It is high time we address such issues in a more massive medium just like the way you have posted the report of climate change here through the internet. There are number of articles that talk about the same topic . I would like to see more topics of global importance to be talked about in this manner.

This is not a comment about climate "warming", but on my monthly electric bill it compares the past month's average temperature to one year ago at the same time. This year's monthly average was 73 degrees, and last year's same monthly average was 79 degrees. Not an increase, but a significant "change".

There is climate change regards nature's cycles and then there's weather wars - manipulated via H.A.A.R.P. and Chemtrails. There is no 'global warming' and breathing is 'carbon footprints'. There is simply a war on life, on humanity and a huge depopulation agenda whilst perceptions are manipulated to distort the facts, producing profitable and deadly fictions. How do Chemtrails and H.A.A.R.P. affect my life? Same as they affect everyone and everything else's. The difference is that I am aware. I see the difference between clouds and chemtrails, I do my research and listen to the suppressed and gagged scientists.
