Go to In the News indexChemtrails – coming out of the closet?

Last month the Tribune featured a 2-part story titled Chemtrails Over Las Vegas wherein we reported on the purposeful spraying of noxious chemicals overhead. Prior to our story the chemtrail sightings were occurring daily, and then suddenly all chemtrail activity in the Southern Nevada skies stopped abruptly.

Such "chemtrails" are substantially different in appearance to the normal 'condensation' trails left by jet airliners. The difference is that condensation trails are composed largely of water vapor that dissipates rapidly while "chemtrails" linger much longer and spread out over time to eventually cover the sky with a thin haze.

Nearly seven years after extensive "lay downs" of lingering and spreading white plumes were first reported smearing skies over across North America, Europe is in an uproar and Washington could be close to coming clean about chemtrails.

"At least the Bush White house will soon have a legitimate weather control agency to finally 'launder' one of the biggest cons ever perpetrated," writes researcher William Thomas in the August 17th edition of Convergence Weekly.

Introduced in the US Senate on March 1, 2005, Bill S517 calls for a US "Weather Modification Advisory and Research Board" to officially commence operations in October 2005. When passed as expected, this law will make large-scale chemical alteration of the atmosphere legal across the skies of North America.

According to Thomas: Less than two weeks before the bill was introduced, readers wrote from "up here in the mountains of northeast Georgia" of the worst spray day they had ever seen. "Not one day in the past two months have we had a blue sky with normal clouds." Even normal clouds "...are 'laced with whatever the hell is coming out of those white planes that have no engine sounds, even when they fly low enough to see there are no ID markings anywhere on the planes," the readers informed Thomas.

Picture source: The Las Vegas TribuneIndependent researchers have revealed that the "chemtrails" contain a host of poisonous carcinogens including ethylene dibromide (EDB) -- a substance that has been an additive to gasoline and airplane fuels as well as a banned pesticide. Ethylene dibromide has been linked to kidney and liver damage and is an immunosuppressive and a lung irritant. Despite the potential dangers and the growing number of concerned citizens, there has been a virtual media blackout on the subject of chemtrails.

Especially disturbing for residents of heavily chemtrailed communities like Las Vegas is a "chemtrail sickness" associated with heavy spray days leaving many stricken people complaining of the "flu" and acute allergic reactions months after the flu season has ended. Upper and lower respiratory and gastrointestinal ailments remain unusually high in many spray areas, along with debilitating fatigue.

The U.S. Air Force Website refutes the "Chemtrail Hoax" as having been around since 1996: "... accusing the Air Force of being involved in spraying the U.S. population" with mysterious substances... "The 'chemtrail' hoax has been investigated and refuted by many established and accredited universities, scientific organizations, and major media publications," claims the Air Force.

But contrary to the Air Force website denial, scientists working at Wright Patterson Air Force Base confirmed to the Ohio newspaper, Columbus Alive, that they were involved in aerial spraying experiments. One involved aluminum oxide spraying related to global warming and the other involved barium stearate and had to do with high-tech military communications.

Doing something about the weather?

Whatever fresh environmental disaster Bill S517 accomplishes, this bill will ease the way for admission of a project suspected by many and confirmed by air traffic controllers at America's biggest airports. When and if the US public demands that their government "do something" about the extreme weather pummeling their neighborhoods, Washington will be able to officially reply, "We are."

Intended to "develop and implement a comprehensive and coordinated national weather modification policy," the board is tasked with coordinating state and federal weather modification efforts.

It's direct mandate is stepped-up research and development aimed at developing experimental "models, devices, equipment, materials, and processes" to change or control, "by artificial methods" the development of clouds and/or precipitation in the troposphere. This weather-forming region of the atmosphere lies between Earth's surface and the stratosphere, starting at around 35,000 feet.

"The federal weather modifiers will now directly oversee the cloud-seeding operations currently being carried out over dozens of states to increase rain and snowfall for irrigation, electrical power and winter recreation purposes. As droughts intensify under an onslaught of moisture-absorbing chemicals dispensed behind ozone-destroying jet tankers, and future towns wash away in sudden flash floods triggered by rain-inducing atmospheric tinkering, these unnatural disasters and other "inadvertent" effects of weather modification will be closely "studied" by the newly created board," says Thomas.

But no studies have been released on the implications of wide-scale alteration of regional atmospheric heat balances.

And despite the appearance of Bill S517, large-scale weather modification is banned under the United Nations Environmental Modification Convention signed by Washington in 1970.

Chemtrails today

Meanwhile, recent heavy "chemtrail" spraying over Las Vegas and elsewhere in the North American skies has eased off. Another long-time chemtrail "hot zone", Santa Cruz, California, continues to report clear blue skies unmarked by the chemplanes' ugly scrawl.

Canadians also have their eyes wide open. In June 2005, large graffiti spray-painted on a major overpass in West Vancouver advised motorists: WAKE UP, LOOK UP, CHEMTRAILS ARE EVERYWHERE!

USAF insider talks

A senior active duty air force insider has described to Thomas new "environmental-combat" missions already being flown by specially-outfitted C-130 Hercules transports, which can be reloaded, re-fueled and re-launched in just 10 minutes to continue their assault on violent storms afflicting US communities. Flown by regular air force pilots, these "science flights" include onboard meteorologists, who painstakingly log the results of each mission.

"Big storm fronts and hurricanes require a vast amount of absorbent chemicals to reduce their destructive power," Thomas was told by the insider. "To achieve the fast turn-around times needed to complete their missions, flights of returning C-130s taxi to a stop and immediately commence refueling as the empty onboard spray canister is removed. As soon as the empty canister is clear of the aircraft, a waiting truck wheels a semi-trailer-size container of sky-seeding chemicals to the plane's lowered rear ramp, where it is slid inside on rails like a gigantic 'soda dispenser'."

The air force insider added that other spray missions spread (barium) chemtrails to facilitate 3D radar mapping of the entire continental United States. He also said that the air force has been spraying storm fronts "for a long time". The military's main interest, he added, is experimentation aimed at gaining control of the weather for military use.

Did the air force spray this year's first Caribbean hurricane, in which the western quadrant disintegrated just before making its Texas landfall? "There's no reason they wouldn't," the air force insider replied.

But C-130 turboprops would not necessarily be used to try to influence hurricanes that typically release more energy than all atomic arsenals combined. Referring to the 757s-767's recently modified for aerial spraying, the air force insider told Thomas, "We've got them, but I can't talk about them."

He added that many people in the air force "are aware of William Thomas" and his reporting on chemtrails. The air force insider confirmed that this reporter "has it mostly right" concerning the application and purposes behind chemtrails. But would not elaborate on my reporting.

And now a European uproar

Meanwhile, the chemtrails controversy has taken Europe by storm following a series of articles by Swiss freelance journalist Gabriel Stetter in the German popular science magazine Raum+Zeit (Space and Time), circulation circa 50,000. Stetter's first article, "White Skies" created a public relations nightmare for Greenpeace when it informed readers in January 2004 how "Thousands of people were thoroughly shocked when they realized, and were informed by Greenpeace in Germany, Switzerland and Austria that for some reason or other Greenpeace has no interest in the chemtrail question whatsoever."

The Swiss government also came under public pressure to explain the checkerboards being painted in its skies. On March 5, 2004 the Environment Department in Berne, Switzerland responded to an inquiry by Rudolf Rechsteiner, a Social Democratic member of parliament, admitting that "A number of ideas exist that show how it would be possible to reduce global warming by technical means, at least in the short term."

But these ideas, the government office hastened to add, "are no more than theoretical. We are not aware of any practical application of these methods, either at home or abroad."

Ten days later, Greenpeace Switzerland climate and transport expert Cyrill Studer wrote an internal memo assuring colleagues that while he had "heard of the chemtrails phenomenon," for the present, Greenpeace "will not be following up the theme of chemtrails."

But outside Greenpeace's corporate offices, the controversy continued. On June 11 German Greenpeace spokeswoman Kristine Läger told concerned constituents: "The idea of reducing global warming by putting chemicals in the atmosphere has been around a long time. There are various proposals in this direction, suggesting the chemicals should be independently sprayed and that they should be mixed with the fuel of ordinary passenger aircraft. Whether in Germany such proposals have reached the point of actual realization is highly questionable. So far as we are aware there are no indications from research and observation of weather and climate that these so-called chemtrails exist. Nor are we aware of any project that has been realized in practice. In all probability this is not happening."

"Well, supposing the word 'chemtrails' appeared in print in the Greenpeace Magazine," Stetter speculates. "How many tens of thousands of people more would look up into the sky and recognize that the supposedly Utopian "proposal" has long moved on via "spraying trials" to a systematic, long-term spreading of cloud cover over the whole of Europe?"

Back in Basel, Gabriel Stetter quoted unsourced opinion polls showing that in this "stronghold" of chemtrails believers - one in ten people - "have already heard of them despite the media blackout. Several thousand people in the prosperous town at the bend in the Rhine know that the chemtrails phenomenon suggests that something is seriously wrong."

Not members any more

"Veteran anti-nuclear activists, campaigners for animal welfare or against electro-smog - in their alarm they had all turned to Greenpeace because of the chemtrails, which are visible everywhere in the skies above Basel. But a painful experience awaited all of them. They were palmed off with the same unsatisfactory answers that concerned Americans have grown tired of hearing. The consequence drawn by these elderly well-to-do activists, from Greenpeace's lack of interest, was the immediate cancellation of membership of many years, the withdrawal of legacies, and the withholding of payments to Greenpeace until further notice," said Stetter.

As Brian Holmes notes on his website, www.holmestead.ca, the October 2004 issue #131 of the Raum + Zeit contained many pages of letters from readers responding positively to Stetter's first article in issue #127. "Many of these letters are illustrated with color photographs supplied by the readers themselves."

German Parlimentarian admits chemtrails

A former six-year board member of Greenpeace Germany, Monika Griefahn chaired the Committee for Culture and Media of the Federal German Parliament when she replied to a letter from two chemtrails dissenters in July 2004, stating, "I am in basic agreement with your concerns. Instead of making a concerted and determined effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions throughout the world, experiments of various kinds are being carried out in the earth's atmosphere in order to cure the symptoms."

Ten days later, Greenpeace Switzerland climate and transport expert Cyrill Studer wrote an internal memo assuring colleagues that while he had "heard of the chemtrails phenomenon," for the present, Greenpeace "will not be following up the theme of chemtrails."

But outside Greenpeace's corporate offices, the controversy continued. On June 11 German Greenpeace spokeswoman Kristine Läger told concernederable toxic potential," the parliamentarian went on to say, "however, so far as I am aware the extent of their use is so far minimal." "At last!" Stetter announced in the German science magazine. "There we have it. In the skies of Germany, so Social Democratic member of Parliament Monika Griefahn tells us, aluminum and barium compounds are being spread just as tens of thousands of concerned citizens have observed, documented and bitterly deplored."

Thanking the Honorable Griefahn her for her courage, Stetter suggested, "Maybe one day statues of politicians like Monika Griefahn or the equally plucky US Congressman Dennis Kucinich will adorn in marble splendor the squares of newly verdant German or American cities." "That would be nice," writes Thomas, "but the public outcry in Europe will have to spread to North America if we are to stop this massive, illegal and continuing air and atmospheric pollution."
