Doubts accident result of freak weather

Doubts accident result of freak weather

An accident

An international task force investigating the effects of the devastating

cyanide spill from a part-owned Australian gold mine in Romania will be

urged to focus on the project's construction standards amid doubts the

accident was caused by freak weather.

Sources in the European Commission in Brussels, which will co-ordinate the

establishment of the task force, and Hungarian official sources, said

questions had been raised about whether construction of the tailings dam

met accepted international standards.

The dam burst, releasing a toxic sludge into rivers and creating Europe's

worst river pollution disaster for decades. The sources said construction

standards were likely to become the key issue in assessing the extent of

liability of the project owners, who face damage and compensation claims of

millions of dollars

Officials said evidence from people in the accident area raised serious

doubts about whether weather conditions, which the project owners have

blamed for causing the dam burst, were anywhere near as severe as this.

The Australian manager of the Baia Mare project, Mr Phil Evers, said after

meeting the EU's Environment Commissioner, Ms Margot Wallstroem, at the

mine site that weather conditions before the accident were "extremely


This, he said, had created a flood which had burst the tailings dam.

He said there had been heavier than normal snow falls in December and last

month, followed by heavy rainfall and

"a very severe thawing event" which had created an extraordinarily large

volume of water.

Mr Evers declined to comment on the construction standards of the dam.

The establishment of the task force was announced by Ms Wallstroem during

her visit to the affected area.

The mine owners will also conduct their own scientific investigation of the

accident, with an Australian expert team comprising an hydrologist, a

biologist and a chemist due at the mine site at the weekend.

Describing the contamination of the East European river system as a

catastrophe for the people living by the rivers, Ms Wallstroem said she

wanted answers about "what happened, how bad is the damage and what can be

done to rehabilitate the environment".

She also criticised the Australian half owner of the project, Esmeralda

Exploration, for what she said was an attempt to play down the seriousness

of the effects of the cyanide spill.

"They have to be prudent in what they are saying. This is a serious

environmental accident. For the people who depend on this water, it is a

catastrophe," Ms Wallstroem said.

Australia's Minister for the Environment, Senator Hill, said yesterday he

would look at sending technical or scientific expertise to the mining

disaster site but stressed that he felt Australia did not have any

financial liability for the accident

Crop circles are not a modern phenomenon.

They are mentioned in academic texts of the late 17th Century, and almost

200 cases- some with eyewitness accounts- have been reported prior to 1970.

Since then some eighty eyewitnesses from as far away as British Columbia

have reported crop circles forming in under twenty seconds; cases are often

accompanied by sightings of incandescent or brightly-coloured balls of

light, shafts of light or structured flying craft.

Serious attention was given to the simple circles in 1980 in southern

England. The designs appeared primarily as simple circles, circle with

rings, and variations on the Celtic cross up into the mid-1980s. Then they

developed straight lines and created pictograms, not unlike petroglyphs.

After 1990 the designs developed exponentially in complexity, and today it

is not unusual to come across designs mimicking computer fractals and

elements that relate to fourth dimensional quantum physics. Their sizes

have also increased, some occupying areas as large as 200,000 sq feet. To

date there have been over 10,000 reported and documented crop circles

throughout the world, with some 90% emerging from southern England. While

many still go unreported each year, the emegence of the phenomenon in the

world media and the internet has allowed more information to be lodged.

If you happen to buy the story that all crop circles were originated by two

sexagenarians with planks of wood, string and a weegie board, you are not

in the minority. Once in a while, governments like to control public

interest in unexplained phenomena by generating a disinformation method

called 'debunking', a technique invented during the Cold War for the sad

purpose of controlling mass opinion in the face of unexplainable phenomena

(this was the prime motive of the 1953 Robertson Panel, details of which

are obtained under the US Freedom of Information Act). The method is very

effective because the media provides little or no scientific or factual

data with which the public can form an educated opinion on the subject.

This absence of evidence is then replaced by ridiculing the subject through

association with other 'fringe' topics; so-called experts are brought-in to

explain away all the events as freak weather conditions or the work,

general pranksters, even sexually excited animals!

According to TV documentaries, all crop circles up to 1992 were made by two

simple, elderly men called Doug and Dave. It has since been discovered by

researchers such as George Wingfield and Armen Victorian that the D&D story

was tied to the British Ministry of Defense- in collusion with the CIA,

among others. Evidence supplied by a high-ranking informant in the British

Ministry of Defence suggested that the government had every intent to

discredit the phenomenon by putting forward two hoaxers in an effort to

quell growing public interest in crop circles. When confronted to provide

evidence on certain claimed formations, Doug and Dave changed their story,

even reversing previous claims; or they simply remained silent when asked

to explain the list of features found in the genuine phenomenon. When they

claimed making all the formations around the English county of Hampshire,

for example, it was pointed out that half the known formations had actually

occured in another county- "Er, no, we didn't do those either," they

replied. In the end, not even Doug and Dave knew which ones they had made.

And although they claim to have made hoaxes since 1978- at the time the

published date of the first design- evidence witheld confirmed crop circles

dating back into the 1930s. The public has never heard these retractions,

nor been given the opportunity to compare the mess created by D&D with the

mathematical symmetry of the real phenomenon.

In 1998, however, the surviving member of the deceptive duo did make an

incredible admission to British newspapers that he'd been guided by an

unknown force.

Since Doug and Dave's inauguration, many copycat hoaxers have appeared on

the scene. Some do it to disprove or derail researchers, some for profit,

some because they are sociopaths, some because they genuinely believe they

can communicate back to the phenomenon (with very interesting results, I

may add). Prior to 1989 the hoaxing problem was virtually unheard of. After

1990 designs of man-made origin vary by year- in 1992 and 1998 it was as

high as 90%, in 1996 as low as 20%.

That people with a good amount of training can go into a field and

eventually create a coherent pattern has never been the issue- recently, a

group of known hoaxers called TEam Satan/the circlemakers was paid to go to

conveniently out-of-the-way New Zealand to make an elaborate formation for

The Discovery Channel. The deceptive tactics used to trick a viewing public

into accepting the hoax theory are dealt with here.

The issue is that no man-made crop circle has satisfactorily replicated the

features associated with the real phenomenon, and this has baffled

scientists and researchers. Crop circles are created by a force seemingly

at odds with modern science. Central to the hoax argument is that a

physical object is required to flatten the crop to the ground, resulting in

the breaking of the plant stems. In genuine formations the stems are not

broken but bent (left), normally about an inch off the ground at the

plant's first node. The plants appear to be subjected to a short and

intense burst of heat which softens the stems to drop just above the ground

at 90Є, where they reharden into their new and very permanent position

without damaging the plants.

Plant biologists are baffled by this phenomenon and farmers, who know how

the land ticks, are baffled by this. It is the singlemost method of

identifying the real phenomenon. Research and laboratory tests suggest that

microwave or ultrasound may be the only method capable of producing such an


Crop circles are sometimes accompanied by trilling sounds, since captured

on tape and analysed by NASA as artificial in origin, with a harmonic

component in the infrasonic range.

The detection of electromagnetism also differentiates genuine formations

from fakes. This naturally-occuring energy is known to exist at ancient

sites such as stone circles, long barrows, tumuli, dolmens and menhirs, and

in churches and cathedrals which were built upon these sites. Crop circles,

sacred sites and other places of worship are also found upon intersecting

points along the Earth's invisible energy grid, and the size and shape of a

crop circle is typically determined by the area of these 'node' points on

the Earth's surface. The frequencies of this energy are associated with

changes in brainwave patterns and affect the body's biophysical rhythm, so

it is not unusual to find reports of people experiencing heightened states

of awareness and healings in crop circles- a situation also common to

sacred sites. People may also experience dizziness, disorientation and

nausea- effects caused by prolonged exposure to infrasound or microwave


Biophysical evidence includes plants' expanded epidermal walls, and

drastically extended node bends in fresh formations (normalright, crop

circle far right); also observed are distortions of seed embryos, and the

creation of expulsion cavities in the plants as if they have been heated

from the inside. In genuine formations there is a disruption of the plant's

crystalline structure, as these microscope photos demonstrate (left).

Yet in all cases, the plants are not damaged and will continue to grow and

ripen if left untouched. This would not be possible had they been trampled

by force.

Genuine crop circles are areas of gently laid and swirled plants which

create a floor in mathematical proportions similar to the Golden Mean, the

vortex nature uses to create precision organisms such as shells,

sunflowers, the spatial relationship of the bones in the human hand and

galaxies. The floor of crop circles can have up to five layers of weaving,

all in counterflow to each other, with every seed head intact and placed

beside each other as if arranged in a museum case; the centres can contain

nested, woven, crested, or wreathed swatches of plants- sometimes the

center will consist of a single standing plant.

They are not perfectly round but slightly elliptical (a hoax, requiring a

fixed central rope, cannot achieve this adequately). Their edges are

crisply defined from the flattened crop as if drawn with a compass and

incised with surgical precision. Hoaxes, by comparison, bear a stylistic

resemblance to tuffs of greasy, uncombed hair- and, of course, all their

plants have been trampled, bruised and crushed.

Other anomalies indicate an increase infra red output within and around a

new formation, indicating that both the heat content of the plants and the

watershed have been affected. Evidence even exists of four non-naturally

occuring, short-life radioactive isotopes in the soil inside genuine crop

circles (these dissipate after three or four hours); the soil in around

them appears to have been baked.

Mathematically, genuine crop circles encode obscure theorems based on

Euclidian geometry as well as the unalterable principles of sacred

geometry. They have the capacity to alter the local electromagnetic field

so that compasses cannot locate north; cameras, cellular phones and

batteries fail to operate, and aircraft equipment fails whilst flying over

them. Then there are levels of background radiation up to 300% above

normal, radio frequencies falling dramatically or rising sharply within

their perimeters, animals in local farms avoiding that particular area or

simply acting agitated hours before one materializes, and car batteries in

entire villages failling to operate the morning after one is found nearby.

In some of the major events, entire towns are left without power.

Since genuine formations materialize at crossing points along the Earth's

magnetic energy currents, they are influencing the energy pattern of local

phehistoric sites. They reference local Neolithic sites in

size/shape/direction, and are dowsable upon entry, with as many as 150

concentric rings of energy outside their physical perimeter. In fact, a

year after they have been harvested and the field ploughed and re-sown, the

energy imprint of the formations will still be dowsed, long after their

physical traces have vanished.

This area of research has allowed for the possibility of crop circles as a

healing force, and they are already being successfully employed in

radionics, flower essences and resonance therapy around the world, both for

people and environments in distress.

Crop circles are generally formed at night between the hours of 2-4 AM,

traditionally during the shortest evenings of the English year when

darkness lasts but four hours, in fields eagerly watched by farmers,

military, laser alarms, scientists or hundreds of enthusiasts in their

sleeping bags hoping to be the lucky ones to witness a crop circle forming.

Some of those lucky few have witnessed large balls of brilliant colour

project a beam of golden light into a field which next morning displays a

new crop circle.Yet despite many stakeouts and fields rigged with top

surveylance equipment, crop circles have appeared out of the mist right

under the noses of those looking for them. On one occasion, the

Circlemakers even materialized in full view of the British Prime Minister's

heavily-guarded country residence.

At Stonehenge in 1996 (left), a pilot reported seeing nothing while flying

above the monument, yet 15 minutes later this huge 900 ft formation

resembling the Julia Set computer fractal, and comprising 149 meticulously

layed circles, lay beside the heavily guarded monument. It took a team of

11- including myself- no less than five hours just to survey the formation.

Still not convinced? This web site contains a sampling of the on-going

research dedicated to enlightening the public. More will be added as time

goes by. Look at the pictures, study the research or better still, visit a

genuine crop circle. You'll get the message pretty quickly.

And when you do, tell this story to a friend.

What is El Nino?

El Nino, which in Spanish means child, is a freak weather pattern occuring

in the Pacific Ocean. It is well known that oceans have huge heat storage

capacity, which makes them one of the most important factors affecting

global climate. Every change in ocean temperature will have a certain

influence on weather patterns in adjacent land masses. When El nino occurs

such an interaction between ocean and atmosphere appears, proving theory

that these two are highly dependent on each other.
