Clouds with Silver (Iodide) Linings?

Chemtrails get a bad rap.

I don’t find it so hard to believe that aerosols are being released into the atmosphere, but my train of thought on the subject runs along a different set of tracks.

To imagine that the waste products of the chemical industry, which are so very expensive to store/bury/dispose of, could not be re-purposed into a product such as: Sulphur (S8, used in the steel industry et al.) used in bullets, fluoride (F-,  NaF / F6H2Si, by-products of the fertilizer industry and used in the aluminum industry) used in toothpaste / tap-water, benzene (C6H6, a by-product of the petroleum industry) used in cigarettes, who-knows-what in fracking fluids, micro- and nano-sized particles in cloud seeding formulations,…) is simply naïve.

The Albertan insurance industry has been diverting and minimizing hailstorms by using cloud-seeding/desiccant programs to avoid damage to Calgary’s automobiles. The consequence is that some of these storms move further east and hit the crops instead.

In this way, the toxic waste, which cannot be safely disposed of on land without polluting an entire site forever (insurance companies have been actively funding cloud-seeding experiments for many decades; toxic waste spills at dump sites represent an enormous potential cost for these companies,) can be used as a raw material in a proprietary formula (like the Colonel’s seventeen herbs and spices or Coca-Cola’s secret recipe) and thus be re-classified from being ‘toxic waste’ to being a potentially harmful product but used in acceptably small doses.

Concentrated hexafluorosilicic acid is corrosive and toxic, but in everyday use, it is so diluted as to be less harmful.

Warm cloud seeding is not conducted nearly as frequently as silver iodide cloud seeding, and the effect of warm cloud seeding agents on the environment is not as well known. Warm cloud seeding agents are salts. Preliminary results suggest that because the amounts of seeding agent used are so small, even these warm cloud seeding materials probably do not have any significant impacts.

Wouldn’t it just be a lot cheaper to spray it out of a plane? Maybe the chemical industry is running out of land to bury its harmful by-products. They have to dispose of it somehow; so why not sell it instead of burying it? It would simply need to be mixed in with the jet fuel, which is a ‘dirty’ fuel to begin with, as anyone trying to use kerosene in a camping stove not designed for it will testify. It plugs the tiny spray nozzles. Modern jet engines are designed to mitigate this occurrence.

It is easy to see how all of this could be linked to the so-called increase in extreme weather due to climate change despite the fact that Hermine (cat.1) was Florida’s first hurricane in over a decade, and that there have been no deaths due to a hurricane in the USA since Katrina, also more than a decade ago.

The problem is not one of albedo, nor is it one of nucleation; it is rather one of pollution because we breathe it and we end up eating it, too. Very small particles can be inhaled and can cross the blood-brain barrier (search Russell Blaylock for more info. He has, unsurprisingly, been labelled a conspiracy theorist for some of his views.) It falls on the grass like an imperceptibly fine mist. The cows eat the grass, we eat the cows. It falls onto our rivers but is too small for our filtration plants’ pores sizes. We drink them in suspension.

The worst part is that in most cases, the difference in levels may be too small to measure accurately. This means that any research into the issue can be put down quickly as just another ‘conspiracy.’ If one cannot prove something beyond a reasonable doubt, that thing is not valid and as a result, is not worthy of consideration.

Climate engineering, commonly referred to as geoengineering, also known as climate intervention, is the deliberate and large-scale intervention in the Earth’s climatic system with the aim of limiting adverse climate change.

SRM (Solar Radiation Management), AWM (Atmospheric Water Management) are two terms used to cloud (excuse the pun) the discussion surrounding geo-engineering. The claim is that much is known about the potential environmental effects, which would be minimal – so they say, but NASA launched a satellite to study aerosols, and CERN has built a cloud chamber to study the same thing. If so much is known, why then fund these very very expensive tests? Monitoring experiments and testing conclusions seem to be reasonable guesses. Is the atmosphere being experimented on as was the case during nuclear atmospheric tests (which are no longer permitted due to health and environmental concerns?) Will we ban the practice only after tests are concluded?

Most who deny the existence of chemtrails fall back on one of two positions: 1) The long clouds left behind jets are contrails, not chemtrails, and 2) despite it having been talked about in US government documents, military documents, environmental assessments, university symposiums, and think-tank meetings, there is no evidence of it having been implemented.

Some of you may remember that during the sixties, seventies, and eighties, jets left very short contrails, maybe five to ten times the length of the plane. Jet engines built these days are more efficient than older models and leave significantly less contrails than did their predecessors. It is common to see jets leaving no contrails at all, which was not the case decades ago. Newer engines produce lower exhaust temperatures. It is worth noting that military fighter jets leave no contrails.

Modern jet engines do not leave contrails under most conditions. The conditions necessary occur rarely and do not change rapidly. It is beyond believable that the same atmospheric conditions which lead to the formation of contrails exist both on clear days and clear nights despite changes in relative humidity, temperature, and pressure.

I took this photo myself.


The plane leaving a ‘contrail’ is to the left. The one leaving a ‘persistent contrail’ or chemtrail is to the right. I watched them both for quite some time, almost from horizon to horizon. Despite relative changes in their altitudes and speeds, their trails did not change. The contrail remained short, while the chemtrail stretched from horizon to horizon (H2H.)

According to, these were the two planes I photographed:


Same planes, same engines, same altitudes, same atmospheric conditions, different contrails?!?

The claim is that contrails are caused by a jet engine heating the air causing condensation. When refering to H2H, this is not plausible. We would need to believe that the air which was heated stayed at the same temperature for the five minutes or so after the jet had passed. This is not possible, especially at altitudes of 30,000+ ft. This is why contrails from decades ago disappeared rather quickly. This is the same reason that your visible breath on a cold day dissipates within seconds.

Contrails come from engine exhaust. Why then can chemtrails be seen to come from between engines? Why would a three-engine plane leave only two contrails? Broken contrails which display large gaps are also problematic and difficult to explain. It could be said that a localized change in atmospheric conditions can lead to the broken nature of certain contrails, but then why would they remain visible after several minutes of drifting?

Some will claim that the trails are just fuel being dumped by airliners coming in for a landing. Two problems with this assumption: The first is that planes usually dump fuel at altitudes of around ten thousand feet, not metres; the second is that planes wouldn’t dump fuel over populated areas, and so would likely not be seen. Besides, dumping enough fuel to stretch from H2H would leave the tanks empty.

The main chemicals used in chemtrails are said to include Aluminum, Barium, Manganese, Silver Iodide, Strontium, Sulphur, and others. These additives also serve as nucleation points. There may be several uses for these different elements such as weather modification, albedo growth, communications, cloud-seeding, etc. There are many possible military as well as commercial applications. None of these substances can be considered beneficial or even inert.

Rosalind Peterson, to her credit, says that there is no proof of chemtrails and so would not attach her name to a law suit claiming that they exist. Her contention is about proof. She says, and rightly so, that she cannot prove that jets are releasing anything but jet fuel emissions. She also does not know who should be held accountable if it is happening. No credible studies have been done. All the evidence, at this point, is circumstantial. There is no funding for this type of research. But this does not mean it should not be done, nor does this mean chemtrailing is not happening. It simply means that it cannot be proven, yet. She has also stated that if solid evidence were to present itself, her calculus on the topic would change.

Now I can prove that the rocket programs in the United States are releasing trimethylaluminum, aluminum oxide, barium. I can prove the rocket programs in the United States are just coating us with toxic chemicals all the time. And these programs are listed at NASA, NOAA, the US Air Force, the US Navy, I mean there’s tests going on all the time. The US Navy CARE program is a prime example. So I can prove, I have so many documents I couldn’t even put them all on the internet, even if I tried, because there’s Pentagon reports, there’s all kind of reports dating back twenty, thirty years.

When it comes to proving what the jets are releasing, I don’t have the documentation, and I don’t have a single study, I don’t have a single solitary verifiable evidence that the jets are releasing anything except military releases of aluminum coated fiberglass by military aircraft.

-Rosalind Peterson

I agree with her. I am not claiming that this article proves the case one way or the other. I am simply saying that because of the evidence, more research needs to be done, and that a lack of proof does not provide contrary proof in and of itself. If this is taking place (?and based on the amount of research funding which has gone into this, why wouldn’t it be?) we should be aware. We need to guard against this once the legislation is put forth to initiate these plans, and we must be vigilant in case black projects have indeed proceeded with testing, as has been done secretly in the past, and which I personally believe is taking place now, even if it is on a relatively small scale. We must not ignore the possibility of this occurring. Certainly not all contrails are chemtrails, but even if a small percentage are hidden within, we all need to know about it, and the sooner, the better.

Much of the evidence brought forth by proponents of chemtrailing is not credible. There is, admittedly, much false information, much of which is combined into false claims by those who don’t have a good grasp of what constitutes evidence. This is clear and is prevalent in many other domains, as well. There can be no denial that there is some veritably bad investigative work which has been done in the name of the chemtrail theory. This, however, is not a valid argument against good evidence being presented. There is BS everywhere, from all sides, on all issues, but common sense and physical laws do exist to separate the wheat from the chaff, as it were. Pictures of spray nozzles mounted on planes, for example, are not proof. There are many good reasons to install spray nozzles on planes. These can range from vortex testing, crop spraying, smoke trails for airshows, missile defense systems, etc. They do not prove anything, nor do pictures of planes full of storage tanks. Just because others have presented these as proof, does not in itself prove that chemtrails are not real. Disney changing its backdrop to reflect modern skies does not prove this either, but what it does show is that a change in our skies is a recognizable phenomenon, and if the explanations for these changes are not plausible, we must continue to push for better answers. is a website run by Dane Wigington, who has also participated in the making of several videos which document the phenomenon (see below.) The site is filled with an enormous amount of data on the subject. Sites like these, while providing much good data, must be taken with a grain of salt. There are many issues which distract from the narrative such as climate change. There are those who disagree with Dane’s position on it, and so try to discredit all the evidence he presents. There is a rift between those who believe in AGW and chemtrails, those who believe in AGW but not chemtrails, those who believe in chemtrails but not AGW, and those who believe that AGW means that people are affecting climate, but on purpose, through the use of chemtrails (SRM et al.) and other means. None of this changes the evidence brought forth by air, water, and soil samples, whistle-blower testimony, photographic evidence, flight logs, insurance company research documents, military reports, scientific assessments, etc. We need to push for more complete studies.

Two points to ponder: 1) Why is it that planes which do not leave persistent contrails (PCTs) often can be seen flying through PCTs left by other planes (with identical engines and on the same flight path?) Would not the conditions which prevent the formation of PCTs in the former also lead to the dissipation of these in the latter? 2) In order for this not to be a ‘conspiracy theory’, it only needs to have happened once. Is there any doubt that such an oft-talked about topic would have been tested? It must also be noted that ‘one’ does not a statistically relevant study make.

Why In The World Are They Spraying (1:12:54)


Brains or Thumbs?

This article is not about texting.

Most anthropologists agree, at least, this is my understanding of that which I learned in school, that despite weak defenses, humans evolved to dominate the world because of big brains; more sophisticated might be a better term, or it might not.

Many animals have bigger brains than we.

It has been shown that animals are capable of language and that their math skills are far superior to ours. Dolphins and gorillas especially, but who knows how many animals can outwit us? IQ tests are said to be unfair because it is difficult to design them without some cultural bias. How different, then, must an animal’s IQ environment be? Street-smarts over book-smarts, one might say. Who’s to say how many species are more cleverer than us?

The problem, perhaps, isn’t one of intelligence but simply communication.

Some would say that the reason we took over was our thumbs (opposable digits.) Thumbs allowed for tool-making which quickly devolved into an arms-race that goes on to this day.

But, other animals have thumbs, too. So, why not them? Maybe they know love.

Maybe they had the good sense to know that ‘less is more.’ They traveled light. They had the power to defend themselves, but they lacked the desire to dominate, to take everything over. They saw that growth (1 of 8 – 09:17) would only lead to their eventual demise. They had the courage to face the world and its dangers, to do things the hard way, without seeking to insulate themselves more and more from the hardships which make life interesting. Are they foolish or wise? Asian cultures consider that animals kept in captivity are ultimately happy, like they won the lottery of life. The western view differs, thinking it cruel to deprive animals of their freedom (to face danger,) although western culture, strangely enough, reflects this way of thinking by isolating itself from the ‘dangerous’ natural world. Is it in our very essence to imprison ourselves and to weaken ourselves to the point of total dependence? Desmond Morris thinks so.

Instead of spending hours growing food we can eat, we now spend hours growing grass which we throw away. That’s a big red flag.

So maybe there is something else which allows us to dominate, another quality which permits us to lord over all we see, to the point of writing it into our gospels. Maybe it’s a moral quality or a primal arrogance, maybe we are just so physically weak that we have become a paranoid species. “Humanity No# 1 !” Discipline through fear seems pretty natural to humans on many levels.

As Gunnery Sergeant Hartman said, “It is a hard heart that kills.” I would distinguish that it is either a hard heart, or an empty stomach. Killing everyday to eat makes one a pacifist by nature. You don’t want to have to kill during your breaks, too. Killing is hard and it’s dangerous. You only do it when absolutely necessary. Does never killing anything besides a mosquito or a spider cause a buildup of whatever it is that got us here, in the first place? Does not killing result in us not being able to control the urge to kill? Do we need to kill? That would explain a lot. Maybe it isn’t the killing we need, maybe it’s the risk of being killed. That would explain extreme sports.

Maybe it was the combination of language, technology, and hubris that got us here. Maybe it was dumb luck. I wonder what animals must think of our stewardship. After seeing an interesting episode of the CBC’s “The Nature of Things,” I thought about [when a translation device is invented] what kind of questions animals will want to ask us. I also wonder about the answers we will have for them. I also wonder if the government will be involved to put the proper ‘spin’ on the first official inter-species communication. Government, industry, the military, and religion will probably all be represented and involved.

It might be good practice for when the aliens arrive. Come to think of it, it’s probably just hubris… and it’s all down-hill from here.

The Grass Farmers

People tend to build next to rivers in order to facilitate trade. The best agricultural land tends to be near rivers. For decades, suburban centres have been making the switch from zoning for agricultural land to zoning for residential. Some residents are even being fined for growing food on their property because some municipal bylaws prohibit it.

We’ve replaced our farmland with lawns. We’ve gone from planting seed for food to planting grass for nothing. We’ve gone from tending our crops to watering our lawns. We’ve gone from harvesting our own winter stores and declaring our independence to cutting the grass on one of our two days off just to keep up appearances. Tending a well-landscaped lawn, flower beds, shrubs and hedges, non-fruit-bearing trees, can be as much work as farming, but the yield is zero. In fact, it turns out to be an enormous time sink, much like entertainment, socializing, and child-rearing. It also turns out be be a circular exercise in recycling compost for no benefit outside the aesthetic.

As a response to this long-term trend, big-agri is developing GMO’s in order to feed the ever growing population. They’re actually making quite a big deal of it, too. There is such a shortage of good farmland, we now need to engineer our food like we should have engineered our spaces.

Even a fruit tree every so often would make an impact on the ever-growing problem of ‘food islands.’ Why should I drive past unused farmland to go buy synthetic vegetables trucked into the tiled mall?

So with the scare-mongering of over-population and the fear-porn of climate change, the two things we can do to increase global yield in food supplies and prevent starvation are: home gardens; and increased atmospheric levels of CO2, but both have fallen into dis-favour. (A solar panel on some rooftops here and there wouldn’t hurt either.) The point is that population is controlled by the availability or scarcity of resources, and it is not the majority poor who control that.

Is there a systemic problem looming? Sterility has needlessly become a very large industry. A very large and damaging industry. See Morgan Spurlock’s “The Truth Behind Toxins“. CNN doesn’t even mention that it is about chemicals, addressing only ‘food’ in the introduction. The common thread throughout most of the show is sterility and cancer. The show starts off with what is probably the most persistent danger, flame-retardants. An honest examination, dis-honestly portrayed. There are many earlier examples of journalism on the topic; most were not widely viewed.

Birth rates are down almost everywhere in the western-world, as cancer rates skyrocket. GMOs are said to have negative effects on fertility and also may ‘transform cells.’ Cleaning products and beauty products also, as it turns out.

Deranged monarchs re-incarnated as merciful diseases do not a sensible solution make.

With food independence comes a better use of our time, money, resources, and health. Perhaps, we should rather think about saving a buck than making one.


ZIKARIO is not a Brazilian Footballer

Is it snobbery, is it paranoia, is it legitimate fear, or is it all nonsense?

Seventeen athletes have, so far, declined the invitation to got o the Olympic Games in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil citing the danger of zika. Even the USOC has said it ‘would understand’.

The United States Olympic Committee told U.S. sports federations that athletes and staff concerned for their health over the Zika virus should consider not going to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games in August.

A few athletes from Britain have chosen to remain at home, as well. Greg Rutherford froze some sperm before leaving.

Australian athletes have been issued thicker, coated, zika-proof condoms, and will attend. (It’s Rio, after all; who’s kidding whom?)*

The Koreans have developed a zika-proof uniform. (Presumably, a larger version of the Australian solution.)

The Chinese athletes got some health advice.

Some have  gone very far out of their way to find a necessarily convoluted reason to slip the word ‘zika’ into their article, obviously trying to capitalize on the click-bait nature of the modern wwweb. It goes to show to what lengths some will go to in order to hype a story. Stories that are broadly good for the media raise all their boats and so see the most attention. It has precious little to do with what’s really going on. Besides, the press are not under any obligation to tell you everything. They don’t have the resources to cover everything, after all. The following article is a good example of click-bait.

Rio 2016 Olympics: Zika threat bugging Chinese shuttler Wang Yihan

“The threat of Zika at the Rio Olympics is on the mind of many athletes but few more so than China’s former badminton world champion Wang Yihan, who was attacked mercilessly by insects while competing in Indonesia last week.”

“They’re itchy,” she told Reuters…

Itchy?!? Is that all? That seems pretty weak. So what?

“I’m really not sure what kind of bugs they were. I don’t think they were mosquitoes. Maybe it was on the bed that I was sleeping on.”

Oh, bedbugs. Indonesian bedbugs, no less.

“I bought some cream for them, but they’re still itchy.”

Great setup for the zika scare story. By the way, ‘Zika’ is always capitalized.

When asked about zika:

“Yes, I think everyone’s been thinking about (Zika),” Wang said. “But obviously we’ve been told about how to be safe, wearing repellent and staying indoors and so on.”

She doesn’t seem too concerned, does she?

What’s with all the hype?

Thankfully there is some truth out there, if you read Portuguese.

“I don’t know where it comes from this information that children up to seven years would be the most susceptible, but it is not so,” he says. -trans. (Yandex)

There is a lot of evidence (and common sense) which indicate that zika should not be a significant threat, not to mention the fact that many tourists would be going to Rio, Olympics or no Olympics.

Anyhow, as Vox reports, August isn’t mosquito season in Rio.

“It’s going to be winter [during the Olympics], so the risk is going to be low in terms of mosquito transmission,” said Duane Gubler, a leading researcher on mosquito-borne diseases at Duke-NUS Medical School.

But if you like your fear even more ‘porny’, here’s a scary story from China, which rebuts the ‘winter’ claim. It hasn’t deterred Chinese athletes from attending, though. I suppose, when one grows up with dragons, a little mosquito isn’t really  that bad.

*There’s also a more disturbing plot affot. Remember those Australian condoms? Reuter’s, CNN, RT, the Guardian (and several other British papers) have all pushed the story, but it turns out to have been a marketing gimmick. Surprise, surprise, surprise.

Here’s the thing: all condoms protect against Zika infection when used correctly.

So is this a case of snobbery? Do certain athletes from certain countries not want to participate because of Brazil’s third-world status? It didn’t keep them out of the world cup, did it? Or is this a political move aimed at the scandalous behaviour of the government? Maybe it’s just good old-fashion fear-mongering. Should we all be afraid all the time? Or is this something else?

Are mosquitos (humanity’s natural vaccinators – they hold disease in check by exposing everyone’s immune system to very small doses of it) to be the new ‘boogey-man’? Whatever could be the reason? Is a vaccine in the works? You bet!

The discovery “could lead to the development of a universal vaccine” against both diseases, they hoped.

Much of South America suffers from pollution, economic strife (which causes shortages in medicine,) and food shortages, and  and the CDC states that microcephaly is caused primarily by toxins, infections, and malnutrition. Is it any wonder Brazil is a ‘hot-spot’ for zika, mosquitos or not?

A bit of advice for those going to Brazil: Don’t lose your pretty little heads over it.



Q: “Who Owns the Zika Virus?

A: “Of significance, the Zika virus is a commodity which can be purchased online from the ATCC-LGC for 599 euros, with royalties accruing to the Rockefeller Foundation.”
