This is Alaska’s big season: millions of salmon and tourists with millions of dollars headed north. Alaska draws people who pay attention and, like salmon, many return again for more.
As an Alaskan who has shuttled greenhorns between Denali and the North Slope, their sharp-eyed questions help me better understand the place I call home. Fresh eyes inform habitual ways of seeing.
More people are asking about the white lines in the sky. Perhaps they assumed that Alaska was exempt from Project Cloverleaf, the semi-secret aerosol spray program.
Since the early 1990s, if not earlier, fleets of Boeing tankers fly patterns that are easy to see from the ground on clear days. Aerosol emissions, some cross-hatched grids, some wild gyres and curlicues, are obviously coming from the planes. With few exceptions, the media has ignored the activity.
With the leisure of several hours for observation, spray lines evolve and spread out. Rather than disappearing, they unroll in gauzy layers. Before long, the initial emissions span the sky. During summer’s ‘white nights’, aerosols released at 4pm are often seen at 11pm blocking the sunset on the northwest horizon.
Under these conditions, daytime temperature drops, as does photosynthesis while mold and other pathogens increase. Solar panels show a decrease in output of up to 35 percent.
While intended to remain aloft for hours, the aerosol particles eventually reach the surface. Technical analysis has been performed by Carnicom Institute, a Monticello, UT lab. The major components are aluminum, barium and strontium. Another researcher, Dane Wigington, in Shasta, California, confirms the chemical profiles by soil and stream tests.
The nano-sized particles are lightweight, reflective, and inexpensive. They fulfill the ingredients of Edward Teller’s recipe for blanketing the globe by spraying artificial clouds into the lower troposphere.
Dr. Teller, the father of the hydrogen bomb, and others, sold the scheme to the Pentagon where it was re-purposed as a weather weapon. The DOD publication “Owning The Weather in 2025” is a primer for those who wish to know what they are breathing.
After Alaska’s visitors get an earful, most lose some of their innocence about the place. Such folks usually explore the topic independently while becoming sky-watchers in their home regions. With more questions than answers, everyone has an obligation to investigate the phenomenon.
