man made pollution

What if Trees Could Talk (#prompt)

If trees could converse
They’d talk about their worth
Explaining their forestry collusion
To control man made air pollution
They’d speak of being earth’s lungs
And the joys of morning chorus sung

But trees already do preamble
Just in a language that’s chemical
Signalling via the periodic table
As much as they’re physically able
Indicating we need to change our ways
The extend our planets limited days

But if trees really could ever like us talk
They would just simply stand there and baulk
Then shout in a language loud and clear
A message we might finally hear
The trees would rage at the human race
For making their earth a basket case

6 Tiny Satellites That Are Changing How We See Earth

HARP: Hyper-Angular Rainbow Polarimeter

What’s better than taking a picture of a cloud to figure out its size and shape? Taking a bunch of pictures all around it. That way you get a three-dimensional view without having to worry about missing something. The HARP CubeSat is going to do just that: make observations of cloud droplets and tiny airborne particles like soot and dust with a modified camera lens from multiple angles. This will give us a full rendering of what’s going on inside the clouds, specifically, how those airborne particles act as “seeds” for water vapor to condense on and form cloud droplets. Since so many of those particles are in the air as a result of man-made pollution, we want to understand how they may be affecting clouds, weather and climate.

RAVAN: Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes

Anyone who’s worn a black shirt on a summer day knows how much sunlight and heat it absorbs. The RAVAN 3-unit CubeSat, however, carries “blacker than black” technology – carbon nanotubes set up like a bundle of drinking straws that suck up nearly all the sunlight and energy that reach them to the point that your black shirt seems merely dark grey in comparison. Flying in low Earth orbit, RAVAN’s super sensitive instrument will detect tiny changes in the amount of sunlight and energy passing into and out of the top of the atmosphere. The amount of energy passing through the top of the atmosphere is where the net accounting of Earth’s energy budget happens – one of the major measurements we need in order to understand the effects of greenhouse gases on global warming and climate change. 

MiRaTA: Microwave Radiometer Technology Acceleration

That long skinny piece coming out of the bottom right side under the solar panel? That’s a measuring tape. It’s doubling as a communications antenna on the MiRaTA CubeSat that will be a mini-weather station in space. This 3-unit, shoe box-sized satellite is testing out new, miniaturized technology to measure temperature, water vapor, and cloud ice in the atmosphere. They’ll be tracking major storms, including hurricanes, as well as everyday weather. If this test flight is successful, the new, smaller technology will likely be incorporated into major – large – weather satellite missions in the future that are part of our national infrastructure.


The aptly named IceCube will measure – you guessed it – ice in our atmosphere. Unlike the droplets that make up rain, ice is one of the harder things to measure from space. IceCube is a 3-unit CubeSat about the size of a loaf of bread outfitted with a new high-frequency microwave radiometer, an instrument that measures naturally occurring radiation emitted by stuff in the atmosphere – cloud droplets, rain, and the ice particles at the tops of clouds. This will be the first space test of the new microwave radiometer that has to balance its tiny size and low power with being sensitive enough to detect cloud ice. 

CYGNSS: Cyclone, Global Navigation Satellite System

What do GPS signals do when they’re not talking to your phone? A lot of them are just bouncing harmlessly off the planet’s surface – a fact that the CYGNSS mission is taking advantage of to measure wind speed over the ocean. Eight identical small satellites, each about the size of a microwave oven, flying in formation carry custom modified GPS receivers pointed at the oceans. When the water is smooth – not windy – the GPS signals reflect back uniformly, like the moon on a pond reflected as if in a mirror. When the water is choppy – windy – the signals reflect back in in the same direction but distorted, like the moon reflection on a choppy pond being distorted by ripples. Flying eight satellites in formation means the CYGNSS mission can measure wind speed across more of the ocean at once, which will help with understanding tropical storms and hurricanes. 

TROPICS: Time-Resolved Observations of Precipitation structure and storm Intensity with a Constellation of Smallsats

An important way to improve forecasts of hurricane and tropical cyclone intensity is to see what’s going on inside and around them while they’re happening. That’s the goal of the TROPICS mission, 12 CubeSats that will fly in formation to track the temperature and humidity of storm environments. The TROPICS CubeSats will get very frequent measurements, similar to X-rays, that cut through the overall cloud-cover so we can see the storm’s underlying structure. The storm structures known as the eyewall – tall clouds, wind and rain around the eye – and rainbands – the rainy parts of the spiral arms – give us clues about whether a storm is primed to intensify into a category 4 or 5 storm, something everyone in their path needs to know.

Perfectly normal, nothing to see here.  After a full day of chemtrail spraying we have a chembow and some fine HAARP ripples.  Totally natural weather.  Go back to looking at your iPhone.


Weather War Update - This Afternoon’s Assault

We were hit hard by a heavy chemical attack today in LA.  This was looking like it would be comparable to last Saturday, July 19.  A huge amount of aerosol material was bombed in from the southwest and the chemclouds were very thick.  The chemtrail spraying was also relentless and some HAARP influence could be seen in the aerosols.  This wave, according to the schedule on Weather.con was meant to begin last night.  We have been able to postpone these attacks using orgonite, and this one didn’t reach us until about 1pm, more than 12 hours after it was supposed to.  Since this involved a seemingly endless supply of aerosols, it could not be destroyed completely, but we did put a good dent in it.

Row 1 shows the first toxins seeping into our sky in early afternoon.  Row 2 is a side by side of the worst of it and how it was thinned out a little as the afternoon wore on.  Row 3 is right above my workplace where by late afternoon, much of the pollution had been cleared by the orgonite.  I recharged the rooftop orgonite pieces today by washing them off and giving them my intention to have them clean the sky and save LA from sickness and California from drought and destruction.

But since there is no rest for the wicked, the remaining photos show the craziness that came with the next wave of geoengineering in the evening as the sun was setting.  To the west was a massive chembomb, and over my house was the brightest and most colorful chembow I’ve ever seen.  It was a real show stopper.  Wow, the geoengineers sure are psychopathic!  We’re currently covered in fake clouds tonight, not total chemcover, but a very ugly sky.
