"Everyone talks about the weather,
but nobody does anything about it."
Points to Ponder: Some definitions.
Over the Holmestead - January 2010.
The most difficult subjects can be explained to the most slow-witted man if he has not formed any idea of them already; but the simplest thing cannot be made clear to the most intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he knows already, without a shadow of doubt, what is laid before him.
Leon Tolstoy - 1897
"Chemtrails" - some definitions or at least some points to consider when making observations:
The word "chemtrail" is not yet in the Oxford English Dictionary and so various terms have come to be used to describe what is seen - such as "Anomalous Spreading Trail(s)" and what the Canadian government and others like to refer to as "Persistent Spreading Contrails" - that is without bothering to explain why today plain old-fashioned condensation trails should now behave in this new way!
Yes, I know contrails have been seen since the beginning of aviation but those were piston engines burning gasoline and, just like my truck on a cold morning, leaving a foggy trail behind.
The chemtrail theory is a group of theories regarding what are claimed to be unnatural condensation trails from high altitude jet aircraft. Contrails are formed by condensation of water vapor in the aircraft's exhausts whereas some trails, or plumes, have an appearance and quality different from those of normal water-based contrails - that is "chemtrails" are not consistent with the known atmospheric properties of contrails.
To make it quite clear - there is no claim being made that all contrails are chemtrails or "Persistent Spreading Contrails" if you prefer.
The term "chemtrail" should not be confused with other forms of acknowledged aerial spraying such as crop dusting, cloud seeding, military chaff dispersal or aerial firefighting. It specifically refers to systematic, high-altitude spraying by (usually...) military-type aircraft of unknown substances for some undisclosed purpose and, in particular, without the informed consent of the air breathing public.
As an aside to the issue of "informed consent": Following the recommendations of the Church Committee, President Gerald Ford in 1976 issued the first *Executive Order on Intelligence Activities* which, among other things, prohibited "experimentation with drugs on human subjects, except with the informed consent, in writing and witnessed by a disinterested party, of each such human subject" and in accordance with the guidelines issued by the National Commission. Subsequent orders by Presidents Carter and Reagan expanded the directive to apply to any human experimentation. Sources are to be found here: Google search.
Any one of these points listed below may be "debunked" by criminal paid agents who attempt to convince all and sundry that all such chemtrail activity is simply normal traditional condensation trails. Collectively seeing these aerial activities adds up in the mind and eye of the thinking observer - or witness. In other words the witness may be mistaken once or twice - but not every time! In fact an accurate, indisputable observation (perhaps with video and/or photographs) on just one occasion is really all that is required to make a case.
Eye-witness testimony is valid in a court of law so what is the difficulty in accepting it in regards to this illegal spraying?
So here are a few simple, direct points to look for or questions to ask of yourself if you see a plume in the sky - and this is in no way an all-inclusive definition list but is simply intended to assist in your own personal observations:
Are the aircraft in question on regular commercial flight paths or are operating in some restricted, such as military, air space? Check aeronautical charts for restricted area information.
Are the aircraft seen on a regular scheduled, perhaps daily, basis or very irregularly - random days and times?
Some areas of a country may have a great deal of air traffic - scheduled passenger, cargo and military etc. whereas other areas have very little but still in these areas of very sparse air traffic is the spraying still to be seen?
Are aircraft seen laying plumes interacting with other similar aircraft in a way that is obviously at odds with normal air traffic such as crossing flight paths and flying at apparently closer than normal spacing or intervals?
Are such plume-creating aircraft seen very frequently, perhaps in considerable numbers, for a period of days and then perhaps not at all for a while in a way that would not be typical of regularly scheduled commercial air traffic?
Is there by chance another aircraft in the sky at a similar high altitude that is apparently on a regular commercial flight path but is leaving behind a short, shall we say, traditional, condensation trail whereas the other aircraft is laying a trail that may stretch from horizon to horizon?
If it is possible to make it out with binoculars, for example, are any heavy plumes possibly emanating from areas of the aircraft other than directly behind the jet engine nacelles?
There have been reports such as this so it is worth asking - are you seeing plumes form at high altitude without being able to see a traditional aircraft at all?
A basic factor in regards to long plumes is that the persistent contrail may spread out over the sky and, under certain light conditions, may refract light showing some colors of the rainbow. Has that been seen?
Are the plumes laid throughout the sky so that in an hour or so your sky becomes overcast purely from the spreading plumes?
Does the laying of a plume by an aircraft break at times and then start again as if being switched on and off?
There is the question of atmospheric conditions suitable for the formation of traditional condensation trails - do such conditions exist at altitude?
If you are well-travelled do you sometimes visit parts of the World where these plumes are never encountered? What could be so special about the atmosphere in that particular country such that jet aircraft exhaust behaves so differently?
Have you by any chance attempted to bring your observations to the attention of the media and then - if there is any response at all - being told something along the lines of "that is a rather controversial subject..."? Well I have and at least that is an acknowledgment of sorts!
Of course, I could also ask if you have attempted to learn anything about this illegal spraying from politicians - our so-called "representatives" - but you would know that I am just joking...
