It was announced today in the mainstream media today that Timaru, a district of 49,850 people (2013 census) on the east side of the South Island and largely surrounded by farm land, has, according to the World Health Organisation, the highest air pollution levels in Oceania.
As reported on this website, rainwater tests from Timaru have shown that aluminium, barium and strontium, believed to be from atmospheric aerosols used in clandestine weather modification programs, were present in rainwater samples collected there.
Aerosol trails are being witness there regularly. For example, this comment was left on the website on the 8th of May: “…we are living in Timaru and we are sprayed heavily every single day. The odd day that they don’t do it, we notice because they are rare! It blocks the sun and it burns sometimes in the back of my throat. We don’t know why, but they have been hammering us the last month especially. It’s a relief to know that others are aware, because it seems to us that most are asleep and that’s the way they would like to keep it.”
In addition, a journalist from the Timaru Courier called Al Williams got in contact with me recently, as he was working on a story about all the aerosol trails a McKenzie farmer, named Gareth Watt was seeing. Unfortunately, his article, although completed, was not published.
Controlled mainstream media sources rarely mention the heavy metals in the air that we are all breathing in owing to the criminal activity occurring without our consent.

Last year the city recorded 26 high pollution nights,10 more than Christchurch.
But Environment Canterbury air spokesperson Katherine Trought said it’s still a sharp decrease on the year before when there were 41 high-pollution nights.
“We’re really thrilled with the response the community has had to this better burning message, and it’s coming through reduction and the concentrations of air pollution.”
WHO compared close to 800 cities in 67 countries for levels of small and fine particulate matter called PM10 and PM2.5.
Guidelines state that levels of 10 and 20 micrograms per cubic meter respectively are considered safe.
But in Timaru the annual mean level of PM2.5 was 15 micrograms per cubic meter, and 28 micrograms per cubic meter fro PM10.
Ms Trought said much of that comes down to domestic fires, which people could be burning better.
