simulation that incorporates the advances in virtual and augmented reality. It should also continue to in- vest in the development of lower CO2 emissions platforms and systems.

    Implementation Timing: 6-10 years (VR/AR), 10+ years (alternate energy platforms).

    Resource Requirements: Moderate to High.

    The Army must significantly increase investment in more

    realistic simulation that incorporates the advances in

    virtual reality. The current resistance to greater simula-

    tion in training is primarily based on a lack of simulation

    realism.

    cate the sights, sounds, smells and feel of weapons, platforms and situations is developing rapidly. The Army is at risk of being left behind.

    This change will impact nearly every facet of Army op- erations today. Nothing is likely to fully replace field training in the foreseeable future. However, the Army must invest now in developing future capabilities. The required investments cross the entire range of activities, from administration to training to combat.

    Currently Army investment in virtual training is primarily based on the Virtual Battle Space (VBS) simulation plat- form that most of industry has already abandoned in favor of the Unity platform, “the engine of choice among virtual reality developers”.146 The Army is not investing enough in simulations to be agile and change with the industry, or to command industry trends.

  • tional Defense Authorization Act authorizes nearly $700 billion in military spending for the year, yet industry ex- pects the entire U.S. military to invest only $48.9 billion in simulations through 2025.147 Greater simulation in- vestment can create overall budget savings. Depending on the airframe, training in flight simulators costs only 5-20% the cost of operating the actual platform.148 Be- yond the environmental impact, increased investment in simulations can result in decreased training costs, lon- ger life for the actual platforms, an increased opportu- nity for training repetitions and improvements in acqui- sition through better environments for prototyping and new platform integration.

    Finally, the Army’s primary platforms, its weapons sys- tems and the vehicles, are not designed for energy and fuel efficiency or to minimize the impact to the environ- ment. Alternative fuel research and new technologies that limit emissions and increase fuel efficiency are ex- pensive. The slow pace of military acquisition ensures that development and integration of these technologies into future platforms will be laborious and incremental. However, if current requirement documents do not re- flect an organizational drive to change the environmen- tal footprint of future systems, the Army will remain de- cades behind the public demands.

    RECOMMENDATION AREA 3: THE JOINT FORCE AND DoD

    Problem: Lack of coordination and consolida- tion in climate-change related intelligence.

    Recommendation: Advocate for a comprehen- sive organization, functional manager, technol- ogy, and process review study to identify the current state of intelligence community agencies with regard to climate change, with the goal of formalizing Interagency coordination on Climate Change-related intelligence.

    Implementation Timing: Now Resourcing Requirements: Low

    To support and improve interagency collaboration in the Intelligence Community (IC), the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) should initially assign an office and/or National Intelligence Manager (NIM) with the requisite authority and budget to coordinate and champion climate change endeavors within the IC and greater interagency. This office and/or NIM should man- age a comprehensive organization, functional manag- er, technology, and process review study to identify the current state of IC agencies regarding climate change. Following the completion of the review, an IC-wide Cli- mate Change strategy should be developed.149

    The IC should dedicate collection, targeting, and anal- ysis resources into monitoring global geo-engineering technologies and state-programs. This area of technol- ogy focus and growth is expected to continue globally; this topic, therefore, should be added to the National Intelligence Priorities Framework (NIPF). 150

  • The IC should partner with allied nations on the collec- tion and analysis of climate-related intelligence. This partnership should be included in existing partner en- gagement programs.

    The National Intelligence Council should lead and en- sure the reoccurring completion of a National Intelli- gence Estimate or akin intelligence assessment for use across the United States and partner governments, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), industry, and academic institutions. The Defense Intelligence Agen- cy – in coordination with the Department of Defense – should lead and ensure the reoccurring completion of a Defense Intelligence Assessment on climate change drivers that are expected to affect the security environ- ment globally. Both assessments should identify threats and opportunities for the National Security apparatus.

    DoD Combatant Command theater and operational plans could be improved by including climate and re- lated systems which affect the security environment into existing processes like, Joint Intelligence Preparation of the Environment (JIPOE), Infectious Disease Risk As- sessments, and Country Cooperation Plans.151 Inclu- sion of climate change data into existing and comple- mentary intelligence planning processes would improve the Joint Planning Process and meet DoD’s statutory requirements.

    Initial resourcing for IC expansion to include climate change into existing products and processes is expect- ed to be minimal. IC, DoD and natural science agencies are manned to react to burgeoning national security is- sues. Sensor improvement that can better collect on cli- mate change and related driver issues can be included in requirement generation for future programs.

    In terms of a NIM or like office to champion this issue in the IC, the ODNI may need to provide an initial allotment

    of NIP funds for 2-3 years until programmatic can be determined.

    The National Intelligence Council identified climate change and related drivers of instability were identified as a global trend with implications for the national se- curity environment by 2035.152 The IC and DoD are the responsible government-arms to observe, track, as- sess, and respond to national security threats that are increasingly emanating from climate change drivers.

    While climate change and related drivers are expected to increasing affect and change the global landscape, there is still time. Initial investments in the next 5-10 years will ensure applicable government department and agencies are right fit for the future.

    Secretary of Defense Mattis stated, “I agree that the ef- fects of a changing climate – such as increased mari- time access to the arctic, rising sea levels, desertifica- tion, among others– impact our security situation.“ To respond to these security implications he then indicat- ed, “It is appropriate for the Combatant Commands to incorporate drivers of instability that impact the security environment in their areas into planning.” The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Joseph Dunford, explained military forces may have to be prepositioned globally to respond to natural disasters and other crises that are as a result of climate change. 153

    In June 2016, CIA Director John Brennan spoke at the Council on Foreign Relations, stating, “An Stratospher- ic Aerosol Injection (SAI) program could limit global temperature increases, reducing some risks associat- ed with higher temperatures and providing the world economy additional time to transition from fossil fuels. The process is also relatively inexpensive—the National

  • Research Council estimates that a fully deployed SAI program would cost about $10 billion yearly.” 154

    The last two National Defense Authorization Acts and In- telligence Authorization Act noted climate change, food system security and stability, and other related issues that affect the IC and DoD’s missions. These Congres- sional acts require the IC and DoD to study, analyze, and identify where these emerging areas affect their mission areas and the security environment.

    Problem: Lack of Organizational Account- ability for Climate-Change Related Activities

    Recommendation: Re-commit to the Senior En- ergy and Sustainability Council (SESC). Add a resourcing element to the council by providing the USA and VCSA with funding across each POM cycle to support climate-related projects that improve readiness and resiliency of the force.

    Implementation Timing: Now, 1-10 Years

    Resource Requirements: Low, though potential- ly moderate through reprogramming.

    There are a variety of options for rallying an organization around a mission. For enduring issues, the goal should be to institutionalize the thought. In other words, cre- ate a culture where military and civilians regularly con- sider how their mission could be impacted by climate change. The goal for enduring issues should also be to institutionalize the process, so that the mission does not get disconnected from the normal battle rhythm of a bureaucracy. When a disconnection happens, these missions lose visibility, prioritization, and oftentimes, re- sourcing.

    Climate change will present a challenge to the Army and

    the DoD for decades to come. With readiness as the number one priority, mitigating the disruption caused by extreme weather activity should be included amongst the Army’s goals. The Army must be able to train, fight, and win across all domains and in all environments. To do this will take a collective effort to ensure a wide range of missions are able to support the needs of the force.

    Considering the challenges presented by climate change, the Army should re-energize the Senior En- ergy and Sustainability Council (SESC) within the next six to twelve months. This cross-functional council can address complex, ambiguous problems routinely and ensure its recommendations are integrated across the organization. As the proponent for SESC, ASA IE&E already collaborates as-needed across the enterprise. SESC Council of Colonels level meetings are held pe- riodically, but this is not a decision-making forum. A quarterly meeting at the General Officer Steering Com- mittee (GOSC) and a semi-annual meeting with the Un- der Secretary of the Army and Vice Chief of Staff of the Army, will signal the importance of the issue, improve its visibility, and provide direction on prioritization of ef- forts. Policy drives resources, and a senior leader-driv- en council can shape how the Army operates in what will become one of the Army’s future challenges. And for the Secretary of the Army and the Chief of Staff of the Army, the SESC will be their center of gravity for “All Things Climate Change.” It will provide them with an organization that will: ensure their priorities are being addressed; oversee what the Army is doing to address climate change; and make strategic decisions about where to invest and take risk.

    The Army should also add a resourcing element to the council by providing the USA and VCSA with funding across each POM cycle to support climate-related projects that improve readiness and resiliency of the force. The SESC could champion innovation by having funds available for organizations to compete to have cli- mate-related projects. With an ability to resource proj- ects, the SESC has the ability to make tangible changes on the ground that affect the force and local communi- ties. Although it is difficult to predict when an extreme

    weather event will occur or how it will affect military op- erations, the Army must leverage the knowledge and resources it has to build resilience across the force. As retired General Martin Dempsey noted, “[w]e need to act based on the information we have, not remain immobile waiting for ‘better options’ to emerge.”155 Se- nior leader involvement will be key in creating a resilient force of the future.

    Problem: Lack of Climate Change-Oriented Campaign Planning and Preparation

    Recommendation: (A) Develop Bangladesh Re- lief Campaign Plan as notional plan for prepar- ing for broader climate change-related require- ments. (B) Work more closely with the CDC to ensure appropriate military support to infectious disease treatment and containment.

    Implementation Timing: Now Resource Requirement: Low

    Bangladesh Crisis Campaign Plan

    Climate change is likely to cause an increase in cata- strophic climatic events. Some of these events, such as tropical cyclones, will have an acute impact on the affected residents of any given region. Others, such as relative sea level rise and increased desertification, will have a more long-lasting effect. Even acute incidents, given an increasing frequency and severity, may have impacts on the population that are more chronic in ef- fect. The result of these events is likely to manifest itself in increased population migration to escape the desta- bilization brought on by climate change.

    The DoD is unlikely to dedicate significant resources to better preparing the force for humanitarian and di- saster response (HADR) missions. However, it should analyze areas where climate change events are likely to exacerbate other political, economic or social issues

    and where the scale of the potential human migration will tip the balance toward conflict and mass humanitar- ian strife. In other words, those areas where the United States will be compelled to respond. After an analysis to determine those areas at greatest risks, the Army should develop a campaign plan-like approach to mit- igate future risk and to set conditions for a more suc- cessful response, if necessary.

    The U.S. should immediately initiate a campaign plan to mitigate the effects of future crises and set conditions for more effective assistance. We recommend devel- oping a campaign based on the notional scenario of a massive, permanent dislocation of the population of Bangladesh, rated as the planet’s most at risk country from climate change, according to Verisk Maplecroft, a global risk analysis firm.156 Additionally, Germanwatch, funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, rates Bangladesh as already the sixth most impacted country from climate events in the last 20 years.157 Other factors also com- bine to create an even greater probability that the Unit- ed States would intervene if a humanitarian disaster struck Bangladesh.

    As discussed above, nearly 160 million people live in Bangladesh, nearly half of them at sea level.158 Sea level rise and alluvial subsidence has resulted in a relative sea level rise for the delta of approximately 1.5 meters since 1960.159 Both Al-Qaeda and affiliates of ISIS are currently active in Bangladesh.160 In summary, 80 million

Ban- gladesh’s neighbor, India, is a nuclear armed country persistently in conflict with Pakistan and with which the United States is trying to forge stronger ties to counter Chinese regional influence. These factors will drive U.S. involvement in any crisis.

    This approach is not resource intensive but will signifi- cantly reduce mission risk. The military, in conjunction with interagency partners such as the State Department and USAID, should immediately establish liaison teams to work closely with the Bangladeshis to understand their plan to deal with internal migration and the resourc- es they have available. After this analysis the U.S. can offer assistance to strengthen the resilience of govern- ment agencies and provide training for the Bangladeshi military. The Army Corps of Engineers, in conjunction with multi-national partners, can assist the Bangladesh- is in determining what effective steps to take that can slow the effects of relative sea level rise. Through the State Department the U.S. should work with the Indian Government to establish a crisis response team with Bangladesh to help ensure mass migration does not result in conflict. Humanitarian relief supplies should be prepositioned at Diego Garcia to speed the response effort. In addition to interagency efforts, the U.S. should reach out to multi-national partners to determine what kind of coalition can be built to respond to the region, preventing the inefficient and piecemeal collaboration of an ad hoc coalition.

    This is just a short list of the many steps the U.S. can take in an area where future intervention is highly like- ly. Through analysis, the U.S. can determine where, globally, campaign plans should be instituted so that the response efforts are less the execution of a hastily assembled contingency plan and more the sequenced execution of a resourced and ready plan.

    Infectious Disease Treatment and Containment Support

    The research in this report indicates a greater likelihood for outbreaks of vector borne infectious diseases world- wide, including in the United States. The Intergovern- mental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) research us- ing Representative Concentration Pathways (RCP) 4.5 data (the midrange prediction of climate change used throughout this report) predicts areas in the Southeast- ern U.S. will see an increase in precipitation of .5-.8 mm/ day and an increase in average annual temperatures of 1-3 degrees Celsius by 2050.161 This change will likely allow the proliferation of disease vectors (such as mos- quitoes and ticks) over a wider area than they currently inhabit and limit Winter kills of the vectors, resulting in a larger population to spread any diseases. This phe- nomenon is likely to increase the incidence of diseases such as Zika, West Nile Virus, Lyme disease and many others, some of which may be previously unseen in the U.S. As the largest source of potential capacity and ca- pability to respond to widespread disease outbreaks in the United States, the military should be prepared to execute defense support to civil authority (DSCA) mis- sions of this type.

    The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta, Geor- gia undoubtedly has robust and detailed plans for wide- spread disease response. The Army, through the DoD, must liaise closely with the CDC and the IC to determine the validity of the plans and the expectations of the mil- itary in assisting in the response. Response to disease outbreaks generally follows two tracks, containment and treatment. From a military standpoint, containment of the disease resembles wide area security operations, and treatment is a robust logistics effort. The Army ex- cels at these tasks.

    To ensure proactive response, the active force, in sup- port of Reserve Component units, should predetermine locations for key logistics nodes throughout the areas

    most at risk. These nodes will requires APODs, rail links and robust highway systems to speed the deployment of equipment and materials. Appropriate medical facil- ities should be identified capable of providing patient isolation and those areas lacking that capability must be identified. Army assets can fill those capability gaps in more remote areas.

    Climate change is introducing an increased risk of in- fectious disease to the U.S. population. It is increasing- ly not a matter of “if” but of when there will be a large outbreak. The U.S. Army will be called upon to assist in much the same way it was called upon in other disas- ters. Detailed coordination with local, state and federal agencies in the most high risk regions will hasten re- sponse time and minimize risk to mission.

The DoD should pursue options to reverse infrastructure degra- dation around military installations, including funding internal power generation such as solar/ battery farms and small-nuclear reactors.

    The susceptibilities of the power grid to climate effects should drive the DoD to pursue options to reverse in- frastructure degradation around military installations and ensure that cutting edge strategies for decentral- ized power generation and storage are employed. Con- tracts with utilities, including rural electric cooperatives now thought to be especially vulnerable, should con- tain requirements that mandate tougher cyber security

    protocols to limit damage done by the intensive cyber assaults the grid is currently sustaining, and ideally, to preclude further attack to the US electrical grid. This could reduce exposure to fluctuations in the survivabil- ity of military capability.162 The ability to enable safety protocols like Faraday cages would prevent a massive grid failure in the event of a cascading grid collapse al- lowing for a logical and orderly redistribution of critical power where needed. The development of new options for replacing crucial extra high voltage large power transformers damaged by age and overload will remain essential due to year-long lead times for construction and production of this unique equipment existing out- side the country. Additional infrastructure challenges lie in the lack of heavy lift capacity, bridges, and roadways needed to transport these transformers, given each

    weighing between 200 and 300 tons.

    ment of a domestic production capability for these large transformers or innovative new, lighter technologies for replacing those systems remain a significant barrier to recovery from a widespread power outage. Distributed technologies that are hardened to cyber-attack, such as solar installations, may reduce several major classes of vulnerability simultaneously.

    One option that has met with success stems from the Smart Power Infrastructure Demonstration for Ener- gy Reliability and Security (SPIDERS) Joint Capability Technology Demonstration (JCTD). The purpose of the test was to improve cyber security around installations, bolster survivability during a blackout using a microgrid and smart grid technology demo and share that knowl- edge with the non-military services infrastructure sup- porting the test locations. Successful test results hold promise for investment on military installations across

Adoption of this concept generates the possibly for integration of renewable, like micro-nuclear reactors, and other distributed energy generation concepts to increase endurance during a natural or man-made widespread outage of the pow- er grid.164 Addition of a SPIDERS infrastructure extends beyond military installations and local communities as cyber security improvements could also lead to protec- tion of uplink and downlink stations thus improving resil- ience of space borne assets from infection.

    The results of the SPIDERS JCTD highlight the impor- tance of infrastructure investment and decisions at DoD facilities while reducing the unacceptably high risk of an extended outage of the power grid. The original SPI- DERS initiative launched under the co-sponsorship of the DoD, Department of Energy (DOE), and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and demonstrated the sur- vivability of an installation protected by a cyber secure micro-grid, smart grid technologies and investment in infrastructure modifications. The SPIDERS technology delivered capabilities tied to power generation reliability, installation and cyber security, reduction of energy costs while being cost effective, and minimizing environmen- tal impacts, all goals the DoD seeks to achieve.165

    The Joint Staff can further signal their support to Con- gress by addressing this need through use of the Joint Risk Assessment Framework to develop a prioritized list of critical DoD infrastructure necessary to defend the homeland and execute Joint Strategic Capabilities Plan-directed contingency operations. Upon completion of this list and with SPIDERS funding approval, each af- fected Service can execute necessary activities to hard- en their networks, infrastructure, and power generation capabilities thus protecting military installations from cy- ber, physical, or coordinated attacks; electromagnetic

    The SPIDERS implementation across the Services promises to lessen the impacts of a U.S. power grid loss while hardening cyber protections to critical re- sponse capabilities. The NORTHCOM and PACOM Combatant Commands, Congress, and the Services’ working together in support of this critical initiative en- able a change in prioritization of infrastructure security, often overlooked, within the defense budget. The cost is such that, with the proper advocacy, a key vulnerability to the homeland defense mission becomes manage- able and the Department of Defense priority of protect- ing the homeland is realized.

    well as increases to the overall average water tempera- ture used to cool nuclear reactors. This plan should include projections of fiscal resources and military tri- tium requirements needed to maintain and modernize the U.S. nuclear stockpile. It should also include U.S. government requirements for use of helium-3, a decay product of tritium used primarily for neutron detection when searching for special nuclear material (SNM) and

    enforcing nuclear non-proliferation agreements.

    Currently, the Department of Energy conducts tritium production using 2 to 4 commercial nuclear pressur- ized water reactors (PWRs) run by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA).167 This commercial capability currently meets the U.S. stockpile tritium production capability; however, due to the overall age of the U.S. nuclear pow- er industry, future PWRs may not be available to contin- ue tritium production.168 The loss of tritium production directly reduces the effectiveness of the U.S. nuclear stockpile by reducing or hindering the overall yield pro- duced by the nuclear warheads. Without an effective U.S. nuclear stockpile, the U.S. cannot deter peer nu- clear competitors and rogue nuclear states increasing the risk to all-out war against the United States.169

    Directly tied to tritium production is the future of the nu- clear power industry. It is filled with an aging fleet of re- actors built in the late 1960s and 1970s. Most receive a commercial license by the Nuclear Regulatory Commis- sion (NRC) to operate on average 30 years, but many have or are seeking extensions to increase the opera- tions out to 40 and 50 years.170 The age of the industry

    Problem: Climate Change and Threats to Nuclear Weapons Infrastructure

    Recommendation: The U.S. Department of De- fense, in combination with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) should develop a long term 15 to 20 year tritium production plan that accounts for advances in nuclear technology and the pos- sibility of rising climate induced water levels as well as increases to the overall average water temperature used to cool nuclear reactors. This plan should include projections of fiscal resourc- es and military tritium requirements needed to maintain and modernize the U.S. nuclear stock- pile. It should also include U.S. government re- quirements for use of helium-3, a decay product of tritium used primarily for neutron detection when searching for special nuclear material (SNM) and enforcing nuclear non-proliferation agreements.

    Implementation Timing: Now to 10+ Years Resource Requirement: High

    The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) in combination with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) should de- velop a long term 15 to 20-year tritium production plan that accounts for advances in nuclear technology and the possibility of rising climate induced water levels as

    and the lack of new reactors coming on-line creates a significant risk to both the environment and the mainte- nance of the U.S. nuclear stockpile. “The highest priority of nuclear innovation policy should be to promote the availability of an advanced nuclear power system 15 to 20 years from now”.171

    Nuclear reactors produce far less atmospheric pollution than fossil fuels and radioactive waste can be minimized and managed accordingly. Reducing carbon monoxide emissions in the near future must include a replacement of the underlying nuclear power production capability in this country. Increasing the underlying U.S. baseline nu- clear power generation capability from a mere 20% (and declining) to more than 80% (to cover the 60% coal pro- duction capability that currently exists) can significantly reduce greenhouse gases.172 The government will need to lead this expansion which goes against the fossil fuel business paradigms that have existed for more than 100 years. Any nuclear industry expansion must include a long term review of tritium production requirements and analyze how the government will maintain its re- quired tritium production capability.

    The production of tritium directly effects the production of helium-3. Tritium has a half-life of 12.3 years. This means that if you have 10 liters of tritium, 12.3 years later you will only have 5 liters. Every time you hit a half- life milestone (every 12.3 years) the volume of tritium available drops in half. After about 7 half-lives, tritium has decayed away to trace amounts. This affects the amount of tritium needed in our existing nuclear stock- pile and will not decrease over the next 50 to 75 years.

    An added benefit to tritium decay is the production of helium-3. This direct byproduct currently supports the non-proliferation efforts of nuclear inspectors conduct- ing treaty verification, Special Forces conducting crit- ical lost or stolen SNM search missions, and the U.S.

  • Army’s Chemical, Nuclear, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) Response forces conducting troop health and safety sweeps at suspect nuclear and industrial facili- ties or identifying the detection of SNM at suspect nu- clear weapon production facilities. The Defense Threat Reduction Agency currently has research efforts look- ing at replacing helium-3 as a detection gas since its availability in the future may come into question. The risk to these programs remains high over the next 5 to 7 years until newer viable research methods reveal stable and reliable neutron detection methods for use by the Army’s Special Forces and CBRN response forces in the field. The long-term outcome for neutron detection capability remains low due to these new technologies.

    Any expansion of nuclear power should also take into account the stability of tritium production to maintain U.S. national security through a strong nuclear deter- rence. The DoD, especially the Army, must consider the consequences if the U.S. nuclear stockpile can no lon- ger maintain its effectiveness. Without an effective stra- tegic nuclear deterrent, the risk of conventional conflict will increase.

    The strategic nuclear force is the backbone of U.S. na- tional defense. This is the last-ditch defensive capability designed to keep rational peer adversaries out of the U.S. homeland and out of direct conflict with U.S. military forces. Any erosion of this force or its value in present or future conflict mandates the need to identify alternative deterrence mechanisms at scale. The Army will need to compensate with adding more soldiers or robotic capabilities because countries may try to engage the U.S. more frequently in sub-kinetic or hybrid compelling and coercive actions to halt or dissuade U.S. foreign and national security policy motives around the world. The force may falter under the diversity of threats, with the potential for increased local escalation as a result of other peer competitors. A strong Army must compen- sate for such actions since it will be called on to hold ground, interact with populations (civilian and military), and advance and take positions to shut down enemy actions. The loss of an effective nuclear capability could overtask the U.S. Army and possibly bankrupt the coun-

    42

    try in an attempt to maintain U.S. post-Cold War hege- mony.

    The Army should support the DoD efforts to maintain and replace tritium production levels, especially in any future climate efforts that may change the availability of nuclear power generation in the commercial sector that ultimately effects the effectiveness of the nuclear stock- pile.

    The Army can achieve this through the Nuclear Weap- on Council (a joint DoD and DOE senior decision com- mittee focused on nuclear weapon matters) under the Nuclear Weapon Council Standing and Safety Commit- tee (NWCSSC) (See Title 10 of U.S. Code section 179 for summary of the NWC).173 Currently, the Army has a position on the NWCSSC to help review safety, military requirements, and future needs of the nuclear stockpile. The NWCSSC sends its recommendations to the NWC for approval. The Army should maintain an active role on the committee and start pushing for development of a long term 15 to 20 year plan for maintaining tritium production requirements. The Army should consider the consequences to the size and technological makeup of its forces if tritium production changes and reduc- es overall nuclear stockpile effectiveness. The United States government’s ability to deter and dissuade must remain a number one priority in order for the U.S. to continue to push and achieve its national objectives of peace, prosperity, and open market competition for the benefit of the American people.174 Without a credible strategic nuclear force, the Army and the DoD risks fu- ture long term conflicts requiring extensive resources in manpower and equipment.

    Conclusion

    The implications of significant, global, regional and local change produced by a general warming of the Earth’s climate are far too extensive to be addressed by this study. Therefore, the guiding principle of this study was to explore diverse areas of importance for the Army that are or will be likely affected by climate change and to develop reasonable, useful recommendations in con- nection with those areas. A larger and perhaps even more urgent lesson from this study is the importance of developing regular administrative and institutional structures and processes that allow the Army and the DoD to detect, evaluate, respond and regularly review the implications of systemic risk relevant to the Army’s missions and preparedness. Large scale threats like cli- mate change and mass migrations are systemic risks, with emergent features not captured by the simple sum- mation of threat-by-threat-by-threat assessments. The Army must find governance mechanisms that generate greater flexibility, without risk of compromise to the in- tegrity of the force, to deal with the various significant stresses on the Army inherent to a warming climate. These stresses are occurring for military and civilian institutions alike against the backdrop of exponential changes in technology, human population, resource consumption, urbanization, sea level rise, etc.

    It is useful to remind ourselves regularly of the capac- ity of human beings to persist in stupid beliefs in the face of significant, contradictory evidence.175 Mitigation of new large-scale stresses requires a commitment to learning, systematically, about what is happening.

    On 22 June, 1941, the Third Reich launched Operation Barbarossa, a massive invasion of the Soviet Union.

    1. This section adapted from Hill, Andrew: “Red Beard, Black Swan: Recognizing the Unexpected.” US Army War College, War Room. 2017. https://warroom.armywarcollege.edu/articles/black_ swan_red_beard/.

    The assault, named after the red-bearded (“barba ros- sa” in Italian) German crusader and emperor Frederick I, involved over 3.5 million Axis troops, killed millions, and almost destroyed the Soviet Union. Although the attack is sometimes called a “surprise,” this is mislead- ing. It is more accurate to say that Barbarossa surprised the one person who could not afford to be: Josef Stalin. How could a military operation involving about 150 divi- sions have found its political target so unprepared?

    Life is full of the unexpected, or the overlooked obvious. The term “black swan event” describes surprises of an especially momentous and nasty type. Popularized by the mathematician Nicholas Nassim Taleb in his 2007 book of the same title, Taleb argued that black swan events have three characteristics: “rarity, extreme im- pact, and retrospective (though not prospective) pre- dictability.”176 In recent years, the concept of black swan events has gained currency in political, military, and fi- nancial contexts.

    The black swan has a venerable history as an illustra- tion of the ancient epistemological problem of induction: simply stated, no number of observations of a given re- lationship are sufficient to prove that a different relation- ship cannot occur. No amount of white swan sightings can guarantee that a different color swan is not out there waiting to be seen. The discovery of black swans by European explorers in Australia has proven too tempt- ing to ignore as a powerful metaphor for the problem of induction.

    However, in emphasizing the importance of anticipa- tion, Taleb’s concept of the black swan ignores key facts about history and how it is understood by those who live it. Two characteristics of the strategic environ- ment epitomize this problem.

    First, the list of things that can happen but have not happened yet is long. It is, in fact, infinitely long. For each thing that exists (e.g., cats) we can come up with more variations that do not, to our knowledge, exist (fly- ing cats, cats with gills, six-legged cats, and so on). It is fun to think about all the cataclysmic, history-alter- ing events that might happen, but thinking about those things in a way that appropriately organizes them and informs strategy is extremely hard. That said, tech- niques used in Systems Thinking, when applied to this concern, often reveal relatively obvious blind spots that obscure even high impact, high likelihood events. The Chinese focus on building universities, programs and initiatives focused on Systems Thinking over the past 20 years, and the inclusion of this curriculum in the training cadets destined to lead China in the future should be notable, as it is may be the basis of large asymmetries with broad implications for the U.S. Army, the U.S. IC, the DoD, and allies.

    Second, events that present as tremendous shocks have often taken months, years, or even longer periods to emerge. In the time between weak signals of change and the onset of a deeper crisis, there are often op- portunities to prepare and adapt. These opportunities may be much more readily apparent if important “emer- gent properties” of major concern to the force, espe- cially those resulting in threat that is orthogonal to force strength, are systematically characterized.

    The real challenge with black swan events is not accu- rate anticipation, but timely recognition. While it can be useful to imagine what might happen, we should focus more on recognizing what is happening as quickly as possible and limiting the damage through timely learn- ing.

    The black plague took half a decade to advance from Sicily to the Baltic states. More recently, the 2008 finan- cial crisis is already remembered as a “shock” event

    that surprised global finance.177,178 However, the truth is more nuanced, and depressing. Notable observers of the system (including Dr. Taleb) recognized serious problems long before the fall of Lehman Brothers in September, 2008 (and the onset of a full-blown banking crisis).179,180 Yet this was mostly recognition, not predic- tion. The clearest early signal of big trouble in the mort- gage market came in the March-April, 2007 collapse of New Century Financial, an originator of risky mortgag- es, almost a year and a half before Lehman’s end, and a year before Bear Stearns was rolled up.181,182 What happened in the meantime? In All the Devils Are Here, Bethany McLean and Joe Nocera describe two embat- tled Bear Stearns asset managers who provide a micro- cosm of the wishful thinking that made the crisis much worse than it needed to be. In the face of mounting ev- idence that their investment strategy is failing, “the two men simply couldn’t bring themselves to believe that the picture was as dire as the model suggested.”183

    When the facts do not match our strong theories for how the world works, we prefer to change the facts. How can we more quickly recognize the unexpected for what it really is?

    In Frank Tashlin’s classic children’s book, The Bear That Wasn’t, a bear awakes from hibernation and, exiting his cave, finds himself in a huge factory that has been built over his forest home. Encountering a foreman, the bear is told to get back to work, to which the bear replies, “I don’t work here. I’m a bear.” Incredulous, the foreman says, “You’re not a bear. You are just a silly man who needs a shave and wears a fur coat.”

    Aside from its entertainment value, the Bear that Wasn’t provides a humorous example of a profound philosophical problem: When the facts do not match our strong theories for how the world works, we prefer to change the facts. How can we more quickly recog- nize the unexpected for what it really is? The foreman (along with various executives that the bear meets) has a simple belief: No bears are in factories.

    If we have a theory of factories that says (among other things), “No bears are in factories,” the theory is based on our experiences observing who is in a factory (i.e., human workers). It is an inductive theory: every obser- vation to date has been of human workers. We could not arrive at such a theory independent of our accumu- lated experience. In addition, the more workers we see, the more certain we become (in terms of probability) that all workers are human (and none are bears), but we will never, ever observe every possibility.

    Although we should not make the unjustified leap from making a probabilistic statement based on induction to a universal statement based on deduction, we often do it anyway. Our beliefs then shape how we treat the evi- dence. For example, prior to seeing a non-white swan, we develop the following syllogism:

    1. Major Premise: All swans are white.
  • Minor Premise: That bird is a swan.

  • Conclusion: That bird is white.

  • When we see a black swan, if we are unemotion- al, Spock-like empiricists, we will immediately recognize that “if swan, then white” is false. That is, we will know that our conclusion, “that bird is white,” is false based

    on observation that the bird is black and a swan. Find- ing ourselves in a situation in which we believe that our premises are true but our conclusion is false, and there- fore not entailed by the premises, we will conclude that our major premise must not be true, and therefore reject it.

    Here is where human experience departs from the clean abstractions of logic. We are not Spock. We have emo- tional attachments to our beliefs. This is as true of atti- tudes towards a changing climate as it was of attitudes towards the financial crisis.

    Three maxims can help us avoid dangerous failures of recognition, and speed learning when unexpected things happen.

    1. Everything we believe about the world is pro- visional – “serving for the time being.” Adding the words “so far” to assertions about reality reminds us of this.
  • Unjustified certainty is very costly. The greater your certainty that you are right when you are wrong, the longer it will take you to recognize and incorporate new data into your system of belief, and to change your mind. General Doug- las MacArthur was a confident man, and this confidence usually served him well, such as when he undertook the risky landings at Incheon in the Korean War. Yet MacArthur’s confidence betrayed him when China entered the war. He was certain that this would not happen, and MacArthur’s certainty delayed his recognition of a key change, exposing forces under his com- mand to terrible risk. Confidence in your beliefs is valuable only insofar as it results in different choices (e.g., I choose A or B). Beyond that point, confidence has increasing costs.

  • Pay special attention to data that is unlikely in light of your current beliefs; it has much more information per unit, all else equal. In this sense, information content is measured as the potential to change how you think about the world. Infor-

  • 46

    mation that is probable in light of your beliefs will have minimal effects on your understand- ing. Improbable information, if incorporated, will change it.

    It is doubtless correct that many awful things that have not happened before will yet happen. Foresight regard- ing such events would be nice. It would be nicer still if we could recognize more quickly what is happening right in front of us. That is the right starting point for thinking strategically about the warming climate.

    Appendix: Weather Control

    Weather control is a fascinating and worrying potential technology. If used in with intentionally nefarious intent, its effects could be catastrophic. It is not exactly climate change in the sense that we define it here, but it brings many of the problems of climate change, with the pros- pect of these problems arising at the time and place of an adversary’s choosing.

    Naturally occurring terrestrial and space weather events constitute only one set of challenges to national securi- ty. The concept of weaponizing the natural environment is nothing new. Congressional testimony dating back to the early 1950s recommends approval of research and development funding for weather modification exper- imentation. This in response to concerns Russia was beating us in learning how to control the weather and the potential threat that posed to the United States.184 The United States has already demonstrated the po- tential to modify the weather in support of combat op- erations through its efforts in Vietnam. United States’ cloudseeding techniques used aircraft to disperse lead iodide into the atmosphere above portions of Southeast Asia to create a super-saturated environment during the Vietnamese monsoon season. The increased precipita- tion produced significant degradation of Vietnamese lo- gistic capabilities as vehicles, carts, and men remained bogged down on certain roadways and paths soaked by nearly continuous rainfall.185

    Much like the United States, potential rivals already pos-

  • sess the capability to artificially manufacture effects that manipulate the terrestrial and space weather environ- ment. An example is the superheating of the ionosphere through directed-energy generation. This capability has the potential to disrupt communications, limit capabili- ties of missile defense or other monitoring radars, and contaminate the ionosphere to such a degree as to pre- vent use of U.S. space or missile defense systems. Nor- mally these ionospheric scintillation experiments, like those performed at the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) in Alaska, are benign in na- ture and used for purely scientific research purposes. However, the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy, and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) original- ly developed, designed and operated HAARP as a joint project to perform experiments that manipulate and po- tentially control the ionosphere to enhance Department of Defense (DoD) command, control and communica- tions capabilities. Experiments ranged from extremely low-frequency waves for submarine communications to over-the-horizon-radar enhancement and even super scintillation events to disrupt or disable space assets in low Earth orbit. The HAARP program transferred to the University of Alaska for educational research after the DoD successfully accomplished their original exper- imental goals and determined to cut costs by terminat-

    ing the experiments and HAARP facility.

    186

    However, the United States is not the sole possessor of a HAARP-like capability. Partner nations, such as Japan and Norway, operate their own antenna farms, as do Russia and China.187 The use of ionospheric sounders operated by the Air Force make it possible to monitor

    when manipulations of the ionosphere occur, so it would be difficult to heat the ionosphere without anyone’s knowledge. However, the current distribution of these ionospheric sounders leaves large gaps in coverage exposing them to possible exploitation by an adversary.

    Still another artificially induced weather effect manifests through the use of a nuclear detonation to induce an artificial radiation belt. The consequences of such an event would produce significant and far-reaching im- pacts to U.S. national security. First, the electromagnet- ic pulse generated during the initial explosion mimics the disastrous costs produced by a Coronal Mass Ejec- tion (CME) induced geomagnetic storm. The United States would witness widespread power grid outages, loss of communication and navigation capabilities, plus long-term modification to the space environment. Dam- age to space assets in various satellite orbits would vary depending on detonation altitude and a loss of asset capability expected. These concerns do not spring from speculation. On July 9, 1962, the United States explod- ed the STARFISH PRIME nuclear device in the low Earth orbit at around 400 kilometers. Only 24 satellites were in orbit during the time of this test and subsequent tests that followed, but eight satellites suffered immediate damage during the tests while still others demonstrated shortened life spans from the artificially induced radia- tion belts. This nuclear testing also impacted communi- cations and changed the space operating environment for decades to follow.188

    A similar detonation in today’s congested space envi- ronment promises significantly worse outcomes. Ac- cording to the Union of Concerned Scientists website, the space environment hosts over 1,738 known satellites as of August, 2017. No country has more to lose than the United States if a space-based nuclear detonation occurred. Leading all nations at 803 satellites, the Unit- ed States has over 476 commercial, 150 governmental (with an additional 159 military), and 18 civil satellites

    on orbit at various altitudes above the Earth.189 While

    other nations would feel the effects of such an event,

    they are less likely to feel the level of national security

    implications when compared to the United States. Con-

    cerns over North Korean intentions during recent tests

    of their growing nuclear capability raise this to a very

    real threat. There is evidence that North Korea reached

    back to the early experiments of the United States and

    the Soviet Union during the late 50s and early 60s to

    gain insights on their own nuclear program. An atmo-

    spheric or space-based test of a North Korean nuclear

    weapon, designed to demonstrate national power or

    will on the international stage, would generate substan-

    tial disadvantages to U.S. national security as losses of

    space capability occur across a wide range of possible

    platforms.

    Numerous additional examples exist that demonstrate the ability to manipulate the natural environment as an instrument of national power. Commonly referred to as Geoengineering, it is defined by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change as “a broad set of methods and technologies that aim to deliberately alter the cli- mate system to alleviate impacts of climate change.”191 However, many of the geoengineering experiments currently underway to combat climate change possess the dual-use potential for weaponization of the natural environment. A report on Chinese efforts in the arena of solar geoengineering call for a variety of terrestrial or space-based options to combat CO2 concentrations. The various methods discussed could change the physical, chemical or biological characteristics of the Earth’s climate system. While some of these options

    may reduce greenhouse gas concentrations, they may also potentially create negative effects to an environ- ment where one did not exist previously.192

    A report examining the United States’ history in geoen- gineering reveals very similar possibilities. A National Center for Atmospheric Research, and Environmental Studies Program explored U.S. weather modification exertions back to 1947 and found a reactionary, check- ered past. In developing science and technology op- tions, along with the accompanying legislation, weather modification ran the gamut of beneficial and detrimen- tal outcomes across society. The study recommends any plans using geoengineering in climate change mitigation would benefit from a guiding framework of rules and regulations. It further endorses the establish- ment of a centralizing U.S. federal weather modification governing body to provide proper stewardship of the environment during any experimental development or actual implementation.193 Anything less could lead to a broad range of potential environmental, technical, polit- ical, and ethical issues.

    These very concerns culminated in the United Nations General Assembly holding the Convention on the Pro- hibition of Military or any Hostile Use of Environmental Modification Techniques (ENMOD) of 1976. The EN- MOD Convention was the tool used to capture the spirit of international disarmament law explicitly envisioned to keep the manipulation of the environment out of the armed conflict arsenal. An additional protocol added a further ban on the use of methods and means of war- fare that purposefully and excessively damage the en- vironment. The overall language bans the hostile use of the natural environment to wage war and went into force as of October, 1978. The United States, along with 77 other nations, have ratified the treaty and agreed to live

    by its restrictions.

    the future would carry with it an almost certain interna- tional condemnation for any nation willing to undertake the effort. If someone could prove who did it.

    Jürgen Elsässer im Gespräch mit Tino Perlick und Marc Dassen.

    77 Tage – länger war US-Präsident Donald Trump nicht im Amt gewesen, als er ohne völkerrechtliche Deckung und bar einer Erlaubnis des US-Kongresses am 6. April 59 Tomahawk-Raketen auf die syrische Luftwaffenbasis Al-Schairat bei Homs abfeuern ließ. Während er damit im Nahen Osten die Konfrontation mit Assads Bündnispartner Moskau riskierte, kündigte Trump zeitgleich gegenüber Chinas Staatspräsident Xi Jinping an, allein gegen Nordkorea vorgehen zu wollen – dem Anschein nach, wegen dessen erbärmlichen Atomprogramms. Zwei Tage später schickte er einen Marine-Kampfverband vor Koreas Küste. War es etwa das, was Trump mit „Frieden durch Stärke“ meinte?

    http://trutube.tv/wahrheit

    Wir sollen  uns heute von den modernen Polit-Sektierern, Figuren wie Stalin, Putin und die Zaren als ruhmreiche Ritter gegen London und Washington anpreisen lassen.

    Den Deutschen tischt man heute längst vergangene historische Begebenheiten auf, wie die Hilfe der Zaren Russlands an das Deutsch Reich, um den Deutschen heute zu suggerieren, dass die direkten Nachfolger der Sowjets dabei helfen würden, Deutschland von dem angloamerikanischen Establishment zu befreien.

    Ausgerechnet die konservativen deutschen Erben des alten Preußens erhoffen sich heute die Rückkehr zu Glanz und Gloria mit Hilfe der russischen Machthaber, deren direkte Vorfahren Preußen vernichtet und die DDR auf deutschem Boden etabliert hatten!

    Genauso hoffen die Kinder und Enkel der deutschen Soldaten an der Ostfront im zweiten Weltkrieg heute, dass sie dank Russland bessere Zeiten erleben werden. Verkehrter geht es nicht mehr. Gerade WallStreet und die City of London pumpten Geld in die Sowjetunion unter Stalin, damit jener letztendlich Deutschland vom Osten aus bezwingen und halbieren würde.

    Es durfte damals kein freies, souveränes Deutschland geben und heute sollen wir uns entscheiden zwischen Pest und Cholera, zwischen angloamerikanischem Establishment und Russland.

    Der Golda Meir-Stalin/Kaganovich Pakt und heutige Weltpolitik.

    Ein Artikel von autarkes-Rattelsdorf, mein Dank an Svea für den Hinweis, sagt Maria Lourdes!

    Das heutige Russland unter Putin ist genauso wie die westliche Hemisphäre des Planeten nur ein Spielball der Geldmächtigen. Wer bei der Führung in Russland Hoffnung sucht, liegt einem gewaltigen Irrtum auf.

    Immer wieder haben Menschen versucht von offizieller russischer Seite eine Antwort auf den völkerrechtlichen Status Deutschlands zu bekommen.

    Bisher ohne Erfolg. Es erschien einem fast so, als ob sich die Russen klar daran halten würden, dass man sich nicht in die Angelegenheiten von Deutschland einmischt. Heute glaube ich, dass die russischen Stellen sehr gut dokumentieren, wer in Deutschland ein System-Kritiker ist.

    Auf jeden Fall mischt sich Russland sehr wohl in die deutsche Wahrheitsbewegung ein, aber indirekt, so dass es nicht viele bemerken.

    Erinnert Ihr Euch noch an Alexander Rahr, der zusammen mit Genscher daran beteiligt war, dass der Verbrecher Michail Chodorkowski aus dem Gefängnis in Russland entlassen wird? Schauen wir uns kurz diesen Alexander Rahr genauer an. Lesen wir mal, was Wikipedia über ihn schreibt:

    “Alexander Rahr (* 2. März 1959 in Taipeh, Republik China) ist ein deutscher Osteuropa-Historiker, Politologe und Publizist. Er gilt als einer der namhaftesten Russland-Experten und ist Autor mehrerer Bücher über den russischen Präsidenten Wladimir Putin. … Alexander Rahr studierte Geschichte an der Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München.
    Rahr war Mitarbeiter des Forschungsprojekts „Sowjetelite“ des Bundesinstituts für ostwissenschaftliche und internationale Studien (BIOst). Er war Analytiker in den Think Tanks von Radio Liberty und Rand Corporation. Achtzehn Jahre arbeitete er für die Deutsche Gesellschaft für Auswärtige Politik (DGAP) und war zuletzt Leiter des Berthold Beitz-Zentrums – Kompetenzzentrum für Russland, Ukraine, Belarus und Zentralasien. Rahr sitzt im Lenkungsausschuss des Petersburger Dialogs. Dort ist er auch Mitkoordinator des Arbeitskreises Zukunftswerkstatt. Er ist Forschungsdirektor des Deutsch-Russischen Forums. Seit Juni 2012 ist er Senior Advisor der Wintershall Holding GmbH und berät den Präsidenten der Deutsch-Russischen Auslandshandelskammer AHK.

    Rahr war an der Seite Hans-Dietrich Genschers wesentlich an der Erwirkung einer Amnestie des ehemaligen Oligarchen und Kremlkritikers Michail Chodorkowski beteiligt. (Er ist Autor zahlreicher Bücher über Russland, wie beispielsweise Biographien über Michail Gorbatschow  und Wladimir Putin. Putin nach Putin oder Der kalte Freund)

    Er ist Mitglied des russischen Clubs Waldai und des ukrainischen Netzwerkes Yalta European Strategy (YES). 2003 wurde Rahr das Bundesverdienstkreuz verliehen. Er ist Ehrenprofessor der Moskauer Diplomatenschule und der Higher School of Economics, Moskau.”

    Das COMPACT-Magazin von Jürgen Elsässer organisierte bisher zwei sog.

    “Souveränitätskonferenzen” in Deutschland. Jürgen Elsässer und COMPACT sind in der der deutschen Wahrheitsbewegung sehr bekannt. Da stellte sich mir natürlich die Frage, wie COMPACT es schafft Alexander Rahr als Redner zu bekommen.

    Und da entdeckte ich, dass neben dem COMPACT-Magazin ja auch das sog. “Institut de la Démocratie et de la Coopération (Paris)” [Institut für Demokratie und Zusammenarbeit] die “Souveränitätskonferenzen” ausrichtet.

    “Institut für Demokratie und Zusammenarbeit”, das hört sich ja fast an wie eine dieser vielen demokratischen Denkfabriken, die George Soros so gerne gründet, um ein Land hinterher im Sinne der Geldmächtigen zu revolutionieren. Schlagen wir uns weiter durch zwei Wikipedia-Artikel:

    “Das Institut für Demokratie und Zusammenarbeit (russisch Институт демократии и сотрудничества, engl. Institute for Democracy and Cooperation) ist eine Denkfabrik mit Sitz in Moskau und Filialen in Paris und New York. Es wurde im Januar 2008 mit dem Ziel gegründet, die Lage der Menschenrechte in den Vereinigten Staaten und anderen westlichen Staaten zu beobachten.

    Leiterin der Pariser Filiale ist die ehemalige Duma-Abgeordnete Natalija Narotschnizkaja, Leiter der New Yorker Filiale ist Andranik Migranjan. Das Institut wird nach eigenen Angaben überwiegend durch Spenden aus Russland finanziert und gilt nach Darstellung der staatlich-russischen Russia Beyond the Headlines als regierungsnah“

    Macht Euch  kurz klar, was das heißt:

    Eine regierungsnahe Denkfabrik aus Russland organisiert also Souveränitätskonferenzen in Deutschland! Und wer leitet die Pariser Filiale des “Instituts für Demokratie und Zusammenarbeit”?
    Natalija Alexejewna Narotschnizkaja (russisch Наталия Алексеевна Нарочницкая; * 23. Dezember 1948 in Moskau) ist eine russische Historikerin, Politikerin und Diplomatin.

    Ihre Ausbildung erhielt sie am Moskauer Staatlichen Institut für Internationale Beziehungen. Von 1982 bis 1989 arbeitete sie als sowjetische Diplomatin bei der UNO in New York. 2003 wurde sie als Abgeordnete der linksnationalistischen Partei Rodina in die russische Staatsduma gewählt. Im Jahr 2008 übernahm sie die Leitung der Pariser Filiale des neu gegründeten Instituts für Demokratie und Zusammenarbeit.
    Russland spielt nur die Gegenseite im globalen Spiel der scheinbaren Kräfte. Russland übernimmt den Part ganz spezielle Themengebiete der NWO zu verbreiten. Einige dieser Punkte sind folgende:

    1. Die Alien-Propaganda. Die UNO ist dafür verantworltich, dass es überhaupt in manchen Ländern offizielle Stellen gibt, die das UFO-Phänomen beobachten. Über die “VN-Resolution A/33/426 zur Beobachtung unidentifizierter Flugobjekte und extraterrestrischen Lebensformen” versucht die UNO den Glauben an außerirdische Besucher zu stärken, um dadurch die Religionen aufzuweichen. Russland übernimmt hier einen aktiven Part.
    2. Die Raumfahrt-Lüge. Begonnen hat diese Lüge die UdSSR mit ihrer gefälschten ersten Stratosphärenfahrt von Yuri Gagarin. Da sich die USA, Russland und China hier nicht gegenseitig ins Fleisch schneiden, besteht ein geheimes Abkommen zwischen diesen Mächten, zusammenzuarbeiten. Obwohl rein strategisch ein großes Interesse für China und Russland bestehen sollte z.B. die Mondlandungslüge zu entlarven, schweigen sich beide Seiten konsequent darüber aus.
    3. Die “Whistleblower”-Lüge. Sowohl die russische und die westliche Seite schaffen sog. “Whistleblower”, um das globalistische Konzept der UNO zu stärken. Russland verteidigt z.B. den falschen Whistleblower Edward Snowdon und davor den falschen Whistleblower Julian Assange. Beide sprachen sich für globale Regelungen aus, um die internationale Sicherheit zu verbessern, gemeint haben sie natürlich die Befugnisse der UNO zu erweitern. Auf der westlichen Seite versucht man auch Whistleblower aufzubauen, aber mit weniger Erfolg, der letzte war Michail Chodorkowski.
    4. Menschenrechte und Demokratie. In Russland und den USA gelten die Menschenrechte und die Demokratie als höchstes Gut. Schon einmal hatte die UdSSR unter Stalin diesen Kurs gefahren. Beide leere Begriffe dienen politischen Absichten und nicht dem “Frieden und der Freiheit der Völker” wie so oft betont.

    5. Russland und die USA sehen den Schutz Israels als eine ihrer wichtigsten Aufgaben. Putin machte diese Haltung deutlich, als er wiederholt sagte, dass Israel heute ganz speziell vom internationalen Terrorismus bedroht sei.

    Is Putin kosher?

    Doch nun zu dem Thema, das diesem Artikel auch die Überschrift gegeben hat.
    Der amerikanische Jude Jack Bernstein übermittelt uns in seinem Buch “Das Leben eines amerikanischen Juden im rassistisch, marxistischen Israel” den sog. Golda Meir-Stalin/Kaganovich-Pakt, den Israel über Golda Meir mit der UdSSR abgeschlossen hat.

    Dieser Pakt beinhaltet folgende Punkte:

    • Israel erlaubt es keinem Land des Westens Militärbasen in Israel zu bauen.
    • Israel erlaubt es einer kommunistischen Partei offen in Israel zu arbeiten
    • Israel schließt keinen Beschluss oder Vertrag ab, um den Palästina-Konflikt zu lösen
    • Israel beeinflusst das Judentum, speziell in den USA, damit diese eine Politik in die westlichen Ländern einführen, die Israel gegenüber den Arabern bevorzugt
    • Israel sollte seine marxistische Wirtschaftspolitik weiterführen und Freie Marktwirtschaft aus Israel fern halten
    • Die Sowjets betreiben eine pro-arabische Politik als Deckmantel, um ihre wahren Absichten zu verdecken. Die Sowjets helfen den Arabern, aber lassen sie niemals so stark werden, dass sie eine Bedrohung für Israel werden könnten. So kann die marxistische Doktrin auch Einzug in islamische Ländern bekommen.
    • Die Sowjets lassen russische Juden über ihre Satelliten-Staaten nach Israel auswandern, wenn diese das wünschen. Sollte es die Situation erfordern öffnen die Sowjets auch die russischen Grenzen für die jüdische Auswanderung
    • Die Sowjets garantieren die absolute Sicherheit Israels

    Nachdem ich die russische Politik ausgiebig beobachtet habe, komme ich zum Ergebnis, dass der Golda Meir-Stalin/Kaganovich-Pakt heute immer noch gilt. Lediglich die Wirtschaftspolitik beider Länder dürfte sich nach dem Abschalten der UdSSR geändert haben.

    Putin-Versprechen an Shimon Peres – Russland wird den Holocaust NIE vergessen!  

    voiceofrussia.com – 2012_11_08 – deutscher-freiheitskampf.com

    Die russische Gesellschaft werde nie den Holocaust vergessen und alle jüdischen Menschen, die ihr Leben gaben, um den Nationalsozialismus zu besiegen, sagte der russische Präsident Wladimir Putin bei seinem Treffen mit dem israelischen Amtskollegen Shimon Peres am Donnerstag in Moskau.

    Die beiden Männer nahmen an der Eröffnungs-Zeremonie des “Jüdischen Museums und Toleranz-Zentrums in Moskau” teil, etwas, das Putin

    “einen weiteren Beitrag im Kampf gegen Fremdenfeindlichkeit und Nationalismus,” nannte.

    Peres, für seinen Teil sagte, dass die Sowjetunion

    “den entscheidenden Angriff (“launched a decisive strike”) auf Hitler ausführte”, und dass 30 Millionen Russen im Zweiten Weltkrieg starben. Jede ehrliche und anständige Person muss ‘Danke’ sagen zu Russland”, fügte Peres hinzu und betonte, dass die Ereignisse des Zweiten Weltkriegs immer in Erinnerung bleiben müssen.”

    Israels Präsident Shimon Peres erwartet von Russland und den USA, die Bemühungen um die Beilegung der iranischen Atomfrage zu unterstützen.

    “Ich weiß, dass Russland ebenfalls daran interessiert ist, den Zugriff des Iran auf Atomwaffen zu verhindern”, sagte Peres, bei der Eröffnung des  ”Jüdischen Museums und Toleranz-Zentrums in Moskau.

    “Wir beten für den Präsidenten Putin und Obama, dass sie durch ihre Bemühungen dem Terror und den Bedrohungen ein Ende setzen”, sagte der israelische Führer.

    Putin-Versprechen: Holocaust wird nicht wiederholt!

    Vor zwei Jahren, als der israelische Ministerpräsident Benjamin Netanjahu, bei einem Besuch in Moskau war, schlug er die Idee eines Denkmals in Israel zur Erinnerung an die Opfer der Roten Armee im Namen der Juden vor.

    Präsident Putin versprach Israel zu der Einweihungsfeier zu kommen.

    Am Montag wurde vom Präsidenten der Russischen Föderation Wladimir Putin, dem israelischen Präsidenten Shimon Peres, dem israelischen Außenminister Avigdor Liberman und jüdischen Führern aus der ganzen Welt das brandneue “Victory Monument in Netanya, Israel” präsentiert.

    “Ich freue mich sehr, heute hier zu sein”,

    sagte Präsident Putin.

    “Wir leben in einer fragilen Welt, und wir sind verpflichtet sicherzustellen, dass diese dunkle und tragische Zeit in der Geschichte sich nicht wiederholt. Der Holocaust war das beschämendste und dunkelste Ereignis in der menschlichen Geschichte, und die sowjetische Armee war diejenige, die den Kopf des Nazi-Monsters abgeschlagen hat.”

    Putin fügte hinzu:

    “Dieses erstaunliche Denkmal stärkt den Respekt voreinander und ich fühle mich mit dem jüdischen Volk und dem Staat Israel eng verbunden. Die Flügel in dem Denkmal sind weiß wie die Flügel der Taube, die den Frieden symbolisiert.”

    Der Entwurf des Denkmals war eine erste gemeinsame Initiative von Israel und Russland und wurde von einem Ausschuss aus Mitgliedern der beiden Länder durchgeführt und von großen jüdischen Philanthropen  der Keren Hayesod finanziert, der UIA und des Weltforums der russischen Juden.

    Präsident Putin besuchte Israel speziell für diese Einweihungsfeier. Das Denkmal ehrt die Millionen von Soldaten der Roten Armee, die im Krieg umgekommen sind, unter ihnen 120.000 Juden. Alexander Levin, Präsident des Weltforums der russischen Juden, ein anhaltender Unterstützer des Denkmals, sagte:

    “Millionen russische Juden auf der ganzen Welt sind in diesem Moment in Solidarität für die tapferen Soldaten der Roten Armee vereint.”

    Mehr als eine halbe Million jüdischer Soldaten kämpften mit der Roten Armee im Zweiten Weltkrieg gegen die Nazis.

    Putin kommt nach Israel: Warum ist er da? Quellen: flashtrafficblog – 2012/06/25 -deutscher-freiheitskampf.com

    Der neue Zar von Russland stand an diesem Morgen im Mittelpunkt. Er kam für einen zweitägigen Ausflug nach Israel.

    Die Frage ist: Warum ist Wladimir Putin da?

    Putin weigerte sich, zusammen mit den USA im vergangenen Monat zum G-8-Gipfel zu kommen, doch er beschloss, Israel zu besuchen.

    Bemerkenswert ist, dass Putin der bisher einzige russische Führer in der Geschichte ist, der den jüdischen Staat besuchte. Zum ersten Mal hatte er Israel vor sieben Jahren besucht.

    Sein zweiter Besuch kommt zu einem Zeitpunkt, da Russlands Allianz mit dem Iran, Syrien und anderen islamischen Ländern sehr bedrohlich ist und die Beunruhigung wächst.

    Russland verkauft Waffen im Wert von Milliarden Dollar an islamische Länder und sendet seine Seestreitkräfte im Moment nach Syrien und hat Nukleartechnologie im Wert von Milliarden Dollar an den Iran verkauft. Doch im Moment scheint Putin entschlossen, den Israelis gegenüber ein freundliches Gesicht zu zeigen. Hier ist eine kurze Momentaufnahme, was beim Putin-Besuch passierte.

    “Der russische Präsident Wladimir Putin kam in der Stadt Netanya am Montagmorgen zu einem offiziellen Staatsbesuch”, berichtet Haaretz. Während einer Rede an der Gedenkstätte für die Rote Armee,  nannte Putin den “Holocaust das dunkelste, beschämendste Kapitel in der Geschichte der Menschheit”, und lobte die sowjetische Armee, dass sie es war, die den Kopf des Nazi-Monsters zertrümmerte und somit allen Nationen erlaubte zu überleben.”

    Putin fügte hinzu, er sei “sehr aufgeregt” und bedankte sich bei Netanyahu, Peres und “allen seinen israelischen Freunden” für die Errichtung des Denkmals. Präsident Shimon Peres war das Haupt der israelischen Vertreter bei der Einweihungsfeier. Er lobte die Maßnahmen der Sowjetunion gegen Nazi-Deutschland, als auch die Bemühungen der aktuellen russischen Regierung, den Frieden zwischen Israel und den Palästinensern zu fördern.

    Die Jerusalem Post berichtet:

    “Sowohl Israel und Russland sind sich einig, dass der iranische Besitz von Kernwaffen eine große Gefahr für Israel und die Welt darstellt”,

    sagte Ministerpräsident Benjamin Netanjahu bei einer gemeinsamen Pressekonferenz mit dem russischen Präsidenten Wladimir Putin bei der Kanzlei des Ministerpräsidenten in Jerusalem am Montag. Nach dem Gespräch mit Putin, stellte Netanjahu drei Forderungen an den Iran. Dass er alle Uran-Anreicherungen im Land stoppt, dass alles bereits angereicherte Uran aus dem Land geschafft wird, und dass er alle seine unterirdischen Atomanlagen zerstört.”

    Death Ray’ For Planes  (({ COMPLETE Version }))
    The New York Times
    September 22, 1940

    Nikola Tesla, one of the truly great inventors who celebrated his
    eighty-fourth birthday on July, 10 tells the writer that he stands ready
    to divulge to the United States government the secret of his
    “teleforce,” of which he said,” airplane motors would be melted at a
    distance of 250 miles, so that an invisible ‘Chinese Wall of Defense’
    would be built around the country against any enemy attack by an enemy
    air force, no matter how large.

    This “teleforce” is based on an
    entirely new principle of physics, that “no one has ever dreamed about,”
    different from the principles embodied in the in his inventions
    relating to the transmission of electrical power from a distance, for
    which he has received a number of basic patents. This new type of force
    Mr. Tesla said, would operate through a beam one- hundred-millionth of a
    square centimeter in diameter, and could be generated from special
    plant that would cost no more then $2,000,000 and would take only about
    three months to construct.

    A dozen such plants, located at
    strategic points along the coast, according to Mr. Tesla, would be
    enough to defend the country against all aerial attack. The beam would
    melt any engine, whether diesel or gasoline driven, and would also
    ignite the explosives aboard any bomber. No possible defense against it
    could be devised, he asserts, as the beam would be all-penetrating.

    Time line of Nikola Tesla: Niko Tesla

    7th or 8th ?

    High Vacuum Eliminated

    The beam, he states, involves four new inventions, two of which already
    have been tested. One of these is a method and apparatus for producing rays ‘and other manifestations or energy’ in free air, eliminating the necessity for a high vacuum;”
    a second is a process for producing “very great electrical force;”
    third is a method of amplifying this force, and the fourth is a new
    method for producing “a tremendous repelling electrical force.” This
    would be the projector, or the gun of the system. The voltage for
    propelling the beam to its objective, according to the inventor, will
    attain a potential of 80,000,000 volts.

    With this enormous voltage,
    he said, microscopic electrical particles of matter will be catapulted
    on their mission of defensive destruction. He has been working on this
    invention, he added, for many years and has made a number of
    improvements on it.

    Mr. Tesla makes one important stipulation.
    Should the government decide to take up his offer, he would go to work
    on it at once, but they would have to trust him. He would suffer “no
    interference from experts.”

    In ordinary times such a condition
    would very likely interpose an insuperable obstacle. But times being
    what they are, and with the nation getting ready to spend billions on
    national defense, at the same time taking in consideration the
    reputation of Mr. Tesla as an inventor who always was many years ahead
    of his time, the question arises whether it may not be advisable to take
    Mr. Tesla at his word and commission him to go ahead with his
    “teleforce” plant.

    Such a Device “Invaluable”

    After all $2,000,000
    would be relatively a very small sum compared with what is at stake. If
    Mr. Tesla really fulfills his promise the results achieved would be
    truly staggering. Now only would it save billions now planned for air
    defense, by making the country absolutely impregnable against any air
    attack, but it also would save many more billions in property that would
    otherwise be surely destroyed no matter how strong the defenses are as
    witness current events in England.

    Take, for example, the Panama
    Canal. No matter how strong the defense, a suicide squadron of dive
    bombers, according to some experts, might succeed in getting through and
    cause such damage that would make the Canal unusable, in which our Navy
    might find it self bottled up.

    Considering the probabilities in
    the case even if the chances were a 100,000 to 1 against Mr. Tesla the
    odds would still be largely in favor of taking a chance of spending
    $2000,000.

    Nikola Tesla`s DEATH RAY: Matrix World Disclosure

    In the opinion of the writer, who has known Mr. Tesla for
    many years and can testify he still retains full intellectual vigor, the
    authorities in charge of building national defense should at once look
    into the matter. The sum is insignificant compared to the magnitude of
    the stake.

    The Connections Between Nikola Tesla and Donald Trump: Trump Newss

    Trump’s Grandfather Worked Under John D. Rockefeller, Uncle Translated Tesla’s Stolen Work

    Before you trust a power player, read up on their history.
    http://themindunleashed.com/2017/03/trumps-grandfather-worked-john-d-rockefeller-uncle-translated-teslas-stolen-work.html
    The history, family, and associations of a power player are essential prerequisite info, if a person truly wants to understand who they are and what they do.

    Since we’re forced to deal with President Donald Trump, let’s take a look at what he was born into. He inherited millions of dollars from his US military affiliated real estate baron father, Fred Trump.

    His uncle, John G. Trump, was an engineer working with the military industrial complex affiliated school MIT, and examined brilliant engineer Nikola Tesla’s stolen papers after his death.

    Donald Trump’s grandfather Frederick Trump was an immigrant from Germany to the US. Fred and John G. Trump inherited the foundation of their opportunity from Frederick.

    Frederick Trump had problems with immigration in his lifetime, and was denied the ability to again become a German citizen, after fleeing to the US to dodge military service (not that there is anything wrong with avoiding serving in the military of a government you don’t believe in).

    At the age of 16, in 1885 Friedrich Trump landed in New York after emigrating from Kallstadt, Germany. He made a fortune in the Pacific Northwest during the gold-rush era, selling restaurant rooms with prostitutes and alcohol to miners trying to find gold.

    He worked under the direction of John D. Rockefeller’s investment near Seattle in the last decade of the 1800’s. According to an article by researcher Gwenda Blair published in Politico:

    “Friedrich Trump’s Seattle restaurant flourished, but he kept his ears open—another aspect of the Trump family MO. In 1894, he heard that John D. Rockefeller, the wealthiest man in the world, was bankrolling a mining operation in a small town north of Seattle named Monte Cristo. Without delay, Trump scoped out the best location there, secured it by filing a bogus mineral claim, built a hotel on the parcel even though it didn’t actually belong to him, and began giving the customers, once again, exactly what they wanted: plenty to eat, lots to drink and of course women.

    When Monte Cristo proved slow to deliver on its promise, Rockefeller publicly reiterated his support while secretly arranging an exit. In the summer of 1897, Trump also decided to cash out and return to Seattle—making him, along with Rockefeller, one of the few investors in Monte Cristo to end up winners rather than losers.”

    Although this doesn’t imply any kind of close relationship between Rockefeller and Trump, it is telling in some way that they both made their fortunes in the same atmosphere. It paints a picture of where power today originates and how it inherently behaves.

    Whether or not John D. Rockefeller had a relationship with Friedrich Trump, Donald Trump today has a relationship with Rockefeller’s Standard Oil corporation, which is now ExxonMobil.

    Donald Trump’s Secretary of State is Rex Tillerson, ex-Exxon executive.

    Continuing from the article:

    “In the New Arctic Restaurant and Hotel, which he opened in the raw new town of Bennett in May 1898, he again offered ‘private boxes’ for ladies, facilities that included not only a bed, but a scale for weighing the gold dust used to pay for services.

    It was the best restaurant in town, one newspaper reported at the time, but added that it ‘would not advise respectable women to go there to sleep as they are liable to hear that which would be repugnant to their feelings and uttered, too, by the depraved of their own sex.’”

    The story is continued by Wikipedia:

    “He bought all the necessary supplies, sold off his remaining property in Monte Cristo and Seattle, and transferred his 40 acres in the Pine Lake Plateau to his sister Louise. In 1900, Louise sold the property for $250. In the winter following Trump’s departure from Monte Cristo, the town suffered some of the worst avalanches and floods in its short history, and this time, Rockefeller refused to reconstruct the almost vital railroad to Everett.”

    The same author wrote another article in the Week, continuing the story into the 20th Century. It says:

    “Friedrich died in May 1918, just before the end of World War I. There was a rising tide of anti-German sentiment in America, manifested in accusations of disloyalty against people with German backgrounds, diatribes against music by German composers, even bonfires of books by German authors. People with German names changed them, and readership plummeted for the nation’s hundreds of German-language publications.

    This xenophobic atmosphere had a profound impact on Friedrich’s older son, Fred (named after Friedrich but in an Americanized form). Only 12 years old when his father died, Fred was now the man of the house, and he began to tamper with his family history — that is, to tell it like it wasn’t. Despite growing up in a German-speaking home and speaking his parents’ language on visits to Kallstadt, he said he didn’t know German, and by the beginning of World War II, he said his family was from Sweden.”

    So that brings us to Donald Trump’s father, Fred Trump. When Fred Trump’s father Friedrich died, 13 year old Fred became the man of the house.

    By age 15, his mother helped him begin a career in building homes and real-estate, using the wealth accumulated by Friedrich: Donald Trump’s father was given a more modest silver spoon than Donald, but a silver spoon nonetheless. With the inheritance from his father and his work in real estate, Fred Trump helped his brother John G. Trump enter academia.

    Fred Trump became a millionaire working with the US Military in WWII, building barracks and apartments. According to Wikipedia:

    “During World War II, Trump built barracks and garden apartments for U.S. Navy personnel near major shipyards along the East Coast, including Chester, Pennsylvania, Newport News, Virginia, and Norfolk, Virginia.

    After the war he expanded into middle-income housing for the families of returning veterans, building Shore Haven in Bensonhurst in 1949, and Beach Haven near Coney Island in 1950 (a total of 2,700 apartments). In 1963–1964, he built Trump Village, an apartment complex in Coney Island, for US$70 million.”

    This is how Donald Trump was born into a position to create his own fortune, following his father into the real estate business with both his money and business connections.

    The exact amount Donald received from his father to start his life is debated. Hillary Clinton (not that she is to be trusted or respected) claimed he received $14 million.

    Donald Trump claimed he received a “small” sum of $1 million to start, and other evidence suggests that he received other loans from his father. He also received a $1 million trust, as did his siblings. According to the Washington Post:

    “The casino document lists several other loans from Trump’s father to his son, including a $7.5 million loan with at least a 12-percent interest rate that was still outstanding in 1981.

    In a 2007 deposition, Trump admitted he had borrowed “a small amount” from his father’s estate: ‘I think it was like in the $9 million range.’”

    During the time that Fred Trump earned his fortune, his brother and Donald’s uncle John G. Trump was working with the mad scientists at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), de-coding brilliant engineer Nikola Tesla’s stolen papers.

    MIT is a central hub of science for the military industrial complex, as we’ve scratched the surface of in past articles. Researcher and author Peter A. Kirby thoroughly exposed the root of geoengineering (spraying the skies) in MIT, and his latest article can be found here.

    John G.’s association to Tesla was summarized by Big Think:

    “A few days after Tesla died on January 8th, 1943, his possessions were seized by officials from the amazingly-named government Office of Alien Property. About 3 weeks after that, all of Tesla’s things and documents were given a thorough examination by a group of FBI agents that included none other than John G. Trump.

    John G. Trump wrote about Tesla’s stolen papers, but perhaps his statement was meant to dissuade people from believing they found something of value in them, to keep the findings a secret. He said:
    “During 1942, Trump became Secretary of the Microwave Committee, a sub-committee of the NDRC. The director of the Microwave Committee was Alfred Lee Loomis, the millionaire physicist, who decided to create a laboratory. He selected a site for it, chose a suitably discreet and ambiguous name for it and funded the construction, until the Federal administration was established. The new institution was the MIT Radiation Laboratory, or the “Rad Lab”.”

    So what does this say about Donald Trump? One thing is certain: he is not new to the game of political power, to the military industrial complex, or to wealth.

    He has never had a history of caring about our class of people, and he has filled the White House with nothing but bankers, oil barons and people who loot and pillage our class of people.

    Just as Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama represented forces larger than them, from Goldman Sachs to the modern day incarnation of Rockefeller’s Standard Oil (ExxonMobil), all of them accept money and direction from the exact same entities.It is purposefully difficult to differentiate who is against who in this powerstructure, but it’s safe to say none of them have our best interest at heart.

    July 23rd, 1934
    Tesla’s RayNikola Tesla — World opinion does not affect him.He has produced nothing tangible for a long time, but he still remains one of the foremost living inventors of electrical apparatus.
    His day comes once a year. On his birthday Manhattan newshawks seek him out in some hotel, listen closely to his words. Wearing an outmoded brown suit, he received the Press one day last week in a Hotel New Yorker reception room. That day Nikola Tesla was 78.

    The first thing Nikola Tesla invented was a hook for catching frogs.
    That was not long after he learned to talk, in the Croatian hamlet of
    Smiljan where he was born. He studied physics and mathematics at two
    universities, got into telegraph engineering, went to Budapest, to
    Paris, to the U. S. in 1884 to work for Thomas Edison. Soon he had a
    research laboratory of his own. Four years later he patented the
    induction motor, first effective utilization of alternating current. He
    discovered the rotary magnetic field principle used today in the
    hydroelectric plants at Niagara Falls. He invented dynamos, transformers, induction coils, condensers, arc and incandescent lamps. He was acclaimed a great genius.

    All that was long ago and Tesla has lingered on into a twilight of semi-obscurity.
    His hotel room is now his only laboratory, his brain his only tool. When callers importune him he takes a bath or goes to bed.

    When he talks about his work his deep-set blue eyes burn with an icy fire. He walks prodigious distances through the city streets. His most valued friends are the New York Public Library’s somnolent pigeons. A life-long bachelor, Dr. Tesla is tall, spare, erect, parchment-skinned, beak-nosed. The mustache he once wore is gone.

    Even at the peak of his renown he had great visions.
    In 1900 he was ready to cure tuberculosis with oscillating electricity.
    In 1909 he promised motors capable of driving ocean liners at 50 knots.
    In 1911 it was storm-proof dirigibles without propellers.
    In the last decade his annual utterances have been mostly rehashes of previous interviews, with something new every three or four years.
    In 1924 he was planning to transmit power by radio.
    In 1927 he was scheming to harness sea power.
    In 1931 he would make all fuels superfluous by tapping cosmic energy.

    Last week Dr. Tesla announced a combination of four inventions which
    would make war unthinkable.

    Nucleus of the idea is a death ray — a concentrated beam of
    sub-microscopic particles flying at velocities approaching that of
    light. The beam, according to Tesla, would drop an army in its tracks,
    bring down squadrons of airplanes 250 miles away. Inventor Tesla would
    discharge the ray by means of:
    1) a device to nullify the impeding effect of the atmosphere on the particles;
    2) a method for setting up a high potential;
    3) a process for amplifying that potential to 50,000,000 volts;
    4) creation of “a tremendous electrical repelling force.” Two of
    these are complete in Dr. Tesla’s mind. The other two await minor
    details.

    Dr. Tesla pointed out that the weapon is purely one of defense, since
    his beam must be generated in great immovable power plants. With
    generators set up on all the world’s national boundaries, no country
    would ever again be able to attack another. Further details, said Dr.
    Tesla, would be unfolded before the Geneva Disarmament Conference.

    The death ray, always exciting to laymen, is an old familiar to
    scientists. After the interplanetary “space ship,” it is probably the
    most popular gadget in pseudoscientific fiction.Even in Herbert George
    Wells’s shrewdly written War of the Worlds (1898), the first
    act of arriving Martians is to spray spectators with a death beam.

    In real life death rays have been announced time & again, but never
    convincingly demonstrated.
    When one Harry Grinnell-Matthews loudly
    announced a death ray some years ago in England, Physicist Robert
    Williams Wood of Johns Hopkins said he would stand 65 ft. from the
    apparatus and invite Mr. Grinnell-Matthews to turn on his radiations
    full blast.
    Last month in Omaha the Inventors’ Congress was informed by
    its President Albert G. Burns that he had witnessed a death ray
    demonstration staged by a Clevelander named Antonio Longoria. Rabbits,
    dogs and cats, said President Burns, were killed instantly, their blood
    turned to water
    .

    But Inventor Longoria said he would withhold his secret
    until invasion threatened the U. S.

    Excellent is Dr. Tesla’s health, but he looks now & then beyond
    the grave. When he is reminded that in some quarters his pronouncements
    are written off as senile hallucinations.
    he replies with simple
    dignity:
    “The opinion of the world does not affect me. I have placed as
    the real values in my life what follows when I am dead.”

    A Military Monopoly
    By LAWRENCE J. KORBDEC. 21, 1996

    At the beginning of this decade, 15 major companies competed for defense
    business. But after 22 mergers, there will be only two mega-companies
    — Lockheed Martin Loral and Boeing McDonnell Douglas — and three
    ”major” companies, Hughes, Raytheon and Northrop.Since the combined defense sales of Hughes, Raytheon and Northrop are
    less than either of the two giants (counting Boeing and McDonnell
    Douglas as one corporation), there is little doubt that the three
    smaller companies will eventually have to merge if they are to compete.
    This would leave the nation with three mega-companies competing for
    nearly $100 billion worth of military business annually.
    Three companies bidding for about $100 billion in annual business from
    the Pentagon would not be healthy. It would be a near monopoly.

    “What made me think of Raytheon and the money involved was that in
    making plans for the strike Trump has as part of his war planning team
    the Steve Mnuchin, Secretary of the Treasurer, Wilbur Ross, the Commerce
    Secretary, and Gary Cohn, Director of the National Economic Council.

    Gary is a former investment banker formerly the president and chief operating officer of Goldman Sachs.

    ‘Curious George‘

    Co-Author Found Dead

    By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS 2/8/2006 6:17 PM PST

    The bloodied body of a collaborator on “Curious George” books and films
    was found covered in garbage bags in the driveway of his home.

    Alan Shalleck’s body was there for at least a day while neighbors
    passed by, assuming it was a heap of trash, before a maintenance man
    discovered it Tuesday. Police were treating the case as a possible
    homicide, spokeswoman Sgt. Gladys Cannon said, but she wouldn’t disclose
    details about how he died.

    Curious George, the famous television monkey, was created by Alan J. Shalleck and Margaret Rey.

    Shalleck was murdered in 2006 just 3 days before the Curious George movie was released.

    He had been planning to expose the true
    identity of George H. W. Bush as the “Curious George” son of inventor
    Nikola Tesla’s Nazi accountant, George H. Scherff Sr.

    Was The Devious And Inquisitive ‘Curious George’ Television Monkey Created After Daddy Bush?

    Some say the televison monkey’s co-writer, Alan J. Shalleck was recently killed for wanting to expose that Daddy Bush is really the son of inventor Nikola Tesla’s Nazi accountant, George H. Scherff, Sr.

    18 Jan 2007

    By Greg Szymanski

    In February 2006, a story appeared in an Orlando Florida daily newspaper about the murder of Alan J. Shalleck, the co-writer of the “Curious George” books. He was also instrumental in bringing the very curious little monkey to television.

    Here are the first three paragraphs to the story:

    “Updated: 2:54 p.m. ET Feb. 9, 2006

    ORLANDO , Fla. – Two men have been charged with first-degree murder in the death of Alan J. Shalleck, 76, who co-wrote “Curious George” books and helped bring the very curious little monkey to television.

    Rex Spears Ditto, 29, and Vincent Puglisi, 54, were arrested shortly before midnight on Wednesday and confessed to a home invasion, murder and robbery of Shalleck, Sgt. Gladys Cannon of the Boynton Beach police said Thursday.

    Shalleck’s bloodied body was discovered Tuesday under a pile of plastic garbage bags in a driveway at Royal Manor Estates by a maintenance supervisor who went to haul away what appeared to be a pile of trash, police said.”

    What makes this story even more interesting, according to several patriot researchers, is that the inquisitive and devious little monkey was named after George H. W. Bush. Further, the creation of the monkey involves the great inventor, Nikola Tesla, two of his Jewish immigrant friends who survived the Holocaust and the “Curious George” fact that Daddy Bush may actually be the son of Tesla’s traitor accountant, George H. Scherff Sr.

    Regarding the creation of the “Curious George” television monkey and the recent murder of one of the monkey’s creator, patriot Brother John apprised the Arctic Beacon with these very “Curious George” yet to be verified facts:

    FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DO NOT KNOW THE REAL STORY OF HOW THE CHARACTER “CURIOUS GEORGE” THE MONKEY WAS CREATED…WELL THEN, YOU ARE IN FOR A REAL TREAT…

    DURING THE 1940’S, THE GREATEST INVENTOR WHOEVER LIVED, DR. NIKOLA TESLA WAS VERY GOOD FRIENDS WITH TWO JEWISH IMMIGRANTS WHO WERE WRITERS/ARTISTS: H.A. & MARGARET REY.
    THE REYS HAD JUST BARELY ESCAPED FROM THE NAZIS WHILE FLEEING NAZI-OCCUPIED FRANCE ON BICYCLES…THE REYS WERE TELLING DR. TESLA ABOUT THEIR ORDEAL WITH THE NAZIS AND COMPARED THE NAZIS TO A BUNCH OF EVIL, DEVIOUS MONKEYS!
    TESLA LAUGHED AND THEN TOLD THEM HIS OWN STORY ABOUT AN EVIL, DEVIOUS LITTLE NAZI “MONKEY” NAMED GEORGE H. SCHERFF JR. THE SON OF HIS ACCOUNTANT GEORGE H. SCHERFF SR.
    TESLA TOLD THEM THAT GEORGE WAS EVIL, DEVIOUS & AS “CURIOUS” AS A MONKEY! HE WAS ALWAYS SNOOPING AROUND TRYING TO STEAL FROM TESLA & GETTING INTO TROUBLE BECAUSE HE WAS JUST SO CURIOUS!
    TESLA SUGGESTED TO H.A. & MARGARET REY THAT THEY WRITE CHILDRENS’ BOOKS ABOUT A DEVIOUS, EVIL “LITTLE” MONKEY THAT WAS ALWAYS GETTING HIMSELF INTO TROUBLE BASED ON
    THE “ESCAPADES” OF GEORGE H. SCHERFF JR. AKA: GEORGE H.W. BUSH. THEY NAMED THAT DEVIOUS EVIL LITTLE MONKEY,
    “CURIOUS GEORGE!”
    THE REST IS HISTORY! NOW YOU KNOW HOW THE EVIL, DEVIOUS LITTLE MONKEY “CURIOUS GEORGE” WAS REALLY CREATED!
    “CURIOUS GEORGE” THE EVIL, DEVIOUS LITTLE MONKEY WAS NAMED AFTER GEORGE H.W. BUSH! UNLIKE THE REAL GEORGE, THE FICTIONAL CARTOON CHARACTER “CURIOUS GEORGE” IS NOT A NAZI.
    THE C.I.A. HAD THE CO-AUTHOR OF CURIOUS GEORGE, ALAN J. SHALLECK MURDERED TWO MONTHS AGO. SHALLECK WAS MURDERED TO PREVENT HIM FROM TALKING ABOUT WHO CURIOUS GEORGE WAS REALLY NAMED AFTER…GEORGE H. SCHERFF JR. AKA: GEORGE H.W. BUSH! EVIDENTLY, DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES!
    SHALLECK WAS MURDERED BY THE C.I.A. JUST THREE DAYS BEFORE A MOVIE ABOUT CURIOUS GEORGE THE MONKEY WAS TO BE RELEASED IN MOVIE THEATERS WORLDWIDE. COINCIDENCE? NAH!

    Regarding information that Daddy Bush is actually named George H. Scherff, Jr., and the son of Tesla’s traitor Nazi account, Eric Orion of Florida provided this information as related to the Arctic Beacon after Orion received the following information from notorious Nazi criminal, Otto Skorzeny.
    Is George H.W. Bush Really Prescott Bush’s Son? Or Is He The Son Of Inventor Nikola Tesla’s German-Born Accountant, George H. Scherff, Sr.?
    Eric Orion in his yet to be published book, The Bush Connection, claims SS Nazi, Otto Skorzeny, told him in a death bed confession that Bush has been lying all along about his identity and was born in Germany, the son of Tesla’s accountant.
    21 Jan 2006

    By Greg Szymanski

    The history books say Hitler’s personal body guard and henchman Otto Skorzeny died in 1975.

    Eric Orion of Florida says the former Nazi killer was alive and well only a few years ago, living under a fake CIA alias as a south Florida carpenter.

    According to Orion, Skorzeny died several years ago at the ripe old age of 95 but not before he spilled out his guts to him in a death bed confession.

    And after hearing Skorzeny’s story — a story so bizarre and incredible — it simply leaves mouths hanging wide open, wondering how in the world this could happen in America.

    “I was dating this girl in south Florida and her father turned out to be the feared Nazi SS body guard to Hitler, Otto Skorzeny,” said Orion in an extended conversation from his Florida home, adding Skorzeny spilled the beans himself, not his x-girlfriend who remains tight lipped about her father’s past. “When I met him, he was 90 but looked a lot younger. He was 6’4″ with the biggest hand I ever shook in my life.”

    Recently, Orion also was a guest on Greg Szymanski’s radio show, The Investigative Journal, where he claimed, based on Skorzeny’s allegations, the American government has been lying since 1945 about the identities and whereabouts of thousands of former Nazis given safe haven and living in America today.

    Orion also said Skorzeny gave him “a shoebox full” of never before published pictures, linking many high-ranking American officials to Nazi war criminals, as well as information that George H. Bush has been lying about his true identity and was really the adopted son of Prescott Bush.

    He also claims that Hitler was given safe haven in America and Nazi criminals, Dr. Josef Mengele, nicknamed the Angel of Death, and Nazi SS killer, Reinhard Gehlen, were still alive and walking the streets of America as of three years ago.

    “I met with Skorzeny on three separate occasions for roughly five hours and he said that George H.W. Bush was and is a SS Nazi spy born in Germany as George H. Scherff, Jr.,” said Orion. “He told me that Bush was really the son of Dr. Nikola Tesla’s German born, illegal immigrant accountant, George H. Scherff, Sr., being later adopted by Prescott Bush.

    “Apparently, according to Skorzeny, in 1938, Hitler sent 14-year-old George Jr. to befriend, spy and kill Tesla, who later on Jan. 6, 1943, was actually killed by Skorzeny and SS Nazi Reinhard Gehlen. Bush, however, later forged a birth certificate while Prescott Bush, a known Nazi, adopted him, covered his real identity and later helped him join the Navy under false pretenses.”

    Asked if he thought Skorzeny had any reason to lie and why he was chosen to hear his deathbed confession, Orion added:

    “No, I believe he is for real. His pictures matched up with the history books and he told me he was coming forward with this information because the Bush family had cheated him out of a lot of money over the years. In the end, I think he wanted to get even and there were so many specifics that later I verified, leading me to believe he was telling me the truth.

    “I also spent five years researching this information and have written a book, called The Bush Connection, yet to be published. Like I said my book took five years of painstaking research to complete and my motivation was to show Americans how our government illegally brought over 50,000 Nazis to America to create a New World Order and Fourth Reich in America under the guidance of George H. Bush.

    “I also want to say that I’ve learned throughout the course of my research that our government is still protecting these Nazis, like they did Skorzeny up until his death.”

    After learning about the damaging Bush information and the underground network to hide Nazis, Orion went to the Justice Department for help but instead received nothing but harassment and death threats.

    “They came after me big time,” he said. “Right after I told them I was at my girlfriend’s house and her mother went white as a ghost after receiving a phone call. I think she was informed that I was on to her husband’s identity.

    “That night after I left Skorzeny’s house, I was followed, run off the road and it looked like one of the men in the car had a handgun. They are also tracking my mail, as well as hacking into my computer and keeping a close eye on my activities.”

    Besides the Bush allegations, Skorzeny laid several other bombshells on Orion, including the truth about Adolph Hitler’s death and that Bush’s role as a war hero was intentionally fabricated.

    “Skorzeny told me he helped fake Hitler’s suicide in 1945 and actually shot Hitler’s double between the eyes, leaving him there in place of Adolph,” said Orion. “He then said that he flew off with Hitler and SS Nazi pilot Hanna Reitsch to safety in Austria. Skorzeny then told me he turned himself in to Americans and later helped co-found the American CIA with Nazi George H. Scherff, Jr., aka George H. Bush.”

    Orion also said that Skorzeny confirmed reports that already surfaced in the New York Post made by an old war buddy of Bush, Chester Mierzejewski, who questioned Bush’s account of how his plane went down during World War II, leading to his so-called “hero status.”

    In the article, Mierzejewski, who was a recipient of The Distinguished Flying Cross, claimed he had a bird’s eye view of the Bush cockpit when he saw Bush abandon his crew and bail out, leaving his two crew members to die.

    Robert Flood, a former B-17 bombardier, also claimed Bush was “no war hero,” saying he violated the primary rule for a captain of a multi-crew aircraft.

    “The pilot never leaves the airplane with anybody in it,” said Flood.

    Orion said that Skorzeny told him the CIA is really Hitler’s “Third Reich” in America, the agency being created to manipulate intelligence and lie to the American people.

    Going back to the stolen Tesla technology and the CIA’s role, he added:

    “The CIA uses stolen Tesla technology, according to Skorzeny, to spy on Americans and manipulate the weather. There are thousands of satellites orbiting the earth that project high intensity positively charged laser beams to certain areas on the earth. These positively charged laser beams enable the New Word Order Nazis/C.I.A. to use their stolen Tesla Technology to manipulate the weather & to transmit extremely low frequency “elf” waves with subliminal messages for mind control purposes.

    “When HAARP is active, giant space based lasers simultaneously aim their beams to a central “spot” on earth. That “spot” will then experience severe droughts, hurricanes, tornados or earthquakes. Spontaneous Human Combustion or “SHC” occurs when these lasers are pointed directly at human beings.

    “Hurricane Katrina was allegedly a man-made disaster. Bush was quick to mention that it was a “natural disaster.” It was created to distract America’s attention away from Bush’s latest unqualified fascist neo-con, Supreme Court of Injustice appointees.

    “Eyewitnesses allegedly saw the levees in New Orleans being blown up by US soldiers after they had survived the storm intact. Katrina was a low, Category 3 storm. Not a CAT 4 or 5 as initially claimed! The levees were intentionally blown up to help Bush’s neo-con insurance company cronies. Most homes are covered by wind damage insurance only. Not flooding. If the houses were damaged by flooding instead of wind damage then the insurance companies do not have to pay out any claims.

    “This man-made diversion allowed Bush & OPEC the opportunity to “rape” the American tax payers once again by increasing the price of gas for no legitimate reason other than to make billions of dollars of profit at their expense!”

    Biography

    For a full biography see “John George Trump,” by Louis Smullin. In
    Memorial Tributes: National Academy of Engineering, volume 3 (1989), pages 332-337.

    John G. Trump, 1907-1985, BS in electrical engineering, 1929,
    Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn; MA 1931, Columbia University; ScD in
    electrical engineering, 1933, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
    (MIT), became a research associate at MIT in 1933, assistant professor
    in 1941, and professor in 1952. Working with Robert J. Van de Graaff, he
    designed one of the first million-volt x-ray generators used in cancer
    therapy.

    He was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1950, and to the National Academy of Engineering in 1977.

    During World War II John Trump served as a member of the Steering
    Committee overseeing the U.S. government research laboratory, the
    Radiation Laboratory, which was located on the MIT campus, Division 14
    (radar) of the National Defense Rsearch Committee. This Laboratory was
    responsible for research and production of radar systems. Trump was also
    the Head of Division 12, Field Service, in the Radiation Laboratory, as
    well as the director of the BBRL (British Branch of the Radiation
    Laboratory) when it was established in 1944 in Malvern, England.

    After the war he co-founded, with Robert Van de Graaff and Denis
    Robinson, the High Voltage Engineering Corporation to manufacture
    generators for use in nuclear research, industrial processing,
    radiography, and medicine. Trump directed the High Voltage Research
    Laboratory on the MIT campus from 1946 to 1980.

    The focus of his research was high voltage phenomena, the
    acceleration of electrons to high energies, and the interaction of
    radiation with living and non-living matter.

    Scope and Contents of the Collection

    The collection contains the papers of John G. Trump, 1907-1985,
    professor of electrical engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of
    Technology (MIT). It includes material about Trump’s study of the use of
    energized electrons to disinfect municipal sludge; patents issued to
    Trump and Robert J. Van de Graaff; and information about Trump’s
    involvement with professional associations and other professional
    activities.

    One can also find in this collection administrative and research
    records of the MIT High Voltage Research Laboratory, which Trump
    directed from 1946 to 1980.

    During World War II, Trump was on leave from MIT serving in
    leadership positions at the U.S. government radar research laboratory,
    the Radiation Laboratory, part of Division 14 (Radar) of the National
    Defense Research Committee (NDRC). Documents relating to his work on the
    Steering Committee of the lab and as director of the British Branch of
    the Radiation Laboratory (BBRL) are government records and are held in
    the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) Northeast
    region.

    In the 1970s John Trump also studied the application of the use of a
    high voltage accelerator in treating wastewater. An intense electron
    beam from a high voltage accelerator was used successfully as the
    deactivating agent in the treatment of municipal wastewater sludge. In
    pilot plant studies by the High Voltage Research Laboratory, a prototype
    system erected at one of Boston’s wastewater treatment plants
    demonstrated continuous on-line treatment providing bacterial and viral
    disinfection.

    A Better Future For All Of Us.

    Rick Heskey

    Kampf gegen die Klimamafia und Klimaterroristen

    An die Deutschen und alle die, die die deutsche Sprache verstehen – die Übersetzung ins Englische folgt später.

    Es ist Zeit aufzuwachen, bevor Deutschland wieder mal vorne weg ins Feuer des Krieges fällt!
    Fangen wir mal mit fundamentalen Erkenntnissen an, der Weg zum Krieg bzw. dessen Vermeidung wird sich dem Geiste eröffnen!


    Das Problem der schwachen Behandlung der 3-dimensionalen Betrachtung des Wasserkreislaufs liegt darin, dass der Mensch in der Regel nur mit der 2-Dimensionalität des Wassers zu tun hat, also dem Wasser, was er oberflächlich leicht betrachten kann.

    Mit den Flüssen und Seen ist er direkt konfrontiert, von den Wolken aber hat er kaum eine Ahnung und von den inter-klimazellularen Wind-Wasser-Strömen haben nicht einmal die ausreichend Kenntnis, die es beruflich sollten. Zudem erwartet der Mensch keine unmittelbare Gefahr von oben.

    Es ist sogar anzunehmen, dass der Mensch durch die Industrialisierung, Instrumentalisierung, Wissenschaftsgläubigkeit und die allgemeine Obrigkeitshörigkeit vorhandenes kulturelles Wissen über den Verlauf des himmlischen Wassers verloren hat. Die Vieh-Nomaden betrachten heute noch regelmäßig den Himmel, um die nächste frische Wiese für ihre Herden zu orten.

    Für mich habe ich diese Fähigkeit durch Aneignung von Basiswissen der Meteorologie und eigene Beobachtung wiedererlangt, um die Klimakontrolle zu entschlüsseln.

    Allerdings habe ich sehr bescheiden angefangen, das Wissen Stückweise ausgebaut, neue Erkenntnisse gewonnen und mich jedesmal über die nächste Dimension der Abhängigkeiten und Auswirkungen erschrocken. Meines Erachtens ist das Kernelement des Aufwachens die Sprache und zwar die Zerlegung des NLP-Gewerks (Beispiel: Beispiel Neuro-Linguistische-Programmierung anhand einer Verkaufgesprächsführung | Quelle – weitere Infos siehe weiter unten) der Klimamafia. So habe ich mein Gegen-NLP entwickelt.

    ICH NENNE DIE DINGE BEIM NAMEN!!

    Die Rückeroberung der eigenen Sprache ist der Weg der Befreiung!!

    Klimakontrolle ist persönlicher Angriff auf jeden Menschen, ja sogar auf jedes Lebewesen, jede lebendige Zelle.
    Somit ist die Klimakontrolle ein grenzenloses Verbrechen, ungeachtet der großen Verbrechen die zusätzlich begangen werden, um sie zu bewerkstelligen.
    Das Gegenteil der Lüge ist die Wahrheit! Mann, Hansen, Schellnhuber, Rahmsdorf sind Lügner!
    Verteidige Dich, Deine Familie und Dein Land durch GEGEN-#NLP!
    Neuro-Linguistische-Programmierung!

    So appelliere ich an alle, die sich über #Chemtrails aufregen, die Schaden durch Vitamin D-Mangel, Überschwemmungen, Dürren, Atemwegserkrankungen, Demenz erlitten haben und all die, die sich um ihre Kinder, Eltern, Freunde, Tiere, Pflanzen und alle anderen Lebewesen sorgen, die bewussten Umweltschützer, die Antiimperialisten, die Freiheits- und Friedensliebenden, also letztlich alle die, die als freie und gesunde Menschen leben wollen, bitte unterstützt bei der Aufklärung der trägen Masse von Mitmenschen.

    Wir brauchen nicht alle, sondern nur eine kritische Masse, um der trägen Masse eine neue Richtung vorgeben zu können, denn die Betrüger arbeiten nach der selben Methodik. Sie arbeiten mit Lug und Trug, wir aber können mit Wissen und Erkenntnis vorankommen.

    Bitte lest meine Artikel und verwendet sie, verwendet meine Tweetsammlungen, meine gesammelten modularen Kommentare oder schreibt eigene Blogs und Kommentare, aber seid mehr aktiv gegen die Klimakontroll-Mafia. Begreift alles, was die Mafia von sich gibt umgekehrt, begreift dass alles, was durch “Klimwandel” kommen soll, das Ergebnis der Klimakontrolle ist.

    Begreift, dass die Klimakontrolle gerade in den Ozeanen das Fundament der globalen Nahrungskette außer Gefecht setzt. Deswegen schreiben die Propagandahuren der #Klimamafia immer wieder über die “Gefährdung der Nahrungs-Sicherheit durch den Klimawandel”. Deren “Sicherheit” ist unsere Unsicherheit und immer auch Massenmord. Das mit dem “Massensterben durch Klimawandel” ist also ernst gemeint, nur dass sie es bewirken und beabsichtigen.

    chemtrail-assault
    Morning Chemtrail sky in Raphine, VA 2/7/2017

    Morgellons Syndrome AKA Morgellons Disease is a direct result of the nano-particulates being sprayed in our sky in the form of Chemtrails and I will try to put forth concrete evidence that shows this to be true. Chemtrails are directly linked to Morgellons and Transhumanism…


    There are many people talking about Chemtrails and even more out there are trying to cover the information up, including the Main Stream Media. If you are here and this happens to be a new topic to you, don’t feel bad, there is a lot of money and energy being put into the cover up of the infamous Geoengineering program (AKA the Stratospheric Aerosol Spraying and or the Solar Radiation Management programs) better known in pop culture as Chemtrails.


    My goal in writing this article is to get the word out to those who may have never heard about Chemtrails or may have heard of them but were told it was “Just a Conspiracy Theory”. With that said, you might want to get your aluminum foil out of the cabinet because by the time you are done reading this article, I hope to have you educated well enough that you will find others calling you a tin foil hat conspiracy theorist when you try to tell them what you have learned here today.

    So what does this term Chemtrail actually mean? Well it was born out of the observations of early researchers who never had any initial intentions to become Conspiracy Researchers and were just “Average Joes” like you and me. They just happened to notice something very odd about those “Con Trails” they remembered seeing as kids growing up when curiously looking up at the airplanes as they flew over head. Probably remembering their thoughts and dreams of what it would be like to fly in an airplane or even to become a pilot someday.

    The term Chemtrail can be broken down into the two words that form this combination word, which means “Chemical Trail”. Thus combining the two words gives us the pop culture term “Chemtrail”…

    See back around 2007 (even earlier in the case of Clifford Carnicom, we’ll get to him in just a bit) people started noticing that those “con-trials” began to start “sticking around” a lot longer than they had remembered as kids and they started wondering and talking about them. Eventually some others got interested enough to begin researching them and testing the air and ground near where they were observing these smoke trails that were staying around long after those jet planes went over their heads.

    This in turn lead some other researchers and documentary makers to create one of the first ever feature length documentaries on the subject titled “What in the World Are They Spraying” which was released in 2010 – 23 October 2010 (DVD premiere) according to the IMDB database…


    Before we move on , I would like for you to watch the following documentary which was produced by Clifford Carnicom himself and released in 2005. Clifford Carnicom used his own funds and did not ask for anything in return for this documentary. The above documentary, while it is a good source of information, is not necessary for the understanding of this article. The Clifford Carnicom documentary below will give a better understanding of the original investigation and the kinds of resistance you will encounter when trying to get anyone to investigate or even acknowledge this criminal activity because it shows just how far the hand of conspiratorial participation reaches when it comes to the complete and outright denial campaign that has been launched to coverup Chemtrails.

     

    In this documentary Clifford Carnicom also outlines the various co-conspirators involved in the massive coverup operation of the secret chemtrail campaign which is being carried out by the Military Industrial Complex under the authority of those in charge behind the scenes. As a small “for instance”, some of the traitorous cowards he exposes in the documentary are as follows:

    Lt Col. Michael K. Gibson, USAF officially declared chemtrails to be a hoax on September 11, 2000 saying: “The chemtrail hoax has been investigated and refuted by established and accredited universities, scientific organizations, and major media publications”.

    Later, on May 22, 2001, Colonel Walter M. Washabaugh, USAF repeated (VERBATUM) Lt. Col. Michael K. Gibson’s statement on chemtrails and neither man opted to provide any type of detailed list of the supposed refuting parties.

    Another coward that was exposed in the documentary was Charles H. Taylor of North Carolina House of Representatives. He is a participating traitor in the avid chemtrail denial campaign.

    Other co-conspirators in the plot to coverup the truth about chemtrails are:

    Harold Heilsnis – Director for public communications Office of the Secretary of Defense

    Carol Browner – Administrator at the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) in December of 1999 (Dec 9th to be exact) through her “Officials”, acknowledged “citizen concerns” about chemtrail emissions but has gone on the record stating that the EPA is not aware of any such applications by such aircraft.

    As you can see by the efforts of Madison Star Moon, the EPA continues to deny the existence of the chemtrail operations to this day along with the many other traitorous alphabet government agencies out there…

    Even Greenpeace will not comment and has gone on record stating they are unable to make any comment on chemtrails and that they do “not have any official position on this matter”.

    Greenpeace is just one more of the 501(c)(3) COWARDS who do as they are told by the governments so they can keep their illegal tax shelters while they continue to bilk hundreds of thousands out of unsuspecting, good hearted people who are genuinely concerned and only want to help…

    Oh Green peace wants your money though and they have crafted some really nice sounding foo foo language to make you THINK they really care. The only thing they REALLY care about is getting suckers to send them money. That’s what Greenpeace REALLY cares about…

    They have these deceitful slogans on the front page of their website:

    Lie #1 – “The Climate can’t wait! Defend people and the planet against attacks on climate progress with a gift to Greenpeace”.

    Lie #2 – “Greenpeace will never stop fighting for a greener, healthier world for our oceans, forests, food, climate, and democracy-no matter what forces stand in our way. Donate to Greenpeace

    Lie #3 – Greenpeace and the environmental movement have a lot of work ahead of us, but we’re going to work harder than ever. When Trump tries to weaken the Paris Climate Agreement, we will resist. When he tries to fast-track dangerous fossil fuel projects like KeystoneXL and the Dakota Access Pipeline, we will stand with frontline communities to stop him. And if Trump and Congress try to hurt us, our neighbors, or our children’s future, we will resist”.

    Really Greenpeace? Just about everyone who is in the know is aware that the Paris Climate Agreement is nothing but just one more farce to pull the wool over the eyes of the sleeping public and fool them into believing the lie that they are the cause of “Global Warming” or actually now it’s “Climate Change” since they were debunked when claiming global warming. They should have stuck with the Global Warming slogan, because now that the Chemtrail campaign is in full force, it actually IS causing  the global climate to warm and in dangerous fashion I might add…

    220px-official_photo_of_senator_jeff_bingaman_d-nm_2008Also in October of 1999 the now former Senator of New Mexico – Jeff Bingaman floated the Air force lie that chemtrails are simply “normal contrails”. I tell you there seems to be no end to the list of traitors and cowards who are enlisted in this war against the truth about chemtrails. The list just goes on and on and on and on…

    Folks the coverup of the Chemtrail AKA Geoengineering AKA Stratospheric Aerosol Spraying AKA Global Dimming program is very real and very far reaching.

    Even the U.S. TV series, 20/20 news program would not investigate chemtrails when asked to do so by yet another concerned citizen viewer of theirs simply stating that their request was just not selected as a topic they would be covering… REALLY? Instead 20/20 preferred to cover such BS stories as “My Secret Self: A Story of Transgender Children”, or “Privilege in America: Who’s Shutting You Out” as well as other bogus and unimportant topics. They too are just another propagator of propaganda and lies designed to brainwash the sheople and sate their desires to be entertained…


    So how do I go about explaining this to you in a way that you can understand without being turned away by terms that sound so scientific that your brain just fry’s at the thought of even trying to pronounce the word? Well, that is what I am going to attempt to do but be warned, this is graduate level science that is behind all this so you will have to try to pronounce some really scientific sounding words in the course of this exposition on what Chemtrails really are. Not only am I going to attempt to explain to you what they are but I am going to go even further in my attempt to blow your mind by telling you what I believe they are being used for besides climate control and missile defense, as so stated or rather “leaked” by our “gubbermint”…

    chemtrailionospherelayercomposition-nonexhaustive

    The Anatomy of a Chemtrail:

    chemtrail-scullsI want to begin with a fairly exhaustive list of the composition of ingredients that make up the solution from which the chemtrails are made as they are being dispersed in the skies above our heads. I will also try to include a comprehensive glossary of the terms used so you can gain a better understanding of the discussion. The glossary itself will be accessible in the individual links I will provide for each ingredient listed. Just click the ingredient name to get a darn good definition of each item. I will link as many items to an informational article on that item as I can.

    According to the sources I have discovered in my research on Chemtrails the list of ingredients form a powerful and deadly toxic “cocktail of death” for lack of a better term. Aside from being toxic, these Chemtrails also contain other elements (nano-particles) which are intended for another very nefarious use which I will discuss later on.

    Before I list the various intended outcomes or divisions of the chemtrail campaign, I will simply post the most exhaustive list of ingredients I have found that have been reported so far. By doing so first, you will then have a rich table of information to refer back to as you read further.

    Chemtrails Reported Ingredient List:

    So, what is the relationship between this list of ingredients and Chemtrails? That is the million dollar question…

    As it turns out, I have discovered many different or Multi-Faceted uses and or purposes that these Chemtrails (Stratospheric Aerosols) are intended for, of which I am willing to bet there are even possibly others as yet undiscovered.

    Let’s see if I can intelligently list and describe each Facet I’ve discovered and its intended purpose in a way that can be understood by the average layman…

    You can also listen to this amazing interview by Harold Saive of the extremely knowledgeable and highly capable researcher and ghost writer Elana Freeland. This comes from Harold Saive’s blog article which can be found here “The 7 Secret Operations That Will Change Humanity“. Harold’s blog is dedicated to chemtrail research and is quite an amazing treasure trove of information on chemtrails. I highly recommend you take the time to browse his information rich storehouse of chemtrail related investigative research. I am still looking forward to finding more information he may have there on the chemtrail conspiracy.

     

    1.) Weather Modification: This is probably the most widely understood facet, in short we can all probably agree that this facet is self explanatory in that it is implemented to control the weather. Be it stopping the rain or making it rain or even moving a storm from one part of the earth to another or even the creation of a storm or eradication thereof.

    a.) How is this done? This facet is most likely carried out through the use of what is known as Sub-Micron (moisture absorbing) particles. These particles are released into the atmosphere via Stratospheric Aerosol Spraying campaigns and they then will attract and trap the surrounding moisture and lock it inside the particles which are then heated by some means, usually via the HAARP array in Alaska, Russia or whichever country it happens to be above or even via the various NEXRAD or GWEN towers that are scattered throughout the world. In turn then the storm is moved via scalar wave ELF transmissions or by a modified Jet Stream flow via some other related Chemtrail related method(s). One well known method of storm eradication (Thanks to Dane Wigington and his YouTube Channel “The HAARP Report”) is the use of atmospheric heaters like HAARP which will heat up the atmosphere above the storm then, once HAARP is switched off, that air will super cool and fall toward and down through the storm which, because it is super dry air, will then absorb and redistribute that moisture thus neutralizing the storm, literally “Coring out the storm cloud / storm system” relieving it of its moisture content.

    2.) Environmental Geophysical Modification: This facet is probably not so self evident in that it is achieved through the introduction of “Natural Disaster” type scenarios which are really not naturally caused, but instead induced through various nefarious methods such as HAARP induced Earthquakes and or “Geoengineered” Floods Much like what we currently see happening in California today – during late January into to February 2017, most notable of which is the threat of the weakening and damaged Oroville Dam in Oroville, CA. Also remember the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in April of 2010 where Corexit (a highly toxic chemical) was used to “clean up” the oil spill but actually just covered it up and produced a disaster for the fishing industry by creating a massive kill off and contamination of the sea life out there which also became a wide spread disaster because it affected areas around it as well. The fact that oil spills can and  will devastate other areas can be evidenced in this article from wired.com about the widespread damage caused by Hurricane Ivan. This divisional aspect also includes the alteration of the climate and magnetic field via the creation of  a plasma sheath or layer around the planet which is facilitated by the application of barium in the ionosphere which is “baked” by the sun and then further “cooked” by the HAARP array in order to create the most possibly dense layer of plasma in the atmosphere that this technology will allow.

    3.) Electromagnetic Operations: In explanation of what this operation can do to affect the Earth’s atmosphere, Clifford Carnicom has stated in his documentary “Aerosol Crimes”:


    layers1
    Layers of the Earth’s Atmosphere

    As an example of how a small change can produce a major effect on the electrical state of the Earth’s atmosphere from the Troposphere up to and including the Ionosphere, a statement from a Lancaster University study explains:

    ”Although less than 1% of the upper atmosphere becomes ionized, the charged particles make the gas electrically conducting, which completely changes its characteristics. The ionosphere can carry electrical currents, as well as reflect, deflect, and scatter radio waves.”

    A small change in the electrical properties of the upper ( and now lower ) atmosphere completely alters the way in which that shell around the Earth can be used.

    An example of the topic of plasma physics would be a neon tube being filled with an ionized gas which allows energy to be easily sent through that tube to create light in that case. A plasma is an electrically conductive gas, which means that there is a source of ions and electrons within that gas, and these electrons can be used to carry current. We can see that it takes very little change to create a large change in electrical properties of such a tube, and the effectiveness of energy transfer and accumulation is governed mostly by the number of electrons that can be introduced into it, described as electron density, which is an important aspect of the likely goals of the chemtrail aerosol spraying operations.

    ”Multiple measurements of atmospheric conductivity levels, extremely low frequency and very low frequency radiation, as well as magnetic variation support the claims made that the basic electrical properties of our atmosphere have been changed. These two physical properties alone that have been mentioned, that of thermodynamic and electrodynamic change, have the prospect of changing our world so much that even the most conservative of environmentally aware individuals should be aware of the prospect for disturbance and damage. Changes in heat and energy are at the foundation of the life of this planet and all those who dwell upon it.”

    Source: ”Aerosol Crimes” Excerpt: Electromagnetic Aspects of Chemtrail Spraying


    Just the introduction of the barium salts alone creates the ability to change the ionosphere into an electronically charged plasma gas which will then conduct electrical charges, even carry or propagate radio signals. The addition of other hydroscopic (“Water Seeking“) salts and metal cations further creates the ability to convert the atmosphere into an electrically charged medium that can then be exploited electronically for various operations which can take advantage of such a medium. While this kind of talk might excite the intellect of the techno nerd in you, this comes at a very high cost to humanity and human life that should be considered an unacceptable loss…

    4.) Intelligence and Surveillance: There is an article which gives an introduction to what this is along with some of the intended uses as of the time of this article being written. Operators shift to cyber electromagnetic activities you can also find the related Army Field Manual which describes these operations in a good level of detail here FM 3-38 (CEMA). Essentially the powers that should not be are using the Chemtrail campaign to alter the Earth’s climate from ground level all the way out to “Near Earth Orbit” the Ionosphere so that the entire planet is now able to be enveloped in a tightly woven grid of electromagnetic frequency waves of the type and scale of their choosing. This is most likely very closely related to the latest 5G WiFi (Latest, most complete information from Anthony Patch) roll out that is coming soon to the public for cell phone services.
    Lockheed-Martin-AirForceSpaceFence.jpgThis is also related to the Air Force Space Surveillance System known as the Space Fence (The Space Fence is a second-generation space surveillance system currently being built by the US Air Force in order to track artificial satellites and space debris in Earth orbit. Contracts were issued for development and construction in 2014, and the Space Fence is expected to be operational in 2019).

    Nano-Satellite-220px-Estcube-1_2012-12-27.jpg
    ESTCube-1 1U CubeSat

    The space fence will also make heavy use of a new technology known as Nano Satellites or Nano Satellite Technology. The image you see to the right is the ESTCube-1 1U CubeSat. The official description of this Nano Satellite from Wikipedia follows:

    “ESTCube-1 1U CubeSat. Small satellites, or smallsats, are satellites of low mass and size, usually under 500 kg (1,100 lb). While all such satellites can be referred to as small satellites, different classifications are used to categorize them based on mass”.

    Here is an excerpt from the Wikileaks page on Nano satellites or NanoSats for short:


    Nanosatellites:
    The term “nanosatellite” or “nanosat” is applied to an artificial satellite with a wet mass between 1 and 10 kg (2.2 and 22.0 lb). Designs and proposed designs of these types may be launched individually, or they may have multiple nanosatellites working together or in formation, in which case, sometimes the term “satellite swarm” or “fractionated spacecraft” may be applied. Some designs require a larger “mother” satellite for communication with ground controllers or for launching and docking with nanosatellites”.


    Once you understand the scope of these “Electromagnetic Operations you will also understand the links I will reveal later to Morgellons and Transhumanism…

    5.) Dual Use Military Operations (C4 Operations): To start let me define the term C4. C4 is a type of military acronym which translates to “Command, Control, Communications, and Cyber Warfare”.  Now with regard to the C4 mantra, we see some technologies which come into play in this area or division. One technological piece of the puzzle is the HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) array in Alaska which is used to heat and charge the ionosphere in order to transport energy from one location to another (e.g. from point A to point B). In this way HAARP can act as what is described as a “Heave Weapon” which means that, in it’s current incarnation of ionospheric heating, it acts as a “HEAVE TYPE” nuclear device but without the need to detonate such a device. A heave type weapon has the affect of being able to lift the Earth’s magnetic field itself. In this manner it is not hard to conceive that the HAARP array could also be used to generate some type of an EMP wave.

    NOTE: On the theory that HAARP could be used to generate and EMP wave, that is my own speculation at this point and I have not  found concrete evidence which supports this hypothesis yet.

    The uses of this technology range from the enhancement of or interference with communications and guidance systems, including those of airplanes and missiles alike. Other uses for this technology  are radar interference, missile destruction, weather modification, material transport of “micron-sized” particles and even affecting molecular changes in the atmosphere via ELF wave transmissions from the HAARP antennae array.

    6.) Biological Operations: In 1977 the US Senate held hearings on the subject of biological testing by the Department of Defense (DOD) on human subjects WITHOUT their Expressed Informed Consent.

    In the opening statement Senator Kennedy identified the “Key Issue” of these hearings which was and still is “The known use of American Citizens as unwitting human test subjects for open air germ warfare testing conducted in the public domain” by officals of our own government.

    In the course of these hearings, the US Senate simply gave it’s citizens over, willingly and knowingly, to the Military and Pharmacological Industrial Complexes as guinea pigs for Nazi-Styled biological experimentation.

    Keep that in mind the next time a loved one informs you they have been diagnosed with cancer, COPD, or even some other new and deadly exotic disease. I’d also like you to keep that in mind the next time you hear of someone who is afflicted with and or suffering from Morgellons Disease or Morgellons Syndrome as it is alternatively named.

    Morgellons Syndrome, by the way, is the DEFACTO fetal stage of the Transhuman condition or the state of being a Transhuman Hybrid. Morgellons is a very advanced scientific, forced and directed, method of altering a biological life form into a hybridized biological cyborg. This can be witnessed by the enormous body of evidence being brought forward by the study and examination of the various fibers, tubules, biological masses and even complex nano-communications arrays which are being extracted from lesions found on those who suffer advanced stages of Morgellons Syndrome (Morgellons Disease).

    Yes our reality really is getting  just that crazy these days…

    If you reference the above list of chemtrail ingredients, you can begin to see the relationships between many of those ingredients. Of particular interest, with regard to Morgellons Syndrome, you should take note of the peculiar characteristics of the Bio-Nano particles which possess multi-functional and self-assembling properties. Once one understands the various unique properties of each component of the ingredient list, one can then begin to piece together the reasons for the inclusion of such a wide variety of nano-particles in this chemtrail soup.

    Upon further study of the properties of each component in the above list, it becomes apparent what each item may contribute in usefulness with respect to each division of intended uses of the chemtrails being introduced into the Earth’s atmosphere.

    While some of the ingredients satisfy the need of the creation of an electrified atmospheric “grid system” around the planet, still other ingredients can be understood as needed elements by the self-assembling nano-particles in order to begin the process of modifying human subjects to create “hybrid cyborgs”. This process even goes so far as to attempt to alter or modify the DNA structure of those human subjects. The DNA modification is likely what requires the addition of the dried red and white blood cells into the mix.

    Go back, if you will, and re-examine the list of ingredients with this new lens and see if it does not become readily apparent to you, as it does to me, that the chemtrail campaign is THE KEY to many of the strange and exotic phenomena we are now witnessing.

    We are, even now, beginning to see the clues of human hybridization in the news with the recent announcement of “Genetically Modified Syrian Opposition” as so stated in a news conference by the Syrian Ambassador to the United Nations, Dr. Bashar al-Ja’afari.

    7.) Detection and Obscuration of Exotic Propulsion Systems: In essence this is technology that enables  the cloaking of such ships and systems which employ exotic propulsion technology such as anti-gravity and interdimensional drive systems. This technology has been under development by the Military Industrial Complex for decades ever since the advent of operation paper clip and the death of Nikola Tesla along with the subsequent confiscation of his life’s work in the areas of advanced concepts of anti-gravity, electricity, and weapons research like Tesla’s famous death ray which is still denied as existing technology.

    With the ionization of Earth’s atmosphere comes the necessary “particle rich” environment which then enables such propulsion systems.

    It is also safe to assume, based on many observations of anomalies these days, that the military also possesses advanced cloaking technology with which they can now cloak their ships to avoid detection by the naked eye and even many of today’s radar detection systems which are not designed to detect the infra red light spectrum. Take the recent Chilean UFO video as a for instance.

    We are talking “Star Trek” style technology here. The ionized atmosphere also makes it possible to develop technology to detect a cloaked vessel and even the characteristics of an anti-gravity or interdimensional propulsion system which they have created. That very same technology can also enable the creation of the technology necessary to obscure those ships and propulsion systems as well, so it goes without saying that the invention of one system facilitates the invention of another. This has been the course of technology throughout the ages.

    I can tell you with an adequate degree of confidence that we are about to be shown a level of technology that people have only witnessed in Sci-Fi movies and TV shows. In short, Star Trek has now become reality…

    Don’t get too excited though, because from what I can tell, those in charge are not so benevolent as one might hope. In fact it is much more likely that they are of the malevolent Monarch persuasion. Hate to be a downer, but what has been the usual case with regard to those in charge? Ask that question to yourself and then answer it in your most honest opinion.

    8.) Population Control: In this division it is obvious that any number of deadly diseases can be released over a specific targeted area with the desired affect of possible eradication of entire population centers as a form of punishment or control via terrorism with respect to mental intimidation of other populations or population centers in order to coerce compliance of specifically targeted people groups.

    9.) Adaption of the Planetary Climate for Alien or Alternative Life Form Habitation: This is a possible consideration because  of the observations in the changes to the climate and atmosphere as well as the experimentation being witnessed with the obviously desired end result of the creation of transhuman, hybrid biological cyborg life forms (e.g. Morgellons Victims).

    10.) Electronic Broadcasting of Diseases or Cures through ELF Wavelengths: This division may or may not be that far developed but it is worth considering since we now know that everything has a resonant vibration and that is because we now understand that all matter is made up of some form of energy at specific vibrations. The faster the vibration, the less solid matter becomes, so it is most likely possible to eventually, if they are not already able, to single out one specific human being and introduce either a virus or cure into that particular system via vibrational signals and DNA reconstruction technology. This level of control of selection however, IMHO, would require the implementation of some kind of unique identifier. This is where my position on the RFID chip has changed and I now believe that the Mark of the Beast will require some combination of the RFID Chip and a state of Transhumanism or ultimate DNA modification which will most likely be sold in the light of being a beneficial “DNA Upgrade”, we already see such ideas being promoted in commercials on TV. Such as in the Android DNA phone Commercial that depicts a young man being strapped into a harness and then having his brain and DNA modified through a type of injection or “upgrade” from an Android phone which is strapped to said harness. This type of DNA modification is currently discussed in today’s forums as “Third Strand DNA”.


    Now, remembering what I showed you about the relationship between chemtrails and Morgellons Syndrome and the inevitable path it will take to Transhumanism, if you still need a bit more convincing that this is one of the intended outcomes of chemtrails, then please read the following excerpt from this article titled “Morgellons, Chemtrails, Depopulation, Transhumanism Connections & Solutions”

    “Morgellons is an umbrella term which is used to identify a score of different symptoms.  Ultimately it is transhumanism.  The integration of mankind with machines, computers, and artificial intelligence.

     Morgellons is not a disease. It is a process. It is a form of forced/directed evolution of the human genome. It is the fetal stage of transhumanism, and it is upon us.

     This stealth project is being carried out with the use of the daily chemtrail operations, which are happening globally. There is no escape. The chemtrail operations are terraforming the earth and everything on it, including you.

    Many have died. While the CDC and Kaiser Permanente drag their heels with its so-called study, humans are perishing, suffering “unbelievable” symptoms and are left alone with nowhere to turn.

    Countless patients have been improperly diagnosed with “Delusions of Parasitosis.”

    Just before the “explosion” of Morgellons here in the United States, the CDC sent letters out to physicians across the country stating that they were seeing an increase of patients with DOP. Coincidence?  I think not. They were covering their tracks, so to speak.

    Last I knew, delusions do not cause oozing skin lesions, flying insects, worms, fungus, molds, plants, colored fibers and fiber bundles, polka-dotted, multi-colored plaques or crystals of different shapes/colors. These are just a few of the symptoms associated with this mutation process, based on one’s genetic pre-disposition.

    Morgellons sufferers are far from delusional. They are outsourced bioresearch test subject for the Global Governments, and so are you.

    With regard to transhumanism and the planet-wide energy grid envelope, this is how Satan will take control of every last person who opts to take the mark of the beast. You should be aware that AS SOON as someone is marked with the Mark of the Beast, they will be instantly changed and will be under the permanent control of Satan and will never be able to be redeemed by God after that. Accepting the Mark of the Beast is a one way ticket to hell and there will be no turning back nor changing your mind. Once you are marked, that’s it, that is the end of the line…

    In closing I just want to make the observation that given what we know and that which we are discovering, it is a sure bet that the world is now in the throws of a major transformation. That transformation, based on the evidence I have seen, is not one that is going to be a pleasant transition.

    When we review what Antony Patch has revealed about the intentions of the CERN crew trying to “rip the veil” and open an interdimensional portal, probably to hell itself, and their intent to connect Earth and Saturn via the implementation of a Birkland Current generated by the CERN LHC itself, the rest of the technology explained in relation to what chemtrails really are, makes things look a bit less optimistic.

    When you consider that the chemtrail campaign is designed to create a charged electrical plasma grid around the planet, and create transhuman, hybrid humanoid cyborgs along with the intentions of those in charge of the true operations of CERN, it all gives that much more credence to what is foretold in the Bible about the End Times Prophecy. Even if YOU PERSONALLY don’t believe in God or don’t want to believe in God, you will need to square with the fact that the powers that should not be DO believe in God and in Satan. Then you also need to square with the fact that they have the entire scenario flipped upside down and are regarding Satan as the One True God and God as the Devil.

    If you are not yet squared away in your relationship with God then you are going to have a very hard time with what is about to come flying into reality very soon. You may not want to hear it or you might just consider me to be off my rocker, but what is about to be unleashed is not going to be pretty, in fact it will be extremely terrifying. It might seem cool and exciting for a short season but once the true intentions of those in charge of this world are revealed, everyone is going to have a really bad day…


    Bonus interview of Clifford Carnicom on Coast to Coast AM on May 22, 2007 with George Nory…


    Well that is all I have for now, so I bid you farewell and I urge you to seek out Jesus Christ because he is THE ONLY way to God the Father and only he can save your soul…

    The Transhuman Control Matrix

    We are already in the “Pre-Build-Out phase”. This Smart Dust enhanced Neural Lace is already inside of all of us now… It isn’t coming as Elon Musk has been saying, it is already here and growing inside our bodies now…

    What is the Transhuman Control Matrix? Well if you have been following this blog for any length of time then you will know that I have published several articles on this topic, including articles about Chemtrails such as my latest article titled “Chemtrails – What Are They Really | Full Spectrum Dominance“.

    In this article I am going to explain to you what the end goal is with regard to the Chemtrail spraying campaign in our skies and how that relates to Morgellons Syndrome (AKA Morgellons Disease) and Elon Musk’s pet term “Neural Lace”.

    Recently on March 2, 2017 a gentleman by the name of Ulf Diestelmann from Canada published his findings of an investigation he performed with a friend of his where they tested samples from the environment around his ranch and also samples of his own skin for signs of what is falling on us out of the skies. What they discovered or rather exposed, will shock many people reading this to their very core. I used his footage (with his permission of course) in my latest video which is posted below to help explain what is happening and I will also include a direct link to his video in the section below this article labeled “Source Information Links”.



    The End Game:

    By now you may have probably figured out that those trails in the skies, left by various aircraft passing overhead, that linger for as long as 10 hours are not simply contrails. If you still do think they are contrails, do not feel bad for misunderstanding because there has been a massive and ongoing cover up by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and various other alphabet agencies for a very long time with respect to chemtrails (AKA Geoengineering, Stratospheric Aerosol Injection, Solar Radiation Management, and or Global Dimming).

    As recently as March 24, 2017 the subject has now been breached by the Main Stream Media in a PR article titled “US scientists launch world’s biggest solar geoengineering study“. Because those of us in the Truther community have forced the subject so far out into the open it can no longer be ignored or covered up (Madison Star Moon for one has been relentless at this), they are now going public about it. They will, however, use their usual favorite information weapon of “PR Spin” to paint the whole scenario with pretty pastel colors and tell the public how harmless the Chemtrail campaign is and how they are “Just Now” starting it in an attempt to cover up the fact is has been going on since the late 1990’s.

    The article tries to insinuate that this is only just now beginning and the composition of the mixture to be sprayed is only going to be “Water Vapor” at first and that they are doing this to “Save the Planet”. Oh how nice of those people who in the past have proven to be so greedy and evil that they could care less who gets hurt, maimed, or killed for their own profit, but I digress…

    In my research I have been able to observe what others have uncovered about the ingredients in these Chemtrails and have also shown the various science methods being used to create something called “Self Replicating Nanostructures” I call them “self Assembling Bio-Nano Machines” because that is really what they are. You can examine the work and study of Clifford Carnicom (Carnicom Institute) and Sofia Smallstorm (AboutTheSky.com) as well as other researchers who have been digging and exposing what these Chemtrails are really about.

    Another tireless researcher / truther is Deborah Tavares of StopTheCrime.net. She exposes the GWEN towers and is currently working to expose the new 5G roll out and has also exposed the latest tricks on people with regard to fake analog electric meters being placed at residences when the owners are requesting the Smart Meters be removed and replaced with the old analog meters and how those replacement analog meters actually contain hidden smart meters inside them.

    You have to understand the scheme is not just about the Chemtrails in the sky, that is only a part of the entire operation. The Military Industrial Complex has been carrying this out for some time and they are also employing such tools as the GWEN Towers, NEXRAD “Doppler Radar” arrays, and the HAARP Array in Alaska and probably others from other countries with the cooperation of those governments because this is a UN Agenda and so it has global support.

    If you did not know already it is backed by the hidden powers (Families and Secret Societies) which run the world and it is part of their agenda to take absolute control of the world for their own benefit. If you do your own digging you will discover those behind this are the Rockefellers, the Rothschilds, the Gates (Bill and Melinda), the Illuminati, the Free Masons, the Committee of 300, the RIIA (Royal Institute of International Affairs AKA The Chattam House) and several other secret societies and family lines including George Soros. That is for another article, but the information is out there and available for research and you can also find articles on this blog about it as well.

    Suffice it to say, the end game is to get this stuff growing inside all of us and with the roll out of the new 5G WiFi  world wide network (You can find an excellent video of Anthony Patch on this subject here as he has researched it and broken it down), use it to actually modify our DNA from 2 strands into that elusive “Third Strand DNA” they have been chasing for centuries. Information can be found at places like those working on the Avatar Project at 2045.com. There are other organizations as well. In fact there are SO MANY organizations working toward this goal it becomes a daunting task just to keep up with the sheer numbers. In short, this can be likened to a new arms race only this race is toward the goal of immortality and full spectrum dominance of the entire planet including the people and resources here.

    I know many of you will have a hard time believing this but the hard evidence is all around you if you just look and do your own research, even CNN published an article about smart dust back in 2010 titled “‘Smart dust’ aims to monitor everything“:

    STORY HIGHLIGHTS
    • ‘Smart dust’ refers to tiny sensors that would monitor everything on Earth
    • The concept was dreamed up by an academic in the 1990s
    • But it is becoming increasingly real, as companies deploy wireless sensor networks
    • HP says it aims to put a trillion sensors all over the globe

    The technology has come leaps and bounds since the 1990’s and the sensors are now smaller than half the width of a DNA Molecule and now they even figured out how to get the arrays to “build themselves”. They discovered how to do that part a long time ago too. That is revealed in the last half of my recent documentary on Morgellons and Transhumanism. All they have to do is put the right ingredients together in the right conditions and the nano machines make themselves.

    With nano particles this small now they are literally absorbed right into your skin and then they work their way inside your body from there. This also includes the air we breathe. NASA has a document “NASA The Future of War” which is all about this type of tech and slide number 43 explains the air borne particles.

    NASA The Future of War - Slide 43If you examine the above NASA document you will see it all right there. The whole plan is in there. This is the future of warfare and we are their test subjects or “guinea pigs”, if you will…

    Melissa Melton and Arron Dykes made a video about this as well and I have embedded that video here for you to watch:



    This is literally right out of the Bible and the discussion on the Mark of the Beast. Remember the part of the Bible where John is on the Isle of Patmos and God told him not to write a certain part of the information given to him in a book for public consumption, but to “seal it up” instead to be revealed at “the time of the end”. This can be found in Daniel 12:4

    Daniel 12:4 King James Version (KJV)

    4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

    Well that is all I have for now but as you know I will present more information as I find it about what is happening around us and to us and who is doing it in future posts.

    Once again I want to urge you to seek out Jesus Christ with all your heart for only he can lead you to eternal salvation and he truly is the way the truth and the light… No man may enter into heaven except through him… John 14:6

    If I don’t see you again soon, then I hope to see you in the air my friends…

    Until then remember, The Truth Is Out There, Waiting To Be Found…

    Now go find some truth!

    Mind control als Vollendung des Faschismus’: der geheime Zugriff auf unsere Gehirne und unser Denken | Video

    von Michael Friedrich Vogt

    22. August 2015

    RA & EU-Advokat (Schweden) Henning Witte & Jo Conrad im Gespräch mit Michael Friedrich Vogt. Die Geschichte der Bewußtseinskontrolle, dem totalitären Zugriff totalitärer Systeme auf den Geist und das Bewußtsein der Menschen, ist uralt und hat seine Wiege im vermeintlich demokratischen Westen mit seiner „Wertegemeinschaft“.

    Selbst Wikipedia, die im Dienste eben dieser totalitärer Systeme und Apparate steht, räumt in diesem Zusammenhang zum Thema MKULTRA ein: „MKULTRA war ein umfangreiches geheimes Forschungsprogramm der CIA über Möglichkeiten der Bewußtseinskontrolle. Es lief von 1953 bis in die 1970er Jahre im Kontext des Kalten Kriegs. Ziel des Projekts war, ein perfektes Wahrheitsserum für die Verwendung im Verhör von Sowjetspionen zu entwickeln sowie die Möglichkeiten der Gedankenkontrolle zu erforschen. In Teilen überschnitten sich die Arbeiten auch mit den Forschungen anderer US-Programme zu biologischen Waffen. Das Programm umfaßte unter anderem Tausende von Menschenversuchen, bei denen ahnungslose Testpersonen, oft willkürlich unter Krankenhauspatienten und Gefängnisinsassen ausgewählt, ohne ihr Wissen unter hochpotente halluzinogene Drogen gesetzt wurden. Zahlreiche Versuchspersonen trugen bei den Experimenten schwerste körperliche und psychische Schäden davon, teilweise bis hin zum Tod. Ein großer Teil der Experimente des Projekts verstieß gegen US-amerikanische Gesetze.“

    Der kanadischer Psychiater Colin A. Ross ist einer der wichtigsten Experten, der die Welt über Mind Controlprogramme aufgeklärt hat. Im Verlauf seiner ärztlichen Tätigkeit behandelte er Patienten mit ähnlichen Krankheitsbildern, die über militärische und geheimdienstliche Experimente in Verbindung mit Mind Controlprogrammen in den USA, Kanada und Großbritannien berichteten. Dies bewog Ross zu weiteren Forschungen auf diesem Gebiet mittels über den Freedom of Information Act freigegebener Akten der CIA. Ross kam zu der Erkenntnis, daß die amerikanische CIA unmittelbar nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg damit begonnen hatte, umfangreiche Forschungsprogramme zur Bewußtseinskontrolle und zur Erforschung von Drogen sowie zum Entwickeln neuer Verhörmethoden zu starten. Dies geschah mit enormer finanzieller Unterstützung der US-Regierung.

    „Ross ist der Ansicht, daß es der CIA gelungen sei, einen so genannten „Manchurischen Kandidaten“ zu erschaffen und zum Einsatz zu bringen. Das wichtigste Element dabei sei die künstliche Erzeugung multipler Persönlichkeiten mittels extremer Folter, Medikamenten, Drogen und Hypnose. Bestimmte Dokumente, so Ross, gäben Hinweise darauf, daß die CIA schon Ende der fünfziger Jahre damit begonnen habe, Kinder in speziellen Programmen zu Spionen und Attentätern zu trainieren und zu programmieren. Eltern und Pflegeeltern von Adoptivkindern sollen mit involviert gewesen sein, denn nur so sei es möglich, einen Menschen dauerhaft zu kontrollieren. Oft seien die Eltern ebenfalls Geheimdienst- oder Militärangehörige gewesen. Auch hält es Ross für unwahrscheinlich, daß diese Programme, anders als behauptet, Anfang der 1970er Jahre eingestellt wurden, da sie keine brauchbaren Resultate erbrachten“, konsidiert Wikipedia.

    Das Gegenteil ist angesichts der CIA-Kreaturen al-Kaida und IS viel wahrscheinlicher. Und an die Stelle von Einzelversuchen sind inzwischen mittels Chemtrails und HAARP flächendeckende und nationsweite Programme der Gehirnwäsche und Bewußtseinskontrolle mittels massenhafter „Verdumpfung“ und Abstumpfung der Menschen getreten. Interessant dabei ist, daß Rußland unter Putin sich inzwischen von den menschenverachtenden Sprühaktionen verabschiedet hat und es über Rußland keine Chemtrails mehr gibt.

    Mind control ist also kein Programm der Vergangenheit, sondern geht angesichts des drohenden Niedergang des kapitalistischen Systems in die nächste Runde …
