Today's Aerosol Crimes. Discovery Channel "Chemtrail" Show Cancelled Tonight

had enough of the military industrial complex stealing our sunlight??!!! a group is forming locally to demand accountability and some answers as to what is going on and by who in our skies above our heads, in our lungs, to our trees, to our soil and water and the killing of our kids with chemical contrails. discovery channel show scheduled for tonight abruptly cancelled with no reference on their website. time to do something about this folks.
Were you one of those people gushing over the "georgeous day" today or was your answer to them, "yeah, what's left after the air force stole our sunlight."? Todays aerosol crimes were some of the most grisly I have ever seen. The spraying started yesterday and if anyone was out looking up at the full moon and the sky you would have seen the sky filled with contrails while the moon was covered by an extremely wide swath of the material. Through the night and into the morning and throughout the entire day our blue sky was transformed into a sickly white fake cloud cover. Contrails, contrails, contrails and contrails over contrails. Gruesome otherworldly configurations but it isn't just the visual insult. These contrails removes the sunlight and deprives us of vitamin D which results in more and more kids being diagnosed with ricketts and other vitamin d deprived conditions. Solar panels aren't working well, trees are dying and agriculture is being affected. our water supply is laden with the chemical aftermath of this continuous and ruthless spraying. There is a local group starting to demand accountability from our congressional representatives and our city council as well as the Mayor and any city official that is in a position to speak out about this. It has gone far enough. The Discovery Channel ran an "expose" last Feb. 22 called, "Chemical Contrails" The show was supposed to be aired tonight however it was cancelled and all references to the previous show and tonight's airing have been removed from the search engine and website of the Discovery Channel. How about that?? Watch for announcements about the first meeting, and please express your thoughts below. The war is on us. You wonder why "they" haven't figured out that it is affecting "them"? Because they are drunk with power and insane.

Chemtrail theory 05.Mar.2007 21:54

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The chemtrail theory is a group of conspiracy theories regarding allegedly unnatural vapor trails in the sky which hold "chemicals." Chemtrails are said form when certain aircraft (in certain places and at certain times), leave behind contrails thought to be laden with "chemicals." Contrails are formed by condensation of water vapor in the aircraft's exhausts.

Proponents of the theories maintain that some trails have an appearance and quality different from those of normal water-based contrails, i.e. that chemtrails are not consistent with the known properties of contrails. The general unifying factor is the generally conspiratorial belief that some kind of chemical or biological agent is being secretly released. The term "chemtrail" should not be confused with other forms of aerial dumping (e.g. crop dusting, cloud seeding or aerial firefighting). It specifically refers to systematic, high-altitude dumping of unknown substances for some undisclosed purpose resulting in the appearance of these supposed chemtrails.

Among the theories proposed for the purpose of the alleged "chemtrails" are: atmospheric and weather modification, biological warfare, mind control or occult purposes. They are also theorized to be part of a system to counter the effects of global warming, to create a cheap wireless communications network for the military, or to create a more sophisticated radar system (for both defensive and scientific application).[1]

[edit] Overview
Chemtrail advocates say these trails are often laid down in patterns, such as grids, Xs and crosshatches.
Chemtrail advocates say these trails are often laid down in patterns, such as grids, Xs and crosshatches.

The chemtrail theory apparently first achieved prominence in mid-to-late 1990s.[2][3] Chemtrails have been discussed on radio programs hosted by Art Bell and Jeff Rense with investigative journalist William Thomas who first reported on Chemtrails [1]. According to a FAQ[4] posted at Jeff Rense's website, "chemtrails (CTs) look like contrails initially, but are much thicker, extend across the sky and are often laid down in varying patterns of X's, tic-tac-toe grids, cross-hatched and parallel lines. Instead of quickly dissipating, chemtrails expand and drip feathers and mares' tails. In 30 minutes or less, they open into wispy formations which join together, forming a thin white veil or a 'fake cirrus-type cloud' that persists for hours."

Lacking proper scientific equipment, most chemtrail theorists can only speculate about the composition of the alleged chemtrail. However, one chemtrail theorist, Clifford E. Carnicom, operator of a website entitled "Aerosol Crimes and Cover-ups",[5] claims to have analyzed ground-level air samples following chemtrail events. It is not clear what his experience or expertise in chemical analysis is, but he carefully detailed the methods and procedures he used. He claims to have found airborne aluminum, barium, calcium, magnesium and titanium, and "microscopic fibers" in areas supposedly exposed to chemtrails.[6]

Dr. Leonard Horowitz, a graduate of Tufts University and former faculty member at Tufts and Harvard University,[2] discusses chemtrails in his 2001 book Death in the Air: Globalism, Terrorism & Toxic Warfare.

"Chemtrails" are mentioned in House Bill HR 2977,[7] the Space Preservation Act of 2001, introduced by Congressman Dennis Kucinich, where it appears as one of a list of "exotic weapons system[s]" to be banned under the bill. Proponents of the reality of chemtrails point to this as official acknowledgment of the possibility, at least, of such weapons systems. The reference to Chemtrails was omitted from the version of the bill re-introduced by Kucinich in 2002 as HR 3616[8] or in 2003 as HR 3657.[9]

An article entitled "The Chemtrail Smoking Gun"[10] by Bruce Conway, suggested that chemtrails represent the implementation of technologies suggested in a 1992 National Academy of Science study, Policy Implications of Greenhouse Warming;[11] specifically, that chemtrails are part of a secret project intended to mitigate global warming. Some science has corroborated this phenomenon as global dimming.

The Las Vegas Tribune, a free weekly broadsheet, ran an article on September 9, 2005, entitled "Chemtrails - Coming Out Of The Closet?",[12] wherein that publication's managing editor, Marcus K. Dalton, stated that United States Air Force scientists working at Wright-Patterson Air Force base in Dayton, told Columbus Alive[13] - a weekly entertainment magazine - that they had been conducting two aerial spraying experiments: "one involved aluminum oxide spraying related to global warming and the other involved barium stearate and had to do with high-tech military communications."[14] Dalton basically rehashes William Thomas's article in Convergence Weekly,[15] though some new information is presented.

[edit] Skeptical response

Skeptical groups, including the Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal, assert that contrails normally exhibit a wide variation in appearance and that the descriptions and photographs of "chemtrails" are perfectly consistent with those of ordinary contrails ([16][17]). They also voice various objections to the idea of chemtrails:

* Depending on what the alleged purpose of the chemtrail spraying would be, spray released above 30,000 feet is likely to be highly unpredictably dispersed due to high-altitude winds. ([18]).

* How do aircraft accused of depositing "chemtrails" manage to pass inspection without the deception being discovered?
* Assuming drugging the population is the purpose, the people behind the conspiracy would breathe the same air the population breathes, so any harm inflicted on the population would also be inflicted on those in charge of the conspiracy, unless they were made immune through vaccination.
* Official and governmental bodies have consistently denied the existence of such spraying[19][20]

In addition, condensation trails behind aircraft have displayed characteristics attributed to "chemtrails" since the 1930s development of high-altitude planes. As these vapor trails are created in the exhausts from engines, they contain not only hot gases but also microscopic droplets of oil and every other component of the fuel, including traces of lead (in fuel used by piston engines), which can break light into various colors. This phenomenon is observed in sundogs, which have been seen throughout recorded history.

Airplanes occasionally jettison fuel during flight, and sometimes even jettison toilet waste. There has been little outcry about these occurrences, however.

NASA has admitted discharging trimethylaluminum (TMA) into the air above the Atlantic Ocean, as part of a 2003 project to study the ionosphere, creating linear man-made clouds which glowed in the night sky before drifting and dispersing.[21]

Often during airshows, colored smoke trails can be seen. These trails are generated by dyed paraffin color discharge cartridge at the exhaust of the engine.

Fertilizers and pesticides are sprayed over large fields from low flying aircraft. In the Vietnam War, the defoliant Agent Orange was sprayed in order to remove the leaves from the trees.

In the War on Drugs, as part of Plan Colombia, the United States has been spraying the herbicide Roundup and Roundup Ultra over Colombian coca fields.[22][23]

Chemtrail Toxicity 27.Jun.2007 07:49

Phoebe Crow

Well yes, I am one of "those" who have noticed the attack of whatever is lining up over the skies here in Southeast Portland. I am relieved that someone else witnessed, with the same alarm I felt, the criss cross clouds over Febuary 07's full moon. These attacks are causing physical symptoms which appear to change with whatever toxin is contained in the trails. Some is neurological, some causing increasing joint/bone pain, some bring sudden "bone chilling" cold with no temperature change in my home. Numerous people describe the "flu", and many report serious respiratory symptoms. The fact that these symptoms are intermittant through the course of a day, relating to activity of these damn planes, is confounding to me. Most people just say their allergies are "bad this year". Did they have allergies all winter? The OHSU scientist who responded to the request for an explaination of the increase of allergies as the increase of newcomers to the area not used to the allergens around here is, at least, ludicrous. Everyone is allergic to poison! AS Bob Dylan said, "you don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows"; just look up into a clear blue sky as the lines form, from South to North incidentally. One day in March this year it felt as though there was not enough oxygen after several days of activity. This was accompanied by a solvent like smell. I called DEQ
. About two weeks later I received a phone call from a DEQ person to follow up. Seems as though there were numerous complaints from this area. The DEQ said they were focussing on a business around NE 60th and Glisan as the source. I asked the guy what was up with the chemtrails. He naturally discounted any validity with the standard contrail explanation. In my 60 years I have seen contrails. These aren't them, and I told him so. He admitted that Canada was spraying ozone in grid patterns in attempt to fix, but went on to say the USA would never do that because "it's so toxic". I then proceed to tell Dan about, what I described as a tic tac toe pattern (sounds like a grid pattern to me) over the sky that I witnessed while standing in the Hawthorne Fred Meyer parking lot last fall. His voice changed, and he said "I wish you had a picture of that" I told him to look up!!!! Oddly enough, I received a phone call just last week from Dan letting me know he was in my neighborhood, still investigating the incident I reported in March. The fact is this: Humans and animals of all variety are becoming ill (some, extremely ill) as a result of whatever these clouds contain...I am not the only one. So it's worse then simply vitamin D deficiency from lack of sunlight. Although it does appear that the result, if not the INTENT, is a definate filter on sunlight. Look up people, then ask questions.
