"Oak Ridge currently stores more low-level nuclear waste than any other DOE site in the nation. Oak Ridge facilities have more than 47,000 cubic yards of low-level waste in storage - roughly a third of DOE's total inventory nationwide. 26,937 cubic yards at East Tennessee Technology Park (formerly known as the K-25 site). 11,435 cubic yards at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. 8,907 cubic yards at the Y-12 nuclear weapons plant. Many of the containers are stored outdoors, exposed to the elements."

"The Oak Ridge plant remains an integral cog in the U.S. nuclear defense, producing new parts for existing weapons and recycling old warheads from retired systems. Y-12, of course, is a symbolic location for protests because the plant produced the enriched uranium used in the A-bomb dropped on Hiroshima, Japan, Aug. 6, 1945. Y-12 also serves as the nation's principal repository for bomb-grade uranium."

"It's impossible to determine whether the public, workers and the environment are being protected from hazards. The high-ranking official in Washington said she found a "consistent theme of weaknesses" in the correction plan and thus could not approve it. Roberson indicated she was dismayed and surprised by the Oak Ridge report's inadequacies. "It is unclear how this plan could have gotten through your management system in its current condition," Roberson wrote to Dever. The Oak Ridge report was not only amateurish; it was late - failing to meet the 60-day requirement for approval of a corrective action plan. On Oct. 18, Roberson sent Dever another memo, this time revoking the Oak Ridge manager's authority to approve various safety documents. In years past, whenever there was an Oak Ridge problem (be it a negative audit on storage of nuclear materials or a chemical explosion injuring workers), the federal agency blamed the contractor and took steps to make amends - sometimes dumping the contractor. This time, however, the finger is pointing directly at DOE's Oak Ridge leadership."

"Which of the government's Oak Ridge nuclear facilities - the K-25 uranium-enrichment complex, Oak Ridge National Laboratory or the Y-12 nuclear weapons plant - posed the greatest hazard to workers? But, for whatever reason, the federal agency has not coughed up money for a screening program to identify health problems among thousands of retired laborers at the Y-12 nuclear weapons plant and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. K-25 employees came forward last year with evidence that cross-connections in the water pipelines created the potential for contamination of drinking-water supplies. Several activists are pushing for a criminal investigation and want to halt DOE's current demolition of buildings at K-25 until the hazards have been fully evaluated (the world's largest single building contaminated by radioactive dust)."

"Oak Ridge National Laboratory is a world campus, and the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11 and security-related fallout from those tragedies will not change that. ORNL confirmed that about 1,500 foreign nationals from 69 countries - Argentina to Zaire - currently are visiting the Oak Ridge lab. Thom Mason, the director of the Spallation Neutron Source, the biggest U.S. science project under construction, is not an American citizen. "I only got my green card in July,'' Mason said. More than 100 foreign nationals are full-time members of the scientific staff, and those numbers, of course, do not reflect the number of foreign-born scientists and engineers who have become naturalized U.S. citizens over the years. Recent statistics compiled by the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education show that 40 percent of the graduate degrees in nuclear engineering at U.S. institutions were awarded to foreign nationals. Similar stats are found across the sciences and math and computing."

"Frank Akers, who heads the national security directorate at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, is on special assignment to Washington working on Homeland Security. Akers reportedly is working in the office of John Gordon, director of the National Nuclear Security Administration, and he's expected to remain there for three or four months. Everything is hush-hush. "I cannot discuss his assignment," lab communications chief Billy Stair said. Akers, it appears, would be qualified for many missions. Besides being an associate director of ORNL and coordinating the Oak Ridge work for the Department of Defense, he has headed the advanced technologies effort at the Y-12 nuclear weapons plant (managed by British WXT). He is a retired brigadier general in the U.S Army, having held prominent posts - such as chief of staff for the XVIII Airborne Corps at Fort Bragg (the terrorist training camp for the planet Earth). The laboratory has provided the U.S. Department of Energy with a rather lengthy list of technologies that may be of help in the war against terrorism. Multiple staff meetings were held in October to discuss concepts and research projects of potential use to the campaign. "Those are lists of technologies that are capable of dealing with some of the concerns - be that rapid detection of anthrax to better tracking of individuals around the country," Madia said. Several areas in the central part of the research complex are still off-limits because of the legacy of radioactive contamination from nuclear work in the 1940s, '50s and '60s."

"The biggest science project in the United States is edging ever closer to reality at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Scientists around the world are already planning experiments for the Oak Ridge facilities. "I envy the younger scientists who are going to be able to use it and exploit it," Nobel Laureate Clifford Shull remarked at the project's groundbreaking ceremonies in late 1999. Former Vice President Al Gore, who was a key supporter in the SNS startup period." (Perhaps that's why Al Gore moved the hell out of Tennessee and to the terrorists' home of preference, Boston's Harvard University, where 20 Bin Laden's live and provide scholarships to study Saudi Arabia and where the airliners took off on their kamikaze missions on 911.)

"ORNL was prepared. Indeed, a lot of planning was done weeks -- even months -- in advance of Science magazine's publication of research results, and all because of two words: cold fusion. By no means was the ORNL director trashing or diminishing the research conducted by Rusi Taleyarkhan and colleagues at Oak Ridge, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and the Russian Academy of Sciences. There is a lot of important science taking place currently at Oak Ridge -- on climate change [HAARP and/or Chemtrails], functional genomics, superconductivity -- but it typically doesn't require his hands-on care or direction, Madia said."

The EPA advisors are reviewing the summary of scientific literature about fine particle soot compiled by EPA scientists. This review is a preliminary step as EPA re-examines its current health standards. Six dozen new short-term studies from across the U.S. and around the world "confirm the effects of particle pollution on premature mortality, hospital admissions, emergency department visits, doctor's visits, respiratory and cardiac effects. New studies demonstrate that infants and children, especially asthmatic children, the elderly, and those with heart or lung disease are especially sensitive to the effects of fine particle pollution. DeLucia also called on EPA to set a meaningful new "coarse" particle standard to prevent health damage from bigger, but still respirable, chunks of soot.

Tennessee counties that received an "F" air quality grade include:

Anderson, Blount, Davidson, Hamilton, Haywood, Jefferson, Knox, Lawrence, Putnam, Rutherford, Sevier, Shelby, Sullivan, Sumner, Williamson, and Wilson.

    Verbatum from the declassified portion of the Report:

    "Conservative estimates indicated that 35,000 pounds of uranium were released into the air from all sources. 4,300 pounds of uranium a month was unaccounted for or released to the environment. ETTP operates an incinerator which handles radioactive, hazardous and uranium-contaminated PCB wastes. ETTP generated transuranic elements (isotopes with atomic numbers greater than uranium) such as neptunium-237 and plutonium-239; fission products such as techneitum-99; PCBs; toxic metals; and volatile organic compunds such as trichloroethene (TCE) and present risk to the public. Some contaminants migrated outside the Plant boundary. Waste disposal practices included direct discharge of radioactive materials, toxics and caustics to holding ponds and storm drains, and incineration and burial. Reports reflected a number of spills of nitric and hydrochloric acids, in one case 200 gallons. Numerous large fires and explosions were reported. It is impossible to characterize exposure because of inadequate surveys and incomplete records. Records indicate that as contamination levels increased, exposure controls were reduced. Contamination above limits was commonly detected. Operations have released a variety of contaminants into the environment, such as burial of low-level and hazardous waste in landfills and dumping directly into the Clinch River. Large amounts of contaminated equipment and scrap material were sold at public auction. Tens of thousands of pounds of flourine and hydrogen flouride were emitted annually. The investigation team identified over 600 releases of uranium hexaflouride, and a large, visible cloud was released outside a building. Exposure to 'intense clouds' of uranium powder dusts was prevalent and resulted in intense beta radiation fields. Each month dozens or workers were identified as having exposures exceeding plant control guides. Extensive contamination was prevalent. Recordsindicate many air samples in excess of Plant Allowable Limits. Both chemical and radiological materials have routinely been discharged from the Plant, from both sanitary sewage and storm water systems and materials were directly discharged in Mitchell Branch and Poplar Creek. One million pounds of blowdown water was discharged a day. The hexavalent chromium concentration in Poplar Creek is equal to the level regulated by the site's permit. Contents of 500 uranium hexafloride and other gas cylinders were emptied into the unlined holding pond by shooting the cylinders with high-powered rifles, and this pond discharged into Poplar Creek. Records confirm that radiation exceeded drinking water standards. Over 80,000 drums of pond sludge with low concentrations of uranium were generated in 1988. Ventilation was modified to discharge mercury fumes above the roof. Elevated levels of mercury were found in urinalyses. Records refer to the recovery of tons of mercury. Traps would blow out spilling mercury on the floor. Air sampling in the 1990s identified mercury levels several times the Threshold Limit Value. Continual and volumnous process leaks (blowoffs) were vented to the atmosphere. 4,300 pounds of uranium hexaflouride were released per month. Losses were excessive. 10,000 union grievances were filed and management disputed grievances concerning safety in favor of economic considerations. Many storm drains were not moitored before 1992, and routine and accidental wastes have adversely impacted the environment and the aquatic habitat. Weaknesses in the sampling and monitoring of air pollutant emissions raise concerns regarding the accuracy of public dose and exposure calculations. Environmental radiological protection and surveillance are not compliant with DOE Order. Few records reflect involvement by the Atomic Energy Commission in investigations of serious events. Levels of airborne radioactivity were as high as 35,800 dpm/ft3, and far exceeded the PAL of 2 dpm/ft3. [That's radiation levels over 17,000 times the maximum limit.] Airborne radioactivity far in excess of normal background levels was measured off-site as far as five miles away. A number of criticality and sub-criticality accident experiments were performed and posed a severe radiation hazard. Bladder cancer rates were seven times higher than for the general population, and stomach ulcers were 6.5 times greater. Inhalation of airborn radiation can increase the risk of future cancer."

    RALPH NADER ON NUKES: "High-level nuclear waste will be hazardous for more than 200,000 years. An Energy Department study found that a severe accident in a rural area could contaminate a 42-square-mile area, require over a year to 'clean up', and cost $620 million."

    Nuclear Safety?


    Potassium Iodide Anti-Radiation Pill - Radioactive Iodine (Radioiodine) is a major radioisotope constituent of both nuclear power plant accidents and nuclear bomb explosions and can travel hundreds of miles on the winds. Even very small amounts of inhaled or ingested radioiodine can do grave damage as it will always concentrate, and be retained, in the small space of the thyroid gland. Eventually giving such a large radiation dose to thyroid cells there that abnormalities are likely to result, such as loss of thyroid function, nodules in the thyroid, or thyroid cancer. (Each year 12,000 Americans discover they have thyroid cancer, though from various assorted causes, and about 1000 die from it.) Chernobyl has shown, and continues to reveal, that the greatest danger from radioiodine is to the tiny thyroid glands of children. Researchers have found that in certain parts of Belarus, for example, 36.4 per cent of children, who were under the age of four at the time of the accident, can expect to develop thyroid cancer. Also, "This increase in incidence has been documented up to 500 km from the accident site." Health experts now estimate that the greatest health concerns affecting the largest number of people from a nuclear accident, or nuclear bomb explosion(s) anywhere in the world, will likely be from the release of radioiodine that is then carried downwind. The good news is that taking either Potassium Iodide (KI) or Potassium Iodate (KIO3) before exposure will saturate (fill up) a persons thyroid gland with safe stable iodine to where there is no room for later uptake of radioactive iodine. Once the thyroid is saturated, then any additional iodine (radioactive or stable) that is later inhaled or ingested is quickly eliminated via the kidneys.

    What happens if a suicide bomber drives a jumbo jet into one of America's 103 nuclear power reactors? What happens if a fire fed by thousands of tons of jet fuel roars through a reactor complex--or, worse, through the enormous and barely-protected containment pools of spent nuclear fuel found at every such plant?

    These questions are even more obvious and urgent than they may seem at first glance. Russian television reported on Wednesday: "Our [Russian] security services are warning the United States that what happened on Tuesday is just the beginning, and that the next target of the terrorists will be an American nuclear facility." [See] Meanwhile, eight years ago, in the wake of the 1993 World Trade Center bombings, the terrorists themselves wrote to the New York Times to warn that nuclear attack would follow.

    That letter, judged authentic by federal authorities, talked of "150 suicide soldiers" who would hit "nuclear targets." As if to drive home the point, those same terrorists had trained beforehand at a camp in Pennsylvania thirty miles from Three Mile Island. US law enforcement had them under surveillance at least a month before they struck--and at one point observed them conducting a mock assault on an electric power substation. That very same weekend, a man later judged to be mentally unwell drove his station wagon through the security barriers at Three Mile Island and parked next to a supposedly secured building. [See]

    There are nuclear power plants outside many urban areas. There's Indian Point on the Hudson River, some twenty-five miles northwest of New York City; Limerick Plant some twenty miles outside of Philadelphia; Calvert Cliffs, forty-five miles from the nation's capital; and a handful of nuclear plants ringing Chicago, from Dresden to Braidwood. A terrorist strike at any such plant could not bring about a nuclear explosion--but there are a number of scenarios that would spread deadly radiation clouds across, in the NRC's famous phrase, an area the size of Pennsylvania. On top of the tens of thousands of eventual radiation-driven deaths, there is the mass panic such an attack might cause. And if we can clean up and rebuild after the World Trade Center bombing, a radiological attack would force us to write off huge swathes of land as national sacrifice areas.

    So given the extraordinary events of this week, we're taking extraordinary measures to protect our nuclear plants, right?

    Well, in France, the defense minister has stationed troops around nuclear power plants... But in America, not much is being done.

    The Nuclear Regulatory Commission on Tuesday in a statement said it had "recommended" that plants tighten security. Bob Jasinski, an NRC spokesman, said Friday that nothing had changed since then. (What about Wednesday's Russian TV report? Or the repeated insistence by authorities that there are more terrorist cells out there?) The NRC also says there have been "no credible general or specific threats to any of these [nuclear] facilities"--and does not seem interested in reconsidering the specific and, it now seems, very credible 1993 threats of 150 suicide soldiers headed the NRC's way.

    Security Already "Privatized"

    David Orrik, a former US Navy Seal, until recently ran a program that tested the security at civilian nuclear plants by organizing mock attacks against them. His exercises don't sound terribly ambitious--they pit a small team, moving on foot, against a nuclear plant security force that would be warned six months in advance of the test. Even so, half of all plants tested failed--and in at least one case, Orrik's men were able to simulate enough sabotage to cause a core melt. And remember, these tests did not simulate, say, the Osama bin Laden truck bombs so successful in demolishing US embassies in Africa in 1998.

    The nuclear industry did not enjoy failing, and did not enjoy shelling out hundreds of thousands of dollars to prepare for Orrik's tests--or to install security upgrades as the penalty for not passing. So it began to lean on the NRC to gut the program. This fall, the NRC is doing just that--phasing out Orrik's program in favor of one in which nuclear power plants will carry out "self-assessments." An NRC spokesman could not say if that plan would now be scrapped, and neither could Orrik. Asked on Friday if NRC was considering any dramatic new security measures, Orrik said he had "no sense at all" what would happen next. "I'm curious myself--will it be a sea change? Or business as usual?"

    Sleeping in a Coffin

    Ironically, one of the first real critical looks at the NRC's decision to let nuclear plants who failed security tests make up their own tests instead appeared in U.S. News & World Report's Monday edition--the day before, well, Tuesday.

    That article quotes a representative of the Nuclear Enterprise Institute--the nuclear power industry's Washington-based trade group--as arguing that nuclear power plants "are overly defended at a level that is not at all commensurate with the risk." On Friday, the NEI's offices were closed. But a statement on the NEI website [] trumpeted the "extensive security measures" insisted on by the NRC, including employee background checks. These are the same background checks that let a man named Carl Drega work at three nuclear power plants throughout the 1990s. Shortly after leaving the third plant, Drega went on a 1997 killing spree that left dead two state troopers, a judge and a newspaper editor. Nor did such background checks blackball a computer programmer who worked at the Maine Yankee nuclear plant and slept in a coffin. That man goes on trial next year for the murder of seven co-workers at a Massachusetts technology company.

    The NEI statement on nuclear plant security states that the reinforced concrete containment buildings that surround US reactors--they are there to prevent the spread of radiation in case of an accident--are "designed to withstand the impact of hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, and airborne objects up to a certain force." In reality, as even the NRC conceded on Friday, reactor containment buildings were not built with the idea of resisting an intentional assault by a modern-day jet--certainly not the monster 767s that crashed into the World Trade Center. The literature is actually strangely silent on this point--so much so that experts interviewed all named the same study, published in 1974 in Nuclear Safety, about probabilities of a plane accidentally hitting a nuclear reactor. That study concluded that some reactor containment structures had zero chance of sustaining a hit by a "large" plane, defined as more than 6.25 tons. The 767s that hit the trade center weighed 150 tons, and were probably moving at top speed.

    In fact, the security vulnerabilities at nuclear plants are so ghastly that almost everyone contacted for this article balked at discussing them in any detail. Paul Gunter, an expert with the anti-nuclear power Nuclear Information and Resource Service (NIRS), recoiled when asked about one possible scenario. "Oh, I don't want to prescribe that. It's too terrifying to imagine." NRC spokesman Jasinski also refused to discuss that scenario. Bennett Ramberg, author of a sixteen-year-old book called Nuclear Power Plants as Weapons for the Enemy: an Unrecognized Military Peril, turned away some questions, saying, "I feel a little discomfort talking about that now." Later Friday, after Ramberg saw Wednesday's report of Pakistani terrorists threatening to target nuclear installations in India, and Tuesday's report of Israel thinking of bombing Iran's nuclear facilities, he felt freer to talk. "The cat's out of the bag," he observed.

    This week's events have changed the national landscape for nuclear power. For starters, they make the industry's gushy talk about the next-generation Pebble Bed Reactor--the reactor so safe it won't even need a containment building--seem ghastly and ridiculous.

    Terrorism also has implications for the Great Waste Debate. Our reactors have for fifty years been piling up vast quantities of highly radioactive spent nuclear fuel. The question of what to do with it all takes on a new urgency. Do we ship it all to a central site like the one proposed for Yucca Mountain--and create a spectacular series of terrorist targets for years, turning trains and trucks of waste into what critics deride as "Mobile Chernobyl"? Or do we keep waste in vast pools on site at reactor complexes--in buildings so frail that David Lochbaum, a nuclear engineer with the Union of Concerned Scientists, says they could be pierced "by a Cessna"--and also keep producing more such waste every day?

    There is no easy answer--which may explain such a sluggish and bleary-eyed response to potential terrorism against nuclear targets: the NRC and others are in denial. Not so long ago, they were arguing that terrorism was not a very scientific probability, and that terrorists had a moral impediment against taking life on a mass scale. So much for that. But if terrorism is real, then a clear-eyed view would suggest nuclear power is done for.

    Nuclear power had been previously discredited on environmental grounds, on public safety grounds and even on financial grounds--don't be fooled, it's immensely costly, even with the public paying for both waste disposal and liability insurance. This week, nuclear power was also discredited on grounds of national security. A country that has nuclear power plants, it turns out, has handed over to "the enemy" a quasi-nuclear military capability.

    We get 20 percent of our electricity from our fleet of enormously expensive and dangerous reactors. Regardless of what our vice president may think, through better energy efficiency and conservation alone we could reduce energy demand to the point of not needing any of those plants--of not even noticing that they had been shut down. The Rocky Mountain Institute, a prominent think-tank on energy matters, argues that "up to 75 percent of the electricity used in the United States today could be saved with energy efficiency measures that cost less than the electricity itself."

    Given that our national will and purpose are now being mobilized, does anyone doubt that, properly channeled, we could succeed in this? Or that along the way we could also establish wind power, solar power and hydrogen fuel cells--and in so doing, completely wean ourselves from the oil of the Middle East? Surely this--and not open-ended war against every nation that has ever stamped bin Laden's passport--is the path to real victory and national security. After all, as Lochbaum of the Union of Concerned Scientists noted, no one this week is calling his colleagues in the alternative energy sectors to ask about terrorist threats to windmills.

    In the meantime, we can follow France's lead and post National Guardsmen around all nuclear facilities. We can restore the NRC's compulsory security drills, and make them even more demanding. Hey, we can even consider anti-aircraft emplacements at each power plant. And we can see how safe that makes us feel when the White House starts trying to punish Afghanistan.

    INTENTIONAL "Chemtrail" air pollution discharged from US military aircraft spraying Radioactive Barium, Aluminum and Anthrax "Simulations"

    WARNING: Like most legislation, this one seems to authorize the opposite of what its name alleges, otherwise known as propaganda or "bait and switch". This one also seems to authorize mind-control technologies. It seems to say: "Let's ban STAR WARS'S Fraud, Waste & Abuse of taxpayer funds," while sneaking the real agenda through a giant loophole.

    Bill Seeks to Prohibit Mind Control Weapons and Chemtrails

    11-Jan-2002 - Steven Aftergood, of Secrecy News, reports that a bill was introduced in the House of Representatives on October 2nd by Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) that would ban chemtrails and mind control weapons in space [BUT NOT BANNED ON EARTH NOR AIR]. Among the weapons that would be banned by the new measure are "psychotronic" devices that are "directed at individual persons or targeted populations for the purpose of mood management, or mind control." This suggests the U.S. military must already have developed classified mood and mind control weapons that can be used in space or that this type of weapon is at least in the planning stage. The bill would also prohibit "expelling chemical or biological agents" and mentions the word "chemtrails." This suggests that, despite being totally noncommittal on the subject, the government has information about chemtrails.

    Chemtrails Are Back--in the Mainstream Press


    The magazine "Columbus Alive" reports that they've received many reports about airplanes "spraying" or leaving behind mysterious "chemtrails" in the sky. When civilian flights were grounded immediately after September 11, this was more noticeable than ever. Some people feared the U.S. was under biochemical attack while others thought we were being inoculated against anthrax or some other biochemical hazard.

    During a flight to Phoenix in early October, a Columbus Alive reporter saw jets spraying everywhere.

    The way to tell the difference between a chemtrail and a normal contrail is that contrails can only form at temperatures below negative-76 degrees Fahrenheit and at humidity levels of 70 percent or more at high altitudes, according to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. And even in most ideal conditions, a jet contrail lasts no more than 30 minutes.

    Chemtrails are large, multiple trails that seem to hang in the sky indefinitely, then slowly feather out and appear to turn into cirrus clouds. Some seem to be sprayed intentionally in geometrically precise grid patterns. Their source and purpose is a mystery that is addressed by websites such as,, and (a skeptical site).

    The official government response is that they're due to increased commercial air traffic. However, in the month after the attack on the World Trade Center, there was very little commercial airline traffic and virtually no private civilian air flights, but contrails could still be seen frequently over many localities.

    One "Columbus Alive" reporter used high-quality binoculars to look at the planes producing chemtrails and saw that Stratotankers and KC-10 Extenders, which are refueling planes, appeared to be used for the spraying. [KC135 Stratotankers are based at McGhee Tyson ANG at Knoxville International Airport.]

    The Canadian "Ottawa Citizen" newspaper reported a "fervor over chemtrails" on May 16 and said, "Ground fallout [from the chemtrails] analyzed in the United States contained carcinogens and bacteria. Coincidentally in the past decade, most jet fuel was re-engineered to reduce fire hazards by adding a long-banned pesticide, which was reportedly also found in gel samples from chemtrails. Also found were toxic micro-fibers, much finer than asbestos."

    Explanations for chemtrails range from their use in military communications applications to scientific experiments designed to control the weather. A scientist working at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, who insists on anonymity, told "Columbus Alive" that public disclosure of the experiments is inevitable and may occur soon. He said that two different secret projects have been conducted. One involved cloud creation experiments to lessen the effect of global warming. The other involved radiation reflection off clouds in conjunction with the military's High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) in Alaska.

    The scientist claims that the two most common substances being sprayed into chemtrails are aluminum oxide and barium stearate. When you see planes flying back and forth marking parallel lines, X-patterns and grids in a clear sky, that's aluminum oxide. The goal is to create an artificial sunscreen to reflect solar radiation back into space to alleviate global warming.

    In some cases, barium may be sprayed in a similar manner for the purpose of "high-tech 3-D radar imaging. The barium can be used for a 'wire' to shoot an electromagnetic beam through to take 3-D images of the ground far over the horizon," according to the scientist.

    Ken Caldeira, a scientist at Lawrence Livermore Labs and one of the country's leading experts on weather modification, conducted the original computer modeling for the use of aluminum oxide to fight global warming. He says, "We originally did this study to show that this program [using massive spraying for weather modification] shouldn't be done," due to negative health effects. Caldeira says there are persistent rumors that the Bush administration will announce geo-engineering weather modification projects this spring, which he sees this as "political suicide."

    Throughout the Cold War, both the United States and the Soviet Union actively investigated the military use of weather modification. In 1958, Captain Howard T. Orville served as the White House's chief advisor on weather modification. He publicly admitted that the military was studying "ways to manipulate the charges of the earth and sky and so affect the weather through electronic beams to ionize and de-ionize the atmosphere."

    Professor Gordon J.F. MacDonald served on the President's Science Advisory Committee in 1966, and frequently published papers on the military use of weather modification. In the book Unless Peace Comes, MacDonald titled a chapter "How To Wreck The Environment." He described the military applications of weather modification including climate change, melting the polar ice caps, techniques for depleting the ozone layer over the enemy, engineering earthquakes, manipulating ocean waves and using the earth's energy fields for brain wave manipulation. "The key to geophysical warfare is the identification of environmental instabilities to which the addition of a small amount of energy would release vastly greater amounts of energy," said MacDonald.

    In the early 1970s, the U.S. Congressional Subcommittee on Oceans and International Environment held investigative hearings on the military's research into weather and climate modification. The committee's findings included detailed plans for creating tidal waves through the coordinated use of nuclear weapons.

    A 1977 United Nations treaty, "The Convention on the Prohibition of Military or Any Other Hostile Use of the Environmental Modification Techniques," prohibited "the use of techniques that would have widespread, long-lasting or severe effects through deliberate manipulation of natural processes and cause such phenomena as earthquakes, tidal waves and changes in climate and weather patterns."

    Patent number 4347284, filed in August 1982, outlines plans to produce a "White covered sheet material capable of reflecting ultraviolet rays" from the sun. Numerous other patents attempted to perfect "aerial spraying of liquids," like patent number 4412654, registered in November 1983, which describes "a laminar microjet atomizer and method of aerial spraying involved the use of a streamlined body having a slot in the trailing edge thereof to afford a quiescent zone within the [airplane] wing and into which liquid for spraying is introduced."

    A patent was filed in July 1986 describing a "liquid propane generator for cloud-seeding apparatus." It reads, "Apparatus is provided for release of liquid propane from the holding chamber of a cloud-seeding rocket." A new and improved "liquid atomizing apparatus for aerial spraying" was filed as patent number 4948050 in August 1990. "The generator is driven from a power take-off from the engine of the spraying aircraft, a drive assembly includes a device for controlling the speed of the generator relative to speed of the engine," it reads.

    The New York Times reported on September 24, 1992 that a Russian company was selling electronic equipment to manipulate the weather in a specific area. The Times wrote that some Russian farmers used the weather-control technology for greater crop yields.

    Shortly afterwards, the Wall Street Journal reported that the Russian company Elate Intelligence Technologies Inc. was selling weather control equipment using the slogan "Weather made to order." They quoted Igor Pirogoff as saying that Hurricane Andrew, which did an estimated $17 billion in damage, could have been turned "into a wimpy little squall" by his company.

    South Africa's Water Resource Commission admitted to being involved in the actual testing of "hygroscopic seeding particles from a seeding flare" in an October 1994 patent, which says, "In a confidential technical trial which was conducted on a small isolated cloud formation above the Nelspriut area in the Transvaal province of the Republic of South Africa, two flares were ignited electrically from inside the aircraft…to produce rain."

    Russia sold former Soviet military weather modification devices to any country willing to pay for them. "Malaysia to battle smog with cyclones" is a headline in the November 13, 1997, Wall Street Journal. "The plan calls for the use of new Russian technology to create cyclones—the giant storms also known as typhoons and hurricanes—to cause torrential rains washing the smoke out of the air," the Journal reported.

    In April, the New York Times reported that Edward Teller, the father of the H-bomb, was "an ardent advocate of the Reagan administration's Star Wars anti-missile plan and, more recently, has promoted the idea of manipulating the earth's atmosphere to counteract global warming."

    The U.S. Air Force told CNN in July that it had broken up a storm over the Atlantic using products made by a company called Dyn-O-Mat. The company's website,, lists "environmental absorbent products" such as Dyn-O- Drought and Dyn-O-Storm. On November 13, a patent was filed outlining a "method of modifying weather." The description says, "The polymer is dispersed into the cloud and the wind of the storm agitates the mixture causing the polymer to absorb the rain. This reaction forms a gelatinous substance which precipitate to the surface below. Thus, diminishing the cloud's ability to rain."

    Ohio resident Dan King describes a rainy day in July when he was driving on a highway and "the rainwater looked like dish soap water on the highway. I thought it was just from the resurfacing, but when I got out in the country I saw the same thing. Piles of suds at the side of the road." The scientist who works at Wright-Patterson says that barium stearate is basically a soap bonded to a metal and could have produced the soapy-looking rain.

    It's no secret that most governments support other kinds of manipulation of nature, such as the development of genetically-modified foods. It's clear the American public is worried about the weather, since many areas of the U.S. have suffered greatly from weather extremes in the past few years. So why are attempts at weather modification being kept secret? It can be assumed that a large percent of the public would be relieved that the government is trying to do something about the problem.

    Perhaps it's because, until very recently, the official word from the Federal government has been that global warming isn't real. Could this be because oil companies and big businesses, who have a large stake in not reducing carbon dioxide emissions, are major contributors to political parties?

    Insight: Three-dimensional, over-the-horizon radars use chemical substances sprayed into the atmosphere to enable them to get detailed, high-resolution images of targets over the horizon, and offer the fastest and most comprehensive imagery of foreign airspace. Post 9-11, such radars would have been in heavy use to guard against further attacks. There is no way to tell the difference between chemicals being sprayed for such radars and chemicals being sprayed for weather modification.

    The Hall of Shame

    The United States has a long history of experimentation, on unwitting human subjects, which goes back to the beginning of this century. Both private firms and the military have used unknowing human populations to test various theories. However, the extent to which human experimentation has been a part of the U.S. Biological Weapons programs will probably never be known. The following examples are taken from information declassified in 1977, and from other private source accounts. Several involve incidents which are still of unknown origins and which cannot be fully explained:


    KNOXVILLE, TENN.—In Y2K, East Tennessee was reported by Metro Pulse's New-York-City owners as "the most consistently Republican-voting region in the United States"—a fact perhaps aided by Knox County Election Commission filing 25,000 votes in trash cans during Selection 2000. In 2001, USA TODAY reported that Knoxville had the worst increase in Ozone-Smog of any city in the United States, per EPA's data in 1999, and was the 5th worst city in the nation. It is also home to the world's garbage and tow-truck cartels, and Modern Mobs on A&E TV reported conviction of 25 of its subcontractors under RICO for membership of New York City's Genovese and Gambino Mafia "families". Knox County ranked in the top 90% in air pollution of dozens of other deadly ingredients. Acid rain is off the pH chart (test kits stop at a deadly 6.0).

    Knoxville/Oak Ridge has a 60+ year history of pollution from nuclear radation and nuke-bomb manufacturing with many SuperFund sites, some with residential housing developments built on top of them. Radioactive garbage is burned in Oak Ridge and in downtown Knoxville, and has been for 60 years. Radioactive scrap metal from nuclear bomb factories in Oak Ridge was melted in downtown South Knoxville (David Witherspoon) for recycling into eating utensils, orthodontic appliances, dental mercury/silver amalgams, exercise equipment, jewelry and many other consumer items. Local anti-nuke opposition Stop the Bombs, Oak Ridge Environmental Peace Alliance, has thus far made zero impact in government policies or "news" coverage, though not through lack of trying.

    Unregulated diesel exhaust pollution combines with other typres of air pollution to form deadly smog, especially on sunny days of temperature inversions. The White and US Department of Defense admitted in 1994 that ORNL intentionally released deadly radiation to test its effects on area residents, in addition to its secret Frankenstein experiments in local hospitals. All this pollution remains trapped in the Tennessee Valley of Death between the Cumberland Plateau and the Great Smokey Mountains.

    "Weather" reports from local "News" corporations do their part to censor the facts of life from ignorant residents of Knoxville, Knox County and surrounding areas. Corporate contractors for ORNL and DOD get rich off our tax dollars while Knoxville News-Sentinel gets a $20-Million welfare check from the mayor to abandon downtown.

    Meanwhile, cancer rates skyrocket and acidosis deaths claim lives of young "healthy" people who just drop dead in their homes after breathing Knoxville's acidic air. This author has known two local people in their 30s die this way in the past 12 months.

    This author has conducted over $10,000 worth of investigative journalism and suffered the standard political retaliations from Powers That Want To Be. This website is an attempt to reverse this diabolical trend.

    Checking ozone levels becoming routine for many 

    By Patrick O'Driscoll 

    As the summer's biggest heat wave swamped much of the USA this month, buzzwords hung in the stifling air. "Spare the Air" in Sacramento. "Ozone Watch" in Houston. "Code Red" in Washington, Baltimore and Raleigh, N.C. "Nozone Action" in Indianapolis. "Smog Alert" in Cincinnati. "Ozone Action" in Chicago, St. Louis and Philadelphia. However you say it, August is the peak of the nation's 6-month ozone "season," when summer heat and sunlight cook tailpipe exhaust, industrial emissions and other vaporous toxins into a lung-searing haze.

    But in an unprecedented number of U.S. cities, residents are tuning in and logging on to local air-quality forecasts and alerts that were unheard of less than a decade ago. For many, monitoring the state of the air they breathe is becoming as routine as checking the daily weather report.

    Joe Scuderi, a computer programmer and musician in Davis, Calif., gets ozone alerts via e-mail from Sacramento's air quality agency. If there's a warning, he curbs his driving and jogging. "I've heard the pollution index on the radio sometimes, too, but they don't do it enough. I think it should be part of everything."

    Diana Stewart, a school district staffer in suburban St. Louis, checks one of the Missouri Department of Transportation's message boards that flash the next day's ozone forecast along busy commuter routes. "I find myself looking for it," says Stewart, a jogger who also gets e-mail alerts. "Is it going to be a 'green' day tomorrow, or a 'yellow' day or a 'red' day? Sucking bad air will scare me away from running, even in the early morning."

    In Chapel Hill, N.C., artist Helen Davis catches the air outlook on her public radio station's morning newscast. "I'm not alarmist about it," she says, "but I think about it. This is the first place I've lived that I was so aware of it."

    Driven by computer models, speedy Internet links and widespread reporting in print and on the airwaves, smog forecasts are seeping into cocktail chat, office water-cooler talk and dinner conversation. "Green Day," you say? We're talking clean air, dude, not the punk rock band.

    Online, smogheads click on time-lapse area maps that swirl in yellow, orange and red to show where the day's ozone buildup is going. Web sites carry the next day's air predictions — and an array of advice both for surviving the smog and helping to reduce it. Thousands of individuals and hundreds of schools, companies and offices get forecasts by e-mail.

    "We're doing it now because people want it," says Richard "Chet" Wayland  of the Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards. EPA's "Air Now" Web site ( posts online ozone forecasts and data for 161 cities in 39 states.

    Even in healthy people, ozone can give lungs the equivalent of a sunburn. High in the stratosphere, the ozone layer shields Earth from solar radiation. But at the ground level, the colorless gas is smog's main ingredient, a concoction of nitrogen oxides (car and industrial exhaust) and hydrocarbon vapors (gasoline, solvents and other volatile chemicals). It can reduce lung capacity and cause shortness of breath, coughing, headaches, nausea and eye irritation. It's worse for children, the elderly, asthmatics and others with lung ailments. Nationally, air pollution costs an estimated $50 billion a year in health expenses.

    Responding to rising public interest, EPA last month added a national ozone forecast map, dotted with virtual stickpins that chart each city by level of alert, to its Web site. Daily forecasting in an understandable format "has turned the tide" in attracting people's attention, Wayland says. "The AQI has made it simple."

    Two years ago, the EPA revamped the way the agency reports how good or bad the air is. It replaced a system of parts-per-billion calculations with an easier, color-coded Air Quality Index — AQI for short. Green means "good," and yellow is "moderate." Orange is "unhealthy for sensitive groups," red means "unhealthy" and purple is "very unhealthy."

    For consumers of the new flood of daily air data, it's simply gold

    Broadcast outlets and some newspapers, including USA TODAY, now deliver the ozone outlook for dozens of cities. In St. Louis,& KMOV-TV runs a "Green Day Giveaway" with prizes on days when& the air level is "good." Sacramento's KCRA-TV displays animated ozone maps that rival the flashy "Pinpoint Doppler radar" visuals that anchor "WeatherCast3." They call them "Ozone Movies." The Internet presence of air data has exploded. Besides EPA's site, many states and some cities have forecast Web pages and links, from& Sacramento ( to Chicago ( Ditto for media outlets, from cable's The Weather Channel ( to the "Weather Underground" site (, which is popular with meteorology geeks. Webcam sites such as Camnet ( show continuous views of the air in urban and scenic locales from New York to Denver. EPA, meanwhile, is talking with America Online, the nation's largest Internet provider, about posting air quality data on AOL members' local home pages.

    In several cities, local air agencies, the American Lung Association ( and others offer free forecasts and warnings via e-mail, pager, fax and digital cellphone. School coaches subscribe for up-to-the-minute guidance on whether to allow teams and marching bands to practice. Day-care center nurses do the same to protect kids at play, especially those with asthma.

    Educational programs aim to indoctrinate children so that curbing bad-air behavior will be second nature to them as adults.

    Houston's "Andy the Airedale," a cartoon dog that teaches the AQI colors to kindergartners and first-graders, has spread to several other cities. The Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality District just created Save Planet Polluto, a slick computer adventure game on CD-ROM and the Internet (, in which "air cadets" in grades 4-8 learn about air pollution and clean up the home skies of the "Airidians" and alien cities such as Lung Angeles, El Gaso and NOxVille. Sacramento also hosts an online pollution simulator, Smog City (, where visitors can compute different AQIs by manipulating levels of urban population, traffic, weather and industry.

    In Kentucky, mechanical engineering professor Geoffrey Cobourn of the  University of Louisville built and put online his own computer model to forecast ozone pollution ( A local TV weathercaster and air agencies in three cities now use it. So do his students, for class papers on air pollution forecasting.

    Next up? Personal air forecasts. Next spring, the commercial meteorology service Weather Central will begin beaming custom-tailored air quality reports in a free "Personal Microcast" via e-mail, pager or cellphone. EPA's national ozone maps are fine, says Weather Central President Terry Kelly, whose service already sends individualized weather data to subscribers in 50 of the nation's 200 TV markets. "But for their own health and activity needs, people need a lot more detail than that."

    EPA's Wayland says that though air quality forecasting "is still where forecasting for weather was maybe 40 years ago," it's improving. This fall, EPA will begin test forecasting for fine particulates, the miscroscopic particles that color smog and haze and pose a more serious threat to the lungs.

    An information revolution is in the air

    The quiet revolution in forecasting relies mostly on computers and modems. Dozens of air testing stations that once had to be checked in person now can report automatically in "real time," updating at intervals from a minute to an hour. Computer models extrapolate the numbers into the maps, charts and lists to be posted on Web sites. Air agencies can instantly issue new warnings as ozone pollution worsens or cancel alerts if air quality improves. 

    Despite these advances, getting people actually to change their air polluting habits is still elusive. Houston, Sacramento, Indianapolis and other cities do periodic surveys to measure the effect of their anti-pollution campaigns. All typically report greater awareness of ozone warnings and common steps to curb bad air: limiting car trips, taking the bus, refueling cars and mowing lawns in the evening.

    But most register no major movement to alter behaviors. "People are not  going to do anything that is inconvenient," says Anne Mrok-Smith of the  Houston-Galveston Area Council, an air quality group. 

    Houston became the butt of late-night TV jokes when it had the worst ozone  pollution in America in 1999, beating even perennial front-runner Los  Angeles. But because its air doesn't carry as many of the tiny particulates that  make smog brown and hazy, Houston has trouble convincing residents there's  an air problem. "The days that we have the worst ozone are usually just the  most beautiful days," says Lily Wells, the council's chief air quality planner. 

    L.A. cuts smog by 75% in 15 years

    Ironically, air officials in Los Angeles don't promote public awareness with  "Spare the Air" campaigns. Smog has been such an everyday issue in L.A. for  so long that "constantly urging people to carpool or do this or that might get  old fairly fast here," says Bill Kelly of the South Coast Air Quality  Management District. L.A.'s strategy — stricter regulation of cars, industry,  consumer products and other pollution sources — has cut smog by 75%  since 1985. 

    During the 1990s, air quality improved in most of the nation's more than 260  metropolitan areas. But of the 34 areas with increasing pollution, most were  failing in ozone. Ozone also was the culprit for most of the bad air days in the  94 largest metro areas in the '90s. The American Lung Association's "State of  the Air" report, released in May and covering 1997-99, calculated that more  than 141 million Americans live in areas that got an "F" for ozone pollution. 

    Which is why, like most air quality officials, Kerry Shearer of the Sacramento  air district has few illusions that today's greater awareness will eliminate air  pollution any time soon. "Think how long it took for the anti-smoking effort,"  Shearer says. 

    "We've been at it since 1989, but it's going to take a while," he says. "Not  everybody is going to change. Not everybody agrees there is a problem."

    The EPA wants more data on pollution possibly linked to health problems in small  communities near the government's Oak Ridge reservation. 

    A letter had been sent to the Department of Energy outlining complaints received from  the Coalition for a Healthy Environment. It asks for DOE's Oak Ridge office to devise a  plan to address contamination issues. 

    Coalition member Harry Williams says the group isn't happy with the thought of DOE  leading the investigation. He would prefer the EPA take an independent look at the  situation. 

    Among the concerns are Roane County communities located along the Clinch River  and near a former uranium-enrichment plant. It's still the site of an incinerator that  burns radioactive and hazardous wastes.

    Advisory Committee on Human Radiation Experiments (ACHRE)

    US government at ORNL conducted secret Nazi experiments on Tennesseans as human guinea pigs into deadly hazards of nuclear radiation.

    ACHRE was created by President Clinton on January 15, 1994 to investigate and report on the use of human beings as subjects of federally funded research using ionizing radiation. ACHRE constructed a gopher site to provide public electronic access to information about its activities. Created by Executive Order and subject to the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), the Advisory Committee was obligated to provide public access to its activities, processes and papers. The Advisory Committee believed, however, that the nature of the subject it investigated and the human stories that comprise it placed on it a special responsibility to disseminate as broadly as possible the results of its investigations, the implications of that history for our own time, and its best judgment concerning the rights and responsibilities of those involved.

    The National Security Archive obtained the data from the ACHRE gopher when the Advisory Committee was dissolved in October of 1995. The information acquired from the original internet site includes:

    One-time Plutonium Bioassay Service for Nuclear Test Personnel Review Program

    The Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) (into which the Defense Special Weapons Agency consolidated) is the Executive Agent for the Nuclear Test Personnel Review (NTPR) Program, which serves veterans who participated in U.S. atmospheric nuclear tests or with the occupation forces of Hiroshima or Nagasaki, Japan. Since its inception in 1978, the NTPR Program has identified approximately 400,000-plus Department of Defense (DoD) personnel who participated in these activities. The primary purpose of the NTPR Program is to provide participation data and radiation dose information to veterans.

    DTRA made available a voluntary, one-time, limited plutonium bioassay test for eligible veterans in July 1998. Congress authorized funding for the testing in the National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year 1998. The funding was sufficient to test 100 eligible veterans. Eligible veterans are those who are confirmed participants of U.S. atmospheric nuclear tests or the occupation forces of Hiroshima or Nagasaki, Japan. The NTPR Program has received commitments for all the bioassays that can be offered.

    NTPR internal dose reconstructions are prepared following Title 32, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 218. The Government Printing Office has an Internet site ( to access the Code of Federal Regulations. If the bioassay result significantly exceeds the plutonium level of the veteran's NTPR-prepared internal dose reconstruction, the veteran's internal dose will be reevaluated. No veteran's internal dose assessment will be lowered as a result of the bioassay test. While it is premature to predict the outcome of all 100 bioassays, initial results of 39 bioassay measurements are consistent with previously compiled NTPR internal dose information. Upon the completion of the 100 bioassay samples, this one-time limited testing will be reviewed to assess its value.

    The Years of Atmospheric Testing: 1945-1963

    From 1945 to 1963 the U.S.A. conducted an extensive campaign of atmospheric nuclear tests, grouped into roughly 20 test "series." After 1963 when the Limited Test Ban Treaty was signed testing for the U.S., Soviet Union, and Great Britain moved underground. France continued atmospheric testing until 1974 and China did so until 1980. This page focuses mainly on U.S. testing because those documents are most readily available.

    A Potrait of an Atomic Bomb Survivor


    In 1945, a technology turned deadly. It could obliterate the world and has been man's scariest nightmare since. Attempts to control it has not been too successful despite more than 150 countries having signed the Comprehensive [Nuclear] Test Ban Treaty, including Malaysia recently. Throughout 1995-1996, a series of nuclear tests were conducted near Mururoa Atoll in South Pacific. Again in May 1998, similar nuclear tests were conducted in the South Asia, further threatening humankind.

    Abdul Razak Abdul Hamid, the only Malaysian to have survived the mass killing as a result of an Atomic Bomb explosion reminds us of his unforgetable experience.

    Beryllium makers not liable for ill effects

    Oak Ridge workers' lawsuits dismissed
    (1 case of 10 cases in class action of thousands of dead or disabled workers)

    By Laura Ayo
    September 7, 2001

    A federal judge's dismissal of a lawsuit against manufacturers and distributors of beryllium used at nuclear weapons plants in Oak Ridge could mean the dismissal of similar lawsuits pending before the same judge, lawyers in the case said.

    "If the other plaintiffs asserted similar claims in connection with the same sites, I would think if it's in the same court and (before) the same judge, I don't see how those claims would not be disposed of the same way," said John Traficonte, litigation counsel for Cabot Corp. of Pennsylvania. "Logically, they would have to be."

    U.S. District Judge James Jarvis' order on Tuesday granting summary judgment to Cabot, Brush Wellman Inc. of Ohio, NGK Metal Corp. of Pennsylvania and Ceradyne Inc. of California dismisses one of 10 lawsuits pending before him.

    In the lawsuit brought in 1994 by Y-12 workers Troy Murphy Morgan, Corky Dean McCarter, Richard Emory Myers Sr. and Kathleen Beatty and in the other nine lawsuits, Y-12 or K-25 workers claim they contracted a debilitating respiratory illness called chronic beryllium disease or tested positive for beryllium sensitivity from being exposed to airborne beryllium dust and fumes while working at the plants.

    "In the remaining cases, there are motions filed similar to the ones filed in Morgan and the court's ruling should apply to those as well," said Jim Wright, who represents Ceradyne.

    But Wright and other lawyers in the case said they'd only be guessing if they tried to conclude what effect the ruling would have on the pending cases. Court records show, however, that a motion for voluntary dismissal of all claims against all defendants in one of the other lawsuits was filed about two weeks after Jarvis indicated he was granting summary judgment in the Morgan case.

    While Jarvis noted his decision in an Aug. 1 order, the order didn't become final until Tuesday when he issued a detailed 42-page opinion. Steve Jensen, one of the lawyers for the workers in the Morgan case and other cases, said he couldn't comment about pending litigation because an appeal is possible.

    Most of the 10 lawsuits complained that the manufacturers and distributors, as well as other similar companies and the federal government, deliberately concealed for decades the true health risks to those who worked with the substance.

    "Because the government and its contractors were the only parties in a position to warn the plaintiffs and protect them from the dangers of beryllium, the defendants had no duty to warn the plaintiffs," Jarvis ruled. "The duty was assumed by the United States and its contractors."

    The judge noted Congress recently enacted a compensation plan entitling plaintiffs and other injured beryllium workers to receive a $150,000 lump-sum payment and medical benefits (part of the Tennessee 2nd Injury Fund for Workers Compensation).

    Jarvis - like a Jefferson County, Colo., jury during a trial in a similar case in June - also rejected the workers' argument that the companies participated in a 50-year conspiracy to keep the actual dangers of beryllium exposure secret. Patrick Carpenter, a spokesman for Brush Wellman, said he received word late Wednesday that the plaintiffs' motion for new trial in the Colorado case had been denied.

    The judge also rejected the workers' arguments on two other issues.

    "We are extremely pleased that the District Court granted this motion," Brush Wellman wrote in a statement. "The Court can be commended for being thorough and reasoned in evaluating our position that Brush Wellman was not responsible for the health and safety of another company's employees."

    The Emperor's New Clothes:
    Thompson Amendment is a farce on the American people

    Ed Slavin - Letter to the Oak Ridger
    June 15, 2000

    The recent Senate Floor Amendment by Senator Thompson does not meet the reasonable expectations of sick Oak Ridge workers and residents for meaningful compensation legislation. On June 10, by E-mail, I asked Senator Thompson 50 questions about it: I have not received any substantive response.

    Sadly, U.S. Senator Fred Dalton Thompson, on advice from DOE, passed an inept compensation bill, Senate Amendment 3250 to S.2549 does not pass the laugh test.

    Senator Thompson has staged a farce for his colleagues and the American people. The Thompson-DOE Amendment does not meet minimum standards of Due Process -- set in Black Lung compensation -- as discussed by Oak Ridge lawyer Gene Joyce in his columns. Senator Thompson has dashed reasonable expectations of probity of the sick workers and residents. The Thompson-DOE Amendment does not require:

    1. coverage of all sick workers and residents hurt by DOE toxicants

    2. full funding of lifetime compensation and medical benefits by making the polluters pay

    3. open public hearings with testimony under oath before independent DOL Administrative Law Judges, as provided for Black Lung claims (instead, the Thompson Amendment uses Government doctors to decide claims)

    4. subpoena power and easy access to documents and answers from DOE and contractor managers (incredibly Thompson Amendment requires a separate Federal Court lawsuit to force discovery, after first waiting 180 days!)

    5. appeals to the DOL Benefits Review Board and judicial review by the Court of Appeals, as provided for Black Lung and Longshore workers' compensation claims (Longshore legal precedents that provide penalties for employers who deceive workers about hazards and health)

    6. strict action-forcing deadlines for Government action, with claims being granted if the Government waits too long

    7. payment of full reasonable attorney fees, expert witness fees and other litigation expenses at market rates and a ban on attorney solicitation and percentage contingency fees, as in Black Lung (instead, attorneys would be free to charge contingency fees, reducing the $200,000 lump sum to as little as $100,000 after expenses)

    8. an end to the Federal Tort Claims Act discretionary function exemption for ultrahazardous activities, preserving worker rights to sue

    9. coverage for genetic injuries to spouses, families, children and grandchildren of workers and for injuries caused by dangerous chemicals and heavy metals like cyanide, mercury and hydrogen fluoride

    10. independence of the Department of Energy in deciding compensation and independent lifetime medical care and research, free of influence by DOE and its contractors

    Rather than a fitting memorial to sick workers and residents whose suffering made the Cold War victory possible, Senator Thompson's bill is a snare and a delusion, guaranteed to result in denials and delays. Just what does Senator Thompson think his weak DOE-drafted Amendment is going to accomplish? Is his intention to pass a reform that is not worthy of the word? How many sick workers does Senator Thompson really think will be compensated under this restrictive bill?

    Why does Senator Thompson think that U.S. Government doctors lacking in independence could fairly decide cases? He must not remember the Reagan Administration's efforts to pressure independent Social Security Administration Administrative Law Judges to deny benefits, sending SSA judges those who found too many workers disabled to what Rep. Barney Frank called "remedial judging school."

    In one of my favorite movies, "The Hunt for Red October," a U.S. Navy Admiral (portrayed by none other than veteran character actor Fred Dalton Thompson) said (I must paraphrase): "The Russians don't [go to the bathroom] without a plan." What is Senator Thompson's plan in fronting for and passing such an monstrous piece of DOE-drafted legislation and acting like it is progress? Senator Thompson's fatally flawed Floor Amendment shows no character and makes it appear that Senator Thompson was indeed acting when he promised to help DOE's victims. If the devil is in the details, then the Thompson Amendment is an energumen: it will not silence the victims or meet their needs.

    The U.S. House of Representatives and House-Senate Conference Committee must devise a just compensation system to cover all victims with full benefits, making polluters pay. We don't need another farce, written and run by the same DOE that created the ultrahazardous facilities and covered them up for nearly six decades.

    Southern Alliance for Clean Energy


    The Knoxville Utilities Board (KUB) continues to show their commitment to clean energy by reaching their goal of having 2,000 customers signed up for Green Power Switch by July 4th, 2001. KUB hosted a customer appreciation event to celebrate this accomplishment on August 2nd at Market Square. The event was a huge success and received media coverage from Knoxville's three major TV stations and the Knoxville News-Sentinel. Attendees were given free green snow cones. KUB held this activity both to mark their milestone and to challenge even more people and businesses to participate in the program.

    BUSHIT ALERT: KUB has no "Green Power" and publicly admits it has no intention of inventing any in the future. In fact, it abandoned its ugly Green HQ downtown, selling it for $500,000 to a criminal lawyer next door on Gay Street, to finance its old $15-million boob job and luxury palace on Gay Street, complete with VIP bedroom suites with jacuuzis and numerous VIP dining facilities with monogramed crystal goblets and fine bone china. KUB merely uses its "Green Power" donation scheme as propaganda to siphon money from political hacks extorted to contribute their paychecks in order to please the Republican Skull and Bones mayor and trial lawyer trying to stay one step ahead of impeachment, imprisonment and/or lynching. So mayor Ashe jumped at his promotion from fellow Bonesman George Bush Jr to take his Widenass to help loot Fannie Mae Savings and Loan.

    The Secret Origin of AIDS and HIV

    Dear Friends,  AIDS researchers, publishers, and people against genocide:

    Due to the rapid  deterioration of the AIDS epidemic worldwide, and especially in Africa, I am continuing my 20-year research into the man-made origin of HIV and AIDS. I  have written a new piece with  new research and information on this subject, which I am attaching to this posting.

    The article is entitled:         The Secret Origin of AIDS and HIV Subtitle:           How scientists produced the most horrifying plague of all time -and then covered it up.

    The length of the piece is about 6500 words with documenting references.

    The piece includes the following easy-to-read sections:

    *The Green monkey theory
    *The Special Virus Cancer Program (1962-1977)
    *Biological Warfare, Primate research, and the SVCP
    *The end of the SVCP and the birth of AIDS
    *The pre-AIDS gay hepatitis B experiments (1978-1981)
    *Kaposi's sarcoma, the KS virus, and monkey business
    *Contaminated vaccines, cancer, and emerging viruses
    *The African vaccine connection to the outbreak of AIDS
    *Gallo and Montagnier's theories on the origin of HIV and AIDS
    *"Gay and Straight" strains of HIV and sexual preference

    The Green Monkey  Theory

    Many people  have heard the  theory that AIDS is man-made. Thirty percent of New York City blacks polled by The New York Times (October 29, 1990) actually believe AIDS is  an "ethnic weapon" designed in a laboratory  to infect and kill black people. Some people even think the AIDS conspiracy   theory is more plausible than the African  Green monkey  theory  promoted  by the leading AIDS scientists. Actually, the monkey theory was proven wrong by researchers as far back as  1988, but most AIDS educators  continued to promote it to the public until recently.  In  a media blitz in 1999, the green monkey theory was totally  replaced by the chimpanzee "out of Africa" theory, and the chimp origin of AIDS   was fully accepted by the scientific community.
        A phylogenetic "family tree" of primate viruses (which few people could understand) was presented to prove that HIV was descended from a primate virus in the African bush. Analysis of  virus  genetic data performed by the "supercomputer" at Los Alamos in New Mexico indicated that HIV had "jumped species" from a chimp to a human around the year 1930 in Africa. (Los Alamos is the official home of  nuclear bomb-building, alleged Chinese spies,  and the laboratory which directed secret human radiation experiments  on unsuspecting civilians from the 1940s up to the beginning of the AIDS epidemic.)
         At the  international AIDS  conference held in 2000 in South Africa, one scientist claimed  the chimpanzee  virus  (SIVcpz) was "ancient" and  jumped species as early as  1675 but didn't establish itself in the human population until 1930. This was  dutifully reported by science writer Laurie Garrett, who give all the time-honored reasons for the rapid  spread of AIDS in Africa:  non-sterile needles, non-sterile blood products and widespread promiscuous sexual behavior.

    The Special Virus Cancer Program (1962-1977)

        Conveniently forgotten by  scientists and  medical journalists was the fact that surgeons  had been  transplanting  chimpanzee  parts into human beings for decades. When  Keith Reemtsma died in June 2000, at age 74, he was hailed as a pioneer in cross-species organ transplants (now known as xenotransplantation).  By 1964 he had already placed six chimpanzee kidneys into six patients.  All his  patients died, but eventually Reemtsma succeeded in many successful  human-to-human organ transplants.
        Much more likely to have spread animal viruses to human beings is the largely forgotten  Special Virus Cancer Program (SVCP). This  research program  was responsible  for  the development, the seeding, and the deployment of various animal viruses,  which were  capable of producing cancer and immune system damage when  transferred between animal species and into human cells and tissue.
        The SVCP began in 1964 as a government-funded program of the National Cancer Institute (NCI)  in Bethesda, Maryland. Originally designed   to study leukemia and lymphoma forms of cancer,  the program was soon enlarged to study all forms of cancer.
        The SVCP  marshalled many of the nation's finest virologists, biochemists, immunologists, molecular biologists, and epidemiologists,  at the most prestigious institutions  in a coordinated attempt to assess  the role of viruses in causing  human cancer.  Many of  the top  AIDS scientists, including Dr. Robert Gallo (the co-discoverer of  HIV), Myron (Max)  Essex (of "cat AIDS"  fame), and Peter Duesberg (who claims HIV is not the cause of AIDS), were connected with the Program.
        The scope of the program was international and included scientists from Japan, Sweden, Italy, the Netherlands, Israel, and even Uganda, Africa.  A main mission of the SVCP was to collect various  human and animal cancers from around the world and to  grow large amounts of cancer-causing  viruses. In the process, many animal  viruses were adapted to human cells. These cultured viruses would  then  be shipped to researchers throughout the world.
        An annual report of the accomplishments of the SVCP was published by the NCI.  The 1971 SVCR report indicates  a mouse leukemia virus had been adapted to grow in human cells. A "hybrid virus" - a mixture of a mouse sarcoma and a cat (feline) leukemia virus - was engineered and grown in cat cells. Chicken and feline retroviruses produced cancer  in monkeys. Mouse-cat virus hybrids and feline leukemia virus were adapted to human cells in tissue culture. Thus, "species jumping" was a common occurrence in these experiments.

    Biological Warfare,  Primate Research and the SVCP
        Also joining forces with the SVCP at the NCI were  the miltary's biological warfare researchers. On October 18, 1971, President Richard Nixon announced that the army's  biowarfare laboratories at nearby Fort Detrick, Maryland, would be converted to research on the cause, prevention,  and treatment of cancer. As part of  Nixon's so-called  War on Cancer, the military biowarfare unit was retitled the new Frederick Cancer Research Center. Litton Bionetics was named as the military's  prime contractor for this project.
        The 1971 annual report noted that one  of the primary tasks   of the now jointly connected  National Cancer Institute-Frederick Cancer Research Center was "the large scale production of oncogenic (cancer-causing) and suspected oncogenic viruses to meet research needs on a continuing basis." Special attention was given to primate viruses (the alleged African source of HIV) and  "the successful propagation of significant amounts of human candidate viruses."
        Candidate viruses were animal or human viruses that might be capable of intiating human cancers.   And  primate cancer-causing  viruses were adapted to 'normal' human cells.
        A steady supply of research animals (monkeys, chimpanzees, mice, and cats) was necessary, which resulted in the establishment of  breeding colonies for the SVCP.   Healthy animals were shipped in from various parts of the world  for breeding purposes and experimentation; and virus-infected animals were shipped out again to various labs.
        By 1971, a total of 2,274 primates had been inoculated at Bionetics Research Laboratories, under contract to Fort Detrick. Over 1000 of these monkeys  had already died or had been transferred to other primate centers. (Some animals were eventually released back into the wild). By this time, experimenters  had spread lymphoma-producing viruses into several species of monkeys, and had also isolated a monkey virus (Herpesvirus saimiri) that would have a  close genetic relationship to a new Kaposi's sarcoma virus that produced the "gay cancer" of AIDS a  few years later.
        In order  to prime primates and other research animals to acquire cancer, their  immune system was deliberately suppressed by drugs, radiation, or cancer-causing chemicals or substances. The thymus gland and/or the spleen was removed, and viruses were injected into newborn animals or into the womb of pregnant animals. Some  animals were also  injected with malaria to keep them chronically sick  and immunodepressed.
        Primates (especially newborn and baby chimpanzees)  were the most favored lab  animals because they were most similar biochemically and immunologically to human beings,  and because there would  be no official testing of these lab  viruses on humans.   An irradiated rhesus monkey colony supplied animals for transplantation experiments.
        Robert Gallo was a project officer of a primate study contracted   by Bionetics that pumped cancerous human tissue, as well as a variety of chicken and monkeys viruses  into newborn macaques (a small species of monkey).  This 1971 SVCP report (NIH-71-2025) declared: "Inasmuch as tests for the biological activity of candidate human viruses will not be tested in the human species, it is imperative that  another system be developed for these determinations and, subsequently for the evaluation of vaccines or other measure of control. The close phylogenetic relationship of the lower primates of man justifies utilization of these animals for these purposes."
        Researchers at Bionetics  evaluated  the long-term cancer effects of injecting human and animal cancer material into various species of monkeys. Newborn monkeys,   irradiated monkeys,  and monkeys primed with cancer-causing chemicals,  were injected with blood ("using multiple sites and volumes as large as possible") taken from  various forms of human leukemia. In other studies, tissue cultures infected with various animal viruses were inoculated into primates. Many kinds  of human cancer tissue were injected into the animals. How many "new" and "emerging" viruses were created and adapted by the SVCP is not known. And it  is unlikely that complete records of this animal cancer virus experimentation will ever be examined.
        Cats were also bred  for leukemia and sarcoma cancer studies. An inbred germfree colony of mice was established.  Mouse cancer viruses were manipulated to produce resistant and non-resistant strains. These adapted viruses  would be employed in the  1980s in human gene replacement experiments. Such experiments utilized a weakened strain of the mouse leukemia virus to  infect and "taxi-in" the missing genes to genetically-defective human cells.

    The End of the SVCP and the Birth of  AIDS

        By 1977 the SVCP came to a inglorious end. According to Gallo, "Scientifically, the problem was that no one could supply clear evidence of any kind of human tumor virus, not even a DNA virus, and most researchers refused to concede that viruses played any role in human cancers. Politically, the Virus Cancer Program was vulnerable because it attracted  a great deal of money and attention and had failed to produce dramatic, visible results."
        Despite all this, the  SCVP was the birthplace of genetic engineering, molecular biology, and the human genome project.  More than any other program it built up the field of animal retrovirology, which led to the vital understanding of cancer and immunosuppressive retroviruses in humans. Like manna from heaven,  AIDS in gays   put the virologists back in business. And HIV, a cancer-causing and immunosuppressive retrovirus,   would make Robert Gallo the most famous  scientist in the world.
        Few people understand clearly  that AIDS is a new form of cancer, and this aspect of AIDS has not been publicized for obvious reasons.  Physicians have always told their patients that cancer is not contagious or sexually transmitted. Virologists  wanted AIDS  and "gay cancer" to be a new disease because HIV  was supposedly brand new. It was easier to blame gays for initiating this  new disease with their sexual lifestyle than it was to point the finger at scientists. And if  AIDS was connected to animal cancer research, some people might wonder if the new disease had anything to do with all those species jumping experiments in the 1970s. Making people understand that AIDS is cancer would only confuse them.
         And so, instead of looking for the source of HIV in the thousands of animal cancer experiments performed througout the world, the virologists insisted on looking for the source of the virus in primates in the African rainforest.

    The Pre-AIDS Gay Hepatitis B Experiments (1978-1981)

        As the SVCP was winding down, thousands of gay men were signing up as guinea pigs for government-sponsored hepatitis B vaccine experiments in  New York, Los Angeles, and  San Francisco. In a few years these cities would become the epicenters for "gay-related immune deficiency syndrome, "  later known as AIDS.
        Could virus-contaminated vaccines lie at the root of AIDS?  In   the early 1970s the hepatitis B vaccine  was developed in chimpanzees, now widely accepted as the animal from which HIV supposedly evolved.  To this day, some people are fearful about taking the  hepatitis B vaccine because of its original connection to gay men and AIDS; and older physicians remember the original experimental hepatitis vaccine was made from the pooled blood serum of  hepatitis-infected homosexuals.
        Was HIV  "introduced" into gays during these vaccine trials when thousands of homosexuals were injected in New York beginning in 1978, and in the West Coast cities in 1980-1981?
        AIDS  first erupted in gays living in New York City in 1979 a few months after the experiment began in Manhattan.  The astounding and statistically significant  fact is that 20% of the gay men who volunteered for the hepatitis  B experiment in New York  were discovered to be HIV-positive in 1980 (a year before AIDS became "official" in 1981).  This would mean that Manhattan men had the highest incidence of HIV anywhere in the world, including Africa, the supposed birthplace of HIV and AIDS. The fact is that definite, proven cases of AIDS in Africa would not appear until 1982.
        Some researchers are convinced that these vaccine experiments served as the vehicle through which HIV was "introduced" into the gay population in America.  Nevertheless, AIDS scientists have downplayed any connection of AIDS with the vaccine.      My own extensive research into the hepatitis B experiments    is presented in  AIDS and the Doctors of Death: An Inquiry into the Origin of the AIDS Epidemic, published in 1988. Also included in this book is evidence suggesting "patient
    Zero" story of 1987, which claimed a  promiscuous gay Canadian airline steward brought AIDS  to America.   Montagnier "is doubtful that the American epidemic could have developed from a single patient."
        Montagnier admits that he stands apart from Robert Gallo on many matters. In a mind-blowing statement he declares  "Gallo was not a medical doctor, but rather a biochemist by training. His limited experience with viruses at the time perhaps explains his misinterpretations and the contaminations that occurred in his laboratory." ( Gallo has always declared himself as a physician. If he is not, then we certainly do have a conspiracy problem on our hands.)
        What is obvious from their authored books is that while the continent of Africa dies, these two top scientists in AIDS research continue their vendetta in print, and continue to promote their own pet  theories on the origin of HIV and AIDS to an adoring scientific community.

    "Gay and Straight" Strains of HIV and Sexual Preference

        It is common knowledge that  AIDS is  a heterosexual disease in Africa, and that AIDS  started exclusively as a gay disease  in the United States. Although the public was told early on that  "no one is immune from AIDS", the fact remains that even now (20 years after the first AIDS cases) 80% of the new AIDS cases in America are gay men, IV drug addicts, and their sexual partners. Why is this? Certainly HIV does not discriminate between sexual preference and race! Or does it?
        In the mid-1990s molecular biologists identified  at least 8 different subtypes (or "clades" or "strains") of HIV that were infecting various people around  the world. Remarkably, it turns out that the "B" strain is the predominant strain infecting gays in the U.S. Even more remarkable is that this strain of HIV   has an "affinity" to infect rectal tissue, thus explaining why gays are more  likely to get AIDS than straights.  In contrast, the HIV strains common  in Africa have an affinity for vaginal and cervical cells, as well as for cells of the foreskin of the penis. Thus, HIV is more likely to infect heterosexuals in Africa.
        How do we know this? Max Essex (a Harvard veterinarian who performed pre-AIDS  experiments transferring feline leukemia virus between cat populations)  tested subtype E strains of HIV from Thailand. He discovered that this Asian strain readily infected women's  genital cells of  the vagina and cervix.  But the "gay"  B strain of HIV  did not infect them as easily.
        AIDS experts tell us American AIDS came from Africa, but the strain of HIV prevalent in gay men is almost never seen in Africa! How is this possible? Were strains of  HIV  engineered to adapt easily to cells likely to be infected in gay sex? Or adapted to genital cells  involved in vaginal sex?
         We know scientists in the SVCP were able to adapt certain retroviruses to infect specific  kinds of  cells. As early as 1970 biowarfare scientists were learning to design certain infectious agents (particularly viruses) that would attack the cells of  certain racial groups.
        More recently, in 1997, Stephen O'Brien and Michael Dean of the Laboratory of Genomic Diversity at the National Cancer Institute have  shown that one out of ten white people have AIDS-resistant  genes, whereas blacks in Africa have none. Is this simply another  peculiarity of a virus that jumped species in the African bush?  Or is HIV a designer virus, specifically adapted in its subtypes to infect certain racial groups and gay people?
        When AIDS appeared in 1981, health officials assured the "general  public"  that there was nothing to fear. "AIDS is a gay disease" was the phrase repeated over and over again in a media blitz. As late as 1987, Robert Gallo told Playboy reporter David Black, "I personally don't know of a single case (in America) of a man getting the (AIDS) virus from a woman through heterosexual intercourse."
        In Africa, where AIDS affects men and women in equal numbers, Gallo's explanation to Black was: "It happens, but that may be due to differences in sexual practices, more promiscuity or to a greater incidence of venereal disease." Gallo give Playboy his reassurance of the future of heterosexual AIDS in America: "AIDS will never become an overwhelming danger to the general public."

    Solving the Mystery of the Origin of AIDS

        The pre-AIDS species jumping experiments of  the  Special Virus Cancer Program   (SVCP) have been largely expunged from the  history of HIV and AIDS. The viral contamination problems inherent in viral research have also been downplayed. As a result,  the origin of HIV and AIDS has been distorted and obscured.
        A serious  examination of  the SVCP provides   "missing links" to the possible laboratory origin of HIV.  The ability of  SVCP scientists  to produce "new" diseases with cancer-causing animal viruses is a matter of record. The ability of animal viruses  to easily contaminate laboratory experiments and vaccine manufacture is also well known. All these factors make  the man-made theory of AIDS  rational and compelling.

        Some areas of HIV/AIDS history that require further analysis are:
    The connection between AIDS  and  cancer
    The connection of HIV to known (pre-AIDS) animal cancer lab viruses
    The connection of the SVCP to the outbreak of AIDS
    The connection of vaccine programs to the outbreak of AIDS
    The connection of biological warfare research to the outbreak of AIDS
    The disinformation surrounding the origin of AIDS
    The disinformation blaming the "victims" of AIDS for the disease
    The total secrecy of biological warfare and its implications for science
    The wedding of cancer and AIDS scientists to biological warfare scientists
    The "sworn to secrecy" problem  of  the government/military   scientists
    The wedding of government to medical science for military b/w purposes
    The long history of secret medical experiments on unsuspecting citizens

        All these factors need to be explored more fully and  impartially in order to more fully elucidate the man-made, laboratory origin of HIV and AIDS.
        To continue to ignore these issues is to ignore the fate of countless millions who will die from AIDS and other "emerging viruses" in the future.
        The  Special Virus Cancer Program (and biowarfare experimentation worldwide) has forever changed the course of history of medical science, resulting in the current dangers of biological terrorism and the fear of newly emerging man-made viruses and other infectious agents.
        To study the theories of  origin of HIV/AIDS and to ignore the SVCP with its biowarfare implications is like studying the Holocaust and failing to mention  the Nazis. Some readers may find this analogy offensive, but in light of the close connection of the SVCP with the outbreak of HIV and AIDS, it is suggested that final judgement be reserved until all the pertinent facts are ascertained.
        The SVCP and "the hand of man" lie  at the root of HIV. The flowering of the worldwide epidemic of AIDS is proof that the seeds were well planted.

    Over the past few decades there is proof that government agencies have repeatedly exposed people to biological agents in secret experiments authorized by government agencies. We have read about the secret radiation experiments performed on unsuspecting U.S. citizens. There are over 500 documented criminal experiments that have been performed on people without their knowledge or consent. So the idea of AIDS as a biological experiment is not without precedent.

    Charges of secret and unethical experiments against helpless American citizens are not the ravings of paranoid people. On the contrary, they are serious accusations of an informed and enlightened citizenry. Military biowarfare attacks against unsuspecting Americans in the 1950s and 60s are a documented reality.

    A decade ago, the idea of AIDS as a man-made disease was considered nonsense. Now the idea is frequently mentioned in the media, but the evidence for it is never discussed, and the idea is always dismissed as paranoid. Conveniently lost in the history of AIDS is the gay hepatitis B vaccine that immediately preceded the slaughter of gay Americans. Were the Ebola and Marburg viruses also created in biowarfare laboratories during the 1970's? Are significant truths being censored by science, media, and academia? This website is not the reflection of anyones' personal agenda or vendetta; it is honest journalism gleaned from the hard-earned research of impeccably-credentialed professionals. To ignore and remain in denial of this research is to make a mockery of medical science as a field of open and honest inquiry. What follows is not theory.

    Chinese peasants take revenge after being given HIV

    London Daily Telegraph
    By Damien McElroy in Beijing
    (Filed: 10/03/2002)

    CHINA is being swept by a wave of revenge attacks by victims of a government scheme that infected hundreds of thousands of peasants with the Aids virus before abandoning them without medical care or compensation.

    Major cities have been convulsed by fear as word has spread that innocent pedestrians are being attacked in the street by people with syringes said to contain HIV-tainted blood.

    Anxious residents of Beijing and Tianjin, the two largest northern cities, have besieged hospital clinics, demanding blood tests after saying that they were stabbed in the street. The government imposed a news blackout for fear of fuelling further panic, especially in Tianjin, where 47 reported attacks have prompted workers to call in sick, led shoppers to stay at home and caused some people to flee the city.

    Between 100,000 and 500,000 people from Henan province, in central China, are thought to have contracted the virus after selling blood in a scheme that used unsanitary methods.

    Whole villages in the province have been plunged into a public-health crisis as up to 80 per cent of residents have been infected with HIV. They have since received little or no medical care. Some have travelled to the cities to draw attention to their plight.

    The virus was spread after local authorities set up collection units that toured villages, buying blood and returning plasma to donors - a method that helps the body compensate for the loss of blood. Government agencies are said to have pooled plasma in vats before reinjecting it. Visitors to the area describe scenes composed of the living dead - victims developing Aids and enduring the fevers, sores, headaches, boils and consumptive coughs associated with it. On the streets, shuffling men and women in clothes that no longer fit stare at strangers with the hopeless look of the damned.

    Many villagers now face a nightmarish existence of suffering without state medical care as they slip towards death.

    The infections date back to the late 1990s, but victims have been growing bolder recently as they challenge the government for free medicine and financial compensation. Last month, their desperation spilled out of the backward uplands of Henan and on to the prosperous streets of China's big cities. Police say that the number of attacks has been growing.

    "The Tianjin public security [police] bureau has ascertained that a small number of criminals with ulterior motives were responsible for recent attacks on citizens by people wielding syringes and sharp objects," said one officer.

    Discos and cinemas have suffered a slump in custom as worried people stay home, while Tianjin's education officials have told schools to strengthen security.
