Saw this fresh article just now. The photos might be older, but couldn't find original sources through Google.
Only thing I could find out was that the pump engine is a Gorman-Rupp system

So what is actually going on in this series of images?

The Claim:

In the "Look Up" chemtrails propaganda movie, William Thomas makes a claim that during the winter of 1999-2000, 8,000 people in Birmingham, England died from chemtrails, and that refrigerated trucks had to be used as temporary mortuaries. I looked into that claim again, as I did back when he actually made it..

Analyzing the claim:

1999 was a bad year for flu and pneumonia in the UK, and 8000 deaths is a regrettably large number, but I could find no references to any such number as Thomas is claiming, and was not able to do so when he made it. It sounds rather an outlandish thing to claim, Birmingham, England had a...

The following story from Infowars claims that Obama is basically a puppet president trained by Harry Lennix, who was recruited by shadowy figures to make Obama seem more presidential. However it seems to be entirely baseless, as Lennix flatly denies he said anything like that, and old video of Obama shows that he spoke the same, and had the same mannerisms as now, way back before he met Lennix.

Kevin Trudeau had several conspiracy theories. One of which is that in the 1950s a British doctor (A.T.W. Simeons) discovered a "miracle drug" that would change the body's metabolism, allowing you to eat whatever you liked, and maintain a healthy weight. However, in this theory, the powerful food and diet industry conspired to cover up this secret.

Trudeau wrote a book "The Weight Loss Cure 'They' Don't Want You to Know About", and with the help of some very seductive infomercials the book shot to #1 on the New York Times Bestseller list. The infomercial depicted a very enticing diet, where you could eat steak and chocolate. But the reality was very different, with the book calling for a period of eating just 500 calories a day, taking lots of herbal supplements, and injections of the hCG hormone.

Hello All.

I am new to this board. I stumbled on it from Twitter.

I was wondering if anyone could tell me what might explain this photo.
It was taken in 1992, in the desert, during a time of increased earthquake activity.
We had had a 7.4 approximately a week earlier, and I was trying to get a photograph of the "glow" that was over the hills at nights.

The camera is facing west toward hills, they are dark, there are no houses or roads there. This was intentional. I don't know what time it was, sometime between 8 p.m and midnight.

What would explain this?
I have other photos that do show squiggled lights, due to time exposure I assume (I'm not a photographer), but nothing like this.

In the foreground on the right, I think that is a street sign.

I appreciate any information you could give me.

Thank You.

I'm a debunker. I like finding and exposing bunk. I do it because I enjoy doing it, and because I think it can do some good in terms of helping people not being scared of things that don't exist, and in terms of helping people focus on real issues.

As a debunker, quite often I debunk claims that some "official story" is wrong. For example, the "official story" of the long lasting white lines in the sky is that they are "just contrails". There's a conspiracy theory that they are actually "chemtrails". I've extensively debunked most of the claims of evidence behind this theory.

As a result, I often get the accusation that I'm a "supporter" of the official story, and that I "trust the government", and that I think "everything is fine", and "there's nothing to see here".

This could not be further from the truth.

I don't trust "the government" (and here we are talking about the US government). I most certainly do not trust career politicians....

Chemtrail believers frequently question why contrails are becoming more prevalent today compared to previous decades. The answer of course is the almost exponential growth in world air traffic since 1970, a period just before deregulation began in the USA and elsewhere.

Here is an ICAO news release from 1970 regarding traffic figures.

While the figure of 386 million passengers is significant, the real measure is the RPK's or Revenue passenger kilometres carried out which takes into account both aircraft capacity and the distances flown, to give the true indication, or volume of air traffic in a certain year.

In 1970 the RPK figure was 465,000 million RPK's. In 2011 that had increased to 5000,000 million, including a 53% since 2000. This graphic was drawn from ICAO's forecast document.


The RPK figure is forecast to more than double in the next 20 years.

In World Trade Center 7, beam K3004 is thought to have expanded, and pushed Girder A2001 to the west. There is some dispute as to how much it could have expanded.

NIST NCSTAR 1-3E was focused on the WTC1/2 steel, however the findings regarding thermal expansion were carried over to the WTC7 investigation.

20C to 600C is 293K to 873K

Integrating the above polynomial over that range. (0.0000073633 +0.000000018723*x-0.0000000000098382*x^2+1.6718E-16*x^3) where x from 293 to 873

This is a fake story. It's from the satirical (joke) site Internet Chronicle, which posts "almost believable" stories in the same vein as The Onion, but with a focus on conspiracy theories.

Here's the original joke story: (

The iron microspheres (as evidence for thermite) were debunked years ago, but they keep coming up. The bottom line is:

  • Iron Microspheres form from condensed vaporized iron or from molten iron
  • You can melt iron by igniting it with a Bic lighter, if the pieces of iron are thin enough.
  • There are several other sources of iron microspheres
  • Iron microspheres were expected in the WTC dust
Here's an iron-rich microsphere found by the USGS, who did not consider it at all suspicious: (it's about 30µm, 0.03mm, in diameter)

If you ignite some steel wool with a hydrocarbon flame, then you get lots of iron spheres, some of the same size as these microspheres. Note this is not from the flame melting the steel, but from the steel itself burning, and melting itself. This is only possible with a sufficiently large surface...
