Discussion in 'Contrails and Chemtrails' started by Danny55, Apr 21, 2012.
I really hope this lawsuit sees a court room. This is the worst thing they can do for their case.
I'm trying to publicise it and encourage them over at ATS
I just joined in on the ATS discussion. I also added language to both my ChemTrail videos (http://tinyurl.com/cllnq45 and http://tinyurl.com/7g8f7tq) encouraging believers to join the lawsuit.
Ironic that they complain of FB Censorship, yet continue to censor peoples' posts.
I can't wait to see them try! Then maybe it will sink in that they don't understand this subject as much as they believe they do. Then again, maybe it won't.
Yes I really do want them to see this through.
Absolutely. It's the best thing they could do for themselves. It will lead to knowledge they have never possessed before. It will also ease the minds of many people who fear trails of water vapor only because they have been led astray by the tinfoil hat crowd.
Hopefully it will also teach people to thoroughly research a subject BEFORE they take a stand. Which, of course, chemtrails advocates have NOT done.
I think though that if they get to court and it's thrown out, then they won't have enough time to realize exactly what they got wrong, and instead will blame the PTB (Powers That Be). Instead of figuring out what they got wrong, they will simply rail against the corrupt system.
Remember Al DiCicco already has been in front of the council, who had an expert there, but he just ignored it. He still maintains there are unusually high levels of barium in the blood tests, even though on his own Facebook page there's a document the clearly explains the levels were normal.
So I think it's still worth gradually trying to communicate the basic science to them. This is rather difficult as they think this web site is some kind of government shill operation. But if we stick to basic points of science, then we might get through.
Seems that someone up above was correct about the choice of lawyer
I've been waiting for ANY evidence to connect the supposed "programs in the skies" to ANY toxins on the ground...and it just never appears!
There is NOTHING but speculation and assumption connecting anything on the ground with the trails in the sky.
I wish them luck!
Joseph Marman is listed as a Vice President and Director of Environmental Voices, but it's not clear what his actual involvement is. That seems to be run my Deborah Whitman, and his involvement might be just one of association. He's also a member of the Sierra Club, a much more sensible organization. Although he does also seem to be a 9/11 "truther".
Seems a little odd to announce you are going to sue without having the evidence, or knowing who you are going to sue.
Just checked, and it was Firepilot who guessed correctly about the lawyer. You win a weeks supply of facemasks.
The Sierra Club? I'm sure that Ansel Adams was a member.
I think it's pretty likely this lawsuit will stop at this point.
Woohoo, I got something right for once! That was the only lawyer I know of who has been publicly associated with chemtrail groups. He has been trying for a couple of years now to get a lawsuit going.
I think the part though about people who sign on being possibly financially liable for legal fees if they lose, will keep many of them from joining.
Perhaps it might be worth something to send the factual disproofs of the hoax direct to this Joseph Marman chap. If he alone can see reason this whole farce might just be averted.
I'd love to know the hoax had been exposed in open court, believe me. I know they do deserve it in some ways, but as a decent human being, I'd rather these unfortunate people don't have any more of their money squeezed out of them under the banner of this deceitful cause. The 'promoters' may lose some money - and they certainly deserve it - but it's the ordinary 'followers' who will surely be hit worst when the time comes to settle up.
I see your point however, but I think being disproved in court, could prevent more people in the future from falling into the chemtrail hoax.
It's not going to get to court. Marman may be a truther, but he's also asked for some reasonable evidence before moving forward:
It seems very unlikely that they will get such evidence. There have been attempts by chemtrail believers on the Facebook page to try to discuss this, but they have been rebuffed as shills.
It's a shame though, as some rigorous scientific investigation would do wonders to clear up the confusion associated with the chemtrail theory.
You are probably right. I predicted on the first page that would never happen, since chemtrailers who are willing to spend weeks of their life on chemtrail message boards, loathe spending any money on their cause.
I like the idea of them getting a major embarrassment in court, but odds are slim to none that it will ever get there.
ChemTrailers declare Marman part of the conspiracy to suppress the truth in 5, 4, 3, 2 ...
Well May 15 has come and gone. Wonder if they got their evidence?
Well, according to their web site:
They have rejected 8 members, and accepted 2. So I don't think they really are getting much response at all.
I tried discussing some of the science with Robert, but he does not seem too interested. So they are still proceeding along with all the wrong numbers.
These people seem to be well out there
Barium has Magnesium in it????
There's nothing wrong with what you wrote, but please be careful here. Most people have a very limited understanding of chemistry and physics. So while these mistakes are rather extreme, we should still be polite and understanding about it. My mother does not know any more than these folks about chemistry, but I would not describe her as "well out there".
The problem is not really their lack of knowledge, it's their resistance to any suggestion that they might have made a mistake. They don't need educating, they need to be a little more open minded. And of course if you do anything that might insult them, then they will clam up and reject everything you say.
Harsh and direct criticism has its place when discussing people who reach a lot of other people, like Michael J. Murphy (and even then I try to stay as polite as possible). But with statements like "Yes, fires burn hotter due to the Aluminum saturated soil and plant life.", it's not enough to put them up for ridicule. The statement demonstrate a huge mistake in understanding, but it's also going to sound reasonable to other believers with average (i.e. very low) understanding of chemistry.
There are no easy answers, as the explanation of "Yes, fires burn hotter due to the Aluminum saturated soil and plant life." is quite complex (although you could simplify it "that's aluminum oxide, basically sand, which does not burn. Plus there's no evidence that levels have changed."). Keep in mind the goal here is get rid of bunk, not simply find it and put it on display.
Sorry if this comes across as disparaging, Danny55. Your post is pretty innocuous, I've probably done worse myself. It just reminded me of the line we have to tread between constructive and destructive criticism.
[ex=http://www.facebook.com/groups/131756470228822/permalink/332765413461259/]Al DiCicco This lawsuit is not going to work if we dont send some money to the attorney. I spoke to him today and he has not received any checks. So, we have come this far, people say they are sending money, but non received. Hmmmm. 1823 people here and we can't raise $1000 in a week. I did my job.[/ex]
Pretty inevitable really. I think chemtrail believers over-estimate the amount of popular support they have. 1800 likes on Facebook does not translate to 1800 supporters.
While I'm glad that people won't be wasting their time and money, it's also a shame that they never really got to the stage of really getting the scientific evidence together, and trying to get it up to some legal standard. If they did, then many of them would have eventually figured out that all the test results are actually quite normal.
I would have seriously considered sending $100 or so if there was a Paypal account.
Anyway, there is no evil "them" to blame for the stall. Al DiCicco sounds a little bitter; he may realize that big words don't necessarily translate into big activism.
BTW, I think the same applies to the majority of shootdown threats. Although a single serious one would be devastating enough.
They should have set up a https://www.wepay.com/ account, that way people could see how much money was raised. Just expecting people to mail a check into a black hole is vastly unrealistic.
And choosing that insecure funding route out of so many tried and tested methods can make the whole thing seem like a con to a more reserved supporter. So, it looks now like people have joined this Fb page/bandwagon without much conviction; not enough to actually commit to funding it anyway. Those convictions are being publicly tested, and it's becoming clear that their strength - evidenced in monetary support - is in fact insufficient to achieve anything meaningful. People just don't believe enough in this cause/case, and clearly those more centrally involved need think hard about why that is.
Only 10 applications to join is really no better than none as far as a cause like this, which is the point. But also I wonder, with so little in the way of dedicated interest and monetary support, what are their criteria for 'rejection' of that 80%?
I think they feel like they are being targeted - there have been suggestions that Facebook has been doing things to their group (all of which have just been normal Facebook behavior - like not being able to share group posts). They also think that debunkers are paid infiltrators (COINTELPRO) and so are trying to set up a group that will keep them out, so they must be vetting applicants somehow - rejecting those with a whiff of suspicion.
Of course that all just leads to friction, and they won't get many members, and any actual FBI mole is going to get in anyway.
"what are their criteria for 'rejection' of that 80%?"
Seems to be if someone has not been active in either of the 2 facebook groups, or has not posted a lab analysis, then they are not allowed in the 3rd group. There could be more accepted as the 2 names have been posted to remind those 2 to activate their account using their login details.
I see that Al Dicicco's facebook page has been deleted. The group has a new home page:
They also have a new spokesman, Robert M. Forgette, who sems intelligent enough to figure it all out.
I doubt that he will last long, unless he is being deceptive. I sense some instability with him, somehow, and paranoia.
He runs a security device firm in California:
I definitely intend on joining your group, Rob!
Jay, i just checked the group page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/131756470228822/ and it looks like it's back.
I'm watching his video now. Oh yeah, he's paranoid. Talking about trolls, he knows who you (the trolls) are, "Don't ask how i know, but i do", "I pity any troll that gets into my site. I will find out who you are."
Forgette has been doing it for a while. He's intelligent, but is incredibly defensive, and lacks patience. He's got a lot of strange beliefs beyond chemtrails - particularly Morgellons and "smart dust". He does genuinely believe all of it. He's somewhat receptive to science. But I strongly suggest people avoid mocking or provoking him, otherwise he'll just clam up.
They will be at the Consciousness Beyond Chemtrails Conference

If we get a booth, I would like to invite some of our members which have extensive knowledge and are able to stand their ground if they run into the one's whom doubt.

From Al Dicicco's facebook page as of 2hrs ago, it seems a claim will be filed within 2 weeks!
Can't WAIT to see how quickly it gets thrown out. I can almost hear the conspiratorial whining already...
Have they said who exactly they are going to file the lawsuit against?
Think it's either the EPA, the FAA, the Federal Government or the State of California.
