I have been writing articles for various newspapers and newsletters for more than 40 years on the subject of 'WEATHER WARFARE,' environmental modification (EnMod) weaponry programs.
My first article concerned 'Agent Orange' and 'Project Popeye' during the Vietnam War. These military operations, carried out by helicopters and U.S. Air Force jets, were intended to extend the annual monsoon season over the 'Ho Chi Minn Trail' turning it into a muddy mess. But, the Vietnamese soldiers were used to swampy roads. It had little effect on them, but our soldiers were "bogged down in the quadmires" caused by repeated cloud-seeding with silver iodide crystals.
Our use of Agent Orange was partially successful in defoliating the Trail, but these harmful chemicals left behind toxic materials (dioxins) that later caused major health problems for both the Vietnamese and U.S. soldiers and civilians.
Cloud-seeding has been going on for nearly a century. In 1915, Charles Hatfield supposedly caused a severe flood that destroyed much of downtown San Diego with its cloudbursts of epic proportions.
The British may have almost wiped out London in 1952 with their heavy cloud-seeding experiments for military purposes. As much rain fell in less than 8 hours than would normally fall in an entire month. Lowland flooding was widespread. The Thames River went over its banks in many locations.
The Chinese, in August of 2008, used 37,000 people to seed clouds aiming for a dry Olympics. Hundreds of teams used anti-aircraft guns to shoot shells of silver iodide into approaching cloud masses. Plus, the Beijing Weather Modification Office used more than 30 aircraft, 4,000 rocket launchers and at least 7,000 artillery pieces to make the rains fall before reaching the new National Stadium where the games were held. The Chinese claimed that they were quite successful in their efforts. It was smoggy at times during the Olympics of 2008, but mostly dry.
The Chinese also claim that all of their weather modification programs, including intense cloud-seeding efforts, are entirely peaceful in nature for the benefit of their own people.
Since the worst drought in more than a century in Russia a couple of years ago that prompted the Russians to suspend wheat exports driving prices well above $10 a bushel here in the U.S., the Russians have stepped-up cloud-seeding operations.
In the past five years since 2007, billionaire Bill Gates has spent at least $5 million on geoengineering research and cloud-seeding in Africa alone due to severe shortages of clean water and food. But, the droughts are 'worse than ever.'
Raytheon, a private defense contractor, is working with Gates and others "to reduce global warming" through stratospheric seeding with aluminum oxide particles, those nasty 'CHEMTRAILS' that we frequently see in our skies. They want to create what they call "smart clouds" through nonotechnology.
But, what worries this climatologist is the 'chaff pollution' that this high-altitude spraying has produced during the past several years.
Geoengineers and climate scientists say that we must cool off this planet to "prevent a horrible disaster from runaway global warming." They don't seem to care about our health, only their wealth. And, they don't have our permission to carry out these risky experiments.
Among the substances found to be in recent laboratory soils in central Iowa were several that should simply not be there: 6 bacteria, including anthrax and pneumonia, 9 chemicals, including acetylcholine chloride, 26 heavy metals including arsenic, gold, lead, mercury, silver, uranium and zinc, 4 molds and fungi, 7 viruses, 2 cancers, 2 vaccines and 2 sedatives.
Over the last several months, many senators and congressmen have received a significant increase in chemtrail-related calls and letters. Most report a dramatic increase in chemtrail 'spraying' activity in their areas. Some are reporting the development of chronic flu-like symptoms, chronic fatigue and body aches that they have never before experienced. My wife Sharon, normally very healthy, is currently experiencing all of these symptoms as our many others in the region. Are these normal spring allergies? I think not.
Also, just this week, an airline pilot called to tell me, "Cliff, we pilots see these jet tankers dumping chemtrails almost every day. We're told that it's 'a priority military project.'"
While I'm on the subject of 'Chemtrails,' farmers in some parts of the Midwest have been forced to spend $40 or more per acre on lime applications to combat the surprisingly high amounts of aluminum oxide in their soils. Confirming this on Friday, according our Kansas correspondent, Ed Petrowsky, the well-respected commodity advisory service, 'Crop Quest,' reported that aluminum levels across most of the Midwest have 'DOUBLED' in the past 3-5 years. They also added, that it must have come from the air. It didn't leach up from the ground. So, I guess that two and two still makes four. Also on Friday, Greg Koch of Coeur d'Alene, informed me that there was a recent Chemtrail and Geoengineering Symposium held on the island of Maui on April 27 to discuss the lack of normal plant growth on the island.
The geoengineers are 'playing with fire,' and we're 'getting burned.'
Besides having to deal with this chemtrail mess, I'm becoming increasingly concerned with the current "'MAD RACE' TO OWN THE WEATHER BY 2025 OR SOONER" by many governments and their military leaders, including the U.S. and our NATO allies.
As I've said many times lately, the nation or nations that learn to 'harness the weather' will eventually 'RULE THE WORLD WITH AN IRON HAND.'
They will be able to create all sorts of weather disasters, maybe even a NEW LITTLE ICE AGE, especially if we see a couple of major volcanic eruptions coinciding with their global cooling efforts.
Remember, the Bible, in the books of Joel, Isaiah and Revelation, talks about the 'sun being darkened,' which would result in much colder temperatures around the world. Are these foolish geoengineers possibly hastening their own demise? In my opinion, "dimmed minds" may lead to a "dimmed sun."
I'd rather have global warming anyday than a new bitter ice age. Also remember, we haven't had a hotter than normal summer season since 2006 in North Idaho.
The WEATHER could turn out to be both GOD's and MANKIND's 'ULTIMATE WEAPON.'
Next week, Randy Mann will give us an update on the current sea-surface temperatures and solar patterns, plus new charts.
NORTH IDAHO WEATHER REVIEW AND LONG-RANGE OUTLOOKS
Every month thus far in 2012 has been much wetter than usual including April, which had almost exactly double the normal precipitation since 1895 of 1.77 inches at a whopping 3.52 inches.
The snowfall total in April was 3.3 inches, well above the monthly normal of just 0.7 inches. This snow pushed our 2011-12 seasonal total to 83.4 inches, nearly 14 inches above normal and exactly 20 inches more than I predicted back in December of 63.4 inches.
After a cool, damp and windy start to the month of May, I'm still looking for some sunny and warmer weather to arrive this week as high pressure moves into the region. We've had 'enough showers' and there are plenty of 'May flowers' in Camelot despite the recent frosts.
The rest of the spring of 2012 should see a bit warmer than normal temperatures, providing the geoengineers don't 'dim us too much,' and slightly less than normal precipitation in the region.
The summer season still looks warmer and drier than usual for the first time since 2006 with at least 22-25 'Sholeh Days' at or above 90 degrees. Most of the shower activity will stay in the mountains to the east of us.
The annual 2012 NORTH IDAHO FAIR AND RODEO should have GREAT WEATHER like last year this late August.
