Analysis / Bias
In review, GeoEngineering Watch is primarily concerned with weather manipulation for sinister means and the use of HAARP. For example, they claim that the devastating hurricane Florence was manipulated by Microwaves Transmissions, and that the government is using Chemtrails for control of the environment as well. Throw in some anti-vaxx hysteria, and you have yourself a truly tin foil-quackery website.
