A Closer Look by Michael J. Murphy
What would you do if you were told that toxic substances being sprayed into the sky are falling to the ground and decimating eco-systems around the world? This very claim, made by concerned citizens outside the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) meeting last month in San Diego, sparked my interest to investigate further.
The AAAS meeting hosted several top geo-engineering scientists who gathered to discuss the “plausibility” of implementing various geo-engineering programs throughout the world. One of the options addressed was the stratospheric aerosol geo-engineering (SAG) , AKA chemtrail program, where scientists discussed the “plausibility” of spraying aerosol aluminum, barium, strontium, and other particles into the sky to block the sun as a means to “reduce” the Earth’s temperature. When asked specifically about the potential risks associated with using aluminum in the program as an aerosol, scientists replied by stating that they have not studied the risks associated with aluminum and added that something terrible could be found tomorrow that they haven’t looked at. When probed further about the deployment of existing aerosol programs, scientists stated that no aerosol spraying programs have been implemented.
The concerned citizens I met outside the meeting were claiming quite the opposite. They came in protest after witnessing airplanes that they believe are regularly spraying aerosols into the upper part of the sky. Many from this group have tested and found extremely high levels of aluminum, barium, strontium, and other substances in their soil, rain, water, and snow. Ironically, the substances that they reported finding are the same substances the GE scientists are “considering” implementing in the various aerosol spraying programs discussed at the meeting. They also believe that these substances are leading to the destruction of eco-systems and are coming from already deployed SAG programs. Due to the severity of this issue and my desire to know the truth, I was led to Shasta County in the Northern part of California to investigate not only the claims of what is being reported in the sky, but also claims of what is in the rain, water, snow, and soil from what many residents are saying is the result of SAG programs.
The first stop on this trip led me to Dane Wigington’s beautiful 2000 acre property overlooking Lake Shasta. As we toured his land, he pointed to the multiple trails that blanketed the sky. He claimed the trails are present on most days above Northern California. Wigington referred to this as a “moderate spraying day”. Like many other residents in Shasta County, Wigington moved to the area to get away from the heavy pollution of Southern California that he grew up with as a child. His dreams of living off the land and becoming one with nature are now coming to a grinding halt as he is focusing his time and energy on the issue of geo-engineering.
Wigington became concerned about aerosol spraying/geo-engineering (GE) when he began to notice dramatic changes in the solar power that he uses to supply his home and property. Owner of one of the largest residential solar systems in Northern California, he began to notice very high declines in solar power. It can be decreased by as much as 60 percent on what he calls “heavy spraying days”. Wigington said, “The trails are literally blocking the sun”. He also went on to say that he regularly samples the fine dust layers on top of his solar panels and other outdoor surface areas and frequently finds very high levels of aluminum and barium. Wigington believes that these are a product of aerosol spraying programs.
At the same time as finding decreased solar power, Wigington also began to witness dramatic changes on his property as the trees, grass, insects and wildlife started dying. This led him to get his first rain test just four years ago. The results were shocking as they found aluminum levels at 7 ug/l or 7 parts per billion. Although aluminum can be found around the world in smaller quantities, geo-hydrologists told him that this number was quite high. Since that time, he has had aluminum tests escalate as high as 50,000 percent to 3,400ug/l. That is literally toxic rain. These results prompted him to get additional pH tests from two USDA soil scientists which yielded more shocking results. The pH of the soil was 6.6 in one area and 7.4 in another. This is over 11 times the normal conifer soil which should be about 5.5 pH. The tests were taken in the forest far removed from any highway or industry.
When asked what these changes can do to the ecosystem, Wigington replied that it is devastating. He went on to say, “if this continues, we can only expect to see things get much worse. Not only are we seeing our trees dying here, but also a major decline in our fish.” As a matter of fact, Wigington stated that according to The National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration, the salmon run, once seen in abundance in this area has declined from 769,868 in 2002 to 39,530 in 2009. That is over a 90 percent decline. Amazingly enough, this decline started occurring about the same period of time when residents began to see a dramatic increase in what they believe to be SAG programs. Wigington’s efforts to get these issues and test results addressed has been largely ignored by government agencies, the military, and officials.
After a closer look at Wigington’s property, my initial awe of the beautiful views lead to sadness, frustration, and anger over the contamination that is literally destroying the eco-system on his property. This led me to investigate further by seeking an expert in biology. I packed up the car and headed north to the breathtaking town of Mt. Shasta. Mt. Shasta has been known for its beauty, clean air and clean water. Many travel from around the world to mountain climb and vacation in this spectacular part of the West.
Francis Mangels, BS in Forestry, Masters in Zoology and a retired range, soil conservationist and wildlife biologist who worked for the U.S. Forest Service for over thirty five years, welcomed me into his modest home in the town of Mt. Shasta to discuss the “hidden” crisis that is occurring in the area. Mangels alerted me to the rapid decline of fish in the nearby rivers and streams. Mangels brought me to a nearby creek that had an abundant supply of native fish ten years ago. Because the primary diet of the fish in the creek is aquatic insects, he performed a scientific standard sample to measure the number of insects present. The samples he did in the 1980s before the alleged aerosol spraying campaign had yielded an average of 1000 aquatic insects. Our test yielded only 30. This is over a 95% decline from just a few years ago. Mangels stated that because the fish live mostly on insects, the fish are nearly starving and often in lean condition. This rapid decline is likely due to changes in water chemistry. The only significant change that Mangels is aware of is dramatic increases of aluminum, barium, and strontium which he believes is from SAG programs. He acknowledged it could be some local illegal pollution upstream. “Whatever is wrong,” Mangels said, “the salmon industry, Trout Unlimited, and Cal Trout ought to investigate this.”
We also took time to test the pH of nearby moss, soil, and snow which contained over 10 times the alkalinity of the normal pH. Mangels believes that this drastic change in pH is also due to massive increases of aluminum. He stated that forests, fields, and farm ecologies thrive in acidic soils. Aluminum acts as a buffer that increases alkalinity and can decimate ecologies in large amounts. Mangels also pointed out that a Siskiyou County resident recently sampled the snow high on Mt. Shasta and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA method 6010B) laboratory found results that contained 61,100 ug/l or parts per billion of aluminum, 383 ug/l of strontium, and 83 ug/l of barium. The normal amount of aluminum in the snow at Mt. Shasta is 0.5 ug/l. Drinking water allowable is 50 ug/l. That means that the snow on Mt. Shasta has tested at 1200 times more poisonous than water standards allow for aluminum. Mangels said, “Mountain climbers from around the world are drinking poisonous water from the snow on the mountain.” Mangels reported that the EPA lab said that government action is required at 1000 ug/l of detected aluminum. Although he alerted several government agencies, legislators, and the military of these findings, no action has been taken.
Mangels also noted that a lined pond had 375,000 ug/l of aluminum, 3090 ug/l of barium, and 345 ug/l of strontium. “This is the water that deer, elk, bear, quail, and other wildlife are drinking in water guzzlers and wildlife ponds made by the USFS for watering animals in dry areas. What will happen to the deer that drink this water? It can’t be good for them, nor for the future of hunting in this area.”
Mangels brought me to several other locations around the town of Mt. Shasta where he tested the soil, rain, water and snow that also yielded tests that revealed a 6.6 pH. He said that these types of changes in soil, water and snow are very uncommon except in other areas around the world where people have been witnessing what many believe to be spraying from SAG programs. Mangels also stated that these chemical changes have produced a “quiet ecological crisis” with unpredictable consequences if continued. Mangels said, “Losses to our economy may be incredible and are on their way as we speak. Tree growth may be decreased which will result in the loss of logging jobs. It is also causing the decline of naturally occurring plant and grass growth that occurs in normally acidic soils of forests and pastures, resulting in the decline of our forest, grazing, fishing, hunting, and agricultural industries in Northern California.”
What is amazing is that these tests and many others throughout the world are largely being ignored by the very governmental entities that are required to address them. Some politicians, like Mt. Shasta City Council member Ed Valenzuela chose to ignore the issue. Valenzuela was made aware of mass contamination at a city council meeting where he stated that the city did not want to sample the water for aluminum because the request was a “can of worms” that would, "open a Pandora's box" that the city would have to pay for. Although several local citizens volunteered to pay the $22.00 cost of the test at an EPA lab, both Republican Committee Chairman Russ Porterfield and Valenzuela voted NO to having public drinking water tested. Mayor Stearns wanted the test in the interest of public safety, but was overruled by a 3-2 vote. This response is normal as Mangels has presented this issue and his EPA test data to over 15 local and federal agencies and Legislators with no response or action.
Is it a coincidence that the substances found in the rain, snow and soil in this region and around the world match the exact substances that scientists are “considering” implementing in various geo-engineering campaigns throughout the world? If not, then why have agencies and officials largely ignored these findings that are allegedly destroying our planet’s eco-system? Could it be that officials are fearful of exposing a massive cover-up of a world-wide ecological crime? Or is this issue simply too large and complicated for them? Whatever the reason for their ignorance, we demand that our questions and shocking test results get addressed in Shasta County and every part of the world. Our future on this planet is dependent on this issue being addressed.
Because this movement has come under attack from those who appear to be protecting the many political and corporate interests associated with SAG, we must get involved by testing the rain, snow, soil, and various outdoor surfaces and reporting results to our elected officials and local environmental agencies. We must also reach out and educate all those involved with SAG who might be unaware of the environmental implications. Testing for pH changes and metals is simple and can be performed almost anywhere at a nominal price. Simple test instructions and more information about geo-engineering programs can be found on the internet at www.geoengineeringwatch.org . Biologist Francis Mangels can be contacted by e-mail at email@example.com for more information on tests he has performed and suggestions on testing procedures. Please take action by testing, reporting, and demanding answers on this important issue. Nature and our humanity depend on it.

Chemtrails: An Updated Look at Aerosol Toxins Part 1.
©By Dr. Ilya Sandra Perlingieri
Feb. 3, 2011
January 22, was the first Chemtrails Awareness Day.
(1) For those of us who, for years, have been researching these aerosol toxins that continue to be sprayed on us, it was a day to redouble our efforts once again to educate those who have not been paying attention to the momentous changes in our skies.
Just look up! We rarely have full days of real sunshine. Instead, now we have 20% less sun, and mostly a blanket of artificial “clouds” filled with toxins. This is due to illegal Weather Modification programs that have never had any official public discussion. Our air quality, over the past 12-15 years, has declined dramatically. Do we really think we are immune to these poisonous effects? If one connects the dots as to how this has affected our well being, all we need do is see how illness has increased significantly in humans, animals, and plant life (in short, all living things). Millions of people are getting sicker, not better. What has happened is staggering in implications for all life on this planet. Yet, despite two documentaries(2), the important and vital research contributions of Clifford Carnicom, various Skywatch and other citizens groups’ concerns, Dr. R. Michael Castle’s 2007 Unified Atmospheric Preservation Act (stalled in Congress), and possibly thousands of calls and letters to those in charge, US public officials and agencies either ignore our real concerns or dismiss them as unfounded.
A new preliminary draft report by Arizona Skywatch shows dramatic increases in heavy metals that simply do not belong in our air. NOTE: The level of Manganese is so shockingly high that Arizona Skywatch also included additional information about it (see below). This report will be posted online shortly.(3) Here are the pre-publication results. [NOTE: the Manganese and Copper ratio.] This is only a preliminary overview of Arizona air particulates.
2010 Air Particulates
These figures indicate how many times they are over the “allowable” toxic limit:
NOTE: See the New York data…very similar proportions.
GEOENGINEERING CONTRAILS -- What we know as of 6/1/11.
-- Call Francis if questions, 530-926-0311
This is the summary of lab reports, photo/objective evidence, logic, and personal observation as a scientist. No blogger opinion, hearsay, or gossip is allowed.
ü The natural pH of rain or snow by the text and county records is 5.5 pH. When contrails have not been active, under 6 pH is measured. When contrails were very active, the rain/snow was pH 6.8 to 7.5. The pH can be anywhere in between with moderate contrail activity. These numbers were simultaneously confirmed between Mt. Shasta, Redding and other cities. The pH is directly and widespread related to contrail pre-storm front spraying. Over 400 tests made.
ü Normal acidity for Mt. Shasta area Deetz 125, 126 soils, a habitat of acidic black oak and/or mixed conifer forest, is 4.5-6.0. About 5.5 pH is normal for Deetz black oak or coniferous forests. Now it is 6.5-7.0 pH, in over 200 samples.
ü About ten samples were taken by meter in McCloud, CA of yards, forest, and gardens. They ranged from 7.0 to 8.5, or un-naturally alkaline. Papers said same.
ü The Mangels organic garden in Mt. Shasta was 5.5 pH in 2003, tested by a store kit. It is now 6.5 to 7.0, using Hydrion narrow range pH papers, meters, and kits. Garden compost is black oak leaves, acorns, and ponderosa pine needles mixed with lawn grass. Soil is now 10-20 times more alkaline. Sulfur did not lower pH.
ü Coniferous Douglas fir forest north of Redding, CA was tested by USDA Soils specialist Jim Collins at 7.4 pH. He said it should be 5.5 for the soil.
ü The pH increase in compost/soil is partly due to more Al(OH)3, Al2O3, SrO, and BaO, BaCO3, etc. which appeared in soil during Bush years 2000-2008 and continues. More aluminum, strontium, and Barium cations? We don’t know.
ü Garden production declined for acid-soil-loving vegetables; potatoes, tomatoes.
ü Some metallic cations are toxic to biological systems, and could explain loss of aquatic insect populations measured by Mangels. Insects are 10% of normal numbers in headwater streams, but not below springs. Natural variations occur, but such change should not be a 90% loss, particularly loss of diptera that live in sediment deposits in the streams, where metals would accumulate.
ü The three oxides are not from China. Testing at Mt. Rainier verified it. Mercury with Chinese “coal signatures” was found there, but not detected in local soils.
ü The three cations in question cause endocrine and enzyme malfunction. They are the basis for prion diseases, such as “mad cow.” Sufficient evidence indicates correlation with neurological, lung, and bone problems, particularly in children as autism and in elders as Alzheimer’s syndrome.
ü We have a local increase of autism in children, from 1/10,000 in the 1990s to 1/112. Alzheimer’s in Redding is about 1 of 8 for men and 1 of 4 for women.
ü A lady’s four pet dogs refuse to drink rain/snow water, but will drink tap water. Similarly, neural, skin, lung, cancer, or endocrine problems are reported in cats (meticulous groomers), dogs, and horses (drink pond water). Dogs don’t tell lies.
MILITARY CONTRAIL OBSERVATIONS
Jets can be viewed with spotting scopes, telescopes, or binoculars. Contrail jets with few side windows, or side/tail/belly pods, are usually military kc135 or kc434. With windows, are usually Boeing 737 (Evergreen Aviation?) blue, green, or “red-belly” jets.
In 1950s to 1990s, a jet that actually left a contrail had one maybe a finger-length long, or about 20 degrees long at most, and commercial jets still do. Many jets left no contrail then. Today 90% of the jets leave contrails that last 10-20 hours.
Some contrails are multicolored, often the middle streak being bright shiny blue, brown or dark gray, the outside two are white. Sometimes they are all one color.
ü Many photographs show jet trails crossing at right angles, curves, grids or circles. I have seen tic-tac-toe inside circles. Commercial jets fly straight. Since there are no east/west commercial flights over N. California according to FAA, it’s military.
ü Counting all trails in every direction over Mt. Shasta, the FAA indicates 3 flights per day. We count over thirty contrails at once, over 100 just before weather fronts.
ü Commercial jets do not suddenly increase their flight schedules just before a weather front. Heavy spraying days are just before weather fronts, it is therefore military.
ü Contrail jets sometimes fly at night, but most active dawn to dusk. Commercial jets at night when it is colder do not usually leave persistent contrails, but military do.
ü Some jets emit a ball of smoke over 5 degrees in diameter, and then the contrail begins. This sort of contrail display is impossible under natural conditions. If it were a lens of cold air, it would not be a ball, and would fade in or out.
ü Some contrails appear to have particulate matter streaming down out of them, much like fireworks displays, leaving trails of smoke as the particles descend.
ü Some contrails converge to a point, often over Mt. Shasta, then re-align, cross, curve, or radiate (asterisk-like) out from the mountain. This is no commercial flight pattern.
ü Before 2000, skies were typically a deep blue. Now skies have typically whitish haze or gray-brown blue, and the old true blue is unusual due to pollutants.
ü Two-engine 737 and four-engine jets leave 3-5 line contrails, with a nozzle in the jet’s mid-belly. Military cargo jets leave persistent contrails, most odd numbers.
ü Republican or conservative pro-military congressmen claim contrails are harmless. The military and USFS were contacted by certified mail and refuse to answer.
ü Many local anecdotes and forest service personnel indicate lightning storms are more violent after jet spraying occurs, esp. width and number of lightning bolts. I saw it.
ü Heat of condensation in physics indicates micron-sized particles reduce rainfall. California is in a drought since spraying began, as rain now goes to the East USA.
ü Contrail composition measured in rainfall is the same as indicated in the San Diego conference and in Welsbach or geo-engineering patents used by military.
ü Geo-engineers at the Feb. 20 meeting in San Diego saw D. Keith admit on camera that spraying may have terrible consequences. They don’t know.
ü The military admits that “engine erosion” may be the source of some metals in the contrails, but won’t say what metals or which engines (military secret).
ü Breathing, lung, and neural problems increase after spraying, esp. elderly and children. In Shasta, Alzheimer’s is now 1 of 8, autism now 1 in 110.
ü Solar collection panel efficiency remarkably decreases with contrail spraying, robbing investors of their just share of solar electric power up to 50%.
ü The weather lady remarked on channel 12 on 11/24/10 that the contrails are really spraying so we know a change in the weather is coming. People noticed this.
ü At the showing of “What in the World Are They Spraying” in Redding 12/10 a full panel of medical, ex-military, solar experts, and scientists affirmed the above information before 504 people. See geoengineeringwatch.org for a 10 minute trailer, and a shortened version to come out in 2011.
This list will be revised as new and reliable observations and data is available. Note 6/1/11 date of revision. Ph. 530-926-0311 to contact Francis Mangels.

Claim #1- Soil pH has changed as a result of spraying, and California's commercial growers can't get a crop that's financially big enough to harvest
Claim #2 - After years of soil amendment with compost, his backyard garden soil pH has increased from acidic to more basic levels, and more additions of compost haven't driven it down again.

Here are the lab results for metal testing in lichens. I selected lichens since they acquire all of their nutrients from the air and would better indicate metallic aerosol accumulation from the sky. I wanted to relate metal concentrations to samples from Mt. Shasta snow and water that was reported in micrograms/liter or (ug/l) by Dane Wigington a solar expert and Francis Mangles (US Forest Service-Retired) from Mt. Shasta area, so I put the lichens in an aquatic solution .
To report in ug/l, I used a 5gm sample of new lichens (1 year old) ground to powder, to 50ml of distilled water, and soaked them for two days before submitting the water mix to Cal-test Labs for analysis.
I only had them test for Aluminum (Al) and Strontium (Sr). I should have added Barium (Ba) (as Barium ferrite) since these are the three most common metals found in soil and water samples that have been related to the cloud spraying program. They are all in compounds which, similar to silver iodide, are water loving salts used for making clouds.
METAL CONCENTRATIONS Al Normal = 0.5 ug/l Al High = 50 ug/l
Calistoga Aluminum = 3,100 ug/l Strontium = 149 ug/l Middletown Aluminum = 1,070 ug/l Strontium = 340 ug/l
Overall metal concentrations are extremely high for both metals. The source of the metals has to be airborne. Aluminum in acidic environments is toxic to plants below 5pH and kills roots. A high percentage of the tree die-off and pH changes, as well as huge reductions in stream organisms as seen throughout North America, could be a result of these high metal concentrations mixed with acid rains. The addition of aerosol sulfur, as presently proposed by scientists (see http://csglobe.com/bill-gates-admits-chemtrails/), would significantly increase acid rain and further seriously reduce ecological organisms and functions.
Nano-sized particles had to be used to maintain their suspension at 40,000 feet (and other high altitude) for hours and sometimes days. The particles would form a metallic mirror in the sky for reflecting electromagnetic waves (HAARP), with directional antenna, and would form a highly ionized medium in the air column … like living in a plasma field, and the air column could be easily heated or cooled depending on wave frequency. This makes for advanced weather manipulation and weather war. As a trained US Air Force weatherman, I attest to the fact of non-commercial jets forming high-thin cirrus clouds and overcast almost every day. I have thousands of pictures.
Why doesn’t this data show up in air monitoring? Why isn’t it tested for? What role do these metals play in water contamination and the growth of cyanobacteria and neural toxins?
