Alachua County Commission Intervenes to Save Santa Fe River From Phosphate Mining Reply

Chris Bird Phosphate Quote 5--3-2016-b

The Alachua County Commission has concerns that a phosphate mining proposal in Bradford County — with possible expansion into Union County — could damage the Santa Fe River and the springs along it.  (More – OSFR)

Below, Excerpt from Chris Bird presentation:  “I will tell you as your environmental protection director, I would say this proposed mine, especially if it spans both counties, is the largest potential impact to the Santa Fe River – that I’ve seen in the time I’ve been with Alachua County, … Potentially, it’s that big.”

Below: Dr Steve Pieczenik informs BoCC he was personally threatened by Jack Hazen during the April 21 Bradford County meeting and characterizes Hazen as a “terrorist”.

Below: Bradford County attorney, Will Sexton forced to publicly disclose that the phosphorus mine application had already been submitted before citizens spoke to commission on the evening of April 21, 2016.  Sexton and the Bradford commission knowingly withheld public notice of the filing.  This deception was apparently used to cancel a community workshop that had been scheduled for the following Friday, however it’s not clear how a fact-based workshop would violate a quasi-judicial restriction that would limit the Bradford commission’s ability to speak.

Gainesville Teen With Fake Gun Shot and Killed by 9 Police Officers 2

Teen Deserved to Be Killed For Being Suicidal?

Police State USA Header

Nine Police Officers Open Fire – Spray Bullets Into Homes and Cars

On April 26, activist, Kali Blount uses barbed parody to highlight recklessly killing of gainesville teenager – Robert Dentmond – by 9 police officers from the Alachua County Sheriff and Gainesville Police departments.

VIDEO

Gainesville Police endanger Majestic Oaks residents as nine officers fire multiple rounds in the dark as they shoot to kill 16 YO boy with fake gun.

Questions Remain:

Were ASO or GPD wearing body cameras or was the event recorded by law enforcement?

Did Dentmond’s sister, family members or friends know the gun was fake before police arrived?

Did Police rush to judgment by overlooking an opportunity to ask questions of family or friends about Denton’s alleged weapon to possibly discover the gun was fake?

Is it true, according to witness remarks, that police denied Dentmond’s sister an opportunity to intervene in order to talk Dentmond into cooperating?

Why did police resort to using tenant-owned vehicles (truck) as a barricade to possible gunfire instead of using their own resources?

Why did police endanger community residents by firing multiple rounds into private vehicles and through exterior walls, narrowly missing residents inside their homes and causing significant private property damage?

Why did GPD and Sheriff choose not to use at least one of several armored vehicles designed for such an event in order to protect officers and safety of the general public as they approached a possibly armed suspect?

How will authorities compensate or “heal” tenants and families who were terrorized by the massive police shooting that killed a 16 YO boy known by the Majestic Oaks community as a peaceful teenager?

If mental health is an issue how can the public be assured that police officers are not mentally disturbed to the point of being “trigger-happy” or racist?

FEMA: Huge Earthquake and Tsunami Due to Destroy Pacific Northwest 4

Tsunami in Pacific Northwest

“The Really Big Earthquake will destroy a sizable portion of the coastal Northwest.”

Fema Official:  “Everything West Of Interstate 5 Is Toast!  Everything West Of Interstate 5 Is Gone!”

“When the Cascadia earthquake begins, there will be, instead, a cacophony of barking dogs…”

“Among natural disasters, tsunamis may be the closest to being completely unsurvivable. The only likely way to outlive one is not to be there when it happens.”

NEW YORKER  7/20/2015   (PDF)

NEW YORKER MAG 7-20-2015-3In fact, the science is robust, and one of the chief scientists behind it is Chris Goldfinger. Thanks to work done by him and his colleagues, we now know that the odds of the big Cascadia earthquake happening in the next fifty years are roughly one in three. The odds of the very big one are roughly one in ten. Even those numbers do not fully reflect the danger—or, more to the point, how unprepared the Pacific Northwest is to face it. The truly worrisome figures in this story are these: Thirty years ago, no one knew that the Cascadia subduction zone had ever produced a major earthquake. Forty-five years ago, no one even knew it existed.

The Pacific Northwest has no early-warning system. When the Cascadia earthquake begins, there will be, instead, a cacophony of barking dogs and a long, suspended, what-was-that moment before the surface waves arrive. Surface waves are slower, lower-frequency waves that move the ground both up and down and side to side: the shaking, starting in earnest.

Soon after that shaking begins, the electrical grid will fail, likely everywhere west of the Cascades and possibly well beyond. If it happens at night, the ensuing catastrophe will unfold in darkness. In theory, those who are at home when it hits should be safest; it is easy and relatively inexpensive to seismically safeguard a private dwelling. But, lulled into nonchalance by their seemingly benign environment, most people in the Pacific Northwest have not done so. That nonchalance will shatter instantly. So will everything made of glass. Anything indoors and unsecured will lurch across the floor or come crashing down: bookshelves, lamps, computers, cannisters of flour in the pantry. Refrigerators will walk out of kitchens, unplugging themselves and toppling over. Water heaters will fall and smash interior gas lines. Houses that are not bolted to their foundations will slide off—or, rather, they will stay put, obeying inertia, while the foundations, together with the rest of the Northwest, jolt westward. Unmoored on the undulating ground, the homes will begin to collapse.

Across the region, other, larger structures will also start to fail. Until 1974, the state of Oregon had no seismic code, and few places in the Pacific Northwest had one appropriate to a magnitude-9.0 earthquake until 1994. The vast majority of buildings in the region were constructed before then. Ian Madin, who directs the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI), estimates that seventy-five per cent of all structures in the state are not designed to withstand a major Cascadia quake. FEMA calculates that, across the region, something on the order of a million buildings—more than three thousand of them schools—will collapse or be compromised in the earthquake. So will half of all highway bridges, fifteen of the seventeen bridges spanning Portland’s two rivers, and two-thirds of railways and airports; also, one-third of all fire stations, half of all police stations, and two-thirds of all hospitals.

Among natural disasters, tsunamis may be the closest to being completely unsurvivable. The only likely way to outlive one is not to be there when it happens. (Complete Article)

Airtran Airways Documented Chemtrail Spraying Over North Florida 25

Documented Aircraft Deployment of Chemical Aerosols Over Florida

________________________________

AIRTRAN Boeing 717-200

AirTran Airways is wholly-owned subsidiary of Southwest Airlines (NYSE: LUV), has been ranked the number one low cost carrier in the Airline Quality Rating study for the past three years.

AirTran Airways offers coast-to-coast service on North America’s newest all-Boeing fleet.

Shame on Southwest Airlines for allowing subsidiary, Airtran Airwways, to enter into a secret contract to spray pollution into our skies.

Click to ZOOM

On Oct 18, I recorded and tracked the progress of Airtran Flt TRS9100 as it sprayed aerosols on a heading of 180 deg (south) before making a U-turn over Gainesville to head north to Atlanta.

It was an easy task to identify Airtran TRS9100 since it was the only aircraft on FlightAware radar that matched the unusual flight path.

On the distance line (above) notice JAX to ATL is 280 SM (statute miles). The flight plan was filed for a route that covered 326 SM. While airborne the flight plan was changed to deviate south to spray aerosols for a total distance of 631 SM from JAX to ATL. Who paid the expenses and how?

Considering the extra fuel, engine time, crew and other expenses – how much is Airtran paid – and by whom –  in a secret contract to spray chemical aerosols over North Florida?

Are there any IRS consequences if the income is not reported?

Realtive Humidity at Flight Level (37,000 ft/11,200 meters) less than 20% at 3 reporting stations. This measured data is hard evidence that formation of persistent contrails of water vapor – as defined by NASA  – was not possible.

We confidently conclude that these persistent jet trails are chemical aerosols of undetermined toxicity, sprayed over populations of citizens, wildlife, crops and  water sheds without due process and without knowledge or consent.

Codepink to Protest Obama Killer Drones in Gainesville, Florida 3

Code Pink Header-BBy Harold Saive – Veterans For Peace, Ch 136

Media Benjamin Mug and book Drone warfareThe November 6 and 7 actions are organized by Codepink in conjunction with Medea Benjamin’s visit to Gainesville.

Benjamin is an activist and author of  Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control, and she has been campaigning to stop the use of killer drones. Her direct questioning of President Obama during his 2013 foreign policy address, as well as her recent trips to Pakistan and Yemen, helped shine a light on the innocent people killed by US drone strikes.

Events for Thursday, Nov., 6th

♦ 6:30 PM: UF Ustler Hall:  Medea Benjamin speaks on Empowering Women Globally in the Peace  Movement.  Reception and book signing to follow.

Events for Friday, Nov., 7th

♦ 11 AM – 2 PM:  CodePINK and Students For Justice in Palestine will host a discussion on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict at the Mennonite Meeting House, located at 1236 NW 18th Ave. (Alligator)

♦ 3 to 5 PM:  PROTEST DRONE WARFARE. Meet at corner of Main St. and University Ave, with march to Prioria Robotics at 4:20 pm. (0.7 mile.)

CodePINK, in conjunction with Occupy Gainesville and Veterans For Peace, will lead a protest against drone warfare starting on Main Street from 3 to 5 p.m.

♦ 6 to 9 PM:  Medea Benjamin discusses her new book, Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control,  at Wild Iris book store, 22 SE Fifth Av., book signing and reception to follow at the Civic Media Center Courtyard.  All events are free and open to the public.   See Gainesville Iguana Article

Prioria Maverick droneDrone manufacturing in Gainesville began in 2003 by a student group at the University of Florida.  When the group went commercial as Prioria Robotics, the City commission authorized the public utitlty – Gainesville Regional Utilities (GRU) to give away services at below market value in order to promote a UF/Gainesville partnered development called “Innovation Square”.  In Nov, 2013 Prioria was awarded a lucrative $4.5 million contract with the Army.   But military contracts like Prioria’s are regarded as little more than pentagon corporate welfare under Bush and now Obama when US policy calls for perpetual wars and illegal invasions into sovereign nations without congressional approval.

The joy of Prioria’s success in selling war machines to the military is not shared with Gainesville and UF’s large anti-war community who deeply resent the involvement of UF, City commission and GRU in promoting war as an easy path to economic development

Although Prioria manufactures an unarmed drone for battlefield surveillance, the aerial device enables the inevitable killing of innocent civilians when the deadly drones later move in to inflict so-called “collateral damage”, a military term of Orwellian double-speak, deliberately sanitized of moral and ethical responsibility.  Substitute “calculated homicide” for “collateral damage” to better approximate the intent.

GRU Prioria Advertisement both Magazines

The City/GRU has shamelessly used print media to promote Prioria and UF’s “Innovation Square”.  The cost of these large advertisements in the Gainesville Magazine and GainesvilleBizReport  is financed on the backs of GRU ratepayers – many of whom protest all forms of war.  Also, it’s not clear if the cost of these expensive ads is split with Prioria or the University of Florida – a State school that directly benefits from ratepayer supported advertisement.

Alligator HeaderActivist group CodePINK to rally at UF against drone warfare

Posted: Friday, October 31, 2014

Ashleigh Hicks, Alligator Contributing Writer

A women-initiated, grass-roots peace and social justice organization will host a series of events next week to protest the use of drones overseas and violence in the Middle East.

Medea Benjamin, author and co-founder of CodePINK, will discuss empowering women globally in the peace movement Thursday at 6:30 p.m. in Ustler Hall

She will present on her latest book, “Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control,” on Nov. 7 from 6 to 9 p.m. at Wild Iris Books at 22 SE Fifth Ave.

A reception and book signing will follow both events, which are sponsored by the UF women’s studies department, the National Organization for Women, the Civic Media Center and the Samuel Proctor Oral History Project.

“I think we need to focus much more on seeking political solutions to global problems because the military ones are not working,” Benjamin said. “If you look at the last 13 years, the U.S. has not crushed extremist groups. It’s only allowed them to proliferate.”

On Nov. 7 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., CodePINK and Students For Justice in Palestine will host a discussion on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict at the Mennonite Meeting House, located at 1236 NW 18th Ave.

CodePINK, in conjunction with Occupy Gainesville and Veterans For Peace, will then lead a protest against drone warfare starting on Main Street from 3 to 5 p.m.

Scott Camil, a Vietnam War veteran internationally known as the “Winter Soldier” for his exposure of war crimes, is a member of Veterans For Peace.

“The world should be allowed and able to solve their problems without murdering each other,” Camil said. “To me, war is just organized murder.”

Events are cosponsored by UF Women’s Studies, NOW, Codepink Gainesville, Veterans for Peace/Gainesville, Wild Iris Bookstore, Civic Media Center, Students for Justice in Palestine, Mennonite Church, Samuel Proctor Oral History Program and Occupy Gainesville.

Pegeen Hanrahan Linked to Rockefeller “Buyout” of Mayors, Governors and Evengelicals to Promote Biomass? 2

Biomass Plant Approved

Rockefeller Brothers Fund Buying Off Evangelicals, Mayors, and Governors – for The Earth

“(…) foundation dollars extended to support these non-green voices have grown dramatically (…). The RBF has supported “allied voices for climate action” that include businesses, investors, evangelicals, farmers, sportsmen, labor, military leaders, national security hawks, veterans, youth, and governors and mayors.(more)

Jurriaan Maessen
ExplosiveReports.Com
February 4, 2013

“The agricultural community is a central force to securing federal policy on climate change. Traditionally not supportive of environmental policy, some in the agricultural community have recognized that they have an economic self-interest in the new energy economy by harvesting wind, solar, and biomass energy on their lands and by using their land to sequester carbon dioxide.PDF Page 14     Grantee: 25×25.org 

In its 2010 review of grants extended from 2005 to 2010, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund admits to buying off (quite literally) so-called “non-green voices”- meaning people outside the environmental community- to sell man-made climate change doctrine to their respective communities.

“(…) foundation dollars extended to support these non-green voices have grown dramatically (…). The RBF has supported “allied voices for climate action” that include businesses, investors, evangelicals, farmers, sportsmen, labor, military leaders, national security hawks, veterans, youth, and governors and mayors.”

This is an actual admission by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund of sustained funding for specific segments to promote the “green” cause. In the document we read that both religious leaders and state/local politicians have been subsidized into selling the myth of man made global warming The report goes on to say that:

“Foundations, including the RBF, have played a significant role in building the capacity of these groups to organize their base members, communicate publicly about their interest in climate solutions, and advocate for policies that will address climate change domestically and internationally. In addition to its direct financial support of these individual groups, the Fund has also provided technical assistance for strategic development, communications planning, and advocacy training.”

Pegeen Hanrahan Bio Rockefeller Brothers

Specifically mentioning the National Board of Governors as beneficiaries, we read:

Governors and mayors have proven to be very effective advocates for climate change solutions domestically and internationally. Across America, states and localities are developing innovative climate programs and serving as laboratories for pioneering approaches. Many have launched climate initiatives in their cities and states and have seen the economic benefits of doing so.”

The review also describes in some detail how the Fund from 1984 onward has poured bucket loads of cash into climate change propaganda-efforts, including strengthening the implementation of Agenda 21 up to and exceeding the 1992 Earth Summit:

“Two strategies underpinned this phase of grantmaking:

1) distilling consensus on climate science and, 2) moving the discussion of climate change from the scientific community into the policy arena.

(…) The RBF organized and funded some of the earliest meetings of advocates addressing climate change. It was also during this period that the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was created in 1988 and formal international negotiations on a climate treaty began in 1991; these culminated in Rio de Janeiro in June 1992 with a U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) that the first President Bush and the U.S. Congress ratified. A review of correspondence between then-RBF president Bill Dietel and program staff clearly indicates that the Rio negotiation and treaty, and the creation of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, were specific aspirations of the RBF program at the time.”

Although from the late 1980s onward, it was smooth sailing for the Fund, by 2009 the Rockefellers hit a snag. Acknowledging that the selling of the IPCC rapport has become increasingly difficult since the Climategate scandal erupted, the Fund is now stepping up its efforts to refuel the heavily diminished effectiveness of the effort:

“While public awareness of the urgency for addressing climate change spiked in 2007, a deep erosion of public trust in climate science was sparked by an unauthorized public release of e-mail messages from the computer system at the University of East Anglia in Britain in late 2009. These e-mails appeared to suggest that scientists were using tricks to hide temperature declines and attempting to discredit scientists who were skeptical of human caused climate change.”

Despite the described “erosion of public trust” the Rockefeller’s at the same time marvel at the results of their grant-making schemes from 2005 to 2010:

“As philanthropic giving has grown over the past several years, with it have grown new organizations, new alliances, and new campaigns. Just a few short years ago, climate change was addressed by a small subset of the environmental movement. It is fair to say that the issue now has a growing movement of its own. Powerful voices from business, faith, national security, youth, labor, and agricultural groups have joined the fight for robust climate change policy.”

To illustrate that this buying off on a mass scale of so-called “non-green voices” by the Rockefellers is far from an incidental funding-program, we know that the Rockefeller Foundation also actively engaged celebrity-journalists. As far back as the mid seventies the Foundation has been busy buying off reporters and funding media-empires into existence.  Even then “climate change” was actively being promoted as a tragic result of human meddling in the affairs of mother earth. Genetically engineered food was already being pushed as the cure to remedy all ills. The 1974 Rockefeller Foundation journal reports:

“Several science editors were asked to participate in Foundation meetings on climate change, food production and interstate conflict, genetic resistance in plants to pests, and aquaculture. Stories appeared subsequently on the front page of The New York Times, and the Associated Press carried substantial stories which were widely used. In each instance, the writers were introduced to our program officers and encouraged to use them as resource people. (Officers are now, in fact, being called on by journalists, particularly in areas of current high news interest such as food production, population problems, environmental issues, and the arts.).”

On several occasions, and in different publications spread throughout its long and sordid past, the Rockefeller Foundation openly brags using media- figureheads for their own purposes. In none of these instances does the RF mention any problem encountered with any of the media moguls they contacted. In the 1974 yearly report, Bill Moyers is mentioned as one of the beneficiaries of information disseminated by the Foundation.

“In preparing its remarkable 25-part series on the world food situation, the New York Times reporters have become acquainted and have established fruitful ongoing relationships with a good many of our officers. Our staff have provided substantial information and further contacts for Bill Moyers in his television series dealing with the problems of global interdependence. These are only a few of the many productive new relationships we have established with representatives of the mass media.”

Another arm of the octopus, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) put out a document in 2009 describing specific tricks used by the Fund to reach congregations unwilling to go along with the UN’s population control programs:

“UNFPA has found that leaders of faith ‐ and interfaith ‐ based organizations are open to discussing reproductive health, if issues are addressed with care and sensitivity.”

These “agents of change” should also be recruited to protect and promote the overall agenda “through countering misinformation campaigns and building social support within the governments for the ICPD (International Conference on Population and Development).”

The ultimate goal of these engagement efforts is clearly described:

“Create a conducive socio‐cultural environment (impacting on behaviour, attitudes and practices) to ultimately promote and mobilize key communities towards achieving the goals of the ICPD PoA (International Conference on Population and Development Programme of Action) and the MDGs (Millennium Development Goals).”

“The National Religious Partnership on the Environment is an alliance of the US Catholic Conference, Coalition on Environment and Jewish Life, National Council of Churches, and the Evangelical Environmental Network that serves more than 100 million Americans.”

Another UN front, called the Interfaith Partnership for the Environment was admittedly founded in the mid 1980s to, as the UNEP website teaches,… inform North American congregations about the serious environmental problems facing life on earth.”

The UNFPA, as the enforcement arm of the overall infrastructure, joined with their brother- and sister-agencies in the UN to encircle the world’s religions reminiscent of a pack of hungry wolves:

“Since 2002, UNFPA has emphasized the integration of culturally sensitive approaches into programming efforts. Toward this end, it has worked closely within communities and with local agents of change, including religious leaders.”

The pattern leaves little for the imagination. The old boys are at it again, using their resources to step up the propaganda another notch. After all, after the discrediting of the global warming contrivance, the globalists will have to increase their flow of ammunition in the infowar if they want to have a chance.

Narcissistic State: Death By Immediate Gratification 1

The Narcissistic State:  Max Keiser and Stacey Herbert discuss how consumers are manipulated to make decisions against their own best interests.

MaxKeiser.com  Oct 28, 2014

Max Keiser and Stacey Herbert-bMax Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss nudging consumers like pigeons and mental patients into acting as the technocratic elite wish them to behave – more consumption, more selfies, more fatal masturbation.

This outcome is achieved through rewarding narcissistic behaviour with plastic trinkets and poker chips which make subjects feel a false sense of empowerment by the decisions they’ve been programmed to make.

Max and Stacey look at examples of successful nudging in the UK where the electorate is bought off with games of chutes and property ladders for desired narcissistic reactionary response instead of rational, long-term planning.

If nudging does not work, however, there is always bludgeoning as is done in the US where the Internal Revenue Service (I.R.S.) has been seizing the bank deposits of non-complying citizen-pigeons who have not incurred massive debts.

Look Up to See Why Most Contrails Are Really Chemtrails 8

No Engine Combustion = No Water Vapor = No Contrails = No Persistent Contrails = Chemtrails

No Contrails-aOnce again, the hypocrisy and desperate misrepresentations from FAA, NOAA, NASA and official alphabet agencies is glaring.

This past week saw meteorologists in Florida predicting a repeated pattern of warm, moist air and afternoon thunderstorms created by an Atlantic sea-breeze traveling west across the peninsula.

However, from daybreak to past 1 PM in Alachua County, Gainesville and U. Florida, the skies were clear and gradually transitioned from partly cloudy to overcast by around 2 PM.

During this period, Flight Radar24 reported over 100 commercial flights transitioning Alachua County within 30 deg above the horizon for viewing by observers on the ground.Flight Radar 24 logo

Despite the humid conditions and forecast for afternoon rain, aircraft were witnessed and photographed with no contrails or persistent contrails visible overhead for 7 hours (7 AM to 2 PM) after which the rain clouds formed to produce 100% overcast conditions.

Observations like this are made day after day with relative humidity (RH) above 30,000 ft. ranging between 20% to, less frequently, 50% RH.

On 6/16/2014, and despite the forecast for humid conditions at ground level to 15,000 feet where rain clouds are formed, Jacksonville reported RH below 30% at flight levels from 30 to 40,000 feet.

CFM56_Jet EngineThese simple observations coupled with data from weather stations confirm the efficiency of the high-bypass turbofan engine at nearly abolishing most normal contrail formations – revealing chemtrails as the official demon.

The high-bypass turbofan is a virtual propeller-driven engine that only requires 20% combustion (water vapor) to produce all necessary thrust.  The engine will rarely produce a visible contrail above 30,000 feet even with forecasts of high thunderstorm activity in the affected region.

Theoretically, this low-combustion and low water vapor engine (Series CFM64) is capable of producing a persistent contrail but only in the most extreme conditions of near “saturated” relative humidity approaching 100%.  But when you examine all the global weathersonde data available at the U. Wyoming back to the beginning of 2014, you may find no reports of near saturated RH above above 30,000 ft.  Zero!.

It’s very important to know that the near inability of the high bypass turbofan engine to produce a normal contrail dramatically reduces the probability that this engine could ever produce a full-blown persistent contrail.

This simple procedure is easily reproducible by amateur observers on the ground to demonstrate that chemical aerosols are being sprayed to mimic what the FAA and NASA disinfo squads would have the American people believe are normal water-vapor, persistent contrails.

Your awareness that aircraft have been secretly spraying toxic aerosols into your breathable atmosphere since the mid-1990’s should cause you to take immediate action to notify your elected representatives to take action to stop this damaging pollution..

You can start at the City and County level. Take advantage of the Sheriff’s department “iWATCH” program where crimes can be reported. See how we do it in Alachua County (click here)

 

Mythology of Sudden On/Off Jet Trail as “Normal”

Chemtrails Over Dry Lake California_01

How many on/off trails do you see over this dry desert?

Chemtrails on and offA few novice observers have been swayed by agents of contrail disinformation to believe the atmosphere at flight levels above 30,000 ft. can contain perturbed parcels of high relative humidity (RH) within a column of air dominated by low RH.

These “agents” will attempt to convince you that a contrail will abruptly start and stop when an aircraft flies through these “imaginary” perturbations of mixed atmosphere.

1) Perturbations of mixed atmosphere DO exist, but almost never at flight levels above 30,000 ft.  If the pilot encounters turbulance of vertical mixing, he/she will fly to a higher altitude to avoid the bumpy ride.

2)  “In the atmosphere, vertical mixing is sometimes discernible as a form of atmospheric turbulence.” (source) –  This is why jet aircraft are routed at altitudes above 30,000 ft. where turbulence or vertical mixing is least likely. Clear skies and absence of towering cumulus are positive for the absence of vertical mixing.  Discussions of vertical mixing are usually confined to weather events below 18,000 feet where surface temperatures warm the dense atmosphere and associated, volatile water vapor.  Vertical mixing of a rogue parcel will cause it to seek equilibrium with the dominant environment of colder, denser atmosphere. This action makes it impossible for a parcel of cold, dry air to exist for very long immediately adjacent to a column of warmer, moister air.

3) Verical mixing (perturbation) of atmospheric parcels above 30,000 ft. will have little effect on the visibility of contrails since the relalative humidity in each case will be approximately the same and well below the necessary high saturation of RH for visible contrail formation. Even in a theoretical case, the boundaries between parcels are sufficiently diffused where any affected contrail would exhibit a more gradual and feathered opacity over hundreds of feet – not a sudden and instantaneous stop and start with uniform density within only 5 feet.

It’s therefore, irrational to accept that sudden on-off trails are always a result of instantaneous changes in RH – especially when the skies are free from towering cumulus and exhibit a clear blue background.

So, in every case where the trail suddenly goes on and off is your evidence of a man-made mechanical switch in the chemical sprayer as opposed to the myth of plausible deniability presented by the “agents”.

Your Eyes Are a Powerful Scientific Tool

The morphology (shape) of the on-off trail adds more evidence to conclude chemical aerosols have been sprayed.

eye and telescopeNormal water vapor trails always exhibit a homogenous appearance resembling “steam”. Water and water vapor are simple H2O with no additional compounds to confuse the appearance. A chemical aerosol can be differentiated from water vapor by the presence of compounds with variable molecular weights detectable by normal observation with the human eye. The “chemistry” in chemtrails can frequently be observed separating into different layers and densities – a behavior completely beyond the ability of water vapor and resultant ice crystals (normal contrails) to exhibit.

Taken together, the sudden on-off trail plus the additional observation of chemical compounds separation (clumping, extrusions) is the slam-dunk for chemtrail identification.

Chemtrails on and off-exhibits

 

Since 80% of the air providing thrust bypasses direct combustion, the engine exhaust is not capable of producing the water vapor required to form a contrail.

Originally Posted at EXECUTIVE REASONING

Jet Engines From Zero to Ultrahigh bypass

The main products of hydrocarbon fuel combustion in a jet engine are carbon dioxide and water vapor.

In older designs of Ramjet and “low-bypass” jet engines, contrails were readily formed at altitudes above 26,000 feet when water vapor (produced by fuel combustion) raised the relative humidity past the saturation point of the atmosphere outside the aircraft.

Water vapor, blown out the engine exhaust would form a visible contrail of ice crystals as it cooled at a distance of approximately one and one-half wing-spans behind the engine. Tiny particulates of sulfur in the jet exhaust would allow the super-cooled water to crystallize into the familiar jet contrail formation that almost always dissipated within several seconds behind the aircraft.

How a High-Bypass Jet Works

The efficiency of high bypass jet engine design is a radical departure from the older low-bypass engines.

Why Modern High Bypass Jet engines almost never produce contrails:

The term “high bypass” refers to the high ratio of thrust produced by air that is not subjected directly to hydrocarbon fuel combustion. Since 80% of the air providing thrust bypasses direct combustion it is not capable of producing the water vapor required to form a contrail.

At high altitudes this water vapor emerges into a cold environment, and the local increase in water vapor can raise the relative humidity of the air past saturation point. The vapor then condenses into tiny water droplets which freeze if the temperature is low enough. These millions of tiny water droplets and/or ice crystals form the contrails. The time taken for the vapor to cool enough to condense accounts for the contrail forming some way behind the aircraft’s engines. At high altitudes, supercooled water vapor requires a trigger to encourage deposition or condensation. The exhaust particles in the aircraft’s exhaust act as this trigger, causing the trapped vapor to rapidly condense. Exhaust contrails rarely occur below 8,000 m (26,000 ft), only if the temperature there is below −40 °C (−40 °F), and if the relative humidity is over 60%. (Wiki)

The CFM56 first ran in 1974[1] and, despite initial export restrictions, is now one of the most common turbofan aircraft engines in the world, with more than 20,000 having been built[2] in four major variants. It is most widely used on the Boeing 737 airliner and, under military designation F108, replaced the Pratt & Whitney JT3D engines on many KC-135 Stratotankers in the 1980s, creating the KC-135R variant of this aircraft. It is also the only engine (CFM56-5C) used to power the Airbus A340-200 and 300 series. The engine (CFM56-5A and 5B) is also fitted to Airbus A320 series aircraft. (Wiki)

Consumers Ask SVC For Protection Against Unfair GRU Utility Tax

9/9/2014 Gainesville, FL — After months of waiting, one North Central Florida resident received a response from GRU about a potential refund on what he calls an improperly taxed charge. After 95 days, the utility company denied Jim Konish’s request Monday saying,

“all such accounts are located within the municipal limits of the city of Gainesville and all such accounts paid city tax that was due the municipality… and the accounts are not due a refund or a credit of the city tax

Environmental Protection Committee Gives Plum Creek Low Approval Reply

At the 8/5/2014 meeting, EPAC Chairwoman, Mary Alford asked board members to list positives and negatives about the PLUM CREEK initiative.

The negative side is interesting and lists PLAN EAST GAINESVILLE (PEG) as a loser. (EPAC Meeting Agenda –  PDF)

EPAC Plum Creek List - GOOD and BAD.EPAC – Agenda August 5, 2014

It was asserted that opinions expressed by the participants in Plum Creek visioning meetings, alone, make the case for this negative assessment.

One example is comments by GRU’s Ed Regan.

    “This is a chance to build a safe community in terms of crime and all that sort of stuff. It’s a real important part of urban design, and we made some mistakes in that regard in Gainesville”

“A chance to make the whole thing more liveable, affordable and comfortable”
— Ed Regan, GRU

Ed Regan’s comments speak more to a utopian concept where Plum Creek is walled-off from the failed “urban design” and crime in East Gainesville.  But Regan makes a valid point about “affordability”, since Plum Creek will avoid the high GRU/GREC Biomass rates with Clay Electric designated as the main energy provider. (Video)

The district historically identified as the target for Plan East Gainesville (PEG) has little to do with the visioning expectations for Plum Creek made by stakeholders – most of whom do not even live in East Gainesville.

Instead, Plum Creek Visioning participants of “means” look forward to an entirely new community, not intended to be identified with PEG where the largely black populations have been betrayed by false promises from City leaders for decades.

It’s finally becoming apparent to District 1 voters that the long delayed promises of PEG – like Plum Creek – has repeatedly been used to hijack elections through pressure tactics applied by political party operatives.

Candidate, Ken Cornell “MY STANCE ON PLUM CREEK”

We can’t afford to let one of the United States’ largest landowners (Plum Creek Inc.) change the direction of our County by eliminating many protections that safeguard our environment. To build a new city – 12 miles east of east Gainesville, east of Newnan’s Lake on an already impaired watershed – will pull valuable investments from existing municipalities where taxpayers live and work. Our Comprehensive Plan, reflecting decades of participation by the general public, allows for targeted development around our existing municipalities to foster real jobs while protecting the strategic ecosystem on which we all depend.

Alachua County citizens deserve a commissioner who listens, learns, and then works to accomplish our shared goals. I will always put the people of Alachua County first over any corporation. (website)

Ken Cornell CampaignCornell – the pick of the Sierra Club environmentalists, specifically promises to protect the County’s Comprehensive plan.

GRU/GREC Biomass Fugitive Dust Health Issues Continue Reply

Public Works employees every day wear protective masks to shield themselves from particulate pollution and odors.” – Letter to the Gainesville Sun

Harold SaiveOn June 2, 2014 talked with a County employee listed as a complainant on the County’s notarized “Fugitive Dust Affidavit” who confirmed wearing a filter mask was necessary to provide personal protection against fugitive dust from the GRU/GREC biomass facility emissions.

GREC Biomass Plant Fugitive Dust Health Threat to Alachua County Employees

The Gainesville Renewable Energy Center (GREC) is a 100-MW biomass power facility located in Gainesville, Florida.

GREC is owned by Energy Management, Inc., BayCorp Holdings Ltd., and Starwood Energy Inc., as well as by certain principals of Fagen, Inc., the contractor that built the facility.

With a grandiose vision to be seen as a leader in solving man-made global warming , the Gainesville City commission decided to enter into a $3 Billion power purchase agreement (PPA) at a time when Gainesville Regional Utilities had no need for additional base power generation.

Fugitive Dust-MaskIn addition to questions about the ethics of a financially irresponsible PPA contract that has raised electric rates to the highest in the State of Florida, the emissions from the incinerator now present a realistic public health hazard.

On May 20th the Alachua County Commission entered into a questionable agreement with GREC (Gainesville Renewable Energy Center) that prevents the County from challenging GREC’s requested permits in exchange for providing $96,000  to perform additional 9 months of ambient air monitoring through October, 2014.

Of major public health concern is the ongoing risks to Alachua County employees and nearby residents of Hague, Turkey Creek and other communities  exposed to particulates of fugitive dust and foul odor associated with the biomass chips.

Although initial noise complaints from 2013 appear to have diminished with the installation of a baffle in the generator stack, the noise remedy has nothing to do with hazardous emissions of particulates that are inhaled by County employees and anyone else within several mile radius of the incinerator.

The monitoring of fugitive dust began at the end of January, but County workers and homeowners of the Turkey Creek and nearby communites are breathing a yet-unreported amount of toxic emissions.

Gainesville Sun Letter to the editor , 5/25/2014

“The Sun reported that the Alachua County Commission majority approved a deal under which the county will give up its rights to challenge or comment on air pollution permits being sought by the limited liability wood-burning electricity-generation entity known as the Gainesville Renewable Energy Center. GREC’s energy speculators will relieve the county of a $96,000 bill for particulate monitoring.

The Sun did not report that county Public Works employees every day wear protective masks to shield themselves from particulate pollution and odors. Why should The Sun?

The commission majority has concluded that GREC’s energy speculators have taken “reasonable precautions to prevent such emissions” — the standard required by law.

The commission majority also has concluded that even if plant odor “interferes with the comfortable use and enjoyment of life,” it does not “unreasonably” do so — the standard required by law.

Nothing to see here. Time to move along.”

 In 2013, County Employees were allowed to submit a notarized “Affidavit For Fugitive Dust” complaint form.  This process logged about 20 County employee complaints at the maintenance facility located next to the GREC generator. Even as the complaints listed moderate to severe health issues, the opportunity for employees to continue filing complaints came to an unexplained end on 11/21/2013.

But the the biomass hotline, which continued through 2/7/2014 included more complaints from County employees suggesting the opportunity for county employees to file an “affidavit”was arbitrarily ended on 11/21/2013 for reasons that remain unclear.
Furthermore, no records are available from either the County and/or GRU/GREC as to how the complaints in the affidavits were resolved to the satisfaction of the employee. (WUFT report on 2/7/2014 closure)

Irregularities in timing of Call Center Closing vs. Media Coverage

On 2/5/2014, WUFT  most correctly reported the GREC Call Center would close on 2/7/2014

On 2/14/2014 – a week following closing – GRU reported the GREC call Center complaint line was being considered for closure due to slow response.

A public records request confirmed the final complaint to the call center was logged on 2/10/2014.

The problem with each reporting system is the failure of the responding agency (GRU/GREC) to file a public report confirming the complaints in the Fugitive Dust affidavit and Biomass Hot line had been solved to the satisfaction of the complainant.  Without documentation of resolution, the employee and citizen complaints remain open and awaiting resolution.

Once a citizen files a complaint it’s presumed that it’s not necessary to re-file a complaint with each and every instance. nInstead, it’s incumbent on GREC to resolve the complaint to the written satisfaction of each complainant.

The GRU/GREC’tactic of wearing out the complainants with non-responses does does nothing to solve the fundamental health risk to employees and citizens.

GRU Pushes for Closing of Call Center Established for Receiving GREC Complaints

The Gainesville Regional Utilities (GRU) released a press statement recommending the closure of the call center established for receiving complaints regarding Gainesville Renewable Energy Center (GREC) from the local residents. Gainesville Regional Utilities, which pays for the call center, issued a press release requesting local government officials to close the call center and recommended that all concerns should be directly routed to GREC.

GREC could cut line for call center

Written by CARL MCKINNEY

ALACHUA – Only 14 complaints came into the call center for the Gainesville Renewable Energy Center (GREC) biomass plant in the last month, causing local officials to suggest shutting it down.

Since the biomass plant went online last August, residents of the Turkey Creek neighborhood in Alachua have been vocal about issues with noise from the plant. A high volume of calls were coming in to the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office, the Alachua Police Department and the Gainesville Police Department, prompting a panel of local leaders to establish the call center, paid for by Gainesville Regional Utilities (GRU).  (Source)

Agencies Halt Special Biomass Complaint Line on Feb 7th, 2014

Due to the low call volume and the responsiveness of GREC in addressing citizen complaints, the call center will no longer process calls, effective Friday, February 7. Instead, concerns related to the biomass facility should be reported directly to GREC at 386-315-8028. In the event of an emergency, citizens should continue to dial 911. (Source)

TV20 Weatherman Forecasts Clear Skies but Geoengineering Aerosols Cloud Gainesville 2

WCJB TV20 News Header

WCJB Bill Quinlan Mug WCJB WeatherOn Nov 9, 2012, WCJB Weatherman, BIll Quinlan was too quick to brag about his University of Florida “Gator Growl” forecast for clear skies.

Quinlan’s forecast for dry conditions was hacked when a sky full of geoengineering aerosols produced unexplained cloudiness.

The event was documented by Hatrick Penry who used the NASA Appleman contrail forecast chart to explain why the clouds could not be natural water vapor and concluded they were artificial clouds produced by geoengineering aerosols (aka chemtrails).

Geoengineering The Skies in North Florida 4-14-2014 8

4/14 2014 – Gainesville, Florida:

High altitude atmospheric data reveals no conditions of near saturated relative humidity exist at flight levels above 29,000 feet (8,841 meters) to explain formation of persistent contrails and/or persistent-spreading contrails in this example.

High altitude atmospheric data reveals no conditions of near saturated relative humidity exist at flight levels above 29,000 feet (8,841 meters) to explain formation of persistent contrails and/or persistent-spreading contrails in this example.

The absence of near-saturated relative humidity points to release of non water vapor jet emissions as deliberate and covert deployment of aerosols into the troposphere. (1)

Relative humidity is the amount of moisture in the air compared to what the air can “hold” at that temperature. When the air can’t “hold” all the moisture, then it condenses as dew. (Dew Point) (2)

The USAF contrail science facts document requires that relative humidity (RH)  be near saturation. (ie: RH near 100% ) at the altitude where the aircraft is flying.

” If the atmosphere is near saturation, the contrail may exist for some time. Conversely, if the atmosphere is dry, the contrail will dissipate quickly.” (3)

The Case for Covert Geoengineering to Produce Deliberate Surface Warming and Climate Change.

man_made_global_warming_is-chemtrails-xyThe IPCC and NASA Agree on significant climate change effects of contrails and thin, high (Cirrus) clouds.

“Contrails tend to warm the Earth’s surface, similar to thin high clouds”. (4)

Artificial clouds sprayed by jet aircraft can “change the climate and affect natural resources”. (5)

Deforestation Has Extreme Consequences to Global Warming Reply

Deforestation scientific American

“Deforestation Adds More Atmospheric CO2 than the Sum Total of Cars & Trucks on the World’s Roads” (Source)

Comment: For those who agree with the UN/IPCC version of Global Warming/Climate Change, this article presents compelling reasons to oppose new developments that clear-cut existing woodlands that, not only destroy habitat, but add tremendous Greenhouse gas pollution to the atmosphere. In Gainesville and Alachua County Florida, PLUM CREEK, INC is planning a 10,000 home plus commercial development that will remove trees and vegetation that turns CO2 into oxygen through photosynthesis. See EnvisionAlachua website

By most accounts, deforestation in tropical rainforests adds more carbon dioxide to the atmosphere than the sum total of cars and trucks on the world’s roads. According to the World Carfree Network (WCN), cars and trucks account for about 14 percent of global carbon emissions, while most analysts attribute upwards of 15 percent to deforestation.

The reason that logging is so bad for the climate is that when trees are felled they release the carbon they are storing into the atmosphere, where it mingles with greenhouse gases from other sources and contributes to global warming accordingly. The upshot is that we should be doing as much to prevent deforestation as we are to increase fuel efficiency and reduce automobile usage. *** continue
