We are all familiar with the white lines that can be seen criss-crossing the sky on most clear days. Air traffic has long left behind their white mark. Conventional wisdom is that condensed and frozen airplane exhaust account for the trails, known as contrails. But, many people believe that some of the trails are not typical airplane exhaust but something more sinister known as chemtrails. And even if you dismiss the chemtrail argument, there has been much more lines in the sky since the 1970’s. And that isn’t good news either.
The chemtrail conspiracy theory purports that some trails that are left by aircraft are actually chemical or biological agents deliberately sprayed at high altitudes for an unknown purpose by the government. The existence of chemtrails has repeatedly been denied by government agencies and scientists around the world who maintain the trails are just contrails. The United States Air Force insists that the theory is a hoax which “has been investigated and refuted by many established and accredited universities, scientific organizations, and major media publications”.
Supporters of chemtrail theory have different ideas about why the chemicals are being sprayed. Some speculate that the purpose of the chemical release may be for solar radiation management, population control, weather control, or biological warfare/chemical warfare and claim that these trails are causing respiratory illnesses and other health problems. Proponents of the chemtrail theory say that chemtrails can be distinguished from contrails by their long duration, asserting that the chemtrails are those trails left by aircraft that persist for as much as a half day or transform into cirrus-like clouds. According to the U.S. Air force, contrails are the result of normal emissions of water vapor from piston engines and jet engines at high altitudes in which the water vapor condenses into a visible cloud. The rate at which contrails disperse depends on weather conditions and altitude. In very humid conditions, the contrail may last a while. If the air is dry, the contrail will scatter quickly.
In 2001, U.S. Representative Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) introduced a measure that would have permanently prohibited the basing of weapons in space, and he listed chemtrails as one of a number of exotic weapons that would be banned. The bill died in committee and no further mention of chemtrails appeared in Kucinich’s subsequent attempts to enact a Space Preservation Act.
Scientists believe that contrails have increased since the 1970s, primarily because of a change in the atmospheric pressure pattern known as the Arctic Oscillation. It influences weather in northern, middle and high latitudes. Climatologists suggest that the change may be related to global warming.
Whether the white lines of cloud are chemtrails or contrails, the increasing number is something to be worried about. If our own government doesn’t kill us, then our own pollution will.
