- Dear sirs:
- As disreputable as it can be to engage in the unethical
and underhanded, it can be as vile to know about the unscrupulous, and
not acknowledge its existence.
- The past few years has seen an unusual occurrence in
the skies over the country.
- Several or more times a month, jet planes, flying overhead,
would start leaving unorthodox trails in the sky. Instead of the normal
kind of contrails, usually accredited to jet aircraft, which stretch for
a short distance behind the tail of the jet, and dissipate, as the sun
warms and evaporates the ice crystals in the tails, these would stretch,
generally, from horizon to horizon. Jets would fly overhead, spouting white,
straight, thin clouds behind them, but, instead of disappearing quickly,
they would persist stubbornly, forming a long path across the sky.
- The lane of cloud laid, then, would start to spread,
side to side. Over the space of up to several hours, it would hang in the
air, expanding. As it spread, it would thin, but not enough to completely
evaporate. Indeed, apparently, never does a chemtrail actually evaporate!
Instead, it would form a haze, sometimes even oily in appearance, from
one side of the sky to the other, marking the path the jet took, but many,
many times wider.
- As the substance left behind by the passing plane slowly
spread across the sky, it would come to be joined by one, then another,
then another, as other jets covered the same area of sky. Eventually -
in a very short time, in fact! - the entire sky could be covered with a
wispy haze, and what was once a crystal clear day, now wouldn,t show a
single patch of blue! And what sun did manage to shine through could, often,
be accompanied by an oily, multi-colored reflection from the substance
now lying thickly overhead.
- This has been a commonplace in the United States, and
apparently, numerous other countries, as well, for about six years now!
Those who examine these phenomena have termed them "chemtrails",
to distinguish them from contrails, and to emphasize the evident presence
of foreign substances in the clouds. Since about 1997, these tracks have
been a constant presence in the skies of the country.
- Sometimes, they can be in parallel lines.
- Sometimes, there can be several.
- Sometimes, there can be many, all at once.
- Sometimes, they can be curved.
- Sometimes, they can form "X",s.
- Sometimes, they form "H",s.
- Sometimes, they can form more elaborate patterns.
- Sometimes, they will form the collections of lines called
"spider webs" or "grids".
- Sometimes, they will form what is called the "fan
- And, often, strange and even abnormal and bizarre effects
can also be observed.
- And, when the trails appear, they can cause many different
effects, besides ruining the appearance of a day.
- In some places afflicted by chemtrails, it is reported,
for example, that, shortly afterward, heavy rains, likely induced by the
trails, will form. But these rains, often, will rain down strange materials,
evidently from the tracks in the sky.
- Some rainfalls will produce a thick, viscous, reddish
material covering trees, cars and houses. Sometimes, a fine, spider web-like
substance will be evident everywhere. And, often, residents living below
the clouds will begin to experience serious symptoms, from headache to
muscle aches to nausea to difficulty breathing to bloody noses! Many describe
the symptoms as similar to flu and, indeed, in areas over which the chemtrails
are formed, it is reported, advertisements for volunteers in a study of
flu will appear in local newspapers a couple of days before the onslaught
of chemicals in the sky.
- Attempts at analysis have been attempted by numerous
individuals determined to find out what is being done to the people, and
frequently opposed by evident betrayers of the public mandate. The analyses
that have been attempted have yielded constituents of the chemtrails ranging
from ethylene dibromide to aluminum chaff to barium oxide to pseudonomas
fluoroscens and pseudonomas aeruginosa.
- Ethylene dibromide is a compound which, due to its fire
repellant properties, has been added to JP-4 jet fuel to produce JP-8 fuel.
It is a potent pesticide, which has also been listed by the EPA as one
of the deadliest chemicals known.
- Aluminum chaff is powder, as fine as talc, used to scramble
- Barium oxide is a crystalline compound purportedly useful
for reflecting radio signals, supposedly making it possible to transmit
over the curve of the earth.
- Pseudonomas fluoroscens is a bacteria capable of producing
potent, flu-like symptoms. Pseudonomas aeruginosa, on the other hand, is
considered one of the deadliest pathogens known.
- These are only a few of the unusual materials found in
abnormal abundance after chemtrail appearances in many parts of the country!
In their wake, numerous theories have been advanced for their presence.
- Aluminum chaff has been suggested as being used to prevent
terrorist communications from being successful in the country.
- Barium oxide has been proposed to be being employed to
facilitate American military and governmental broadcasts across the nation
and overseas. It has also been linked to the generally obscure, but technically
public, HAARP project. HAARP stands for High Frequency Active Auroral Research
Program. It resides on a site apparently more than a mile square, near
Galcona, Alaska. The purpose of the site is an almost 30 acre array of
180 antennas. They represent their intent to be to develop methods of using
the earth,s aurora to facilitate communication and as an espionage tool.
Barium oxide crystals are believed effective in this.
- Ethylene dibromide and the numerous pathogens often found
in abundance after massive chemtrail presence over an area have led to
considerations that everything from eugenics to wholesale destruction of
populations is an aim of the apparent campaign of serial spraying over
- Other theories such as weather manipulation and control
of global warming have been advanced for the spraying in the skies over
the nation. The fact that rainstorms are often claimed to result from chemtrails
in the Pacific Northwest can relate to this, but, in that area, many of
the instances of severe sickness after chemtrails have also been reported.
- In fact, though, it is often possible to raise objections
to each theory, and that fact is frequently employed by those who call
themselves "debunkers" to criticize, demean and even baldly ridicule
those who want an answer to the issue of chemtrails! It is possible to
counter each theory, it appears, because, in fact, no one is universally
correct! It appears that many different purposes are being served by chemtrails,
and, for each, different substances are being sprayed into the air. To
claim one unique purpose for every case of aerial spraying is to run the
risk of not identifying correctly what is being done in each particular
- For example, in the Northeastern part of the United States,
chemtrails have been a prevalent sight for some time, now. However, there,
they rarely, if ever, precipitate a rainstorm. Indeed, in that part of
the country, the purpose of chemtrails seems to be to forestall rainfall.
- Since at least winter of 2002, that part of the country
has experienced massive drought. Reservoir levels are down almost to record
lows, if not actually below them! Yet, in that time, chemtrailing has been
very frequent! In fact, it had become a pattern that forecasters would
predict showers or even thunderstorms a couple of days ahead, then chemtrails
would be seen in abundance in the sky, and, afterward, the predicted precipitation
would not come! The region would be lucky if it got a misting on days when,
previously, thunderstorms were forecast. This went on through most of the
winter of 2002, and has begun, again, the past couple of months.
- The reason for this seems to be that, in the Northeast,
the purpose of chemtrails was to disturb the process that can generate
- In general, a rainstorm can occur if warm, wet air rises
particularly quickly into an overlying cold area. This can result in the
rapid cooling of water into clouds like thunderheads. The sudden, uncontrolled
invasion of wet air into cool air seems to spawn many of the systems that
give rise to rainstorms.
- What chemtrails seem to have been used to accomplish,
for at least the past year in the Northeast, has been to steadily gently
mix the air at the boundary layers between air masses. Flying in the border
between wet and cold air, the chemtrails seem to have been intended to
control the rate and degree of mixing of the air, allowing cloud banks
to form, but not swiftly and suddenly. Wispy but not stormy cirrus clouds
were the inevitable result, each time, the sky hazing over into a sheet
of white, but never cumulous clouds.
- Among other things countering the "arguments"
of debunkers that chemtrails are only normal contrails, and not some kind
of controlled program on the part of government, is that, when chemtrails
formed in the Northeast, for at least the past year, cumulous clouds never
formed! If chemtrails were harmless and innocuous paths of water vapor
from random jets, there would have to have been at least one case when
cumulous clouds formed, following such an onslaught.
- But they never did.
- The only reason any relief was seen in the past year
in the Northeast was that chemtrails were not always laid immediately prior
to an expected storm system. For a period, near the end of winter 2002,
and into the beginning of spring 2002, chemtrails were not laid, just before
storm fronts were expected.
- When a storm was predicted, and chemtrails were not produced
in the sky, the storm, generally, occurred.
- Chemtrails have come to be watched for, reported and
examined by a number of people. There have even been a number of web sites
devoted to the subject. They include sites such as www.carnicom.com, www.chemtrailcentral.com
- In the last of the letters we sent, we outlined the means
whereby chemtrails could be used to prevent rain and promote drought.
- Immediately following them, the chemtrails slacked off
in the Northeast, rains picked up and the drought lessened significantly.
- The connection is not easily deniable, if at all.
- But a deliberate, planned nature of the phenomena is
- Certainly, the chemtrails utilized in the Northeast,
for about the last year, follow a pattern apparently geared toward controlling
the mixing of air layers.
- Once they begin, they generally last for between four
and six hours. They can occur twice in a day, but not often. They have
been known to occur at night, also.
- Not only do they evidently prevent cumulus clouds from
forming, these chemtrails almost never occur on a day when there are cumulus
clouds in the sky! Once the clouds characteristic of the kind of chaotic
mixing of air masses, that produces rainstorms, are present, it seems the
purpose of the chemtrails in the Northeast is obviated, so they aren't
- They generally do not occur, too, on very windy days,
but they occur more during windy days than on days with cumulus clouds.
On windy days, there, generally, isn't an air layer overlying another,
so the object of chemtrails seems nonexistent, for the most part, then.
- They also seem to occur more often on warm days, than
on cold, or on the warmest day in a span of days.
- Chemtrails in other parts of the country may be for other
purposes, and so may not be laid in the same patterns as those in the Northeast
- those in the Pacific Northwest, for example, may be intended to facilitate
the operation of the HAARP project, only a short ways north, in Alaska
- but the serious drought conditions that afflicted the country, this year,
seem to indicate that that was a purpose for many of those observed in
the last few months.
- There seems little plausible reason - if any - to doubt
that chemtrails are deliberately produced, and not normal contrails.
- Unsurprisingly, however, though, there are those who
seek to oppose the assertions of those who contend that chemtrails are
abnormal, and should be stopped. Apparently calculatedly, they term themselves
"debunkers", to inculcate the perception that concern over chemtrails
is, more than "misguided", an out-and-out hoax or fraud! Indeed,
a number of them have used the term "hoax" in describing the
concern over chemtrails - evidently suggesting that those who address the
issue are actually pulling a prank on themselves - and even accused some
who pursue the issue of doing it purely for personal profit.
- As if someone choosing to try to make a profit off a
situation suddenly makes that situation not exist.
- Many have tried to hawk fake nostrums to eliminate the
symptoms of the common cold, but that doesn't make the common cold nonexistent.
Moreover, the "debunkers" regularly tout the software, Flight
Explorer, to "identify" aircraft using routes where chemtrails
form. Not only do they, apparently, wish to negate the existence of chemtrails
by simply calling them contrails, they seem to want to convince the public
that they arise from innocuous, harmless aircraft simply because unidentified,
unverified information a piece of software displays on a screen says it
- They try to "counsel" people against using
the guidance of their eyes and their common sense in chemtrails; they,
instead, apparently, want them to blindly obey "the official story".
- Indeed, such faulty "reasoning", coupled with
an attitude of guile and contempt, seems universally to characterize the
- As their own "explanation" of the phenomenon,
they carp the common line that "under certain precise conditions of
temperature, pressure and humidity, water vapor from jet exhaust will act
as the nuclei for condensation of water in the air around the jet"
The preciseness of the conditions, evidently, is intended to "explain"
why all jet trails are not the elongated, long lasting sight that chemtrails
are. But, within at least the last year, days with chemtrails constitute
no less than about a third of the entire year! In many cases, we woke up
to already hazed over skies, indicating that chemtrailing had been done
before dawn, or deformed, but elongated, wispy clouds would be present
in the sky, indicating that chemtrails had been laid elsewhere, and drifted
to where we were. As a result, chemtrail days constitute no less than one
third, and, sometimes, no less than 40%, of the days! Far from a "precise"
set of circumstances.
- If you add in the fact that, even after chemtrails may
have passed, persistent haze can remain in the upper atmosphere, turning
the sky a sickish white, or limiting the blueness of the natural sky that
is permitted to show through, you have that no more than two or three genuinely
blue sky days are permitted per month, anymore! Chemtrail opponents list
this as one of their primary complaints with chemtrails, as well, the simple
fact that they are being systematically robbed of their blue sky.
- Only a few decades ago, summer could guarantee weeks
worth of clear, blue days. Now, to have just one is an event, at least
in the Northeast. During the past summer, in Northern New Jersey, there
haven't been more than five or six days, all told, that were bright blue.
- Nor is this an insignificant thing. Substituting bright
blue days with heavily overcast, low-hanging skies, or persistent mists,
instead of the kind of rain that will clear a sky of haze, produces a listless
even despondent atmosphere. Over time, it can depress individuals and even
sap them of initiative.
- Experiments during the Seventies and Eighties, in fact,
suggested that certain colors can promote certain types of responses. Pink
was found, in some, to have a calming effect; brown and orange were found
to stimulate appetite; and bright, light blue was found to promote imagination.
Isolation cells in a number of jails, as a result of this, were painted
pink, and the prevalence of browns, oranges and reds in the color schemes
of fast food restaurants, during the Eighties, is testament to an evident
unscrupulousness in their "marketing" tactics! Withholding clear
skies from the populace seems, also, targeted at controlling the people's
initiative and foresight.
- Someone in government, it appears, doesn't want the people
to think for themselves about what they see going on around them.
- As reliable as the provability of tenuousness in the
debunkers, "arguments" - and the eminent apparent danger in chemtrailing
- is the debunkers, coming up with yet other attempts, at discrediting
those who oppose chemtrails.
- They couldn't deny the existence of days when huge numbers
of chemtrails clutter the skies, because innumerable photographs to the
contrary exist. If that wasn't the case, there is little doubt they would
try to utterly and baldly deny their existence, altogether. Initially,
though, they did, apparently, try the wheeze that "aircraft exhaust
can,t alter the environment"! That has since been overturned by a
number of studies indicating that, at the very least, the obscuring effect
of normal contrails was enough to lower the earth's temperature by at least
- Equally as determinedly posited was the assertion that,
even if long, environmentally-altering trails were being laid, it wasn't
deliberate. Countering that is the revelation that numerous patents and
proposals for using aircraft to affect weather have been filed, in the
past few years alone! "Cloud seeding" is the least of the methods;
preventing global warming was a major goal of many. Recently, too, even
the military published a proposal to the effect of using weather control
in wartime as a "force multiplier" against enemy troops. They
termed their proposal "Owning the Weather by 2025"
- In the face of these demonstrations of their evidently
patent falsehood in opposing chemtrail followers, debunkers have taken
up the line that, even though jet exhaust can affect the environment, and
even though there are plans to utilize that to control the weather, jets
never release anything other than normal exhaust into the air. In the recent
past, however, CNN aired a report of military planes, among other things,
releasing egg whites into the air to test radar methods for, putatively,
tracking drug planes! It is questionable what aspect of the situation the
debunkers will attempt to attack next.
- And the debunkers have shown every determination to oppose
suspicion about and examination of chemtrails as much as would be necessary
to end questioning about them! They have taken out whole websites devoted
to opposing chemtrail suspicions; they have even launched mirror sites
of websites, to provide as much a saturation of the internet with their
evident propaganda as possible! They run the gamut from an individual that
calls themself "ChickieDeb", and identifies themself as "a
housewife from Indiana" - ChickieDeb being one of those who launched
three websites devoted to debunking - to an organization given the frankly
questionable name "New Mexicans for Science and Reason - suggesting
they see "science" and "reason" to be two totally separate
and unrelated things.
- Jay Reynolds, who seems proud to oppose the assertion
that chemtrails are not normal contrails, and who also sponsored three
separate sites to mirror his assertions, likewise states, on his website:
"the real state of things that agrees with facts and reality."
Meaning, presumably, that, for Mr. Reynolds, "facts" and "reality"
are two totally separate and unrelated things. Before struggling to oppose
investigation into chemtrails, the debunkers, it appears, should attempt
developing a pose that doesn't come across as that of an incompetent poseur.
- The nature of the debunkers, refutations, however, is
consistent with the stock in trade of those without a leg to stand on.
Pre-eminent among their "tools" is out-and-out derision. Jay
Reynolds titles his mirror sites "Contrails or Trails-CON?" One
of the devotees of chemtrail examination, William Thomas, he terms a "snakeoil
- On ChickieDeb's site, cdebsjournal.topcities.com/Rhaltitude.htm,
she quotes Jay Reynolds as characterizing those who mobilize the movement
to study chemtrails as "X-file wackos", and ChickieDeb openly
agrees. Larry Lawson, whom ChickieDeb identifies as a "chemtrail perpetrator",
is also referred to, by her, as a "pipsqueak".
- On the same page, incidentally, ChickieDeb condemns "religious
fundamentalists", like she models Mr. Lawson to be, who "think
that God is unable to take care of things by Himself". ChickieDeb
seems of the opinion that people should just sit still and do nothing,
leave it all to God - or whatever she tries to pass off as a deity - to
do things in the world. She seems intent on coercing others into a willing
complacence and disinterest in taking action in the world. The title of
another of her websites devoted, apparently, to deceiving people about
the reality of chemtrails is "DO YOU WANT TO STOP BEING AFRAID?"
- Apparently she couldn,t be happier if everyone agreed
not to be concerned about what is being done to their environment, and
just let their rights and interests be run roughshod over! Even an atheist
would accept that God would not have created man just to sit and watch
the world; a purpose for creating man was so that man could do things and
not leave it to God to "take care of things by Himself". Having
people stand up for themselves, however, seems anathema to what ChickieDeb
has in mind for them.
- The debunkers seem never at a loss for disparaging names
to call those who seem to threaten the government secret they work so hard
to hide, or a boundless store of contempt for others.
- The evident attempt to vilify suspicion of chemtrails
is also a commonplace on debunkers, websites. ChickieDeb titles at least
one of her mirror sites, worldzone.net/international.checkiedeb, "CHEMTRAIL
HOAX - The Best Kept Secret In the World". On that site, ChickieDeb
gives space to an article by Jay Reynolds, entitled "HOW TO RUN A
CHEMTRAIL SCARE FOR FUN AND PROFIT". On one of the pages on one of
ChickieDeb,s mirror sites, www.worldzone.net/international/chickiedeb/cgi/col2.shtml,
chemtrail opponents are belittled for accusing debunkers of not using logic,
yet it is said, of them, that "they refuse to recognize logic and
- "Rationale", it could be mentioned, for ChickieDeb's
information, means the "excuse" or "justification"
one uses to "explain" their actions. It is not an accompanying
quality with logic. What ChickieDeb seems to have wanted to mention - yet
apparently did not have the depth of education to supply - was "rationality".
- On the page, worldzone.net/international/chickiedeb//cgi/eyeswideshut.shtml,
ChickieDeb acknowledges that a term the debunkers use for chemtrail opponents
is "Insane Cloud Posse".
- Contempt is a large part of the debunkers, stock in trade.
- When not engaging in determined vituperation of chemtrail
opponents, the debunkers attempt a "validation" of their condemnation
of chemtrail concerns, usually through patently indulgence in fraudulent
double-talk and specious "demonstrations".
- The endless, arch and professorial expositions on "temperature,
humidity and pressure" is only one aspect of this tack. Even there,
though, the debunkers find it difficult to work within the bounds of their
own presentations. On www.weatherwise.org/qr/qry.chemtrail.html, Thomas
Schlatter, who passes himself off as a "NOAA meteorologist",
contends that long lasting contrails can occur if the temperature is less
than 70º and the relative humidity of air, compared to ice is greater
than 100%, that is, there is more than enough water vapor to replace ice
as ice dissolves in the sunlight. The apparent purpose of this seems to
be just to give the impression that long lasting contrails are possible.
- But it soon became evident that this was also describing
an eminently unlikely - if not patently impossible - situation.
- To, apparently, patch up this problem, ChickieDeb, on
the web page, cdebsjournal.topcities.com/leadpage.htm, apparently desperately
and recklessly blurts that "contrails can occur with zero humidity
if the temperature is cold enough". Leaving aside the fact that she
conveniently says only that "contrails" - not long-lasting contrails
- can occur under those conditions - which no one denies - on the web page
the link she provides leads to, someone named Dr. Patrick Minnis asserts
only that meteorological instruments reading humidity at high altitudes
have been, supposedly, consistently wrong, so that, presumably, high altitude
humidities are larger than expected.
- Importantly, on the page, it also refers only to "contrails"
forming, not long-lasting contrails. In what seems to constitute little
more than what is termed "hand-waving", Dr. Minnis then goes
on to state, without explanation or justification, that relative humidities
have to be greater than 100% for "contrails to persist for very long",
but, "at those cold temperatures, a small error in moisture measurement"
can lead to "a large error" in the relative humidity. Supposedly,
then, not only are relative humidities at high altitudes greater than previously
thought, they, putatively, are even greater than they appear, because readings
might have a small error that can translate into a massive difference in
the actual humidity.
- The "margin of error" the debunkers seem to
want to lend to reality, to back their contentions, appears even larger
and more encompassing that the actual situation.
- Characteristic of other forms that the pedagogic patronizing
of the debunkers can take is in the typically flippantly entitled entry
"fun With Math", on web page www.chemtrailcentral.com/ubb/Forum9/HTML/000033.html.
- There, a "correspondent", who takes the name
BEE, puts up the pose of "proving" that "there is simply
no way physically for anything sprayed at the height at which contrails
(or supposed chemtrails) are observed to reach any kind of concentration
on the ground which would have any effect on people whatsoever".
- He begins by considering a "worst case scenario"
of a jet hovering overhead, at various heights, dumping different amounts
of material, with wind going at various speeds. Among other things, though,
he assumes a "source rate" for the spraying of "63 billion
micrograms/second". This works out to 63,000 grams/second, or 140
lbs./second. That's almost 8 tons per minute! If BEE is willing to be
so unreliable in even this early part of the "explanation", there
is no reason to trust him in what he says later.
- His conclusions are no less questionable. Proceeding
from a supposed height, for the jet, of from 2 to 2000 meters above the
ground, he reels off supposed "maximum concentrations" for the
sprayed substance. He goes from 19.3 billion micrograms/cubic meter to
.75 micrograms/cubic meter. The highest value is related to a situation
for the plane 2 meters in the air, the lowest value, for one 2000 meters
high. He evidently wants to "dramatically demonstrate" that the
results from a "realistic" situation are very, very low.
- An eminent problem with that, however, is that, not only
does BEE look at varying heights for the jet, for each jet, there is also
a different distance downwind looked at. The jet 2 meters in the air has
a "maximum concentration" 60 meters downwind quoted, a jet 100
meters high has a value at 15,000 meter downwind given, and for the jet
at 2000 meters, the concentration at 3.5 billion meters, or 2.2 million
miles, downwind! It is unlikely, if not completely impossible, that material
would drift for 2.2 million miles over the earth, before coming to rest.
- What is more, for all the insistence, by BEE, that winds
would dissipate chemtrail material, that has never been observed! They
spread and combine with other chemtrails, but they have never been seen
to be blown away by winds! In fact, it is their tendency to stay in one
place, unchanged, except for spreading, for hours on end, which was one
thing which brought them to the public,s attention.
- If the purpose of the chemtrails was to stay in one place
and, at least, physically affect the environment, such as causing a drought,
or even form clouds and then let rainwater wash it down to the soil, contaminating
people that way, then they are, apparently, doing exactly what was desired
- How easy it is for the chemtrail defenders - they shape
up as little more than that! - to "exonerate" chemtrails of things
no one said they were doing.
- For that matter, too, all the supposedly legitimate physical
calculations BEE presumably performed does not prove that there aren't
substances which can affect, or even harm, people at concentrations of
only about 1 microgram/cubic meter! Allergens work at very small concentrations,
pathogens can be dangerous at those low levels, and various poisonous gases
can be potent at even lower concentrations! Withholding important information
can be as crucial as misrepresenting information, in promoting a fraudulent
proposal! Add the fact that, on a day of regular chemtrailing, as many
as 30 or more trails can be left in any affected area of sky, and there
is a likelihood that huge amounts of dangerous material will be released.
- And where displays of contempt and presumed exercises
in sophistry do not succeed, the debunkers appear to rely on out and out
fraud! A favored technique, for example, is saying that chemtrails are
nothing more than normal contrails, then going through elaborate proofs
that contrails are not unusual or dangerous and, because contrails are
not unusual or dangerous - which, in truth, has not been proved! - then,
what chemtrail observers complain about can,t be unusual or dangerous!
Just about every chemtrail debunker site has at least one page devoted
to "examining" and "explaining" contrails, then diffidently
insisting that that,s all that chemtrails are - using even less proof than
the chemtrail opposers use for their statements! - and "concluding"
that, therefore, chemtrails do not exist, and chemtrail opposers are just
- The facts of chemtrails, however, do not bear out debunkers,
- Among other things, the references to chemtrails began
only around 1997. There are no references to unusual, persistent cloud
trails before that date. Contrails didn't suddenly start to become long-lived
under certain circumstances only after 1997. And it unlikely that people
will have suddenly started to become aware of something as obvious, and
apparently pernicious, as vapor trails that persist for hours, then spread
and coalesce into sun blocking cloud decks only in 1997. The very fact
that no complaints of long, spreading contrails before 1997 is sufficient
to establish that chemtrails must be real, and not normal contrails.
- Tellingly, though, and apparently not coincidental at
all, is the fact that, in October 1997, the system of reporting visibility
date, from the National Climatic Data Center, was abruptly reduced from
the then standard maximum of 40 miles, to only 10 miles. To reduce visibility
information that way only endangers such things as aerial navigation! To
do so peremptorily, in that manner, was utterly incompatible with any consideration
of protecting the welfare of citizens.
- What it does seem geared for, however - what seems more
important than the interests of the public! - is keeping the government
from having to acknowledge that there was something out there that long
range data would need them to report! Something, too, that seems likely
to be nothing less than a hindrance to long-range visibility, as well.
- There was something out there that the government didn't
want the people to know about.
- But the indications that chemtrails are real go beyond
- Debunkers, for example, could try to "argue"
that, on days when chemtrails don,t appear, it,s because the weather conditions
at the planes, height don,t permit them. The planes are there, they would
demand, but the peculiar conditions that turned innocent contrails into
extended lines in the sky simply weren't present. But, even at the height
at which chemtrails are apparently laid, planes can be seen and heard slightly.
Because they take a long time passing through the sky, that high up, they
form a low rumble that can persist for many minutes.
- On the days when chemtrails do not appear, neither the
bright specks that the planes appear as, nor the low rumble are heard.
More than that, not even normal contrails - which should form under just
about any condition! - are not present. When chemtrails do not form high
in the sky, it is because the planes that form them are not up there. The
forming of chemtrails, then, is related more to the presence of special
planes high up that particular day, and not, evidently, certain conditions
affecting planes that are, putatively, present every day.
- A phenomenon that chemtrail followers also point to to
indicate the suspicious nature of the trails is what is termed the "on
and off switch". Often, when chemtrails appear overhead, there will
be a space in the trail, where what seems to be aerial spraying was turned
off, for a time, then turned back on.
- This does not happen, ever, for conventional contrails.
Planes forming the short tails of contrail fog behind them do not go through
periods when the cloud will disappear; the clouds themselves, even though
they last for a short time, do not show spaces in them. Debunkers, unsurprisingly,
dismiss these claims, insisting that there is nothing in the breaks in
chemtrails that indicate anything out of what they term the usual.
- Tellingly, though, actual addresses of the issue of the
"on off switch" are rare on debunker websites. In fact, only
one site, www22.brinkster.com/Seawana/Conspiracies/Chemtrails.asp, which
boasts the title, "The Way of the Dodo", actually devotes any
real space to an attempted "explanation" of chemtrail breaks.
- In characteristically contemptuous and insulting fashion,
the section begins, "Ah yes. These rare photos are a favorite among
the believers." The originator of the site, who identifies himself
as Skip Ernst, describes "the neanderthals running" spray operations
as having "mistakenly turned off the spray for a few moments".
- "Can you believe the government has hired a bunch
of bumbling idiots to perform their top secrets operations?", Mr.
Ernst adds, mockingly.
- He posits that the breaks are caused by jets having "simply
passed through a pocket of air where contrails" - carefully, he doesn,t
refer to them as "chemtrails"! - "will not form. The air
could be too warm or too dry to form the ice crystals which make a contrail
- It is eminently unlikely, if not patently impossible,
that air that high up would be so warm, to begin with. The jets that form
chemtrails typically fly at at least three miles high. Even if it was too
warm, a trail, of sorts, of water vapor would be likely, following the
jet. And, even if the air were very dry, a trace of the ice crystals from
the jet engines, that supposedly form the "seed" for the chemtrail,
should be visible, and it is not.
- And that is leaving aside, entirely, the fact that there
is little reason to believe that an isolated, tiny, patch of air could
be so radically different from the overwhelming mass of air around it!
If an area of warm or dry air were to intrude, it is likely that it would
be no time before the rest of the air around it would bring it into equilibrium.
- More than that, though, Mr. Ernst, will have to explain
how it is possible for chemtrails with breaks, supposedly caused by differing
air masses, to occur in close proximity to chemtrails with no breaks!
- "I'll leave it at that and let you be the judge",
he concludes archly.
- If he's telling the absolute, incontrovertible truth,
which he pretends to be, then he would be able to call it that! He wouldn't
have to leave it to the reader to "be the judge".
- That, in itself, all but brands the material on the Seawana
site utterly untrustworthy.
- Mr. Ernst also takes issue with, among other things,
the observation that "most chemtrails seem to be created at altitudes
above commercial flights", which can be taken to be an indication
that chemtrails are not normal contrails, but the result of government
- "That is because the probability of a contrail being
produced at a higher altitude is much greater", he retorts.
- "Next please", he adds, smugly, evidently content
that he has put any question of the formation of chemtrails to rest, firmly.
- But, if the chemtrails are being produced at altitudes
higher than commercial jets use, as he, himself, seems willing to accede,
what is leaving them? It is apparent, then, that it is only government
planes laying the trails, and that is far from something that discounts
the likelihood of their being a government operation'
- Moreover, how could Flight Explorer, which seems to record
only commercial flights, attest to the flight plans of those jets causing
- Among the site's other demonstrations of the "character"
of its developer, are a "boss button" - a switch which you click
so that, if you're looking at the site instead of doing work, at the office,
you can call up a realistic looking spreadsheet screen, to con your boss
into thinking you're not gold-bricking.
- "Surf freely with the security that comes from the
knowledge that your boss remains clueless about your daily internet practices!",
Mr. Ernst proclaims. Apparently, honesty and honor are alien concepts to
him. But, then, in the "encyclopedia" section of the site, he
proclaims he'll do just about anything for a bribe. Also in evidence are
Java language banners in which Mr. Ernst regularly vents his bile at any
of a number of common "pop-up" advertisements to be seen on many
- One such banner takes aim at "the f***ing X-Cam",
the miniature camera you can hook up to your computer to see what's happening
somewhere else. The site also includes a pretentious "encyclopedia"
of "conspiracy theories", and a "news" page, both riddled
with misspellings, and full references to those who follow those theories
as "dopes", "morons" and "idiots"; and a
page devoted to something called "Drunken Stumble" a game "that
allows you to get rip roaring drunk - but with a purpose."
- Mr. Ernst seems incapable of anything but viciousness,
disingenuousness and antipathy for everything that exists.
- Nor, indeed, is it only apparently "disinterested
individuals" who have attempted to quell investigation into chemtrails.
Branches of the government have taken it upon themselves to denounce the
consideration that chemtrails were anything but ordinary contrails, and
even gone so far as to officially term it a "hoax."
- The United States Air Force web page on the subject,
www.af.mil/environment/contrails_chemtrail.shtml, for example, is entitled
"The Chemtrail Hoax"
- While it may be a purview of individuals to term something
a "hoax" at will, a branch of the government is considered more
bound by the law in its actions, so that, for them to term something a
"hoax" is automatically to have it characterized according to
the legal definition of the term. More than that, it indicates that sufficient
examination has been carried out to back that characterization. Legally,
a "hoax" is far more than just some kind of prank, gag or practical
joke; it is a willful and malicious act of mayhem, usually for the aggrandizement
of the "perpetrator".
- By titling their page that way, the Air Force, then,
officially accuses all the honest, straightforward citizens genuinely concerned
about at least the affront of their skies being clouded over, and sunlight
all but banished from their lives, as malingerers and frauds.
- A common tactic of the guilty is to cast the first stone
and blame the innocent, at least to try to buy enough time to shore up
their defenses against justice.
- As with all other "debunkers", the Air Force
proceeds to declare that contrails can be caused to remain for very long
periods, based on temperature and humidity. Like the other debunkers, they
never once assert that the conditions that would allow contrails to persist
- if at all - are conditions that are likely to, or even possibly can,
occur on the earth, at the present! Unlike the other "debunkers",
the Air Force, on their site, don,t include barometric pressure in the
"explanation", an eminently glaring omission, utterly calling
everything they say into question! Also unlike the other "debunkers",
the Air Force does claim that "winds" can affect the persistence
- Too, and indicative of the fact that they may engage
in the eminently questionable act of taking it on themselves to term suspicion
of chemtrails a "hoax", but they are still bound by considerations
of justice and fairness, the Air Force, on their site, declare that contrails
can be caused to last long periods of time because of "aircraft exhaust
