Kindling & Actions:
News! Let me break in (to my own content!!!) to tell about a couple of recent successes (summer 2014) in getting the word out about the military programs which are contributing to the "severe weather" we're all coping with. We're all trying to cope with! Please use my letter as a template for your own response each time the media are talking about the climate change crisis. Make it your own, of course.
Thanks to the (newspaper/magazine name) and to (the writer) for his forward-thinking article (July 2014) regarding Vermont’s response to the sometimes disastrous effects of climate change.
Absent from all the studies, reports, discussions and solutions are the ongoing military programs which profoundly affect global weather patterns.
For those of us who thought we had defeated “Star Wars” in the 1980s it’s time to return to the concept of a weaponized atmosphere and catch up on what happened in our time away.
Weather can now be manipulated as a weapon (Owning the Weather 2025 document). Why is this not included in every discussion on climate change? Geoengineering techniques such as Solar Radiation Management are already employed overhead, globally and daily. Why is this not listed among our weather woes? And HAARP (the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program) proudly reshapes the ionosphere (to increase battlefield advantage), initiates earthquakes and steers hurricanes. Why aren’t we asking about HAARP when we talk about the severity of storms?
My guess is because these are all military programs and the military is sacrosanct, is placed outside all responsibility for planetary calamities.
For anyone who would like to further investigate my assertions, I offer the following short list of documents and patents. These are among the many which have helped shape my concerns.
1987 US Patent 4686605: Method and apparatus for altering a region in the earth’s atmosphere, ionosphere and/or magnetosphere. (This patent heralds the birth of HAARP.)
1977 US Patent 4842196: Method and apparatus for triggering a substantial change in earth characteristics and measuring earth changes.
1991 US Patent 5003186: Stratospheric Welsbach seeding for the reduction of global warming. (This is not the cloud-seeding of days gone by.)
1974 US Patent 3813875: Rocket having barium release system to create ion clouds in the upper atmosphere.
US Congress 2010 House hearings on Geoengineering, including Solar Radiation Management.
UK Parliament 2010 Hearings on Geoengineering, including Global Geoengineering Governance.
These represent only the tip of the (melting) iceberg. If your readers would like to learn more they may contact me at [your email address or you can send them to me email@example.com] (subject field: SKY).
I do agree wholeheartedly that we, as individuals and as communities, are responsible for our daily choices but these are of little consequence until public discussion reflects the choices being made for us by the military. Without this we can have no effective plan for recovery.
Thank you. [your name]
My second recent success was by phoning the Listener Comment Line of our regional National Public Radio station after I had heard an interview with scientists regarding the "severe weather" of climate change. My message was brief and may have been heard by a million listeners. Pretty exciting. I simply said I was grateful for the interview and am hoping that such interviews will begin to also address the military programs which are profoundly affecting the global weather patterns. The programs of concern are 1) weaponized weather; 2) geoengineering techniques such as Solar Radiation Management; and 3) HAARP - the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program which is proud of its capabilities to steer hurricanes, create earthquakes, and generally weaponize the atmosphere.
Please let me know about your efforts and successes. We can post them here. THANKS!
Hello. Bonnefire here. Since 2003, I have been working with the effects of so-called Lyme Disease, a global pandemic which is undermining the health of hundreds of thousands of people - and animals - worldwide.
Please read my Lyme article, below, and study the details of the US Patent for Pathogenic Mycoplasma, noting that it is an invention derived from HIV/AIDS patients under the auspice of the US Army. Mycoplasma is turning up in the blood tests of some"Lyme" victims. Other weaponized diseases such as Powassan virus can be present as well.
This complex disease can be a soup of bacteria, viruses and invention.
The website of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention does a disservice to all of us by misinforming those who might be hoping to learn accurate information about Lyme. Get your information at the LymeActionNetwork or ILADS sites. And, if you haven't already, be sure to watch the important documentary Under Our Skin which clearly outlines the relationship among the patenting interests, university laboratories, and the pharmaceutical and insurance industries.
If, after reading my article, you'd like to brainstorm with me about how to bring this information to your community please email me firstname.lastname@example.org subject line: Lyme.
Happy Trails (of the Roy Rogers variety!)
"...The invention relates to a novel pathogenic mycoplasma isolated from patients with Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) and its use in detecting antibodies in sera of AIDS patients, patients with AIDS-related complex (ARC) or patients dying of diseases and symptoms resembling AIDS diseases. The invention further relates to specific DNA sequences, antibodies against the pathogenic mycoplasma, and their use in detecting DNA or antigens of the pathogenic mycoplasma or other genetically and serologically closely related mycoplasmas in infected tissue of patients with AIDS or ARC or patients dying of symptoms resembling AIDS diseases. The invention still further relates to a variety of different forms of vaccine against mycoplasma infection in humans and/or animals..."

It was inevitable that our investigation of Persistent Jet Contrails, Solar Radiation Management and so-called Lyme Disease would lead us to entomological, bacteriological and biological warfare. In his 1964 book Tomorrow's Weapons Brig. Gen. J.H. Rothschild lists the future means of delivering "non-lethal weapons": aerosols, insects and fomites. Aerosols and insects, you say?
After dogs and cats and guinea pigs we are next in line as laboratory animals for the military experiments in non-lethal weapons - those which incapacitate without killing, outright. The "benefits" of non-lethal weapons are, first, the disabling of "enemy" populations and, second, that the remaining population cannot focus successfully on war while attending to its ailing population. We may ask, and just who is the Enemy?
The following is a partial list of books which are instructive in establishing the history of weaponized insects and bacteria and in recounting the experiments on unsuspecting human populations (certaily no informed consent, here). Add to aerosols and insects, the capabilities of HAARP to affect perception and clarity... and now Dr. Strangelove's laboratory is "as big as all outdoors"!

Without "kindling" we can't light a BONNEFIRE and signal the world that change is heading our way. Without "kindling" we can't send up our"smoke signals" to raise awareness of the current and proposed schemes. We - and our non-violent actions - are the "kindling" which keeps the fire bright, to burn away the suffocating haze and return to us all the warmth and nourishment of our Sun.
Suffice it to say…it is not just Persistent Jet Contrails anymore!
Since the inception of the Bonnefire Coalition, PJCs have morphed into SRM - Solar Radiation Management. The threat of geoengineering techniques is squarely upon us.
We must join together to say NO! to geoengineering techniques such as SRM.
If you’ve been itchin’ to take action… please read, digest and use the materials which follow here:

Okay, let’s get started!
Geoengineering Techniques & Solar Radiation Management
Since October 2008, the media have begun to discuss the possibility of geoengineering techniques which might have to be used to mitigate the ill-effects of global warming/climate change.
While the term “geoengineering” is still being refined, the Council on Foreign Relations defines it as “Any of a variety of strategies, such as injecting light-reflecting particles into the stratosphere, that might be used to modify the Earth’s atmosphere-ocean system in an attempt to slow or reverse global warming.” (from the CFR Unilateral Geoengineering workshop May 5, 2008).
Here, at the outset, I submit that my first remedy to the sickened condition of Earth is simply for our species to wake up from our coma! We are trained and educated away from common sense and personal responsibility. And we are starved for the kind of nourishment which simplicity and generosity might provide. For now, simplicity is gobbled up by excess. Our sense of entitlement shapes our solutions. Without addressing the root causes of our condition how can we hope to discover real remedies? The Bonnefire Coalition imagines a world in which we share Earth’s bounty with all Beings. It’s only common decency. It’s only common sense.
THE BONNEFIRE COALITION was initiated to stop the pluming jet trails, what NASA calls Persistent Jet Contrails. PJCs are those trails - often appearing in grids, Xs and parallel lines - which are witnessed and recorded daily and globally. As PJCs expand they combine to veil the sky and dim the sun. NASA agrees with the Bonnefire Coalition that PJCs are contributing to global warming and reducing direct sunlight. While we have been busy trying to stop the effects of PJCs, another geoengineering acronym has sprouted in the laboratories of the global scientific community: SRM, which is the focus of this article.
SRM - Solar Radiation Management is one of the most disturbingly inventive of the geoengineering techniques currently being discussed. By definition, “SRM and related strategies seek to directly intervene in the climate system, without directly affecting atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations.” (from Ken Caldeira’s testimony - Geoengineering: Assessing the Implications of Large-Scale Climate Intervention, before the House Committee on Science and Technology, November 5, 2009). By another definition “SRM aims to offset the warming caused by the buildup of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere by reducing the amount of solar energy absorbed by the Earth.” (from Lee Lane’s testimony - Researching Solar Radiation Management as a Climate Policy Option before the House Committee on Science and Technology, November 5, 2009).
On November 5, 2009 the U.S. government went public with its SRM geoengineering schemes, as the House of Representatives conducted Hearings before the House Committee on Science and Technology (http://science.house.gov/Publications/hearings_markups_details.aspx?News...). The testimonies describe possible future geoengineering techniques to abate global warming. This excursion into a public forum gives us a most rare opportunity to ask our legislators to speak on our behalf, to say firmly to the geoengineers, “No! You may not!”
The congressional hearings discuss several methods for implementing Solar Radiation Management. The one of particular concern to us is administered by military jets, high in the stratosphere, laying down particles of Sulfur Dioxide (Council on Foreign Relations Unilateral Geoengineering May 5, 2008 workshop) which effectively haze the sky and dim the sun. Our research indicates that Sulfur Dioxide is not the only particulate being considered.
“Other candidates include hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and soot.” (Crutzen, 2006) (from Lee Lane’s November 5, 2009 testimony). “A fairly broad range of materials might be used as stratospheric scatterers” (Caldeira and Wood 2008) (from Lee Lane’s November 5, 2009 testimony). “Potential types of particles for injection include sulfur dioxide, aluminum oxide dust or even designer self-levitating aerosols…” (CFR Unilateral Geoengineering May 5, 2008 workshop).
“Cloud Cover Modification,” is another Solar Radiation Management (SRM) technique which uses particulates to reflect sunlight back into space, away from the Earth. For this method of modifying marine stratocumulus clouds “the level of Sulfur Dioxide emissions required to counteract the effects of double CO2 concentrations was estimated at 31,000 tons per day, an amount equivalent at the time to the SO2 [Sulfur Dioxide] emissions from a coal-fired plant for an entire year.” (CFR Unilateral Geoengineering May 5, 2008 workshop). How is this use of SO2 even being considered when we have been working to reduce the effects of SO2 emissions? Out of fairness to the Council on Foreign Relations, they do acknowledge that this method “would have massive environmental impacts in the form of acid rain.” If so, why are we even discussing its use?
In his November 5th testimony, while assessing risks of various geoengineering techniques, Professor Alan Robock, of Rutgers University, states that “with brightening of marine clouds there is…a possible large impact on the oceanic food chain due to less solar energy needed for plankton at the base of the food chain to grow.” Less solar energy [which is] needed for the plankton at the base of the food chain? If common sense prevailed, this SRM technique would be dismissed without consideration.
Further, if “brightened clouds” over the oceans will steal sunlight from fundamental life processes, what losses are incurred when the Aerosol Program hazes the sky? In a critical breach of common sense some of our scientists seem to have forgotten that we need the sun.
We need direct sunlight for fundamental life processes such as photosynthesis! Yes, there are creatures who flourish in darkness and without oxygen, but we are not those creatures, nor are countless other sentient beings who share this planet with us. It is astounding, really, that so simple and significant a concept seems to have completely escaped some of the scientific community.
Before continuing with other risks of the proposed Aerosol Program, I want to interject another sun-related solution which was discussed by the Council of Foreign Relations in its May 5, 2008 Unilateral Geoengineering workshop:
“Land Cover Modification - A few large continental nations might be able to produce significant changes in planetary albedo [Earth’s ability to reflect incoming light] through massive modifications in land cover. This would entail replacing dark forest cover with much lighter and more reflective cover such as grass lands or steppe.” “Replacing” is a euphemism for deforestation. Deforestation? At a time when the planet is said to be suffocating from Carbon Dioxide? Didn’t we learn as kids that forests are our friends because they breathe in our carbon dioxide and give back to us our oxygen?
Where, in all of this, are the Environmental Impact Statements? Where is the public awareness? Why are we not included in the decision-making process? Where are our legislators who will defend for us the most fundamental life processes which are at stake with these Dr. Strangelove “solutions”?
Returning, for a moment, to Professor Alan Robock’s November 5, 2009 testimony before the House Committee on Science and Technology, and focusing on Solar Radiation Management technology, he lists seventeen risks:
1) SRM could produce drought in Asia and Africa, threatening the food and water supply for billions of people. [Practical racism aside, the Earth’s atmosphere is a closed system. What goes around, comes around. BH]
2) It will not halt continued ocean acidification from CO2.
3) It would deplete ozone.
4) It would increase dangerous ultraviolet radiation.
5) With SRM the reduction of direct solar radiation and the increase in diffuse radiation would make the sky less blue and produce much less solar power from systems using focused sunlight. [And would profoundly affect fundamental life processes. BH]
6) Any system to inject particles or their precursors into the stratosphere at the needed rate would have large local environmental impacts.
7) If discontinued there would be much more rapid warming, much more rapid than would occur without geoengineering.
8) If a series of volcanic eruptions produced unwanted cooling, geoengineering could not be stopped rapidly to compensate.
9) Geoengineering would put permanent pollution above astronomers’ telescopes.
10) There will be unexpected consequences.
11) There will be human error with sophisticated technical systems.
12) Geoengineering would lessen the public will to address climate change with mitigation.
13) Do humans have the right to control the climate of the entire planet to benefit them, without consideration of all other species?
14) Potential military use of geoengineering technology raises ethical concerns.
15) What if some benefit from geoengineering technology while others are harmed?
16) Who would control geoengineering systems?
17) The costs of implementing geoengineering would be less than the costs associated with the potential damages of geoengineering.
It is important to add two more problems to Professor Robock’s list:
18) SRM will affect physical and mental health. The Dimming of the Sun and increasing manmade cloud cover are already associated with a rise in Ricketts and other vitamin-D-deficiency diseases, as well as depression and asthma.
19) SRM will affect life processes vital to agriculture, forestry and natural resources/systems.
