Chemtrails Over the Skies at Earthday?
Yesterday I get on my bike and cruise over to a friends house on the way to Earth Day. I get off my bike and look up at the sky and immediately am astounded by the enormity of these white lines being drawn in the sky by jets. My friend comes out and I point up and say one word "chemtrails". She says "I know they have been doing it all morning".
Being that this friend is the person who educated me about chemtrails a few years ago saying they were rampant in Portland Oregon where she lived, I knew that she would be aware of the peculiarness of the scene.
Like most people I had never really paid much attention to the skies or the difference between a contrail and a chemtrail. I learned that a contrail is essentially just a vapor trail left by a jet that disappears within a few minutes.
A chemtrail, on the other hand, initially looks like a contrail but lasts for hours and rather than disappear it spreads out and creates a white haze. The jets that create chemtrails fly at extremely high altitudes and are virtually impossible to identify (ie as commercial or whatever) making it difficult to track down where it is coming from. Many have speculated that chemtrails are being done to combat global warming and for weather modification.
A number of patents are out there that provide the technology to synthetically manufacture chem-clouds to effectively block the sun. One patent obtained by National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) US3813875 uses barium to create ion clouds in the upper atmosphere. In 1991, Hughes Aircraft (they are right here in SD) obtained patent US5003186, to seed greenhouse gas layers with tiny particles which include "oxides of metal , e.g., aluminum oxide."
That's right...combating global warming with aluminum oxide. Sounds great right?.....except the part where we are getting doused by aluminum oxide. Do these engineers get that it eventually comes down from the sky?
Many countries like China and Russia readily admit to spraying chemicals in the sky to make it rain. Read this story in USA Today http://www.usatoday.com/news/world/2006-06-29-china-rain_x.htm
"China has the largest rainmaking (operation) in the world," ahead of Russia and Israel, says professor Wang Guanghe, a 20-year rainmaking veteran at China's Meteorological Sciences Academy.... Weather manipulation is an enthusiastic past-time for Beijing, possibly because so many of the country's Communist leaders are engineers. ...The forecast calls for more rain. China's five-year plan urges an increase in man-made precipitation.
China began cloud-busting in 1958. Now "it is increasing every year," says Wang, who cites the drought plaguing northern China as the main reason to fire rain-inducing shells or soar into the skies in cloud-seeding airplanes."
This is why it is interesting to me that the idea of chemtrails in the US would even fall under the category of "conspiracy". The technology has existed for quite some time and has been used and is being used in other countries. In a communist country open weather modification is easy but here in our pseudo-democracy this sort of proposal would face enormous public outcry from anyone exposed to the chemicals. To me it just seems like par for the course. All the big corporations know if you want to get something done you have to circumvent public knowledge.
Even the Obama administration just announced on April 10th that they are open to the possibility of “geo-engineering” the earth’s climate to counter global warming by “shooting pollution particles into the upper atmosphere to reflect the sun’s rays.”
So even if it is not happening now, it sounds like the government is opening the door to this pandora's box of weather modification using some questionable chemicals.
When people concerned about chemtrails had the particulate matter tested in the Lousiana news story they found that it contained large amounts of barium and aluminum and was making people sick. There are several local news stations across the country that have covered the story and have tested the contents. And local news is typically the last media to propagate any kind of conspiracy. Check out this news story in Louisiana.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rFpF-c...
And what is a "conspiracy" really? Isn't it just 2 or more people that got together and agreed to help each other do something that benefited themselves at the expense of others. Isn't that exactly what happened with the banks, the big corporations, Madoff, the government? Isn't it the rule and not the exception? So people can throw the "conspiracy" word around if they want, but it just seems very 2002 to me. Aren't we passed that now?
And aren't we passed that whole thing of accepting the line "we (the government) are doing things for your own good (like fighting global warming or making it rain) that you don't need to know about"---Remember Cheney telling us the War would be "fought in the shadows". I mean that whole mindset ended when Dick Cheney was wheeled out of the White House in his wheelchair.
Alot is unclear, but what is clear is that these lines are man-made and they contain "something" and we deserve to know exactly what it is. If its legit then tell us. Explain it to us. Because as of yet, not a single scientist has come forward to explain to us what these trails are. They just say "I don't know. I cant explain it" and then they try and connect it to a contrail but they cannot explain why they do not disappear.
Tell us what this is, who is doing it and why.
Here's a good Discovery Channel investigation... http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x1a4bt_chemtrails-exposed-on-discovery-cha_shortfilms
