Heads Up! The Shocking Dangers of Chemtrails

By Dan Eden and Diane Small

Many of us have looked up to the sky and seen something a bit unusual these days: fat and thin white puffs in strange patterns. They kind of look like contrails, the vapour given off my planes. But they last much longer, no matter what the weather conditions. And they spread out, lingering for hours. And they appear odd patterns….

A growing number of people now believe these are not, in fact, contrails; rather, they’re “chemtrails.” Contrails are trails of condensation that can be seen in the sky when a jet airplane is traveling at above 30,000 feet altitude, where the air is much thinner and much colder. Outside temperatures can dip to minus 60 F and the air is often full of minute ice crystals that just hang there, invisible. When these ice crystals get sucked into a hot jet engine they turn into a gas, like steam, and can be seen as puffy white cloud-like lines that follow behind the jets. They usually dissipate quickly as the air cools and the moisture once again returns to form tiny ice crystals.

Chemtrails, on the other hand, are something altogether different. First of all, they are found at much lower altitudes. Secondly, they linger in the sky–sometimes for several hours, covering the whole sky, turning it from a clear blue to a fuzzy silver. They tend to exhibit a slight rainbow spectrum if lit just right from the sun (notice that there seem to be a lot more rainbows these days?), and are laid out in strange patterns that wouldn’t make sense if they were from planes.

Initially, it was thought that a dramatic increase in air transportation was leading to more and different kinds of  contrails in the sky, but increasing evidence is pointing to something far more worrying: a deliberate attempt to introduce cloud-like formations in the atmosphere. But why?

Chemtrails are real…and they’re dangerous

It seems so outrageous to claim that airline companies and governments are poisoning our air with chemicals that anyone who does so is pretty much instantly labelled a ‘conspiracy theorist’. But journalists and scientists have been sounding the alarm bells for almost 30 years.

For example, in 1997,  journalist William Thomas wrote about chemtrails, and possibly coined the phrase then too. He noted that aircraft were making white lines and flying in unusual ways — often in zigzag patterns or making multiple parallel lines of white trails that tended to expand and eventually cover the sky with a canopy of clouds. He believed this was a form of geoengineering, designed to mask the true extent of climate change, or to help mitigate its effects.

Of course NASA, the NOAA and the military have denied any knowledge or involvement of this phenomenon. But independent scientific researchers, convinced that something was going on, have tested groundwater and found that in recent decades,  heavy metal levels have been unusually high throughout Europe and North America; in fact they’re so high in some places they are are changing the pH levels of the soil and are killing off animals and plants. Yet still, the governments of all countries blame other sources, such as coal energy stations (even in countries like France, which rely mainly on nuclear energy) and ridicule the idea that there is anything unusual happening in the skies.

Lab tests show chemtrails contain aluminum…and more

In 2008, water samples around California’s Lake Shasta and the Pit River Arm tributary were tested in a State Certified Lab following weeks of fly-overs and chemtrails. The results of the water samples were astounding: they showed 4,610,000 ugl (ugl=ppb or parts per billion), over 4,610 times the maximum contaminant level for aluminum in drinking water for the State of California. In addition, a snow pack sample taken from Mt. Shasta tested at 61,100 ug/L or 61 times the maximum contaminant level. At another pond in the area, filled with filtered water confirmed to contain “0” aluminum, test revealed 375 times the maximum contaminant level after only 18 months exposure to the aerial spraying.

The usually pristine snow pack from the Ski Bowl area of Mt. Shasta showed 61,000 parts per million of aluminum. But that’s not all: integrated medical doctors who test people for heavy metals as part of their routines for detoxification and wellness regimes in European spas are finding that virtually all European and American clients tested are very high in aluminium…whilst clients from Russia and Arabia are not.

Moreover, in areas with heavy spraying, such as the UK, rates of dementia and Alzheimer’s, both connected to aluminium poisoning, are so high that dementia is now Britain’s number one killer disease, even more so than heart diseases and cancer. Even bees have been suffering the effects: some experts blame aluminium, a key component of chemtrails, for their declining numbers.

Why spray? Secrets revealed…

At first the logic of putting fine particles of aluminum in the atmosphere seems bizarre. Why would anyone do this? But a little research reveals that this plan was considered necessary many decades ago. In fact, the idea of spraying aluminum oxide from jet aircraft was patented by Hughes Aircraft in 1990 (see patent #5003186, below). The plan proposed “to seed the metallic particles was to add the tiny particles to the fuel of jet airliners, so that the particles would be emitted from the jet engine exhaust while the airliner was at its cruising altitude.” This was ostensibly to help curb ‘global warming.’

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION: Patent #5003186A method is disclosed for reducing atmospheric warming due to the greenhouse effect resulting from a greenhouse gases layer. The method comprises the step of seeding the greenhouse gas layer with a quantity of tiny particles of materials characterized by wavelength-dependent emissivity or reflectivity, in that said materials have high emissivities in the visible and far infrared wavelength regions and low emissivity in the near infrared wavelength region. Such materials can include the class of materials known as Welsbach materials. The oxides of metal, e.g., aluminum oxide, are also suitable for the purpose. The greenhouse gases layer typically extends between about seven and thirteen kilometers above the earth’s surface. The seeding of the stratosphere occurs within this layer. The particles suspended in the stratosphere as a result of the seeding provide a mechanism for converting the blackbody radiation emitted by the earth at near infrared wavelengths into radiation in the visible and far infrared wavelength so that this heat energy may be reradiated out into space, thereby reducing the global warming due to the greenhouse effect.”

But wait! There’s more.



A more sinister side

You would think that the government would be happy to announce that they had a plan to help reduce global warming. If spraying powdered aluminum oxide from jetliners would stave off the dire predictions of violent storms, melting ice caps and rapidly rising ocean, most people would likely have applauded their attempts. There would have been no need for secrecy and denying what people have been seeing in the skies over their communities, right?

But there could be another reason for these chemtrails.

It was the late Edward Teller, a member of the Manhattan Project and father of the Hydrogen Bomb, co-founder and director of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, who proposed this geo-engineering technique together with Roderick Hyde and Lowell Wood. He also designed a variety of mixtures according to the specific tasks they have to perform, among which figure the deployment of “electrically-conducting sheets” or “metallic ‘nets’ of ultra-fine mesh-spacing” in the stratosphere.

But their concern wasn’t global warming. It was the growing dependence on, and vulnerability of semiconductors.

In a paper presented to the US Air Force titled “Electromagnetic Pulse Threats in 2010“, Major Colin R. Miller describes the dangers from atmospheric radiation which could shut down every form of electronic communication in America. Disruption of semiconductors by solar flares could cause everything to just stop — from the basics like water and power to emergency services, all communications, transportation and national security. He outlines vital importance of shielding of these circuits, both individually and globally. (Interestingly, solar magnetism is increasingly being cited as an important cause of climate change, rendering the currently dominant androcentric theory useless).

In a 2009 interview with Ludwig Glinz about ‘Sferic Frequencies, Semiconductor Technologies and their effective Preservation and Protection,’ Uwe Behnken, founder of LiveNet Concept 2010 and long time activist against Chemtrail Spraying suggests that the massive injection of toxic substances into the stratosphere ever since the ’90s bears a direct relation to the protection of highly sensitive semiconductor technologies:

“Natural electromagnetic pulses are known to everybody ever since the film ‘The Day After’ where we learnt what happens if these are created artificially by means of the explosion of an atom bomb. If an atomic weapon explodes, the electromagnetic pulse causes semiconductor technologies to stop functioning. The same electromagnetic pulses can be registered in the event of elevated sferic frequencies or nuclear electromagnetic pulses stemming from elevated sun activities, and from our perspective this is another reason why it is undertaken to repel these sferic frequencies with the help of toxic substances, like aluminium oxides and barium-chlorides so as to protect semiconductor technologies.”

Interestingly, thick spraying of chemtrails has mainly been reported in the ‘developed’ countries – yet are sparse or non-existent in China, Africa, Indonesia, Russia, Japan, Central and South America.

Our vulnerability to radiation

Since the 1950’s when silicon and germanium transistors were suddenly “discovered” by Bell Laboratories, electronic circuitry has become entirely dependent upon these semiconductors. Radios containing vacuum tubes were replaced by transistor circuits and expensive room size computers, which used magnetic relays and solenoids, were quickly reduced to desktop “appliances” that are now found in most every home.

As we round the corner of the first decade of the 21st Century, micro-circuits are in our cellphones, satellites, “fly-by-wire” cars and almost all of the communications devices used by the financial, business and military institutions. In just 50 years since their introduction, semiconductors have become a most vital part of our life and a necessity for our survival in the modern ‘age of communication’.

But there’s a problem no one anticipated.

Technical difficulties?

Because the circuits are so incredibly small and function of such extremely low voltages, they are highly vulnerable to outside radiation. Rays from our sun, the atmosphere and even cosmic rays, can and do cause errors in these circuits that can have an impact on the lives and safety of everyone.

One of the problems related to semiconductor technology and as derived from some of its specific characteristics is, that upon exposure to various types of particles of atmospheric radiation — alpha particles, various ions, protons, and neutrons which can ‘hit’ the device — it can change state or alter its output, leading to an error. This phenomenon is widely known by the manufacturers and has been called ‘Single Event Effect’ (SEE), which, in turn, is classified in three basic categories: A soft error or ‘single event upset’ (SEU), a soft or hard error or ‘single event latch-up (SEL) and a hard failure or ‘single event burnout’ (SEB).

A Single Event Upset happens when the flow of data (“1’s” and “0’s”) is corrupted, such as when reading the binary code from a memory or processor an extra bit is added or lost. This is a fairly regular occurrence and is usually corrected within the device by a special code that counts the number of bits, checks to make sure the same number was received, and orders them to be repeated if there is a discrepancy.

A Single Event Latch is more serious. The external radiation causes one of the transistors to malfunction, allowing high voltage to enter the circuit and disabling the device either temporarily or permanently. The damage is usually localized and many critical circuits have built in redundancy to compensate for this.

A Single Event Burnout results when the radiation causes instantaneous yet large voltages to enter the circuit, burning the internal elements of the transistors and their surrounding components. When this happens the electronic circuits are permanently disabled.

All of the problems mentioned happen to semiconductor circuits when exposed to radiation. Manufacturers of commercial semiconductors do not design any protection against this and so our society — our way of life — is highly vulnerable. The protection from such things as solar radiation and cosmic rays has instead been to establish a conductive layer of metallic particles which cover and dissipate this radiation.

In an Atmospheric Radiation Effects Whitepaper by Ken Vranish, titled “The Growing Impact of Atmospheric Radiation Effects on Semiconductor Devices and the Associated Impact on Avionics Suppliers” the problem is put in perspective. The design and manufacturing of complex devices usually allow for flaws and malfunctions that are tracked statistically. A failure or malfunction that happens once in 40,000 hours could be thought of as negligible. But if the malfunction is in a life critical system, such as the navigation or engine control of a passenger aircraft, this could be deadly.

Next, complex designs usually take about a decade to reach production. The circuitry in use today was designed before the problem of radiation was well understood. So there is virtually no protection in individual circuits. This shifts the burden to a global solution, especially with regards to aviation electronics, such as atmospheric seeding with metallic substances.

All of the above is especially true for military applications of semiconductors.


A history of lies…and more lies

No doubt the public will feel disrespected when they learn that this fact has been hidden from them. But perhaps they will also take note of the many unusual airline tragedies that appear to be the result of some sudden electronic failure. Perhaps they will understand why automobile manufacturers, like Toyota, have not been up front about the vulnerabilities of today’s fly-by-wire automotive controls that should have faraday shield, at the very least.

With the Solar Maximum (the normal period of greatest solar activity over the sun’s 11 year cycle) approaching, we can expect more and more failures of semiconductors (and interestingly, more irregular weather patterns), resulting is all sorts of malfunctions and potential burnouts. One strong Coronal Mass Ejection is all the it would take to trigger the dire scenario portrayed by Major Miller.

Back in 2001, angry citizens had mustered enough physical evidence and thousands of photos and videos to make at least one congressman, Mr. Dennis Kucinich, include the phenomenon in a bill, (HR 2977) “The Space Preservation Act of 2001” where chemtrails were to be prohibited as an “exotic weapons system.” After some closed door discussions, the bill was re-introduced (HR 3615) with the chemtrail portion of the prohibition omitted.

Many of us who look up have noticed that beautiful sunny days are often turned into overcast by the crazy zig-zag flights of jets and wonder if this could also cause droughts, respiratory illnesses, or worse – the huge rise in Alzheimer’s Disease, which is almost certainly thanks to the huge increase of aluminium in the atmosphere. In fact, I myself was tested for heavy metals and yes–my tissues are unusually high in mercury, barium and aluminium. If I am contaminated with these poisons, surely millions of other people are, too. That this is all allowed to happen without public consent is crazy, and yet NO government in the world will even address these issues.


What you can do

First, check your health–you may be surprised to find that you have absorbed far, far more heavy metals than you’d expect. We were shocked to find high levels of barium, aluminium, lead, mercury and other toxins in our bodies. Getting tested is easy: snip off a chunk of hair and send it here or here for analysis. You can also have heavy metals tested through a skin test on the palm of your hand; find a nutritionist in your area who can do that.

If you find that you are indeed high in these toxins, you will need to regularly take supplements to try to detoxify. According to Natural News, the best choices include:

Chlorella – Pulls heavy metals from tissue and encapsulates toxins to prevent reabsorption in the digestive tract.

Pectin – Absorbs heavy metals in the intestines and assists with removal.

Cilantro concentrate – Eliminates mercury, lead and aluminum from the body.

Bentonite clay – An excellent detoxifier of heavy metals. If you take it orally, be sure to only ingest the food grade variety known as calcium bentonite clay (normal clay could contain lead). It can also be used in the bath for gentle detoxification through the skin.

Kombu seaweed – Rich in heavy metal-absorbing alginate.

Activated charcoal – Binds to heavy metals for safe removal from the body.

Ultimately, the discontinuation of spraying is the best protection against the health-ravaging consequences of chemtrails. Practical steps for stopping the assault can be found here, but also email or tweet your Congressman, MP or other local political representative this article and ask for answers.

Spreading the word about the dangers of chemtrails by sharing this post on social media and on blogs (you have our blessing) will also raise the alarm for others, which is essential: once the truth is out there and we, the public, show we’re not as stupid as governments think we are, these sinister, secret practices will have to stop.

    I’m an enthusiastic traveler, but I always think it’s important to remember the effects it can have on the environment. It was good to learn about chemtrails to learn more about what I can do and foster ecotourism. Getting involved politically and being informed of this are effective ways to make changes!

      Most of the chemtrails don’t actually come from commercial planes, but from secret government flights. Getting informed is indeed the first step, then joining a group like this in your local area is the second step! If we all raise a big stink about this, the government will have to stop poisoning us from above

    Ummm… aluminum oxide does not conduct electricity, in fact it is an insulator… but even if you sprayed a powder of electrically conductive particles into the air, how would they conduct when the particles are separated from each other? Sorry, makes no sense.

        Did you read the article? It says: “The protection from such things as solar radiation and cosmic rays has instead been to establish a conductive layer of metallic particles which cover and dissipate this radiation.”

        So it talks about a CONDUCTIVE layer, while simultaneously it talks about aluminum OXIDE, which is an INSULATOR.

        The whole article is just total nonsense.

      “Aluminium is a good thermal and electrical conductor, having 59% the conductivity of copper, both thermal and electrical, while having only 30% of copper’s density. Aluminium is capable of being a superconductor, with a superconducting critical temperature of 1.2 kelvin and a critical magnetic field of about 100 gauss (10 milliteslas).[11]” [Wiki]

        Do you understand that aluminum is not the same as aluminum oxide? Aluminum is a good electrical conductor but aluminum OXIDE is an extremely bad conductor.

    Thank you very much for writing and posting this article in your magazine. It’s a critical issue that all people must obtain knowledge about, as no individual or any living system is immune to the dangerous outcomes of heavy metal toxicity. Together, in greater numbers, we must act to demand a stop to these programs.

    Thank you for addressing this critical issue. This information should be plastered on the front page of every newspaper, magazine and the nightly news. But seeing how all of our news is bought and paid for by a handful of corporations it’s up to all of us to spread the word far and wide. Our skies look like something out of a horror movie these days and it’s like pulling teeth to get anyone to look up or care. Time is of the essence when we are losing over 200 species a day, the oceans are warming, our soils have become so toxic, it’s becoming much harder to grow food, the list is long. I hope others follow your lead and get the word out to many.

    This is one of the most well researched articles I’ve seen, to date, explaining the constant spraying of our skies and the reason why “they” are spraying. I have heard many speakers, and read many articles on this subject and have seen the lab results proving these toxins are raining down on all of us constantly. Thank you for such an excellent job helping us expose this crime to people who have been purposely lied to by their own military, and governments, who claim that what we are seeing is simply water vapor. Biggest elephant in the room folks. Better start waking up your loved ones and anyone else who will listen to the truth and help us end this harmful,covert program.

    Soberant: Firstly, you are not even brave enough to show your real name. Secondly, there is more than enough proof that CHEMTRAILS do exist and have existed for many years. There is a abundance of testing to prove that the TRAILS we all have witnessed and photographed all over the globe are not from normal passenger/commercial flights and that those TRAILS are persistent.unique and composed of hazardous materials as evidenced by soil, air and water samples. I find this article to be extremely accurate and informative and I find you, Soberant, to be characteristic of a TROLL who is wasting our time.

Those trails in the sky are simply CONTRAILS, nothing else. Ice crystals! Don’t you feel ridiculous that you are scared of ice crystals 6 miles above your head?

Never doubt that war and control are at the heart of this. And the environmental/health effects are biocidal.
