Much suspicion has been aroused by unusual cloud formations and abnormal jet trails in the upper atmosphere over the past decade. I have personally witnessed hundreds of days of ‘engineered’' jet trails and clouds, both in the UK and in Poland. However, it has proved extremely difficult to obtain any information about the phenomenon from official sources. When challenged, the normal answer is “nothing unusual is happening.”
This turns out to be very far from the truth. While I concentrate most of this article on just one recent example of professional research on the topic, there have been hundreds of both official and unofficial documents exploring and exposing the military and civil aviation antics responsible for spraying layer upon layer of toxic aerosol “chemtrails” in the sky above our heads on an almost daily basis for the past ten years.
These events go unreported by the mainstream media and governments remain silent. This collusion, whether intentional or otherwise, keeps us in the dark with regard to a grand geo-engineering experiment that has the effect of hobbling our health and severely disrupting the natural environment. And we would have been lost but for the internet.
The Belgium based Belfort Group has brought together more than seven years of research and fact finding on the activities that have become largely known as “Chemtrails”. At an international symposium at Delft University of Technology in Ghent, 29 May 2010, the Belfort Group enlisted Dr Coen Vermeeren, a senior aeronautics engineer, to address the issue. Vermeeren based his presentation on a 300 page scientific report entitled  “Case Orange: Contrail Science, Its Impact on Climate and Weather Manipulation Programs Conducted by the United States and Its Allies.” According to Vermeeren, the authors of the report are “a group of scientists/inside who have chosen to remain anonymous.”
In his talk, Dr Vemeeren frankly admits to the existence of “persistent contrails”; he said:
“We also know that chemtrails do exist because we do the spraying; for crops, for example, and we know that they have been spraying for military purposes. So chemtrails is not new. We know about it.”
From weather manipulation to geoengineering
The Case Orange report reveals the existence of publicly available material indicating that various forms of geoengineering have been going on for “at least 60 years.” Early examples include the 'cloud seeding' UK war operations in Germany during World War Two and the US attempts to dislodge the North Vietnamese during the Vietnam War. However, these pale into insignificance compared with the extensive nature of current activities.
Controversy over the potentially detrimental effects of such activities on both the environment and human health led to 'Environmental Modification' (En Mod) weaponry being banned under the auspices of “The UN Convention on the Prohibition of Military or Any Other Hostile Use of Environmental Modification Techniques” in 1987. It is not clear whether this ban was ever fully enforced. However, interest in En Mod soon gained prominence when global warming warnings and accompanying environmental stress issues attracted global scientific interest .
The Case Orange report cites a number of US patents for the invention of a “Specific contrail generation apparatus for producing a powder contrail having maximum radiation scattering ability for a given weight of material. The seeding material consists of 85 percent metallic particles and 15 percent colloidal silica and silica gel in order to produce a stable contrail that has a residence period of up to 1 to 2 weeks.”
Then in 2009, the publication of a report entitled “Modification of cirrus clouds to reduce global warming” put the case for further geo-engineering strategies . These all had the stated intent of creating a layer of reflective cloud capable of bouncing back the sun's rays to prevent unwanted terrestrial climate heating. The report states that the findings of The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change supports the proposition outlined in the Hughes Aircraft Patent 1991 on stratospheric seeding for reduction of global warming. Hughes was later bought by Raytheon, The US government's private defence contractor. This is the same company that acquired the contract to build HAARP (The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) in Gakona, Alaska.
The industrial-military complex for complete weather control against global warming
HAARP is a large 180 antennae grid that projects powerful electromagnetic pulses to heat a specific point in the earth's ionosphere. This has the effect of creating electromagnetic frequencies that can be bounced back to earth at desired locations, causing major disruption to weather and geophysical elements, even deep underground [4, 5]. Up to 3.6 billion watts can be generated by HAARP, heating the ionosphere to over 50 000 degrees and “lifting a 30 square kilometre area of the ionosphere, thereby changing localised pressure systems or even altering the route of jet streams.”
The Case Orange report cites evidence that Raytheon could develop the capacity to “exercise a form of complete “weather control”, a situation bearing a marked similarity to the Monsanto corporation's stated ambition “to control the food chain.” It is noteworthy that there are currently more than 500 ‘climate ready’ genetically modified plant gene patents awaiting licensing approvals in Washington and Brussels. ‘Climate Ready’ GM seeds and plants are promised by their creators to be capable of producing a crop under both flood and drought conditions.
The human rights and environmental watchdog 'ETC Group' describes the atmospheric geoengineering developments as follows: “The roll-out of 'Plan B' (a reference to the use of geoengineering if other efforts to curtail emissions should be deemed ineffective) is being skilfully executed: Prominent high level panels sponsored by prestige groups, a spate of peer-reviewed articles in science journals and a line up of panicked politicians in northern countries, nodding nervously in agreement as scientists testify about the “need to research Plan B.”
Rady Ananda states at the end of his paper : “Case Orange ties-in a 1996 report by top military personnel in the US entitled “Weather as a Force Multiplier: Owning the Weather in 2025”  with details such as government spraying schedules, chemical orders, correct nomenclature used in airline operation manuals and calls for geoengineering by economists, to support its notion of “heavy involvement of governments at top level in climate control projects.” Ananda continues : “Owning the Weather in 2025 provides a specific time line for the use of En Mod technologies in cooperation with the Weather Modification Association, a business-government group promoting the 'beneficial' (my emphasis) uses of environmental modification :
2000-2025 Use chemicals for atmospheric seeding by civilian (as well as military) aviation
2004 Create smart clouds through nanotechnology, with exponential increase from 2010
2005 Introduce carbon black dust.”
The UN enlisted in geoengineering military combat against climate
In 2007, The World Meteorological Organisation (of the United Nations) published a statement that included “Guidelines for Planning of Weather Modification Activities.” This document clearly implicates the UN in plans to conduct aerosol spraying activities on a wide scale.
In a section of the Case Orange report dealing with 'the bare necessities of geoengineering through cloud generation for the survival of the planet' the authors state: “Our investigation team comes to the conclusion that climate control programs, controlled by the military but approved by governments, are silently implemented in order to avoid the worst case scenario they obviously do not want. The two basic instruments are temperature control through the generation of artificial clouds and manipulation of the ionosphere through ionosphere heaters.
“Both remain basically military combat systems with the option to go into the offensive if deemed necessary. However, since several ionospheric heaters are installed at various places around the globe, one can assume that there is wide cooperation between governments in order to reach climate targets by 2025: controlling the weather and the planet.” (my emphasis).
The spraying schemes seem to be organised in a logical pattern so that the whole of Europe is covered in a 3 day period. Coloured maps of Europe indicate when each regime is to take place.
In the report's section entitled “Recommendations”, the authors state: “Persistent chemtrails have a devastating impact on eco-systems on this planet and to quality of life in general.” The authors call for the full disclosure of the current En Mod activities to the public, as well as for all civil aviation laws to be abided by.
Moratorium on geoengineering activities
One encouraging piece of information is that, in response to policy interest in geoengineering as a means to control climate, the sub-committee of the United Nations Convention of Biodiversity proposed, in May 2010, a moratorium on geoengineering activities . This proposal will be heard at the Tenth Conference of Parties to the UN Convention of Biodiversity in Nagoya, Japan in October this year (2010).
The Case Orange report further states that the US permits open air testing of chemical and biological weapons, which overrides the civil law mentioned earlier in this article. The authors paraphrase the permissive law thus: “The Secretary of Defense may conduct tests and experiments involving the use of chemical and biological agents on civilian populations.” It seems that ‘national security’ concerns can be used by the President to overrule environmental and public health considerations. Is the same true in Europe?
I have provided a basic outline of the main evidence arising from the Case Orange report. It makes an important contribution to opening up otherwise secretive agendas that have no place in any self-declared democracy. Other significant reports include an important paper by Dr Ilya Perlingieri, entitled “The Consequences of Toxic Metals and Chemical Aerosols on Human Health” . She states: “Over the past decade, independent testing of Chemtrails around the country have shown a dangerous, extremely poisonous brew that includes: barium, nano-aluminium coated fibreglass (known as CHAFF), radioactive thorium, cadmium, chromium, nickel, dessicated blood, mould spores, yellow fungal mycotoxins, ethylene dibromide and polymer fibres. Barium can be compared to the toxicity of arsenic  and is known to adversely affect the heart. Aluminium has a history of damaging brain function.” I need hardly add that ethylene dibromide is a highly toxic agricultural pesticide.
Now that we are party to this information we must act on it. It is vital that we support the moratorium taking place in Japan this October. Do write to your MPs and tell them that these global activities are not the stuff of 'conspiracy theories'; and that they are taking place without public consultation and without any attempt to warn of their likely repercussions.
