The biggest benefit through the use of what many call chemtrails is supposedly the ability to slow down climate change (1).
In his speech to the Council, Brennan claimed that the potential for geoengineering technologies to reverse climate change had captured his attention.
He was clearly enamored of geoengineering to correct the ever rising temperatures associated with what was formerly referred to as global warming.
Exclaiming that one such geoengineering technology held the possible solution, Brennan proceeded to discuss Stratospheric Aerosol Injection (SAI) and how it could help resolve the crisis.
SAI is a method of seeding the stratosphere with particles. He explained how these particles, once dispersed would reflect the sun to create heat. Brennan described it was being very similar to the way volcanic eruptions emit heat.
CIA Director Believes SAI Technology Solution to Climate Change
Brennan said that he believes the SAI technology could be used to limit the rise in global temperatures and thereby provide the world economy much needed additional time to make the transition from fossil fuels to alternative energy sources.
This belief that by discontinuing the use of fossil fuels climate change can be controlled reflects the controversial theory that climate change is man-made. This same premise places the blame of climate change on the sole use of fossil fuels.
The other side of the climate change argument, formerly called global warming, contradicts these claims. The scientists who disagree with the global warming theory aren’t so quick to resort to geoengineering.
In fact, this scientific camp believes that climate change isn’t caused by humans using fossil fuels. They contend that the changes in climate are simply a cyclical process that has been happening on planet Earth for millions and millions of years (2).
Brennan Promotes SAI as Inexpensive Solution
How much would the SAI program cost? Brennan told the National Research Council that “The process is also relatively inexpensive” at $10 billion annually.
With the deployment of an SAI program, Brennan warned there would also be several challenges that the US and the international community would need to address. For example, the technical challenge would be to maintain the reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
In addition, other climate change effects would still need to be addressed, including ocean acidification. This effect is attributed to around one-fourth of the carbon dioxide produced from fossil fuels being absorbed by the oceans (3).
In theory, SAI would become another weapon in the arsenal against climate change, not a silver bullet. Brennan explained, “SAI alone would not remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.”
Brennan warned that with the introduction of SAI technology there could be some negative geopolitical ramifications. These could prove pretty devastating to specific regions in the world. He explained, “The technology’s potential to alter weather patterns and benefit certain regions at the expense of others could trigger sharp opposition by some nations.”
Concerns are compounded with other disturbing possibilities. There is the risk that other regions “might seize on SAI’s benefits and back away from their commitment to carbon dioxide reductions.”
Perhaps the biggest potential negative to the use of SAI was summed up with Brennan’s final comment, “And, as with other breakthrough technologies, global norms and standards are lacking to guide the deployment and implementation of SAI.”
Despite these negatives, Brennan expressed his excitement of the technology, stating, “I could go on, and on, and on, but rather than talk about the things that I find fascinating, let me stop here…”
Geoengineering isn’t new. Seeding clouds to create rainfall in drought-plagued areas has been practiced for over half a century. SAI is just one of the latest forms being proposed (4).
