“Most pilots are trained to avoid these storm systems,” shouts Byron Pederson. “We’re trained to enter them.” He’s flying a King Air B200 prop jet above Maharashtra, India, toward a dense, bruise-colored monsoon cloud more than 20,000 feet from top to bottom. He dips a wing, Top Gun-style, as he circles the cumulonimbus. “Bank alert!” warns a computerized female voice from the control panel. Pederson calls her Bitchin’ Betty for all the scolding she does as he defies the generally accepted rules of aviation.
Four of us are crammed inside the tiny plane, and the air smells like stress and sweat. Pederson’s in the cockpit with Shahzad Mistry, the rookie co-pilot he’s training; I’m seated a few feet behind them, trying not to vomit on the fridge-size computer to my right that’s humming and blinking as it records meteorological data. To my left is Prakash Koliwad, chief executive officer of Kyathi Climate Modification Consultants, the cloud-seeding (geoengineering) company based in Bangalore that commissioned this flight.
The view outside my window goes smoky gray as Pederson maneuvers the King Air inside a dark layer of heavy moisture along the cloud’s underbelly. The plane lurches and shakes. “We’re in,” says Pederson. The Vertical Speed Indicator on the dashboard climbs. We’ve entered the “updraft,” a shaft of wind at the center of all storm clouds that’s sucking the plane upward at a rate of 800 feet per minute. I can barely lift my hands—the G-force is pinning them to my lap.
“Fire left,” instructs Pederson. Mistry flips a switch on the center console and deploys a flare on the left wing. “Fire right.” There are 24 cylinders resembling sticks of dynamite wired to racks on the plane’s wings, 12 on each. The flares are filled with combustible sodium chloride—pulverized table salt mixed with a flammable potassium powder. When the switch is flipped, the end of the flare shoots orange fire and trillions of superfine salt particles are released into the cloud. Water molecules are attracted to salt, so they bond to the particles and coalesce into raindrops.
It’s early September, still monsoon season in this southwestern region of India, yet the clouds haven’t done much more than drizzle. Maharashtra is one of the largest and wealthiest of India’s 30 states, with 110 million residents. It encompasses Mumbai and other large cities, plus vast swaths of farmland. Like other agricultural regions of India, it’s in its third consecutive year of drought. More than 80 percent of its farms depend on rain for irrigation, and agriculture production has dropped by almost a third since 2013. The human impact has been severe—1,300 debt-trapped farmers have committed suicide in Maharashtra in just the past six months.

Have you ever looked up and spotted a long contrail extending across the sky? Have you ever noticed that sometimes they disappear instantaneously or sometimes they spread out and create a cloud cover? Google the terms "Chemtrails" or "Geoengineering" and learn how many methods are used today to create or prevent certain weather patterns, with unknown consequence.
The document "Weather as a Force Multiplier - Owning the Weather by 2025" created for the United States Air Force by military officials outlines the use of weather for military applications:

CHANCE OF STORMS: NOAA forecasters estimate a 40% chance of geomagnetic storms on Dec. 9th, increasing to 55% on Dec. 10th in response to an incoming solar wind stream. High-latitude sky watchers should remain alert for colorful auroras after nightfall.
THE GEMINID METEOR SHOWER IS UNDERWAY: Canada's Meteor Orbit Radar (CMOR) is picking up echoes from the constellation Gemini. It's a sign that the annual Geminid meteor shower is underway. The bright pink "hot spot" in this CMOR sky map shows where Geminid meteoroids are hitting the atmosphere:

(December 5, 2015) Mainstream media sources are in so many cases completely omitting extremely dire news from the public and yet these same sources devote excessive coverage to absurd and irrelevent stories. A case in point is Northern California's "Record Searchlight" newspaper. The editor of this publication, Silas Lyons, completely blacked out any coverage whatsoever of the recent major anti climate engineering event in their hometown of Redding, California (even though CBS came all the way from Sacramento to cover the event). Though the Searchlight did find plenty of room in their newspaper to cover "Big Foot". The ongoing climate engineering programs are a real and present danger to the population. Media censorship of such critical information can only be considered criminal behavior. Once the geoengineering issue can no longer be hidden, and the population fully realizes that their media has been an accomplice to crimes which have irreparably harmed them, legal action should then commence against all guilty parties.
Blind denial is also epidemic in the ranks of the environmental communities. On Saturday, November 28th, I attended a Global Climate March in Chico, California that was put on by 350.org. The photos below are of the anti-geoengineering activists that attended the march.
An unfortunately high percentage of the 350.org marchers did not seem to want to know about the massive climate engineering elephant in the room that is mathematically the single greatest climate disrupting component (though of course there are many other factors). In the meantime, while so many choose to stay in their bubble comfort zones, the biosphere is collapsing, the global economy is disintegrating, and we are in free fall toward WWlll. We need everyone that is already awake to help in the effort to sound the alarm, each and every day. Once populations are forced to wake, a paradigm shift will follow. - DW

Planet Earth is under siege from countless factors. Unimaginable and irreparable damage has been done, there is no going back in any time frame that matters. We are now in a battle to preserve what is left of our planet's life support systems. The greatest single leap we can make in the right direction is to expose and halt climate engineering. The natural resources that industrialized/militarized society has relied on to sustain itself are waning at blinding speed. Rapidly escalating global conflict is directly connected to the increasing scarcity. Global economic, environmental, and societal collapse is already unfolding. No matter how ominous the horizon has become, the vast majority of the population are so far still bent on remaining in denial. All will be forced to face the truth soon, there is no place to hide from what is unfolding.
