Personally, I'm not concerned about 'chemtrails' the way they are portayed by most chemtrail believers, WITWATS, tanker enemy, Max Bliss, Dane
Wigington, and all these other chemtrail pushers.
The reason is that the whole 'theory' is built on a number of fallacies. Stupid fallacies, because anyone can find out within a couple of minutes that
the whole thing is a farce.
A couple of examples are:
1: Contrails can't persist. This probably one of the easiest ones to debunk. You can try some experiments for yourself that put this nonsense to bed
here's one experiment that shows you the basic priciples of what a contrail is:
Here's a guy demonstrating how his breath turns into 'persisting contrails' on ground level, but in similar circumstances to what you'd find at a
jet's cruise altitude:
Now do a little research and find out what a cirrus cloud is. Then look at some of the physics of a jet engine running at 30.000 feet, learn some of
the meteorology involved at those altitudes, and you'll soon find that in the right conditions, a jet engine will indeed create persisting
They're in fact the same thing as cirrus clouds, which also happen at the same altitudes and in similar conditions. In fact whenever you see contrails
persist, you'll often see them being accompanied by cirrus clouds, which is a clear indication that at least at that altitude conditions are right for
contrails to persist.
2: Contrails never persisted before (insert year). "i never saw htem like that when i was younger'.
This is another common theme among chemtrail believers, and a cause for them to be concerned.
But a quick search will quickly show you that contrails did indeed persist for as long planes can fly high enough to create them. And yes, piston
engines will create them too. There are numerous pictures of persisting contrails from the past, as well as descriptions in books on clouds and
encyclopedias, as wel as a whole bunch of pictures from WW2.
Here's a nice collection: www.metabunk.org...
3: Tic tac toe patterns. It never ceases to amaze me how little chemtrail believers know about aviation. You'd think they'd learn everything about it
they can, if you want to pin down the 'chemtrails' to their exact nature. But no.. they simply soak up some garbage from youtube videos that tell them
that these patterns are signs of an ominous master plan.. or something without checking anything for themselves.
A quick glance at some of the pictures of air routes will tell you that there's an incredible amount of air routes going everywhere, and since they
don't all go in the same direction, they do often cross paths. This seems to be a big mystery to some chemtrail believers, but there it is..
Here's a picture giving some glimpse of how intricate the netword of air routes really is: openflights.org...
Now keep in mind that thousands upon thousands of jets fly along these routes every day, and there's the explanation for patterns in the sky, given
the right meteorological conditions.
So if there's anything i'm concerned with, it's the lack of willingness to research anything on the part of chedmtrail believers. They simply don't
know all this stuff, and moreover they don't WANT to learn about anything that might compromise their status of 'awakened one', which is what
chemtrail believers tell eachother they are. And of course everyone else are 'sheeple'.
I'm concerned by the cult like mentality that i've seen on display too many times for comfort. Just for fun go to one of the chemtrail stronghold
pages and post something mildly skeptical, and your post will be deleted and you'll be banned. It's creepy.
