Breathe deeply, Chattanoogans. The air is filled with clouds of aerosol geoengineering dust speckles as part of the U.S. weather modification program. Sky striping has intensified in the past 2 weeks to a level 300 percent greater than that seen for several months.

The program involves the injection of coal fly ash into the middle and upper atmosphere. Coal fly ash is a utility waste that is given many uses in American products, from concrete, particle board to additives in road paving. Coal fly ash is poisonous and toxic, as evidenced in the court case involving coal fly ash cleanup crews in Kingston, Tenn., working on a TVA disaster site from a coal fly ash slurry spill in December 2008.
But the material is used because it is cheap and stays aloft and affects the reflectivity of the earth’s surface and is connected with weather modification programs of long standing.
The content of the deposits over Chattanooga was revealed in 2015 by the work of a nuclear geophysicist, J. Marvin Herndon of San Diego. He determined that material deposited is a breezy long-floating talcum powder product that serves the purpose of weather modification very well.
Hamilton County has been bombarded 10 days in October. The dates are Oct. 2, 12, 13, 17, 18, 19, 22, 23, 24 and 30. And maybe one more day in which I am conscious of not having marked my record.
Major dust injection smashes lull
Delivery days this month are three times greater than in previous months which have averaged about three or four sky stripe days every 30 days.
September had four days — Sept. 6, 14, 23 and 29.
August had three days, Aug. 9, 23, 24.
July had three days — July 5, 23, 29.
June had three days — 7, 11 and 14.
May had three days, also: May 15, 23, 24.
April had six days, 1, 2, 5, 10, 11, 13.
In March — four days, March 1, 9, 18 and 31.
It was also six days in Feb. 2, 3, 5, 9, 18 and 22.
In January, jets deposited cloud material eight days. They were Jan. 1, 2, 3, 7, 23, 26, 30, 31.
