To some, it sounds like a giant flute played off pitch. To others, faulty car brakes or a steam whistle echoing in the distance.
Descriptions of the shrill noise piercing quiet nights in Forest Grove, Ore., run the gamut, but those who’ve actually heard it seem to agree on one thing — it’s awful.
“It’s definitely a horrendous noise,” Dave Nemeyer, fire marshal of Forest Grove Fire and Rescue told ABC News. “I have no idea what the noise is. [The resident] described to us that it was coming from the middle of the street. To me, it sounds like the sound of train tracks, that metal screeching sound, but there are no train tracks near her home … so that’s obviously ruled out.”

Residents began hearing the strange noise, which lasts anywhere from a few seconds to several minutes, several weeks ago, according to ABC affiliate KATU. It is loud enough, residents say, that it rouses them from sleep and drives pets crazy.
Paula Lynch told NBC affiliate KGW that she managed to record the sound on her cellphone earlier this month. She said it was the third time she’d heard the noise that week.
“My first instinct was that it was a gas line issue and there might be an explosion,” she said.
Worried about an impending disaster, Lynch reported the sound to police, who told the station that they’re also baffled.
“There would be a city ordinance violation if somebody was creating a noise like this, that late at night, on purpose to annoy people,” said Forest Grove Police Capt. Mike Herbs. “At this point, we don’t have information that would lead us to believe that’s the case.”
“It sounds to me like some kind of release valve or some kind of pipe that’s under pressure,” he added. “We’ve had different suggestions from folks that it’s an alien mother ship or a warning sign of something to come.”
Police aren’t the only ones at a loss to explain the noise. Both Northwest Natural, a gas company, and Forest Grove Public Works claim their agencies aren’t responsible for the sound, according to KGW.
After investigating, the fire department determined the sound was not coming from a commercial fire or smoke alarm, the station reported. The department, KGW noted, does not believe the noise poses a public health risk.
Authorities told KATU that the nearest train track dead-ends across town and is rarely used.
Some residents wondered whether the sound could be coming from the brakes of a logging truck, but its duration and intensity are different, according to the station. There’s also the fact, KATU noted, that nearby roads are flat.
Although some have speculated that the sound is coming from a ruptured natural gas line, KATU reported that the lines are buried underground, making them an unlikely possible source. An unnamed spokesperson for Northwest Natural told KATU that a leaking gas line would sound like a tea kettle and that residents would smell gas.
Another possible culprit, residents have speculated, is the Department of Forestry. The sound appears to originate in the agency’s vicinity, but after crews there tested their equipment on Tuesday, they concluded it wasn’t originating on their property, KATU reported.
KATU asked Tobin Cooley, an audio expert, to weigh in. After measuring the noise with a sound meter, he told the station that it was a highly unusual case.
“It sounds like some sort of pressurized gas or air through a fitting or valve or something,” he said. “It’s not steady state, and you can’t predict when it’s going to happen. Those are all interesting sound features.”
Cooley noted that high-pitched tones don’t travel far, suggesting the sound is originating near the residents who are hearing it.
“The best instrument by far is the human ear,” he added. “If you can track it down and experience it, with measurements and your ears, you can find the source.”

Oregon man in possession of 13 million gallons of illicit rainwater sentenced to jail
An Oregon resident with 3 massive man-made ponds on his property is sentenced to 30 days in jail after being found guilty (again) of collecting rainwater without a permit.

I’ve taken a look at some mighty impressive rainwater collection systems in the past, but it appears that Gary Harrington, 64, takes the proverbial cake when it comes to hoarder-esque rainwater collection activities: over the years, the Oregon resident has built three massive reservoirs — in actuality, they’re more like proper man-made ponds — on his 170-acre property on Crowfoot Road in rural Eagle Point that hold roughly 13 million gallons of rainwater and snow runoff. That’s enough agua to fill about 20 Olympic-sized swimming pools.
Of course, it boggles the mind as to what a single man needs that much rainwater for. One would assume that Harrington is reusing it both for irrigation purposes and for non-potable indoor use as well, which, unlike in many states, is permitted in Oregon. But 13 million gallons?
Apparently Harrington, who has stocked at least one of the reservoirs with largemouth bass and built docks around it, believes that his watery stash is a much-needed necessity when wildfires pop up in the area.
“The fish and the docks are icing on the cake,” Harrington tells the Medford Mail Tribune. “It’s totally committed to fire suppression.”
The bigger story here is that rainwater collection is indeed kosher in Oregon, provided that you’re capturing it from an artificial, impervious surface such as a rooftop with the assistance of rainwater barrels. But an extensive reservoir set-up complete with 10- and 20-foot-tall dams is verboten without the proper, state-issued water-right permits — after all, Oregon law dictates that water is a publicly owned resource — and Harrington did not possess said permits.
And so, after a protracted battle with Oregon’s Water Resources Department, Harrington was convicted of nine misdemeanors and sentenced to 30 days in jail, slapped with a $1,500 fine, and ordered to breach his dams and drain his ponds. After the sentencing in late July, Harrington surrendered himself to authorities late last week and began his stint at the Jackson County Jail.

Apparently, once upon a time, the state did indeed allow Harrington — code name: “Rain Man” — to collect water in his reservoirs. However, officials reversed their decision the same year, 2003, that the three permits were issued, citing a 1925 law that states the city of Medford holds all exclusive rights to “core sources of water” in the Big Butte Creek watershed and its tributaries.
Despite withdrawal of the permits, Harrington kept on defiantly collectin’ under the belief that the laws did not apply to his situation, adamant that the water was coming strictly from rain and snow melt and not from tributaries flowing into the Big Butte River as officials had claimed. Harrington tells CNSNews.com: “They issued me my permits. I had my permits in hand and they retracted them just arbitrarily, basically. They took them back and said, ‘No, you can’t have them.’ So I’ve been fighting it ever since.”
It gets even more messy with accusations of water diversion and a three-year bench probation issued against Harringon in 2007. In that case, Harrington plead guilty and agreed to open up the gates of his reservoirs only to close them back up again shortly thereafter.
Oregon Water Resources Department Deputy Director Tom Paul tells the Medford Mail Tribune: “Mr. Harrington has operated these three reservoirs in flagrant violation of Oregon law for more than a decade. What we’re after is compliance with Oregon water law, regardless of what the public thinks of Mr. Harrington.”
Paul elaborates to CNSNews.com:
A very short period of time following the expiration of his probation, he once again closed the gates and re-filled the reservoirs. So, this has been going on for some time and I think frankly the court felt that Mr. Harrington was not getting the message and decided that they’d already given him probation once and required him to open the gates and he refilled his reservoirs and it was business as usual for him, so I think the court wanted — it felt it needed — to give a stiffer penalty to get Mr. Harrington’s attention.
Lots more on this unusual and dramatic, err, rainstorm of a case — a case that’s morphed into a battle not so much over rainwater and reservoirs, but over property rights and government bullying — at the Medford Mail Tribune and CNSNews.
The alleged wet bandit tells CNSNews.com: “When something is wrong, you just, as an American citizen, you have to put your foot down and say, ‘This is wrong; you just can’t take away anymore of my rights and from here on in, I’m going to fight it.”
Is Harrington deserved of his folk hero status? Or is he a straight-out theft? Lots of opinions on this one … what’s yours?

Scientific evidence now exists which indicates the presence of “toxic coal combustion fly ash” in the Earth’s atmosphere. The following abstract excerpt comes from an article recently published in the August 11th issue of the peer-reviewed International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health under the title:
Evidence of Coal-Fly-Ash Toxic Chemical Geoengineering in the Troposphere: Consequences for Public Health
“The widespread, intentional and increasingly frequent chemical emplacement in the troposphere has gone unidentified and unremarked in the scientific literature for years. The author presents evidence that toxic coal combustion fly ash is the most likely aerosolized particulate sprayed by tanker-jets for geoengineering, weather-modification and climate-modification purposes and describes some of the multifold consequences on public health.”
What makes these scientific revelations so explosive is the source — J. Marvin Herndon, Ph.D. Not only has the highly experienced and well-regarded scientist utilized rigorous scientific methods to arrive at his firm conclusions, the research paper has been published in a prestigious, peer-reviewed open access journal.
The International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health has in fact permitted the publication of many highly consequential research papers over the years. However, this particular scientific study on chemical geoengineering is as serious as it gets. Which begs the question: Just who is J. Marvin Herndon?
Marvin Herndon is no ordinary geophysicist. According to his Wikipedia page he has been dubbed a “maverick geophysicist” by The Washington Post. It is his extraordinarily diverse background, deep and broad knowledge base, as well as unique skill set which distinguishes him from his peers. In order to better know the source of this critical information, regarding the ongoing and nationwide covert geoengineering program, PhD Herndon’s wiki-profile is presented below.
J. Marvin Herndon (born 1944) is an American interdisciplinary scientist, who earned his BA degree in physics in 1970 from the University of California, San Diego and his Ph.D. degree in nuclear chemistry in 1974 from Texas A&M University. For three years, J. Marvin Herndon was a post-doctoral assistant to Hans Suess and Harold C. Urey ingeochemistry and cosmochemistry at the University of California, San Diego. He is the President of Transdyne Corporation in San Diego, California. He has been profiled inCurrent Biography, and dubbed a “maverick geophysicist” by The Washington Post.He is most noted for deducing the composition of the inner core of Earth as being nickelsilicide, not partially crystallized nickel-iron metal. More recently, he has suggested “georeactor” planetocentric nuclear fission reactors as energy sources for the gas giantouter planets. as the energy source and production mechanism for the geomagnetic field  and stellar ignition by nuclear fission.
With credentials like these, it will be very difficult for the U.S Federal Government to deny the fact that toxic Coal-Fly-Ash is being systematically used in the now ubiquitous geoengineering program that generates chemtrails on a regular basis around the world. Dr. Herndon’s exceptionally thorough and authoritative paper goes on to state the following about these toxic and/or poisonous components found in the chemtrail aerosols.
“The consequences on public health are profound, including exposure to a variety of toxic heavy metals, radioactive elements, and neurologically-implicated chemically mobile aluminum released by body moisture in situ after inhalation or through transdermal induction.”
The preceding excerpt reveals that whoever lives, works or plays under chemtrailed skies is exposed to a whole range of chemical contaminants and toxic pollutants. Therefore, the longer those individuals (read: every resident of the USA) are exposed to such chemtrail aerosols, which eventually fall down to Earth, the more likely they are to be directly involved in this developing public health disaster.
For those who are unaware of the chemtrail phenomenon, please view the following comprehensive photo-doc. Should any questions or concerns arise about chemtrails or chem-clouds, geoengineering programs or chemtrail operations, please watch the videos posted hereand here.
Health Concerns and Medical Consequences
What is particularly alarming are some of the “Keywords” which are listed in Marvin Herndon’s journal article as follows:
• Autism spectrum disorder (ASD)
• Alzheimer’s disease
• Parkinson’s disease
• Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD);
• Neurological disorders
There are many other medical ailments and health conditions which are caused and/or exacerbated by chemtrail-disseminated coal fly ash and their other toxic contaminants. There is even a quite common illness that is now well-known as Chemtrail syndrome which is further explained at the link below.
According to the research paper coal fly ash is one of four major byproducts of the industrial coal-burning process. Here’s the breakdown:
Industrial coal burning produces four types of coal combustion residuals (CCRs): fly ash, bottom ash, boiler slag, and flue gas desulfurization product (FGDP), i.e., gypsum. Bottom ash is heavy and settles out; coal fly ash, on the other hand, is comprised of micron and sub-micron particles that would go up the smokestack unless captured and stored. Because of its well-known adverse environmental health effects, Western nations now mandate that coal combustion fly ash is to be captured and stored.
The research paper introduction goes on to explain the “potential environmental health risks” that are associated with the many trace elements which are concentrated in the coal fly ashrepository. Some of the more toxic and/or potentially poisonous elements are “arsenic, barium, beryllium, boron, cadmium, chromium, cobalt, lead, manganese, mercury, molybdenum, selenium, thallium, thorium, vanadium and uranium“.
Why the EPA would permit the indiscriminate, systematic and wide-area spraying of coal-fly-ash based aerosols containing arsenic, lead, mercury, thallium, thorium and uranium is anyone’s guess. Such a practice is in direct violation of so many EPA rules and regulations that it certainly defies explanation.
Two Test Methods Were Used That Produced Almost Identical Results
The results of two different test methods, both of which compared the composition of the aerosolized particulates with the known elements from coal fly ash, were not just compelling, they were overwhelming similar. That virtually identical results were arrived at provides an excellent legal basis for class action suits to proceed successfully. Both individuals and families, communities and businesses, which have been injured by ongoing geoengineering operations, now have sufficient scientific evidence to sue the government for both compensatory and punitive damages.
The test results as reported in the abstract are as follows:
The results show: (1) the assemblage of elements in rainwater and in the corresponding experimental leachate are essentially identical. At a 99% confidence interval, they have identical means (T-test) and identical variances (F-test); and (2) the assemblage of elements in the HEPA dust and in the corresponding average un-leached coal fly ash are likewise essentially identical.
Given the information which has been presented thus far, who in their right mind would not want to immediately get to the very bottom of how this extremely hazardous waste product —Coal Fly Ash — is being SPRAYED IN OUR SKIES ON A DAILY BASIS!
Now many will better understand why so many health advocates and environmental activists within the anti-geoengineering movement believe that the geoengineers are truly mad, or clinically insane, or certified crazymakers, or all three. Who but mentally incapacitated geoengineers would ever implement such an exceedingly dangerous and destructive atmospheric engineering program? Across the planet, no less!
This toxic/poisonous chemtrail pollution is now constantly permeating the air that we breathe — all of us. The coal fly ash falls on the water bodies and water courses of the world. Coal fly ash now rains on the crops and the orchards and the grain fields below. The coal fly ashdescends on the forests and fields, the cities and suburbs. The toxic chemtrail brew ends up on our homes, our lawns, our vehicles and our previously organic gardens.
In light of this ever-worsening predicament, one question emerges. How do we stop this slow-motion genocide?
Michael J. Murphy, Producer/Director of Why in the World are they Spraying? is initiating a class action lawsuit which addresses the damaging effects from the ongoing, worldwide geoengineering programs. He has been informed that a scientific, peer-reviewed research paper on geoengineering process and procedure, aerosols and their chemical composition will have sufficient legal weight in a class action lawsuit. This irrefutable evidence will be presented in Michael’s upcoming documentary An Unconventional Shade of Gray.
A class action lawsuit will surely bring to light many of the facts and figures that Mr. Herndon has meticulously ferreted out and confirmed. Through the legal process of discovery the government agencies, military installations, and corporate contractors, which directly participate in this crime against humanity, will be forced to disclose their many closely-held secrets. The following link provides more information about what a class action lawsuit initiative might look like.
The bottom line here is that “NATIONAL SECURITY” will no longer prove to be an acceptable justification for poisoning the skies of the world. That is exactly what the U.S. government and military will invoke — ‘national security’. They are used to getting their way — every day — over many decades by committing their many crimes against humanity in the interest of ‘national security’. The following article presents firsthand testimony about how well this strategy has served their covert geoengineering programs over decades.
Times have now changed … profoundly. Many are now waking up to the serious medical consequences that Dr. Herndon has identified. When the health of all human, animal and plant life have been placed at great risk, something radical must be done about it. Clearly, the implications of the Herndon study are so vast and grave that the American people must respond appropriately.
For starters, perhaps they ought to consider how to peacefully militate — POST HASTE — against all geoengineering programs which spray chemtrails. Doing so “post haste” is highly recommended because of the current international push to legalize geoengineering as a means of combatting global climate change. Should sky chemtrailing become unlawfully legalized by international treaties or legislation, the challenge of undoing those measures will be formidable. As the following article indicates, the upcoming December 2015 climate conference in Paris is an important milestone in their drive to legitimize geoengineering worldwide.
When scientists like Marvin Herndon risk their careers, their reputations and even their lives in order to reveal the details about highly classified geoengineering programs, it’s time to rally around them and support their efforts.
Marvin’s paper is 1 out of only 2 peer-reviewed scientific research papers ever written about the connection between geoengineering and environmental contamination. He wrote them both. Because they are peer-reviewed, they can be used in a court of law with great effect. They can therefore be used in a class action lawsuit.
Marvin is collaborating with other scientists in an effort to get more tests and peer- reviewed papers out into the public domain. In those future studies they will endeavor to prove the direct correlations between chemtrail contaminations and other diseases/ailments/conditions. Aluminum-related illnesses are of particular interest to these courageous investigators. So are other known toxins and their health complications which are now frequently showing up in human populations everywhere.

This chemical geoengineering exposé is so explosive that it will surely come under all sorts of attack. Ad hominem attacks in the form of baseless claims are usually the first type of criticism to be leveled. In the interest of further solidifying Dr. Herndon’s credentials to expertly investigate chemtrail composition, the following excerpt is offered for the reader’s consideration.
“In 2005 Herndon postulated what he calls whole-earth decompression dynamics, which he describes as a unified theory combining elements of plate tectonics and Earth expansion. He suggests that Earth formed from a Jupiter-sized gas giant by catastrophic loss of its gaseous atmosphere with subsequent decompression and expansion of the rocky remnant planet resulting in decompression cracks at continental margins which are filled in by basalts from mid-ocean ridges.”
*Coal Ash is a generic term for Coal Combustion Residuals or CCR. Coal Fly Ash, also known as “pulverised fuel ash” is one of the primary residuals generated by coal-fired power plants. Hence, Coal Ash often refers to any of the 4 main hazardous waste products produced by burning coal, including Coal Fly Ash.
SOTN previously published an essay under the title How The Hard Science PhDs Have Wrecked The World. The subtitle of this scientific and academic commentary is:
The Geoengineer PhDs are especially dangerous and deadly in their doings.
This particular piece deeply penetrates the existing institutional arrangements and pervasive ‘political correctness’ which have created an environment for so many scientists to do things which are relentlessly destroying the biosphere. So many among us have misplaced their trust in exceedingly misguided scientists and their destructive junk science. The aforementioned commentary lays bare how the whole corrupt academic and scientific research system really works. Hence, the unbeliever(s) ignores this crucial info at their peril.
Dr. Herndon has obviously escaped that same system. Not only does he run his own company, he appears to enjoy a high degree of investigative research license. In other words he can investigate serious matters which the system scientists are forbidden from doing. For this reason Marvin Herndon deserves every form of material and spiritual support. Whether it is his stated cause or not, the research mission he has embarked upon is nothing less than saving humankind from certain self-destruction.
After all, what is more essential to life — vital to human existence — than the very air that we breathe … 24/7 … everywhere and anywhere we go?
