Climate Engineering Atmospheric Aerosols Are Blocking The Sky From Astronomers

The list of catastrophic consequences being inflicted on our planet by the ongoing global climate engineering assault is unimaginably long and growing by the day. "Solar radiation management" programs have long since been fully deployed. These completely unregulated climate engineering operations are for the specific purpose of blocking out the sun by using jet aircraft to spray highly toxic reflective heavy metals and chemicals into the atmosphere, what could go wrong? In addition to wreaking havoc with global weather patterns, destroying the ozone layer, and contaminating the entire biosphere, climate engineering atmospheric particulates are, of course, blotting out the skies and thus greatly hampering the ability of astronomers to view the cosmos. A recent article from Gizmodo points out that geoengineering "could be" a disaster for Astronomy. Though the Gizmodo article unfortunately does not admit to the ongoing climate engineering reality (and thus that climate engineering is already a disaster for astronomy), the ongoing geoengineering/weather warfare assault is rationally undeniable.

From the Gizmodo article:

Geoengineering is one of those things that sounds like maybe a good idea on paper but could also go horribly, apocalyptically wrong. But if the prospect of plunging Earth’s weather systems into chaos isn’t enough to convince scientists we need to tread very cautiously with the ultimate global warming tech-fix, perhaps this will: geoengineering could be a disaster for science.

This photo of Earth was taken from Apollo 17 in 1972. Other than the Antarctic region at the bottom of this photo, there were many open blue sky zones. 

That’s according to new models by Charlie Zender, an atmospheric physicist at the University of California, Irvine who presented the provacatively-titled research poster “Death of Darkness: Artificial Sky Brightness in the Anthropocene” at the the American Geophysical Union conference this month. In a nutshell, Zender found that injecting light-scattering particles into the stratosphere—one of the most widely-discussed strategies for rapidly cooling the planet—would have the unintended side-effect of disrupting incoming light from distant stars and planets.

This NASA satellite photo of Earth was taken on July 6th, 2015.  There are very few "clear" regions to be seen in this recent photo of our planet.  Even the zones that appear at first glance to be cloudless, are hazy.​

As you might imagine, this would be very bad news for the scientists who study said stars and planets. “If we geoengineered globally, this would affect all telescopes around the world,” Zender told Gizmodo.

SAI (stratospheric aerosol injection) has come under heavy fire for an obvious reason: conducting a worldwide experiment on our one and only shared global atmosphere is inherently dangerous.

The satellite images above are very revealing. The images corporate media weather "forecasters" show to their viewing public are heavily filtered. The "enhanced infrared" (unfiltered) image clearly shows massive geoengineering aerosol operations. The "standard infrared" (filtered) image only reveals the remaining atmospheric haze from the jet aircraft particulate dispersions.

Zender found that the night sky over urban areas would become roughly 25 percent brighter. That’s because our stratospheric shield would backscatter light from ground sources…

Earth's oceans are not spared from the ongoing global climate engineering operations. In fact, the seas are subjected to two types of highly destructive climate engineering programs, solar radiation management (SRM) and ocean fertilization.​

Of course, most astronomy doesn’t take place anywhere near cities. The best observatories in the world are located on remote mountaintops, high above air pollution and far away from light pollution. Here, Zender’s models show a somewhat different, but equally bad effect: SAI would actually make the skydarker.

geoengineeringwatch-org-46

Massive climate engineering (SRM, SAI) aerosol dispersions are now constantly visible in unfiltered satellite images.

“Our telescopes are in positions where most of the [night] light comes from the stars,” Zender explained. “There, what the aerosols do is they backscatter light from outer space. That means you’re not getting as much starlight, and the starlight you do get is less pristine. The stars would look fuzzier.”

Though the threat posed by climate engineering/weather warfare is inconceivably greater than just the loss of clear skies for astronomers, all catastrophic aspects of the covert global climate engineering programs must be considered. We must all do our part in the battle to expose and halt the geoengineering assault, make your voice heard in the critical effort to sound the alarm.

    Artificial weather manipulation, microwave patterns in the sky, spraying and chemically polluted rain.  Constant  chemical spraying by jets before and after rain in Southern California.  These people alstwl reap their reward someday. Think is starting to be time to wear breathing masks around here. God help us all!

  3. DL Mullan says:

    There are many nights in Phoenix, AZ where the planes continue to spray. Full moons are especially difficult to get a good clear night to view. A meteorologist stated that Phoenix has 70 days of cloudy weather, when i remember from a decade or so ago those days were numbered around 63. Arizona, especially Phoenix, is supposed to have less cloudy days than Florida… not anymore. I am sickened at our blah skies of clouds that are soup. These clouds are not clouds. Clouds are puffy little islands that coast along the wind currents. It's embarrassing to see the ecological destruction and people blow you off for pointing it out. I implore everyone to take pictures of the geoengineering and begin publishing yearly calendars showing the lines as well as photojournals about the geoengineering in your area. i am going to start myself. Lulu is easy to use. we can start spreading the word that geoengineering is real and it is not all right to be doing. Earth is not a laboratory… Thank you!

    The French revolution occurred because of famine caused by the volcano ash which covered the skies for a year and a half, causing massive crop failures. Strangely relevant, as it is this volcanic ash action which geoengineering was somewhat modeled from . Yes, for some years the world renowned observatories of The Big Island of Hawaii were left free of obstruction, the reason some of us moved there at the time. It was very difficult tho to speak there of something most had not seen, so it's good to know there are some working on this there now. They began spraying regularly there in around 2007 as I recall. Not nearly the same as mainland, but probably a good place to test different toxic brews, as it would be done in two to four week blocks of time. I find Scott Noble's documentaries from Metanoia Films to be outstanding historical research. If everyone on the planet could be made to view Plutocracy and also Power, they could forget about this third world war insanity. No one would go for it. In the meanwhile, all of life , all of nature, works through call and response. Let's call on the Earth's greater wisdom, that which creates our wisdom.

  5. Matthew Clayton says:

    I share the reports and the Saturday broadcasts on Facebook and Twitter and Google. I share them to a Facebook group dedicated to spreading the word about geoengineering, vaccines,fracking and fluoride. I send them as private messages to people as well. People see the other things I post and comment or like, however, there is never a comment, a like, or a dislike on the geoengineering posts, except for a friend in Uganda. I am guessing that Facebook does not carry those posts into other people's home feeds even though I can see them. I get the same result with fluoride and vaccine posts. I know some people would react somehow if they saw them. The fact that I keep getting zero responses means that they are either being hidden or, everyone is afraid to step through their cognitive dissonance. Perhaps many worry they will be labeled and targeted if they talk about it. I know that a lot of others refuse to even look at it as they have been led to believe that anyone who believes this stuff is a kook with more than one screw loose. I don't rave at people but some still take it as raving, as in stark raving mad. Then, if I bring up fluoride, vaccines and the obvious truth about 9,11; I might as well be pounding ear plugs in their ears. It is frustrating knowing that they will all find themselves in the middle of a rude awakening shortly. Even in waking up I know many will still refuse to believe the entire truth just so they won't have to admit they were mistaken and were fooled. I am sure the powers that be will be throwing scapegoats in from any angle they see.

    I wanted to mention that the skin is the biggest organ of our bodies. A nice warm shower, or bath, opens pores. Even if you ingest no fluoride, you are still being medicated without your consent, through the pores of your skin, every time you take a shower. I am sure more people would be willing to wake up if they weren't being fluoridated.

  6. David former Navy Aerographers Mate (Weather Obsever/Forecaster) says:

    The SAG/SRM programs are highly evident in those satellite images. There is also a significant milky film over the entire Earth, in the July 6, 2015 satellite image, compared to the image taken in 1972. I remember when I was reading satellite images in the Navy, there were several filters that could be turned on and off, to distinguish between High, Mid and Low clouds. The High clouds would be the brightest white ,from the colder temperatures, as well as snow cover. Fog and Smoke could also be visible, depending on what filter type was being used!

  7. James says:

    These military brain-dead SOBs fron March AFB in Riverside Country are spraying the San Diego Coastline 24/7. Their toxic crap blows onshore daily.

    Hello Dane and friends, thank you for your Work.

    Hello Dane, about astronomy, I've heard in the radio that NASA is pushing the bullshit conversation about two "objects" that are coming in direction of the Earth. One, they say is a Comet, the second, they say is a very strange "object" that it's impossible to identify. I think they will go forward with the bullshit SCAM about some kind of alien invasion to cover the start of an nuclear war with Russia. Even with murky skies they can see what others can't.

    Dane, to fight against TIME, because we do NOT have a lot of it, ALL the Persons that want to expose the CLIMATE DESTRUCTION and the agenda of the end of Humanity, must get together ( movie directors, musicians, movie stars, doctors, journalists, activists, NET sites, etc.. ) and create a TV channel or work in partnership with a TV or CABLE channel that broadcasts for the entire US, and to the rest of the World, with the purpose of passing in a very quick way the message and ALL the TRUE info about what's going on. All the documents, documentaries, interviews, medical evidences, etc.. must be together and delivered to ALL the people by the "magic" box, that people worship more than common sense and more than.. GOD.

    I've told to you, climate engineering is already a depopulation program.

    1/3 of all Women suffer from breast cancer ( Worldwide ), and this is directly connected with the taking of the birth control pills that give to the pharma F fascist industry billion$$ every year..

    Now, lung cancer surpasses this reality. Due to hormones, Women are more susceptible of contracting lung cancer than Men. And this is connected with the aluminum we are breathing.

    Make the math.

    The MFs don't need to kill Men, only maintaining the situation as it is now, it's already possible to end Humanity in some decades. The End of the Biosphere is collateral damage for the MFs.

    In the last days ( Thursday and Friday ) we had max temperatures of 20º C, for sure ( I have a tan ) although the forecast has pointed max temperatures for these days of 13 or 14ºC. Of course, we didn't had almost any spraying, today is the same, blue skies with almost no spraying.

    Thank you.

    Pedro.

    Good Luck to Us All.

    1-6-17 9:30pm PST: CALIFORNIA RAIN AND SNOW event — radar appears to be showing multiple transmitters GOING OFF simultaneously on the coast of California from Eureka to Los Angeles.  Large radial bursts of energy in multiple locations.  Increasing desperation with the magnitude of these storms.  I can feel it all through my system.  Stay out of the rain.      

  10. Randall richards says:

    I was wondering Dane, at Arctic news , the new year end summery is very alarming and a 18 degree rise in temps will happen by 2026. And that would mean extinction pretty much. However their findings are betting on a giant methane burp, besides seeping everywhere already. Do u believe they are forgetting the increase of carbon from dying trees which would advance their projections? Thanks

    • Dane Wigington says:

      Hello Randall, about the Arctic News site, though I believe the AMEG group who posts on the site are considering all sources of greenhouse gases, that AMEG refuses to consider or acknowledge is the ongoing climate engineering global assault and the decimation to the climate system these programs are causing. Exposing and halting climate engineering is the big variable in this extremaly dark equation, we must accomplish this, and that effort will take all of us.  FYI http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/introducing-geoengineering-climate-engineering-to-the-uninformed/

  11. GM says:

    They r bz spraying again in S. Calif. especially in San Bernardino County right after the rain :/

    One More Thing From Joe @ Philadelphia North: Enough with the Mainstream Media, CNN, CBS, ABC, MSN, FOX, and others of that ilk, Will keep trying to avoid the real issues and they keep speaking of Russian Hackers and our Elections, what they fail to realize,  is anyone under the age of 70 Years Old KNOWS HOW THE INTERNET WORKS PERIOD ! And our Election Machines CAN'T BE HACKED BECAUSE THEIR SO OLD AND ARE NOT CONNECTED TO THE INTERNET, only one news outlet said this, and that person must have been reprimanded because I haven't seen anyone say that since… The reasons why; are many, we need enemies to keep this going, But my belief,  is there trying hard to keep everyone looking at the Soviets, instead them "The Military Industrial Industrial Complex"

    Lets get to our so called intelligence, enough already with the stupid stuff, and lets pay attention to real intelligence, like lets try the FBI folks they seem not to be intimidated by the CIA's agenda, which is to keep war going. ,And not to look at these programs that our killing everyone and everything in & On this planet – With this SRM SRI and GEM, enough said on this matter. Enough about the Russian hackers, and lets start talking about how these oath takers can keep their oaths regarding this country. Remember America protect her against all enemies foreign and Domestic, we have real domestic problems …This must be addressed immediately

    Hello To All: It's Friday Jan., 06,2017 After a night of Artificial Snow Storm, the Sun TRIED DESPERATELY to come out…And soon as it did, they came, the jets and started to cover the natural sun light with a heavy spray day.. NO SUN FOR US TODAY!! That how it seems to me. I don't know how others feel, but after looking at these pictures above of all the toxic spraying covering the entire planet. It's pretty heart sinking to see these photos. Who CAN STOP THIS MADNESS ? ? ? Someone who actually cares about something other then money. Sorry, for feeling so sick to my stomach, but that's exactly how I feel – SICK TO MY STOMACH seeing these planet photos.

    Signing off, Good Luck, and Thanks again Dane. 

    • Dennie says:

      Not only does it make me figuratively sick to my stomach, the chem sprays used in the Super Cool-Downs LITERALLY make me sick at my stomach.  Whenever I'd go outside today I'd feel nauseated and dizzy.  The crap has sh!t in it that burns when it hits your skin so you also feel like you've got a spikey fever at times.  I'd come indoors and the nausea would settle down.  When it gets reeeally bad I am positioned over the Porcelain Stallion for half a day– really fun, huh?  Remember: "BETTER LIVING THROUGH CHEMISTRY!!!!"  — Dow Chemical, makers of NAPALM (white phosphorus, a petrochemical gel stew that burns you all the way to the bone, literally, when it hits; witness Kim Phuc: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2153091/Napalm-girl-photo-Vietnam-War-turns-40.html) This IS a War on US!

    • Diane Friday says:

      @Dennie:  

      I never doubted you when you wrote that the ongoing and intensifying chemical assaults make you vomit at times, and I'm afraid the same thing may start happening to me soon. Ever since these miserable, clinically insane psychopaths gave the order to begin this toxic chemically ice nucleated cool-down in earnest, it's been hitting me right in the gut. 

      It's been four or five weeks since the first much-hyped "Arctic blast" hit here in southeastern PA and elsewhere. Once the artificially engineered "Arctic blast" was firmly in place – the very first morning – I stepped outside for maybe five seconds, max. I expected to feel that ungodly artificial cold, made all the worse by the attendant strong NNW winds. I didn't have the time, nor was I awake enough, to expect to feel anything else. I stepped back inside, and within minutes felt like someone had punched me in the solar plexus. I thought it might be related to the ice nucleation crap, but thought it could just as easily be my now chronic gastritis. The punched in the gut feeling lasted quite some time, but eventually went away…until the next time I went outside during this first "Arctic blast", and the time after that, and almost every time since. Even when the initial pain goes away, I have almost no appetite any time I'm exposed. It's now gotten to the point where I almost wish I would vomit just to alleviate the feeling. I fear that's going to happen sooner rather than later, as the chemical ice nucleation seems to be getting worse every day. I don't know whether they're using something new, or if they're just using so much more of it, or both. 

      I know this has been going on for many years, in winter, spring, and fall, but it's absolutely off the charts this year. I think it's safe to say we aren't the only ones suffering with this particular symptom, as well as the long list of other physical and psychological symptoms. 

      We continue to try and wake people up to these ongoing atrocities, with limited success, but more and more people are slowly coming around. 

  14. BaneB says:

    It seems obvious, after seeing the comparison of the two earth images, that our former pristine atmosphere is being terra-formed.  How much further the terra-terrorists will smother life on earth is up for a best guess.  Will the sunshine actually be blotted out, the daylight a white toxic fluorescent glow?  Is THIS the visible "I-Cloud?"…..a global parabolic amplification of the techno age and the insatiable appetite for microwave-wireless to facilitate global control and doomsday communications?  Is "force-enhancement"  via weather terrorism one layer, whilst overly powered cell towers, GWEN, NEXRAD, GBOSS, XBX, and techno-secrets, combined with overhead satellites, another?  How many layers are there? This metal-nano-particulated "eye-cloud"  is the all knowing, all seeing purposed enhancement for total information via full-spectrum 'wireless' dominance.  Jade Helm was was an exercise to "master the 'human' domain."  And, this eye-cloud is how the our masters will accomplish this.

    • Dennie says:

      If the so-called "humans" in charge of Jade Helm are any indication, IT was a disaster as well.  The idiots who thunk it up are an even larger disaster.

      The "scientists" in charge of the geoengineering sprays are a much worse disaster than their programs.  They ARE The Disaster.  Like sheep-killing dogs, they need to be euhanized before they cause any more harm, though I'm afraid "They" get to see their Every Last Wish, never mind the consequences– these so-called "brilliant" minds are faaaar and awaaaaaaaay muuuuch too stooopid to figure out that A.) anything's "wrong" at all, with their insane ideas, or B.) even to notice when it inevitably goes awry.  A$$HOLES– UGHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Mario says:

      Well said Bane.  I'm trying to frame it like this: Each step they take in a certain direction I take a step in the opposite direction.  I am slowly turning away from "their" narrative, "their" way of life, "their" want and desire for me to be a fearful, bed wetting consumer.  I want to be angry all the time, but that is just gonna chew up my insides and give them what they want.  I'm not going to give them what they want.  Stop buying their stuff, stop putting money in their banks, stop watching their senseless and sensationalized news, stop buying into a single thing they say or want.  I have a bumper sticker on my car that reads" Unwilling Participant of an Idiocracy".  

      Something that teaching kids has bestowed upon me is the revelation that we instinctively mimic one another to feel accepted and part of the herd.  Probably because somewhere along the way it helped us survive.  I think if we reach critical mass, we will see the group think mentality take over and people will begin accepting reality, and maybe turn the tide to stop this.  People will follow one another out of the dark abyss of denial and stupidity.

      It is painful to be one of the wide awake ones right now.  Biblical NEXRAD storm coming.  Feels like I just got whacked in the ear with a tuning fork. 

      Don't eat the snow,

      Mario

    Heavy aerosol spraying operation during  1-6-17 ahead of "biblical rain event" from an "atmospheric river".  Everyone I see is sick and coughing with heavy congestion.  This is bio-terrorism.  Plain and simple.

    • virginia says:

      Mario: Correct you are…there is something fishy about this epidemic, all of a sudden, of this highly congestive, hacking cough thing going around. Four out of my family are down with it ….coughing non-stop, and all young and healthy (before this).  We are in N. California.  Wonder what is coming, next?  Stay well.

    • BaneB says:

      Virginia: I am about 100 miles southwest of you.  You reside in a very beautiful area.  The air quality in Mt. Shasta out to be near-pristine, especially so at this time of year when cold fronts clean out the atmosphere.  One probable source for the after holidays illnesses is because millions of travellers get onto airplanes, in very close quarters, and regurgitated in-plane air, and only one person with a cold onboard can infect the lot.  These disembark, kissing and hugging relatives and friends.  Soon enough the entire nation is ill.  It's great for the pharmaceutical industrialists.  Really, the initial "Typhoid Mary" might have come out of an aerosol can at JFK.  Add to a cold the non stop atmospheric spraying, assaulted immune systems, and another "thunderstorm asthma" and a new handle will be born……morbidity by breathing.

      @Mario:  The CHEM SPRAYS are also making people nauseated, feverish (they burn when the ice nucleation chems hit your skin) and dizzy– I have in mind to visualize someone pouring a bag of their Very Special atmospheric "remedy" over the heads of Every Single ONE of Those Who Created The Chem Stews and the beyond-diabolical "idea" of spraying this planet with THEIR NASTY, TOXIC

    • Vicki says:

      Mario, I hear ya!  Heavy spraying here in the D.C. metro area.  They were calling for snow and of course not much happened. (they can barely wring any moisture out of the skies these days) Then the forecaster actually said "we're going to try and squeeze" some snow out the day after.  What happened to jet streams and weather patterns leading to weather events?  And know one seems to be catching on.  It's either feast or famine! And you're correct, everyone is getting congested and they think it's just a cold.  I've been quite congested, sinuses running like a water faucet and I never get sick! But I'm doing my best on Instagram and by word of mouth referring everyone I can to Dane's website.

    hi everyone,

    As some are wondering how the tempering with tv and film content is happening ,please consider the possibility that today it can be done automatically by very sophisticated algorithms. You don't need anyone manually painting anything, it can even be done live on air, that's a fact.

    Nasa is doing the same thing everyday with its supposed live pictures from earth .

    Todays computer power used by the military and their offsprings (nasa,nsa,facebook,google,rayethon etc.) is capable of creating,simulating,interfering and manipulating our daily lives and if it's digital it happens in real time !

    And as a sidenote regarding the  above two (!) pictures of our full earth which where created by nasa with  40 years in between ! how can anybody really believe they are real ?

    ask you this:

    why don't we have one of these thousands of satellites dedicated to a 24/7 livestream with the whole earth in plain side for everyone to enjoy?

     Either they can't (what i thing is definately part of the he reason) or / and they don't want us to have a real view of our environment (which is obviously true, even on smaller scale view as dane shows us above with the manipulated satellite pictures).

    In my opinion nasa,hollywood et al. have all one purpose, manipulating our perception and fooling our minds to not use our brains.

    The Year of the Commando U.S. Special Operations Forces Deploy to 138 Nations, 70% of the World’s Countries / By Nick Turse / Jan.5, 2017 [excerpts]
    For America, 2016 may have been the year of the commando.  In one conflict zone after another across the northern tier of Africa and the Greater Middle East, U.S. Special Operations forces (SOF) waged their particular brand of low-profile warfare.  … SOCOM’s shadow wars against terror groups like al-Qaeda and the Islamic State (also known as ISIL) may, ironically, be its most visible operations.  Shrouded in even more secrecy are its activities — from counterinsurgency and counterdrug efforts to seemingly endless training and advising missions — outside acknowledged conflict zones across the globe.  These are conducted with little fanfare, press coverage, or oversight in scores of nations every single day.  From Albania to Uruguay, Algeria to Uzbekistan, America’s most elite forces — Navy SEALs and Army Green Berets among them — were deployed to 138 countries in 2016, according to figures supplied to TomDispatch by U.S. Special Operations Command.  This total, one of the highest of Barack Obama’s presidency, typifies what has become the golden age of, in SOF-speak, the “gray zone” — a phrase used to describe the murky twilight between war and peace.  The coming year is likely to signal whether this era ends with Obama or continues under President-elect Donald Trump’s administration. … In 2016, according to data provided to TomDispatch by SOCOM, the U.S. deployed special operators to China (specifically Hong Kong), in addition to eleven countries surrounding it — Taiwan (which China considers a breakaway province), Mongolia, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Nepal, India, Laos, the Philippines, South Korea, and Japan.  Special Operations Command does not acknowledge sending commandos into Iran, North Korea, or Russia, but it does deploy troops to many nations that ring them. … SOCOM acknowledges deployments to approximately 70% of the world’s nations, including all but three Central and South American countries (Bolivia, Ecuador, and Venezuela being the exceptions). Its operatives also blanket Asia, while conducting missions in about 60% of the countries in Africa.  
    MAP of America’s most elite troops deployed to 138 nations in 2016, according to U.S. Special Operations Command.  The map above displays the locations of 132 of those countries; 129 locations (blue) were supplied by U.S. Special Operations Command; 3 locations (red) — Syria, Yemen and Somalia — were derived from open-source information. here:

      There is a serious schism and power struggle going on at the level of the so-called Deep State, and the dominant Neocon/Neolib agenda is currently being threatened from within. “The Russians Did It” is a distracting cover story, perfect for the limited attention and diminished intelligence of our time. Trump is hardly a revolutionary, but as a creature of the media serves as a convenient place-holder, and is thoroughly expendable. In any event, this dynamic is often settled with an assassination. But the formerly noble American Experiment jumped the rails long ago. Whichever sides prevails, we all lose.

    Dane, and all my friends I haven't met yet,

    This is a damn good article in regards to the photos. To bad that yet another entity will not acknowledge the assault going on above our heads on a daily basis(whether you see it or not). We 'need' our "brothers and sisters" in the media to step up. I would not be surprised if "astronomers" had a gag order on them. If not, I would not want to bare the shame they have coming. I say this knowing it hits close to home. My brother is a genius amateur astronomer. In high school he went to astronomer summer camps. Honestly, I can not understand for the life of me why he can't see things as they really are. Maybe computer engineer genius's are to busy looking at their computer screens, ???

    Astronomy, don't know much about it, but I sure do appreciate what I get to see in the heavens above my head at night. I ran sled dogs for 20 years. Distance dogs. From October to march, I was out running teams at night. Get home from work, eat, go run dogs. Just so you know, that's where "it" was at for me. "Functions/competitions" were just a social get together for me and the few that thought as I did. "WE ROCKED". While running at night I ran in all phases of the moon. I vividly remember one night that was crisp, clear and very cold. No moon, only the milky way to light our way. Oh sure I had a head lamp, but, if you turn it off, the dogs went faster(It did away with a shadow line).15 miles in 45 minutes and not one word from my mouth the whole way. It was heaven in the night. Best run of my life. I remember how that milky way would glisten on the snow or the frosted ground. These days it's hardly recognizable in the sky. It used to look like a fat belt of stars across the sky. Now days it looks like something you'd get at walmart and doesn't light up squat.

    Icicles! Not what they used to be, that's for sure. Icicles are a leading indicator as to how much moisture there actually is in the snow that fell at your place. Myself, where I live, We're lacking icicles for sure, everywhere. And the snow this year does not set up like cement after I plow it off of my driveway like in the last several years. There's no moisture in it this year. The ground is dry, yet we had a damp fall. Years ago the snow would melt on top and freeze during the night and in the morning you could literally walk on top of the snow. C'mon, there has to be more than just myself that remembers this. I'm sure many of you will agree that "these days" many of the masses have a memory about as long as their you know what, geesh. I remember vividly, dark blue skies. Baby blue is not how the sky should look during a sunny day. I can't break it down any more simpler than that.

    I speak often here of "teaching". I teach of what "we need to over come" AND "where we need to go", they must go together. I've always been good at ripping the top off of a can of worms. I've also been good at knowing what to do to contain those worms so they are put to good use. "From the ground up", isn't that how life is put together?

    I am willing to bet, and if this hasn't already been started yet, these geoengineers, the elites, the governments and various 'organizations' will make everyone 'pay' into a tax if you want to see the sun again, because you know, they consider the sun a 'public utility', and something that should be regulated. At least you get free 'snowstorms' and 'weather' that's full of dangerous chemicals .

  22. Joe Ceonnia says:

    Joe Reporting Today 01-05-2017 Thursday Philadelphia North, The sun came out, and Immediately the Jet came out to white out any blue that was showing, what amazing to me is how quickly they can make it a white out and I noticed that every time the jets start passing overhead, that the wind also picks up dramatically – Dane why does that happen, do they control the winds with these fly-bys, I mean the wind goes from zero to 30 miles-per-hours type changes? The little white stripes turn into great big blumes that cover the entire sky, I fugure that, that is why the wind picks up dramatically? Oh, one other thing, It's a movie I caught on TCM, I dislike the man for his beliefs but I do like the older movies…So I was watching "Cool Hand Luke" which was a 60's chain gang movie, staring one of my favorite actors of his time, Paul Newman, But the reason is I had to put in the VHS version because they had obviously editted that movie as well, which I already knew and know – is they're (HOLLYWOOD) is in on this as well, because they has inserted whited out skies on the TCM version and on my old VHS version there was nothing but beautiful blue skies, So someone had to sit there and edit all the sky shots to white them out..which is sad, I don't know how much they pay for a job like that, but ALL THESE OLDER MOVIES HAVE BEEN ALTERED!! The person who job that is to edit these older movies to have sky's that are whited out should be ashamed of him or herself for playing along with these evidently & visibly lies, how do you live with oneself after doing that type of work all day longs, do you realize the amount of frames it takes to edit just one of these all blue Sky's in technical color- as they prefer in TECHNICOLOR as they say in Hollywood! I was so mad about all these movies that are alter to say to the younger generations "SEE IT'S BEE LIKE THAT FROM BACK EVEN BACK IN THE 50"S – 60"S and Beyond, which is why I bring this up -AN ABSOLUTE LIE, AND MAKES ME SO ANGRY AND IT SHOULD MAKE OTHERS so anger TOO! Personally I could spit fire. But I'd rather thank you again Dane, because I wouldn't be able to educate the younger generation of these little lies that are esy to expose. Anyone who has old vhs machine should pull them out and play those older movies without the edited versions of the sky's and there are plenty of time to do so, and a quick way to prove a point. In fact I convinced so younger folks that were all in trouble when they the elite go to these great lengths to DISPROVE.                                                                                                                  

    • Dane Wigington says:

      Hello Joe, in answer to you question, yes, the aerosol operations effect atmospheric convection, that impacts surface wind. About the potential editing of olderfilms, though the climate engineering operations have been going on for over 70 years, it would not be surprising if those in power took the time and effort to perform the sort of edits you noted.

    • Bella_Fantasia says:

      We do see unaltered old TV shows from the seventies where the grass and trees look so green (even in the city) and the skies are really blue.  It's really so startling how colorful the world used to be.

    • Nina Olff says:

      Joe,

      I too have noticed that old westerns and other films that are on Netflix or TCM have white sky and my old VHS films don't.  Cool Hand Luke is a great film.  I love Paul Newman and his work…but we are still allowed to disagree and be civil, right?

  23. horsegirl says:

    Dane, despite the horror of this situation, forgive me for introducing humor as a teacing tool

    I keep hearing things like "Trump's mad because America…," "If Trump hears about [subject] maybe he'll…," etc.  All premised on the idea that we can take what any politician says at face value.

    With Reagan – if not previously – Hollywood and the White House were married.  Hollywood is now live time.  People need to get over politicians.  Realize they are actors.  Some convincing, some flaccid in performance, but they are acting.  Do not fall into the illusion that you can take what they say or their anger at face value.

    Joke:  Q – how can you tell if a politician's lying?

    A – Their lips are moving.

    Let that sink in deep.

    This is ALL scripted.  Deal with people whose autonomy and credulity is not categorically sold out.  That is where we will get action.

  24. Yuri says:

    Dane, I continue to spread the word with students and colleagues here at RPI in Troy, NY….the oldest engineering school in the English speaking world and quite close to GE–the birthplace of weather modification!  I continue to be amazed by the intentional disregard for obvious, observable evidence.  Today we are enjoying a rare day without induced cloud cover and spectral displays. 

    Thank you for your credible reports and unwavering dedication to raising awareness to this increasingly significant threat to humanity.  As an environmental scientist and bioprocess engineer, all I want to know is "why and who".  

    • Cynthia Cox/ The Elephant Underground says:

      What a brave academic soul you are Yuri!  Incredible that given your field at RPI, you can't seem to raise the alarm.  Yes, you are deep in the belly of the beast up there.

      The one place that I do not recall ever seeing the spraying is on the Big Island of Hawaii where of course, are located the world's premiere scopes.  Coupled with the volcanic ash that is a normal occurance, I guess their clout enables some escape locally.  Yet the landbased drift must have some impact but the scientists must care more about their paychecks and accept the skewed sceince that they practice.

      Wish we had more courageous scientists in academia like you my friend. 

    • Dane Wigington says:

      Hello Cynthia, just an FYI on Hawaii, if you search online you will find a number of anti-geoengineering groups there which are documenting considerable spraying and damage to ecosystems. Though your skies may look very different than some of the mainland spraying, the aerosol operations are in fact occuring. Thank you for helping us to sound the alarm Cynthia.

    • Lawrence Goodwin says:

      Greetings, Yuri, from the Saratoga Springs area! I'm grateful to know someone in the respectable Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute community has the courage to speak up. Many times I've wondered why none of our bright local minds seem to notice this madness in our skies (you must've looked up early in the morning; by late afternoon, Thursday, 1/5, I watched dozens of planes blot out the natural blue sky over the New York Capital Region before the fake cold and snow set in). With your scientific experience and knowledge, you're an ideal candidate for taking pictures of the localized spraying/zapping operations and then providing such evidence to local meteorologists at WNYT, News10ABC, CBS6, or Time Warner Cable News–though you'll probably slam into the same brick wall of silence that I already did. Maybe in greater numbers we can make a difference. It would be an honor to meet you some time. 

    • BaneB says:

      Yuri:  The first place to find the who is at the Pentagon, the Air Force and the Navy.  Next, a romp among the private contractors and corporations because they are the builders and the contractual facilitators.  Third, the university complex where so many of the "experiments" are brought into reality.  And last, and the true facilitators of the triad above, is the general population of "lithium" smothered brains that stay complacent in spite of the visually obvious threat literally   hanging over their heads.

      Why?  Don't look to "logic" for the answer….at least not the general popular linear concept we sheeple are inculcated with as what makes good sense.  No, one has to go back to the instigator, which is the economic and political matrix, and the need to control at all levels the collapsing status quo.  That is a "what" which is to add another "who" to the mix….the U.S. Congress, and the relevant committees, their pertinent agencies and departments, which have approved and funded this planetary "smother" operation for decades.  The desperation is in high gear because those paying attention observe the increased spraying operations.  

  25. cj says:

    Hi Dane,

    I have a question for you. I'm in Bavaria, Germany where they have been spraying like the dickens. I went outside in snow fall yesterday to walk to the grocery store. The snow fell on my face. I have had a very bad headache since. The snow felt like it was full of chemicals from all the toxic spraying. How toxic is the snow if it falls on your skin? Thank you & God bless all your courageous efforts! We are right with you in this fight.

    • Dane Wigington says:

      Hello cj, in any particular engineered weather event there is no way for us to know what elements may be present in the mix. The attached link will shed more light. FYI http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/engineered-snowstorms-what-are-they-spraying/

    • Chris says:

      Cj & Dane —- They have not been spraying nearly as much here in NW Florida. I mean it's like they have almost stopped! I would say that ever since I started researching and watching the skies back in 2010, 2016 was by far the least active here. Do you guys have any knowledge that could explain why? 

      I keep reading about all the trails being heavy all over the world, but I swear there is no mistake about it, they have slowed down like 80% here! (only about 20% as much as previous years)——-But one things for sure, our weather patterns here are about as screwed up as you could imagine! We have had tornados in the winter! Droughts then floods! Ice storms in Florida! Then Humidity so bad one can not stand to go out doors! Just now in December, it will be 27 deg. one night then 74 the next! ect…….. My dads 85 yrs old and he says he has never seen this kind of weather here.  

      But as for the activity slowing down here, what's funny is how the idiots out there that think all these trails are just normal condensation trails used to try to tell me, when I would mention how many thick trails were over my house everyday, that I must live in a heavy air traffic zone! haha! —  Now that I am telling them there are hardly no trails over my home now, they don't know what to say! — I guess all they would be able to say is, "oh well I guess plane tickets must be at an all time low for flying over NW Florida, or maybe the planes decided to waste more fuel and time by flying around my house now!." haha! ——

      Anyway but seriously, please let me know if you hear of others in NW Florida that think they have really slowed down?  Something has changed in their plans in my area. Maybe they are spraying at night? Idk? But I can still see many stars if they are? But I have noticed a foggy ring/halo around the full moon every time I see it.

    • Dane Wigington says:

      Hello Chris, though spraying may be more covert in some regions, but it has still continued at some level in almost all locations. In many cases it can be much less visible depending on atmospheric conditions and the level of the operation. Any bright trail you see behind a jet is in all likelihood a sprayed dispersion, the short bright trails that appear to dissapate are especially prevalent with the heat of summer. We have film footage of the shorter trails being turned on and off, this is not condensation. If your skies appear silvery white when looking toward sunrise or sunset, then the air is full of particulates. The horizon to horizon trails are only one aspect of the climate engineering insanity. FYI http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/the-contrail-lie/

    About six months ago I started watching the NASA live stream on Youtube.  The forecast for everyone everywhere is "cloudy".  Most land is not clearly visible, except occasionally.  I'd almost forgotten how upset I had been back then.  All I could say was, "It's all wrong."

      Bella_Fantasia, Thanks for the link. Good stuff to observe. Obviously somewhat unfiltered imagery. Did you notice all the microwave activity in the cloud cover? Holy smokes, I was a bit over whelmed by what was there in "real time". This is a good link for us all to pass on with a little education so one can understand what they are looking at. I tell folks to wonder what microwaves would look like in the sky. Then I ask them to watch for all the parallel lines in our skies. Or cloud formations that seem to be separated yet close. There too are lines that divide.

    It's so good to see all these posts as I don't feel so alone in these dark days. We are the ones who are aware but the overwhelming masses continue on with their blinders fixed. I fear that the intention of the agenda will be carried out as the cracks are now obvious on our precious earth. I miss taking groups stargazing deep into the Florida everglades where the light polution was the lowest. I can't help it but I'm now depressed every day. There is an unknown monster at the door. May the lord come soon and god bless all of you.

      Jeffery E Fish, Sorry bud, but the lord ain't coming until the 7th trumpet. Until then we are given more than "the count of three" (like a child) to shape up and do something for the good of the many. Don't you go asking for something that the rest of us are not ready for and will not give into. I have yet begun to fight!! Lord grant me that much. Remember the "pay it forward" movement. Cool movie but seems to have been cast to the side these days. To bad, that theory is what is the true fabric that weaves us all together.

    Hello To All Concerned Geo-engineering-watch Mates: 

    It's Joe Reporting From Philadelphia North, It's been an all out assault on this region, with constant Rain and obvious seeding  of the clouds, it fact you can hear the jets overhead at an obvious lower altitude then normal, they're choking off any sunlight what so ever, now today it cleared and stopped raining for the first day since the new year started. However they're calling  for more rain this coming days; In fact they're saying another four or five days of rain, which the lower level area's don't need anymore of and that is more rain, that has been noted. They are definitely doubling down afraid that Trump may change they're deployment of SRM – or they're GEM programs, so they're stepping up they're game, which is obvious to everyone. I hope with the strong people he is surrounding himself with, (NO YES MEN) guys that will say NO, they have strong wills of their own,  if it's not in the best interest of America and the American People. At least that's how I see it, I know people will say he's put guys in from Goldman & Sachs in their too, and I say – To catch a crooked deal you have to have someone who can Identify a crooked deal to begin with? Right?? I believe that NOT having a CIA briefing(s) every day is a good thing, less time to be Brainwashed by an agenda that's not been challenged by common sense, Right? If fact that seems to be his agenda right from the beginning – which is let's try and use some common sense instead of jumping in the deep end of the pool sort of speak, that's what the Mainstream Media have been doing all along, and they've been wrong 98% the time. Their rating have shown that places of this ilk will be the must trusted and valued source of knowledge, and you can see their over reaction to that growing strong hold, witch is too call that fake news when in fact it's the Mainstream Media that no one seems to trust anymore, based on their own surveys, and what does congress try's to do first days back, is to down play the strength of the ethic committees, there was an immediate outcry – even a tweet from president elect Donald Trump saying that this should be on the very last thing we should even thinking about with all these other important issues over all our heads literally. Which I felt an immense sense of relief from him even acknowledging the fact, let's look at other more important issues, We do need independent souses to watch what their doing!!   I wish everyone the best and to remind us all that this fight has just begun and needs much more coverage; and for heaven sakes, lets hope this year is the year that someone from the mainstream media will report on the obvious and shows that they have what it takes to care about more then their own pensions, their own communities , and has the ability to sakes things up with the truth. And says what needs to be said – TO HELL WITH IT!! And Just Say What Really Is Happening, that this is weather warfare pure and simple! Tyranny Pure & Simple, that's is the truth. Signing off and wishing everyone a safe and prosperous New Year to All !! Thank You Again Dane for allowing Such a Site!! I enjoy reading everyone's thoughts from this site.

    Capital Punishment: New Delhi’s Deadly Smog
    Unprecedented pollution in the capital speaks to the severity of India’s air pollution crisis.  By Soma Basu / December 27, 2016
    NEW DELHI – On October 31, New Delhi woke up to find it had become a gas chamber. The celebratory week of Diwali had ended and despite a 20 percent drop in firecracker sales, toxic pollutants hung heavy in the air, leading to the worst smog in the last 17 years. Several media reports compared the Delhi pollution with the infamous London smog. The Great London Smog of 1952 lasted for five days. Government medical reports estimated that 4,000 people died as a direct result of the smog and 100,000 more fell ill due to the smog’s effects. In New Delhi, however, when it was perhaps appropriate to conduct government surveys about the health impact of the smog, locals, including members of medical bodies and health workers, were forced to queue up in front of banks and ATMs because the government had demonetized the two most-circulated banknotes in India. Standing in long queues for an average of six hours, everybody forgot about the smog that lasted in Delhi for about five days, stinging the eyes and irritating the respiratory tracts of almost the entire population of 18.6 million, multiple times the population of London in 1952. The worst came when the air pollution levels spiked post-Diwali on November 2, due to weather conditions over the region. Two days after Diwali night, pollution levels reached alarming heights, with PM10 levels reaching a massive 999, more than 10 times higher than the permissible limit. The Indian Meteorological Department termed this the worst smog in 17 years. The Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi recorded the worst levels of smog on November 2, with visibility as low as 300-400 meters. New Delhi became a smokehouse with a thick veil of smog over it for five continuous days, imperiling the health of the residents who had too little time to react and too little information to brace against the catastrophe.

    • Mark in OZ -MN native says:

      Good link Susan! Here's another for China. South Asia is completely out of control with their industrial emissions and a large reason why the SRM programs are in place currently. These incomprehensible levels of pollution streaming into the skies and waterways will, if not stopped, certainly destroy the biosphere. The SRM programs we all observe are merely masking the severity of the underlying issues and reducing the time available to find a solution. The lid needs to be ripped off the whole 'denial' can and but quick.

      http://www.scmp.com/news/china/society/article/2059576/what-have-you-gone-through-photos-chinas-smog-covered-high-speed

      I'm sure you've seen this site (Earth NullSchool) where supercomputers process nearly real time data sourced from organizations that can be trusted.  Others may have not. There is so much fake news and propaganda ou there that most folks struggle to reach an informed position on what's really happening.

      https://earth.nullschool.net/#current/chem/surface/level/overlay=so2smass/orthographic=-277.62,19.75,255

      I've selected for the sulfur dioxide (SO2) but other measures like CO can be easily examined. Have a close look also at 'sea surface temp anomaly) to see  what all these atmospheric gases and particulates are doing to the polar ice caps! Note 'Earth' box is the menu and the orthographic map of earth can be spun and zoomed with your cursor.

      Having factual data can be very helpful in getting the word out re SRM. Enormous budgets are devoted to fear, uncertainty and denial programs by those who profit enormously from the sale of fossil fuels and coal–why Beijing is overwhelmed. It's astonishing that people can actually live here under these conditions although the cumulative, long term effects will most certainly be very bad for not just humans, but all life forms.

      PS We really appreciate your support of this site and the great work spearheaded by DW!

      Will Thomas, one of the first to publicly speak of this, informed us at a meeting years ago with his researched books that two summers in a row in London, the geoengineering was so extreme that both years the streets of London were filled with portable morgues due to the astronomical numbers of persons, particularly elderly, who were killed by it. He also had widespread testimony from nurses that at that time, app. 2002, the rate of elderly who were admitted to hospitals with non-life threatening emergencies left the hospitals dead from over medication.

    Just When You Thought it Couldn't Get any Weirder Dept news. I have noticed a couple of incidents of apparent doctoring/tampering with vintage TV shows and movies to include "aircraft trails " in some scenes.

    Most egregious was a Daniel Boone TV show from late 60s which had a diagonal aircraft trail shown clearly in the sky behind Daniel's head. Rest assured that a bonafide trail would have been quickly noticed and removed by editors. Just watching a Chuck Norris judo chop flick from late 70s which had a very similar diagonal trail in one scene. We will need to refer to archival videos in private hands to compare/ expose any such tampering.

    All out Geoengineered skies here in SoCal past two days. Crimson red sunset last night, arrival of monolithic "cloud thing" from Pacific this AM/ tanker fleet spraying leading edge.

      Hello SD, though it is hard to know what editing may or may not have been done to older films (as you correctly stated), it is important to remember that geoengineering has been going on since the mid 1940’s (though at a much smaller scale than today of course).

    We have had snow every day for 3 days here in central Idaho,right under one of the heavy spray areas on the maps you have posted. We are expected to get snow until next week,then turning to rain,with low temps just above 0. Most people that have lived in this area have noticed that the storm seems to be circling over us,blowing snow from the east,then changing the next day from the west. People are always commenting about how wonky our temperatures have been,from -20  below to 30+ in a days time. Not normal,and I capitalize on the opportunity to mention geoengineering,hoping to plant a seed.

      I recommend the app FlightRadar24.  Well worth the $3.99 for detailed information on commercial and private flights.  I will post some recent information I collected using this app that follows 2 planes flying directly above and below each other.  One was a commercial flight flying to Vermont, and the other (flying a few hundred feel below) was marked as "information not available".  But I watched as this plane laid out a trail as it passed Saratoga Springs.  Once it passed into the Adirondacks, it veered off and disappeared from the tracker.  Fun stuff.

      Hi, Steven: What a great post!!!!!  You encapsulated all that we feel about our present dire situation – and in an interesting, novel way.  It breaks my heart to see the upside-down cycles in nature.  On my small acreage in Shasta County, California, I had bird feeders placed and was rewarded by many, many birds – woodpeckers on the trees used to delight us all by their industrious attempts to find food – and beautiful mourning doves ate the corn on the ground placed for my chickens. All that is gone.  My great-grandkids don' t have the opportunity to see the beauty that once was, the fun of feeding the gifts that nature once gave us.  At the risk of sounding corny, many the tears I have shed over what these SOB's responsible for this destruction have done to our world.  Thank you so much for your excellent post.  Much good luck to you and all of us – and to Dane and Co.  What would we all have done without his counsel, the knowledge he imparts and his website that is an encyclopedia, in itself.  I know this post is too long, but I don't have Steven's talent for brevity. Sorry.  PS.  I still put out feed for the birds….hoping.

    • Steven says:

      Dear Virginia, You are so special and sacred to have on this earth. I like to think that my soul was meant for earlier times. But after reading your post I realize that it is not. If it wasn't for people like You, Dane, Myself and people like us, the Earth would already be gone. The people who did not grow up with and utilize the gifts given, don't know what they are losing. We are here because we care and love each other and all of the gifts that are so selfishly taken advantage of. Soon it will all be gone. It is up to the people that care to make a difference. It is up to Us to spread the truth to the next generation. I am afraid that even after an 'awakening', which will be manipulated to the core, people just wont care because they don't know what's missing. You teach your great grandchildren the Truth and Don't ever lose hope. God Bless You and Yours.

    • virginia says:

      Steven: Your kindness and warm reply to my post is so greatly appreciated and I return the compliments you so generously expressed to you, yourself.  I do no more than you or anyone who cares for Mother Earth does to lengthen whatever time is left to save the simple beauty that once was available to all.  You have given me inspiration to continue my meager efforts…so, a warm thank you to you.  May you and yours be blessed with good health and happiness always.

    I'm an amateur astronomer and rarely am I able to observe stars. The skies are sprayed day and night. I'm convinced that there is clearly more than just attempting to manage sunlight going on. These maniacs are attempting to change the entire biosphere on the planet.

    • BaneB says:

      Terror-forming?  I cannot help but consider sci-fi Hollywood flicks, such as Independence Day, as a "metaphor" for an "invasion" of Mother Earth.  Human terra-forming another world is very much under consideration….Mars.  If one wanted to seduce a brain-dead population into the process of subsumation of the natural environment, the first place to begin is the atmosphere.  Everyone breathes the atmosphere.  Except Artificial Intelligence.  Such an 'intelligence' would want to turn a natural world into an artificial habitat?  The time-spread between 1972 and 2016 is 44 years.  Those of us old enough (born 1945) with a historical memory can easily see the change and know the difference between then and now. Those born in 1972  might not recognize the takeover…….but these two pics of our planet if universally disseminated, would do much to confirm that the insidious Luciferians and their plans are a fact,  and there for all to observe.  These two images are priceless for what they expose.

    • Steve Thomson says:

      Hi Rhonda, I too am an amateur star-gazer, and have definitely noticed the degeneration of night sky clarity over the last 20 years. I had my trusty old 17-inch Dobsonian reflector scope out 2 nights ago, and was dismayed to find that what had seemed to be a fairly clear sky…. was in fact probably smeared by a uniform, very fine layer of particulates. This stealth stratospheric Gaussian blur filter must have drifted in from God-only-knows how many hundreds of miles away, as I saw zero spraying planes all that day here. Strangely, the obscuration only became apparent through the scope’s magnification…the smear was that fine-grain. Having spent 2 decades out under the stars, I can still say this was a new one on me. Hmmm….
      Correct me if I’m wrong, but the finer the particles, the longer they stays airborne, but then the easier they are ingested by living things, when it finally does come down. Ain’t out-of-control secret science wonderful?
      Maybe God has a planetary-sized atmospheric vacuum cleaner He will show up with some glad day. Radical solution, I know. Hahahaha. Oh wait a sec, didn’t the apostle Peter say something about “the heavens will pass away with a great noise”? (2 Peter 3:10)
      Aww, that’s just gotta be just a coincidence, eh?
      God bless you, and ALL the wonderful Geoengineeringwatchers!

    We've gotten So much rain and more to come, much more.  And, the air actually smells good!  I keep half wondering if they are putting "Fabreeze" in the air!!  I mean it actually does smell clean!  Moreover, the Weather Authority! keeps seeming not able to call the shots.  Have they lost control over their efforts?  Used to be until these storms that they'd announce the weather–today will be….and tomorrow…..Now saying this might happen, not clear yet, we'll have to see how this develops.  Seems almost shocking to hear it like it used to be!  And zero effort to hide the engineered crap anymore, any where.  It is in background shots everywhere!  Even on news sites.  Shows, everywhere.  Normal now, fully normalized or so they think, apparently!

    It has been so cold here so long that plants are dying that were not.  Plants that are used to our warmer climate.  Many plants doing odd things.  Like say roses blooming in this cold!  Very confusing.  Leaves everywhere, but my street trees leaves usually turn brown, then fall.  This year, they are a bright yellow and pretty.  Another first.  In 37 years.  One little twig of a new wanna be branch sprang leaves that turned red!  So surprised.  It is all very disorienting!  Judging by my was empty huge bird bath, under redwood yet, we got at least 2 inches of rain last night.  The birds are not going for it.  And just tons of snow in the Sierras.  Meanwhile, the world burns.  Occurs to me we need a TV show, called As The World Burns–as compared to the old soap one As the World Turns!  Seriously, we need media to put the truth out there, this geo-engineered crap is convincing, too convincing!  And hey, where are the musicians who could help us?!!

    The psychopaths that control everything and/or their order followers have cranked up the voltage on their weather warfare machines- the microwaves just keep on coming for longer and more frequent intensities. I can (hear) the frequency change in the ringing in my ears, a symptom of artificial EMF sensitivity. The weather whiplash continues as temps. plummet from above average to below average, and I swear, nearly every Wednesday for the past year they turn on the wind machine. If one is observant, patterns emerge.

    I happened to call OH EPA Radiological Safety Program's Mr. Zack Clayton (614) 644-3066 yesterday. I told him that EPA Radnet fixed radiation air monitor 508 in Toledo, OH had recorded gamma radiation readings between 1,000 Counts Per Minute(CPM) and 2,000 CPM January 2nd and 3rd, 2017. A count is one radioactive  decay. He asked if he could call me back, and did. Looking at the graph of recordings (approximately once per hour), he told me that was normal background levels of gamma radiation, with some spikes here and there. I told him the CPM seem to increase with precipitation, he told me that the rain being absorbed by the soil causes percolation of radon out of the ground, into the air. I asked him if I had a geiger counter, and the audible count was 1,000 CPM, that I shouldn't be alarmed, and he said ,"no." I don't know much about geiger counters, but if one was beeping a thousand times a minute, I wouldn't think that was normal.
    According to this manufacturer as printed on their flyer, normal background gamma radiation is 5-20 CPM.

    • MS P says:

      Just noticed 98 PM  off the coast of NJ. The reading had red alert around it. So it must have been higher? 100 CPM sets off alerts. It's slowly coming down now.

      3:05 PM it shot up to 116  CPM still alert red!

  46. Susan Ferguson says:

    Thank you, Dane. This is an excellent article. The pictorial evidence of “filtered” images designed to deceive is blatant, very convincing. The “stars would look fuzzier” he says…well, if you could see them at all!
    Here on the Olympic Peninsula WA, which is used night & day by the US Navy and the Growler (named for the loud noise they make) fighter jets as an official EW electronic war zone, I often long to see the stars — all of them. Just last night I was up around 5am, still black night here, and looking up at the sky sadly laughed at the handful of visible stars. It is in such moments that I miss New Zealand. In the seven years I lived there, I grew accustomed to seeing the vast thick canopy of stars that literally almost covers the entire sky from horizon to horizon on clear nights. Millions of stars would inundate my eyes, and my being. On warm summer nights, I would lie under the heavens and gaze up in humility and awe for hours. We will never see this in the northern hemisphere, until they stop suffocating our skies with toxic metals, that daily "milky haze" that now exists so obvious to the trained eye. We will therefore, as our planet moves through interstellar space like a ship, never see or feel our primordial interconnection with what we are made of. Earth is a magnet. We are made of electro-magnetic dynamic forces from the Galactic Core and the vastness of infinite Space, the subtle spectrum of waveform frequencies that pervades and permeates our Earth’s magnetosphere, down through her polar axis, and into our once beautiful bodies, sacred temples that require recharging from the blessed energies pulsed from these stars. We are now essentially cut off from the light of the heavens. Is this the stupidity of the blind – or intentional?

    • Rachel Robson says:

      Well said Susan.  Though intentional-the muck, that is, clearly stupidity rules the day and the night.  Berkeley always had fog back when and it could be hard to see the stars and if one did see them it was but a few.  Thank God I remember the stars from my past, heck even from nearly 10 years ago in the Sierras–I miss stars so much.  I believe they still 'reach' us despite the, uh, interference.  We are all star dust.  Lakota peoples believe we came from the stars.

    • Susan Ferguson says:

      Rachel Robson — Thank you! Yes, these energies from the stars must still reach us, but I would imagine not in their intended natural power. We are star dust indeed!

    It is Curious that the Vatican has a Large Telescope too. What's it's name? Lucifer!!!

    • virginia says:

      Gail: Hi. The etymology of the word Lucifer is really quite innocent, despite our associating it with the devil. The origin of the word is Latin.  Luc or lux means light.  Fer means bearing. So luc i fer means light bearing or morning star.  So, it is understandable that the Vatican would name their telescope light bearing or morning star.  We derive many words from luci – translucent, etc.  The feminine name Lucia is another.  But, I'm sure you knew all this.  Thanks.

  51. Rachel Robson says:

    Dane, This is interesting.  I remember long ago now, maybe 25 years? or less, not sure, but astronomers were complaining about lights on Earth interfering with being able to study the skies.  Even whoever in space was saying it was getting hard to see various Earth features due to the lights, especially in certain regions, like the US.  All those city buildings lit up all night, no one there, so not only wasting electricity, but interfering with observing space.  There were many images of what Earth looks like now with so much light blocking view.  Then, recently, I saw some graphics of space debris.  If one of the above Earth balls, it would be maybe a quarter of an inch all around Earth, and dense!  Some, alot, of this debris is paint chips, which supposedly, at space speeds, are extremely dangerous though tiny.  Plus, of course the bigger stuff we've all littered space with.  Back when I was first hearing about the light from Earth issue, maybe in National Geo, or a Science mag, geoengineering was going on I guess, but I did not know.  Could it magnify this light issue?  Bounce it back at us?  I'm not clear if this is saying bounced back into space, or at us.

    • Dane Wigington says:

      Hello Rachel, about your question, the reflective light scattering particles in the atmosphere "bounce" the city lights back down to the surface.

    Thanks for this, Dane. How deep is the insanity when we are facing the end of ALL life and all this Zender guy is concerned about the future of astronomy????  Excuse me? Screw you, Zender. I am fired up today as the cataclysm is so obvious around me. Everyone is so sick. The medical community is raking in billions on these geoengineering caused sicknesses and it is absolutely criminal that they refuse to connect the dots and come clean with the suffering public. People of all ages and income are affected. More women are being told to get down to sea level as they are literally dying at the higher altitudes. This is an observable and recordable phenomena and NO ONE is talking about it. Screw you , doctors. And the meteorologists. And the fake news casters. And especially the political among us. Your karma is coming to get you and that is guaranteed. You'll be lucky if it is not followed by an anger lynch mob.

    In the mean time we have gotten a couple feet of "snow". Not a snow flake to be seen (been looking, horseman). Now it rained all night on several feet of snow. The brittle trees are weighed down and electrically outages are coming for sure. Removing any snow now will be brutal if not impossible. The road conditions  – left from the Geoengineering programs, are the worst and least predictable EVER.  What will you do today to change the course we are on? Doing nothing is not an option. 

    • virginia says:

      Hi, LS:  Hang in there and know that all of us feel the same way.  You ask 'What will you do today to change the course we are on?"   As an example and although it would seem like just a small effort, it may open the eyes and minds of those who are walking zombies.   One of my young relatives drives I-5 (California) three times a week.  I supplied her with a batch of Dane's geo engineering brochures which she carries in her over-sized lady's purse.  She makes it a practice to stop often at restaurants and other places en route and while there takes a 'trip' to the lady's room (and men's, if no one is around).  She leaves at least two brochures on the counter top.  How effective this is or how receptive  are those who either pick it up or at least look at it, we don't know, of course; however, the bright and illustrative brochures cannot but spur some to pursue or question what the heck it's all about – hopefully.  As I said, a small gesture, but every effort helps.  Good luck and stay healthy.

    • 'a' simple horseman says:

      LS, glad to have turned your observations up a notch or two. I've got about 10 inches on the ground here and like yourself, not a snow flake to be found, anywhere! I wrote earlier about icicles. seems the only ones I get are those that are comprised from the frosted dew point. Dew is a very important factor in wildlife. Like Dane has commented, there isn't much dew these days. I worry for when the season turns back into where the temps do not reach the dew point.

  55. Duane Spindler says:

    Who is paying for all this madness. Why are the people used as guinea pigs again? It boils down to who benefits from the process. Follow the money as they say. The chemicals come from somewhere. The planes have to be flying through radiation that's making it to the atmosphere. I hope justice is done to the people who carry this burden of murder.

    • Enlightened Patriot says:

      Two things spring to mind. People like Bill Gates are known to propose, and support, world de-population, What better way than with airborne, carcinogenic toxins, damaging vaccines and brain/lung disease-causing metals like aluminium oxide, proved to have been sprayed?

      Also, people like Monsanto, cashing in on their ability to provide aluminium-resistant strains of GM crops/seeds whilst natural species of crop are dying from these poisons.

      "Who controls the food supply controls the people" someone famous once said. And makes a load of dosh, I would add.

      Yes, every single largely accesable magazine, books, callendars, etc. are PRINTING PICTURES WITH MODIFIED SKIES, indeed in order to 'erase' our memory about the once normal atmosphere.. What can we do against those who govern, have weapons and decide about the paths of our lives almost every second??? I have no answer to that question, unfortunately. There was something like French Revolution once in human history, but that required COMMUNITY, which right now does not even exist, in USA, in the entire world. People are divided and separated through their IPhones and mobile devices….
