Barium is a chemical element, it has the symbol Ba, and atomic number 56. Barium is a soft silvery metallic alkaline earth metal and is never found in nature in its pure form due to its reactivity with air. Its oxide is historically known as baryta but it reacts with water and carbon dioxide and is not found as a mineral. The most common naturally occurring minerals are the very insoluble barium sulfate, BaSO4 (barite), and barium carbonate, BaCO3 (witherite). Benitoite is a rare gem containing barium.
It is a metallic element that is chemically similar to calcium but more reactive. This metal oxidizes very easily when exposed to air and is highly reactive with water or alcohol, producing hydrogen gas. Burning in air or oxygen produces not just barium oxide (BaO) but also the peroxide. Simple compounds of this heavy element are notable for their high specific gravity. This is true of the most common barium-bearing mineral, its sulfate barite BaSO4, also called ‘heavy spar’ due to the high density (4.5 g/cm³).
It has some medical and many industrial uses:
* Barium compounds, and especially barite (BaSO4), are extremely important to the petroleum industry. Barite is used in drilling mud, a weighting agent in drilling new oil wells.
* Barium sulfate is used as a radiocontrast agent for X-ray imaging of the digestive system (“barium meals” and “barium enemas”).
* Barium carbonate is a useful rat poison and can also be used in making bricks. Unlike the sulfate, the carbonate dissolves in stomach acid, allowing it to be poisonous.
* An alloy with nickel is used in spark plug wire.
* Barium oxide is used in a coating for the electrodes of fluorescent lamps, which facilitates the release of electrons.
* The metal is a “getter” in vacuum tubes, to remove the last traces of oxygen.
* Barium carbonate is used in glassmaking. Being a heavy element, barium increases the refractive index and luster of the glass.
* Barite is used extensively in rubber production.
* Barium nitrate and chlorate give green colors in fireworks.
* Impure barium sulfide phosphoresces after exposure to the light.
* Lithopone, a pigment that contains barium sulfate and zinc sulfide, is a permanent white that has good covering power, and does not darken in when exposed to sulfides.
* Barium peroxide can be used as a catalyst to start an aluminothermic reaction when welding rail tracks together. It can also be used in green tracer ammunition.
* Barium titanate was proposed in 2007[1] to be used in next generation battery technology for electric cars.
* Barium Fluoride is used in infrared applications.
* Barium is a key element in YBCO superconductors.

History

Barium (Greek barys, meaning “heavy”) was first identified in 1774 by Carl Scheele and extracted in 1808 by Sir Humphry Davy in England. The oxide was at first called barote, by Guyton de Morveau, which was changed by Antoine Lavoisier to baryta, from which “barium” was derived to describe the metal.

Occurrence

Because barium quickly becomes oxidized in air, it is difficult to obtain this metal in its pure form. It is primarily found in and extracted from the mineral barite which is crystallized barium sulfate. Barium is commercially produced through the electrolysis of molten barium chloride (BaCl2)

Compounds
The most important compounds are barium peroxide, barium chloride, sulfate, carbonate, nitrate, and chlorate.

Isotopes
Naturally occurring barium is a mix of seven stable isotopes. There are twenty-two isotopes known, but most of these are highly radioactive and have half-lives in the several millisecond to several minute range. The only notable exceptions are 133Ba which has a half-life of 10.51 years, and 137Ba (2.55 minutes).

Precautions
All water or acid soluble barium compounds are extremely poisonous. At low doses, barium acts as a muscle stimulant, while higher doses affect the nervous system, causing cardiac irregularities, tremors, weakness, anxiety, dyspnea and paralysis. This may be due to its ability to block potassium ion channels which are critical to the proper function of the nervous system.
Barium sulfate can be taken orally because it is highly insoluble in water, and is eliminated completely from the digestive tract. Unlike other heavy metals, barium does not bioaccumulate. However, inhaled dust containing barium compounds can accumulate in the lungs, causing a benign condition called baritosis.
Oxidation occurs very easily and, to remain pure, barium should be kept under a petroleum-based fluid (such as kerosene) or other suitable oxygen-free liquids that exclude air.
Barium acetate could lead to death in high doses. Marie Robards poisoned her father with the substance in Texas in 1993. She was tried and convicted in 1996.

BIGGER FOLLOW-UP (TO “SODA POP” LEADER)

soda-pop-1

ADDRESSED TO YOUTUBE “CHEMTRAIL” VIDEO SITES

Jet engines MAKE soda pop. Decane is the chemical name for aviation kerosine, or JP-8*. The combustion formula goes:
2*C10H22 + 31*O2 -> 20*CO2 + 11*H2O, or
DECANE + OXYGEN -> CARBON DIOXIDE + WATER

And as MOST OF US know:

CARBON DIOXIDE + WATER = FIZZYPOP

*JP-8 is modern aviation kerosine. It is safer, with a higher flashpoint that the JP-4 it has superseded. It has anti-corrosion and anti-gelling additives, but does NOT contain Ethylene Dibromide (which was once used to dissolve the lead oxide produced by tetra-ethyl lead anti-knock gasoline).

There could be THREE OR MORE transparent layers of air of DIFFERENT HUMIDITIES, only ONE of which condenses (at -40 deg) an ICE CRYSTAL TRAIL, within the short-haul civil aircraft band between 30 and 35 thousand feet. Layer thicknesses of differing humidity are frequently only hundreds of feet thick, and aircraft are spaced ten miles apart on the same level for a particular route, and conflicting routes are typically 2000ft above or below each other.

So you’ll see SOME planes laying ice crystal trails while others don’t – it depends which transparent stratospheric layer the plane is flying through. These layers themselves aren’t perfectly flat – they roughly conform to the ground profile AND any rising CUMULUS clouds. So even if the plane flies straight and level, it may be the layer it is in slopes gently down or up, and an ice crystal trail either appears or disappears. You have to remember these layers, though different, are ALWAYS themselves transparent.

So you can’t SEE them. You can only see which layer is really humid by a plane throwing a “vapor trail” in it. Typically stratospheric layers begin ABOVE the TROPOPAUSE, which is where our ground level weather STOPS. The layers vary in thickness, more densely packed close to the TROPOPAUSE, thinning out to nothing much above twelve miles up. It’s very smooth and calm up there (although it may have a high speed with respect to the ground).

panic-2
Unlike what it is DOWN HERE. This rising panic ensues from an under-educated public. Had you all been properly taught about the weather as schoolchildren, this would be a NON-TOPIC.

Respiratory ailments may well be on the increase, but so is the planting of unusual crops which emit unusual pollens, auto fumes are still on the increase, and urban photochemical smogs are also on the increase. It is known (by some) that the COMBINATION of pollens, auto fumes, and urban smog can cause severe auto-immune failure, asthma, and death in the young, weak, or elderly.

auto

If there are MORE “vapor trails” in the sky than there used to be, then the answer is that there is MORE AVIATION TRAFFIC and MORE WATER IN THE ATMOSPHERE. It isn’t very wise to look upwards and blame “soda pop” for combinatory effects which are happening down here, solely because you can’t understand how the atmosphere works. It certainly doesn’t help you to find a REAL solution to the REAL problem.

Video posts like this are WRONG, and risk scenarios as HARMFUL as a TSUNAMI.

Would YOU call a tsunami EVIL? No you wouldn’t, because a tsunami lacks INTENT.

Would I call this video post EVIL?

  3. Here’s what I don’t understand. Been going through all of the facts and cases presented for and against the existence of chemtrails. But what no one can explain – why are there such high levels of aluminum scattered all over my 200 acre farm. I am nowhere near any highways, other farms, industrial plants, commercial areas, nothing. Out of the blue about 5 or 6 years ago, I noticed some of my trees and plants weren’t blooming in the spring like they’ve been doing for close to 50 years now. I had my son test the ph level of our soil, and it goes down every year. Our soil is almost entirely neutral at this point. And if anyone knows about soil, neutral is NOT good. That means NOTHING can grow. So we had more tests done, and sure enough LARGE amounts of Aluminum found on the surface our land, at the top of our trees. It was incredible. I can’t understand this. I’ve had scientists from Penn State come out, and they can’t explain it either. One of them mentioned Geoengineering, and I’ve been researching ever since. It’s gotten really bad now, that I would say about 30% of our trees have died, and literally shriveled up and rotted. I’ve never seen this. I’m having some samples sent to various laboratories to see if they can explain the cause of death. I’m not saying chemtrails did this. I’m just saying, what is going on? What thing I did find odd was a flyer our farm received from a local seed distributor selling ‘environmentally resistant’ seeds. What in the hell is environmentally resistant seeds? And why do I need my seeds to be environmentally resistant? Something just isn’t right. If you have any answers, it would be greatly appreciated. Our entire way of life and that of my local community depends on our farm. We’ve been feeding the locals for well over 50 years now without any problems, and then all of a sudden in a matter of a 5 year period EVERYTHING has gone wrong. What is going on? Any help or if you can point me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

    • Hello Grace, I’ll do my best, but the depth of my understanding springs not from so much in the way of farming experience, but more in the way of someone fascinated by Bill Morrison’s idea of “Permaculture” for the last thirty years. That was predated by my love of all things to be found within the Whole Earth Catalogue. So I am concerned…
      Firstly, 8% of the Earth’s crust is composed of aluminum. That means 8% of rocky dust, 8% of normal earth, and 8% of rock too. It is normally found as a complex silicate with intimate associations with water, and you will know it as CLAY. It’s aluminum silicate. It STAYS unreactive while the surrounding water is neutral or alkaline, but gives up the ghost to sulfuric acid, forming soluble aluminum sulfate – and a fine sand. In sufficiently acid conditions, aluminum becomes apparent, soluble (and poisonous to vegetation), but in neutral or alkaline conditions everything’s hunky-dory.
      This is all very well, until industrial activities start putting sulfur dioxide gas into the atmosphere. There it picks up an extra oxygen atom and a water molecule to fall as – sulfuric acid.
      “Stop emissions of SO2” I hear you say. That’s not so easy. Sulfur is intimately combined in coal and petroleum, and needs to be scrubbed out using expensive processes. This is why you smell car exhausts. Carbon combustion products have little or no smell, whereas with sulfur combustion products the exact opposite applies: they ALL stink.
      So you can be happily gardening or farming away, and some shift in wind direction can bring you from anywhere a large concentration of such industrial pollution, and the acidity of your soil can rise by a point per day. The aluminum will leach out of your clay in soluble form and start to interfere with plant metabolism. All of it…
      So don’t waste your time worrying about aluminum. It’s ALWAYS there in your soil. Instead, worry about ACIDITY. Get yourself a few tons of LIMESTONE, and spread it on your soil. Readings of aluminum will diminish to nothing as the soil returns to slightly alkaline, and all your problems will disappear.
      If your soil has been severely acidulated, then it will probably pay you to add trace elements back the soil to compensate for other materials leached by the strong acid.
      Oh by the way, NEUTRAL is NOT a bad condition for soil to be in. The real considerations are to do with plant preferences, as some prefer acid, and other prefer alkaline conditions.
      Soils tend to be more acid in regions of tundra, moors, mountains and swamps. They tend to the alkaline in savannah, plains, and deserts.
      Your “scientists” appear to have mislead you. It’s all down to acidity – “acid rain” if you like, though really it’s the sulfur dioxide gas that is causing you problems. This may have been emitted hundreds of miles away from you, and be exactly as inconstant as the wind. You can fix it with lime and trace elements. Don’t worry. Get going!

      • Could it be the chemicals they use to fluoridate water that is the culprit also? Sodium Hexafluorosilicate and Fluorosilicic Acid, sulferic acid is part of that process…..

      • No. Mountains are 8% aluminum by weight. They may dissolve in acid rain.

  4. I understand everything you have said and appreciate your effort to explain these phenomena’s to us uneducated urchins with a need to understand mentality, really I do mean I appreciate your time, but do you think it might be in your future to maybe do a write up on what exactly solar radiation management is and how they manage solar radiation ? and maybe some input added on the dangers of refraction and U/V solar radiation where aerosols ,clouds ,smoke , or other suspended particles might be something of a concern to humans or plants and animals.?

    thanks.

    • “phenomena’s” – “phenomena” is already the plural of “phenomenon”, from the Greek.
      “do you think it might be in your future to maybe do a write up on what exactly solar radiation management is and how they manage solar radiation ?” – No, I don’t. Solar radiation isn’t ‘managed’ by ‘them’.
      “The dangers of refraction” – there are no dangers with refraction. “U/V solar radiation” – will always exist. It will increase if we allow the Ozone Layer to thin. “Aerosols” – are produced in far greater quantities by forests and the oceans, than they are by Man. “Clouds” can be dangerous when they obscure a pilot’s vision, or their turbulence disturbs a passing aircraft. “Smoke” is produced by burning forests. “Suspended particles” are produced by desert winds and volcanoes. All these in far greater quantities than Man.
      “Might be something of a concern to humans or plants and animals” – True, in that many plants and animals depend on these atmospheric features, and being further up the food chain, so might we. Keep up with your education.
