Today was a pivotal day. While I organized my out of control seed packets (see Late Bloomer Facebook page), I listened to Hay House Radio online, specifically Doreen Virtue. She said that chemtrails, or geo-engineering (the manipulation of the Earth’s atmosphere by spraying heavy metals into it from jet planes, then those particles fall to Earth), GMO’s (genetically modified organisms), fracking (forcing chemicals deep in the ground to extract natural gas) and fluoridation (forcing the public to drink water contaminated with industrial chemical waste) were making our world toxic, but, that we were not to get depressed, overwhelmed, or silent and go in a hole and pretend it isn’t happening, we were to make ourselves aware and speak out! Doreen mentioned, “What In The World Are They Spraying?” as a film to watch about chemtrails.

Since I am very aware of the other four environmental issues, I watched this mind-blowing film, and I recommend you do the same and share it with all of your friends. This is a global issue that no one can run away from. How it got started, who funds it, who gave it the green light, are questions we all should be demanding answers for, and we should be pressing our government officials, in whatever country you live, to stop it, before it’s too late.

Here’s what I did. I posted several notices on my personal Facebook, and Late Bloomer Facebook page about the film, then, I wrote to my California U.S. Senator, then  President Obama, then I posted both of those letters on both Facebook pages, and now I am writing a blog, and I hope you write your own blogs about chemtrails. We all breathe air, and need to drink water, and grow food to live. These basic rights will be taken away in the future, if we don’t act. It is up to us. Did you know that increased levels of aluminum are linked to Alzheimer’s, which is growing at an alarming rate, and that the main heavy metal in a chemtrail is aluminum? Did you know that the aluminum levels in the snow on Mt. Shasta, California, is 60 times greater than what is considered a government emergency? Any hiker drinking melted snow on Mt. Shasta is drinking poison. Did you know when Alcoa, the aluminum company, first decided they had to do something with their aluminum industrial waste, they wound up selling the public that it was good for us, and put it in the public drinking water? Don’t be silent!

My letter to President Obama at whitehouse.gov:

“President Obama, I am outraged at what I have learned about CHEMTRAILS from the film “What In The World Are They Spraying?,” and I would like to know specifically what measures you are taking to stop the global onslaught of toxic chemicals being sprayed in the atmosphere which is falling to Earth and killing trees and plants, likely contributing to all manner of health problems especially Alzheimer’s and asthma, and contaminating our water and soil. Save a nuclear war, no issue has higher priority than bringing this malicious, contaminating, global program to a close. You work and live in Washington, D.C. The skies above the halls of Congress are zig-zagged with chemtrails. Are you not concerned?

I am appalled that, in 2010, the majority of Congress, save the cautionary Democrat from TN, and the ready-to-listen Diane Feinstein had no clue about the fact this program is in effect, or even what it is, and appeared to be running away from the issue. Aren’t you all in office to serve the public good, or have chemical company lobbyists bought and paid for your influence?

As an environmentalist for decades, I had been focusing on other issues, but have heard about CHEMTRAILS. How is it the members of Congress are unaware, when the planes have been spraying toxic chemicals into the atmosphere for years?? After seeing this film, I believe wholeheartedly THIS issue should be at the top of your list. You and the members of Congress have a public duty to expose and prosecute (as they are apparently doing it without government knowledge or approval) the morally and ethically corrupt companies responsible for polluting our skies, blocking the sun, and creating fallout which contaminate the entire planet.

President Obama, I beg you to stand up against the chemical companies which must be behind it, and do something to stop this wholesale slaughter of our natural world, as a gardener growing her own food, as a mother who wants a future world for her sons and their families that is full of promise and is not contaminated, and as a citizen with rights to breathe clean air. Please let me know the measures being taken to stop it.

Please read this letter and heed the warning in the film. And I want you to talk to members of Congress. You have nothing to lose now, and the future of the planet to gain! This film was recorded in 2009. Billions of tons of contaminants have been sprayed since then. You all breathe air. Please stop it. Sincerely, Kaye Kittrell”

My letter to Sen. Diane Feinstein (CA):

“CHEMTRAILS. Sen. Feinsein, I was pleased to see your open and receptive mind in “What In The World Are They Spraying?” however, appalled that the rest of Congress, save the cautionary Democrat from TN, had no clue about the fact this is happening or even what it is, and appeared to be running away from the issue. Are they not IN office to serve the public good?

Please let me know specifically the measures being taken to stop it. That’s all I want to hear from you. I worked for Sen. James Sasser, and I know how issues are handled with constituents.

Please read this letter and heed the warning in the film. And I want you to talk to members of Congress. You all breathe air. This is happening over the halls of Congress! This film was recorded in 2009. Billions of tons of contaminants have no doubt been spread over the planet since then, while the spraying has gone unchecked. Please make me and the citizens of California aware of what’s being done to stop the destruction of our planet. Sincerely, and with respect, Kaye Kittrell”

Excellent, well-documented, thought-provoking piece from Green Momma Adventure. Highly recommended! – Kaye

“If future generations are to remember us more with gratitude than sorrow, we must achieve more than just the miracles of technology. We must also leave them a glimpse of the world as it was created, not just as it looked when we got through with it.”

–Lyndon B. Johnson, upon signing the Wilderness Act in 1964

Looking forward there is potential for a rich, environmentally sustainable future, as well as for a future where we face turmoil and collapse. Each day I read articles full of hope and articles full of depressing science, leaving me full of uncertainty as to what kind of planet my children will inherit from us. As problems grow, the need for an environmentally literate society is increasing rapidly. The job of environmental educators and interpreters is not an easy one, as we face many challenges. Three challenges that stand out in my mind include:…

Not all of my blog followers make it to Late Bloomer Facebook page, and because I feel so strongly about food security and family farmers, and I know some of you are raising pigs and chickens and other animals, I am passing along this video of pig farmer Mark Baker, fighting the new ISO pig rulings in Michigan. Mark is a retired Air Force veteran who raises the heritage breed Mangalitsa pigs on his farm, Baker’s Green Acres, in Marion, Michigan.

http://www.farmtoconsumer.org/news_wp/?p=2027

Mark asks, “Where does it end?,” meaning, it could happen with chickens and other animals, and it IS happening right now with heirloom seeds! This is why voting “Yes” for Proposition 37 in California on November 6 is so important! We have to send a strong signal to Monsanto that the people have the right to know what’s in their food.

Care about food security? Support family farmers and the work of the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund, “a 501(c)(4) nonprofit [EIN 20-8605130], (which) defends the rights and broadens the freedoms of family farms and artisan food producers while protecting consumer access to raw milk and nutrient-dense foods.” It takes a lot of guts, and money, to stand up to the government, so please support the FCDLF.

There is apparently no limit to government harassment of family farmers (which is fueled by Big Agribusiness, aka, Monsanto, ConAgra, etc.). In my view, no one has more integrity than the family farmer today, and Mark Baker and family are a perfect example, as are all the dairy farmers producing raw dairy products for human consumption. This is a very deep issue in our country that cuts to the very core of our freedoms, one of which is to grow, sell and eat the nutrient dense foods of our choice. (And don’t even get me started on the forced fluoridation of our public drinking water.) Thanks for reading and taking a stand for food freedom. – Kaye

A neighbor and friend, Mark DuBrow, who has been encouraging my vegetable garden effort, dropped by on April 23, with old friend, Vietnam Vet and student of Permaculture, Brian Willson, who shared some thoughts with me about creating biodiversity in my garden. Here is part of our conversation.
