Tuesday nights at my house is Trail Life USA, a new and morally honest alternative to the Boy Scouts. We have dinner early, and head off to Clear Creek Church of Christ for the meeting. The host assembles in a conference room next to the gym for announcements, prayer, a brief devotional led by Ben Fisher, an homeschooling engineer. The requisite honorifics are put forth, with a federal government flag presented; all but one of us recite a pledge of allegiance to that flag “and to the republic, for which it stands.”
The Tulis boy, a member of Trial Life, is 11. He tugs at me to leave just as a kickball game gets under way in the ballfield behind the church. “Dad, let’s go. I don’t know anything about kickball or baseball,” he pleads. “Your team is out in the field, now,” I say. But he hangs back. He doesn’t want to learn himself anything about these, either. “Dad, you know I don’t care about sports. They are a waste of time.” I hold out as he trudges off toward the car, trying to draw me away from a conversation with another boy’s grandfather. He comes back, finally, defeated, and waits on the side.
We leave as the game continues as the sun sets, the sky striped with jet billows. The air smells fresh with a hint of honeysuckle, and the men are friendly enough. One of the dads pulls me aside and asks me a survey question from his Sunday school class to this effect: “What in your life as a Christian are evidences of your transformation in Christ or occasions of it?” My answer: A care for the law of God, a rising care for other people (other-centric orientation) and marriage, which changes a man’s perspective and gives him opportunity to live out Christ’s obedient life in an intimate setting, until death. Since he is making notes, I keep the answers succinct.
The boy, eager to escape, endures two brief conversations I enjoy with men before we depart — dad’s elevator pitches for a business project. On the way home, we are waylayed by the need to shop for a birthday card and treats for brother who graduated with the homeschool class of 2014 Saturday and is turning 18.
Earlier in the day I’d interviewed a scientist in Dalton, Ga. Walter H. Carter is an environmental investigator, consultant and building scientist with EAQP Inc. I ask about how he would test for high levels of aluminum, barium and strontium in the air over Chattanooga. After hearing my interest in geoengineering, he explains how he would first obtain public records of these pollutants, then design a series of air tests that might reveal the breathable offal sprayed into the sky over the city by scores of jets.
Tuesday is the second day in a row of heavy aircraft flyover and a laying down by engines or nozzles the persistent, muddy mist that now characterizes the horizon over my hometown. None of the men and boys tossing about on the soft grass pay the slightest mind to the bizarre trailwork in the skies overhead.
Mr. Carter says such a test would cost between F$10,000 and F$20,000 and may not provide anything conclusive.
What do you think about what your eyes see? Trace the course of the day as I, with a tiny Canon Powershot camera record the phenomenon of sky striping — geoengineering, it’s called. The program is intended to change the atmosphere, to inject a layer of metallic skin into the upper atmosphere to reduce direct sunlight. Industry and other programs have reduced by 22 percent already the sunlight reaching the earth’s surface.
Environmentalists and researchers such as Dane Wigington propose that the increase in the planet’s temperature is caused by this decades-old program of chemtrailing, and the attendant violence in weather, from storms to drought to floods — hapless byproducts of a know-no-limits pride among scientists, climate control companies, government and a financial industry that has grown up around futures markets dependent on weather.
Why the photographic record?
The photos below should disabuse you of one notion: That persistent jet exhaust trails are mere contrails caused by cold, moist air being sucked through hot jet engines and forming condensate. Below you will see sky stripes start and stop. These stripes are not innocent and harmless happenstance results of regular jet traffic.
Tuesday’s — and today’s — air traffic has a high goal. Geoengineering is a federal climate control program to save planet earth from the results of industrial and Western civilizational pollution. It is, hence, a form of sanctioned and official pollution, whose effect on human health is not a matter of concern to the quiet operators of sky stripers, operating under military supervision.
What do you suppose are the implications of these program on local economy?
