Geoengineering Watch Global Alert News, August 17, 2019, #210


Dane Wigington

Heat and haze continues here in Northern California, while plastic particles are being found in the air from Colorado to the Alps, and even in the Arctic. Weather all over the world is becoming rapidly more erratic and destructive. What factors are playing a part in the complex weather/climate equation? How can we know what we are not being told by any “official” source? Who gets to decide what is “real” news, and what is not? What happens when governments know they can no longer hide dire unfolding scenarios from the public? The latest installment of Global Alert News is below.

The totality of converging challenges that we collectively face is daunting. Can we yet make a difference for the better? Waking populations to the wider horizon is imperative, that task will require the effort of all who are awake and aware already. Share credible data from a credible sourcemake your voice heard, make every day count.

Geoengineering Watch wishes to express our most sincere thanks to Jonathan O'Quinn in Greenville, North Carolina, for his ongoing efforts to raise awareness of the climate engineering operations.

Geoengineering Watch wishes to express our most sincere gratitude to Maciej Kocialkowski for his tireless work toward raising awareness on the critical issue of climate engineering. The geoengineering awareness booths in the photos below were set up at the Lake Morton Library, in Lakeland, Florida (8/13/19), and at the Mid County Library in Port Charlotte, Florida (8/17/19).

Our thanks to Mike Torrence for continuing with his efforts to raise awareness at the Tonasket Farmers Market in Washington State (8/15/19).

This week's outreach booth is at the Earl Warren Showgrounds, Santa Barbara, California, and is shown below. My most sincere and continuing gratitude to the Gem Faire exhibition organizers for facilitating and setting up this very effective booth in every week's Gem Faire location. The schedule for upcoming Gem Faire events is HERE. A booth will be at all events, thanks to the steadfast support of Gem Faire.

    Freak lightning storm in southern Poland likened to "terrorist attack"

    Couldn't have any connection to a highly ionised atmosphere could it?

    Fire in Belle Vista California.  Is that Danes area ?  On my god.  Im praying for ya…

    Hello all!

    dear all

    can't stop coming back to this site

    one of the few places on the planet where people think for themselves and really understand what is going on

    love you all like a family!! what a wonderful man you are dane for putting us all in touch and feeding us with sense and purpose

    looked at rachel carsons book a silent spring – pub 1962, which i haven't looked at in many a year

    front quotes – albert schweitzer  

    'man has lost the capacity to foresee and forestall. he will end up by destroying the earth'

    who is e.b.white? – will look him up but he said (when?)

    'i am pessimistic about the human race because it is too ingenious for its own good. our approach to nature is to beat it into submission. we would stand a better chance of survival if we accommodated ourselves to this planet and viewed it appreciatively instead of sceptically and dictatorially'

    although maybe ingenious should be replaced with stupid!!! but i get what he means

    clouds – noticed as a child, cloud build up until it reached a place (ozone layer?) and then went flat (anvil cloud?) and would often produce a storm

    ah sweet storm – sweet air – the smell of nature clean

    now clouds roll along – in PARALLEL LINES! – and the flat surface is at the bottom of the cloud – what is that??

    karma – have heard that one goes through a life learning and then comes back to do more learning each time – reincarnation- yes?

    have been told that each time come back should be easier

    but if one is wiser then surely each time will be more painful cos one can see and understand more?

    now for me, life is very painful – emotionally and intellectually – maybe that is how it is meant to be – so one doesn't want to come back any more and one's intrinsic energy is used up the last time by living as a good person (other humans sure suck the life out) – but it is surely a great struggle to maintain ones equinimity in the face of being a conscious human amongst humans, especially at this moment in time

    you keep my feet on the ground – thank you all for your love and care to me and all the rest of this nature

    To ALL my friends I haven't met, yet. I wish you all could experience an afternoon of spreading awareness like I did today. To my friends I have met, you know where I'm coming from. If I were a comic, I'd say I had 2 two hecklers in the audience today. Separate times from one another, but both tried their best to shake the folks behind the booth. In respect to them both, each older than myself, they conveyed their convictions in a stern manner. I like that. It's respectable. At least they stand for 'something'. In the horse world, when a horse is getting froggy on you, it's trying to tell you something. I have always found it best to let that horse run around, kick and buck, reel it's head around in contempt and be as animated as it deems fit to "get the message across". You let them have their say and when they have got it all out of their system, they will walk right up to you and ask, "what now?" Works every time. Usually a soft touch will due and the horse is now giving me its focussed attention. Our hecklers are no different. Both hecklers today did their best to be themselves. One was retired academia with a British accent and the other a retired army special opps. Being "compartmentalized" has lead them astray. Even before I became an activist, I always enjoyed seeing people step outside of their box. Especially the grizzled ones(grin). They can become our biggest allies. At least their not afraid to speak up and talk face to face.

    This is a 3 day activist week for me. Today the farmers market and the next 2 days I will be parked down at the local Garlic Festival. It feels good that I was invited to be there. I know I will cross paths with folks that have the seed of awareness growing in their minds. My friends that I have met always ask good questions. The festival is at the city park on the Okanogan river. I've heard good things about the festival but have never attended. It's a small town around here. A hit and run encounter like most folks have doesn't happen here. It's as if I have created an assembly of students. Frankly, I couldn't have wished for more with what I have created in my region. I think this weekend I will surpass 85 set ups and take downs of the booth I made in my front yard with left over building materials. It has stood the test of time and will continue to do so. Honestly, I can't think of what else to do?…!   "We" are literally out of time to fix or preserve anything. "It's now or never". What's in your wallet?…..

    Love and strength to ALL

    • Jonathan O'Quinn says:

      Beautiful. Thank you for all that you're doing on behalf of this movement. I'm taking the day off on August 30th and plan to handout geoengineering watch materials at East Carolina University and Pitt Community College in Greenville North Carolina to all who will accept them, as long as the supplies last. I shut up a banner in my front yard by the driveway with a waterproof container beside it with geoengineering watch material so that people can stop by and take free materials whenever they wish.

      Your approach is very respectful when you have hecklers. I too have learned never to argue with these people. But rather, just to be polite and respectful and left materials do the talking for you.

    • 'a' simple horseman says:

      Jonathan, Thank you for the kind words. It means a lot to me. Those two hecklers yesterday really had my friends backed into a corner. Both of them arrived while I was away from the booth. Each time I arrived just in the nick of time and placed myself in between my friends and the assault being inflicted. Truth backed up by confidence and conviction wins every time. I'm sure I will cross paths with them in the future.

      Jonathan, I like your banner and flyer box set up in your front yard. If I had a street side home I'm sure I would have the same in my yard. I like the growing number of folks deploying banners at their own residences. It is good to know that the banners I have donated are being utilized. Never stop paying it forward.

  6. Andy says:

    I get it that fires are a natural cyclical process within the environment but this is just too much –

    Whilst there is probably little doubt that illegal logging practices have had a large impact, especially given the recent governmental *leeway* regarding the seemingly blasé attitude of the current Brazilian government towards the Amazon ecosystem, is this the only factor in play here?

    I mean the massive percentage increase in fires just over the last year – can they all reasonably be attributed to *mismanagement*…? Just as in the Arctic, is it not a plausible possibility that some other fundamental element is also in play, ie Geoengineering?

    I presume that as the consequences of decades of reckless environmental manipulation become increasingly manifest tptb will use any and all excuses possible – going to ever greater lengths to construct semi-viable explanations to if not smooth the public concern then certainly to blindside it with scapegoats and fakery.

    Of course there are multiple factors here. 

    But surely it doesn't require a professorial IQ to see that a massive part of the equation is being ignored when figures are given like in this above link: an 85% increase in fires in the Amazon over the same time last year.

    I know that shouting the obvious at people gets nowhere but seriously, how loud do the band have to play for people to finally *hear the tune*? 

    • penny waters says:

      after a few days of thinking about the horror of burning amazon and for the tribal people there, it seems blindingly obvious that this is just a repeat of what us humans have been doing for thousands of years.

      i understand that the sahara and the middle east were wooded places – now gone – farmed out – too many cattle – too many people – no trees no water

      and what about the cities left high and dry in afganistan mountains – was it 6 cities, all one after another, who had water channels for the winter snows to run into the cities during the summer – thousands of years ago

      along with the big brother people who recently came down from the mountains in s america to tell us – little brother – that their cities were no longer being supplied by their winter rains – its on the internet somewhere

      it wouldn't take long for this tiny overpopulated island to burn. my garden is as dry as a tinder box – and we have peat too – and we've had fires – young man recently sentenced to prison for starting a fire up north whilst watching two fires that the firemen were trying to put out

      why do i keep feeling more insane as i watch people in their death throes???

      or is it all the others?

  7. Sandy Patrus says:

    I feel the situation gets more grim by the day.  You would not know it if you looked around my neighborhood here in Santa Fe, NM  because the trees are very green from the amount of rain this summer.  Even though the pinon pines started off early summer with needle scale on about 50% of them, they at first dropped a bunch of needles, but are now doing good.  We found a natural way to get rid of them other than harmful pesticides.  All you have to do is power wash them with water.  My husband being the caretaker, is learning more eveyday about how to take care and trim these trees.  In this homeowners association they are all about keeping the trees healthy and free from insects.  It is very green here, even the ponderosa pines are doing well.  I have at least 5 different species of birds around my house, all singing daily except for the hummingbirds who wiz by over your head fighting for the feeder.  There are 2 species living in the trees outside my yard.  My flowers are doing great this year as well as my vegetable garden.  The hummingbird moths are always on the flowers.  I even have a gofer who just moved into one of my flower gardens. Not good, but at least it is eating the roots of a weed, which I thought was some kind of ground cover because it flowered, but found it is a weed.  At least in that garden most of the flowers are in pots and the gofer doesn't seem to bother them.  I am just worried it is going to get the the section that does have flowers planted in the ground.  Gofers like to eat the roots of plants. The bees are abundant on my Russian sage…and I periodically see a large gorgeous monarch butterfly flutter through my yard.  This gives me hope that not is all lost yet.  A baby rabbit ate all the lettuce in my garden, but they have to eat too.  We have had record highs here too, but enough rain to off set it.  Of course seeing all this green makes the people here doubtful that the chemicals in the sky from all the spraying raining down on us daily is causing any harm.  So, no wonder they don't believe me when I try to talk about the geoengineering going on in our skies.  

    • penny waters says:

      weed is an anglo-saxon word meaning small herbacious medicinal plant

      food and medicine (herbal obviously) have the same origin

      what a wonderful description of nature – maybe not all is lost!!

  8. penny waters says:

    can't go out – only morning and evening – too hot middle of the day

    trees are dying but especially the ones at the bottom of the garden that were polluted by neighbours with their bleached filth! one tree is leaning over their garden and is in danger of falling – but they won't talk to me – what can i do?

    apples, as they are ripening, are rotting on the trees. never seen that before!

    resident birds are being gobbled by rapters who have taken up residence here, presumably cos there are (getting less) so many, and none elsewhere

    very little food for birds apart from what i put out!!

    dear dennie – i have had to give up on many people this year because of attitude

    i believe if one has to keep repeating oneself then they are not listening, people don't listen – not really listen – to others

    has always been the same

    was in the womens movement – wasn't about becoming like men or having a go about men, it was about what women were for, if not a wife or mother – defined by relationship with another

    now every one and their sister is flapping their gums about it! instead of talking about it and listening

    had a hard time then – no-one listened! – have a hard time now – no-one listens!

    what i found out was that, simply put, men hunt and women gather – tribal like – woman were the plant people

    i am ashamed to be a woman these days – especially as it seems women don't seem to want to take responsibility for their behaviour and attitude

    stop having children!!

    numpties, numbskulls – i'm alright jack

    but they are not and they don't know it – nuts it is.

    we now have fracking in this country – up north and south of the thames

    so what little water we have is to be used by fracking companies and polluted

    that's apart from the water that mostly eastern europeans use when they wash cars. all cars are sparkling here – apart from mine – usually wash it just before i have to get an mot – that's once a year hahaha – i am a scruffy bugger – and i don't care!!!

    have turned many young people onto the environment but they still follow the party line – don't think for yourself

    now the amazon is burning, indonesia and more – this is becoming more than i can stand

    we must leave the gravy train of europe – hope boris will do what he has said. then he will go to the country for an election and he, hopefully, will then be slung out. he doesn't have any idea what this country needs – not sure anyone does

    i'd like a go – for a year – but they'd shoot me hahaha

    seriously, sad is such an inadequate word for how i feel about our present and future

    much love to all and try to keep safe 


    • Jonathan O'Quinn says:

      I empathize with what you were saying. When someone is presented with material for information that contradicts their deeply  held core beliefs, they often go into a state that is known as cognitive dissonance. When they're in that state, you cannot do anything with them other than to respectfully leave some materials with them that they may read in the future and let them go.

      I think the important thing is to continue doing, in love, what you feel led to do, regardless of how many people or how few people appear to listen to you. I do agree with dane that the printed materials are much more effective and making the points he wishes to make then my trying to explain it in my own terms. Even the pictures are highly effective, because what it's doing is imprinting an idea upon their subconscious mind. Therefore, when they see those chemical trails in the sky in the Future, No Matter What, they will know what they are and they will not be able to get rid of that image in their mind. That itself is a scene that may grow and bear much fruit in the future. We don't always know what fruits the seeds that we sow May one day bear. But I believe it is important to always do our best, I left the consequences of those actions fall where they may. Be encouraged, and keep up the good work.

  9. Ross says:

    Why the heavy aerosal geoengineered skies today in Carmichael Ca today ?  Why some days and not others ?  Are they stopping the rain steering the weather or jet stream.  The Sun is very intense just penetrating heat.  Before today the weather was nice the last couple days.

    • Bella_Fantasia says:

      Hi Ross, sometimes it helps to look at the Jet Stream map, but not always.  Today 8/22 it looks like the US is in a void.  Everything happening seems north of the continental US and south of Alaska.

      At least the map today shows some indication of a 'stream' even though there are individual segments.  Other days the map is thoroughly alarming, with just a few chunks and blobs with no 'stream'.

      Overall, the Jet Stream is hacked and broken, without any doubt. Nothing at all like the weather reader's graphics.

  10. Inge Perreault says:

    Harvard Scientists are highly overrated and in general I find lack common sense yet exhibit an amazing arrogance. I used to live in an area where a lot of Harvard professors and/or graduates spent the summer and environmental thought does not enter their minds. Since I lived there year-round for a few years I made it a point to collect trash and keep the beaches clean placing the garbage in front of one particular summer-home owned by a Harvard graduate whose son attended Harvard as well into a wooden boat that served to "beautify" the beach-area placed into the sea-grass and Rugosa. At the end of the season I watched in amazement as Harvard-educated father and son dumped everything back on the beach and carried the wooden boat into the garage.I could barely believe what I was seeing. I have a question for Dane. What does the number 7 mean if a red large vessel without any other identification passes by my window to pick-up a self-propelled floating HAARP platform? I retired in the Azores and after the platform was here outside the harbor for a full week and then picked-up by the aforementioned vessel. No flag, no identification just the number 7 on the bow. A former firefighter I know told me that during his carreer he was instructed to never go near a burning object with the number 7 but get away from it as far as possible. Is it nuclear powered? I would appreciate an answer and by the way, since that HAARP platform was here the weather has not been like it used to be.

  11. Black Cat Italy says:

    Report from Italy.  As usual, when it is the Italian holiday (of all of August) we have pure blue, cloudless skies because people might notice the spraying while lying on the beach!

    This week has been unbearable. The heat takes your breath away at times and burns into skin.  We have had to stay indoors most of the time.  Temperatures this week in the SHADE outside our house were:  Sunday 11th 106F at 11 am which became what I believe is the hottest we have had this year – 110F in the shade of the pergola. The pavement outside front door in the sun registered 167F(67.1C). Monday 12th saw the same temperatures.  Even at 4 p.m. it was still 108F in shade.  Brick paving at rear registered 134F (56.9C).  The temperature was still 92F at 7.30 pm. Sitting outside is impossible and to drive to go shopping with no air conditioning in the car -unbearable.  For weeks now we have had mid day temperatures that don't dip below 102F.  At night, it is not easy to sleep with temperatures still at 80 or 90F. It is lucky that we live in a stone house that is cool when all windows and doors are kept shut!

    The trees and plants are suffering terribly and stopped growing. Our almond tree looks really sick and only has a few leaves left.  My husband went to pick a green pepper from our neighbour's garden. The peppers were literally cooking on the plants and going white and soggy!  Earlier on, we had strawberries cooking on the plants.

    A couple of Jehovah's witnesses appeared at the front door. I said look at the temperature! All they could say was "well, its August!"  Any other time I would have launched into what was happening with geoengineering but I just wanted to get in and shut the door.  They just think the heat is normal for August but the intensity IS NOT and no one seems to care.  The sea is like a hot bath and I saw only one sea gull and two tiny fish. It is sterile looking. They continue to over-fish the sea taking every tiny fish and using them as "frittura". We refuse to buy baby fish but no one else seems to care.  

    I was disgusted to see this week a Rod and Gun Club in British Columbia having a "Terminator competition". They are awarding points to each wild animal to kill it (coyote, raccoon, wolf, foxes etc). There will be a grand prize for the person killing the most with money as a prize. This is terrible and should not be allowed to go ahead.  Then we have children being encouraged to kill animals and awarded points or money (this is happening in Australia too). What is going on?  Lions being bred for "canned trophy hunting". Cubs taken from their mothers at 3 weeks and foreigners paying huge amounts of dollars to so called "hunt" and kill the animals that are in a fenced area and cannot escape.  I am often in tears to hear of the terrible treatment of animals across the globe for man's greed.

    May be this is all designed. They know that food is going to be scarce and so "let's kill the animals so that it is only humans are left to feed off what is left on the land".  

    I would say that President Trump was exposed to Chloropyrofos – something certainly happened in his development!   I think that that pesticide is also linked to Parkinson's disease too.

    We are all headed to "hell in a hand-basket".

    The only good news I can report this week is that we have a family of Moorish Wall Geckos behind the window shutters on the outside of the house. It is great to watch them in the evening catching a few flies. And we have a couple of large Hummingbird moths that come to eat the nectar from the flowers in the evening.  Its seeing things like this that help us keep going.

      dear black cat from italy

      hallo from a little further east in essex uk

      yes, tis the beauty of nature that still survives, that fills me with joy and astonishment

      and that includes the beauty of humans who feel as humans should  

      and who feel disgust at our sleeping depraved brothers and sisters who in their foul way fill our world with ugliness

      i understand that the family of the president of usa made their money from drugs and prostitution

      background is all!!

      coming from poor london folk who have seen the excesses of the rich here, i feel honoured to have the knowledge that money and stuff means little

      the meek shall inherit the earth – how i wish that were so!!

    • Sandy Patrus says:

      Black Cat Italy,  Hi!  What part of Italy are you from if don't mind me asking?  We want to go there in two years to celebrate our 50th anniversay, which is actually next year, but now our two kids and their families want to join us and won't have enough saved to go until the following year.  We spent the first two years of our marriage in Naples when my husband was in the Navy.  This was always our dream to go back someday, but from what you report, it sounds like things are worse there than here in the states.  I figured at the rate this planet is heading towards it's 6th extinction, we better go and make it our last family vacation.  And since the ozone layer is depleting as fast as it is, who knows if we will even be here.  I get so depressed just thinking about what lies ahead for the future for all mankind.  All the brainwash people just think about who the next president is going to be.  For me it is having my family near and enjoying our time together.


    • Dennie says:

      We keep hearing how "the meek shall inherit the Earth," but looks to me like the only ones ever controlling everything here are the most aggressive, abusive, devoid-of-feelings heartless selfish narcissistic assholes you could never imagine in your wildest nightmares.  Well, there's nothing wrong with the "meek" acquiring a backbone and speaking their truth to what's been passing for "power."  

    • Dennie says:

      Trump had a domineering demanding father who made him basically kiss his "holy ring" and strategically withheld affection.  Obama and Clinton were essentially fatherless boys– what's going on here?  Who finds these people? Presidents are selected, not elected, said F.D.R.  

    • penny waters says:

      cannot tell you how that makes me feel!

      hell in a hand basket indeed

    • Bella_Fantasia says:

      Dear Joseph,

      I am afraid to feel how this makes me feel.  For so many reasons I do feel sure the Earth will end in Fire.  I'll steel my emotions with data to blunt the sadness and thoughts of just one tragic death by fire, multiplied by billions.

      From various sources:


      "Brazilian researchers say fires raging in the Amazon have reached their highest pace on record, as illegal loggers burn vast areas of rainforest to clear land for mining and cattle grazing. Brazil’s National Institute for Space Research says satellites have detected some 74,000 fires in Brazil so far this year — a more than 80% increase over the same period in 2018. There are fires raging in neighboring Bolivia, as well, where some 2,000 square miles have burned. The fires have sent massive plumes of smoke across much of South America, turning day into night in São Paulo, 1,700 miles away from the Amazon Basin."

      President Jair Bolsonaro: “Regarding the fires in the Amazon, I’m under the impression that it could have been set by the NGOs, because they had asked for money. What was their intention? To bring about problems for Brazil.”

      "Indigenous people used social media to document how illegal loggers are setting fire to their territories. This is a woman named Célia, a member of the Pataxó indigenous community, speaking in a video that went viral across Brazil this week."

      Célia: “Look what they’ve done to our reservation. For two years we’ve been fighting to preserve this land, and now those troublemakers come here and set fire to our village. As if it were not enough, the Vale mining company kills our river, our people, our source of life, and now they’ve come and set fire to our reservation. We won’t stay quiet! Tomorrow we will close the road, and we want the media to defend us!”

      "Meanwhile, wildfires continue to rage in Alaska, where a thick blanket of smoke has darkened the skies over Anchorage. July was the hottest month ever recorded on Earth, when temperatures in Alaska averaged more than 58 degrees Fahrenheit — about 5.5 degrees above historic averages. Elsewhere, fires raging in the Canary Islands forced 8,000 people to evacuate. In Siberia, more than 21,000 square miles of forest have burned so far this month. There have even been large-scale wildfires in Greenland, which recently experienced its largest single-day ice melt in history."

      And a photo from Siberia that doesn't seem real.

    A couple of observations:

    One, Google has gone out of their way to make GeoengineeringWatch disappear.  That puts into stone the fact Dane is a truth teller & seeker. Period!  When they're about the business of ignoring and/or discrediting someone, you must be on to something.  Aside from the fact that all Dane does is spit out facts!

    Two, the trees aren't well as I've said before.  They seems to do much better when they are in groups because that provides some protection from the ultra violets and the toxins raining down on them. Trees completing exposed are faring much worse.  In general, there are many more dead trees alone and in groups.  Apparently not enough to draw attention from the masses just yet, but at the pace I'm seeing it should become markedly obvious in a year or 2.  Then again, never underestimate the capacity of people to be totally unaware of their surroundings.

    Third, ( and this one troubles me ),  publications I trust…Libertarian sights such as LewRockwell, post opinion pieces that say climate change is bogus. Never mind climate engineering.  This tells me there is an enormous hurdle in terms of …..I can't even find the appropriate word.  They post on Sept 11, false flags, vaccines, the pharmaceutical industries, etc……but have trouble with climate engineering???  Maybe they feel they have a slot for an underground bunker waiting for them if they keep their mouth shut.

    Four, Dane…'re a good man!  And I'm not blowing smoke.  You've gone much further against so much resistance than anybody on this topic.  Bless you!  I'm sad to admit I would have given up much sooner.  As it is I've pretty much accepted this as our fate.  I've been in people's ears for 20 years.  Hasn't gotten me anything except a hermit's lifestyle.  ( I'm not fun at cocktail parties LOL ) The vast majority don't want to hear it!  The few that will hear it, won't take action.  At this point I'm focused on my & my wife's souls. 

    I'm brought back to something I heard years ago.  No matter how much he knew & how much he tried, Noah, in the end, only saved his family.  Which ain't necessarily bad.  Words to the wise.



  13. Bella_Fantasia says:

    In the last week or so high temperature records have been broken around Alaska and within Anchorage, our largest city. Both day time high temperatures were overtaken and one night time high was surpassed.  My thermometers have consistently surpassed those temperatures they report, no surprise there. They were talking 70's F and it was much closer to 80 F and sometimes a little over 80.

    Then the huge winds started two days ago, and temperatures sure dropped (with help from our enemies).  Don't you know it was 40F last night.  Wouldn't you know that the winds reignited the fires all over the State.  The peat in our soil can smolder permanently.

    This afternoon the smoke from the Kenai peninsula rolled in looking so much like fog. The nearby mountains have disappeared.

    It's worth considering the role of peat globally.  Parts of Indonesia have peat 60 Feet deep in some places.  Deforestation for palm oil or timber dries the peat out, making it much more flammable.  The devastating fires from 2015 are probably still burning in Indonesia.  Not a surprise, but an extraordinary tragedy.  My heart breaks for all the Life there.  This, from a 2016 article:

    "On 40 days last fall, wildfires in Indonesia released more greenhouse gas than the entire United States economy."

    "The conflagrations, according to conservationists, threaten one-third of the world’s remaining wild orangutans, as well as the nation’s highly endangered clouded leopards, sun bears, Sumatran tigers, rhinos, and elephants. But the impacts of the fires spread far beyond the burning forests and peatlands."

    It isn't just Borneo and Sumatra.  They are some of the places that the most savage end-game capitalism has ruined beyond the comprehension most of us are capable of knowing without doing the research.  Madagascar is another.  Both the environment and the native peoples have been destroyed.  Please read essays by the venerable Andre Vltchek for the true picture.  It has become his mission in life to tell these devastating stories.

    It isn't just the palm oil plantations, but please, please try not to buy anything containing palm oil.

      I have a long-time friend and colleague who married a guy who was an "Army brat," meaning his parents were military and they moved around from base to base.  She described him as having been a "hippie" in high school and after he left school, with all that implies…. He's in his 60s and works as a waiter to supplement his daily bicycling habit (at least 3 hours a day riding out on the roads…).  Once when I called her to make a lunch date, he intercepted the phone call with a lot of questions, demanding that I explain, "in my own words (as he said)," exactly what it is that I'm seeing overhead.  Okay, so, Mr. Outdoors Cyclist, don't you ever look up and NOTICE the weather, because if you're out there cycling for hours and hours and hours on end, day after day after day, you had better jolly well be paying attention to incoming weather (wtf??)….. Well, I said I would be much better able to help him understand what's going on right over our heads every day if I shot him the link to this site as he was essentially asking me to explain chemistry, research, classified military programs, Congressional dealings and policy, water, soil, snow and other testing and a whole lot more, and then explain the "why" of all of these programs (WTFagain!!!).  My friend (now his wife) very often replies back to me in an argumentative tone demanding to know WHO is doing this and why, like it's just one entity, whenever I send her the link to a posting here.  I never imply it but I do have to explain to her when she asks these elementary questions, and she invariably shoots me texts saying that "I AM NOT STUPID!!!!"  after I've explained something to her, the same things, for about the sixth and seventh times….Well, okay, if you're actually NOT stupid, then don't behave like it.  Let's try "willfully blind" next time, because you ARE that whenever you've been informed and then promptly "forget."  Recently she went on about how something in the August 10 Global Alert News is not "scientifically verifiable," while not mentioning what it was to which she was referring (..!!!). Well, I won't even touch something like that, except to text back that she has some 'splainin' to do.  I mean, if you're going to make a statement discrediting something, then the onus is on YOU to back it up with verifiable proof.  Long story short, I texted back (when we should really be having an in-person conversation about this and not stupidly goddamned TEXTING sound bites while attempting to have what should be a serious conversation on the topic, for God's sake….!!! That's ANOTHER story…) that it's a complex subject best approached by rational adults who have a genuine interest in learning about something which they may not understand, and why should I think that this subject is anything other than low on the list of all-time conversational topics?  Like with any other subject, concerning the motivation to learn, it's a matter of INTEREST.  Period.  These are the people who question everything and believe nothing, then scream at you "I. AM. NOT STUPID!!!!!It's like trying to recite Shakespeare to a liver fluke.  Moral of story:  DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME ON REPEAT OFFENDERS– TAKE YOUR KNOWLEDGE OF THE SUBJECT MATTER AND MOVE ON TO THE ONES WHO SHOW A TRUE INTEREST.  AND DON'T OVERWHELM THEM WITH EVERYTHING ABOUT GEOENGINEERING RIGHT OFF THE BAT.  That would be like trying to give a first-grader thirteen years of math lessons in one short sitting– sheesh!!!!!  PEOPLE, THINK BEFORE YOU SPILL YOUR PEARLS OF WISDOM AND DO NOT WASTE THEM ON THE EDUCATIONAL EQUIVALENT OF PRIONS!!!!

    It's Snowing Microplastics In The Arctic

    Tiny plastic fibers were found across two dozen locations in the Northern Hemisphere, including remote Arctic ice floes, the remote Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard, and the Swiss Alps. The snow in the Arctic – often considered one of the world's last pristine environments – contained up to 14,400 particles per liter, while snow in parts of rural Bavaria in mainland Europe contained up to 154,000 particles per liter. 

       The team revealed that microscopic particles of plastic were also falling out of the sky with snow. Just like plant pollen, which can also be transported from the middle latitudes to the Arctic, the microplastics are swept up into the air, pulled along currents, and then dumped back to Earth through rain or snow.

    Dennie, Dane, A Simple Horseman et al, I sat outside this am for about an hour just got in to put coffee on. It was a bit cold, the cold wind came up and of all places from the East, SE and bringing some "clouds your way, ordinary looking ones just like one batch after they blow over on the way up to you all, it looks like clear skies. I will check in about 20 minutes. All the plants I see from the windows are not blowing now but those clouds were coming in fast. Cold and wind have died down at the ground but high clouds are still moving fast to you all. To the west, a mostly open blue sky there is a N/S running line of cloud puffs, a dirty, yellowish than the main clouds overhead.They are directly overhead coming from more south now and after that it looks clear. Sun is blocked in the east by these keep you all posted after my coffee as to what your weather may be today.

    • Dennie says:

      I know what my weather is here today, Sunday, August 18, in Marin County, CA:  Fog and wind, then warm when the wind stops blowing.  We had very little wind the past several days, then yesterday the fog roared in during the early morning hours with plenty of wind, blowing dead leaves off of trees, leaves that had dropped due to the stress of the heat wave not long ago, then the hot days just last week.  Marin is west of the east bay counties and gets the weather around the same time as Oakland, which gets it's weather from the East Pacific unimpeded by Mt. Tamalpais.  If you're up in the east bay hills north of San Leandro you should be able to see the fog coming in.  

      What I'm wondering now:  What is the forecast for the fall and winter months in California?  Looks to me like Dane's spot on when he talks about the summer and autumn dry-out as a precursor to massive fires in the fall months, done deliberately in order to create massive amounts of smoke. We know for sure that scientists have been talking about the use of "air pollution" and other means as ways to slow down "climate change," a.k.a. global "warming," which is more rightly called runaway atmospheric heating or Venus syndrome:

      Air quality advisory issued for Anchorage as wildfire smoke reaches ‘unhealthy’ levels
      Madeline McGee | Anchorage Daily News
      Aug 19, 2019

      The air quality in Anchorage on Monday reached “unhealthy” levels, prompting the municipal health department to issue an air quality advisory, as smoke from multiple wildfires continued to choke the region.

      The municipality advised those who are sensitive to air pollution to stay inside, and urged everyone to avoid strenuous outdoor exercise while the advisory is in effect.

      After days of strong, northerly winds that ignited destructive fires near Willow and awakened the relatively dormant Swan Lake fire on the Kenai Peninsula, the winds calmed on Monday, allowing the smoke to settle.

      “It was actually drifting from Swan Lake fire northward and really just was kind of able to hang out,” said metrologist Kaitlyn O’Brien of the National Weather Service in Anchorage.

    • 'a' simple horseman says:

      Jeanette, Good observations and good on you for seeking out regional observations. Connecting dots, right? I am about 800 miles north of you so my weather is often not on the same lanes of "jet stream". I'll tell you a couple of my observations on visual dispersion days. Like today was here. Today the tankers were flying very high. They usually fly in a cross wind manner. The winds were coming from the NNW and when I looked to the SSE I could the heavy layer far away to the SSE getting thicker as the morning progressed. There were no aerosol dispersions to the SSE of me that I could see. This afternoon there is, as per usual, many indicators of micro wave manipulation in the sky. For what it's worth, I can see about 20 to 30 miles to the NNW of me and 30 or 40 miles to the SSE of me. That's a range of view from BC Canada to well into the Colville Indian Reservation. Hope that helps.

    • Jeanette S says:

      You all have more moisture than we do generally. It is also hotter dryer in the s/e corner of the bay going to San Jose. Generally, the wind blows west to the east here. However, you always know when they are manipulating the weather when it is blowing from the south, fog here in the east bay is not at ground level; it may be overhead, overcast till about 9 am, for the rest of you. I was thinking about that weird small group of clouds. I was thinking that they may have been a marker…Dane was talking about the (high pressure) dome and perhaps those clouds were within or before it. Also I notice a few clear days in between various types of sprays/"clouds". I guess they do not want us to drop dead too quickly. How many millions of people here? Don't want us to all choke at once. Somebody might think something is "fishy".

    Excerpted from: State of siege in Kashmir: A warning to the international working class – World Socialist Web Site

    August 17. 2019

    "A population that is greater than those of entire European countries like Belgium, Greece and Portugal, or, for that matter, major US states such as Pennsylvania, Illinois and Michigan, has been subjected to a “security lockdown” that has included blanket curfews, keeping people caged in their homes with dwindling supplies of food.

    Freedom of speech and assembly has been abolished, with gatherings of more than four people outlawed. Critics who have denounced the repression to the media have been imprisoned. Public transport has been shut down, and the region’s economy has ground to a halt."

    If you doubt this can happen in your own country, think again.  As long as "cultures" support suited liars and uniformed thugs, fascism will reign supreme… Starvation is coming to a theater near you – soon…

      i am a co-operator, a pacifist and a lover of the wonder of being alive and conscious

      and i try to live up to my own expectations!

    and on the subject of trust! and understanding!

    i am becoming more and more disappointed with the human ability to know what the truth is

    i have spent most of my life under the radar – never wanting to involve myself with people or work that didn't involve loving what i do

    and so i ended up working with plants – they taught me so much about people

    truth depends upon where you are standing, which is why discussion for me is about – come over here and let me show you what i see – and i will come over there and see what you are seeing

    but people seem so intolerant of what others see

    maybe we are just representing what is happening to rest of the world – lost connectivity – confusion – chaos – death and destruction

    wow what a thing for me to watch as i approach seventy

    all i hear is bizarre weather, landslides, war and those poor birds killed and maimed from hailstones

    trouble is i couldn't read the article cos the site wanted me to allow them into my computer

    why, why, why – i don't want to buy their crap – don't want their adverts – want to think for myself

    mao was a nutter but he did put everyone back on the land – everyone  – including all the academics

    my brief encounter doing science and herbal medicine degrees as a mature student made me realise that universities and academics often are vastly ignorant of their subject in relation to the practical realities of everyday life

    woops, had to feed the birds again otherwise they won't stop tapping (sounded like banging today) on the window – no insects

    although did get a visit from a red damsel fly yesterday that circled my head – real close to – and then landed right in front of me on a flower – come to say hallo – makes me feel blessed and happy to be alive and in touch with the sensitivity and fragility of nature

    who would want to be like the sleeping

    never heard of george carmin (spelling?) before the other day – funny american man

    i paraphrase 'think of human average intelligence and then think of all the stupid before the average' hahahaha – funny man!!!

    and i am not thinking of stupidity in terms of academic achievement but of sensitivity and emotional intelligence and you don't need bits of paper for that 

    you need a sound mind and a good heart

    and all you people have that

    thank you dane and all you others as we try to turn peoples eyes towards the skies and to the earth at our feet

    this wondrous glorious nature watching nature

    dane, your family and all yours friends here, you keep me uplifted

    thank you all

    An EPA decision reviving Alaska’s Pebble Mine endangers Bristol Bay and a vibrant fishing economy
    Bristol Bay supports a vibrant, long-running economy based on a sustainable fishery — 14,000 jobs in a $1.5 billion-a-year economy, according to some estimates — as well as tourism and other non-extractive businesses. Allowing the mine to go forward would sacrifice the existing and more environmentally friendly economy for gold and copper extraction that could be disastrous for the environment.
    The Trump administration is playing favorites here. Its affection for extractive industries has already put hundreds of thousands of acres of public lands in the West in play for invasive mining leases for oil, gas, uranium and just about anything else of value the mining industry can find.

    Brazil’s Massive Crime Against Humanity
    By Paul Craig Roberts
    July 30, 2019 "Information Clearing House" –  The corrupt Brazilian government installed by Washington has decided to destroy the Amazon Rain Forest.  This will adversely affect the Earth’s climate by eliminating a massive carbon sink.
    The beneficiaries of the destruction of the rain forest are the timber loggers who are buddies with Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro, environmental minister Ricardo Salles, and farming lobbyist Tereza Cristina Dias.  
    One might have thought that the build-up of CO2 and the impact of carbon emissions in raising the temperature of Earth would result in more careful and responsible policies than one that destroys a unique ecological habitat that stabilizes the Earth’s climate. For no other reason than to maximize profits for timber loggers, the Amazon Rain Forest is to be destroyed.  This is unregulated international gangster capitalism at work. 
     Destroy the planet for everyone else so that a handful of gangsters can acquire fortunes.

    JASON: Science panel’s fight for survival

    The fight over Jason, a longstanding panel of military scientists, signals a larger story about the escalating conflict between the Trump Administration and world of science
    By CHARLES LEVINSON / July 30, 2019

    They’re members of a prestigious academic panel with top-secret clearances who’ve advised the Pentagon on some of America’s most vexing national security issues since the Cold War. Over 60 years, they’ve won 11 Nobel prizes and conducted hundreds of government studies.
    The advisory group, known as Jason, is a team of some 60 of America’s top physicists and scientists who spend each summer in La Jolla, California, conducting studies commissioned by the Pentagon and other U.S. government agencies.
    On March 28, Trump appointee Michael Griffin – the Pentagon’s chief technology officer – unexpectedly moved to terminate the group.
    Lisa Gordon-Hagerty, the head of the National Nuclear Security Administration, objected, telling Griffin’s office the scientists were crucial for keeping America’s nuclear stockpile secure, according to an NNSA official and others affiliated with the Jason program. Gordon-Hagerty’s agency offered to take responsibility for the program. She only needed Griffin’s signature to make it happen.
    … A day after Griffin moved to axe Jason, a 35-word blurb in the Federal Register announced the end of two other independent scientific boards, including the Navy Research Advisory Committee, which had advised the Navy and Marine Corps for 73 years.
    The efforts to kill the scientific panels show how the Trump administration’s crackdown on the role of independent science in the U.S. government is reaching into areas long thought immune from political influence.
