Ethan Indigo Smith & Andy Whiteley, Guests
The complexity of nuclear experimentation is beyond the pale of postmodern human comprehension. It also reveals, although we would like to believe otherwise, our inability or unwillingness to consider the unseen. Whether it is invisible because of ethereal origins or because it is nano-sized poison does not matter; collectively we tend to obfuscate the unseen. Nuclear experimentation also reveals our collective inability to conceptualize time, and to understand just how long nuclear radiation lasts in our environment – and how long our karma lasts.
This short-sightedness was not always the case. Indigenous cultures across Turtle Island, A.K.A. North America, knew they would one day return home to the spirit world, and that their stay here on Earth was equivalent to the blink of an eye. So they considered the Rule of Seven Generations when implementing procedures that would alter the planet in any way, beginning with harvesting herbs, to ensure their society’s long term sustainability. In fact, the indigenous cultures were so considerate of their people’s future as to make sure there would be enough herbs left seven generations from the harvest. Understanding their place in the delicate ecosystem, the Turtle Islanders contemplated the unseen and the distant future, always.
Today we have collectively foregone such considerations. And it was no accident that brought us here.
The Seen and the Unseen
In order for institutions to institute a military industrial complex, a prison industrial complex, a pharmacological industrial complex and so on, humanity had to become disconnected from its unseen reality. Whether ethereal or too small to fathom, we have been conditioned over time to disbelieve in the unseen, to trust only 5 of our senses, and to prize rational logic (which cannot itself perceive the unseen) over intuition. Then, with only ‘the seen’ at front of the collective mind, the unseen dangers of nuclear industry experimentation have become whitewashed in public discussion, and radiation monitors disabled by government, while unprecedented levels of radioactivity poisons our only world.
It is an inarguable fact that nuclear radiation and life on our planet cannot co-exist in the same space. It is another inarguable fact that nuclear radiation takes hundreds of thousands of years to break down, creating life-threatening environmental conditions not just today, but for seven thousand generations to come. Yet, despite the industry’s inability to avoid total meltdowns every few years, nuke advocates continue to espouse nuclear as a “safe” energy alternative, employing a program of pseudo-science to confuse the logical minds of humanity, creating the scene for these dangerous yet financially profitable (to some) practices to continue. Many pro-nukers even go so far as to suggest that ‘low dose’ nuclear radiation is somehow good for us! But understand, this theory – known as the “Hormesis Effect” – is deliberate industry quackery, and anyone who tells you radiation is good for you is either an industry stooge, or has been conned by one.
It has been well proven through both science and history that the human body (correctly) perceives radiation as a threat to its existence. If you don’t believe this premise, ask the good folks of Chernobyl, Hanford, Three Mile Island, andFukushima (among myriad others). The external threat of radiation sends the human body’s immune response into overdrive. The short term result of this intense immune activity can be the improvement of other existing ailments, but our immune systems are not designed to run permanently in this state of stress so, as radiation exposure continues, health inevitably deteriorates.
Studies have clearly linked radiation exposure to increased rates of cancer, thyroid damage, skin complaints, endocrine disruption, pregnancy issues (such as miscarriage) and emotional trauma, which itself negatively impacts the body.[source] In 2012, “nearly 36 per cent of children in the nuclear disaster-affected Fukushima Prefecture had abnormal thyroid growths.” [source]
“This leak is very serious,” said Dr. Janette Sherman, an Alexandria, Virginia-based physician who specializes in radioactive and toxic exposure. Dr. Sherman, who edited an in-depth study of health effects on cleanup workers in the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster in the former Soviet Union, said she is concerned that the cleanup crew at Fukushima Daiichi may face long-term health risks. She also raised the prospect of the radiation’s as-yet unknown effects on fish and other marine life in the Pacific. [source]
In 1990, Dr. Keith F. Baverstock, then Head of the Department for Radiation and Health at the European office of the WHO, visited the Gomel Region of Belarus, an area significantly affected by nuclear fall-out from the Chernobyl disaster. At the time, Dr. Baverstock noted the dramatic increase in disease, especially in very young children. Writes Baverstock:
Children exposed to Chernobyl fallout were experiencing chronic adult diseases of the respiratory and blood systems, gastritis, nervous system diseases, cardiovascular diseases and other diseases of internal organs. In general, in 1991, the level of serious illness in children was about 6 to 7 times above normal.
In reality, no one on this planet would engage in nuclear experimentation if they valued the unseen, the spiritual and the ethereal. No one would engage in nuclear experimentation if they practised the Rule of Seven Generations. No one would engage in nuclear experimentation if they valued life on Earth over unnecessary toxic energy systems and destructive devices of war.
We digress from our hypothesis, but feel it’s important to note how the following problem was allowed to occur — by the transformation of our collective mind state from a culture rooted in localized permaculture and sustainable practices into a barbarous war culture that knowingly poisons its environment in the name of energy and armory, and then wonders why ill health is so prevalent.
It is also important to point out that nuclear experimentation knows no borders; it negatively impacts all life, and destroys entire sections of our planet’s interconnected ecosystem. Nuclear experimentation is therefore not a means to self-support, or self-defense, but an attack on everything — on life itself.
The Effects of Radiation on Our Health
The Nuclear Fallout
There have been 2,000 atomic and nuclear detonations on every strata of earth since the first experiment in New Mexico, July, 1945 and the two most infamous devices dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki later that summer. That makes 70 years of radiological contamination from nuclear detonation experiments alone, each one inevitably releasing billions of atomic echoes we cannot comprehend entirely. The Manhattan Project scientists actually debated amongst themselves whether or not the detonation would cause a chain reaction igniting the entire atmosphere, but did it anyway. After the blast there was a radiated ‘blast zone’, an area destroyed forever, and also radioactive fallout that fell well beyond the designated blast zone; deadly dust kicked up by, and elements formed in, the detonations.
a) Radioactive particles that are carried into the atmosphere after a nuclear explosion and gradually fall back as dust or in precipitation.
b) The adverse results of a situation or action.
What is not realized about this definition is that not all of that nuclear garbage actually ‘falls out’. Some of the dust and radioactive elements are so light that they do not actually fall out but remain in our atmosphere, dramatically altering its complexion. In fact the airborne radioactive waste from the era of nuclear detonation experiments has only now saturated the atmosphere, and spread out evenly. Meanwhile, the radiation that does fall from the atmosphere does not break down, but accumulates in soil and water, poisoning everything it touches in perpetuity.
Meanwhile, the ongoing Fukushima disaster could further increase the problem of atmospheric contamination by continuing to spew radiation into the sea. When radioactive material hits the minerals in sea water, it creates a chemical reaction. Ultimately these elements may trigger so many reactions that they become nano sized particles, and when this occurs, the elements then mingle with all other elements, upsetting the natural balance of nature.
As we know, the oceans are a primary source of oxygen and other vital atmospheric components. According to a recent EarthSky.org report, “most of Earth’s oxygen comes from tiny ocean plants – called phytoplankton – that live near the water’s surface and drift with the currents.” Now add to this environment at least 300 tons of radioactive waste per day, for over 3½ years [source] and the ocean is now itself a source of radioactive elements, poisoning ocean life and reaching back into our breathable atmosphere.
And again, the cycle continues, with some radiation falling out (through precipitation) into soil and water and some remaining in the atmosphere, where it will continue to cycle through our ecosystem for millennia – with disastrous affect.
Alarmingly, Ken Buesseler, a senior scientist with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution analyzed thousands of samples of fish from the Fukushima area in mid-2013, and found that the makeup of the radioactive material leaking from the ailing facility had changed since the initial 2011 disaster. He noted that the initial leak included a high concentration of cesium isotopes — which, like all radionuclides, results in increased risk of cancer [source] — however the pollution now flowing into the North Pacific ocean is proportionally much higher in strontium-90, a substance that is considered one of the more hazardous constituents of nuclear wastes and is absorbed differently by the human body than cesium. Exposure to Sr-90 is linked to bone cancer, cancer of the soft tissue near the bone, and leukemia. [source]
Geoengineering – a Force Multiplier
Geoengineering (including chemical spraying practices known colloquially as “Chemtrails”) refers to the stratospheric aerosol (SAG) spraying programs which inject highly toxic chemicals and vast quantities of heavy metals into the Earth’s atmosphere. Although this program is not publicly discussed by government and military, overwhelming evidence has been gathered by independent researchers the world over, which thoroughly documents the means through which global weather patterns are deliberately being manipulated.
“Contrails” by comparison are the short condensation trail that briefly follows commercial airliners. Unlike contrails, geoengineering particulate leaves a thick plume of smoke that is visibly blown from nozzels, not engines, fitted to the wings of commercial and non-commercial (military and unmarked) airliners. Geoengineering clouds also linger in the atmosphere for long periods of time – several hours – something that is not characteristic of water condensation, which disperses within seconds (just like your breathe on a cold winter day.)
So let’s suspend judgment for a moment, disregard the conspiracy/complacency theories that have been carefully crafted around the word “chemtrails”, and look in detail at what we actually know…
In 1996, a research paper, dangerously entitled “Weather as a Force Multiplier: Owning the Weather by 2025” was presented to the United States Air Force “to comply with a directive from the chief of staff of the Air Force”. It explicitly outlines that the government’s motivation to engage in global weather modification practices (quaintly titled “geoengineering”) is “to remain the dominant air and space force in the future”, built on the premise that if you control weather conditions, you better control the population. The geoengineering program is no more than a military “force multiplier”, developed at our expense and without our consent, by the world’s political and financial elite to further the agenda of global control.
But when it comes to weather modification and nuclear programs, that sense of “control” is a dangerous illusion. The untold effects of chemical spraying on human and environmental health mirror those of the failing nuclear experiment, while the cumulative damage created by both programs is potentially exponential. Meanwhile, institutional rhetoric and a deliberate public culture of ignorance dominate discussion of this issue (we can already hear the mindless chanting of the old “tin foil hats” chestnut) continues to serve this agenda.
When the public is poorly educated, their minds are easily controlled – through fear and belittlement of the truth. This tactic has been successfully employed by complacency theorists for centuries. How much more do you want to be deceived?
Thankfully, the scientific community isn’t just bending over and accepting these dangerous lies.
Scientists Speak Out
Retired USDA soil conservationist and wildlife biologist (and organic gardener) Francis Mangels worked for the U.S. Forest Service for over 35 years. He undertook a program of testing the soil in heavily chem-sprayed Lake Shasta area, and found dangerously high levels of aluminum, barium and strontium in soil samples. None of these metals should be present in our soil. Although Mangels noted that “the normal concentration [of these chemicals] in our rains should be zero”, he notes that “these levels are now 10,000 parts per billions [ppb]” in some soil tests. [source]
An expert in his field, Mangels attributes pH over 10-times the alkalinity of normal soil on huge increases of aluminum oxide.
[Click here – here – and here to watch the Shasta County Board of Supervisors Hearing on Geoengineering, 2014]
“Normal background levels of aluminum oxide in the Mt. Shasta snow is 1/2 unit. (In this case, ug/l). Allowable aluminum in drinking water is 50 units. Government action is required at 1,000 units of detected aluminum. The EPA-tested snow on Mt. Shasta shows aluminum at 61,100 units.” [source]
Dr. J. Marvin Herndon
J. Marvin Herndon, Ph.D is a scientist of considerable notoriety. An interdisciplinary scientist, Dr. Herndon earned his BA degree in physics from the University of California, San Diego in 1970 and his Ph.D in nuclear chemistry from Texas A&M University in 1974. Holding Post-Doctoral qualifications in Geochemistry and Cosmochemistry, Herndon has been profiled inCurrent Biography and in 2003 was hailed as the “maverick geophysicist” by The Washington Post.
Dr. Herndon contacted Dane Wigington from www.GeoengineeringWatch.org recently to express his growing concerns about the constant toxic aerosol spraying of our planet and the obvious human health and environmental ramifications we all face from this contamination.
His recent letter to authorities in his region is available here.
In the fall of 2002, a long-time landscaper for the City of Edmonton (David Dickie) began noticing that carefully tended flowers and trees were showing signs of severe nutrient deficiencies. City specifications call for Electrical Conductivity readings no higher than “1” in local soils, but soil samples tested for EC 4.6 to 7-times higher than this maximum permissible level. Dickie wondered if elevated levels of electricity-conducting metals in the soils could be leading to the plants’ “chlorosis” condition. A $33 lab test of snow samples collected in a sterilized container confirmed elevated levels of aluminum and barium.
Norwest Labs lab report #336566 found:
- q aluminum levels: 0.148 milligrams/litre
- q barium levels: 0.006 milligrams/litre [source]
With such damning physical evidence in our skies soil and waterways, why are our governments still denying this practice? If their motivations are indeed benevolent, surely the popularist nature of modern politics suggests that those leaders responsible for such a “beneficial” program would step proudly forward to claim their political victory! But no. Despite a groundswell of pressure, governments refuse to issue formal statements on this matter. This alone should be a red-flag for any conscious and critical thinker.
According to independent scientist Leuren Moret (MA, PhD ABD), former President of the Association for Women Geoscientists and former City of Berkeley Environmental Commissioner:
“Scientific research is always sold to the public with a promise that the benefit will be for the people in order to get them to pay for it. Once the research is finished, the science is always perverted into a weapon used against the people and the environment that benefits the bankers”
This statement was clearly echoed by former government nuclear scientists (and current lecturer for U.C.Davis Department of Chemistry) Dr. Andreas Toupadakis, Ph.D. in a recent Wake Up World article, Quitting the Nuclear Labs – a Scientist’s Plea for World Peace. According to Dr. Toupadakis:
I resigned from a permanent, highly paid, classified position in the Stockpile Stewardship Program at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) in California. I went to LLNL believing that I would be useful in helping to dismantle nuclear weapons and in disposing of their deadly byproducts. That was my desire. Instead, very soon, I found myself expected to work on the maintenance of nuclear weapons. When I realized that within the Lab, environmental or nonproliferation work was but an illusion, I decided to resign. My conscience simply does not allow me to work for the development or maintenance of nuclear weapons.
Looking back I know now that… purely academic projects are sustained in order to lure young scientists into the national labs. I heard this in plain language one Thanksgiving afternoon, sitting around the table with senior weapons scientists: “We need new blood to carry on our weapons research; we need new post-docs in purely basic research”.
So, with considerable evidence of high-level intent, the next logical question is: Are these programs related? And if so, how?
The Geoengineering Hypothesis
Let’s consider an hypothesis…
We know that “meteorological conditions associated with convection and vertical mixing over the Pacific Ocean promote [the] long-distance transport” of radioactive materials through the atmosphere.[source] In fact, European Commission, Science for Environment Policy News Alert suggest that as much as 12.7% of iodine radionuclides from the Fukushima disaster reached the USA and Canada, while 4.5% fell over Russia and 2.8% over the EU. [source]
Evidence shows that the geoengineering and nuclear experiments continue to pump into our atmosphere everything from living biological material to nano sized metallic particulate, the latter of which becomes ionized or electrically charged by sunlight. Therefore, the air in our atmosphere is altered into an electrically charged gas, which responds strongly to electromagnetic radiation such as that produced by Wifi and HAARP technologies, and ever-increasing numbers of cell-phone towers. Barium, found to be a major element in geoengineering particulate, is also known to conduct electromagnetic energy.
When we take into account the increasing amount of radiological contamination in the upper atmosphere, the indefensible continuation of the failing nuclear experiment, the covert chemical spraying and HAARP operations we now know are intended as a military “force multiplier”, and the short-term thinking endemic in modern governments, the next reasonable questions that must be answered are…
- When radioactive nano-sized particles make contact with the newly injected geoengineering “chemical X” (which is generally metallic) what is the reaction?
- Are these radioactive particles adhering, reacting, and then falling out of the atmosphere?
- What is the cumulative effect of airborne radioactivity and chemical spraying on human and environmental health?
- Are the nuclear and geoengineering programs all part of the same high-level agenda?
- Are scientific/military operations performing integrated experiments, covertly applying a combination of atmospheric alterations including chemical, radiation and electromagnetic elements?
- And what of the known biological component of these airborne releases, known as bio-engineering?
Ongoing atmospheric studies show that biological test agents including viruses, bacteria, fungi, mycoplasma, and other biological materials are routinely released as part of this covert spraying operation. According to Professor James F. Tracy in an article for GlobalResearch.ca:
“The most well-known manifestation of such nano-biologicals is the oft-misunderstood Morgellons ailment, an especially unusual and disturbing condition marked by painful dermal lesions through which… nano-fibers [from bio-engineering] protrude.”
In November 2013, French/English language newspaper The Connexion reported that “mysterious stringy filaments” we found falling from the sky over Drôme and Ardèche in Southern France, leaving residents and authorities “mystified”. [source]
Reports of the fibres were first raised on Thursday, but no one has yet been able to identify what they are – giving rise to theories that they are the by-product of plane exhausts.
Inexplicably, “the prefecture for the Drôme said it did not know what the fibres were but said it was not worried and would not be sending them for analysis”.
Clifford Carnicom is staunch and prominent campaigner against geoengineering who, as a former federal employee of the United States government, served for 15 years within the Department of Defense, The Bureau of Land Management, and the United States Forest Service, earning himself the Defense Mapping Agency Aerospace Center Employee of the Year and Geodetic Sciences Departmental Award for outstanding technical, managerial, and cost effective performance. Carnicom also oversees the Morgellons Research Group, a body of concerned citizens, health care professionals, scientific researchers and microbiologists who devote their time to investigating this unfolding syndrome.
According to Mr. Carnicom the presence of nanofibers (observable clumps of fibrous strands)
… have now been discovered repeatedly across all major body systems and functions, including skin, blood, hair, saliva, dental(gum), digestive, ear and urinary samples.
Is there a direct relationship between the alteration of living systems (us) and ecosystems (the environment)? My answer is unequivocally, ‘Yes.’ [source]
When we understand the obvious inter-connection between these programs, we can deduce that this is all part of an integrated atmospheric weapons system – a force multiplier. Although geoengineering is quietly described by government as a benevolent weather modification program, the net effect — uncovered by the scientific community despite years of silence from government — is an airborne electromagnetic assault on humanity. [source]
Amy Worthington, independent researcher and writer, explained in her seminal article: Aerosol and Electromagnetic Weapons in the Age of Nuclear War:
Both the Pentagon’s aerosol operations and its limited nuclear wars are deeply interconnected. We can trace the beginnings of Operation Cloverleaf right to the Strangelove brain of Dr. Edward Teller, father of the hydrogen bomb and proponent of nuking inhabited coast lines to rearrange them for economic projects. Before he died in 2003, Teller was director emeritus of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, where plans for nuclear, biological and directed energy weapons are crafted. In 1997, Teller publicly outlined his proposal to use aircraft to scatter in the stratosphere millions of tons of electrically-conductive metallic materials, ostensibly to reduce global warming.
Shortly after Teller’s presentation, the public began seeing frenetic chemtrailing. In 2000, CBS News admitted that scientists were “looking at drastic solutions for global warming, including manipulating the atmosphere on a massive scale.” CBS confirmed that the plan to load the air with tiny particles would “deflect enough sunlight to trigger global cooling.”
Teller estimated that commercial aircraft could be used to spew these particles at a cost of 33 cents a pound. This gives credence to a report by an airline manager, forced by a compulsory non-disclosure agreement to remain anonymous, that commercial aircraft have been co-opted to assist the military in consummating Project Cloverleaf.
The heavy metals contained in geoengineering particulate include barium, aluminum, arsenic, lead, mercury, copper, manganese, and uranium [source]. In the last 10 years, aluminum levels in rainwater have risen from 7 parts per billion to 3,400 parts per billion — an astounding, nearly 50,000 percent increase. [source]
The effects of heavy metal exposure (in isolation) on human health have been extensively documented:
Elaborating on this point, research published in the Indian Journal of Pharmacology indicates that heavy metals poisoning associated with aerosol spraying programs (as well as other industrial and environmental exposures) disrupts metabolic functions in two ways:
- They accumulate and thereby disrupt function in vital organs and glands such as the heart, brain, kidneys, bone, liver, etc.
- They displace the vital nutritional minerals from their original place, thereb, hindering their biological function. It is, however, impossible to live in an environment free of heavy metals. There are many ways by which these toxins can be introduced into the body such as consumption of foods, beverages, skin exposure, and the inhaled air. [source]
Add to this problem the fact that electromagnetic energy, including WIFI, has been shown to interfere with the human body and brain (which itself is electrical) in particular cell growth, neural activity, cardiac function, hormone production and fertility [source] and we have the conditions for a global health crisis of unprecedented proportions.
And that is exactly what we’re experiencing today.
Enter the pharmacological industry to treat the symptoms of these conditions (but never the cause), the corporate-government-media complex to stifle public debate and protect these unlawful covert operations from genuine scrutiny, and the pseudo-scientific (and hired troll) community to vilify those who see through the deception.
But frankly, we’re not buying it.
When we begin to connect the dots to the thousands of unsafe and often highly toxic chemicals, heavy metals, and hormone disruptors to which we are exposed daily, we then can collectively see that this is not just a one-issue health crisis we face. Rather, with corporations allowed free reign to poison us with impunity… we do not have any way to have any redress of decades of grievances. The ramifications of this are enormous.
Looking Up, Looking Forward
These nuclear, chemical and electromagnetic programs amount to an assault on our very existence. Given that threat it poses, and the questions it raises of those entrusted with our governance, this realization causes many people to go into fear, disbelief, and to shut down. The implications are simply too challenging for many to entertain, much less invest any real time and energy in trying to understand the problem in the level of detail it requires. And so, despite mountains of scientific, environmental and political evidence to the contrary, geoengineering is still written off by many as a “tin foil hat” fantasy.
But let’s get real here… One has only to look up without fear or judgment to see the truth about geoengineering… Or to look critically at geoengineering patents and government documents that demonstrate the reality of these programs… Or to look at our unprecedented rates of physiological dysfunction and disease, for which the government and medical complex has no reasonable explanation. And although we often overlook such problems as a ‘sign of the times’, these are vital elements of the big picture that cannot reasonably be dismissed.
Our health and our future depends on the health of our planet. Gambling with our collective future is a crime, and a grievous violation of natural law.
The only way to stop this assault is to dismantle these programs and the institutions that support them, to actively support scientific, educational, environmental and health research that is designed and executed in transparency, with public welfare in mind, and to educate pilots and scientists who are led to carry out these dangerous environmental programs.
Peace on Earth… for real though.

The government reps then stated that if the general public knew that the aircraft they were flying on were releasing chemicals into the air, environmentalist groups would raise hell and demand the spraying stop.”
