On Friday, October 7th, 2016, GeoengineeringWatch.org and the Legal Alliance to Stop Geoengineering (LASG) carried out a simple survey that involved 1518 climate scientists and experts. The survey message headline sent to the scientists/experts was titled “Legal Alliance to Stop Geoengineering Survey”. Below is the very simple and straight forward survey statement sent out to 1518 climate scientists/experts by GeoengineeringWatch and the LASG team.
The subject of climate engineering has become a frontline conversation in countless circles of academia and with governments around the globe. You may be aware of the rapidly building controversy over climate engineering/geoengineering and whether or not these programs have already been deployed.
The Legal Alliance To Stop Geoengineering (LASG) is conducting a survey in an attempt to bring clarification to this controversial issue. With this objective in mind, we would be grateful if you could give a simple yes or no answer to the following question:
Can you confirm for us that geoengineering programs HAVE NOT yet been deployed by the United States government? Such programs would include (but not be limited to) solar radiation management (SRM), stratospheric aerosol geoengineering (SAG), cloud albedo enhancement (CAE), or stratospheric aerosol injection (SAI).
We appreciate your consideration of the very important question posed in this survey. If we do not receive a response to the simple survey question we will assume (for the purposes of the survey) that as an expert/scientist on weather and climate you are not willing to state that climate engineering/geoengineering/solar radiation management programs have not yet been deployed by the US government.
Thank you for your consideration of this most important attempt to add clarification to the climate engineering/geoengineering controversy.
Of the 1518 academicians solicited, 970 of the scientists/experts did not open this survey/inquiry. Was thier reluctance due to the stated survey subject and their unwillingness to address the geoengineering issue publicly? Possibly because to do so would be at minimum a bad career decision? Or is the illegal federal “gag order” on all National Weather Service and all NOAA employees the bottom line with their silence? 34 of the scientists/experts immediately “unsubscribed” (possibly for the same reason that 970 did not even open the survey). Another 34 of the survey inquiries were not deliverable. But, 584 of the scientists/experts did open the climate engineering survey message. Of all 584, only one was initially willing to deny the climate engineering/geoengineering/solar radiation management reality on the record (he subsequently refused to confirm his initial answer, more on that below). So, the final summary is this, 100% of scientists/experts surveyed REFUSED to deny the climate engineering reality on the record. How much longer can the climate engineering atrocities be hidden from the public in plain sight? When will the so called “scientists and experts” show the courage to tell the truth to the population they claim to represent?
