Yet another compilation of compelling/useful info for you
Earth Rainbow Network Coordinator
P.S. I sent another Media Compilation last week with this introductory comment:
"Here is for you another compilation of seldom-heard perspectives and information on topics of relevance to most people. Hoping you'll care to report on the following issues, especially the one about the 3-year-old secret military operation spreading millions of tons of heat-reflective aluminum "chemtrails" in the skies of 14 countries in an attempt to allegedly counter run-away global warming, and the mounting global protests against this highly polluting global experiment making millions of people sick."

Chem-trails confirmed by Traffic Control Manager on Art Bell (4-4-2001)
Summary: "Deep Sky", Traffic Control Manager for Northeast Airport Confirmed on Art Bell Radio show 4-4-2001 Military behind "Chem-trails" applying "Atmospheric Bandaid" - 10 million tons of aluminum to reflect 1% of sunlight to coverup massive run away Global Warming. Clinton & George Bush's No longer Secret Solution to Global Warming. Protest immediately & Everywhere!
Military Conducting Massive Weather Modification in Secret
April 5, 2001
"Deep Sky", an air Traffic Control Manager, at a major Northeast Airport interview by a reported from New Hampshire & broadcast on the Art Bell Radio Show broadcast to five hundred affiliates & around the world on the internet confirmed tonight that a massive ìWeather Modification Programî is being carried out in secret by our military. A program apparently to spread 10 million tons of aluminum in order to reflect one percent of sunlight & cover-up run away global warming amounts to "Crimes Against Humanity". Class action suits are gathering steam as you read this as so many have been sickened. There are implications of this massive pollution I don't even want to contemplate
The skies of the United States along with fourteen NATO countries have & are experiencing chemical spraying from high altitude, now confirmed, to modify the weather. Creating "Atmospheric Band-Aids" in secrecy (but not out of sight) for the past three years. This Violates several aspects of several laws & treaties. Spraying huge Xs of "chem-trails" laced with aluminum & possibly other metals across the sky until a cloud cover forms and the weather changes must be illegal & is criminal as thousands have gotten sick. Hundreds of thousands many never recover as aluminum at the size cited in the Hughes patent is thought to coat neurotransmitters & maybe a primary co-factor in the epidemic of short term memory loss & early onset Alzheimers among other things.
Major Ed Dames, an ex-government employed remote viewer, on Art Bell, said he could not say as a remote viewer what the chem-trails were as he could go to jail for breaking his secrecy agreement on that topic. William Thomas has investigated, researched & written a book & produced a documentary on chem-trails that are being witnessed in fourteen countries. www.3.bc.sympatico.ca/willthomas please check this out & e-mail email@example.com to confirm.
Please check this out as the Air Force did when questioned by multiple individuals, myself included, spending ten plus hours looking at www.carnicom.com/contrails.htm last week. Please read the current issue of Time magazine & then give this issue immediate attention. Note that the editors of Time magazine covered up the word time with a frying pan - a message I took to mean there is no more time. The challenges of Global Warming are complicated, will take time to explore & every day that we go forward on this path the worse it will get.
For the military to do this in secret puts the world's best minds out of solving a problem that is obviously out of control & threatens the very existence of humanity. What or why this is happening has more questions unanswered than answered. Who specifically has the oversight on technology that could be a catalyst for a mass extinction event? How is HAARP, pumping a billion megawatts into the earth's sky adding to the severity of weather and the problem?
The chemically sensitive on Whidbey Island, Washington were suddenly sickened last month, the hospital filled with non-flu sickness emergencies & I witnessed multiple Xs in the sky. Also over Eugene & Wyoming I looked through Polaroid sunglasses to see oil slick rainbowed colored looking multiple Xs crossing the sky. Friends of mine are sick from chem-trails that have been laid across the skies of Arizona for weeks at a time. Hundreds of thousands have witnessed these chem as opposed to con-trails, myself included, & been sickened immediately along with the majority of the neighborhood & animals.
Who is responsible for attempting to put a huge Atmospheric Band-Aid to apparently cover-up the truth about Global Warming? If this is not what hundreds of thousands in fourteen countries have witnessed then what is it & what specifically can we do about it?

Subject: Re: X-Files #3: 1. More on the underground tunnels
The SIRA radar underground tunnels satellite photos I was refering to are said to be of the Giza Plateau, Guatemala, and other places...
These are the ones I have been trying to get the reference to for the original photos which are said to be publicly available... Does anyone know where they can be found?

What will our children inherit?
By Liz Elliott
For most tribal and village people, for most of human history, the cosmos felt to be a place of belonging and security, with significant connections to nature and community . Land was communally owned and cared for. In modern suburban, mobile culture we become cut off from the land and our neighbours, and thus suffer anxiety. To sedate this emptiness, the richest 20% of humans consume 80% of the world's resources, vast amounts of stuff, polluting air and water and destroying soil fertility. Consumerism and the religion of economic growth distract us from the purpose of human life; softening the underlying transfer of interest/debt money, power and resources to the top 1%, blinding us to the great impoverishment of environment, community and Third World enslavement. "Consume more!" urge the corporations, which spend more on advertising than the world spends on education.
However it cannot go on. If we all lived like Americans we would need three planets. And we are heading for 11 billion population in 100 years The maths of environmental destruction to pay debt shows this excessive consumption cannot go on; it is a compounding interest situation where 3% growth a year means 7 times the production in 60 years. The CSIRO estimates we Australians must decrease their resource use by 90% in 100 years! . How will we do this? Since 50% plus of prices=effort=environmental use are to pay interest, i.e. make the richest 5% richer, much resource use could be reduced by bank restructuring. Taxes and waste could be markedly reduced. Economic growth must be reduced by 2% a year, particularly with fossil fuel/greenhouse emissions, and replaced with growth in ecology, community, art/music, family, health and sprituality. Not necessarily a decline in true standard of living! In fact, a great opportunity!!
The current "Economic Growth in GDP" goal is based on false accounting (destroying our natural capital and calling this growth!), commercialising the huge unpaid love economy, on exporting our soil, water and work and beggaring-our-neighbours and on failing to pay the true cost of our consumption rampage. Our children will have to pay. And the cleanup will be much more expensive than the costs "saved" in the short run. We are wasting a precious opportunity to invest in sustainable technology, so that our children can live off the interest (for instance using petrol for solar cells manufacture). Actually, our true standard of living taking into account environmental loss, crime and others stresses, has been dropping since 1975.
The Free market/ economic irrationalist ideology is based on a perversion of Adams Smiths ideas; Smith never envisioned producers not paying their true costs of production, nor of capital being internationally hypermobile. Since profits in the unreal financial economy, derivatives, shares, merger driven profits etc have been 20% plus, investments in the real world of food, transport and housing must perform to the same unsustainable profit return if they are to attract scarce capital. Such high profits are only possible by not paying tax, stressing workers and gouging the Earth.
Elders everywhere tell the same story; their land does not look as lush or healthy as it used to. Gone are the great cod fisheries of eastern Atlantic, the Amazon goes in 25 years, and oil will start running out in 20 years. Humans already use 50% of world fresh water and arable soils. Minerals and petrol we extract will in future be from more marginal, harder to access sources. A quarter of a million acres of forest are lost a day. Trees are nature's water pumps, rain makers and nurseries. At the current rate of soil loss through desertification, salination and erosion, there will be no arable soils within 100 years. Agribusiness mines soils till they are just root holders to pour chemicals into. 12 kilos of soil are lost for every kilo of food produced. Globalized corporations scour the world for the cheapest raw materials, lowest environmental standards and worst working conditions for workers, small business and farmers.
The feedlot dairy industry is a classic agribusiness disaster, cruel to cows, polluting to rivers, wasteful! And capital intensive so farmers are progressively turned into bank serfs. In the US, chicken and hog farmers are dictated to every step by giant vertically integrated feed, fertilizer and storage companies like Cargill. Until there is a price squeeze or climate problem, when the farmers take the risk and their holdings are resumed by the banks, also owned by Cargill, ArcherDanielMidland and Aventis. Everywhere farmers' margins are reduced, whilst supermarkets and transport/fuel corporations make higher percentages. Chemical intensive/ petrol using farming and transporting sends farmers broke! International and continent wide transport of basics is unnecessary and polluting, yet supermarket style food chains are seen as cheaper. "Cheap" at the expense of farmers, environment and climate. Our climate is becoming more unstable due to Big Oil protecting its investment in anachronistic technology. Our seas and waterways are used as a toxic dump; 13 million tons of chemicals go into our environment every day. Chemicals are not recyclable, biomagnify and are totally unknown in their long term effect. 1000 new chemicals a year enter the US market, only 25 tested, never in the long term, on sensitive people or in combination.
Human physical health is threatened by agribusiness style farming; by these chemicals, genetic engineering and proliferation of new diseases. The shallow mineral and essential oil content of speed grown, longhauled supermarket supplied food system predispose to heart disease, cancer and depression, typical western diseases. These are exaggerated by worker stress and loneliness of the marginalized unemployed, old and young. Poorer nations' people suffer from simple infections and stress, due to spending more on debt repayments than Health, Education or Water.
In the Two Thirds World, efficient peasant farmers are threatened by monoculture farming for export. Small scale farms are much more efficient than industrialised farming in terms of energy in/energy out and total yield per acre. Small farmers are undermined by dumping of subsidised foods produced by unsustainable methods, and by excessive regulations favouring agribusiness, genetically engineered seed oligopolies and irrigation/big dams. Colonialism with greater environmental degradation! Once stable selfsufficient communities disintegrate. Rural to city migrations create sweatshops which undermine all workers' conditions and cause illegal emigration and wars. Water and resource disputes precede much "ethnic conflict"; GATS and other WTO treaties specify water as a tradeable commodity, with no local protectionism being possible. GATS calls the environment "a service", to be privately administered.
Unsustainable policies are promoted by Big Business. Big farms get most subsidies and infrastructure benefits. The major parties are bought out and offer no alternative to ecological collapse. Yet, in all this accelerating destruction there is hope!
50% of the world still lives in more traditional systems where democracy and sustainable agriculture are easily possible. With minimal investment in low interest banking, small tools and permaculture type training, many of these communities could be self sufficient again. If not propped up by First World aid, oppressive corrupt regimes could be toppled by third world people and much forest, water and mineral wealth be better managed. 10 million South Indian farmers have pledged to defend their land against genetic engineering. Huge demonstrations in Aisa, South America and India against corporate slave labour conditions rarely get press.
Slowly, our churches are beginning to oppose immoral IMF bank policies, and this last two years our intelligentsia are starting to debate the failure of 30 years of Washington nonsensus policies. Australian farmers are beginning to talk sustainability and group together to protect their local water basins. Many young people, as evidenced by S 11 and Seattle, have moved beyond "light green" awareness, saving forests and beaches, and are becoming "dark green"; looking at banking, money markets and trade policies that drive ecological gouging. The internet has spawned a huge educational counter to shallow commercial media and education. In Europe, the ATTAC group is spreading the word about green taxes; taxing resource use, not labour, and the Tobin tax and Flat tax.
The true nature of pharmaceutical=chemical=fertiizer=petroleum corporations is becoming obvious. Australians, long bought off by privatisation of their assets, ecological rape and third world slave labour cheapies, are waking up. The recent elections shows distrust of the neoliberals' spindoctors and centralized power brokers. The Green vote has not been analysed by the press because its implications are far more unsettling than Hanson's dress sense
Vegetarianism and antigenetic engineering activism is spreading across Europe. 20% yearly growth in organic farming and food demand in Europe is fanned by concerns about disease and chemical toxicity. European farmers are turning their farms and their bank balances around within 3-5 years of going organic!! Farmers' margins improve if less inputs and less transport are needed. Getting off the debt treadmill requires courage, but can be done in stages. BIOLOGICAL DIVERSITY in crops and complex permaculture style intercropping is strength in times of climate change and monoculture crop disease.
LOCALISATION; the restoring of local food supplies and small business is underway in many aware areas, restoring jobs, social connection, fresher, more nutritious foods and pride in ethical business. In particular, the longhauling of foods can be reduced, cutting down much pollution and Big Oil stranglehold on politics.
Opposition to the impending G.A.T.S. treaty, privatising all services, looks set to be the biggest struggle of the decade, albeit being introduced by stealth. Slowly, people are seeing that globalization is not inevitable, not sustainable and that big business must be regulated. The rats cannot continue to run the ship. Globalisation is opposed to nature, culture and our children's future.
Dr Liz Elliott, firstname.lastname@example.org
Talk given to the Inverell Forum, NSW, Australia, in March, 2001
"It is perfectly possible for a man to be out of prison, and yet not free - to be under no physical constraint and yet to be a psychological captive, compelled to think, feel and act as the representatives of the national state, or of some private interest within the nation, wants him to think, feel and act.
The nature of psychological compulsion is such that those who act under constraint remain under the impression that they are acting on their own initiative. The victim of mind-manipulation does not know that he is a victim. To him the walls of his prison are invisible, and he believes himself to be free. That he is not free is apparent only to other people. His servitude is strictly objective."
- Brave New World Revisited, Aldous Huxley, 1958
On August 3rd, 1977 the 95th U.S. Congress opened hearings into the reported abuses concerning the CIA's TOP SECRET mind control research program code named MK-Ultra. On February 8th, 1988, a top-level MK-Ultra victim, Cathy O'Brien, was covertly rescued from her mind control enslavement by Intelligence insider Mark Phillips. Their seven year pursuit of Justice was stopped FOR REASONS OF NATIONAL SECURITY. TRANCE Formation of America exposes the truth behind this covert government program and its ultimate goal: psychological control of a nation.
TRANCE Formation of America is the first documented autobiography of a victim of government mind control. Cathy O'Brien is the only vocal and recovered survivor of the Central Intelligence Agency's MK-Ultra Project Monarch operation. Tracing her path from child pornography and recruitment into the program to serving as a top-level intelligence agent and White House sex slave, TRANCE Formation of America is a definitive eye-witness account of government corruption that implicates some of the most prominent figures in U.S. politics.
TRANCE Formation of America was originally written, in graphic detail, for the U.S. House of Representatives Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Oversight in 1995, seven years after Mark Phillips rescued my daughter Kelly and I from our White House/Pentagon level MK-Ultra mind control victimization. We had previously been stopped from presenting our compiled eyewitness testimonies, supporting medical documents and hard evidence to all local, state, and federal legal bodies for so-called reasons of National Security. Once it became clear that we would not be able to address the Congressional Committee, TRANCE was released en masse in the form of a self-published book. It is now in its eighth printing, and is rapidly spanning the globe.
Mark and I began utilizing our First Amendment Rights by publicly whistle-blowing about mind control in 1991. In order to compile the evidence and begin a nation-wide mail-out of the information, we were reduced to living with Marks mother in a tiny two-bedroom house, able to eat only through food stamps and donations. After sending the information to every prominent politician and political organization in Washington and receiving only the form responses, we finally had a breakthrough in 1992. At that time, I was able to address the Tennessee State Legislature after Kelly had been denied her Constitutional and human rights when forced into Tennessee State custody. The judge presiding over her so-called legal case, Judge Andrew Shookhoff, said in open court laws do not apply in this case for reasons of National Security. This statement was the first stage of public validation from the bureaucratic and institutional realms. And it may have been the very act that saved our lives.
It is love for Kelly and determination to obtain classified technological rehabilitation for her and for the countless other victims worldwide who cannot think to speak for themselves, and love for humanity as a whole that motivates Mark and I to bring this reality to light. We are not alone in this effort, as there are individuals from global intelligence and governments who have been actively risking their jobs, retirement, and even lives to ensure that these facts reach people from all walks of society in order to make a necessary positive difference. Mind control is the most important issue facing humanity today as all other issues, causes, and choices are contingent upon free thought. We all formulate our thoughts, opinions, and actions based on what we know, and you Need-to-Know that your knowledge base is being deliberately altered through the suppression of pertinent information. Mind control is the missing piece of the puzzle that brings the global political picture into focus and explains so much of what we are seeing in society today. In a world where many people have fallen out of love with life, it is imperative to restore those human values we hold so dear NOW while we can still think to do so. Upon researching the detailed facts documented in TRANCE and responding to this no-longer-secret problem with action, we all stand to win the psychological war that has been waged on us by a very few. Kellys and my named abusers justify their application of mass mind control by invoking an entire spectrum of virtues, from that of population control to a means of achieving world peace. I know from experience that there is no peace in mind control, because without free thought there is no free will and without free will there is no soul expression. As a nation, our future is at stake. It is time to join the ever-increasing number of people worldwide who are raising public awareness by spreading the word on this 21st century technology for psychological control of our planet. Indeed, it is truth that makes u.s. free! Cathy OBrien From: http://www.guerrillanews.com/countdown/index.html Countdown - For those of you not interested in ringing in Dubya's ill-gotten presidency with the musical stylings of Ricky Martin and 98 Degrees, GNN offers an alternative: a Guerrilla News Video cut to "Countdown," Beastie Boy Ad Rock's remix of Green Party Presidential candidate Ralph Nader's blistering critique of the news media and the current state of American politics. The video features GNN's innovative video-scratching technique, cut with footage from the Battle of Seattle, nightly news broadcasts and Mr. Nader's addresses at the Green Party National Convention and the NAACP.
RALPH NADER - Presidential Candidate, Green Party 2000
"I hear you say often that you're not turned on to politics. Well let me bring to bear the lessons of history. If you're not turned on to politics, the lesson of history is that politics will turn on you. So, let's start the countdown.
Those who are excessively greedy and excessively powerful must give up their privileges, must give up some of their power. Big business has been colliding with American democracy. And American democracy is losing.
We can have a democratic society, or we can have a concentration of great wealth in the hands of the few. We cannot have both. Now imagine what can happen if political campaigns began paying attention to controlling what we own. We'd have our own radio stations, our own television stations, our own cable channels. It is time for a change. The system is not working.
Now look at your late evening news if you can bear it. Look at it. It's 30 minutes. 9 minutes of adds, 3 minutes of street crime right at the beginning, never corporate crime, very superficially covered. 1 minute of impromptu chit chat between the anchors. 4 minutes of weather, 4 minutes of sports. And that's what happened in your town tonight? And we own the public airwaves! It's a disgrace.
It's time to have our own TV stations, radio stations and cable channels. What we own, the public airwaves, has been surrendered to the most myopic and avaricious corporations. It is time for a change the system is not working.
This is a message of hope."

London: delivery of low emission buses
London, UK, March 30 -: London is to take delivery of three hydrogen fuel cell buses, Transport Minister Lord Whitty announced, and the government will contribute towards the cost of this project. The London trial will form part of a much wider project involving 27 fuel cell buses. The other eight EU cities are Reykjavik, Stockholm, Amsterdam, Luxembourg, Hamburg, Stuttgart, Barcelona and Porto. The London buses will be delivered in 2003 and will be operated with a dedicated hydrogen refuelling facility to be provided by BP. TfL (Transport for London), the executive body of the Greater London Authority, which runs London Buses, expects to use more fuel cell buses following the end of the trials in 2005. Adoption of the buses on a more extensive route network will depend on developing a wider hydrogen fuel infrastructure.
Poll on genetically engineered food
27 March - Three-fourths of Americans want to know if their food contains genetically engineered ingredients, according to a poll released yesterday by the Pew Initiative on Food and Biotechnology. Fifty-eight percent of the respondents did not want such ingredients in the food supply, period. However, when they were told that the ingredients were already in many food products on grocery store shelves, nearly half of the respondents said the products must therefore be safe. Despite pressure from environmental and consumer groups, the U.S. has said it won't require labeling of genetically engineered foods. Labeling is already required in Japan, South Korea, Australia, and most of Europe.

Subject: Venus Resurrects This Easter Sunday
Date: Fri, 06 Apr 2001
It is a rare event that won't happen for another 1500 years. John Pratt, a Ph.D. in astronomy and expert in ancient calendars says: "Have you noticed Venus, the Evening Star, currently blazing in the west after sunset? From Native American traditions we learn that in this phase it represents the Savior when he was at the heights of his ministry. In March it will plunge into darkness below the horizon even as the Savior conquered the forces of death in the underworld. Then, in an extremely rare event, Venus will resurrect precisely on Easter (April 15, 2001) as the Bright Morning Star. That rare coincidence, which won't happen again for 1500 years, can be witnessed around the world just before dawn on Easter Sunday wherever the eastern horizon is low and clear. This extraordinary sight was also witnessed on that Easter Sunday morning long ago when death was conquered by the Savior of all mankind.
