About a week ago, a concerned reader of my column named Bob (no last name given) dropped off a DVD entitled, "What in the World are They Spraying?" It was produced by G. Edward Griffin and narrated by journalist Michael J. Murphy.

I, of course, was suspicious at first of this Truth Media tape, but actually watched it twice and took 14 pages of notes. The evidence was clear.

This DVD claims that many areas of the U.S., Canada, Europe and elsewhere are being sprayed almost on a daily basis by 'chemtrails' of toxic heavy metals, particularly aluminum. These are not the normal quickly dispersed jet 'contrails' as often seen.

These chemtrails are composed of tiny glass fibers coated with light-reflective aluminum that are intended to bounce many of the sun's rays back into space with the express purpose of cooling the planet. The chemtrails often cover the sky from horizon to horizon.

Aluminum has four times the volumetric capacity of sulfur dioxide particles. It's very inexpensive and the coagulation rate is extremely low.

David Keith, a well-known geoengineer from the University of Calgary, said recently in a San Diego Climate Seminar, "The U.S. and many NATO countries are spraying in order to save the planet from runaway global warming."

It is the opinion of this climatologist that these reckless climate scientists, their greedy corporate sponsors and money-hungry geoengineers are PLAYING GOD. They are spending precious taxpayer dollars on these risky schemes without our permission or congressional approval for the most part. Follow the money and you'll always find the culprits.

What they are doing is VERY DANGEROUS! Thus far, they haven't seen success. Our weather is worse than ever. Just look at all the tornadoes, the massive floods, the choking droughts, the 'rare' Hawaii hailstorm last month and this month's worst lightning storm in recorded history in San Francisco.

When asked about the possible harmful effects of dumping 10 MILLION MEGATONS of aluminum and other heavy metals on an unsuspecting population, the evasive Mr. Keith said this in a futile attempt to be humorous;

"We don't know yet about any harmful side effects. We're taking our chances for possible good results. One might say that we're 'free-riding' on the future health of our grandkids." (Well, Mr. Keith, the joke is apparently on these kids!)

As former State Senator from Arizona, Karen Johnson, says on the tape, "This toxic spraying in the stratosphere eventually precipitates aluminum and other heavy metals on our trees, plants, animals, humans and our critical water supplies."

She at least partially blames the skyrocketing cases of Alzheimers, dementia and strokes on the extremely elevated levels of cadmium, mercury and aluminum in recent blood, urine and hair samples of older adults.

Senator Johnson also points out that even young children have had their hair samples showing extremely elevated levels of aluminum and other toxic heavy metals that could possibly be the cause of rapidly increasing autism.

Aluminum in high concentrations can clog arteries. It is likewise known to be a carcinogen. It has a 'half life' of decades. (My wife quit using aluminum cookware and other utensils many years ago due to the added risks to our health.)

Johnson also points out that "millions of trees are dying in the Far West from beetle infestations and high heavy metal concentrations that are "off the charts."

Trees that contain high levels of aluminum literally "explode like Roman candles" during forest fires which have consumed millions of acres of the Far West in recent years.

Speaking of the Far West, don't drink the snowmelt runoff water from once pristine Mt. Shasta. It's highly contaminated by heavy metals, especially aluminum.

According to water and solar expert, Dave Wigington, "there is a mountain of toxic material in the Shasta area resulting from the high altitude spraying and the resulting chemtrails and artificial cloud layers that precipitate heavy metals daily."

Recent water samples have shown levels of aluminum as high as 61,000 parts per billion compared with the normal of just 1,000 parts per billion. That's 61 times more aluminum than the government allows for safe drinking! And, that doesn't count the 83 parts per billion of toxic barium or the 383 parts per billion of strontium. (Remember the Strontium 90 scare of the 1950s in our milk supposedly caused by China?)

Francis Mangels, a Lake Shasta biologist, claims that the Ph factors of soil samples taken recently in his part of the country have "skyrocketed to more than 10 times the normal of 5.5 to 5.6!"

His ponds are only fed by rainwater, no springs. They are 'dangerously polluted' by heavy metals, especially aluminum. Most of the fish and insects have died.

Mangels added, "We should remember that our government bombarded North Vietnam 40 years ago with Agent Orange and other very toxic chemicals. Now, they're experimenting on us." (Their eventual goal is apparently 'to own the weather,' in my opinion.)

It's been often said that "the nation that controls the weather will rule the world." The 'race is on,' folks.

Next week, in Part II, we'll cover the topic of GLOBAL WEATHER WARFARE that looms in the coming decades.


Our long-predicted pattern of 'sun and showers' during the month of April has developed precisely on schedule.

The 2012 water season still looks great with above-normal snowpacks remaining above 4,500 feet in the mountains and above-normal precipitation continuing in the lowlands.

Our Coeur d'Alene 2011-12 seasonal snowfall probably will end at the current 83.4 inches, exactly 20 inches more than what I predicted last December for our region thanks to a very snowy late January through early April period across North Idaho.

Precipitation through mid June should be near or even a bit less than normal in our part of the country. Temperatures overall will be a tad warmer than usual thanks to the new milder 'La Nada,' the in-between El Nino and La Nina, sea-surface temperature event in the waters of the Pacific Ocean which may soon become a new El Nino, according to our sea-surface expert, Randy Mann.

The summer of 2012 still looks warm and dry with only scattered thunderstorms, mainly over the mountains.

SPECIAL NOTE: Happy 96th birthday wishes to our high school principal, Sterling MacFarlane of Coeur d'Alene.

    KIDS...Cliff was referring to the content of the DVD!
    It's the same as you guys extolling the virtues of Obama's pseudo-Scientific BS!

    Be concerned, but don't worry too much about the Sorcerer's Apprentice and his bag of magic aerial tricks. Far more disconcerting is the product being sprayed in your back yard!

    Now that Monsanto's patent has expired on Glyphosate-POEA formula RoundUp, the virtues of a multitude of products is being thrust upon farmers worldwide to limit the need for weeding actions. Those products are sterilizing the soil, adding a toxic mix to the air you breathe, and killing the bees necessary for pollination.

    Giggle all you want, but you have deemed a convenient target in the quest for a sustainable world population of less than 500,000,000.

    The weather is sunny and warm. I hardly detect a wind. My plum and cherry trees are in full bloom. WHERE ARE THE BEES???

    You should be greatly alarmed at what is occurring worldwide. The assault upon humanity is intense.
    AND...Monsanto has you convinced that the products are harmless once dry. No need to worry about the food you eat either.

    My failing health is a testament to the adverse impact of RoundUp-style products on humans.

    Thanks for WAKING UP to this truth... One word of warning from a veteran on this subject... Know nothing idiots who think they know-it -all will tell you you are crazy or on drugs... do NOT get dissuaded... you are among the second or third wave of people just catching on to this hard to believe truth... the main stream (lame stream) media has a black out on this subject, and there is more to the subject of weather modification than just stratospheric aerosol geoengineering (chemtrails), Solar Radiation Management (SRM), which if you think about it, how would sending up a whole lot more plains help with the problem extra CO2 emissions causes? Makes no sense...NO, the truth is there are MANY reasons for weather mod, not only to control the weather, but deliver different bacteria, chemicals, whatever to the population (I know 2 people who got Morgellons from a web-like material that fell out after "FUNNY" rain)... also major use in the Star Wars program to help them with radar... also a tool against the people to mess with crops so that more hardships will force the people to accept the New World Order... NOT a conspiracy- anyone who says it is is IGNORANT of the FACTS (I have pages of nothing but quotes that PROVE this)... Monsanto's seeds are aluminum resistant for a REASON... He who controls the food, controls the weather... The rabbit hole only gets deeper... it gets complicated at first, but then it becomes real clear as you follow the money, and rid yourself of the illusion that your government cares about you- HA!!! They put fluoride (rat poison) in our water; spray the gulf coast with corexit (STILL!); and the world with Aluminum, barium, strontium (in chemtrails); give our soldiers depleted uranium weapons (which mess them up and destroys the gene pool of those they came to 'save'); put cancer causing aspartame in EVERYTHING, force us to eat GMOs, remove our constitutional rights (NDAA); and have energy weapons that cause earthquakes and volcanos to erupt (HAARP)... So the guy that says your crazy, better wake up before his sheep sails into the slaughtering block... There is a lot of work to be done and many of us have awoken to the not so pretty side of REALITY...

    “In recent years there has been a decline in the support for weather modification research, and a tendency to move directly into operational projects.”

    ~World Meteorological Organization, 2007

    "There are some reports, for example, that some countries have been trying to construct something like an Ebola Virus, and that would be a very dangerous phenomenon, to say the least. Alvin Toeffler has written about this in terms of some scientists in their laboratories trying to devise certain types of pathogens that would be ethnic specific so that they could just eliminate certain ethnic groups and races; and others are designing some sort of engineering, some sort of insects that can destroy specific crops. Others are engaging even in an eco- type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves.So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations. It’s real, and that’s the reason why we have to intensify our efforts, and that’s why this is so important."

    Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen, April 28, 1997, Testimony before Congressional Committee That was an excuse for funding... you better believe the largest industrial military complex in the world not only has access to this technology, but full intention and will to use it!

    I lived in CDA for six years and moved back to Canada in 1999. In 1998 my friend and I began to take note of all the new white trails being sprayed by the white jets, forming x's in the skies as well as straight across patterns. Then, the blue skies would become murky and overcast. At the time, we wondered, What are they spraying up there? When I moved to Canada, I thought perhaps our skies would be blue skies, as there is not much pollution where I live now. However, early one morning, as I sat on my front porch, I saw the now familiar white jets come over the mountain across the street and begin spraying. And this went on until all the blue skies were filled with chemtrails. I was shocked. Now, we have all been being poisoned with heavy metal particulates, and other nasties for a decade and a half. Our environment is full of these metals as are we. The dvd that Cliff Harris watched is one of the best made on this crime against us all. He is courageous to report the truth to mainstream, and how fortunate the local paper is not so narrow minded as to not publish his writings. I look forward to seeing the truth revealed in many other publications when the masses wake up to this situation, which is happening rapidly as our environments are being poisoned and chest and lung disease is rampant, as is asthma etc.The truth comes to light eventually. Thank you Cliff for taking a stand!

    When someone like Cliff Harris has the guts to speak about something that is controversial, people should at least give him credit for risking his reputation. I have researched Chemtrails for several years now, and I was skeptical at first, but I am afraid its true. Go online and do your own research before you call someone names. Why is it so hard to believe our government would do something harmful to us? You think it has not been done before? See,
    for experiments going back to the 1930's. For health effects on what the spray is doing to you over time see, We need to stick together on this and not blame the messenger.

    I haven't seen that much concentrated paranoia and goofball silliness since the last time the John Birch Society left a flier on my windshield.

    What's next? Fluoride in the water, black helicopters coming to take our guns, attacks by the space aliens who have been hiding in the hollow earth?

    Cliff Harris has been giving us his so-called "CLIMATOLOGIC" expertise for some time now and much of it has been pure baloney; i.e. GLOBAL COOLING. This untrained self proclaimed expert has now gone over the cliff with his aluminum story. Even elementary school students would know that none of it is true. John Huckabay's retort in Saturday's Press should be mandatory reading for all. Mr. Harris should stick to telling us stories about his friend Charlie at the north pole who sees the glaciers rapidly expanding (unlike the real weather scientists), ripening his vegetables and minding the yardstick and pail that he uses every few hours at his station on PLAYER DRIVE to measure rain and snowfall. Pathetic.

    Wow! Cliff, it’s none of my business, but have you either started using or stopped using some sort of prescription medications, or could it be that Marty Fortier is editing your column? What should we expect next Monday, the Bigfoot mystery solved?

    fruit fuzz.. you know the hair like substance on peaches and kiwi's and other fruits. the pharmaceutical industry does not want you to know that is what causes allergys. they will tell you its from pollen and spores from trees but that is to keep you in the dark so you will continue to purchace there pills and medications to combat the pollen and trees yet you continue to purchace peaches and kiwis only making you buy more and more allergy medicines. i am finalizing edditing of a video that i will publish to the internet to back up all i have said here i am just looking for the right ominous music to go with it. you will not find any facts or science to back up any of these claims yet i know them to all be very very true. also, and this is a fact and you can ask any scientist and they will 100% agree with me.. absoultly every person on this planet that has eatten a carrot, has died. go ahead.. google it.. its totaly true.

    sporeman this is not some clandestine "chemtrail" operation, it is Stratospheric Geoengineering and I'm sorry if it's too much for you to read, but it won't be advertised on Fox or CNN.

    Heres another one for you "Weather as a Force Multiplier, Owning the Weather by 2025" a research paper presented to the Air Force:

    Weather manipulation and "geonengineering" are not new ideas. The global governance, you can google that too in case you want to throw more ignorant conspiracy labels around...

    And quite honestly, I don't blame you for canceling your subscription to this rag.

    My apologies (for my dead brain cells). By all means, go ahead and follow the sage advice of all those 1st graders. I'm sure everything will turn out fine.

    GrnEydGuy.. since you pretty much cut and pasted there qualifacations directly from there website i will cut and paste somthing that i found on the internet also.. spokesman review..Harris is not a trained scientist – he studied insurance law in college – but he has one of the most extensive collections of private weather records in the Northwest, and he's built a successful business off his long-range weather predictions. i think he does a wonderfull job of long range prediction and over the years i have lived here hes pretty much right down to the last snowflake correct. i did not mean to disparage him by calling him a so called weather person, if it was read that way i apologise. my gripe is with the chemtrail story. there is absolutly no facts to support chemtrails being a real thing and until a "smoking plane" as it wer is found i will not belive crazy conspircy theorys from the internet or anywhere else. this is my opinion and if you or anyone else disagrees i dont have a problem with it. i do enjoy a beer every now and again and may in fact have a dead brain cell or 3 but i dont really think calling people names proves or helps at all.. ty p.s. im still canceling the paper.

    @sporeman & Aseteroidboy ... I'll take your bait.

    Cliff Harris is a world renowned climatologist who has been quoted in USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, New York Times, The Wall Street Digest, Farm Journal, Top Producer, Successful Farming, Futures Magazine, The Boston Globe and many other publications.

    But this article isn't about a Man is it?

    It's about the facts as anyone with a 1st grade education can determine for themselves. Geoengineering is not some closet project, nor is it a conspiracy theory as many zombie supporters of the ruling elite would have you believe...

    Simply think for yourself and use your own judgements and don't let Cliff Harris or some mudslinging dis-info agents on the CDA Press website deter you from discovering the truth.

    I've lived in this area for 35 years. I remember when I could see the mountains on the horizon... now here's a challenge for all of you: what do you see on the horizon, is it crystal clear mountains or smokey haze?

    I'm wondering if some people can even see past the dead brain cells crusted up behind their eyes.

    My wife and I will also be cancelling our daily subscription. Mr. Harris is not a climatologist (just as Randy Mann is not a meteorologist). You would think the local paper would try to give our region a positive view and not further the stereotype that we are a bunch of illiterate nazi hicks. We can't support the Press if you can't support us.

    Last night, a friend of mine gave me a phone call, encouraging me to read the article "Those aren't just raindrops falling on our heads, part 1", by Cliff Harris. Myself, being a person who spends many hours "researching", I do highly commend Mr. Harris for his story on the subject of "Chemtrails". For several years, one of the subjects I have studied on, is "Chemtrals", and find only "TRUTH" being shared by Mr. Harris, in this article. I want to personally "thank" Mr. Harris for having the "courage" to write on this subject, and I, most definitely, look forward to "part 2" of his writing on this subject. Mr. Harris, may God richly bless you!

    i will be canceling my daily delivery of the paper because of this article. this so called WEATHER person drags down the ENTIRE newspaper to the point i CANNOT trust ANYTHING else printed on your pages. sorry for the CAPS but this is the way the so called REPORT was printed in your newspaper. looks STUPID here, looks even WORSE in a newspaper.
