An improved method of penetration of the environmental (airborne) filament sample has been achieved. This accomplishment provides a pathway to an increased understanding of the structure and contents of the fibers. Numerous studies have been reported on the nature of this filament material over the years on this site. This material is the same type of material that was sent to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency(EPA) over a decade ago. The EPA refused to identify this material on the behalf of the public interest.
The Carnicom Institute is embarking on a first of its kind study of the Morgellons condition often referred to as Morgellons Disease. The project will start with a questionnaire process, and this is in progress at this time. Subsequent developments of data collection and/or clinical studies may develop in the future depending upon support and resources.
Clifford Carnicom summarizes the findings on Morgellons and outlines eleven different aspects of the phenomenon that is worth further investigation.
This paper discusses the Carnicom Institute's acquisition of a Beckman dual-beam spectrophotometer, and how this acquisition allowed for the spectral analysis of environmental filament samples and those associated with the Morgellon's condition are of one and the same nature. This association has given rise to Carnicom calling these events "the worst crime in human history".
Through testing of this spectrophotometer (several spectral analyses are shown on this page), Carnicom was able to verify its reliability and accuracy and usefulness in performing spectral analyses of various things, such as blood, copper sulfate, and environmental fiber samples. The fiber samples that Carnicom had sent to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and other human oral filament samples that are representative of, and characteristic of, the so-called "Morgellons" condition.
The spectral analyses of both of these samples is identical, which again, allows for the claim to be made that The conclusion drawn from this particular research is that the nature of a repeatedly occurring environmental filament sample is identical in nature to that filament entity which is representative and characteristic of the "Morgellons" condition. This equality in nature has now been established unequivocally through three different methods: visually, metrically, and analytically.
As such, at least one source of the Morgellons condition has been identified and it is a repeating environmental source. It is now up to us as the inhabitants and stewards of this planet to comprehend the consequences and the significance of the conclusions herein.
A continuing discussion of the characteristics of filament samples discovered by Clifford Carnicom and others is presented here. It is reiterated that an environmental source, at least in part, for specific biological organisms that are under scrutiny in association with the so-called "Morgellons" condition, has been identified. This source is the unusual airborne filament sample that was sent in June of 2000 to the Administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for identification on behalf of the public welfare. This particular and same sample that was sent to the EPA has been successfully cultured and reproduced, and the culture growth exhibits the identical biological organisms, structure and chemistry of certain biological filaments that are under extensive study in association with the Morgellons condition.
The different cultured structures discussed above are described and pictured within this work as well. They are:
1) An encasing filament structure (containing an internal network of sub-micron filaments)
2) A chlamydia-like organism (Chlamydia pneumonia)
3) A pleomorphic form (Mycoplasma-like)
4) An erythrocytic form (red blood cell).
A concerned citizen has written to Clifford Carnicom about an experience he had witnessing fibers falling from the sky on November 13. 2005. This person watched as the fibrous material that fell on the ground dissipated, but he was able to collect some of the fibers and put them in a jar. His wife developed a skin rash when she touched some of the fibers and had to be treated by a doctor who couldn’t determine the cause of the rash.
Upon observing them the next day, some two-thirds of the material had disappeared from the jar. This person decided to do some of his own analysis with a microscope, and when he opened the jar, the concentrate from the breakdown of the fibers blew into his face, causing bad burning in his eyes and throat. Once recovered, he was able to take pictures of the material under a microscope, and those pictures are included in this paper.
Clifford Carnicom begins this paper with his thoughts on the results of this citizen's work, stating "This report demonstrates that there are very likely significant health consequences that accompany these atmospheric operations. The report also demonstrates that the United States Environmental Protection Agency has completely failed in its mission to serve the public and to protect the health and welfare of our environment."
It is thought that the graph shown on this page may well be at the core of the aerosol operations. This graph shows direct ion measurements in combination with historical humidity data during the past month. The graph shows what appear to be highly favored conditions for the conduct of the aerosol operations or the transport of aerosol banks within a region. Aerosol operations are being staged at specific times of low humidity and low negative ion count. These two tenets, that of humidity association and ionic manipulation, have been at the foundation of the aerosol research since the early days of investigation. It seems quite fair to state at this stage that the balances of nature are being upset with artificial methods that threaten the viability of life on this planet. A very general interpretation of the current data can be made as follows: Low humidity is a period of relatively low moisture in the atmosphere. A low negative ion count is also generally indicative of lower moisture levels in the atmosphere. The research indicates that both of these variables, taken together, serve to indicate likely periods of aircraft aerosol or aerosol bank operations. This finding may appear to be in contradiction to the humidity conditions that have been associated with the operations, but in reality they are not contradictory in any fashion.
On this page, Clifford Carnicom explores the distinct possibility that observed and measured saline stress on plants and trees in the southwest United States is coming from the metals and salts being found in the aerosols that are continuing to be researched. This paper raises some questions that deserve fair consideration with respect to the massive global effects from the aerosol operations on observed plant and tree die-offs.
Discussed here are some observed plant and tree die-offs in the southwest U.S. starting around the beginning of 1999, when the aerosol operations began to be observed en masse in this area. As well, ground conductivity testing at various altitudes is detailed from further Carnicom research around this same time. One of the die-off discussions centers on the local grasslands in the extremely dry southwest. A second discussion ensues regarding the major die-off of the Pinyon Pines species in this same area. Though there are current theories to explain these situations, the salination of the soils appears to be a main cause. Conductivity readings (and correspondingly, ion concentrations) seem especially high in these areas of die-off.
It has already been reported in previous Carnicom papers that the expected effect from the introduced aerosols is to heat up the lower atmosphere, and not to cool it as many have attempted to promote under the guise of a secret but benevolent motive. Under the best of circumstances it can only be determined that the aerosols will aggravate the drought and warming problems, if not actually induce these very conditions. Reduced forage productivity is already expected in part from the specific heat and desiccation properties of the aerosols.
Clifford Carnicom discusses a series of conductivity tests conducted on recent heavy snowfall samples collected in New Mexico and Arizona in 2005, which have refocused attention on the electrolytic, ionic and conductive properties of environmental samples in connection with the aerosol operations. This report has been received and documents unusually high levels of calcium and potassium within a rain sample, where previous work has demonstrated unexpected levels of barium and magnesium.
Discussion in this work ensues and outlines conductivity testing on these samples, where conductivity is a means to measure the ionic concentration within a solution. Conductivity is proportional to ionic concentration, and the results of this testing shows the increased conductivity of the atmosphere from having these salts dispersed in the aerosol operations. This discussion also describes the difficulty of performing conductivity testing because of the concept of 'ohmic heating', extrapolates the testing results to calculate the volume of these ionic salts within the regional atmosphere, and considerations to what the implications are of having these elements in our air, land and water.
A laboratory analysis of a rainwater sample from a rural location in the midwestern U.S. has been received by Clifford Carnicom, and reveals extremely high levels of potassium and calcium within the sample. Examination of the aerosol issue has, almost from the beginning, focused on the important properties of such elements of Groups I and II of the periodic table. The attention has arisen because of the ease by which such elements are ionized. This ionization will take place in the majority of cases quite readily with the energy available from ultra-violet light and, in some cases, from visible light alone. Candidates for further and future testing, include strontium, aluminum and titanium. A partial list of the effects of ion disturbances upon human health are discussed in this work, and include Impairment of the body's ability to absorb oxygen, the development of allergies, high levels of serotonin in the bloodstream, and a reduction in the body's ability to filter airborne contaminants from lung tissue. Direct research from this site alone now documents unexpected levels of calcium, magnesium, potassium and barium. The acquisition of an ion counter will be a valuable instrument to further this research; if anyone is in a position to provide or loan this device please feel free to contact Clifford Carnicom.
A model has been developed to depict the estimated increase in the mortality rate as a function of the decrease in visibility, and the results of this model in a graphical form are shown in this paper. It can be observed that mortality increases as visibility decreases, and that the effect is highly significant. This model does not consider the additional negative health effects that occur from the toxic nature of particulate matter. The American Heart Association establishes that an increase in the density of particulate matter will cause an increase in mortality. The expected increase is expressed in a differential form of an increase of 1% mortality of an increase of 10ug (micrograms) per cubic meter. Readers may want to also read the previous Carnicom paper related to this issue titled ’BARIUM TESTS ARE POSITIVE’ (dated May 24, 2004).
A series of qualitative chemical tests and deductions performed by Clifford Carnicom now confirm without doubt the presence of significant amounts of barium within atmospheric samples. Citizens may now begin the process of collecting the sample materials for formal submission to public environmental agencies and private labs for identification. Presented in this work is a detailed analysis of how these results were obtained. The most reasonable hypothesis at this point is that the original compound collected by various methods is a barium oxide form. This compound readily combines with water to form barium hydroxide. Ionizing plate filters and fiber filters both appear to be successful at accumulating the solid form of this metallic salt. Solubility, pH, precipitation, chromatography, electrode, electrolysis, flame, spectroscopy and spectroscopy comparison tests all support the conclusion within this report that significant levels of barium compounds have been verified to exist and are now to be examined in the atmospheric sampling process.
This report corroborates, at an elevated level, the previous research that is available on this site. Readers may wish to peruse the previous papers on this topic: ’ELECTROLYSIS AND BARIUM’ (dated May 27, 2002), and ’SUBMICRON PARTICULATES ISOLATED’ (dated April 26, 2004).
