Ever noticed how airplanes leave trails in the sky behind them?
Are those contrails (condensation trails)? Or something more sinister. Like chemicals.
Can governments really have secret projects aimed at spraying the general population for nefarious agendas?
Some people believe so. Which is why today we’re going to look into the Chemtrail Conspiracy and look into the allegation that governments are spraying us with chemicals via airplanes.
What is the Chemtrail Conspiracy?
“The chemtrail conspiracy theory is the unproven belief that long-lasting trails, so-called “chemtrails”, are left in the sky by high-flying aircraft and that they consist of chemical or biological agents deliberately sprayed for sinister purposes undisclosed to the general public.”
Why people believe in the conspiracy
One highly marginalized but vocal sector of the population believes chemtrails are being sprayed on us like Raid on cockroaches by our invisible overlords to facilitate a depopulation agenda.
On the other extreme are academics unashamedly publishing papers suggesting we should play God by using various geoengineering techniques with avowedly planet wide impacts to “combat global warming.”
Rarely, however, do we see anyone convincingly tying together the first-hand observational data with objective data, to prove that there is something in these persistent contrails other than frozen water vapor.
A study was recently published that did exactly this, bringing us closer to the truth than we have ever been before. The implications are simply profound and I believe may foment greatly expanded awareness and activism on the topic.
The new study published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health titled, “Evidence of Coal-Fly-Ash Toxic Chemical Geoengineering in the Troposphere: Consequences for Public Health,” offers a convincing explanation for what is behind the so-called “chemtrail” phenomenon, revealing that the source material used to create artificial weather visible throughout the world is the extremely toxic waste material from the electric industry known as coal fly ash.
If you are not already aware, “chemtrail” is a colloquial term used to describe the persistent contrails, presumably laden with “chemicals,” observed issuing from aircraft that result in the formation of artificial cloud patterns and weather. Their existence has been almost universally written off as “conspiracy theory” by the media and government despite global evidence – as clear as day – that the weather is being manipulated with aerosols, presumably for geoengineering purposes intended to offset global warming.
Whistleblower claims that Chemtrail Conspiracy is real
Last year an ex U.S Air Force “whistle blower” came forward with claims that the Chemtrail Conspiracy is real. But her interview leaves a lot of things unclear and she is barely very believable.
Chemtrail Conspiracy Debunked?
This difference between trails that fade away, and trails that spread, is often used as evidence of the “chemtrail” theory, which states that the longer lasting trails (or some of them) are being deliberately manipulated for some reason. So you see helpful images like this.
But this is wrong. Contrails can fade away, and contrails can persist and spread. It depends on the air they are formed in.
Now there are two main reasons why some planes leave trails and some nearby planes do not. The less common reason, is that different planes have different engines. Some engines will leave a contrail in air where another engine will not.
You can also get a similar effect with engines at different power settings, especially if it affects the exhaust temperature. This can occasionally be seen with high altitude refueling, when the plane being refueled cuts the throttle to near idle in order to separate from the tanker.
But here’s the main reason why you see trails on some planes but not on others, and I’ll emphasize it, because although it’s simple, it’s also easy to miss.
The planes are at different altitudes.
Yes, it’s really that simple. The reason that one plane makes contrails, or makes contrails that persist, and the other plane does not, is that they are in different regions of air. For simplicity, let’s refer to these regions of air as wet air and dry air, although the differences are a bit more complex.
When the plane is in wet air, it makes a contrail. In dry air it does not.
Study against Chemtrail Conspiracy
Scientists from the University of California, Irvine, and the Carnegie Institute got together and researched the topic.
They knew they wouldn’t convince the conspiracy theorists, but having a solid source of objective science might help inform the public discourse.
They surveyed hundreds of experts in contrails as well as those who study atmospheric deposition (how various chemicals fall to the ground from the air), presenting them with the evidence provided on various chemtrail websites (mostly in the form of photos of plane trails and analyses of water and soil samples), asking them to evaluate it.
In the end, 77 scientists reported back, and the results were not terribly surprising. 98.7 per cent (76 out of 77) of the scientists said they had encountered no evidence of a secret large-scale atmospheric programme (SLAP). Everything they saw on the conspiracy websites showed that what they were seeing was the natural consequence of planes flying around all on their own without government nefariousness.
That’s pretty much it for now folks. It seems like while the concept of Chemtrail Conspiracy is very alluring, there seems to be no real evidence of government’s alleged nefarious plans.
And there’s a much simpler and scientifically feasible explanation for the white lines in the sky. They are simply ice crystal formed when jet fuel burns in a cold wet atmosphere.
Top Comment: King-Hell via Reddit
“Both the US and British governments have sprayed their populations multiple times over the past 50 years, using a variety of chemicals, pathogens, and delivery techniques. They are probably still doing it. But none of the previous experiments we now know about called for spraying 200-mile long plumes of white chemicals across clear blue skies. There’s no evidence to suggest this is what they are doing now. Spraying anything into the upper atmosphere is a very expensive and imprecise way of delivering a substance to the population. The winds blow at 240 mph up there so where this ‘spray’ comes down is anybody’s guess.”
Verdict: While the idea of our government wanting to contain the population with this method, or control the weather, or achieve other goals, does not seem too far fetched. There seems to be a lack of any real evidence of such activities. But then again, finding such evidence requires long-term investigation and proper testing, a task not so easily undertaken.
