Both my husband and I are big Sci-Fi movie and book fans. We genuinely believe that these books and movies, both of which we consider Art forms, imitate "life" in many ways.
One of the best is Highlander II. By 1999, Conner McLeod (one of the immortals) has become supervisor of a scientific team headed by Allan Neyman, which is attempting to create an electro-magnetic sheild to cover the planet, and protect it from the Sun's radiation.
The team succeeds, in effect giving Earth an artificial ozone layer. But unfortunately, the shield has the side effect of condemning the planet to a state of constant night, a high average global temperature and high humidity.
By 2024, the years of darkness have caused humanity to loose hope and fall into decline. The Shield has fallen under the control of the Shield Corporation. The corporation's current chief executive is focused on profit, and is imposing fees for the corporations services. A number of terrorist groups have begun trying to take down the Shield, among them Louise Marcus, a former employee of the Shield Corporation.
Louise Marcus discovers that the ozone layer has in fact restored itself naturally, which means that the shield is no longer needed. The Shield corporation is aware of this development, but has chosen to hide it from the general public, in order to maintain it's source of profit.
Many other shenanigans go on with Conner but suffice it to say that both he an Louise are able to succeed in taking down the Shield by using the energies of his final Quickening from General Katana. Louise is able to see the stars for the first time in her life.
The movie's story is great fun, totally way out and could never come near to happening, right? Well that's what I thought when I first saw the movie back in 1991, but not now.
By now many people have seen crisscrossing streaks of white clouds trailing behind jet aircraft, they stretch from horizon to horizon, eventually turning the sky to a murky haze. By researching it we read that they are called contrails by the government and chem-trails by those of us who feel they are not mere vapor trails from jet engines. But as yet no one has deeply probed the serious questions of who is doing this and why.
But with the release of the new movie "What in the World Are They Spraying?" all this has changed. (You can see the movie for free in it's entirety on You Tube.)
Here is a story of a rapidly developing industry called Geo-Engineering, (Geographical Weather Engineering), driven by scientists, corporations and governments intent on changing global climate; controlling the weather and altering the chemical composition of soil and water. All this is supposedly for the betterment of mankind.
Although officials insist that these programs are only in the discussion phase, evidence is abundant that they have been underway since about 1990. In effect it has had devastating effects to crops, wildlife and human health. We are being sprayed with toxic substances (like aluminum and barium) without our consent.
Even if you are skeptical; I encourage you to watch this movie. The truth really is stranger than any science fiction story.
