      Mystery Contrails May Be Modifying Weather

      By William Thomas

      SEATTLE, Washington, January 12, 1999 (ENS) - U.S. Air Force aerial tankers
      may be causing and seeding clouds to modify the weather. The condensation
      trails and chemicals spread by these aircraft could be what is making some
      people sick in Tennessee, Connecticut, New Hampshire, New York, Nevada,
      Idaho, Mississippi, Montana, Oklahoma, Washington state and California.

      Tommy Farmer, a former engineering technician with Raytheon Missile Systems,
      has been tracking patterns of jet contrails phenomena for more than a year.
      Farmer has "positively identified" two of the aircraft most often involved
      in the aerial spraying incidents as a Boeing KC-135 and Boeing KC-10. Both
      big jets are used by the US Air Force for air to air refueling. A Boeing
      T-43 used for navigation training and mapping may also be involved.

      Confirming reports from eye-witnesses across the United States, Farmer
      reports that all aircraft are painted either solid white or solid black with
      the exception of two KC-135s which were in training colors - orange and
      white. No identifying markings are visible.

      Farmer has collected samples of what he calls "angel hair" sprayed by the
      mystery aircraft on six occasions since February, 1998. Four samples have
      been taken since November, 1998.
      Farmer says that globular filaments resembling ordinary spider webs,
      "usually fall in clumps or wads ranging from pencil eraser size to the size
      of a balled up fist."

      Winds often whip the cobweb-like material into filaments as long as 50 feet
      (15.3 metres). Farmer told ENS that the sticky substance "melts in your
      hands" and "adheres to whatever it touches."

      Farmer urges caution to collectors after becoming ill after his first
      contact with the "angel hair." Like Bakersfield, California dentist Dr. Greg
      Hanford and other ground observers exposed to the spraying, Farmer's ensuing
      sore throat and sinus infection lasted several months.

      After repeatedly observing aircraft spraying particulates "in front of and
      into cloud systems," Farmer is "fairly certain the contrail phenomena is one
      part of a military weather modification weapons system."

      He notes that because the chemical contrails allow much more moisture to
      form inside cloud systems, severe localized storms result from the aerial
      seeding while surrounding areas that have surrendered their moisture to the
      storm cells experience drought.

      The huge Xs being traced by formations of tanker jets in the sky can be
      tracked by satellite and coordinated with the crossed-beams of ionospheric
      heaters to heat the upper atmosphere - changing its temperature and density
      and enhancing the storm's effects.

      Based in Gakon, Alaska, this unclassified joint U.S. Air Force and Navy
      project known as the High Altitude Auroral Research Project (HAARP) has for
      the past several years been using phased array antennas to steer powerful
      beams of tightly-focused radio waves "to stimulate," heat and steer sections
      of the upper atmosphere.
      Awarded in 1985 to MIT physicist Bernard Eastlund, HAARP's commercial patent
      claims that directed energy beams of more than one-billion watts can be used
      for "altering the upper atmosphere wind patterns using plumes of atmospheric
      particles as a lens or focusing device" to disturb weather thousands of
      miles away.

      In an interview with this reporter, Eastlund admitted, "I had looked at
      using this intense beam, which can be angled, to do some experiments in
      terms of guiding the jetstream, moving it from one spot to another. I
      presume it is possible, which might lend credence to these other things."

      In a U.S. Air Force research study, "Weather as a Force Multiplier" issued
      in August, 1996, seven U.S. military officers outlined how HAARP and aerial
      cloud-seeding from tankers could allow U.S. aerospace forces to "own the
      weather" by the year 2025. Among the desired objectives were "Storm
      Enhancement," "Storm Modification" and "Induce Drought."

      According to the Air Force report, "In the United States,
      weather-modification will likely become a part of national security policy
      with both domestic and international applications."
      Within 30 years, the Air Force foresees using Weather Force Support Elements
      with "the necessary sensor and communication capabilities to observe,
      detect, and act on weather-modification requirements to support U.S.
      military objectives" by using "using airborne cloud generation and seeding"
      techniques being developed today, the 1996 Air Force report says.

      But on its HAARP website, the U.S. Navy says, "The HAARP facility will not
      affect the weather. Transmitted energy in the frequency ranges that will be
      used by HAARP is subject to negligible absorption in either the troposphere
      or the stratosphere - the two levels of the atmosphere that produce the
      earth's weather. Electromagnetic interactions only occur in the near-vacuum
      of the rarefied region above about 70 km known as the ionosphere."

      Still, according to the Air Force's 1996 report, other routine
      weather-modification missions will deploy "cirrus shields" formed by the
      chemical contrails of high-flying aircraft "to deny enemy visual and
      infrared surveillance."

      When it is completed, the HAARP antenna array will consist of 180 antennas
      on a total land area of about 33 acres. The final facility will have a total
      transmitter power of about 3,600 kilowatts. When the HAARP facility is
      completed, the transmitter will be able to produce approximately 3.6 million
      watts of radio frequency power, the HAARP website states. The Air Force says
      HAARP transmitters have been designed to operate "very linearly so that they
      will not produce radio interference to other users of the radio spectrum."

      Farmer guesses that besides its obvious tactical military applications,
      aerial-seeding of contrail-clouds aligned in HAARP's characteristic
      grid-patterns could be part of a secret U.S. government initiative to
      address the global weather crisis brought about by atmospheric warming.

      The aircraft spraying that has sickened Americans across the country may not
      be confined to the United States. On August 11, 1998, "USA Today" reported
      dozens of residents of Quirindi, Australia "swearing they saw cobwebs fall
      from the sky" after unidentified aircraft passed overhead.
