Trace amounts of uncombusted and partially combusted fuel and fuel additives in contrails are not evidence of purposeful spraying of the populace for
conspiratorial reasons. Water and CO2 are "chemicals" and frozen water is what is visible as contrails. The discussion has to do with additional
materials that are secretly being sprayed on the unsuspecting public, for reasons unknown, by generating fake contrails or including materials within
existing contrails. There is no agreement on which it is or what is being sprayed and for what purpose. The theories are completely unsupported by
anything but feelings about it, much like Santa and the Tooth Fairy have solid evidence by belief.
There is no evidence that there is anything in contrails that would have any effect on the public. Spraying anything from 30,000+ feet is generally a
really inefficient way to deliver a secret formula to a target. Dilution effects of al compounds and solar photolysis of any organics dispersed at
high altitude would require much larger amounts of materials than, for example, silent-mode helo spraying at night after a contrived power failure.
The people who advance this chemtrail theory do not understand much in the way of science, engineering, pharmaceutics, and simple logistics.
There is also an underlying financial reason for the apparent illogical denial of some posters as they are selling books and CD's to others and have
a vested interest in a debate. Bad news sells. When sales drop, the threads are restarted with new claims.
References are disjointed and the posters are often unaware of the details of reference contents as they are just key-word links. Generally, if there
are many references, the poster is either confused or is trying to confuse others with volume of references. In the references of legitimate but
irrelevant material, such as patents and legislative papers, they will slip in references of dubious origin that merely fear monger without logical
Posters who investigate and read their references are targets of childish rants when they analyze said references and state the truth. The attacks get
personal and show the underlying desperation of the chemtrail proponent to feel important or possibly increase sales of his/her books and CD's.
The latest posts, having nothing else, are claiming barium and aluminum compounds are raining down from contrails. The amounts of these compounds one
would have to disperse to show any effect on the population would be large enough to noticeably perturb the market prices of these materials. Likely,
this tack will soon prove untenable to all but the most mentally unhinged of the chemtrailers.
As we move on, I look forward to hearing about the rest of the periodic table in posts by our amateur scientists as they surf the net. Their logic
defies description and their scientific methodology is certainly an example. Of course, until a contrail is sampled or a secret plan accidentally
posted on you tube is discovered, they have no case but, as we say,"that's entertainment."
