In the background of modern life, as people go on debating politics and working for a living, something dreadful is happening to the eco-systems which support us. Major disasters like the ongoing radioactive leak at Fukushima, the apocalyptic fires burning throughout Indonesia, even bee colony collapse disorder, seem to fall out of view in day-to-day life, as we seem to have lost our power and will to directly participate in the stewardship of planet earth.
A new crisis is now happening all around us affecting trees. It appears that millions, hundreds of millions even, of trees are dying in North America and around the world from a basket of reasons, promising to completely and permanently alter the landscape and environment around us.
Tree are among the most abundant and the most critical organisms on planet earth, and only recently have we been able to assess just how many trees inhabit planet earth. A study published in 2015 gave us this picture:
“A new study published in Nature estimates the planet has 3.04 trillion trees. The research says 15.3 billion trees are chopped down every year. It also estimates that 46% of the world’s trees have been cleared over the past 12,000 years.” [Source]
Now in 2016, alarm bells are ringing and in California alone, the problem has become incredibly severe:
“The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced today that the U.S. Forest Service has identified an additional 36 million dead trees across California since its last aerial survey in May 2016. This brings the total number of dead trees since 2010 to over 102 million on 7.7 million acres of California’s drought stricken forests. In 2016 alone, 62 million trees have died, representing more than a 100 percent increase in dead trees across the state from 2015. Millions of additional trees are weakened and expected to die in the coming months and years.” [Source]
A New York Times feature on trees in California warns us that many of the state’s trees were already dead before forest fires moved in, thereby making the fire situation worse.
Many of the tree deaths in Northern California have been linked to Sudden Oak Death in addition to an ongoing drought, but, the tragic die-off of trees is far from limited to California. In 2010, Hawaii’s well ohi’a trees began to die on the Big Island due to a disease now referred to as ohi’a disease, and scientists still don’t understand its origins or how to treat it. These are just a few examples of many in a wave of issues killing trees in many parts of America and around the world.
‘The plight of the ohi’a is not unique – it’s part of a quiet crisis playing out in forests across America. Drought, disease, insects and wildfire are chewing up tens of millions of trees at an incredible pace, much of it driven by climate change.” [Source]
Entire mountainsides are dying off in short order, leaving a bleak future for wildlife and residents. Some speculate that the widespread loss of trees due to such a wide conflagration of issues is a sign that trees, the most rugged of all plants, are in general weakened from an environment under complex attack by pollution and even climate engineering projects.
“In California and in other parts of the world, many are making the connection between climate engineering these tree die-offs. Also known as geoengineering, this is the modification of the earth’s atmosphere with the supplementation of compounds and chemicals, ostensibly as a means of favorably influencing the climate.” [Source]
Could be, although there is nothing like a consensus on the issue of why trees are in such a weakened state that so many are succumbing to so many issues.

A Planet Out of Balance
“Natural ecosystems have been altered in various ways by nitrogen, sulfur, and mercury deposited in rain, snow, or as gases and particles in the atmosphere. Through decades of scientific research, scientists have documented how local, regional, and global sources of air pollution can produce profound changes in ecosystems. These changes include acidification of soils and surface waters, harmful algal blooms and low oxygen conditions in estuaries, reduced diversity of native plants, high levels of mercury in fish and other wildlife, and decreased tolerance to other stresses, such as pests, disease, and climate change.” – Issues in Ecology, Fall 2011 Edition – “Setting Limits – Using Air Pollution Thresholds to Protect and Restore U.S. Ecosystems”
The web of life cannot be damaged in one area without the effects being felt elsewhere. Just as bees and other insects are dying off en masse by a number of causes, some known and unknown, trees are also harbingers of the health of our planet. With such little attention given to the state of this earth and so much attention given to the human and political dramas that occupy our attention 24/7, will the human race wake up and react in time to avert a major planetary crisis?

Readers of the alt press probably realize that censorship goes on either blatantly or surreptitiously, especially when it comes to specific topics like vaccines, politics, and weather geoengineering - aka 'chemtrails'
One of the most sophisticated independent science researchers in the field of geophysics is known as 'Dutchsinse,' who accurately predicts earthquakes in regions of the globe, along with uncanny accuracy intensity, one to two days in advance of their occurrence. He’s been doing that and broadcasting the information over his YouTube channel for several years now, much to the dismay of the powers that be who run YouTube and possibly federal government agencies involved in weather management. He explains his experiences in being contacted with them in the video below.
His channel has been taken down several times, but the most recent one-August 30, 2016-seems to have been designed to be ‘nuclear’, i.e., deleting all his information and data, along with assigning his site a brand new URL address. Chutzpah? No, censorship!
Dutchsinse’s most likely ‘mortal sin’ that he’s committed is that he’s been able to find and describe HAARP rings created by Solar Radiation Management microwaves sent into the atmosphere that, in turn, create 'plasma' energy that can be moved around to create weather.
Furthermore, Dutchsinse talks about the ability of radar stations and what they are ‘programmed’ to do: produce weather within two hundred miles of their base, including tornadoes? If you want to know what’s going on with the weather, he suggests checking out local radar stations in your region.
At 13 minutes on the timeline of Dutchsinse’s ‘melt-down’ video explaining the apparent censorship that’s taken down his site for the third time, he talks about microwaves and their implications in weather engineering and control. At 36 minutes he talks about his science research regarding HAARP. He also explains that storms can be made to intensify or vaporize. Hear that California?
Interestingly, he claims that his research and ingenuity allowed him to ‘invent’ what’s been called a 'paper thin battery' by his combining carbon, toner ink and aluminum (or placing them next to each other), which I don’t understand how that works, but for which others have taken scientific credit. Is that what’s in 'chemtrails' to make the man-made clouds move where they want them?
Because of Dutchsinse’s apparent ability to figure out what’s going on in ‘occult weather science’ aka weather geoengineering, he claims that Homeland Security has listed him as a threat, including all of his viewers too. How utterly bizarre! Furthermore, ‘Dutch’ advises everyone to research weather engineering and projects performed by the U.S. military and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
Now, here’s what I think needs to be questioned in view of all the horrendous weather patterns that have been going on since the turn of the 21st century (the year 2000):
Unprecedented five-year-long drought in California, the premiere fresh food/vegetable and produce-growing region in the United States;
Devastating forest fires resulting from desiccated trees and foliage/bark stresses from lack of rainfall, plus electromagnetic pulse energies from cell and mast towers;
Catastrophic floods, the most recent occurring in Louisiana, a region horribly devastated by Hurricane Katrina August 29, 2005
MILLIONS of people are convinced a secret global conspiracy is taking place in front of our eyes on a DAILY basis.

The Chemtrails conspiracy theory is one of the most supported on Earth and counted the late pop legend Prince among its high-profile advocates.At its most bizarre extreme, conspiracy theorists believe that the contrails which form behind jet aircraft are actually streams of toxic “mind-control” chemicals, which dilute before they reach the ground, leaving a gas we breathe in that keeps the general population in check.But there are a growing number of chemtrail believers, who claim the conspiracy is actually a secret global plot to change Earth’s climate in the hope it will reverse the effects of climate change.Even former politicians in the UK are beginning to express concerns.

Dane Wigington, a solar energy expert and former employee of Bechtel Power Corp, now runs GeoengineeringWatch.org, a website set up to expose the “harmful” conspiracy which has had more than 22.3 million visitors.He investigated why solar panels at his home lost power as aircraft contrails formed in the sky.According to Mr. Wigington, the contrails, or chemtrails, we see forming behind aircraft most days are carrying out geoengineering.An introduction to the subject on his website states: “It sounds like science fiction, but it’s not. It’s happening right above you.”He said a system called “Solar Radiation Management” (SRM) was being used whereby scientists have tried to mimic the effects of a major volcanic eruption on temperature.
During an eruption, the sulphurous ash clouds would block out sunlight, cooling the Earth.He said: “Their concept is to mimic the dimming and cooling effects of a volcanic eruption and existing particulate pollution made by human activity.“However, it has been out of the proposal stage for quite some time, and even though officials will not admit it, SRM is already in full-scale operation.”Many people believe it is easy to spot when chemtrailing is taking place.John Dornan is a former borough and county councillor in Essex who has recently discovered the theory.He said: “I knew nothing about this, but then normal everyday people started mentioning it and talked about it so matter of factly as if everyone knew.

“Then I saw what happened. There is a clear blue sky, then the planes come and the trails criss-cross over each other, until they spread out into long clouds. After that the sunlight dims.”He visited the Geoengineering Watch website and is convinced the theory could be true and something needs to be done, but is concerned by how people will react to anyone saying they believe.He said: “Your eyes can’t lie. It is happening everyday and the evidence is on this website.”Mr Wigington claims the “chemtrails” are made up of precursor sulphide gases such as hydrogen sulphide (H2S) or sulphur dioxide (SO2), to artificially reflect the sun’s rays and limit global warming.

But he claims it comes at a price.He said: “Chemtrailing is the public’s term for the classified ongoing artificial modification of Earth’s climate systems, using aerosols to reflect sunlight.”“The aerosols are dispersed via jet aircraft trails that expand into reflective artificial clouds.”“Geoengineering programs are radically disrupting weather patterns, disrupting the hydrological cycle (causing drought in some areas, flooding others), destroying the ozone layer, and contaminating the entire planet with the toxic fallout from these atmospheric spraying operations.”“Climate engineering programs have been fully deployed for many years. There is a mountain of hard science data and film footage to back up this statement of fact.”
“All available data indicates that the ongoing global geoengineering programs are mathematically the greatest single assault against the web of life ever launched by the human race.”“To interfere with Earth’s life support systems is insanity beyond comprehension and this is exactly what the completely out of control military industrial complex has done.”“There are no regulations on these atmospheric spraying programs, and no oversight whatsoever. We are all currently being subjected to these ongoing tests.”
