Los Angeles Marches in the Second Global March Against Chemtrails & Geoengineering

by Sharon Schloss Saturday, Jan. 25, 2014 at 9:15 PM

Los Angeles participated in the Global March Against Chemtrails & Geoengineering today in Santa Monica. There were 50-70 activists involved, including members of Los Angeles Skywatch. The public was very receptive and inquisitive.

Concerned Los Angeles residents met at the Santa Monica Pier today for the second Global March Against Chemtrails and Geoengineering. The group, which included members of the local activist group Los Angeles Skywatch, convened at the cannon overlooking the Pacific Ocean under a sky peppered with aerosol clouds and a variety of chemtrail markings. There were around 50-70 people in attendance, an increase from the first global march in August. The march was peaceful and well organized, and although there was one agitator present to try and bring the activists down, he was outnumbered and could not offer an adequate reason for his opposition to this environmental cause.

The march lasted for about two hours, slowly making its way through the Third Street Promenade, which was an excellent venue in which to bring this issue to light. Santa Monica is a health and environmentally conscious city and the march happened to coincide with the Santa Monica Farmers Market, where consumers vote against agribusiness with their purchase of local and organic produce. The marchers handed out flyers and literature from Geoengineeringwatch.org and Los Angeles Skywatch to a receptive public. Many of the shoppers, who had been aware of the spraying for some time, were looking for answers and information. Last month this issue was brought into the mainstream by Stephen Colbert in his brutally comedic interview with David Keith, one of the world’s best known geoengineering scientists. It is becoming increasingly difficult to hide the reason behind the spraying, and people are even starting to notice the difference between natural and aerosol clouds.

For many years people have noticed persistent contrails coming from jets and lingering in the sky for hours. Science’s reasoning for what we are seeing is that these are simply contrails, or condensation trails of jet exhaust. The problem with this explanation, leading to what the mainstream media has termed as the “chemtrail conspiracy theory,” is that it does not agree with the actual science of flight and weather. Contrails are very short, last only a few plane lengths behind the aircraft, and only occur at altitudes above 30,000 feet. They are composed of ice crystals that dissipate quickly behind the plane. Chemical trails can happen at much lower altitudes, and now with the Plane Finder App for smart phones, many lay people have been documenting persistent trails at lower altitudes.

Another failure of mainstream science in regard to quelling the public’s concerns about chemtrails is that they cannot adequately explain why water condensation is lingering for so many hours and spreading out across the sky. Almost daily, throughout North America, Europe, Australia, and many other parts of the world, airplanes fly back and forth creating grids in the sky that within hours create hazy whiteout conditions. We are also seeing many artificial clouds which are easily recognized by features such as a cotton-candy appearance, fine linear ripples caused by HAARP’s radio frequencies, and streaky rainbow colors like one would see in oil spilled on dark pavement. These events are simply reported as cirrus clouds and rainbows, both of which were extremely uncommon in Los Angeles until the past couple of years. It seems odd to the growing number of people noticing this that there are some days where the planes do not leave any persistent trails and others where the sky gets completely obliterated by them, even though there are planes flying every day. Also strange and completely ignored by weather reporters on mainstream news is why it has been cloudy so much of the time in Los Angeles recently, yet we are experiencing a drought. The public is now demanding an answer.

In Los Angeles, we are accustomed to clear blue skies for most of the year with cumulus clouds and rain in the winter and early spring. For the past year, almost every day has been cloudy or partly cloudy, no matter what time of year, and there has been almost no rain in the winter and spring. The chemtrails and aerosol clouds are composed of aluminum, barium, and strontium, and, as documented by the Carnicom Institute, biological agents. Rain tests in California over the past year have revealed increasing levels of these three heavy metals which far exceed what is considered normal and healthy by the EPA. There has been a dramatic increase in aluminum related illnesses in the past decade since this heavy spraying began, including autism, Alzheimer’s disease, and asthma. Los Angeles residents who have never had issues with allergies are now reporting sore throats and congestion, as well as headaches and lethargy. These problems seem to coincide with the amount of aerosols in the air.

Another important reason that people are now taking to the street and marching in protest of the chemtrail spraying is that it is ultimately a weather modification program which is wreaking havoc on people’s lives. California is in an unprecedented drought while the central and eastern parts of the U.S. are being slammed with devastating storms. We are in the driest year since they began recording rainfall levels in 1894, which is causing events like the Glendora wildfire last week, while the east is being crippled by extreme snow storms. Simply attributing this to “climate change” does not address the reasons for the climate change. Climate change is an effect, not a cause. Geoengineering is altering weather patterns and exacerbating global warming by creating a blanket of aerosol clouds that hold in heat at night. The spraying is also destroying the ozone layer. Now that people are wising up to the crime in the sky, scientists like David Keith are proposing geoengineering as a cure for global warming, which it most certainly is not. In fact, it will only make this problem worse without addressing the need to reduce CO2 emissions.

Since new evidence is coming out linking Monsanto to the geoengineering program, there is even more reason for public outrage. The biotech giant has been throwing its weight around for years, suing independent farmers for patent infringement when their fields become contaminated with GMO cross-pollination, spending millions of dollars trying to stop the labeling of foods containing GMOs, and now even trying to force their unhealthy foods upon underdeveloped nations in Africa under the guise of philanthropy. Monsanto means to control the world’s food supply. They have patented aluminum resistant, drought resistant genetically modified seeds in the face of the chemtrail spraying, which is causing crop loss for organic farmers, as seen in the documentary film, “Why in the World Are They Spraying?” It is no coincidence that they have this patent. By creating conditions in which plants cannot survive, they can further their agenda to monopolize the agriculture business by offering the only seeds that can live with this abiotic stress.

This march along with the global marches against Monsanto in 2013 will hopefully increase awareness about how our natural world is being taken away from us, all for a corporate monopoly. It seems absurd that anyone would want to patent and own nature itself, and it seems crazy that anyone would do so much harm to people and the environment. But history shows that these types of abuses happen time and time again, the difference now is that there is more science and technology involved. It is still the same story of the many being abused and controlled by the few, and marches like the Global March Against Chemtrails & Geoengineering show that if we unite against the corporate food and weather monopoly, we can prevail and take back our air, food, and water.
