In British Columbia, numerous Morgellons sufferers believe that mysterious fibers and microscopic slivers removed from their bodies are nanotech devices, sprayed onto the unwitting populace by jets.
David Icke sees trails of gum-like residue littering the Isle of Wight and concludes that jets are spewing a toxic substance specially designed to kill us.
The feature-length 2011 documentary What in the World Are They Spraying? hints that a massive-but-covert geoengineering experiment is underway, possibly without the knowledge or consent of our elected leaders. In one portion of the film, actress Mariel Hemingway laments that someone is trying to wipe out organic agriculture by blocking the sun’s rays.
At the website Universe Creator, someone insists that jets are spraying an airborne Ebola virus. Bizarrely, he/she identifies Ebola as a genetically engineered herpes virus.
In Alberta, a member of We Are Change Calgary frets that ELF waves from the HAARP array in Alaska, combined with metal oxides sprayed from jets, are going to alter her body chemistry and control her mind. Another member rushes her child to hospital each time there is “heavy spraying” in her area.
Tom Bearden, a retired Army lieutenant colonel, tells lecture audiences that scalar weaponry, derived from scalar field theory, has been in use for over three decades. Some proponents of his theories say the materials in jet contrails facilitate vast scalar defense systems that are invisible to the public.
On Facebook and other social networks, people post photos of unusual jet contrails and cloud formations, complaining that their friends and family members can’t see what they see in the skies.
August, 2007: At a 9/11 Truth conference in Vancouver, Alfred Webre tells attendees there was heavy jet activity over the city in the week preceding 9/11. “Our conjecture,” he says, is that the spraying was intended to dampen the “civic enthusiasm” of residents.
When the author later points out on this blog that aerial spraying is a highly inefficient means for the dispersal of psychoactive substances over a target population, he denounces me as “an accessory after the fact to war crimes.”
Today, Webre is trying to ring the alarm on teenage Obama’s secret teleportation to Mars.
These are simply a few examples of the fear, confusion, and weirdness that surround the subject of “chemtrails”, also known as jet condensation trails (contrails) or vapour trails. Though contrails have been in our skies for as long as high-altitude jet travel has existed, many observers insist they look different now; they last longer, dissipate more slowly, and are more numerous than ever. They point to crosshatched contrails and filmy cloud cover as evidence that jets are spraying some unknown substance into the air, for reasons unknown.
Not that there aren’t theories, as you can see from the examples above. Ideas about what chemtrails might be range from the mundane (military chaff, cloud brightening agents) to the super-fantastical (Tesla-inspired technology capable of repelling UFOs, vectors for nanobots, depopulation method). The chemtrail theories have spawned many local TV news stories, an episode of the Discovery Channel program Best Evidence, a Beck song, chemtrail conferences in at least two countries, the aforementioned documentary, and hundreds of websites. A Google search for “chemtrails” typically returns over 2,000,000 results, while a search for “contrails” gives you just 1,880,000.
In this series, we’re going to examine:
- The history of chemtrail sightings
- Jets: A brief overview of the history of jet travel and contrails, how jets are designed, what goes into jet fuel
- Weather modification, past and present
- Military operations (real and fictional) that involved aerial spraying
- The various theories of what chemtrails contain, why they are being sprayed, and who is spraying them, as well as some of the methods being employed to “combat” chemtrails
- The metals most commonly believed to be in chemtrails (aluminum, barium, strontium, titanium, etc.) and their effects
- What in the World Are They Spraying?, and videos that appear to show chemtrail-related phenomena
- Chemtrail whistleblowers, people who claim to have been part of secret spraying operations.
We’ll also hear what a professional pilot with 46 years’ flight experience has to say about chemtrails.
Most importantly, we will attempt to answer questions about the potential hazards of contrails. Do they pose a threat to human health and the environment? Are we, as the folksinger below contends, being murdered from the sky?
Following the Chemtrails I: Jets
Lots of chemtrail-watchers mistake ordinary jet components for chemtrail-spraying equipment. Don’t be one of those people.
Following the Chemtrails II: Contrails and Clouds
“Contrails can’t make clouds!”, and other myths
Following the Chemtrails III: Aerial Spraying Operations (part one) – Military Chaff
Is chaff responsible for chemtrails? What about all that aluminum?
Following the Chemtrails III.5: Other Aerial Spraying Operations
A close look at other military and civilian operations that involve aerial spraying. Could any of these things account for chemtrails?
Some of you might feel I’m dumbing this down too much at times, but please keep in mind that we’re living on the same planet as reality TV stars and the rainbow sprinkler conspiracy lady; I can’t even take it for granted that people understand why rainbows form.
