Between 1979 and 2004, cases of heart failure tripled.

The number of hospitalizations with any mention of heart failure tripled from 1,274,000 in 1979 to 3,860,000 in 2004; 65% to 70% of admissions were patients with additional diagnoses of heart failure.

We have all heard how silver iodide is extensively used for cloud seeding.

Studies have proven long term breathing of silver causes anemia, and heart enlargement

Long-term industrial or medical exposure to silver
and its compounds may increase blood concentrations
of silver to levels which can have toxic effects,
such as induction of sarcomas, anemia, and
enlargement of the heart

The recent rash of deaths from perfectly healthy runners suggests that the increased breathing of the atmosphere filled with silver salts may be a cause of their enlarged heart induced deaths.

nlarged heart (cardiomegaly) is not a disease but a sign of an underlying problem. It can have many causes, including:

* High blood pressure
* Heart valve disorders
* Weakness of the heart muscle (cardiomyopathy)
* Severe anemia
* Thyroid disorders
* Excessive iron in the body (hemochromatosis)
* Abnormal protein buildup in an organ (amyloidosis)

In some people, an enlarged heart causes no signs or symptoms. Others may experience:

* Breathing difficulties
* Shortness of breath
* Dizziness
* Abnormal heart rhythm (arrhythmia)
* Swelling (edema)

Recent increased lung and respiratory issues raise serious concerns as to how much silver is being introduced into our atmosphere.

Exposure to dust containing relatively high levels of silver compounds such as silver nitrate or silver oxide may cause breathing problems, lung and throat irritation and stomach pain.

Metal poisoning is also a factor in alzheimers, cancer, and a multitude of other health issues that doctors continue to invent new disease names to prescribe snake oils to "cure" your illness that is caused by the introduction of silver salts into our atmosphere, water, foods, etc.

Many people have become aware of the mercury toxicity problem. But it would be a mistake to think that metal poisoning is unique to this particular toxin. Consider: silver colloid is an antiseptic and has been used since ancient times to inhibit bacteria in drinking water.
Metals can directly and indirectly damage DNA and that means an increased risk of cancer (we call this genotoxicity). There are also possibly non-genotoxic pathways, due to irritation or immuno-toxicity. Sure enough, a number of metals are known to be carcinogenic.
Generally speaking, heavy metals disrupt metabolic function in two basic ways:

First, they accumulate and thereby disrupt function in vital organs and glands such as the heart, brain, kidneys, bone, liver, etc.
Second, they displace vital nutritional minerals from where they should be in the body to provide biological function. For example, enzymes are catalysts for virtually every biochemical reaction in all life-sustaining processes of metabolism. But instead of calcium being present in an enzyme reaction, lead or cadmium may be there in its place. Toxic metals can't fulfill the same role as the nutritional minerals, thus their presence becomes critically disruptive to enzyme activity.

The increase strange bird activities such a mass death and bizarre behaviour also suggest heavy metal poisoning.

There has been a considerable amount of discussion regarding African Greys falling from their perches.
Heavy metal poisoning should be considered as a reason for unexplained falls from the perch

The increased loss of aquatic life can also be explained by heavy metal poisoning, specifically silver iodide being introduced into our atmosphere

Elevated silver concentrations in biota occur in
the vicinities of sewage outfalls, electroplating
plants, mine wastes, and silver-iodide seeded
Silver, as
ionic Ag+, is one of the most toxic metals known to
aquatic organisms in laboratory testing

Cloud seeding has grown to be a massive business, because water is a commodity that is traded on the stock market.

Weather modification, or cloud seeding, has long been recognized as a means to enhance existing water supplies. Cloud seeding assists nature in the formation of precipitation, by providing droplet-forming nuclei at the proper times and places.
Typically, silver iodide is released into the air from strategically placed ground generators to produce artificial ice nuclei. Aircraft seeding is also used, but is much more expensive

A mixture of seeding, pollutant inhibiting, and co-alescing chemicals are vaporized and dispersed in a jetting action into the atmosphere to provide an aggregate of nuclei on the order of subcolloidal approximately submicromolecular sizes upon which nucleations of water vapor in the atmosphere take place free from adjacent nucleations to form water droplets and ice crystals with accompanying releases of latent heat, the water droplets, ice crystals further serving as nuclei in a breeding action for a chain reaction of latent heat releases with the vaporized coalescing chemicals aiding in the coalescence of water droplets and the released latent heat diffuses upwardly in an outward expansion to produce an updraft whereby to puncture atmospheric inversions and inhibit the formation of secondary pollutants.

The greed of water boards has allowed cloud seeding to become a common practice.

A number of commercial companies, such as Aero Systems Incorporated [9], Atmospherics Incorporated [10], North American Weather Consultants [11], Weather Modification Incorporated [12], Weather Enhancement Technologies International [13], Seeding Operations and Atmospheric Research (SOAR) [14], offer weather modification services centered on cloud seeding. The USAF proposed its use on the battlefield in 1996, although the U.S. signed an international treaty in 1978 banning the use of weather modification for hostile purposes.

And no matter what they tell you, cloud seeding is happening on a massive, global scale

Los Angeles has a new idea for how to combat drought: cloud-seeding. The county plans to spend $800,000 on a plan to increase rainfall in the San Gabriel Mountains by shooting a whole bunch of silver iodide into the air.

Now thats something I wasn't aware of.
Cloud seeding, yes.. the actual toxicity of the metals used, no.

Flag and star for bringing this to light!
And welcome to ATS by the way!

JEDDAH, 3 June 2008 — The Kingdom will soon carry out its fifth experiment of the cloud physics project that aims at generating artificial rain.
Chemicals used in the cloud seeding process include calcium chloride and silver iodide. The process involves airplanes dropping the chemicals in the clouds in order to induce rain.
The American Weather Modification Inc., the company carrying out the program, has conducted the experiment in 11 US states without any complications or environmental damage because of the chemicals used, Al-Qahtani said.

The weather modification program has become so big, a bill was introduced to allow this illegal activity

S 517 IS


1st Session

S. 517

To establish the Weather Modification Operations and Research Board, and for other purposes.


March 3, 2005

Mrs. HUTCHISON introduced the following bill; which was read twice and referred to the Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation

Weather Mitigation Research and Development Policy Authorization Act of 2007 - Establishes in the National Science Foundation (NSF) the Weather Mitigation Advisory and Research Board to establish and coordinate the national research and development program on weather mitigation described in this Act. Requires the Executive Director of the Board to submit a plan for the establishment and coordination of the Program.
Requires the Board to promote and fund research and development (R&D), studies, and investigations with respect to: (1) improved forecast and decisionmaking technologies for weather mitigation operations, including tailored computer workstations and software and new observation systems with remote sensors; and (2) assessments and evaluations of the efficacy of weather mitigation.
Authorizes the Board to establish a grant program for the awarding of grants to eligible entities (state agencies, institutions of higher education, and nonprofits that have expertise in the field of weather mitigation and experience working with state agencies) for R&D projects that pertain to weather mitigation. Permits a grant recipient to only use the grant for a R&D project that: (1) pertains to weather mitigation; and (2) was in operation on the day before the grant was awarded.
Requires the submission of annual reports to the President and Congress on the activities conducted pursuant to this Act.

It's no accident that the Texas senator KB Hutchinson is highly involved in this area, because Texas has been one of the leading water boards encouraging weather modification since the 60's

And it's no coincedance that the 23 member Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation including their subcommittees
on * Subcommittee on Aviation Operations, Safety, and Security
* Subcommittee on Consumer Affairs, Insurance, and Automotive Safety
* Subcommittee on Interstate Commerce, Trade, and Tourism
* Subcommittee on Oceans, Atmosphere, Fisheries, and Coast Guard
* Subcommittee on Science, Technology, and Innovation
* Subcommittee on Space, Aeronautics, and Related Agencies
* Subcommittee on Surface Transportation and Merchant Marine Infrastructure, Safety and Security

are all high level coordinators of FAA, aviation fuel supply and connected areas concerning the United States aviation because this silver iodide cloud seeding program is being done on a massive scale throughout the entire United States.

Thank you.

What is more concerning, is that those involved in the horrendous destruction of our air, are all to well knowing the conditions they are creating.

However, since they are highly invested in water, and health care, it's to their benefit.

Is it any wonder why Dubai has become such a future haven for the elitists.

When the water is too polluted to drink, and the atmosphere is to polluted to breath, they can all go to Dubai (so they think) until things clear up.

What they don't know, is the the jet stream that they are spraying this poison into, is a global phenomenon, and is what is causing the global warming effect due to the reflective properties of silver dust in our atmosphere.

I was thinking of starting a thread on the issues of cloud seeding - starred and flagged for beating me to it and presenting some collaborative evidence for discussion

However, to show a direct causal link between cloud seeding and health we need to look at the areas where cloud seeding occurs against those where (so far as we know) it does not.

The other issue for discussion is whether cloud seeding - to induce rainfall in a drought stricken region - results in reduced rainfall elsewhere. Effectively just shifting the problem.

I'll try and find some data over the next couple of days to bring to the discussion

Thank you Essan.

Look forward to your findings in this area. Maybe high level
particulate samples could shed some light.

Adverse health effects have been associated with the inhalation of a variety of atmospheric particles. The potential toxicity of a recently collected urban air particulate sample (EHC-93, mean diameter < 1 μm) was assessed after instilling 1 mg to mouse lung. _userid=10&md5=c42bff1e93eb8aa71879b8ffc40cf338

Important sources of atmospheric
silver from human activities include the processing of ores, steel refining,
cement manufacture, fossil fuel combustion, municipal waste incineration, and
cloud seeding. The total U.S. annual release of silver to
the environment as a result of human activities in 1978 was estimated to be
approximately 2 million kg. ,Of this amount, 77% was from,land disposal of
solid waste, 17% was discharged to surface waters, and 6% emitted to the
Urban refuse was the source of an additional 10,000 kg.
Smith and Carson (1977) estimated that cloud seeding with silver iodide
contributed 3,100 kg annually (based on data from the early 1970s).

CLOUD SEEDING PROJECTS OVER TEXAS, OKLAHOMA, COLORADO, KANSAS - April 1999 seeding's in Texas connected to May 1999, Oklahoma F-5 Tornado- 2003 cloud seeding, Greensburg, KS, WIPED OFF MAP.
CHINA'S 2007-2008 Seeding, Cyclone in Myranmar/burma, increase in cases of Asthma, and other serious internal dieases's in seeded states rural groundwater contamination, loss of honey bee's, crop destruction. Huge Tornado May 21, 2008 north of Colorado?

What I don't understand is the lack of concern by those who study the movement of weather.

They could tell you how if the Rocky Mountain area is seeded, and then it falls downrange, say Kansas, the silver stays in the dirt, until it is picked up again by updrafts and redistributed down stream (jetstream) again, and so on and so on.

What's even more frustrating is the fact the "the powers that be" are using silver iodide to combat global warming, when it was the use of silver iodide in the first place that caused the whole phenomenon.

The notion of a technological fix for global warming isn't new. In the 1940s, Bernard Vonnegut—a well-respected meteorologist and Kurt Vonnegut's brother—discovered that silver iodide smoke could cause clouds to give up their rain.3 His discovery kick-started serious government efforts to manipulate the environment. Until then, cloud-seeding had been the preserve of crackpots and con artists. By 1951, however, 10% of the United States was under clouds that had been commercially seeded.4

Governments and industry have a sometimes-ignoble history tampering with the weather. The CIA's top-secret "Project Popeye" rainmaking campaign, which began in 1966, ran for seven years and conducted 2,300 cloud seeding missions over the Ho Chi Minh Trail during the Vietnam War.5 The goal was to make the trail impassible and, as a bonus, to drown out North Vietnam's rice crop. While rains did increase, the Air Force couldn't establish a clear link to its covert campaign.

Recently, more convincing experiments have focused on " hygroscopic cloud seeding "—that is, warm-cloud seeding, as opposed to cold-cloud seeding (glaciogenic). Results from experiments at the South African National Precipitation and Rainfall Enhancement Programme earned researchers there the United Arab Emirates' 2005 Prize for Excellence in Advancing the Science and Practice of Weather Modification. Other warm-cloud seeding projects have taken place in the United States, Thailand, China, India, Australia, Israel, South Africa, Russia, United Arab Emirates, and Mexico.6 According to the UN World Meteorological Organization (WMO), at least 26 governments were routinely conducting weather-altering experiments in 2000.7 By 2003-2004, only 16 WMO member countries reported weather modification activities, although weather modification activities are known to have taken place in several other countries.
