Introduction
The book of Roos, The Forgotten Pollution, differs fundamentally from climate change ideas. The tsunami of climate books draw much public interest. Now 25 years later, we see that their « solutions » do not work. In fact the knowledge on atmospheric problems has not improved since. By omitting key elements on pollution and climate, we will never advance. So like Feynman, said : « For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for Nature cannot be fooled. »

With the help of some simple applications, it is possible to get a better overview not only in the war acts in the Russian-Ukrainian conflict on land, but also at sea and in the air. In this article we will limit ourselves to "observation" of the aerosol in air using PM2.5 measurement equipment. These aerosols, even in wartime, can be easily measur...

Fireworks can produce many particles in the air. Under the "right" atmospheric conditions, these act as condensation nuclei. Condensation of water vapor on the nuclei creates droplets, thus precipitation. Depending on the local meteorological conditions, rain, snow, hail or fog will then form. Acts of war bring much more particles into the air than...

The scorching heat wave of the year 2021 in Moscow has not occurred in 120 years, according to the news. The temperature often exceeded 36°C during the day. The heat wave was followed by huge electrical activity, thunder and lightning. Then came the apocalyptic winds and cloudbursts. Analysis of these events yields the picture that Nature is showi...

AccuWeather site: "Heat waves can occur when a high pressure system enters a region and stagnates. The system can force warm air downward preventing the cool air at the surface from rising." What constitutes a heat wave can vary greatly from region to region. So let's analyze what happened in the Moscow region this summer (2021) regarding the heat...

German television reporter Susanna Ohlen was caught on video apparently trying to muddy herself before going on camera to report from a town devastated by last week’s deadly flooding, prompting her suspension by news outlet RTL. Videos posted Thursday on social media showed Ohlen in the town of Bad Munstereifel, appearing to wipe mud on herself as...

For a future Cold Plasma Gazette N°7, a mid-August attempt was made to analyze the recent heat wave that paralyzed Russia's capital at the end of June 2021 [1]. An event that had not occurred in 120 years. The heat wave later turned into an apocalyptic mixture of thunderstorms, violent wind gusts, huge amount of rain that caused flooding on a large...

The death toll in Europe shot past 180 on Sunday, while more parts of the continent were hit by disastrous floods caused by heavy rainfall. At least 155 people were killed in Germany’s western Rhineland - Palatinate region and neighboring North Rhine-Westphalia. The military was deployed to help rescue workers save people from rooftops and recover...

An entire village in British Columbia, Canada was devoured by fire, which ignited shortly after the country’s all-time high temperature record was smashed amid a heatwave in the western part of the country. The fire reduced the small historic village of Lytton, located about 260km (162 miles) northeast of Vancouver, to little more than smoldering d...

A Plasma Tornado has a horizontal "trunk" and propagates by making "jumps". The classic vertical tornado can be characterized by means of the Fujita scale ranging from 0 to 5. The damage caused by the Plasma Tornado is often unprecedented. The South Moravia tornado likely manifested and propagated in both modes, Therefore the Fujita scale can only...

Numerous climate models based on the assumption of temperature rise through an increase inthe CO2 level of the atmosphere foresee also an increase in the number of heavy storms and inundations for the years to come. This can be done because of the lack of knowledge on the real mechanisms that govern these storms. From this article it becomes clear...

1. ABSTRACT A excellent idea on the part of Academia.edu, is to set up an alternative Letter to the Editor, and is much needed. In our opinion, this has to do with the approach of a different kind of readers. For this reason, a plea is made for the Fire Triangle and the SIMPLE RESEARCH STRIP (SRS) approach.

The virus is getting closer. If you live in rural areas, you are less concerned with reports about overcrowded hospitals. This is not a strange reaction. After all, politicians had the same reaction when the epidemic was still in Wuhan/ China. And even when the epidemic turned into a pandemic, many people suddenly appeared to be specialists in viru...

Résumé En pratique, il apparaît clairement que le coronavirus a les dimensions d'une particule d'aérosol submicronique ~ 0,2 µm et se comporte donc comme tel.

In practice it becomes clear that the coronavirus has the dimensions of a sub-micron ~ 0.2 µm aerosol particle and thus behaves as such. Sub micron not only means that the virus is invisible, but also that it remains floating. This is possible because most of the larger particles, which can capture the virus, are no longer present in our atmosphere...

"Clean Air" as we have explained for many years to those who seemed to listen, is the cause of many of today's problems. The virus also uses "Clean Air" to spread on a large scale.

It is a clear case that, as far as the West is concerned, the corona vitus is still not under control after months. This means that the reproduction factor R is still R>1. This means that avoiding contact through the 1.5 meters and limiting dispersion through coughing and sneezing with mouth caps is not enough. Logical because we forgot the aerosol...

Het is een duidelijke zaak dat wat het Westen betreft men het corona vitus na maanden nog steeds niet onder controle heeft. Dat betekent dat de reproductie factor R nog steeds R>1 is.

Modern ionizers have a very small scientific base. They produce with a high voltage, large amounts of "healthy" negative ions who act as condensation nuclei, and the droplets give this "fresh" feeling. However they have a large chemical impact,.

Yesterday the 29 th of May we learned that the Starship SN4 prototype, built by Elon Musk's SpaceX company for interplanetary flights, exploded. This happened during an engine test in Texas.

Our answer to this question is that they are indeed mainly not reliable. A radio broadcast recently claimed that aerosols of COVID-19 virus were of little importance.

The modern car with filter, which behaves like a vacuum cleaner, together with air traffic and forest fires, are the cause of our world wide deficiency of Vitamin D.

For a long time epidemiology was based on miasma, or bad air. This mechanism transported spontaneously formed germs: Generation Spontanea.

Terrible Taiga, Australian and Californian wildfires, collapsing bridges due to torrential rains, melting poles.

Aerial photos of Notre-Dame after the fire show that there is a certain form of selectivity, so that electrostatics can play a role. Let's see if this is a reasonable assumption. In 1752 it became clear to d’Alembert that thunderstorms were also a form of electricity and that it was even capable of drawing sparks. A similar instrument has recently...

The charge on the aircraft will increase, when the engins are used at full power, as it was the case with the LZ129 zeppelin due to a heavy wind or the Antonov AN-148 which was gaining height. Concerning the Iran Aseman Airlines flight EP3704 it is probably a combination of meteorological conditions together with an increase in engine power needed...

In my opinion it is likely that meteorological conditions are playing a substantial role in the crash of the AN148, however not in the way as generally taken into account by meteorological services.
