I agreed to do the work and immediately reestablished the wall, which promptly remedied the situation. But… then the sheer nonsense
began. They did not accept my conditions about the form of payment and began to propose counter-offers, some of which were simply
ridiculous. In the end I had neither a written agreement for my collaboration nor the contract. I found such behavior of persons in charge very
questionable. I believe that they were just stalling for time, knowing perfectly well that my system was continuing to work. When I realized this,
I suggested they sign the contract and offered to accept payment that was halfway between my initial offer and theirs. Their reply was that they did
not need my services anymore.
And it was perfectly clear to me why they did this: when I again removed the restraining wall, the dangerous part of the season had already
passed and no one expected any further powerful hurricanes.
Evidently, they liked this tactic and decided to take advantage of it again. Thus, on October 23, 2007, they appealed for my help at a time
when the raging fires were already out of control, the weather forecast was promising no relief and the wind blasts were propelling the flames
closer and closer to the nuclear power plant and other critical sites in southern California. I was ready to act immediately and in fact started to
do so, while negotiating the terms of my work. My conditions were an official contract and payment of half the sum up front and half after
completion of my work.
And again they began to play games—"We will not do so-and-so, it will be only this way, etc." One of their conditions was that I discharge
my obligations within a time frame of 24 hours; otherwise there would be no payment, even if the problem were solved by the 25th hour. Most
striking was the fact that for three days the officials only carried on negotiations about what would happen, if they paid me and the problem was
not resolved. They did not want to "risk" losing 50% of the total payment since every day of delay would bring them incommensurably larger
losses. They made a strict demand that I do my work within 24 hours, and at the same time they put off signing the contract for 72 hours. This
may seem ridiculous, but it is not. If we look at what actually happened during those 72 hours, their stalling and maneuvering would not look so
senseless from their position.
First I asked them whether they wanted me to solve the problem of the drought itself, which was the root cause of California’s fires, or should
I only contain the fire, i.e., stop it from spreading. They opted for only containing the fire, most likely hoping that I would reactivate a system similar
to what I had installed in San Francisco in 1992—and that had worked perfectly for 14-1/2 years. Thus, they figured, the problem with the drought
and the containment would be solved simultaneously and they would not have to pay a very large sum of money.
I would like to remind readers that, according to the most conservative calculations, the problem of fresh water supplies will cost the USA
300 billion dollars of additional expenses in the next 30 years! Apparently, the officials were attempting to "kill two birds with one stone." And,
they wanted to kill a “big” bird absolutely free of charge. They obviously liked to get everything I do free of charge, but I do not share their
optimism on this occasion. I see no reason to continue to do it free of charge: life in the USA showed me very clearly that the USA does nothing
60 miles to the north of Los Angeles, California. Above: May, 2007 Below: April, 2003.
American protection of the Hawaiian Islands from possible Japanese invasion during World War II resulted in Hawaii’s becoming the
fiftieth state of the USA; however, no one even asked the Hawaiians if that is what they wanted.
The "help" to Kuwait against Iraqi occupation led to 90% of this country’s oil being controlled by the Americans. And this list can go
on and on. I have my personal reasons to do nothing free of charge for this country, but I will not reveal them to avoid the accusation of my
having a preconceived attitude toward this country.
As soon as they opened negotiations, they knew perfectly well that I would immediately "enter" into the problem, because even if I
only discuss a problem, it starts to be solved. In fact, it is impossible, during a discussion, for me to avoid thinking about the solution!
One way or another, the heavy wind sharply abated, the flames stopped devouring new areas of forests and hills, and the spread of
fire almost ceased. Clouds began to form and extinguish burning areas, but the officials did not give me even a rough copy of the contract.
This made me understand that it was their next game-playing maneuver, which I pointed out to them through my mediator.
However, the American officials did, all the same, get a certain benefit from this game. As a result of my actions, the force of the wind
abated, the temperature dropped dramatically, rain clouds appeared, and rain showers began to dot the land—despite the fact that just prior
to their appeal for help, the weather forecasts were very unfavorable…
It would seem that the American officials got everything they wanted without paying a single dollar for it. My only consolation was
that I, nevertheless, substantially reduced the disastrous consequences for humble Americans, whose homes did not burn down as a result
of my actions.
However, this episode represents only the extinction or containment of fire, but the root cause—the drought—has not disappeared. In
fact, initially I was asked only to contain and extinguish a fire and that was all! But—after fulfilling their request—within a few days the
cloudiness disappeared and a sultry sun continued to scorch an increasingly desiccated and suffering earth. These are not my words, but
weather forecasters’. The drought goes on. Additional expenses of 300 billion dollars intended for the purchase of drinking-water do not
take into account the consequence of the drought for agriculture and also wild-life, for which nobody will purchase water, mainly because
it is impossible to collect money for water from trees and animals.
Do the American officials really think that in the future their game-playing, which they tested out and liked, will work for them again?
Do they really think that next time, if there is a similar appeal, I will again rush to the rescue, counting on their willingness to behave ethically
and to honor their oral commitments? I would like to inform those who think it will happen again—I am ready to help, but only on my conditions.
As for my ability or inability to do the likes of this work at a distance, I have, more than once, actually performed it at a distance.
For example, in August, 2002, while still residing in San Francisco, I was asked whether I could help in coping with the fires that were
raging in Russia at that time. By way of clarification, I was not approached by government representatives, but by people whom I knew
personally and who had already witnessed some of my work. During that very hot summer the peat bogs were burning furiously in Moscow
and its surrounding region, as well as in the enormous forest lands of Siberia and the far eastern regions.
The Russian Ministry of Emergency was unable to do anything with these fires, especially with the burning peat deep under the earth.
There was not a single cloud in the sky nor any storms expected that would bring long-awaited rains. The situation reached a critical level,
especially with the burning peat bogs in Moscow, (or, more precisely former bogs) most of which were drained, especially those located
in close proximity to Moscow.
When told of these events, I decided to intervene: As a result, heavy clouds appeared "from nowhere" almost simultaneously in the
skies of Moscow, Siberia and the far eastern regions. As they hovered over all the forest and peat fires, powerful streams of thunder-showers
erupted, extinguishing forest fires all over Russia and quenching not only open flames but also the peat bogs that were slowly burning near
And for this purpose it was necessary to saturate the earth so that water could reach the deep layers of the peat, where fire can smolder
for many years, "eating" away enormous cavities into the peat, an extraordinarily dangerous situation. During the entire month of September,
2002, Moscow and its adjacent regions were inundated by steady rains which saturated the earth with moisture so that all the peat was s
oaked and there was nothing left to burn.
It was after dealing with this case, I became interested in hearing about similar cases that I might try to solve.
I have never said before nor do I claim now that I know everything and can do everything—but I always try to find the key for solving
a problem and, for the moment, I manage to do it successfully…

P.S. Many States Facing Water Shortages
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (Oct. 26) - An epic drought in Georgia threatens the water supply for millions. Florida doesn't have nearly enough
water for its expected population boom. The Great Lakes are shrinking. Upstate New York's reservoirs have dropped to record lows. And in the West,
the Sierra Nevada snowpack is melting faster each year. Across America, the picture is critically clear - the nation's freshwater supplies can no longer
quench its thirst. Where's all the water? Rivers and lakes in the Southeast, such as Lake Lanier in Cumming, Ga., are turning to dust as the region grapples
with an epic drought.
The government projects that at least 36 states will face water shortages within five years because of a combination of rising temperatures, drought,
population growth, urban sprawl, waste and excess. "Is it a crisis? If we don't do some decent water planning, it could be," said Jack Hoffbuhr, executive
director of the Denver-based American Water Works Association. Water managers will need to take bold steps to keep taps flowing, including conservation,
recycling, desalination and stricter controls on development.
"We've hit a remarkable moment," said Barry Nelson, a senior policy analyst with the Natural Resources Defense Council. "The last century was
the century of water engineering. The next century is going to have to be the century of water efficiency." The price tag for ensuring a reliable water
supply could be staggering. Experts estimate that just upgrading pipes to handle new supplies could cost the nation $300 billion over 30 years.
"Unfortunately, there's just not going to be any more cheap water," said Randy Brown, Pompano Beach's utilities director.
It's not just America's problem - it's global. Australia is in the midst of a 30-year dry spell, and population growth in urban centers of sub-Saharan
Africa is straining resources. Asia has 60 percent of the world's population, but only about 30 percent of its freshwater. The Intergovernmental Panel
on Climate Change, a United Nations network of scientists, said this year that by 2050 up to 2 billion people worldwide could be facing major
Wednesday, June 4, 2008. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger declared drought in California, for the first time since 1991. In other words,
the drought was officially declared for the last time 17 years ago. In my article "The drought" and in my
autobiography I have mentioned that in the beginning of February, 1992 I put en end to the drought in California, which had lasted
for 6 years and by 1991 had reached its critical level which made then Gov. Pete Wilson declare a statewide drought.
After my intervention there have been no problems with water in California for 15 yeas (while I lived there): the reservoirs were
always full, it rained throughout the year, which had never happened before, etc. I left California and the USA in Augusts 22, 2006 and …
the drought returned. By the spring of 2008 it had reached the critical level.
"LOS ANGELES — Its reservoir levels receding and its grounds parched, California has fallen officially into drought, Gov.
Arnold Schwarzenegger said Wednesday, warning that the state might be forced to ration water to cities and regions if conservation efforts
did not improve.
The drought declaration — the first for the state since 1991 — includes orders to transfer water from less dry areas to
those that are dangerously dry. Mr. Schwarzenegger also said he would ask the federal government for aid to farmers and press water
districts, cities and local water agencies to accelerate conservation. Drought conditions have hampered farming, increased water rates
throughout California and created potentially dangerous conditions in areas prone to wildfires.
The declaration comes after the driest California spring in 88 years, with runoff in river basins that feed most reservoirs at 41 percent
of average levels. It stops short of a water emergency, which would probably include mandatory rationing.
Efforts to capture water have also been hampered by evaporation of some mountain snowpacks that provide water, an effect, state
officials say, of global climate change.
A survey this year found that the state’s snowpack water content was 67 percent of average, and the Colorado River Basin, from
which California draws some water, is coming off a record eight-year drought, contributing to the drop in reservoir storage."
Drought in California")
An odd fact draws attention here: now The New York Times suddenly mentions "global climate change." Does this mean that
there was no "global climate change" from February, 1992 to August 2006? Obviously, everything was all right with the climate, when I
have lived in California for 15 years. No one even mentioned "global climate change," because there were enough water for everything, it
frequently rained, snowpacks were perfectly “in order”. But the drought was before my arrival and appeared immediately after my
"The drought declaration, made when reservoir levels are far higher than they were when Gov. Pete Wilson issued a similar
statement in 1991 — is as much a political statement as a practical one. Mr. Schwarzenegger is pressing the Legislature to approve an
$11.9 billion water bond as part of the state budget to pay for water storage and to fix the state’s aging water delivery systems."
California, the richest state in the USA, lacks for its own funds and asks for the additional $11.9 billion to combat the drought.
Regrettably, even if California receives this money, almost nothing would change. This money is a drop in the bucket – they are unable
to saturate the suffering dry land with water…
On June 8, 2008 I wrote the second addendum to my article «The Drought», where I informed my readers that on June 4, 2008 the
Gov. of the state of California, Mr. Arnold Schwarzenegger declared state of emergency due to the drought which has already lasted
for two years. It started right after my departure from the USA in August, 2006, and by May, 2008 has reached the critical level.
Unfortunately for California, the situation in this state did not improved in the beginning of June. Moreover, it became considerably
worse. If in 2007 the raging fires in California began at the end of October, in 2008 devastating conflagrations already started in June!
By June, 28, the area of forests engulfed in flame was 107 thousands of hectares!
In 2007 the representatives of high echelons of the US government appealed for help twice since I had left this country. The first
appeal was at the end of August, 2007. Some top level officials of the Pentagon asked me not to dispose of the anti-hurricane wall
which I created along the eastern coast of the USA in 2005.
For twenty years I have solved problems many of which might have become global catastrophes with all effluent consequences
for our earth civilization. I succeeded in dealing with these problems and I never sought either glory here or gratitude for what I had
done. I did what I did, because my soul and my conscience required this. When I succeeded in finding a "key" for the solution of one
or another problem, and the latter disappeared as a result of my actions, the whole my being was filled with the endless gladness,
because I succeeded in doing THIS! Certainly, I would not have minded, if someone had thanked me for what I had done, but when
this did not happened, I was not upset. In fact, I did not do the work for the sake of gratitude and honours, but because of the call of
But to my surprise, those in power did not only show any gratitude for my actions, but they did their best in order to eliminate
me and later my wife Svetlana, using all means they only could think of. In particular, the US powerful circles showed a striking
ingenuity in this kind of "activity"—I will write about this in my autobiography. When they had failed in eliminating us physically,
they began to play on us one dirty trick after another. Therefore, when I was asked not to remove my anti-hurricane wall, I had already
had no illusions about who appeals to me, and I did not have the least desire to do the work for them for free.
Therefore, I informed the interested side that they would have to pay for my anti-hurricane wall and conclude an official contract
with me. The American side agreed to sign the contract, but informed that they were able to pay me only the half of the sum which
I had inquired. I agreed to this, as well as to some other suggestions they had made which I considered to be reasonable. During
these negotiations the restraining wall continued functioning. I even informed them that I succeeded in making some improvements
It seemed that everything was all right, but… then the Americans began to play games. They informed me through their
intermediary that they had a person "Õ" who was able to do what I did. It became clear for me that it was a bluff, because, if they
had had such person in reality, they would have NEVER appealed to me.
Every day they invented new excuses in order to procrastinate the signing of the contract. Meanwhile, I knew that they were
preparing a presentation of their “subject Õ” in the high governmental circles of the USA. Thus, my suspicions about their
dishonesty were confirmed. They delayed the signing of the contract with me on purpose, in order to that on September 15, 2007
they could officially declare that it was their “subject Õ” called Sergey who had done the work!
If top echelons of the US government had made this kind of statement, it would have been very difficult for me to prove that
it was exactly me who had done this work, in spite of the fact that I have given the information about this kind of phenomena via
my site for already several years. But, how many people have read my articles!? Besides, many articles were not translated into
English then and, therefore, most of the English-speaking world was unaware of my activity.
I have no doubts whatsoever that the special services read my articles and materials, but… people were taught that every
more or less important event must be reflected in mass media, and if this is not so, then the person lies or is simply mad. This
time they failed in discrediting me. I informed the American side that I gave them three days they signed the contract on neutral
When they understood that they could not play games any longer, they declared that they did not need my services anymore
and, moreover, blamed me for the unwillingness to meet their wishes! My answer to all this was the immediate disposal of the
anti-hurricane wall. It happened on September 4, 2007, about which I informed them via my site. But, while they gained time
and delayed signing of the contract, the dangerous part of the hurricane season had already passed and as a result they got
from me what they had desired without paying. To put it straight, the Americans simply cheated me. But they failed in
discrediting me, and at least this was positive. There was no presentation of the "subject Õ" in high circles.
The highest officials of the US government appealed for my help for the second time when devastating fires in southern
California had come dramatically close to the nuclear objects, and the situation had become supercritical. This time the
Americans appealed via the person who I respected and, in spite of the fact that everything took place at the highest level,
they again acted in the same way as they did in case of the anti-hurricane wall, about which I have already written in the
above article. I neutralized the fire; they wanted just this. Thus, the Americans cheated me twice.
But this also is not all. After they had got from me everything they wanted, they tried to discredit me, telling semi-officially
that I was a swindler and everything that I had done was the work of another person, the "subject X" called Sergey who was
charged to play my part. All this had another implication which does not have direct concern to the material I expound and,
therefore, there is no sense to write about it now.
