That's very interesting weedwacker, but it does not address the issue.
Look, I have a photograph of a jet leaving a trail as it ascends through several layers of atmoshere...ok, then, I also have photographs of jets
leaving trails on the same day within minutes of one another, some leave behind the spread out cloud-like trail, another the short, thin disappearing
trails. So far the explanation I have heard is it's variable temperature, variable moisture content of the air, variable altitude, etc...ok fine.
If these were the cause of the trails that spread out and linger, why are the trails consistant across the sky in width and concentration and not
patchy and inconsistant? You are saying the conditions for a lingering trail exist in a straight, unbroken line across the sky that just so happen to
follow a jet. Hm.
You can't use the argument that the atmosphere is full of varying conditions to explain why one trail dissipates and one doesn't, while using the
same argument to explain why the trails are consistant, unbroken lines that cross the sky. It doesn't add up my good friend.
Pilot, not sure how I didn't address the issue...
If you have a photo of a jet '...as it ascends through several layers of atmosphere...' and the resulting trail...and you KNOW that the jet was
'ascending' (actually, we use the term climbing...you're a pilot, based on your screen name, you should know that).
As i pointed out, depending on where you live, and what you observe during the day, you will see many jets pass overhead, and I guarantee they will be
at many different altitudes, and the air above you will be constantly changing...or not changing, in the case (rarely) when you see a contrail persist
for more than a few hours.
In any event, even IF...and that's a big IF...these were chemicals being sprayed they would not do it at A) 33,000 feet because, it is close to the
troposphere, depending on season and latitude, therefore would be wasted if trying to spread on the surface. B) They would not do it in broad
daylight so everyone could see!! They would do it at night, at a lower altitude, like a cropduster.
You see, the conspiracy falls apart because: Some assert it is an effort at weather control...therefore must be done in daylight. But those who
assert this say it is the Government trying to prevent Global Warming...that would be a GOOD thing, if true.
Others assert chemicals are being sprayed for some nefarious purpose, as in poisoning our own citizens, or whatever. Seriously, think logically for a
minute...if chemicals are being sprayed to 'poison' us, then it would be more covert...i.e., at night and at low altitude!!!
Mass hysteria is a tricky phenom....guess the internet can contribute to the concept.....
