A researched analysis by Clyde Lewis

Ground Zero reports on past information and new information that confirms that there is more evidence to implicate either the Government or some other organization in the spraying of the American people.

Contrary to various websites the Contrail controversy has reached its peak. It has literally eased up. Yet there are some people that continue to post pictures of normal trails without even thinking. The hysteria that exists can be a liability to the research. Posting picture after picture seems to be a hobby for over zealous sky watchers who want to "cash" in on the undercurrent, and bring people to their various websites that are bannered with vitamin offers.

I donít mean to paint sky watchers with one brush but I can attribute all of the various websites to the alarm that was sounded by people like William Thomas and other researchers who fell under the ridicule of several doubters and shameless debunkers.

Once the research was posted there were several "besting" matches that were had with many people quoting the obvious about the trails. As if researchers were too stupid to figure out that a plane flying at 33,000 feet or higher creates an ice and water condensation trail or Contrail.

Contrail researchers, chemtrail photographers, Bio apocalypse nutcases, just a few of the terms that the mainstream press levied unfairly against the underground media when they attempted to fight their way out of the nebulous fog that seemed to hover over the clear skies of the United States in latter 1990ís.

These clouds according to researchers were causing people to get sick and alarmed environmentalists who wanted to expose the organization responsible for polluting the air with toxins that were triggering asthmatic conditions, diarrhea, nausea, dizziness, and skin rashes.

It was determined that these clouds were being dropped by planes in grid patterns over the United States and that perhaps the Government was responsible. The skeptics and even retired Military were constantly generating the same rhetoric, that the trails were normal.

This was acknowledged by the researchers, however the contrail hysteria snowballed into photographers taking pictures of every Contrail or a line of cirrus and stratus clouds that appeared in the skies over major metropolitan areas.

None bothered to do research, and many websites were erected to capitalize on the new hysteria.

This prompted many researchers in the field to demand that a new terminology be devised in order to differentiate between the normal Contrails and the bio-fogs left behind that would damage the fauna and flora and cause irreversible effects on human beings.

The word Chemtrail was developed.

From 1998 to the present there have been many news stories that have been reported that circumstantially indicate a random chemical spraying on the populace.

If you doubt that this is a possibility it needs to be pointed out that this type of activity is nothing new and that the United States has a rich history of secretly testing potentially dangerous chemicals on itís people.

Private firms and the military have used human populations to test various theories and use these tests to prepare for impending attacks. Their documentation is released at a much later time when the effects are analyzed properly and that no dangers can be detected.

In the meantime we the people watch, wait and wonder why we are getting sicker and sicker. We wonder why we see commercials on Television advertising the latest drugs that will help us get erections, eliminate acid buildups in our stomachs, help us sleep, cure anxiety, and ease the pain of vascular headaches, and pulmonary diseases and allergies.

All of these problems are being reported in record numbers to hospitals and primary care providers. Some of these problems are being left untreated or are being misdiagnosed, resulting in the deaths of many people.

In 1977 there was a mountain of information that was declassified regarding the U.S. Biological weapons programs that included the unknown testing of Bio Chemicals on the People of the United States.

Some of these reports showed that citizens were sprayed with various chemicals resulting in dementia, miscarriages, impotence, headaches, neuralgia, Herpes Zoster, nausea, irritable bowel syndrome, birth defects and low grade fevers.

In some twisted coincidence there has been a great deal of money going into the advertising of drugs that allegedly alleviate these very same problems in the year 2000. From Prilosec to Viagra , to specially modified over the counter medications for Migraine.

These drugs are becoming more sophisticated for people who are not getting relief. I have even witnessed an advertisement for a new drug to treat Herpes flare-ups.

On March 18 1999 a mystery smell was detected by the department of air quality in Salt Lake City Utah.

Businesses including the Delta Center and the University of Utah were evacuated. Speculation as to what may have caused the sulfuric smell in the city was attributed to industrial waste releases to possible tectonic bursts from the Wasatch fault.

There was nothing conclusive. This mystery cloud arrived hot on the heels of William Thomasí investigations into the possibilities that planes were dropping chemicals on an unsuspecting populace. The trails, it was believed were causing people to get sick.

The Contrail hysteria was born as people in Washington State were having bouts with all kinds of terrible maladies that lasted for 6 months to year despite doctors attempts to cure the problems with courses of five different antibiotics.

People claimed that on many occasions they had spotted a plane with no markings dropping these trails in X or grid patterns and then later contracting these strange illnesses that doctors just couldnít beat.

This initiated responses from the population that were in the throes of the flu season to jump up and take notice. This unfortunately may have tainted the research and then a strange coincidence took place.

The Roche Pharmaceutical company began running commercials asking the American people if they could please contact them using a Toll free number describing their flu symptoms and if they are noticing anything different about their sickness.

The number to call was 1-800-I GOT FLU. The number would ask if you would like to participate in a Q and A and if you wanted to try a new drug called oseltamivir phosphate or Tamifluô.

This got the Contrail Theorists asking many questions.

One question in particular was whether or not simulants were being dropped to test their effectiveness and how long a typical strain of influenza would travel from point "A" to Point "B." However new claims were stating that this Flu was no Flu and that people were sick and eventually dying of something else.

Letter after letter was being written making claim after claim and yet no reports were made by the Centers for Disease Control. Here is a typical letter that seemed to be a little over blown but I am printing it for reference because it looked more like it was written by someone who knew just what to write instead of John Doe or Jane Doe writing about how they feel:


I have been ill and I am still not feeling very well at all. I made a big mistake and let my immune system stress due to all the deadlines I am attempting to meet right now. I am taking my supplements, drinking all the things I know to drink, soaking in epsom salts and I am told to soak in lemon.

Once it gets inside you it is a little difficult to get it to let go. The only thing I can figure is that it went for a weaker part of my body, my lungs. The coughing really hurts and sometimes the throat is so bad that when you cough it is unbearable. I am not complaining.

I am writing this to you so that you will NOT allow this to happen to you. This has definitely been caused by the spray we all are breathing. We are having an epidemic RIGHT now, and for those of you that have been checking out the skies for years like I have you must know how grateful I am that Will Thomas has spoken on the Art Bell show again.

If you did not hear his show, I'll place a link at the end of this mail. Fast forward all the commercials and listen. I don't feel that Art Bell allowed him to talk enough, so be it. Simply an ego that should be dealt with. Most have been humbled. I have friends that work in hospitals in Boca Raton. Their hospitals are still full.

The patients cough continuously. The symptoms resemble, very much, the symptoms of a pseudomonad. The doctors told the nurses there had been a typhoid outbreak. The symptoms are not that of typhoid. Do not allow this stuff to get hold of you. There is too much to be done. We must support Will Thomas now, make it as public as possible, play the tape for as many as possible. We are under biological attack and have been for a long time. I hate to say "I told you soóbut I told you so".

Now if at all possible, send 10 dollars, etc. , or buy one or two of his books so that Will may chase these rats down. That's a small price to pay for clean, fresh air. They will continue to spray until we make them stop! We cannot do anything without our health and THEY know that! Please send whatever you can, he is fighting for YOU! Show your appreciation.

I know everyone has a limited amount of money, but you won't have any to support your families with if you ARE dead. This is no bull! If you listen to the tape you will hear that many of the people calling in ALREADY had family members, or pets die.

Does it need to happen to you personally before you realize what needs to be done. We ARE making headway and God is on our side, so do something and do something NOW!!! I am pasting an article written while I was pretty ill so forgive me if it is not perfect. Read and know that this is bad stuff and must be dealt with now.

We are 99% sure this is the bacteria, or part of a system in the spray. The following article includes research on an incredibly hearty pathogen known as Pseudomonas Aeruginosa. Please make your own decision. This author thinks this bug or at least another strain of this bug may certainly "fit the bill". PA and other nasty little BUGS!!!

Pseudomonas aeruginosa A hearty bacteria, gram negative, aerobic, and very diverse known as pseudomonas aeruginosa may be a culprit, and a significant player in a compound of jet fuel, ethylene dibromide, and pseudomonas aeruginosa. Symptoms expressed by many people around the country could quite easily be caused by the above.

Many years ago researchers investigated working with four strains of the bacteria pseudomonas. Each strain had the capacity to break down a component of fuel oil. The researchers were attempting to genetically alter the bacteria into a SUPERBUG. This SUPERBUG made into a powdered form could be used to clean oil spills.

There are 24 strains of pseudomonas. We will speak mainly regarding the aeruginosa strain due to the facts and symptoms made public by those that are ill. Before discussing the aeruginosa strain we must discuss two additional strains. These two additional strains are known BIOLOGICAL agents. Pseudomonas Mallei and Malleomyces Pseudomallei are two of the organisms that are known to be used as biological agents.

Pseudomonas Mallei is a non-motile, non-sporulating, gram-negative, aerobic, slender, rod-shaped bacterium. Transmission is normally made by inhalation or breaks in the skin. The gastrointestinal tract is sometimes a mode of transmission. This bacterium is quite resistant to anti-microbial agents. Malleomyces Pseudomallei is a motile, gram-negative, non-sporulating, aerobic, small rod-shaped bacteria.

Approximate size of this bacteria is 1 to 2 microns long and 0.5 microns wide. The two closely resemble each other. Mode of transmission is spread by droplet infection and this strain is also quite resistant to anti-microbial agents.

Listed below are infections caused by pseudomonas aeruginosa: Endocarditis Pulmonary infections Tracheobronchitis Necrotizing bronchopneumonia Ear infections Chronic external otitis Malignant external otitis Chronic otitis media Burn wound infections Urinary tract infections Gastroenteritis Eye infections Musculoskeletal infections Bacteremia Synovial cavities Paranasal sinuses How familiar do some of these symptoms sound to you?

There have been numerous reports of ear infections, lung problems, and urinary tract infections. Pseudomonads are opportunistic pathogens and are present in a variety of environmental habitats. These organisms have minimal nutritional requirements and may proliferate in jet fuel. The fuel would actually act as a food. Pseudomonads can tolerate a wide range of temperatures.

This bacteria is very detrimental to weakened individuals or those that have compromised immune systems. Could it be possible that the jet fuel in combination with ethylene dibromide would cause an initial agitation of the immune system resulting in sinus infections, etc?

This opportunistic pathogen would then cause a host of other problems as a secondary infection. Now to complicate the situation even further, weather control, or let us give the non-believers the benefit of doubt. Rain. Yes, it does rain quite a bit sometimes after areas have been sprayed. This tasty little treat survives very well in a wet or humid environment. Perhaps one of the reasons that urinary tract infections are so popular, however there is plenty of water in the body to move "things" right along also. Burn patients are very susceptible to infections caused by pseudomonas aeruginosa. Vascular damage, tissue necrosis, and bacteremia are common. Certain types of bacteria may cause protein to break down.

Protein breaks down and the result is ammonia. Many people that have noticed the planes in the sky have noticed an ammonia-like scent from their urine. Pulmonary infections are on the rise. There are many people who never had lung problems before. These people are having problems breathing and have persistent coughs which will not stop. There have been deaths. Remember pseudomonas aeruginosa is aerobic, therefore a suitable place for this organism would be the lungs. Ear infections resistant to antibiotics and an even more deadly form may invade tissue and become life threatening.

So we have a society bent on taking antibiotics for infections and an organism that is antibiotic resistant. Not only is pseudomonas aeruginosa antibiotic resistant but when a secondary infection is involved the antibiotic causes that infection to become that much more fatal. Meningitis is a good example.

There is also evidence that growth of the organism is encouraged by penicillin. Often a fever and general feeling of weakness or no energy is experienced after a person has been in an area where they may have been exposed. Musculoskeletal infections----could this be the reason for the increase in the complaints of a condition known as Fibromyalgia. Protease has been described with this organism. Protease promotes tissue destruction and inactivation of antibodies.

Vegetation, animals, and humans are ALL susceptible to infection by these nasty little pathogens. Maybe the holes seen in plants/vegetation are a result of invasion by pseudomonads. Years ago the American Society of Microbiologists published an article written by a microbiologists in the field. The microbiologist had noticed a stringy, web-type material hanging in different places. What was this material? Another strain of pseudomonas. The strain? Stutzeri. This strain could very well polymerize when sprayed giving it a chain-like or spider web appearance. The symptoms are obvious and the organisms are more than likely quite available.

I did forget to mention one little thing--------------years ago facilities were BUILT to manufacture these little BUGS.............. initially they said, for the oil spills. Who built the facilities? You guessed it!!! You did. You and your tax dollars."

A lot of writing for someone who is really sick and if I were that sick I sure wouldnít be up at all hours listening to Art Bell.

This was probably the reason why several magazines and websites began a backlash to the Contrail hysteria. I was having my doubts about the whole cavalcade of information that was coming in.

As a researcher you need to understand that speculation and hysteria always find their way into early research and that a certain amount of HEALTHY skepticism needs to be applied when dealing with things like this.

But then, I accidentally had a dose of reality.

After the March 1999 report of a sulfur cloud over Salt Lake City I too became ill. I just happened to be one of the fortunate to live near the area where the sulfuric cloud was doing the damage and both my roommate and I suffered from a number of problems. He was having heart palpitations, fever, and a hacking dry cough. In fact he actually thought he was having a heart attack and had to take a leave of absence from his job as a police officer.

My condition began as a burning in the back of my throat. A metallic taste lingered in my mouth and I could not tolerate salt. It developed into a throaty dry cough and then my lungs went into shock. I was rushed to the hospital after I went into a coughing and wheezing fit.

I was put in ICU and was kept on Oxygen for 6 hours. I had isotope tests done on my respiratory system and the doctors were thinking that I inhaled some substance into my lungs. They prescribed narcotics to calm the cough, and other drugs to loosen mucus. I was also given an inhaler.

For 6 weeks I was coughing and eventually I lost my voice. It was difficult to do my show in that time frame and I was thinking about quitting it entirely.

I called the Utah air quality people and asked if they had any idea what it was that was released into the air. They kept giving me the run-around and of course there was the news report saying that whatever it was, it seemed harmless enough. So I thought of course that it was all in my head. That was until I was talking with William Thomas. The sickness that I was having was causing some very strange things to happen to me. I was having warm sensations all over my body. My legs would swell up causing capillaries to burst. The doctors said that I must have had some lymph damage and asked me if I had cancer. I told them no.

They were curious as to why my cough was not clearing up. I was given a Z-pak and was sent home. My job was becoming too demanding. I was working 18 hours in a start up Internet company making very little money, getting fatter and sicker.

My friends intervened.

They invited me to go on a trip to Las Vegas and I spent most of my time in my hotel room sleeping.

When I returned I decided I needed to rest.

Ground Zero listeners were asking me if I was tired because they said I sounded tired.

I was tired.

I was obsessing about the Contrails and what had happened, I would be looking up into the sky and wondering what was really going on.

Iíd see the normal trails and thought maybe it was all just a hoax of some kind. Maybe it was all isolated, perhaps a figment of my imagination.

One day while I was waiting for a bus in Salt Lake City I noticed a trail in the sky that looked peculiar. I pointed it out to some friends of mine as it looked like it was being laid down by a plane that I couldnít see.

I looked again and right above the wide trail was a black delta shaped aircraft. It looked like a bat wing plane, but it wasnít flying fast, it was just gliding moving like a box kite. It was partially obscured by the trail cloud and I thought, what better way to hide a black ops aircraft. Then I thought Ė Maybe contrails are really shields, and that they are used to create a cover for exotic aircraft to fly over populated areas.

It inspired me to do some research into several cases and I came up with some continuity in my discoveries. At the same time there were all kinds of stories circulating about improprieties in how the government was handling itís Chemical reserves at the Dugway Proving Grounds.

It was synchronicity that I could be turned on to all kinds of information. The information all seemed to be connected to funds being poured into Chemical weapons, aircraft, testing of simulants, UFOís, Cattle Mutilations, and the linking of key figures like George Bush, the CIA and Drug companies that Bush had been affiliated with in the late 1970ís.

The crowning glory of all was a book called "Clouds of Secrecy" by Leonard A. Cole Ph.D.

Dr. Cole relates in a sworn testimony before the Committee on Veterans' Affairs May 6, 1994 that the army began a program in 1949 to assess the nation's vulnerability to attack with biological weapons.

"During the next 20 years, the army released simulant agents over hundreds of populated areas around the country. Targets included portions of Hawaii and Alaska, San Francisco, St. Louis, Minneapolis, New York City, Washington, D.C., Key West, and many other cities. The purpose was to see how the bacteria spread and survived as people went about their normal activities.

Evidence suggested that the tests may have been causing illness to exposed citizens. Nevertheless, as army spokesmen subsequently testified, the health of the millions of people exposed was never monitored because the army assumed that the bacteria and chemicals were harmless.

Vulnerability testing continues at Dugway Proving Ground, 70 miles from Salt Lake City. Several smaller communities are closer to the base, and Dugway itself is home to hundreds of civilians and military personnel and their families. The stated purpose of the tests is to evaluate biological detector systems and protective gear.

Since tests involve spraying simulants outdoors, it is important to understand how much risk they pose to humans who are exposed. Official statements have not always been dear on this matter. A July 1993 news release by the Dugway Public Affairs Office indicates that "no specific safety controls or protection are required for testing with simulants." The statement implies, erroneously, that the simulants are harmless.

In fact, during 45 years of open air testing, from time to time the army has stopped using certain simulants for reasons of safety. In each instance the army belatedly recognized they could be causing disease and death, although such information had long been available in the medical literature. This was the case in the 1950s when it ceased using the fungus Aspergillus fumigatus as a simulant. The fungus had long been known to cause aspergillosis, a disease that can be fatal.

Similarly, in the 1960s the army stopped using zinc cadmium sulfide, a chemical that had been known for years to cause cancer.

In the 1970s, the bacterium Serratia marcescens, a source of infections that can lead to death, was taken out of service as a simulant. And in the 1980s, dimethyl methylphosphonate, a chemical known as DPP, was removed from use as a simulant because of its carcinogenic and other toxic potential. I understand that one of today's witnesses, Earl Davenport, was exposed to DMMP at Dugway in 1984 and may still be suffering health problems as a result.

Indeed, simulants now used at Dugway continue to pose risks. The chemical ethylene oxide, which is present in some of the mixtures used in outdoor spraying, is a known carcinogen. The bacterium Bacillus subtilis, while not generally seen as dangerous, is cited in medical textbooks as able to cause serious infections. In truth any microorganism that seems harmless under some circumstances may cause illness under others. Exposure to high concentrations of any microorganism can be critically dangerous to people in weakened conditions.

The elderly, the very young, people with AIDS and others who have weakened immune systems are more susceptible to life threatening infections. Nevertheless, the army has not monitored the health of citizens who may have been exposed during its tests while maintaining that its bacterial agents cause no harm.

In addition to people who are unwittingly exposed to the army's bacteria and chemicals, human research subjects may not be receiving appropriate information. A test at Dugway in November 1993, for example, raises important questions in this regard. The test was intended to assess the ability of chemical agents to penetrate protective clothing.

Test subjects wore special outer garments and were then sprayed with chemicals in simulated battle conditions. An army Environmental Assessment before the test indicated that some of the chemicals could be toxic. Yet the consent form that the subjects signed in advance of the test said nothing about any of the chemicals.

Subsequently, two of the test subjects said they were asked to sign another consent form sometime after the test had been completed. The second form described the chemicals. But having the subjects sign a consent form after an experiment, rather than before, makes little ethical sense. The procedure renders meaningless the notion of informed consent.

Finally, several physicians at the University of Utah Medical School in Salt Lake City continue to express concern about the tests at Dugway. They do not feel they have information that would enable them optimally to handle infections and complications that might be caused by the tests. Dugway officials have thus far not satisfied their concerns either about field tests involving simulants or indoor tests with highly pathogenic agents."

After reading this, my mind began to see a pattern between Flying Triangle activity, Black Helicopters, Chemtrails, cattle mutilations, and cases of encounters with these aircraft and their ties to Dugway.

I also feared the worst.

Could we be witnessing some sort of crypto eugenics or genocide program where the weak and elderly were being culled?

All of these stories and case by case investigations I recorded and placed on my website. I also wrote an article for UFO Magazine called "The Secret Eye of the Triangle." To me it broke new ground in the seeking of the truth behind the chemtrail controversy. I concluded that this is quite possibly high eco-crime being committed on a grand scale.

Some organization or perhaps the government was testing chemicals on the people, Something that I understood was against the law.

After a year of being told that I was chasing clouds in the sky a report was filed in the Salt Lake Tribune confirming that simulants once again have been tested over Utah. It was literally a confirmation in the mainstream press that these tests are still happening.

The report indicated that the Federal government has been conducting two different atmospheric studies in Salt Lake City.

According to the article, Salt Lake is the perfect location for such a study because of its complex topography and geographic makeup provide an ideal setting to study how cold night air collects in mountain basins. It is those cold air pools sitting below the warmer air that create a temperature inversion and trap pollutants.

The study was being used to monitor air and particles and how they flow in the atmosphere, their data is allegedly being used to study two different Utah phenomena: weather inversions and the effects they will have on the Olympics in 2002.

One study is part of the Department of Energy's Chemical and Biological National Security program.

Their goal is to develop and improve systems the United States can use to respond to chemical and biological attacks.

The project includes the spraying of a non-toxic, allegedly inert tracer chemical called SULPHUR HEXAFLUORIDE. It is released into the skies above Salt Lake City.

The Department of Defense's Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) is supporting this study and may use information from it for the 2002 Winter Olympics. DTRA, which is responsible for protecting the United States and its allies from weapons of mass destruction, will use the information to assist police, fire and military personnel in the event of an attack involving nuclear, chemical or biological weapons or a large chemical accident. The study will be conducted through much of this month. The knowledge may be useful for security during the 2002 Winter Games, though the upcoming Olympics was not the motivation behind his agency's "piggybacking" on the DOE's atmospheric study.

The authorities are unaware of Military involvement however they welcomed any data that might help minimize the risk of terrorist attacks.

I remember reading case histories of Chemtrails in Australia. The trails were sprayed over Sydney. I also remember being told by skeptical Australian listeners that it just wasnít happening except that a number of news organizations reported that the trails were seen all over the world. Just because one or two Aussies didnít see the trails does not mean they werenít dropped before the Summer Olympics.

It would stand to reason that if Sydney was the host of the Olympic games that it too would be a target for an attack and that tests such as these would have to be conducted.

Monitoring and sensoring equipment is used to track the chemical and this determines wind patterns, temperature and moisture patterns and how air is mixed in lower- and mid-levels of the atmosphere.

Could this have been the mystery cloud that had people wheezing and coughing in March of 1999? Could this have been the reason for Chemtrail testing over areas of the U.S. that are potential targets for Bio terrorism?

This may be a portion of the truth surrounding the Chemtrail controversy. It can be argued that all of this is circumstantial and that the chemicals used were reported to be inert. However the track record of these so-called tests have been documented.

Ground Zero suggests that the heavy spraying in the United States has slowed down since our last investigation. However the piecing together of the purpose of such testing is now the job of the researcher. We cannot allow ourselves to continue to jump at the first sign of a normal contrail.

The emergence of Toxic awareness is nothing new. It has been with us since the beginning of the industrialized age. Sometimes the hobbyist can create a diversion from the real culprit. Itís guaranteed to turn a few heads and unfortunately the heads turn away from the truth.

The next time you question whether or not something isnít right about the overall health of the nation, turn on the Television and see how many commercials are demonstrating drugs that have horrible side effects.

Notice what is being sold to you. Drugs that attempt to cure or supress the symptoms of erectile dysfunction, Migraine headaches (Vascular problems) Upper respiratory dysfunction (Pulmonary and histamine problems) Gastric Reflux diseases, Lactose intolerance (Gastrointestinal problems) Mental and psychological dysfunction, anxiety, sleep disorders, Herpes Zoster (Nervous system)

All problems that are believed to be associated with past Chemical testing from the 1940ís till now.

The evidence is mounting and the coincidences are uncanny.

This is not a conspiracy. It is a crime that is being committed in plain sight. The reason it is going unreported is because most of the businesses including the government has the power and the money to keep us in the fog.

Even if itís a deadly one.
