- The day after posts initiating this thread the contrails
were gone from Yakima, WA and the temperatures were back to their normal
range and no clouds of any kind were visible. A day later the permanent
contrails were back and the day after that back with a vengeance.
- Yesterday, I took my daughter on the bike trail along
the Naches River where from the center of the valley I could see vast expanses
of sky. Throughout the day I observed many contrails in the sky, and from
#:00 p.m. to six p.m. I was able to make quantitative observations, counting
12 to 16 separate contrails always in the sky at one time--new ones replacing
those that had 'spindrifted' into permanent cirrus cloud or moved off to
the north-east. I counted 16 contrails at one time (not counting many long
clouds with distinct edges that I am sure began as contrails.) As these
spread out (like Venetian blinds being closed and blended (spindrift),
the familiar white sheeting of Cirrus cloud slowly took shape. The rate
and density of contrailing over Yakima continued all day and into the night
as far as I could tell from my periodic quick samplings before and after
my intensive observation period. (Anyone who wants to see this can give
me a call, I am in the book--free to any journalist or weather/climate
expert who takes me up on it.)
- While this has been going on over the skies of Eastern
Washington record-breaking temperatures have been obtaining across California,
Nevada and Arizona. Las Vegas recorded temperatures of 107 deg. F. one
degree over the previous record.
- Yakima, Washington - Here the temperature has been unseasonably
cool and here cirrus clouds are being seeded/created by a large fleet of
stratospheric jet plans owned by some group with an enormous budget.
- San Francisco, where there is currently a record heat
wave topping 93 degrees, passing the record set in 1886 of 86 degrees.
Normal temperature for May: 58 degrees F. Max. Normal high for July: 72
deg. F. Highest ever 106 deg.
- Sacramento, the inland capital of California is also
experiencing record heat, topping 109 deg. F.
- In California the heat wave has overloaded the state's
power grid, prompting utility regulators to declare an emergency Monday.
Business are shutting down and the Sierra's are experiencing summer-like
- Back in the 1960's weather books describe how clouds
were being manufactured by seeding the air with silver iodide crystals.
- It is also well know that Cirrus clouds, while themselves
very cold at 40,000 feet, are correlated (as precursors-- --functionally
related as a controlling variable?--of warm weather.
- Again I remind readers that Yakima cumulus clouds are
normally all we get at this time of year, clouds formed as they moist air
from the coast, forced upward by the Cascades condenses and then float
over the desert country that is Eastern Washington.
- It is clear that the contrails are being made on a massive
scale; that the project and the agencies are secret; that the media is
not interested in even considering the question (although I understand
the internet has been reporting curious 'crisscrossing' contrail activity
for years--I have observed this phenomenon for more than two years.

- I find no systematic records of droughts in the U.S.,
but the almanac does record that at least 800 people died in a heat wave
in the Midwest and Northeast, July 12 -17.
- In 1966 Lyden, F.J. and Shipman, G.A. published their
'Public Policy Issues' raised by weather modification; possible alternative
strategies for government action' in Sewell, W.R.D., ed., Human Dimensions
of Weather Modification, University of Chicago, Dept. of Geography, Research
Paper # 105, pp. 289-303:
- Is weather modification a public function, analogous
to military protection, postal service, or highway construction? Or is
it a private, non-governmental function? If the latter, is it a private
function vested with a public interest, as had been determined to be the
case, for example, in rail or air transportation? ... Or is weather modification
an ordinary,lawful business, subject only to reasonable regulation, as
in the manufacture and sale of clothing? This view raises questions about
property rights, i.e., who owns the clouds?
- I am convinced that the answers to these questions have
been answered, answered without the consultation of the public.
- As British scientist W. J Maunder commented in his book,
The Value of the Weather (London: Methuen & Co. Ltd, 1970)
- "At least in the United States weather modification
as a public function does not simplify matters, for a considerable amount
of private capital has already been invested in cloud seeding enterprises,
and any proposal of a governmental monopoly would undoubtedly meet with
strong opposition from such investors. Even if these objections could be
over- come, additional questions arise, such as should the programme be
a Federal governmental operation, or one administered by t the states with
co-ordination, and perhaps partial financing, by the Federal government."
- I think, Maunder's question has been answered since 1992.
I believe that the transnationals affiliated with the PLA's short-term-climate
control organization have taken over the responsibility on a "don't
ask, don't tell" basis.
- Come to Yakima and see for yourself that it is being
done. Then ask why this obvious fact is getting the same debunking. And
no I am not writing a book, or speaking on radio, or in any way trying
to exploit a new ="urban legend." I am scared and angry and disappointed
in the rest of you for your lack of outrage and, yes, of curiosity.
