I recently posted a list of news items that have appeared since The Portent launched — all of which factor into the plotline of that novel. But today its precursor, The Facade, deserves some attention.
Remember how HAARP factored into The Facade (weather modification)? Check this headline out:
Elite Think Tank Admits to Ongoing Climate Engineering Experiments
The launching point for the above point is the science published in the December 2014 issue of the prestigious Philosophical Transactions of Royal Society (A). Here’s the cover. It pretty much tells you all you need to know:
Here’s the table of contents.The science website phys.org also has a summary of some salient points of content.
Weather modification? As the essay I pointed you to initially notes, global elites have been discussing it for some time. In this regard, this excerpt again gives you a hint of the logic:
[The Royal Society’s] 2011 press release entitled “Who Decides?” is an overtly Orwellian exercise in problem-reaction-solution that, naturally, argues for a cabal of technocratic insiders to implement godlike power over the unwashed masses who are threatened both by their own ignorance as well as “rogue elements” that could hijack weather manipulation technology.
Mainstream outlet The Verge wound up echoing these supposed concerns in their 2013 article, “Weather wars: who should be allowed to engineer our climate?” which has the subtitle, “Geoengineering could be the silver bullet in fighting climate change — or the start of something even worse.”
China has been doing climate modification for a while, although with technologically unsophisticated stuff. Rumor has it that there are certain farmers that, when instructed by the gubment, load up artillery cannons with dry ice and blast it into the atmosphere to make it rain. The next day, which will be a national holiday or something, the sky will be clear and pleasant.
Angels Don’t Play This Dry-Ice Artillery Cannon Fired By Chinese Peasants?
I loved The Facade! Brilliant! Is there any chance of bringing The Portent to Google books? I usually listen to audio books, which is every book in Google books thanks to Google voice to text.
I drive most of the day, so it helps me get through books much more quickly when I can listen.
I have them both on Vyrso as well, so I’ll be able to read it either way, just not as quickly.
Great story, I love how you’ve weaved the truth into the fabric of well thought folds of fiction.
Aaron – I’ll have to ask. I listen to books as well, so I get it.
Isn’t it amazing how mankind…man….we always get just enough rope to hang ourselves?
I shudder sometimes at Rev. 11:18…about destroying those who destroy the earth…
