This information is devoted to a short summary of the history, technology, and health effects of Project Cloverleaf, particularly in how it interfaces with multiplying the effects of HAARP technology.


Project Cloverleaf is a joint US-Canadian Military Operation involving distributing chemicals into the atmosphere above Canada and the United States.


Both US military refueling tankers and thousands of planes in private corporate aviation are used.




Military & civilian aspects of Project Cloverleaf are covert operations


The purpose is to seed into the atmosphere multiple weather/climate modification chemicals for purposes of proactive environmental warfare, originally motivated by a climate change concern and to introduce highly humanly toxic metallic salts and aerosol fibers that facilitate atmospheric operations of HAARP technology (which is involved in climate manipulation).


Piggybacking on this, the covert distribution framework of the toxic metals & chemicals has been used in other covert military/civilian operations like massive biological experiments on whole cities and countryside of people/ecologies - tests which are unauthorized & without consent or even public knowledge.


The purpose is nothing less than the actual physical transformation of the earth’s atmosphere in order to provide a platform for the latest chemical & electromagnetic technologies of warfare, communication, weather control, low-yield biological warfare, and control of populations through “non-lethal” chemical/electromagnetic means.





Project Cloverleaf is a global phenomenon


This is its short, documented history:







(Columbus Alive - December 6, 2001)



US environmental regulations limit all airborne particle concentrations less than 10 microns in diameter.



10 micron aluminum oxide called for in a patent issued to Hughes Aircraft Company.


Welsbach Seeding for Reduction of Global Warming’ refers to spreading highly reflective materials in the atmosphere to reflect enough incoming sunlight (1-2%) to slow rapidly-accelerating global warming.


The sky shield blueprint calls for dispensing microscopic particles of humanly toxic aluminum oxide and other reflective materials into the upper atmosphere. Computer simulations by Ken Caldeira at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory calculated that this would be enough to stop warming over 85 per cent of the planet, despite an anticipated doubling of carbon in the atmosphere within the next 50 years.


Lawrence Livermore priced the aerial spray program at US $1 billion dollars a year - a cheap fix to maintain massive private corporation petroleum profits in the face of Kyoto’s internationally agreed carbon cutbacks.


IPCC warned against unpredictable upsets of the atmosphere & angry populaces reacting to,

“the associated whitening of the visual appearance of the sky”.

Caldeira was so concerned he went public, warning deflecting sunlight would further cool stratosphere, concentrating icy clouds of ozone-gobbling CFCs that could destroy Earth’s solar radiation shield.


However, they ignored the global atmospheric risks & the ecological and human health concerns for the sake of maintaining a quick-fix on private oil profits. Aluminum in ‘Welsbach patent’ was intended to be put into the fuel of jet airliners. If it is added to the plane’s auxiliary fuel tanks, chemtrails will appear only at cruising altitudes after the flight crew switches to aux tanks.


Switching to main tanks for take-off and landing will leave no chemtrail clues close to the ground. According to a former engineer for Alcoa, aluminum oxide in the size ranges called for would polish jet turbine blades without harming them, & would form brilliant white plumes in skies.


The engineer warned that metallic particles intended to remain aloft for a year could settle quickly to the ground and become toxic.


August 1994:

Presence of human blood cells on artificial filaments identified by hospital lab tech. Human cells were in gel-material splattered on Oakville, WA.



June 17 1996, to Aug. 1996:

Pentagon paper presented and published: “Weather as a Force Multiplier - Owning the Weather in 2025, A Research Paper Presented To Air Force 2025.”



“According to Gen Gordon Sullivan, former Army chief of staff, ‘As we leap technology into the 21st century, we will be able to see the enemy day or night, in any weather- and go after him relentlessly.’ A global, precise, real-time, robust, systematic weather-modification capability would provide war-fighting CINCs w/ a powerful force multiplier to achieve military objectives.


Since weather will be common to all possible futures, weather-modification capability would be universally applicable and have utility across the entire spectrum of conflict. Capability of influencing the weather even on small scale could change it from force degrader to force multiplier.”

Recipe for creating “cirrus shields” was outlined, & it explained how “weather force specialists” were dispersing chemicals behind high-flying tanker aircraft in a process the air force calls “aerial obscuration”.



Early 1998:

“Months of ‘spraying’” by photo-identified US Air Force tanker planes over Espanola, Ontario, Canada. Former Ontario Provincial Police Officer and Supreme Court expert witness Ted Simola reported lingering Xs and numerous white trails, some of which “just ended” as if they had been shut off but remained in the sky.


Spring 1998:

Extremely high levels of aluminum powder in rainwater falling through thick sky plumes over Espanola, Ontario. Espanola lab tests conducted after residents began complaining to environment ministry of severe headaches, chronic joint pain, dizziness, sudden extreme fatigue, acute asthma attacks and feverless “flu-like” symptoms in a 50-square-mile area coinciding with “months of ‘spraying’” by photo-identified USAF tanker planes.


Disease-causing agents in chemtrails tested from rainwater samples by independent lab through Ontario Ministry of Environment: finds aluminum at 7x government safe levels. High enough, said lab, ‘to kill fish’.



Summer 1999:

Fine aluminum particles found in laboratory tests of chemtrail-contaminated rain taken in Espanola, Ontario.


The aluminum found in chemtrails over Ontario matches the 10 micron aluminum oxide called for in the 1994 patent. On the other side of the world, in Naples, Italy, the US Navy’s Kitty Chastain sat on her hotel balcony and watched aerial grids being laid all day just offshore over the Bay of Naples.

“People were coughing all over Naples,” she wrote.

On the bus ride in from the base, Chastain explained chemtrails to many sailors with hacking coughs.



Oct. 12, 1999:

Paris correspondent reported,

“...heavy activity from all directions, X upon X. The pilots here seem to like to play chicken; they fly right at each other and then one will swerve, their trails forming pitchforks and Xs.”

No contrails were being left by “normal planes” in the same skies. But the next day, planes flying over Paris ‘from all directions’ obscured sky.



Nov. 1999:

NDP Defense critic Gordon Earle presented a petition signed by 550 Espanola residents to Parliament in November, 1999 demanding the end of aerial spraying by commercial or military aircraft, foreign or domestic. They are ignored.


2000 to present:

Beginnings of reports of unusual white plumes in Canada & U.S. noticed by Air Canada pilots, police officers, ex-military personnel.



April 27, 2000:

American tourist in Spain, John Hendricks, dashed off quick email from El Café de Internet: “Were we surprised to see that the chemtrails are as bad here as they are anywhere, both in Mallorca and in Barcelona.”



May 2000:

‘Project Cloverleaf’ name revealed as the covert commercial airline aspect of the chemtrail spraying. An anonymous United States commercial aviation mechanic and airline corporate executive separately admit that commercial planes were rigged with special equipment to distribute unknown chemicals into the air, using thousands of commercial planes in the United States.


The chemicals are discharged through disguised, hollowed-out static wicks on the planes’ wings. Chemical solution tanks are covertly hidden on the planes. Covert operation is administered by the tiny number of outsourced private personnel who empty whole airports’ multiple airline lavatory tanks - while they fill up the chem-tanks at the same time - the cover for Project Cloverleaf.


Airline executives are told by unidentified government agents that if they tell public that they are spraying the atmosphere with illegal unmonitored compounds, they could be imprisoned. Project Cloverleaf documents are kept in locked safes at the companies involved.


All commercial airliners in the United States have accepted payment from federal government to conduct aerial spraying as early as 1998. Mechanic was threatened with firing, he was framed, & his internet usage was monitored after he analyzed several rigged chem-planes.



June 2000:

By mid 2000, unprecedented aerial spray campaign over 13 allied nations, causing serious illness/fatalities; changing clouds & weather.



December 2000:

Canadian aviation authority Terry Stewart investigated a Victoria caller’s complaint of intensive chemtrails over British Columbia capitol.


In taped phone message (later played to 15 million radio listeners), the environmental manager for the Victoria Int’l Airport checked with control tower, reporting:

“It’s a military exercise, U.S. and Canadian air force exercise, that’s going on. They wouldn’t give me any specifics on it.”

Aircraft making lingering X’s & grids over Vancouver Island, Canada, photo-identified as US Air Force KC-135 & KC-10 aerial refueling tankers.


US Air Force counts 650 four-engine KC-135 Stratotankers & 50 KC-10 Extenders in its active inventory. Canada without armadas of tankers. Acute upper respiratory & gastrointestinal illness, fatigue, headaches, joint pain, dizziness



March 12, 2001:

Multi-plane chem-missions verified in March, 2001 by FAA Air Traffic Control (ATC) manager for northeastern seaboard of United States. Confirms an ongoing East Coast ‘Military Operation.’


Similar military activities ongoing in other regions, he added. On his ‘scopes he could track the tankers flying north into Canadian airspace. In interview with freelance radio reporter S. T. Brendt, ATC Control manager said he’s told on as many as 4 occasions in March, 2001 to re-route commercial air traffic around military craft in classified aerial operation in the northeastern seaboard... repeatedly conducted at altitudes between 37,000-40,000 ft.


While air traffic controllers normally ignore air traffic above 10,000 feet, he said he was ordered to divert incoming European air traffic away from the military planes.


When asked why, he said,

“I was told there was a military exercise in the area. Of course, they wouldn’t give me any of the particulars.”

Were the tankers involved in weather modification?

“That approximates what I was told.”

3rd interview, question rephrased:

“Were tankers observed on ATC radars involved in climate modification?”

He confirmed this is what he was told was the object of the missions. USAF tankers spray a substance that showed up on ATC radars as a ‘haze’.


More interviews led to statements that ATC Controllers at Chicago’s O’Hare airport, all 3 major airports in New York, Los Angeles LAX, San Francisco, Atlanta, Cleveland, San Diego, Washington DC’s Dulles and Jacksonville, Florida were being ordered to route airliners beneath formations of Air Force tanker planes spraying something that regularly clouds all their screens.


Every controller, without exception, is being told to divert traffic due to military exercises.

“One of them said, ‘Aluminum or barium’ that’s not something you want to be breathing.”

ATC told aerial operations involve ‘climate experiments’.



June 17, 2001:

After photographing massive plumes over Gibsons, Ontario, Canada, Suzanne Smart checked with aviation authorities and found that no airline flight plans had been filed for that airspace at that time.


Official weather data showed that when her photos of multiple white plumes were taken, the 30 per cent humidity at 30,000 & 35,000 feet was less than half that needed for contrails to form. According to the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado, the only way to form artificial clouds in warm dry air is to introduce enough particulates into the atmosphere to attract and accrete all available moisture into visible vapor.


If repeated often enough, the resulting rainless haze can lead to drought.



Summer 2001:

Chemtrail pictures sent to newspapers by Associated Press.



Oct. 2001:

United States House of Representatives bill HR2977 introduced by Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich. It called for the peaceful uses of space, and a ban on ‘exotic weapons’.


Section 7 of the ‘Space Preservation Act of 2001sought specifically to prohibit ‘chemtrails’ by name.


Kucinich recently told the Columbus Alive newspaper (Jan. 24, 2002) that despite official denials, as head of the Armed Services oversight committee he is well acquainted with chemtrail projects.

“The truth is there’s an entire program in the Dept. of Defense - ‘Vision for 2020’ - that’s developing these weapons,” Kucinich told reporter Bob Fitrakis.

The U.S. Space Command’s 2020 vision calls for ‘dominance of space, land, sea and air’. Though “section vii” naming chemtrails, HAARP & other planet-threatening weapons were removed in a substitute bill, the removal was under pressure, according to Kucinich…



December 6, 2001:

A scientist working at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base recently told reporter Bob Fitrakis that two different projects are being conducted.


One involves cloud creation experiments to lessen the effect of global warming. Other chemtrails connected with the military’s extremely high-power Radio Frequency beam weapon in Alaska called HAARP.


The scientist claims that the two most common substances being sprayed into chemtrails are:

  • aluminum oxide

  • barium stearate

When you see planes flying back and forth marking parallel lines, X-patterns and grids in a clear sky, that’s aluminum oxide, according to the scientist.


Barium may be sprayed in a similar manner for the purpose of high-tech 3-D radar imaging.

Sprayings have only expanded since then. Complaints met with complete official denials and grandstanding.


Whole cities repeatedly buzzed/sickened.
