Climate engineering program puts us in danger

Until about nine months ago, I hadn't heard about Solar Radiation Management, a form of climate engineering that involves spraying highly toxic heavy metal and chemical aerosols from airplanes into the atmosphere. Although SRM is supposed to mitigate climate change by reflecting heat back out into the atmosphere, it is in fact fueling the overall warming of the planet. Increased warming results because the metal oxides form clouds which trap more heat than they reflect out. You may have seen the spraying of these oxides from airplanes and the clouds that form as a result. These clouds are not regular jet engine contrails.

Eventually, the metal aerosols float down to the earth and wreak havoc. SRM is contributing to extreme drought, flooding and storms, accelerating forest devastation and increasing forest fires, killing bees, destroying the ozone layer and creating health problems.

Although the government denies SRM is occurring, available data confirms widespread deployment of SRM programs. Data include precipitation tests from around the world that confirm that alarming levels of aluminum, barium and strontium (named in geoengineering patents) are saturating our breathable air column. Tests of blood, urine and hair confirm extreme buildup of these toxins in humans. We can also see the trails left by the planes spraying the oxides, as well as the resultant clouds.

There are many historical documents and other data on the topic. All of this information can be found at the highly scientific website geoengineeringwatch.org. I urge you to do your own research.

Please come watch a free video from Geoengineering Watch at 4 p.m. Saturday at the Boulder Library, main branch on Arapahoe, in the Arapahoe room upstairs. Feel free to contact me at carolynbninski@gmail.com.

The Democratic Party is a Pro-Choice Party

Democrats For Life of America are in Colorado this month to assert that it is possible to be an anti-choice Democrat. The Democratic party is a pro-choice party; so says the national platform and so do young people. Young people today, such as myself, are living in an age when bodily autonomy is of paramount importance. And young people are overwhelmingly liberal and pro-choice. Each individual deserves the right to make decisions about their own body, and no one else can do that for another individual. This means abortion rights. Women everywhere deserve to decide when and with whom they want to begin a family and deserve the right to choose to terminate a pregnancy without need for justification or fear of retribution. This is exactly why I am a Democrat. Women's rights, abortion rights and LGBTQ rights are simply human rights that every citizen of the U.S. and every person in the world is entitled to.

To run as a pro-life/anti-choice Democrat is to stand in opposition to the current political climate. The party is pro-choice and the future is pro-choice, based off of research done by in 2016 the Pew Research Institute showing that millennials and younger generations are increasingly democratic and increasingly pro-choice. The two principles, being a Democrat and being pro-choice, are inherently tied together. Every woman has the right to make choices about her own body, and if you do not agree with this, you are fundamentally not a Democrat.
