PLASTIC RAIN IN THE US ROCKIES
This article is one to ponder carefully for a number of reasons, which we'll get to. But the basic story is - surprise surprise! - scientists in the US Rocky Mountains region have been finding microscopic plastic filaments and globules in the rain (say it isn't so!!!), according to this story shared by S.D.:
It's raining plastic: microscopic fibers fall from the sky in Rocky Mountains
What's interesting about the article isn't so much its statement of the obvious - that "there's plastic in that thar rain!" - but how it got there:
Plastic was the furthest thing from Gregory Wetherbee’s mind when he began analyzing rainwater samples collected from the Rocky Mountains. “I guess I expected to see mostly soil and mineral particles,” said the US Geological Survey researcher. Instead, he found multicolored microscopic plastic fibers.
The discovery, published in a recent study (pdf) titled “It is raining plastic”, raises new questions about the amount of plastic waste permeating the air, water, and soil virtually everywhere on Earth.
“I think the most important result that we can share with the American public is that there’s more plastic out there than meets the eye,” said Wetherbee. “It’s in the rain, it’s in the snow. It’s a part of our environment now.”
“My results are purely accidental,” he said, though they are consistent with another recent study that found microplastics in the Pyrenees, suggesting plastic particles could travel with the wind for hundreds, if not thousands, of kilometers. Other studies have turned up microplastics in the deepest reaches of the ocean, in UK lakes and rivers and in US groundwater.
A major contributor is trash, said Sherri Mason, a microplastics researcher and sustainability coordinator at Penn State Behrend. More than 90% of plastic waste is not recycled, and as it slowly degrades it breaks into smaller and smaller pieces. “Plastic fibers also break off your clothes every time you wash them,” Mason said, and plastic particles are byproducts of a variety of industrial processes.
It’s impossible to trace the tiny pieces back to their sources, Mason said, but almost anything that’s made of plastic could be shedding particles into the atmosphere. “And then those particles get incorporated into water droplets when it rains,” she added, then wash into rivers, lakes, bays and oceans and filter into groundwater sources. (Emphasis added)
There you have it: it's all the plastic waste we're producing, which breaks down into small particles, then combines in the atmosphere in water droplets, to fall to earth again in the rain. Case closed, message received: we've got to curb human activity to save the planet. (This is, after all, The Guardian we're dealing with.)
Now, don't get me wrong, I have no difficulty that this is true, but not nearly to the extent that is being carefully alleged here. What disturbs me about the article is its blatant material omission, i.e., the complete absence of any mention of the chemtrail-spraying phenomenon, and this after Bill Gates and Harvard were recently caught "red handed" (pun intended) talking about how to spray stuff into the atmosphere to "dim the sun." For those of us who've been following the geoengineering phenomenon, or for that matter, the strange case of Morgellon's disease and its plastic fibers growing in the lesions of its sufferers, it is this spraying itself, not the normal human activity and use of plastics, that is the real culprit: spray a bunch of gunk into the atmosphere, and it's going to fall to the earth and cause environmental problems.
Which brings me, not to my speculation of the day, but to my rant of the day: until these so-called environmentalists show genuine concern about the geoengineering phenomenon and its environmental effects, then I turn a jaundiced and cynical eye on their so-called concern for the environment. I'm back to the basic proposition: if you are unwilling to acknowledge and discuss the very plans of the "sprayers and spewers" like Mr. Gates and its effects on the environment, then you're simply not to be taken seriously.
Or to put it country simple: it is the geoengineers who are behind the bulk of the problem, not us.
And sadly, in the interim, the plastic rains down on the Colorado Rockies...

6 ways mushrooms can save the world | Paul Stamets
Paul’s a great guy. Unfortunately or not massively funded by DARPA.
Keep in mind the repairs made to the planet after the same monstrous folk who spread the plastic spread ddt all over the planet. In the ’60’s the Chicago area had birds larger than crows. We used to see flocks of parakeets every summer. Lots of other small birds. No Hawks of any kind. No vultures. No eagles. No owls. It was a big deal to see any wingspan over three feet. Once every two or three years (not including zoos). Now twenty thirty a day. I can take you to trees with nests of harriers, red tails, bald eagles, american eagles, all sorts large water birds, and on.
Kinda like the wildlife coming back to Chernobyl? Does any one see a possibility that the WGOE enjoy what they call rewilding by genociding humans in ways that only they can survive?
Another “scientist” with specious bit of concatenation which “explains” why there is
plastic being found everywhere from mountains to sea to air and in human bodies. It’s a proven fact that these plastics are used in the aerosol operations. Twenty solid years of non stop spraying globally. The climate scientists know its happenning, but none have the guts to spill the beans. Above and beyond the devious motives behind these operations, the fact is that they have already created biospheric damage on a huge scale. Irreparable damage. These “science” quackademics, say that by 2100 we could,may might have a problem, when in fact biosphere and climate collapse is banging down the door right now.
Pacific plastic patch, plastic microbial stew, plastic microbes ingesting polymers, plastic tonic freshly bottled from spring water, . . . Yawn, . . . For decades now, some of the fringe folks still around have warned about degradable polymers entering the food chain as well as general environment as this pollutant does not respect borders or no-breach-red-lines. It’s good to know that now some folks, new to the world of science and environment, apparently, have had their EUREKA! moment of discovery. Excellent! At least one less ignoramus with knowledge of degradable polymers.
Now, what to do about cleaning up the environment, reducing the use of plastics, encouraging stricter collection and recycling of the plastics by facilitating the means to round this tonnage up. While doing so, furthering similar processes with other used materials from manufacturing.
Rumor has it that if one gets a Rx of polymer solvent like thinner to unclog the veins and arteries because they have become PVC micro-pipes at the capillary level one has crossed the trans-humanism threshold into the realm of cyborg-n-kind. Has one had there polymer levels checked lately?
Obviously chem trail is a thing. I’ve even read elana freelands big book. Dont these people spraying harmfull chem trails, live on this planet also? This obvious question seems to get left out all the time. The rich having a vaccine leaves out many other harmful issues. This whole thing is weird
if you’re interested in Elena Freeland (I am) then read her newest book “Under an Ionized Sky” (am plowing through it now)- it’s truly informative (not to mention frightening) but, hey, I’m used to being frightened; but I don’t let fright stand in the way of my of my learning-

I see it every day impacting the small and beautiful old growth forest I have – 5 acres w/dense firs, cedars, alders, and my others. I see foam on the tress and ground – not the kind that comes from the trees, but instead a chlorine smelling residue I’ve found in the early morning mist. Then you see if in the creek that runs through the property. Each year, more and more of my trees fall over and many more are dying and there is no sign of fungus, the black beetle, or other diseases that would do this. Although I do foster a beautiful environment for the Bees, the canary in my ecosystem is that this year, I have far fewer frogs than ever…especially the little tiny green ones that are really important and send out an alert as there population dies off. I do not use any chemicals on my property – no fertilizers, no Monsanto, and nothing that is not eco friendly goes down the drain. I do have planes flying over my house now non-stop where in WA it now seems that where ever you move, you are liven under an airport. I see the trails, I see the lines that do not fade for a very long time…The Orca Population is now down to 80…and when these great animals die out, there is no going back and Is unforgivable.
Anyone think Gates has a Morgellon’s vaccine yet?
we can be sure he (as well as many others) has chemtrail antedote-

it’s a bad system.
Easy to see.
Just look at the leadership it produce$.
I miss real clouds.
They want us to die.
And we are. Can’t tell you how many family members have an auto-immune disease…my daughter for one.
I hate these sub-human “sustainability” nazi pigs.
EMF is causing the auto-immune.
Get thee into a faraday cage.
Funny how they will brainwash us that Zyklon B, which was used to fumigate clothes to kill the bigs to stop diseases adn improve health and yet they will tell us that the chemtrails spewing their filth which is harming us immensely, albeit clandestinely, is somehow saving the world from the sun. The Earth is their outdoor gas chamber it seems.
I suppose, looking on the bright side, plastic IS being reused one way or another.
When they invent the all plastic magnet, I will be very worried.
They will legistlate cannabis to clear the lungs, but make it mandatory to smoke with Microsoft Plastic Bongs.
this is what it is all about…
and shall the Amalek feed on those people, in the end when they trip the plastic fantastic and see the light.
I am less concerned about the micro-plastic in the soil. Plastic is oil-derived. There are countless microorganisms who ‘snack’ on oil. Come back a few hundred years from now, and there will just be a lot of microorganisms going ‘Burp’.
The micro-plastics floating in the atmosphere are of more concern. In mass quantities, how do they affect the reflection/absorption of solar radiation? Are they a net warmer or a net cooler? And, I am almost positive that they are not included in most computer atmospheric models…
(The same with the sea; how does a floating ‘mat’ of micro-plastic affect the reflection/absorption of solar radiation? Are they a net warmer or a net cooler?)
And last but not least, how do the micro-plastic particles (almost dust size) affect our lungs? I know that miners’ “Black Lung” comes about because the lungs will expel particles above a certain size (sneezing, phlegm, etc.), but the tiniest particles accumulate and coat/damage the lungs. What do micro-plastic particles of various sizes do, in analogy?
Think of a permanent Mini-Ice-Age the 1968 movie and novelette Planet Of The Apes meets the movie Zardos. Our masters’ ultimate wet dream poisoners are us great work murder-suicide on a planetary scale.
It’s not CO2
it’s not you
Add plastic to your diet of GMOs, Chemtrails, pesticides., processed foods, and the multitude of other chemicals.
It’s in what we eat, drink & breath.
There are developing a lot of Carbon dioxide patsies to take the plastic wrap for the untouchables like chemtrials and the other modified villains.
Hi Dr F. I see your plastic rain in the Rockies and raise you plastic snow in the Alpes… and Antartica apparently..
And what goes South, must go North… PLastic and Rubber snow in the Arctic (what’s left)
Gates has got a cheek. Afterall his company must be one of the biggest contributors of plastic on this planet what with Microsoft making keyboards, mice, speakers, xbox etc. and indirectly all the computers that run Windows.
I am of the opinion that plastics are the least of our worries concerning what their sprays contain. In the end, they will use them, and countless other means, to reduce the population to manageable levels by their jackbooted thugs.
