The impediment to action advances action. What stands in the way becomes the way.
What something is called is infinitely more important than what it is.
My name is Jason Thompson and I’m a clean energy journalist/inventor/promoter/historian/science enthusiast who once got fired for only wanting to write green articles. Although I wanted more and stricter environmental policies I thought it was weird that so much momentum was pushing the idea that CO2 was certainly the main driver of the climate while so many factors and unknowns abound. I got a feel for this back in 2001 when I took Dynamic Earth and Minnesota Rocks and Waters in undergraduate school at Winona State University. My main area of study was colonialism and US-Mongolian Foreign Relations.
I noticed many of the former colonial powers and interests were behind climate alarmism. I felt something was funny regarding the science of climate change and did more research at UNLV. This was after I was asked to leave my job because I was writing too many green articles and ones that were critical of the car companies.
I’ve taken a few undergraduate and one graduate course which covered climate change. I also learned about climate change while I was student assistant for Dr. Oliver Hemmers who was the director of the Harry Reid Center for Environmental Studies at UNLV. That was until he came out with talks critical of climate change models and was not re-hired.
Climate change science is not at a point where we should use it to change energy policy drastically. This is what Roger Revelle one of the fathers of climate change concluded towards the end of his life. Climate models are not very good because they don’t model convection, aerosols, the oceans, or clouds with accuracy according to the New York Times in 1991. Finding the signal in the noise is impossible ask Nate Silver.
The below video goes more in depth regarding the history of climate change. Even if global warming wasn’t developed by the CIA to control India (and it was admittedly see screenshot of Price’s work below) just as they project it it would not be ethical to block development of impoverished. Climate models were developed by the military. Once used to define and modify battle conditions now the models are used to make war against a new enemy, the climate itself.
Andrew Ross mentions this last challenge, “No one needs to doubt the urgency of the greenhouse problem to recognize that any Western suggestion of standards for the development of other countries is also a reinforcement of the long history of colonial underdevelopment of the non -European world” (Ross, 1991, p. 213
The Surveillance Imperative
Geosciences during the Cold War and Beyond
Authors: Turchetti, S., Roberts, P.
“Surveillance is a key notion for understanding power and control in the modern world, but it has been curiously neglected by historians of science and technology. Using the overarching concept of the “surveillance imperative,” this collection of essays offers a new window on the evolution of the environmental sciences during and after the Cold War.”
THE BIRTH OF CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE
Arthur B. Darling1There was more than economy in mind as Director of the Budget Harold Smith corresponded with General Wm. J. Donovan in August 1945 about liquidating the Office of Strategic Services. On the same day Smith advised the General that agencies with no peacetime activities had to go, Donovan expounded once more in a letter to him the principles which should govern a centralized U.S. foreign intelligence system. Donovan believed those principles were already at work in the OSS. But since it was to be abandoned, another agency should be set up immediately to take over its valuable assets and aid the nation in “the organization and maintenance of the peace.”
The newly unveiled atomic bomb naturally dominated the thinking of the time, and some argued that it made the need for a permanent system of national intelligence peremptory. Gregory Bateson, for example, writing to Donovan from OSS headquarters in the India-Burma theater, forecast that the bomb would shift the balance of warlike and peaceful methods of international pressure. It would be powerless, he said, against subversive practices, guerrilla tactics, social and economic manipulation, diplomatic forces, and propaganda either black or white. The nations would therefore resort to those indirect methods of warfare. The importance of the kind of work the Foreign Economic Administration, the Office of War Information, and the Office of Strategic Services had been doing would thus be infinitely greater than it had ever been. The country could not rely upon the Army and Navy alone for defense. There should be a third agency to combine the functions and employ the weapons of clandestine operations, economic controls, and psychological pressures in the new warfare. But Bateson thought, and he would not be alone, that this third agency should be under the Department of State.

Is it important a former OSS agent wrote a paper on how to keep colonial order in India after ww2 and then inspired a psychedelic environmental movement that effectively controls India’s development a few decades later?
The above links describe it.
Allen Ginsberg made Circuit Earth on 1st Earth Day along with Erlich. The movie was inspired by Bateson or so it said at beginning. It warned of ice age caused by humans. Bateson gave LSD to Ginsberg and programmed him at Stanford in 1959. I wonder what was said I contacted Stanford records that has Ginsberg papers. LSD was then distributed to population via universities. Along with the fragile earth program. Mead was Bateson’s wife and wrote book about climate change with NIH. Atmosphere Endangered Endangering
The movie Circuit Earth is a lynchpin connecting Greg Bateson with new environmental movement. Or a coincidence…
Bateson specialized in black propaganda. This means making fake messages that look like they came from official enemy position. The exaggerated messages are designed to disrupt enemy. We are the enemy.
Also interesting coincidence that black propaganda developed or at least used by Bateson in Burma was used by climate change activists The Yes Men.http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/10/19/AR2009101901651.html
Presentation and Discussion on the Science of Climate Change Oliver Hemmers, Ph.D., Vice President of Operations, Infinity Capital Management
Jason Thompson added a public comment regarding carbon colonialism and the creation of the CIA.
Back in the campaign, Duterte said the country’s economy might still need new coal-fired power plants.
He also called the developed nations “hypocritical” for asking developing nations like the Philippines to slash carbon emissions.
Addressing the nation, Duterte softens position on reducing greenhouse gas emissions, but insists industrialization comes first
I wonder what made him change his mind?
Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has stated he will not abide by the Paris Agreement, an international climate change pact, calling the deal “stupid” and “absurd,” and accusing developed countries of “imposing” on less wealthy states after having committed their own share of environmental atrocities.
Jason Thompson received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Law & Society from Winona State University where he studied U.S.-Mongolian Foreign Relations 1860-1920. He also attended programs at Hennepin Technical College in Minnesota, Soonchunhyang University in the Republic of Korea and at the University for Peace in Costa Rica. He has a Master of Arts degree from University of Nevada, Las Vegas where he focused on climate control and high-energy x-ray applications. Jason has wrote for Diesel Power and The Costa Rica News.
