- Jeff - I just received this update done by the reporter
who did the Chemtrail story on that local Shreveport tv newscast and which
was subsequently posted on Youtube.
- This is the link to that original news story by reporter
Jeff Ferrell which found enormous amounts of toxic barium coming down after
heavy chemtrail spraying...
- Here, now, is the update (text only) which came with
no headline or title, and appears to be a transcript from the Shreveport
- A scientist now confirms that the United States military
funded research which led to a patent suspected of making so-called "chemtrails"
in our skies. In this follow-up report, investigative reporter Jeff Ferrell
also discovered a U.S. Air Force manual called "Owning the Weather
in 2025," which describes the very same approach.
- Ferrell's original report aired on KSLA News 12, the
CBS-TV affiliate in Shreveport, Louisiana where he works as a reporter
and anchor. The story attracted attention from hundreds of people across
the country and Canada. They watched it on YouTube, Google Video and a
host of other web sites that posted the story. In turn, those viewers
began emailing and calling the station.
- While Ferrell immediately began investigating for a follow-up
report, the station's interest in the subject waned. So, here's what he
found out in his independent research:
- Story update by reporter Jeff Ferrell...
- "I learned about U.S. Patent #: 5,003,186, titled
`Stratospheric Welsbach Seeding for Reduction of Global Warming,"
better known by chemtrail researchers as "The Welsbach Patent."
- The patent describes putting metallic particles like
aluminum and barium into jet fuel. Then, exhaust from the jet engine seeds
the stratosphere. In turn, those small metallic particles serve a dual
purpose by: 1) reflecting incoming light back into space and 2.) helping
convert the warmth below into infra-red waves, allowing them to escape
from the earth's atmosphere.
- "It turned out that it seemed to work and so that's
why we had applied for a patent," said patent co-inventor David Chang.
Chang confirmed that the U.S. military did fund that research while he
worked at Hughes Aircraft, an aerospace giant at the time. It would later
downsize considerably and evolve into Direct-TV, which required some of
the very same kinds of research and development.
- In fact, Chang described several other military-funded
projects where jet engine exhaust dispersed metallic particles into the
atmosphere. "For instance, we were using it to develop targets for
laser range finders," continued Chang.
- I then learned about that U.S. Air Force document titled,
"Owning the Weather in 2025." it details weather modification
for war-fighting and describes putting carbon dust into jet fuel for dispersal
as the quote, 'most convenient, safe and cost effective method," just
as the Welsbach Patent explained. That method is described on page 15
of the Air Force report, originally written in 1996 as a study paper.
- In September of 2002, then-Secretary of State Colin Powell
even told a United Nations World Summit in South Africa quote, "we
are committed to a billion-dollar program to develop and deploy advanced
technologies to mitigate greenhouse-gas emissions." Powell never fully
- And few may remember that the U.S. military used covert
weather modification in the past. During the Vietnam War a top secret
mission called ?Operation Popeye,? seeded clouds over the Ho Chi Minh Trail
to create floods and wash out the enemy's supply routes. Reporter Jack
Anderson is credited with breaking that story back in 1971.
- A Discovery Channel program, which first aired in February
2007, investigated so-called Chemtrails, describing them as contrail formations
that persist in the skies for hours after a jet passes. But the military
refused them access to jet fuel for testing.
- "I suspect it may be some sort of weather control,"
said Stamps, Arkansas resident Bill Nichols in our first report on the
subject, which aired on KSLA News 12.
- Nichols handed us a mason jar with a sample inside containing
water and ?other? material collected recently from his back yard. Independent
testing at a Shreveport, LA lab did show high levels of barium, a hallmark
of other chemtrail testing. Louisiana regulators described such a reading
as unusual, but very difficult to prove its source.
- Chemtrail skeptics argue barium is used very often commercially
for everything from mining to oil drilling. But Chang told me that's 'exactly'
why they considered such material safe to use in our skies as a welsbach
- But, no one has yet to officially confirm a direct connection
between these alleged chemtrails and the U.S. military. Such a discovery
is the 'Holy Grail' of chemtrail researchers. Such a revelation, if there
is indeed such a covert program in existence at all, would require someone
to step forward and potentially risk court martial or legal action. Until
then, the guessing and the waiting continue.
