Those aren't just 'raindrops falling on our heads' (Part I)

Weather Gems

Print Article

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.
