“…West coast journalist William Thomas broke the chemtrails story in Jan. 1999 for the Environment News Service. His book, Chemtrails Confirmed 2004 is fully revised and up to date. His half-hour video – “Chemtrails: Mystery Lines In The Sky” – produced with artist Paul Grignon – remains the definitive documentary on this subject…” The following article originally written in 2005 gives some great detail into what is going on in our skies, worldwide. Currently ongoing and planned aerosol programs under the guise of ‘Atmospheric Science Program (ASP)‘ include two new programs in the coming 2006-07 year ‘Megacity Aerosol Experiment in Mexico City (MAX-MEX)‘ and ‘Cumulus Humilis Aerosol Processing Study (CHAPS)‘. Also lets not forget about High frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) or maybe better explained to you and I here.
Chemtrails Out of the Closet
By William Thomas
As posted at willthomas.net
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.
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 a formerly free and beautiful land called America.
It’s already happening.
Less than two weeks before the bill was introduced, Linda wrote from “up here in the mountains of northeast Georgia” of the worst spray day she had ever seen. But when she pointed out the science fiction sky to another member of her yoga class, the woman promptly moved her mat to the other side of the room!
Over in Blairsville, Georgia, Eric watched broad white plumes deliberately spread by white unmarked plane completely snuff the deep blue vault overhead. “The entire sky cross-stitched with the “white lace” trails he reported on February 12, 2005
“Not one day in the past two months have we had a blue sky with normal clouds,” Linda wrote. 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 is no printing anywhere on the planes.”
Several years ago the US Air Force stated that it was repainting its silver aircraft white, and retrofitting its jet tanker fleet with “hush kits” to silence their engines. [Chemtrails Confirmed by William Thomas]
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 around 35,000 feet.
A previous study on “Owning The Weather: 2025” described how US Air Force tankers crewed by Weather Force Specialists can spread chemicals to produce “artificial overcasts.” More recently, a veteran air force insider told willthomas.net how C-130s are being used to attack violent storms and ricochet radar beams through glass, steel and flesh across the USA.
Weather Mod USA
The newly established 11 member Weather Modification Board of the US government will include representatives of the American Meteorological Society, American Society of Civil Engineers, National Academy of Sciences, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and the National Center for Atmospheric Research of the National Science Foundation of the Department of Commerce.
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.
But no studies have been released on the implications of wide-scale alteration of regional atmospheric heat balances.
Large-scale weather modification is banned under the United Nations Environmental Modification Convention signed by Washington in 1970.
Breaking yet another treaty, the US Weather Modification Act will be officially funded at $10 million a year through 2014. “Black budget” or off-books funding for classified weather modification projects has not been revealed. Actively engaged in weather modification at home and abroad since the 1950s, the air force is currently developing weather modification as a weapon of war under its “Vision 2020” program, which seeks “full spectrum” dominance over the Earth and near space by that date.
But dominating a shipwrecked space colony may prove an elusive victory. As global warming continues to melt the polar ice caps, changing the oceanic circulations that currently warm northern Europe, the UK and the US eastern seaboard, the oceans of this mostly saltwater planet are warming rapidly. High surface temperatures supply extra energy to hurricanes. With ocean warming already amplifying a cyclical upsurge in violent Caribbean hurricanes, atmospheric experts warn of extended hurricane seasons packed with Superstorms in the decades ahead.
Meanwhile, recent heavy “chemtrail” spraying over Portland, Oregon and Canada’s west coast has eased off once again. Another long-time chemtrail “hot zone”, Santa Cruz, California continues reporting clear blue skies unmarked by the chemplanes’ ugly scrawl.
As recently as May 2005, a Swiss resident sent photographs to Meria Heller’s website, reporting: “Today was one of the heaviest Spraying in Switzerland ever.”
Earlier that same month, Steve Davis reported on the Jeff Rense website that “the special spectrums of colors” seen in prismatic chemtrails when viewed against the sun are best described as fourth order birefrigent colors.
This is important, said Davis and reporter Scott Stevens, because the pinks and greens seen in this special “fourth order” spectrum are characteristic of chemtrails—and chemicals seen in polarizing microscopes.
Davis points out that high-altitude ice crystals commonly associated with “sundogs” and similar atmospheric halos around the sun and moon have “a very low birefringence” and are “therefore unlikely to generate the higher birefringent fourth order spectrum greens and pinks seen in chemtrails.”
What is important, Davis emphasizes, “is that ice or water cannot make those chemtrail colors. We usually see water and ice as rainbows or gray-white moon ice halos, not pink and green glowing chemtrails.”
Davis speculates that these “higher order colors are most likely coming from added minerals or perhaps oily fuels/exhausts.” Since laboratory tests of chemtrail fallout in Ontario and Alberta showed highly-reflectant aluminum oxide and barium, these minerals and salts “may be the ones involved in this chemtrail color phenomenon.
Some Canadians 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.
On Thursday morning, May 26, 2005, a Canadian named Garry and a passenger were astonished while driving to work near the Vancouver International Airport to see a four-engine commercial airliner on final approach to Runway 26R “still spraying the
chemtrails. Somebody forgot to turn off the spray!”
Garry estimated the plane’s altitude at 2,000 feet or lower, speed perhaps 200 knots as it slowed on approach with its landing gear down.
The visual aspect through the car’s windshield was head-on. Garry and his companion agreed they were seeing “two large white streams of white material coming from underneath the outer two engines.” Appearing to emanate from beneath the plane’s outer engines, the dual white streams “drooped and trailed the aircraft for approximately one mile before being dispersed.”
Both inner engines were leaving no visible trails.
Garry said the bright white streams “looked like two fire-hose streams.” While he and his fellow eye-witness could not see exactly where the spray started, “it was definitely below and in-line with the outer engines.” The ‘trails “were definitely not coming from the engine exhaust.”
Around the same time as this close encounter, stunning high-resolution photos made by a FED-EX pilot Ziyad Haik shooting through the cockpit windows showed tankers spraying in nearby two-plane elements.
As passengers and federal air regulators can attest, commercial jetliners do not often fly in close formation. [http://www.holmestead.ca/chemtrails/haik.html]
More Chemtrails And A House Call Down Under
On March 31, 2005, Matt Farmer wrote to this reporter from northern New South Wales, Australia—about a nine hour drive north and inland from Sydney. Since moving from to NSW from Melbourne, “they have sprayed us both constantly, and at other times periodically,” Farmer reported, “escalating to the heaviest spraying I have ever seen in Australia in the last few months.”
Farmer says his skin complaints and hacking cough, “I know are from CT’s.”
Like William Wallace and other outspoken Americans who complained to the media about chemtrails, Farmer says his family was visited in a “silencing attempt” four years ago, “when an RAAF F-18 jet flew meters over the roof of my house, full throttle with both engines open, scaring the bejesus out of me and my partner and our two small children, while we were outside enjoying the mountain air one second the next diving for cover and seeing our lives flash before us as what we thought was a bomb about to land on us.”
The jet fighter “screamed overhead and disappearing over the next rise in less than a
second,” Farmer added. Describing himself and his partner as “political activists”, Farmer noted that the day before they had been talking about chemtrails and the Pine Gap US military base in Australia to her father in New Zealand.
Please Don’t Call Again
This reporter enjoyed similar confirmation after phoning NORAD headquarters in Colorado to inquire why all the interceptors launched on the morning of September 1, 2001 flew in “pursuit” at officially announced speeds of 500 mph—when they were capable of flying more than three-times as fast? Soon after Colorado Springs said they’d “get back to me”, an American jet fighter buzzed my place, annoying the locals.
With international communications being continuously monitored, the London Telegraph has described ECHELON as “a global spy network that can eavesdrop on every telephone, email and telex communication around the world.”
Also decrying the microwave and scalar weapons being tested in Australia, Matt Farmer says he “can’t sit back and watch any more.” Determined to “help humanity and mother Earth,” the Aussie declared that he’s had enough and “will not accept injustice and tyranny or biological warfare on any scale.”
Many others would do likewise, he felt, “if only they knew it was happening. That’s the biggest problem we face: people’s ignorance and apathy.”
Air Force Insider Describes Weather Mod Missions
The continuing corporate media blackout of all real news is feeding ignorance, apathy and denial across America. But an active duty air force insider has described environmental combat missions already being flown by specially-outfitted C-130 Hercules transports, which can be reloaded, refueled and relaunched in just 10 minutes to continue their assault on violent storms afflicting US communities.
Flown by regular air force pilots—not reservists—these “science flights” include onboard meteorologists, who painstakingly log the results of each mission. Attempts at storm attenuation involve spraying moisture-absorbing chemicals from each aircraft to take some of the “steam” out of storms. In an early experiment in Florida, an approaching storm cell was completely wiped from the sky—and nearby radar screens—after being sprayed by a single aircraft.
Big storm fronts and hurricanes require a vast amount of absorbent chemicals to reduce their destructive power. 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.
According to the air force insider, whose identity has been verified, 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.
Instead, air force insiders dub the special all-white Boeing 757s recently converted to aerial spray missions, “the Roll’s Royce spray can.” Acquired through a costly and controversial lease program that sparked congressional suspicion, these new tankers are now replacing the aging Boeing 707 tankers known as KC-135s in US military parlance.
Referring to the 757s modified for aerial spraying, the air force insider told willthomas.net, “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. They confirmed that this reporter “has it mostly right” concerning the application and purposes behind chemtrails. But he would not elaborate on my reporting.
European Chemtrail 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).
Brian Holmes says that his copy of the magazine was “an impressive, high quality publication with a circulation of some 50,000, much on the lines of a traditional scientific journal but as a theme it is apparently devoted to popular scientific issues that are otherwise ignored by the controlled mainstream media.”
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 realised, 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.”
Two reasons for inaction by Greenpeace climate change activists were given. First, Studer explained, “There is not a sufficiently solid scientific basis” for Greenpeace to risk its budget and reputation verifying this “supposed phenomenon”. To do so, he added in his memo to Greenpeace staff, “would overstretch our capacities…Important elements of our climate campaign would suffer, particularly the promotion of energy efficiency and of renewable energies, or our active influence in present-day politics.”
Greenpeace relies on the UN climate research committee, the IPCC for its climate change data. Since the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change comprises some 2000 climate experts worldwide, “A widespread deployment of chemtrails could hardly remain hidden from the IPCC,” Cyrill Studer concluded.
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.
If these chemicals are meant to have a real effect in terms of changing the climate, they would need to be distributed worldwide, over large areas, and with great frequency. Otherwise it would have no point at all. It would be a costly project, requiring the investment of vast resources, and carrying with it unforeseeable risks. And in all probability this is not happening.
In July 2004, Stetter reported that chemtrail spraying was being shifted to the cover of darkness, “In order to outwit an increasingly wakeful populace in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.”
To test this hypothesis, Stetter invited EU readers:
Get up at sunrise, and you will see that the sky, from horizon to horizon, is covered with a dense network of chemtrails. But hardly has the day begun, than the spraying is over and the planes have disappeared. When then, only a few hours later, people set off in pale halogene sunlight on their way to work—or to church, because Sundays are particularly suitable for the activity described—streaks of whitish chemtrail soup are already spread out over their heads. Bon appétit!
But Gabriel Stetter was not impressed with Greenpeace’s “in all probability” extemporizing. In an article widely read across Europe, he wrote:
The only difficulty with us chemtrail-believers is that we obviously have a sense-perception problem: While Ms. Läger in Hamburg, despite her knowledge of theoretical ‘proposals’, gazes calmly on a deep-blue sky which is only occasionally disturbed by a lonely vapour-trail, we bleary-eyed chemtrail conspiracy-theorists see, absurdly enough, the precise results of the ‘projects’ Greenpeace describes!
It is precisely this worldwide laying of chemtrails with great frequency and covering large areas, that is continually being documented. It is, as we already know, costly and hazardous, and requires the investment of vast resources.
Stetter believes that the Greenpeace “Rainbow Warriors” know all about the rainbows in the sky. They probably also know of geoengineering studies to reduce incoming sunlight and slow global warming issued by the National Academy of Sciences. “And they may even have taken a look at the Welsbach Patent,” he writes. “But they have no idea what conclusions to draw from the chessboard pattern suspended in the Hamburg sky or the aluminium-enriched ‘rainbows’.
“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?”
As Stetter went on to imply, Greenpeace’s continuing silence on the chemtrails issue is fueling “conspiracy theories” that the world’s purported leader in climate change activism could be receiving directives from the UN-linked Lucis Trust, which reportedly makes large financial contributions to Greenpeace, as well as Amnesty International and similar humanitarian organizations..
“Not a comfortable thought,” Stetter admits. “But one that is hard to resist in this case.”
Stung by attacks from its own supporters for failing to cover one of the biggest environmental issues in modern times, Greenpeace Canada replied by email to a concerned member on September 13, 2004.
Subject: Chemtrails and Greenpeace.
Dear Ms. C—-,
Sadly, there are any number of highly toxic pollutants that are discharged from the average jet engine on a regular, frequent daily basis that are far more immediately and terribly deadly than the barium that may or may not be found in the occasional chemtrail.
After admitting—and dismissing—“the occasional chemtrail” as of no great concern, Greenpeace spokesman Kevin Gamble explained that this international organization never has enough resources to work on all issues, “everywhere, all of the time.” In addition to lacking the funds and cojones to cover chemtrails, Greenpeace is weary of world’s environmental burdens. “People tend to look at us as the solution to the world’s environmental problems, but we aren’t, people like you are. We are merely the messenger,” Gamble insisted.
If so, this messenger is firmly gagged. Pop Quiz: How many times has the loud voice of Greenpeace’s climate change campaigns mentioned the word “chemtrails” over the past six years?
Rule One for organizations funded by donations: Do Not Insult Your Friends. Gamble lost big by attacking this former Greenpeace supporter, snidely saying, “I have looked at our records and it appears that the most recent donation that you have made to Greenpeace was in the year 2000.”
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.”
Among these Swiss chemtrails activists, he explained, “are well-to-do people, who because of their environmental awareness have been for a long time, in some cases for decades, members of Greenpeace.”
Not any more.
“Veteran anti-nuclear activists, campaigners for animal welfare or against electrosmog—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 we have by now 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.”
Even worse than loss of revenue is loss of respect. As Stetter pointed out, “Greenpeace is an organization with a good reputation to lose. if it were to emerge that Greenpeace…is therefore deliberately burying its head in the sand in the chemtrails question, its good reputation could soon be destroyed.”
Reminding readers that Greenpeace is also a fund-raising machine, Stetter suggested that they do not hesitate to let Greenpeace know the power of their purse. “Ask to be sent information on what Greenpeace is planning to do about chemtrails,” he suggested. “Or strike a bargain with Greenpeace: membership in exchange for a genuine clarification of the chemtrails question. But also point out what will happen to your membership or your donation, if Greenpeace remains inactive.”
That threat struck home. As Brian Holmes notes on his website, 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.” [www.holmestead.ca]
German Parlimentartian “admits” Chemtrails
Former six-year a 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.”
After assuring her correspondents, “I share your concern over the use of aluminium or barium compounds which have a considerable 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, aluminium and barium compounds are being spread just as tens of thousands of concerned citizens have observed, documented and bitterly deplored.
So far as Ms. Griefahn is aware the amounts spread have been small, but with all due respect, Honourable Member, we “chemtrail conspirators” know better, because we have, for ages, been looking quite consciously every day.
Thanks for your courage, all the same. Who knows? 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.
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.
