City Hall & Positive Action on GHGs

On Tuesday city councillors will hear from city staff on the findings of a study of how much greenhouse gas is being produced by our city.

There's good news and bad news but the hopeful news is that councillors may consider a motion that will take action to reduce the greenhouse gas we all produce.

Hi Charles,

I too, am very concerned about climate change, but I'm concerned about geoengineering, now being called climate remediation. For at least the last ten years, the military, including our military, in conjunction with various other players have been injecting various substances into the atmosphere. These include barium and aluminum, mostly in nano partlcles. Please see this website;, as well as this one

The idea of calling this greenhouse gas, then forcing citizens to reduce their use of automobiles and appliances will do little to save us if the military doesn't stop spraying us on a daily basis.

Carbon trading is another scheme brought to us by our friendly banksters.

Just the emissions from the constant flying of the planes with their grid spraying is causing as much as 30 percent of the damage to the environment, this is without even factoring in the aluminum, barium, and other aerosols.
