California House members have sent a letter requesting $4.4 billion in federal wildfire relief. Steve Inskeep talks to Rep. Jeff Denham, one of the Republican lawmakers who signed the letter.


Tens of thousands of people have been displaced by wildfires in Southern California. And this comes after wildfires in Northern California earlier this year. Now, the entire California congressional delegation has co-signed a letter to the House Appropriations Committee saying they need more money for the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Representative Jeff Denham is a Republican member from California and joins us now in the studios. Welcome back, Congressman.

Published on Apr 9, 2015

The Loess Plateau Watershed Rehabilitation Project is an international illustration of a top-down multidisciplinary ecological engineering approach to address an anthropogenically derived geological issue of sediment erosion in China. Our team thoroughly evaluated the methodology and summarized several broad findings through this document and the supplementary MOOPy video. With limited financial resources, large spatial distribution and ever-pressing social pressures, this rehabilitation project remains a progressive example of an effective integrated method towards long-term sustainability.

Top Scientist Tells CBS: HAARP Responsible For Recent Hurricanes – What is Cloud Seeding?


World renowned physicist Dr. Michio Kaku made a shocking confession on live TV when he admitted that HAARP is responsible for the recent spate of hurricanes.

In an interview aired by CBS, Dr. Kaku admitted that recent ‘made-made’ hurricanes have been the result of a government weather modification program in which the skies were sprayed with nano particles and storms then “activated” through the use of “lasers”.

In the interview (below), Michio Kaku discusses the history of weather modification, before the CBS crew stop him in his tracks.

The High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) was created in the early 1990’s as part of an ionospheric research program jointly funded by the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Navy, the University of Alaska Fairbanks, and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).

According to government officials, HAARP allows the military to modify and weaponize the weather, by triggering earthquakes, floods, and hurricanes.

Anongroup.org reports: One detail in a plethora of academic papers and patents about altering the weather with electromagnetic energy and conductive particles in the stratosphere, research published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences said the “laser beams” can create plasma channels in air, causing ice to form. According to Professor Wolf Kasparian:

“Under the conditions of a typical storm cloud, in which ice and supercooled water coexist, no direct influence of the plasma channels on ice formation or precipitation processes could be detected.

Under conditions typical for thin cirrus ice clouds, however, the plasma channels induced a surprisingly strong effect of ice multiplication.

Within a few minutes, the laser action led to a strong enhancement of the total ice particle number density in the chamber by up to a factor of 100, even though only a 10−9 fraction of the chamber volume was exposed to the plasma channels.

The newly formed ice particles quickly reduced the water vapor pressure to ice saturation, thereby increasing the cloud optical thickness by up to three orders of magnitude.”

To really understand geoengineering, researchers have identified defense contractors Raytheon, BAE Systems, and corporations such as General Electric as being heavily involved with geoengineering. According to Peter A. Kirby, Massachusetts has historically been a center of geoengineering research.

With the anomalous hurricanes currently ravaging the Americas, floods destroying India, and wildfires destroying the Pacific Northwest, weather warfare is a topic on the public consciousness right now. Please share this with as many people as possible.

BU Trustees Approve Aggressive Climate Action Plan | BU Today | Boston University

The BU Climate Action Plan adopted by the BU Board of Trustees recommends new building efficiencies, changes to renewable energy sources, and ways to make climate change a bigger part of the University’s curriculum and research.

12.08.2017 By Meg Woolhouse

  • Plan reduces direct emissions to zero on BU’s campuses by 2040
  • Makes buildings more energy-efficient, resilient to flooding
  • Shifts away from fossil fuels to wind and solar sources


“All of our undergraduate students should be touched by this effort,” Carlberg said. “It’s going to take some work. But this is a great opportunity to develop courses and use the campus as a living laboratory.”

Launch of Climate Action Plan Task Force | Office of the President

Dear Members of the Boston University Community:

I am writing to announce the launch of the Climate Action Plan Task Force. As I outlined in my message to you last month, this group is charged with developing a Climate Action Plan for Boston University, which, when approved by the Board of Trustees, will become part of the University’s Strategic Plan.

The Task Force will be chaired by Anthony Janetos, Frederick S. Pardee Professor of Earth & Environment and Director of the Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future. The 18 members of our faculty, staff, and student body are listed at the end of this letter.

I have charged the Task Force with developing a Climate Action Plan in the context of the following five guidelines:

  1. Propose ways to operationally mitigate the University’s impact on global warming by decreasing our direct emissions and lowering our energy use, as well as ways we should prepare our campuses for the impacts of climate change.
  2. Make recommendations for our role in research—both disciplinary and interdisciplinary—that are relevant to lowering greenhouse gas emissions, lowering energy demand, and developing resilient cities and campuses.
  3. Make recommendations for educational programs that prepare all our students, but especially our undergraduates, to face the challenges of climate change as educated citizens of the world.
  4. Embed these recommendations in the context of analysis of their medium- and long-term financial implications to the University.
  5. Engage the entire Boston University community of faculty, staff, and students in the preparation of the Climate Action Plan and reach out to other institutions and the City of Boston to explore shared solutions that will benefit the broader community.

I hope that the Task Force is able to complete its work within a year.

The report of the Task Force will lay the foundation for the University’s strategy for dealing with climate change in teaching and research and through the design and operation of our campuses. I hope you will participate in the public discussions of this important work.

New Climate Study: Most Severe Warming Projections Are Now the Most Likely

Patrick Brown
Published on Dec 6, 2017

This is a video abstract for Brown and Caldeira (2017) published in Nature

By Tim Radford

Global warming, under the notorious “business-as-usual scenario” in which humans go on burning fossil fuels to power economic growth, could by 2100 be at least 15 percent warmer than the worst UN projections so far. And the spread of uncertainty in such gloomy forecasts has been narrowed as well.

Climate scientists had worked on the assumption that there was a 62 percent chance that the world would have warmed on average by more than 4°C if no action was taken to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

But a new study has not only raised the stakes, it has narrowed the uncertainty. There is now a 93 percent chance that global warming will—once again, under the business-as-usual scenario—exceed 4°C by 2100.

And since the world’s nations met in Paris in 2015 and agreed to keep overall global warming to “well below” 2°C, even that figure represents “dangerous” global warming. One degree higher would count as “catastrophic.” And a rise of beyond 5°C would deliver the world into an unknown and unpredictable period of change.

Two U.S. scientists reported in the journal Nature that they went back to the climate models used as the basis for forecasts made by the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and then matched the reasoning against observations.
