The spraying of Monterey and surrounding areas without sufficient public input is unacceptable. Maybe you should be sprayed with phernomes... or whatever you call them. That would cool your jets...

I fully believe all of this is contrived, and a form of genecide. I have heard about the Illuminati since the '40s and wars, manditory vaccinations, as well as other government mandates that are forced down the populations thoat can lead to their objective of reduction of world population. It is as contrived as 9/11. The one critical factor in whatever happens everywhere in this world is not to more into fear, but rather into the light you are. Serve one another by protest from a sacred space.

Good point to make, Violette!

You are so right, we have to stay in a space of light, but not be ignorant to what is happening around us. It's not about moving into fear, but rather standing up for what is right and true. That's what I think, anyway!

The way that "they" have resisted all attempts by the people of Santa Cruz and Monterey counties to stop the spraying, or even to get disclosure of the ingredients of the spray is intense and suspicious. It is a unique area, politically and spiritually. Very liberal and politically/socially active. "They" have been trying to break it all up with redistricting for many years...

Dear Freinds,

I find this truly appauling that your government has not tested these chemicals before use . My suggestion is to set up small protest groups and a very large petition to the Whitehouse where all these gross things start to happen, yes why not bring in Micheal Moore to do a documentary , your government needs a real shake up to stop all this corruption and violation of human rights. People have to stand up against corrupt governments otherwise we will be used as guinea pigs and have no rights and be controlled like robots.

Because of the West Nile outbreak here in Bakersfield Cali, we have been sprayed several times with socalled "natural" pesticides that have "no severe effect" on humans. I have asthma and severe allergies myself, and wonder what they are actually spraying on us. I wouldn't put it past the powers that be to spray us with some really scary crap under the guise of "government help and safety measures.

K Lips, aside from being rude, left a comment that had nothing whatsoever to do with the subject. I assume he just wanted to post the Two Houses thing that has been going around. It's pretty obvious that Bush who opposes everything environmental and denies global warming is taking advantage of all the latest technology for himself (why is that?) while denying it to the public. Gore spends the bulk of his time trying to help people realize and deal with the effects of global warming all over the world and has been in the process of changing his house for some time.

I live in the area being subjected to what feels like domestic terrorism. I called the CDFA hot line to ask when our area would be sprayed and when the words came out of my mouth "when will we be sprayed?" it didn't sound real, not here, not me, not in America. It's madness, I've been to the meetings and these people DO NOT CARE, they NEVER address the human aspect of this program. We are test subjects. The only warning we get about when we'll be sprayed comes within hours of it starting IF you signed up for their email alerts, so it's impossible to make any solid plans for those of us who have to leave the area for health reasons, protecting children, needing to make arrangements for pets or just unwilling to take the risk of staying.

Many people in Monterey county are sick but without written verification from a doctor for the CDFA
they are not considered. Who pays for the doctor? Many doctors are afraid to get involved since it's nearly impossible to prove absolutely the effects of the chemicals for immediate effects. The long term effects are of greater concern but since no studies have ever been done there's no way to say absolutely whether there will be any. Why is the burden of proof on us? The judge said there wasn't enough medical evidence presented to call off the spraying. How could there be? It's crazy!

We can't allow this to become the policy of our government, it's horrible. I feel like I'm caught in the Twilight Zone. I have health issues that put me at very high risk for staying so I'm packed, forced to leave but unable to know when until it's all but too late.

The spraying "schedule" is decided, apparently by the pilots, so getting information about where and when with much time to spare, as Annie said, is next to impossible.

The weather is a big factor in all of this, they were supposed to spray Salinas last night and didn't because of the fog... so that pushed both Salinas and Santa Cruz back another day. Fog again? Could push them back again...

Please correct me if I am wrong but if they don't get started by mid-November then they will not attempt to spray again until February, which gives us all some time to STOP this insanity!

We need to take matters into our own hands. The Republicans ran the government and we saw what happened. Democrats took over this January and we saw what happened.

It's time for a change. I call for a coalition government of Leftists, Rightists and Centrists. We can elect the Libertarian candidate with Ron Paul, Alan Keyes, Dennis Kucinich, Ralph Nader and Gore as participants.

Thanks for getting this in the public eye Maria. This is extremely important. Especially our children who are voiceless to stop it.

The Pesticide Problem
When Rachel Carson wrote Silent Spring in 1962, she raised public awareness about the effects of pesticide use on our health and our environment. However, thirty years after Carson drew attention to the health and environmental impacts of DDT, use of equally hazardous pesticides has only increased.

-In the last 30 years, pesticide use has increased 50%.
-In 1995, 1.2 billion pounds of pesticides were used in the United States.
-Between 1991 and 1995, pesticide use in California rose 31%.
-In the same time span, use of pesticides that cause cancer rose 129%.

The dramatic increase of pesticide use has come at a price. We now know that pesticide use can be linked to a wide range of public health and environmental concerns. Potentially more troubling is the vast amount that we still do not know about pesticides and their impact on people - especially children - and our environment.

I read this yesterday. The site has a video with English Subtitles(it is in German) and another named Aerosol Crimes 1st Edition which brings evidence of what has been happening in New Mexico , Ca and other states. It is the elephant in the room when it comes to global warming. Tired of feeling guilty for all you haven't done. This will help you get over that. And notice these countries are Democratic nations.

'Germany Becomes the First Country to Admit Clandestine Chemtrails Operation'
For all those activists who have been investigating and reporting on clandestine government operations around the world to manipulate our weather patterns, this news from Germany is groundbreaking.
The TV news report states that “the military planes of the German Federal Army are manipulating our climate; this is what the weather researchers are presuming and their suspicions are confirmed…
“We can state with a 97% certainty that we have on our hands chemical trails (chemtrails) comprised by fine dust containing polymers and metals, used to disrupt radar signals.”

Noted and signed the petition. We are being poisoned, experimented on, and maimed and killed for $$$ by governments and corporations. It's disgusting, and most people have no idea the products they eat, put on their skin, the chlorine in their water, and on and on are designed to hurt you. Then, you can spend your lifes earnings or give away your house to be "saved", only probably to get something else they've given you in the last "medicine" you used. Raw almonds, they prevent cancer, so now they've passed the law that all almonds have to be FUMIGATED in chemicals before you buy them. So there is no such thing as a raw almond anymore. There is no money in your good health. There is no winning the "war" on cancer, etc. because they need that war to keep up the lifestyles they enjoy from your pain. The chemical industry goes to great lengths to make you think they are saving you, when generally they are killing you with their products. All persons who mixed up this sprays chemical cocktail, along with every government official that said "Yes, gas 'em", should be sprayed the maximum dose, then dropped into the Great Pacific Garbage Dump, where they can mutate with all the plastic out there.

It's socked in with fog tonight and they can't spray in the fog... so they are saying that they will try to do Scott's Valley and not the coastal area...

I'm not in the area so I'm relying on information from people who ARE in the area...

If they can't spray in the fog then the fog is an ally, but they will spray Scott's Valley if the fog doesn't go in that far... please do everything you can to be informed and aware!

Judge Denies Move To Stop Santa Cruz Moth Spraying
(BCN) SANTA CRUZ Spraying of a synthetic pheromone over Santa Cruz County targeted at a moth that feeds on more than 250 plants and could cause significant damage to crops is set to begin Sunday after a Superior Court judge denied a temporary injunction to halt the spraying.

In a Thursday afternoon decision the judge ruled the spraying of the light brown apple moth should continue as planned by the California Department of Food and Agriculture, according to county spokeswoman Dinah Phillips.

On Monday, the Santa Clara County Supervisors voted 4-1 to pursue legal action against the CDFA to halt the spraying of the chemical Checkmate LBAM-F that many feel has not been properly tested for long-term health effects.

David Dilmore, director of Help Our Peninsula's Environment, said he is disappointed with the decision.

"The problem is that the CDFA has found a way to avoid following the law. They avoid an environmental review and get the job done before we can get the case into court."

HOPE also had a request for an injunction to halt the spraying of the same chemical over Monterey County denied but still has a case pending with no court dates set, Dilmore said.

An email notification system of CDFA spraying plans is in place for residents to sign up and receive information by visiting:

Spraying over Santa Cruz County is planned to begin Sunday at 8 p.m. and continue every night until Nov. 9, according to the CDFA.

The fact that the areas being sprayed does have a population of politically and spiritually unique individuals,
tells me that this has some sort of dark direction. There is no regard for life of any kind when it involves
some kind of evil gain. Maria is correct to bring this to the attention of many.

We got sprayed last night, it was a horrible experience, this whole thing is a surreal nightmare. My account is on the blog if you're interested. I will do everything I can to stop this madness from ever happening again. More people will be sprayed tonight even though the moths are all pretty much dormant. My health being what it is means I'm stuck in the house for at least a few days with all the air leaks sealed up and no idea how this will affect me in the future. No one should ever be subjected to this ordeal.
