Earth Day, Geo-Engineering and Chemtrails

Global Research News Hour Episode 101

“Geo-engineering changes our soil PH, it toxifies our soils with aluminum.

We’re seeing crop loss and we’re also seeing eco-system collapses around the world. And geo-engineering creates something that’s called ‘abiotic stress’…well Monsanto has developed a new genetically-modified seed that addresses abiotic stress.” – Michael J. Murphy, Producer/Director of “Why in the World are They Spraying”

Earth Day is celebrated on April 22 each year. This year marks the 45th anniversary of the very first Earth Day which took place in the United States of America. Earth Day was founded by Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson, and coordinated by environmental activist Denis Hayes. [1]

Intended as an environmental teach-in, it attracted the participation of two thousand colleges and universities, about ten thousand primary and secondary schools, and hundreds of communities. [2]

In 2015, multiple stresses on the biosphere have revealed themselves. In addition to the climate crisis which has clearly revealed itself in recent years, the world is witnessing a decline in biodiversity, the increased acidification of our oceans, nuclear contamination from the four year old Fukushima disaster, the expansion of fossil-fuel bearing pipelines, the unknown risks associated with experimentation in genetic modification, and the general toxic atmosphere our twenty-first century life-style has enabled.

The Global Research News Hour pays tribute to Earth Day, and Earth Week with two interviews. One is with Michael J. Murphy. He is the President of The Coalition Against Geoengineering and the award-winning producer and director of the films What in the World are they Spraying? and Why in the World are they Spraying? He discusses the topic of geo-engineering, that is, controlling the weather through artificial means. His website is This interview was recorded in advance of the April 25, 2015 Global March Against Chemtrails and Geoengineering. 

This interview is followed by a conversation with Carrie Saxifrage. Saxifrage was for four years the Sustainability reporter with the Vancouver Observer and has just written a book entitled The Big Swim: Coming Ashore in a World Adrift, a collection of non-fiction stories centred around community in an era of worsening climate change. Saxifrage does her best to live a low carbon lifestyle. She explains in this conversation the difference it can make when you re-frame the climate crisis through stories of personal growth.
