World Gathering For Truth's
BYRON BAY CHEMTRAILS
By Eve Sinton, Environmental Editor - The

Last Wednesday's unusual
sky patterns over Byron Bay attracted the attention of
a number of people interested in the phenomenon of
'chemtrails', which are the subject of a large volume of internet
and fringe media content.
What they saw was a
lingering set of vapour trails, similar to those commonly seen
when high-altitude jet aircraft pass overhead and known as
But unlike contrails,
which dissipate over a few minutes, chemtrails linger in the
sky for hours, sometimes eventually forming an overhead haze.
Chemtrails are typically found at lower altitudes than
contrails, typically between 10,000 and 15,000 feet.
Often, chemtrails form
cross-cross or scattered matchstick patterns. They are
associated with anonymous white aircraft, and appear to be emitted
directly from the plane, unlike contrails which form
distinctly behind, and separate from, high-flying jet aircraft.
Within hours of the
sightings, the high-volume Jeff Rense web-site www.rense.com featured a report
of 'Chemtrails over
Byron Bay and Gold Coast of Australia'.
Local resident Gary Opit
contacted The Echo about the sightings, saying 'During
the last couple of years in the USA various newspapers have
been reporting epidemics of respiratory infections and
auto-immune reactions immediately after residents have
sighted aircraft creating chemtrail grid patterns followed by
occluded skies. Severe headaches, shortness of breath, joint
pain and dry, hacking coughs are the usual symptoms.
'It is interesting to note
that Dr Lyman Condie, chair of the Virtual Proving Ground at
the US Army's Dugway biowarfare testing centre, states in
their website that "the computer- derived Atmospheric
Dispersion Models, used to simulate the spread of bioweapons
in the open air, must be validated by field testing on live
human subjects provising a far more realistic and believable

rebuffed with an 'access forbidden' message.
Mr Opit continued, 'In
December 1998 and January 1999 the BBC reported lingering
contrails and cobweb-like fallout followed by epidemics of
respiratory infection in the London, Birmingham, Manchester,
Mersey, Norfolk and Norwich areas of England and in August
1998 at Quirindi, NSW, dozens of residents reported a
chemtrail-watcher, Shlomo Arnon, provided The Echo with many
references on the subject, including a woman from Pingelly, WA, a
small town south-east of Perth. She claims her family has
suffered dramatic ill-health since numerous chemtrail
appearances over the town in April and May last year, and that
many other the townspeople suffered similarly. Mr Arnon says
he also saw chemtrails over Brunswick Heads in early
The skies over Byron last
Wednesday also caught the attention of wholistic
health practitioner Mark Abriel. He photographed the
chemtrail-like formation while on a surf-stop at Lennox
Mr Abriel has been
intrigued by a number of people coming to him recently with
ailments similar to those described by chemtrail-affected people.
Although he is the first to point out it's impossible to
link these illnesses with chemtrails, just as it's extremely
difficult to unequivocally link ailments with almost any form of
chemical exposure, he finds the similarities striking.
'These people had
lingering infections, such as month-long flu symptoms, or
ulceration of the mucus lining inside the nose,' he said. 'They had
lethargy, digestive problems, confusion and flu-like
sore throats.' Analyses of chemtrail fallout overseas have
shown up a biochemical-warfare soup of toxins, pathogens,
fungi, moulds, and genetically-engineered organisms such as
Mycoplasma Fermentens Incognitus and Psuedomonas Flourescens.
Some of these organisms have been linked to the 'Gulf
War Syndrome'. Most are extremely antibiotic-resistant.
Mark Abriel said, 'The
whole brew is said to be activated by oxidated stress, so
anything that oxidises the body and the production of free
radicals will accelerate the destructive effects.'
He is a practitioner of
Ayurvedic medicine which has at its disposal some potent
anti-oxidants, such as Amla berry, and finds that people with
mystery lingering illnesses often respond well to these
treatments. 'It's an ancient form of defence against our newest
modern threats,' says Mr Abriel.' He finds that the
diagnostic techniques of Kinesiology and other alternative health
traditions make treatment and neutralisation of
difficult illnesses very effective. 'But
techniques are not accepted as evidence by Western science,' he says.
the appearance of the phenomenon over Byron
extremely disturbing, and a trawl through the
internet explains why.
There are hundreds of sites documenting
Chemtrail research includes
the possibility of biowarfare tests, clandestine
mass-vaccination, attempts to ameliorate global warming, and
de-population strategies. Some of the exerts, like award-winning
journalist Will Thomas, make convincing reading.
And there are plenty of
sceptics who say this is nothing but another lunatic-fringe
conspiracy theory. Space constraints prevent us from evaluating
these theories here.
While it's not possible to
be sure exactly what was drifting over Byron last week, a
trawl of the internet certainly has one paying more attention
than usual to the sky.
