By Claire Edwards, 20 March 2021
Here is yet another message from Arthur Firstenberg, writing on behalf of the International Appeal to Stop 5G on Earth and in Space. As a co-author and former promoter of the Appeal, I am in the unenviable position of having a moral obligation to warn the public that they are being misled and misdirected. Our perilous circumstances compel me to do so.
As can be seen from the newsletter, Firstenberg is working closely with stop5ginternational, an organisation established by the very entity from which the current global putsch emanates, the depopulationist Club of Rome. It was initiated by a woman who worked directly for the Club of Budapest, subsidiary of the Club of Rome, and is led by a woman who is a self-confessed (claimed former) member of Extinction Rebellion, a Soros-funded organisation warmly endorsed by Club of Rome.
In December 2019, Firstenberg became an executive member of stop5ginternational, effectively merging the 5G Space Appeal with stop5ginternational, flagrantly ignoring my strong opposition to this as a co-creator of the Appeal, on the grounds that signatories did not sign the Appeal to pledge allegiance to an oligarch-inspired, depopulationist organization.
Firstenberg is therefore working hand in glove with people who are serving the interests of entities whose goals are depopulation and the theft of all the resources of our planet.
Firstenberg invites readers of his newsletter to write to environmental organisations, appealing to them to stop 5G. He is failing to acknowledge that “environmentalism” is itself a cover for eugenics. The Green New Deal is the financialisation of nature and all the major environmental organisations are fully behind it. Agenda 2030, pushed by these same environmental organizations, is exactly about eliminating most of humanity and subjugating the rest in favour of a tiny oligarchical elite, who are so stupid that they think they can use 5G to eliminate most of humanity and cyborgize the rest, while enjoying the run of the planet for themselves. They fail to realise that 5G will destroy all life on this planet, including their own.
People need to understand controlled opposition and how it works. Organisations are either infiltrated and diverted, or they are created to control and misdirect the opposition, with the purpose of running people’s efforts into the sand. Firstenberg exhorts readers to waste their time writing more letters to environmental organisations. If at first you don’t succeed, keep using the same methods decade after decade and you will keep getting the very same results: nothing. And that is the case with Firstenberg’s claimed multidecadal efforts to stop wireless technology. His impact in terms of any success in halting the inexorable expansion of wireless technology or preventing its depredations is effectively zero. I wonder why.
Looking back, I wonder now if the creation of the International Appeal to Stop 5G on Earth and in Space was always about misdirecting people, unbeknownst to me while I worked full-time for many months drafting, editing and administering the production of its 30 language versions. Firstenberg sabotaged this effort by taking nine months to automate the sign-up mechanism for the Appeal! The Appeal reached the notice of tens of millions of people so why are there only 300K or so signatories?
In his newsletter, Firstenberg claims to be very concerned about space debris, collisions in space, and the Kessler syndrome. Yet these are the very issues that I discussed in a text I drafted for inclusion in the Appeal, but which Firstenberg deleted! He refused point blank to include my text on space in the Appeal and told me that it was not relevant, when the very title of the Appeal included the word “space”! My text was based on my knowledge of the concerns about the use of space expressed at the United Nations, where for many years I edited all the documents of the Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space and its two subcommittees: scientific and technical, and legal.
Despite belatedly alerting the public to these important issues, what Firstenberg still scrupulously avoids mentioning – but which is in my text – is the issue of the weaponization of space. This was the number one concern in the space context at the UN year after year. My original text, excluded from the text of the Appeal by Arthur Firstenberg three years ago, may be found here.
Firstenberg also omits to inform the public that NATO declared space a domain of warfare in December 2019. If the Appeal had included my space text, vast numbers of people would have been paying attention, instead of which this planet-threatening event went virtually unnoticed.
What else did Firstenberg fight tooth and nail to exclude from the text of the Appeal?
· The precautionary principle
· The polluter-pays principle.
Both of these are relevant to the 5G discussion in the European context, if not elsewhere.
Now that we have identified these egregious omissions, we may wonder if there is other evidence that Firstenberg has impeded rather than forwarded efforts to stop 5G. We find that:
· When a benefactor funded a public relations effort to promote the Appeal in the UK at great expense, Firstenberg sabotaged it, resulting in no articles published and just two short and futile interviews with know-nothing DJs who couldn’t even pronounce his name, let alone “electromagnetic radiation”
· When an NGO submitted a document on 5G to the United Nations and I edited it to a UN standard, Firstenberg reversed almost all of my edits, sabotaging the quality of the document
· When asked if he would agree to the summary of his book being given away as a freebie for an online summit on 5G, Firstenberg refused, thereby preventing hundreds of thousands of people from learning information that could have prompted them to engage
· Firstenberg never shared with me a single cent of money donated for the Appeal to cover my expenses while I promoted the Appeal for a full year
· Firstenberg tasked a third party with contacting me to tell me to stop talking about HAARP as a weapon
· Firstenberg lies that geoengineering/weather warfare/chemtrails is not taking place when it is fully documented and acknowledged
· Firstenberg refused to accept translations of his own newsletters that I organized in order to ensure that they reached people in different countries.
Furthermore, for two years I organised the translation into English and 10 further languages of a summary of Firstenberg’s book that had originally been made by a francophone reader and ensured its free-of-charge dissemination worldwide, thereby promoting knowledge and sales of Firstenberg’s book itself, and yet Firstenberg has shown virtually no interest in the original French summary or the other language versions, including English, and never put them on his website.
In February 2020, I sent the English summary to Robert David Steele and explained its relevance at the beginning of the “Covid” scam, in reference to the cruise ships equipped with 5G. He immediately published it on his website, with the result that thousands of people were able to see through the “Covid” hoax at an early stage.
Above we’ve listed a number of Firstenberg’s omissions. But what else is he not telling you?
· Firstenberg is not telling you that wireless technology is a weapon, developed through many decades of military research.
Although Firstenberg blithely acknowledges that the US military spent decades compiling compendia of largely Soviet research on the biological effects of electromagnetic radiation (EMR), he fails to draw the obvious conclusion, that the purpose was to use EMR and wireless technology as weapons. It’s as if we are to assume that, just as some people collect stamps, the US military collected research papers on the multifarious biological effects of EMR. We are not to imagine that they had any intention of doing anything in the least unpleasant with this information.
In the course of our collaboration on the 5G Space Appeal, we had many arguments about whether wireless technology and 5G are weapons, which he categorically denies.
Firstenberg excludes weapons experts from the 5G debate and/or attacks their credentials and good faith. This includes Barrie Trower, who spent decades debriefing Soviet Cold War spies about microwave weapons; Mark Steele, who is a weapons expert with many patents to his name; and Jerry Flynn, ex-Signals Intelligence with the Canadian military, whom I have never heard Firstenberg even mention.
It is instructive to compare the contents of Firstenberg’s 2017 book, Invisible Rainbow: A History of Electricity and Life, and those of Robert O. Becker’s 1985 book, The Body Electric: Electromagnetism and the Foundation of Life. Firstenberg likes to quote Becker, but only selectively.
While the mention of EMR as a weapon is taboo for Firstenberg, Becker has a whole chapter on it, entitled “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer”, a reference to a famous Beatles song about a murderer. And he has a whole section on invisible warfare. Becker even describes manipulation of our electromagnetic environment as “the ultimate weapon … because it’s imperceptibly subtle and strikes at the core of life itself”.
· Firstenberg is not telling you about the early use of EMR as a weapon.
I see no mention in the index of Invisible Rainbow of the Moscow or Woodpecker signals. The former was the irradiation of the US embassy in Moscow by the Russians between 1962 and 1979, at levels within US exposure guidelines. The US set up Project Pandora to secretly study the effects on its embassy staff, which revealed that they had a white blood cell count 40% higher than normal and “lots of chromosome breaks”. Three ambassadors died and hundreds of staff developed diseases.
The “Woodpecker Signal“ was a pulse-modulated, extremely low frequency (ELF) signal emanating from an enormous transmitter near Chernobyl in Ukraine from 1976 until 1986, when the Chernobyl disaster put a stop to it. The UN International Telecommunications Union protested as it interfered with, inter alia, the emergency frequencies for aircraft on transoceanic flights.
Within a year or two of it starting, people in the US and Canada were complaining of unaccountable symptoms such as pressure and pain in the head, anxiety, fatigue, insomnia, lack of coordination, numbness and ringing in the ears.
Immediately before the outbreak of “Covid” in the city of Wuhan, China in October 2019, China had installed tens of thousands of 5G antennas there. In January 2019, China had also completed building a military ELF radio antenna on a site five times the size of New York. The usual purpose of such military installations is worldwide communication with submarines. In 2007, the World Health Organization (WHO) conducted a large number of studies associating ELF waves with a variety of diseases and symptoms, including hallucinations, lack of sleep, stress, depression, breast and brain cancers, miscarriages and suicide.
Where is this gigantic ELF radio antenna located? Its precise location is secret, but sources believe that it is in the region of Huazhong. Both Wuhan and Huazhong are in Hubei province, and the Huazhong University of Science and Technology is located in Wuhan. Are we justified in assuming that this giant military antenna and Wuhan, the city where “Covid” first broke out, are in close proximity?
We know that ELF radiation is amplified in the magnetosphere up to one hundred thousand-fold, changing the Earth’s electromagnetic environment. Becker warned that the continued expansion of this effect “threatens the viability of all life on Earth”.
Is it really a coincidence then that “Covid”, which is not a disease but an umbrella designation for a series of discrete, inexplicable and never-before-seen-together symptoms, should have broken out shortly after these two developments? After all, this danger is precisely what EMF scientists and doctors have been clamouring about for many years in at least 60 public petitions and appeals.
· Firstenberg is not telling you that HAARP is a weapon.
In his book, Invisible Rainbow, Firstenberg mentions the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Project (HAARP) in terms of the dangers of putting so much energy into the ionosphere and using it as a giant radio transmitter. But what is he not telling you about HAARP?
A European Union report published in 1999 refers to the Alaska-based HAARP system as a weapon involving environmental manipulation and asked for information from the US on its risk to public health. HAARP was described as a research project using a ground-based apparatus, an array of antennae each powered by its own transmitter, to heat up portions of the ionosphere with powerful radio beams. The energy generated heats up parts of, and makes holes in, the ionosphere, which is what protects us from incoming cosmic radiation. It had links with 50 years of intensive space research for military purposes, including the Star Wars project, to control the upper atmosphere and communications. The report described HAARP as a serious threat to the environment, with an incalculable impact on human life. It described HAARP as being in breach of the Convention on the Prohibition of Military or Any Other Hostile Use of Environmental Modification Techniques, the Antarctic Treaty, the Outer Space Treaty, and the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea. (See also documentary on HAARP with Dr. Nick Begich and documentary on HAARP from the History Channel.)
I reported on the weapon aspect of HAARP in this article: For Sale to Lowest 5G Bidder: Planet Earth (Populations & Wildlife Optional), section entitled “Has the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Project (HAARP) system morphed into 5G?”
HAARP bears a remarkable resemblance to 5G. HAARP is an ionospheric heater that uses banks of antennas arranged in phased arrays with a beam-forming ability. 5G also uses phased array antennas and has a beamforming ability. Like 5G, HAARP can be used as a communications system; it has mental-disruption possibilities; it can seriously impair the brain performance of very large populations; it can put voices in people’s heads (voice to skull); it can heat the skin; it can change populations’ emotional state over vast geographical areas, and perhaps even change and manipulate thought and behaviour; and it can create a lethargic or highly energized response.
This is what Zbigniew Brzezinski quoted in his 1970 book entitled Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technetronic Era (footnote, p. 28):
“By the year 2018, technology will make available to the leaders of the major nations a variety of techniques for conducting secret warfare, of which only a bare minimum of the security forces need be appraised. One nation may attack a competitor covertly by bacteriological means, thoroughly weakening the population (though with a minimum of fatalities) before taking over with its own overt armed forces. Alternatively, techniques of weather modification could be employed to produce prolonged periods of drought or storm, thereby weakening a nation’s capacity and forcing it to accept the demands of the competitor” (Gordon J. F. MacDonald, Space, in Toward the Year 2018, p. 34).”
Weather warfare is now a reality (see The Dimming, March 2021).
· Firstenberg is not telling you that EMR is a bioweapon.
Lt. Col. Tom Bearden explained in 2005 (Oblivion: America at the Brink) how EMR can be used for pathogenic priming by transmitting frequencies that simulate numerous pathogens attacking the immune system simultaneously. When the immune system meets a real pathogen, the body goes into cytokine shock. Vaccines together with EMR constitute a binary weapon.
· Firstenberg is not telling you about 5G’s capacity for mind control.
Firstenberg does not mention the CIA MKUltra mind control programme or Jose Delgado in the index to Invisible Rainbow. Becker, however, reports that Delgado described the EMR control over his experimental animals as follows: “The animals looked like electronic toys”.
Delgado’s research took place many decades ago. Current mind control techniques are much more sophisticated. Becker told us way back in 1985 that combined radiofrequency and microwave broadcasts “designed to produce specific thoughts or moods, such as compliance and complacency, promise a method of mind control that poses immense danger to all societies – tyranny without terror”.
· Firstenberg is not telling you that Russian President Khrushchev said (in 1960!) that “these new weapons could wipe out all life on earth if unrestrainedly used”.
· Firstenberg is not telling you that in 1975 Russian President Brezhnev sought to put EMR weapons on the agenda of the First Committee of the UN General Assembly, which deals with disarmament and threats to peace. He called them “more frightful than the mind of man has ever imagined”. The US refused and instead developed EMR weapons itself.
In fact, Firstenberg flatly denies the abundant evidence about all these threats posed by EMR. He interrupted a fellow speaker during an online meeting to announce that he wouldn’t listen to anything about a plandemic or conspiracy theories about globalists planning depopulation.
Echoing Khrushchev and Brezhnev, Lt. Col. Tom Bearden wrote in 1991 that “This technology will give us the capability to engineer reality itself – both physical reality, life and mind – And we will be able to engineer it to be either a heaven or a hell; the choice is up to us”. Thirty years later, the technology to produce that hell on earth is complete. We now have NATO describing “cognitive warfare”, which they call “the new third operational dimension”, additional to the cyber and the physical dimensions that are already acknowledged. Terrestrial 5G, 5G beamed from satellites, and HAARP are capable of creating a hell on earth of cognitive intrusion and undetectable holographic insertions on a small to gigantic scale, in which we would be deprived of both the option and the cognitive ability to distinguish reality from virtual reality.
You have to ask why Firstenberg would seek to actively suppress information about the multifarious demonic uses of wireless technology and 5G, and even deny the facts, despite the existence of so much proof of EMR and wireless technology, in particular as 4G LTE and 5G, being not just weapons, but weapons with such a range of horrendous uses: to destroy targets remotely as a directed energy weapon, to emotionally and mentally manipulate people, to take over people’s minds, to read people’s thoughts, to insert thoughts and speech in people’s heads, to create virtual reality objects and scenarios around people, to physically control people, to exterminate people, to secretly attack people as a bioweapon, to manipulate the weather, to surveil people, to imprison people, to control crowds, to commodify nature itself, and much more.
Firstenberg’s sabotage of his own Appeal and of my efforts to promote his own work internationally, his choice of such dubious alliances, his counter-productive choice of strategies, his egregious omissions, and the absence of positive results from all his claimed efforts put his good faith in serious doubt.
However, Firstenberg is not alone. It has to be acknowledged that – to my knowledge – all the EMF scientists and doctors remain silent on the issue of EMR and wireless technology as weapons. Why do so many prominent campaigners who claim to be striving to stop 5G not inform the public of the weapons aspects of wireless technology, and instead fraudulently peddle the notion that you could protect yourself from this planetary-scale and historically unprecedented onslaught by, for example, wearing a shungite pendant? Such a blatant lie would be laughable if it were not such a hideous betrayal of humanity, hiding from us the truth of our vulnerability to imminent annihilation.
Compounding this deplorable record is Firstenberg’s disempowering campaigning style. He preaches a gospel of apocalypse, fear and victimhood. According to him, there is no guiding hand directing this greatest assault on humanity in known human history. For Firstenberg, it is all an unfortunate mistake and no one need be held responsible. All we need do as powerless little victims is write yet more letters or click on yet more petitions appealing to all the vested interests and explain that all this is killing us and our beloved and sustaining flora, fauna and planet, and by some miracle they will wake up and stop doing it. At least 60 previous appeals and petitions attest to the futility of this idea. Quite apart from anything else, corporations would be sued by their shareholders if they suddenly made themselves bankrupt by halting their activities. We have to understand that we have both the responsibility and the capacity to take the measures necessary to force them to stop.
Learning that you are under attack from everywhere with unknown and silent weapons more terrible, more insidious and more demonic even than nuclear weapons is beyond terrifying. Hearing that these weapons have the capacity to mind- and physically control you, alter your thoughts and emotions, turn you into an avatar in a dystopian sci-fi movie and exterminate you at will is about as deeply disturbing as it gets. But we are not going to save ourselves by burying our heads in the sand or reassuring each other with lies. What the world needs now, above all, is people willing to face the truth and stand up to defend humanity.
A key word at this time of choice between life and death is discernment. Too much is at stake now for you to remain on the sidelines. You have to decide who is telling the truth and who is seeking to mislead and misdirect you. To discern truth from lies, you will have to listen to your intuition, for without it you will be vulnerable to the latest seductive misdirection. I am not asking you to believe me. I am asking you to do your own research and listen to your heart.
Perhaps Firstenberg’s most reprehensible omission is the spiritual dimension. The challenge of near annihilation is here to wake us up from our torpor, wilful blindness and irresponsibility, and enable us to fulfil our potential as powerful, creator human beings. We are not victims. The responsibility for our near annihilation actually lies with us. We allowed this to happen by tacitly consenting to allowing corrupt institutions, governments and corporations to saturate our planet with more and more electromagnetic radiation, and our militaries to develop the most terrible weapons ever to have been imagined.
If we are to row back from imminent enslavement and/or annihilation, we need a truth and reconciliation commission. However, the ones who most urgently need to come to terms with the truth and be reconciled with their own complicity in bringing us to the brink of extinction are none other than ourselves. Instead of following pied pipers who mislead us through manipulation, lies and omissions, let’s choose to start facing the truth.
Let’s stand up now to say a resounding “No!” to the ongoing holocaust of all life on earth. The only way we can make our stance clear is by smashing our cell phones right now, this minute. None of this agenda would be possible if we gave up our addiction to the death phones.
Excerpt from Arthur Firstenberg newsletter, 23.2.21
ON CLIMATE, RADIATION, AND
THE ENVIRONMENTAL MOVEMENT
ON FEBRUARY 10, 2021, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, based in San Francisco, refused to reconsider its decision in Juliana v. United States. The child plaintiffs in that case are demanding that the United States stop permitting, authorizing and subsidizing the burning of fossil fuels. The children are demanding that the United States give them back their future. Having lost in the Ninth Circuit, they are preparing to appeal their case to the U.S. Supreme Court.
A FEW WEEKS AGO, another, equally important case was argued before the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals, based in Denver. In that case, Santa Fe Alliance v. City of Santa Fe, we are demanding that a federal law that prohibits the City from protecting its residents from cell tower radiation be struck down as unconstitutional. We, too, are demanding to be given back our future. Win or lose, our case too will likely end up before the Supreme Court.
The Earth is going down rapidly, and on some level everyone knows it. But in the last 50 years, the environmental movement has become fragmented, and must be woven back together if we are to have any chance of survival. We must advocate not just for birds, and amphibians, and whales, and elephants, and bats, and bees, and trees, and human health, each separately, as the world is doing today, but for all of them together, because they are all one. We must work not just against climate change, and radiation, and pesticides, and habitat destruction, and plastics, and air pollution, and groundwater pollution, and deforestation, each separately, as the world is doing today, but against all of them together, because the root cause is the same.
The workers, millions of them, all over the planet, are attempting frantically to plug thousands of holes in the dam in a futile attempt to prevent it from bursting, instead of recognizing that it is the dam itself that is destroying us, and that it must be dismantled in order that the river once more run free. The river is life, with its blessings and dangers. The dam, growing taller by the minute, is our efforts to multiply the blessings and eliminate all the dangers. The holes are from the pressure by the river to break free. Do we have the wisdom to stop, to begin removing the dam, little by little, to let the water of life flow over the top again, before the dam we are working so hard to maintain is destroyed in a flood that will surely kill us all?
I have spent the last couple of months compiling lists of email addresses for staff, officers, scientists and board members of all of the major environmental organizations in the world, and I am now ready to assemble a team to write letters to them all. To urge them to all start working together again. And to begin a discussion that will result in the creation of Radiation Programs within each of their organizations — programs to stop the radiation that comes from cell phones, cell towers, and satellites; radiation that until now the world has pretended is not there.
Stop 5G International is collecting signatures from individuals and organizations on an Open Letter to Elon Musk and SpaceX asking for a halt to the satellite program. “We write to you today,” says the letter, “to ask you to halt the Starlink project because it is so destructive.” The letter lists some of the consequences of filling the sky with tens of thousands of disposable satellites:
visible pollution of the night sky
interference with astronomy & meteorology
rocket exhaust, contributing to ozone depletion and climate change
ground and water pollution from intensive use of increasingly many spaceports
accumulating space debris
continual deorbiting and burning up of aging satellites, polluting the atmosphere with toxic dust and smoke
ever-increasing likelihood of collisions
increasing risk of the Kessler syndrome
10 thoughts on “Why is Arthur Firstenberg not telling you that 5G is a weapon? – By Claire Edwards”
Appalled to receive Firstenburg’s newsletter about chem trails, in which he attacked and undermined other campaigners. He is causing damage to the cause, sewing division along with complete fallacy. The Marxist tactic is destroy from within, long march through institutions including campaign groups.They are already weaponizing wireless 5G, directly against some, aka ‘Havana syndrome.’ I am being attacked at night with it on my body, especially arms and hands. They have even used a.i. with IoT for remote plastic surgery in a spiteful, vindictive way against me, targeting my face. Their technology is way more advanced than they are letting on. So I am an anecdote of ‘targeted invidividuals’, but what will happen later on if this would be dictatorship takes hold? It may no longer be a covert weapon of punishment and control. I have just woken from another night of being attacked so hammering on a bit, maybe not directly related enough. So glad you have written this, thank you.
Firstenberg is part of “the tribe” that is involved in many destructive endeavors, including the current attempted takeover of the Earth. He is controlled opposition 100% and cannot be trusted despite the fact that he has put out some good information about the electricity/radiation issue.
I was shocked to also receive an e-mail from Arthur Firstenberg entitled “THE GREAT “CHEMTRAILS” HOAX” on 1.2.23 – another commenter has posted it above. I have received e-mails from this man for a number of years now, but in truth have never had time to study them in detail – I always assumed he was a genuine anti-5G campaigner associated with a major petition which I signed. However as soon as I read this title I knew he must be a controlled op. This is very disappointing and underlines just how severe attack we are under now. I am very glad to have found your article. Its important that people learn of this controlled op and not be fooled by it.
Firstenberg is most definitely controlled opposition. I do not trust him, despite the fact that he puts out some good info.
Received the following email dated 31 January 2023:
THE GREAT “CHEMTRAILS” HOAX
In 1918, just 15 years after the Wright Brothers took their first flights, American soldiers in France were describing clouds that sometimes formed behind airplanes. Captain Ward S. Wells, for example, wrote from the Bois de Hess, behind Montfaucon (Scientific American, June 7, 1919, p. 601):
There were two or three days of rain, when came a wonderfully clear and beautiful morning with not a cloud in sight… Our attention was first drawn to the sky by the sudden appearance of several strange and startling clouds — long, graceful, looping ribbons of white. They were tapering to a point at one end… On close observation we noticed some distance ahead of each cloud point the tiny speck of a chase plane. Apparently the churning of the air was all that was needed to upset the delicately balanced meteorological conditions and precipitate this strange cloud formation.
German geophysicist, meteorologist and astronomer Alfred Wegener, who first advanced the theory of continental drift, also described persistent contrails. Writing in January 1920, he described a cloud 50 kilometers long that formed behind three airplanes that flew over Munich, and explained the physics behind it.
On May 9, 1919, and again on May 11, German pilot Zeno Diemer, flying at an altitude of 30,000 feet, at a temperature of about -50⁰ C, noticed the formation of a cloud stream that extended for about forty miles behind his plane. Each time, this stream gradually spread out to form a cloud layer that was about 3,000 feet thick. (Luftfahrt, Mai 1919, p. 17; Nature, May 3, 1930, p. 693).
As the technology improved and airplanes began flying at ever higher, colder altitudes, persistent contrails became more common. By the beginning of World War II, airplanes flying above 30,000 feet, as commercial airplanes do today, often left long, thickening clouds trailing behind them. In February 1942, French aviation pioneer and famed author Antoine Saint-Exupéry published Flight to Arras, a memoir of his service flying high-altitude combat missions against Nazi Germany in 1939 and 1940. He described the challenges of his reconnaissance missions, including the cold that could freeze the controls of his aircraft, and the anxiety of knowing his plane was trailing a white streamer that pinpointed his position for enemy fighters and gunners. Saint-Exupéry wrote:
The German on the ground knows us by the pearly white scarf which every plane flying at high altitude trails behind like a bridal veil. The disturbance created by our meteoric flight crystallizes the watery vapor in the atmosphere. We unwind behind us a cirrus of icicles. If the atmospheric conditions are favorable to the formation of clouds, our wake will thicken bit by bit and become an evening cloud over the countryside.
This was a problem for every nation. Flight Lieutenant M. V. Longbottom of Britain’s Royal Air Force, after consulting with a French meteorologist, wrote a report titled “Condensation Trails at High Altitudes,” in which he wrote that contrails will form under conditions of low temperature and high humidity. Under these conditions, he wrote, “the rapidly expanding gases from the exhausts” of the plane cause “sudden condensations to form in [the plane’s] wake.” This also meant that there might be layers in the atmosphere some of which would support contrail formation while others would not. And indeed this was the experience of the fighter pilots: when heavy contrails started forming behind them, they could sometimes stop their formation by descending one or two thousand feet.
Between 1928 and 1931, America’s top airman, General Henry H. Arnold, directed a project whose objective was finding a way to reduce aircraft vulnerability to enemy gunners by dissipating their contrails.
And in September 1942, the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics issued a report on condensation trails explaining how and why they form, and that their persistence depends on temperature and humidity at that altitude.
Not only the higher altitude of airplanes, but the introduction of jet fighters during World War II made persistent vapor trails commonplace in the sky. They became a common feature also in peacetime skies after commercial jets became common during the 1960s.
Donald R. Baucom published a two-part history of contrails through 1945: “Wakes of War: Contrails and the Rise of Air Power, 1918-1945”, Air Power History, Summer 2007, pp. 16-31, and Fall 2007, pp. 4-21.
Here is a photograph from World War II, in which the exhaust clouds behind jet fighters blended together and covered the sky:

A Complete Colour Encyclopedia by Richard Scorer:
I have a lot of such pictures from the past. But the most vivid are the ones engrained in my memory from my freshman year at college. Air traffic was exploding in the skies over upstate New York. It was 1968, as I sat high in the bell tower overlooking Ithaca. The tunes I was playing on the Cornell chimes rang out over the campus, and spilled down the hill into town. After my morning concert, I gathered up my books, descended the 162 steps, and hiked down into the bottom of Triphammer Gorge to study.
As I lay on my rock drinking in the early freshness of the breeze and the unbroken blue of the sky, I saw far above me a jet plane on its way to some unknown destination, leaving a widening trail of water vapor behind it — and then another, crossing the first, and another and another. By early afternoon, my beautiful sunny sky was gone. Not a trace of blue was left.
I tried to tell everyone I knew what was happening, but no one cared.
Eventually I moved out to the less humid west, where the sky was still blue and the growing rivers of air travelers left relatively little trace. That changed during the 1990s. Even in the arid west, there is a limit to how much water you can pump into the high layers of sky without making clouds. But half a nation of people who were used to air traffic being invisible did not know what they were seeing.
Origin of a Hoax
A couple of con artists from Lancaster, Ohio took advantage of that fact. Larry Wayne Harris was a lieutenant colonel in the white-supremacist organization Aryan Nations and a member of the racist, anti-Semitic sect Christian Identity. He was arrested for possession of bubonic plague bacteria in 1997, and convicted of wire fraud for posing as a research microbiologist to obtain it. He was arrested for possession of anthrax and convicted of impersonation of a CIA agent in 1998. He and his neighbor Richard Lew Finke are the people who invented “chemtrails.” But it took a nationwide radio show to popularize it, so widely that it has become nearly impossible for the average citizen to sort out the truth, to distinguish fact from fiction.
In 1996, Harris offered his services to analyze soil samples that he said were contaminated by fallout from additives in jet fuel. He told his clients that their samples contained ethylene dibromide (EDB), and that it was being added to jet fuel as part of a depopulation agenda. No matter that EDB was an agricultural pesticide that persisted in the soil for years. It was in agricultural soil, he said, because it fell from the sky. The following year he and Finke took this fable even further: they started a consulting company purporting to analyze soil, water and jet fuel samples and Finke sent out an email announcement about “genocide” via “lines in the sky.”
In 1998, that email slowly circulated and became embellished. EDB became transformed by some into aluminum, barium, and strontium. These were also found in samples of soil and groundwater and were also said to have fallen from the sky. No matter that aluminum and barium are also in agricultural pesticides, and that strontium is in gypsum and other minerals and is ubiquitous in groundwater.
In January 1999, Canadian journalist Will Thomas, still sticking to the EDB story, embellished it even more: he published two articles speculating that poisoned contrails were being “sprayed” by unmarked military jets, were related to HAARP, and were being used for weather modification. On January 25, 1999, Thomas appeared on Coast to Coast conspiracy radio, and disseminated a version of the fable to millions of people. On February 10, 1999, still talking about EDB, he sent out an email telling people to “TAKE COVER IMMEDIATELY” and to “STAY INDOORS when contrails are being woven overhead.” He said that “Emergency Rooms are overflowing with acute respiratory cases from coast to coast,” that the New York Times was reporting that “this is not the flu,” that the BBC was reporting 6,000 deaths from respiratory failure in England in two weeks, and that there was “a BBC photo of a freezer-semi filled with dead bodies”. However the epidemic he described did not actually exist, and neither the BBC nor the New York Times reported any such thing.
But Thomas continued to embellish these reports on Coast to Coast radio. In March 1999, he coined the word “chemtrails.” He introduced the notion that “contrails” dissipate quickly and “chemtrails” do not. Whereas 80 years previously Wegener had explained that whether they dissipate or not depends on temperature, pressure and humidity.
Belief in the epidemic that Thomas had invented out of whole cloth spread round the world and has been impossible to eradicate since. Rather, it has been disseminated and embellished by a variety of individuals of questionable motives, all of them non-scientists, who to varying degrees have made their living from it: computer consultant Clifford Carnicom; filmmaker Michael John Murphy; TV weatherman Scott Stevens; builder of solar systems Dane Wigington; and author Elana Freeland.
More recently, in an attempt not to sound like conspiracy theorists, those spreading the fable have embellished it even more, claiming that the lines in the sky are being sprayed to combat global warming, and they are using the term “geoengineering” instead of “chemtrails” to sound more credible. Wigington’s website, for example, is now called geoengineeringwatch.org. But this newer invented purpose is in addition to depopulation, weather control, and “ionization” of the atmosphere to enhance global communications. And it has nothing to do with actual proposals to remedy global warming, which are found on geoengineeringmonitor.org, nogeoingegneria.com, and other websites that report only real information.
Early on, Thomas began to deliberately combine real information about electromagnetic radiation with made-up stories about “chemtrails,” and Freeland and others have further embellished and reinforced this. This confuses the public, discredits those of us with an important message, and does yeoman’s work for the telecommunications industry. The reason this is so important, and the reason I am sending out a newsletter about it, is that the “chemtrails” fable has been promulgated so successfully that according to a 2016 survey, almost 40% of Americans believe in it and only 34% are sure that it is false. This is also true of EMF activists and the people protesting 5G: a huge number of them believe in “chemtrails,” or “geoengineering” as it is now wrongly called, and do not believe in global warming. This discredits us and makes it more difficult to gain traction with the media and with environmental organizations.
Ironically, EDB actually was and still is being used as an additive in airplane fuel, just not in military or commercial jets. It is used as an antiknock agent in leaded fuel in general aviation by piston-engine airplanes that do not fly high enough to leave contrails behind them. That is the real scandal: 38 years after leaded fuel was banned in cars in the United States, 175,000 small airplanes are still spewing lead into all the air we breathe.

Thanks for sharing this!
Firstenberg is not to be trusted.
Having just finished reading “Tavistock Institute”, I totally get how we have been “socially engineered” fopr decades and distracted from the truth.
As a Certified EMF Safety Consultant who has researched this for several years…I can conclusively say that 5G is so easily weaponized that there’s no way 5G ISN’T a weapon of physical, psychological and spiritual control.
Seeing ahead to the next phase….I have come to the conclusion that 5G represents the very takeover of human consciousness and “free will”. That means it goes against God and comes from a very evil place. It subverts the very frequency of our existence and our planet….our matrix reality. It disconnects us from each other and our creator. It is, literally, Lucifer is stealing souls from God.
The next question is “What will he DO with the consciousness he has stolen? Likely focus it and weaponize it. That’s what evil does.
Imagine what one could do with the unlimited power of humanity’s consciousness – weaponized?
Absolutely spot-on Sharon. You said that so well. And let’s just hope he does not succeed and that humanity awakens before it is too late.

The impacts of 5G/60 GHz are not widely published. Here’s what we know from big telecom company promotional material: “60 GHz has a very distinct impact on none other than oxygen itself.” Yes, articles from companies touting benefits of 5G admit 60 GHz is absorbed by oxygen as seen by this graph.
Oxygen the atom is O. Oxygen the molecule is 02. Two atoms together.
These two atoms form the oxygen molecule and share some electrons. 60 GHz causes electrons surrounding oxygen molecules to spin, akin to how high-powered microwaves running on 2.4 impact molecules in food such as water. They’re heating, in part, by impacting those molecules to rotate or oscillate with each wave. The movement energy from the rotation of these super tiny water molecules helps heat the rest of the food.
In a similar way that 2.4 causes H20 to oscillate, 5G/60 GHz even at low power causes electrons on oxygen molecules to spin, changes to the spin frequencies on oxygen electrons impact human biology.
When you breathe air into your lungs it gets oxygen into your blood, brain, tissues etc. and oxygen entering your lungs gets picked up by a very important iron containing protein called hemoglobin in your blood.
The impact of oxygen molecules spinning the electrons is that it makes the hemoglobin unable to uptake the oxygen and get it to the rest of your body.
