War and the Green New Deal: Integrating perspectives

Billions of people have energized the transition to sustainable practice for decades; billions have worked for peace for centuries. Our struggle to “reinvent” both civilian and military economies escalates along with our planet crises.

So the renewed call for a Green New Deal, energizing new citizen activists, is welcome and necessary. Including the dispossessed in the remake of our economies to sustainable standards, addressing social and economic problems, is essential for survival.

Does it matter whether corporate foundations finance the Green New Deal and other climate action groups? Only if it also serves the hidden agenda. How to detect that? By the results. How many groups include war as a cause of climate change?

The UN IPCC does not. Our world government reports only on the impacts of the civilian economy. That policy was decided 22 years ago by US corporate and military lobby; the UN is still giving us only half the picture in their most recent Reports. It looks like most climate action groups follow this ‘lead’.

By this result, it’s clear that the corporate-military agenda directs and limits public attention to the civilian economy. Why? They want no limits to growth on war.

Since our taxes pay for all their war industries, public opinion must accept escalating military spending, source of their obscene wealth. Corporations get tax deductions as non-profit foundations; again they use public money to shape society to their interests, while posing as humanitarian philanthropists sharing their wealth, earned by hard work and smart investment in Business As Usual. They make money every step of the way. And since the military always gets the billions the need to keep us ‘secure’, and since war needs oil, the net effect of the hidden agenda is to maintain fossil industries for war: state-sanctioned mass murder for global domination and depopulation.

It’s a shocking, unbelievable picture. No citizen would knowingly support this.

Should we then denounce the GND (which many do for various reasons) as a possible Trojan Horse for the military-industrial dominators? I see the good work and the corporate manipulation existing at the same time. Both are part of the complexity of interconnected civilian and military economies and politics, now polarized.

That polarity defines the work we need to do: bring war as one more cause of climate crisis to public attention, to balance public perception and illuminate new paths to change.


BC wildfires give “insight into nuclear winter”

A study of the unprecedented forest fires of 2017 in BC and Yukon, by scientists from Rutgers University, “discovered that when smoke and soot are forced up beyond the rainy troposphere into the dry atmosphere, they linger, then rise even higher as they absorb sunlight and remain detectable even many months later.” (Vancouver Sun, August 9, 2019, NP1,2, by Joseph Brean)

Super-heated by incendiary chemtrail metals fallen to Earth, massive Pacific Northwest wildfires lowered temperatures in the Arctic for a short time. (https://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/climate-engineering-wildfires-to-temporarily-cool-earth/)

“The smoke plume was so big, in fact, that the only applicable modelling of how it would behave had been done to forecast a nuclear winter”, demonstrating that “a relatively small nuclear war…could cause climate change.”


A divided country?

The blocks of blue and red (with patches of other colours) on the map of the election results, reflecting our ‘divided country’, gives a misleading impression. Hidden within those blocks is the colourful patchwork of votes in each community and region. The divisions reside in each community.

This map shows only the winners of our first-past-the-post system. The visual image reinforces our habit of competition and conflict—also today’s primary global dynamic. Voters did the best they could within the restrictions of that system, electing people from every party with no single power: as close as we can get to proportional representation. We did indeed tell our elected representatives to work together.

But can we expect those few energetic folks in Parliament to resolve the contradictions in our various world views? If we address the divisions in each community locally, we can take some responsibility in this gargantuan task, resolve some local diversity in perspectives and understanding, and move toward realistic solutions to our many crises.

As in every crisis, political and personal, dialogue and communication move toward resolution. Each community could take this on with local meetings specifically intended to bring the voters of every party together for respectful communication. These could be informal meetings to discuss particular policies; or a kind of Citizen House of Commons and Senate, talking together about issues currently in debate in Parliament.

We can’t wait for our competitive system to actualize pro-rep. Our survival crisis calls on us all to initiate new pathways to reconciling our differences. Any degree of reconciliation of polarities, in any country, works toward unifying all people of the Earth.



Extreme reversals signal weather war

“B.C. set new lightning strike record amid quiet fire season”  

Vancouver Sun, Sept. 14/19, page A10, Randy Shore

The sudden decline of forest fires this summer, like the sudden escalation in 2017 and 2018 (which saw more land burned in those two years than in the past 25 years combined: 2.57 million hectares) suggests that more than ‘Mother Nature’ or climate change alone are at work.

At the same time, “Environment and Climate Change Canada has recorded 422,000 lightning strikes this year in the province, far above the 18-year average of 266,000. July alone saw 264,344 lightning strikes, said meteorologist Matt MacDonald”.

Last year (2018) BC experienced 1,528 lightning strikes, and the unprecedented number of 2,068 extreme wildfires.

The BC decline in fires is attributed to “timely rainfall”. Mr. MacDonald explains that “much of the province was wetter than normal with 120- to 200-per-cent-higher-than-normal rainfall”. He adds that two wet weather systems are about to hit the coast: “We could get as much as 40 to 50 millimetres of rain in the next two-and-a-half days on the south coast, and that will carry through to the interior”. Ashlee Jollymore of the Rivers Forecast Centre “Intense rainfall is more likely to cause water pulses and washouts in small streams”.

In her landmark book, Planet Earth: The Latest Weapon of War, Dr. Rosalie Bertell explains (p134) how lightning can be generated by Extremely Low Frequency signals from the phased array of antennas of an ionospheric heater, releasing immense electrical energy from the ionosphere in imitation of the natural process.

Using a range of electromagnetic frequencies the heater can also manipulate the jet stream, the electrojet, and the ten rivers of water vapour that circulate at high speeds around Earth to cause flood or drought, intensify and ‘steer’ hurricanes, and destabilize tectonic plates and volcanoes.

This year, lightning came with record rainfall; last year, with record fires. All three extreme weather reversals support evidence of weather war, confirmed by the sighting of infrared emissions (used in weapons guidance) prior to the devastating Stikine fires last year. Apparently military geo-engineers plan a roller coaster ride of fire and flood.

Why? Disaster capitalism, detailed in Naomi Klein’s book, The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism, is an effective means of discouraging Indigenous Nations from opposing resource exploitation of their unceded territories. They are hard hit, with fires impacting traditional food resources; and rebuilding their communities challenges their economies—limited by legislation refusing them the use of their own resources. Their settler neighbours, and many city dwellers, must also spend to rebuild.

This summer—2019—record fires were moved to Alberta, Yukon Territory and Alaska. At the same time, Europe was hit by record heat, which saw a ‘high pressure system’ (like the one that was stalled on the entire West Coast last year) moving toward the Arctic. Satellite images look like Russia is being ‘carpet-bombed’ by fire.

Weather war makes punishing ‘rogue states’, attacking political opponents, or seizing Indigenous resources, easy, and ‘deniable’.

These relentless extremes hit the human spirit. Piling on the stress is a form of hybrid warfare: a variety of means of attacking just whoever they want, is now made easy by electromagnetic weapons technology. The push for 5G takes these EM attacks into our homes and minds.

Owning the weather for military use has been a goal of the global military since WWII when, after the US genocide in Japan, nuclear bombs were considered too hazardous to use. The US military is working toward “full spectrum dominance by 2020”, in pursuit of the published “Blueprint for a New American Century” and their goal of a “New World Order”. But other countries also participate, including Canada.

“Not only the U.S. is involved with this high tech assault on the earth system! At least Russia, China, the U.K. Australia, Canada and Japan are involved. The geo-warriors are, I believe, wishing to go public with even more risky experiments, with public approval, and maybe even become „climate change heroes‟! At the United Nations Conference on Climate Change in Copenhagen, 2010, geo-warriors made their most public pitch under the guise of “geoengineering” as a “solution to global climate change”. Those who watch the military prepare for a weather war are alarmed!” http://www.pbme-online.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Bertell.Slowly-Wrecking.pdf#7s8d6f87#7s8d6f87

Geo-engineered Wildfire devastation in Portugal 2017


Central Portugal / Tábua since December 2017

002 (1)

Evil Fire

Fragmented thoughts

Of lives suddenly shattered

Blown out and lost in weeping grass.

Shards of a broken rainbow,

Discordant trails that jump from Personal to large scale loss.

Visions of flames falling down mountainsides, a home that crashed Onto precious memories

Tucked under pillows, hidden in boxes And running, confused in circles

As the end drew in. Rising

with ashes and toxic smoke.

Emptiness ready to be filled

With colour echoing mortality

And embracing the preciousness

Of every heartbeat.

“Our Mission”

“Why Fire” is a nonprofit group with Portuguese and international residents who all chose Portugal for a better life! Leaving materialism-oriented countries behind, we wish to live and work closer to nature, with small holdings, our own vegetable gardens, animals and very nice and solidary Portuguese neighbours. That is why we have chosen the countryside of the Center of Portugal!

The group was founded in December 2017 in the Region of Tábua, witnessing the “Crime of Geoengineered Fires in Portugal in 2017”. More than 500 000 HA of forest, landscapes, houses and industry burnt down within two weekends (17/18 June – and 15/16 October 2017).

“The biggest and hottest fires ever in Europe.” Men-made “Geographical Disaster” with the same quality as the fires in California, Australia and Canada in 2017.

“Geoengineering to control the planet and the population in the 21st Century?”

Group Why Fire stands up to preserve Nature! 

*We do research with national scientists and action groups as well as with international Resistance movements  and hope that more Why Fires Groups emerge in our Planet!

  • We would like to aim for equal rights, respect and freedom for all inhabitants.
  • Together we need to take back our human rights, which are our water, our sun, our blue sky, our clean oxygen, free mind, thoughts and creativity!

*We consider ourselves to be a group for Awareness and Action, to investigate corruption and exploitation of our planet and humanity.

We are covering subjects like 

Geoengineering & HAARP “Disaster Capitalism” and “Geographical Climate War”

Agenda 21/30                       “Control of weather and control of population”,

Vaccinations, Bayer/Monsanto, 5G Program for Portugal, …

Positive Energy Sources     Physical protection and spiritual strength

Whistleblower UN IPCC scientists identify IPCC conflict of interest

Many scientist co-authors of past IPCC Reports point out that the intergovernmental panel is a political, not a scientific, body. After scientists submit the assigned papers, diplomats appointed by each country work together to ‘adjust’ the findings of the scientific panels.

Dissenting scientists say that the published Report—a summary of 7000 pages—does not represent the consensus of the world’s top scientists as the UN IPCC claims, but rather, that the IPCC uses the credibility of science to push political agendas. https://granitegrok.com/blog/2017/02/un-scientists-turned-ipcc

What agendas might these be? Clearly, the fact that the IPCC still keeps military emissions out of their analyses and Reports illuminates the primary global political agenda: there are to be no limits to growth on war. Rigid focus (for 22 years) on the civilian economy distracts us, to enable continued expansion of the military death machine: fighting over Earth’s remaining resources, and reducing the number of people who share them.

Whistle-blower scientists from many fields have varied ideas to explain the global crisis—even that warming is not happening, or is caused by other factors than human industry.

‘Other factors’ include weather war: the global military’s best-kept secret; but the scientists I’ve read so far don’t mention it. The destabilization of our planet’s systems is man-made, to a great degree, with “the “ultimate weapon of mass destruction: ‘owning the weather’ for military use”. Professor Michel Chossudovsky, Center for Research on Globalization provides photos and details: http://www.globalresearch.ca/theultimateweaponofmassdestructionowningtheweatherformilitaryuse2/5306386;

Dr. Rosalie Bertell explains that geomagnetic weather warfare causes some part of the climate disasters around the world. From flood, drought, and hurricane to earthquake, these electromagnetic weapons have the capacity to kill hundreds to thousands of people at once. These are secret wars, seen as Acts of God or climate change, very efficiently carrying out the primary agenda: depopulation and global military dominance.

“This is not to say that military experimentation causes all atmospheric events and ultimately climate change. I am just saying that it is difficult in each case to separate out the military geo-experiments from the genuine heavings of the planet! The increase in violent weather is obvious to everyone. Is Mother Earth trying to send us a message of distress? Is only the civilian economy responsible for climate change? I think not!”

Conventional war with Iran not possible

Weather war is possible, however. The satellite images of fires in Russia look like carpet bombing. What weather war may be happening in Iran?


Wildfire weather war on Russia

Shocking aerial views of the fires in the Arctic, all around the northern hemisphere. But most concentrated in Russia–caused also by lightning. It seems totally obvious that this is the U.S. attacking Russia. It looks like carpet bombing.


Fires in Canada discourage Indigenous Nations from protecting their homelands and further corporate takeover of their resources. But why Greenland? Are the weather warriors losing control of their technologies?

Celebrating Radical Peace


Janet Lynn Rutherford


An original activist bringing the terrible human consequences of war to public awareness, Lynn was a woman who lived her life as a full human being, ignoring every restriction of our culture and times. She used her spirited talents in music and art to communicate her message.

Long before the internet, she organized global conversations by computer and radio transmission on the anniversaries of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki genocide, between friends in Vancouver, California, and Japan as well as Russia. She initiated a walk for peace to Russia and did that, with several friends, by foot and train to Moscow and St. Petersburg, at a time when cold war tensions were high. Her energy for connecting people informed her life.

She connected with me: showed this alienated, conservative person how to go ahead and do what means most to you. My family having narrowly escaped WWII in Europe, with infant me, the trauma of war and displacement has been integral to my being. Her work to connect people and bring messages of healing and action gave me new vistas of possibility. Her untimely death is a great loss to us all.

Peoples’ Search and Rescue was her storefront in Vancouver’s downtown East Side before activism caught hold there. Everyone was welcome to visit, make friends, participate, check the extensive bulletin board for jobs, occasional work, lost dogs and cats, a place to stay. It was there I learned not to fear the disadvantaged: kind people, victims at home of our conflicted, war-torn world.

Throughout her life, her various homes and properties also welcomed whoever arrived, becoming spirited centres of mutual learning. Her music and art encouraged us all to participate whether we knew how or not. She played her guitar there and at demonstrations; sang songs of awareness few of us mainstream folks had heard of. Richard and Mimi Farina’s ‘If somehow you could pack up your sorrows and give them all to me…’ still resonates in my mind. Lynn taught me this round song that still speaks of the activist class—‘nouveau pauvre’:

‘Ego sum pauper. Nihil habeo. Cor meum dabo.’

Invited to several of her trips to the San Francisco Bay area, where she partly grew up, I learned radical politics. Informal lectures at the University of Berkeley, initiated by students and innovative professors, blew my straight-laced mind with discussions of the complications of democracy—right in the heart of the institutional beast. The creative counter-culture chaos enriched my imagination with new art and music, and my understanding of proactive organizing.

Lynn was always ready to discuss and argue perspectives; we were both strong-minded and passionate about our opinions, but her persistence in coming to a common appreciation of our differences never faltered. She was my best friend—through an astounding fifty years of working at mutual understanding and empathy. Her spirit informs my work today. She would be right onto this ultimate threat to humanity with all her light energy.

Thank you, Lynn!
