I didn't say it was used in nefarious ways. I said they were hiding the dangers of it. I brought it up because it is a sprayed chemical.

From You, "So what exactly is it that doesn't make them persistent contrails?"
If I understand this right, a ConTrail forms when Hot exhaust meets the cold air, throw in some humidity and if the mix is right, a Contrail Forms, Correct?
If that is true, Than a real ConTrail dissipates after a few moments of it's 'birth'. That's why You see a REAL CONTRAIL FADE AWAY while the jet flies along, as the HEAT from the engine IS LOST TO THE COLD AIR.
So DO You mean to tell Me that he HEAT from a Jet engine to form that 'cloud' STAYS THERE ALL DAY LONG and GOES ALL THE WAY ACROSS THE SKY?!?
C'Mon Man THAT is ABSOLUTELY INSANE!!! You can try to fill Me with all Your Schpeel all day and I am staying right where I am, with My beliefs.
So Right now I am agreeing that We disagree. Have a Good Day. Syx. Late.

Maybe someone smarter than me could explain what all of this means. I've read through it a few times and get the general idea but I don't have a clue how to prove or disprove the info right now. I do notice that the radar time is nowhere close to the weather data time on some and only a few hours off on others. I have no idea how to interpret the Surface Weather Observation data without spending time figuring it out. So, is the premise correct? That "Operational Doppler Weather Radar CAN NOT DETECT CIRRUS CLOUDS let alone aircraft contrails." ? It seems logical otherwise all of the weather radar systems would be showing every persistent contrail on their screens. So what are those red lines?
I'm really enjoying this thread but it's a challenge for me to keep up. It seems the universe has it's own ideas about how I should be spending my "free" time this week(in other words I have very little).
