Under current projections, it will be some months ahead before I will be able to engage fully into the Environmental Filament Project that has been outlined under this site. In the interim, however, an important introduction to what lies ahead can be presented. Carnicom Institute is now able to display a series of scanning electron microphotographs of a typical sample; they will not be discussed in any detail until I am able to begin the study project. Those familiar with my work may be aware of my reluctance to use the term nano-technology in association with any environmental or biological samples examined thus far; this has been due to the lack of any electron microscope images that are derived directly from these same samples. This is no longer the case, and the use of the nano-technology term in association with this material is now fully justified. The samples shown below are identical to those that the United States Environmental Protection Agency has refused to identify or analyze. It has taken close to a decade and a half to acquire these images; appreciation is extended to all parties that have helped to make this information available to the public. Sufficient additional samples have been received, both national and internationally, to support the Institute project plans. This study will begin as the opportunity affords itself and as parallel work that is underway is completed. Light microscope images of the same material are also shown below.
It is now appropriate to disclose the circumstances involving a laboratory report on an airborne filament sample that was paid for in the year of 1999. This report was issued jointly by three separate companies and they shall remain anonymous at this time. It is now appropriate to present this information as the conclusions of the report are undeniably false. Whether or not there was intent to misrepresent the facts of the case is not to be discussed in this paper; the purpose is to disclose information that is relevant to the public interest and welfare. The laboratory was hired and paid significant monies to analyze and identify the very same airborne environmental filament sample that was sent to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) during this same time period of 1999-2000. The failure of the EPA to identify that sample is adequately documented in this site. This report will chronicle the events that surround this affair.
It can now be established with a high degree of certainty that the external casing of the environmental filament samples are composed of keratin or a keratin-like material. This supposition has been in place for a number of years by this researcher; it can now be demonstrated to be the case by direct chemical and spectroscopic means. Certain ramifications of this finding, in conjunction with earlier work, are as follows:
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.
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."
This work contains fiber samples collected and more pictures of fiber samples that were sent to Carnicom from a witness in Joseph, Oregon on October 2, 2000. These samples are identical in both appearance and characteristic to those discussed in previous Carnicom papers. All four samples collected so far have been reviewed under a microscope, and these new samples are identical to those that were sent to the US EPA. These samples have been found to contain significant biological components.
