Public Initiative to Ban Chemtrails


5th December 2011

Suffolk Co. NY to hear proposal to ban chemtrails

On Dec. 6, New York’s Suffolk County government will hold a public hearing on a proposal to ban aerial spraying of aluminum oxide, barium, sulfur, and other salts into the air over the county without first filing an Environmental Impact Statement with and receiving approval from the county’s Department of Health Services, Division of Environmental Quality.

Exempted from the proposed ban are aerosol spraying operations for agriculture, and for lyme disease, Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE), West Nile virus (WNV), and other disease vector control operations.

The hearing will be held at the Riverhead Legislative Auditorium, Evans K. Griffing Building, 300 Center Drive in Riverhead, NY at 2:30 pm.

If the public is able to convince legislators of the risk from such geoengineering operations, the legislation will then be voted on at the Dec. 20th session. Otherwise, the proposed ban will be tabled indefinitely.

Initiated by Cindy Pikoulas and her husband Jim, along with Siobhan Ciresi of Long Island Sky Watch (LISW), with the assistance of chemtrail opponent Rosalind Peterson of Agriculture Defense Coalition, the bill was finalized and proposed by legislator Edward P. Romaine (1st District). (Full text below.)

Involved in Suffolk County government since 1989, Romaine is a fiscal conservative who prioritizes saving farmland and protecting the environment. In August, he organized Long Island’s first countywide farmers market, along with the Long Island Farm Bureau.

Romaine has represented the 1st District (eastern end of Long Island) continuously since 2005. He serves on the Environment, Planning & Agriculture Committee, which voted on Nov. 28 to submit the proposed law banning such aerial spraying to a public hearing.

The Piloulases and Ciresi will speak on Dec. 6 and are urging people to “pack the hearing” to show support for the ban.

“If this proposal becomes law in Suffolk County, Long Island, it would be the first in the nation. It would be a starting point for others to follow,” said LISW in a press release.

“Eventually, our governments would have to investigate why our trees are dying in record numbers; why our waters contain toxic levels of aluminum, barium and strontium; why 90% of us are vitamin D deficient; why our crops are failing; and where all of this crazy weather is coming from.”

Cindy Pikoulas of LISW spoke with New York Sky Watch radio on Nov. 20, when she advised that tree samples from Suffolk show high levels of barium, strontium and aluminum. She is asking Long Islanders to have their water and trees tested for these chemicals in order to build a body of evidence that would spur investigations by health and environment authorities.

In addition to attending the Dec. 6 hearing, Long Islanders can contact their county legislators via

Are Exemptions Necessary?

Though exempted under the proposed ban, disease vector spraying may be a subterfuge for weather control operations, given the extreme rarity of EEV and WNV. According to the U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services:

“Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE) is a rare but serious viral disease caused by a virus transmitted by the bite of an infected mosquito with more severe symptoms than for West Nile virus. EEE is an arbovirus (short for arthropod-borne, meaning spread by insects). Birds are the source of infection for mosquitoes, which can sometimes transmit the infection to horses, other animals, and, in rare cases, people.

“West Nile Virus (WNV) was first seen in the US in 1999, in the New York City area of Queens. WNV can live in a number of types of birds and is passed bird to bird by certain types of mosquitoes. Occasionally, an infected mosquito will pass the virus to humans or other animals. Most healthy people do not get sick from the virus, but sometimes it may cause symptoms.”

Per the US Geological Survey, two horses caught WNV in 2011 and 12 caught EEE, none of them in Suffolk. Of humans, 43 contracted WNV in New York State in 2011, four of them in Suffolk County. Only one person contracted EEE in the entire state.

Of the other vector-borne diseases of concern to health authorities – St Louis Encephalitis, La Crosse Encephalitis, Powassan Virus, and locally-acquired Dengue Fever – no New Yorkers contracted any of them in 2011. (But 40 New Yorkers did contract Dengue Fever when traveling outside the US in 2011.)

Considering that the population of NYS is 19 million, the application of toxic chemicals purportedly to control for such rare vector-borne diseases where only 44 people became ill in 2011 seems absurd.

US health officials admit that Ugandans and Egyptians, where WNV was first discovered, develop a natural immunity before reaching adulthood. Using toxic chemicals that pollute the environment, leading to cancer and respiratory diseases, instead of allowing humans to develop immunity to such diseases, is an unsustainable and irresponsible control method.

Whether these vector control spray programs are involved in other activities such as solar radiation or rainfall management is uncertain. But, in addition to the obvious jets laying chemtrails at 30,000 feet, they may be involved in contributing to the high levels of aluminum, barium and strontium found in Suffolk waters and trees.

    I hope this inititive works:)

  • Mr. Rodd

    Stop the chem trails!

  • linda

    I get angry everytime I look at the sky and see this poisoning. Ive wondered who/where to go to try and stop this madness since our govt is most likely the culprit here……

  • alice

    i’ve watched the chem trails fill my beautiful Colorado sky for years . it needs to stop . its sky pollution . as an artist its not fun to try and paint the sky with poisons visually present .. its depressing .

    Hats off to those who continue to peck away at the abusers of power.If enough of us join in, we can wear them down.

  • artfrankmiami

    Please notice that you rarely see “chemtrails” except in Winter or when the air above 30,000 feet is extremely cold.

    • Kat

      not so my friend. We have them here in the middle of summer at all altitudes. Why would flight patterns go perpendicular to each other? First rows of parallel chemtrails, followed by some crosshatching. Maybe you should pay closer attention to what goes on over your head!

      • I know for sure. I have been witnessing these opiaetrons from my home near CFB Comox for a year-and-half. I have seen and felt cloud formation being manipulated, and changes in temperature and precipitation on a near-daily basis all over Vancouver Island (we have CFB Esqimalt on the south end of the island, and Victoria has been hit particularly hard by the spraying). I moved away from the Comox Valley a month ago and already I am seeing improvements in my health. Unfortunately, however, I have discovered that I am infected with Morgellon’s, which I am convinced is the result of these clandestine spraying opiaetrons. I have made it my mission to do everything in my power to stop chemtrails and right now I feel the most important thing we can be doing is awakening as many people as we can to these horrific crimes against humanity. The solution is for us all to be working collectively to restore justice on this planet, bringing our own unique strengths and ideas to the table, and this cannot take place unless people know what is happening. Let’s take our planet back!

      not my experience…i saw them all summer in the skies over the eastern townships of quebec

      Please notice that is a ‘skeptic’s myth’, passed around by skeptics. I live in Lake Tahoe. They started spraying here in 2007, and sprayed YEAR-ROUND, heavily, through 2010. They cut back after 2010, but continue to spray heavily 2 to 3 days before storms come in from the Pacific. They spray before storms to break up onshore high-pressure cells, to try to get more moisture out of storms. They’ve been spraying heavily over entire Western U.S. and Canada. I’ve seen tankers flying in groups, leaving huge plumes that fill an empty blue sky with a MESS. Last winter we got NO snow. Any chance it has to do with recklessly tampering with Mother Nature? I’d bet on it. It’s terrible for us, and terrible for the environment.

    With all of the terrifying threats to our future that we need to be addressing you fools are petrified of water vapor.

    • Marj

      Google Chemtrails my friend – these are NOT water vapor. Time to wake up to what’s happening right over your head.

    • Sharon

      I know this post is over 5 mo old, but I have to respond.
      That’s the difference, the do not dissipate, like the ones from my childhood.
      These stay ALL DAY, there are as many as 20-30 differents trails. With in a few hours, the whole sky is overcast , not from clouds, but from CHEMTRAILS, NOT CON TRAIL, CHEMTRAILS.
      WHEN I USED TO SATCH THEM AS KID, you would see them disappear, these don’t.

  • Nancy

    Is there any updates on this? I’ve read about it on several websites but haven’t seen anything about the outcome. Have they passed anything yet? I wish my state had a skywatch website. I am so sick of seeing this daily. Not to mention I am tired of hearing it too. The jets, small planes and even helicopters. We were not in a flight path before and now all this noise. Very few days of sun since Nov 1st. If we do get sun it is gone is a few hours. We have never had such a dark gloomy winter as this one. It’s nothing to see 7 at a time spraying trails and making X’s. Wake up people! They are destroying this beautiful earth!

    • Wake Up World

      Hi Nancy, we are trying to find an update on this as well. We will post anything that we find.

      • Bonnie

        its now april 2012 here in Maui Hawaii we are trying to pass an initiative to ban the spraying in the skies without an environmental impact survey first .. please up date your info asap
