USHFC-2015-Resolution Re: Global Ban on Geoengineering
2015 U.S. Health Freedom Congress
Hamline University, St. Paul, Minnesota, October 19 th and 20 th 2015
Resolution Supporting a Global Ban on Geoengineering
We, the People of Planet Earth, as the collective stewards and holders of the commonwealth of this planet, are demanding a full and complete ban, immediate cessation, and indefinite suspension of all geoengineering practices and related activities being conducted on this planet or being planned as future activities for Planet Earth.
Geoengineering is defined herein as: the application of technology, methods, and resources to alter the earth in a manner that is detrimental to life on this planet and the common resources shared by its inhabitants.These resources encompass the earth’s lithosphere, hydrosphere,
biosphere, atmosphere, and outer space. This includes, but is not limited to, activities in domains such as tectonics, soil and minerals, agriculture, ocean dynamics, weather, the electrical and magnetic fields and other energy systems of the earth, and the development of space weapons.
In determining what is detrimental, the precautionary principle shall apply. This precept states that an action should not be taken if the consequences are uncertain and potentially dangerous to the public or to the environment. Those who advocate any technologies of geoengineering shall be subject to this principle and the burden of proof shall fall upon them as articulated in the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development, (Rio Summit, Rio Conference, Earth Summit, UNCED)in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, June 1992.
- This ban also applies to the use of harmful chemical and biological agents for geoengineering purposes. We do not consent to the use of geoengineering for any purpose.
- There shall be no exceptions for geoengineered systems for national defense, national security, or military applications, including weapon systems or advanced surveillance systems. The principles established within theConvention on the Prohibition of Military
or Any Other Hostile Use of Environmental Modification Techniques(Environmental Modification Convention,ENMOD), December 1976, shall apply.
- There shall be no exceptions for geoengineering actions that involve medical, experimental, therapeutic, or pharmaceutical applications upon the population without informed consent. The principles of the Nuremberg Code and the World Medical
Association Declaration of Helsinki (Ethical Principles for Medical Research Involving Human Subjects) shall apply.
- There shall be no exceptions for geoengineering practicesthatalter the basic underlying chemical or biological processes of agriculture.
- There shall be no exceptions for geoengineering practices that interfere with or are harmful to industry.
- There shall be no exceptions for use of geoengineering practices for law enforcement purposes, including surveillance or riot control.
- There shall be no exceptions for covert geoengineering operations.
This ban shall remain in effect until an international scientific review process is in place to evaluate the scope, definition, and applications of geoengineering and the potential detrimental impact to humankind. The conditions of this ban shall apply until scientific proof of safety has
been established by an international panel consisting of independent scientists and with representation that includes developing nations.
The process of evaluation of any project shall include a full and transparent description of the project and its potential impacts. The process of review shall be well publicized internationally and it shall include open discourse, collection of public comments and criticism, and exploration of possible alternative approaches. The international review panel shall then make the final determination as to whether the proposed project or activity is acceptable or subject to the ban on geoengineering. The precautionary principle shall always apply in the decision process. If the final determination allows for acceptance of a project, there shall be ongoing monitoring, evaluation, and reporting of the environmental or other impacts of the project.
This declaration has been initiated by a task force representing a coalition of health freedom organizations concerned about present and future effects of geoengineering activities. We ask that all nations, coalitions, and alliances act to endorse and implement the principles of this document for the benefit of all mankind.
