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."
Stories of three different scenarios where testing laboratories terminated services for those seeking knowledge of the makeup of samples sent to them are told in this paper. One was for a concerned citizen who had a rainwater sample tested, and had sent the results to Clifford Carnicom, which were published on the Carnicom website. After publication, this particular lab refused to do further testing for this individual, and gave no indication as to why they had made such a decision. Carnicom himself had a similar situation occur when he had an atmospheric fiber sample tested by a different lab...services were terminated when the results of the lab report were challenged and refuted in a personal visit by this Carnicom. Upon making the first two of nine contradictions known to the principal of that company, this owner stated that "this discussion is now over".
A third encounter happened when the career of a state criminal forensic scientist was threatened when an interest was expressed by that individual to assist in the identification of a certain atmospheric fibrous sample. It was stated in that case that the career of that individual and all post-retirement benefits of the forensicist would be terminated if any involvement in identification were to take place. The act of laboratory identification was never completed.
Current research involves a process of collection of atmospheric samples with the use of a plate ionizing filter from a citizen’s HEPA filter. This material is unusual in nature and is composed of two primary forms : fairly uniform fibrous and crystalline/powder materials. This material has been collected, placed into solution and subjected to electrolysis. A definite and repeatable chemical reaction does take place, which results in the formation of a highly insoluble precipitate. The best current analysis of that material positively identifies the existence of a metallic salt. The best analysis of the nature of that metallic salt is that of a barium compound which releases positive metallic ions in solution. In addition, direct visible observation of the precipitate under extremely high magnification detects the presence of reasonably uniform spherical sub-micron particulates within the electrolysis result. The specific gravity of these particulates is greater than that of water. Pictures of these samples are attached in this work. It has long been postulated that the size of the aerosols under examination is in the sub-micron range, and that extremely high magnification will be necessary for detection. The size range of the aerosols has previously been estimated at approximately 0.5 microns in size as a result of atmospheric light effects; this conforms to the current observations.
I have recently been notified of an unusual crystal form that has developed within an ionizer. A detailed description of the circumstances of occurrence is presented below by the sender of the sample; the original report was submitted on July 20, 2003. I have placed the material under the microscope and have taken several microphotographs at a magnification of 200x; these photographs also are presented below. The crystals have a unique branch-like, or dendritic structure, and they are highly soluble in water. Any individual with additional information regarding the nature of this sample is welcome to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Appreciation is extended to the sender for the efforts that have been made to make this information available to the public for further examination.
Crystalline structures that were found aligned on a driveway in Carpinteria, California on June 17, 2003 are examined in this work. A concerned citizen contacted Clifford Carnicom, who recommended the samples be sent to Carnicom for analysis. These structures are rectangular/cubicle, opaque, translucent, and insoluble in water, hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid, sodium hydroxide and acetone. Pictures of the as now unidentified material are included for analysis.
Recent results from examining rainfall samples using methods of crystal chemistry are indicating substantial levels of metallic particulates within these rainwater samples. The analysis of the aerosol operations by a combination of methods repeatedly results in considerable attention being given to the elements of Group II of the periodic table (e.g. – magnesium, calcium, barium). The crystalline forms primarily found in these rainwater samples and documented with microscopic pictures is that believed to be magnesium chloride. This gives an indication of the existence of ionic magnesium within the rainfall sample. A description of the method used to create the crystalline forms shown in the attached pictures is provided here, with discussion of the polarizability and deliquessence attributes of these samples.
This page contains the letter from the Environmental Protection Agency stating that it is not the business of the EPA to test the sample that had been sent to them 18 months prior, asking that an analysis be performed on fibrous material that had been collected after aerosol operations.
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.
Additional fiber samples were sent to Carnicom that were found in Diamond Springs, California, Rancho Murietta, California, and Folsom, California. The material in these samples appears to be identical to that analyzed and documented previously. These samples also appear to be identical to those samples sent to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the agency that refuses to identify the material in the samples. Photos of these samples are shown in this paper.
A gel sample, identical to two others previously identified, is analyzed in this paper. This sample was sent in by a witness who found numerous identical samples in her yard after small planes and helicopters flew over her house just before the samples were found. There appears to be a clear cellular structure in the sample that absorb iodine stain readily and become darkened in color. Reports of serious ill health have been associated with this gel material.
