CIA Director Discusses Geoengineering at CFR Event


By Brandon Turbeville

In late June 2016, CIA director John O. Brennan appeared at the Council on Foreign Relations to give a brief talk and take questions from members of the council.

The discussion was designed to address threats to national and global security as well as world stability. Among the threats that Brennan discusses are of course the usual suspects like ISIS and biological warfare, but interestingly enough, Brennan focused heavily on the rapid change and development of technology.

First mentioning the potential for cyber attacks, hacking, and other types of disruptions to the governmental, military and civilian infrastructure of the world, Brennan also mentioned the “problem” of an aging population due to increased longevity as well as the potential for the creation of genetically engineered bacteria to be used for biological warfare purposes. But what has raised many eyebrows is Brennan’s discussion of geoengineering.

While Brennan did not state that geoengineering was currently being conducted, he did go into some discussion about the possibility of geoengineering in the near future.

Brennan stated,

Another example is the array of technologies—often referred to collectively as geoengineering—that potentially could help reverse the warming effects of global climate change. One that has gained my personal attention is stratospheric aerosol injection, or SAI, a method of seeding the stratosphere with particles that can help reflect the sun’s heat, in much the same way that volcanic eruptions do.

An SAI program could limit global temperature increases, reducing some risks associated with higher temperatures and providing the world economy additional time to transition from fossil fuels. The process is also relatively inexpensive—the National Research Council estimates that a fully deployed SAI program would cost about $10 billion yearly.

As promising as it may be, moving forward on SAI would raise a number of challenges for our government and for the international community. On the technical side, greenhouse gas emission reductions would still have to accompany SAI to address other climate change effects, such as ocean acidification, because SAI alone would not remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.

On the geopolitical side, the technology’s potential to alter weather patterns and benefit certain regions at the expense of others could trigger sharp opposition by some nations. Others might seize on SAI’s benefits and back away from their commitment to carbon dioxide reductions. And, as with other breakthrough technologies, global norms and standards are lacking to guide the deployment and implementation of SAI.

While we must be clear that Brennan did not state that geoengineering was currently taking place or that he made mention of chemtrails, it is important to note that he essentially described the process of chemtrailing and geoengineering in a speech that was designed to discuss possible threats to global security in the near future.

His speech was given to the Council on Foreign Relations, no less, one cell in a worldwide network of “think tanks” who are responsible for developing and implementing much of the Anglo-American agenda through national policy. While many may consider geoengineering to be nothing more than a conspiracy theory, Brennan’s speech should cause them to rethink their perspective.

    Ridiculous article, chemtrailing the atmosphere with toxins has been an ongoing covert operation for awhile now, accelerating in recent years.
    Look up, we are being sprayed

    THE main point is ‘why is the CIA director at the Council On Foreign Relation there to begin with?” Why does our CIA talk to external organizations that do not have America’s best interests. America’s ‘best interests’ of the people are described as doing what is best for the individual, rather than the corporate state or the ‘state of corporations’.

    And THAT IS WHY…the article said THIS:
    “While many may consider geoengineering to be nothing more than a conspiracy theory, Brennan’s speech should cause them to rethink their perspective.” The last sentence. Did you read the whole article?
    Mr. Turbeville is not disagreeing with you! He’s telling everyone, that everyone should understand a little more, that chemtrailing is indeed, a fact!
    Yes, we know they’ve been spraying for years! Brennan’s speech has a hint in it, of “geoengineering”…spraying chemtrails! And that is almost GREAT! Now if we can get a big government person to just go ahead and SAY IT as FACT!
    I think it’s weird, that the CIA is talking to the CFR….dang government’s alphabet soup!

    “Why does our CIA talk to external organizations that do not have America’s best interests”?? And you think the CIA has our best interests?? Read much news online, or for that matter, government history, much??
    Can I show you tons of articles I have, that show how deep the CIA (as for that matter, the FBI, and all these alphabet soup government offices) is into lying, deception, etc….and all that crap?? But, yeah, the alphabet soup of the CIA, talking to the CFR, kinda raised my eyebrows, too! (As I commented above)
    It’s common sense to know that “they” (many of our government officials) do NOT look out for the citizens, but for their own agenda, or the “state of corporations” as you said.

    We have a LOT bigger problems in the USA than “geoengineering” that’s not even real. If anything, the director’s comments indicate that there are no “chemtrails.”
