Air Quality is Terrible Due to Rampant Geoeningeering

There is rampant geoengineering going on overhead all week every week. People here are getting chronically sick because of the air pollution from geoengineering. Our gardens were all dying last year in mid-summer. Everyone has migraines, chronic sinus problems, chronic tinnitus and vertigo -- recurring over and over. The air is so filled with toxins due to this program that it often smells stuffy and like chemicals. The sky is never blue - not even on a blue sky day. There is a dry white haze every afternoon. They are trashing this place. I would not move here unless you want an asthma inhaler.
