After forest fires around the world, climate change and melting glaciers are once again hot topics on the global agenda. What is surprising, however, is that some who raised hell while warning of global cooling have recently complained about global warming. Well, let’s take a look at what is behind this dichotomy.
Trip to the poles
We have known the French writer Jules Verne since our childhood, with stories such as “Around the World in Eighty Days”, “Five Weeks in a Balloon”, “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea” and “Journey to the Center of Earth. âVerne was curious to explore the world, to learn the secrets underground and other esoteric subjects.
The adventure novel “The Purchase of the North Pole” was one of his lesser-known works. In the first two books in this sequel, “From Earth to the Moon” and “Around the Moon,” the Baltimore Gun Club – a society of post-Civil War American weapons enthusiasts – travels to the moon. In this latest sequel, they want to melt the poles by changing the axis of the Earth. While their primary goal is to stabilize the Earth’s climate, they also have another goal: to take over the coal mines beneath these lands after the ice melts.
Unfortunately, changing the climate by the hand of man is not a whim that only remains in science fiction stories. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration, or NASA, whose travel adventures to the Moon and Mars are shown on screens, has a report titled “A National Recommended Weather Modification Program” from November 1966. In this report, it is recommended that the climate should be changed for various purposes, especially agriculture. Besides, it must be a strange coincidence that the founding of NASA (1958) and the signing of the Antarctic Treaty (1959), which paved the way for free scientific inquiry on the continent, almost took place. the same time.
In fact, it was William Thomson, 1st Baron Kelvin, who first came up with the idea of ââmelting the poles. The Kelvin temperature unit was named after this engineer, physicist. One of the Baron’s friends, who was a member of the Royal Society, was Thomas Henry Huxley – known as Darwin’s Bulldog. Huxley, whose moon crater NASA named, had a grandson named Julian, who was UNESCO’s first director. His brother Aldous was the famous author of the dystopia “Brave New World”, which we live and experience today. Huxley proposed the idea of ââmelting the poles with atomic bombs to obtain new sources of water, during the period when atomic weapons were first used in warfare, on Hiroshima and Nagasaki during WWII. global.
Human interference in the climate was also a popular topic during the Cold War between Russia and the United States. Both sides were looking for ways to harm their opponent by changing the climate. Apart from this, the Soviet Union was planning to build a dam in the Bering Strait between Russia and America (Alaska) in the 1950s. This would change the direction of ocean currents, which would cause glaciers to melt. In this way, new lands and resources would be obtained. Russia still needs melting glaciers to export oil to the Arctic Sea.
The most popular name working on climate change on the American side during the Cold War was meteorologist Harry Wexler. Wexler recommended thermonuclear explosions to melt the poles. As a result of these explosions, the temperature on Earth would rise by about 1.3 degrees.
Wexler was also involved in an atomic radiation project funded by the Rockefeller Foundation in 1955. This involvement is not surprising because the American Rockefeller family, who even own a plateau bearing their name in Antarctica, had a particular interest in this continent. . The report of the Foundation “Petroleum and other minerals in Antarctica”, dated March 5-8, 1979, also shows the reason for the institution’s interest in Antarctica.
The US Air Force’s High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP), launched in 1990, has not forgotten Antarctica either. In the program, research was carried out in airspace by sending electromagnetic waves towards the ionosphere.
A heat wave was also pumped into Ukraine’s Antarctic station as part of the program. Choosing Antarctica to send the heat wave seems like an interesting choice.
In fact, Jules Verne’s curiosity for the underground was not in vain. The elite class itself, which offers a narrow and materialistic worldview and an education to the people, shows a great interest in what the common see as superstition. Some people in this class claim that there is a kingdom called Agartha or Shambhala in the core of the Earth. They believe that this underground kingdom also entered through the poles.
Additionally, scientists such as the Jesuit scholar and polymath Athanasius Kircher, after whom NASA named a crater on the Moon, believed in Agartha. U.S. Admiral Richard E. Byrd, who traveled to the South Pole with funding from the Rockefellers, said there was uncharted lands larger than America here and wrote in his journal that he had met Agartha’s representative at the pole.
A large number of studies are being carried out in Antarctica by scientists affiliated with NASA. For example, NASA, which we found in the poles while searching the sky, is conducting research under the ice in Antarctica with the devices it has developed, claiming that it will be used in new planets to be discovered.
Scientists working here say the world’s water resources are dwindling, and this research is being done to obtain new resources. Whether the goal of these efforts is to reach Agartha or to find new resources, it seems that the melting of the poles is actually a disaster that some wish.
