German Meteorologist States Illegal Weather-Modification Chemtrails Are Real, Files UN Sanctioned Lawsuit Against Germany Military

 So will everyone just accept this now? Please read comment below, also. Here’s the link to the original article.

Sue Ellison, spokeswoman for Porton Down, said: ‘Independent reports by eminent scientists have shown there was no danger to public health from these releases which were carried out to protect the public.

‘The results from these trials_ will save lives, should the country or our forces face an attack by chemical and biological weapons.’

Asked whether such tests are still being carried out, she said: ‘It is not our policy to discuss ongoing research.’

    Millions were in germ war tests

    Much of Britain was exposed to bacteria sprayed in secret trials

    Antony Barnett, public affairs editor
    Observer

    Sunday April 21, 2002

    The Ministry of Defence turned large parts of the country into a giant laboratory to conduct a series of secret germ warfare tests on the public.

    A government report just released provides for the first time a comprehensive official history of Britain’s biological weapons trials between 1940 and 1979.

    Many of these tests involved releasing potentially dangerous chemicals and micro-organisms over vast swaths of the population without the public being told.

    While details of some secret trials have emerged in recent years, the 60-page report reveals new information about more than 100 covert experiments.

    The report reveals that military personnel were briefed to tell any ‘inquisitive inquirer’ the trials were part of research projects into weather and air pollution.

    The tests, carried out by government scientists at Porton Down, were designed to help the MoD assess Britain’s vulnerability if the Russians were to have released clouds of deadly germs over the country.

    In most cases, the trials did not use biological weapons but alternatives which scientists believed would mimic germ warfare and which the MoD claimed were harmless. But families in certain areas of the country who have children with birth defects are demanding a public inquiry.

    One chapter of the report, ‘The Fluorescent Particle Trials’, reveals how between 1955 and 1963 planes flew from north-east England to the tip of Cornwall along the south and west coasts, dropping huge amounts of zinc cadmium sulphide on the population. The chemical drifted miles inland, its fluorescence allowing the spread to be monitored. In another trial using zinc cadmium sulphide, a generator was towed along a road near Frome in Somerset where it spewed the chemical for an hour.

    While the Government has insisted the chemical is safe, cadmium is recognised as a cause of lung cancer and during the Second World War was considered by the Allies as a chemical weapon.

    In another chapter, ‘Large Area Coverage Trials’, the MoD describes how between 1961 and 1968 more than a million people along the south coast of England, from Torquay to the New Forest, were exposed to bacteria including e.coli and bacillus globigii , which mimics anthrax. These releases came from a military ship, the Icewhale, anchored off the Dorset coast, which sprayed the micro-organisms in a five to 10-mile radius.

    The report also reveals details of the DICE trials in south Dorset between 1971 and 1975. These involved US and UK military scientists spraying into the air massive quantities of serratia marcescens bacteria, with an anthrax simulant and phenol.

    Similar bacteria were released in ‘The Sabotage Trials’ between 1952 and 1964. These were tests to determine the vulnerability of large government buildings and public transport to attack. In 1956 bacteria were released on the London Underground at lunchtime along the Northern Line between Colliers Wood and Tooting Broadway. The results show that the organism dispersed about 10 miles. Similar tests were conducted in tunnels running under government buildings in Whitehall.

    Experiments conducted between 1964 and 1973 involved attaching germs to the threads of spiders’ webs in boxes to test how the germs would survive in different environments. These tests were carried out in a dozen locations across the country, including London’s West End, Southampton and Swindon. The report also gives details of more than a dozen smaller field trials between 1968 and 1977.

    In recent years, the MoD has commissioned two scientists to review the safety of these tests. Both reported that there was no risk to public health, although one suggested the elderly or people suffering from breathing illnesses may have been seriously harmed if they inhaled sufficient quantities of micro-organisms.

    However, some families in areas which bore the brunt of the secret tests are convinced the experiments have led to their children suffering birth defects, physical handicaps and learning difficulties.

    David Orman, an army officer from Bournemouth, is demanding a public inquiry. His wife, Janette, was born in East Lulworth in Dorset, close to where many of the trials took place. She had a miscarriage, then gave birth to a son with cerebral palsy. Janette’s three sisters, also born in the village while the tests were being carried out, have also given birth to children with unexplained problems, as have a number of their neighbours.

    The local health authority has denied there is a cluster, but Orman believes otherwise. He said: ‘I am convinced something terrible has happened. The village was a close-knit community and to have so many birth defects over such a short space of time has to be more than coincidence.’

    Successive governments have tried to keep details of the germ warfare tests secret. While reports of a number of the trials have emerged over the years through the Public Records Office, this latest MoD document – which was released to Liberal Democrat MP Norman Baker – gives the fullest official version of the biological warfare trials yet.

    Baker said: ‘I welcome the fact that the Government has finally released this information, but question why it has taken so long. It is unacceptable that the public were treated as guinea pigs without their knowledge, and I want to be sure that the Ministry of Defence’s claims that these chemicals and bacteria used were safe is true.’

    The MoD report traces the history of the UK’s research into germ warfare since the Second World War when Porton Down produced five million cattle cakes filled with deadly anthrax spores which would have been dropped in Germany to kill their livestock. It also gives details of the infamous anthrax experiments on Gruinard on the Scottish coast which left the island so contaminated it could not be inhabited until the late 1980s.

    The report also confirms the use of anthrax and other deadly germs on tests aboard ships in the Caribbean and off the Scottish coast during the 1950s. The document states: ‘Tacit approval for simulant trials where the public might be exposed was strongly influenced by defence security considerations aimed obviously at restricting public knowledge. An important corollary to this was the need to avoid public alarm and disquiet about the vulnerability of the civil population to BW [biological warfare] attack.’

    Sue Ellison, spokeswoman for Porton Down, said: ‘Independent reports by eminent scientists have shown there was no danger to public health from these releases which were carried out to protect the public.

    ‘The results from these trials_ will save lives, should the country or our forces face an attack by chemical and biological weapons.’

    Asked whether such tests are still being carried out, she said: ‘It is not our policy to discuss ongoing research.’

    Sue Ellison (spokesperson for Porton Down) obviously had a memory lapse on the day she stated – ‘Independent reports by eminent scientists have shown there was no danger to public health from these releases…’

    Somehow she seems to have forgotten to mention that the 1999 MOD commisioned independent review (conducted by Prof Brian Spratt FRS), found that the massive aerosols of E.coli MRE (disseminated over populated areas of southern England by Porton scientists) might have caused both chest infections and diseases of the blood in vulnerable individuals!

    For a more detailed historical background to Antony Barnett’s Observer article (see above), check out the following two UK documentaries, which broadcast information about newly discovered Porton Down public area experiments.
    Entitled ‘Top Secrets Revealed’, two 23 minute episodes were broadcast during late 2004. They are both available for viewing/download on GoogleVideo.

    The first episode covers the years 1950-1963, and contains details of formerly classified public area BW experiments such as:

    The Westwood Trials – Following the successful BW ‘sabotage’ attack on the Pentagon, by operatives from the Special Operation Division of Camp Detrick, the scientists from the UK Biological Warfare research facility at Porton Down decided to conduct similar experiments of their own. Unfortunately for them, they were refused permission to use Government buildings in Whitehall, London and so they were forced to use the highly classified underground British Museum Art Repository in Westwood Quarry, Wiltshire. During 1950-1951, scientists released large aerosols of an opportunistic pathogen in the British Museum part of the underground quarry- live Serratia marcescens (the same bacteria which was used in the 1950 San Francisco experiments, and which are associated with a fatality of a hospital patient). Unfortunately, these large bacterial aerosols escaped from the BM Repository and entered the underground factory next door. This factory was occupied at the time by over 200 workers! Needless to say, Porton scientists did not warn the factory workers of the risks – neither did they monitor the workers health in case of a Serratia outbreak!

    The Railway Coach Trials – Yet another series of ‘sabotage’ experiments. This time the purpose was to investigate the feasibility of sabotage attacks on railway trains as they travelled through a tunnel. During these experiments, Porton scientists contaminated regular trains carrying members of the public, as they passed through a tunnel on the Salisbury-Exeter line in the mid-fifties. The trials procedure was for a scientist to hide in a tunnell, equipped with a portable spraying apparatus. Just as the train passed, he operated the spray unit. Trials results proved the contamination of the interior of the train carriages. The passengers were not informed of their participation!

    The BW ‘Attacks’ on the City of Salisbury – During 1960, an aircraft, flying an arc 40 miles upwind of Porton’s nearby city of Salisbury, sprayed large quantities of a cadmium compound – Zinc Cadmium sulphide (ZnCds). This compound was carried by the wind onto the city and was inhaled and digested by the population. Documents obtained by myself in 2001 revealed that although Porton were aware of the hazardous nature of ZnCds they never subjected it to toxicity tests prior to its release in populated areas. The population were never informed – even the Independent Review of 2000 didn’t include the Salisbury experiments!

    The Lyme Bay Trials (aka the Dorset Defence Trials)-
    Episode 1 contains details of the Lyme Bay Trials. This groundbreaking series of experiments involved the spraying, by a ship, of massive amounts of two types of live bacteria. E.coli MRE162 (isolated from a Porton toilet seat in 1949) and spores of Bacillus subtilis aka Bacillus globigii or BG). The huge bacterial clouds were carried onshore by the wind, and were sampled up to 50 miles inland by mobile teams of Porton scientists. The Lyme Bay experiments were repeatedly conducted between 1963-1975. [b]Between 1963-1968, 38 separate massive-release BW experiments were conducted in Lyme Bay and the surrounding area. During the period 1963-1975, this number increased to over 80 experiments!

    Episode 2 contains the following information:

    The Icing Tanker Aircraft – This was a classic piece of dual-use technology. On the surface this especially converted aircraft was just a research vehicle, constructed to facilitate investigations into aircraft icing. But it had another, highly classified role – as the UK’s BW spray aircraft. Experiments using this aircraft were conducted in populated areas on numerous occasions during 1967. As before, two types of live bacteria were released – E.coli MRE162, and Bacillus subtilis.

    Interview with Professor Brian Spratt FRS – Prof Spratt was commissioned, in 1998, by the UK Ministry of Defence to investigate whether those residents who were exposed to the massive bacterial clouds suffered any adverse health effects. Prof Spratt reveals that while most people would probably have not suffered ill effects, some people, especially those with an underlying disease or suppressed immune system might have experienced pneumonia or sepsis. He also revealed that on four separate occasions, Porton scientists knowingly sprayed a contaminated bacterial suspension over a populated area!

    As is this were not enough, during the interview Prof Spratt became aware that the MOD have not been as honest with him as he had thought. They had ‘forgotten’ to inform him of the six ‘massive’ crosswind line releases of live bacteria, which were conducted in 1968. Even worse, declassified documents revealed that these experiments were not conducted for any research purposes – they were instead carried out purely to show off Porton’s dubious abilities to the UK Military!

    The 1971 Collaborative UK/US BW Detection Trials –

    During November 1971, Lyme Bay and the surrounding countryside again became the host for Porton’s BW experiments, but this time there was a difference – Porton had invited two guests to participate in the tests; the US Army and the US Navy! As before, these experiments were highly classified, but in case the general public had discovered their existence, the MOD had prepared a Press Release which stated that no live bacteria were released. The declassification of the official trials report proved this statement to have been untrue – the report states that, on a number of occasions, massive amounts of live bacteria (Bacillus subtilis) were released.

    1975 Joint UK/US BW Detection Trials (DICE Trials) – Little is known about this series of BW detection experiments, which were conducted in the Lyme Bay area. It is known that Porton scientists, in collaboration with US Military scientists, conducted 24 separate massive crosswind line releases of bacteria (Inactivated Serratia marcescens – ISM, and live Bacillus subtilis).

    Yet again, as the interview shows, the Ministry of Defence appear to have ‘forgotten’ to inform Prof Spratt about the existence of a series of live bacterial releases in populated areas!

    The 2001 Royal Mail Sorting Office Experiments – In response to the 2001 anthrax ‘attacks’ in the US, BW experiments were conducted at 3 major UK Royal Mail Sorting Offices which involved the release of live Bacillus subtilis.
