Yeah, call me crazy but there is just no way all of that air traffic isn't doing ..something.
I remember reading an article a while back about environmental pollutants, what shocked me was the prevalence of trace amounts of jet fuel in everything, even breast milk. Now I can wee why.
After the air strikes of 9/11, all aircraft were required to land at the nearest airport. This gave meteorologists the one chance to see what effect all those contrails had on global weather patterns. All the light reflected from those contrails, disruptions to cloud patterns, amounted to 1.5% of the total amount received from the Sun. That was enough to cool down the climate by a corresponding amount.

Posting classified information can get you and ATS in trouble. But be my guest and see how much trouble it causes you.
Thanks for this, it is pretty useful.
