NATO’s Unexpected Role in Shaping Air Quality Policies 

 Key Points: 

  • NATO’s Influence on U.S. and Global Pollution Policy
  • Environmental Protection as a Racket
  • Evolution into Solar Radiation Modification (SRM)
  • EPA’s Historical Failures

IT ALL STARTS HERE…

NATO is a military force closely aligned with the United Nations (UN). 

Is NATO with US or Against US?

Related: Environmental Protection within NATO

This foreign military is not an elected organization or in any way qualified to lead environmental protection efforts or establish public safety policies. The idea that this agency may have played a key role in influencing the creation of worldwide air quality policy and standards warrants wider public scrutiny.

According to the book AIR POLLUTION MODELING AND ITS APPLICATION XV, in 1969 NATO (the North Atlantic Treaty Organization) established the Committee on Challenges of Modern Society (CCMS) and developed a framework to study pollution modeling and its applications. This 2004 book is a compilation of scientific and technical reports from the 25th year of international conferences held during 2001.

MODELING DEFINED… 

Modeling may involve the use of computer simulations and may also involve “in-situ” observations of experimentation using actual pollutants.

“In-situ” refers to measurements or observations taken directly at the location where a phenomenon is occurring: Ultrafine aerosol particles in aircraft plumes In situ observations

Both approaches, in-situ observation and modeling, complement each other. Observations provide real-world data for validation and refinement of models.

The book, AIR POLLUTION MODELING AND ITS APPLICATION XV, covers topics such as: Regional Air Pollution and Climate; Global and Long-Range Transport; Integrated Regional Modelling; Role of Atmospheric Models in Air Pollution Policy and Abatement Strategies; New Developments; and Model Assessment and Verification are documented in the book. *Note the spelling difference between UK “modelling” and US “modeling” terms.

Obviously a lot of time, money, and coordination went into these decades-long studies, but why? Why was NATO, a foreign military, leading this effort?

Countries worldwide followed NATO’s lead and replicated similar modeling protocols and air quality standards were adopted.  In the United States the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) became the leading agency charged with developing and enforcing pollution standards. All 50 States adopted air dispersion or modeling protocols. Scroll down to find your state’s modeling protocols at the end of this article.

EPA WROTE THE RULES?

The assumption that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is actively working to eliminate pollution is not accurate. In the US we take air quality standards for granted without considering the foreign military, NATO, which helped create and develop the standards. 

These protocols involve the use of models and averages to determine “acceptable” levels of exposure to various pollutants. Given that there is a distinct difference between engineering statistical models and real world impacts on biological life, pollution dispersion protocols are inadequate in protecting and honoring the sanctity of life. 

If the goal was genuinely to protect life and the environment, then protocols would be implemented to effectively prohibit the release of pollution, not to allow further releases.

IT’S ACTUALLY A RACKET

Since the U.S. government is a corporation, the EPA functions within the business plan to keep the wheels of commerce rolling.

The EPA was established in 1970 under Richard Nixon’s notoriously corrupt administration. Henry Kissinger, Nixon’s National Security advisor and Secretary of State was linked to the Rockefeller-created UN, the KGB (Soviet intelligence) and promoted policies of worldwide depopulation, known also as activities to accelerate fertility decline.

Infiltration by Soviet agents such as Kissinger into positions of influence and power in American government is an important fact to better understanding recent history and current events. For more information on this see the 2003 article by Charlotte Iserbyt, United States Russian Merger: A Done Deal?

The intention to “comfortably” merge the Soviet Union with the United States was the goal of the UN and major Tax-Exempt Foundations.

US-Russian Merger

 

Notably, the Nixon administration, under Kissinger’s direction, was involved in advancing international weather modification efforts:

SOVIET AND U.S. PLAN EMERGES

In 1975, DARPA published a report called, “Soviet Developments in Weather Modification, Climate Modification, and Climatology.” The report describes applications of weather and climate modification as well as methods of moderating hypothetical warming trends by increasing the concentration of sulfate aerosol in the lower stratosphere.

Currently, this Soviet sulfate aerosol injection strategy is called Stratospheric Aerosol Injection (SAI), and is being funded by the US Congress, in partnership with federal agencies, the UN World Meteorological Organization (WMO), private partners, and academia relative to Solar Radiation Modification (SRM).

Congressionally Mandated Research Plan and an Initial Research Governance Framework Related to Solar Radiation Modification

Weather and climate modification is now being promoted as Solar Radiation Modification (SRM), Stratospheric Aerosol Injection (SAI), Marine Cloud Brightening (MCB), and other terms, as research, or more accurately, experimentation. Presenting Solar Radiation Modification (SRM) as legitimate “research,” when the potential adverse consequences of this dual purposed military weaponry have been known for decades, is how these activities have been able to proceed without being challenged.

The EU is also proposing a similar global governance framework for SRM research.

European Commission Report on Geoengineering Governance

Horizon Europe Report: SRM Governance of Research

Pakistan is also discussing a global governance framework for SRM research.

Pakistan Policy Brief: Governance of Solar Radiation Modification

The Vatican has been discussing global governance framework for SRM research for years.

C2G2: Vatican Seminar on the Governance of Geoengineering

More Information:  SRM Governance 

Notably missing from these discussions and proposals for global SRM governance is public consent. Legitimate governance requires the consent of the governed.

 

EPA HISTORY OF FAILURE TO PROTECT

A prime example of EPA failure to protect public health from harmful pollution may be found in the 1978 report: Efforts by the Environmental Protection Agency To Protect the Public from Environmental Nonionizing Radiation Exposures. According to the 15-page report, symptoms attributed to low-level exposure to radiation include, “headache, weariness, dizziness, irritability, emotional instability, partial loss of memory, loss of appetite, cardiovascular effects, electroencephalogram changes, blood chemistry changes, changes in respiration, and possible genetic effects.”

No action was taken based on the report. Why?

ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS

It’s worth reiterating: The assumption that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is actively working to eliminate pollution is not accurate.

Since the 1970’s, awareness of pollution, driven by professional marketing campaigns, has become a modern economic phenomenon.

Billions and billions of dollars are now hinged on investment schemes such as carbon credits, ESG bond ratings, and the latest, NAC’s (Natural Asset Companies). Anything that is linked to the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) or the Security and Exchange Commission (SEC), and claims to be helping anyone besides investors is suspect. For such entities, the primary goal is profit.

Consider UN “climate action” plans implemented in your state or nation based on the carbon dioxide (CO2) hypothesis that was proposed in the 1975 DARPA-Soviet report mentioned above.

Between 1975 and now, sophisticated marketing campaigns have driven consumers and entire nations toward “virtuous cycles of investment.”

UN AGENDA 21 SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS

In 1992 Untied Nations (UN) codified virtuous investment branded as Sustainable Development or Agenda 21, which has since evolved into more precise planning for Agenda 2030 and Agenda 2050. This was made possible by the UN in concert with The World Bank and a host of financial giants.

Under UN Agenda 21, international observation and “research” programs in global atmospheric chemistry were adopted by participating nations via the World Meteorological Organization (WMO),which is also part of the UN.

The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) is a primary driver of atmospheric experimentation and weather modification. The WMO Global Atmosphere Watch (GAW) Implementation Plan 2016-2023, states:

“GAW also supports the enhancement of aviation meteorological services through research of atmospheric aerosol dispersion.” 

Outside and beyond the context of legitimate governance, weather modification programs have been operating without safety regulations, public oversight, or public consent, since the 1950’s.

At the 2017 GLOBAL WEATHER ENTERPRISE SEMINAR it was no secret that the public might have better ideas regarding pollution abatement: 

“There is a huge risk in not acting globally now, because local solutions will be developed and
possibly interfere with broader ones” -p.8

The U.S. Federal Weather Enterprise was linked to the above mentioned Global Weather Enterprise.

STRATEGIC PLAN FOR FEDERAL WEATHER ENTERPRISE

Link to 2018-2022 Strategic Plan For Federal Weather Enterprise Coordination

“4.1 Exercise leadership in coordinating U.S. efforts in international weather research priorities including the current World Meteorological Organization Grand Challenges.” -Quote from Federal Weather Enterprise Budget and Coordination Reports in 2019, 2020, and p.3 of the 2021 Federal Weather Enterprise (FWE).

The funding of more than 30 U.S. agencies is outlined on page 30 of the 2021 Federal Weather Enterprise. NOAA, DOC, EPA, FAA, DOE, DOD, NASA, and others are listed as participants in a system of meteorology for climate control within an international NGO (non-government agency) called the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), which is also part of the UN.

Notably, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is consistently listed as a top funded agency in partnership with the Department of Commerce (DOC).

 

CIA INTEREST IN METEOROLOGY FOR CLIMATE CONTROL: 1960

“Technological developments of the past two decades have provided the understanding, the techniques, and the means necessary for an assault on the problems of climate control. Control of any kind requires capabilities in all these areas. Meteorology is just now beginning to acquire such capabilities.”   November 22, 1960,  p.5 of 17

 

In 1961 JFK delivered a speech to the United Nations promoting globalism, cooperation in global weather control, satellite communications to link the whole world, and international disarmament, whereby the UN would become the world’s military police force.

Who is the UN’s military partner?  NATO.  

This is problematic for numerous reasons including the fact that Russia is on the UN security council and China is a leading funder of the UN, with both being members of the UN’s World Meteorological Organization along with the U.S.. This may explain why Chinese weather balloons have been allowed to travel freely over the United States.

The Amazing Deception

 

The five permanent members of the UN Security Council are: ChinaFranceRussian Federationthe United Kingdom, and the United States.

“We shall propose further cooperative efforts between all nations in weather prediction and eventually in weather control.”  President John F. Kennedy,  25 September 1961   Link To Full Speech Quote @ 22:02

In 1962 Lyndon Johnson described the development of a weather satellite to permit man to determine the world’s cloud layer and ultimately to control the weather. Johnson stated: “he who controls the weather will control the world.”

NATO 2030

An important revelation written in the Foreign Policy Institute/Henry A. Kissinger Center for Global Affairs,
Johns Hopkins University SAIS 2021 white paper, NATO 2030 states: 

“Notably, it is no longer a given that the United States will play a significant leadership role in the Alliance.”   Intro p. 13

Link To NATO 2030 Towards a New Strategic Concept and Beyond HERE

Is the U.S. Military Operating Under NATO Command?

 

Additionally, NATO collaborates with the International Civil Aviation Organization.

This international group is partnered with the UN as well as the UN’s global weather apparatus, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), and plays a central role in facilitating global air traffic.

Published in separate English, French, Russian and Spanish editions by the INTERNATIONAL CIVIL AVIATION ORGANIZATION 999 University Street, Montréal, Quebec, Canada H3C 5H7         International Civil Aviation Organization 2011 330

 

MERGING OF CIVIL AND MILITARY AVIATION

“There is now a clearly defined need to establish procedures that support the efficient integration of military and civil aviation in day-to-day operations.”  Chapter 6  p. 22

With reference to the list of acronyms on page (x) of this 2011 document, note the multiple mentions of remotely piloted aircraft systems, unmanned aircraft, and satellite systems.

“Historically, offshore airspace is regarded as optimal for conducting hazardous air activity due to its natural separation from both people and property and from other air activity. As a result, much of the offshore airspace around the U.S. has been designated as SUA (Special use airspace).” – p.28

 

EXACTLY WHOSE MILITARY?

As stated in the NATO 2030 document, there has been a diminishing U.S. leadership role in NATO.

This is consistent with the overarching establishment of UN global governance plans that have been in the works for at least a century.

The UN-linked International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) merger of global civil and military aviation operations has undermined legitimate USA Constitutional authority as well as national jurisdictions and sovereignty.

Remember, there is a difference between civil aviation operations such as flying to a destination and military operations involving warfare-related activities. 

The global merging of military and civil aviation operations prevents essential public oversight of potentially catastrophic and hazardous atmospheric experimentation.

In the USA, the FAA, along with the EPA, as revealed in the source documents above, are not able to function in the best interests of the people because of the merging with a foreign military.

Air quality standards adopted by the EPA, spawned by NATO aka UN-linked military, allow regulatory cover for continual atmospheric dispersion modelling.

In conclusion, what’s being marketed as “climate change” is the result of over 70 years of weather and climate modification undertaken without public consent. It is now called Solar Radiation Modification (SRM).

========

IT ALL ENDS HERE…

Legitimate Constitutional regulatory mechanisms to prohibit and penalize atmospheric experimentation involving the intentional release of polluting emissions is necessary to protect human health and our environment. 

Nations and States must step up to defend the rule of law.

Kentucky SB217 states: “Pursuant to the Tenth Amendment of the Constitution of the United States and the inherent right for Kentucky citizens to engage in thoughtful deliberation and determine public policy by voting, the citizens of the Commonwealth do not consent to any unconstitutional actions or efforts made by the federal government or international bodies that intentionally release polluting emissions into the Commonwealth’s atmosphere, through geoengineering, cloud seeding, weather modification, or any other means;”

Illinois Weather Modification Act Introduced

Tennessee HB2063 and SB2691 Introduced

Clean Air Bill Introduced in Connecticut

SUMMARY:

Economic Interests Driving Pollution Policy:

    • Pollution policy, driven by marketing campaigns, has become an economic phenomenon tied to investment schemes such as carbon credits and NACs.
    • Entities linked to financial markets prioritize profit, potentially overshadowing genuine efforts to combat pollution.

 

UN’s Role in Harmonizing Atmospheric Experimentation:

    • UN-NATO led initiatives prioritizing Agenda 21/2030 sustainable development goals (SDGs) have guided sovereign nations toward global atmospheric experimentation without public consent or legitimate governance.
    • Weather modification and climate control programs, now termed SRM, lack public consent and oversight.

 

Merging Civil and Military Aviation:

    • The merging of civil and military aviation, facilitated by organizations like NATO and the ICAO, excludes public oversight of hazardous atmospheric experimentation.
    • The diminishing U.S. leadership role in NATO aligns with broader UN global governance plans.

 

Call for Constitutional Regulation:

    • Constitutional regulatory mechanisms are crucial to prohibit and penalize atmospheric experimentation releasing pollutants intentionally.
    • Nations and states are urged to defend the rule of law, exemplified by Kentucky SB217, asserting citizens’ right to reject and prohibit unconstitutional actions related to atmospheric experimentation.
