Professor Daniel Rosenfeld
Research Interests: The questions that drive my research are understanding man-made impacts on cloud composition, precipitation, Earth energy budget and the implications to the climate variability and change. This is done by a combination of in-situ measurements with cloud physics aircraft campaigns into clouds around the world and remote sensing with radars and satellites, including the design of new dedicated space missions. All these observations are integrated and interpreted by model simulations of cloud aerosol interactions.
Saturday, February 20, 2010 – Annual AAAS Meeting (American Association for the Advancement of Science) at the San Diego Convention Center. Scientist Alan Robock, Rutgers University, meets with protesters before his scheduled session, “Can Geoengineering Save Us from Global Warming? “. Protesters claim geoengineering is already taking place with chemical spraying (via persistant jet trails also known as “chemtrails”) while Mr. Robock argues they are confused with normal contrails that produce cirrus clouds.
Alan Robock is funded by the US National Science Foundation, to evaluate “the efficacy and possible consequences of proposals to reduce incoming solar radiation to counteract global warming by injecting aerosol particle into the stratosphere.” Recent papers describe climate model simulations and the benefits, risks, and costs of stratospheric geoengineering.
01:12 “we’re concerned about the moral hazard that if people think geoengineering would work there would be less push to do mitigation…” or people will think it’s really scary and we’ll push even harder for mitigation.
02:00 “There is no such thing as ‘massive spraying'”
Weather Modification for hire:
02:38 “As a scientist, if you’re making claims you need to have the ‘trail of evidence'” [chemtrails?]
02:52 “There is no evidence”
03:12 “You have no evidence”
03:35 “I’m just a scientist, sorry.”
05:34 Rolls eyes, “Can I answer your question?” Well IF you don’t want to listen…
06:36 “Do you think I’m part of the ‘conspiracy’?”
07:04 “Do you know how I get money?” The government gives me money…link:
07:55 “But you have no evidence…”
10:06 Long range transport of air pollution from China… [where does the pollution sprayed over California fall?]
10:38 “It’s not anybody doing anything on purpose, it’s just part of pollution.” and your confused…

AEROSOL SPRAY GEOENGINEERING IS A HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATION, AN ANIMAL RIGHTS VIOLATION AND AN ENVIRONMENTAL RIGHTS VIOLATION
Geoengineering is a CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY when it is forced, without consent. It is a Weapon of Mass Destruction (WMD).
HEADS UP FOLKS – March 22nd GeoEngineers Meeting in Monterey, CA
ALERT- Geo-Engineering Scientists to Meet on the Monterey Peninsula; Asilomar State Beach and Conference Grounds
On March 22-26, 2010, the Climate Respond Fund is sponsoring the Asilomar International Conference on Climate Intervention Technologies in Monterey, California. This Conference will address and develop guidelines for research and testing of proposed climate intervention and geoengineering technologies.

HAMBURG, GERMANY / ZURICH, SWITZERLAND — As temperatures on Earth reach unprecedented highs, extreme, potentially disastrous weather will be more likely. Scientists say there may be ways to intervene, but warn that they come with risky consequences.
Business Insider reports that two recently published papers in the journal Science are investigating strategies for geoengineering, which is the artificial modification of environmental processes or climate systems, as a way of combating climate change.
One such strategy is mimicking the effects of a volcanic eruption.
Erupting volcanoes spew out large amounts of sulfur-rich gases, which help cool the Earth by reflecting solar radiation back into space.
The same effect can be recreated using planes that would inject sulfur into the atmosphere. But to cool the planet by 1 degree Celsius, 6,700 injections are needed eventually, which will cost $20 billion annually.
This approach also risks destroying the ozone layer and reducing rainfall, enough to potentially cause droughts in certain regions.
A similarly drastic approach to cooling Earth can be achieved by thinning heat-trapping cirrus clouds. Seeding causes the clouds to break apart and lets more heat escape.
The seeding process, however, must be precise, otherwise new cirrus clouds may form elsewhere and add to the warming effect.
But while sulfur injections and cirrus cloud seedings will cool the land, carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere remain the same, and ocean acidification continues.
As such, researchers argue the two strategies should be deployed more as a last resort, adding that reducing carbon emissions are much more effective at curing climate change.
