At the request of some friends, I watched the 15-minute video by Jeff Rense and Dane Wigington titled “The End of Natural Weather.” Their video is full of myths about contrails and geoengineering with HAARP and Fukushima myths thrown in for added effect. Their video claims our government has changed our weather by dumping chemicals from high flying jet aircraft.
Jeff and Dane claim their photos of normal jet contrails are government-caused chemtrails because they persist longer than other “normal” contrails. The fact is contrails are well understood in atmospheric science. Contrails persist longer when the air at their altitude is more humid and cold enough to cause water droplets to turn to ice. Spreading is dependent upon natural turbulence.
Jeff and Dane claim “no natural weather exists anymore” as they ignore the many scientific studies that prove there is nothing unnatural about our current weather. Unfortunately, some people believe contrail alarmists rather than real science.
In fact, most people first believe what they want to believe and then reject facts that disagree with their belief. Thus, they never progress beyond their false beliefs.
Since the dawn of the human race, false beliefs have fooled people. Some false beliefs are harmless but others are not. Aztec priests cut out the hearts of live people in the false belief this would bring rain for their crops. People set fire to innocent ladies because they believed these ladies were witches. Today, belief in global warming is used to tear down America’s energy production.
The solution to this irrationality is available but few people use it to kill their myths. Some people prefer myths over truth, especially when myths predict a doomsday. Even the newspapers know, “If it bleeds, it leads.”
More than 2000 years ago, Aristotle and Plato found ways to distinguish between truth and fiction. Since then, some very smart people, including Popper, Einstein, Feynman, Kemeny, and others, helped develop the scientific method. Today we know the scientific method is the only way we humans can separate truth from fiction.
The scientific method is for everyone, not just for scientists. It’s not hard and it’s common sense. Watch this one-minute video that shows Richard Feynman teaching students the scientific method. You will learn more from this one-minute video than you will by watching hours upon hours of videos that promote the chemtrail myth.
My friends also sent me other websites to review.
Chemtrails911 shows some US Military contracts for 2007. However, these contracts do not relate to chemtrails. They are just what they say they are: military contracts.
New Age of Inoculation talks about nanotechnology in medicine and implies evil delivery of this technology is part of chemtrails. Sorry, any evil delivery of this technology will not be done at 35,000 ft and has nothing to do with chemtrails. Some of what this article discusses is low-level spraying to reduce diseases.
Rense published “What Chemtrails Really Are“. The writer has no idea what she is writing about. Just because someone puts together an article with buzz words believers want to hear, does not mean the article is correct. It is not. It is complete nonsense.
Let’s look at these alarmists claims another way.
Suppose all this scary technology has potential to be developed. Who would you rather have control this technology: America or Russia and China? I choose America. Never think you gain anything by restricting military research. It is what is saving your butt. If we were to restrict America’s military research, then America will become subject to China or Russia. That is the real world. It’s a jungle out there.
If you are concerned about advances in science and technology, your first action should be to vote for people who are true Americans who will support America. Yet, many who object to military technology are the same people who ranted against Romney for being a neocon or a Mormon and thereby put the most dangerous enemy we have in the White House. Not smart. Not smart at all.
Get real and get smart. Science and technology are the force behind military strength. The country that dominates in military technology will rule the future. China and Russia have very good scientists and engineers, unrestricted by global warming and chemtrail believers, who are rapidly advancing their military capability. One slip by America and we will be their slaves.
Learn how to vote to improve America. This is the subject of my articles on the True Voting Principle that some tea party folks reject because it is a solution rather than an alarm. Your first duty should be to learn how to vote to save America.
Alarmists love chemtrails.
My friend Jim White of NorthWestLibertyNews (now changed to The Liberty Brothers Radio Show) interviewed Elana Freeland about her book “Chemtrails, HAARP, and the Full Spectrum Dominance of Planet Earth.” She talks about Morgellons (a delusional belief). Her book talks about HAARP, MKULTRA, full-spectrum dominance, and wireless access to our bodies and brains. Her book and interview are bunk.
Here are some well-deserved one-star ratings of her book on Amazon:
Pure barking madness: This gets 5 star reviews because of audience self selection for conspiracy theorists. It’s such sheer conflated rubbish that sensible people would never buy this.
Pure bunk with no relationship to good science. I have good knowledge of HAARP, and the things she says are totally out of the realm of reality.
Buy this book if you have a low IQ: And believe in ghosts, invisible men in the sky, aliens shot Kennedy, Obama is a Muslim spy, or other such 3 year old nonsense.
Skip “Skip”: These web-selling and book selling chem-tales have been very popular with the Chicken Little and anti-government set for several years now. Hey, want to buy my magic chemical that the auto industry doesn’t want you to know about; you’ll get 87 mpg guaranteed! No, how about my device to plug into the wall and cut your electric bill in half? Guaranteed!
A chemtrail believer comes to Kalispell to talk about the water compact.
Dr. Kate Vandemoer is a prominant chemtrail believer. As such, she does not follow the scientific method and we cannot trust her opinion on anything. Her website makes unscientific alarmist claims about chemtrails.
Her Geoengineering Weather says:
No longer a secret then, we know what they are spraying, why they are spraying, and the additional tools that are used to manipulate the human environment and inject trouble into our very breathing space. While each one of these tools is dangerous in itself, the combined use of HAARP, chemtrails, and nanotechnology is wreaking havoc across America. When you artificially heat the atmosphere, change its electrical properties, and send vibrational pulses into the earth, what is unleashed is something that cannot now be controlled or predicted.
Her Geoengineering Disaster says:
But as readers of this blog have pointed out, ‘geoengineering’ as chemtrails, HAARP, the explosion of the BP rig in the Gulf of Mexico, earthquake generation, tornado activity, and now the flooding of the entire mid-west via the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers are simply activities that create or have magnified disaster. The ‘crisis’ created allows the government the ‘opportunity’ to step in and take over.
What is developing in the midwest from the Dakotas to Missouri is a deliberate food disaster of epic proportions, and it originates in the manipulation of the hydrologic cycle in the upper basin states. Crops cannot be planted because it is too wet from rain, and those crops already underway in the lower basin states are underwater and long gone.
Her Why Spray the Skies says:
Edward Griffin’s excellent film entitled ‘What in World are they Spraying” educated us all to the deadly toxins that are being sprayed into the atmosphere as those stripes across the sky called ‘chemtrails’, or ‘persistent contrails’. It is geoengineering disaster for us all.
Now comes the follow up film called “Why in the World are they Spraying” that begins to fill in the picture…and its all about world domination.
Who is doing the spraying? This is Satan’s design, and Satan’s confusion.
Dr. Kate is a pseudo scientist. Nevertheless, being one gets you attention, interviews, and speaking engagements.
You would not expect someone like Dr. Kate to give you a reliable opinion of the Northwest Montana CSKT Water Compact.
Nevertheless, Jim White did an interview with Dr. Kate about her opinion of the Water Compact. The title is “Population Control via Water Control” because her thesis is the water compact is bad because it is a government conspiracy to control population in Montana. If you have an hour or so to waste, you can listen to her interview. She gives her alarmist opinions but no facts to show whether or not the Water Compact is a good or bad idea.
There’s a market for this kind of nonsense but I will not engage in it.
A few weeks ago, I talked to an real expert on the Water Compact for over an hour. He explained to me how the CSKT Compact does NOT change the Montana Constitution or impact water rights across the state. He explained to me how Water Compact alarmists have not paid proper attention to past court rulings and misinterpret how the Montana Constitution applies to the CSKT reservation.
Is he correct? I don’t know, but he is the kind of person you should listen to, not because you agree with him but because you don’t. This would get you to the core of the debate rather than running away from it.
As I said above, if you refuse to listen to those who argue against your opinion, you will never learn anything. The essence of scientific training is to look for contradictions to your own beliefs. If you refuse to look for contradictions to your beliefs, you will not discover your errors and not learn the truth. That is the lesson of Aristotle and those who followed him to develop the scientific method.
I bring you the truth. Go elsewhere to find your fiction.
