Vorwort von John J. Trettin
Damit kein falscher Eindruck entsteht: Ich bin kein Gegner
afrikanischen Cloudbustings, besonders nicht wenn es erfolgreich ist wie
das in Algerien. Cloudbusteroperateure sollten schon ein gewisses Wissen
in benachbarten Disziplinen haben, wie beispielsweise Meteorologie etc..
Aber man muss nicht direkt einen Degree haben! Den gibt es staatlich selbst
in der Orgonomie nicht. Selbst Reich wusste seiner Zeit nichts über
Ökologie. Das sollte natürlich heute anders sein, und Joel ist
ein Kritiker darin, dass es das zu wenig diesbezüglich Cloudbusting
gibt. Die staatlichen Naturwissenschaftler kümmern sich sowieso nicht
um Orgonomie. Fachleute findet man dort nicht. Allerdings der Versuch amerikanischer
Vorherrschaft in Cloudbusting führte schon in Berlin zwischen 1988-95
zu einem Desaster. Zudem möchte ich nicht Cloudbustingprojekte kritisieren
in denen ich nicht selber arbeite und in denen ich keine grundsätzliche
Gefährdung sehe. Trotzdem finde ich die Informationen von Joel wertvoll
und deshalb sollten sie nicht vorenthalten werden. Man kann darüber
nachdenken. Das ist die Intension dieser Veröffentlichung und nicht
eine Kritik am Projekt in Algerien, die ich nicht habe. Heute gibt es eine
Internetbewegung zu der ich auch gehöre. Alles was nicht zu geheim
ist kann man öffentlich diskutieren.

OrgonGreening The Sahara--The Wrong Way
By Joel Carlinsky
(Former Orgone Biophysics Student of Dr. Eva Reich)
There is a project underway in Algeria to green the Sahara
Desert. It is attempting to use the Reich cloudbuster to bring rains to
the south side of the Atlas Mountain Range. The project is being done by
a group based in Berlin, who are fans of Wilhelm Reich and enthusiasts
for the promotion of his work.
The organizers of this project are well-intentioned. But they are hopelessly
out of their depth when it comes to proper planning and carrying out a
cloudbusting project. None of them has any training or qualifications in
ecology, or in fact, in any of the biological sciences. They seem to be
under the impression that training in physics and engineering constitute
qualifications for work in this field.
Nothing could be farther from the truth. The most important qualifications
for successful work with the cloudbuster are a complete understanding of
orgone biophysics and a very extensive knowledge of ecology. The participants
in this ill-advised desert-greening project in Algeria lack both of these
qualifications and must be regarded as laymen in the field.
The Sahara desert is the largest desert on earth. It has been a desert
for only the last 5,000 years or so, and before that, in the period known
as the Climatic Optimum, 6,000 to 8,000 years ago, it was a relatively
lush and well-watered grassland, including some forested areas and vast
wetlands, lakes, and marshes known to modern geologists as the Chad sea,
of which Lake Chad is the last shrunken remnant. This wetland area was
known to the ancient world as Lake Tritonia, from which the name of Triton,
the junior sea god comes.
About 5,350 years ago, the earth intercepted a swarm of highly-charged
meteors in space. The barrage of meteors were mostly detonated in the air
by huge discharges, bolts of cosmic lightning, which destroyed the incoming
meteors in flight. The discharges reduced the net charge of the earth to
a fraction of it's former value, and the global climate was significantly
altered as a result.
This shift in global circulation patterns, combined with a high concentration
of residual DOR from the discharges, caused North Africa to become a desert.
Over the last 2,000 years, the original area of desert has been almost
doubled by the introduction of goats and other livestock by humans.
More recently, between 1958 and 1963, the French government set off a number
of nuclear tests in Southern Algeria. This added to the DOR barrier that
blocks moisture from the Gulf of Guinea from traveling northward into the
desert. There were droughts in the Sahael region on the southern fringe
of the desert at the time, and they have sporadically continued ever since.
There are several different ways in which a cloudbuster could be used to
change the desert into a more fertile land. Unfortunately, most of these
ways are wrong. In considering how to intervene in a climate situation
of long-standing, many factors must be taken into account.
The modern climate regime is one of sparse winter rains from off the North
Atlantic reaching Morocco and passing on east over Algeria. The first thing
many people would think of in planning a cloudbuster project would be to
draw from the North Atlantic in winter to augment the usual seasonal rainfall.
This however, would be a serious mistake.
The seasonal winter rains are an artifact of the modern climate regime
that has only existed for around 5,000 years. That is an insignificant
time in terms of the development of an ecosystem. Most of the native vegetation
that still survives in spite of the desertification is still adapted to
warm summer rains from the south, and subjecting it to cold wet winters
would only add to the stresses upon most native species and drive them
farther toward extinction.
In every region where desertification has taken place, there are small
areas of greater water availability, called "refugia" by biologists,
where native life-forms have managed to hang on, as if patiently waiting
for the return of the wetter conditions, so they could spread out and recolonize
their former range. These refugia act as seed beds from which the lands
which have become deserts will be repopulated with life if the climate
ever returns to what it once was. If they are destroyed by cold to which
they are not adapted, they will be unable to do that if the ancient climate
is ever restored.
It is certainly true that bringing cold winter rains down from the north
will cause a greening of the desert, but most of that greening will be
invasive, cold-tolerant species humans have imported from Europe over the
last 2,000 years, not native species. There will be an increase in biomass,
but at the expense of biodiversity. Many more species of native plant life,
adapted to the ancient pattern of warm summer rains coming up from the
Sahael, will be subjected to more cold and wet than they can handle and
will decline and possibly die out.
At the very minimum, for a cloudbusting project to be considered responsible
would require a botanical census beforehand, counting the number of plants
and the number of different species in a few randomly selected sample acres
before, during, and after the project in order to determine what the effects
on the biodiversity of the region might be. Without such a preliminary
study, it will be impossible to know if some species are being driven to
extinction by the changes in climate. No such study by a botanist was commissioned
by the organizers of this project in Algeria.
Also, since the current pattern of winter rains from the north is a result
of the pathological climate created by the meteor storm, and is maintained
by the DOR fields that block the otherwise normal circulation of the atmosphere,
to draw from the north at that time of year would only increase the pathological
pattern of atmospheric armoring, making it that much harder to eventually
reverse when a properly-done cloudbusting project is finally implemented,
if one ever is.
And, of course, drawing from the north in winter would bring the cold,
wet weather down across Europe, causing unwanted cold in most of Europe.
So the next thing that would occur to the would-be cloudbuster operator
is to draw from the south in the summer, bringing up the summer monsoon
from the Gulf of Guinea across the Sahael to the Sahara. That would avoid
the destruction of the local native species of plants, and not subject
Europe to an unusually harsh winter. It also would not be reinforcing the
current pathological climate pattern, but would be replicating the ancient
pattern, therefore helping the atmosphere recover to it's normal behavior.
At first glance, this would seem the best way to conduct a cloudbusting
project in the desert. After all, it would be duplicating the original
climate of the area, and what could be wrong with that?
Unfortunately, it is not that simple. A prolonged draw from the south in
the summer will bring up summer rains, and the desert will benefit, but
the hot, dry, desert air that was formerly over North Africa will move
north until it is over Europe. There will be a heat wave and drought in
Europe. Then, due to the normal west-to-east motion of the atmosphere,
the hot dry air mass will move eastward until it is over Russia, bringing
an unprecedented heat wave and drought to Russia.
If such long-distance downstream effects are considered, it become obvious
that a summertime draw from the south will not be a good solution to the
desert problem in North Africa either.
Both of the above methods have been tried in recent years. And both have
caused harm. The ecosystem of North Africa has been subjected to extra
stress, native plant species have been decimated, the damaged atmosphere
has been subjected to more damage, and the climate of Europe has been disrupted.
Both the above methods are based on mechanistic thinking. The proper way
to do a desert-greening project for North Africa would be to concentrate
on removal of the DOR blockages that obstruct the inflow of moisture into
the region. If those blocks are reduced or eliminated, the movement of
moisture will take care of itself. And if the areas of high DOR concentration
are broken up and eliminated, there will be no shifting of a hot dry air
mass containing a high concentration of DOR from North Africa to Europe,
and then on to Russia, as apparently happened this past summer.
But to do that, and to do it correctly, with a minimum of long-distance
downstream side-effects, the work would have to be done from the right
locations. And the right locations happen to be a long distance away from
where the current project is underway.
