Every year, millions of people come to see the Grand Canyon National Park, one of the seven natural wonders of the world. However, on extremely rare days when cold air is trapped in the canyon and topped by a layer of warm air, which in combination with moisture and condensation, form the phenomenon referred to as the “full cloud inversion.”

Atmospheric Study & Gravity Waves

Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
May 18, 2017

Every now and then someone sends me the abstract to a scientific article that really spins the tumblers in my mind, and today is no different, for Mr. V.T., a regular reader and article-contributer, found a real gem. This is, however, regrettably one of those articles that to read in full, one has to purchase it, which I cannot afford to do. Nonetheless, I was intrigued for a multitude of “high octane speculation” reasons. With the caveat in mind that we’re resorting to a departure from our usual “high octane” methodology, where we speculate on the basis of a whole article which we assume to be true, to this present case, where we’re speculating only on the basis of an abstract, on to the gem that Mr. V.T. discovered:

A case study of long gravity wave crests in noctilucent clouds and their origin in the upper tropospheric jet stream

I have to admit, that when I read the abstract, it confirmed some long-held and strictly private thoughts; its implications are rather breathtaking, if one allows the mind to “run wild” a bit. Here’s the abstract:

Scientists have investigated atmospheric gravity waves in detail, bringing a better understanding of how and where they are generated. Their study was published in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres.

An international team of physicists, which included researchers from the Moscow Engineering Physics Institute, captured images of atmospheric gravity waves in noctilucent (night) clouds — delicate cloud-like structures made from ice crystals in the upper atmosphere — using three synchronized cameras positioned several tens of kilometres apart, and used a triangulation technique to estimate the height and horizontal characteristics of the waves.

By simulating the rays’ interactions with a reflecting surface and combining it with an analysis of global meteorological data sets, they concluded that the waves were formed from the balancing of the Coriolis force with horizontal pressures, and that the upper tropospheric jet stream was their most likely source.  (bold-italics emphasis added)

At the 2014 San Mateo Secret Space program conference I pointed out that the ability to manipulate or engineer weather, or earthquakes, implied the ability to engineer – and potentially, to weaponize – systems of a planetary scale. I’ve been calling such ideas the “Farrell Corollaries” to the Kardashev scale. To refresh our memories for a moment, the famous Russian astronomer Nikolai Kardashev developed a simple classification system to give a taxonomy to any potential extra-terrestrial civilizations. A class one civilization required the energy of an entire planet; a class two civilization required the energy of an entire star, and a class three the energy of an entire galaxy.  I began to wonder: how would humanity “bluff” its way through an encounter with the first two civilization types? One way to do so would be to demonstrate a capability to engineer systems of those scales, and to demonstrate an ability to weaponize them: hence the ability to engineer planetary-scaled systems would be a corollary one civilization, and the ability to engineer systems of a stellar scale would be a corollary two civilization. And, if one wants to translate one scale to another, think of a corollary one as being a kind of n=<1 civilization, and corollary two civilization as akind of n= >1 <2 on the Kardashev scale, i.e., falling in the cracks between Kardashev’s first two civilization types.

With that idea came the idea of weather manipulation: weather systems are systems of a planetary scale, when one gets right down to it. Researchers who’ve followed the topic of weather modification, geo-engineering, chemtrails, or weather weaponization over the years have focused their attentions on large ionospheric heaters like HAARP and EISCAT, pointing out that these machines had the capability to heat and lift portions of the ionosphere, thus giving a potential to modify the jet stream and move it around, in turn effectively steering weather systems which, incidentally, can have energy loaded into, or extracted from, them, intensifying or damping storms respectively.

To round out my private speculations, I’m one of those who believes that there is some sort of not-well-understood coupling mechanisms between gravity and electromagnetism. The idea of such a unification has been around for a long time: Kaluza-Klein, and for the connoisseur of the obscure, Gabriel Kron and T.T. Brown. If such a coupling existed, then planetary weather modification techniques and technologies would, perforce, have to have some gravitational component.

Reading the abstract carefully, one notes the following points and implications:

1) The measurements establishing the existence of gravity waves were correlated with meteorological data, which implies, perhaps, a relationship between weather systems and local gravitational conditions (tornadoes, hurricanes, torsion, anyone?);

2) The waves were composed of an interaction of Coriolis force and “horizontal pressures”, i.e., from the interaction of the force of a rotating system and a simple horizontal force;

3) The source of these waves was the jet stream.

Let all this sink in for a moment, for the simple implication is: , they are proposing a mechanism for the composition of gravity waves, and also proposing  that weather modification is gravity modification (and, potentially, the converse).

Consider: if one accepts the interrelatedness of all the above implications, then might one be able to intensify any of the observed gravitational effects by an increase in the electrical conductivity of the atmospheric cavity, by (to take one example) dumping heavy particulate metals in the atmosphere?

But what really “grabbed” my attention, here, was none of this considered by and of itself. What really grabbed my attention was the combination of these ideas, and the fact that if one looks at the list of authors and contributes to this paper, the majority of them are Russian, from a variety of academic research institutions in the Russian Federation, who appear, according to the abstract, to be connected to the Moscow Engineering Physics Institute. Engineering of course implies the interest of the Russians in one of two possibilities (and most likely, both): (1) to determine if someone else is engineering weather systems and gravitational anomalies and (2) to determine practical principles and technologies to do so for themselves, or (3) both.

Of course, this is a lot of parsing and analysis of a simple abstract and its contributors. The article itself, we must admit, might overturn all of it. Nonetheless, the implications that result from the abstract are profoundly disturbing.

See you on the flip side…

Something Wicked This Way Came…[Part 2]

Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
May 9, 2017

In a previous blog, this writer commented on the recent promotion of a meme that a comet strike explained the tragedy of the Younger Dryas and the stories of the Great Flood. In that blog, it was posited that Dr. Paul LaViolette’s galactic superwave hypothesis was a better fit to a wider set of data. Some of the key data points of the hypothesis are thus:

• Acid levels in Antarctica rose dramatically starting about 14,000 years ago. • Strange metals in the ice cores at nearly the same time. (Beryllium-10), which indicates proton cosmic rays • Evidence in the cosmological record exists of a number of supernovas in that time frame, which is unusual.

• The arrival of the superwave led to earthquakes and volcanic eruptions

• A cosmic dust invasion disturbed the sun’s energy distribution and vastly affected the earth. The dust vastly acidified the biosphere, leading to extinctions and massive plant death, destabilized weather, and vast social disruption

Essentially, a vast cosmic dust cloud, according to the theory, pushed past the bubble created by the solar wind and inundated the solar system. This cloud and its effects, plus the “backlighting” from the core explosion, illuminated the dust clouds in the galaxy, making the sky extra creepy, and the nickname of Venus became “the bearded star,” due to its tail through the dust.

All of these events are described in the historical record. Until Dr. LaViolette’s theory and the supporting facts were deciphered from the physical record, no one could explain the words of the ancient texts in a scientific way.

It sure would be nice to be able to know an event like this is coming.

In that light, Dr. LaViolette pointed out on his blog that the gigantic earthquake followed just such a galactic wave arrival in 2004.

He said in February 2005: “On December 26, 2004 a magnitude 9.3 earthquake occurred in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Sumatra in Malaysia. It caused a powerful tsunami, which devastated coastal regions of many countries leaving over 240,000 people either dead or missing. It was the worst tsunami to affect this area since the 1883 explosion of Krakatoa.

The earthquake that produced it was so strong that it exceeded by a factor of 10 the next most powerful earthquake to occur anywhere in the past 25 years.

Indonesian 9.3 Richter earthquake: December 26, 2004 at 00 hours 58 minutes (Universal Time) It is then with some alarm that we learn that just 44.6 hours later gamma ray telescopes orbiting the Earth picked up the arrival of the brightest gamma ray burst ever recorded! Gamma ray burst arrival: December 27, 2004 at 21 hours 36 minutes (Universal Time)” [Source: ]

The burst emanated from a powerful neutron star, SGR 1806-20, a star only 12 miles in diameter and 25,000 light years from earth. The outburst of gamma rays released more energy in a tenth of a second than the sun emits in 100,000 years. It is Dr. LaViolette’s position that the gamma rays arrived behind the gravity wave, which might even be superluminal at inception. [Emphasis mine.]

Publisher Catherine Austin Fitts noted that trading changed with respect to the Indonesian currency a short while before the earthquake and tsunami. Her theory at the time was that “the hit might have been planned.“ If earth based scientists have developed extrasolar detection technology in operation in 2004, they may have had advance notice of a superwave arrival, which does not explain the alleged ability to predict an earthquake and its location, only the coincidence.

Common knowledge says that cosmic events produce effects that travel at and near the speed of light. In order to explain how “someone” could have predicted the quake, one would need a sensing mechanism that was superluminal, as Dr. LaViolette pointed out may be possible with superwaves.

Dr. Farrell has many times described the scalar component of physical phenomena. Simply put, scalars do not compress or “wave,” and so they are not subject to the speed limit for mass at the speed of light.

Stepping out on a limb here… is it possible that someone has developed scalar sensing equipment and is using it to read space weather happening at vast distances with very little time lag? Given the suppression of scalar physics, it would explain some things and make sense given some of the more important and quieter papers in physics that are never talked about. It sure would have been nice for it to have been shared with the people who live near sea level on the Indian Ocean, but that would not have been profitable.

US faces ‘nationwide drinking water crisis,’ 77mn exposed to unsafe water in 2015 – study

US faces ‘nationwide drinking water crisis,’ 77mn exposed to unsafe water in 2015 – study

May 4, 2017

Up to 77 million Americans were serviced in 2015 by unsafe drinking water systems, with 18 million people exposed to excessive levels of lead and copper, a new study found, adding that penalties for violations are “virtually nonexistent.”

“The actual number of violations and systems breaking the law is likely substantially higher because of probable widespread underreporting,” the authors of the study by the environmental advocacy group Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) say.

According to the research, entitled “Threats on Tap: Widespread Violations Highlight Need for Investment in Water Infrastructure and Protections,” violations were reported in all 50 states in 2015, including the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and other territories covered by the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA).

The top five states with SDWA violations by population proved to be Texas, Florida, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Georgia.

Texas saw the lion’s share of health-based violations, affecting more than 4.9 million people. Puerto Rico came in second, with more than 2.4 million, followed by Ohio, Maryland, and Kentucky. When ranked by percentage of total population served, Puerto Rico had “the highest percentage of any state or territory, with 69.4 percent of its population served by community water systems with health-based SDWA violations,” according to the study.

Rural Americans ‘at greatest risk’

Meanwhile, very small systems, found in rural or sparsely-populated areas, account for more than half of all health-based violations, researchers said.

“Systems serving less than 500 people accounted for nearly 70 percent of all violations and a little over half of all health-based violations. This means that rural Americans could be at greatest risk from some drinking water contaminants,” the report warned.

“America is facing a nationwide drinking water crisis that goes well beyond lead contamination,” Health Program Director at NRDC and report co-author Erik Olson said in a statement.

“The problem is twofold: there’s no cop on the beat enforcing our drinking water laws, and we’re living on borrowed time with our ancient, deteriorating water infrastructure. We take it for granted that when we turn on our kitchen tap, the water will be safe and healthy, but we have a long way to go before that is reality across our country,” he added.

Researchers cited data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), according to which approximately 19.5 million Americans fall ill every year from pathogens as a result of contaminated drinking water from public water systems.

The young, the elderly and immunocompromised individuals are particularly vulnerable, the report noted, adding that “No comprehensive estimates have been published of the number of cancers, reproductive and neurological diseases, or other serious chronic health problems caused by contaminated tap water.”

Meanwhile, repercussions for violations are “virtually nonexistent,” the study said. According to the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Safe Drinking Water Information System (SDWIS) data, of over 80,000 reported violations that occurred in 2015, the agency and states took formal enforcement action against a mere 13.1 percent.

“Agencies took formal enforcement actions against 21.2 percent of health-based violations. Furthermore, penalties (either criminal punishment or civil fines) were sought or assessed for only a tiny fraction (6.7 percent) of violations,” the report revealed.

‘Trump killing Americans’ right to safe water’

According to NRDC’s report, even at its current level of funding, “the EPA and states are doing an inadequate job of monitoring, testing, and enforcing safe drinking water laws.”

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump allegedly proposed slashing the agency’s funding by 31 percent, including cuts to scientific programs, the Washington Post reported in March, citing a leaked memo.

Reductions in research funds will roll back programs on climate change, water quality, and chemical safety, as well “safe and sustainable water resources,” the document said, as cited by the newspaper.

Michigan has been at the center of a public health crisis since 2015, when tests found high amounts of lead in blood samples taken from children in Flint. In late April 2014, after at least a year of deliberation and negotiation, Flint officials and its state-mandated emergency manager switched the city’s drinking water supply to the Flint River. Residents soon complained of the water’s odd tastes, smells and coloring while officials repeatedly told them the water was safe to ingest. The situation became a full-blown crisis when, during the summer of 2015, rising levels of lead were being detected in children’s blood.

It was later determined that the Flint River water was not being treated properly, and that lead from aging water pipes was bleeding into the water supply.
