Though there are certainly many parts to this unfolding story, the largest piece of the puzzle by far still goes completely unacknowledged by most of the scientific community and all of the main stream media/corporate/military/industrial complex.

The massive elephant in the room has been, and still is, "stratospheric aerosol geoengineering" (SAG), AKA "solar radiation management" (SRM). A primary stated goal of the geoengineering programs is to provide a "solar shield" to slow "runaway climate change" by spraying tens of millions of tons of highly toxic metal nano particulates (a nanometer is 1/1,000,000,000 of a meter) into the atmosphere from jet aircraft. Is the spraying only for solar radiation management? Based on available data, there are a number of known objectives including but not limited to SRM, weather warfare, over the horizon radar enhancement, controlling food production, and probable biological testing. There are likely many more aspects and agendas related to the atmospheric spraying which we can not yet know.

Egg and poultry groups Tuesday criticized the Agriculture Department's handling of the worst avian flu outbreak in U.S. history, with one Iowa turkey producer charging the response allowed the deadly virus to spread.

At a Senate Agriculture Committee hearing about the bird flu outbreak that has devastated producers in Iowa and 14 other states, Brad Moline, a third-generation turkey farmer from Manson, Iowa, told lawmakers that state and federal officials were slow to sit down with poultry groups to outline how they planned to combat the disease and what would be required of the industry.

Officials at Yosemite National Park said Wednesday they have selected a new company to take over hotels, restaurants and outdoor activities under the national park system's most lucrative single contract for services.

Aramark has been offered the 15-year contract valued at $2 billion, park spokesman Scott Gediman said. If the deal is approved, the Philadelphia-based company would replace Delaware North on March 1, the day after the old contract expires.

State water managers have ordered the city of San Francisco to stop taking water from the Tuolumne River, restricting some of the city's senior water rights.

The orders are part of a larger effort by the state to limit water use from thousands of water rights holders, in order to manage dwindling supplies during the drought. It's an historic moment for San Francisco, whose early water rights and exclusive water system has kept the city out of the water battles that have plagued most of the state.

A kaumatua is making a plea for his community to get behind a campaign to save the Ngunguru pipi beds.

Sonny Wellington from Ngunguru said a recent mass die-off of shellfish was a sign that all is not well with their environment. Mr Wellington, 82, said when he was a boy shellfish of all kinds were abundant at Ngunguru and people could catch a good snapper from the beach.

It's being called "unprecedented" and "grisly" by National Geographic. Massive waves of dead seabirds are littering the coastline of the Western US and British Columbia (BC).

National Geographic reports that in October 2014, the young birds began to wash up on the shores of California's Farallon Islands to Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands) off central British Columbia.

A few weeks ago, we reported that, while many across the country are concerned about measles, which occurs in a largely vaccinated population and has caused no deaths, a larger threat wasn't receiving proper attention: drug-resistant tuberculosis...

These infect at least two million Americans each year and kill 23,000, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). A recent article in The Atlantic magazine highlighted the antimicrobial qualities of plant extracts and essential oils. The article notes that "various oils have also been shown to effectively treat a wide range of common health issues such as nausea and migraines, and a rapidly growing body of research is finding that they are powerful enough to kill human cancer cells of the breast, colon, mouth, skin, and more."

More than 120,000 saiga antelopes died in central Kazakhstan in May according to a report by The Association for the Conservation of Biodiversity of Kazakhstan (ACBK) - Fauna & Flora International's partner in country.

The first signs of trouble came on 10-11 May 2015 when hundreds of saiga were reported to have died in Kostanay region. As information about similar occurrences flooded in from across central Kazakhstan, the death toll shot up from hundreds to thousands and then tens of thousands of animals.

The towering plumes of steam emanating from power plant calderas that have come to symbolize the massive and, at times, menacing nature of the energy industry might soon have their natural dissipation into thin air preempted by a figurative one.

A team of researchers from Drexel University, in concert with experts from academia and industry, are creating a new technology that replaces the voluminous amounts of steam-producing water used to cool the plants with trillions of tiny wax beads-and could be the end of those fluffy, yet ominous, white clouds.
