Some Great Quotes from the article:
"The 1.4 billion of acres of thriving, sprawling biology that cover the Amazon help drive the very metabolism of a continent."
Yes indeed. And every other plant community ecosystem around planet Earth does the same thing for it's surrounding land mass environments. This is not just a tropical rainforest phenomena.
"Clear-cut the land and you could, in effect, clear-cut the sky."
Wow, is it really possible Scientists are actually getting a clue here ? But then is it too late to do anything about it ?
"That improbable idea comes courtesy of a paper just released in the journal Science, the product of work done by researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Chemistry in Mainz, Germany."
Yes sure enough and here are those two articles and their translation to English:
"In forested areas, the carbon compounds are byproducts of plants’ metabolism; in populated areas, they are often from human pollution."
Sure enough, in Southern California (greater Los Angeles area & San Diego) much of that hazy weather which tends to make want to squint a lot outside unless you have sunglasses, is nothing more than the gaseous aerosols from pollution mixed with the natural coastal marine influence. Take a drive up to the mountains and these areas have normally baby blue skies.
"What the researchers found was a mix of carbon compounds, plus one other thing: potassium — and that told them a lot."
And not just potassium salts, but also other aerosols like Isoprenes, Monoprenes, Terpenes, etc which may be google along with the term 'cloud formation' and countless studies pop up to reveal these things have been known for some time now.
"Forest fires often release the element into the air, but there were none burning when Pohlker took the samples. “Since we can rule out the burning source in our samples,” he says, “the other source seemed to be the biosphere itself.” In other words, the forest."
Yes the forest itself is an amazing rain generator, yet this was known from as far back as the 1980s where studies of this phenomena were researched by Professor Leonel da Silveira Lobo O'Reilly Sternberg of University of Miami who also revealed much about the deep root phenomena of Hydraulic Lift and Redistribution and Hydraulic Descent
"Even when that’s done, it’s not clear everyone will be sold on the new findings — or at least on their thoroughness."
Of course not. That's why we have Big Business and the bad science that drives their debased ideas on geoengineering and weather modification (throw GMOs in there as well). These things make for quick profits for owners of these companies and their impatient investors who don't want these technologies researched to wait and see if it's safe or not for the environment.
“Are these particles only relevant directly over the rain forest, or are they lofted by convection and transported to surrounding regions?”
They effect conditions everywhere. Even the California Weather Modification boys and girls based out of northern California know enough to spray their junk far off the coast in out in the Pacific Ocean in front of an approaching storm front in wintertime to create greater water vapor absorption into the clouds to try and bring heavier rainfall to fill up reservoirs for use by big over bloated city populations in the west. Unfortunately much of the silver-iodides, barium sulfates, aluminum and other elements are also falling from the skies and showing up on the ground coating everything in once pristine environments like Mount Shasta. I'm sure this will be a too late study sometime in the future. The Geoengineering gang are behind many of the terrible technologies like HAARP which manipulates electrical and other energy frequencies. They aren't even keeping this a secret any longer. So you should ask yourself:
1 -"Where are they doing this and how do they know such things can be manipulated ?"
2 - "Where in nature have they observed such phenomena and why are they manipulating and intensifying such frequencies to play with the global weather patterns ?"
3 - "Why are they not instead actually replicating nature by rebuilding the environment the way it was originally ?"
There are countless other questions which an individual should ask and some of these I have dealt with in the past, though most readers here may not know of them if you have not checked out my pages on the right hand side of this blog. These pages don't go through the regular feed. All in all I liked the article, though I may disagree with some things. I like the fungal connections to trees observation. Whether or not they give off these compounds or not, these elements never the less come from a healthy pristine forest and they moderate climate through cloud formation and rainfall. The sad thing is such information as pointed out in this article will either be shelved or given some temporary funding for what is termed a "Pilot Program" somewhere. There will be much cheering, congratz, high-fives, backslapping and awards given, but most likely there will never be a massive wholesale application of intensive restoration around the globe as there should be. The planet is loaded with well meaning & the good intentions of ecology "Pilot Programs" but we still have problems. Unless these solutions make or guarantee somebody/s a lot of money, then interest will always be lacking. I fully understand the economics side, but seriously, some things should be done because it's the right thing to do.

"Clear-cutting the land and you could, in effect, clear-cut the sky."
I've got just a couple of examples to reveal with regards other plant community ecosystems which as just as important as rainforests. Unfortunately rainforests seem to get the most attention, which is great. But the entire planet works that same way to varying degrees. I've already listed some in this very blog. There already are a number of inventions utilizing research and information on the subject of this post. These things have been known for a very long time. But mostly such info gets shelved and filed away under subjects of local interest, but we never see the responsible wholesale application of this, even though there may be a few companies pursuing it. But they are outnumbered by conventional science which is obsessed with making their Masters a large profit. Well here is what I've written before. Here they are:
|Wiki - Cahuilla Mountain . Anza, CA|
The 1996 arson set Wildfire destroyed all old growth trees and chaparral on the north & west sides of Cahuilla Mountain on the western end of Anza Valley and completely burned off on the top of the mountain. The previous organized cloud forming phenomena which took place faithfully year after year during the monsoon season which was in no way random in it's observed mechanized formation ceased to function after that event. Myself and several friends noticed this phenomena as far back as back in the early 1980s.
One of my best examples of plant community weather influence is the Chaparral Community. For twenty four years I lived in Anza California and watched every summer's monsoonal flow weather phenomena coming in from the direction of Coyote Canyon to the southeast from Mexico. I'm a little hesitant to go into this very much now as I actually have a deeper draft in this blog's back-office, because I need to photo and document some things first. Back then there were no digital cameras and there was no interest on my part for writing about them other than personal interest and practical application. But in brief, there were three main geographical areas which facilitated cloud formation and Thunderstorm development better and or more often than other areas in and around Anza. One area was called Cahuilla Mountain, another the large land area is located at the southern end boundary of Cahuilla Indian Reservation towards the Buck Snort Mountains & Beauty Peak. The third is an area between Paradise corners jct of Hwys 371/74 east towards Santa Rosa Indian Reservation with Lookout Mountain in the middle. For the first several years I wondered if it was a matter of geographical structure. Moisture pushing up from Mexico being uplifted at these locations, meeting colder air and creating clouds. Unfortunately this could only be said of Cahuilla Mountain and not the other two. The area of southern Cahuilla Indian Reservation are mere foothill steppes leading up higher points. To make this story short there was one component that was identical and all three had in common. None of these three areas had much development or vegetation removal. Most of the vegetation while there was some trees, were predominantly old growth Chaparral. I had always noticed on the morning of a rain event that day when there was only blue skies and no clouds, there was always the moist heavy scent or fragrance of Chaparral aerosols hanging in the air. Mostly these were Creosote Brush coming in from the Borrego Desert floors, or Redshank/Ribbonwood chaparral. If I didn't experience this phenomena then rain was for the most part unlikely.
I'm going to leave it there as I have more details coming in the other post. But anyone can Google for themselves almost any plant, shrub or tree and find info on aerosol releases or other phenomena such as their abilities at Hydraulic Life, Redistribution or Descent. Believe it or not there are some researchers out there that have already done the hard work on this and yet you will never find such terms in most land rehabilitation programs or projects. Seriously when you apply all of this together, it makes for greater understanding of how the biological machinery actually functions and what steps you must take in calculating just what you need to do in rebuilding it. To REPEAT here, the conventional science makes no mention of any of this in the literature. It apparently gets filed away under phenomena of passive interest and never truly sees the light of day for the true value of what it really is.

Let's illustrate it this way. Neon lights work on the principal of electrically charged gases, particularly Argon Gas which lights up at the presence from both ends of the Bulbs tubing of a positive and negative charge which lights up the particles. Clearly the gas particles are a conduit. Though the gases or aerosols given off by plants are not of the same composition, there must clearly be an electrical conductivity component which works within the microscopic particles and moisture given off by the plants that allows for this cloud formation and rainfall. Once again you never find all of these factors together being spoken about with regards this subject, but it should be. The weather modifying equipment prove they understand the concept very well.

This Pinyon Pine forest that is near Los Alamos New Mexico have begun to turn brown from drought stress in the left side image which was taken in 2002. The other photo taken in 2004 from the same vantage point shows the Pinyon Pines largely dead. These plants normally absorb CO2 from the atmosphere, but clearly with changes to the atmosphere today with it's higher than normal CO2 content, there is a shutting down of this water & aerosol combination release which also hinders many components of the cloud formation for which water vapor from the summer monsoonal flow is able to form around these micro-particles which aid in cloud formation. The summertime tropical monsoonal flow events streaming up from Mexico still make their way north, but if the mechanisms below are disrupted in anyway, then the normal pattern of rainfall changes or ceases altogether in many areas. Today's problem is that these areas are widening geographical encompassing greater and greater regions. Eventually we have a runaway train domino effect.

As a parting note, Mike Amaranthus of Mycorrhizal Applications Inc has a latest Video on their Natural World biotechnology with regards to "The Green Economy" and replicating nature which is something mainstream conventional Government Mandated Science has ignored for the most part.Here is a link to the Mycorrhizal Applications Inc You-Tube page with a wealth of educational video material.
Well here's the superstitious storytelling Shaman version of cloud formation and rainfall given to gullible ignorant tribesmen sitting around a camp fire.
