GE and other such proposals are genuinely out there and could present a real threat but the "chemtrail" crowd are too busy looking the wrong way to ever do anything remotely useful.
Science Project: Contrail Studies Intersecting contrails over Texas.

Web Id: P4
Purpose: Serious students, citizen scientists and regular weather watchers can use a camera and simple weather instruments to monitor and study contrails and to determine their possible environmental effects.
Age Range: 11 to adult
Time Required: Contrails can be observed, photographed and reported in only a few minutes a day. Scientific studies of contrails take more time and can provide important scientific information.
Contrails can spread into cirrus clouds that reduce sunlight during the day, thus causing a cooling effect. But contrails also trap heat during both the day and the night. It is not yet certain if the net result of these effects warms or cools the Earth, but most studies indicate that contrails have a net warming effect on our planet.
Scientists at NASA’s Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia found that the increase in temperature over the United States from 1975 to 1994 closely matched the increase expected from the presence of contrails. Dr. Patrick Minnis is a senior research scientist at the Langley Research Center. He has measured a one percent per decade increase in cirrus cloud cover over the United States, which is likely due to contrails. Minnis estimates that cirrus clouds from contrails increased the temperatures of the lower atmosphere by anywhere from 0.36 to 0.54 degrees F per decade. Minnis’s results show good agreement with weather service data, which reveal that the temperature of the surface and lower atmosphere rose by almost 0.5 degrees F per decade between 1975 and 1994.

Network dude, there's a difference between a petty back and forth and a discussion.
Wow, you've really got me cornered.
Hopefully one day, we can all be as caught up on these topics as yourself. We won't need to attend lectures on topics we're unsure of and should just read a couple posts on websites like this to provide our paradigm. Researchers usually require compensation for lectures/presentations. Venues, flights, hotels, etc. come at a price.
Just like you having the freedom to choose what you want to believe, people have the freedom to choose to attend or not.
It's funny watching people respond and react like this. Perhaps you should all step out from behind your computers and take the lead on how to educate others.
I don't know everything about these topics. I'm learning. How do you suggest I continue my search for truth?
LOL. Always easy for those who do nothing but complain to complain.

The chemtrails (containing metals like aluminum) enhance the conductivity of the atmosphere making the ionizers like HAARP more effective. You don't have to believe it, but that's the theory. Listen to the woman's story. She doesn't sound like some kook to me.
