Abstract

Earth's life support systems are breaking down, including the stratospheric ozone layer, which protects all higher life on the planet from deadly ultraviolet radiation. This breakdown is a direct result of human activities including the large-scale manipulation of processes that affect Earth's climate, otherwise known as geoengineering. We present further evidence that coal fly ash, utilized in tropospheric aerosol geoengineering, is the primary cause of stratospheric ozone depletion, not chlorofluorocarbons, as "decreed" by the Montreal Protocol. The misdiagnosis was a potentially fatal mistake by mankind. Coal fly ash particles, uplifted to the stratosphere, are collected and trapped by polar stratospheric clouds. In springtime, as these clouds begin to melt/evaporate, multiple coal fly ash compounds and elements are released to react with and consume stratospheric ozone. Contrary to the prevailing narrative, the stratospheric ozone layer has already been badly damaged and now increasingly deadly ultraviolet radiation, UV-B and UV-C, penetrates to Earth's surface. Our time is short to permanently end all geoengineering activities, and to reduce and/or eliminate all sources of aerosolized coal fly ash, including first and foremost the jet-sprayed emplacements into the troposphere that are systematically breaking down Earth's support systems and poisoning life on this planet.

... Aerosolized coal fly ash, causes global warming [32], disrupts habitats [33], harms agriculture [8,12], contaminates the environment with mercury [14], decimates populations of insects [34], bats [35], and birds [36]. Aerosolized coal fly ash also kills trees [15,37], exacerbates wildfires [10], enables harmful algae in our waters [38], and destroys the stratospheric ozone layer that shields surface-life from the sun's deadly ultraviolet radiation [39][40][41]. ...

We provide a preponderance of evidence that worldwide covert environmental modification (geoengineering) activities have been ongoing for several decades, citing numerous peer-reviewed scientific and medical articles and other sources in support of our allegation that such activities are causing innumerable harms to Earth’s systems. These harms include, but are not limited to, catastrophic loss of wildlife, aggravation of global warming and climate chaos; disruption of habitats; aggravation of droughts and concomitant degradation of agriculture; and depletion of stratospheric ozone, which exposes surface life to deadly solar ultraviolet radiation. In 1978 the United Nations (UN) oversaw the creation of the Convention on the Prohibition of Military or Other Hostile Use of Environmental Modification Techniques (ENMOD), a deliberately vague and deceitful international treaty that has served as a Trojan horse to provide a “legal” basis for subsequent worldwide geoengineering activities (as described herein). Since the creation of the UN Environmental Program (UNEP) in 1972, the UN and some of its other agencies, including the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), and the World Health Organization (WHO), has formally committed itself to the integrity of the planetary environment. We appeal to the International Criminal Court to render judgement in favor of the world’s individual citizens, whose fundamental rights have been abrogated by planetary geoengineering, as herein documented. We respectfully request the following relief from the International Criminal Court: 1) Immediate and permanent end to the ENMOD Convention; 2) Permanent global injunction on all activities undertaken under ENMOD’s authority; 3) Declassification of all documents related to ENMOD activities as well as making all such documents freely available to the world; 4) Establishment of a legal body, fashioned after the International Military Tribunal at Nuremburg, to hear evidence and render justice for planetary treason and crimes against humanity and the environment.
... These steps are necessary to salvage what we can of Earth's vital life support systems, including the stratospheric ozone layer, which has protected all higher life on Earth from damaging ultraviolet radiation. The deliberate assault on Earth's natural processes, we allege, constitutes no less than acts of planetary treason [100]. ...

We provide further compelling evidence that aerosolized coal fly ash and its various components, especially iron, is the primary cause of stratospheric ozone depletion, not chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) gases, as "decreed" by the Montreal Protocol of 1989. Aerosolized coal fly ash is a toxic "witches' brew" of numerous elements and substances that destroy ozone directly and indirectly by numerous chemical reactions, the full extent of which is not yet known. The prevailing CFC-ozone depletion theory is simply wrong, and does not account for multiple chemical and photochemical reactions that kill stratospheric ozone. We discuss the primary role of coal fly ash particles in ice nucleation and cloud formation in the upper troposphere and stratosphere, and dispel the notion that meteoric or extra-terrestrial material is responsible for polar stratospheric clouds. We provide extensive documentation that iron and several other elements found in coal fly ash are trapped in polar stratospheric clouds and destroy ozone by various means, especially when they are released in the spring. Recent scientific discoveries "fit together" to strongly support the New Paradigm of stratospheric ozone depletion by coal fly ash. The "World Not Avoided" by the Montreal Protocol is already here: The biosphere is in collapse with runaway global warming, and lethal ultraviolet radiation penetrating to Earth's surface. This new paradigm shift must be operationalized. Time is critically short to salvage what we can of Earth's vital life support systems, including the stratospheric ozone layer. We reiterate that all sources of aerosolized coal fly ash must be reduced and/or eliminated. All forms of geoengineering must stop immediately if we are to survive as a species. The deliberate assault on Earth's natural processes, we allege, constitutes no less than acts of planetary treason.

We have previously provided compelling evidence that aerosolized coal fly ash particles, not chlorofluorocarbons (CFC's), are the primary cause of stratospheric ozone depletion [European Journal of Applied Sciences, 2022, 10(3), 586-603]. Here we turn our attention to iron, one of the most reactive elements among the others in coal fly ash that destroy ozone. Iron in primary and secondary aerosols plays a crucial role in the formation of ice crystals in cirrus clouds and in the polar stratospheric clouds that are involved in ozone hole formation. Iron is associated with reactive oxygen species, like the hydroxyl radical (OH) that destroys ozone in the stratosphere. Iron is known to activate halogens including chlorine, bromine, and iodine. Ozone is destroyed by adsorption onto iron-containing particles and by photochemical reactions with other constituents of coal fly ash. The inability of the scientific community to break out of the CFC paradigm and address the true cause of stratospheric ozone depletion is a potentially fatal mistake. We already face a ghastly future with severely depleted stratospheric ozone levels and devastation from deadly ultraviolet radiation. All sources of coal fly ash aerosols must be reduced or eliminated; first and foremost, the deliberate, covert, and near global jet-spraying of coal fly ash particulates into the upper troposphere.

This paper reveals a large and all-season ozone hole in the lower stratosphere over the tropics (30°N–30°S) existing since the 1980s, where an O 3 hole is defined as an area of O 3 loss larger than 25% compared with the undisturbed atmosphere. The depth of this tropical O 3 hole is comparable to that of the well-known springtime Antarctic O 3 hole, whereas its area is about seven times that of the latter. Similar to the Antarctic O 3 hole, approximately 80% of the normal O 3 value is depleted at the center of the tropical O 3 hole. The results strongly indicate that both Antarctic and tropical O 3 holes must arise from an identical physical mechanism, for which the cosmic-ray-driven electron reaction model shows good agreement with observations. The whole-year large tropical O 3 hole could cause a great global concern as it can lead to increases in ground-level ultraviolet radiation and affect 50% of the Earth’s surface area, which is home to approximately 50% of the world’s population. Moreover, the presence of the tropical and polar O 3 holes is equivalent to the formation of three “temperature holes” observed in the stratosphere. These findings will have significances in understanding planetary physics, ozone depletion, climate change, and human health.

We present compelling evidence that supports our contention that aerosolized coal fly ash particles are the main agents responsible for stratospheric ozone depletion, not chlorofluorocarbon gases. Aerosolized coal fly ash particles, uplifted to the stratosphere, not only serve as ice-nucleating agents, but are trapped and concentrated in stratospheric clouds, including Polar Stratospheric Clouds. In springtime, as stratospheric clouds begin to melt/evaporate, said ozone-consuming coal fly ash particles are released making them available to react with and consume stratospheric ozone. Ceasing to contaminate the environment with aerosolized coal fly ash will decrease stratospheric ozone destruction, reduce global warming, and will significantly improve human and environmental health.

The status of the stratospheric ozone layer is assessed by a panel of experts every 4 years. Reports prepared by this panel include a section with common questions and answers (Q&A) about ozone depletion and related matters. Since 2002, this Q&A supplement has featured a plot comparing historical and current ultraviolet (UV) Index data from Palmer Station, Antarctica (64° S), with measurements at San Diego, California (32° N), and Barrow, Alaska (79° N). The assumptions in generating these plots are discussed and an updated version is presented. The revised plot uses additional data up to the year 2020 and the methods used to create it are better defined and substantiated compared to those used for the legacy plot. Differences between the old and new UV Index values are small (typically < 5%). Both versions illustrate that the ozone hole has led to a large increase in the UV Index at Palmer Station. Between mid-September and mid-November, the maximum UV Index at this site has more than doubled compared to the pre-ozone-hole era (i.e., prior to 1980). When Palmer Station was below the ozone hole in December 1998, an “extreme” UV Index of 14 was observed, exceeding the highest UV Index of 12 ever measured at San Diego despite the city’s subtropical latitude. Increases in the UV Index at Barrow and San Diego remain below 40% and 3%, respectively. Graphical abstract

Attributable to the Montreal Protocol, the most successful environmental treaty ever, human-made ozone-depleting substances are declining and the stratospheric Antarctic ozone layer is recovering. However, the Antarctic ozone hole continues to occur every year, with the severity of ozone loss strongly modulated by meteorological conditions. In late November and early December 2020, we measured at the northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula the highest ultraviolet (UV) irradiances recorded in the Antarctic continent in more than two decades. On Dec. 2nd, the noon-time UV index on King George Island peaked at 14.3, very close to the largest UV index ever recorded in the continent. On Dec. 3rd, the erythemal daily dose at the same site was among the highest on Earth, only comparable to those recorded at high altitude sites in the Atacama Desert, near the Tropic of Capricorn. Here we show that, despite the Antarctic ozone recovery observed in early spring, the conditions that favor these extreme surface UV events persist in late spring, when the biologically effective UV radiation is more consequential. These conditions include long-lasting ozone holes (attributable to the polar vortex dynamics) that often bring ozone-depleted air over the Antarctic Peninsula in late spring. The fact that these conditions have been occurring at about the same frequency during the last two decades explains the persistence of extreme surface UV events in Antarctica.

The ongoing "hidden in plain sight" geoengineering operations including the pervasive, near global spraying of ultrafine particles into the troposphere pose an existential risk to the biosphere and humanity. Likewise, bioengineering and genetic manipulation of potential pandemic pathogens with associated accidental or deliberate release represents a dire risk to the modern world. Compelling evidence to date indicates that the chimeric structure and added furin cleavage site of SARS-CoV-2 was the result of human manipulation in the laboratory. Coronavirus and vaccine patents indicate a foreknowledge of the COVID-19 pandemic, which conveniently serves the interests of the global elites. The new COVID-19 vaccines, hailed as the answer to the pandemic, have potential toxicity, fail to prevent transmission, drive the development of new variants, and over time may predispose recipients to antibody-dependent enhancement (ADE) of infection. Other important technological threats include Internet-based censorship, nano-particulate pollution, electro-pollution and the massive amounts of electromagnetic energy inflicted on humans and Earth's natural environment. A Technology Bill of Rights is critically needed to protect humanity and salvage what remains of Earth's life support systems.

California's Giant Sequoias and Coast Redwoods, long symbols of strength, longevity, and resilience, have survived natural climate change for as long as 3,000 years, but are now succumbing to human manipulation of the natural environment. Scientists concerned with the wellbeing of these magnificent trees blame their recent die-offs on climate change, drought, and insects while turning a blind eye to the primary underlying cause: environmental modification by jet-emplacement in the troposphere of toxic particles evidenced as coal combustion fly ash. Said aerosolized particulates cause droughts and deluges, heat the troposphere, contaminate rain, snow, and fog with plant-killing toxins including chemically-mobile aluminum, coat foliage, and exacerbate forest fires. The aerial spraying depletes stratospheric ozone, allowing damaging ultraviolet radiation B and C to reach Earth's surface. These environmental stressors weaken the trees to the point they are attacked by insects and pathogenic fungi. Here we disclose the unspoken, underlying cause of the die-offs of Giant Sequoias and Coast Redwoods. Through a diabolically-deceptive, Trojan horse, United Nations' International Treaty the governments of sovereign nations were coerced to wage environmental warfare against their own citizens and the natural environment under the guise of peaceful environmental modification. Remaining trees, and indeed much of the life on Earth, can only be saved if this environmental modification is halted.

MnO2 catalysts have been widely studied for catalytic gaseous ozone decomposition. However, their poor moisture resistance often leads to undesirable catalytic effects in the presence of high humidity. In this study, a novel catalyst with γ-like MnO2 was synthesized using the selective dissolution method on LaMnO3 perovskites. The as-prepared catalyst exhibited quite stable ozone conversion of ~90% within 12 h under 75% relative humidity (400–800 ppm of ozone, 30 °C, 150 000 mL·g⁻¹·h⁻¹ of WHSV). In contrast, traditional γ-MnO2 catalyst showed deficient resistance to H2O and sensitivity to space velocity. Detailed characterizations showed that the larger number of oxygen vacancies induced by structure reconstruction of the γ-like MnO2 and residual La³⁺ cations facilitated ozone decomposition in humid atmosphere. Finally, the reaction rate of ozone decomposition was proposed by a kinetic study, which further proved that the amount and hydrophilicity of oxygen vacancies are the determinants of the first-order reaction rate constant.
